Picked up a copy of Tom Petty - Full Moon Fever uk first issue at the record fair for £7 which I've since found out is a bit of a bargin as it goes for over £30 on eBay, so very pleased with myself. Also picked up
Tom Petty - Hard Promises
Prefab Sprout - From Langley Park To Memphis and Protest Songs
Bob Marley and The Wailers - Exodus
B52's - Cosmic Thing

I use those paint pads from B&Q £1.50 they are the perfect size for an LP.

I don't have many ambitions but one of them is to not set foot in B&Q ever again in my life.

A familiar song, in its original form. Not hugely different - just enough to be slightly disconcerting.

Fairport are playing at the Trades Club in Hebden Bridge in May I believe. 

Sandy Denny won't be with them though.

I really love Tom Petty, but 'Wildflowers' somehow, despite being a popular album, just didn't do it for me. But 'Good to be King' is a pretty good song.

Not a typical Petty album but I love it trying to hunt down a vinyl copy for less than £100 is proving impossible.

I gave my copy away, to a friend who liked it more than me.

With over 30 million LPs being pressed last year alone, maybe MoFi or some such will get round to doing a nice quality reissue.

That means if Eddie gets hold of a copy he might want as much as a fiver for it.

One of them has just arrived at our house. Monster Magnet's excellent new album 'Last Patrol'.

 

I shall be giving my ear 'oles a bashing before too long.
