Golf Drouot - Vinyl Joblottin' ep.23

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 23 here -

These records were released in France between 1962 and 1964. When I began listening and researching them they led to the 9th arrondissement of Paris. On the corner of rue Drouot and Boulevard Montmartre, above the Café d'Angleterre, I found France’s ‘Temple of Rock’. It was called Golf Drouot, and hosted such great names as Johnny Hallyday, Eddy Mitchell, Gene Vincent, the Who and David Bowie.
