@Doug: "Nice" overshoots the mark! But we have a space, and we are the only ones in the building with access, and I do my best to make something happen in it -- hop vine, some bulb flowers, a couple of bushes. An eternal quest for actual grass coverage.

But given this arctic blast ... !

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:49pm mariano:

I learned only in the last few years that in the 50s or early 60s, my grandfather and a couple of friends briefly owned a night club in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, and on opening night they dressed in grass-skirt drag and lip-synced to a track from Mitchum's calypso album. There's a brief glimpse of it on some of the family Super-8 archive, but alas no sound.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:49pm SeanG:

  1:52pm Cool Hands Luke:

Serious (kinda) question - Does the 45 of Slippity exist? I've been searching for years and I've only ever seen pictures of it...???
  1:53pm David in London:

Mariano, I think you need to honour your forebears and record some sound for it yourself..!
Avatar 1:55pm Rex:

The Slippity 45 does indeed exist! I've got it in my mitts right now! But now back to the fresh, hot cookies!
  1:56pm Jett:

Can that Count Demon track be found on a re-issue cd compilation anywhere?

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:59pm Greg from ZONE 5:

Oh, this is a joint…
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:59pm mariano:

David: That's been a long-term plan of mine for a while. There's 10 hours of footage, covering 1958-1980, with some great footage of Honduras and New Orleans (plus a bit of NYC, DC, and some other parts of the US). It's just screaming for a period-appropriate soundtrack. I personally love the 70s footage most of all, when everyone was dressed like extras in Boogie Nights ;)
Avatar 2:02pm Rex:

Pedro- No reverb as of now...waiting for a major grant from the NEA...
  2:03pm P-90:

Big thumbs up for the Hi Fidelities!
  2:04pm David in London:

Mariano, wow, that’s quite a treasure trove. It’s the kind of project that might take some effort, but once completed you’d never ever be sorry that you’d invested in it. Agreed on the 70s clobber, it was just a glorious time for people looking cool and utterly ridiculous simultaneously.
