Rick Bowen & Teresa Von - Want My Love 1980 (45")

Helllo my friends, I had the pleasure to present Rick Bowen and his album "Want My Love" three years ago. The album includes some nice songs with a variety of music styles.

I recently discovered a rare vinyl record 45" that includes the song "Want My Love". This song is a duet with Rick Bowen & Teresa Von. It is a different version than the album's one. In the disco version of the album the female vocalist Sue Robinson accompanies Rick Bowen on vocals. I came in contact with Rick Bowen himself and he told me that this vinyl record 45" was released at the same time with the album in 1980. Even though a year later disco music was dead, they tried to create a disco song for the album. However the final result was excellent!

The previous Sunday I included this rare song (version 45") on my playlist on the web radio Coni-OnAir.

Jimmi Mayes - Substitude For You 1987 (45")

Jimmi Mayes for more than fifty years has served as a sideman behind some of the greatest musicians and musical groups in history. Jimmi is a drummer from Chicago. He is also a vocalist, songwriter and an author. Jimmi Mayes played and toured with blues legends like Little Walter, Jimmy Reed and many others. Jimi Hendrix was one of Mayes' best friends, and they traveled together as members of Joey Dee and the Starliters in the mid-1960s.

In the late 60s, he formed his band Jimmy Mayes And The Soul Breed and later Jimmi Mayes & The Mill Street Depot. They released some singles from the mid 60s to early 80s.

In 1987 he released a single entitled "Substitute For You / Something About You I Like" under the name Jimmi Mayes And The Finess Band. It was released on Depo Records from Chicago. The song "Substitute For You" is a perfect atmospheric ballad. I love it!!!
He also released two CDs entitled "Messin' With The Kid" and "All My Best" in 2004 & 2012 respectively. Both CDs include old recordings and some recordings at that time.
I would like to note that Jimmi Mayes released a book in 2013 under the title "The Amazing Jimmi Mayes Sideman to the Stars".

Dale Vernon - Trembling In the Dark 1984 45"

I’m presenting you a rare record 45’ which was released on the label Budweiser Showdown. Several collectors collect records from the same label. Throughout the years, Budweiser Showdown has organized various events across the country through radio stations, in order to discover the next musical superstar.
Over 30 radio stations and over 5000 talented artists across the country participated in various contests from 1983 to 1989. In 1984 Dale Vernon was one of the local winners of the Budweiser Showdown contest taken place in the San Diego area. Having won the contest, Dale Vernon released on this label a record 45’’.
This record 45’ includes the song “Trembling In The Dark” which is a nice mid-tempo/ballad, featuring both Dale Vernon and an unknown female singer. I saw this record several years ago and it was an expensive one. In 2017, I was fortunate to find it again and buy it. The vinyl was in great condition, taking into consideration the fact that during the years all the times I had seen it the condition was always very bad. It is worthy to note that I have also found an mp3 format of the song, however the sound is a little bit different from the vinyl’s. I am very happy that I finally got this vinyl record 45’’.
