Dusty in auction

This mint seven-inch single of "What have I done to deserve this?" was recently discovered in the PSB archives and given by Neil and Chris to the Stonewall gay rights charity to auction online. It's very rare because it was signed by Neil, Chris and Dusty Springfield backstage at the Brits Awards in 1988. Go to the link if you'd like to place a bid.
UPDATE: The auction is now closed and the single went for £929!

Lyric of the day

I could leave you
say good-bye
or I could love you
if I try
and I could
and left to my own devices
I probably would
Left to my own devices
I probably would

From Left to my own devices
