Welcome to The Tuna Melt Music Sharity Blog!

It is here that I post old records that I've ripped
to Mp3 format (and grouped in .ZIP files) via File Sharing Sites,
album cover scans and, sometimes,
somewhat coherent ramblings related to said shares.

None of the shares here are "borrowed" from other blogs.
All of the items shared are rips of Out-of-Print
(or, at least, very difficult to get)
Vinyl Records from my own collection.

Come on in. Look around.
Scroll downward to find available links.
I hope you find something you like.

If you don't,
you can always come back later, as the variety
of what is made available should be pretty wide-ranging.

Billy Boyd: Twangy Guitars

There's no such person as Billy Boyd. Okay. There is, of course. But the guy that played a Hobbit in The Lord of the Rings movies didn't record this record in 1960.

This Billy Boyd was actually Jerry Cole.

Cole played with The Champs. He also worked with just about every important musician in America between 1959 and 1991. Find his story (along with a list of albums he released under different names) here: Jerry Cole @ The Rockabilly Hall of Fame.

This one is definitly a keeper. I played it at work today and it was solid. Some of my young workmates don't get it but what can you do.
Thank you, and if you've got more of the same ilk, bring it on.

There was a character on the US 1960 TV show [one of the firsgt really commercial animated series, but still funny] "Linus the Lionhearted", with the voics of funnymen and pals Sheldon Leonard & Carl Reiner, named Billy Bird, named in Linus;s/Leonard's famed Brooklynese as Billy Boyd [the show was a plug for General Foods/Post cereals.]

Thanks for the reminder, Steve!

I remember "Linus the Lionhearted" quite well (and ate, I'm sure, more than my fair share of Crispy Critters for a while there) but had forgotten all about Billy "Boyd" Bird.

Aahhh... The Good Ol' Days.
