    After wanting "Roni Size - Out of breath" for god knows how long i was chuffed when I saw a second hand copy on the internet But when i saw the price was £25 i was a bit gutted and resisted buying it. But through some stroke of look i was browsing through the second hand records in Vinyl Exchange i came across it for £3.50 thats right 3 fuckin pound 50 i was so chuffed i just thought i would share it with you and ask if any of you have ever come across a record you've wanted for ages at a price like that?

    Got this for the equivalent of £1 in a bundle of 300 records a few years back. Paid £250 for them,

    Absolute bargain and a stonker of a tune.

    I imagine that, as there are some new remixes of "Ra" then the original may get a repress. That sometimes happens, so hold out on buying that one of ebay .
    The best bargain i got was a promo copy of "Quest" by Andy & Shimon and it was free. My boss at the record shop bought a load of second hand DnB off some bloke and we went through the collection and my boss saw the tune, lobbed it over to me and asked if i wanted it for nothing.
    I also managed to get "Pacman" (RAM remix) when it first came out, for £2
