Since I took early retirement a couple of years ago I no longer have the disposable income to squander huge amounts of money on rare and obscure ’60s garage and psychedelic records.
To compensate, I spend a lot of time searching for cheap records in charity shops. I don’t mind taking a chance and spending a couple of quid on an album. It’s still quite a buzz finding vinyl junk.
I’ve decided to begin a new series on my blog where I’ll focus on a track from a budget label release, remaster a FLAC directly from the record, create a YouTube video and investigate / research the performer and album under the spotlight.
My new series will be called “Budget Label Curios.”
Who knows what I’ll uncover, the music may be delightful to your ears or it could make you want to bang your head against the nearest brick wall to make the pain go away.
