eleven albums for £17

Digging in a box of Charity Shop records:

Here we go again – When I was scouring the charity shops in Chester-le-Street for records I regretted not picking up a few more items that I noticed in one of the outlets. So, as collectors often do, I returned to the scene of the crime the very next day and bought more “Hot Hits”!

I found the majority of these records in ‘Books & Bread For Kenya‘, all of them were priced at £1 each and I may add all of them were in superb condition. A few of the covers were less that perfect but the vinyl itself (the most important thing) was in mint minus. They appeared to be unplayed. Possible dead stock from somewhere?

The ‘Not The 9 O’Clock News” LP was £5 from Scope, perhaps I paid too much for this one, but it’s an original pressing on BBC Records from 1980. The Kinks collection is from 1971, despite the garish psychedelic cover! Someone in Golden Hour’s graphic design department must have still been a Dandy from the Chelsea-Set, dropping his acid at the weekend and drawing his visions Monday to Friday.

Coming home today:

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