Thief Soundtrack, Tangerine Dream, Electra 5E-521, 1981. Synth heavy early ’80s production. The movie stars James Caan. Here’s my short review: Pretty cool and slick Michael Mann picture about a high-end thief who wants to have a normal suburban life, but gets involved with the mob. They don’t want him to quit and hurt people to convince him to stay. James Caan as the thief is very good at playing him as a total jerk. The guy is pretty unlikable, really. However, you have sympathy for him as he’s trying to overcome his past. BTW, is “slick Michael Mann” redundant?
I found this record at a garage sale where they’d left it out overnight and we had a heavy dew. This and one other album (CCR Chronicles) covers were pretty wet, but the vinyl was in tip-top shape and they were only a quarter so I bought them.
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.
Jimmy & Vella, Heartbeat
, Imperial LP-12419, 1968. Great Northern Soul. Not sure why I didn’t get a photo of the back side, I usually do. It’s a gatefold album and I usually get that too, but it’s still sealed. Got it on eBay now
Elvis Presley, self titled EP, RCA-Victor EPA-830. 1956. Got this on eBay now.
Billy Vaughn Orchestra, “Skater’s Waltz” b/w “Beg Your Pardon” Dot 16064, 1959. Not often you find a picture sleeve of someone like Billy Vaughn. The 45s usually just have the generic company sleeves. I’ve got this and 7 other Vaughn 45s on eBay.
Got this with some albums at an estate sale. I don’t know how it used to work, but now it just seems to leave behind a bit of a linty mess.
The Partridge Family, Up to Date
, Bell 6059. 1971. Have this on eBay right now. Check it out along with several other things I’ve got there now. LindseyCollectables at eBay

Hello all. If you happen to be a follower of this blog, then you know I haven’t posted in a while, but will get back to it soon. I feel the magic returning. Thank you.
In the meantime, check out my Letterboxd and my Tumblr. Letterboxd is for movie stuff and Tumblr is just pictures. Tumblr is cool in that I’ve already got a bunch of followers, but I don’t like that there are no comments or ways to interact with the people. Not that I get many comments here, but I like the option.
Anyway, thank you and good night.
