Fist Full O Sevens

…Too Tone playing one-deck on the Poweray at Dee’s place….

…tunes awesome…sound quality befitting the age and purpose of a 60’s mono portable disc spinning device!….

…first fresh plates in a long time….original late sixties early seventies 45s in near new condition (cheers John)….mmmm…need me some more of these….

The Moaning Is Over

…for years I’d felt aggrieved after reading an article about a New York secondhand  record dealer, who claimed to regularly find money, joints & tabs (nay, sheets!!) of acid slipped into Lp covers, that I had NEVER found a single “buyer’s bonus”….

…until yesterday….IMG_2375…the drought is over…

…these were stuffed down the side of an apple box worth of 7″ 45s….

…(one is even Too Tone “branded”)….IMG_2376…not joints or acid or cash, I’ll admit, but Dunedin is the Edinburgh of the South.

…(oh… and the moaning?….it isn’t really over).

The Southern Most Second Hand Record Shop

…a road trip to Invercargill would be incomplete without a visit to Rock ‘n’ Rolla records at 86 Spey Street….IMG_6623

…a small but interesting selection of second hand lps….as well as 7″, Cds & DVDs….

…proprietor, Jay, is a top bloke….IMG_6624

…gotta love a record shop that has it’s sound system running off a car battery…

…with a hand cranked back up in the window….
