A WOMAN has found the exact first album she ever bought while looking around a charity shop in Jersey.
Lulu Baylee took to Facebook to describe how she came across the Boney M album – bearing her name handwritten on the front cover – which she purchased 41 years ago.
She bought it from Lady Jayne records for just £3.23 when she was just 13 years old – and was reunited with it while wandering around Durrell’s charity shop.
Posting on the Jersey Ask! Advise! Advertise! Facebook page, she wrote: ‘I can’t believe what I found in Durrell’s charity shop today – literally can’t believe it!
‘Its the first album that I EVER bought! Not a copy of the album but the actual one (because I did what you’re not supposed to and wrote my name very proudly on the front of it, and the date and time!!) I remember it well, from Lady Jayne records and cost £3.23.
‘I was 13 at time, and we have been reunited some 41 years later. I don’t even own a record player but just had to buy it back! I did get to see Boney M a few summers ago, and they were great. Thank you Durrell!’
Speaking to the JEP, she said: ‘I could not believe it was there. Initially I thought “oh, I love this album” but then I realised it was the exact same one.
‘I think everyone remembers the first album they bought, so it was really special. I don’t even have a record player but I had to buy it.’
