Last week Dolf Hell sent me a link to an ad on Marktplaats, where 100 advertisement records were being offered. This minimum price was 30 euros, so I asked my love to make a bid of 35. It is the first time I ever did this; I have never bought records on Marktplaats or eBay. To my surprise the bid was accepted immediately and today the box with records arrived.
On the picture with the ad were two records that I didn’t have yet. That was the reason why i made the bid. Well, of one I have the record, but not the sleeve: the “Skol tune”, sung by Patricia Paay . In ”De muzikale verleiding” there is only a labelshot. But now I have the sleeve too:
