<quoted text>Hi Pop Tart yep just like my Mom she loved Elvis and Michael Landon [Little Joe Cartwright].Elvis was no doubt a ladies man and a handsome brute of a man.His wife is still hot but I don't much care for his daughter Lisa.She looks like him in her eyes anyway.
Lisa does look a lot like Elvis, doesn't she? She's very pretty, like her mother. I liked Priscilla in those silly 'Airplane' movies....ha ha!

Oh yeah, Bonanza! Of course, Little Joe was the fave for all the girls! Unlike Hoss, who however did have a good, kind heart! That was a good showt!:)

Billy, your Dad must have SOME collection!!! Very cool! I remember you saying that he had a really awesome sound system as well!
It's his hobby. He loves doing it and goes all over the country collecting and meeting people. He has thousands of records from various genres. He knows a lot of the old guys from the San Francisco scene of the 60s. He has a great love for all of it. I appreciate his love and have been influenced a great deal with the same interests in music.

Yes, I would agree that you also appreciate music and know a lot about it - thanks to your Dad! That would be such a fun hobby going all over the country collecting music, especially rare music. He sounds like a very cool dude! He would be so interesting to sit down with for an afternoon of music and sharing info.

It sounds like Octo has a pretty vast collection as well. That's worth some money! My oldest sister loved the Beatles - she has every album they ever made. She also belonged to the fan club, so she has tons of memorabilia, too!

“GOOD LUCK.”

Great music feeds the soul. I have been listening to Chris Rea a lot lately. He has a deep rich voice.

Hey Bubba.
My dad has an Elvis Presley Sun Records 78 of Baby Let's play house, it's wrapped up in plastic, it's only been played a couple of times.
Read the cool Beatle's bootleg list, does sound very cool, the song "Can you take me back" was tagged on the end of "Cry Baby Cry" on the Beatles White Album in 68, but very possible could have been tried again during the Let it Be or Abbey Road sessions, I wish it would have been a full length song.
It lasts about 20 seconds, but I've heard a 2 minute version on Youtube.

You tube is amazing.I am always surprised at what you can find on you-tube.I saw some videos of Les Paul and Mary Ford that had to be made about 1949 I think.
