What’s New – July 1, 2014

That was an unintended long break between posts. My job hours mushroomed and zapped all my energy and time from me, unfortunately. However, neither the blog nor I am dead yet – fortunately.

The second part of the ‘Beatles on Dittolino Discs’ also got a complete re-write today, as it had been created when vinylegs was offline.

    I’m recoup wearing from surgery and pretty much stuck at home. So I pass the hours by purchasing “rare” vinyl.
    So far in 2 weeks, I’ve picked up 10 new titles and all on colored, swirl or splatter vinyl! I guess there is an “up side” to following doctors orders. 😉

    • Mick said:

      Hi Roger, interested to know what you’ve managed to pick up? Were they expensive?

      Hope you get well soon and away from temptations might save you some $$’s!

    Welcome back. Take care & don’t over do it.

    • Thank you. The problem is that the research for each post takes quite a bit of time.

    Thanks. I believe all the regular readers of this blog realize how much time and work it takes to run this site, and we greatly appreciate the effort. Do you have any of these books? They are Beatles, Dylan and Stones dedicated, but they are very detailed. Could find helpful information them
    1. Raging Glory by Dennis Liff
    2. Rolling Stones Bootleg Bible by Dieter Hoffman
    3. Cancelled: The Beatles Unreleased Recordings by Mr. Kite

      Actually there is a book out chronicling all of the Van Halen Vinyl Bootleg LP’s,
      up to about 8 years ago. Its available on “Word Press”.
      I was unaware that there was even anything, like that out there.
      So I ordered it, and was enthralled by all the pictures,
      of the Front/Back covers along with pictures of the Vinyl,
      and back stories of how they came to be.along with other details of,
      numbers pressed.
      I was surprised when I looked inside, to see that the author had dedicated his book to ME! 😉

      • And again I see I am just no $$$ hungry enough, giving away all this info for zip, zilch, nada… Well, who are you? VH taper extraordinaire? Mega collector? Sound guy who procured many soundboards. close associate of the band… ?

        • Roger said:

          Wow….Is there something I’m missing here? I love collecting vinyl.
          I’ve been collecting for 37 years.
          Not just VH but many other classics rock artists. So I’m trying to understand the “tone” of your reply/question Spinalcrackerbox?

      • Well, who is BM, that the book was dedicated to him, that’s all. … I hope the first part was clear.

    • I don’t have any of these but I have others, especially Beatles-related. Still very much looking for Beatlegmania Vol. 1 by John C. Winn. Would love to find a book discussing TMOQ releases in detail or on bootlegging in Japan but I have a feeling they have yet to be written – if that even ever happens, as our generation thins out.

    Thanks. If the book is on the Internet, it would be nice to know the URL for the site.
