Some LPs from Cousin Silas' personal collection no1
Last weekend I spent an overnight at Cousin Silas' house for our now annual waageekfest. It was a pleasure to see him and Kevin Lyons, Tim Jones, Colin Blake and 'Bing Satellites' aka Brin Coleman. It was a wonderful period of time, one that flew in way too fast.
An added bonus of making the trip was to pick up a 'few' LPs from Cousin Silas. He couldn't pass on his records to his family and didn't want to skip them ... at least until I had a look to see what I wanted.
I came away with approximately 200 LPs and a few singles too ... music from The Rolling Stones, Captain Beefheart, Tangerine Dream, Kraftwerk, Miles Davis, and Pink Floyd ... to name but a few.
Over the next wee while I'm going to work my way through the pile and post a pic of each album. Here's what I've enjoyed so far:
Pink Floyd - "Wish You Were Here" ... in original packaging.
Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band - 'Trout Mask Replica" ...
David Bowie - "Heroes" ... and ... "Lodger"
Pink Floyd - "Meddle" ...
Kraftwerk - "Autobahn" ...
Tangerine Dream - "70 - 80" ... a 4 LP monster of a box set.
I'll post more as I work my way through the piles ... Tx
