Songlines

First time post. Not strictly about books but seemed the most obvious place to post.

Fifty-nine (59) used but in very good condition Songlines Magazines with 10 cd's going for FREE. Includes Songlines No. 50 Special Edition with double cd. Get a great backlog of Songlines magazines. The Songlines mags are from the period 2002 to 2010:
2002-3 Issues 14-19; 2003-5 Issues 20-29; 2005-6 Issues 30-39,; 2006-8 Issues 40-49; 2008-9 Issues 50-59; 2009-10 Issues 60-69. Includes the Songlines 50th Special Edition issue; 2011 Issues 73-75.
Includes Songlines cd's for the following magazines:
37, 38, 40, 41, 44, 50 (double cd), 65, 67, 68, 74.
Only snag is they have to be collected from Uxbridge, West London. Anybody interested? Only other option is the re-cycle bin. I really don't want to re-cycle, such a wealth of information to read on music from around the world.

Charity shops might be a better option than recycling, but I confess I've recycled many myself!

Thanks for replying Chris. Songlines opened such a world of music for me (excuse the pun), much like Charlie G who I met at the first Womad in Malmesbury. He told me to look out for an 'unknown' band called Bassekou Kouyate and ngono ba. How right he was. It seems such a waste to just bin, I am not sure charity shops will take them, they are already reputed to pulp a lot of book donations because they don't sell.

I had an almost complete collection, until about five years ago. I kept the cds, but couldn't get a taker for the mags - so they went to the Great Green Wheelie Bin in the sky. I did manage to find a home for all my old fRoots mags to a pal who's doing a post-grad folk music degree. I've got a few "Southern Rags" (the fRoots predecessor) but they're staying, snuggling up with my "Let It Rocks" and "Blues Unlimiteds".

Boys, eh?

Thanks for replying Norman. I guess, as we know, what is important to some of us is meaningless to others. At this year's Womad I asked in the Songlines tent, but just got quizzical looks. I guess not digital.

With reference to the Songlines magazines I am offering for free (see earlier post), I would be willing to drive to anywhere within the Greater London area to deliver them, if this helps someone to take them.

With no taker for the free Songlines magazines I will try the local charity shops and see if they are interested or it will be into the re-cycling bin.

Yes, we have so many issues. I'm afraid I also had to ditch my Songlines back numbers when I moved a couple of years ago. I kept a couple of the early ones (like #1, which had the Chieftains on the cover). The latest Songlines email has just arrived, and I see the new one has an article about Ana Moura, and there's a link to this catchy little number.

You might try a charity called The Book Rescuers. They collect books and periodicals and sell them online to fund education projects. I'm not sure what is the fewest number of mags they'll deal with, but they're worth a try.

Thanks for this Alistair. I had a look at their website and it looks like they only deal with books. Useful to know though, I had never heard of them so thanks for the info.
