Would just like to say hi to all of the Reggaefiles out there am a bit of a forum novice not really something i do on a regular basis.
I love Reggae it has been part of my life for a while now.
I manage a small CD & DVD shop more of a kiosk really and spend the majority of my meagre wage on Reggae music. Being at the bottom of the world it is quite exspensive at times to be able to afford all the imports because everything is an import down here.
I dont have the cash to be able to afford vinyl i would if i could lots more of the music i want seems to be available on vinyl at quite a cost so the Trojan double Anthology's are the best way for me to get a good number of tracks for not to much cost.
I very much enjoy reading the posts on all the forums i look at such as this one the Blood & Fire & also the Roots Archive forums. Some great topics come up.
Anyway i hope to make contact with kindred brethrens.

Take it easy.
Karl NZ Very Happy

Welcome mate. I lost my job this year so I've had a bit of a break, but now I buy a couple of cheap records (50p - 4) every week.

Welcome to the Trojan Forum Karl Smile

I still buy quite a bit of cheap vinyl (99p-8 on a 45) but at the rate at which Reggae items on e-bay are seemingly drying up (free domestic postage, extortionate e-bay fees etc) then it won't be for much longer. And then of course whatever decent bits on there will go ever further skyward in price:roll:

Welcome aboard Karl, i don't buy much vinyl at the moment either. Just enjoy the music in whatever format you can get to hear it. Plenty of music links posted on here too.

Always good to talk to a Kiwi! Cool

Welcome aboard! Cool
Aukland and Wellington had a killer Garage/Mod/Psychedlic Rock scene back in the '60's. Might I suggest you scour all record selling venues...buy all that up, then sell it on Ebay to support your Reggae fix. That stuff goes for big bucks elsewhere...and with it being at your doorstep...I'm guessing it's got to be cheaper in NZ than anywhere else!

Hi all thanks for the welcome's. Wink
I do wish i could even find a decent source for vinyl but for me it has been just to easy to get a lot of the music i want from Plastic it still sounds good what ever format its in.
Another reason its hard is yes its easy to buy on auction sites etc. but the import costs are very prohibitive. Still all this does not stop me realy enjoying what music i do get hold of.

Its not about format its about the sound my freinds! Very Happy

New Zealand consists of 2 islands (primarily), and is about as far away from anywhere as you can get! Surprised
