Listen: I Don’t Have To Worry / The Quotations
Sifting, separating. Everyone’s favorite thing to do with records.
In this particular case, I’m referring to the 45′s. Really making headway, immersing some big collections I’ve acquired into the master library, and finding doubles. Always a joy. Every so often a box is partially jammed with “where the hell did this stuff come from” items. Not via the aforementioned collections, but most likely garage and estate sales, church rummages and one of my favorite places for Northern and obscure soul, Academy Records in Williamsburg.
I’ve covered my love for the place previously, and never walk out with less than one gem, usually for $1 or lower.
So tonight, Phil came by for several hours of spinning and filing. We stumbled on a big pile of soul and Northern stuff, most likely from Academy, and found some real shockers. Like this one.
No sooner than ten seconds in, we were pawing through THE NORTHERN SOUL PRICE GUIDE, knowing surely it’d be there. Not wrong, The Quotations’ ‘I Don’t Have To Worry’ listed loudly as very, very desirable. And not without justification.
It isn’t often we repeat a single more than once when faced with a box that needs playing. This one got three spins.
No idea where these guys are from, nor do I know wack about their origins.
