You Can’t Feed A Baby LPs Part 2

Okay, boners, I don’t have much time so I’m gonna’ make this quick…

Here’s a batch of soundtracks I’ve picked up over the past month:

I know, I know, you’re pretty sure I have absolutely no filter when it comes to my record purchases…and I have to admit, that might be true…especially when it comes to soundtracks…

So, what do we have here? VALLEY OF THE DOLLS, HISTORY OF THE WORLD PART I, 1941, INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS (1978), ERASERHEAD, BRIGHT LIGHTS BIG CITY, 9 TO 5, MEATBALLS, BAD GUYS, and ANY WHICH WAY YOU CAN!

I’m not going to put up a video for each of them , but I will say the BRIGHT LIGHTS BIG CITY soundtrack has some killer 80s jams on it…like this one:

What? You thought I was give a fuck about my cred and play Love Attack by Konk?

Porky, Roger, and Max join the record club.

Another payday, another round of Lp buying. Man, I just can’t stop buying soundtracks these days…


“The Angel Beach boys are back, and crazier than ever. With the basketball championship around the corner, the boys are ready and willing, until one day Brian learns their gym coach owes money to their old enemy Porky Wallace. Fearing the old strip club is back in business, the team hurries out where Meat encounters a beautiful (ugly faced) girl who turns out to be Porky’s daughter. Trying to help their couch the guys make a deal with Porky over the basketball championship. But when Porky’s learns of his daughter’s crush on Meat, he flips out and kidnaps Meat for an all true American Wedding. It’s up to his friends to save him and ruin Porky for good.” Written by Wallace Entertainment

Oh, James….and Max?!

I know Sean Connery is generally considered to be the coolest Bond, but I’m a Roger Moore man all the way. In addition to being Bond, James Bond, he was also Seymour Goldfarb Jr. aka Roger Moore:

And before Mel was known for shouting about freedom and The Jews while wearing a dress, he had a bad ass salt and pepper mullet and was the one man to leave The Thunderdome!

In related “news”, I was checking my Tag Surfer function and came across this blog, which led me to this awesome flickr page!

Sleeveface also has a little corner in WordPress. Cool, huh?

Soundtrack to my life…

This morning I decided it was finally time to make a soundtrack section in my vinyl collection. I’ve been toying with the idea for a couple of weeks now and I took on the challenge this morning. I know all record collectors have very specific ways of filing their LPs (even if that means just tossing them around in no particular order…shudder), but I’m a hard and fast “alphabetical order” kind of Virgo….so making a section, any kind of section goes against my nature. It’s all, alpha by artist and alpha by title if it’s a soundtrack or compilation, all the time.

Last year I tried to pull out all my soundtracks and snap a picture of them for an old blog…it looked like this:

It was a total pain in the ass and I neglected to pull out at least 10 additional titles….the alpha order system was not helping me find all my soundtracks and it was getting harder and harder to avoid doubling up on certain titles (I am an addict)….and I just kept buying more (again, I am an addict). So here’s what I got myself into this morning:


That’s about 125 lps…all soundtracks for movies or teevee.

Well, that’s not totally true. I ran into a little problem with certain LPs. Look close at this picture:


Going clockwise:
THE HORN MEETS THE HORNET by Al Hirt….It has the Green Hornet Theme plus other themes like, Get Smart, King Kong (ABC-TV Series), Tarzan, Batman, and a few others.

SUPERMAN AND OTHER GALACTIC HEROES by Meco…Side one is Superman stuff but side two has The Boy Wonder, The Caped Crusader, Lord Of The Jungle, and The Amazing Amazon.

SUN RA VS. DAN AND DALE…This is all crazy Batman themed songs.

HEFTI IN GOTHAM CITY by Neal Hefti….again, all Bat-tastic songs.

So what’s the problem? How do I file these by title or even by a specific soundtrack when the first two have multiple themes? I settled on putting the last two in the B’s for Batman and filed Al in the G’s for the Green Hornet and Meco in the S’s for Superman. This may not seem like a big deal to you, but they’re not your records…and you don’t have to worry about finding them.

Okay, enough complaining. While pulling out all these gems I found some cool ones to share with you.


Not one, but two DAWN OF THE DEAD soundtracks! The first comes with a cool ZOMBI poster and has the amazing score by Goblin and the second has unreleased music from the film…like:

THE GONK!

Peep these:

The 12″ for DR. DETROIT by Devo! God, I loved this movie as a kid!

Even though THE EXORCIST II stank, the Ennio Morricone score fucking rules! Listen:

Man, that track gives me goosebumps every time!

Anyway, I’m glad i have a soundtrack section and I’ll probably do some more sharing with you kids in the future…but until then, I gotta’ find me a copy of DR. DETROIT on dvd, stat!
