Record of the Day #16 – Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin, The High Country

I have a lot of love for Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin. Maybe it’s because their name makes me think of Jim Carrey films.

Record of the Day #7 – Fireworks, Gospel

I wrote yesterday about what I’m pretty sure was the fourth record I ever bought. Today I’ve turned my attention to the third record I ever bought – Gospel by Fireworks.
