I'll be happy to head to the capital soon but looks like we may have just found a house so fingers x it doesn't stop me digging!
    Tell us about the jazz collection haul...

    Or alternatively "They're so bad they were played once and never touched again, until the owner passed on and they were taken to the auction you bought them at" I have one of these, I bought it (very cheaply) because I coud not believe just how brand spanking new it looked for an old object, so there may be a theme here!!!

    Nice job on the promotion, seems like you're settling in well... when are you venturing over to Edinburgh?

    The local Dundee Courier newspaper have done a feature on my record collecting habits today, it's on their site with a video of me waffling on the hoof with the article itself to be published soon, possibly tomorrow.

    High Street, Edinburgh. This started life in St Mary's Street round the corner, but I don't remember it from then. The High Street shop sold new stock on the ground floor, and had a huge supply of...

    I can't recall if I've ever seen this before. Phil Seymour was in 20/20 and was half of the Dwight Twilley Band. Besides his involvement in seminal power pop groups, he had an impressive collection of stripey t-shirts and matching wallpaper.

    First record fair here since the Corona pandemic shut everything down. Just 10 stalls (inevitably 2 I skipped completely for the usual reasons) so it was over too soon but hugely enjoyable.

    Scrap copper is £2.06 a pound at present. You should have offered him 50p the lot.

    Here we have the "dollar bins" I have mentioned on and off over the last few years. Although there is the occasional more expensive record. One of my batch today was $4.

    In the room behind the window there are the remnants of a collection of big game animal stuffed heads. There are still 7 or 8. Tell me if you would like me to acquire on your behalf.

    Further into the shop there is a larger vinyl display. Reissues are becoming a larger section of the stock. And the second hand furniture and mantiques that were a staple are becoming scarcer.

    Look carefully and you can see a 'Cliff goes East ' which I briefly considered for its Hawkshaw involvement.

    No records (unsurprisingly) but my other half shelled out 30NZD for a very nice necklace.

    A woman with a guitar provided live music too.
    If you go anywhere near Oamaru go and see my old friend Michael O'Brien, the bookbinder, and demand some whisky.
