From the Record Bar

Cool record findsA quick detour through the local Vinnies had me pondering the death of the LP. The large area of the cardboard sleeve provided huge acreage for artwork and typography – sometimes amazing, sometimes cringey, sometimes touching off fond memories of my parent’s collection – I’m talking Neil Diamond, Glenn Campbell, Charley Pride… wait, maybe I was flicking through their old collection?!

I had to have this Perry Como album with its saturated colour, 70s type and super-tanned Perry, and gave it a spin on the old hi-fi. I defy you to listen to ‘And I Love You So’ and not mix a martini.

50c bought this great Golden Books’ ABC rhymes record – you read along with the record, and the illustrations by Roland Rodegast and Grace Clarke are absolutely charming.
