New records - what have you just bagged?


toilet expert
I've waited so long for this. Saw NtR in January in that there London and this was the stand out tune in a set of absolute bangers...I had to have it. Messaged him the next day on FB after figuring it out, and correctly guessing it was one of his own edits.

No, it wasn't out. "Later in the year".

Saw him in Leeds a month or so ago, "Oi, Nick. When's Gimme More coming out? It's been ages"


Finally saw it appear in the pre-order lists last week so grabbed three copies (not for sharking, two mates wanted it too).

Came today...and fuck it was worth the wait.

Nick The Record , Dan* And The No Commercial Value Band - Ep 4

There's no video of his edit, but imagine this original stretched out to 6 or so mins, with a few generic dubby bits (actually not a fan of those, but needs to do something different to stretch it out I suppose).

The original is not only expensive, but it's actually rare. In the true sense - not even on Discogs at the time of writing! And it's only 3 mins long. So this is a very welcome treat :cool:

Good finds at Vinylhead in Ramsgate, including a near mint copy of The Wailers' Catch A Fire, first press in zippo sleeve.

Been after this for over 30 years [emoji41]❤[emoji41]❤

That's very nice :cool:

Today I've been spending money I shouldn't on
and have been generally delighted by an Australian copy of this, which arrived the other day, all the way from Sydney

My wife finally got her bargain of the year. She first failed to get a copy in Barcelona (a wild goose after an elusive Spanish dj :hmm:). Then a much anticipated package arrived from America. Writing 'keep away from heat sources' on the packaging was obviously seen as a challenge :(
Then in some sort of boogaloo karma came into play and a coverless copy turned up for just five dollars. Looks like crap, but plays loud and clear and. of course, we've already got the sleeve :thumbs:

That's annoying. Caught for customs charges on a twenty quid record. Buying from America is becoming too expensive :(

That's a massive percentage. I don't seem to get caught with customs charges very often. Seems random, the occasional record, but I guess there's a reason you get collared sometimes. I bought a couple of mid 20th century ashtrays earlier this year - heavy and a little pricey, no charges on them at all.

They pull random parcels. Some US sellers are prepared to mark the package as a low value gift, but this one wasn't, which is fair enough. I think there maybe an additional post office handling charge to pay as well.

We went into a slight record buying frenzy last week :facepalm::D

Soul Scratch - Pacified - been working my through Colemine Records back catalogue. This was on the doormat when I got in this afternoon.
Linda Clifford - Runaway Love (Edit) - already have the 6 minute version on a 7", but it's too quiet to play out.
Dyke and the Blazers - Runaway People - for pennies off ebay
Bobby Bennett - Before I Blow My Stack - 60s R&B stormer from Philadelphia
Dramatics - Get Up, Get Down
Robert John - Raindrops, Love and Sunshine - can't help but smile whenever I listen to this
DJ Genesis - Tribute To Betty "Tonight" - been meaning to buy this for years
Lee Rogers - Go Go Girl - cheap, so why not?
John Roberts - I'll Forget You - We'd agreed no more records buying for a bit, but then my wife announced she'd spent £38 on this, but that it was OK because it was a bargain. Which it sort of is - getting a lot of plays at northern soul nights at the moment and the price is going up rapidly - first she'd seen for under £80 - we can sell it on in a few months (we won't) and so on ;)

Just back from a trip that took in almost all the record shops of Nantes, Barcelona and Bilbao and a few flea markets. We've come back with just one cheap Ray Charles EP :facepalm: Must be getting more picky :D

On the ferry home, as compensation, I bought myself this
First Peruvian record I've ever bought :cool:
