This Newsletter is dedicated to great pieces of vinyl Mymusicfix gives our highest rating as unique cover to cover masterpieces.
Mymusicfix never puts a title up on our website until we've play-tested a copy to ensure the quality of the pressing.
Every once in a while we select artists/groups we've never heard before to play-test for the potential of carrying on our site. (We will admit there are 50 titles not selected to the one rare one we fell in love with).
In this Newsletter are what we call "FixPicks". They are rare limited editions that "blow our socks off as outstanding albums that somehow slipped through the cracks with us over the years.
Most are albums that were originally released in the 60's and had a limited re-issue pressing over the last decade.
Here are the artists that Mymusicfix feels will "blow your socks off" with cover to cover pleasure. Most are the types of albums that your fingers and toes will be a-poppin'. The groove is outstanding. There is a real gap between those artists who were lucky enough to have a label with the marketing dollars to promote them correctly and those who did not.
These must not have had the marketing dollars but what they produced was a masterpiece.
Billy Hawks with his Bluesy/Soul singing style incorporated with outstanding instrumentals. Both his albums in this Newsletter are real keepers.
The Young/Holt Trio consisted of the other two members of the original Ramsey Lewis Trio.
Their albums kept the Ramsey Lewis Trio feel where in my opinion Ramsey lost his way without Young/Holt.
