News January 10th 2019

Hiya all

Welcome to the initial note of January.

Wishing you all a Happy New Year with Best Wishes for 2019

Back in the depths of the previous century (1975/’76) my pal Iain McLay was working for United Artists Records.

They were planning a TV-advertised Slim Whitman Greatest Hits compilation. Iain’s brainwave was to hold the

release until after Xmas to capture the Record Token market. It worked, and the record was Number One by

the end of January.

Record tokens are now a thing of the past but that’s by way of including a wee reminder that our web store at is open for all sorts of business, with bargains galore (a sample below) for another

10 days or so (ends Jan 13th).
