– A tear and a smile, 1975 from the Album


this years Record Store Day was reaaally a pleasure for us.

a tear, because of the delivery rate from most of the releases we ordered. Second tear (not really) to this Berlin colleague, who placed on saturday 4p.m. the U2 RSD release on ebay for 100€ – buy it know –  option.

a smile to all visitors, conversations, friendly words from friends and sometimes secret friends

– Secret Friend, 1980 CD only bonus track from the Album


this bittersweet tune is a romantic 7Inch from super young Marianne Rosenberg. Lyrics – she wrote times after times love letters on pink paper to Paul, but he never answered.

– Mr. Paul McCartney, 1970 from the 7Inch
