Its not mine,honest!!!
- I was reading the members charts,and was going to post my own but I
kinda like certain things artists do but not others(much the same as
everyone I suspect)so I concluded(except Hybrid)I dont really have
any favourite artists,more millions and millions of favourite songs
by millions of people.Anyway my Q? is,In my personal collection I
have certain albums which make me think,Why the hell have I got
this?yet I know deep down I think its good I hate to admit it.My
perfect example is my Enya album(I can hear the laughter already).I
was listening to it in work today in the belief that I would doubt
the reason I ever bought it and go and have a labotomy,but I still
thought Hmmmmm I quite like this in a weird sort of way.Does anyone
on list have anything like this in their collections i.e.Things they
want never disclosed-Go on for a laugh,shame yourselves.TIM(cant
quite believe I just told 190 people with great musical knowledge
that I have a fetish for Enya.Looking forward to Ally taking the piss
- Hehe...ok...my embarassing one's are: Kyle Minougue (I was young),
Jason Donocan (see last one) and The Lighthouse Family! :)
I was struggling to think of some bands / artists I like that aren't
dancey...so, I'm at work at the moment, where I keep a few CDs - as
we've got a big stereo (I work for a web agency)...here's what I can
see infront of me...

Phew!! I think a good 20 or so more CDs are on other people's desks
too...my others are at home. I've just realised I buy too many CDs -
got loads more on vinyl too. I have a problem.

close to buying much more ... I have a problem too
(and it's called Central London record shops :-/ ).
Who has a little stack accumulating by his record deck
which represents only purchases made in the last few
weeks, which is worryingly large ... (and naturally
contains a high percentage of Hybrid stuff ;-)

comment coming from somebody who went to University owning less than
three hundred CDs and left University owning more than three thousand.
Statistically that's about 7 a day. Even when you count the ones I got
as promos for editing the student magazine, or the cheap bargain bin
ones that I scoured for around Leeds, that's still a way to account for
most of my student loans.
As for regrets... not really. Among my collection are quite a number of
CDs that the musical fashion police would use as a reason to lock me up
for a very long time, but in most cases I bought them for at least some
reason. Actually I'm so embarrassed by some of them that I won't be
mentioning them... but personal favourites from a novelty record point
of view include;
The French Smurfs ("Le Schtrumpf") performing "Rhythm Of The Night";
A Dutch children's TV presenter performing a Dutch version of Spice
A Wombles double album, given to me by the main Wombles composer/singer
himself when I set up a drumkit for one of their performances (that's
...nah, that's it. I don't think I'll admit to any more. :-)
- I regularly DJ weddings, and occasionally birthdays and school balls
so I can easily claim that a lot of the stuff that I own is for "the
work", but, truth be told, I seldom buy stuff I don't personally
like, so, let the ridicule begin:
John Denver's Greatest Hits (I'm sorry, I like 'Annie's Song')
The Wombles - Remember You're a Womble (Regression therapy?)
Kylie Minogue - Confide in Me (I'm not ashamed to say I liked all of
Kylie's stuff from this period, 'Put Yourself in My Place', etc.)
Prince Greatest Hits I, II & III (I get s**t for this all the time).
...and probably loads of other stuff that I can't think of right now
(It's been one of those mornings, already). Basically pick a recent
charting single and I probably have it.
As far as the CD-holics Unanymous thing goes I have over 3000 CDs and
at a very rough estimate have bought about 300 CD-singles in the last

99p CD single clearance :-) ... everything else is
costing me a fortune tho, as if student loan is ever
enough anyway (I reckon next year's evaluation will
say that I can have less than this year, which will
probly give me about �20 a week to live off after rent
- I spend more than that in records :-/ )
As for regretful purchases, I'm currently listening to
Delerium - Innocente, and am still trying to work out
whether I regret it or not (I think the Deep Dish mix
might have given it a reprieve)

Innocente. I like it...I usually get quite bored of progressive
stuff, but this tune is niiiccceee...

been better than the original?"
Love Delerium though I do, and I DO, I think all of the remixes
of 'Silence' were very good, especially as they all highlighted
different aspects of the original and none really fall into the same
musical category as the original. Ferry's remix of 'Heaven's Earth'
was quite lovely, too, the Quay South (? some compass-point, or
other, anyway) Remix, on the other hand, was diabolical, but then
given that one half of that duo was responsible for Madison Avenue
(his name escapes me for the moment) it was unlikely to be a raging
success. Then there's the Rabbit in the Moon's Divine Gothic Disco
Mix & Dub of Euphoria (Firefly), very nice indeed, but then one would
expect little else of Christophere and Co., if in doubt check their
remix of Sarah McLachlan - superb:D

Dish mixes, and the Lost Witness mix certainly wasn't
worth the effort. Better than the Members Of Mayday
thing I bought (which was what I listented to directly
afterwards). Thank god for PVD's intervention on the b
side, is all I can say about that. Obviously Kriminal

- Hey y'all
I'm going to take on this university challenge, when I get to UMIST, as my
collection is rather paltry, when it only started growing since July 99.
My collection is only worth �200, with my singles worth �90, with only one
Distinct'ive single, but only two Hybrid
remixes (well three if you count the two BT remixes).
The fact is that of my albums, I've only bought 1 of them, the rest have
been bought for me, by either my sisters, or my parents. Nice, huh?
Anybody know any decent places in Manchester where I can buy records?
On a final note, have the remixes of Theme From Wide Angle been
discontinued?? About three copies were sitting in vinyl section of HMV in
Bradford, and I went in on Tuesday and they are longer there. I'm aware
Okay, I don't own a turntable but I was going to buy TFWA to keep, until I
got a turntable.

>Anybody know any decent places in Manchester where I can buy records?You're in luck (musically) and you're in danger (financially); there are
*loads* of good record shops in Manchester, so much so that every once in
a while I travelled from York to Manchester just to record shop. There are
almost too many to list, but the cream of the crop in my opinion (for CDs)
- Vinyl Exchange (amazing shop- I've gone in there and bought 50 CDs in
one go in the past)
- Polar Bear Records
- The selection of shops in Afflecks Palace & The Colliseum (sp?) (two
hippy-type alternative shopping areas; where you go in Manchester if you
want to buy scented candles, novelty condoms, flared jeans with
hand-embroidered flowers on them, and bongs... oh yeah, and some promo CDs)
- HMV- the one on Market Street often gets in bucketloads of promo-only
12"s that really aren't meant to be for sale, and almost perpetually has a
99p sale on CD singles as well. Don't bother with Virgin or Our Price
- Pop over to Stockport to go to Direct Zone Music if you're looking for
chart stuff; it only stocks chart albums & singles, but it stocks them at
very low prices.
- I'd like to add to that list, my friend's shop...
Can't remember the address and they don't have a web site - but they
are very very good and are quite well known.

just off Picadilly (down the street with Nobles' Amusements on the
corner) and they have loads of promos and stuff in there at decent
prices. You've also got Picadilly Records near there, which sells
mostly indie and stuff (but with a nicely-stocked dance vinyl
selection) and Eastern Bloc too
