Anyone still needing Fairport by Fairport book, it's currently on sale at just £10 on the Rocket88 website here


Bejesus, that's some fire sale.  I'm rather tempted by the British Underground Press of the Sixties special edition.

Me too.  I thought it was a terrible book.  Which is why I'm giving myself a right telling off for buying another copy for a tenner.  Sometimes I'm so disappointed by me...  Grin

I am told £65 by the person who is purchasing mine. I don't know if that is the lowest price or where that information comes from.

As ever, too expensive especially when you have to add rail travel costs (£32 for each return) plus food & drink (probably another £20 at least) so that means £117 per ticket at least. When will artists, agents, promoters, venues etc realise not everyone an afford these types of prices...and yes I do know costs have to be covered.... Angry
