Amazing what you can pick up from skips...

lyrics

78rpm

As I was going home one day
I passed by a rubbish bay
Among the things they’d thrown away
A pile of shellac caught my gaze

I stopped and took a mooch around
No-one noticed as I dragged them out
I resolved to make them safe
Take them home, investigate

Though left outside in sun and rain
There were no cracks, they seemed ok
When they were dry and all cleaned up
I sat with a cuppa to take a look

There was Paul Robeson and Charles Trennet
Amalia Rodriguez and Danny Kaye
Sophie Tucker and Jean Sablon
At 78RPM

Thought they’d sell in cyber space
Amazing there what people pay
As some of these names were new to me
I read their life stories...

Paul Robeson and Charles Trennet
Amalia Rodriguez and Danny Kaye
Sophie Tucker and Jean Sablon
78RPM

On an old Dansette I gave them play
As I listened I was blown away
What I heard changed my mind
How could I sell such delights
I wiped away a tear of joy
Put ‘em in the attic with the rest of my toys

[Spoken]
And I mused that maybe in twenty fifty nine someone walking home like me might find a copy of this little song...Take it home and put it on...

about

Glyn Bailey UK

It takes particular life level of experience to produce an album like 2059. Growing up in a shabby sea-side town, absorbing old films and half-digested biographies, various faltering careers (bed salesman, MP's assistant), are the backdrop to his music. Nowadays Glyn can been seen performing live with longstanding musical partner Phil Senior on bass and Lizz Beahan on violin as 'The Beholden'. ... more
