eddie gilmer, on clevelands own Wildfire Rcords

i found this early last summer. both sides are mid tempo and the b side is also a duet. of course theres just about no info on either the singer or the label. i just happened to grow up in the area where the label was, so i drove by. i thought it might be an old warehouse as its an industrial area. when i got there it was just a small house, which looked like its seen the wrath of the failing neighborhood.

im not quite sure if this is the same eddie gilmer, but there is one who recorded a few cuts for starday records:
the robertson brothers and eddie gilmer- why do i cry/ poison love
the RG's (joe robertson, harold robertson, eddie gilmer)  -take this picture/right or wrong

the string shifters, cambridge ohio

heres a little band that i somehow found 2 singles from in the same weekend from different places. i first thought maybe they were some what popular ,but have never seen anything by them since. these songs were recorded in Cambridge, Ohio for the AVC( audio visual creations) label.

i havent been able to find any information on the band, but the studio is still up and running. it has switched from producing music to doing something with video productions. i was really surprised that any sort of info showed up when i googled the label name!

heres the hit which i uploaded to youtube
