    Good work that man

    I don't think I've visited 43 charities in all my CSC's put together!

    I'm having a listen on youtube parts of it are right up my street with that early jazz rock sound and proggy little bridges here and there but it seems a bit incoherent in places. I can see how a quick needle drop might make Willy think it wasn't worth going back as it changes styles a few times over the course of the record. Cracking find though. I might take a punt on a copy if I see one online as it seems relatively cheap.

    Crikey I'd have to do a tour of 7 or 8 towns to hit near 43! It's so dead around here as regards restocking and I'm without wheels at the moment anyway but I think I'd be full on Jim Revvesed out by the end of it. Great going, I hit a nice Bob Marley motherlode a few years ago when a woman was selling off her brothers vinyl otherwise I don't think I'd own any. What is that 'Dada' all about, prog, southern, country, dixieland?

    Try the track She Walks Away. I enjoyed it so much I put it on a vg+ mix.

    Thanks for leaving it I really didn't need it and it was a whopping £1.99. Charmed by the shopkeeper was I.

    Yay! That's what charity shop vinyl buying should be all about. Taking chances and being pleasantly surprised. Obviously having low expectations helps too

    It's the first one due on the deck when I get home. I should point out that last night's needle drop was all of about 5 seconds. The kettle boiled quicker than expected so I filled my hot water bottle and cold-footed it to bed.

    Glad to see you didn't make it to a couple of my favourites (wipes sweat from brow).

    43 is a good effort!! If I'd had more time I could have got up to about 32 in greater Dundee but missed out a couple of coastal towns just outside. Always impressed when folk manage to get 'backstage' so to say. I've been in the basement of a charity shop in Linlithgow which was interesting - loads of vinyl just sitting there. Got a few bits but would love to see what other shops are sitting on

    43? Malmö is twice the size of Brighton and I can only think of about 10. We are not very charitable it seems.
    But we have about as many record shops.

    That looks like a reasonable haul. I don't know whether it stacks up from a CBA point of view. But you actually got some usable vinyl out of that excursion - I hardly bother with the chazzers here nowadays.

    Are we to infer that Brighton has a plenty of prosperous people who can keep the chazzers stocked? Or is it demand driven (poor locals) - with the stock coming from outside? Or a bit of both?
