Hi Bertie here. Just thought I'd say hello to everyone, been lurking for a little while so thought I'd better start posting.

First experience of the music was on a school trip to London in the early 70s, came across a reggae shop pounding out the sounds and spent ages outside listening in the rain! Got more into it during the punk years, then recently started to rediscover sounds I'd forgotten about.

Have to say the knowledge of you guys is amazing and Ive learnt a lot already and I'm looking forward to learning even more. The only problem is you are costing me a fortune with all the great recommendations.

Cheers,

Bertie

Hey hey what do you know. I just got back from Cleethorpes today. A bit breezy Saturday night down at Thorpe Park. I've just got back into the music in the last couple of years myself and discovering the 'older' stuff for the first time. It doesn't HAVE to be expensive, but if you've got the money and a forgiving wife then ...

Welcome and enjoy. New here meself.

Welcome Bertie.... These Forums (Pama also), made me realise just how few records I had, and how little I actually new about the music! Confused Wink

Thanks for the welcome. Was a bit wet and breezy over the weekend wasn't it?

I'm really enjoying the journey of discovering new stuff and re-finding tunes I used to know and love.

Oh and welcome yourself! Very Happy

Thanks Pete for you welcome. I know what you mean, you think you know a bit about it but soon realise there is so much to discover. Nice road to go down though isn't it. Laughing

Welcome, Bertie Smile

I left the music for a bit in the second half of the 70s, didn't buy much Reggae for years (girlfriend, house, marriage, babies), but always returned to my late 60s and 70s vinyl, in amongst the Soul-Disco and other Soul I bought a bit of.

Been back with a bang for about 15 years now...

Just goes to show that school trips can be educational. Smile
