The Vinyl District Takeover | Those Darlins

It's a wish list to the Big Man from Those Darlin's Linwood Regensburg... —Ed.

Dear Santa,
Please bring me these 45's whenever you find the time.


The Caravelles - "Hey Momma You've Been On My Mind" | Girl group magic from Britain. 'New York' is the B-side.

Television - "Little Johnny Jewel" | Out on Ork Records, TV's first release. Best guitar tone ever on this one.

Houston - "Solar Light" | Sounds like it coulda been on "I hear a new world."

Ronny Kae - "Swinging Drums" | Kae did some time with Sinatra and Tony Bennett before knocking out a few amazing instrumental sides.

The Stratfords - "Never Leave Me" | This song is one of those "shoulda been a super hit" songs. It did though make Baltimore's top 40 charts in 1964. James Kelly, who wrote it, runs powerful karaoke empire in the greater Baltimore area these days.

Shadow Casters - "Going to the Moon" | The B side for "It'll Be Too Late" single. These guys broke up before they got out of high school.

Ervin Litkei - "Music to Play E-S-P BY" | Perfect to put on if you're interested in staring and thinking of absolutely nothing. Litkei who died in 2000, also wrote presidential marches for every president since FDR.

The Ultra Mates - "Pitter Patter" | This disc is pretty impossible to find. Help.
