  2. J Manship Auction Results 09/08/2017

    I had a Charles Johnson when nobody would give more than a fiver for it. Sold it for a tenner. Thought I'd done well... I should have put a sell on clause in the sale, like the footballer transfers do now:) Ed
  3. never heard it before, but had to buy it

    I disagree, I think the author is talking about impulse buying a tune, immediately he got a chance to do so because he thought the record was awesome. Not looking at a label and thinking he would take a chance. That would make another thread. Ed
  4. never heard it before, but had to buy it

  13. The top 500

    Forget previous lists, the topic is about the top 500 most popular tunes TODAY... Just to see how things have changed. IF no smoking is still popular (I doubt it) on today's scene, then put it forward! Ed
