Don't seem to see too much of the same stuff over on the East coast, but you can bet your life on one of the following -

Bradley's - Always Stephanie de Sykes, never The Goodies
Pye - Brotherhood Of Man
Decca - Jones / Humperdinck
Bell - Glitter
MGM - Osmonds
Vertigo - Quo

Surprisingly rare are Cliff, Shadows, Cilla or any of the usual 60s suspects. Collectors hoovering them up probably to use the sleeves for something else. Tsk!

Don't see it much now but in the 90's you couldn't look for anything without a Sonet popping up with Viva Espana on it (shudder)

A Swan Song in the UK will invariably be Dave Edmunds. I wouldn't mind but they're never in the company sleeve.

(Edit:) BTW, is Swan Song's the best company sleeve ever?

I'm not a reggae fan by any means, but I always thought the Trojan "warrior" sleeve with the label forming the shield was a stroke of genius design.

Transatlantic - the ubiquitous Floral Dance. I think that's the only Transatlantic 45 I've EVER seen in a charity shop, and it comes up SO often!!
In the local market on Saturday I found a stall with one box of 45s, and there were two copies of Floral Dance, one on white and one on Burgandy labels (both with Flaxen Hair) - so I bought the white ;-)

Collectors in Scotland just know that every red Parlophone is a Jimmy Shand record

Decca - The Batchelors + Gilbert Becaud (A Little Love And Understanding)

Never seen that ! If it's common, why isn't it on 45cat ? Just asking...

You mean it's not one of the 738 Gilbert Becaud records that we have listed on the site?!

Exactly. Never heard about the Batchelors (or Bachelors ?) before, either. "A Little Love.." is coupled with a Robin Sarstedt track on Old Gold, that's all I know. So if there is such a record on Decca, could someone give me the reference ? Thanks !

@LouisSidney
The message was that the records you always find in a British charity shop include The Bachelors and Gilbert Bécaud. They never recorded together - thank God :laugh:
What do you always find in a French charity shop? Gilbert Bécaud?

Recorded together, certainly not, but a 45 with Bécaud on one side and the Bachelors on the other could exist ! What do I know ?
Good question, Juke Jules, about French charity shops. I never go there ! There's only one kind I visited once or twice: Emmaüs. It was on an island on the River Seine, strictly for people with cars. So I go sometime to the flea market. None of the British acts you have cited crop up, usually. Frankly, I'm unable to tell you what's most common on 45; two 78s come to my mind: "L'homme et l'enfant" by Eddie Constantine and "Harry Lime Theme" by Anton Karas. Serge Lama, Nana Mouskouri, Enrico Macias, Michelle Torr are very well represented among the LPs.

If I look for reggae singles at a carboot, I can pretty much guarantee that an orange & white Trojan label will be


or the Pyramid single will be

I tend to see John Holt "Help Me Make It Through The Night" whenever Trojan crops up... it's still the only Trojan single I've got it but since I bought mine (carboot, years ago) I must have seen dozens of other copies of it. That was obviously the one that Yorkshire record buyers went for!

About 15 years ago, the most common record around Hull - every store had a copy or two - was Twinkle's "Terry"! I got the distinct impression that had been very popular there!

Oh, to see a Trojan of any design at a car boot. One that doesn't say "Everything I Own", anyway.

Some days when you do the rounds of the various sources for singles,
there seems to be the odd single that keeps popping up nearly everywhere you go.
Today was no exception.
This was today's recurring single:

Oh well, it was a No. 1 selling single, back in 1968.
