The Halt Bar Incident

Many moons ago Justin Currie and his sideburns attempted to push past me to get to the bar in the Halt, Woodlands Road, Glasgow ............ they were not successful

Their most famous song is well worth listening to if only for the reference of "American business men snapping up Van Gogh's for the price of a hospital wing"

His solo album - The Great War is also worh a listen

New Kid on the Blog

Here goes
The idea of this blog is to share music I have discovered in Charity Shops.
When real life kicks in and you can't afford to buy as much music as you like or used to you are faced with a number of options
  1. stop buying
  2. buy less
  3. buy less, hit the library and the charity shops
I've gone for option 3
My first offering was a pleasant surprise No Angels - Music from the Second TV Series purchased in a charity shop in Portree, Skye

A soul collection but not the usual suspects.
Some really good staff and well worth a listen.
Also from memory one of  the better TV hospital series.
