Bought yesterday via discogs - Pete Green's Fleetwood - Live in Boston. Just some of the numbers from a 3 day gig there in 1970. Wasn't released until 85 - take a listen on You Tube. Hendrix - yes, Clapton - yes and all the great Jazz guitarists - yes but Pete and not just on his number - Black Magic Woman.

Some people think it was a shame he really tripped out in San Francisco, others think it's a shame that the rest of Fleetwood could only think of the money. Anyway that was the end of the Fleetwood we knew and rocked on.

Live In Boston - arrived today only 4 days from Germany.

The sleeve NM but the vinyl described as NM wasn't - it is Mint - €7.90 + €4 post. For those who don't live anywhere near s/hand record/CD shops, €4 postage is cheap and a mint LP from 1986 for €7.90, that's what I call good value.

If you havn't tried discogs for vinyl or CDs - check it out. I'm sure a sheiss gebert moment is waiting for me down the road but not yet.

Ok, thank you. The infrequency of posting here with my dull memory causes a loss of continuity, but being Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac, it should be a good one. Enjoy.

Greg,
my opinions on the social media sites and those who feel the need to 'live' online are best left unsaid but there are parts of You Tube that are informative, very useful and fulfill the original intention of people like Berners-Lee.

I well remember going often to Rick Branson's second record shop by the Clock Tower in Brighton to check out a new LP before buying - he had about 4 sets of cans where you could sit and listen.

You Tube Music is better, you can sit and listen in the comfort of your own home. It has stopped me from buying LPs that I 'thought' I should have for nostalgia reasons and opened my ears to those I definitely do want - Live in Boston is one such. For those who still buy CD, there is a 3 CD set of virtually the whole 3 day gig. Like Woodstock, I wish I could have been there.

Thank you, Stuart. Yes I probably concur with your thoughts on social media and agree about the benefits of YouTube. I now have a lifetime subscription to roon, so I listen to a lot of streamed music and roon is great for introducing me to new previously not explored artists. I like it in a very big way and consider it a good investment. IMHO, sound quality is better than CD and other streamed sources but, there is still something special with vinyl.
