The Byrds and more…

Those of you that made it along to out Box of Records event will have witnessed Steve treating us to some of his 45’s.

We convinced him (it didn’t take much) to curate September’s event, where he treated us to an evening based around The Byrds.

We had a good mix of tunes, including the work of individual members of the group, especially Gene Clark and Gram Parsons.

Thanks to everyone that also brought their Byrds related tunes along to add to the evening’s musical offering.

Saltaire Festival

To celebrate the tenth Saltaire Festival the organisers of Record Club selected 10 vinyl albums that they think everyone should hear at least once in their lifetime.

You voted for your favourite, and we squeezed the top four into a great evening of music and chat.

The pakora was particularly strong, so we’ll try to make sure that it’s a bit easier on the pallet next time!

Photo’s should appear in the gallery soon…

Very pleased that this made it into the Saltaire Festival Event. A big one from David’s teenage years. Listened to on a personal stereo much of the time back then, but great to hear it on vinyl again.
