That's my wife Shan posting that Keerazy Records link. I didn't think there was more than ONE copy of that Alcoa LP. Does your copy have anything on the back? Mine just has handwritten notes about what will eventually go there. Hey, I redrew the lettering from Jackie Gleason's Lonesome Raod for my K...

I have a slew of records that came out in the wake of Mrs Miller. An old man doing Stones and Beatles covers, a Tijuana Brass knock-off with old ladies on the cover instead of the hot chick. She was in the film The Cool Ones where most of the songs are by Lee Hazlewood. I have a 1950s banjo lp, wher...

Oops, I meant Charles Deaton, of course, which I shouldn't have got wrong as I just spent a lot of effort drawing a house by him:

Haha, there was no Bosco in the fridge, but there was a turquoise interior in the pink vintage Frigidaire! The location of that fridge was in a part of the house not shown in those photos. There was another vintage half-width Frigidaire behind a side wall near to the left of that bar shown in the la...

And Sambo's is on that page as well! There's only the one left, right? When they shut down the Sambo's in Newbury Park, CA (my hometown), the employee's started a food fight with customers getting egged and slipping on all the food! Probably about 1980.

Those are great Colorado pictures from your roadtrip. I suggest to any visitors to Denver to go to Denver's oldest restaurant (Liquor Licence #1) the Buckhorn Exchange. While the food is excellent (Buffalo, Elk Rattlesnake, etc), it is very exspensive. But you can always hit the bar upstairs, then y...

That's sad. I use to live in the Valley at one point (Chatsworth "armpit of the Valley"). Is the Batman-A-Go-Go still around? It was still there at the end of the '80s. How about Cupids Hot Dogs?

Casa Bonita, haha, yeah, now even more famous due to that hysterical South Park episode. I think it holds the world(!) record for largest single structure restaurant, or something like that, 52,000 square feet. That's maybe 5 minutes from where I live. Each meal they serve is all you can eat, you ca...
