I have a number of these Folk Dance records, at school I hated country dancing and later I would not go to the school social events as they always involved country dancing, what is it with Teachers and Country Dancing. I was not the only person who did not go because of the Country Dancing, if they did not have the dancing there would have been 3 times as many parents there.
The record dates from about 1961 all the records from the small batch I brought have the second hand record sticker on them.
I did go to the Boot Sale today and brought 37 records, about half an hour after I got home there was an almighty Thunder Storm.
My PC has decided to play up it is saying that I do not have any CD drives so far I have not been able to get them back up and working.
The Vermont Tempest
The Double Quadrille
Hal Munro - Where Were You (On Our Wedding Day)
Two sets of CD's have just been released one with all the Embassy singles issued in 1960 and the second all the singles for 1961, there i9s also one for the Bud Ashton tracks.
It would be nice if the series is extended to cover all the singles issued on 45's between 1957 -1965.
A 1963 release that failed to make the UK chart. I Kingston Woolworth's they had a large sign suspended from the ceiling that said DECCA the label that brought you:- then other signs gave the singer and groups name, these signs were put up in the mid 60'sand were still there in 1974 the Caravelles were one of the groups listed, though they had not had a hit for many years.
Caravells -I really Don't Want To Know

Released in 1962 not a UK hit.
Alberts - Morse Code Melody
Further down the road from the Albion s the Haywain (there is another pub between them) when I was at school we were always in trouble for dropped aitch's we were told we had typical Middlesex accents, later with the formation of Greater London Hampton where I was living became part of Greater London incorporated into the Borough of Richmond, as you went across London the dropped aitch's became more pronounced. The owners of this pub have joined the scene by dropping the H from the name. This pub was formally a convent .
I had to go into Epsom today for a Dentist's appointment on the way back I went into the Charity Shops I only found about 8 singles this 1959 record was one of them, ,most came from the same collection as they have the same mane written on them.
Claudio Villa - Ciao Caio Bambina (Piove)
On the way to the Dentists I passed the boarded up Albion, they have had to put in some supporting uprights to prevent part of it collapsing, across the road a Weatherspoons has opened, many years ago in this this pub but I have known it to happen in other pubs that when you went to the toilet or out of the bar when you came back your drink had disappeared, sitting round one of the tables was a group of old boys who never went to the bar but always had full glasses, a number of people were suspecting that it was this group who were
taking the drinks, one evening one person had got fed up after he had lost 3 drinks the next one he drank three quarters of it and took it into the toilet with him when he came out the glass was nearly full he left it on the side and sure enough it vanished after that drinks stopped disappearing.
A number of drinkers when they finish their leave about an inch of beer in the glass in busy pubs I have watched people pick up this left beer and drink it, they never buy any just go round drinking the leftovers, we used to go Banger Racing at Wimbledon at the end of the meeting there were two people going round drinking all the leftover beer in the glasses, there was a group near us that had a number of small children they had come well prepared complete with a children's potty just as they were leaving one of the children wanted to go, they used the potty but not wanting to fight through the crowds who were leaving to get to the toilets which were near the exit, it was emptied into an empty beer glass, the two people drinking the leftovers had not seen this indecent, we always waited for thee rush to finish before left, sure enough they got to the vacated area saw the half full glass and downed it in in one he looked a bit queasy after that.

This 1975 release was originally released in 1946.
Benny Bell - Shaving Cream
On yesterday's fishing trip I caught One Cod and two Pollock the sea was as flat as a pancake and glorious sunshine all day. The picture was taken at about 7.15 on the way out from Brighton.

This record dates from 1955 and until last year I was unaware of this show then in one day I found a couple of different EP's and a couple of LP's of songs from this show, and then back to oblivion.
Peter Knight Singers And Orchestra With Patricia Clark And Charles Granville- Vocal Gems From Salad Days
(a) Oh, Look At Me!, (b) We Said We Wouldn't Look Back, (c) Saucer Song, (d) The Time Of My Life, (e) Out Of Breath.
(a) Looking For A Piano, (b) I Sit In The Sun, (c) It's Easy To Sing, (d) Oh, Look At Me.
The Boot Sale today was larger than I expected it to be the good weather brought out both the sellers and the buyers, I brought about 60 singles, before I left home I put on the factor 30 sun block and after 2 hours I could feel burning.
Last week at Priests Hill there was someone selling a large number of Pianola Rolls
This week another person was selling a number of Pianola rolls.
I am going fishing on Wednesday this means an early start so I will not be posting any records until Thursday.
This is a record I always associate with Benny Bell who first issued this record in the late 1940's, I am unfamiliar with this 1978 version, while I was searching for another record earlier today I found the Benny Bell version released in the UK on Vanguard in 1975, I will post it later in the week.
Roma - Shaving Cream
