Den Bosch Record Fair April 2024 - Day 3

So I am back home now with 130 singles. I was a bit downbeat in my review yesterday, but today I had a good ride. Altogether across the 3 days, I bought more, but spent less...

I had been noticing and was slightly confused by this Norwegian Who single over the years in Utrecht and Den Bosch - why was it priced so high and why was the Norwegian issue cheaper? OK the Norwegian version is called The Beatles cover (as Keith is wearing a Beatles T shirt), but the Danish wind terms of aesthetics, Still a strange Scandinavian idea to issue Bucket T as an A side. Note I only bought it as the seller halved its price for me

Also got a nice deal on the Dynamites EP along with some nice US and other singles

Now things are definitely changing. Some of the more interesting dealers are going to go more mainstream with the singles they bring. Major artists cater to the Saturday crowd and the more "niche" collectables are no longer selling as they once were.

It looks like the market will veer more to smaller more specialist fairs, which is a shame, but hey we'll see. 

In a couple of months I will be heading to a special fair I have not visited before and I will report back on that one when it happens
