Amazing B sides

Over the past few years I have started to collect some fantastic vinyl 45s again. Some have been bought from car boot sales for next to nothing and others I have paid a few quid for, although to be honest I have not paid more than £12 yet. I already…

    "Janis Joplin's,greatest hits. A close call between her and Aretha but to me Janis gets it every time as the best blues female singer of all time, imho. So natural, no training just lets it all out and you have to stop what your doing and listen."
