I've been VERY busy for a while listing heaps and heaps and heaps of vinyl lps. Lps have been gaining in popularity over the last ten years, and I think their popularity might now be reaching fever pitch, if the bidding wars I've been experiencing on my online auction site are anything to go by. The thing about music is that there is something for everyone, and while many of the lps I will be sharing are most definitely not to my taste, they are well loved by someone. I am basically going to share a random selection of 5 an episode, and I hope you enjoy them as much as I have.
I had never heard of this South African group before, but I quickly realised their vinyl is pretty collectible. The lp wasn't very expensive, but I have a few more which I will share later, that have done very well. Their rendition of this song is very respectable too!
A popular South African singer. Not quite for me!
Bobby Angel was a very popular South African country singer, and you can't get more country than this!
For the first time I can't find anything on YouTube for this lp. It is lovely orange vinyl and consists of a medleys of popular songs not sung by the original artists. These kind of medleys were very popular at parties.
Little Ronnie is so cute! I haven't heard of him before, but now I'm glad I have!
Music has the power to transport us to very specific moments in our lives. We all have songs we are desperately searching for, and those we wish would never be played again, ever. I watch customers in the shop, and see the joy on their faces when they find an obscure cd or lp, and it makes me feel fantastic. My own music tastes tend to be indie/alternative, and discovering new music is a passion. I am that crazy middle aged woman, blasting whatever the flavour of the moment is in my car!
