    With the open air car boots winding up for winter, though there is a local one determined to carry on until the end of November,
    I have had all sorts of records turn up near the turnips (possibly) including these flexi-discs I found out in the fields, no really.


    Chris Gunning has been involved in hundreds of musical projects since the 60's from film scores (Man About The House) to working
    with artists as diverse as The Gods, The Hollies and Cilla Black, however on this disc he threw his skills into an egg advertising campaign.



    This is sadly not the hostess of 60's TV show Ready Steady Go talking about ghosts and spirits but hair colour, damn.




    Typically tasteless one-sided flexi from JK and it was all an act on the sleeve as he actually preferred schoolboys.





    One white promo flexi for a German textile company oh yes, but there were apparently 2 discs in this original release, oh no!






    This pretty gold disc came free with Isle of Man Colour Holiday Book and features excerpts from the LP The Wonderful World of Man which I still have somewhere...




    The great voice of 70's kids TV show Animal Magic plugs the long defunct holiday firm.




    Brian Matthew has an enviable discography for voicing flexis on Discogs but not this one, so it must be worth a lot then!




    Another giant of the free flexi-disc voice over, Jack usually worked for Readers Digest but here he adds his dulcet tones to help sell Websters Universal Colour Dictionary.




    A disc from the late 60's promoting the famous beer, which is still getting folk pissed and singing since 1829 bless 'em.





    Released in the early 80's to promote one of their finest albums this features four excerpts including the lovely title track.

      I thought we'd decided Alan Parsons was probably a bit rubbish. https://www.verygoodplus.co.uk/forum...nt-tunes-shock

      Check out some of the names in that thread; it's a litany of the lost.

            I found this 5" blue flexi promoting a radio station in Norwich, released in 1984 I'm sure Alan Partridge would approve!

              I only popped out to get some last minute booze and in town I saw there were two charity shops open on Christmas eve,
              so had a bit of a dig and came up trumps with a booze related flexi-disc and in really nice nick, a sweet treat to myself.







              the prize was one of these Achoic "Achiphon" Stereo Projection Systems, they cost £70 then which is over £900 in today's money,
              so they were pretty top of the range for 1966.

                What are the six differences? I can’t see any.

                    Possibly the button on the woman’s cuff differs.
