    People pay stupid amounts of money for this. I think I paid about £3 for my copy and that seemed like too much. It's got some nice analogue synth noises to sample but apart from that....?

    I agree Blighty, its a nice novelty piece to have and IMO worth £1. That is the same cover as my UK copy Jack, is there a different one ?

    It has the same sleeve that mine has. I've never seen a different one. I didn't realise there was a US pressing.

    from what i understand Happy House records are british in origin, but the parent company is confusingly called Damill US. Maybe Happy House stuff was also issued in the states, but citing the evidence of the TV Favourites LP, which you wouldnt have thought would have gone beyond these shores, and knowing that that man Muller was living in London during the 70's, i'd say that it originated here. There should be a (genuinely) original US issue on another (unknown&#33 label from the late 60's...anyone got that? The first UK issue was on Marble Arch also in the late 60's, in the same sleeve as the Happy House one...i'll bet that the original US has that same picture on it too...

    flippin' eck!!!

    Mine has slightly different artwork - like this, but with an overlaid scribbled crayon effect.

    Well, I think for the "incredibly strange music" or "cool and strange music" crowds is where it's a real winner.

    I mean, it's a kids record, y'know ?

    It's not for adults, so if you don't think it's great, as an adult
    that works for me But I used to play it on my show(s) with outer space noise as the music bed and that works great and I love it

    I guess I am a small child sometimes and when that happens I love it and hate being a grown up sometimes too

    And then Side 2, the music kind of reminds me in a way of
    that Electronic Concept psych record, you know the 1 I'm talking about ?

    Well, for me, the KITCH meter is way upon this 1 and for a kids LP, I think it's great, but that's just me I think it's a good 1 to have as far as record collecting goes

    Sometimes a record/jacket isn't about the music too. It's got a great cover. Always remember, the person speaking is ONLY speaking his opinion. It's not the world or the end of the world, it's just his opinion. No big deal.

    Thanks for the space V V -_-

    I agree Jack, like i said it's a nice novelty piece to have. I just don't think any of the vultures are going to pop a wad of cash on it on ebay as we tend to turn 'em up for 50p / £1 in charity shops / car booters.

    You're right Jack and apologise for my negativity. I guess it just bugs me out that people happily spend £20/25 on it when it doesn't seem to be worth that at all. But the one man's ceiling is another mans floor so what the hey. I'm actually a big fan of children's records myself and general vinyl weirdness but having searched for a cheap copy of 'Bobby and Betty' for a long time I was kinda disappointed by it. That said 'Happy Monsters' is starting to grow on me so maybe 'Bobby and Betty' will too.
