Another lunch time wander today. Dropped into the Record Fayre for the first time since May (or so). Slim pickings, but there was one LP that took my fancy (that’s how slim the pickings). I got chatting with the fella who owns the place and he was saying how there hasn’t been much of a turnaround with vinyl. Not much demand and, in turn, not much supply. “It’s all about the CDs”, he says.
Anyhoo, the LP I spotted is one that I’ve been considering buying for a while. The stumbling block has always been the somewhat mixed reviews. Still, The Flaming Lips are one of my favourite bands and With A Little Help From My Fwends also happens to be a ‘tribute’ to the only album by The Beatles that I have much time for (sorry Beatlemaniacs). So, at £10 it seemed like a perfect time to snap this up.
Happens to be sealed, too. Result.
I’ll report back, of course.
