I came back with an excellent hoard of goodies from my local charity shop a short while back for about £3.20, including records, books and dolls.


Music

Stan Kenton ~ “Viva Kenton!” [1960]

“Exciting Latin rhythms with the Kenton touch!”

How could I resist?


Side 1

  • Mexican Jumping Bean
  • Siesta
  • Cha Cha Sombrero
  • Chocolate Caliente
  • Aqua Marine
Side 2

  • Opus In Chartreuse Cha Cha Cha
  • Cha Cha Chee Boom
  • Adios
  • Mission Trail
  • Artistry In Rhythm

Popmobility [1977]

“The disco party record that helps keep you fit.”

This is a gatefold album with three double-sided exercise instruction inserts. It’s quite an odd collection of tracks for working out to! Unlike most records of this type there is no voice-over telling you what to do, just the music.


Side 1

  • Abba – Waterloo
  • Sutherland Brothers – Ain’t Too Proud To Beg
  • Johnny Mathis – I’m Stone In Love
  • Fleetwood Mac – Albatross
  • The Simon Park – Orchestra Eye Level
  • The Three Degrees – When Will I See You Again
  • Tina Charles – I Love To Love
Side 2

  • The Trammps – Disco Theme
  • Silver Convention – Get Up And Boogie
  • People’s Choice – Do It Any Way You Wanna
  • Van McCoy – The Shuffle
  • Silver Convention – Fly Robin Fly
  • The O’Jays – Love Train
  • T. Rex – Get It On

New Kids On The Block ~ “Hangin’ Tough” [1988]

I bought this purely for the “RAD” sticker the original owner had placed over Jordan’s face!



McFly ~ “The Heart Never Lies” [2007]

I love picture discs (not McFly!), and this one is signed. Plus it was only 20p.


Toys

These two My Little Pony “Equestria Girls” dolls were only 50p each.


Books

Cockleshell Bay ~ “Dressing Up” & “Cockleshell Christmas” [1982 & 1985]


Tony Hart ~ “Art Factory” 2, 3 & 4 [1980]

Unfortunately book 1 was missing.


My First Book Of Hans Andersen Stories

I actually bought this because I love the inner cover illustration, all of which are by Esme Eve. It has no publication date, but would guess at early to mid 1960’s.
