I’m on the new server and still messing with stuff trying to get it right. Thanks for your patience. Also, be sure the check out my eBay stuff, I’m going to try and unload a ton of stuff, so if you see something on the site here you like, let me know. We can make an arraingment. I’d rather sell from here, as if I sell on eBay, I loose 12-15% of the total to eBay and Paypal. Blech.

Folk Tales of the Tribes of Africa – Eatha Kitt

Eartha Kitt, Folk Tales of the Tribes of Africa, Caedmon TC 1267, 1968.

Once while playing Scattergories, I used Eartha Kitt and no one else at the table knew who she was (other than my wife, of course). And I wasn’t even the oldest one at the table by a long shot. What a shame.

This record was a library record, and it was checked it once. It has some surface noise, but not bad at all. I’ve got it on eBay for $17.99. http://www.ebay.com/itm/181589313730?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649

The Ampeg Sound 1966 Ad

Music
Ampeg Advertisement

Here’s an Ampeg amplifiers advertisement from the Country Music Who’s Who – 1966. Dig that wild font! Looks more like something from San Francisco of the time than Nashville.

( function() {
if (window.CHITIKA === undefined) { window.CHITIKA = { ‘units’ : [] }; };
var unit = {“calltype”:”async[2]”,”publisher”:”robertmlindsey”,”width”:550,”height”:250,”sid”:”Chitika Default”};
var placement_id = window.CHITIKA.units.length;
window.CHITIKA.units.push(unit);
document.write(‘

‘);
}());

Hank Williams Jr. without a beard – 1966

Music, W

Hank Williams Jr.

Hank Williams, Jr. in 1966, from The Country Music Who’s Who, 1966 edition. Most of the book seems to be advertising for various artists, booking agencies, talent agents, and musical equipment. Most of the pages look similar to this pattern. I’ve scanned some interesting pictures from this book. Watch for more in the coming weeks.
