TWO Famous Five LPs - 1970s

Postby Rob Houghton » 06 Jan 2018, 20:28

Two LPs of Famous Five stories - Treasure Island and Mystery To Solve. Treasure Island has photo of TV series.

I know some people here collect these from the 1970s so just thought I'd post this here.

£14.99.

'Oh voice of Spring of Youth
hearts mad delight,
Sing on, sing on, and when the sun is gone
I'll warm me with your echoes
through the night.'

I remember seeing these in WHSmith and Woolworths in the 1970s. The price varied- £21.75 comes to mind. There was a price difference of several pounds (£6-7) between the two shops- wish I could remember which was the cheapest.(£21.75 was the cheaper of the two).

That was unbelievably expensive in the 1970's!!! Unless I got your meaning wrong? :shock: Most LP's would have been around £2.50 - £5.00 at the most!

Yes, I think Rob's right. There is no way they would have been £20+ in the 1970s. The only records that were ever anything like that price were specialist Japanese imports that you occasionally saw in the Virgin Megastore in Oxford Street, London. Certainly not in WHSmith's or Woolworths.

When I was above myself, I was a curious pair.
My lower feet still trod the ground; my uppers trod the air.
I said I must come down a peg, I know not where I stand.
So, reaching up, I pulled my leg and took myself in hand.
