definitely the best find of the day was the psychotic reaction LP by the count five. both cover and record are in a stunning near mint condition, and the record also plays near mint! what a blast :-)
i also had some nice chats with record dealers and enjoyed meeting some friends there. jaarbeurs days are definitely the best days to look forward to each year :-)

in other news, i finally received the two 7″ record racks from i-cubes (i first tried to order them about a year ago. the company would not reply to the several emails i sent them (on their website you can only order to UK mainland). then, after calling them on the phone, i received and paid their invoice on 9th october – and the racks arrived last week… too bad this is the only company manufacturing these things). i had ordered the white one two or three years before without any problems; very weird.
anyhow, now i can throw away all those shoe boxes i used as an interim solution and still have room for about 250 45s! :D


i also bought some 45s carrying cases, because in a nearby town there is now a regulars table for vinyl buffs at a place called ‘rekorder’. i have been there three or four times and its really nice – its not limited to any specific genres, everybody can bring their records and play them. this event is every second wednesday and i really like it, because its a nice way to share all the great music one has collected over the years :-)

and last but not least i am happy to tell you that there are now only 12 pages left to translate in my bachelor thesis. i might not finish them this year (lots of work to do at work…), but i will get very close :-)
