Just a heads up to any Muddy Waters fans out there. I've just bought his classic "Folk Singer" album on lovely thick 180gm vinyl, new, off Ebay for £12.50 + P&P. BIN price is £15 but looking at the feedback offers have been accepted as low as £11.00.
If you like the blues then you could do worse.

Picked this up for £2. Hardly a pop or crackle to be heard, in great condition.
And it sounds bloody good too..
I remember borrowing this from the library many, many years ago and making a C60 cassette tape of it.
Another one picked up recently. I'd never heard it before, but liking both of the artists a great deal thought I'd take a punt and see how it went.
What a pleasant surprise, I'm really enjoying it. Recorded in 1976, and produced by Glyn Johns, the session musicians in tow is like a Who's Who of 70's British rock.. Clapton, Watts, Entwistle, Rabbit and a few more.
The title sums it up, but its bloody good..
At £3 its a bargain! Good nick too.
Arrived today, brand new from HMV - only £8.99.
Can't wait to get it on..
And deadly for 12000 years is Carbon 14

Yeah, soz 'bout that.
I listened to the whole thing and I gotta say, i'm really getting the whole opera thing now. When they hit those prolonged high notes, i'm goosebump boy.
If you're into opera, FD, what's your fave?
Dont really have a favourite bretts to be honest. Yup the goosebumps can hit big time. A couple of months ago i was near Saltzburg, and went to a couple of shows. One was The Barber of Seville, the young lass who sang Rosinas part was hitting notes i thought impossible. Dunno about goosebumps, the hairs on the back of my neck were giving it some anaw.
The Barber Of Seville that I have, with Callas, is my favourite of the three operas that i've heard.
I want 'Grace' on vinyl, but don't fancy the prices that i've seen the originals go for. I bet 'Hallelujah' sounds amazing. Is yours an original, or the remastered re-issue?
