My Xmas presents ...
For Xmas, my kids gave me two vynils from Heavenly Sweetness, a small French label doing quality reissues.
The Raphael LP is very special to me because two late friends, Johnny Peret and Robert Pernet, play on it.
I won't post these LP, buy them, they are really worth the price and you will be encouraging the people at Heavenly Sweetness to continue their re-issue program of obscure and forgotten European gems. Any hope for a Babs Robert re-issue or the Sunhouse LP?
CratediggingBrussels is a pretty cool place for cratediggers. I came back to spend the Holiday Season with the family and couldn't help stopping at a couple of places with good old vynils when I went to town this Monday.
I did not leave empty-handed. Here are a few LPs I found (all at very reasonable prices, some as low as 3 €).
