    Hello baz,

    Well..he can either keep them or sell them :D

    If he wants to sell he should post pictures/scans of the correspondence and all available information. Those letters could make serious money if their authenticity can be proven. I for one am very interested in this kind of memorabilia, but I only buy from 100 % reliable sources (.....I know one can never be 100 % safe)

    Anyone? I did buy it. It has 3 parts. 1 of which I had on a previous dvd. But there is a live performance from 83 or 84. Also there is a recording of the "South Bank Show" I think it's called. Must have been from late 86/early 87. A Scottish documentary sort of program. I thought it was very interesting but the "music writer/critic" they featured looked like he needed to be rushed to rehab. Seriously. I liked it though

    Hi Lorimoz,

    Did you possibly get the bootlegs from the "Vinyl Revival" shop off Oldham Street Manchester (for 9.99 GBP each)?? I was holding them in my hands a couple of weeks ago but got terribly told off by BF who was being an impatient pain...and doesnt understand my passion...so I didnt buy them in the end. :(

    Happy they ended up in good hands. ;)

    love

    Oh yes. That man looked as if he has serious drug problems. I know it was the 80's and blow was still very popular but if I were directing such a program and the "music expert" did his interview in that condition, I would have thrown the footage out and just included more John Peel. Now I found his commentary to be quite interesting.

    bloody hell was that 4 years ago, I still wear that City shirt! (who just called me a sad bastard?).
    Vinyl Revival, if you talk to the owner he relates an interesting story about Moz calling in his shop in 2004. I personally have always found Vinyl Exchange to be the best for promo's & cd-r's though. Mind you I remember when Afflecks used to have about 1/2 a dozen decent record stalls too.

    oooh the good ol days eh?

    love

    Affleck's Palace is hopeless these days...Vinyl Exchange Oldham Street is my favourite, too, do they have a wider selection of CDs in their Bridge Street shop?

    Crsp it's a much smaller shop at Bridge Street that's why they don't do vinyl there, I think I've only had to go there about twice because they didn't have what I wanted at the Oldham Street shop.
    Clampdown records off Piccadilly square has some good bootlegs but they ask way too much for them. Oxfam is worth checking out as well, they occasionally have something worth buying in.

    love

    While I'm thinking about "Your Arsenal", I bought French "Kill Uncle" LP, new, for 15 GBP. And the rest of The Smiths' album LPs I didn't have.
