January 23, 2017 Records of the Day

newbeats-45newbeats-albumLarry Henley co-wrote a song that has become a standard and first made famous by Bette Midler. That song is “Wind beneath My Wings.” But in 1964 Henley was a member of the Newbeats who hit big with a silly song called “Bread & Butter.”  The 45 may get you a loaf of bread and a stick of butter. It’s worth now more than $10.00. In 1965 Hickory records released the album “Bread & Butter” by the Newbeats. A mono copy can fetch $50.00. But a stereo copy can sell for $125.00 today.
