Last week, in USA... Hendrix @ Woodstock for $5 (new) in a Walmart (!), and 2 CDs @ 50c each (!!) from a thrift store in Moab: Herbie Hancock "Dis is da drum" and Dubtribe Soundsystem "Bryant Street". Only managed to listen to the first few tracks of Herbie so far, fair to say a bit of a curate's egg - some nice jazz/funk but a couple of iffy raps - by guests, not Herbie!

Anyone fancy some Fleetwood Mac at a bargain price?

Good haul, that!  Is Iain's book one of the rarer unsigned versions?

My local HMV in Hull  reduced their last pink vinyl "Unhalfbricking" to £9.99 late last week , certainly a better price than their £22.99
Worth checking the stores as they seem to have quite a few reductions on , presumably to clear space for big sellers in the run up to Christmas.
Or are they in trouble again , hope not

Most of the HMV stores have a few copies of "Unhalfbricking" on pink vinyl for that price. I was off work last week and it could be picked up in Leeds (which I did!),Lincoln,Doncaster or York.

It's not a bad sale as I also got the Rolling Stones "Rock And Roll Circus" triple vinyl,reduced from £57.99 to £24.99!

A couple of purchases from my local HMV though neither of them bargains as they're new releases -

The Steve How Trio - New Frontier (with 3 tracks written by Steve and Bill Bruford)

Kathryn Tickell and the Darkening - Hollowbone

As it says at the end of this review https://frootsmag.com/hollowbone-kathryn-tickell-the-darkening

Whatever you might have expected from a new Tickell album, this probably isnít it. It may even turn off some longstanding fansÖ but it deserves to attract a lot of new ones too.

I noticed they had copies in my local HMV too. I think it might be a sign of the failure of World Album Day as much as of the store. I have a nice black reissue from a year or 2 back so the pink LP didnt tempt me. †Cool

Hard to find for under £20, that...you did well Smiley  Sadly the hospice shop didn't!

Who on earth put that there?  Shocked If it's sealed it's not like they got home, listened to it and didn't enjoy it so passed it on! Unless they had two copies, of course....

I suppose they might have bought it on Amazon, got an Autorip version, and never opened the actual CD?  But yes, I did wonder!

Nah...I suspect they'll be review copies that never got reviewed.

No idea what this has previously cost, but this is a bargain, surely?

Seven discs for £7.40? That's a bargain. Includes Sons of Champlin & NRPS sets. Lots of cheap copies on Ebay too.  Smiley

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.

Strangely, I had that Camel CD delivered today too. I bought it on vinyl a while ago, but following recommendations from this here bunch of folk, I've bought that, Mirage and Moonmadness on CD.
My bargain was buying a second hand copy of Dylan's 'Albert Hall' gig online for £2 and getting a nice sealed un-played one.

I love those classic Camel albums. Bought Moonmadness on clear vinyl a while ago.
