Vacation 78s

Is a record collector ever really on vacation? The answer is no, of course. So on this, my second day of official vacation from my XM Radio show, I picked up a few great 78s. I was very pleased to find LaVern Baker doing a great version of "Trying", uncredited with the Todd Rhodes Orch backing her up as well as Sam Cooke doing his great rendition of "Summertime" as the original flip of "You Send Me". No Cardinals 78s today though. I still sit at 6 out of 12 Cardinals 78s on Atlantic. Someday....someday. Still, going through stacks of 78s on one's vacation is OK with me. I also finally found a mono copy of Rolling Stones "Now!" on London as well as Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers "The Big Beat" on Blue Note. It was a good day.
