  1. 13 so far I may come back when my eyes are feeling less stained and it is so nice to see a John Lewis bag, not sure why apart from it made me feel all nostalgic.

    1. LP quiz plus travel/shopping nostalgia. Why not? 🙂

  2. Eight for me at first try on my small phone screen, a score I’m feeling pretty good about. I didn’t think anyone actually owned #13 as I figured all the extant copies had been funneled to the used vinyl bins based how consistently I see them languishing there everywhere I visit.

      Yeah, well the quizmaster is an old bag. Or nag.

  9. Oy vey! Horrible showing for me: knew artist and title of two of them (#1 and #13), and the artist (I *think*) of another (#8). I join the chorus of celebration for the array of bags. My favorite is the one from Germany with the flight-related quiz. Question 5: Every passenger in first class: A) has their own personal emergency exit, B) has three times as much air as a passenger in coach, C) can enter the cockpit whenever s/he pleases, or D) is rich or famous!

    1. Ah, there are at least three that will make you groan when you see them, JDB.

      The 2001 ‘Quiz’ is great, nicht war? I used to visit the Frankfurt store whenever possible. Bought quite a few CDs there!

    1. With other quizzes I often invite people to reveal whether they did it ‘raw’, or ‘assisted’. So thank you for joining in, for taking the research path, and sharing your enjoyment as well as the score.

      Curious about which three eluded you.

      1. More detailed score: “Raw” I recognized eight albums, for five I needed help to find or remind me of the title. These are the albums that totally don’t ring a bell: 8, 11, 16. Thanks for this very entertaining quiz! It makes me sad though, that I did not keep any of the bags of now long defunkt record stores in Antwerp. I guess I tried, but everytime you move, or lend records or books to friends, you lose some… Haha. Stay safe, Bruce!

        1. So right, Guy. Things get culled… some you miss, others you don’t. But it’s been wonderful how folk responded to those old carry bags.

          Grateful for your feedback too.

          #8 would be a bit tough for non-Aussies, while you are certain to kick yourself about the last one when the Answer post goes up (tomorrow late afternoon, Melbourne time).

  12. Fun quiz, Bruce.
    Although I usually think of myself being like the tune, “I know a little bit about a lot of things” – in this case I knew everything about half of them, and absolutely nothing about the other 8!

  13. I must have drunk too much last night, though I have no recollection of doing so (which means I must have). As a result, I’m embarrased to admit I can only identify two. In the words of my youth, “I suck.” But those bags? They make me miss that same youth! – Marty

    1. Marty, perhaps you should try again on a big screen, in the morning? 😉 I am certain you would know more than two.

      As for the bags, I’ve been delighted that so many folk enjoyed the non-digital nostalgia of LP carry bags!

      Thanks for playing.

  14. I love the “What’s in the bag man?” Idea. Dont tell me those are actually old shop bags you have. I still got a couple kicking around.
    I actually stood on my head to get a better perspective of a couple of them. Didnt get the album but did get a head rush.

    1. Yep. Real bags, CB. Some hoarded by yours truly, others passed on from friends.

      So the ‘downunder’ tactic didn’t really work out, huh?

            8. Ill have to jog my memory or go back in your archives. Just seen your other response thanks. You’ve given me so much that I sometimes wonder where I got it from. I guess I need to start a ‘Bruce File” Thanks for that. I really try to stick with new music i find but sometimes it gets lost in the volume of the stuff I listen to. Eventually if I really dig it, it rises to the regular spin list.
