    Dear me, Miss Brahms. How can you even consider yourself a true Australian? Oh, I forgot - you don't - you're 'British'.
    I'm an Anglo-Celtic Australian party-pooper.

    "Rap" definition somewhere on the web: a type of popular music of US black origin in which words are recited rapidly and rhythmically over an instrumental backing.

    Sometimes the stories and rhyming are quite clever, but rap definitely should not be called "music". The instrumental backing is just rhythmical thumping. It's not a musical composition by means.

    Not sure in what category it belongs.....

    Very true BVS. It's certainly not my idea of "music".

    It’s a silent C at the start of ‘rap’

    Later on nearly every 12' were Limited Editions but this was used as a sales ploy to make people buy one.
    You're right, some albums do indeed go for quite a tidy sum. I can say with confidence that none of mine would however, and I certainly don't have any coloured vinyl sadly.

    When CD's were introduced in 1983, I was buying less and less vinyl and gradually started buying compact discs instead - in fact most of my pop/rock CD collection is 80's music, but I do have quite a varied taste in music from all decades. Rap is one of the few types of music I don't go for.

    Never had any records of them to be honest with you. In fact, I hardly ever bought any records as a youngster - most of what I had were bought for me as presents. I mentioned Showaddywaddy because a lad I used to hang around with when I was about 13/14 years old was really into them. He had all their albums and merchandise.....posters, T-shirts, you name it, he had them.

    Who can remember the name of those long thin sticks (longer and thinner than breadsticks, I believe, and lacking their rounded ends) that people used to eat at parties (n England) in the 1970s? They had a commercial name that I can't remember. They were very plain and savoury (but not cheesy) with a boring flavour.
