    One of my favourites. Maybe even a "Desert Island" LP. It's been reissued a couple of times. Once by the Agnes B clothing concern with a different cover, I think.

    I thought I had another Young Folk LP but I was thinking of this LP, it's quite similar in vibe
    and dates from 1969 a bit earlier than the other one

    Bad weather spoiled most markets/car boots here. One curious £1find though.
    This is on the Proprius label that I probably have been on about earlier, Swedish audiophile label founded 1970, mostly choral,organ,folk, jazz,Xian.
    Composer Torsten Nilsson caught my eye as he has been on some of their more prominent releases.
    I didn't have that high expectations of this 1972 double album, Septem Improvisationes Pro Organo, but it turned out very much different than I thought.
    I figured it would be soothing Xian, but it's dark, heavy, brooding, alternating between eerie Gregorian and frantically atonal. Seven pieces representing the seven major church feasts, and then an eighth one that's even further out there.

    There is extremely little information about it on the net, I had to add it on Discogs. Unfortunately there's a warp on one of the records, but it plays OK still. Too bad as they are flawless apart from that.

    http://www.discogs.com/Hogia-Llandeg...elease/2699185 The guitars on the cover drew me in but this is pretty dire country with added 'one man and his dog' sound effects. Its scratched to hell too, bah.

    http://www.discogs.com/Alti-Glaibasl...elease/2765048 Interesting cover and if I didn't have toothache and was thinking straight I'd have probably realised this was swiss marching band music. Still I will find a use for this on an end of year mix to negate the 50p shaped hole in my wallet.
    Hogiau Llandegai's Defaid William Morgan is an anthem in Bethesda. My grandfather was in the band back when they were a skiffle band and before they went pro .

    Here's a contemporary take on it

    Yeah, quite a lot of the early versions of songs that ended up on Witch are up on youtube, and you can really hear the Burroughs influence in her delivery.

    Not made it to the flip, it was the opening track 'Mynd i'r Fan a'r Fan' which had the added sheep dog ambience.

    Popped into the local charity warehouse on the way to the dentist yesterday on the off chance they had replaced the box of Andy Williams heavy vinyl they've had in there for the last couple of months and after fighting my way through the OAP day trippers discovered they had. Not had chance to listen to much mind you.

    [IMG][/IMG]

    Dave Brubeck and Jay and Kai - At Newport

    Clifford Brown - Vol 3 The vinyl in this is so thin at first I thought it was missing the record.

    Horace Silver - The Best of Blue Note score! albeit a kind of pointless 'greatest hits' still a good listen though.

    Sarah Vaughan - I Love Brazil Latin tuneage from the jazz songstress.

    Dave Brubeck - Time in Late 70's reissue.

    Stan Getz - Getz Au Go Go Live bossa set from 1964.

    [IMG][/IMG]

    Carman Cavallaro - The 3 B's Ivory tinkler ripping off Alan Moorhouse.

    Duran, Grapelli, Holloway - Brandenburg Boogie From 79 jazz interpretations of classical works. This is either gonna be pretty cool or very straight laced and I suspect the latter.

    Ronnie Aldrich - The Way 'In' Not come across this album by mr two pianos before.

    Sarah Vaughan - Songs of the Beatles 1981 and as per title really.

    Dave Brubeck - Summit Sessions

    Richard and Linda Thompson's Sunnyvista 1979 release.

    [IMG][/IMG]

    Miles Davis - Your'e Under Arrest Not familiar with any of Miles eighties works. This one features 'John Scofield' and 'John Mclaughlin' among others (including bloody Sting) and features Miles looking like MC Hammer complete with horrid eighties jacket on the cover and what looks like a dodgy face lift. Was this his last album before he corked it?

    Thelma Houston and Jerry Butler - Same Motown from 77.

    Bobby Hutcherson - Natural Illusions Reissue of the vibraphonist's album on Blue Note from 1972 on Applause records.

    Carmen Cavallaro - Songs of our times More ivory tinkling.

    Love Unlimited - In Heat

    Carmen Cavallaro - For Latin Lovers Plinky Plonk in a latin style.

    Otto Weiss - Twice as Nice Alongside Stef Meeder what was it with these soft porn album covers for geeky Hammond players?

    I also found a 1950's copy of 'Atlas of the Sky' full of lovely hand drawn diagrams of star systems but the deal breaker was it contained some handwritten pages of Star Trek fan fiction.

    Snarfed.



    Good God - S/T. Rather good instrumental prog from early Seventies Philadelphia band. This is their only album. Two things majorly appealed to me: a) the guitarist is called 'Zeno Sparkles' and b) it includes versions of Zappa's 'King Kong' and John McLaughlin's 'Dragon Song'. Great to have a version of KK without any Zappaish looning on it - better than the Ponty one - and some neat originals too.
    Mazlyn Jones - Breaking Cover. On an initial listen, one of my favourite finds so far this year. Folkish guitar with spacey synths, ebow and other electric guitar prankery, and miscellaneous addenda (santours, spoons, a Bodmin Youth Opportunity Scheme chorus...). All somehow tumble together into something deeply moving and folktronicish.
    Gustav Holst - The Hymn Of Jesus. Been on the lookout for pieces other than 'The Planets' and this is really, ahem, stellar. Gorgeous choral piece, powerful ballet piece, and a sparse / brooding / mysterious 'Egdon Heath' - Holst's favourite among his own compositions.
    The Teddy Charles Tentet - S/T. Early exploration of 'modern' in jazz - you've got pieces and arrangements by Mal Waldron, Gil Evans, Jimmy Giuffre, George Russell, all sounding fresh as a daisy and brilliant throughout.



    Spiteri - S/T. Well known Venezuelan rocker.
    Intergalactic Touring Band - S/T. A cast of thousands contributing to this conceptual space oddity - cheesy rocking sci-fi 70s fun. Which is a bit rubbish.
    Charlie Mariano & Jerry Dodgain - Beauties Of 1918. The hit songs of 1918 done a la bop - pretty cool!
    Thelonious Monk - Big Band and Quartet. Never really get excited about Monk, but worth another shot.



    Charles Mingus - The Clown. I think this is even scarier than the original album cover, Charles is disappearing out of frame as he is pursued by a giant monochrome clown. I will be having nightmares.
    Richard Strauss - An Alpine Symphony. I used to love a bit of Strauss, but not listened to any for a long time. His time has come back round, I reckon, because this is great and ludicrously epic - the size of the orchestral forces is trumpted (sorry) on the back - Organ! Wind Machine! Thunder Machine! Heckelphone! 130 Players! Damn good.
    Duke Ellington - The Symphonic Ellington seemed like it would be interesting but recording quality leaves something to be desired, and The New Orleans Suite I am yet to crack into.



    Quincy Jones - Mackenna's Gold. QJ is such a great soundtrack composer... some very nice moments on here, check out the wonderful twisty-turniness of the 'Main Title':



    Elmer Bernstein - Gold. Another solid soundtrack, been waiting for this to turn up...
    Headstone - S/T. Looked like an interesting rock band + violin thing, but it's not really hooking me.
    George Russell - Othello Ballet Suite. Yet to crack this, it starts off with too much 'wha happen'...

    Love that Nigel Mazlyn Jones album, Sonovox. His others are well worth picking up too.

    Couple of reissues which were cheap. The blue phantom I'm sure is well known and been meaning to pick up a copy for a while, library meets prog. The Corporation promises much more than it delivers but has its charms.





    Couple of charity shop purchases. A pretty middling Martin Denny album from 1966 which opens great with 'Temptation' (which must have been sampled by someone) and then goes downhill + a minty copy of 'Bo Hansson - Music Inspired by Lord of the Rings' which I'm sure everyone knows. Did find a cd of Zakir Hussain alongside a santoor player and an ECM disc from 09 http://www.discogs.com/Ambrose-Field...elease/2065228 which looks kind of interesting.

    Hey old pals. I haven't been on here since last Winter so I wanted to say hi (and I didn't know where else to do it without making a new thread!). Hope everyone has been well. Some nice finds in here.
    See, you don't get those haircuts on your mp3s.

    New through the door

    [IMG][/IMG]

    Checkerlads - Shake yourself down / Baby send for me. '66 RCA promo. Don't think I've ever seen a stock copy of this top drawer 45. Promo only? Dancefloor gold on the top side, early Pretty Things style r&b on the flip.


    Ruperts People - Reflections...../ Hold on. US stock copy. Bought the promo before but it has Reflections.. on both sides. Hold on is (predictably) the one for me. Came cheap with the above as a postage sweetener.
    Kind & Kinky Zoo - Party chez le marquis / kinky regards.
    Kind & Kinky Zoo - La jupe volante / Bestial zoo. Never heard of this lot until I chanced upon them online. Both 45s easy to pick up cheap. La Jupe volante is the earlier of the two. Looping basslines, Fuzzy organ, busy drums, floaty flutes....

    Party chez le marquis, is a frantic organ, flute, bass, drum stuttery kind of tune, also very good.


    Jonna Gault & her symphonopop scene - What if they gave a war and no one came / Wonder why I guess. Not the similarly titled WCPAEB tune on the a side. All about the flip. Creepy, sparse arrangement, ......"shutting the door, losing the key, that's the only way I can really be me"..........this is some weird shit, dressed up in candy coloured disguise. Anyone heard the lp?

    You can't beat an uncredited acetate, can you? The chances of a duffer are about 97%, the anticipation mounts before you put the needle on it and... wow, that really is a great one. Sonic archaeology in action!

    That acetate is amazing!

    I have the Jonna Gault LP Paul - it's ok. Weird twisted pop and a few covers but the tune on the 45 is the 'one' imho.

    Another improbably pleasant winter’s day in Perth. Ho Hum. Not really the kind of weather for the musical astringency I usually inflict upon myself.

    Just as well I popped into some charity shops yesterday. Otherwise I wouldn’t have picked up “From All Sides” by Vince Guaraldi and Bola Sete (NM/NM). Ralph Gleason’s liner notes talk about Brazilian “saudade”, and contrast it with North American “spice and brashness and sentimentality”. He’s close, but I don’t think he quite nails it. It is certainly pretty and lyrical (to be fair, Ralph also said “lyrical”). And I’m not sure that it is any more than that.

    Not that it needs to be. A patch of sunlight indoors earlier was just the spot for basking in this early 60’s jazz/Braziliana.

    Mostly originals, and hence unfamiliar to me. “Chorro” I have heard before, but I wouldn’t have known that Guaraldi wrote it.

    Due for a reissue any day now, I see.

    On Fantasy records, but issued in Oz on Vocalion. Not seen that before.

    I hope to come back with comments on other chazza pick-ups as the day progresses.
