i think that's the one on avi- with the excello singles plus his demos. avi went out of business years ago- and those tracks aren't around on anything other than euro bootlegs- choo choo rock n roll and something else.

we could sell that one all day long if we could get ahold of a bunch. will keep looking.

it's not even listed on gemm.

so... if you see it, grab it!

I'm A Ding Dong Daddy From A Rock N Roll City!!

Jerry McCain is probably my fave old blues/r&b stuff. the bell in Bell In My Heart is ridiculous and great.

didnt Norton or someone put out a series of jukebox eps? they still around?

yes, those you can get.

we've got "my next door neighbor"/"crying like a fool"

and "a cutie named judy" / "it must be love"

3.49 each.

complete genius.

The "Turn Your Damper Down with Jerry McCain" LP on Black and Allright records is also right worthy.

Is this the guy who does "Cadallaic Wellfare Blues?"

Yeah, I guess Get Hip had a small supply about a year or two ago and I missed the damn boat. If anybody has a copy and can burn me one, I'd gladly pay.

Eric, better yet, you should get ahold of ol'Jerry (he's alive and kickin' in Alabama) and re-release that shit.

yeah, everyone needs all those jerry mccain demos, definitely some of the craziest rock'n'roll ever! some of the songs sound like they could be on supercharger "Goes way out" or something. definitely pick up every one of the jukebox 7"s on norton. i think there's 5 of 'em. or the cd if you can track it down. i know crypt records carries some of the jerry mccain stuff.

I've been trying to find that Jerry McCain CD with the demos on it as well. I heard those demo songs are some of most lo-fi rock'n'roll ever recorded, and that they even make my own recordings sound produced.

Jerry McCain is a bad ass, I got the demos on the "That's What They Want" Comp years ago from Crypt

I blew too much on that White Label comp about two years before the the others came out. Fuck that, it was totally worth it...

Just ordered "The Jig Is Up" from Crypt. It has all of the tracks from the AVI release plus a couple more singles. Don't know whether it's a boot or not. Eric, maybe you could score some of these somewhere?

yeah, let me know what it is. can't find a listing anywhere other than crypt.

Got it today. 31 tracks on the Atom Bomb label, no address. #JMC2111. It says the complete 50's recordings, but I think there's a couple misssing. It has 8 tracks from the crazy crazy 1955 living room recordings (I thought there were a few more). All in all, its some righteous shit. The tracks aren't in chronological order, it starts w/'56-'59, then '54, then '53, then'55, and ends with '60 and '62.
