Ted Lindsay and the Democrats - Russian Women (1987)

I was pretty stoked to get my turntable out of storage in early September, and since then I've been buying up a good selection of cheap vinyl. I also got a new boondoggle for my laptop so my new rips will be in proper stereo.

I wanted to post this one first because I could not find anything out about this band over the web, and I love a good mystery. Ted Lindsay and the Democrats were from Nashville and recorded on the equally mysterious Ancient Mystic record label. It's a relatively short, but impressively dynamic album. Further information would be very welcome.

Paula was a friend of mine; she gave me a copy of this album once when I did an electronic repair for her. I especially like "Russian Women" and "Crushed".

I saw them perform in Nashville at the Exit/Inn in 1987. They opened for Marshall Crenshaw. I still have this vinyl album. TG

Thank you for this post, Ted is one of my better friends and has never mentioned this album/band... there's some 'splainin' to do

My mother is Paula Abbott and my father John Abbott was the Producer/Engineer. I have always loved their music but thought they were a little ahead of their time. I am glad to see they still get some play time other than at my house!
