Penny & The Quarters – You and Me

It was inevitable that some records got lost in the glut of music releases in the 1960s and 70s. The Internet era is no different; if anyone can produce and distribute music, they will. But thanks to the crate diggers at Numero Group, old sounds sound fresh again. These are the real lost tapes.

In 2005, while making his Saturday morning yard sale rounds around town, collector Blake Oliver stumbled upon a box of curiously marked tapes. At first, Oliver thought he’d found the lost masters from Clem Price and George Beter’s Columbus-based Prix label. But after a cursory listen, he realized that these were not the Prix masters, but rather demos and unreleased tracks from Prix’s Harmonic Sounds studio. Somehow, this was even better. In addition to Eddie Ray’s heart-stopping “Wait A Minute,” here were dozens of examples of what can only be described as “soul blueprints.”
