Freebird Purchases

Long weekend, empty wallet...

I went a wandering about the country this weekend and, rather than be sure of decent meals until the end of the month, I opted to go on a bit of a spending spree in the capital so this week's Purchases post will come in two parts with the first post/purchases courtesy of Dublin's Freebird Records. I promised myself ages ago that I would only pick up a copy of #1 Record on vinyl, and lo and behold the Secret Book & Record Shop (now home to FB Records of course) finally let me get a proper listen to Alex Chilton and co.'s 1972 seminal disc which would go on to provide a blueprint for nineties alt-country crooners. Fitting then that Being There turned out to be the record's bag partner upon leaving the shop:

Big Star - #1 Record
