VIP NEWS

WE’RE BACK!!!

Heres just one of many happy messages we received…

‘Hats off to the Harpur Suite…and VIP Record Fairs…

Many thanks to all who made it to the excellent VIP Record Fair at the Harpur Suite in Bedford yesterday.

It was fantastic to see so many record collecting enthusiasts out and about flicking through the packed racks of LPs, singles CDs etc – something we all took for granted once but has been impossible to do over the past 18 months

With its high ceiling, the Harpur Suite was a good spacious venue and with many a face mask being worn there was much being done to respect others and  to move in as safe an environment as possible..

Of course, it was great for me to meet and greet so many old faces and TBL supporters – the stall did brisk business and I had a limited number of the Evenings With Led Zeppelin Revised & Expanded edition book to sell which were quickly snapped up.

Many thanks to John and the VIP crew and many thanks to my very good friend and record collecting comrade Steve Livesley for helping me on the TBL stall.

Here’s roll call of people it was so great to see: Graeme Hutchinson and Nick Anderson (basking in a job well done on their input to the Ross Halfin Led Zeppelin Vinyl book) Ian Avey, Nick Carruthers, Andy Neil  (author and curator of The Who re releases) Brian of Revolution Records, Jerry Bloom, Adam Tidd, Dave Bunting, Mark Palmer, Alastair Chorlton, Mat Roberts, Dave Crane, Robert Napthine, Paul Stanton, Mr Shouty and his lady, plus various people I used to serve in the Our Price record shop.

Indeed, It was great being behind the counter for a day again. In fact given my mental health issues it did much for my own self esteem and wellbeing to be back talking to like minded souls about the subject I am so passionate about. I was a bit nervous about facing up to this but everybody was so welcoming and supportive throughout the day – enquiring about the good lady Janet and how we all were – it was very heartwarming to say the least…

Incidentally Mark Lammar comedian ,radio DJ and presenter of  Never Mind The Buzzcocks was also in attendance buying up a stack of singles.

Very pleasing also to see Darren back at the Vinyl Barn down the road…

So all in all a fantastic day – to paraphrase  Nick Hornby –‘’Record Fairs won’t save your life but they can give you a better one”

And after all the trials and difficulties of the past 18 months, life felt a lot better yesterday doing something we all love again at the VIP Record Fair at the Harpur Suite ..

Here’s to doing it all again at the same venue on Saturday October 16…

Dave Lewis, August 22,2021.’
