  • BBC News 24: Vinyl Revival

    News 24 this morning, and probably on loop throughout the day....an article on the vinyl revival focussing on VV types.

    Bloody sure that in a one second fragment a record shop buyer is peering closely at Duncan Lamonts 'Best of The Bossas'. I thought that legally that could only be sold in Age Concern.

    Catch it if you can...if only for bandana man scoring Jimi Hendrix in a charity shop live!

      They had the same story on 5 Live yesteray. Was funny as they seemed to get lots of irate texts telling them they'd ruined it, as everyone would be winging there way down to the local charaties asap. I now expect to see everything priced up to about a fiver.

        I doubt it. Most “rational” people will just be sitting in front of there TV, quietly shaking there head and saying ‘How sad is that. Some people really should get a life”

          Hehe - yes, I think bandana man may have done us all a favour

          Just saw this on BBC1 ... was hoping for some 'a spokesman from 'cult' website VinylVulture dot co dot yookay told us earlier today...' type action, but alas - not a single Lord Thames quote. Just where do they find their researchers??

          But without taking this thread done the oft trodden CharityPricingRant Lane, my local Cancer Research has recently ditched the 50p cardboard boxes and got a 'Collectors Rack'. Prices now suitably hiked ... Praise be for the old dear and her 4 for a quid deals a go go at the YMCA

            I think I'm banned from the BBC - if the number of job rejections I've got is anything to go by! I bet it's 'cos I once wrote to them asking about the music on Pages From Ceefax, and I've been condemned to the 'nutters file' ever since.............

            Anyone remember when Newsnight covered the 'easy' boom, and Paxman gave Mike Flowers a monstering?

              It's on the website, too...

              ... ...
              If you're looking for a pristine copy then this isn't the one for you. The vinyl looks like someone has polished their brickwork with it and the label has been ruined by some fool with a pen.

                Sounds like Dr Barnardo's put out a press release with the aim of shifting some of the rotten old tat they've got mouldering in their shops. Fair enough!

                I think anyone expecting to see half those ten most requested LPs in a charidee is seriously optimistic. Now, if it was Mrs Mills they wanted......

                  Oxfam bans Max Bygraves!!!!!


                  Max Bygraves says he understands the shop's no-more-Max stance
                  A charity shop in Kent is asking for records and CDs to sell - as long as they are not by Max Bygraves or Val Doonican.
                  The Oxfam shop in Canterbury has a sign outside saying it does not want any more records by the two veteran crooners - because it has so many already.

                  The manager says it is not meant as an insult, and says the large number of albums by the singers show how successful they have been.

                  Max Bygraves told the BBC there were so many of his records in charity shops because lots of people who bought them originally had died.

                  Gilly Gilly Ossenfeffer

                  Staff at the Oxfam shop recently did a stock-take of all their records and found the same artists and albums cropping up again and again.

                  They were great records and they gave me a lot of financial pleasure

                  Max Bygraves

                  Manager Kay MacEachen said: "We discovered we have an absolute plethora of Max Bygraves, Val Doonican, the New Seekers and musicals such as The Sound of Music and Oliver.

                  "It's a measure of their popularity and success, it's not meant as an insult and I hope I'm not going to offend anybody.

                  "I was brought up on Max Bygraves - Pink Toothbrush, Blue Toothbrush, Gilly Gilly Ossenfeffer and all those, so I hope I'm not going to offend Max Bygraves."

                  Bygraves, speaking to BBC Radio Kent from Australia, where he is on tour, said the records had served him well.

                  "It's quite all right - don't forget we all grow older and a lot of the people who bought those records are with us no more.


                  Val Doonican's easy listening style proved too easy to give to Oxfam

                  "I'm 80 this year - if you make it there you're a survivor and not everybody makes it I'm afraid.

                  "They must have handed them down to people who thought 'well, it's not my music'.

                  "They were great records and they gave me a lot of financial pleasure."

                  He said he knew some people gave away old vinyl copies of his albums after replacing them with CDs because the quality was so much better.

                  Mrs MacEachen said vinyl was still a much-wanted format in her store.

                  "We love having vinyl of Donovan, Bob Dylan, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Elvis Presley," she said.

                  "Recently we sold an Elvis single for £79 so it's a good market for us.

                  "Perhaps we'll get a rush on Max Bygraves now."

                    roffle. sounds like they should make it available on DVD. I'm sure plenty of 'specialist' collectors would pay to see Jeremy giving out any sort of 'monstering'...

                    On the website aswell eh? Blanket coverage of vinyl - hmmm - what are the beeb up to??


                    'This week on 'Rotation, Rotation, Rotation' Phil and Kirstie help a 28 year old account manager replace his entire CD collection with bargain priced vinyl. Kirstie gets a great price on ebay for the Run DMC 12" collection his older brother gave him in 1995, but despite picking up every Portishead album for under £500, Phil struggles to find any Dido releases in LP format - until a tip off about a limited radio promotional 12" has him rushing across the country!'

                            They haven`t introduced the "wack rubber rack" have they? Thought that was just a Cheshire thing. Horrible rubber rack that smells funny and all the records in plastic sleeves with at least £3.50 price tag on everything. One Cancer Research near me is tryin to flog South Pacific for £3.50! i could get about 7 copies for that.... Ah well sign of the times i guess.

                              Sounds like the thing - didn't notice a funny smell, but all the records in plastic sleeves for sure ...
