Ray Parker Jr. Ghostbusters theme. 1984. 45 tours West Germany pressing.

Happy New Year vintage mates! May love, joy, light and creativity be yours in 2022!

I spent the Christmas and New Year holiday working, with just two days off in between… luckily one of those days involved going into the nearest city for a spot of shopping, where I stumbled across a cool second-hand comic book store which also sold a selection of vinyl records and CDs. I plan to go back again later and grab some of the albums and CDs they had, but for now here are ten singles I purchased.

Format & Era: 7 inch 45 RPM vinyl. One picture disc. 1970s / 1980s. French and West Germany pressings.

Total Cost (Xe converter): 10 EUR / 11.37 USD / 8.40 GBP / 14 CAD / 15.64 AUD

Disc condition: All ten discs minty mint with two having mild surface scratches.

Picture Sleeve Condition: Fair to excellent condition.

My Best Picks: Seeing a Star Wars record always makes me happy to add it to my May The Vinyl Be With You collection! I was also pleased to see the novelty Zorro disc with its still-intact cut-out mask. The Elton John picture disc was a nice find too – Empty Garden was Elton’s 1982 tribute song to John Lennon. (edit: just checked out Thompson Twins Doctor! Doctor! on YT and man I forgot what an absolute 80s classic that is, and kind of sums up that era of music, especially the synths.)


Meco. La Guerre Des Etoiles (Star Wars). 1977. 45 tours French pressing.

Zorro theme. 1985. 45 tours French pressing.
