    grrr, you bastard etc etc.

    anyway, the Tom Clay is good. the title track was a fairly big Motown hit in the US i think - he was a radio deejay by the way. didn't realise there was a whole LP of that stuff...

                Can't quite remember exactly what I paid for the Silhouettes lp as I got it around 8 weeks ago before I went on my hols. Think it was around $60 which I was well pleased with as I had been trying to get an original for yonks.

                      Shit comes around though don't it !? Like that Ananda Shankar & stuff, they're sought after bits but when you're blessed on that particular day they land in yer lap from faraway shores
