(Eastern Recording Co., 1662 7th. St.) Where Could I Go

So one of these doesn’t really belong (can you guess which?), but it's lyric inspired our title, and it's awesome and pretty unknown too. Many of the 45s were purchased recently, other tracks have been long time favorites. All apologies for the condition of the instant-cut disc that opens and closes (go find me a cleaner one, haha). In my eagerness to share new finds, this is more thrown-together than the usual fare, but at least the narrative is a little more clearly stated. As always, hope you enjoy (and please let me know if you do!).
