Eight albums for £16

Digging in a box of Charity Shop records:

Here we go again – today, in both Washington Galleries charity shops I noticed that their boxes of records had been replenished with new items, nothing rare or earth shattering. But I love a bargain, and I love cheap records. These things were all over the place for next to nothing in the seventies and eighties, but I wasn’t interested or had zero intention of ever trying them out when I was a full-on garage punk outsider.

Nowadays though, any ‘coolnesss’ I once had has evaporated and died. I’m no longer a ‘record snob’. £2 an album! C’mon, the money is going to a charity and I get some cheap albums. As long as there’s at least one decent cut, the deal is a good one.

Coming home today:

  • Top Of The Pops – ‘Various – Volume 8’ (Hallmark CHM 660) November 1969
  • Top Of The Pops – ‘Various – Volume 15’ (Hallmark SHM 725) January 1971
  • Top Of The Pops – ‘Various – Volume 26’ (Hallmark SHM 800) September 1972
  • Top Of The Pops – ‘Various – Volume 62’ (Hallmark SHM 996) October 1977
  • You Can All Join In – ‘Various’ (Island IWP-2) 1969
  • The Shadows – ‘Greatest Hits’ (Columbia SCX 1522) re-issue 1974
  • Wings – ‘Band On The Run’ (Apple Records PAS 10007) December 1973
  • Rock Rock Rock – ‘Various’ (Music For Pleasure MFP 1273) 1968

I’m going to make a post on each album and select the most appealing cut. Keep checking in for those updates.
