The King

IMGP0472One of my treasured possessions is this rather battered wind-up gramophone. It’s never worked very well but, on the odd occasion I’ve used it over the years, it still brings a smile. I’ve a handful of 78’s to play on it as well. One of them – that on the platter in this pic – is Elvis Presley’s ‘Teddy Bear’ released on RCA in 1957.

Years ago, when I also had an old Dansette, I made up a couple of compilation tapes from my 78s. Sometime soon I really must digitise those tunes before they’re lost only to memory.
