Vintage Country Vinyl - Bobbie Gentry

Today's post comes with a Government Health warning.
If you don't like your music with a bit of snap,crackle and pop please move swiftly on.
My recently acquired copy of Bobbie Gentry's 1969 album Touch 'Em With Love is in dreadful condition.
I have cleaned it up as best as I can and it is just about playable.
I've yet to decide whether it is a keeper given it's condition.

In my defence - it was 50p which went to charity, it has a fantastic cover and it's Bobbie Gentry

This series has now been put to bed again

Bobbie Gentry - Touch 'Em With Love


  1. Definitely! (Fortunately I have the CD, so don't have to worry about the Rice Krispies.)

  2. I've got a Carl Butler and Pearl in worse condition than that, and it's l here on the shelves, and gets the occasional play. As for the music. That second song is very good indeed, by the way

  3. I agree, 50p for the lovely Bobbie Gentry has to be well-spent (she's looking good on the cover after all). Perhaps you could convince yourself that the crackles and pops just add a certain romantic ambience?
