    Default Purging the surplus. Otherwise known as FREEBIES!!

    The recent generosity of other board members, along with the purging thread, has helped me work through some of my clutter and put together another batch of freebies.

    Usual Ben rules apply (check one of his freebie threads if you're not sure). Talking of Ben, I've got a record already put by for you mate so let me know if there's anything else here you want to add.

    Some have sleeve issues and I haven't checked the vinyl yet but I won't send anything out that's wrecked. Probably just need a good clean for most of them.

    I didn't know much Judy Collins until last year, but 'Since You Asked' on Wildflowers is a particular favourite. And if you slow the LP down, it sounds like Tim Buckley!

    her early 60s stuff is alright folk revival, but she moved away from folk over the years, got a bit dull/bland mostly IMO. Quite a big seller though, and she had success popularising stuff like Fairport Convention - "Who Knows Where the Time Goes" etc.

    that LP has hovered around "purge" status, but the 6 minute "Pretty Polly" (with Stephen Stills, Van Dyke Parks, etc in the band) makes it a keeper

    I also like that LP and would recommend it to anyone

    Someone should grab that supremely incompetent Surfsiders record!!! Full of delightful bad versions to make your partner think 'the records' have truly sent you into incomprehsible batshit land.

    By the way, Melter, though I'm in Japan, I don't need you to send the LPs here. I'll pick them up from my parents' house when I go to the UK soon. Thanks

    Me too, though I'm in Holland, I also have a UK address.
    It feels greedy, but if no-one is going to take that Bohannon LP, I'd like that too, please.
    I assume this doesn't affect postage?
    Oh, and Fly Me To Brazil too. I'm shameless.

    The original French theme is very different to the English dubbed Ulysses 31 in case you weren't aware
