Here we are at Number 10...hopefully this series will keep going for a while and I'll be able to make it twenty, or thirty, or even farther. To the moon!
There was a delay in making this one because I had to order a new stylus for the turntable...didn't want to ruin my records any more than they already have been ruined. So if these sound a little odd, it could be because the stylus hasn't been broken in yet - but they sound OK to my ears, so no worries there. On this one we've got a couple of overseas hitmakers (Blue Mink, Pickettywitch), some great promo-only records that never had a shot at being hits (Mancini & Fox), and even a complete mystery record (Child). Here's the track listing...
