johnny cash - so doggone lonesome 7 inch usa 1958

we all like mr. cash it seems and for my quarter of a ha'pennies worth, this is one of his best. 'so doggone lonesome' is an absolute classic and so is 'cry cry cry'. two better songs could not be on the same record together but they are. it seems nowadays that everyman and his woman love jr. we all do i suppose. hes great. there is a few people or bands that i really dont mind everyone liking. they are elvis, the jam, the specials, the ramones, stiff little fingers and john jr himself. hes of scottish blood and stock too and even claims his family run as far back as some scottish queen who i cant remember the name of. my son has the proud fact of knowing that i took him to see johnny on his last ever swedish appearence at the lollipop festival, in a pram, in 1997. who wouldnt want that story being told and told again to him. ''one lonely hour seems forever, thats 60 minutes more to wait for you.'' r.i.p big man.

naked raygun - vanilla blue 7 inch chicago 1987

chicagos naked raygun sounding a bit like early 'dinosaur jr'. funnily enough its from around the same time. so was it really, early dinosaur jr sounded like naked raygun. they look like boring gits and they never really appealed that much, but this and the song 'rat patrol' are stormers. the 7 inch comes in a nice package as well and funky coloured vinyl. fat.
