After Dinner Dance Party // Vinyl Revival Pt. 3

Afterdinner copy

Not long before we moved into Twee Towers we decided we'd go for a pre-move rummage at a local car boot sale to see what treasures we could unearth for our soon to be abode. Besides the sweet vintage floral plates and strange side tables we picked up, and tucked between stalls laden with garish eighties cast offs and slightly creepy figurines we found a chap with suitcases full of records, who looked on slightly baffled at these two young ladies getting stupidly excited by the dusty vinyl gems they were discovering in his boot. Some of our most prized posessions and particularly special as they were our first joint purchases... So, from that little collection we gathered that day we bring you this weeks Vinyl Revival album, "The Most of Herman's Hermits"

You'd have to be living under a rock to not have heard their track "I'm into something good" - this album also includes "I'm Henry the VII, I am" (you'll know it well if you've ever seen Ghost!), and their playful cover of George Formby's "Leaning on a Lamp Post" - we love how they take ownership and reinvent Formby's hit nearly 30 years after its appearence in the 1937 film Feather Your Nest. The highlight for us however is most certainly 'No Milk Today'...

Happy dancing :)

Much love
R&L xx

Yay Herman's Hermits! They were performing at the bandstand in the "England" portion of Epcot when I went there with my parents in eighth grade. Good times!
