Sample This !

We found a treasure trove of sampler albums over at Willard's and thought, hey, wouldn't it be nice to sample some of these bargain bin samplers from the 60's through the 80's on the podcast.  These were albums issued by various labels to promote new artists and some needing a little boost in sales. They usually sold for about a dollar per disc, but most of the ones I had were salvaged from the cut out bin . A while they were discards to most folks, they always opened up new musical vistas in the 1960's and 70's for your host. Listen to these:
