Just another strange twist on the season.
In the mid-1970s, Jack Dreznes, owner of Beverly Records on South Western, bought all the "Go-Go White Sox" 45s he could as a novelty item. "It was a steady seller, but not out of this world," he said. Once the Sox started playing it at games this year, the records sold out. Dreznes bought the song rights, pays Jagiello royalties and is burning CDs -- 100 at a time. Sox fans can get a copy for 10 bucks a disc.

"I've been a Sox fan all my life; I might have even heard it in 1959," Dreznes said. "There's a lot of interest now. Demand is sky-high."

CDs can be purchased online at www.beverlyrecords.com (http://www.beverlyrecords.com).

I love that store, It really used to look like a dungeon in there years ago.

That is a great article ! I'll have to show this to my dad. He has this on an old 45, and I remember him playing it for me when I was a kid back in the late 70's and early 80's.

That store is a vital part of my old 'hood. I remember my misspent youth buying 45's there and picking up those old WLS top 50 chart slips every week. It always looked like a dungeon. :)

Thanks for the info! I still have a copy of the 45 I bought from them about 10 years ago or so (prior to that the only way I knew about this record was an advertisement for it in the 1966 White Sox program). Just placed my order for the CD :D:

Jeff Szynal should come clean and admit that WSI has as much to do with the resurgence of the song as anthing; after all it has been the Official Song of WSI for years!!

I had no idea that place was even there, my mom used to take me there after every time I went to the dentist up the street, she would buy me a cassette.
