  1. Head and shoulders the best track on the LP as far as I'm concerned: Cheers Roger
  2. Best wishes me old mate, fight it and fight it hard and get well soon xxx
  3. Soul CD's have little resale value, save for the odd few that are in demand, believe me - I spent nearly 30 years amassing a very hefty collection of new releases, many rare indie ones which can be seen for crazy money from chancers on the likes of Amazon or Discogs or wherever, but honestly, nobody wants them. I sold mine because of both storage space (not having a garage in the new house to put them) and never actually playing or looking at them any more. I put a load of discogs, tried to get hefty prices on a few I thought I could and failed miserably on most of them, I sold them eventually in a couple of jobs lots, at a fraction of what they cost me. I've also been doing CD cover designs for 20 years now and have seen it all decline to the point where I rarely do a cover for an artist album, and even the compilation/reissues are struggling miserably with sales these days unfortunately, though the resurgence of vinyl has seen a bit of an upturn in fortunes, though no to the extent people are going to get rich off it. Sadly I think the end of the CD, as much as I've tried to kid myself for years now, is definitely in sight and if you're hanging onto a CD collection in the hope of making a good few quid, honestly, think again! Cheers Roger
  4. Anyone have this they'd be willing to sell me please? Thanks a lot Roger
  5. Great stuff, really nice, cheers for posting!
  6. Great post. For years I've enjoyed the convenience of non-original media (CDR, mp3) for listening to privately, and (shock horror!) for playing out at 'modden' venues where none of the NS/rare values were ever a concern to anyone, but when it comes to buying for the collection then it would always have to be original where possible, but recently I've started to gain a huge amount of pleasure from spending time with a few drinks and friends in the record room, digging out the real deal vinyl records and playing them and looking at and listening to them for what they are - just fantastic pieces of classic art and great memories which have been the soundtrack to most of my adult life. As I said, excellent post Mick, I'm sure most can relate to what you're saying. Cheers Roger
  7. Me too, played it this weekend at the North Lancs Soul Festival, killer version. Cheers Roger
  8. Not sure it was ever released on vinyl to be honest, Andy. Cheers Roger
  9. If any of you lot moaning about it were selling it and somebody bid a couple of ton on it, I somehow suspect you wouldn't be quite so outraged.
  10. One of the greatest of the all time greats, may he rest in peace.
