Utrecht Record Fair April 2013
So here we go again...Always hoping to make new discoveries whilst wading through box after box and crate of singles. I have no wants list as such; purchases are solely based on opportunity and the mood at the time...so who knows.
Now I received the following comment on my Belgian shopping trip back in February. Of course it was sent by “anonymous”. It appears that this person feels I should refrain from sharing how I actually find this stuff. Now I am not going to write about my ebay purchases, but half the fun is the journey and digging for gems. I know my shopping trips have led to others making the trip to Utrecht as well as going to the record shops I have written about. So what do you think? Should I keep quiet? Could my ego take it? Anyhow here is the comment from the prat himself.
Don't you think it's a snobby ego-trip to post photos of records you buy? Nobody like you - the famous collector of obscure 70's 45s! WOW! Buy records - make trade/sell list - that's OK. But better keep posting details about obscure records with sounds on your great blog, than your shopping (ego)trips and comments about record shops. And what is an expensive used record? Used records have no price - the price is what the record collector is ready to pay.
