    Too much. I'd missed it so many times I put a big bid in and someone else did exactly the same thing.

    D'wards I'm an excellent driver

    Just bought the reissued soundtracks to Creepshow, Creepshow 2 and Day of the Dead.
    They are lovely editions with coloured vinyl and booklets etc. Flipping expensive to import but I love em. If I had more money I'd buy everything they issue.

    I try not to, but I get my fair share of bargains so I don't mind paying over the odds occasionally for something I've really been after for a long long time.

    Right on cue a bargain drops into my lap :)
    One of the finest slices of lovers rock, a top notch vocal and beautifully produced version of Diana Ross' Upside Down by Carol Cool. Price has shot up since it featured on the Soul Jazz Hustle: Reggae Disco compilation, with a decent copy on Discogs setting you back up to £50 and Ebay prices not much behind. Just got the 12" on Ebay for £9.99 :thumbs:

    Nice find! On a recent charity shop visit i found an album -- Rico in reggae land by Rico Rodridguez. It's spotless for an album forty years old and cost me a quid :cool:

    I met someone in real life that I'd been buying from online for years, so it seemed rude not to give him some cash :D I also had a bit of an Ebay/Discogs spree to celebrate my birthday. I think there may be some I've forgotten...

    This week: :oops:

    Tommy Ray - You Don't Love Me 7"
    Johnny Mathis - Close To You LP - for this

    Ike & Tina Turner - Dust My Broom 7"
    Temptations - Girl (Why You Wanna Make Me Blue) 7" styrene copy :hmm:
    Bob Brady - Everybody's Goin' To The Love-In 7"
    Johnny Taylor & a Bobby Hebb singles, neither of which I can remember the titles of :facepalm:
    Jimmy Hughes - Neighbor, Neighbor 7"
    Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes - Satisfaction Guaranteed 7" (to replace an old worn copy)
    Intruders - (Win, Place Or Show) She's A Winner 7"
    Delfonics - I Told You So 7"
    Nancy Wilson - Today, Tomorrow, Forever LP for her storming version of Unchain My Heart
    Clyde McPhatter - Welcome Home and Little Anthony & the Imperials - Payin' Our Dues LPs for my wife's Christmas present. The Clyde McPhatter LP has a couple of her favourite tunes on it, including

    Should knock the buying on the head until the New Year now, but I probably won't :rolleyes:

    Edited to add: remembered a few more - couple of interesting Atlantic R&B/blues compilations and a Washington Go Go compilation I owned in the 80s, for 50 p each.
