    Default Freebies from the Easter Benny

    And not a chocolate egg in sight!


    As promised, inspired by the recent purging thread and the overall spirit of ‘cleansing’ that pervades the forum at the moment, here’s a load of free stuff that those who aren’t purging can grab, should they so desire.

    I think everyone’s got a sense of the ‘rules’ such as they are:

    • 50 post minimum (clears out the lurkers, leaving them to take the piss in the BIN section instead)
    • Make your dibbses clear within the thread so that folk can keep up with what’s gone (simultaneous dibbses can be sorted out amongst yourselves)
    • You’re just paying for your postage, which in the UK is £2.90 for a second class package up to 2kg, so you can get around 6LPs for £3. (I've got plenty of recycled mailers to use)
    • I’ll PM folk when the dust has settled and sort out the Paypal niceties.

    Can’t think of owt else, that’s plenty of protocol right there anyway.


    Get involved. I'm off to watch this on repeat: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TNSbRj8sKAs


    Right, let’s kick off with some drums and breaks type business:




    As ever, it’s time to unleash the canon fodder:














    Ladies:





    Themes and stuff:





    International Zone Coasters:

    NB – Obviously, the Oriental Brothers sleeve is banjaxed, but the vinyl is fine.




    Random:








    And the reading matter that was recently flagged up:

    Cool. Thanks to all who have got involved.

    I'll sort all the packages and PMs tonight. So there's still a few hours left if anyone wants to add owt to their package (keeping in mind that there's 2kg to play with for UK folks).

    That first Hot Chocolate LP is well worth hearing, obviously influenced by current US soul, especially Curtis Mayfield, and is probably well known hereabouts already, but just in case anyone hasn't given it a chance...

    If nobody wants Blue Mink- and I'm sure I've not seen it mentioned- then I would be delighted to nab it as well as my others. I thank you.

    Cheers Ben arrived today thanks for the extra too I wondered what the deal with that Red Arrows record was then noticed the Brit Sesh involvement on the back, interesting. Top man as usual!

    Despite all the chuff that comes and goes in and out of this house on a regular basis there is a VG friendly pile that's building up for a future freebie installment. Teaser: TOTP album with 70's 'cheesecake' calendar poster insert intact/unused that my wife wont let me put on the wall.

    I too am replete. Spinning 'The Oriental Brothers' this morning and it's in super condition. Enjoy that upmarket soft drink if you get one.
