  1. I have a collection of 45rpm singles, which I am always adding to with original and re-releases. My latest purchases are: Neil Diamond - Cherry, Cherry b/w Solitary Man - German label Bellaphon re-issue. The tracks on both sides are in "true" stereo. Los Bravos - Going Nowhere - original UK release on Decca (mono) Los Bravos - Bring A Little Lovin' - original UK release on Decca (mono). Interestingly this track was written by Harry Vanda & George Young (Easybeats) Roy Head & The Traits - Treat Her Right - original Australian release on Columbia (mono) The Castaways - Liar, Liar (one of the tracks from the movie "Good Morning Vietnam") - U.S Era label re-issue (mono) Bend It! b/w Hold Tight - UK re-issue on Old Gold label (mono)
  2. Hi Everyone For anybody who knows and loves the classic 60's instrumental hit "Apache" recorded by the Shadows (and a few others), you may be interested in this vocal version by Sonny James. I only recently found it on YouTube. The lyrics were written by Johnny Flamingo. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1edBNa3I00s
  3. I watched season 5 on 13th Street catch up via Fetch. It is interesting to see how many points out of 10 the reviewers on IMDb https://www.imdb.com/title/tt2303687/reviews?ref_=tt_urv have given the series.
  4. I have been watching Series 5 of 'Line Of Duty" a British TV crime series about the investigation of police corruption. The story line, acting and production are all excellent. For anyone who enjoys British TV drama this series is a must. Personally, I would rate this series 10 out of 10.
  5. I watch SBS very often, either free to air or on Catch Up via Fetch. With Catch Up there is usually one ad at the beginning of a program. Depending on the running time of each program there will be x number of ads but only one each time (about 30 seconds duration and usually for an SBS series/program). I cannot remember the last time I watched the free to air "commercial" channels (7, 9 and 10). Although necessary for each channels funding to enable airing programs, the ads are so annoying, particularly when there is a number of ads shown together every 10 minutes or so. Even subscription channels do the same. The amount of ads spoil the enjoyment of the program or series.
  6. I am absolutely amazed that Carol played guitar (mainly bass) on approximately 10,000 recordings! She played the iconic bass intro (and throughout) on Sonny & Cher's "The Beat Goes On", the bass on The Beach Boy's "Good Vibrations" plus many, many more famous hit songs. It is Carol's bass playing on the theme for many 60's TV shows including "Mission Impossible', "Hawaii Five O" The Addams Family" and M.A.S.H. Such a prolific and talented musician as Carol should be inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.
  7. Hi Chris Yes. Thanks, I couldn't think of her name. All the backing vocalists and musicians on all the music, old and new are integral to any recording either in the studio and at live performances. I always feel that they are often not given the credit they deserve. Ultimately, they are as important as the artists themselves.
  8. Hi Everyone For anyone who enjoys 60's and early 70's music, I have finished watching a DVD music documentary - "The Wrecking Crew". I found it very interesting. It is about the recording studio backing instrumentalists, for the many popular bands and artists from the 60's, who had #1 hit songs. They were known as The Wrecking Crew. They recorded with artists such as Sonny & Cher (the iconic bass rift at the start of "The Beat Goes On" was played by a female member), The Beach Boys, The Monkees, Phil Spector, Frank Sinatra, Elvis and many more. Glen Campbell was a member for a time.
  9. Thanks guys for all your info. I need to catch up with GOT. I have only seen the first 4 seasons I have noticed that SBS On-Demand is showing some of the World Movies. I probably won't bother about trying to tune my TV for World Movies. I will just watch them On-Demand. There are hundreds of movies to watch.......as well as all the series. I can't remember the last time I watched the commercial channels (7, 9 & 10).
  10. How could I forget "The Rifleman" with Chuck Connors??
  11. SBS has SO many great series. I have just finished binge watching "Bullets" which I enjoyed.
  12. That's a great selection of posters keyse1. You have reminded me of all the TV westerns I used to watch back in the 60's. Cheyenne, Sugarfoot, Bronco, Bat Masterson, Rawhide, Branded, The Rebel (which is playing on Netflix at the moment), Have Gun Will Travel, The Lone Ranger (TV series), Maverick, Gunsmoke, Bonanza, Wyatt Earp and another series (I have forgotten the title) with a young Steve McQueen in which his character wears a cut-down rifle in a holster on his hip. I used to enjoy Whiplash! with Peter Graves, set and filmed in 1800's Australia. Peter Graves and James Arness (Gunsmoke) are brothers apparently. In the 70's used to watch Cash & Co. another Australian series set in the 1800's Cade's County with Glen Ford was another good series although a more modern setting.
  13. Yes, Jeddie, I saw Shane with Alan Ladd many years ago. It is a good movie. I will have to watch it again sometime soon. There are SO many good westerns......old and new.
  14. Oh yes!.....I forgot about "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance" with John 'The Duke' Wayne, James Stewart and Lee Marvin. It's a pity that Gene Pitney's classic song wasn't on the soundtrack.
  15. Hi Everyone What is your favourite western movie? (for those who like westerns of course) My favourite is "The Magnificent Seven" but I also like the three iconic Sergio Leone's spaghetti westerns starring Clint Eastwood......no titles needed here.......lol In my opinion the themes to all these movies are timeless......Elmer Bernstein and Ennio Morricone respectively.
