Gee, let me see. Moby Grape? Quick Silver Messenger Service? How about 'On the Border' by 'The Eagles'?

Am I dating myself by saying I owned that one, also. 'Rock On' by Humble Pie featuring Peter Frampton before he became famous.

This isn't even randomly humourous - get thee out of the humour section, unless someone brings up the Wombles albums, or Ernie, the fastest milkman in the west...

There isn't a section called 'Things To Keep Yourselves Amused Between Ski Seasons' so this one will have to do. I'm sure once the snows return to the Western USA we'll stop abusing this forum.

Ernie, The Fastest Milkman In The West
(Words and Music: Benny Hill)

You could hear the hoof beats pound as they raced across the ground,
And the clatter of the wheels as they spun 'round and 'round.
And he galloped into market street, his badge upon his chest,

His name was Ernie,
And he drove the fastest milk cart in the west.

Now Ernie loved a widow, a lady known as Sue,
She lived all alone in Lily Lane at number twenty-two.
They said she was too good for him, she was ordery, proud and chic,
But Ernie got his cocoa there three times every week.

They called him Ernie, (Ernie),
And he drove the fastest milk cart in the west.

She said she'd like to bathe in milk, he said, "All right, sweetheart,"
And when he'd finished work one night he loaded up the cart.
He said, "D'you want it pasturised? 'Cause pasturised is best"
She says, "Ernie, I'll be happy if it comes up to me chest."

That tickled old Ernie, (Ernie),
And he drove the fastest milk cart in the west.

Now Ernie had a rival, an evil-looking man,
Called Two-Ton Ted from Teddington and he drove the baker's van.
He tempted her with his treacle tarts and his tasty oatmeal bread,
And when she seen the size of his hot meat pies it very near turned her head.

She nearly swooned at his macaroons and he said, "If you treat me right,
You'll have hot rolls every hot rolls every morning and crumpets every night."
He knew once she sampled his layer cake he'd have his wicked way,
And all Ernie had to offer was a pint of milk a day.

Poor Ernie, (Ernie),
And he drove the fastest milk cart in the west.

One lunch time Ted saw Ernie's horse and cart outside her door,
It drove him mad to find it was still there at half past four.
And as he lept down from his van hot blood through his veins did course,
And he went across to Ernie's cart and didn't half kick his horse.

Whose name was Trigger, (Trigger),
And he pulled the fastest milk cart in the west.

Now Ernie rushed out into the street, his gold top in his hand,
He said, "If you wanna marry Susie you'll fight for her like a man."
"Oh why don't we play cards for her?" he sneeringly replied,
"And just to make it interesting we'll have five quid on the side."

Now Ernie dragged him from his van and beneath the blazing sun,
They stood there face to face, and Ted went for his bun.
But Ernie was too quck for him, things didn't go the way Ted planned,
And a strawberry-flavoured yogurt sent it spinning from his hand.

Now Susie ran between them, and tried to keep them apart,
And Ernie, he pushed her aside and a rock cake caught him underneath his heart.
And he looked up in pained surprise and the concrete hardened crust,
Of a stale pork pie caught him in the eye and Ernie bit the dust.

Poor Ernie, (Ernie),
And he drove the fastest milk cart in the west.

Ernie was only fifty-two, he didn't wanna die,
And now he's gone to make deliveries in that milk round in the sky.
Where the customers are angels and ferocious dogs are banned,
And the milkman's life is full of fun in that fairy, dairy land.

But a woman's needs are many fold and Sue, she married Ted,
But strange things happened on their wedding night as they lay in their bed.
Was that the trees a-rustling? Or the hinges of the gate?
Or Ernie's ghostly gold tops
A-rattling in their crate?

They won't forget Ernie, (Ernie),
And he drove the fastest milk cart in the west.

The late Mr. Hill was one of our favourite subjects. We are most amused.

Fabulous Poodles!
post #16 of 27
Damn, that one has me stumped. I guess its another week of drinking PBR for me.
post #17 of 27

Which group put out that album cover? It was either The Fabulous Poodles or some LA punk band from the late 70s-early 80s (DKs?).

How about 'Masters of the Airwaves', an early 70s California heavy metal band?

Your the man. Did you want Deschutes Ale or Porter?
post #22 of 27
I owned that album, also. Unfortunately, I lost a it, along with a bunch of other albums, moving around after college. While at OSU we hired the band the lead guitar & drummer from 'Masters of the Airwaves' formed next for a street dance....they were great even in the rain.

Porter or Stout would be fine.

Your supplies will be enroute shortly. I am converting all of my vinyl to digital, I have about 900 LP's of classic rock. If you would like a certain album let me know. You never know when a skier might need a friend in Montana.
post #24 of 27
Damn, its been hard remembering all the albums I lost. A couple months ago I unboxed my remaining LPs when I moved into my new house. I have about 1/2 my LP left, around 150; nothing approaching yours. If you are copying 'Master of the Airwaves' or 'Desolation Boulevard' by Sweet I'll take a copy.

This part of Montana definitely has a lot ot offer. Bozeman is an hour from Big Sky, 20 minutes from Bridger Bowl and 1 1/2 from Discovery.

As for the brew, I'm heading to Ashland the week of the 4th. I am currently planning on drive back via Bend unless I change my mind and go through Wagontire (I've never been on that route).
post #25 of 27
Hope this is not a complete idiot question, but how do you convert vinyl into digital (aside from buying all new cds)? I need to do this too.
post #26 of 27
Get a CD recorder for your stereo. Numerous manufactures make them including Phillips & Sony. It's just like recording to tape.

Well what I do is use a stereo headphone jack output (from the stereo) to a RCA input plug to the back of the line in of the computer. Then I use Music Match Jukebox to record the data on to the hard drive. From there I go to my cd writer program and select the file that the music is in and create a cd. If you need any more info. just drop me a line. I have loaded a few albums on to a server that you can download at mp3's
