Guy Marks - Loving You Has Made Me Bananas - 1968

We were all bemused in the spring of 1968 when this silly tune was being played on the air every hour, all day long. Guy Marks sings the hit song and other old novelty tunes. Peter De Angelis was the main arranger and waves the stick. Link in comments.

The Excalibur Soundtrack - 1981

This was a special limited-edition soundtrack now out-of-print. I enjoyed the movie on the big screen and wanted to hear the soundtrack again and again. Crank up the volume. Link in comments.

The Popeye Soundtrack - 1980

It's back. Robin Williams was wonderful as Popeye and Shelly Duvall was born to play Olive Oyl. The movie was bizarre - just like the cartoon. Link in comments.
