    A nice promo by Sergio Mendes, Easy To Be Hard / Ye-Me-Le. And a signed 45 by Jerry Angelo, Crush Me / Mary Lou.

    I've recently found out that Jerry Angelo was Wally Shackell born 1933 in Bridge St, Kilburn. In 1957 he joined the Five Dallas Boys. Most of the band came from Leicester. Wally recorded Shangri La with the Dallas Boys in 1957. He later moved to Australia. These details I found are published in a book Decca Studios and Klooks Kleek - West Hampstead Musical Heritage Remembered by Dick Weindling and Marianna Colloms. Published 2013 by West Lane Books. Avaliable on Amazon. This book is about the Decca recording Studios based in West Hampstead and the Artits who recorded there.

      Planet sleeves are good as are doctor bird/coxsone. Also various inners are worth buying. I've bought auction lots of 7s before just for the company sleevss.

        My Life At The Palace - The Frank Lamarr Story Signed "To Linda, I love you. Please come back with your mother" I'd love to know the story behind that dedication.

        'Jobsworth' - Fred Wedlock's follow up to his only charting single 'Oldest Swinger In Town' - originally written by Jeremy Taylor for the That's Life team and also released as a single. Neither effort troubled the charts.

        Fred Wedlock ‎– Jobsworth

        A Brother Lees single that has it all. A painfully unfunny novelty song on the a-side featuring 50 really bad comedy impressions, and a tuneless maudlin ballad that aims for the heart strings but actually tugs nothing but the lower intestine on the b-side. Fun for all the family!

        The Brother Lees ‎– The Night That The Orchestra Sang

        My sole purchase at the August Spitalfields Record Fair! George Formby And His Ukelele, No.3

        From 1979 - Victor Maddern finds God and releases the prayer collection LP Just For Today - with the intention of selling a million copies. If it sold more than ten I would be surprised. It came with a letter, some leaflets to send to your friends and a photo of the Pope!

        Victor Maddern  ‎– Just For Today

        Victor Maddern At The Women's Institute... An 1984 album of theatrical reminiscences from Victor Maddern delivered to an appreciative audience of the Women's Institute. The rear album sleeve is inexplicably decorated with angry letters from the BBC and IBA asking him to stop writing to them!

        Liberace – Mr. Entertainment. Yeah well, I was in the Fara charity shop in Islington and it was only a £1. What was I going to do? Just leave it there?

        Bingo Crazy - An opportunistic 1973 single from Opportunity Knocks winner, the comedian, panto regular, clog dancer and Chaplin impressionist Ronnie Collis. Sadly for him, opportunity did not knock twice and this was his only ever single.

        Ronnie Collis ‎– Bingo Crazy

        Sandra Dickinson ‎– A Big Star In Hollywood

        In 1965 Stratford Johns felt the overwhelming urge to release a record and share his interpretations of classic American show tunes with the world. A few misfires here and there but otherwise he demonstrates a fine tenor voice

        Stratford Johns Sings

        Fight The Flab - Bras, girdles and corselettes as endorsed by Terry Wogan

        Fight The Flab - Terry Wogan

        Tom Courtenay sings four Trevor Peacock songs from the A.T.V. production 'The Lads', including Mrs. Brown, You've Got a Lovely Daughter, two years before Herman's Hermits had a US number 1 with the track.​​​​​​​

          The two 45s were worth going out already, one is my favourite Hildegard Knef tune on 45 (can get rid of the one-tracker album now) and the other is an italian version of 'spinning wheel'.

          Jack Jersey however was a real mistake though.

            Understandable, though. Based on the sleeve I might have take a punt that there would be a sly groover tucked away on it.

              Jack Jersey was Dutch, real name Jack de Nijs, which my strange bilingual children translate as "Jack The Nice'.
              His records unforunately are the opposite of nice.

                Before he went solo he was in a 60's beat group in Holland called the Losers. Only released two singles, Since You're Gone and Mexico followed by Give Me Time and The Jerkin Tree. Both minor collectables. I think the second record give me time/the jerkin tree is the better.

                  Yes, that's it - they're essentially a precursor to the BBC Radioplay label, providing non-needletime music to fill up airtime on the Beeb when they couldn't play proper records due to Musician's Union rules - used extensively on Radio 2, BBC local radio and the test card in the 60s and 70s. And I am INCREDIBLY jealous you managed to find this.....especially in Reckless, I've not been able to find anything decent in there for years.

                    cheers LT, was definitely one of those records where you think "I'm not ever going to see another copy of this, am I?". Was only four quid but condition marked as "GOOD" - undergraded though, often the case in Reckless. It's a strange random collection this one (some of the other CMS LPs on Discogs look like they are single artist and single session)

                      And 'The Supersisters' mentioned here is Supersister, I presume?

                        yes - I've added it on Discogs and hopefully linked to all the correct artists. Was a bit of a pain, there's a few misspellings and none of the orchestra names seemed to be quite right either

                          Yes, artist credits look fine to me - I think the West German Radio Dance Orchestra could probably be entered on the WDR Big Band Köln page as an ANV, but that's about the only suggestion I'd make.
