Thanks i said i would have her back as an avatar. Caroline won a tourney today in New Haven. Her fourth New Haven in a row. Have never seen a woman with a more attractive smile, have you ? I want her to take out the US Open next week. Want her Want Her Waaaaaaaaaant Her :mrgreen:

Getting back to the topic now, David informed me that the legendary Hound Dogs Bop shop in Melbourne, Australia will be making a comeback as a mail order business. That's where i get the Elvis stuff from.

It was taken in the summer of 1970 - here are a few others from the same time viewtopic.php?f=2&t=63314.

You could try emailing the official site http://agnetha.net/ - let me know if you get any response ! :mrgreen:

I appreciated the comments about the effects of one's wife and family on one's Elvis obsession.

It seems to me that collecting tickles a nostalgia bone in our brain , satisfying some long ago emotions of coming home with an Elvis 45 rpm from the record store, etc.

But with finances, I have at times had to pull back and ask "is this just all about me? or could I be doing more for my family ? So I try to keep a balance. I say indulge enough to keep your sanity but avoid the "Must-have" feeling unless you have no one to answer to!

I often refer to "hard-core" fans here, meaning "serious fans" who want to delve deeper into his alternates, live shows, official and otherwise.

That said, my late mother (an original '50s fan) and then older brothers, introduced me to Elvis (2 of the 3 are gone) and came nowhere near as intense as I later became, happy with most of the RCA product and then not even all of it.

But I'd never say they were any less of an Elvis fan . Their own enthusiasm was that contagious. In that light, it's never about what you "own."

I would argue that you need nothing to be a fan and nothing but memories to be a collector.

You can't place an amount on being a fan and there is no set number in order to be considered a collector. That's unless you think you're better than everyone else or you're trying to "keep up with the Jones'" so to speak.

That's exactly what I was thinking. I still lack 3 LPs and 5 CDs to be considered a true fan.
