The Border Brass - Tijuana Christmas (1:59)
The Border Brass was just one of many Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass knock-offs that helped feed the world's insatiable appetite for faux Latin easy listening instrumentals back in the late 1960s.

When Ichiban boss Debbie blogged a Nervous Norvus 45 here yesterday, I was reminded of the positively eye-popping NN photos buried deep within the Life magazine archives. Photographer Ralph Crane snapped these images back in 1956 and they seem to have been hidden away in the vaults ever since.
Since Life's photographic treasures are not always labeled with 100% accuracy, finding them was a real stroke of luck. Instead of identifying him as Nervous Norvus, he's dubbed "Nervous Nervous" in the archives! Anyhow, these are only a few of the Nervous Norvus pictures they've got stashed away over there. Check out some more. Sure, many of them appear to be duplicates but have a look anyhow and your day will likely be made.

I leave you with these fabulous out takes of the great Ernie Anderson losing his shit while doing voice over work for ABC television. Anyone growing up in the 70's heard Ernie's amazing voice constantly on television, radio and movie trailers.

Johnny Seay - Three Sixpacks, Two Arms And A Juke Box
Most of Johnny's hits, not that there were all that many of them - but he did have a smattering of chart success stretching from the late 1950s until near the end of the 60s, were released under the name of Johnny Sea. The pronunciation didn't change, only the spelling, when he reverted to his birth name of Seay. In any event, this 1968 outing gets my nod for the Honky-Tonk Record Of The Week, full-up with fiddles, steel guitar and heart-wrenching lyrics about blotting out pain with the help of a little binge drinking.
