Subject: Records you're Still Looking For
From: Jerry Rasmussen
Date: 03 Mar 05 - 11:57 AM

Tops on my list was Skokiann by the Bullawayo Sweet Rhythm Band. It took me close to 30 years to finally find it re-issued. Don't Go To Strangers by the Orioles took even longer. The only re-issue was on a Boxed set of everything they ever recorded, which sold for something like $160. All the other collections left out Don't Go To Strangers. Finally, I found an import "Best Of" that has the recording on it. It sounded as sweet as I remember it, when I finally put the CD on to play. The original recording of The Mockingbird by the Four Lads has never been re-issued, but I still have my 45 rpm and a re-recorded version that isn't as good on another "Best Of" collection. Today, I ordered a not yet released CD of the Four Lads which has Harmony Brown on it... another recording I've wanted to hear again for years.

That leaves

Guitar Boogie Shuffle by the Supersonics (later "covered by the Ventures)
Bluebird Over the Mountains by Ersel Hickey
The first Insect Trust album, which HAS been re-issued but is a little pricey for my tastes

I'm sure a couple of ohers will come to mind.

Are there any recordings you've been looking for for years, and haven't found? Or found recently, as I have?

Jerry

I finally found information about a recording I've been looking for for about thirty years. It seems that a white Southern Gospel a cappella group known as the Harmoneers are responsible for the song that I've been searching for, "The Hallelujah Boogie". I suspected but could not remember that it was an RCA label 45rpm. I did remember that it was a green translucent record. I also found that is was recorded in the early 50s and that it is RCA #0321, but still have had no luck locating a copy.

Bill, I've got THREE albums by Walter Forbes, including the one in question.

Ballads and Bluegrass RCA Victor 2472, 1962
Folk Song Festival RCA Victor 2670, 1963
Nashville Coyote JMI 4005, 1973

I saw Walter Forbes in person at the Grand Ol' Opry (I still remember that he did Cumberland Mountain Deer Chase!) and was mightily impressed. When I saw 2472 in the stores, I really wanted it and always intended to buy it, but money was tight in those days right after college, and I delayed too long. All of a sudden it was gone, and though I looked everywhere, I had no luck. Periodic searches over the years came up empty. Then two or three years ago, I saw the lot on eBay, and really jumped. I am not sure anymore, but I think I may have paid $15 for the three of them.

At the moment, my equipment is not set up for ease of duplication, and I can't honestly say when it will be. We'll work on it.

One you and I have discussed before, Bill, was the second Perry County Music Makers album on Davis Unlimited. Still no luck on that one.

There are others, but that's enough for now.

"Skiffle in Stereo" by the Orange Blossom Jug Five (Lyrichord LLST 773) -- Dave Van Ronk's first record

"A Guy Called Carawan"   Guy Carawan (English Columbia SX 6065)

"Four For Fun" Rory & Alex McEwen with Richard and Carolyne [sic] Farina (Waverley ELP 113) -- a Scottish EP that included Richard Farina and his then wife Caroline Hester.

"Home Made Songs and Ballads" Paul Clayton (Monument M4001/SM14001)

I'd be real happy to find any of those, myself...

You never know. Collectors Choice Music reissues a lot of unusual stuff... I was looking to replace my Kaleidescope album but never could find it as a reissue. Now Collectors Choice has a 3 CD set for $21.95 that includes all FOUR of their Epic albums...

I also have picked up stuff on eBay... got all three Pennywhistler albums on vinyl for something like $15 total. I don't know that any of them have been reissued.

An album I had owned in the 60's was "Boss Guitar" by Wes Montgomery. I lent it to someone in 1968 and never got it back, and as it was on the Riverside label it was never re-issued until recently. I now have it on CD with bonus tracks after 35 years of searching.

Judy Garland recorded Bei Mir Bistu Scheyn (not necessarily with that spelling)
for one of the Andy Hardy movies. It was cut from the movie, but it's still around,
and I'm looking for it. Well, I found it on a CD set that has dozens of other
Judy Garland recordings, but it sells for more than I want to pay when I really
only want the one track. Maybe I'll see it on a remainder table someday....

Wesley S...I saw Sleepy Man Blues on ebay not too long ago...it was up to about $40, so I emailed Geoff thru his web site and declared him "officially vintage."

When I think of a recording for which I would be willing to pay way more than I probably should, I check out www.gemm.com. I have even found some of those Japanese CDs mentioned above of obscure recordings - also at no small expense, but I was sure glad to find them.

For me, I am looking for "You Are What You Eat" - various artists including John Simon, Tiny Tim, and others.

Good luck.

Loudon Wainwright's first album I just got last year on eBay after spending 30 years going into record shops and heading right for his section (Ha - if he had one!!).

I lent a friend Duster Bennett's first? album "Smilin' Like I'm Happy" about ten years ago. Sadly my friend died and I couldn't really go round to his house and ask "Before you sort out his stuff, can I have my album back?" ( I know he'll probably laugh at this!!)

I'm really fascinated to read these posts. It's not surprising that there are particular records that mean so much to each of us.

My niece's son, and I when he was about fifteen got into exchanging music. He wanted to hear all sorts of stuff and was pretty open minded about it. He had friends who started a Punk-Ska band and he wanted to hear more of the old ska and reggae, so I sent him a whole batch of cassettes of jazz, soul, rhythm and blues, folk, black gospel, reggae, ska... you name it. In return, he sent me a cassette that he put together titled "Music We lived Our Lives By." I thought it was SO great that a fifteen year old kid already realized his life had a soundtrack. So, I did one of my own and sent it to him.

Think I'll start a thread on this...

Mr. Rassmuessen



You certainly have more than one regrets from your past.



Perhaps, you should consider therapy?



Many MC'ers would perhaps volunteer to refresh the steams-of-consceinous they have traversed before your faltering trapsings. Some might free...others might require a fee (for the book, CD, consultation)



I think you need it.

My very small record collection includes one I bought second hand sometime in the 70's. I haven't played it for years as I gave away my old record player sometime in the early 90's after not using it for a long time.

A couple of years ago I found a track by the group on a compilation album - taken from a CD re-release of the LP!! It took a while to get it thru my favourite CD shop & it is as great as I remember & also has bonus tracks. A real treasure that I play a lot.

The record is Hush, only album by local group Extradition & is worth up to $1000. Literally a treasure.
