Robin Hall And The Bonnie Lass O' Fyvie

Released 1960 unusually the sleeve notes give the details of the equipment used to record the tracks. 

I do not know if I will be able to upload any posts next Sunday as I have the mechanic coming to fix the air-conditioning on the car.

Graham Bonney - Sign On The Dotted Line / Words We Said

This 1970 release was the second to last 45 released by Graham Bonney in the UK.

Cricketone Orchestra And Chorus - The Yellow Rose Of Texas / Down In The Vally

A recent trip into Epsom to visit the Dentist a few spare moments I went into some of the Charity Shops nothing much this was the only record I brought.
 This record was released in 1962 on the cover it mentions that it will play as long as a standard 10" record the last UK 78rpm 10" record was issued in 1960 these 7" 78's were still in the catalogue until 1972 though no new recordings were added after 1968, one thing I have noticed is the UK pressings are on a hard plastic those pressed in the USA are on vinyl.
These records were the last 78's on sale in the UK.

Homer And Jethro - El Paso - Numero Dos / That's Good, That's Bad

Released February 1960 I have seen Homer And Jethro refered to as the Great American Song Butchers the Duo had some UK released this record did not have a UK issue.

Everybody's Children - The Time Is Now / Abide With Me

This is an anti Vietnam War record from 1970 I never managed to get a copy in 1970 as every record shop I went into did not have it in stock, and they were waiting for delivery, in the end I gave up trying to acquire a copy, many years later I found this copy on eBay.

This is a re-post.
