Numero Group: By The Numbers

Pulled along the way…

One of the best parts of going on the Eccentric Soul Revue tour was the record stores. Numero was hitting 3-5 different shops every day, plying our wares and emptying their bins. The absolute highlight of the 20 shops we visited had to be Used Kids in Columbus, Ohio, not only for their deep $1 racks, but because the proprieters have been big Numero supporters from day one. It hasn’t hurt that we’ve made three Columbus records in the past six years, we’ve given as good as we’ve got certainly. Except this time.

Tucked away under the counter in anticipation of our arrival was an acetate that a customer had turned up in the $1 bins, a record that could not be sold for $1. The entry for “stand up guy” should have a picture of Dan from Used Kids next to it. Not only did he refuse to sell it to the digger, he refused to sell it to us, instead he donated it to our growing archive of Columbus memorabilia. What you see above is an original cut of Johnson, Hawkins, Tatum & Durr’s “A World With Out You,” with Bill Moss’ unforgettable scribble on the bottom. Dan, if you’re reading this, you certainly made our day three Monday’s back.

Good for the archives and all that but bogus move on the part of the clerk. What’s the point of digging, if the store won’t let you buy the gems you find??? UNBLUES!
