Blimey, the
stuff that passes for matrimonial music these days. I went to a wedding on
Saturday, a lovely do, and while I was expecting Daydream Believer and a
selection from
Grease, perhaps, the
song played immediately after the happy couple’s first dance was this
. Which filled
the dancefloor and was highly refreshing. There was also The Time Warp from
The Rocky Horror
Show
, which even I
succumbed to. My own wedding didn’t have music, but my (deeply romantic)
answerphone answered with this on the
day
. I’d be
interested to hear about the unlikely songs you played at your wedding or heard
at someone else’s: mail them in to at
rc.editorial@metropolis.co.uk. The best
replies will appear here next week.

We’re trying to finish
the next issue of the magazine, which will feature a special report on the 200
rarest records now – this time around there are a surprising amount of new
entries in the list, drawn from the Rare Record Price Guide 2014. Over
the years I have heard a certain amount of harrumphing about these lists, saying
that most of these records barely exist or cannot be afforded. But these are the
gold standard for our hobby, not the day-to-day items. And I am willing to bet
that you own at least one or two of them if you are a serious collector, and
many psych and prog fans will own more as these genres are at the heart of such
lists. Me, I own three, and I have a label for one more! But I am determined to
keep collecting… until I own at least four. Also coming up in the next issue:
Bruce Foxton on The Jam and SLF, and Crosby, Stills and
Nash
, the interview, plus a whole heap more.

I’d best get on with
it. Hope you have a great week, and happy record hunting.

Best Wishes,
