Don’t really get this one.

That appears to be a drilled out Apple Records 45. The resolution is not quite good enough for me to read . If it's not a reprint or just a copied graphic, It would be after 1968

Looks like "Sparrow" the flip side of Mary Hopkin's single "Goodbye" produced by Paul McCartney in 1969


For all you music aficionados, here is a pretty, somewhat melancholy song sung by Mary for the soundtrack of the 1971 movie "Kidnapped".

Mary Hopkin, credited on some recordings as Mary Visconti, is a Welsh folk singer, best known for her 1968 UK number one single "Those Were the Days". She was one of the earliest signings to the Beatles' Apple label.

Edit: correct track now listed!

I hope sparrows like the house. Waste of a perfectly enjoyable record. :x

Thanks Egg!

It's bad on so many levels, besides the destruction of cultural deposits there's the overkill sheet metal screws when 2 would have sufficed in a non load bering facade element like that. What looks like holesaw gall on the label is also very disturbing

They only want $20 for the whole shebang. I wonder if that 45 alone would be worth 20 bucks in pristine condition? Even still, VERY disturbing...

You can buy a copy on Amazon, with copies ranging from $2 to $10. If you happen across one in your local thrift store, probably 25¢, less if you come across it at a yard sale. 45rpm records are overall considered worthless today, They were pressed in the millions, and using one in an art project isn't a loss. The last ones I had I tried to donate to a thrift store and they wouldn't take them. Ended up in the dump, which is far less desirable than being part of a "cute" craft project.
