Hahah no, things aren't that bad yet. Getting rid of the 'sub-collection' - the hundreds of records that I've picked-up over the years for free.Not... getting rid of the collection?! *shudders*
That's half right - 90s-pressed records are so valuable because hardly any were pressed (I'm talking rock albums here - 90s dance 12"s are all over the place, but most have been DJed to death). I've got first presses of Morning Glory, The Bends and OK Computer that would sell for triple figures. However my first mono pressing of Sgt Pepper is only worth about £70.A friend of mine is getting seriously into collecting vinyl, but finds all the really interesting/quality stuff costs an absolute bomb, even in the charity shops.
Though I did hear some expert on the radio recently saying the real money is in 1990s records, because Generation X and their music collection are so reluctantly parted.
My Sergeant Pepper LP and CD are both signed by Peter Blake – with a bit of foresight I could have had the LP signed by Paul McCartney and George Martin as well. I met Paul, Linda, Peter and George Martin at a private opening of a Linda McCartney exhibition at the Royal Photographic Society in the late 80s...That's half right - 90s-pressed records are so valuable because hardly any were pressed (I'm talking rock albums here - 90s dance 12"s are all over the place, but most have been DJed to death).

Sadly, the real money is with.....Keane. Their first album is worth an absolute packet on vinyl. You can pick-up the CD for a penny.
I'm available, should you wish to read aloud...Went to the supermarket and there's a book sale, and I picked up a couple of very famous ghost tomes. They're ones I've had before but probably been lent out or somehow lost. I just wish I had someone to read them aloud to!
Go for it.I'll put the kettle on, and break out the posh biscuits...
When I worked in kid house units for similar reasons, I was playing them human beat box tapes and shouted at them all to shut up and watch The Phantom Menace trailer one day when it was on telly .. when I wasn't trapping some of them against the wall with bean bags when they were trying to fight each other ..Go for it.
When I worked in kids' homes I'd read aloud to my charges at bedtime to settle them. They were troubled teenagers, some on remand for quite serious crimes, so the books weren't the works of Hans Anderson. Stephen King was a favourite.
Can remember reading them the one that opens with a tooth and some hair growing in somene's brain. Brrr.
I have John Mayalls 'Blues from Laurel Canyon' . Bought the LP when it came out.This book. The author's essays & theories have been discussed in a couple of threads here, so I thought it worth a read.

According to Google: The very strange but nevertheless true story of the dark underbelly of a 1960s hippie utopia. Laurel Canyon in the 1960s and early 1970s was a magical place where a dizzying array of musical artists congregated to create much of the music that provided the soundtrack to those turbulent times. ...
I'm looking forward to this.
