Flashlite #791 – Vinyl Junkyard 19: Džuboks flexies

Džuboks flexies

In our Vinyl Junkyard special series, we feature some old scratchy records, all found somewhere cheap collecting dust in a bargain bin. Today we feature Džuboks flexies. Džuboks was a monthly entertainment magazine focusing on rock and pop music that featured a 6″ flexi record inserted inside in an envelope. There was 16 flexies total between 1967 and 1968. Those were incredibly important in Yugoslavia with circulation cca hundred thousands and each contained contemporary hit from the US and UK rock and pop charts of the moment. They were very well done, fully licensed and they still sound great and most songs are truly some of the greatest written in that period. They were pressed by Jugoton and the publisher used the records to advertise their normal vinyl releases on 7″ and 12″ records. Influence on the local readership and scene in Yugoslavia was immeasurable. To fill up the rest of the hour, I included three greatest Yugo rock originals from that period and I’m closing with two Polish postcard records. My Džuboks flexies are in great condition and my Polish postcards are were heavily damaged. Yet all are extremely charming and I’m playing them directly from the sources.
