Good selection of LP's there. I go to the Glasgow record fair. I walk around like a headless chicken for the first hour. The one thing I do notice though is the fact that a lot of records are overpriced and many in poor condition. It's not really a place to go in search of a bargain.

Same at most of the fairs I go to. Half the stuff is priced ridiculously, but if like me you are prepared to buy less than mint examples you can pick up some bargains.
Sadly the lunacy that is ever prevalant on ebay is pushing prices through the roof.
As an example a mint 1st pressing of Electric Ladyland would have set you back around £50 a few years ago, they were all topping the £300 barrier yesterday. I wouldn't mind if it was a truly rare album but It's not that hard to find.

I went to a thrift store yesterday morning. As I was walking into the store, a guy was walking away from the cash register and towards the exit with stacks of records under his arms (and a big smile on his face). I went over to where they keep the records and there were a bunch of nice mint records. But, all of the good stuff had already been picked over. I did buy a nice original pressing of 'Tubular Bells,' though.

With record collecting, it is all about timing.

All great albums. I really must get the Nirvana albums on vinyl. The Nickelback album is also great. I wasn't aware it was available on vinyl. The Coldplay album is a fantastic debut by one of th best british bands in recent years.

Brand New Age is a great punk album. I bought a red vinyl copy a couple of weeks ago. I was surprised by how fresh it sounds after 20 odd years. One to look out for is Endnangered Secies. A later album released in 1990 which has some excellent songs.
