A quick visit to the local second hand shop brought these two...


RCA 2440

A weird, droney, moogy gospel track that you keep expecting to burst into life but doesn't and that makes it somehow more interesting. No youtube clip unfortuneately.


71 322 / 531 568-7

These Vadim reissues are really expensive due to the feeble pound so I was very happy to find one second hand for a fiver. Not Serge at his best but close enough.

And the postie brought these...


SSR 10

New(ish) Punk release that took my fancy when I heard a soundclip of it. Sounds just as raw on the deck.


LR 3449

An obscure one off solo single by Estelle Bennett of The Ronettes - includes Hitler sample!!

I went crazee today I bought 30 singles for £3.
Probably a load of dross to most people but it made me happy,
I was looking for something quirky and labels I haven’t got.
Out of the 30 only 6 wasn’t on the data base
6 were all new images
And 2 were variant labels.
Here's 15 if them.
I can put the other 15 up but your probably bored of them.

Paul Vinyl: What a great eclectic mix. Something for just about everyone there, I would say. Well didn't quite get as many today, but as bigtom16 would say " I just had to buy something".


Got this as an addition to my Good Earth collection also hadn't heard this for some time.


Lond/Amer (just for a change!). Sounded just like I thought it would be. A bit middle of the roadish.


Lond/Amer (again). Yes, in the same mould as the New Christy Minstrels.

And finally,

CBS - Microbe - Groovy Baby. Got this as a little brother to go with the CBS/Direction "Groovy Baby" Compilation Album (Sleeve Notes - Dave Cash) I got way back in 1968.

I wonder if people are starting to buy 45s in part *because* of this site? I have looked at the odd stuff in charity shops recently and thought: "I wonder if that's on 45cat?" :grin:
I've done that many times.

Well done Sladesounds, Sounds like a good contact. Where in the country is this 'dealer'? I could do with a few bargains like these? :wink:

I bought another 20 the other day here's 14 of them, 10p each.A few from the 2000's for a change I haven't many singles from that decade.


Does anyone remember 'Delamare' I have a sticky label on one of my covers, sold by Tesco, We used to look at people shirt labels when I was a kid to see if you had a Delamare shirt which were cheap (I had a bright orange one that I was forced to wear) Brutus were the shirts to have.

Oxfam Cardiff 33p

It's as bad as the title etc sounds - a country ditty about a trucker who finds Jesus and gives up the booze - "your pathway leads to destruction, desolation etc. etc." :sideways:

Just happened to be in Cardiff this morning and went into Oxfam to have a quick look - 3 big boxes selling 45s 3 for 99p, lady told me they were clearing the shelves. Walked away with 40+ US radio demos although mostly C&W including "Jesus In Vegas" which I'll put up soon.

Today I bought the following:


Great instrumental track and used as a theme tune by a number of radio deejays over the years and on Stateside too, currently my next favourite label to collect after London American.


Bought this for the "B" side House Of The King as I don't have a copy of this.
I aready have a copy of Sylvia on a Belgian single, but don't know if they are different versions. Will have to compare later.


This is one of those singles that once you see the song and the artist you just have to have it in your collection.


I had recently come across a few Irish pressings of this single and was under the impression from comments made that the Made in England single was the one that was in the minority, but now I'm not so sure if there's much difference at all. No matter, I've always liked the song anyway.


This one brings back memories of primary school age and listening to the BBC Light Programme. Must admit I'm not that impressed with The Gnu Song. Never thought it was that funny then and I still don't. On the other hand A Transport Of Delight is very clever. (See video from VinylSid) "hold very tight please". Those of you familiar with certain Armstrong & Miller sketches can no doubt relate to this.


Keeping a lookout for early Black/Silver Atlantic singles and came across this one. As the guy in the shop said "you can't go wrong with Wilson Pickett"


Some Glen Campbell songs I'm quite partial to. This one in particular.
Unusual title. (The playground is probably next to McArthur Park) Well it is a Jim Webb song.

Also bought New Seekers/Lyn Paul - You Won't Find Another Fool Like Me.
Polydor 2058 421. What attracted my attention to this single was the fact that the inner circle of the usually reddish/orange label was in fact white and I then noticed that the single was made in Austria. Anyone know the significance of the inner white label?
(There is an example of this on the database under Austria/Polydor 2058 435
The Hollies - The Air That I Breathe)

My final purchase was a single recorded and produced in Edinburgh on Auld Reekie records in 1984 for and on behalf of the United Nations Association and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.
The Choristers - "A" Side - Tell Us (The Children's Anthem for Peace)
and "B" Side - Was That A Tear Lord? (Theme for the World's Refugees)
"A" Side starts of with futuristic outer space announcement and sound effects developing into a children asking what's it all about theme type song.
Don't quite know what I was expecting, but was actually better than I thought it would be. "B" Side is a more traditional sounding hymn, but with a modern slant.

That's the lot for this week pop pickers.

I went to three car boots, one table-top sale and a fete yesterday and I ended up with.....20 60's sleeves for £2. I'm quite happy to have the sleeves but I would rather have had some vinyl!

I was out in the country a few days ago and visited the local second hand shop that has had the same huge stock of 45 for as long as I can remember and as it usually takes about an hour to go through them with people pushing past and me having to crawl on the floor to reach that other box...even though I knew that it was mainly rubbish..I made a bid for the lot....and they were so glad to get rid of them, it cost me next to nothing.
I am now trying to create a shortage of 45's in Sweden(which isnt very difficult by the way) with the help of my trusty Stanley knife,,,don't want any escaping and finding their way back to other second hand shops.
No doubt many will turn up here-just out of badness- but the religious stuff goes to the blade first."Laughs loudly and cruelly with lots of echo"
