A Bit of MSR
As I think I've mentioned here before, I'm not really a fan of the MSR label. There are records on the label (mostly from their early years) that I just love, but generally, I find them far less interesting than the records their competitors were making at the time. Oddly enough, MSR was a sister label to Preview, whose records from much the same era I often just love. I do find it odd that the compilation CD series was titled "MSR madness" - they wouldn't be the label I would focus on.
I do, however, know that I'm in the minority with this, so I thought I should make the effort from time to time to share a sample of the many MSR 45's in my collection. Here's one featuring Bobbi Boyle and Dick Kent.
First up is Bobbi Boyle with "Seeking":
And here's Dick Kent, on the flip side, with the clunkily titled "Oh, Juanita, My Sweet Senorita":
