Good find on that Millions' 45 Joe - that's become quite in-demand.
Serendipitous, Marc - just happened across it in the second box of about 200 singles...there were 5 such boxes of Reggae, but I didn't have the time or inclination to go through them all.

Cost me 7.50.

All of those singles I bought were in thick white cardboard sleeves (the Soul ones were a pound a throw) and the JA ones also had a clear thick plastic sleeve with the price stuck on.

I'm not her biggest fan, but like some songs - a later check of my database revealed that I didn't have "DOOB..." at all, so I'm pleased to have it now Wink

Blimey Joe - shame it's not just up the road! Mind you, Crazy Beat probably has about 20 boxes but 70% is all `90s and 2000s.

Fortunately these were mostly 70s, there were a few Blue Beats in there, as well as early Islands.

Labels like Ethnic Fight, some Magnets, some re-presses all abounded, but aside from 1 or 2 Pama Supremes, I don't recall much from the Pama "family" of labels.

Joe,Excellent haul of vinyl purchases. Cool
Thanks, Colin.

The Soul singles cost me a quid each (one reason I only bought 10 is because I was unsure of the sound quality and didn't want to go full tilt and then find I'd landed a bunch of bacon sizzlers!) and the sound quality is a bit half and half on several - although worth a quid - and pretty good on the others - especially the excellent SAM STONE - a tune I recognised by title, but couldn't place...for a quid it was worth a punt.

The copy of MURMURING isn't that good quality as my other copy - the A side is probably worse, but the B side is better!

Some great pieces there, Colin.

I remember buying the Tony Clarke circa 1975 when it come on a Chess moulded label reissue (with the classic LANDSLIDE on t'other side)
