Excellent! I hope that record's being recorded in that image... I could use a nice Retro upgrade of 3052 ;)

amazing! need that one still. actually i need most of those Boosey's. if you ever should recommend...let's say 5 from the catalogue, which ones would it be?

also great to hear about a almost complete KPM collection. i've been cherry picking over the years and have about 40 that i consider the best ones. still not finished my want list though...

by the way, have the two you are missing. i shoud send them to you for the picture only  ;)

Iíve been buying again. Got a handful of Sonoton the other day and today I got a stash of 35 mixed LPs.  Will post pics in a bit. Nothing amazing and mainly gap fillers and replacements for scratchy records. Chuffed though. Looking forward to dropping the needle on them later today! :-D

I bought this lot the other day.    I often buy things I already have by mistake and did re-buy a Sonoton (only £4) and The 'Big City Heat' ST LP (£2-£3) so no major harm done.
I got a MINT KPM 1168 'Drama' which I was chuffed about.  I got my original copy mid 90's and it's a but scratched up- this looks unplayed with mint cover.  It was £40 but I got some knocked off.
This guy had I think almost a full set of Brutons (both Drama Montage were there at £40 and £50, and again MINT).  Every BRM, BRK, BRL, etc.  I didn't see BRS 'Vibes' which I would have bought.
I should have gotten BRG 21 as I do need this but daren't get it in case I did already have it-- there's one on Discogs for £12 so I could splash out and get it just to fill the gap.

BRB 2, BRO8 & BRR 2 are all fillers I needed - I also needed BRR 18 but it was something like £20 so not worth it to me and I left it.
The BRM I already had but mine is battered so I couldn't resist.
I bought the Spectrum blind because I know I have a pile but don't know which ones-- not checked yet but don't think I had these late teens ones. They were cheap anyway.
The more expensive ones, like the Conroy are all like new and some great fillers for me; and some I think I have never even heard.

The three Selected Sounds were fillers- nothing amazing (1018 and 1019 were two I think).
There were some good KPMs there (can't remember which but I didn't look at the prices cos I have them already).

This is on the back of buying a few Sonotons last week so I'm slowly filling those gaps too.

What a haul! Again, only in the UK... desolate for us here in the US.

If you're up for it, I'd love to hear two of those Conroys... BMLP 122 and BMLP 176. Never had rips of those before.

What beauties, congrats on the haul! Funny to see one of those EAPs, it's been long since I've last thought about them. The Spectrum and Terrific Music LPs look nice too. What's that teal/white/black one at the bottom?

- I'm with Stack, you Brits are lucky!

I can't remember- looks like film strips with sprockets... just been to look but couldn't see it-- they've mostly gone onto the shelves with the others now.  If I remember I'll come back....  ;)
Above the claude Larson is an 80's Major and above that, the white one is Telemusic Synthesis 2.

amazing haul Retronic!

you have a crazy completist attitude. since my space limited i do cherry picking with most of the labels nowadays. i would say that my Bruton collection is the most extensive one.

would love to seemsome spines of yours (and of course of some other forum members!)

Look at those pictures.  That is so cool.  Like a museum or shrine.  I love it!
