My record collection
#020: Britta Phillips - Luck or Magic (LP)

This is the first of two copies of Britta’s lovely Love or Magic LP - this is the first one that arrived with a scratch at the beginning of side one - I complained… I don’t always bother but… it was a pretty bad scratch. Britta sent me a new copy, and thankfully didn’t expect the return of the old one so… I have two copies.

The price of all these big orders shipped from the US is rather making my eyes water - I paid $91 for a Britta signed super bundle - which included a CD, an LP and a T-shirt… I think that was all. I was very tempted by the Bang Bang lathe cut single but decided I couldn’t justify the price for a one-track single (that being a lathe cut would possibly sound a bit underwhelming). Britta kindly shared a WAV of the song on Dean & Britta’s patreon… which I’m sure sounded better! Still do kind of regret it though.

Actually I suspect it was the $91 that triggered me into complaining about the scratch!
