I mostly bought the remastered Two Tone releases this year.

My favourite re-release of 2021 would have to be Double Barrel. Described as "a bit of a mishmash of Barker and Collins’ solo work with a ...

Independent stores are getting yellow vinyl.

Iove Poor Joe and your recent posts on films and music - perfect antidote to lockdown.

Thought of another tune - Dubliners playing Seven Drunken Nights.

I remember buying the Skinhead 7s box set and playing each of the singles in turn. When I put on the instrumental Tea House, I was insanely happy. There is just something about hearing a song for the ...

I have to confess I have tried my best to get through life without listening to Pink Floyd.

I would imagine that the law of diminishing returns will be in effect here, if they keep coming up - this is quite soon after the first one. There are 5 bidders on this one so far and it is up to £22 ...

Harry,

I did think about What I Like Most About You Is Your Girlfriend. I absolutely love the single (and the video). Just could not decide what to leave out - maybe it should be a Top Eleven!
