Kirkwall had a pop up vinyl shop in Town on 31/08/13. I was not holding my expectations very high on finding anything that I would be remotely interested in, in fact what they had was mostly 80's and 90's music (and a few CD's too?) But would you believe it, the first table I came across had these five little beauties waiting for me, and the price was only £1 ($1.50) for all five!
All the MP3's in the links below were ripped from the vinyl records while playing on a 1961 Dansette record player.

The only downer was this excellent looking Hank Locklin E.P volume 3 (above) in the Country Guitar collection, the vinyl inside was volume 7! (I could not believe he only wanted £1 for them all so double checking the records inside the sleeve did not occur to me). I believe the last owner of these records must have got his HANK's mixed up. The tracks on Volume 3 are; 'It's a Little More Like Heaven', 'Blue Grass Skirt', 'Why Don't You Haul Off & Love Me' and 'Send Me The Pillow You Sleep On'.
