    These are from Feb but got a couple of cheapies at the market yesterday so in the Mar thread they will all go. Market, record fair, record shop and charity.



    Joe Beck Nature Boy (Verve) A solo LP from the same guy who played guitar on Kudos and possibly CTI releases (can't be bothered to check if he played on the latter). Anyway, delighted with this LP for a fiver. Not exactly wacked out psych but late 60's tracks with plenty of fuzz and wah wah with great arrangements. Bit of folk funk at times and 'funky' rock/pop tracks. Solid LP.

    Eric Andersen - Avalanche (WB) - From the same box at the fair for the same price. Not as solid as the above but still some nice 60's pop. Particularly like Louise which has that choppy stabbed guitar rhythm and some slight phasing on the vocals during the chorus. Again, very happy with this and the type of LP I could live happily off from record buying trips if only there was more of this type of stuff around for cheap.

    Buddy Miles Express - Expressway To Your Skull (Mercury) Minty UK copy so that's a bonus straightaway. Everyone will know the deal with Buddy so no explanation required I guess.

    Dr Marigold's Prescription - Pictures Of Love (Marble Arch) I thought long and hard before handing over the huge sum of £7 for this. The picture and group name promise so much more than the music does. It really is fairly bland 60's pop and I like my bland pop! I think the sleeve, label and perhaps one or two OK tracks dragged me in. Anyone a fan and can convince me of it's merits?



    Fela And Afrika 70 - Fear Not For Man (Afrodisia)
    Fela And Afrika 70 - Opposite People (Afrodisia)

    So myself and Craig popped to record shop after the fair that I hadn't been to for a while and they'd got a few nice bits in. Nice little section of classic more 'common' funk records ie JB, K&TG etc but a few more 'interesting' bits. I only got my first Fela LP a few months back so surprised to find a couple more in the area. Total Fred Wesley/JB's sound going on with both LP's, which is no bad thing. Seller took a brief look at the records, noticed a few scuffs so priced them at £2 and £3 respectively. Both LP's play with barely a click so can't be vexed at that

    Kay Gee's - Keep On Bumpin' & Masterplan (Gang) Had many copies of the Find A Friend LP by them over the years but had never stumbled across this one. Happy to get it for a few quid and file it with my other tepid funk

    Black Fist OST (Happy Fox) Missed this a few years back at the market so the same dealer a few years later gets another copy. Two funky instrumentals Can't Stop Talkin' and I'm Your Man are the pick for me. More tepid funk to file.



    Tremeloes - Master (CBS) Picked this up in Edinburgh a few weeks back and had been wanting a copy since Mr Sayers nabbed one a year or so ago. Some great rocky proggy glamy tracks that will appeal to the VG+ sensibilities.

    Long John Baldry - Wait For Me (Pye) A LDJB tip off at an Edinburgh record shop. One reason to buy this and one reason only...Sunshine Of Your Love. Absolutely cracking version. A redeeming take on Spinning Wheel but I need a cover version of that as much as I need to hear another cover of Light My Fire!

    Marilia Vinicius (Discos Age) Brazilian/bossa LP that has some nice female vocals and jazzy touches among the bossa. Not bad for a charity punt.

    Shianbashi Burusu ?? (Columbia) From the shop with the Fela's. Jap LP that I can't read. Pretty naff but one decent cocktail easy jazz tune worth the 3 quid I guess.



    Last Summer OST (Warners) Late 60's groovy OST. Few nice tracks and one particular nice 60's pop tune if that's your thing.

    Robin McNamara - Lay A Little Lovin' On Me (Steed) 3 quid punt from the fair which kinda paid off for one track. The sleeve notes suggest this guy had the lead role in Hair on Broadway. Does that blue eyed soul/rock thing but one track has a more heavy psych tinged feel about it. Just repeats the same couple of lines unfortunately but the groove is pretty good.

    Finesse & Synquis - Soul Sisters (MCA) One awful side and one good side produced by the Ultra's Ced Gee. Some good old UBB samples and female raps always sound great over that type of production.



    Geno Washington And The Ram Jam Band - Sifters, Shifters, Finger Clicking Mamas (Marble) Minted up at the market yesterday for the price of a cuppa. The cover of Syl Johnson's Different Strokes is the reason to get this if you don't have the 45/EP (does anyone?) I let the LP play on after Strokes and was impressed with (I Gotta) Hold On To My Love so I should really listen to the full LP for perhaps more goodies.

    The Golden Hits Of Soul (Allegros) Soul covers split between two UK club bands Night Train and Mark 7 Brass & Saxes. Good club band covers and liking the Last Night titty shaker instro.

    Seconded on the Joe Beck, nice album all round.

    Don't know 'Fear not for man', but 'Opposite people' is one of my favourite Fela LPs, and lovely to see OG Decca Afrodesia copies - rock solid pressings. Picked up a looks-rough-but-plays-perfect Afrodesia copy of the Lijadu Sisters 'Danger' recently - exactly a week before Soul Jazz reissued it.

    Well to my ears it has the same sound John so I'm guessing you'd like Fear. UK Decca must have done something 'special' to the vinyl specifically for the African market knowing they'd have to suffer some rough environmental extremes

    a mixed bag as usual

    This Bolan 45 from a charity shop - I wanted it for the (unreleased at the time) John's Children tune - which I guess makes this 80s 45 the original issue - I knew one would turn up eventually

    The Lillac Hand of Menthol Dan



    Went to a very mediocre record fair but I did find a few good 45s - one dealer had a wee stash of singapore 45s and eps including this




    Hush

    v cheap spare of this VG+ fave - going to the NE



    Beast Day

    soul bootleg for pence

    Best Thing For You Baby



    spare brassy 'mod' dancer



    There You Go

    Fave find at the fair - v cheap heavy psych / glam dancer



    The Wizard

    cheap but scuffed up copy of this well known funker - not had one before!

    Bold Soul Sister



    Early 70s pop promo - took a punt for a quid - it OKish



    Nice bit of funky soul in the same pile



    Why Cant They Leave Us Alone

    A big Fuz spin



    cheap reggae



    Some LPs

    Nice Prince Far I.
    Cranium Pie (number 21 if anyones interested) - great stuff.
    Mel Lewis out of a charity mainly for the version of 'Get Out My Life Woman' - who sampled the start of that then - it's been bugging me.
    Humble Pie 2nd LP - nice when it's nice.
    Ten Wheel Drive - 2 tracker IMHO
    Hallo 9 - patchy as usual but some great tunes on there.



    The Sorrows is a Spanish 1981 repress but it'll do until a proper one comes along - great LP!
    Season - not even cracked the seal yet
    Can - I want more 12 - will get rid of 'flow motion' now as I reckon its shite apart from that tune
    Big Ben Banjo Band - Beatles go Banjo - I had to pick this out of the charity shop and I'm glad I did as it really makes me laugh when i put it on
    BBC Radiophonics - spare and gone.
    Geoff Love - spare and not gone

    Sorry no pics, but here are my finds from the weekend...

    Nucleus "Elastic Rock" (Vertigo)
    Real nice Vertigo swirl, the last piece of my Nucleus jigsaw - well, apart from that Ian Carr album...

    Lee Perry "Disco Devil" 12-inch (Black Ark)
    Scratch goes freestyle over Chase The Devil. Brilliant.

    Negril "Negril" (Klik UK)
    British issue of this amazing reggae/jazz album. My second copy in six months, glad to have found a minter because my JA copy has a nasty pressing fault. Enjoy "Lighthouse".

    Vaughan Thomas "self-titled" (Jam)
    My first ever Jam LP. Folky rock. Strange mix of covers and oddly-titled original compositions. I dunno, I'm still working it out. Produced by Mike Batt. Anyway, an LP on Jam... First one I've ever seen..???

    Ruby Andrews "Just Loving You" (Zodiac)
    Absolutely classic Northern 45 - wasn't cheap but then again it wasn't the price it often commands. Just lovely, lovely music.

    Frank Wilson "Do I Love You (Indeed I Do)" (Motown)
    The official 1979 UK release, demo 45. Really nice copy of the Northern standard. I don't care if it is considered played-out, I've loved this song since I was a nipper.

    Wayne Smith "Under Me Sleng Teng" (Jammys)
    It's all about that riddim.



    .
    If you're looking for a pristine copy then this isn't the one for you. The vinyl looks like someone has polished their brickwork with it and the label has been ruined by some fool with a pen.

    Still in the shop Lee. Instalments being paid so I'll hopefully have it this time next year

    Tasty stuff there Lee. Always amazes me how you (and a few others on here) pull really interesting looking 45's at charities. Total shite whenever I look.

    Only the Bolan was from the charity although having said that the charities have been good with the 45s of late. I've got a couple put by in the Oxfam music one for pricing - this means I'll pay more than if I left them to price it and put it out

    Dr Marigold's Prescription - Pictures Of Love does tend to disappoint. I don't think its bland pop so much as it is best seen as a post Band's "Music From The Big Pink" UK stab at Americana. One I actually keep going back to. In some wasy like some of those Grateful Dead albums that had very psychedelic sleeves but a lot of country, bluegrass and jugband type sounds therein.

    stopped off to check the 2nd hand bins at Conch (lovely place, you should all drop by) and got myself a superb copy of Les Baxter's Hells Belles OST - it's barely left the decks since I got it home.

    Theese are from the last two months.
    First off, some from the local indoor fleamarket.

    Will probably keep the pink floyd, rest is going to the booter pile.


    More from the same flea. Allways nice to find cohen. Am going to listen to Sinatra. Both Sinatra and Armstrong are probably going to the booter pile.


    From a local kind of semi secret used records and books store. It had a half price sale, so got these for very cheap.
    Gong is ok if you like gong.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4nu6X5yLrac
    Mayall, is a bit to oldschool for my likings on this one, but still kind of ok http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lza61XYa1uI
    The straight to hell soundtrack is great if you like the pouges and Joe Strummer.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0YVqt...eature=related


    Some 7ens from a local charity. I like the tremeloes because they sometimes have great b sides.


    Finaly some records from a local charity close to where i work. It goes to show that it can be a good thing, to look through the clasical record pile. Sometimes the old charity ladyes will mistake folk and prog records for clasical and place them there. One of The local record hunters/dealers had just left, but did not look through the clasical pile.
    Found theese. The first is disco and crap, in my opinion. The next is easy listening prog, and crap. In my opinion.
    The last one Akropolis has the worst cover ever, but turned out to be pretty rare danish prog. Best find this month

    No. If you like Gong it's fantastic.

    It turns out that The Ventures Perform The Jim Croce Songbook isn't a good as I'd hoped. And I wasn't aiming high.

    Another epic, in da prog sense, fail was The Enid. If I'd known thu were lead by a former member of Barclay James Harvest I would not have spent that euro. Must have mixed them up with The Eloy.
