Lefty Frizzell was a country/honky tonk singer that died at the early age of 47. He very much influenced some of country music's earliest talent. Including Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson & Keith Whitley.

I found this 45 today when I was at Extreme Noise here in Minneapolis with a friend. They had boxes upon boxes of old 45's that they were selling for $1 each and if you bought 3 you got charged for the price of 2. Let's just say I walked out with a handful. So more entry's will be done.

What I like most about this song is the lyric "I have been in the arms of my best friends wife". So good.

Well, it is Monday so I figured I would start out with something very low key. I found this 45 last summer when I was record shopping with an ex. She was actually the one that pointed it out because she knew how much I loved Phil Elverum/Mount Eerie/The Microphones. I checked it out and noticed it was a split with a group called "Love of Everything" (not to be confused with Love As Laughter). I took it home and decided to surprise myself with the b-side of the record and out came this very lo-fi gem. I also found out that it is one person in Love of Everything and not a band.

Anyways, this is a decent split. With a bedroom recording on one side and another side recorded in a church. Too bad you will not be able to get one because these have been out of print for some time, but hey. Ya never know.

The Fleetwoods - Truly Do b/w Runaround





The Fleetwoods - Truly Do b/w Runaround (1960)

The Fleetwoods were a singing trio from Olympia, WA formed in the late 1950's. This 45 also came in the "grab bag" that my old roommate gave me. My favorite track on here is "Runaround". Songs about love, the lack of love and adoration, music isn't really made like this anymore and that in turn kind of makes me sad, frustrated and annoyed. They were mainly known for there single "Come Softly to Me" which was played in the 1986 film "Stand by Me". Well all know that one

I don't know very much about Krishna Fats. There isn't a lot written down about this band or even if it is a band. I got this 45 record from my old roommate in the summer of 2008. He purchased a grab bag at Treehouse for $2 and got a bunch of 45's that he didn't really enjoy so he gave them to me at no charge. Anyways, This record is pretty amazing. If you by any chance own any Krishna Fats on vinyl or know more about this group, please let me know.

Jacuzzi Boys - Island Ave 45




Jacuzzi Boys - Island Ave. (2008)

click for larger image

The Jacuzzi Boys are by far one of my favorite bands at the moment. Mixing sounds of surf rock with some type of psychedelic feel as well. This 45 is the 2nd pressing of there "Island Ave." single. It was released by HoZac Records in Chicago, IL. You might recognize those guys from the magazine called "Horizontal Action" but they also release great 45's in small pressings that sell out very, very fast. Some times within days. Almost everything HoZac has put out I have tried to get my hands on. Check out: Catatonic Youth, Medication, NoBunny and Art Thieves. Great stuff.
