Slim Jim



On a day when we got about 17'' of snow here in Minnesota, there's no better record than this one to post. The Soma label was based in Minneapolis from 1957 until 1967. I couldn't find what year this was pressed. The name of the label comes from the owner Amos Heilicher, his name spelled backward. How about I start a Kired label?

Soma 1043

If the label started in 1957 I know soma (MN) 45 - 1061 is 1957 as this is 1043 it should also be 1957 The Drunken Hobo

Thank you both for the info. I wasn't able to find a Soma discography online.
