Car Boot Vinyl Diaries

Car Boot Vinyl Diaries

Following on from Wednesday's post, I got two more LPs at last Sunday's boot sale.  The first is the Pet Shop Boys' debut Please.

Pet Shop Boys - Please (1986)

I've been looking for a vinyl copy of this for ages, and it's in excellent condition and was only £1.  I tried to pick out a couple of fave tracks but couldn't as it's all so fab, so here's the Spotify link for the whole thing:  Pet Shop Boys – Please

Lastly I got Pastiche by The Manhattan Transfer for £1:

The Manhattan Transfer - Pastiche (1978)

The Manhattan Transfer are a vocal harmony group originally formed in New York in 1969.  Pastiche is an album of cover versions in various musical styles including jazz, motown, pop and ballads.  It's a heck of a mixed bag; unfortunately this particular album isn't on Spotify. However, this track appears there on a greatest hits:  Manhattan Transfer – Four Brothers

I didn't get to a car boot sale today due to lack of transport, fingers crossed for next week!
