Forgive my manners - very infrequent flyer here.

Thanks a million - you guys are the tops. I have had bad experiences with freeware so I might try that last but with luck I will be able to return all the favours I have received on this site very soon.

Technical Q

I am hoping forum members might offer some thoughts: I would love to return the favours I have received here but I am a bit of a dinosaur and I can't so much as form an intelligent question when I am looking at USB turntables and cassette decks. Would someone comment please on what is available, wha...

It's true what they say - a restaurant is only as good as the last meal you had there. It looks like we are losing the Toby's at Yonge and Bloor to a condo development. There was one in the underground - First Canadian Place or somewhere connected. I don't know if that one is still there or not but ...

Re: Michaele Jordana and the Poles

"File not found" - could you possibly re-post this one? Thanks a lot. I've been looking forever for this one. I was sure it would show up on a compilation or in a second hand shop but no luck. Cancel that - I found it here: <http://www.lastdaysofmanonearth.com/blog/?p=167> Enjoy!

I think that fourth album was Elvis Presley on Sun Records. Can anyone confirm this?

I remember the Record Peddlar. A tiny bit out of the way and inconvenient hours but quite a selection and I was often pleasantly surprised at how inexpensive their imports could be.

Re: Thanx anonymous for bb gabor

StarsInBrampton: Jealous Girl came out 3 years ago on the BB Gabor CD that contained his 2 albums. It's on Pacemaker Entertainment, catalog PACE 027. The booklet is nicely done, though I'll never part with my vinyl (enclosed as it is in 12 by 12 inch pieces of art). I also came across a rare one on...

David Pritchard

I'm new to the Forum - that is sad news indeed. I had no idea.

To my surprise I spotted Nocturnal Earthworm Stew on CD, catalog PACE 044LN - never thought I'd see that one on disc. Plenty of photos of Mr. Prtichard in the finest threads the mid-1970s had to offer.

The earlier post is without the \"yapping\". I think Uranus might have been one of the talent search finds but I could very easily be wrong about that.

Planet Uranus

The original poster was close to the mark. If memory serves, a band called Uranus or maybe it was Planet Uranus did a more or less 'serious' cover of the theme song which received a fair bit of play in the day. That would be fun to hear again, too.
