Well it's Wednesday already and nobody has started a fresh thread for the week so I'm taking the plunge and starting one myself and I'm setting the bar very low.
Following my lack of finds in Yorkshire (see holiday thread) I went a bit mad and picked up 15 records yesterday on my first dig after returning home. The first 2 pics are from one charity shop and the other 2 pics from a bric-a-brac shop with a few £1 bins that I've haven't checked in a long time. No major finds but spent less than £8 so pretty happy.
UB40 - Signing Off (Graduate Records). Debut album and includes the bonus 12".
The Settlers - The World Of The Settlers (Decca). Not played yet and get the feeling it won't be any good. Anyone want to speak up for The Settlers?
International Series - Stereo Sound Stage (Philips). Got covers of Hawaii 5-0 and Shaft theme amongst a real mixed bag of tracks.
Paul Simon - Still Crazy After All These Years (CBS). Not played yet but like the track 50 Ways To Leave Your Lover.
Tomita - The Bermuda Triangle (RCA Red Seal).
Marvin Gaye - How Sweet It Is (MFP). Comp of tracks from 64-69. Not played yet.
Martha Reeves - Dancing In The Street (MFP). Nice comp of tracks from 63-67.
Eric Gale - Ginseng Woman (CBS). Bit too easy jazz funk.
Andy Mackay - Resolving Contradictions (EMI). 2nd solo release from the Roxy Music saxophonist. Supposed to be a concept album with references to Chinese culture and featuring some of his Roxy bandmates. Unplayed and not expecting much.
Stealers Wheel - S/T (A&M). Bought for Stuck In The Middle With You. Played it a few times now and quite like this one.
Emerson, Lake & Palmer - Trilogy (Island). Not played yet.
The Mel Lewis Orchestra - 20 Years at The Village Vanguard (Atlantic). Needle dropped this one and it sounds too light for me.
Woody Herman - Woody's Big Band Goodies (Wing). Has a Thelonius Monk cover so thought it was worth a go but again a needle drop doesn't excite me.
Repercussions - Earth And Heaven (WB Records). Mid 90s acid jazz album. Sounds a bit dated now but quite a good album all the same.
George Melly - It's George (WB Records). Can't say Mr Melly shakes my world but prepared to give this one a chance. Bought for the cover though which I love.
