Jethro Tull A - A La Mode.

3 CD, 3 DVD all set in a nice lavish book like the other sets.

£12.99 !

There are NEW copies available for around 15 quid all over the place at the moment.

Not one of the most regarded Tull albums, but with Peggy and Eddie Jobson together in the live concert footage, my Fairport and Zappa fetishes are satisfied.

If only the Passion Play set (only 2 CDs and 2DVDs) was that price, and not between £100 and £300!)

Bargain Prog magazine....6 issues for £9.99 from Sept (normally £14.50 for 2 issues) from Magazine Direct (it's on Page 3 of this list - lots of other cheap magazine there too - music and otherwise)

The only tenuous link I spotted: "In 1847, the Band of Hope was founded in Leeds, with the stated aim of saving working class children from the perils of drink".  Sounds like the sort of thing Tam would be well aware of.

Meanwhile, I picked up recently: "White Noise - An Electric Storm" (2007 remaster) and "Johnny Boy Would Love This - A Tribute To John Martyn" (2011 2CD set) - £4.99 each

The White Noise album, being a collaboration between Delia Derbyshire, David Vorhaus and Brian Hodgson, was highly innovative and still sounds very modern, in some ways. Absolutely love "Here Come The Fleas"!

I have a CD of  (The)  White Noise  : An Electric Storm  which i picked up at a record fair some years ago.  Never been able to get into it, even though it's regarded as an important recording.

I’m on Operation Downsizing so won’t be buying any new boxsets & might even get rid of a few…

Well, that’s the idea   Undecided

George wasn't always best served by his producers in my opinion, despite the praise heaped on ATMP. Some of the songs for me were lost in the big sound that Spector loved so this set with many demos looks wonderful. The fragile voice, fab guitar playing, is where I think George really shone.

Haven't managed to listen to it yet - too busy preparing for Cropredy! - but while out buying last-minute provisions this afternoon, the charity shop next door to the Co-Op had Joanna Newsom's "Have One On Me" 3CD set for 50p. I've never knowingly heard anything by JN, so whatever she sounds like, it'll be a surprise.  I must remember to put ATMP at the top of the pile if I buy any media at the festival....

There have been a few ludicrous FC related bargains on eBay recently, but I think this takes the biscuit...I'm annoyed at myself for not going in for that one!

Realised to my horror that we are going to Cornwall in the van for a couple of weeks and, with the nights drawing in, and needing our TV and DVD, and there will be an unnecessary amount of egg chasing for the grossly overweight on our screens. No problem 6 DVDs for a quid in total from a charity shop.

Alongside basic Freeview TV, DVDs are actually still my viewing media of choice, recently slimmed down using paper storage sleeves.

It does however come as a bit of a shock, knowing how much I have spent over the decades on DVDs, and then realising just how little they are actually worth now! Grin
