Had a bit of a trading session the other day/night: the first 6 were all sealed copies - I've only opened the first two so far: judging by the first impression, I have to say the Pidgeon s/t must one of the best albums of it's ilk I've heard - I've seen it many times before but been always kinda put off by the awful (and misleading) sleeve..saw it recommended here not so long ago and decided to give it a go this time, and I'm glad I did..so whoever it was, I'm using the opportunity to say "thank you"! And to pass the word to the fellow 60's popsike/baroque pop loving friends here, yet unfamiliar with this record: you should get it NOW..an absolute bargain to be had for - what, 10-20 bucks..?!
The Murder, Inc lp sounded like first rate (and slightly ahead of its time) crime jazz to these ears..
Also, the same session supplied me with this (2nd printing from -66):
edit: + 2 more lps I had forgot from the 1st pic: Bill Cosby's Badfoot Brown & Like It'tis by Aaron Neville, sealed as well:
Right after I had taken the 1st pic above this afternoon, I jumped into my car and went out to check out one of my usual spots: came back within an hour with these (guess which one - at 3.50 Euro - was the cheapest of the lot..?)
"Rörelser" is a brilliant Swedish mid-60's modal jazz dance album by the late Jan Johansson et co..
"Shangri-La"compiles some early work by a Swedish electronic music pioneer Ralph Lundsten..
Neighb'rhood Childr'n - s/t - to be listened yet, supposedly quality West Coast psych w/ femme vox (US original in ex condition)..
Also, earlier this week, had a chance to mint up my copy of this:
A Finnish mod pop/freakbeat lp from 1967 including young Eero Koivistoinen + a few future members of Wigwam..included a track from it in my last swap mix..
