Yes folks it's "Hidden Gems and Forgotten Classics" week at Oxfam Castle St. This time I'm not gonna list what we've got, so all you vinyl junkies will have to pop along and have a good rummage!
Oxfam Castle St - The spiritual home of wilfully obscure music ;-)
i once bought a brazen vessel from this oxfam store , and upon reading aloud the inscribed incanctations from its side, found myself delivered to a world beyond time and space.
I was highly unsatisfied with this.
But what was the soundtrack like on your odyssey?
and much more just BEGGING to be added to your collection!
7 LPs for less than £20, can't go wrong.
Buck Owens, Rhos Male Voice Choir (to remind me of home :-D ), 2 x Lloyd Cole & The Commotions, The Teardrop Explodes and 2 x Depeche Mode.
Can you hide the Minnie Ripperton til thursday?
Hmmm, all right then Anto, it's "Adventures in Paradise", we'll work out a secret handshake so I'll know it's really you. Ask on Thursday, it'll be stashed somewhere.
And all you guys with beards trying to sneak into the shop, don't think I don't know where you found out about my vinyl! ;-)
You will know me by the cut of my rakish gait.
"Would you ever look at the cut of that, must be Anto".
What Beach Boys is it?
I got some white label record with "Velvet Underground Acetate" in there. Don't know if its worth anything.
Im after vinyls of the flower power, vaudeville and art rock persuasions- have you anything that fits the bill? What sizes prices and conditions are your vinyls. Im also after toy instruments and HP Lovecraft novels, any joy?If so hold them till tomorrow
The Beach Boys album is "Wild Honey". Other cool stuff includes an Australian pressing of "Fresh Cream" and "Meaty Beaty Big 'n' Bouncy" by the Who.
Esotericeric, we've got all sorts of odd stuff, drop in sometime soon and have a good hoke!
Just to remind people we're open 9.30 - 5.30 on Saturdays and our amazing music dude will be putting out loads of gems all day :-)
Quality records and fashion advice :)
Dude you should have bought the purple fur-collar jacket ;-)
Am I listing current stock or just namechecking random artists?
Only one way to find out - get down to Oxfam Castle St and have a rummage!
Numerous 60s and 70s compilations
Several Johnny Cash,
2 Buffy Sainte-Marie
and a Partridge Family in a pear tree.
Very Festive ;-)
I got what I needed at the Oxfam in Portadown, so the cash went the same way in the end!
