I would never claim that you are lying arne... unless I catch you in one of those parenthetical (almost)s! But you're definitely talking out your ass on the Clapton thing. Slowhand would never drive a Chevy Silverado. He seems much more the Land Rover type. Say it loud! He's Brit and he's proud! On a sidenote, i'll bet that's a guitar Slowhand doesn't have in his collection!
Hey, arne, remember that time old man MacGregor told you to quit writing songs for The Strawberry Alarm Clock and get back to work boxing up those Whole Burbank Catalog loss leaders? They're all available right here! For those not in the know (but I'll bet you remember them!), Warner's loss leaders were very inexpensive samplers. Most were double albums that sold for about $2, featuring a look at whatever was hot off the press at WEA Records... and I'll be damned if they didn't accidentally create some pretty cool albums in the process! That Whole Burbank Catalog album features Jerry Garcia, T. Rex and Seals and Crofts to name but a few. And you know who put this compilation together? Barry Hansen... otherwise known as Dr. Demento! What the fuck, arne? You're so busy keeping an eye on Bea Arthur behind the counter at the 7-11 that you forgot to mention that your three-legged-race partner at the WEA company picnic was Dr. Demento? You sadden me.
BTW, if you would actually like to download some of these albums, just scroll down to the comments section on each individual album page. The first comment should say "Search HERE". Click on HERE and get you a slice of rock & roll heaven!

You are more than welcome, hogger! All I ask is that you spread the word! Play and share with friends and neighbors, because it is up to us to ensure that future generations do not forget the name of The Peanut Butter... was it Conspiracy? Yes, it was! So... blahblahblah future generations... The Peanut Butter Conspiracy!

(Almost) spot on Bill. And Loss Leaders? Not only did I suggest those sampler releases back in 67-68, I saved that damned company from extinction when somebody fenced my tune, "Getty's Groan". That's what would piss me off if it weren't for learning how to meditate.
Without me and Newhart, that place would be pretty much where it is today. I once e-mailed Stan Cornyn. I asked him "What's going on?"
But Stan took credit for Loss Leaders. He took credit for CD+Graphics. He even took credit for Jackson Browne. So he never got back to me. Amazing.

There's a Wikipedia. He's passed on last year.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stan_Cornyn

So I guess Stan is not "Hanna" after all. Rest in Peace.

Ain't Nuggets Rhino? Long ago I was suggesting an aftermarket outlet for albums that the majors were no longer supporting.
Funny how Rhino's first single in '73 was by Wild Man Fischer, formerly of Warner/Reprise.
And how they were then bought by Time Warner. My cable company.
These days, Rhino's offices are a mere 1000 ft. away from...

Sorry 'bout the Limey. This is particularly good listening on a Sunday evening.

Well, everyone, I’ve got bad news… dad is super pissed! He says if he can’t park the Dodge Dart in the garage then I get to join it outside and sleep in the backseat. But, hey, we got a couple hours before Tommy’s cousin comes by in his truck to get the drumkit, so we have time for just a few more numbers. As promised, I’m finishing up with a salute to our neighbors south of the border. By “border” I mean “equator” and by “neighbors” I mean that gang of filthy horse-fuckers England dumped off down Sydney way. It’s Australian Nuggets! Yeah, I can’t believe it either! I, too, had always been under the impression that Aussies didn’t have electricity until the 2000 Olympics! As to who you can expect to hear on this Down-Under Wonder? Fuck if I know! Ask Steve! One Easybeats song, and I hadn’t even heard of it. I can tell you this, though: Australia ain’t screwing around! This is a lot closer to those Punk sets than those Pop sets. Even The Bee Gees sound pissed! Well, I would be too if I spent my whole day sharpening sticks and poking them at dingoes trying to eat baby SteveOz.

I want to thank you guys for joining me on this obsessive little journey of mine. I am just a prophet trying to spread The Word. Hey, I like the major leaguers, too, but I sure wish half of the 20 million people who bought copies of The Beatles “1” best-of had copies of all these records, too.
EDIT: Hey! This one has been downloaded 11.5 times already! Only 9,999,988.5 to go!

Thank goodness. Not a single tune of mine in those last two. That allows me to enjoy listening again like I used to.

Say. I haven't seen any Rascals.





...whoops.

Gypsum Crow Rocky! If you knock off the first name and the C from the Surname, the two syllables that remain sound like my given name in shorthand. First and Middle.
That could explain "the extra nice welcome" I received at The Home Office, about 1,000 ft. from Rhino.

When I was there for a year as a temp with promises of permanent employment (with my tunes on the records), I was bumped a couple of times. Once, by a guy who is now the CEO of Time Warner, my cable company. And the other kid, Mark, was indifferent and really couldn't care at all. He was placed by Nepotism. I suspect it was some kind of a joke. The mezzanine where The Vault of current releases were kept was plastered with the latest Hustler Honey posters in full sight of everyone. Both sexes. Bill the Vault Keeper insisted on it. And mind you, now and then we had artists drop by to check on their promotional efforts. I remember Larry Mahan (King of the Rodeo and then-WB Country Artist) stopped by. There were no issues with Larry, but the Honeys were still plastered to the cage.

LOL! There have been other sites where the "ruby" name got me some... personal messages from people who were rightly confused. But I wouldn't expect such naughty behavior from a happily-married gentlemen! Hopefully, LeeVanCleef is more representative. Then again, I had a friend who dated a girl named Lee Marvin.

Man, if there's a thread that makes me miss arne, it's this one. He managed to fill in some great musical blanks. He truly was our Ayatollah of RocknRolla. I even downloaded that Thunderclap Newman album he posted.

"We have got to get it together.
We have got to get it together now!"

Sigh. Maybe someday we'll get around to doing that.

Lee Remick, huh?

Just your basic next-door 'classy white chick'...I think my favorite piece of her work is Telefon, with Charles Bronson and Donald Pleasence, 1977


Man! That thing got big---I know Arne left a bandwidth-saving embedding trick somewhere, but I'm too lazy to hunt it down

I win I do not have or have ever owned a mobile phone, still all the real people in this town know me, talk to me, wave to me on the street as I ride on by, what am I missing out on, an extra dollar a day in my pocket?

Telefon! Miles to go before I sleep. I loved that one as a kid. I tried watching it a couple years ago and it hasn't aged well. All the brain-washed people move around like zombies!

Steve, the thin material of that extra dollar may be just what keeps one of those dingoes from sinking its teeth into your tender flesh.

LOL! So that's where all those creepy coins that won't fit in the coin-op washing machine come from! Why won't Australia let me wash my clothes in peace? I don't want to be dirty and filthy like an Australian!
I never get calls on my Ipod. I'm pretty happy with that.
