D-Days – Hazel O’Connor

I was 11 when this came out in 1981 and had just started getting pocket money. I had been fascinated by the kids records my parents had got me but now I was discovering music for myself. As you can see. I’d written my name on the cover and label because this was one of the records that I took to my end of year disco at junior school, where it was played much loader than I was allowed to play it at home (which was a real thrill). I still collect vinyl to this day but this is the record that started it all.
