Marvin Meiers – Johnny Neill and Columbine

I had a unique experience yesterday – I purchased a 78 rpm record – something I rarely do.  Can’t even recall when I last made such a purchase (10 years?)  Oh yes!  I bought a Carl Perkins 78 about three years ago in Fort Collins.

An this time – which I am certain is a first – I bought a record that was essentially broken into two very distinct (well – one piece was totally missing) pieces!  But I had to purchase it because it was a release on Karl Zomar’s old Columbine label which is suspected to be an ancestor perhaps to Denver’s long-defunct Band Box label.

Actually my familiarity with Columbine dates back quite a few years now when I came across a “Band Box Story” Posted on Lisa Wheeler’s “North of Pueblo” Blog Site. You can visit her article here…
