Over here (London) the charity shops have an uncannily similar selection. My set of Herb Alperts' first 14 LPs has come from charity shops, none costing more than 1 each. Andy Williams is always there, and I was in a charity shop on Monday last and there was one of his Xmas records. You hardly ever see Burt Bacharach because the Easy Listening trend of a couple of years ago made him a bit popular again. Lots of Tom Jones, Englebert Humperdink though. Seems that it's the same cast offs wherever you are.... All the best, Kieron --------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------- Subject: island albums Sent: 09/16/98 1:02 pm Received: 09/17/98 1:21 am From: john rausch, jXXXX@XXXnet To: Spectropop List, spectroXXXX@XXXties.com jack wrote: >There's this pretty funny new cartoon on Nickelodeon called "The >Angry Beavers ...well jack,glad to see we have a sense of humor going on here at spectropop! i will try to catch the angry beavers, not to be political BUT... it's good to see friends finding levity ...and cool music, in todays "clinton witch hunt" multimedia! wish i could take a vacation, not from work but from the planet...so tired of hearing the clinton thing ...and so goes my question...to all my spectropop friends... the old island album thing, if you had 5 lps(cds) to take on a deserted island forever...could you make a choice? personally i could not but i`m very interested in every one elses opinions. ...of course i would take all my ronnie spector /ronettes lps. lets have some fun :-) jonr Presenting the Fabulous RonettXXXX@XXX://www.geocities.com/SunsetStrip/Studio/2469/ --------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------- Subject: Re: Spectropop V#0146 Sent: 09/16/98 12:06 pm Received: 09/17/98 1:21 am From: Paul MacArthur, Rtf_XXXX@XXXedu To: Spectropop List, spectroXXXX@XXXties.com <
