Cripes I remember the stone tapes - spooky TV play They don't make them like that anymore. See also xmas MR James ghost stories on TV.
 I think they did it on radio much more recently..

I got the Kristin Hersh lp and the Ithaca/Agincourt/Peter Howells.

There were three items I would have been interested in but no local shops participate so no chance.

Current ebay prices for them don't look promising. I'm hoping the Peter Gabriel album may get a regular release as it has only appeared as a picture disc for RSD.

Excellent taste.  I'm desperate for that.  Hopefully I've sourced one, but we'll see...

I gave it a miss this year. Only wanted Curse of Lono's 4am and Counting and the Trembling Bells/Alex Rex 10" and neither of those were ever going to sell out on the day, so I'll pick them up when the shops put the leftover stock on sale later in the week.

Slightly at a tangent but reading an article in the local rag this week (Maldon and Burnham Standard)  about a local record dealer and his activities on record store day lead to me looking him up online and his website. From it I purchased a pristine vinyl copy of Expletive Delighted signed by Peggy, Ric, Simon and Maart (this signature actually written as ‘Martin Allcock’). The record was delivered this afternoon by the dealer himself for £20. I’m very happy with this purchase  Grin

And how much more would have had to pay for an unsigned copy?  Grin  I remember they used to joke about those being the rare ones!

I used to enjoy collecting Fairport Lp's and asking for signatures at gigs
Then I'd find a better copy , or an earlier pressing , or a promo copy and have to start all over again
Signed CD booklets are just not the same , the artwork is so good on the 60's/70's albums , but shrinking it to CD size ........
I wouldn't mind the pink vinyl Liege and Lief that HMV issued ,

My signed copy of Expletive Delighted is the vinyl copy and the signatures are on the back on the plain (-ish) white space so all good  Smiley
