    Thumbs up March finds 2013

    Quite happy with my finds from the market this morning -



    Bar-kays - Soul finger (Atco)
    Hammond classic, only took me 20 years to find a copy!

    The Four King Cousin's - Introducing (Capitol)
    Chuffed to bits finding a minty copy of this great harmony pop LP, nearly bit the bullet a couple of times online. Finding three lovely black and white promo foto's inside was a nice surprise!





    Mongo Santamaria - Mongomania (CBS)
    Not had it on yet but I'm pretty sure what it will sound like!

    I was buzzing, it looks unplayed!

    No idea what your find is but it looks mighty interesting.

    I've mentioned this one a few times now and dearly love the whole LP.
    I know Tom B also has one and has spoken well of it too.

    Absolutely - how can a record with that cover not be brilliant?

    I made a house call this afternoon and found a couple of very nice bits.

    Origin Unknown - Valley Of The Shadows - Ram



    It's always safe to have a spare almost mint copy.

    I can not begin to explain how essential this tune is ........ (well, at least in my opinion)


    Citadel Of Kaos EP part III - Boombastic Plastic



    Early A-sides production. Nice and mellow.


    Bay B Kane - Guardians Of Ruff EP - Whitehouse



    4 tracker, containing the track Rhythm '93. I was looking for this track for quite some time, but never knew what is was. Today I found out!

    Only about 7 or 8 euro, that was also nice to hear.


    Bagga Worries & Jooxie Nice - Legalize (Quiet Storm Remixes) - Labello Blanco



    Lovely 10". Ragga vocals, amen drums. That's how we like 'em.


    Skoffin Allsorts - Defcon 1 EP - PM recordings



    1992 hardcore, sounded ok but not listened to properly yet.


    Ekude - Don't Be Affraid/L's Theme - Boogie Times



    Not super, but not really bad either. Mainly bought because it's on Boogie Times.
    Other 12"'s by Ekude are better in my opinion.


    Blapps Posse - Don't Hold Back '91 - Tribal Bass



    The flipside is the track to check: Bus It (It's time to get b'zy).
    Proper hardcore and in a nice picture sleeve!

    Ray Keith vs David Rodigan - Murder - White label
    Standard Ray Keith production from 2005 aimed at the dancefloor. Heavy drums and deep bass.
    The thing with Ray Keith's tracks seems to be that you either hate them or like them. I love them.
    Also bought because I never get tired of hearing the "Out in the streets they call it murder" sample.


    And last but not least the find of the day:

    X Project - Jah Calling/Sunshine - X project/Dubplate1



    Congo Natty related, both sides black label.
    This 10" was on my want list for a very long time, but I was never able to find a copy (outbid, already sold, misplaced, crazy price etc.....)
    I spotted a 10" Music House sleeve on my way out and asked what it was. The seller didn't know it and put in on the turntable.
    Within a second I heard it was Dubplate1, but couldn't believe he had this on a actual dubplate. As it turned out it wasn't a dubplate but a vinyl 10", but housed in a extremely nice Music House sleeve. I have never seen such a sleeve. It's in a rough condition, almost looks battered, but plays good enough for me. Not that I was going to leave without it ......

    All in all a very good afternoon. I can buy stuff like this all day and still enjoy it.

    Love that Origin Unknown - think I have doubles too... I don't know that dubplate you've found, but you seem well happy and it's always good to read about a plusser crossing a massive want of their list. So well done..!

    Me too. I always pick up D&B 12"s if they are in decent nick. Look out for the Truper 10"s for me, I've been after those bastards for a decade-plus but refuse to pay top whack. Keep me in mind..
    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.

    I think may may have been both of you in the same "Today I've been listening to" thread - fantastic LP musically - top set of songs that are "land-folk-country" with tickle of ye olde Gibby Haynes dry humour - the tip was more than appreciated.

    I will, but those 10"s almost never show up.

    I think the best change you have is finding a pile of cheap white labels (e.g. in a shop, not on Discogs) and remembering to look for SVDL07, SVDL08 and VDL 9.

    Maybe someone could try Bukem?

    Edit:

    It seems I'm completely wrong.

    Just read on Discogs that the number of pressed white labels of the Truper 10"s is 10 copies each, followed by 250 full release copies.

    Hmmm .... back to the drawingboard

    Quick trip to Mr Sundae's excellent Second Scene, a whirl around the charities (for the net sum of one LP), PO and a rubbish EH record fair has brought me:

    LPs



    Nice folk Rocky LP from Carolanne Pegg - I've learnt from the interweb that she was a member of Mr Fox. Really nice LP - puts me in mind of prime Pentangle.



    Nice cheap copy of the Hollies Evolution - second issue I think though - it's not as psych as the sleeve suggests but it IS a great mid 60's pop lp! If anyone needs my US copy give me a shout.
    Lovely blue label Stax copy of Albert Kings classic made with the MGs in tow. Crosscut Saw
    Early funky Kool and the Gang on a UK Mojo issue - Electric Frog Love the Life You Live etc....
    Spare of Los Puntos - bit of a one tracker I thought but upon revisiting I find it's a two tracker - Ya te has ido is my fave but En Otra Tierra is pretty good too - give me a shout if you fancy it.
    Rejoice - S/T - lovely UK copy of this slightlydelic LP with the wrecking crew all over it. Great version of 'High Flying Bird' amongst others.

    45s

    Spooky skinhead reggae!



    A gap filler - great tune!



    Nice 2 sider from a great horn rock LP



    Another shameful gap filled



    Spare of this great popsiker - spoken for though.



    Waxi approved xian psychy rock 45



    8 track Mirage Man 'mini LP'



    UKing up this doomy psych classic



    One track wins out on this EP



    whilst Polnareff delivers the splendid 'Beatnik' on this one



    and always nice to get back to the original

    I agree - a VV classic that doesn't show up very often..!

    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.

    Just a few bits this weekend - no camera to hand so please excuse Google images...



    THROBBING GRISTLE "Heathen Earth" (Industrial Records)
    1980 studio 'live' album. The usual sounds of the descent into a nightmare that TG fans know and love...




    WILD FIRE "self-titled" (Kalo Lao)
    1975 album from Trinidad. Cover looks amazing, shame the music really isn't that good. I'm gonna frame this.




    BRIAN AUGER, JULIE DRISCOLL & THE TRINITY "Open" (Marmalade Records)
    1967 Mono. Classic really, loads of good tracks.


    ... also got a Maytals "Pressure Drop" Island demo one-sided 45...

    Don't know that one. To be honest, I've only got Annual Reports 2 & 3, Jazz Funk Greats and now Heathen Earth. Oh, and the Mutant remix project. Love them all but TG aren't a band I fiend over. Just as and when. Saying that, Heathen Earth is the first TG album I've bought in over 20 years...

    [QUOTE=llmod1;511754]Picked up some heavy jazz pieces at this mornings record fair. Great to find a dealer happy to take Paypal, makes me feel like I got these for free!



    Magician - Magician - Only the second time I've come across this excellent UK jazz piece composed and arranged by Vinyl Vulture favourite Stan Butcher. This sounds nothing like his easy lp's though. On the Hobo label. Old thread about it here: http://www.verygoodplus.co.uk/showth...gician-quot-LP

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FLnqu9ApFOc

    C & K Vocal - Balada O Zemi - Second LP I've picked up recently by this Czech group. Not had a chance to listen to this yet.

    Carol Lee Scott - In Time - Signed, were any copies not signed?? Well known around these parts. Reissued by the Licourice Soul guys.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fEYaxZoQ188

    George Abdo - The Magic of Belly Dancing - Couldn't leave this for £1. Hoping for Turkish psych funk breaks!



    Mystic Minds - Mind Over Matter - Reissue of super rare privately pressed white boy funk LP.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aE_OeqtzF3U

    Sun Ra - New Steps - Released on the Italian Horo LP. Continuing my quest for all things Ra (and not the British imitator this time!)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4pHGXmwEaF4

    Horace Tapscott with the Pan African Peoples Arkestra - Seems that these are like buses right Sie! Great spiritual jazz LP.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dFC3gpBgEnA

    Sun Ra Arkestra Meets Salah Ragab plus The Cairo Jazz Band - Great Greek only LP. Jazzman reissued a 45 of the track Egypt Strut which is different to the version here. Does anyone know where that version comes from?
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ba64zwmdvKM

    The Pyramids - King of Kings - Great spiritual jazz lp with heavy African feel.

    good work, LLMOD, some very good records there.

    New Steps (with the woozy version of Favourite Things, Where There Is No Sun, etc) got reissued a year or so ago too, along with "Other Voices, Other Blues"

    This LP I think
    it's OK to head out for wonderful, but on your way to wonderful, you're gonna have to pass through all right. When you get to all right,
    take a good look around and get used to it, because that may be as far as you're gonna go.

    Very mixed stuff from several casual countryside digs this week...

    The unknown quantity: s/t - country gospel with a moment or two

    Ole Kock Hansen: Folkevise - Danish jazz folk a la Jan Johansson, nice and spiritual in parts
    Jean Ferrat: s/t - boring
    Solveig: s/t - Norwegian gospel pop with a funky track
    The heavy dozen - Dutch hard rock comp, seems pretty lame at first listen
    Charles Miller orch: Dancing a gogo - ez exploito, seems pretty bland
    Tommy Kinman: Plays for dancing - decent Hully Gully with solid drums
    Vacaciones en Las Palmas - have started paying more attention to Vacaciones recs lately based on the Los Mayas track mentioned on here, this one has Love story with funky backing and other groovy things
    Paul Marriat film collection - meh...
    Michael Holm: Zwei Gesichter - German Disco ...
    Groovin w Mr Bloe/Sinful 7" - b-side wins
    Valdemars orch: Mojn - Danish jazz with one prog jazz track
    Vacaciones en Mallorca - who knows?
    Leif Strands kammarkör: Sorgen och glädjen - Swedish xian jazz feat Domenrus, Gustafsson, Hallberg, Riedel, could be soulful
    Ala hesb wedad: Abdel Halim Hafez 7" - no clue...
    Ashford & Simpson: is it still good to ya
    Indeep: Pajama party
    Honey baby OST
    The Psychomodo: Cockney rebel
    Imagination: Just an illusion / New dimension / Changes - remixes
    Kongehuset: Istid - Danish semi-valuable rap
