The Must Get (But Having Difficulty) List.

Kids (and the rest of us actually) are lucky nowadays. Thanks to the ideas born in the late 90's by Shawn Fanning, the way we consume and listen to music is completely different. Once upon a time, if we heard a track we liked, we'd have to either buy the album, the single, or tape it off our mates if they had it. Things are much easier now - you can essentially "try before you buy", thanks to the likes of P2P and music blogs. Some tracks however prove to be eternally elusive. These are the tracks that get taken off blogs quickly, or those that leave you at the back of a massive queue on slsk. These tunes often prove elusive in the record shops too, having sold out the day before you walk in.

I've a small wishlist, and one part was fulfilled today. Being a fan of DJ mixes, there's always one track that blows you away that takes an age to find it's title. The Trader by the Beach Boys is one of those. It features on their early 70's album Holland, and it doesn't feature Wilson in any sense. I can't remember precisely when I first heard it, but when the tune was played in a bar last year I had to go and hassle the DJ. He gladly told me the name, and where I could find it. It's taken until today to get my paws on it. Thanks to Bernard, my new workmate and pal, who took kindly to my offering of a Justin Rutledge CD and brought me Holland on loan in return. It's ace, it sounds like you'd expect, and you can guarantee I'll be caning "the Trader" for fucking ages.

Now, if only someone could sort me out with the original mix of Radio Jolly...
