All I could do was cry.....

"Moanin' and Screamin'" was one of the first songs I posted on this blog. That file is no longer active, so it seems like a good time to make the song available again.

This is not a re-post in the usual sense because this copy of the 45 is much nicer than the one I ripped previously. I still own my old scratched-up copy, in fact it's the one I continue to play most often, but there's no denying that this is the superior recording.

Here's Diamond Joe Maryland's absolute monster of a debut from 1961....


  1. Beautiful. Late late late night record.

  2. How true Perrata...I was just thinking how I need to post something 'light' after this.

    For my own sake.

  3. Thanks Ana for the better copy of this great 45, I love it.

  4. Ooh, this new copy is much appreciated!!! What an absolutely wonderful song.

  5. Amazing blows people's minds when they hear it for the first time....
