Sundays Boot Sale
There were a number of record decks at today's boot sale this one was a JVC deck, one seller had a pair of Kam Direct Drive decks at £40 each, he also had a dual CD player with mixer for £120 another seller had CD decks, mixer, Amp & speakers.
Before I left home this morning at about 07.30 I put on factor 30 sun block so I would not get sun burn, I saw a lot of people who had taken no precautions against the sun.There were some records I brought about 40, the Boot Sale was larger than normal people were still arriving when I was leaving at about 11.00.

This record was issued in the UK in early 1973, it failed to make the UK chart.
Apologies for the lack of post's over the last few days, I will blame it on the Weather as I have to take the dog for her walk before I can start downloading the records for the posts, it has been too hot to take Muffin out at the normal time so I have been taking her later and not getting back until after 22.00 and as I have to get up for work at 05.30 it is a bit late to start posting records.
The Boot Sale at hook Road Arena is on tomorrow, but with the number that have been cancelled some of the sellers may have found other venues.

I have mislaid my chart book as yesterday gravity took charge of about 50 LP's and they crashed to the ground they also dislodged a couple of singles from one of the shelves and broke one "Gorman Sisters - Jesus Is My Santa Claus " luckily I have found another copy for less than I paid for the original one and it should be here in a week or so.
All of today's records except the Embassy are from a batch that I was given recently
