– May three to nine

The last 7 days or so I’ve been working on new purchases for the Philips Minigroove website: 16 singles/EP’s, 16 ten inch records and 23 LP’s. All vinyl has been cleaned, many covers were cleaned and/or repaired. Finally, yesterday and today, I entered all information on the correct webpages. What remains is scanning all items and that’ll take much more time. I still have a couple of hundred items to scan…

One of the nicest finds probably was the album pictured below. A classical album with a Paul Huf cover featuring Ann Pickford, from the famous “SL Series”, but released in the UK only (with number SBL 5226), despite the Import No. given on the back cover (S 04644 L). It’s not shown (not even mentioned) in the Paul Huf book “Record Covers”.


– Dedicated French 7 inch series

I still had a few EP’s to add to the website and I finally did so today. Under ‘Other’, 7 inch series have been added for Guy Béart, Georges Brassens, Les Frères Jacques, Juliette Gréco and Mouloudji. There were also a few additions done to the standard 432.000 series.


– Table updates

All numbers of 10 & 12 inch albums, listed under dedicated series, which are also part of Philips’ standard series (because of a corresponding number), are now also listed in the standard series. A number and a link to the correct dedicated series is given. Singles and EP’s will follow some time soon.

Under construction: dedicated series (7 inch, Other) for Guy Béart, Georges Brassens, Frères Jacques, Juliette Gréco and Mouloudji.
