BBHQ Books, Music, Videos and More

When you order books, CDs, videos or other stuff via BBHQ, your purchase will usually go through Amazon.com. They offer great prices; you pay a shipping charge, but no sales tax (in most cases). It's easy, it's fast; it's secure.

And yes, we do get a teeny, weenie commission. This is how you help us maintain and improve BBHQ. We do a little better if you choose a book, CD, or video that we feature on our site (options 1-3, below). But even if you choose option 4, you'll help us pay the bills.

1. Click here to look for a CD in our collection from the boomer period (late 50s, 60s, or early 70s).

2. Click here to look for a best seller, or book in our library of interest to boomers. Or see our "short list" below.

3. Click one of the videos (below).

4. Or, use the search box at the right to search directly at Amazon.com. Click the down arrow to reveal a drop-down box and select from oodles of product categories: books, music, electonics, apparel, software.... just to name a few. In the "keyword" box, enter a key word or two that identifies what you are looking for. Then, click the "GO" button. That will open a new browser window enabling you to surf the Amazon.com web site. As long as you order from that open browser window, Amazon.com will know that you came from BBHQ, and credit us accordingly. Thanks much!

In any event, we thank you for your support. Any time you think of buying stuff, please do so from BBHQ!

Amazon.com is the largest book, music, and video store in the world. (Yes, bigger than Barnes & Noble, Borders... or any of those.) They sell exclusively online, via the Internet. Amazon.com has been around for a while; they are reliable and secure, and they offer prices as good as (and usually better than) you will find anywhere else. (If you ever have any trouble with purchases made at Amazon.com, you can contact us; we'll make it right. But we're not worried; we order from them all the time.)

The BBHQ Feature Album is "Old Friends Live on Stage (Deluxe Edition) (2 CD/1 DVD)," by Simon & Garfunkel. If you were fortunate enough to see them in concert in 2003, I do not have to sell you. The concert was terrific! This album collection includes 55 songs, plus their new recording, "Citizen of the Planet," and one of the songs sung by the Everly Brothers during the concert. The DVD was recorded during their concert in Madison Square Garden in 2003. For any S&G fan, this is a must have! But then, you knew that already, didn't you?  Old Friends Live on Stage (Deluxe Edition) (2 CD/1 DVD)

The BBHQ Feature Book is “Bobby Rydell – Teen Idol on the Rocks.” This is a “behind the scenes” story of one of the boomers’ first rock n’ roll stars. Told in the first person, Bobby chronicles his short ride to the pinnacle of fame and fortune, his glide through the 70s and 80s, and how he nearly lost it all. Relax; it has a happy ending. Bobby was (and is) a “normal” Philly guy... with an absolute love of music and an amazing gift. For any fan of early rock n’ roll, it’s a wonderful story. And yes, Bobby Rydell is still on tour, playing to boomer fans all over the world. Click here for a closer look at the book.
