    Dunno why I bothered really...

      hehe, yeah, just kidding mate!

      Its was awesome - so much vinyl in that country! Just wish i had a bit more baggage allowance! Still I managed to get a stuffed record bag onto the plane with no worries. Brought back around 50 's and 30 's.

      Did you make it out to Rics when you where there?

        Yeah he had a half priced sale on, pulled about 50 LP's from there alone. Post up your finds then.....

        Did you hook up with any of the Canadian diggers?

          I'll post up a list soon as I get a mo'.

          I spent a whole day round Rics and the surrounding area - found another place heaving with vinyl just round the corner owned by the ex Canadian rugby coach!

          I hooked up with a load of diggers and dealers as there was a record show on whilst I was in Toronto. Met some really friendly guys there and some heavy diggers! Picked up lots of nice stuff, nothing too rare just a lot of stuff I've been after for a while and some nice discoveries too.
