Profile

Hi, I'm a DJ and science teacher from Brighton England, now living in Limassol (Lemesos) Cyprus. I started collecting records before I even went to school after being given one of those old "record players in a box", along with a handful of 7"s and a couple of LPs aged just 2 (in 1970). The first single I bought with my own money was "I Taut I Taw A Puddy Tat" by Tweety Pie and the first LP was "Songs From The Jungle book". I still have both.

Up until 2009, I DJ'd mainly private parties but DJ'd clubs from 1990 through to 2005 (with a bit of a gap in the early Noughties). I've DJ'd a huge array of styles in clubs from student 70s party nights right through to punk, metal, goth, indie, happy house, hip-hop, reggae, hell, I even DJ'd a lesbian club for a year. Partly as a result my collection is nothing if not varied.

Started adding my collection 25th April 2008. Feel free to browse it, I think it's finally complete..

Vinyl still rules (even though I'm too bone idle to actually carry it these days!)

Discogs acts that I have seen live include:

The 5-40s, 999, Aba-Shanti-I.

This seemed like a good idea when it was new. Not so much today, when I took it off the shelf and noticed the sleeve had burst, making this disc unplayable and ruining the sleeves of the records either side of it on the shelf...

You'll notice I put the word official in quote marks. As far as I know there hasn't been a version authorised by band and/or label, just a large scale release, widely available in shops that claimed to be official.

This would appear to be a UK only release. It isn't listed on any BTO discographies I can find. Down To The Line was released as a non-album single in N. America and Australasia.
