Some people still buy music? Shocked

I would hope everyone who listens does, whether in a physical or digital format. Otherwise s/he is an asshole (and a thief). Most musicians need the money, and all of them deserve it (if you're going to listen to them).

Just joking. Geez! Sorry you took it so personally.

Didn't take it personally at all. Just responding with my opinion.

I'm terrible, but the last physical thing for me would be TWGMTR and TSS at the same time back almost two years ago when TWGMTR was brand new. I'm assuming we're limiting ourselves to music.

I bought almost no music between maybe 2006 and 2010 as it was all about the file sharing but I really missed the record shop experience and building a collection. I started just buying vinyl from then on and eh....cant seem to stop now... Cool

I predict something similar will happen to me once I start working.

I just buy everything music related off amazon these days unless an ebay or discogs seller can match the price. My end of month payday splurge consisted of

1/ Syd Barrett - Opel.  A couple of stunning performances aside this was mainly a barrel scraping effort.
2/ Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - Let Love In.   I don't know why it took me so long to get into these guys.
3/ Ken Nordine - Word Jazz.    Interesting but not quite as musical based as I hoped it would be.
4/ (DON'T LAUGH) William Shatner - The Transformed Man.    I'm not sure if this is really good or really, really bad.
5/ Brand X - Unorthodox Behaviour.  Going to check this out today.
6/ Genesis - Abcab.  Still in the post and two albums featuring Phil Collins in a row!! Hang my head in shame.

I disagree. For what it is, it's quite a good compilation. Great originals include Opel and Dolly Rocker. Also, it's got an excellent version of Dark Globe, and the best version of Clowns and Jugglers (originally released as Octopus).
Throw in Bob Dylan Blues, Rhamadan, and the unreleased Pink Floyd songs Scream Thy Last Scream and Vegetable Man, and you've got yourself an album just as essential as The Madcap Laughs and Barrett!

Funny the songs that you quoted are the ones that I liked. I also liked Lanky. I much prefer the more 'normal' version of Dark Globe.

Picked up a couple of things this weekend. Most interesting to all of you would probably be the Spring LP. The sleeve has some wear, but the disc itself is pristine. Paid a little more for it than I would have liked, but this was at a store that caters to collectors, so he knew what he was selling.

Amanda Hart scores again!!! LOL You live in some kind of BB collectors Eldorado, the stuff you come across. Nice find, v envious - such a great album and would be rather a treat to hear on vinyl.

I today chanced upon the Japanese 1975 vinyl pressing of Summer Days (which I'm listening to now) - while no biggie I'm sure, I did find some mirth courtesy of the translation losses on the accompanying lyric sheet.

I know it's hardly new/s for many (there's even a dead thread here (and I'm guessin' a blog or website somewhere coverin' the followin'), but here's a quick couple of favs;

Salt Lake City; "And the way the kids, tuck so cool,  is an out of sight thing - and the number one, Male fishin' makes the, town really slick, Yea"

Amusement Parks; "at first you'll be a chicken after jerkin' a ride"

Cal Girls - "I've been all around this cryptin' world"

Next up - an 80s untitled pressing of Hollywood Dream by Thunderclap Newman

Eh, it's just mostly obsessive searching, and making friends with the store owners so they'll know what you'll like. I haven't had a chance to spin it yet, but with the additional 5" of snow we got yesterday, I'm expecting most of my clients to cancel today, so I might find myself with free time.

Those translations are a riot, btw

Cool, I got the gatefold of this (UAS-5571) a few years back but it sadly (along with a lot of other stuff) got water damaged while I was away on holiday. On the bright side I bought the American Spring Plus (see for miles) LP with some of the insurance money.

I've been listening to the Deluxe Village Green I just got in the mail.

Who's singing on this alternative version of Village Green. It sounds like it could be Dave, but might be someone else. Pete???

Yes I've played it several times since, it's a classic.

I just got this in the mail.



It's a mixture of poetry set to BBC Radioworkshop effects and pagan style folk, that schools used to play for children to dance to in drama/music lessons in the 1970s/80s. It's an acquired taste I'm guessing.

No it's still Ray. I believe they first cut it in 1966 during the ...Something Else days. I think this may be that version, does the cd contain any info on it Gabo?

He sounds so nasally. Yeah I know. It was recorded during the same session as Two Sisters in November 1966 (the orchestra was overdubbed in February 1967).


I find it strange how the song is so little known. IMO it's just as good (if not better) than the likes of Waterloo Sunset and You Really Got Me. Easily one of the best Kinks songs. Maybe it's the subject matter?

While not today, I bought Bob Dylan's Tempest on CD a couple of days ago. I had heard it before on release on the internet, then I just ignored and forgot about it for a while I guess.

 I like how Dylan sounds like he's transforming into Tom Waits.   LOL
