A few years ago, my husband gave me this retro red record player for Christmas - I really don't play the records enough - I have it right beside my computer so there's really no excuse - I need to start playing it more - I have lots!! It plays 45's and the long play albums - a 45 was something I wanted to buy when I went to "Town", they were $1. I've always loved records, they were always playing at our house. If you notice a red theme, there is, I'm writing this for Rednesday - check it out for all things red. I'm also linking up with Vintage Thingie Thursday, Suzanne hosts this great sharing party every week, there's always lots of thrifty finds.
Snoopy vs the Red Baron by The Royal Guardsmen is playing, you can listen to it here. Watch the guy on the left, not much singing going on there.
Click on the pic and you can see this is Bang Shang a Lang by the Archies. I remember Mom brought this home for me, I played it over and over and over, I even played it for my friend over the telephone. Here it is - loved the Archies!
Who can forget K-Tel records, what a great value they were, 22 explosive hits!!! I've been picking up a few of these lately, there`s so many fun songs on them. How about Bad Side of the Moon by April Wine, a great old Canadian band from the 70's - I'll never forget driving to Charlottetown to see an April Wine concert, it was as close to death as I've ever been, I thought the car I was in was going to take off on the hills, the driver was going WAY too fast - it was crazy! We saw April Wine in concert a couple of years ago - it was a much more relaxing drive to get there!
Of course I loved David Cassidy, I ordered this from the record club - that was a big day when that arrived - another album, played over and over... Oh, David, that silky hair, those velvet costumes... Hah!! If you liked all things David too, you better listen to I Think I Love You. This is just a portion of my albums, I need another basket!
It's full of 45's and my list is still there too, wish I could share them all with you!
