Johnny Solo can now afford to buy a boat.

It's been a while since the Johnny Solo single has appeared on ebay or so I thought until I did a bit of research. It was on in July and sold for £5.99. Now a few months later it returns and sells for £110. The cheap one was listed under reggae/ska, this latest was in the punk/powerpop category. Did that make a difference? Yellow Dinghy is, I think, their only release on 7" and I'd like it myself to add to my list of "yellow" songs : I Like Yellow Things, Alone In My Yellow, Mellow Yellow, Yellow And Red, The Colour Yellow..............................

I once bought the Pete Newnham 'Rudi' single listed under reggae/ska. It did turn out still expensive for me but I'm sure some bigger hitters must've missed it.

Yes I have the Mrs. Wilson's Children lp bought from the Record Collector shop in Sheffield a few years ago. Have to reacquaint myself with Johnny Solo.
