The vinyl worried me.  It was quite clicky but it declicked very well.  I don't hear much of anything on headphones.  Very nice.  The album is classic Joe.  I can remember hearing The Name of the Game when it first came out.  Perhaps on CHUM FM?  Joe continues to be a national treasure of Canada.

The vinyl sounds really good.  It was in pretty fine shape to begin with and the de-clicking did wonders.  Rock is not the best singer in the world.  With his deep voice, he sounds a little like a poor man's Johnny Cash in spots.

This is probably available on CD.  This is my vinyl copy.  I bought this at the old Arron Records when they were on Melrose.  They had a few 29 cent bins.  I still have the price tag on my copy.  I miss those days and that record store.  The vinyl sounds great.  The music is hard rockin' fare.

The sound quality of this is mostly good.  Especially since it's from 1958.  There is some awkward vinyl noise at the beginning of side two and a tiny bit of distortion.  Even there, it clears up after a short time.  The music is mellow and just what every girl needs to get in that special mood.

This album sounded good except for the very first song.  I had to use a different source.  It had some weird bloopy/audio tape like distortion.  I have no idea what it was but it's nowhere else on the record.  This is absolutely The Lettermen formula.  Nice harmonies and silk smooth delivery of songs of young romance.

In speakers this sounds surprisingly great.  It de-clicked marvelously.  On headphones, you can hear that the quality of the vinyl was shit.  That said, for a cut-rate pressing shop like Hi-fi Tops... this is pretty damn good.  Bill is a pretty good singer.  Not the most exciting performer on Earth, but enjoyable.

Obscure lounge title from Tops. The album gimmick was to cover songs with the word "love" in the title.

From the back cover: Bill Lawrence, one of the most exciting baritones on the scene today, has been pointing for a singing career ever since he made a lusty contribution to school and church plays. Even before he reached his teens, he was the prize of the local radio station of St. Louis, Mo. and the high spot on many an ameteur hour. Bill's first break came when he won an amateur contest at the Marcel Theatre in Los Angeles where he was ushering.

Lawrence went on to front Jimmy Dorsey's band for seven months and then he won The Arthur Godfrey Show (talent contest) And then became regular guest (1949-50).

This made "...him (Lawrence) one of the most spectacular stars in the world of popular music." And then straight into obscurity. Frankly, this happens to more talented people than you can count.

Lusty contribution to school and church plays? The copy writer wasn't on Bill's side.

There is some surface noise on this album.  It's over 50 years old, so I forgive it.  Is it terrible?  No.  There's no real distortion and the surface noise is only here and there.  The record is thoroughly enjoyable.  I really liked this sucker.

A set that recreates the sweet harmony style the first four King Sisters brought to the music world in the late 50s – but updates their sound wonderfully with some hip 60s flair! Ralph Carmichael handles the arrangements, and he borrows from a lot of the best sorts of 60s pop vocal modes – touches of bossa here, groovy jazz there, mixed in with the warmer strings that are usually the Carmichael approach! There's a bit of Jimmy Bowman-esque bass bumping along the bottom at times, which makes for an especially nice groove – and titles include "Goin Out Of My Head", "Girl Talk", "The Shadow Of Your Smile", "Call Me", "I'm Old Fashioned", "Bluesette", "I Get The Blues When It Rains", and "Don't Go To Strangers". (White label promo. Cover has some tape and a smalll rip on the spine, a promo sticker, splitting on the bottom seam, and WGN Library letters on the back.)

W. Johnson: vocals, guitar / R. Strutter: bass, vocals / A. Bines: drums, vocals / M. Gallagher: keyboards.
Wilko Johnson (born John Wilkinson, 12 July 1947, Canvey Island, Essex) is an English guitarist and songwriter, particularly associated with the UK rhythm and blues band Dr. Feelgood in the 1970s.
W. Johnson played in several local groups before moving to the University of Newcastle upon Tyne to study English. After graduating, he travelled overland to India, before returning to Essex to play with the Pigboy Charlie Band, which evolved into Dr. Feelgood: a mainstay of the 1970s pub rock movement.
Wilko J. developed his own style, coupling a choppy guitar style with a novel dress sense (he favoured a black suit and a highly unfashionable, unpopular and unique pudding bowl haircut) and jerky movements.
Wilko J. plays a vintage Fender Telecaster without using a pick, something that enables him to play rhythm guitar and riffs or solos at the same time, resulting in a highly percussive guitar style. Another reason for his unique style is that he is naturally left-handed, but plays guitar right-handed. His style - which allowed him to move around abruptly on stage with the jerky movements of an automaton without the fear of losing his pick - evolved from a failed attempt to copy Mick Green of Johnny Kidd and The Pirates, a guitarist he admired. During mid-song guitar breaks he would frequently wander across the stage and cut in front of the singer (usually playing a harmonica) with the aid of the longest guitar lead in British rock music (precise length unknown) from his amplifier. He maintained this style even after leaving Dr. Feelgood.
His style formed the essential force behind Dr. Feelgood during their initial years, including the band's first four albums, "Down by the Jetty", "Malpractice", "Stupidity" and "Sneakin' Suspicion", all released between 1975 and 1977. Wilko J. had a cult following amongst fans of the four-piece band, helped by some electrifying stage performance during their extensive UK and north European touring of that period.[citation needed] The live album, Stupidity, reached number one in the UK Albums Chart, but although Johnson played on Dr. Feelgood's first 5 single releases, including "Roxette" and "Back in the Night", the only single to chart during his membership of the band was "Sneakin' Suspicion". He left the band in April 1977, following disagreements over the tracks to be included in the "Sneakin' Suspicion" album.

The sounds on this is very good.  I de-clicked it and it's sounds pretty stellar through the speakers.  When I pick albums from the shelves to digitize, it's completely at random.  This looked a very ordinary record but something about it caught my fancy.  It wasn't until I looked for a pic of the cover online did I find out how valuable this sucker is.  It fetches a fortune!  It's a nice folk album with nice harmonies but it's a private pressing and there are very few existing copies.  Mine is practically mint.  The cover is immaculate.  I don't even know where I got this but I'm glad I have it.

The Dolan brothers were from Birmingham originally, although they moved down to Cornwall with Mike Carless to get the band underway. They were basically a hippie outfit who played a brand of progressive rock with some cover versions thrown in. Their first 45, Rain, was a re-arrangement of The Beatles' song. Steve Dolan was later involved with Pete Sinfield's Under The Sky.

When I see "Unbreakable" on a record label, I automatically brace myself for the worst.  This record was in really good shape though.  I really like this album.  Lisa has a nice expressive voice and the song selection is very enjoyable.  Because it's a live record and the applause bleeds between songs, I have left the sides intact and not cut them up into tracks.

02 I'm Sitting on Top of the World

The vinyl is in great shape.  Got this at the late/great Moby Disc on Ventura Blvd.  The albums isn't quite as appealing as Once Bitten (also on this blog) but has some songs to recommend it.

The vinyl is in great shape.  I got this at the old Moby Disc on Ventura Blvd.  God, how I miss that store.  There's a nice version of Riders on the Storm.  I also like the title track quite a bit.

The vinyl sounds great.  I picked this up at Record Surplus on Pico.  Actually quite an enjoyable album.  Some Twin Ton stuff is just a bit too raucous for me but this maintains a tunefulness along with the aggression.

The vinyl sounds great.  I'm not a big fan of this album.  It's a bit dance club toss-off.  I'm not a big funk guy and this drifts into that territory.  Probably an attempt to get into the disco market but not my cup of tea.  

01 something lacking in me.mp3
02 don't break a heart.mp3

The vinyl on this sounds terrific.  Dr. Jon is especially likable.  I did read somewhere on the internet that Jon ended up in a mental institution, had an affair with a nurse there, married her then killed her.  If it's true, that is really a story that should be made into a movie.
I am madly in love with this cover.

Info stolen From This Great Site
The male-female duo Jon & Robin are thought of as a one-hit wonder for their playful 1967 Top 20 hit “Do It Again a Little Bit Slower.” Actually, however, they recorded quite a bit in the mid-to-late ’60s, with an engaging if somewhat lightweight style craftily mixing AM radio mid-’60s pop/rock with a little psychedelia and Southern soul.
“Do It Again a Little Bit Slower” was certainly the best of their discs, with its likable male-female vocal tradeoffs, a “Cool Jerk”-like soul piano riff at strategic points, and an effective fadeout that languorously stretched out the suggestive title phrase.
But their two LPs and a bunch of 1965-1969 singles included some enjoyable material as well, devised with help from some fine songwriters and some of the best production and backup musician talent in their Dallas base.
The male half of the duo, Jon Abdnor, had recorded some solo singles for his millionaire father’s Abnak label before hooking up with teenage singer Javonne Braga, who was billed as “Robin” on the records the pair made together. Their one national hit, “Do It Again a Little Bit Slower” (see previous post) came from the pen of Wayne Carson Thompson, most famous for writing the Boxtops’ “The Letter.”
The duo also recorded several other Thompson compositions, including the fairly gritty soul-popper “Dr. Jon (The Medicine Man),” which was a big hit in Texas, although it didn’t break nationally. Jon & Robin themselves wrote little original material, although they did benefit from production by ex-rockabilly star Dale Hawkins and Mike Rabon of the Five Americans, a fellow Abnak act.
Indeed, several of the Five Americans played on some Jon & Robin sessions, and another Abnak artist, soul singer Bobby Patterson, also helped out with some of their recordings. By the end of the 1960s, however, Jon & Robin had split, though Jon Abdnor did put out a 1969 solo LP, Intro to Change, billed to John Howard Abdnor & the Involvement. (Richie Unterberger)
