    Same as mine. Ive had my copy for at least these past fifteen years, and hadn't opened out of the plastic sleeve until now. Your cover may be in a little better shape than mine.

    It was around for years. Even had commercials on late night TV. Owner died of a heart attack....and that was that.

    RIP Frank Robinson

    I guess I never realized that he played for the Orioles too. What a great man. I really enjoyed hearing him speak about baseball. He was a true champion in every sense of the word, and a terrific baseball ambassador.
  6. It also brought us an excellent and epic Super Bowl halftime show!

    This is one of my favorite Bruce 45's....I just love it for the sleeve. Picked this up at a record store in Centerville, Ohio called Dingelberry's. They were going out of business, and the guy just started unloading rare stuff for cheap. That was probably 15 years ago. Dayton Daily News WASHINGTON TWP., MONTGOMERY COUNTY | The original Dingleberry's Records store is going the way of the vinyl record and eight-track tape. The venerable independent music store that opened in 1974 will close its Miamisburg-Centerville Road location at 9 p.m. Saturday. Dingleberry's co-owner Greg Savage, 56, died in December of a heart attack. His wife, Bev, said it wouldn't be right to keep the store open without him. "Too many reminders, too many memories of Greg," she said. "He was the heart and soul of this store." Dingleberry's stocked a diverse array of music, including independent records, and it also supported local bands. The store was lauded by Billboard magazine in 1977 as the first in the United States to show music videos. "Greg was very proud of that," Savage said. "I like coming here and looking at all the nostalgia they've got on the walls," said Duane Prosise of Centerville. "I'm sad to see it go." Jeff Schroeder of Miamisburg used to hang out at Dingleberry's when he was in high school. "This was the place we all came and got our jazz albums we listened to back in the '70s." Dingleberry's will continue its Yellow Springs location, operated by the Savages' daughter, Adrienne. "We are the only music store out there and we think it's just a good fit," Savage said. Competition in recent years from big box stores impacted the original Dingleberry's business. "It's hard to compete with big stores like that, especially on new releases," Savage said.

    Great site and story! Thanks for posting. So close on the interview. Bruce must have had a ton of confidence in his abilities to perform. Usually, as an up and comer, you take any and every opportunity to promote your show. Awesome early pics in the yearbook, too.

    Call me old fashioned, but if Babe Ruth, Hank Aaron, Willie Mays and Ted Williams don't get in unanimously, then no one should.

    Jim, I can't think of a time that I've disagreed with you before...until now. Wins are less meaningful of a stat than they used to be. Just ask this year's NL Cy Young Award winner who was 10-9. But as a note, Schilling topped 20 wins twice. Mussina just once. A better stat is to look at how they did versus their peers in the same era. In the case of Mussina, he was in the running for the Cy Young nine different times. He got 2nd place in 1999, but no better than 4th, 5th or 6th in the other years. Mussina was an all-star five different times. Career ERA: 3.68 Schilling was in the running for the CYA four different years getting to 2nd place three different times. Schilling was an all-star six different times. Career ERA: 3.46. In the postseason, there's no more iconic of a pitching performance as Schilling's bloody sock outing. ALCS vs. the Yankees? Are you kidding me? And, as for the postseason, Mussina was 7-8 with a 3.42 ERA. Schilling was an amazing 11-2 with a 2.23 ERA including 4-1 in the WS with a 2.06 ERA. ....but you're right that his post-career fumbles probably cost him votes. Trump's endorsement last week likely didn't help.

    Great class! Mussina making it makes me wonder where Schilling is. Also, Martinez making it makes Big Papi a shoe-in in the next few years.

    Baseball fans!

    Marty took over for the great Al Michaels in 1974. He got to call Hank Aaron's Ruth-tying HR on Opening Day in 1974, and then got to follow that up with WS wins 1975 and 1976. And, he's been able to call many games with his son Thom. Amazing run for a Hall of Famer.

    Saints got screwed. I’d be pissed.

    I had no idea... (random trivial facts about music)

    Another Ramones trivia bit....Bruce originally wrote "Hungry Heart" for the Ramones. Landau heard it, and suggested that Bruce keep it himself. The Ramones never recorded it.
