    Default Finds March

    Yesterday I bought Pat Williams Treshold, a record I knew nothing about. Turned out to be good big band jazzfunk or something. Nice flutework and stuff...

    Not had any spare funds for ages but started off buying again this week with a purchase of Leyland's finest thrashers classic cut of Ghostbusters with both the normal (right) and deleted (left) sleeves for a lot less than the £30 they have been going for lately

    Yes almost a rip-off, only he switched the face for a fish

    I like "rainbow", but the track that gets me is "Beauty within the beast". Haven't gotten further than those two yet as side one's been on repeat
    What's the comp? More similar stuff/recommendations?

    Picked up a pretty good soul compilation on the strength of it having a cover of my favourite Elton John track (Bad Side of The Moon) and also arrangements by Barbara Moore. It's Silver Soul Volume 1 on DJM, 1970.

    Anyway the artists featured are: Birds Of A Feather (they have the arrangements by Barbara Moore), Una Valli, The Flames (both from South Africa) and The Chants and Pic & Bill (UK I think)..... Good solid covers of classics and a few originals.

    I've found out a little about the artists but anyone know anything else? I'm no expert on soul artists

    Thanks - I do love a bit of context

    Also picked up a copy of RD Burman's Dum Maro Dum / I love you EP 45 for the grand total of 50p..... don't really expect to find that kind of stuff in charity shops around here! Its a great couple of tracks that are new to me.

    Another single caught my eye - loved the cover - Ricchi e Poveri - Rischiatutto. 2 tracks from what I suspect is an Italian children's TV show. Il Fantasma is rather charming - in a Bacharach kind of way!

    Rischiatutto is an Italian game show of some description - is this the theme tune that's on the 45? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uI2P4jA780c

    I wish

    No - both vocal things by 'Ricchi e Poveri' - don't know their connection to the show....

    Default Philidelphia Record exchange big Dyke Folk Jamboree

    Spent the last two days In Philadelphia and between seeing the Liberty Bell and soaking up the great permanent collection of the Museum of art managed to spend an hour down South Street (in the record district, according to the where to go go and what to see guide)

    Philly Record Exchange was the first port of call, where the proprietor informed me "the founder of Olivia records brought a lot of the label's overstock)

    So sealed copies of the following for about a dollar a piece

    Cris Williamson The Changer and the Change Olivia 1975 (second press)
    I recently posted this up on the bins section because Waterfall was the basis for an RJD2 track. Must say its a solid listen throughout with banjo work from Grey Today scribe Woody Simmons on one track too.

    Lavender Jane Loves Women Woman Wax Works 1974
    Great private press looking album with Kay Gardner amongst the ranks. Apparently the soundtrack to Roll Over (must IMDB that one, can't say i'm familiar with that gem) Great floaty SSW folk with nice flute flourishes from Gardner

    Cris Williamson
    ST Olivia Repress 1981
    Her first album on Ampex from 1970, with a mouthwatering array of session men. (Chuck Rainey, Grady Tate, Kermit Moore, Eric Gale ect) Knew it from the J Dilla sample but a consistent Psych lite folk album with some up tempo dancers.

    Holly Near
    Hang In There Redwood Records 1973
    Debut album that has a mellow feel despite the heavy subject matter she deals with . Great art work too

    Kristin Lems Oh Mama ! Carolsdatter Productions 1978
    Yet to listen too it, but Moog, Flute and Arp make it an interesting addition.


    And some other bits , all less than $8


    Linda Hopkins
    ST RCA 1972
    An upbeat Showtunes soul album . Great voice but over done somewhat. Bob James and Wade Marcus arrangements for Shake a hand and Its my Beat make it a keeper

    Bobbi Humphrey
    Satin Doll Blue Note 1974
    No Introduction needed , quality flute jazz from the Mitzell rnks

    Donny Hathaway Extensions of a man Atco 1973
    My first Donny album in the wild. Great tracks .... The Slums is my favorite, a great slab of conscious funk

    Eric Andersen Tin Can Alley Vanguard 1868
    Over orchestrated on my first listen. May be a grower.

    Women Folk Man o Man RCA 1966
    Heard Their take on A times they are a changing on a Mix CD a while back, hoping for a similar vibe.

    Dick Grove Improvisational Course Volume IV (Modal Improvisation) 1976
    Open 4/4 drum breaks, thats all.

    Lalo Schifrin The Cinccinati Kid MGM 1965

    Les McCann Bucket o' Grease Limelight 1966
    Origianl press for $2 . Great song choices with a latin flavour. Meaty drums too


    Lets hope for more Black Gold
    Rock on Penderyn

    Soulfire is quite good in my view - if a little derivitive

    Really like that Cris Williamson album - think I posted up about it way back when.... but didn't get as much as you from Lavender Jane - think I may have got rid of that one so no chance of a reappraisal! The cover did look great though, I recall.

    What does "simma" translate to? Slacking?

    Litterary "Swim"
    But in the context, "slack" is more accurate

    Yup, I had a copy (the one on Ampex) too, and I have to agree here (unless you mean "shockingly good")...

    Everytime I read the title of this thread, i visualise a lot of shambling, middle- aged blokes walking in formation, waving lesbian folk raers or private press cabaret records over their heads and chanting something or other that can't be made out, because actually, they're kinda mumbling in sync.

    Stop the presses!

    I actually found some good records in Hull. All Oxfam.

    They had this Lorriane Ellison LP for £9.99

    http://www.soulstrut.com/reviews/rev...p?item_id=2825

    I was a bit wary - it has 3 good groovers on it. I countered the risk with and OG copy of Herbie Hancocks Fat Albert LP for £5.99 and the best bit - a lovely copy of Lulu's New Routes LP for a mere £1.99.

    fucking stellar soul LP, don't worry about the "groovers", head straight to the title track, one of the most heart-wrenchingly magnificent pieces of music I own.

    Lorraine Ellison - Stay With Me

    of course, the Herbie's no slouch neither, but it's got its nose pressed up against the window, looking longingly through the glass at the glory of the Ellison LP. GREAT FIND.

    Märts started good for me, I found from local old book store record I have wanted for long time.
    The Jumping Jacques - Sugar & Spice I guess I saw it mentioned on VV long time ago, downloaded it and loved it. It is great record by me. I want more records like this in my life. It is German press, but I still am wondering how have one ended over here.
    the Copper Plated Integrated Circuit from same store. I can't trust moog records, so I had to come home and do search over here... OK, it has one great track and nice "synthesize live sound" "used in the battle-scene introduction".

    Last week I got there Melodiya ensemble "Concert in Bombay", it has been mentioned many times and it's good I have heard it now. Also got one polish jazz record from cheap bin (=scratched or wrong records in wrong (great looking) sleeves). I was surprised it was priced down as everything seemed ok, at home I found tiny scratch which didn't skip. Record is Skleroptak, mine is later reissue with generic sleeve. Pretty groovy jazz on B-side.
