Todd-o-phonic Todd:

In other news, "Misery" is the first soul record I ever bought but I only bought it at the time because I thought it was probably a garage record. This momentous moment in history came at The Union Marketplace which was in New Jersey but oddly enough not in Union, New Jersey.

Todd- let's face: garage records are mostly amateur attempt s to make tough sounding R&B records with much worse drummers and no church vocal training

@Fatherflot: Agreed! That's why I love them!

If any of you ever see a copy of The Dells "They Said It Couldn't Be Done" LP be sure and take a look at the back cover (after admiring the front).
