Today I received by registered mail an LP I won in an online auction: Blonde on Blonde by Bob Dylan. This was and remains, I think, an epic album. The copy I have is an original made in England. Not sure whether it’s a first pressing or not. I’m also expecting Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band shortly.

On the weekend I bought "Please Please Me" by The Beatles – an original Australian re-release from the mid-70s (in perfect condition).
The stuff is out there, but knowing where to look…?
