Re: Your latest music purchases

I know what my next purchases are going to be.

Nucleus - Jazz rock with a hint of funk. I will probably hoover up their output from the 70's :dance:

Re: Your latest music purchases

I don't really bother looking for music in charity shops anymore. Gone are the days of a bargain and the bins are full of Max Bygraves. Leo Sayer and Cliff Richard. Some of the prices in the second hand record shop were taking the piss I thought and some of the grading a little on the optimistic sid...

Had lunch at the Fish Box, with a gloriuos view. We went Thursday as well. Might have seen you. It's a lovely view fr...

Re: Holidays....yay

Just spent a week in a cottage at Reighton near Filey. Highly exotic. Only rained yesterday :dance: Avoided dirty people as much as possible, took our own food every day when we went out. Got some vinyl in Scarborough. Went as far North as Robin Hood's Bay - I love that place.

Not seen these cute little things before. Never heard of Davone Audio before either. Typical Scandinavian design.

Re: Which of these lps (for the most part).......

Audiofools , hung-up on systems, are - the same as religious people - music-ignorant. Their world is AC/DC,Elton John, Paul McCartney and whatever current fad they are being FED. They have no desire to search for music on their own. Elton John is total cack. The other two are OK apart from Frog cho...
