Another poll.

What do you think about the idea of pairing a classic tune with a rare or unreleased tune?

We're talking re-presses here - a tried and trusted means for some to get original tunes on vvinyl.

Before anyone asks, I've no idea what the label would be for anything that might happen.

Another angle might be boxed sets of (say) half-a-dozen of these, but I'll do another poll for that.

You hit the nail on the head Zap! While it would be great to own original pressings....sometimes it's just not possible to do this on your current budget, with what these original pressings cost nowadays!!

Great idea! Especially for us selectors spinning records!!! Cool

I'll be sorting out the list of '69 and '70 Trtojan albums Kuky, posting them up here and asking for favourites - not a poll though, as that's too restricting.

Exactly... if we own an original press... there's a bit of "proud" in owning it... but sometimes that's impossible... because of the crazy ebayers... and sellers... and fake bidders Evil or Very Mad .......... so, I dont love the same way that I do with the original, the represses, I have to say, but it's a good option for selectors and things like that. I personally preffer original.

There's no way I can ever afford originals, so I like the idea.

I would be keen on records if they were big hit songs that I could play out... rather than rare songs. Especially songs like "Tighten Up" and "Mix Up Girl" etc.

I like the idea of a selecta's series.
