My wife is on her way back from Detroit with a big pile of records :eek: She won't tell me what she's got, other than teasing me with a bargain, $3 dollar copy of this :cool:. She tells me that she's been out digging with some top soul collectors, who kept passing her the quality cheapies :)

I'm very much looking forward to her getting home tomorrow :D
Sounds great, what did she bring you? I think I'd burst. Top wifing, I hope you spoiled her rotten for that :thumbs:


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.

Exactly that! Swings and roundabouts.
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:

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...

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