Indoor flea market today. Over 140 stalls, and only one good seller of CD and DVD.

I got 11 CDs and 1 DVD for a fiver:

G Love & Special Sauce - Electric Mile (Okeh)
Vera Lynn - The White Cliffs of Dover (Decca Eclispe remaster, annotated)
Thin Lizzy & Philip Lynott - The Danish Collection (2 CD slim, Universal)
Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan - Rahat (Rick Rubin prod., Columbia)
Bobby Vinton's Greatest Hits (Curb)
Stevie Wonder - Natural Wonder (2 CD slim, live, Motown)
Cypress Hill - s/t (Cypress Hill)
Elton John - 21 at 33 (scarce?)
ELO - Zoom /(Jeff Lynne prod., Epic)
Mary Chapin Carpenter - time*sex*love* (Columbia)
Cypress Hill - Stoned Raiders (Columbia)

I am not sure about the G Love, doesn't leap at you. Rapping is good, though, but the singing, meh.

Can
Captain Beefheart
Beatles
Fall
Velvet Underground

No CDs today, but I did get a lovely Taschen coffeetable book on the movies from my favorite decade, the 1950s. Richly illustrated and covers 100 masterpieces. Mine for £6, amazons for £80.

They have different language versions on sale at varying prices, but you may be right. Worth it, even at list price.

A couple of weeks ago I found an EX condition single by an Australian punk/metal band called Invader, 'Don't Blame it On Me' / 'Anastasia' from late 1980. My friend Tim who owns his own record shop tells me it's renowned as a punk rarity and last time he sold it he made USD $700. My copy cost me a dollar.

Then I went back a week later and found another copy in even better condition. Nuts.

I do that with comics - the European graphic albums. Buy them for 50 p or £1 in good nick and trade them in for £3 - 5, or even more. Helps finance that hobby.

I do the same, I buy doubles of good records and books I already own or don’t need and trade them for stuff I want. Or just give them to friends. Helps keep this collecting hobby/addiction manageable.
