Subject: Records I have lent and borrowed
From: Will Fly
Date: 05 Apr 12 - 09:18 AM

In my vinyl days, we were always lending each other albums, and borrowing albums - and never returning them. I've lost count of the ones I've lent and never seen since.

But my worst sin is being lent the 1957 album "Blues For Night People" by jazz guitarist Charlie Byrd by a fellow student in Leeds in 1964. I loved the disc so much I played it played it - and learned lots from it - but (gulp) I still have it. One of the tracks from it which I've played over the years is "Blues My Naughty Sweetie Gives To Me". I was reminded of my guilt when recording this track for YouTube recently.

So - Dave White, Leeds engineering student from 1963-1965, and guitarist, wherever you are: I still have "Blues For Night People". Many apologies - it's waiting for you any time you need it...

Ah, student days. As a fresher my room-mate borrowed Mozart 40th Symphony, and the Horn Concerto (the Flanders and Swan one). Maybe both on sides of the same LP.
She played it to death, it wasn't in a very good condition when it went back. We knew them by heart though.

A good friend of mine - Richard - had a copy of "Crosscurrents" with Stephen Grossman and Danny Kalb. I've always regretted giving it back since I've never seen another copy of it.

My original vinyl copy of Jackson C Frank's Blues Run The Game went walkies sometime in the late 60s in the anarchic mayhem I lived in in a Notting Hill Gate basement. Sad because, if memory serves me right, I'd got him to sign it for me. Still, the CD's very fine.

Crosscurrents is very easy to find - even on Amazon - though perhaps not on Vinyl

Unless you want to stump up lots of dosh eg Crosscurrents


And finding mp3s not too hard either - I just listened to the title track.

In about 1964, I loaned "Logan English Sings the Woodie Guthrie Songbag" to a woman who was concerned that she 'might' have the ALS gene. I tried to retrieve that LP several times, but it was always "just a little longer". I don't think she ever intended to return it.

Never have been able to find another copy.

I loaned my new Double CD of the Dubliners "30years a'greying" (which I imported to Australia from Germany and hadn't even listened to),to a friend about 15 years ago. I can't remember who that friend was, so if you're on Mudcat and reading this...........CAN I HAVE IT BACK PLEEEEEEEASE!!!!!!!

I lent the first Downliner Sect LP to a girl I met at a party and never saw either of them again!

I lent the first Who LP to my sister in 1965 or so - and she's still got it!!

Fortunately I managed to retrieve my Boston bootleg LP "We found it in a trashcan - honest" some years after I lent it to a guy at work - he never played it!

In my teens I lent all our family 78s of Paul Robeson + my precious 'Peekskill Labor Day Picnic' record (Pete Seeger, Howard Fast, Paul Robeson....) to a girlfriend.
We broke up, and for months I didn't have the heart to ask for them back.
Was finally about to do so when she turned up on the doorstep with brand new copies of all 12 of them.
They had fallen from a table and every one of them had smashed, so she searched replacement copies out and managed to find them all.
If you are still with us Maureen Evans, I still love you for that.

Oh God - when I think of the records I've lost over the years by lending them... An original BYG Magic Brother, various Nonsuch Explorers, a rare copy of the first Damned album (with the Eddie and the Hotrods pic), several Bartok String Quartets, Julie Tippets & Maggie Nicholls duo, innumerable Topic & School of Scottish Studies records. These days I just don't...

Albums I've borrowed? Well I still have several of Bill's Coltrane & Sun Ra albums stashed away for when he finally gets bored of Hare Krishna, though after 25 years this is looking unlikely. And if my brother ever wondered where his copy of One Size Fits All is... On a happier note a few months back I was able to return to Mr Greenoaken's keeping his rare Peter Bellamy vinyl to wit: Exceedingly Good Songs / Won't You Go My Way / Fox Jumps Over the Parson's Gate AND his video of Larner, Cox, Bellamy et al. Hey, I'm not saying it was easy (wonder if he's still got my Pink Floyd Live at Pompeii video??)

I'll trump the lot of you for lending... short of space when I moved house nearly 20 years ago, I gave my entire vinyl collection into the care, temporarily, of a neighbour and regionally well- known folk performer. There was always an excuse why I couldn't have them back just yet...

A one-time friend with whom Bonnie Shaljean and I once shared a house was, I believe, responsible for the loss of my three album set of the David Munrow "Art of Courtly Love". At any rate, at some time in our residence in that house the albums vanished and never reappeared, and no explanation was ever offered as to where they went.
And then a colleague of mine at a school once lent me the cassette recordings of the BBC radio adaptation of "The Lord of the Rings" and I think, to my shame, I still have them somewhere....
Karma?

I don't often lend recordings, but when I do, I put a sticker on them saying "Return to [my name] when you are done, but please do not duplicate." I don't know if any have not been returned. And I think I've returned everything I've borrowed.

Tubular Bells (Mike Oldfield) was loaned years ago to someone who never returned it but did return the sleeve which I still have. Not sure if this was intentional but seems a bit odd. I have never borrowed records

Banjoman, if you are considering replacing Tubular Bells, keep looking for the vinyl, the sound on the remastered CD is rather flat and cold.

Well maybe I'm Being a little harsh, but it doesn't seem to have the warmth that the Vinyl has. I also bought Ommadawn, and was disappointed to find that they hadn't improved the vocals on 'The Horseback Song" at the end of the album. It's still very hard to hear.

Luckily I never loaned out the originals.

I have the CD of tubular bells and do agree that it seems to lack something that the original vynl had. lack of depth & tone but still very listenable too. I do keep a look out for the original and think I may have found a charity shop who have put one aside for me.

A girlfriend dumped me, age 17, shortly after I'd given her Tubular Bells and a Stackridge album. I said 'I'll have my albums back in that case'. Thirty six years on I feel an inordinate amount of guilt whenever I see them and haven't played either since.

On a slightly different theme, someone on an internet forum offered his lifetime collection of classical LPs, thousands of them, buckshee and gratis to the first interested party. I assumed he was having a nervous breakdown and passed them over. Northern Soul collectors were infamous for offering to give away their records/ clothes/ property when whatever pharmaceuticals they were using turned them to closer to God, and I imagined this was something similar. Someone with less scruples had taken him up on the offer a few hours later.

Probably wise - and in any case what would you do with that many LPs? (I've got 20 or 30 of my father's classical LPs; in the ten years since he died I've played one of them, once.)

May not have been a nervous breakdown, though. A friend of mine was religious about the Velvet Underground, Tom Waits and a few really extreme punk & post-punk acts - Patti Smith, Swans, early Meat Puppets, that character of thing. Then one day he heard some John Coltrane, and it was Everything Must Go time - he no longer had any interest in rock music in any form, or jazz prior to John Coltrane, or essentially in anything that wasn't John Coltrane. I think he kept the first two Meat Puppets albums and a couple by Swans, but that was about it.
