A couple more of these vinyl oddities I've accumulated over the years.

First up this 1973 US single from Steppenwolf - a reissue of the downright brilliant 'Born To Wild' with the equally fab 'Magic Carpet Ride' on the flip.  The band's stuff was normally on the following labels -initially RCA Victor, then Stateside-Dunhill then Probe and finally ABC in the UK.  And RCA and then ABC in the US.  So just what is this doing on Roulette is a complete mystery to me - Canadian perhaps?  If anybody out there has any clue I'd be interested to hear from them.

The second selection for today is this 80's reissue of two classics from The Shangri-La's.  On the A Side the rather wonderful 'Remember (Walking In The Sand)' and 'Give Him A Great Big Kiss' on the flip.  It's issued on the golden oldies Collectables imprint - and has their catalogue number - but the label is Sun!  Strange but true!

More of these in due course.
