Memphis in the Meantime

Still in Divshare hell, but while we're waiting, please enjoy (from sometime in the early 70s) the late great Chris Bell (with the equally late and great Alex Chilton on harmony vocals) and "You and Your Sister."

As heard (in a slightly different mix) in that incredible Big Star documentary I've been bugging you about for the last couple of days.

This one absolutely kills me. Seriously -- this could induce tears in a fricking rock.

The I Am the Cosmos // You and Your Sister single was a bitch to get in California.

I traded my New York Dolls "Trash" picture sleeve to a guy at the Capitol Records record swap to get it.

What a great B-side!!!

I had a copy -- I think I got it at Bleecker Bob's in the Village. Now also departed.

And yes, a great B-side.

There was a Bleecker Bob's out here for a while too. Out on Melrose in Hollywood. But I think that was in the 1980's and 1990's. Were they affiliated?

BTW, at that time, I had two "Trash" pix sleeves. Sold the other one for a considerable sum in the late 1980's.

Must have been. Bob was internationally known, or at least in those corners of the world that were interested in cool obscure rock n roll stuff.

See tomorrow's post for more details, actually.

Wonderful song. Sad story.

Bleecker Street Records is still open --- for now.
