Unauthorised item in the bagging area

I like a good re-edit- not any old re-edit you understand but a good re-edit. A few years ago Pilooski was the re-edit king, taking something old, not too widely known, running it through the software in his laptop and giving a new lease of life. Some re-edits are pretty lazy, just adding a beefed up drum track but when they're done well they're good fun. Pilooski's re-edit of Frankie Valli's 1967 song Beggin' was given a proper release beyond the world of bootlegs and mp3s. It still brings a smile to my face when I hear it.

Beggin' (Pilooski Edit)

this is another one. as but two formats had then12" but then a while later saw the 7" at a decent price so bought it as well.
I think a psychologist could have a field day with these disclosures!

There are a decent number of records I've got on 7 and 12, and albums on vinyl and cd.

Although I don't have this one in any format other than mp3.

Vinyl and cd albums are different. You had to in the early days of mp3 players if you wanted your vinyl in mp3 form and the cds were relatively cheap, on the other hand the Pilooski 7" wasn't cheap but I persuaded myself that it was justifiable.
