My most recent additions to my collection. Nothing startling really, but some fun stuff.
I’ve been a fan for a long time now, and I saw them at WOMAD a few years ago, which was a real joy. Now they’ve released Burials in Several Earths on 10″ vinyl and it is a thing of beauty. Not only to listen to but simply as an object in itself. I’m glad to own it.
I actually preferred their less popular single “Silver Mac” which was a lot slower and more thoughtful than this track. Even so this is good and fun and a nice reminder of the 80’s too.
Another great Dexys 7″, but this one I got because of the TV show it was made for. I used to really like that show, it was fun, and this was so cheap that I had to buy it just to remind me of it.
A 1978 copy of this! I had to pick it up really, and it was really cheap too. A bargain, and a great song too.
This is one of my all time favourite Tom Robinson tracks. It really is excellent. I’d more or less forgotten the song, so when I stumbled over it I was really pleased. Now that I have the 7″ I thought I’d find a digital version too. Could I find it anywhere? No, not anywhere at all! What’s that about?
I tried to find it on CD and those are hard to come by too. I’ll keep searching.
