Not just any London Bobby...

...but rather, THE London Bobby.

54 songs for 25 cents? What a deal!

Let's take a close look...

As usual, a few titles that are familiar, maybe some I've heard in passing.

Not sure I've heard Sweet Georgia Brown with vocals. I presume it's not an instrumental.

Hmm, bit of an unfortunate title here.


'ello, guv!

Not a lot of info on London Bobby, but here's his Facebook page, and a site that's apparently a place to get info for the purpose of hiring artists to perform, in which Bobby has a page.

Glorious Gloria

As Kevin Malone would say, "nnnnice!"

I didn't realize, but she was married to Alan Thicke for a long time, himself quite the songmaker. Her mother was also a singer and her father played trumpet for Tommy Dorsey. Not only has she had a long, successful singing career, but she is an actress as well.

Here's her biggest hit, and the opener to this album, "Friends & Lovers", a duet with Carl Anderson...

Not really my thing, but she has a sweet voice!

T.G.I.F.: The Movie

Yeah, I'd never heard of this one either. ;)

Got a little lazy by reusing the main image, but cool caricatures, though.

The first LP is on the left, the second is on the right, and the middle is the bonus 12" single, as noted on the front cover. Possibly the only album I have with 3 sleeves inside.

Jeff Goldblum's in it? Maybe it's not so bad. But, T.G.I.F. or not, disco still S.U.C.K.S.*



*but seriously, there are some good disco tunes, especially the ones that lean heavily on funk

The Four Brothers

Sorry, I mean The Brothers Four.

"Frogg" is intriguing, as is the guitar on the far right. A tenor guitar, apparently.

Endorsement from Mitch Miller is pretty huge, whether he was involved in their discovery or not.

Is he flipping his vinyl pizza with a trowel? :p

Cars Love Jesus Too

Early inspiration for Pixar? ;) Quite the colors/brightness here. You could see this one across the room! Very cute and well done, though.

Whoa! Benny, who has quite the eyelashes, it should be noted, can also sprout arms?! Impressive car! Even Pixar can't do that. ;)

Focus!

Talking real focus, not the Dutch prog rock group.

Nice enough cover, but why does it look like her arm is the only thing that has proper focus? :p Dunno what's up at the bottom. Like the bottom of the lens was obscured somehow. Oh well.

Love these notes they'd add to albums. Not sure if they go into this stuff on modern pressings. I'm guessing no.

Surprise!

I guess this title has a dual meaning, since I haven't posted in a while. :p (people commenting on stuff would help motivate me to continue, hint, hint...)

Love the super enthusiastic stance the kid in the front has taken. We should all close our eyes that way.

The surprise? Hmm... I wonder if the image is reversed or that kid just has his shirt on inside-out. :p I also wonder if it should be titled I'VE Got a Surprise!

Nice simple image in the gatefold.
