Richard Simmons – “Reach”

Richard Simmons – “Reach”The Sleeve: Gatefold: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  With all this hoopla going on with Richard Simmons’ being apparently held ‘hostage’ by his housekeeper, but I’m not here to discuss that. I’m here to discuss the record of Richard Simmons.  So, this LP is supposed to come with a Exercise Book, I guess to... Read More »

Joe Dolce – “Shaddap You Face / Ain’t in No Hurry”

Joe Dolce – “Shaddap You Face / Ain’t in No Hurry”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  Time to take a nostalgia trip back to my childhood, I remember when I was really young this song would come on the radio and my mother and I would always sing along together.

Ralph Hapschatt. Anyways, after success with Rocky Horror, Jeremy released three singles, and this is one of them.... Read More »

Haysi Fantayzee – “Battle Hymns for Singing Children”

Haysi Fantayzee – “Battle Hymns for Singing Children”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  So, to start, let me say I’ve never seen or heard this band before. I got it simply for the cover. The A-Side opens with a track titled “Shiny Shiny” and well the female spoken intro “good times come to me now” is a little odd for... Read More »

Rolf Harris – “The Best of Rolf Harris”

Rolf Harris – “The Best of Rolf Harris”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: “I first became a fan of Rolf Harris long before I knew he was a singer. At the time Rolf was appearing regularly on a children’s T.V. programme. Because of my small child I was forced to watch. I never regretted it. Splashing paint and chat about the studio in...
