Late arrival at the two biggest fleamarkets in town yielded some stuff. All 45s 5kr and the LPs at 10kr.
Old italian guy with a small stack of 45s:
The Rokes - que non c'e nessuno/la luna e bianca la notte e nera
Later Rokes... b-side is very nice in a weirdly orchestrated pop way.
Enzo Jannaci - vengo anchi'io no tu no/giovanni, telegrafista
Lucio Dalla - 4/3/1943/il fiume e la citta'
B-side wins again. Decent lightly funky, soundtracky thing but with italian crooner vocals.
Then from a big stall with loads of 45s of all kinds:
Albert Band - un rayo de sol/balapapa
Biggest ouch of the day, maybe the titles should have been warning enough.
Is this even the same band as the cabello rubio one?
Ramsey Lewis - do what you wanna/Julia
Canned Heat - let's work together/i'm her man
It's Canned Heat indeed. Don't know what I expected really.
Nino Ferrer - le telefon/je cherche une petite fille
Le Telefon is big and brassy and keeps the foot tapping. Good enough for me.
Jefferson Airplane - watch her ride/martha
Never listened much to the airplane really and had forgotten how good they are. Watch her ride is nice on a small one as they say.
Got an early Bee Gees comp and Jackie Lomax - Three too and are enjoying both music and monobrow right now.
Did a few charities on Thursday and some today and this is the best I could muster.
U2 - Boy (Island)
Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66 - Introducing (A&M). Nice take on Scarborough Fair.
Rush - A Farewell To Kings (Mercury)
Stevie Wonder - Fulfillingness' First Finale (Motown)
Santana - Borboletta (CBS)
Santana - Moonflower (CBS)
Left behind a second Rush album 'Moving Pictures', Grace Slick 'Manhole' and a Camel album which I think was 'The Snow Goose'.
Blackberry Loves U2.
I Detest Every Single Thing About Them.
To infinity - and beyond!
Slow weekend, no markets at all ... summertime
Skull Snaps ST ... Mailbox Trade
Dizzy Gillespie My Way ... Groovy Album, so some groovers, a hair medley and a bond like song
The Electric Indian - Keem O Sabe - exploito lp on UA mention here before, good fun, covers of "I Heard It Through The Grapevine", "Spinning Wheel" etc,
by a studio band that went on to becom MFSB apparently.
Little Joe and The Latinaires - The Best of Little Joe (lp)
I know nothing about Texmex sounds, so this lp was a bit of a revelation
Here's Little Joe doing it back in the day:
Attention!!! I know this is a very expensive Price for the record. This i one of my most beloved Records, so my primary intention isn't the selling. I like it in my collection. I only will sell it, if someone wants it that much, that he is willing to pay that much money. Therefore the unrealistic price. Please don't tell me about it. I don't want to cheat ,I don't force someone into buying it, I don't want to drive up the price.Thanks for understanding
My eye caught an add on the dutch version of Craigslist. Someone selling off a whole box of records for 'filmmontage'...libraries so to speak.
50 euros for aprox 150 titles so I jumped in my car and closed the deal before someone else would notice this add.
Some really nice expensive titles as you can see in the pics. Around 50 KPM titles as well but unfortunately no Afro Rocks or Big Beats. I will put up most of the KPM up for trade later so holler at me if you are looking for something in particular.

Market buys Saturday: These came from the skips via a dealer. The records came from a fairly big collection found in a Sunderland basement but were mostly water damaged. The dealer salvaged the ones that weren't too bad but I'm more interested in the ones that he didn't get (quite a lot of US press stuff so wonder what he left)! Nothing amazing but cheap so not too bad and only the Harvey Mandel has water damage on the sleeve reverse.
Norma Tanega - Walkin' My Cat Named Dog (New Voice) I recognised the sleeve and name but that was all. Nice acoustic based pop.
The Fabulous Rhinestones - Freewheelin' (Just Sunshine) There was a lot of 70's country rock in the collection. This is more BS&T. Nothing earth shatterng but listenable.
The Hometown Band - Flying (A&M) More MOR and FM friendly adult rock. One decent instrumental track that goes into jazz/fusion terrority but again questionable whether I really need this.
Harvey Mandel - Fee The Sound (Janus) Exactly what you'd expect. Decent enough jazz fusion rock from 74'.
Bob-A-Bela - S/T (Channel) Not quite b boy disco breaks but nearly on one track. Interesting take on Pink Floyds Money.
Herbie Hancock - Secrets (CBS) I feel compelled to buy every Hancock LP I find but if I'm honest the latter 70's fusion mainly bores me, at least a whole LP in one listen does.
Butts Band - Hear & Now (ABC) I thought Mr Sayers needed this but he has one so think I'll be rocking doubles of this and playing Don't Wake Up.
Janne' Schaffer' - The Chinese (Vertigo) I also thought Mr Sayers needed this and although he has a later press he does want it....phew
Contains the excellent No Registration.
Funky Force & The MRS Gang - It's My Mike (Amanda) Not sure what this sole rap record was doing in the collection (has me worried that there might be more in the water damaged leftovers...wherever they may be).
This sounds like a tune from 85/86 but the MC states 87. The sound is drum machine, horn stab from Ashleys Roachclip, great cutting on 'Ahh yeah' and various other classic phrases. The MC's are typical of the period. Good tune.
Not in the Freddy Fresh book, not on Discogs, no mention on Google and no one knows it on DWG...very surprising. It's a UK record in a Jet Star sleeve and I thought it was definitely US sounding but the more I listen it is perhaps UK. Anyone got this or got any info?
Carboot Sunday: One stall, £1 a pop. Couldn't leave them but what I'll do with a bootleg double vinyl press of Nice & Smooth's 2nd LP, an accapella only Nas LP from 1999 and a later Common LP I'm not sure. Nas Illmatic is a UK copy and spare. Tommy Boy is De La Soul's Ring Ring Ring and a spare that I believe Mr Sayers wants. I left plenty more but late 90's rap is like a bad smell to me.
Oh and what the hell...to counter-act the shite from real world digging, some recent mailbox arrivals.

Frustrating kind of day - drove maybe 100k between 3 boot sales and one market and came back with two records of any note:
Norman Connors - Romantic Voyage
Dick Heckstall- Smith - A Story Ended. (this was from a dealer, and not amazingly cheap, so i hesitate to include it)
Mood not improved by watching the only decent records at the first boot leave in the bag of someone who got there fractionally before me.
I love the title track from the Tanega LP - I have it on 45 and was listening to it only this morning. What's the rest of the LP like?
Also, what's the Bob Lind like? He's someone I've been meaning to check out for ages but never got round to it. Again, this morning I was listening to Noel Harrison do a song that is apparently written by him called A Dusty Old Room and I really like it.
Like he set up that 'Red' charity thing, where you buy red ipods and stuff and a bit goes to charity.
Except their annual advertising budget is larger than the amount given to charity, making it nothing more than a publicity machine for Mr. Vox.
Also, he named himself 'Bono Vox'.
Who does that?
"Jumping cues and making haste just ain't my cup of meat"
I have a copy somewhere - not an outstanding album by any means but a real nice one to listen to from time to time
Also got the Lind but never checked it out - only know this masterpiece of melancholy - can't recommend it enough -
sorry to hijack this Nige mate
Banned (DJ Anchovy)
madrid fleamarket yielded these for a euro a time, haven't heard them yet!
Tender agression (dieter reith) - disco sandwich
chico buarque - o prestigio de - comp
chico buarque and maria bethnia
silvio rodriguez & pablo milanes live in Argentina

"THIS IS A FINE TAPE AND BRINGS BACK MEMORIES OF YESTERYEAR WHEN THE MUSIC WORLD WAS GOOD AND NOT FOULED UP BY THE LONG HAIR SCURVES WHO JUST BEAT WILDLY ON ANYTHING AND COME UP WITH A LOT OF STUPID NOISE THat only damnfools and liars say they like it"
You thought the leaden winter would bring you down forever,
but you rode upon a steamer to the violence of the sun.
The Lind was a purchase based on the track Eleanor being comped on Sergio Paradise's 07 Xmas mix. For me that is the highlight of the LP. I think you'd dig it Jimmy. A cheapie even found online in the UK, which never seems to be the case when I look for US LP's on these shores.

A not bad weekend. Got the following batch of 45's from the one shop. Most were either 50p or a £1 barr the last 2.
The Who - Substitute / Instant Party (Reaction) Never realised Circles by Fleur de Lys was a cover of a Who track but why the name change? I see even The Who changed the name from Circles to Instant Party
The Ides of March - Vehicle / Lead me home gently (Warner Bros)
The Cryin' Shames - Please Stay / Whats news pussycat (Decca) - Was a £15 copy of this on the wall, I went for the 50p copy in the drawer. This Joe Meek produced R&B with Bob Dylan-esque vocals is destined for Sweden.
Aretha Franklin - Think / You send Me (Atlantic)
Georgie Fame - Because I love You / Bidin' my time (CBS)
Georgie Fame - Like we used to be / It aint right (Columbia)
Cliff Bennet & The Rebel Rousers - Got to get you into my life / Baby each day (Parlaphone) - Disappointing version of this Beatles classic as the song doesn't really come into its own until the outro. Shame because the drums are great through out.
Mr Bloe - Grovin' with Mr Bloe / Sinful (DJM) - One of the first records I ever bought. Pitty I new nothing about re issues at the time. Now, I aint that much of a snob but having my only copy of this on Old Gold aint very cool.
The Miracles - Mickeys Monkey / Whatever makes you happy (Tamla)
5th Dimension - Age of Aquarius Let-the sunshine In Melody / Dont cha hear me calling to ya (Soul City)
Micheal Jackson - Don't Stop till you get enough / I can't help it - MJ requests coming in thick and fast and I'm sure I can work this one in somewhere. (Epic)
The Creation - Painter Man / Biff Bang Pow (Planet)
Super Furry Animals - Ysbeidiau Heulog / Charge (Placid Casual)
And from elsewhere
Alex Harvey - Agent Double OO Soul / Go away baby (Fontana)

As to the name change - I think there was a legal dispute over The Who's signing to Robert Stigwood and/or problems with stuff recorded with Shel Talmy. Initial pressings of "Substitute" had "Circles" on the b-side. This was then withdrawn and replaced with labels stating "Instant Party" as the title although the track was still "Circles". Finally the record was issued with a third B side "Waltz For A Pig" credited to The Who Orchestra but allegedly actually by The Graham Bond Organisation.
Drastically reduced to 72p
As I said didn't even know Circles was orginally a Who track so out of intrest when I saw the single when flicking through I decided to take a quick listen to the flip and thought 'Instant Party' must have been a label mis-print.
