When charity shop worker Merriam Keeble took delivery of a donation of 200 LPs she was in for a pleasant surprise. For, hidden away among the records featuring the likes of The Rolling Stones, Manfred Mann and Diana Ross, was a rare pressing of The Beatles’ album, Please, Please Me.
Ms Keeble, who works at the British Red Cross shop in Thoroughfare, Woodbridge, is hoping the LP could fetch in the region of £250. Also included in the collection is a rare The Five Faces of Manfred Mann album, while others by The Rolling Stones could be sold for between £60-80. Ms Keeble said she was hoping the whole collection could raise at least £1,000. “A gentleman turned up and asked if we would be interested in his records,” she said. “We said ‘yes, we would’ and he brought in four boxes of mixed LPs. They included everything from sets of operas and single releases through to some Beatles, Rolling Stones, Neil Young and The Who.”
