ARRRGGGHHH! not THE Cilla Black? and is there really a 'Best of' ???.....I'm afraid I just can't bear to listen to her, Nugent_Dirt - as I have exactly the same reaction to her 'voice(?)' as I do to fingernails screeching down a blackboard! ;o>

I DON'T BELIEVE IT?!! - I've just found What I Did For Love by Des O' Connor and also There's No One Quite Like Grandma too!!!.....I shall hang my head in shame now.....

What on Earth has replying to this thread gone and started? - I never even realised that I ever had these two?!! I think I will just have to blame these particular ones on my brother! ;o>

I think I must need therapy?!! - HELP ME!.....somebody? anybody?.....PLEASE!!!

I KNOW!!!.....utterly apalling, isn't it?!

In my defence though, most of them were bought for me and my brother by my Dad?.....but I do remember like it was yesterday nervously queuing up backstage to get Your 20 Favourite Christmas Carols - 1978 LP personally signed - I think I even had a bit of a crush on Hughie?!! - HA HA HA!!!

I do have some very rare Bowie albums somewhere? before I get thrown off the Music Forum forever! I just can't find them, but I know that I definitely do have them,.....somewhere? And I have just found my - STATUS QUO 3 VINYL LP BOX SET which cost me SO much pocket money at the time that I barely dared to even breathe on it - never mind play it. I'm not really into them anymore, so as it still looks absolutely brand-new, I may just pass it on as a gift to someone who is far too young to even remember what vinyl is?!! ;o>

Well I'm 44, so my very worst crimes against Music are several very much-loved and cared for, yet really well-hidden albums and singles that are mainly on vinyl, and not CD - and for very silly and sentimental reasons I simply can't bring myself to part with any of them now.....so you had better brace yourself for these Nugent_Dirt, okay?!! -

The Owl And The Pussycat / Run Rabbit Run - The Mike Sammes Singers - 7" 45
Michael Crawford in Barnum - vinyl
Around The World with Sooty, Harry Corbett and Sweep - 1973 vinyl LP

I'm another who has the Hans Christian Anderson soundtrack album by Danny Kaye and I can't even say i bought it for a friend. I bought it for myself (in 2009) as it was the music (on the radio) of my childhood. And I recently acquired a copy of Kenny Rogers' Greatest Hits. Unsolicited and unopened. I bought tickets to see Glen Campbell and Kenny Rogers because it was Glen's farewell tour. When Glen cancelled, I demanded my money back from Ticketmaster - and got it. But apparently all ticket purchasers were entered into a competition, and guess what, I lost.

I also paid real money for Hear My Song: The Best of Josef Locke as I am a huge fan of the 1991 movie of the same name. One of the strangest albums in my collection is Georgie - The Best Album - 25 weird tracks about George Best. Oh, and I'm a sucker for Legends of Scotland : Glen Daly - can't keep a dry eye when that's on.

I actually saw them live at Shepton Mallett, I also saw Paul Young at the same venue, so there goes whatever credibility I ever had.

I've got Best Of The 80's by Ultravox, does that count as a cause of a raised eyebrow?

'Reasons To Be Miserable'/'Marvin, I Love You' double B-side single by Marvin The Paranoid Android

That was a for instance. If someone was thumbing through duchess dame Camilla Windsor's music collection her husband the PoW might raise any eyebrow if he found some Cannibal Corpse nestling between Handel's Messiah and Cats.

Raised eyebrows are on the eye of the beholder.

Yup PA, I've seen some very odd eyebrows that make Dennis Healy's look like Marlene Dietrich's, like wild, woolly caterpillars trying to escape their faces. Are most men afraid to tweezer the odd errant curling strand before it pokes an eyeball out?
I would'nt say a David Gray or Coldplay CD would make me raise an eyebrow. I'm thinking more along the lines of out and out cheese, camp, very gay or girly.... for straight blokey geezers that is.

Wharfy - If it includes the great Mickey Newbury song - "Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In)", then it's not totally naff.

Posted on 30 Jan 2013, 11:31:41 GMT
Is it possible to raise two odd eyebrows?

I've purchased many mistakes over the years and many are still in a bag in an inacccesable corner. Don't think I've anything questionable but that probably depends on whose looking. For instance i do have one David Gray and the debut from Coldplay (which rendered the follow ups unneccessary) which would meet with disapproval from at least one - can't quite recall who - poster here

I have a Bangles CD, but I'm not ashamed of it.

Only other thing I can think of is The Point - Nillson, which is a sort of rock fairy tale CD.

I accept no responsibility for the Coldplay and David Gray CDs, they belong to Su so they don't count.

That's a very weird collection of 'national Anthems', Lez. Not one, but two for Scotland, which doesn't actually have one (yet), and it's missing the greatest of them all, 'Nkosi Sikelel' iAfrika', from South Africa. I'm sure everyone knows it, but here's the chance for another listen, anyway.

I've got the soundtrack from 'Hans Christian Anderson', with Danny Kaye. I bought it for a friend who had fond memories of her dad singing 'Inchworm' to her when she was a kid, but was convinced it was Frank Sinatra. I made a copy before passing it on to her, and it gets the occasional spin.

Lez Lee says:
The Best of Gary Miller
Ronnie Hilton - No Other Love: His 27 Finest 1954-1957
National Anthems Of The World

I've probably committed more heinous crimes - will check my collection.

......Kenny Rogers greatest hits,think I'll take a trip to the charity shop!

Nothing too off-kilter CD-wise, but I remember having a Tiswas album on vinyl, along with a couple of BBC horror sound effects albums (one was on 'blood red' vinyl).
