Baby brother bought a limited 40th anniversary vinyl edition of "Face Dances," with extras including alternate versions of album tracks, outtakes, and the four Face Dances tunes performed on Rockpalast in 1981.

Sounds like a pretty nice package.

So what did people get??
 Huh Cool


2 copies of the Amy Winehouse Remixes , which will remain sealed , because I've now heard them on Youtube and won't ever want to hear them again . The original's that Salam and Mark produced remain perfection . £35 each , at least its for 2 good causes , keeping an indie record shop alive and the Amy Foundation.

Well, I got the 2 Bert Jansch LPs.

These are reissues of Edge of a Dream (2001) and The Black Swan (2006). Edge of a Dream has not had a standalone vinyl release before. The Black Swan slipped out on vinyl but didn't seem to be widely available.  

I'm pleased with both  although I had to return The Black Swan for another copy due to pressing issues.

It's good to see Earth Records making Bert's back catalogue available again. He had a long and distinguished solo career,  imo, and there's  lots to explore.

My take on it is that Fisherman's Blues was a compromise.  It should have been either two separate albums or one double.  As it is, you get three years development shoehorned into one album.  Room to Roam on the other hand is a complete picture of a moment in time.  Fisherman's Blues reaches higher heights, but Room to Roam is more coherent, and more joyful.

Seconds for this! 👍


This little David/Jules/Skirky mini thread has finally urged me to go beyond the Waterboys' greatest hits and buy some actual albums. I know a lot more songs than I own from live gigs, but I have just been informed that This Is The Sea, Fisherman's Blues, Room To Roam and Dream Harder have been dispatched. £8 the lot.

I recently spent time in the infamous Cob Records in Porthmadog..

Not a single Fairport nor Maart recording could I find in there (and Maart only lived a few miles away)…

Why is it infamous Jenny? I'm intrigued.

I think Maart's CDs are getting scarce in general. There are a couple that I have struggled to get hold of in recent years, not having picked them up at the time.

I almost went in COB t'other week, but arrived in Porthmadog just as they were closing.  I've picked up a few Crim-related CDs there over the years, though.

It's quite 'old school' and its pricing is all over the place but there are bargains to be had there.

I used to buy and part exchange vinyl with Cob via mail order in the 1980's and did visit it once , glad to hear it's still operating
Remember picking up Television's "Adventure" on red vinyl ,for about £2  although I think black vinyl copies were rarer....

I discovered Cob in 1978 on a school trip and bought a copy of the Italian import single of Pink Floyd's Point Me At The Sky, and I too, bought a lot of stuff via the mail order service.
Until recently, I've driven all the way there with a pile of cash and returned with a stack of vinyl, once or twice a year.
Sometimes I go and sit on Black Rock Sands for half an hour, too.

Takes me back.
 I used to buy lps from COB in my schooldays because they were cheaper and it saved going 'into town' for them.   I'm surprised they're still going.

Takes me back too. I have a friend in Abersoch  and used to park our van on his smallholding for a cheap holiday. Always tried to stop at Cob on the way home.

I'm delighted Cob Records is still going strong. I've picked up loads of great new (to me!) albums there over the years. Probably my most treasured one is an original cassette of Frogmorton's At Last, from1976.
