70s Vintage....do you really eat the red ones last?

Here's a neat promotional 45 from, obviously 1976. Anyone from Canada over 35 will recognize the Smarties jingle. It was played to death throughout the late 70s and early 80s. The others, probably not to much, but still it's good to post the whole 45. You kind of wonder what the record was made for...for giveaways? For customers of the chocolate company? Makes you wonder. Just still kind of fun to find this, as it was part of my childhood....that dang Smarties Jingle. Smarties are still around. They seem to be a canadian thing, as anyone outside of the country will likely not know about them. In any event, as Canada is a bi lingual country, enough the jingles, in both English and French.

  1. Wow thanks man!! As a record-digging hiphop producer, I am always looking for more and more obscure sample sources.. this has to be one of the dustiest that I've found. I haven't listened to them yet but I just KNOW that there are going to be gems here!!

    Didn't want to just download and run without dropping a note of appreciation for all your hard work. I've bookmarked your blog and I'll certainly be back for more as it comes, and if I do anything dope with any of the material I've found here, I'll drop you a line and let you hear it!

    Thanks again!

  3. Thanks for dropping by ace and andrew. who knows, you might find something here yet.

    We don't own the copyright on this stuff, but until someone tells me to take it down, and I don't think lawyers know if a lot of this stuff is still copyrighted, it will stay up. If you sample it, you can sort it own with the lawyers, I don't have the money...LOL!

  4. I was just wondering why the front cover was stamped Oct 1987 (it's on the top right-hand corner of the English side).

  5. That was my old record library coding system and the date I actually acquired it.
