Hollywood slingin’

“Philco Thinks of You First….In Hollywood”   One of a series of promotional records released by Columbia Records Special Products for the consumer electronics manufacturer Philco (a division of Ford) each spotlighting one of their stereo and TV consoles coupled with a groovy cover girl (this one curled up in a mod, fur sling chair).  Contains cheesy-listening tunes from movies of the day like “Funny Girl” by Barbra Streisand, “Exodus” by Percy Faith and “Days of Wine and Roses” by Ray Conniff Singers.

Spy vs. Spy

The Man From U.N.C.L.E.   “Theme Song” b/w “The Vagabond” by the Gallants   (l-r)   Leo G. Carrol, Robert Vaughn (Napoleon Solo) and David McCallum (Illya Kuryakin)   The series which ran on NBC stations from 1964 – 1968 included contributions from James Bond creator Ian Fleming, Robert Towne (Chinatown) and Sci-fi author Harlan Ellison.   U.N.C.L.E. of course stands for the United Network Command for Law and Enforcement.   U.N.C.L.E.’s archenemy was a vast organization known as THRUSH.   The original series never explained what the acronym THRUSH stood for, but in several of the U.N.C.L.E. novels   it was expanded as the Technological Hierarchy for the Removal of Undesirables and the Subjugation of Humanity.   THRUSH’s aim was to conquer the world.     I learned about the cold war from watching TV like this.     (I’ll post the equally awesome “Girl from U.N.C.L.E.” album soon)

Cat power

Here’s the soundtrack EP for Josephine Siao’s 1967 film The Golden Cat (飛賊金絲貓), another one of her sadly unavailable “Jane Bond” movies. (Pathe/EMI Records)   (China)     “Hear this at Soft Film and Explore the ephemeral past of Chinese entertainment from Hong Kong, the U.S.A., and around the world: vaudeville pioneers, flappers, aviatrices, burlesque dancers, hula hoopers, movie queens, sex bombs, jade girls, tomboys, pin-ups, sour beauties, girl jocks, swordswomen, and go-go girls.”
