    Well, it's only the 19th ...

    Very happy to find this ...

    Originally bought the Kleenex EP when I was 6 years old.

    Our charity shops opened again this week but it's uncertain for how long. I made sure to get my foot in before they have to close again.

    It looks like somebody brought in their whole Max Greger collection... took some with me and left some there.

        Since you brought Max Greger up, here's his masterful take on Time Is Tight. Oh for a Lemon Ford Capri to drive round town to this:

            "Greger In The Night" has "Big Train".

            "Starshine Sunshine" is probably the best Greger LP I've found (Time Is Tight is on that, and it's pretty solid as a whole), but his stuff doesn't turn up here very often

                Agreed on the "Sunshine Starshine" found it once never ever seen it again.

                  One of year of being locked up and I've been keeping myself busy despite everything. The money I am serving on train fare appears to be going towards records which is some consolation in these odd times and gives the postman something to do.

                  The soundtrack for Androcles and the Lion - a 1967 US TV musical adaptation of the Shaw play. A pet project of Richard Rodgers, it starred Norman Wisdom as Androcles and Noël Coward as Caesar. Patricia Routledge also pops up as Megaera.

                    Bertrand Russell doesn’t look happy. Perhaps he foresaw Tom O’Connor’s pullover.

                      I couldn't post these earlier this month as my desktop PC has had issues.

                      The Bali/ Ceylon/ Pakistan record is from the new local shop that I have mentioned. The same shop where there is a copy of the Baker Street Philharmonic LP for $40.

                      The Segovia was a gift from a shopkeeper. I don't know what prompted that.

                      I've toyed with idea of a Maori vocal themed Xmas swap CD. Maybe this year?

                          Have you tried, with your ersatz psych, what the chap on Discogs suggests?

                            It turns out that playing an lp at 45 is a bit much for turntable.

                              The solution, of course, is to do a rip using Audacity and speed it up. I chose the track "Vibrations".

                              I can see what he means. A lot of the track bears the treatment pretty well. Inevitably though there were bits that didn't work - there was no missing that it was sped up.

                              The way forward here is to slow it way down. Slow it waaaaay down. Get that demented early 60s horror vibe. Yes siree Bob.
