• 7" vinyl

    slimduncan's journal posting "7 Inches Part 1 ..." describes a far more extensive collection of those little pieces of black plastic than my collection boasts, but in the spirit of openness shown in that post, I thought that I too would expose my 7" soul.

    My vinyl collection period stretched from 1980 to 1990. It began when my sister and I were given a copy of the single Moscow (the theme for the 1980 Olympics) and it came to an end when I purchased my first CD, World Clique, in 1990. Well, almost: recently I bought a vinyl copy of the elusive deleted album Hippopotamomus on ebay (I didn't read the posting carefully enough and thought I was buying a CD!).

    Over 80s I didn't buy many 7" singles, preferring the 12" variety (both LPs and EPs), so here's the full list.

    Moscow
    Homosapien
    Working in the Coalmine
    Radio
    TV
    Goody Two Shoes
    Carmen
    Nemesis
    Michael's theme
