Colgems Want List

Okay, it is getting down to the wire.

I am running out of Colgems material to upload.

I still have a few things that haven't been made available yet, and I will do that as the year runs out. However, the time is coming when I won't have anything left to post.

I need some singles from the label, but right now, I want to concentrate on the albums, most notably the soundtracks. Here is a selection of LPs I do not have:

Hammerhead (COS-110)
Lawrence of Arabia (COSO 5004--only the Colgems release, not the release on Colpix or any other label)
Night of the Generals (CCOSO 5002)
Otley (COSO 112)
Southern Star (COSO 5009)

Does anyone have these? If you have them on MP3 format, please let me know, off list if you can. I am sure we can work something out.

New Colgems LP Posted

I have uploaded the soundtrack to the classic 1960s action flick "The Professionals" to the Alternative Top 40 site at

Due to space restrictions, I had to reduce the bitrate of some of the tracks, but they are all there.


(And yes, the Yankees stink too, I'm afraid. Let's go Indians!)

I'm Thinking About A New Post

Yes, you can sing this to the strains of "I"m Dreaming of a White Christmas ..."

I have two choices of what to upload this month. Both are soundtracks of two fairly obscure movies; one, in fact, is extremely obscure, but for some reason, its soundtrack was released on the Colgems label.

I won't let the cat out of the bag just yet.

And by the way, congrats to the New York Mets for stinking up the place. I root for the Yankees, but I did expect to see good baseball yesterday. What I got was worse than a T-ball game with five year olds.

Anyway, the link to Colgems ... when the Monkees became hot again in the mid-1980s, Colgems alum Peter Tork could often be found wearing a Mets jacket while on tour, so I would assume he was/is a Mets fan, and was rooting them on from his home in Connecticut.

"For Pete's Sake," watch the Yankees!
