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.


James Bond(ish) Records

Movies, Music, Television

The “Sleepwalk” Guitars of Dan and Dale, Theme from Thunderball, Diplomat DS 2616, 1965. I like how it makes clear THIS IS NOT A SOUNDTRACK.


The Jazz All-Stars, Thunderball, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. & Other Secret Agent Themes, Design Records, SDLP-206, 1966. The blonde looks like the guy from Man From U.N.C.L.E.

I think these are both unopened, part of the set I bought at the closed out electronics store. Of course if the mood strikes, I’ll open them and listen to them! That’s what records are for! Speaking of records, you should check out The House of Black Wax, he’s running an alternative list to the Rolling Stone Magazine Greatest 500 Albums that includes lots of great stuff!

Little Jimmy Dickens Sings Out Behind The Barn



Little Jimmy Dickens, Sings Out Behind the Barn, Columbia CSRP 8687, 1962. One of the classic stars of country music that has been mostly forgotten. Too bad. He’s most famous for “May the Bird of Paradise Fly Up Your Nose.” This is a new, unopened copy of the album.

Here’s a vid of “Out Behind the Barn” which includes many things you’d find happening out behind a barn.

I love my Organ!


Organ music used to be pretty popular.

Lawrence Welk presents Bob Ralston, I Left My Heart in San Francisco, Ranwood Records R8064, 1969.

Dick Leibert, Hits to Keep Forever, RCA Victor LAP-2910 (it says 1964 on the back, but this has orange label on the record so I think it’s a 1970s pressing). The bottom right corner is cut.

Jesse Crawford, 12 All Time Waltz Favorites, International Award Series (Pickwick), AK 278, 1959 (but possibly a later pressing also as it’s not a heavy record)

All three have the cellophane still on them. Spines are all great, the records look great, so I’m fairly confident with a VG+ rating other than the one with the corner cut, depending on how you would rate that. And, they are on eBay right now!
