Winner of the Super September Vinyl Giveaway

There have been record numbers (no pun intended) of entries for this latest competition, and my glamorous assistant has just pulled a name out of the very full hat. Congratulations to Andrea Smith, who wins the car boot copy of Gloria Gaynor's 1975 disco LP Never Can Say Goodbye.

I'll be in touch, Andrea.  Thanks to all who entered, and keep your eyes peeled for a special Christmas LP giveaway in early December.

Super September Vinyl Giveaway!

I've been neglecting the blog lately, so to say sorry Car Boot Vinyl Diaries is giving away a scrummy car boot copy of Gloria Gaynor's epic 1975 disco album Never Can Say Goodbye, to one lucky ducky!

Mixed by 'The Master' Tom Moulton, Side 1 was the first ever fully-mixed disco suite, with hit singles Honey Bee, Never Can Say Goodbye and her fabulous cover of Reach Out, I''ll Be There woven into 19 minutes of groovesome gorgeousness.  Side 2 is equally fab, with five danceable disco numbers.  The LP is in excellent condition and plays beautifully.

For a taste, you can hear all of Side 1 kicking off last year's CBVD Disco Suite Special on Mixcloud, which also features two ace sides from Sylvester (mixed by Patrick Cowley) and the Three Degrees (produced by Giorgio Moroder) here:

To enter the competition, fill in the contact form at the top right of the page with your name (real or internet), email address and the message: disco.

Names will be drawn from the hat next Friday night at 8pm BST, with the winner announced here and on Twitter @vinylcarbooty.  I'll also contact the lucky recipient by email.  Overseas entries i.e. non-UK are very welcome but it'll come surface mail (slow) if you win.

Good luck!
