I've never seen a Bob Dylan CD in a charity shop.


I hereby express amazement at this comment.  I see 'em everywhere.  Normally early stuff like Freewheelin'.  Later 90's+ material is a regular too, although almost never from once he becomes momentarily listenable again.  What is truly bizarre is that you don't fall over copies of the Christmas or Frank Sinatra b**lox.  Grin


Never seen one round here and theres plenty of shops. Plenty by Fatty W, Westlife, Will Young and Katie Melua though.

I did warn you Bridgwit. You need to put Goldrush on to clean your ears out after listening to Landing on Water (and sinking).

I love Turin Brakes - I can't believe anyone would give their CDs away!  


You tend to get that when there''s a hit single (or a 'Later...with Jools...' appearance) and then folk realise it's atypical compared to the rest of their stuff. Shortly after 'Runaway Train' you couldn't move for Soul Asylum LPs.

For the princely sum of £2 from Oxfam in Cheltenham, I nabbed a copy of John Rae's Celtic Feet CD - self-penned hybrids of Scottish trad-sounding tunes and melodic jazz.

Two good ones from Reading's Oxfam music shop today - Fairport's Cropredy 98, which I haven't seen for sale before, and False Lights Harmonograph - looks like a promotional copy, a week before the official release date!

Spotted today in the BHF shop in Cheltenham: Santana IV "Live from the House of Blues" 2 CD & 1 DVD set for £5.99.

Pity I bought it just 10 days ago for the best part of £20 (Xmas money). Bah!

I think our local Oxfam must have had a recent donation from someone with similar tastes to me.  In the last couple of weeks I have picked up Huw & Tony Williams' Rosemary's Sister, Tom Leary's Calm Waters, Waz Fully Chromatic and Kerfuffle Links.

In another charity shop this morning (we have five in our little shopping precinct!), Natalie Merchant's The House Carpenter's Daughter (which includes her version of Crazy Man Michael) for just one of your English pounds! Smiley

Great selection, I have one Huw and Tony album on vinyl which is fab but could do with more on CD. I loved Kerfuffle when they were a working band. Why aren't the charity shops near me so fruitful?

Ours aren't often.  I think someone with good taste must have donated their collection recently.

Found this the other day https://www.amazon.co.uk/All-Right-Now-Essential-Free/dp/B077ZG44KF, but for a fiver in Asda.  Since I only have a few songs here and there this seemed a good way of getting hold of the majority of their output.  A few strange omissions - no Wishing Well!  But since I have that elsewhere, not such a problem.

At a local antique centre yesterday I picked up an original 1961 mono recording Blue Hawaii by Elvis for the princely sum of £4 sleeve a bit battered but the vinyl is in excellent nick - I will be returning to have a thorough trawl through the hundreds of albums they have all got the same price.

I have just purchased the Free 5 Classic Albums after seeing your post. Great buy, thanks for pointing it out, Mike.
