“In the evening I taped Moving Waves and emerson lake and palmer for Johnny – good recording” / “Melody Maker not in yet” / “Got records off of Nobby in xchange for him losing my pen”
No truth in the rumour that I wore an eye-patch, had a wooden leg and carried around a parrot on one shoulder.
I did however ‘file share’ my collection of music, in exchange for other people’s collections of music.
Another way of getting music in 1973 was to have good friends lose my pen. (Why did I not just ask for a pen by way of replacement?)
