In May, we played the vital vinyl that you’d rescue from the flames if your house was on fire.
For this event the turntable was at the mercy of the Record Club audience/members/punters. What would they save and why?
We had 8 people lined up, including: @boemason, @LeeGoater, @Mezandy, @Danbliboos, Nagbea, Paul, Brian, and Bill, bringing along about 30 minutes worth of music on vinyl, to show, tell and play for the rest of us.

This is the album that gave us the title for the House is on Fire event in May 2012.
It will probably never get played in full at the record club – more’s the shame. I only got this recently, but had it on tape from about 1987 I reckon.
