Everyone is not a winner, nor did every 1972 album made the cut for 72 From ’72.

Here is a selection from the early scratchings.

In the meantime, which would you snap up at your local charity shop?

  1. Do you own all of these? My dad would have enjoyed many of these titles.

    1. If I answered the question I’d need to make your listen to them. All of them.

      Can I post cassettes of any to your Dad?

  2. Wow. What a terrifying person you’ve turned out to be. Denim, plaid jackets, embroidered peasant blouses, and someone sporting a crocheted cover for a couch cushion. In the midst of all this horror, I cannot put my finger on it, why does the (Serbian?) lady look so very scary? Is it the impression that there’s a regiment of T-72’s right behind her, to enforce the mandatory attendance at her mandatory polka recital? With the 101 Singing Strings droning through reggae music close behind in fearfulness.

    1. It’s actually a personality test, Robert. You have passed.

      And in passing, what about Mandatory Polka Recital for a punk metal band?

      1. Yes! good band name. MPR ~ Rock with the 2/4 Beat or be Beaten. I guess the Celtic punk bands always had accordion, Pogues, Dropkick Murphys, Mahones, etc.

  3. I don’t recognize any of these albums, so I approve! 🙂

    While I’m a huge fan of the Hammond, the “Mighty Hammond” album looks like an atrocity, not only based on its cover. “A Walk in the Black Forest”, “Music to Watch Girls By”… I suppose you can’t make that stuff up! 🙂

    Or about “Pipes and Drums”?

    1. You may not know The Goodies, Christian, but there is a classic episode where they set up the Goodies Pirate Radio station in the English Channel and have but one record… “A Walk In The Black Forrest”. ‘Nuff said.

  4. Probably the Ukrainian accordion lady.

  5. That is certainly a collection of music.

    1. Ah, THAT’s the word I was after. Music.

      Some of that will be along quite soon.

  6. Manchild and Hermanos similarly repulse and fascinate me. You have already with this one post exceeded expectations for 72. Higher and greater things ahead I can feel it with that uncomfortable feeling I get when I consider these albums are somewhere in the Vinyl Connection collection.

    1. Manchild is utterly appalling yet hypnotic. After staring at the cover for 15 minutes I unaccountably found myself delivering communion to the cat.

      It could, of course, all be downhill from here Neil.

  7. I’d go for the accordion album. A much under appreciated instrument. My partner Julie a fair exponent of the accordion.And maybe the Reggae Strings album, just for the heck of it.One of those one-play albums.

    1. Reckon that is a fair call, Vin. I do have a jazz album by Frank Marocca, an accordianist. Can’t say I spin it often, but I’ve never culled it. 😉

  8. This is a collection that rouses my curiosity. For example, what was going on at the Ashfield Club?
    And how good is Glen Daly?
    I’m pretty sure that a passed client of mine had that Hammond organ album; I might have heard some of it. If it was a CD (sorry, sorry) I’d grab the Pipes and Drums.
    Fun post.

    1. At a more prosaic level, DD, today I picked up 3 Wes Montgomery CDs, which made me happy. 🎸

  10. I’m able to rest easy now that I know someone–for some reason–has recorded A Whiter Shade of Pale on a Hammond organ. I’m not sure what’s more alarming: that these albums exist in the first place, or that you own all of them! 🙂 But I love you turning your concept on its head: instead of the gems of 1972, some of the dross. And it resulted in some really entertaining comments!

  11. Having collected some LPs from my Dad’s loft, I am now the ‘proud’ owner of GLEN DALY, Live at the Ashfield, Glasgow! It too is on the Golden Guinea label. (Can’t say it’s one of my most treasured albums, but does remind me of when I was a kid.) 😀

    1. Impressive. Not only do you have one of these, but you are willing to own up to that. Congratulations. Your prize – “Pan Pipes Polka Party” – is in the post.

  12. What a motley crew, I’m sure I’ve seen some of these either in the bargain bins at charity shops (and you know it’s bad if it’s in a charity shop’s ‘just take it!’ bin’) or Worst Album Covers lists

          1. True. Maybe scratch and sniff, a la Polyester, would be the way to go.

  15. Fine, I’ll just axe my 5 part series of posts on The Torchmen. I’m rather torn as to whether my favourite is Beardy Torchman, or Sporty Torchman.

    1. I have individual posters of all of them, sans torches, up in my crypt wall. Sorry, bedroom wall.
