The weather was OK so we decided to brave the car boot as there may not be many left this year now. Walking in I saw a chap carrying out a bag full of records, hopefully he’s bought all the crud I don’t want. I did manage to pick up a few though, the price was OK to keep me happy enough, £1 for an album, 50p for a 12” single. That’s reasonable, so what the hell, might as well grab some classics. Yes, you can argue I didn’t need any of these, but that’s the problem with being a record collector, you may not need them, but you want them. Some may say I have an addictive personality perhaps? Anyways, this is what I picked up. First up, the albums.
And the other LP I picked up was with the in-laws in mind, sadly turns out they do already have a copy, so this one is with us for now. A copy of “Tango In The Night” by Fleetwood Mac. I don’t know many of their material but this one does have “Little Lies” on, so at least I know that one.
And onto the 12” single haul. First up, we have a copy of “Is This Love” by 80’s rockers, Whitesnake. Now This is a classic rock ballad, one of maybe two songs I know by them (the other of course being “Here I Go Again”), and also this one was on white vinyl – so it had to be done really for the asking price of 50p.
An absolute classic tune from Run DMC featuring Aerosmith, “Walk This Way” – great condition and a sweet tune, mixing hip hop and rock. Very pleased to pick this one up.
More 80’s pop in the form of “French Kissin In The USA” by Blondie singer, Debbie Harry. I remember this from back in the day, it’s pure cheese.
Giorgio Moroder and Phil Oakley’s “Together In Electric Dreams” on 12” was next. A classic 80’s dance tune featuring the singer from The Human League and was a tie in for a movie that I loved back in the day. I used to have the film on VHS that came in a box with the soundtrack on cassette, pretty sure I gave that to a mate, regret it a little now. Killer slice of 80’s pop dance though.
More 80’s pop in the form of “I Heard A Rumour” by the classic Bananarama. Loved them in the 80’s, still a bit of a guilty pleasure really. Nice condition, pleased to stick this one on the turntable.
And finally, we head to the 90’s with the debut single from girl band Eternal. “Stay” is a mix of pop and r’n’b and although I’ll get slated for this, a decent pop tune.
So overall I was quite happy with the morning’s haul.
