B-sides: Lockdown 4

Counting The Beat B-sides: Lockdown 4. An occasional series exploring obscurities, oddities and obsessions in my New Zealand vinyl collection. I've just spent the fourth lockdown working out of the sleepout where the less played records in the collection reside. I needed music that wasn't going to get in the way of my work too much. Luckily there's a turntable in there.
