Well $78 is still $78, but I was expecting this to go up in the last few minutes.... I kind of wish I'd bid, but I don't like the song enough really. (I have the Downliners Sect version, I prefer it).

Mint 45 on US ebay finishing today/tonight - I know some of you will have seen this already. I'm posting it here to put myself off bidding!

Fear is way ahead of the pack for me - I love the spiky sparse arrangements, where Paris 1919 is just mush to my ears. 2nd fave would be Church of Anthrax - 60s to mid 70s Terry Riley is great!

velvi$ - my original banana has a healthy outline of yellow, although the back of the LP has the black sticker covering upside-down Eric Emerson. I don't mind that, as I have Emerson on the front of a Canadian stereo issue. Interesting that the large photo (it's almost 20x16 inches) didn't attract m...

Suggestion: Take One / Leave One CD-R exchange

>It has a buy now option for ?100 - does that sound like a lot of >money ???? Ah - don't bother with that one! - it peels but it's last version with the "close cut" banana rather that the earlier ones which had a big blobby yellow border.

I used to kid myself that I'm not a "collector", but at this point, there's no point in denying it. I've spent a lot of money, and spent many hours glued to ebay, but always paid less than the going rate for my stuff, by looking for vague descriptions and typos, and bidding in the last 10 seconds.

Yeah - thanks! - I like the new forum - the colour scheme is nicer that the Aimoo one too - sort of like the Big Yellow in reverse.
