Nearly September!

.....and very few boot sales left, so why am I starting this blog about boot sales that will all fizzle out soon? Well, I've had this yahoo group called Boot Sale Sounds for a while now and it was a place mainly to upload the strange records I'd find on my travels around boot sales,charity shops and flea markets etc. It suddenly dawned on me that a blog would be a much better idea and then I could have photos of the records and some information about them (if I can find any!). Also hoping for more feedback than the yahoo group got, which was hardly any!
So here we are. During the Autumn and Winter months the sounds will be mostly those from charity shops and culled from my collection of scratchy records and wobbly tapes.
Hopefully any copyright issues will be nil as the records for the most part are very old, very obscure and out of circulation.
But if you know of any infringement, please let me know and I will delete the offending file.
All files will be courtesy of You Send It and available for seven days or until exhausted. If you happen to like a particular track and you missed it, let me know and I'll see if I can upload it again.

Great idea, Michael! This is much better...getting to see pictures and info you have about the songs/artists!

Glad you think so Syl. I don';t know why I didn't think of it before! At least this way I can lure people over from other blogs - at Yahoo Groups they are so insular.
Any ideas for obscure artists or records you'd like to be featured here, just let me know and I'll see what I can do.

this is very clever. i have over 10k of lps and god knows how much other formats that don't take up as much room. and still i go dig in any stack of vinnyl within reach. nice to find a comrade in harms. . . good work! i think you'll get a link! well deserved too ...

You Send It files are a pretty good idea and ideal for someone like me who doesnt have a website to store files on. They only last for a week but that seems enough really. I can always upload them again if they get popular (heaven forbid!).
A link would be much appreciated sleepybomb. I like your site too and will do the same.

Thanks Angelica and weirdomusic. Not all wacky but a great proportion I expect!
