  1. I see predictably that Kungs abortion is sold out at Juno. I couldn't have even brought myself to buy one to sell on at an inflated price somewhere down the line!! LOLOL Chortle, none available in London on the day. I eventually got one online. Purely for completist purposes you'll understand!! Hump

  2. Very cool picture Steve. I saw JT live a couple of times back in the day. Family were a Leicester band so saw them a few time too. I recall the guitarist played with a twin neck guitar. However I could never quite get Captain Beefheart - way too prog for me. Cheers

  3. Smudger Very similar in Mkt Harborough, most were all soulies at heart but it didn't stop a Sunday afternoon or two with John Mayal, Eric Clapton or in the Court of the Crimson King. I recall though when it came down to style choices, I swapped my very beaten up copy of Disraeli Gears for a pristine copy of Hot Buttered Soul. I reckon I got the best deal. Mind you quite a few mates couldn't get on with either, preferring tunes that were more conventional and a lot more danceable. hump

  4. Indeed Pete The depth of knowledge about almost any topic on this site is remarkable. Cheers hump

  5. Blimey That was quick, thanks. I'd never have guessed it was Love Affair. Wonder why an Emidisc was made - we'll probably never know. Cheers Mike

  6. Anyone out there know a bit about prog rock? I was sorting through a box of bits and bobs a while back and came across an Emidisc with the title "Gee's Whiz". it was only a few pence and thinking it was a misspelling I put it in my pile. When I played it, rather than being a Carla Thomas copy it turned out to be flute driven rock thing, sort of Jethro Tull style. It sounds too good to be a hopeful amateur. Anyone got a clue or can suggest a site for such stuff? Mike prog emidisc.pdf Gee's Whiz.mp3

  7. I think you'll find a pint of milk varies from shop to shop Mike. Fair point, and its not as if we don't have a choice. No one makes us buy records. I can't believe the prices I've paid for stuff - completely illogical. Regarding availability of certain tracks - I could find a copy of Kungs 7" anywhere.

  8. The prices must vary, I though they were all the same. My daughter picked it up in Berwick St for £28.99. (Still pricey). Mike

  10. Hello all I saw a copy of Judy Clay "Do you think that's right for sale" on the sales forum. With a very different label (an quite a bit prettier) to the one I have. Is this a different pressing plant or a release in another region? Anyone know? Thanks Mike

  11. Hello all Anyone have a copy they are prepared to let go? Please PM me - cheers Mike
  12. That clinches it for me. Sigma, Delta, Epsilon plus the indistinguishable factory stamp and the record number, identical. Thanks a lot, but that leaves one question unanswered - WHY DID KEB WANT TWO COPIES?? Mike

  13. A bit of googling says the Collegians are a doo wop group from 50's. SO I guess your right. Anyone got an issue to check the deadwax? Thanks Mike

  14. Interesting. Its as if the pressing has used an old label reversed. This is from the blank other side.

  15. Its reversed, but I think its says Zoom and "The Collegians" Will get back with a bit more info after looking in a mirror. Mike
