A double album that includes five songs leftover from the "Darkness..." sessions, Bruce Springsteen's The River reached no.1 in the US and no.2 in the UK.

It's listed as number 250 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time and I bought it for £1.50. Spotify: Bruce Springsteen – The River
Next was Flanders and Swann's At The Drop of Another Hat, bought for £1.
|Flanders & Swann - At The Drop of Another Hat (1964)|
It features 14 selections from their musical revue of the same name which debuted at London's Haymarket in 1963. Produced by George Martin it includes such delights as The Gas-Man Cometh and Song Of Patriotic Prejudice .
An Elvis compilation is always a good thing to have around and at £1.50 this collection of 40 songs was a good £s to hits ratio:

On double gatefold pink vinyl, it looks good too:
Also for £1.50 was Fire Brigade by The Move:
|The Move - Fire Brigade (1972)|
It's a compilation of Roy Wood et al's hits including Blackberry Way and Brontosaurus .
Finally for £1 was Pelican West, from eighties popsters Haircut One Hundred:
|Haircut One Hundred - Pelican West (1982)|
Nick Heyward and co's debut album of brassed-up new wave includes the singles Fantastic Day and Love Plus One. It still had the "free booklet and 2 Bandfax cards" tucked inside the sleeve. I got Graham and Les (Les!).

In addition I bought a copy of Bruce's Darkness On The Edge Of Town for £1.50 to send to my brother.
Six great albums including two doubles, all in great condition for a total spend of eight of your English pounds, a sunny couple of hours spent rifling through records with other keen vinyl hunters, plus a jumbo hot dog on the way out - my favourite way to spend a Sunday morning!
