Nice records. 8-) One day I’ll find cool records like these instead of the usual Organ solos, polkas, waltzes, and 40’s easy listening stuff I always find. *Sigh* If only Charley Patton and Blind Blake records were as common as Wayne King and Ken Griffin records. Lol.

Not all Wayne King records are bad. Same with all Kay Kyser records. Their early Scroll Victors come to mind.

Can't help you on Ken Griffin, though. The words "Free Packer" come to mind.

I guess Wayne’s earliest stuff might be good I guess I have an early 33 rpm from 1932 of his maybe I should listen to it once... I almost judged all of Fred Waring’s records based off his Decca stuff. Thankfully I didn’t. ;)

For those things you'd have better luck living in certain areas, like the south / south eastern United States. Stuff still turns up there occasionally. In the video is shown what appears to be a decent condition Johnny Cash Sun (I Walk The Line, probably his signature song) purchased for ten dollars, which is a pretty good deal these days. I never seen Sun 78's where I live, though I have seen some 45's.
