What does your Orange Juice/Edwyn Collins music collection consist of?

So far by Orange Juice I have:
1. You Can't Hide Your Love Forever (LP)
2. Bridge (45' single which came with a live version of "Poor Old Soul")
3. Lean Period (12' single)
4. Day I went Down To Texas (Flexidisc)
5. Texas Fever EP (Special French pressing :O)

I don't have any of Edwyn's solo records but I should be getting to work on that soon :)

I think I have virtually everything on vinyl from early OJ to Dr Syntax.

Maybe the odd 12" single or 7" I don't have.
Orange Juice CDs:

The Orange Juice
You Can't Hide Your Love Forever

I did have cassette copy of "In a Nutshell: Best of" but that got stolen.
I think I also have some vinyl, but it's away in storage at the moment.

Edwyn solo/collaborations CDs:

Message For Jojo - Bernard Butler / Edwyn Collins
Doctor Syntax

Home Again

I think that's pretty much all the albums, excluding a compilation or two. There's always at least two of these on my iPod at all time, in case of emergency :)
You've got me thinking, I'll have to start searching through my boxes, my singles are in chaos.

Edwyn also appears on Aztec Camera - Stray and B side of Good morning Britain a live version of Consolation Prize with Roddy Frame.
Wow, you all have quite the collection. I am impressed!
Edwyn also appears (and produces) on two fantastic A House lps: I Am The Greatest and, um, the next one that I can't remember the title of.
There's also a brilliant live "Consolation Prize" by him and Roddy Frame on the US cd single of Good Morning Britain.
...and the wonderful "I Hear A New World" double 12" set of remixes off I'm Not Following You.
you have to be kidding.... My house is a library gone mad... there is NO way I could put it all together in a list for you. Is it a bad thing when you visit West Heath Studios and Edwyn has to dig for a gift that I don't have! Thanks Edwyn again!
I have some cool original artwork for the self titled OJ cassette, lots of OJ test pressings, live recordings of both Edwyn and OJ, OJ on laservision, a wine glass that Edwyn drank out of (my wife stole that from Maxwells in NJ), and lots of tee shirts. TOO MUCH STUFF!
Please take a look at my photo collection part one.
I also have the regular releases on cd and vinyl.
Cheers, Johan
Well now we know where to turn if we desperately need something. Edwyn's collection of his own stuff is miniscule compared to you guys. We're rubbish. x
anything I have is yours if needed.

Well here's a thing. I started thinking about the Theme to the Punk Rock Hotel, B side of 'Ain't That Always the Way' written and produced by Edwyn for Paul Quinn. The piano was played beautifully by Paul Heard, later the main man of M People! This was a film idea Alan Horne had, rumours of which circulated for a long time, but which never came to fruition. I haven't heard it in over 20 years. I loved it. Could anyone put it up here and I'll see if I can put in the player?

Art Work and Bum Fuzz

Posted by scott owen on May 5, 2017 at 17:15 0 Comments

My Bum Fuzz unit just arrived in California along with some plectrums with Edwin art. It took me along time to order this unit, but the twenty five year gestation period for it to be built surely eclipses my lack of urgency. Best regards all...

Thank you for the music

A while back I asked Edwyn if he would let me use his music on a little film I made.  Here is the result: Mill Mechanics

Thanks for that.

Shareefa Energy Reasoning With Self - Review

Shareefa Energy – ‘Reasoning With Self’ - Review

A few months ago the BBC offered a profile of new emerging female poets, ‘Women Who Spit’. Watching the short films by Jemima Foxtrot, Cecilia Knapp and Deanna Rodger, I noted with great relief that the art of poetry is alive and well. I have always been fascinated by the medium. The ability to express intricate thoughts and feelings in a few lines of words. It is the most empowering process. And empowerment through self-expression… Continue

Dear Edwyn,

Can I just thank you for your contribution to my life. From that very first shiver I got listening to Felicity on the John Peel Show to the smile I still express today when you burst into laughter half way through Consolation Prize, it's important I let you know how much your music means to me before one of us croaks it.

I was hooked instantly and bought all the singles and albums, the ten inches, 12 inches and even ripped the flexi discs off Smash Hits and Melody…
