Warsaw Pact - Vinyl Joblottin' ep.6

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.

Welcome to Vinyl Joblottin'
Listen to episode 6 here -

This auction lot caught my attention with its stylish geometric cover designs from the 1950s and 60s. Many of the records came from the Supraphon and Muza labels, which were based in Eastern Europe, behind the Iron Curtain. This week I’ve spun everything into a programme about some of the musicians who were performing in the Warsaw Pact countries of Albania, Bulgaria, Czechoslovakia, East Germany, Hungary, Poland, Romania and the Soviet Union.

This episode features records from a joblot of 6 records that cost £4.82. Alban Low is your joblotter for this 20 minute episode.
