German 45 rpm record sleeves

Bought a few singles recently and found a bunch of cool 45 sleeves, most of them seem like generic German sleeves from the early sixties. The only song I was familiar with is the novelty song “Baby sitter boogie”.
My friend Jens Bornhoft, informed me after I published this that Amiga was an East German record label (and might well have been the only one) and the green colored single “Sand Mannchens Abendgruss” was from an East German children’s TV show.

I Hate Me, part 671,914

 

Late afternoon at work. Large guy, kind of a mess lugged in a large garbage bag of records. I have found that the majority of the time somebody drags in a large garbage of records that’s usually where they belong but like Charlie Brown and the football I’m always hopeful.
Hey Dude, I gotta lot a great records that I gotta sell…they’re takin’ up space.
Ok, let me take a look at them. Please take ‘em out of the bag
He takes them out and they’re mostly shitty and moldy and a lot of them are stuck together from water damage. They are on the far side of unsellable. The record on top was Phil Collins-No Jacket Required.
They’re all good right? Dude, I hate to sell ‘em, I love ‘em…but…ahhh you know…
Man, these records are….terrible…man…they’re moldy and stuck together. Jesus, man….Christ…look at ‘em…they’re shot.
No….dude…no..you don’t want…uh..(looks at the Phil Collins record)…you don’t want…Phil…Phil Wilson?…Dude, Phil Wilson…You can’t sell that?
Nahhhh…sorry man there’s not much call for Phil Wilson these days…sorry..These records are in terrible shape.
(heavy sigh)…Alright dude.
and he lugged them back out

Dude, you can't sell Phil Wilson?

Dude, you can’t sell Phil Wilson?

K-tel’s Crazy ONE DOLLAR DIRIGIBLE catalog

Found this catalog in a collection we bought at work, I think it’s from 1977. My favorite things here are the t-shirts, who knew there were Foosball shirts? Please remember that the Crazy ONE DOLLAR DIRIGIBLE is not valid for t-shirts. [CLICK ON IMAGE TO ENLARGE]
