Wanna Go South of the Border?


My dad had quite a few Herb Alpert albums, which I’ve posted before, but we were missing a few. In our adventures up north last month, the roomie and I found some of the missing albums and scooped them right up! Herb Alpert’s Tijuana Brass ranks up there as one my roommate’s favorite groups and I love having them on in the background when we have company over.

Norman Three Times


My dad had Sue’s song “Norman” as a B side to her other hit and two different presses as it on an A side. Since they were different pressings I did decide to list them both.

Sue Thompson (born Eva Sue McKee July 19, 1925, Nevada, Missouri) is an American pop and country music singer. She is best known for the million selling hits “Sad Movies (Make Me Cry)” and “Norman”, both pop hits in the 1960s.

Let’s Take a Trip to Road Island


On a recent crate digging excursion to New Hampshire, I stumbled upon this album. I HAD to have it. I’ve always been drawn to Ralph Steadman’s art and for only $2.00, how could I say no? I wasn’t familiar with the band before purchasing, but we put it on when we got home and it seems to fill that gap between psychedelic rock of the 1970s and that heavy hair metal of the 1980s.

Ambrosia is an American rock band formed in southern California in 1970. Ambrosia had five Top Forty hit singles between 1975 and 1980, and after a hiatus during the latter 1980s most of the original band members have been active with the group for the past 25 years to the present day.

Don’t Call Us, We’ll Call You Green Eyed Lady


Sugarloaf was an American rock band in the 1970s, featuring lead vocalist and keyboardist Jerry Corbetta. They originated in Denver, Colorado.

They are best known for two songs, both of which hit the top 10 charts in the United States: “Green-Eyed Lady” in the autumn of 1970 (their biggest hit, reaching No. 3 on the Billboard chart) and “Don’t Call Us, We’ll Call You” in 1975 (US No. 9).

The song “Don’t Call Us, We’ll Call You” is notable because it contained a practical joke at the expense of CBS Records, which had just turned them down for a recording contract. The song includes the sound of a touch-tone telephone number being dialed near the beginning and ending of the song. Those numbers were an unlisted phone number at CBS Records and a public number at the White House respectively. In addition, the recording includes snippets of the guitar riff of The Beatles’ “I Feel Fine,” Stevie Wonder’s “Superstition,” and a line of dialogue from Wolfman Jack stating the call sign of a radio station; numerous tracks of this line were cut to match local markets.
