Here & Now

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on 3. Juni 2015 by Musik Department

a little new annoying trend – people asking for vinyls, naturally knowing not to find in a ”normal” record store. Like – i know impossible to find, but you don’t have by chance……or – yeah maan, i saw it on discogs for 89€, but i thought maybe…..

simple daily business. Next one, is another candidate for this category, but !! the italian Schema label made them possible for you & me.

Two times LP+CD, or 2CD of this schmankerl (i know already the questions – …..ooooh, you have only the reissues. Any chance you have the originals…….). We simple enjoy the music.


– Bagliori, 1973

LM2our last copys from RSD 2015 sadly gone, but still favourite tunes so far for this year. Remix 10Inch from this 2011 release
