10 NEW AND ORIGINAL SONG HITS WITH A C.B. THEME

VARIOUS ARTISTS – “10 NEW AND ORIGINAL HITS WITH A C.B. THEME” (197?)

I used to have this LP years ago, what is ed back when I was a firm believer in the healing power of dusty fingers. As a kid, medical I’d rub my fingertips raw combing through the cheap stacks at Record Surplus, cialis Rhino Records and House of Records, which were all with a few miles of each other on the westside of L.A. (sadly, only Records Surplus remains).

Don’t quote me on this, but this LP may possibly be the only album release on Realistic Records, which I’m guessing was a Radio Shack imprint.

There’s actually some well-put-together stuff on here; of course, there’s the gem “Hey Shirley (This Is Squirrley)”, which posits the question “What if Alvin and the Chipmunks became C.B. enthusiasts?”, but there’s also the very catchy, very retard-o “Come On, Come On, CB Baby”, and the astounding “The Night I Talked To The Lord”, about God appearing one night on the ol’ 19!

    …imagine my surprise when this turned out NOT to be various renditions of “Convoy”.

    Wow, I have this on 8 Track!

  3. Looks like there’s only one other non-sound-industry recording on Realistic, but who could ever forget “Smoke Gets In My Moog”?

    Ah, I remember this one.

    There were at least two other albums I remember on Realistic’s label — Top Hits of the 50s and Top Hits of the 60s.

    Man, you touched my ‘dusty bone’ with the mention of ‘Record Surplus’. I used to start down south on Pico with ‘Record Rover’ and finish the day at Rhino in Westwood…stopping along the way at several great smaller shop whose names were so generic I cannot any longer recall them (all within blocks of Surplus though). Of course ‘Surplus’ was the ‘main course’ :)

    Don’t know if it is still up there, but I was in the background of the picture on the bulletin board they had of ‘Captain Vinyl’s’ first in-store appearance (I am in the black & white stripped shirt) Circa 1991? :)

    Some days I weep for the loss of those great shops but then again, I NEVER in a million years would find such troves of great, rare, and oddball vinyl as I find on blogs such as your so I guess it’s one of those ‘The King Is Dead, Long Live The King’ situations.
