Utrecht Mega Record & CD Fair November 2014 - Part 1 - #185

Utrecht Mega Record & CD Fair November 2014 - Part 1

Just back from this event. Bought a ton of LPs and 7"s, including some beauties. As usual at record fairs, the Dr. Feelgood/Wilko Johnson related stuff was a bit thin on the ground. This is not just the Utrecht Mega Record & CD Fair, but at about every other event as well, you come up empty handed each and every time. Just goes to prove my theory, that Dr. Feelgood/Wilko Johnson is not a "collectable" band/artist. Do I care about this? I mean, except for the fact that there is never really anything on offer? Not really, I'm a lucky guy not collecting the likes of the Beatles or the Rolling Stones (or Queen etc.), thus avoiding getting into an infight with collectors worldwide about a "rare" record (sutch as the butcher cover, of which there are thousands upon thousands out there). I'm baking smaller bread.

This one, I don't know what it is and what Wilko Johnson is doing here. Sounds like announcements at a rally (I remember there was a handwritten sticker on the outer sleeve saying Amnesty). Whatever, I have no clue. Information is very much appreciated, if anyone knows more about this 7". I do guess it's a bootleg though.

I paid dearly for this one, just to find later, that I owned it already. Dutch release. Although it's in better condition than my other copy. And just to think I checked my collection on the smartphone before buying this ...

This one didn't come cheap either, but the actual 7" is a stock copy (which I already own), so there's not a lot to cheer, because of one self made radio station sleeve. Don't know where my head was, when I shelled the cash out for this one.
