High Flyin' Saucer Action

You cats and kitties don't need to tune in to the X-Files to dig a little saucer action. A recently concluded ebay auction found the pine top high flip bidding make it above two Jumpin' Benny Franklin's and one Swingin' Al Hamilton. The auction item was the rare 1956 Buckley single "Flight of the Saucer" (Hip Records, # HI-270-1/270-2) This collaboration with composer and orchestra director Lyle Griffith featured Griffith as a news reporter, His Lordship doing his best Martian dialect, and a wild space age jazz band blowing the roof off the top of the sphere. The final price: $220.16.
