    You see the high price I had to pay to get that shot of the guy. I hope VG+ appreciates the effort I went to but must ultimately suffer the same arse display.

    I would like to think the woman is teaching the child which are the James Last LP's to grip.

    there was i, thinking «russell hobbs» would be cheesy late 70s aor soft greatness and that i could now post cool youtube clips and tell everybody to better grip that shit next time instead of taking pictures and talk nonsense on a forum afterwards. but then google tells me it's a household appliance manufacturer.

    the woman in the red coat is obviously training her curly haired child in junior grippage, and late morning is ideal to avoid the early bird psychopaths

    I think their "on your marks" squat is far more dignified than the bloke above´s "get set" arse display. A VPL is inexcusable in a sheer dress, let alone a pair of drab chinos.

    Well, there is that aspect I suppose. So I guess record hunting should be enjoyable and fun? That's where I'm going wrong then.

    Probably even better for 78's, or perhaps too snug.

    Every fortnight I'm at the market from 7.30am as the best record dealer sells fortnightly and then compete with a bunch of fellow collectors, dealers, grippers to get first dibs on the new arrivals. The alternative Saturdays I head down there around around 10am with little hope of finding anything on the assumption anything that might have been worthy is gone, even a good easy LP would have been picked up by that point. 99.9% of the time this happens. So I'm always intrigued by the number of people looking through the skip sellers record boxes at this late hour. Middle aged folks who I never see at the dealers stalls, presumably not wanting to pay £5 for a 70's copy of a classic rock record. So what exactly are they looking for in these boxes of charity shop style crud. Have they read online that Beatles records are worth money or are they looking for that replacement copy of No Jacket Required they ruined in the 80's?

    Ironic considering the story Julian Cope told about Jim Kerr boasting that he's frisbee'd his copy of The Faust Tapes off a tower block in Glasgow.

    All the copies should be like this, free up the charity shops a bit.

    You know the vinyl revival is peaking when you come across record frisbees in the park. This kicked off a kind of Proustian reverie where I deeply remembered and rexperienced the parks, streets and record frisbees of my youth. I think.
