Sharon Smith

Found this very obscure record during the "Great Colorado Record Hunt 2014, "last April.

In all of my years of collecting, can't say that I've run across any songs about twins, let alone one with a Colorado connection.

Folky femme vocals about the joys of monozygotic siblings, "Twinship." Vanity label (1980) with a Lakewood residential address.  Already looked it up - the singer has long since moved.  Flip side is another sweet and mellow folk offering, "Imagine Life to Be."

Sorry, I don't have an audio sample - it's pretty crunchy.



Richy C and the Casanovas



This one is a head-scratcher.  First off, the label says 1979, but it sounds like it was cut 20 years earlier.  Cover of the 1961 Gene Thomas hit "Sometimes."

Flip side is a standard Hispanic ballad ("A Medias De La Noche").

Was told this was a Pueblo-based group, on an Albuquerque label (Alta Vista 1148), but can't find anything on them, so I will throw this out there, and hope someone can offer up some info.  Thanks in advance.
