About Vintage Stuff

The aim of Vintage Stuff is to display some of the ephemera that I have collected, often inadvertently, over the years. I am now deliberately seeking out interesting old adverts, screen shots, leaflets, obscure record covers, picture postcards and illustrations; anything that catches my eye, in fact. They will be mainly, but not exclusively of UK origin (so many vintage blogs appear to be American) and almost always a scan from something that I actually have in my collection, rather than off the net. If you do re-blog, please acknowledge the source. Further stuff, mainly photographs, can be found on my Flickr pages, via the Benny Hill record cover.

The only reason that I bought this single (in a St Albans charity shop for 50p) was that it had an attractive woman on the cover and that I hadn't a clue who she was. As it turned out, Vikki, or Aeone Victoria Watson to be precise, was our Eurovision Song Contest  entry for 1985. Although I am not a particular fan of the event, we usually watch it on TV, although whether that included 1985, I couldn't say, being besieged by numerous small children at the time. The song, 'Love is................', apparently came fourth with 100 points, so did well, later reaching 49 in the UK singles chart. The poor girl was then put into the bargain bin at Woolies. She now lives in the US, recording New Age/Spiritual music as Aeone.

But was it any good? You had better judge for yourself, I couldn't possibly comment.........
