Digging in a box of Charity Shop records:
After my score of charity shop records earlier this week and because the vinyl I took a chance on was in decent shape; they all cleaned up really well and play-back was excellent, I decided to go back to Scope and raid the box one last time.
I was surprised that the box of cheap (£2 each) records had been replenished and there was more. Lot’s of ’80s soul albums and even more cheapo budget label items from the mid ’70s. I took one look at the covers and decided that I couldn’t pass on some of them at such a reasonable price. Who knows what these sound like?
The Beach Boys LP for a couple of quid was coming home with me that’s for sure and so was the ‘Hammond Organ Dance Party’. The image alone sold it. C’mon, just look at the guy dancin’ with his bird. He looks like a young Jack Reagan from TV Cop series The Sweeney. I bet they don’t know about this one down the nick.
