I took off work Friday afternoon and went to Ellicott City MD to take photos. I went into a vinyl record store and they had a bowl of drive pins available for purchase :-D No 45's though.

This are both great ones Vernon. I have some found memories from high school of the Starland Vocal Band's album.

My wife hates this one. Not just because of the music, but she says it's about two horrid people :)

Trivia about Ruperty Holmes: Not only did he write the Pina Colada song but he also wrote "Timothy", the 1960s novelty song about a couple of people trapped in a cave who, uh, get very hungry.

Although I've heard the song many times, this was the first time that I actually listened to the lyrics. :-8
But it does have a happy ending. :)
