      A mix of groovy LP's and 7"s have made their way into my cellar the past few weeks, including...



      A nice pair of hippy self help albums, I never realized thought was such a menace.





      I've always loved the title tune so was very pleased to come across the long player.







      I knew nothing about this so bought it on the strength that it was on Island Records from '66
      and should have guessed from the rear that the title tracks were not the usual stuff that Island
      were releasing at the time, it turns out to be quite pleasant easy listening, sung in Italian.

        I don't often buy 78s, but couldn't resist these two from the tip shop (in amongst what looked like a pretty reasonable selection of mostly classical and UK dance bands)

        Rosetta Howard & The Harlem Hamfats - If You're A Viper

        classic drugs song - "I dreamed of a reefer 5 feet long..." etc.

        Red "Pepper" Sam - Some of these Days

        great novelty number by Billy Costello - he was original voice of Popeye until sacked


        also was a Petula Clark single which looked bizarre seeing it on a 78. It was from '54, so still very much in the 78 period in the UK, but I think of her as being a 60s artist...

          Hi everyone, first post here

          I spent a week in the Cornwall and had a great time visiting charity shops (we don't have all these shops in France). I visited quite a lot of them and found some records A fun trip and a beautiful area

            No charity shops in France- zoot alors! Don't you have Emmaus shops over there? My boss has a place near Carcassonne and they have an Emmaus there.

            Nice to pick up a Third Ear Band LP in a charity. Ursula Smith (Pank) was a music teacher at our school a few years ago. She still does the odd classical gig around here.

              Well you're right, we have Emmaus, that's all. And most of the time, it's outside the city center... They stock vinyl but it became quite impossible to find something good nowdays...

                Some classic comedy from the magnificent Marx Brothers - yet with cover art that looks like it's been drawn by a 12-year-old let loose with some felt tips and only a vague notion of what a piano is. Found at Grey N Pink Records in Chester:

                When England won the World Cup in 66, it's reassuring to know that Roy Hudd was right there, waiting in the wings ready to release the official celebration record the very second Bobby Moore had finished his shower. The Day We Won The Cup / Ramsey's Men

                    Thanks Turboellis! To be honest, I paid a bit more than the usual charity shop price for some albums (5£ for some of them, but I got the Third Ear Band for 50p which is great)

                      A fiver is still great going, but paying 50p for an LP will always feel very thrilling, especially when it's a really good LP ... I felt like I was cheating when I paid 6 quid for New York Tendaberry from Disk Union ... cheating on my "rules" ... ha ha ha ... that's another thread ...

                        Third Ear Band is a very nice charity find!

                        As a former big vintage sci-fi reader I love that Starcastle sleeve (with it's complete disregard for the laws of gravity).

                        Nice to see another owner of "Eldorado" on the board
                        Not sure there's many ELO fans still posting here now

                            I've seen that one maybe 4 or 5 times over the years, never found a "Haven For Sale" yet though (only have the Contour reissue). I think it's alright from memory, need to revisit. Hard to go wrong with Fab 4 covers I guess
