    Don't know if anyone's still after getting flexis pressed, but have just seen that this is where the recent DJ Food flexis were done...

        I picked up a load that I'd never seen before a couple of months ago, along with some Lyntone promotional stuff from the 60's.

        Mostly nonsense though, of course!
        We know when a mate buys it for you too.

            picked up a nice one this morning - worth it for the sleeve alone
            released in 1976 (obviously!)

                  The mum looks stoned in the first pic and the father looks like he's holding in a fart in the second.

                      picked up a nice flexi today issued by Cherry B (a kind of sickly sweet red brandy much beloved by ladies of the day)
                      Issued in 1961 and complete with 5 competition inserts, curiously unused, I have uploaded it for you to hear and consider
                      for yourself which are the best singers out of the 5 on offer. Of course it may have just been a cheap ruse
                      for the Britvic company to discover the most popular choice and then use that in an advert.

                        I didn't find material about in vg+
                        For me it was a great magazine. I have more than 60 different (from 1964 to 1988) and I love them.
                        From Wiki:
                        Krugozor (Russian: Кругозор) was a musical magazine with flexi-discs issued in the Soviet Union by Melodiya.
                        Official site (Sorry in Rusian):
                        You can hear most of the music here
                        You can find absolutely great music - ethnic, jazz, rock, folk, Lenin's voice, poetry etc. In every Krugozor you have 6 (2 - sided) flexi
                        Few examples (I have more than 70) The most wanted are with Pink Floyd, John Lennon, Queen, but the most interest are with soviet bands

                          I spent the day in London with a book publishers called Four Corners who want to put a book out of my flexi-discs
                          with Jonny Trunk and DJ Food. It will no doubt be beautifully illustrated as they are very thoughtful and knowledgeable
                          about these things, it was a pleasure to be asked to contribute to such a thing alongside respected, musically admired folks.
