In the day looking at cloths in Justin’s or Ivor’s was only bettered by flicking through LPs in Rare Records then jumping on the Match Special from Aytoun Street
Haha - happy Mondays jaunt to Barbados is legendary although didn't produce a 'classic' album! I'd imagine the biggest cost associated with the reissued stuff is the printing of the sleeve and lack of economy of scale (small pressing runs)A huge cost in producing an album is spent on the actual recording of it.
Bands would take months recording, sometimes at expensive studios like Carabou high in the Rockies, or Monserrat in the Caribbean.
Being as many of these newly produced 'classic' albums have already been recorded years ago, yes, they are ripping you off.
Wasn't that by Terrance and Phillip?We used to have a record when I was a kid that was a series of farts. Each one was introduced with its name and then a little sketch leading up to the fart. I remember it said The Bum Notes on the record (who also appear on the credits for the Bottom theme - not sure it's the same people) but I've never been able to find it anywhere. I thought someone might have uploaded it to Youtube.
My favourite was the Brown Corduroy.
I chucked all my tapes out a few years ago but I always used TDK SA for recording.One thing I've been looking at recently is getting an early 80s ghetto blaster. Always wanted on as a kid with loads of buttons and lights on and I've always thought they looked cool
One thing I've wondered about is tapes. I always remember chrome and metal tapes costing quite a lot more back in the day. I wonder if they are still sound as good (or bad now)? Does anyone still bother with tapes??
