Vinyl at Spitalfields Market

Postby bedward » Wed Dec 15, 2004 1:59 pm

Had a beef massaman curry for lunch at the "food stalls" in Spitalfields market. Also had a good walk through the music vendors..plenty vinyl but not enough time to browse properly...

What other London spots for vinyl trawling?

I don't think you want to know that I'm now working on a price-calculator to determine local access pricing for bandwidth in Asia pacific....which our company sells to MNCs seeking to reduce costs by outsourcing production to countries where labourers are not free to sell their labour globally

its truly ****

I've never found the stalls at Spitalfields too much to write home about Bedders and I'm afraid that the locations of the really cheap places with extra rare records are a closely guarded secret that London Baffers cannot reveal to anyone!
Pilot ;0)

Right Pilot, especially as most have closed now. I don't think you can see a decent selection of second hand reggae for sale south of the river at all anymore.
I have no idea what happens up there in bandit country.

Depends what your buying. For 80's onwards stuff you can still find tunes for a few quid but for most earlier stuff its mostly ebay prices in London. You can strike lucky of course but I can't say I've had a serious result in a couple of years now.

I buy most of my tunes off the internet these days.

They've never really had any kind of shops in South London as most people down there are peasants and bartering is still the main kind of economic transaction (it was two bushels of wheat for a pre-issue last thing I heard) :wink:

doesnt honest jons have good things at good prices anymore?

as ive told you about 50 times already (but i still think about it all the time)
last year in london i picked up

earth and stone kool roots on cha cha for 20 GBP (double LP and all killer no filler)

freddy mckay's creation on plant music for 15 GBP\

blevy's englishman for 15 GBP (might sound a lot.. but represses cost 10 to 12 GBP i think))

errol mais - babylon a fight down youth / michael prophet woman i love 5 GBP

and left lots more there at similar prices.. 12s for 5-6 GBP (such as dennis brown's should i on laser, earl cunningham's "what kind of woman" on warrior are 2 i remember which i still cry about not buying then..)

is that not the case anymore?

Keep walking, and when you fall into a big wet thing, you've found it!

Apparently one body is dragged out of the Thames each week. Such is the human tragedy of North London refugees desperately trying to cross over to the promised land.

North London - that's like a euphemism for something isn't it?

Spitalfields record fair first and third Wednesday of the month. Sometimes I get nish others I get some real results. 10 Commandments (Woman to Man) for £2.50, l2 weeks back I got a pile of decent Thompson Sound 7s and some Eek A Mouse on Black and White, Spliff Tail for £2 and some solid early 80s Frankie Paul, Michael Rose, King Kong etc all for £2 - £1. Oh yeah, also got Gregory's Rock On for £4. Most expensive tune of the day!
in every category my subject is version
