Groovy Record Show Finds

After DJing for 8 hours straight last night, with one bathroom break (don’t ask me how I did it), I managed to pull myself out of bed at 7:30 AM to meet up with DJ Prime and DJ Skills to hit up the Groovy Productions Record show relocated to Hazlet, NJ. That’s a bonus for me, because Hazlet is a lot closer than it’s former home in Edison. I don’t know if the weather had anything to do with it, but although the dealer portion of the show was filled up, it seemed the record digger portion was a bit smaller. It was the first show since they moved it, and also a year since they even did a show. We also got up at the butt crack of dawn to do it, and as we left at 12:30, heads were still rolling in. Whatever the case, the three of us scored. As a matter of fact, the early time admission we paid was spent at only one table: 20 boxes of 45s, $3 a piece. After what seemed like an hour and a half of digging/ listening on portables, I had to get up. It seemed we attracted a lot of attention ( I have no idea why), because a lot of Asian diggers were checking us out. The guy even pulled the old “hey let me scratch my leg and look at what you’re playing” trick. All he had to do was ask, I don’t mind sharing. We found another table with $2 45s, and that took up the rest of our time. Skills doesn’t buy 45s, instead opting for some soundtrack heat and assorted Latin goodies. Prime and I definitely scored big. It was the best day digging I’ve had in a while. Below are the finds I dug up, all on 45. I’ll be serving up some of that goodness this week. Keep Diggin’!

  2. nice haul!

    if you have extra copies of the calvin arnold let me know, mines a bit worn and in need of a replacement/upgrade. i hate styrene. 😦

  3. Damn! Hit me with some of that Charles Wright, please! The Watts Rhythm Band is one of the best funk outfits ever, hands down.

    Nice blog, keep up the fine work.


  4. Wow, all for $2 each!

    Over here in England, the dealer would be greedily rifling through Manship’s Price Guide and charging £10 each minimum…

    Love the twang at the start of the Calvin Arnold track!


  5. any info on lonnie youngblood – man to woman, i barely remember this song but had forgot about it, do you have it on cassette or any other format.
