I wonder if he has any original SUN 78s--I sometimes sell 50s 78s on eBay if I can get them. I had Elvis' One Night once--that is really rare came out in '58!!
Nice stuff- those fifties R&B 78s always percolated on the turntable. Next time, hope you're able to include perhaps Jesse Belvin, Clyde McPhatter, or Lloyd Price. Your Alan Freed reference reminds me of when he broadcast nightly from WINS, which back then was a second-story walk-up on Columbus Circle. Amazing days! Amazing music!
Ugh, 50s crap? Bring back the good stuff.
