    I don't have to smuggle anything, to be honest. My partner doesn't mind me buying records as long as I chuck her something she likes once in a while. I just like the cloak and dagger challenge of getting records into the house without detection.
    I doubt Benjamin and his Jericho Sounds would interest her, though. I was fiddling with the radio in her new car the other week and she said "There will be NO latin rhythms in this car."

    I saw a seagull eating a dead rat when out for a dig the other day, I'll spare you the photos and video of this gnarly scene.

    Still got this Puerto Rican Xtian record in the boot, now I remember.

    Don't know if this in any way mimics the original cover, and it doesn't reach the heights of the previously posted one...

    In truth my wife doesn't mind. We live in a big old 3-storey house with plenty of room.
    It's me. I'm appalled at my own ability to rationalise just about any vinyl purchase.
    Except jazz records, obviously - I'm not insane.

    And it was only 50 cents...
    No stop no no no!!!

    I HAVE to stop buying records just because I like the cover.

    Came across this lovely hand-drawn cover today. It's completely home made, including the sleeve itself and the centre hole on the back:

    According to discogs, this single never had a picture sleeve.

    Love that hand-drawn Polydor logo!

    I still probably buy too many records but I've managed to cure myself of giving in to every impulse, so I let this one go.

    Excellent. I needed a good laugh; I've spent most of the day clearing the garage out.

    Friday saw a "Save the children" book sale at the University of Western Australia. Vinyl generally features too, though on a far smaller scale.

    I reminded myself that for him it is a living, whereas for me it is a hobby.

    I ended up with a CD comp of John Surman's ECM recordings ($2).

    Entrance to the hall was at the bottom of the clock tower (see the picture). I took the photo as I was leaving. The queue went around the corner and into the distance.
