So the moral of my little story is this - you can buy records online all day to your hearts content and cop some rare ish in the process. But if you want some real fun, take that encyclopedia of musical knowledge that is your head, grab a portable and head out into your neighbouring area in search of likely targets. Remember it's a numbers game and the harder you search the more you will find.
It goes without saying that I went all out across London town this week in the beautiful sunshine in search of the perfect beat. And yep I found a few bargain records like I always do, have a look at the photo below. All these for less than fifty quid, and yes that is an OG INCREDIBLE BONGO BAND LP and a promo DEF JAM 45 of "Black Steel In The Hour Of Chaos". Switch off your computer and get out there!
