glueman Records I have lent and borrowed (28) RE: Records I have lent and borrowed 11 Apr 12


A girlfriend dumped me, age 17, shortly after I'd given her Tubular Bells and a Stackridge album. I said 'I'll have my albums back in that case'. Thirty six years on I feel an inordinate amount of guilt whenever I see them and haven't played either since.

On a slightly different theme, someone on an internet forum offered his lifetime collection of classical LPs, thousands of them, buckshee and gratis to the first interested party. I assumed he was having a nervous breakdown and passed them over. Northern Soul collectors were infamous for offering to give away their records/ clothes/ property when whatever pharmaceuticals they were using turned them to closer to God, and I imagined this was something similar. Someone with less scruples had taken him up on the offer a few hours later.
