Super Shiny Sounds of the 70s

I was invited to the Oriel Myrddin Gallery in Carmarthen last week to contribute to their Christmas show event with a 70s record playing ‘Pick Your Own Vinyl’ disco!

I got a chance to try out my new outfit, an upcycled silver jacket by Carys ‘Wenchwear‘ Hedd and the tightest silver jeans I could find and squeeze into, I think I may have found my new look!…

Massive thank you to Oriel Myrddin Gallery for inviting me to be part of the evening, Phil for helping out on the decks and everywhere else, Carmarthen School of Art photography dept and Iain for the photo booth and photos.P1066516a


More 70s data

Sorting my 7inch record database by date to find the 70s records reveals quite a collection (Click to look closer).  Seeing what I have is easy enough, finding the actual records is much trickier!

Currently scattered around the house there are some 3020 7inch records that have been added to the database and more still to list..



70s Records & Player

In anticipation of the Oriel Myrddin Taste Night next week I have started sorting through 45s for my 70s selection box…

Quite a few to look through yet…
I recently started to alphabetise my 7inch collection, though so far I’ve just done the ones in picture sleeves, eventually my database will become much more useful!  Below is the first page of entries arranged by date starting 1970…

I will be mostly playing the 70s selections on this Technics SL-Q2 (kindly donated by Toby Downing I think).  According to it dates from 1979-1981 so rather appropriate I’d say!


Given the quantity of disco music that’s likely to feature, I think it’s only right that I try out my latest mirror ball finds,  look at them shine!
