    It was clear from picking them up that there was no vinyl but I couldn't resist the fantastic designs. A bit of Googling when I got home explained all.

    The four I got all have the card inside saying 'I bought this album....'

    I got my copy of "On The Shore" in 1984 (!) - found in the middle of a box full of mint classical LPs in a charity shop. Wasn't my cup'o'tea back then (I was far too busy coveting the first two March Violets 45s) but 30 years on...I kinda like it...

    I found one of the Tree LP's at the carboot about 8 years back. Unfortunately a dealer found it before me so he wanted £70. Not a bad price in hindsight but always harder to hand over proper money when you know he's just paid 50p. I would happily pay that now of course.

    Those Trees albums seem to pop up, on the net at least, with some regularity. Anyone know what the pressing numbers were like?

    Great cover on that Britten isn't it. Argo records are always the business- and so cheap too.

    The Youngblood pressing of the Shihab is literally bombproof. Great record on any pressing.
    Yes, as I say I'm well chuffed. Only Jazz in the box- what were the chances! And what do you know I buggered up my first 'Finds' post, which should, of course, have gone into July.

    First time in the finds for me. I just don't have them. I'm not allowed to go to boot sales in case I come back with 'more junk', and I don't get out anywhere else much unless it's to pick one of the kids up from University. So my school is taking on a couple of extra years, space has to be found, a music teacher stops me and says 'you have records don't you' (she really needed to follow it up with 'weirdo' because that was the tone). 'There's a box in music room1 if you want them'. So they're mostly classical, quite a few Ben Britten, given our location, so that's good. In amongst them one solitary Jazz LP

    It'll be wrecked, thinks I, but no; it's fine. Youngblood issue but nice all the same. Also in there, for reasons I find difficult to fathom...

    Weird eh. God knows what the kids thought the day they spun that one! Anyway it's also in super nick so that's nice.

    I let out a noise which was half oof and half sigh when I saw the Tree but didn't try to put that noise and feeling into words. This happens quite often but rest assured there are people out here salivating at finds like that.

    the lad's coming back to this thread, and he must be disappointed that you don't get to complain that no-one's responded to his post.

    Yew can't beat a good tree joke.

    A great find Si. Have appreciated a lot of the stuff posted here recently. Enjoyed Funky Charly's generous post above too.
