Four ones to try out from the cheapie bins - I'm not expecting much but for £2 a piece I hope at least one is good enough to keep:
Nina Simone - I put a spell on you
On what looks like a Philips cheapo label: International Stereo Parade. I wouldn't know since I don't care so much for keeping track on labels. Probably some comp - I might have all or most of the tracks on other records. I wouln't know since I can't remember song titles very well.
John Abercrombie - Timeless
ECM from 1974 with Jan Hammer on organ, synth, piano and Jack De Johnette on drums and John on guitar. This could be anything from mindblowing to utter shite - not familiar with Abercrombie at all and a bit sceptical of the things I've heard with Hammer so...
Brother Jack McDuff - Hot Barbeque
Expect some kinda jazz-funk/soul.
Charles Lloyd - Weavings
I quite like some of his stuff - this is from 1978 so big fusion warning over it.
Is that 'Wislanie 69' 45 any good? My finger's hovered over it as a cheapish BIN several times but I've never quite felt confident about pulling the trigger on it for some reason...
a giant steam-powered turntable in warwickshire plays six foot cement recordings of Prince Albert's speeches to the rejoicing populace
pull the trigger if it's cheap Wayne - one nice beaty pop number and the album sounded ok too / some nice hammond but not solid by a long chalk !
Banned (DJ Anchovy)
There's also a lot of records in a big antiques place, at the south end of Lord Street. Lots downstairs but piles more upstairs as well.
got in some enjoyable digging on Satdee and snagged a few 7s:
Cozy Cole: Big Noise from Winnetka Pts 1&2 - too cool with spoken intros an' all.
John Schroeder Orchestra: The Fugitive Theme - giving the drummer some.
Shadows: Stingray - early octaver on the guitar?
Paper Dolls: Something Here In My Heart
Sounds Nice feat Tim Mycroft: Je Taime/ Love You Too - really liking the b side.
Sandy Edmonds: Give Him My Love - really happy with this one, she was something of a beat singer here in the 60s and was (reputedly) invited to join the Seekers post-Durham. But she went bush and disappeared in India for about 40 years; only resurfaced a couple of years back.
and These Wilding Ways: Can't Control Her. another happy local find. was an offshot of 80s group the Screaming MeeMees and to my mind is an unsung kiwi classic in a sort of Mighty Wah sort of way.
Now celebrating over 1000 posts of nonsense.....

"World Of Kenny...." includes tracks from 'Pieces Of 8' (1959), 'One Over The 8'(1960) and 'On Pleasure Bent' (1967). All the "8" sketches but one are by Cook including Asp & One Leg Too Few.
Never seen a copy of One Over The 8 !
Got 5-6 Holloways inc the early stuff (Lion & Albert, Albert Comes Back, Sam Pick Up Thy Musket...) LOVE IT ! Grew up listening to the 78s...got quite a bit of music hall including a bootleg of Kate Carney !Perhaps I should oblige with a picture. As I mentioned before this was a charity shop find and the sleeve look like it had been used as a dog chew. A liberal use of glue has restored the worst of it thankfully. Some of Holloway's most famous monologues on here, Albert and the Lion for instance. The monologues are all from the thirties given a buffed up re-release to cash in on the popularity of My Fair Lady:
Never seen that before - that's another want ! Dick A Dum Dum is surely the highlight of Des's career ?!I have the album, Jim was a surprisingly versatile singer songwriter, from early bubblegum pop singles (Be My Girl, Sugar Time) through comedy classics (Piccadilly Line) and Kings Road-esque swinging London hits (Dick a Dum) to, as you say, much more introspective and reflective songs. he also managed to pick up an Oscar nomination during that time for Georgy Girl.
