Some Mixed-Up Records …

£2

Mixed Up Records in Glasgow’s West End is a smashin’ place to find some vinyl bargains.  I really don’t think we’ve walked out of that place empty handed!

Today we bumped into a good friend who was also having a trawl through the racks.  I had The Everly Brothers’ Original Greatest Hits in my hand when I met him and I told him how chuffed I was at finding this for just £1.  A few minutes later I stumbled upon The Best of Merle Haggard in another one of their ‘bargain bins’.  Again just £1.  That’s one serious vinyl bargain and such a great collection of songs.

When I got home my wife got the coffee going and I convinced her that The Everly Brothers were more than just childhood memories of parents having parties (we all had parents that played The Everly Brothers, right?).  The harmonies are pretty incredible and if you listen to anything that most of the mid-to-late-sixties pop groups were doing you can trace it right back to those two.

The Best of Merle Haggard, though, that was the real treat.

  1. Thanks for popping by. I’ll be getting back to your station when I bracket some time. I see there are lots of takes that grab my interest. I stopped at this one, well because of Phil, Don and Merle. Your take on ‘The Best of MH” is the kind I like. One sentence says it all.

      … likewise! I’ve seen you around the blogosphere and figured it was time I stopped by. I’ll be visiting the archives when I grab some time.

      1. Thanks, “likewise”. I’m trying to keep this thing manageable. I’m picking up all sorts of new listening, reminders on other music and having a few chuckles on the side. I might try to sneak another take onto Bruce’s “festival”. Probably a Merle slant. I’ll be back to drop some comments. Later
