    Default Weekday Finds 3rd March '09

    Picked up a bunch of interesting records yesterday Ė Jazz stuff, rock etc but the ones that Iím most pleased with are some library records that I found.

I know some names on the Silver labelled Sam Fox Productions, Nino Nardini, Roger Roger but Iím away from home just now and canít play them until I get back; are they worth hearing? vladislav.

    Ive heard bits on the bay and there were electronic and spy type stuff. They sounded good and went for a reasonable price (£20-£30). Nice finds,record shop or chazzer?

    I've got some Sam Fox libraries on seven inch...very weird, cos some tracks are split over two sides, obviously meant to be edited together

    They all sound like high school big bands, recorded in a gym with one microphone- despite having titled like 'folk rock' etc...
    "Not only that but the WHOLE COVER is UNCREASED with only 2 or 3 TINY creaselines near the opening edge about half way down!!!! In the same place (about half way down the opening edge), there is an absolutely TINY and PERFECTLY repaired split" (xxxrecords)

    Sorry not heard of these libary LP's but they look very interesting, and with the amount you ae bought the law of averages says there'll be at least a few tasty bits, nice find

    they do look interesting. nice finds.

    here's my lot:

    TIM HARDIN - 1 (lovely folky stuff with gary burton on vibes)
    ??? (part of a great trade package i got from Priima - chers mate- a fw good groovy tracks and one monster one with a good break)
    CAN - "soon over Bamaluma" (never seen this one in the wild - -pretty fun. bit late for my tastes)
    ??? (another from Priima - -brilliant mix of mroe traditional russian stuff with some organ wig outs, fuzz and oddball funky breaks. great fun)
    CZERWONE GITARY (maybe theyre most consistent LP - -a great listen for the most part)
    STRAWBS - "dragonfly" (traded my copy off a while back so pleased to find another affordable one)

    ROBIN WILLIAMSON - "myrrh" (ISB dude - again, i traded off my copy so picked this up for cheap. still not doing much for me)
    ALEX TAYLOR - "with friends and neighbours" (slightly funky country rock stuff. nice version of Taylor's "nightowl")
    WAKEMAN - "white rock" (picked up a second copy so i can rock doubles of "montezuma's revenge" - because i'm cool)
    BEEFHEART - "ice cream for crow" (always avoided this because of the later date - but its pretty great)
    HOT HITS lp for a wonky cover of "backstreet luv"

    Got them from a Charity shop. Worked out at about 50p each. All in excellent condition. Just can't play them 'till I get back home on Friday.
    The ones with Roger Roger & Nino Nardino look promising and I hope they sound promising too knowing their other work. vladislav

    Nice score - not even seen a library in a charity shop for ages never mind a bulk haul!

    I've had a few of these before and they have some great tracks but are frustratingly short. The ones I had were really well recorded if a bit parpy but they had some ace fuzz on them.

    Is this his album with the version of "It's all over now" on it? If so a great version...

    Nice one Vladislav - don't suppose there's a Jean Michel Jarre amongst the Sam Fox's ?

    Some bits I've picked up lately, mostly from a local shop, the majority of the titles being handpicked from the same collection, not dirt cheap, but still no need to go looking for online deals ...




    Bobby Timmons - This Here Is...og stereo copy, a classic piano trio lp...

    SH Jazz Quintet - S/T - got a handful of SHQ titles, this one, as the earliest of the bunch (recordings from ca -63-64) being decent straight hard bop (their lps are stylistically quite different)

    Harry Beckett - Flare Up - a great listen all the way through w/ a few whoa moments...

    Bengt Ernyd Quartet - 1964-65; hauntingly beautiful 60's modal jazz from Sweden...need more this kind of stuff



    Mirdza Zivere - Viena Diena Mana Muza; a cheap, mint flea market copy of this nice Latvian funky disco/boogie lp from the late 70's, loads of cool Moog bits on it, arrangements by Raimonds Pauls & Gunars Rozenbergs..

    Art Blakey - Jazz Corner..;a clean mono DG original..

    GŲteborgs Musikkvartett - Aftara; superb Swedish modal/modern jazz, and somewhat rare/in demand, I think...

    Appendix - Spacetrip; another Swedish winner opening up with a killer psyched out jazz tune, the rest of the lp being pretty much in a similar vein to Aftara..




    Carsten Meinert - Musictrain; Danish private modern (modal/free/funky) jazz..

    Sadowski - Na Kosmodromie; quite a groover, this, well known here, I suppose..? ..

    SHQ - Nebyeki; SHQ with an updated sound (-72), still great...

    Interjazz - highly enjoyable energetic & interesting Czech jazz set from 1970...


    And lastly, a bunch of 70's Algerian 45's found at a flea market for pennies, a couple of them looks promising but i haven't gotten around to give them a listen yet..

    I had to pick up this today in a charity: Sandy Nelson - Drums Drums Drums... and I guess i'm not the first of us to do so.
    No funk as it is mid-sixties but some great funny tittyshakers with heavy drums (of course). And a lot of drum solos.

    Great finds, been looking for that Appendix LP for an age. Let me know if it's for trade / sale!

    just got a couple of non hit Adam Faith singles- to make a big man cry, and 'cowman, milk your cow'...the latter looks unplayed, and Mr Faith has signed the parlophone company sleeve

    Wasn't pence, but still a good price for me and the chazza, which is what 'book chazza's' should be like imho

    Don't know it but it looks pretty sweet... and guess it's pretty good looking at the comments so far!

    I had been promised first dibs on a couple of crates of "early 70s 45s" but was close to going home after coming the shop two times without the owner showing up... pretty glad I didn't though as I found some niceness for 10-15kr each:

    Oscar Brown Jr - Work Song/Brown Baby/Watermelon Man/Humdrum Blues (french Philips EP) EX-y, chuffed!
    The Voices of East Harlem - Right On Be Free/No, No, No (elektra)
    Gladys Night & The Pips - The Nitty Gritty/Got Myself A Good Man (tamla)
    Gladys Night & The Pips - Cloud Nine/Friendship Train (tamla)
    The Temptations - Ball Of Confusion/It's Summer (tamla)
    The Temptations - Cloud Nine/Why Did She Have To Leave Me (tamla)
    King Curtis - Soul Train Pt.1/Pt.2 (trip)
    Ray Charles and his Orchestra - Hit The Road Jack/The Danger Zone (karusell)
    Wilson Pickett - You Keep Me Hanging On/Now You See Me, Now... (atlantic) nice pic sleeve
    The Electric Indian - Keem-O-Sabe/Broad Street (ua)
    The Boogaloo Investigators - Let The Groove Move You/I've Got The Feeling (defunkt) these old mods sure now how to do it
    Jerry Williams & Dynamite Brass - Keep On/Boogaloo Baby (sonet) nice to get the pic sleeve
    The Beach Boys - Heroes & Villains/You're Welcome (uk capitol)
    The Illusion - Did You See Her Eyes/Falling In Love (Dot) got their 1969 LP and not that impressed, this is about the same... have they got any goodies?
