buy! buy! buy!
we're off to the deepest darkest north for a week or so to cry over smouldering piers groan at shoddy football and add a crippling gas bill avoiding winter layer with the aid of too many butter pies so here's something i've been saving for a special occasion. even though i'm rubbish at special occasions. there was supposed to be 200th post disco week special a week or two back but i got distracted and missed it and now it'll just be any old week disco week which i think sounds better anyway. anyway right back to the occasion thing the every home should have one and now thanks to some lovely reissuey types they can do thing. the barbara and ernie lp. the one with the most marvelous cover you'll ever see. this one here...
i mean how could a record with a cover like that've been lost and neglected and unloved for so so long. it's a bleedin' outrage. and the stuff inside is even fabber. imagine that! blimey. it sort of feels terrible spoiling that first play for you with a little taster but hell i just can't help myself. but i'll save the best songs for you to hear for yourselves on your very own record. i wish i could be there to see your little faces when play with fire comes on. you lucky lucky people...
barbara and ernie - for you
barbara and ernie - somebody to love
now buy buy buy
