Old Bill - Cokey Cokey / That's What It's All About

One record for Old Bill only issued November 1975 possibly for the Christmas market. I first came across this record about 8 years ago in a job lot of records that my son had brought unfortunately the "A" side record sounded as if someone had played the first 20-30 seconds with a darning needle, I checked eBay and Gemm to see if I could find a replacement there were a couple of copies the cheapest being in the region of £100 so I abandoned the thought of buying a copy of this record I have always thought that everything will one day turn up at a boot sale and towards the end of last year a copy of this record turned up for the pricey sum of 50p. I have no details about this record.

Many thanks to Bopponbob for details of Prostopleer site and tips on how to use it.

There is some life on DivShare I managed to upload both these tracks this morning onto DivShare I could also download them but not play them as the play bar was still missing also there were no embed codes. It will not allow downloads from the old files on the server.

Patience And Prudence - Tom Thumbs Tune / Golly Oh Gee

This December 1958 record was the last of 5 releases in the UK by Patience And Prudence.

DivShare is still not working a number of people have mentioned and suggested Zippyshare so I will give it a try. 

I tried Zippyshare it maybe OK if I was loading a single track as it starts to play the track when you open the page when I opened the page both tracks started playing I have removed the links and uploaded the tracks to Box.
