Rare Record Collecting in the UK

Just came across this today on the ‘Tube and found it highly entertaining. This dates back to 1990 and clearly a lot has happened in the last 21 years! I love the guy they interview at the record show, right around the one minute mark. He seems rather proud of his 4000-LP collection! This is […]

Whole lotta nothin’

Haven’t had any luck this week. For a while it seemed like I was coming across some pretty good stuff (a lot of which I still haven’t posted here yet), but at the moment I’m not finding a whole lot. Hit one place today that I haven’t been to in about 5 months and they […]
