CHARITY SHOP EXCURSIONS – WASHINGTON – PART 25

DIGGING IN A BOX OF CHARITY SHOP RECORDS:


Last Monday I ventured into Concord, a small town on the outskirts of the centre of Washington, commonly called “The Galleries”. I hit quite lucky in a couple of the charity shops and indeed even left behind a few item that I would normally have bought!

With this in mind I decided to raid these shops again hoping that the records were still unsold and forlorn next to the classical records. Fortunately they were. Nothing rare but I wanted them!

St Benedicts Hospice in Concord had several new items and plenty more CDs for sale, so I dug deep and pulled out a few plums. I was very pleased to find a 3 CD set of Bobby Vee‘s singles, I’ve been looking at this one on eBay recently and the cheapest I could find was £15. I paid 20 pence for the donated copy! 

A few doors down the row of shops is The Children’s Society. Last week I enjoyed some success here, especially the John Schroeder Orchestra LP “Dolly Catcher”.

This time around I found both volumes of the BBC release “Sound Effects” – the record The Jam were inspired by in 1980 for their album “Sound Affects”.
