      Oddly, the picture looks more like Napoleon Solo from The Man From U.N.C.L.E.

      If I were Sean Connery I'd be quite insulted if anyone thought the picture on that box looked like me!

    But he is using a Walther air-pistol which is what was used as a prop for the photo-session by David Hurn as they didn't have a PPK to hand. David was a keen air-pistol shooter so it was lucky he had it to hand.

ID:	79621 ​​​​​Some nice LP finds today. Both Thoroughly Modern Millie and Goodbye Mr. Chips come with posh brochures and Mr. Chips is in a gatefold sleeve, as befits the enormous budget of the film. Cooking this afternoon and I think I'll pop A Man and a Woman on the record player (I'm sure there's a joke there somewhere).

          The James Bond game was good value. Assuming it's complete, it's probably worth around £20.00 today.

            It's complete, though the box could be in slightly better nick. It even has the tiny little secret briefcase.

          Here's the cute little briefcase and one of the Bond figures.

            I imagine you have already tried lighter fuel? That's the usual trick. I used to have this problem when I bought rare-ish records in London in the 80s. I sometimes said I'd pay the asking price only if they could get the price sticker off with no remaining mark. More than one place couldn't, which is weird. What would make them put a sticker for 15 quid on a 1956 Little Richard album, thereby bringing its value down to a bout two quid?

              Since I posted this I've come across a wonderful product called Sticky Stuff which is for removing sticky tickets.

              The worst thing I've seen is one charity shop I go in where a helpful member of staff assured the customers their LPs were high quality by writing "checked" on every cover. In biro.

            More soundtrack vinyl finds. I was wondering what the Sexton Blake theme was on the BBC album, then worked out from the picture of Jeremy Clyde that it's from Sexton Blake and the Demon God from 1978. Some interesting tracks on this one: Empire Road, Telford's Change and Don't Forget to Write. The latter was a particular favourite of its co-star, much-missed Britmovie poster Francis Matthews.

              I have a cassette of that BBC album, but sadly no longer any working equipment to play it!
