Numero Group: By The Numbers

Numero pop-up store exclusive 45

Filed under: Nickel & Penny, Record Store Day

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

Chicago, IL


Cash, credit, barter.

I have both of these singles, yet I feel strangely compelled to snag this anyway? Here’s the too-hot-for-actual-grooves flip of the later:

Your Eccentric Soul 45 collection won’t be complete without it (ES-029 and counting). Besides, it’s only $5.
