Raided the bargain bin at my local vinyl shop:

In Hearing Of Atomic Rooster

Spinal Tap-esque songs about being trapped inside some terrible metaphor, salvaged by an incredible production (non-more Zep!) and some tasty keyboard noodling by Mr. Vincent Crane.

Live - Al Di Meola

He tortures his guitar in equal measure to what he inflicts on the listener.

The Reprise Years - Frank Sinatra box set.

Some ropey live recordings nestle alongside exemplary studio cuts.

Still, that's all worth £3 of anybody's money.

And one that got away: a decent condition mono Blonde On Blonde. Not in the £1 bin obviously, but apparently it's new owner left the shop as I strolled in. Next time, next time.

Fairport Convention - `Liege and Lief` Cost me a bit but a very nice original copy.

Standout track - Difficult to choose from an album that`s been voted best Folk album of all time, but I`ll go for `Crazy Man Michael`

Michael he whistles the simplest of tunes And asks of the wild woods their pardon

For his true love is flown into every flower grown And he must be keeper of the garden

I have a shocking confession to make. I haven't been listening to records but what I have been doing is even more shocking, dear readers. I caught Lana Del Ray at Glastonbury and I was ahem smitten. Was it that rather lovely dress? Of course it wasn't: I loved the songs and her much-maligned voice and the power of the band. I erm bought 'Ultraviolence' and told the woman at the checkout it was for my daughter. I think it's a great record and I find her a bit interesting. I'm sorry to have shocked you.

I have an ongoing semi-serious argument with a record dealer about this: it's a band we both love but we disagree on the best Spirit record. I prefer 'The Family That Plays Together,' but I like 'Sardonicus' too. Damn it, I love all of their records. Great band.

For some long forgotten reason my copy of this is an American import on the Virgin Venture label rather than Factory :? , regardless, it sounds wonderful.

Metallica - Master Of Puppets, bought 27 years ago with the money I earned from a Saturday job in the butchers. Still sounds effing marvellous, more so on the new deck/cartridge. The bass is superb.

"Listen damn it, we will win!" :rockout:
