  1. HI there just recently discovered your blog via fun with vinyl. Not sure where to send dead link notices. Not sure if you check all the comments for old posts so I thought I would ask here. Just wondering if you could please re-up Sheena Easton “No Deposit, No Return” 12″ single. It is the only 12″ single from “The Lover In Me” that I don’t have and would really like to add it to my collection. I did ask for some other re-ups in the comment section but I have found those in other places. Love your blog found some great stuff here. Thanks for sharing your collection!
