  1. Very tempted by this single…if it’s available…

      Well, you could order at Fives! (Or Sister Ray, if you need to.) Let me know if you get it. BTW, annoyingly the B-side is marked ‘Top of Pops’ instead of ‘Top of the Pops’. We pedants demand the right info.

  2. Sister Ray had a queue going around the corner when I walked past that day. As much as I’d love to get it, I haven’t got a record player any more…sigh
