This is Officially to Announce:
... that the Cussin' & Carryin' On Blogspot has launched a Youtube channel of its own!
Let it, therefore, proudly and with the required loftiness be proclaimed that you will find it here ... and instead of a darn stupid link I better post a video all along:
To tell you the truth, for a long time I didn't see the minimal necessity to open a Youtube channel. (Years ago I had already experimented with one but didn't find it worthwhile and closed it down after a few days.) And I still think that listening to old records in the form of video-stills (because that's what they are in 95% of cases) is a strange thing to do and not very satisfying. BUT, unfortunately many sites nowadays use Youtube as a sort of general default site and you simply can't do without it. Best example for this is the extremely useful 45cat, which uses Youtube as a basic device. This is why I decided to go along with it, after all. So may it be made known heresoforewithandtowithandinanycase that this blog was from the beginning of time destined to have its own Youtube channel, and now this has come about as it was written in the Book of Fate. Lol.
I might add, just to let you know, that for the time being I will play only rare gospel music on the Youtube channel, nothing else. Most of what you'll find there was already played on this blog, but some tunes or 45s haven't been so far (and maybe never will). So in the best of perspectives, the Youtube channel will function as a supplement to this blog, mainly for use in connection with other sites. End of declaration, the Lord has spoken. Elvis has left the building. Drive carefully and good night.
I am interested in the music, not in the relative rarity of discs. I also listen with great pleasure to Aretha Franklin, because she has the voice of the century. Music is no Faith and therefore has no heretics.

No music downloads on this site. All mp3s (with very few exceptions where noted) are ripped from original vinyl discs. If something on this blog is objectionable to anyone or should, for valid reasons, be re- moved from the net please let me know; it will be removed. And to reiterate: This is a non-profit blog.
