Stumbled upon a bag of records..

So, a week ago, I was walking around the city and stumbled upon this bag of records in an alley near my apartment. I figured they were somebody's and let them be. A week later they are still there unclaimed so I took them saving them from being rendered useless. They look to be quite worthlePess...among them is:

-Sacred Songs by the Northlanders of Sweden
-Strauss Waltzes - The Melachrino Orchestra - Conducted by George Melachrino
-101 Strings: Play American Waltzes
-Mantovano: Film Encores: Volume 1
-Till the End of Time
-Wayne King in Hi-Fi
-Johnny Kay sings SEASON'S Greetings
-Eric Rogers Chorale and Orchestra: Glory of Christmas
-Roger Wiliams: Plays the Wonderful Music of The Masters
-Melachrino Orchestra: PLays Medleys From: Call Me Madam..
-Rodgers and Hammerstein's: Saturday Matinee for Children
-Happy Birthday: 27 Songs for Fun and Frolic
-The Hyms We Love: The Nation's Favorite Hymns
-The Little Drummer Boy: Henry Snow Singers
-Stardust: International Pop Orchestra: 110 Musicians
-Peter Cottontail
-Rodgers and Hammerstein: South Pacific
-Mantovanai: Strauss Waltzes
-Music of Duke Ellington: Sophisticated Lady
-Kilima Hawaiians: Hawaiian War Chants
-Frankie Yankovic: Favorite Polkas
-Nina Simone: Let It All Out

Could I possibly make any money on them off e-bay? They're all old-fashioned records..

What a selection!

I seriously doubt ther're worth much. I'm always seeing boxes of records like these at flea markets.

I'd listen to them first. You might find something you really like.

I dunno, corny as the film was, I always kinda liked the songs from South Pacific. What kinda stuff is on the "Rodgers and Hammerstein's: Saturday Matinee for Children" LP?

"Happy talk, keep talking happy talk
Talk about things you like to do
You got to have a dream, if you don't have a dream
How you gonna have a dream come true?
Talk about the moon floating in the sky
Looking at a lily on the lake
Talk about a bird learning how to fly
Making all the music he can make!
Happy talk, keep talking happy talk
Talk about things you like to do
You got to have a dream, if you don't have a dream
How you come not have a dream come true?
Talk about the sparrow looking like a toy
Picking through the broaches of a tree
Talk about the girl, talk about the boy
Counting all the ripples on the sea
Happy talk, keep talking happy talk
Talk about things you like to do
You got to have a dream, if you don't have a dream
How you come not have a dream come true?
Talk about the boy saying to the girl
Golly, baby, I'm a lucky cuss
Talk about the girl saying to the boy
You an' me is lucky to be us
Happy talk, keep talking happy talk
Talk about things you like to do
You got to have a dream, if you don't have a dream
How you come not have a dream come true?
If you don't talk happy, and you never have dream
Then you'll never have a dream come true!
It's good idea, you like? Ah ah ah!"
