Charity shops are not worth looking in for vinyl round my way with the exception of Oxfam, especially Glasgow where I have scored some real goodies, guess they didn't know who Jane Siberry and Hugo Largo were or I would not have got mint copies for £2.99 each. Oxfam Dundee and Glasgow tend to be very good for old music mags. Best use nowadays is for CDs and they really do have some quite good ones all over the place, well, some not so good too. I am on the hunt for AAD's but I think the bigger shops maybe don't take them so readily as they are more likely to look old. Saw the Stooges first today though. Most common finds? The Magic Numbers is everywhere, they must have remaidered it to charity shops. I swear every shop in Dundee has a copy. And coming up very close behind them are the Kings Of Leon, who I must listen to sometime because I could have got most of their records yesterday in the course of about five minutes. Every shop had one, one had about six. The uber rich socialite and suicide of the Jazz Age, Harry Crosby, inherited a library of extremely rare books from a relative and surreptitiously placed them in small secondhand bookstores without the owners knowing so that customers might find a rare first of goodness knows what. Perhaps someday we will have his equivalent... ("Saucerful of Secrets? In Mono? Huh?") BTW, My experience re-charity shops and secondhand bookstores is the same as Dubmart's and I saw (and heard) the last secondhand bookshop owner in Dundee give up when Oxfam opened their dedicated store. Groucho's survives though, they have been at it a long, long time.
