The 2015 Ponderosa Stomp Record Show will feature "tens of thousands of records from a variety of dealers... there is also a focus on the music of the Gulf Coast states, New Orleans in particular, and the artists represented at the Ponderosa Stomp concert and conference." Yeah, baby! We can't wait! What better place to search for missing code numbers?
It does our heart good to see that the Mystic Knights decided to use Flambeau 103 as the basis for one of this year's graphics, and leave the code (133-2310) intact... very cool! Although there have been many Stomp artists with Cosimo Coded releases, the record holder (if you will) may just be the mighty, mighty Tony Owens. As you might recall, it was only a year ago that we found the smokin' previously unknown Soulin' 148 (251-2578):https://youtu.be/d4_RdhDieUE
...who knows how many other great records are out there waiting to be discovered?
So, here's the deal... if you're digging through the stacks at the Record Show, and you find a 45 or LP that bears a Cosimo Code (either on the label or in the 'dead wax'), check to see if the matrix number (the second one) is listed among The Missing. If it is, come show it to Red Kelly or John Broven (both of whom will be in attendance*), or shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
. The first person to uncover a missing code number wins a free ticket to the Stomp. Simple as that...
See You There!
*JOHN BROVEN will be moderating THIS SHOULD GO ON FOREVER with ROD BERNARD at 12:45pm on October 1st - RED KELLY will be moderating WALK A MILE IN MY SHOES with WILLIE HIGHTOWER at 3:00pm.
*The 2015 COSIMO CODE CHALLENGE is not affiliated with THE PONDEROSA STOMP FOUNDATION, and remains the sole responsibility of THE COSIMO CODE and its parent agency SOUL DETECTIVE. Good Luck!
Should be a lot of fun! Hope we can fill in some gaps!!
