50 Singles! Part 1

Last week I bought a job lot of 50 7” singles for £22.00, which is £0.44 per single. Which sounds pretty cheap, although the other way to look at it is that I didn’t want all of them so I paid much more per item for the ones I actually wanted. I suspect the latter is closest to the truth although I did listen to a few of them that I didn’t think I wanted but am now quite happy that I got them.

These are they:

The Cure In Between Days
Lene Lovich What Will I Do Without You
Sharpe & Numan New Thing From London Town
King Trigger The River

I don’t like all of them, but there was enough to warrant the purchase and right now I’m falling in love with 45’s all over again.

    Congrats on a great buy! There are several singles in this lot that I’d love to put in my jukebox (if I still had one, that is). “Once in a Lifetime” is one of my all time fave singles and I did have it my jukebox once upon a time!
    Not too long ago I bought 23 CDs for £3. The lot included Monk & Canatella’s “Do Community Service” with its Banksy cover. That alone made the purchase worthwhile!

    Thanks, sorry for the delay in replying, made a trip to Portugal. I have a renewed interest in 45’s at the moment, and old jazz records for some reason. Both are relatively cheap, maybe that’s why!
