My ONE negative feedback is from a disgruntled seller who listed the item under the incorrect submission, refused to accept this error and also sent the record in thin, flimsy packaging that caused damage. Somehow, this was my fault! Everyone else I have bought from was pleased with their transactions with me and my feedback comments because they understood how to correctly list their items and knew how to package them to ensure safe transit. I gratefully thank those respectful people.

Interested in all things collectable (picture disc, coloured vinyls, boxed sets, promos etc.). Eclectic tastes from Disco and Hi-NRG to rock, pop, chart, indie, Celtic, ambient etc. etc!

How do you know that it's not 24k? It's an MCA release and states on both the hype sticker and the reverse of the tray liner that it's 24k gold. I doubt that MCA would have lied about that. To my ears, this sounds absolutely superb.

Amazingly, some people think that because there's more than one artist, it's a compilation. This isn't. It contained no previously released music.

Quite a strange 'clear' this; it has a very faint yellow/green tinge to it, rather like the 'Coke bottle' type of clear vinyl that's become popular recently.

I wonder why "He Knows You Know" is listed as 'edited 12" version' when it's the same length as the original 12" and LP versions?
Marillion - Sugar Mice
posted a review of Marillion - Sugar Mice. 10 days ago
I'm sure that when people consider the classic Fish era Marillion, they think of the monster hit "Kayleigh". However. To my mind, 'Sugar Mice' simply epitomises everything about Marillion from that period. Superb composition, lush instrumentation and... See full review

The printed wording in the 'picture' that accompanies this release is misspelled - 'e' missing from both "been" and "sleeping".

I think these coloured versions are very suspicious. They are recent additions and in all my years collecting Bush, I've never seen anything other than the black versions since 1980. And they don't have the runout matrices of the black vinyl equivalents.

I think this cassette is rather suspicious. Too little detail given and featured. What tracks? Length? Same both sides? And why not Harvest or Capitol-EMI?

The British Airways airline ticket from London to Paris was in the name of Mylène Farmer and signed to cabin crew by her. It was a straight photograph of the item and it absolutely did not appear in any way altered.

OK so some people have found this pressing to be 'noisy', and not in the good way! I was sceptical about this release based upon the pressing plant used - as I've commented on another review, they can be very hit 'n' miss. I'm pleasantly surprised!... See full review

The B side "Thinking of you" was MASSIVE when the single was flipped by the DJs in the UK. And soon, it was released in it's own right... and so it should've! This was so a time when Rodgers and Edwards B side tunes were 200% better than anything... See full review

Shalamar? Surely this is merely Howard providing vocals to a track that was composed for a movie. No Jody, no Jeffery, just Howard. Probably the only reason that Shalamar was credited was to give some sort of kudos.
