I ran away to a charity shop & there's no way it's gonna stop.
I watched this thread unfold at work a few days ago... but was to busy to be able to join in, thanks everyone involved!
I love records with the most obscure purpose and have posted a few before on here.
I'm very envious of a few in thus thread and recognise a few I have...
I love that fight the flab flexi! Towny is your Lee Cooper 45 really poorly recorded like mine? Was there an invitation to a party on it and if so where - mine is for Glasgow.
Life is hectic at the moment but found the time to add these to the thread. keep them coming Mr. Gardner, Towny and all ...
A recent religious find - great sleeve horrible, horrible music.
I think a few of you were talking about this one...
Possibily the most boring record I own.
Almost certainly the weirdest album I own, with some very, very disturbing songs on it.
One of the better ones musically, nice jazz....
As wot ended one of my Xmas Swap CD's....
I also found a flexi recently by Fenella Fielding advertising packaged ski holidays to europe, but couldn't find it for a photo...
In ((( VISUAL ))) Stereo
great selection someblokecalledfuz, I see you have an excellent carpets
related selection including the Wendy Craig one the Intervet one is
a favourite especially as the dog reminds me of a younger version of mine
recent pic of Enzo on holiday, believe me he is thinking of postmen, he hates them!
good to see another Cliff Adams disc too, I love the 2 I have as they have timeless jingles
cover of '69
'Pink Paraffin' has to be the title of the year so far. You need to do a chart, HG, with mp3's, and you need to do it NOW!

Some more 'product placement' ...
L: 'Heart sounds', 45rpm vinyl with "recordings of a series of heart sounds encountered in the most common congenital and acquired cardiac defects". Sponsored by Leo Pharmecutical products, date unknown, but presumably from the days when smoking wasn't linked to health problems - chap on the cover appears to be having a fag...
R: 'Breathing exercises' 33rpm red flexi & booklet from 1961. Sponsored by Bayer Products
L: 1-sided 45rpm vinyl, consists of Roger Moore plugging Faberge, finishes off with the Jeff Wayne Faberge jingle. Produced by the Sound Department, London NW1
R: 45rpm vinyl, two tunes: 'Sweet Melody' by The Slim-Brothers and 'Hermesetas Beat' by The Coffee and Tea And Sweetener Company. I guess snappier names for fictitious bands could be imagined, but there you go. The Hermesetas sample pack was missing from my copy
I dug up some more spoken word albums today, the first one
is apparently quite rare, I must admit I have never seen another
and the cover is on very heavy gatefold card.
The Jack Hargreaves albums are great! though I just can't seem to track
down a copy of 'Know Your Onions'...
I love those Jack Hargreaves LP's. He says such bizarre things, like 'people need to realise that dogs are not little human beings with hair on, but animals' and 'my father used to say that every time you take a horse out, you bring another one back.'

Here are some other advert discs you may and may not be aware of. I really like the washing machine ones. I have two. I think it's the round and round thing that gets me. The clearasil spots one is pretty fine too. Those Cliff Adams ones posted earlier are quite superb - one has the classic Hot Chocolate "Late Late Drink" ad on it.

"Record collecting is no mere hobby, no innocuous leisurely diversion. It is a feverish passion bordering on dementia, driving those under the influence to irrational, compulsive, fanatical extremes."

I found this great 7" today and rather than start a new thread
on motor racing I thought I would post it here. From 1972 when
fag company John Player Special sponsored Norfolk based racing team
Team Lotus. It came in a fine gatefold sleeve & check the Team Vocalist

A strange mixture of the mystic and mammonic on this thread! And so.
Give us this day our daily Taystee.
Interestingly, the colour orange is named after the fruit and not the other way round.
I hope not. That would make me the Jimmy Savile of the record racks.
