Inspired by PopTodd's "dug out an old mix" post...

Two months ago I sent a mix CD to a friend. What's remarkable is that it completed an exchange that commenced 18 years ago.

I was fortunate enough to travel to London while in high school. I was also fortunate enough to work in a record store while in high school. I'm one of the luckiest people on earth because the manager of said chain store has kickin' taste in music. So, when adolescent me was going to London and asked for some suggestions to seek at The Record And Tape Exchange and others, said manager put together this tape.

It took me 17 years to acquire every song on this tape, the last single purchased on-line from a store in Germany last year--this had been a grail-quest for me since 1986.

I still have the tape, a TDK SA-X 90

If you have an original copy of 'Blue Boy' that's worth quite a lot of money (well for a record anyway....don't go out and buy a new house or anything).

The most valuable records I own are my Orange Juice singles you could maybe get £30-40 for them depending on the condition.

Mine are all in the standard brown or black Postcard company sleeve, although "Poor Old Soul" does have the postcard insert (as does my Josef K "Sorry For Laughing" and Aztec Camera "Just Like Gold".

Would love to find a copy of "Falling and Laughing" or any pic sleeves (AC's "Mattress of Wire" is the only Postcard Pic Slv I have).

Cheers!
