Charity Shop Music Finds: August 7, 2017

I paid a visit to the local Tip Shop on Monday which sells recyclable goods in order to help the homeless in the community. I've picked several vinyl albums up from there in the last year usually between 25p - 50p.

Most finds have been exceptionally good, you get the odd duff quality one but at these prices you can't really complain to much!

Anyhow my finds from Monday were seven albums and one extended play all totalling £2!

20 Fabulous No.1's of the 50's (Music For Pleasure, 1984)
Does what it says on the label, some good ones here too, Eddie Calvert, Al Martino, Buddy Holly, Adam Faith, Frankie Lymon and Cliff Richard to name a few! Part of MFP's 50s series released back in 1984).

Burt Bacharach - Portrait In Music (A&M Records, 1971)
