Fuz, I think I know the one you mean - think I've passed on it twice more fool me (always in the middle ground type price, humming and hawing). It was from yourself I got the Bill Garden Set LP, love Sexy Susan's Line
"Good afternoon, Eine. I trust the sight of the Scottish private press collectors refreshes you."
I hope not. That would make me the Jimmy Savile of the record racks.
Regarding the Bill Garden grail (hushed tones) is it the one with the blue cover? Live somewhere or other?
Ooh - maybe more than one
Scratch that - it's the one with Wade in the Water
Are we talking about the turquoise one? The one with the cowbell break in the middle of 'Funkin' on Burns Night'?

"You don't want to kill the cash donkey"
I'm so confused!
Everyone tear down your own little wall
That keeps you from being a part of it all
Because you've got to be one with the one and all
You've just got to be close to it all
I found a Scottish private press a few years back. It was very good and had a cover of 'Wade in the Water' on it. I really liked but was persuaded to trade it away for a shiny thing from Italy (which is where this copy now resides). As I said above I was under the mistaken impression that I'd find another one...I haven't. As I let the record it go it became dead to me and I forgot the artist and title pretty quickly. Myself and Fuz then discussed this record and it's been driving him mad as I can't remember who it's by or what it's called. We think that another Glasgow based board member has a copy but this has yet to be confirmed and Stephen seems to know what we are looking for too.
That's about the size of it.
I'd like a copy too though
First Chazza buys of the year. A fiver spent but more than happy with some Ellington from 1968 and a VV Brit Sesh Classic. :
Oh and treated myself to a punt. I don't usually buy into tribute albums or things like this but I like Frank Black and he features heavily on this remastered Lee Hazlewood classic. Apparently this was the first in a series but I don't see anymore that have been released, maybe a British version called 'Charity Shop Punts' would be cool, re-imaginings of 'Lowery Organ Fever' and 'With Compliments' or maybe not. :

On my doormat yesterday, found on Tradera (eBay in Sweden). With the Swedish picture sleeve used in the video, and condition beyond expectations. For a moment I thought I'd gotten one of those replicas of raers you see, but it would be odd that they would make replicas of a Swedish press. Next, someone will tell me they know of replicas of this...
Paid a bit more than I hoped for, but still under my conservative max bid that I made several hours before it ended. Can't be bothered with sniping, I've found it's just as well to make conservative bids ahead and take my chances, bracing myself from checking until it's over. Still get some good stuff, records aren't drying up it seems.
I really need to check out this group more, I have another 45 by them, Morning Sun, which is almost equally as good.
"This is Modpowerpopsouljunkierock´n´roll so stop post shit like Jethro Tull, Pink Floyd, Grace Jones , Led Zeppelin and some other boring blues stuff, that kind of music don´t belong in this group, if I´ll ever see shit like that posted in this group again that person will be banned from this group forever!!!!"
Nite People are great. Check out their version of "Summertime Blues' and the much cheaper 'Funky Hoe' which can be had on the flip of a Banana Bunch euro 45.
Lurgy is slowly subsiding although not so for the wife but I dragged her into town anyway. No thundersnow just drizzle and damp but did pick up a couple of records. A guy older than me asking the attendant in Relate for 'vinyls' (insert fingernails down a blackboard emoji here) eyed me with bewilderment as I bought this, the fool. :
and some Nu Jazz stylings from Oxfam. :
