Willis Wade…too deep!

There are lots of small regional labels that put out records like this. Many from the South with the featured artist in the gaudiest, most tacky, showbiz outfit. Often with the touring bus in the background. But this one that Tony laid on me out of the blue transcends the ordinary and defines the genre for me. Such is Willis Wade. Isn’t he fabulous!

Now I gotta find a copy. Anyone?

Bardot

There are probably hundreds of records around the world with Brigitte Bardot on the cover.   This is one from Japan.   It’s a book of flexi-discs with movie music.   Tony has many more!
