    He does the Otley boot. I've had some good bits from him...

    As for the Corn Exchange fair, I usually find it pretty dull. Worth it for the bakery below though.

    The Corn Exchange is a fantastic building - pity the council sucked the life out of it when they turfed all the traders out in an attempt to make it an upmarket foodie paradise. Something they're also planning to do with the market, apparently!!

    THe CE's architect, Cuthbert Brodrick, built some quality edifices - Leeds Town Hall, Scarborough Grand Hotel - and never completed them on time or on budget. A perfectionist who'd get laughed out of town these days...

    Yeah ,bought loads off of him over the years. He once sold me a huge box of books for 10p. As I was weaving my way back to my mates stall I sold Dickie Birds autobiography en route for a quid. The Pipe would have been proud of me.

    I like a nice Broderick building - they certainly define the city centre.

    Jim, Zurich Insurance were the guilty party who turfed out all the independent traders rather than LCC. Sacrificed the livelihoods of hundreds to up their own profit margins.
    If the independent reports recommendations are accepted by the Council (on Friday)large tracts of that area of the city will be sold off to developers
    As someone pointedly remarked to me they may as well erect a fence round the city centre to keep out the residents of Gipton and Belle Isle etc.

    went to Huddersfield last Sat -

    update - 'Wall of sound has now ceased trading-the owner sold it off'

    vinyl tap has now taken over the entire premises.

    They seem to be selling off wall of sounds stock upstairs but (not much drop in prices on the new stock/reissues).

    basement is still the same.

    Here are some photos from a quick dig around Delhi yesterday afternoon...

    The first place is on Chandni Chowk and was a new one on me. I'm guessing from some of the records I found that it has not been picked over. Boney..? Decent blokes running it and prices were 200 - 500 rupees each. Marvellous. Fill yer boots.





    ... found some good records in here and in minty condition too (which is pretty bloody amazing). Spent over an hour going through the shelves, including those in the back room - that also doubled up as the lav (note DIY bidet).



    ... right, it's a five minute walk from Chandni Chowk to Meena Bazar...









    ... next place in the Shah Music Centre. Dead easy to find, can you see the sign..?







    ... Didn't buy anything off old man Shah, his prices are crazy. Wanted 8000 rupees for some LP's. Each. Jeezo. This is the third time I've met him and the experience just gets worse each time. Unfortunately he does have the most amazing records for sale - and multiple copies of each.



    ... and my finds..! All wrapped up and ready for home. Will post up when I get back and have cleaned them etc. There are around 20 bits in total within those two parcels, including a couple of EP's. There's a mint copy of Shalimar (2nd issue, no flap sleeve) plus the elusive and brilliant Fifty Fifty OST. Two remarkable mint-up opportunities that had to be taken.

    If you're looking for a pristine copy then this isn't the one for you. The vinyl looks like someone has polished their brickwork with it and the label has been ruined by some fool with a pen.

    Off to the New Gramophone House on Friday - believe it or not, it wasn't open on Sunday - the busiest shopping day of the week for Indians..!

    Great pics Si - nver been to Indian but always wanted to go
    Can't see Mrs E being too happy to be taken to see some of the sites you've photographed

    Seriously, how do you find anything
    Especially the toilet/record store - call me strange but I'd need to give my hands a really good wash after digging in there (cue joke about digging in places that were real toilets etc)

    My hands were covered in dirt and dust when I'd finished and needed a damn good wash; but then again they always are - inc places in Europe and the US...

    The owner usually gets you a bowl of water and you drip dry in the street. Sorted.

    Great pics Sie! I look forwardc to hearing about your finds.

    That toilet photo reminds me when I did a house call to an ex-northern soulie turned smack head. Major Trainspotting vibes!
    it's OK to head out for wonderful, but on your way to wonderful, you're gonna have to pass through all right. When you get to all right,
    take a good look around and get used to it, because that may be as far as you're gonna go.

    In the first location Sie the place looks like heaven to me, dirty/dusty or not. This is what up to date tetanus jabs are for. All my digs have been in shops and not in particulaly interesting locations.

    That toilet photo is unbelieveable! I've been in some dirty, smelly, insect or rodent infested spots but thats the worst I've ever seen.

    BTW, whenever I remember them I try to bring those lemon-scented wetwipe things in little sachets, what airlines used to call "refreshing towelettes" back in the days of relatively civilized air travel. Very handy for cleaning grimey hands after going through something like that.

    This sort of thing is a good alternative, as long as you're not flying with hand luggage only.


    ...And you call that a work trip, Sie? I look forward to seeing the contents of those parcels.
    You freeking scientologists are all the same, quible, dribble and then demand ice creams. Ohhhhhhhhhhh.

    Nope, I call it a Sunday afternoon, you cheeky wotsit.

    Although I must admit, if I get my toe down I should be able to get finished for Friday lunchtime and get the afternoon off. Got to hit up that one last spot before I fly home...

    New contender for the dirtiest record shop in Japan (Kanto League, Division III). Grubbiness factor enhanced by the stacks of '80s scat porno VHS tapes by the entrance (ooh err missus). Note the bundles of 45s in old rice bags ... nice touch, though somewhat cockroach-friendly come the summertime, I fear.
