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.
I’ve liked bits and pieces of YMO for years, but I’ve more enjoyed the work of the individual members of YMO more. So I thought I’d pick this up and see what it was like. Another good find at my local second hand record store.
As I have a VL-1 and as I’ve even gone as far as releasing my own VL-1 bot I just had to pick this up really. I didn’t have the vinyl version before this, but now I have!
This was a brilliant single on a great album which should have been an amazing soundtrack to the film 1984. I still don’t really know why it wasn’t the soundtrack in the end. It would have worked really well I think.
Another great find from my local second hand record store.
This is a great single, one of my all time favs from Dexys and a nice 7″ too. A lovely old find from my local 2nd hand record store.
Whilst I’m not an absolutely huge fan of the Associates I do like them and I enjoy a lot of their work. I think it was a massive shame about Billy, but there you go. So for me it was nice to stumble over this in a second hand shop and pick it up for nothing. It’s a great single, and I’d never heard it before.
I do occasionally go to my local second hand record shop. Always a visit that I enjoy of course. In one of the last visits I picked up this. I’ve been a fan of Scritti for many years and actually saw Green Gartside a few years ago at the Roundhouse with BEF. He was very good indeed.
This is a lovely song and a great example of 80’s pop too. Nice to have it.
