French Firsts - Vinyl Joblottin' Ep.3

Welcome to Vinyl Joblottin'
Listen to episode 3 here -

Each week on Vinyl Joblottin’ we buy a bundle of vinyl at auction (or find one in a record shop, charity shop, car boot sale, etc). The records are a slice of a collection, giving us a glimpse into a collector’s past. Then we spin each joblot into a theme for you.

This week I was inspired by the story of Hervé Vilard, whose life story reads like an adventure novel. I found his first record, Capri c'est fini, in a joblot of French vinyl. Released in 1965, it was an instant hit selling over 3 million copies and making Vilard a household name overnight. This week’s episode is all about French firsts, debuts, number 1s and world premieres. Vinyl Joblottin is part of the A World in London radio series. 

This episode features records from a joblot of 8 records that cost £4.15. Alban Low is your joblotter for this 20 minute episode.
