Laurie Records LR 3366 1966
And now a glimpse into Your Old Pal Will's mind. A dream I had once upon a time regarding The 50/50s- There we were. Playing a show in the basement of a library. We had launched into our new cover song, a mashup of The Dream Syndicate’s “The Days of Wine and Roses” and Tears for Fears “Mad World” (here in the waking world, this not our current cover). Just then I spotted someone leaving the show with my copy of The Royal Guardsmen “Snoopy vs The Red Baron” 45. Naturally I had to nab the culprit, so I passed my guitar to that “Max” kid from Roswell to takeover. And now you know why no one cares about your dreams.

Snow Angel [35:47]
a side: "So Sick So Cool"
b side: "We Are Stars"

b side: "Is This It/Alone Together (home recordings)"
RCA Records 07863 60623-7 2002
The hot sounds of 2002, when everything old was new again and it was so awesome. For a while.

The Box Tops [52:25]
a side: "Soul Deep"
b side: "(The) Happy Song"
Mala 12,040 1969
Super awesome groove, with a mighty fine Alex Chilton-penned b-side. Oddly "Soul Deep" was covered the next year by country crooner Eddy Arnold. Crazy man, crazy.

Music behind the DJ: "The Red Baron" by Vince Guaraldi.
