Hi CharlieCharlie Jefferson said:Some glorious sounds there Jim, from the ones I'm familiar with.
Here's mine, last night and this morning:
Lousy Sylvianbriar - Of Montreal
Basement Tapes - Bob & The Band
(yes, I shelled out £60!!!!)
The Last Waltz - Bob & The Band bits
Love & Theft - Bob
Time Out Of Mind - Bob
And selections from the recent Beatles Mono box. I spotted a B-stock copy online and took a gamble. Box slightly crushed on one corner, all vinyl in perfect nick.
Blunderbuss & Lazeretto - Jack White
Rocket Man - Kate Bush
Small Group Recordings - Wes Montgomery/Jimmy Smith
I thought you'd buy the Bob ( and The Beatles box, I see!) on vinyl and then I got to figurin' about buying records and I came to a terrible conclusion: it's not real money when I buy records or it's a different sort of money to the money I spend on everything else. Let's take that £60 figure; if it was spent on food shopping, I'd be agonising and angry about having spent so much, telling myself I'm going to ALDI next time etc. £60 on records? No problems: I want that record, it's only money! Do you recognise yourself?!! Well, that's the way it is for me and, although I don't have anything like the money coming in that i did when I was working, I still do it. My old motto, 'Buy now, starve later' is atually becoming a reality! It's a dreadful addiction: quit while you're still able to afford food!
All the best.
