An American in Paris - Vinyl Joblottin' ep.16

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 16 here -

I would like to spend a month in Paris. My days would be full of sketching, visiting galleries and hunting for vinyl in record shops. In a recent joblot I found a 7” single from the MGM film soundtrack An American In Paris. It has inspired me find other records from Americans who have called Paris their home. 

Alban Low is your Joblotter. This Joblot of 6 records cost £5.40.
