    Four cd’s for £1 at local charity shop today - Beatles ‘1’ and Dusty Springfield at HerVery Best among them.
    Ridgeback bike frame with front and rear derailleur intact, one mudguard, seat post and handlebar stem all for £1 at Boot Sale at the weekend. I’ll never do anything with it but you can’t pass on a bargain like that can you!

    My last delve into CD purchases at the booty , As many as you like for 10p each , I purchased about 40 = Result

    Err no not quite when going through them playing it then became apparent 1/3 were empty cases

    Remember folks have a look inside , make sure the CD is inside

    Not only that, take the disc out and check it's not scratched or marked in any way.

    Sorry to hear of your experience Al, but booties are a bit of a minefield these days.

    I have given up buying vinyl, unless it's classical, on a recognised label and (usually) from a private seller: the amount traders ask for vinyl (often in the most appalling condition) is absurd.

    Seller companies on amazon are usually fairly good. Ive a few I buy from and often get a near new disc for pennies when the new version may be expensive.

    Sounds like my CD collection. I have a pile of cases that have no CDs in them and a pile of CDs without cases but do any of them match up? Do they bollocks.

    Even worse with LP's. When you find 'Houses of the Holy' inside your 'Spirals in Hyperspace' sleeve, you know you must have had a good night!

    At least an LP weighs enough that you can tell right away that it is not in the sleeve.

    Unless you've had a skinfull of drink and drugs, as you say...

    Can’t tell it’s in the right sleeve though!
    More annoying is when you lose an LP and spend days looking for it only for it to turn up weeks later tucked away inside a gatefold (that you clumsily put away after a skinfull of drink and drugs).

    I pretty much gave up on car boot records (you can usually see at a glance what the condition is going to be like: scabby sleeves=scabby vinyl (usually). Last Sunday I saw some guy pulling out records from a box like his life depended on it, and some of them were tidy looking Moody Blues albums. I jumped in after him and he'd had all the decent stuff (should have followed him to his car and mugged him. But he'd left or missed one, called "To Our Childrens Childrens Children" so I got that, £3.

    Played it when I got home, and it plays as mint as the sleeve Restored my faith a bit.
