This is not one of those "timely" blogs. If a famous artist dies, you will not see a 5000 word eulogy with audio clips appear on this page within hours of the announcement (or ever for that matter.) BUT, in a small concession to topicality, I offer you this obscure bit of late seventies Star Trek homage, in honor of this summer's big blockbuster. REM released a cover version of this song in 1992, as a fan club only release. If you're patient enough, there is something strange going on in the trail off at the end of the disc. For your further pleasure, I have isolated and slowed this down, so that we may reach a fuller understanding of the artists intentions.
This is simply a blog where I post interesting 45s that I come across. I'm not an expert on records or music history and I'm fairly lazy, so don't expect a lot of exhaustive background or research. Comments are highly encouaged...
Most of the music files presented here come from my personal 45 collection and are posted for purposes of musical enlightenment only. These are mostly obscure songs, over 40 years old, that may not have been reissued on CD. The intention is to raise awareness of underappreciated artists/songs. If you like what you hear, seek these artists out on CD or get out there and find some of this old vinyl for yourself... If you are the copyright holder and wish any files to be removed, I will do so immediately upon request.
