It all looked very bad on Friday. Fire on the Utrecht train station. So I tough that would ruin my plans for the weekend. Got a call on Saturday from a friend at 5 o'clock telling me trains will ride and the track was partly taken over by buses. So I went to the train station at 7 o'clock and arrived at 9 o'clock in Utrecht. I can tell there where not much people at opening.
Just as last year, I was only after records that are on my want list. I hate to go trough all the euro bins on Utrecht to come home and find out you have bought a lot of rubbish records. Had a few good records which I sold at the fair to some Japanese sellers that made life a bit easier at the fair ...
Met some nice board members and left early not knowing how late I would be home again.
No recent reissues where harmed by only buying OG's
