I’ve spent a bit of time lately loading on some old 78’s that I’ve recently come across. I don’t normally bother with these, but there’s an interesting mix I believe, so I thought I’d give it a go. I do not have a way of play testing them unfortunately, but most look in good condition. Artists include Very Lynn, Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Frankie Vaughan, Gracie Fields, Max Bygraves, Perry Como, Ruby Murray, Teresa Brewer, and the Teddy Bears.

This month, I’ve reduced several of my Rock items, particularly Indie Rock, so if you are a fan of bands like Silverfish, Drive, The Fatima Mansions, Inspiral Carpets, The Wonder Stuff etc then I would check out my page here
Not one of Germany’s finest contributions to pop music, even though they sold millions of records and won a Grammy. In the late 80’s and early 90’s, Milli Vanilli were one of the world’s biggest pop acts, before the truth came out that Rob & Fab were not the actual singers. Their downfall was sudden and ultimately tragic, as Rob died from a drugs overdose at the age of 32. Seems like one of those situations that started off as a bit of a laugh, but got seriously out of control.
Going through some of my 7″‘s tonight when I came across this track by The Beat. It made me realise how little Ska I had in my collection now, especially since I grew up in Coventry around the time the scene went crazy. Note in diary!
Well, it’s the start of the month, so time for me to bring out a new offer! I’ve reduced the price of several of my Country Music records, including artists such as Willie Nelson, Kenny Rogers, Don Williams and (of course) Jim Reeves. Most are less than £1 + shipping, so please check them out here
The offers on my jazz records on Discogs are due to finish later this week, so grab a bargain while you can! I’ll have a new offer starting in August, so watch this space…
Just been reading an article on the BBC site, about the signs that you are still a raver at heart. The main one was that when you hear a vehicle reversing, you are waiting for the beat to drop. Makes the weekly bin collections a lot more enjoyable, in my opinion. There is something cool about driving around the M25 too at night, except all the nutters on the road that is. Another one is that every time you hear the word “acid”, you want to let out a fun alternative pronounciation, with a high pitched squeal. I did not name any of my kids after Ibiza though…
As every other retailer seems to be doing some kind of offer at the moment, I thought it was right that I did one too! So here we go, I’ve reduced the vast majority of my Jazz records until the 31st July ’19, plus my shipping fees have also dropped slightly. Pick up a bargain from artists such as Acker Bilk, Benny Goodman, Bert Kaempfert, Bill MuGuffie, Bobby Hackett, Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Earl Bostic, Fats Waller, Frank Sinatra, Glenn Miller, Humphrey Lyttelton, Lillian Boutte, Louis Armstrong, Nat King Cole, Pee Wee Russell, Perry Como, Stephane Grappelli amongst others… Click here for the full list.
Just loading a few more tunes tonight, including a 12″ from Daft Punk – Burnin’. It’s in great shape too! Check it out on my discogs page here.
I’ve also got a copy of ‘Christmas’ by Richard Clayderman on my desk, but there are limits as to what records I’m willing to play, especially in mid June!
