Possession Obsession...Again.

Being a collector of all things Hall & Oates I continually add things to my collection.  Most of what I purchase is from Ebay.  But, I also frequent record resale shops, etc.  These acquisitions of both from Ebay.  The first item is a Bigger Than Both of Us Press Kit which I was stoked to find!  The second is a set of pictures with the negatives from the early 80's.  Love that yellow leather!!

And here are the pictures!  I think they speak for themselves!!

Thanks for reading this short entry.  I'll be back very soon and we'll start chatting about the upcoming Rock 'n Roll Soul Hall of Fame Induction ceremony.  My tickets have already arrived!

Dirt, Desert, and Philly Soul Darlings!

Have I been away too long?  Probably!!  This post stems from a conversation happening on Facebook regarding the 2003 Hall & Oates spread and article in Dirt Magazine.  The spread featured Daryl Hall, John Oates, Tanner Oates, and Hall's longtime friend, Marcia Strassman (although named as Marcia Strassburg in the article). 

Marcia (of Welcome Back Kotter fame) and Daryl have been friends since the mid-seventies.  So friendly, in fact, that Daryl gave Marcia a "wings necklace" in which she wore on a regular basis.  She can be seen wearing it in episodes of Welcome Back Kotter as well as in press photos.  Hope you enjoy!
