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)

Tween peak

Peggy Lipton Ode Records   (1968)     For me she’ll always be “Julie” from the “Mod Squad” (which was on during my formative, and heavily TV influenced, pre-teen years).   But she’s also been Mrs. Quincy Jones, Norma Jennings on “Twin Peaks” and is the mom of Rashida Jones’ (from “The Office”).   This is the first of two LPs that she made.   Each includes a composition by Laura Nyro:   Stoney End (1968), and Lu (1970) and they both made the Billboard Charts.   (As did many others with Nyro songs – Barbara Streisand, Three Dog Night, The Fifth Dimension, etc.).   It’s not as bad as most of the “golden throats” recordings by TV stars.   And the cover shot of Lipton, a former Ford model isn’t bad either.
