    Definitely put it on your wish list - it's worth it !!!!!
    Charity shops up here are all crap, never have anything worth buying. I get all my £1 or less bargains at car boots. And if it's something in particular I want, Music Magpie (via Ebay) is a good place.

    I also have "We Too Are One", "Revenge", "Touch", "Be Yourself Tonight" and "Savage" on normal black vinyl (all fine iirc), and "Peace" on CD which is excellent.

    But I'll put "Sweet Dreams" on my CD wish list. Not heard it in years.
    If LPs are not black vinyl, I won't touch them. 'Vinyl' (polyvinyl chloride) is transparent. The addition of carbon black makes it black (obviously!) and thus easy to cue tracks, and the carbon also greatly helps reduce problems with static.


    Sales of CDs at boot sales are becoming more expensive - typically £1/ or occasionally 50p/, and they are often in poor condition. Whereas most charity shops now only charge 50p/, and as is becoming increasingly common: 4 x CD for £1, or 25p/. They are also in much better condition.
    The charity shops in some of the more 'cosmopolitan' parts of London stock the most amazing variety of CDs. At 25p or 50p, one can afford to gamble and be introduced to acts and music that is new to you. Only rarely have I picked up a CD that didn't like.

    Returning to LPs, boot sales are largely useless - the choice is poor, usually 'best ofs' and easy listening, and the condition of both the record and the sleeve is often poor. There are of course the traders, who armed with their Record Buyers Guide, sell their wares for high prices; largely irrespecive of condition. The best however are those record sellers who get their stock from house clearances - they sell LPs for much more reasonable prices, and the condition is always good.

    “Nothing discloses real character like the use of power. It is easy for the weak to be gentle. Most people can bear adversity. But if you wish to know what a man really is, give him power. This is the supreme test. It is the glory of Lincoln that, having almost absolute power, he never abused it, except on the side of mercy.”

    “You see these dictators on their pedestals, surrounded by the bayonets of their soldiers and the truncheons of their police ... yet in their hearts there is unspoken fear. They are afraid of words and thoughts: words spoken abroad, thoughts stirring at home -- all the more powerful because forbidden -- terrify them. A little mouse of thought appears in the room, and even the mightiest potentates are thrown into panic.”

    I only discovered them a few years ago, on recommendation from my nephew. This is probably my favourite of theirs, although I rather like Fear Inoculum. Lateralus musically is quite a varied and and even some individual tracks shift around musically, I cannot remember which two tracks but there is distinct overtones of and early Black Sabbath sound and feel, certainly the guitar and bass.

    Picked this 1st Edition up today in Sidmouth Red Cross shop, bit pricey at £4.99 but as NM/NM was worth it, it sounds rather good, surprised to see what its selling for on Discogs.

    At car boots there are still individuals who maybe going over to streaming or have digitised their collections, and there you have a fair chance of picking up something decent.

    Traders at car boot sales I always walk past - easy to spot as they tend not to sell anything else, and their wares look like they've been out in all weathers.

    What is your opinion of record fairs? We plan to go to one this Saturday, there's one in Manchester and one in Windermere. We will decide which one on the day - if the weather's nice the Lake District will be gridlock and best avoided.

    I haven't been to a record fair for years. The last one was in Chelmsford, probably about 25 years ago. I think I picked up one or two LPs, in good nick and for a reasonable price.

    I think one of the record emporiums here hold a monthly Record Day bash, but they usually promote LP titles specially chosen for the occasion, and are attended by 'vinyl groupies' - I can't be bothered: vinyl is not that important to me.

    But if you haven't been to one, you might find them interesting - and you might find something you have been after for a good while. I would imagine that record fairs now also sell CDs.

    Good luck.
