Nice little charity shop/market haul in Bridport this morning... Camel - Snow Goose (+extras), Fleetwood Mac - 50 Year's Don't stop 3 CD comp (sealed), Penguin Cafe Orchestra Concert Programme 2 CD (£3 in total); Yes Speak 35 2 DVD comp (£1.50); Patrick Humphries Richard Thompson Strange Affair (£4)...oh, and a rather more expensive (but still well under half it's actual value) New Naturalist.  Plus more coffee and GF cake than any man can truly want.  I do like Bridport.


Sounds great - now I need to think of a good excuse to go to Bridport!

Bridport's just, well, very nice.  No excuse required!

Just thought I'd mention this site

https://www.luckydice.nl/cgi-bin/cart.cgi?command=listitems&pos=0&type=group&group=newsale

Which has a permanent sale of stuff which might interest TAW readers -my pick of the current items are Three Hat Trio, Nathan Bell, Robert Ellis, Rita Hosking and Diana Jones.
Shipping is 6 euros for a shipment (any size/weight) so pays to order a few.

BTW -no personal interest in the site just use it.

Also if you are possibly interested in an archive live Elton John release,(legit 2 CD), Base.com seem to have mis-priced it.(!); might be canceled as"unavailable" but worth the punt †Cool

I'm 59 this year and bought my first ever Beatles album today.

I was in a charity shop when a bloke brought his entire Beatles / Lennon / Harrison etc CD collection in ... I'll have them £1 a piece £22.

He then goes out and brings in Hendrix / Zeppelin and Pink Floyd collections ... all in £54 result!

From a stall on the local flea Market

25 years of Rough trade shops 4 cd set
Iggy Pop Anthology 2 cds
Harvey Andrews Snaps
World Of Mann (1 cd of Manfred Mann and another of Earth Band)
Mike Oldfield The Collection 2 cds

£1 each or 6 for a fiver . Nothing else I wanted so for the free one I had an 8 cd set by one who shall remain nameless - to be passed on at the earliest opportunity.

19 discs (or 11 and a set of coasters) for a fiver. Not bad. The 2 big sets looked unopened.

Struggling to think of an 8 disk set. Phil Collins perhaps, or Andre Rieu?

A rare case of being in the right place at the right time. I happened to be browsing Ebay when a a brand new sealed copy of the Deluxe edition of Bob Dylan's More Blood More Tracks appeared for under £50 from a UK based seller. This was massively over priced on release but patience has been rewarded.

By contrast I have also picked up a copy of Triplicate for under a fiver, which may still be considerably more than it is worth, We shall see. It fills a gap in my collection.
