it has to be said, the orchids are the best girl group ever.
i have 3 of their 7" singles but never managed to find oo-chang-a-lang (alhtough it's available on cd) and i know there's a few other songs they recorded that so far have not seen the light of day. surely some record company needs to remaster and reissue all of them?
i'm getting rid of some doubles and no longer needed vinyl. is anyone interested in buying some or all of these at a great price. as a whole it's worth about £60 (partly due to rita pavone being worth £20, sandie £7, nicolettea £7, martine £5) - but i won't charge you £60!!! i'm open to any decent (or even a cheeky!) offer - i'd just be happy to get rid of them in one lot to someone who'd enjoy them as much as i have. email address to the left. x
this gorgeous hardback features wonderful photos of francoise from the 60s to the present day. all taken the best and most creative photographer of that era: jean-marie perier. he couldn't take a bad photo of her- whether posed or candid - he manages to capture something that is just magical.
this must be the most intimate book available about jane and serge. lots of black and white family photos, serge pulling faces, having fun, the children at play - charlotte a cute little tomboy, jane laughing, behind the scenes snapshots - it feels like a personal insight in to their lives. also included is a short piece by jane to andrew and andrews memories of jane as a child and her life with serge - which i thought was just beautiful - and it's in english too!!! (which makes a nice change from having to slowly decipher a french text!). also included is an embroidered patch, stickers, a fold out poster full of candid photos and some contact sheets. wonderful
287 pages of utter gloriousness! an overview of this iconic magazine from the 60's into the 70's. it features copies of articles and has lots of the wonderful colourful and creative photos we'd expect to see of our favourite dolls. it also has lots of pictures i've never seen before - i just wanted to rip out almost every page and put them on my wall. if, like me, you've bought copies of the original magazines over the years - you'll know how pricey they can be so this is a fantastic (and cheaper) alternative. i have a spare copy too - so get in touch if you want to buy it!
