~White Witch~

Flea markets have always been an exciting and joyfull weekend past time for my husband and I, every saturday and sunday we’re up at the crack of dawn gathering together our scrambled sleepy heads to get out to the flea market to find some great scores before our friends Bungo and Southard. Most mornings they beat us to the punch either at Rt. 70 flea market or at Collingswood flea market… and I get to hear the GREAT SCORES they got… mean while on the inside my ass is TOTALLY on fire!

So this past Sunday (May 11th) we hurtle gurtle to get out of the house earlier then normal to beat the mother’s day crowd to see what we could find.

Needless to say, while getting the HAIRY eyeball for being a bin ahead (from the charming Mr. Love, a new vendors table no less, I stumbled across some REALLY totally AWESOME scores… one of which was the first “White Witch” record!! When I was flipping through the box of records… this guy just kept talking and talking about KISS to us… and in my head all I hear is Charlie Brown’s teacher “wha wha whawhahwhawha…. wha whaaaa”, all I wanted was some peace and quiet while I was focusing on flippin!!!! I came across the White Witch I nearly pooped in my pants… I might have even let out a little gas…lolololol…

This record has been a quest of mine for a long time… but I had a few tracks on tape that I had taped from a manual recorder from my friends’ moms turntable from previous years, of hanging with the wrong friends!

But here a quick little insight, but I have to make it fast cause I have to start getting my sexy on, for our 2nd Anniversary date!!!!!!!!!!!

Released in 1972 on Capricorn, this self titled album, their first, was a complete rockin, goofy psych album that reads kinda like a book for me.  The crazy, yet phenominal vocals of Ronn Goedert, rippin guitar leads of Buddy Richardson, and the silly (make your butt wiggle fun) fluttering keyboard, this album is great too trip out to whether your tripped out, fan of good msuic  or just high on life itself !!! The records has tons of ups and downs, perfect for 1972… and perfect for 2008!!!! Enjoy the tracks below…. and “a hui hou”… time to get FANCY looking!!!!!!


It’s so nice to be stoned

The Gift



Quick Flip The Tape…flip it!!

~The Loves~

Right now I am actually kind of working today BUT, I have to say that I kinda like working alone for the majority of the day now… Why? You ask… well basically, I get to come and go as I please and I get to play MY music, when ever and as loud as I want (within in moderation respectively), since you can’t bring vinyl to work with ya, I have been just bringing an abundance of tapes to work with me… and listening to rock N roll, and getting paid to do so, now if THAT’S not hard core… …

Since I am in heartfelt mood, I think I will let you in on a little love story.

It takes place about seven years ago, when I was totally conned into a bonfire at a boy’s house (Rich Angeleri) as my friend, who ironically enough I had just met 2 weeks prior… but she wanted me to actually shack up with Richie, and as we enter his gate, music playing, bonfire going… OUT pops Richie… being all crazy and making crazy sounds… and I was thinking to myself (You have GOT to be kidding right?) and we are all sitting there drinking having a good time when…

… IN comes this MAN wearing denim over leather (VERY METAL), his hair was long, and he was BY FAR the most BEAUTIFUL man I had EVER laid eyes on, as in my head was playing, Marvin Gaye – “Let’s Get It On” as his entire stride was in SLOWWWWWW motion… and THEN the record totally scratched when this totally cute blonde chick waltzes in RIGHT behind him, kind of a downer at this point.

So the night goes on, everyone is just having a blast and everyone is sitting round the fire and to the left of me was Larry (the MAN) and to the left of him was this other chick he walked in with. After talking all night about love, relationships, music, records, beer and METAL, hours later, my beer muscles STRONG, I some how got the nerve to ask the QUESTION! And out comes outta my mouth..

“So how long have you two been together (seeing how they were sitting next to each other all night) ?”

Larry looks me DEAD in the eyes with this TOTALLY great look and chuckles as he says “Her?…. OHHHHHHH no no no no, she likes Richie, I am totally single!” Needless to say, the needle (Marvin Gaye) picked up RIGHT where it left off!!!!!!

Many beers, songs, records, disagreements, roadtrips, cruises, seasons, laughs, girlly mags, shows and 7 years later… I still can’t get enough of Mr. Larry Love… not matter what… my favorite part is STILL going to bed every night with the person I love’s arms around me!

We got married in May of 2006… after 5 years of dating and 6-7 month engagement… we had a pretty traditional wedding… but also pretty metal too! The funniest thing about are wedding reception was that my folks were like “NO HEAVY METAL… you have to think of the guest and the family too”… and TOTALLY went against their wishes…lolololol… playing mostly rock N roll and metal, with some old 50’s doo-whop, some Etta James, some Jerry Reed, some Jennings, etc. But the funny thing about it was that EVERYONE was telling us how it was one of the MOST FUN receptions they had ever been to… So much for NO METAL… most of been the oldies that won them over…lolololololol…
