    Good stuff.

    I've been in that Mind one a few times and the guy there was constantly referring to book prices like they were gospel. Found one good thing once though, trying to remember it.....nope, can't. They seemed to consistently get lots of interestingish decent pound LPs in and then try to get a fiver for them - and then wonder why they weren't selling anything.

    I think that Boulders record might very likely be right up there as one of the most frequent hopeful to hopes dashed record purchases amongst VG-plussers - I remember going through the exact same routine with it once.

    The Roy Wood does have this weird little number:

    good to see crouch end turning up in the csc. i get down there about 3 or 4 times a year and the charity shops are usually rewarding (more so than my locals anyway) although admittedly they're a bit pricey.

    and flashback is excellent.

    Absolutely - his post-Beatles melodies are still horrendously catchy but also nicely off-kilter.

    Good work!
    Seconded on the Roy Wood. His singles are always worth picking up for the amazing B sides - weird instrumentals and exploito/pastiches - but that Boulders Lp was just toss.

    I'd have got the David Garrick - I got the Pye 1st edition - sort of early David Bowie meets Ray Davies but cheesier (in fact there is a good cover of 'Dandy' on it) and worth having for the parpy hit 'Dear mrs Applebee'!

    That's an LP I've grown to like more as the years have rolled by, having not been very keen on it when it came out (but there again, I was quite young at the time). Coming Up may be too obvious but it's a cracking song, plus there's the slight but nice synthy instrumentals. Also On The Way is a great compressed blues.

    Part 2 eagerly awaited. A valiant effort on the tie, but with the untucked shirt the whole ensemble does have more than a whiff of Kaiser Chiefs about it. Shame Boulders didn't hit the spot, it's good enough for me but it should be noted that a green Harvest label is no guarantee of quality...

    A smashing read so far Naga...

    In terms of Melanie, this is my favourite of hers. Another tip if you don't know it is the RPM soundtrack. Its got some of here stuff on but its worth picking up for this monster from Barry de Vorzon and Perry Botkin.

    As for McCartney II, I agree with you on Darkroom and would also add Temporary Secretary (and Check My Machine as a b-side on a single from the LP).

    Truth is I'm rather partial to the Arse but I couldn't resist.

    No head punches - my face is my fortune!
