Last Record Store Day we opened up a little shop on Milwaukee Avenue in Chicago. In addition to providing the best selection of used LPs and 45s available in the city that day, we offered up a 45 you could only buy in that store, on that day. This was it:
We sold out of that 45 in about two hours.
This year, in honor of our pop up store and radio station, we made a 45 of three killer Chicago soul jingles. The first is a Richard Pegue (Nickel and Penny labels) production featuring Rotary Connection’s Sidney Barnes, recorded for Ember Furniture in 1969.
The second and third are from a team of producers that ran Tel-Fi Studios (Jim Porter [Jay Pee, Sagport, Erect labels], Richard Pegue, and Robert Pairs [Orr label], likely featuring South Shore Commission, and recorded for Greyhound in 1969. We’ve cut the pop-country opener and kept the mid-tempo funkers “Feeling Tired” and “Greyhound And Grooved”
In keeping with last year’s theme of manufactured rarity, we’re only pressing 100 of these, available on a first come, first served basis, for $5 each.
The pop up store details are as follows:
1035 North Western Avenue
Cash, credit, barter.
