It makes me happy that my readers enjoyed the first glimpse at my record collection and I shall definitely be doing more installments in the future (am trying to think of how to organise the rest of the posts, though...would you be interested in seeing any of my 70s & on collection as well or just the earlier records, which I don't have as many of?)
For now, though, here is a 45 that I picked up at an op-shop once because it was old and I was intrigued by the name of the group: The Brother Sisters.
As much as I love picture sleeve 45s there is still something so gorgeous about the design of these paper sleeves - though I think this must not be in its original sleeve (I don't think Parlophone and Mercury are linked but they do look rather nice together, regardless.)
I couldn't find either of the songs online so I recorded them with my iPhone - the recordings aren't that great but I wanted everyone to be able to hear them!
Side 1: Alone
This song was originally recorded by the Shepherd Sisters and this version seems to be quite similar but I can't really find any information on The Brother Sisters at all! I just found a few listings for the record on different websites and that it was released in 1957. If anyone else was able to dig anything up or knows anything about the group, I'd love to know. I found a mention in an old magazine online when I first bought it but I can't find it now, unfortunately.
Side 2: Pass Me the Mustard
This song is so silly and cute, which is probably why I love it so much.
I know Vimeo doesn't always work for everyone but I am keeping my YouTube account solely for ukulele videos so I apologise if anyone can't watch these.
I'm a wee bit busy, right now, hence the brief post but I am trying to write up some more to queue so it won't be too dead around here.
