Here is another collection of songs that take me back. Most are 45s I had, ripped from them ol' seven-inch pieces of memory when I was given that USB turntable a few years ago.

16 Mary Had a Little Lamb Wings
197317 You Light Up My Life Carole King
18 Back When My Hair Was Short -single version Gunhill Road
19 Rocky Mountain Way Joe Walsh
20 Under the Boardwalk Rickie Lee Jones - 1983
21 It's the Real Thing The New Seekers - 1971
Track 2 is a recreation of the B side of my 45 release of "Mr Bojangles." The A side was the song by itself, as heard on the radio. Side B was the same song, prefaced with a spoken reminiscence from an old man talking about his life and his "singing" dog. When I finally heard the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band album I discovered several of these spoken tidbits sprinkled through the two sides.
For some reason, at Bartlesville's Madison Junior High School in 1970, it was a small catchphrase to mimic the old guy when he said to his dog, "Sit down, Teddy!"
The last cut is from a promo 45 given out at record stores, containing "the Coke song."
