Another Sunday Flea Market 7″ Vinyl Record Haul!

Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five. The Message. 1982.

Greetings vintage mates. Just like in November I struck lucky again at the local monthly flea market, and picked up nine French pressings of vinyl singles released between the late 70s up to 1990.

Total cost: 6 EUR / 6.78 USD / 5.12 GBP.

Condition: All discs minty mint. Picture sleeves fair to excellent condition. Another winning morning I reckon ๐Ÿ˜Ž I was particularly pleased to see the Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five single The Message, The Logical Song by Supertramp, and Fade to Grey by Visage.

Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five. The Message (instrumental). 1982.

Sparks. When I’m With You. 1980.

Visage. Fade to Grey. 1981.

Paula Abdul. Opposites Attract. 1990.

As always, thanks for looking ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Grandmaster Flash!! I would say I havenโ€™t heard it for decades but I actually heard it last week as itโ€™s on one of my playlists coincidentally. Good to include the lyrics there, I knew it off by heart but have always thought it was pissing on the stage, on the stairs makes much more sense. After all these years ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    • Thanks Steve. I was so pleased to see it and grab it. You’re right about the lyrics, funny how sometimes we mishear things. It was a good move by the record company to print the lyrics on the single, plus even a French translation as it’s a French pressing.
      One thing that always annoyed me about releases was when there was no lyric sheet with the record, and you had to rely on music magazines like Smash Hits to print lyrics. Nowdays there are so many lyric sites online we’re spoilt for choice!


    • Cheers Resa! Was so pleased to see the Grandmaster Flash!
      I Ioved ‘I Can’t Stand The Rain’ when I was kid. Just need to order a new stylus for my record player now, so I can actually listen to these goodies as they were meant to be heard ๐Ÿ™‚


  3. Wow! Some massive songs you got here. Grandmaster Flash, he who started the Electronic/Sampling/Techno revolution is a great find – it was his music that helped inspire Daft Punk. Then Paula Abdul and that live animation video. And finally Sparks with the Mael brothers – for some reason I have been getting quite a few recommendations on YouTube for this duo, songs such as “When do I get to sing my way”, “Never turn your back on Mother Earth” and “Beat the Clock”. Brilliant collection that can only be played on “RONALD” brand keyboards!

    • Thanks FT. I was pleased with all them, but the Grandmaster Flash was a special treat to see. Love the Sparks tunes you mentioned, and would add too their single ‘This Town Ain’t Big Enough For The Both Of Us.’ Yes, I remember that Paula Abdul video – great stuff!

      • Aw TVTA….”WordpressTown” is big enough for both of us, honest! Seriously I didn’t mention that single as I thought everyone knew about it but having seen the amount of Millennials and GenX youngsters posting “First Time Hearing Sparks” videos on YT and for other bands I realise I’m showing my age.
        I also seem to recall Grandmaster Flash inspired Blondie’s rap in the song “Rapture” too.
        In other news, I’m sending a few more pictures for our project to you ok, check your email shortly.
