    "Maybe your dad worked for the CIA, KGB, military intelligence or something along those lines. In searching the web there are sites for those who grew up in the military or similar, but for people like us there seems to be nothing. Most people don't even know we exist. This website is an attempt to address that."

         If you don't know about 'Both Sides Now', it's an amazing site for vinyl junkies, for old record biz people and even for just plain nostalgia folk.  The discographies, Label Profiles, Pictures, Covers, etc. although mostly LP and not Singles are a great addition to anyones desktop.  They certainly didn't include all labels but there are enough to play with.  I can't believe I didn't know about this site, before now.  Click and enjoy on either the attachment or the site
