Yesterday's News - Countdown To Love (1985)

     got this rare obscure 1985 doo wop 7" yesterday, at a local record store of all places. heard a snippet of it on ebay years ago and it's always been in the back of my mind. for some reason i was thinking about it lately, so i went digging for it again on the net. to my amazement i found a link to it at a local record store for 5 bucks. even had the picture sleeve, which as you can see is killer. the track itself, Countdown To Love, is really great out-of-nowhere funky mid-80s doo wop. it's the only song by Yesterday's News that has instruments on it, that i know of. actually the b-side to the 7" is an instrumental version. which was a fantastic surprise, since i was assuming it would be some boring slow tune on the flipside. the band is incorrectly spelled as Yesterday News on the record label.
