    As predicted, two weeks into the great Duke Grant hunt, and I've still not found one. However, this mornings haul is interesting enough. Lots of unusual gear, much of which I could do with some info on if anybody can help (I apologise in advance for the lack of correct accents on the names)

    Chiitra Neogy - The Perfumed Garden (Gemini LP)
    Piramis 2 (Pepita LP)
    Bacily - Slunecni Vek (Supaphon LP)
    Jozef Skrzek - War Of The Worlds Next Century (Muza LP)
    Jozef Skrzek - Dominics Godfather (Muza LP)
    Jozef Skrzek - Jozefina (Wifon LP)
    Locomotiv GT III - Bummm ! (Brem LP)
    Czeck Radio Jazz Orchestra & The Blue Effect Group - New Synthesis 2 (Panton LP)
    Omega 6 - Nem Tudom A Neved (Pepita LP)

    ...also got Russian pressings of the first two Stooges LPs (late ones though, 1991, but the sleeves look cool in Cyrillic) and a handful of 45s including a porno flexi from 'Rapier' magazine. Not bad for a combined £8.

    Had a *very* quick flick through this lot...there is a nice funky rock track on the Piramis 2 LP and the Czech Jazz one sounds very promising jumping through it.

    Any ideas on any of these ? LSF ?

    Matt - any chance of a CD-r/minidisc/cassette of this one? I'm looking for stuff by the Czech state radio & TV ensembles at the moment.

    Should be able to do a CD or MD at some stage (work allowing). Email me and I'll try and sort it out.

    This Duke Grant thing is getting strange, went out to hit some charities this afternoon (my new job means I can't get out during the week anymore) and again didn't get a single copy. However, I did get these.....

    Jerry Murads Harmonicats - Theme From The Avengers (Hallmark LP)
    Crazy version of 'Peter Gunn' on this, sounds like The Incredible Bongo Band. So, who is Jerry Murad a pseudonem for ?

    The Q Men - Have A Ball (Beck LP)
    Awful carabet LP, bue with a suprisingly good version of '2001' at the end of the LP which is heavy on the hammond.

    The Sun Presents - Soaraway Party Pops (N.O.W LP)
    Ken Lazarus - Reggae Greatest Hits Volume 2 (London LP)
    King Reggie's All Stars - S/T (Polydor LP)

    Oh, and.....

    Various - Big Beat (KPM LP)

    As far as I'm aware, Jerry Murad's a real bloke - a harmonica player of Turkish descent, apparently - but his name looks like an anagram of something.

    'Big Beat' in a charity shop? How? And why is it never in any of the ones I go to?

    "Tonight Matthew, I'll Be Llmod..."



    was quite pleased with the Pete Moore and the Augusto Alguero, and the cat protection charity shop where the records cost "a small donation in the cat collecting box". also the Pourcell one has the excellent 'You Only Live Twice'

    Nice haul! The Baker Street Philharmonic and the Blue Mink LPs both have tasty hammond instros on them.

    Thing I found today which I've been playing the most is "The Goodies Theme" 45 - very funky.

    you must have eyes to see the Baker St one from here. the stall holder asked me why i bought that one and i said because of Mike Vickers' name on the back, but that i thought it would probably be crap.

    the blue cover George Shearing 'Night Mist' has a good 'Cubano Chant' on (thinking of that thread about him the other day). the Mike Moran Band looked very promising (top UK session lineup, lots of keys and synths mentioned), but only Ode to Billie Joe is good, the rest are spoiled by too much rock guitar soloing.

    what's the deal with the Mr Pepper 'Drops' one? had a quick track skip and it sounded rubbish! worth trying again? shame cos the cover's good, and Schroeder's name's on the back.

    the sevens are:
    The Flamingos - Dealin' (Groovin' with the Feelin&#39/Dealin' All the Way (Julmar)
    - nice funky late period stuff, flip is instrumental which works well too
    The Soul Sisters - The Right Time/Think About the Good Times (Sue)
    - double sider
    Don Gardner & Dee Dee Ford - Don't You Worry (Fire)
    - r'n'b
    The Impressions- We're Rollin' On/Pt 2 (abc)
    Harold Smith's Majestic Choir - Why Am I Treated So Bad (Checker)
    - a side is gospel, but this track is funky. got the Meditation Singers on a chess-family label a few weeks ago - also funky gospel business
    Banbarra - Shack Up (UA)
    Rupie Edwards - Do the Skanga/Leggo Skanga (Cactus)
    Toots & the Maytals - Reggae Got Soul/Dog War (Island)

    oh and there's a Burl Ives (good folk ballads, not the rubbish he also churned out) and 'A Classic Case of the Funk', a Junior Delgado 12" and a sleeveless Malcolm Lockyear w/ The Hanged Man in that stack at the front...

    It ain't a John Schroeder job - it's a German thing by Horst Wende. I don't know whether John is the Scroeder credited with the title track, though.

    Personally I like the LP, but you know what I'm like.......

    Lord T - cheers. i'd seen this mentioned on the board before. will have another quick listen, but fear it's not one for me, along with Crazy Otto and all the other Germans playing the old honkytonk joanna.

    themack - what's that 'Soul Cookin' one like? one was up on Ebay last week.

    mundayschild - passed up that Ray Martin twice today, not sure why. there's a whole bunch of re-packaged 50's US Stereo Action LPs that got released here in the late 60s, including that one. is it any good? those kind of 50s records seem to either be excellent or very bad

    not a fan, Rich?
    bought on the recommendation of this very site, and i quote: "A drum-rattling 'Aquarius/Let the Sun Shine in' medley is top of the heap here-one of the best around!"

    hmm...

    Well that certainly wasn't me. Check your old Big Daddy's for the interview with Fusion - it's on his wall (and I have *no* idea why). Still, I do own a copy, nevertheless...

    My one paltry charty purchase of the day was the MFP comp with the cartoon of Superman on the cover. Nice (very faithful) cover of 'Son Of Hickory Holler's Tramp', and 'Dance To The Music', etc.

    Never mind Don Reeve, there's a Klaus Wunderlich 'Hammond Pops 1' in there! Does that mean I'm not the only closet Klaus fan here? Probably not......

    Only a couple of bits, but happy enough with them!

    RD Burman: Hare Rama Hare Krishna OST (Odeon/EMI) [as comped on Bollywood Funk etc]
    Jnan Prakash Ghosh: Drums Of India Volume 2 (EMI India) [a whole LP of tabla & percussion...]
    Various: BBC Detective Themes (BBC) [how could you muck it up? Well, by concentrating on the likes of 'Shoestring', 'Lord Peter Wimsey' and the like...at least 'Starsky & Hutch', 'Quiller', 'Kojack' and 'Piggy Malone & Charley Farley' (aka Alan Tew's Themes, as used by the 2 Ronnies) got through...]
    Various: Ronnie Scott's 20th Anniversary Album (Pye) [double comp featuring Peter Herbolzheimer, Clark-Borland, Tubby Hayes, Scott himself, lots of the usual UK & US Jazz suspects]
    Chic: C'est Chic (Atlantic) [well, it's one of those classics I see everywhere but never pick up...the combination of minty condition and need to make up a 3 for £1 lot finally did the trick]

    Plus a few 45s - Players Association, Candi Staton, Santa Esmerelda (dividing opinion on the Kill Bill OST - I like, flamenco-mariachi-disco-funk's OK by me), Lulu's 'Man Who Sold The World' and the like...Oh, and a 2xCD set of both the Lothar & The Hand People LPs made for Capitol.

    Just my two penn'orth, I tend to agree on the rubbishness of the LP as a whole, but would highly recommend giving 'Tea House Moon' and 'Temptation' the benefit of the doubt...quirky, but both pretty likeable IMHO, the former a nice bit of cod-oriental, the latter getting ALMOST (but not quite) funky...

    Hammond Pops 1?

    you are mistaken Lord T! however, there *are* Hammond Pops 2 and 3 in there, and 'Hammond Hits Again', (all for the covers - might dare listen one day&#33 and the gold covered one w/ Summertime

    and cheers, Wayne - will check those tracks out

    P.S. No digging this weekend as I've been on an actitvity weekend with 42 seven year olds. Before any of you that don't know me get worried I'd better clarify that I am a teacher!

    Bugger all records, although I did get home to find that I've sold around a $1000 of doubles on Ebay this weekend so prepere to be out bid on evertything and anything over the next few weeks!!

    Oh and its my birthday! How come everyone else gets a whole thread of congratualtions from well wishers???

    Don't take it personally Mark. I got cruelly ignored on my birthday too.

    They're all cunts on here anyway and I'm taking my ball home.

    I've been digging this weekend, but I'll wait til I've been to a Bank Holiday booter or two before posting my finds.

    Benicio

    PS Wayne, try the West Bridgford car boot, it's a bit of a trek, but there's nearly always vinyl to be sifted. Last time I was there I got that Radiophonic LP with Vespucci etc on it. I'm not going Nottingham way tomorrow, so I'd sleep better knowing that one of the board is monitoring the situation!!

    Yes, it was HP3 that I spotted - I realised that earlier today when I saw my copy on the shelves. I thought you'd be too ashamed to admit to having one to correct me, though!

    bit of a washout at the south east booters today. loads of vinyl for some reason - all rubbish for the most part, although a lot of classic rock. complete Bowie and Elton John collections for cheap with a bit of the not-so-hot Deep Purple and (oddly?) Chicago.

    anyway, came away with:
    geoff love - star wars etc
    stuart glasston - s/t
    manfred mann - starfire
    magic roundabout OST - dougal and blue cat (minted up)
    young disciples - apparently nothin' 12"
    commodores - easy 45 ('machine gun' on flip&#33
    cook county - star wars 45

    find of the day:
    Duke Grant - Hammond Gold (x1 only)

    also found a lovely UK LP, bought as it 'felt right', which is in the book pretty cheap. turns out it has a belting cover of a well known oldie with - you guessed it - big drums. will bring to brillo next month and see what y'all think. might be slept-on, don't know... it'll be in the chart in June anyway.

    Went to the local fair this weekend. Scored some bits & pieces:

    Battered copy of a brasilian soundtrack to a film produced by Babenco that tells the story of Emerson Fitipaldi. Composed by Marcos Valle, played by Azymuth (amazing brasilian funk!!&#33 and with lots of dialogue...

    Ray Davies' Button Down Brass - Themes from The Exorcist, The French Connection... (in great shape - 1 euro&#33

    Sporting Themes Compilation on BBC records (Mansfield, Bennett, Davies et al)

    Rediffusion Sampler with sort of soul

    Rajput & The Sepoy Mutiny - Flower Power Sitar (Design Records) listening to it now... not that good, despite the sitar solos all over...)

    Azymuth - Outubro LP on Milestone

    Muscles 45 on Big Bear Records - great stuff! with Scuttlin'/Space Party

    Funky Party Band PS 45 on RCA - Chocolate & Vanilla/Funky Jam

    and that was it. I am excited cause i posted some flyers around my neighborhood saying i'll buy records that people don't want and i just received a phone call from an old lady! I'll pay her fairly but i'm not betting i'll strike gold on this one... but, who knows?!!!
