Dave And Ansil Collins

A: Double Barrel
B: Double Barrel (Version 2)
Does anyone know the real spelling of the artists? On Double Barrel it's spelt as "ansil" and on Monkey spanner it's spelt as "Ansel".

A perfect piece of 7" vinyl. Beautiful song, perfectly performed and recorded.

I know that the song is about song writer Nick Drake, but it takes me back to the time when a lot of north england was going through hard times and the reference to industry dissapearing is still relavent today in 2011.

This was around at the same time that Erasure's "Circus" was playing on my turntable and it seems that song writing was reflecting reality without losing melody and song crafting.

Even though there is a world wide recession going on at the moment, there doesn't seem to be any songs that are marking this phase of history.

Hi guys, the mech that this record is playing on is a rockola, probably around 1968 manufactured.
I have a 70's one which has a digital electronic selector but the mech is very much the same.
Rockola never made a small u.k spindle adaption, so every 7" has to be dinked to be played on these.
I even made my own dinking machine from a pillar drill and an old garrard turntable to dink my collection.
It works really well and also gives me the opportunity to properly centre any "off centre" pressings.
The centre that is on the turntable in the video is a 3 pronged affair, but again, i adapted my own mech to have a solid centre.
It helps with loading records.
