I came back with an excellent hoard of goodies from my local charity shop a short while back, including three records, seven books (Tony Hart and Cockleshell Bay) and two Equestria Girls dolls.


Stan Kenton ~ “Viva Kenton!” [1960]

“Exciting Latin rhythms with the Kenton touch!”

How could I resist?

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.


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


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.
