      Bad Girls by Donna Summer


      Label: Casablanca 988
      Year: 1979
      Condition: M
      Price: $9.50

      From a warehouse find, this is a new, unplayed stock copy, in its original Casablanca factory sleeve. Listening to this huge Disco hit from 1979, I realized I had to get a copy into my iTunes. Having done that, I also wanted it in our online "jukebox"... so now it is: Enjoy! Not for nothing does Dave Marsh rank this single, among so many of Summer's hits, at #531 in his Top 1,001 list. (The other Summer...

      Express by B.T. Express


      Label: Roadshow 7001
      Year: 1975
      Condition: M-
      Price: $8.00

      Although the string arrangement puts this instrumental firmly in the Disco mold, if you remove the strings you've got a groove and band that sounds like AWB's followup to "Pick Up The Pieces." The two are close in time, too: They were released within a month or two of each other. One side is a 5:00 'disco mix' and the other is an edited version of the 5:03 album cut.

      Dirty Water by Standells


      Label: Tower 185
      Year: 1966
      Condition: M-
      Last Price: $25.00. Not currently available for sale.

      An essential garage rock classic from this bad-boy Boston band. This copy has such great sound I had to make an mp3 "snippet" for you to hear... Enjoy! Note: This beautiful copy comes in a vintage Tower Records factory sleeve. It grades very close to Mint across the board (Labels, Vinyl, Audio). The vinyl has one notable scuff on the A side, but it has no effect on the...

      Sugar and Spice by Cryan' Shames


      Label: Destination 624
      Year: 1966
      Condition: M-
      Price: $20.00

      Delightful Garage/Sunshine Pop number would have been a bigger hit with better distribution. These tracks appeared on the group's first (1967) Columbia album, but I don't know if those are re-recorded versions or not. This beautiful copy had such great audio I had to make an mp3 "snippet" for our "jukebox"... so have a listen! Collector Nerd Alert: The band name is missing an apostrophe on this release....

      I'm Gonna Make You Mine by Lou Christie


      Label: Buddah 116
      Year: 1969
      Condition: M-
      Price: $18.00

      One of the catchiest bubblegum hits of 1969, which was probably the peak year for Bubblegum Rock. Note: This beautiful copy comes in a vintage Buddah Records sleeve. Although the wax surface appears to have a few light scuffs, the audio sounds pristine Mint!

      The Story In Your Eyes by Moody Blues


      Label: Threshold 67006
      Year: 1971
      Condition: M-
      Last Price: $11.00. Not currently available for sale.

      This great single is one of the few occasions when the group really rocked out big time... an essential Moody Blues track! Note: This copy comes in a vintage London Group Records factory sleeve. This beautiful copy has pristine audio. The labels grade very close to Mint.

      Cecilia by Simon & Garfunkel


      Label: Columbia 45133
      Year: 1970
      Condition: M-
      Price: $12.00

      Found one! This is a beautiful, Near Mint copy of the duo's second big hit from their best and, sadly, final album, Bridge Over Troubled Water. What the heck is that rhythm section doing, by the way? Anybody ever figure it out (without looking at the session notes)? By the way, it's not your imagination — the 45 rpm version of "Cecilia" is speeded up from the LP version, which probably explains why...
