Alright folks, here are a few more gems that I'll offer to you guys before the eBay world.





Lenny McDaniel & The New Era - Something Out Of Nothing b/w I Keep Telling Myself
  • Seven B #7016
  • Both sides are visually VG, and will probably sound VG+ or better with a good cleaning. There is a fair amount of crackle throughout, no skips though and a great dynamic range. Probably just a bit of nastiness in the grooves, I just don't have a quality cleaning setup here at the house and would rather not experiment with home-cleaning ideas on such a piece.


Turner Moore - I'll Be Leavin' You b/w I Love You Tenderly
  • Mel-o-Tone #M45-1500
  • Neiel Canady's (bassist on the record) personal copy
  • Visually VG+ ... sounds great!

That Turner Moore will likely not have any takers here, though one forum member did score a copy at an Austin garage sale last year. One of the rarest and best Texas rock n' roll 45s for sure, easy 4 figures in that shape. Ebay is your best bet.

I figured that would probably be the case for that one, but I promised you guys I'd put all my rarities up for sale here before eBay, so I'll ride it out a bit longer here then offer it to the 'civilians' on ebay.

Alright, I'm probably going to go the eBay route on these two. So, best of luck to any bidders.

Cheers,
DE

---Edit:

Both start this Monday (the 8th)

...and speaking of Texas records - I'll just throw this out there - If anybody has ever stumbled across any Joey Du'ambra/D'ambra/D and the Mellow-D's/Mellow-Teens (aside from Baby Sue/Come Back A Little Mama) I'd certainly be interested. I know there's more out there, I just can't find any of it.

Speaking of Texas records. Check out this unknown Texas Funk 45 I found recently. I found this in a radio station load I got here in Sacramento. I located the label owner in Texas who is in his 90s and couldn't get much out of him other than all his records were thrown out about 5 years ago (garage full) because they were warped and heated damaged. Can you imagine all the undamaged goodies that would have been in there? ;)
