Very new, and very groovy!

Two new items have recently arrived in my mailbox, and they are both so fabulous I have to share them, as they are truly in the spirit of this site.

First off, Dave over at Rare Byrds Prints put together this excellent poster of some great record label designs (many of which will be familiar to those of you who frequent these parts!). The print is very high quality and looks GREAT! Ready to frame and hang on the wall of your record room. Check it out HERE.



I often get emails from 'street teams' working with bands/ artists, and most of the time (actually, nearly 100% of the time) I check out the music and it has absolutely nothing to do with what I feature. As I musician myself, I know that it's important to find listeners, but most of the time these folks are just looking at sites that list music blogs and don't even bother looking at the format and spamming those sites. Not so with New Jersey's The One & Nines. This fabulous new soulful group just cut a KILLER single in Memphis and were kind enough to send a copy my way. The vibe of the record is just what one would want out of a 45, and the picture sleeve is swell, as well. while I dig the A side, it's the B side, 'Make It Easy" that just slays me, sung very sensually by Vera Sousa. I HIGHLY recommend buying this single, STAT. Here's "Make It Easy".

I really like the song, "Make It Easy". Very what they would call "retro" but it sounds like stuff I listened to way back in the day. Thanks for posting the song.
