A quick sale I know nothing about, but is clearly a part of Brownhills history – a vinyl album with a very hand-produced looking cover, called ‘Devils and the Angels’ by Brownhills Comprehensive School has popped up on eBay with some great images so the sleeve liner notes can be read.
The long play 12 inch vinyl LP appears to be the soundtrack to some kind of musical and dates from 1978, but apart from that, I’m at a bit of a loss. The character names seem to coincide with a Leon Garfield book called ‘Smith’, and he also wrote a story called ‘Devil in the Fog’, so maybe there’s a link.
Plenty of names listed though and I’m sure most must have been local kids, and I’m sure someone can help out there. Like the Brownhills Comprehensive Awards Day program from 1988, I think this might prove popular…
If you’d like to buy this odd little piece of Brownhills history, seller Ocean_Amazon has it up for the princely sum of £2.50 with £3.50 p&p here.
If you know anything about this record, the performance it recorded, or any of the folk listed, please do get in tough. Comment here or mail me: BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com. Cheers.
