The Other Boot/The Third Leg 3CD set, just arrived from an eBay seller.

Patience is its own reward.  I've been shopping for this for over 10 years.
If anyone else wants this, I have permission from Simon to give MP3 copies to those who ask.

That's the one that was released (in an edited version) as The Quiet Joys of Brotherhood, wasn't it?

Souvenir: The Complee Singles 1979 - 2019 - OMD. Brand new 3 disc vinyl release.

Listening with all the nervousness that a new slab of vinyl entails. David will be along shortly to tell me there is no such problem with cassettes.  Grin

I think so, I got that fairly recently. What struck me as a bit odd about 1987 based on the recorded evidence (my first Cropredy was 1991) is that RT and Swarb didn't play on any tracks together. Looking at the set list here : http://fclist.org/cropredy-cropredy-line-ups/cropredy-1987 they did play Sloth and sir B Mackenzie - were these with the FH line-up? Maybe these weren't recorded or not of sufficient quality? Can anyone who was in attendance confirm (it is only 32 years ago....) ?

I can't answer the specific, but I'm fairly certain that the Full House lineup did play together that year...

Presumably you prefer vinyl because the cd version has nearly 100 tracks over 5 discs.

Nope. I am no more than a casual OMD fan and only wanted the singles. The big box has live discs and discs of b sides and rarities and things I would never listen to and was much more expensive than the vinyl. The vinyl was an indulgence but occasionally I like to treat myself to a nice vinyl package for its aesthetic and tactile qualities as much as anything else (though the packaging on this is a bit underwhelming). Is that a problem? I did also pick up the cheap 2 CD set for under a tenner.

Ha!  I buy vinyl too.  Believe me, whenever I do play a cassette, particularly a vintage one, I'm on tenterhooks.  But, yeah...I feel your pain.  My move to Dorset has scuppered me seeing OMD in Liverpool with my other half which I was really looking forward to....so I'm really disappointed about that.

I bought Quiet Joys and enjoyed it so much I started the ten-year quest to find Other Boot/Third Leg on CD. Iain Matthews, in particular, is spectacular in these recordings, but everyone shines. More is better, in this case.

Cream - I'm So Glad-I Feel Free-Crossroads live.

Never got to see Cream, saw  Blind Faith at Hyde Park and The Graham Bond Organization many times.

They've sold 35 million albums !?  Wow!

RIP Ginger.

A little exploring into the history of Tide Lines, who I very much enjoyed at Cropredy this year, has led me to Skipinnish, who had previously passed me by.  I am now having a good time listening to their last two albums, The Seventh Wave and Steer By The Stars.  Now fronted by Norrie MacIver, who has previously appeared on the Cropredy stage, in 2006 with Bodega, the R2 Young Folk Award winners that year.

Soundtracking Clinton Heylin's (slightly terse) Fairport book which I have finally got around to reading so:

Live at the BBC (discs 1 & 2) - Fairport Convention
Liege & Lief - Fairport Convention
(guitar, vocal) - Richard Thompson: the Fairport tracks
The Essential Collection - Matthews Southern Comfort
Hark The Village Wait - Steeleye Span
Full House - Fairport Convention
Fotheringay - Fotheringay

so far...

I am shocked to discover that I don't own a copy of Sandy's BBC set which I was sure I had. I have also just had to invest pricily (though less so than most available copies) in Iain Matthews' first two solo albums, hopefully arriving from the Netherlands in the next couple of days.

Skippinish are excellent live, ditto Skerryvore who are very similar. Skippinish are slightly better musically but Skerryvore are a bit rockier with the singer playing a lot of electric guitar. There is certainly going to be bagpipe fest at Skeggy.

I bought that for my dad in the limited hardback book format, but it went awol - along with the two books of Lennon nonsense - when he died. It took me some time to locate a book copy that was affordable...even the standard version is expensive, which is bonkers considering the material is available all over the place in cheapo comps. It is a fab collection though.
