My brother got a new record player, so he gave me his old one.  Just required a stylus and a pre-amp.  Over the last few days we’ve been taking it easy, watching the squirrels battle a blizzard in the garden while drinking coffee and thinking about how I could best assist the little critters.  Listened to some fine musics (in my opinion, of course) and we headed out for a wee jaunt about the record shops – where I picked up these gems.

Record Fayre
Bing Crosby – Best of Bing (99p)
Kris Kristofferson – Me and Bobby McGee (£1.50)
Michael Nesmith & The First National Band (£4)

Missing
Spirit – Spirit of ’76 (£6)

Ry Cooder – Ry Cooder (£2.99)

Michael Nesmith & The First National Band – Loose Salute

Some fine records they are too.  Really pleased to have nabbed the Michael Nesmith LPs and that Spirit of ’76 was a timely find given I’d been rediscovering Spirit and a good friend had suggested I venture beyond the ‘classics’.
