Well, after some issues getting logged in after moving the blog, I am wondering about starting up again. Any comments? Thoughts? I’ve got quite a bit to start posting, between albums, magazines, and the boxes of junk I’ve collected. What do you want to see? More history of the items? Info? Stuff for sale? Absolutely nothing looking like it’s for sale? Thoughts on history, TV, movies, music?
I’m also considering moving back to blogger since some idiot stole retrohound.wordpress.com and I can’t figure out how to get wordpress.com to use retrohound.com. Blogger will let me do that. Any thoughts?
Wayne King and his Orchestra, Wayne King in Hi Fi, Decca DL 8751, 1950s. A rather cool cover. Sorry, I usually take a picture of the back also but didn’t get it done with this one. This is one of about 500 albums I just bought for $40.
I used to build quite a few models back in the day. Not a ton, I certainly knew kids who did more and better than I, but it was something I enjoyed. Here’s a couple of certificates from the Revell Modelers Club. Don’t know exactly what years they are, but I would guess late 1970s. Possibly early 1980s, but more likely ’70s. I wish I still had some of those catalogs. I built mainly cars, but also WWII planes and a couple of ships.
I found this in some magazines that were getting thrown out. I opened one up and it fell on this 1957 Chevy ad that I’d not seen before so I cut it out. Unfortunately I didn’t have time to get more. I’d sell this for $5. This magazine was called Holiday.
The Blue Notes (or Bluenotes), Spacious Skies and Waving Grass, the Official Kansas Centennial Folk Song Album. Design/Art for Living, 1961.
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.
I will be moving to a different server this week, so please be patient if things aren’t right for a while. With any luck, I’ll have a site redesign also.
Live on new server now!
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.
Ray Martin, Pop Goes the Swingin’ Marchin’ Band, RCA-Victor LPM-1771, 1958. Songs are
Rock Around The Clock
Sail Along Silv’ry Moon
Cheer Leader Cha Cha
Lullaby Of Birdland
The Mexican Hat Dance March
Begin The Beguine
Who’s Sorry Now
Rock And Roll March
The Swingin’ Shepherd Blues March
I don’t know if this was a novelty then, taking pop songs and putting them to a marching band, but it’s what every high school marching band does now.
I’d sell this for $3 plus $4 shipping. I hate that I have to charge for shipping, but there’s no way around it.
