  1. To date I've had 4 basses delivered by UPS and in each case there has been no problem and no damage. I've also sent 3 basses by UPS and in each case the buyer has confirmed on-time delivery and no damage to the instruments. Having said that, I will be thinking long and hard before the next courier transaction. Chris BTW - and slightly away from the main topic, I just found this little article about a potential 'Delivery Theft' by another courier company - except this one was captured on a door-bell camera ! ! ! Follow the link below and try to ignore the adverts Doorbell camera captures delivery theft

    Feedback for TOM1946

    Thanks to Tom, I'm now the proud owner of a rather lovely Antigua Fender P-Bass (a long-standing ambition now fulfilled). No fuss, no dramas - just a seamless transaction with great communication and very quick delivery. A pleasure doing business with you Tom. Take it easy and best wishes. Chris

    RIP Aretha Franklin

    Way way back around 1967/8, I was working in one of the coffee bars at Butlins, Clacton-on-Sea. There was a bright red Wurlitzer juke-box full of great songs, including R.E.S.P.E.C.T. which was played almost continually (along with Tramp by Otis Redding & Carla Thomas). Happy days. R.I.P. Aretha Franklin - Thankyou for giving so much musical pleasure to so many people.

    Latest 'Yes' live album

    My selections of the 'classic Yes line-up' . On Record - The first album "YES" line-up of Anderson, Bruford, Squire, Kaye, Banks. The cover versions of 'Every Little Thing' and 'I See You' are outstanding and have been essential listening since I first heard them in 1969. Live - The "YES ALBUM" line-up of Anderson, Bruford, Squire, Kaye, Howe. Saw them at Colchester Corn Exchange in 1970 and the Royal Albert Hall in 1971 (supporting Iron Butterfly). Stunning live performances both times. Guilty Pleasure - The " 90125" line-up of Anderson, White, Squire, Kaye, Rabin. Just for 'Owner Of A Lonely Heart' - which I consider one the best introductions in the world - ever. Chris

    Bassists you like who aren't your normal cuppa char

    My usual music is Classic Rock but I agree 100% with John Taylor (Duran Duran and Power Station) and Mark O'Toole (Frankie Goes To Hollywood) I also have a great deal of respect for Steve Priest from Sweet and Nick Beggs from Kajajgoogoo. Chris

    Jon Hiseman RIP

    Sorry to hear this. Check out 'Colosseum Live' - it's an excellent live set from Jon Hiseman (Drums) , Mark Clarke (Bass), Dave Greenslade (Keys & Vibes), Richard Heckstall-Smith (Saxes), Dave 'Clem' Clempson (Guitar) and Chris Farlowe (Vox) - a great double album. R.I.P.

    Songs you absolutely hate

    Songs I do not like playing include 'Rockin In The Free World' and 'Zombie'. There's probably more but they are massively out-numbered by songs that I do enjoy playing - including 'Alright Now' and 'Mustang Sally'. There's only one song that i refuse to play, and I will leave the room if I hear it and that is ....... 'American Pie' by Don McClean. Chris

    Jeff Beck doc BBC4 2100 and 0125

    Just watched this - it's been a long long time since a tv programme has held my undivided attention from start to finish. Always liked Jeff Beck's playing and the programme opened my eyes (and ears) to several phases that I missed. Thanks to the OP for the heads-up. Chris

    Seller's Remorse

    Only one bit of seller's remorse here Fender Precision sunburst/maple/tortoise shell - bought brand new from Guitar Village in Shaftesbury Avenue, London in October 1973 (and I have still got the receipt). Sold in January 1978, to a music shop in Colchester (Oasis Music if i remember correctly). Big big mistake - but needs must when the devil (the bank manager at the time) drives. Chris
  12. Cheers - please check your PMs and reply with relevant details. Take it easy. Chris

    I stole this from No Treble.

    Appreciate the skills and techniques but something missing - soul/feeling/emotion ? ? Chris
  14. Sorry for the delay - PM on it's way in 5 minutes.
