From the ridiculous to the sublime.
On the way home from holiday we stopped off in Ballantrae on the A77 Stranraer to Glasgow road for a 5 minute potter in the local Thrift shop.
There were loads of CDs dumped in big piles as opposed to any neat order.99.9% was the usual tosh but I was determined not to leave without purchasing.
It wasn't easy but eventually I parted with 50p for what I thought was a Jackie Leven CD Single.
He was an interesting character and I recall listening to an excellent interview with him on Radio Scotland before he passed on.
On closure inspection (once we had fought off the sleet and returned to the car ) it turns out it was The Right to Remain Silent a 7 track EP from 1994 on Cooking Vinyl
Back home I checked it on Amazon to find it is going for 88 quid new and 35 quid second hand!
It was a bit of an Antique Roadshow moment and "No of course not. I'm not going to sell it!"
