Digging in a box of charity shop records:
I was up and out early today to fiendishly ram-raid the local Asda but before I did that it passed my mind to check out the British Heart Foundation in the Galleries shopping centre.
They had a few records stocked neatly on a shelf earlier this week but I decided not to buy them because they were already in my archive, but then had second thoughts and became determined to pick them up if they were still unsold.
All of the records were still unloved with no-where to go, so after paying the tiller-man the small but perfectly rounded vinyl stash was in my bag. The singles are very dirty and are desperate for a clean but at £1 each it was worth the outlay.
Coming home today:
- Geoff Love and his Orchestra – “Big Western Movie Themes No. 2” (Music For Pleasure MFP 5204) 1971
- Cream – “I Feel Free” (Reaction 591011) December 1966
- Small Faces – “My Mind’s Eye” (Decca F.12500) November 1966
- Harpers Bizarre – “59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin’ Groovy)” (Warner Bros Records WB 5890) March 1967
I’m going to make a post on each album and select the most appealing cut. Keep checking in for those updates. The amount of records I’m buying at these charity shops means that my reviews will extend well into 2022.
