This week I have something special that has been in the shop for a while and has been overlooked; as far as the Pick of the Week goes. It is a 1965 First Mono pressing of the Beatles Help album. There are many different pressings of all of the Beatles albums; collectors always favor the first pressings. Mono pressings of 1960’s records are usually desirable, depending on the production quality and re-channeling of the original recordings.
Many new records in stock this weekend including this great gospel album by the one and only Little Richard. If you are on the hunt for records now would be a good time to check out our selection.
In the 1960’s and 70’s many movie and TV personalities got the idea that if people liked their acting then they would also like to hear them sing. Most of these celebrities were incorrect in this assumption and their records didn’t sell very well. But what a great collectable they are. “Bill Cosby Sings” is one of two singing albums he released and his singing is passable. The real fun in these celebrity albums are playing them for friends and having a good laugh. I have quite a few in my personal collection and we have some good ones in the shop including one of my favorites “A Musical Trip With George Burns”.
