Record Store Day-- Part 3: Two Real Goodies

I'd say they should change the name of the event to National Record Store Day next year.

The two last albums I found were two really special ones to me, especially from my college days.

MOVIN' TOWARD HAPPINESS--  MASON PROFFIT--  This one was special since I had never heard of it.  These guys used to play all the time at Northern Illinois University when I was there 1969-1971 and 1972-1973.  I got to thinking they must be a local band.  They are most famous for "Two Hangmen" but I like all their songs.

This joins my four other albums by them:

ROCKFISH CROSSING
MASON PROFFIT
BAREBACK RIDER
COME & GONE


WORDS OF EARNEST--  GOOSE CREEK SYMPHONY

This one I saw after I had bought the others.  I already have a copy of it, but that one is a bit worn out for some reason.

This one joins "DO YOUR THING BUT DON'T TOUCH MINE"

I'd classify both groups as Country Rock.
