A Few More Records

I always thought the theme song from the Cheyenne TV series had a melancholy wistfulness about it.

Listen to "Ta-Ra-Ra-Boom-Der-E" and wonder why they spelled it like that. Here's "Pony Boy" too. It's OK to march around the living room while you listen.

"El Kabong" and "Ooch Ooch Ouch" wraps up the record posts for now.

Record Guild of America - Picture Disks

Beautiful kiddie records, from the 1950s, I'm guessing. The last one has sound files for the curious.

Listen to ""Workin' on the Railroad".

Listen to "Erie Canal". A good one!

Records - French EPs

Found at the flea market about 15 years ago, a selection of very cool French EPs from the 1960s.

When I was 13 years old, this is exactly what I wanted to look like! Denim jacket, pants and cap, worn leather boots. Oh well, I did get a harmonica...

Not a French EP, but it was with the same batch of records, all for ten cents a piece!

Golden Records

My very first blog post was of some LPs from the stacks. Now five years later, here's some kid's records.

A Trip to the Attic - 006

Mystery box from a flea market. Popular opinion is that it's a box of old sewing-machine parts.

Some old plastic planes.

A Trip to the Attic - 005

Spring Cleaning! I've gotten rid of about 1/2 ton of broken toys, moth-eaten cloths and busted electronics over the past few weeks (and made a few $$$ at the flea market too). Here are few things I've found that I'm holding on to...

An old drafting kit, I guess.

Three keys from an odd old wooden box. More on this one tomorrow.

Tumblin Tim and Flyin Flo - 5

The thrilling climax.
