The 2013 Advent-ure #7

It was a quick midweek lunchtime dart out of the office, to post a letter or something similarly mundane. I didn’t really have time but something told me I should just pop in to a charity shop before I went back to work. There, amongst the Mantovani, My Fair Lady, and Marti Webb…. was an early Millie Jackson album! That I didn’t already have!    

This is not an easy album to find, so to come across it in a charity shop, on an unscheduled digging trip, was a big surprise.  A nice original US release too. An extra thrill (sad, I know) was to see a paste on back cover, ’73 was quite late to see that on a relatively major label release I think. Really love the lettering style too.  

Millie Jackson has always done it for me. I like to think that connection led me to this record.

Always something nice to discover here (even if I must admit I look for ladies singers...)
And I enjoy reading your happiness when you found the record at the charity shop. No such luck here ! Lots of Andy Williams, James Last & al...
Thanks for sharing.
