Finally caught up with these this evening - Great stuff Paul, it's all a bit of a blast from the past reading about these collections, sadly I had to sell just about all my DVD's before moving to Italy... I really didn't want to take a chance at French and Swiss customs with 2000 DVD's in the car. The fact that they probably wouldn't have fitted in the car didn't help either.
A lot of the stories are familiar, cinema store, psychotronic, film fairs, laserdiscs, Samhain, Deep Red...
It's weird knowing those days of tape trading, that boom in the early 90's, couldn't really happen again, not with the internet and downloading. It's certainly a lot more accessible now, which is great, but back then you needed a weekly bus pass and good networking skills!
Looking forward to the next one
