    Default December 2015 finds

    I'm sure I've missed posting about quite a few November finds. I went to a mini record-fair in another town last week and dove into some cheap 45 boxes, and came home with a good pile.
    These are more recent though.
    In the mail yesterday:


    Maybe this is too obvious stuff, but when I by chance came on Tradera (Swedish eBay) to see that there was only a starting bid on this with minutes to go, I threw in a low bid which to my surprise was not overbid in the last seconds. Really happy for this and in EX condition, I really love Troggs 45s.

    From the charity shop yesterday.
    Christallen is Xian slightly funky horn rock from 1968 or 1969. I had heard a track by them that was promising, but turns out it was from the follow up, this one is pretty pedestrian.
    This is maybe the best track, an instro...


    Eileen is new to me, maybe a known Euro 45 here on VG+? Apparently she was American and moved to France, recording French, German and Italian versions of Boots. Being the daughter of Lee Hazelwood's publisher must have helped in securing the deal. I actually like this version, a bit rougher sound than the Nancy version.


    And this is the best label sleeve I've found for a while. No record to go with it, and judging by the label output there's not a lot I want.
    A POP on PEP is TOP, whatever that means?

    That's a great Troggs 45 CD. Very similar to the b side of Wild Thing too. Cool Scandinavian sleeve too.

    Consuming a can of Pepsi is an excellent notion?

    Having consumed your Pepsi, the resulting flatulence is something to be applauded?

    I'm not even sure that you could get a Pepsi here at that time.
    Their marketing department must have been on something at the time, judging by the slogans.

    "bolaget med de S-märkta skivorna"
    The label with the S-marked records. The S-mark would refer to the Safety stamp applied to tested electrical appliances, or the national sticker on Swedish cars? Or perhaps to the ruling party at the time, the Social democrats?

    "Schlager som slår!"
    Schlager that hits! Tautology warning...

    vinyl odds and ends I've picked up in the past few days



    I was most pleased with this curious Saydisc LP which according to the label is a 'Limited Edition',
    though it's hard to imagine it ever sold many copies. It was also released on CD a few years ago.







    The sleeve for this LP may have been inspiration for this Pink Floyd compilation as it also came out in 1971.





    Lovely tunes from Victorian Barrel Organs to musical boxes also released in 1971.




    I have bell-ringing albums but this is the first one I've found with them accompanied by a guitar.




    This was only 49p so I couldn't resist hearing these oldies slaying the oldies.







    A nice pair of JM comps.









    A BBC 12" single of narration for you to read / listen along to the Gremlins movie.

    Wow great haul Reza, I wouldn't have a clue where to start either but it looks magical. I think I used some of that 'mechanical music' on my XMAS swap cd last year HG.

    Anyway what with my wife's health and finishing off the XMAS Swap mix and masses of other meaningless shit like Plumbing problems yesterday it might surprise some that I haven't listened to any of the black stuff for a few weeks now (most of my music has been listened to via PC or mainly in the car!) but have picked up a few odds and ends alongside other stuff I've already posted that I still haven't got around to listening too:

    I usually avoid 'Swingle' albums but have noticed it gets a bit of love here so nice copy I'll give it a go same goes for Louis Armstrong but its all gospel songs so I thought it might be worth an ear. The Scott Walker although a best of is in stunning condition so couldn't leave that and a bit of guilty pleasure in Bobby Darin.

    The relate shop finally moved some of their 'Vintage Books' to the 20p section so picked up some paranormal gubbins and lots of sci-fi and general pulp fiction and a stray Carlos Castaneda which I already have a reprint of:

    It does have a picture with a filter on the back. It just doesnt do it for me, so it's in the out pile.

    DANSA MED TV, from reza's post, that's Jan Johansson, right?

    Never seem to see these kinds of old paperbacks anymore in charities. Have even seen charities near me bagging them up for recycling (can't properly recycle cheap wood-pulp paper anyway), without even putting them up for sale. There was a huge donated crate of sci-fi in an Oxfam books one the other day, but it was mostly more recent trashy (in a bad way) stuff, Star Trek, Star Wars and Dr Who spinoffs or bad fantasy. There was a nice series of old Tarzan books though (Tarzan Vs the Ant Men, etc) which looked more fun.

    re: Swingles - I always grab them. Picked up "Getting Romantic" the other day, very pleasant

    Any suggestions on later Swingles? I've seen a few recently, but not at punt-friendly prices.

    George Golla - Wives and Lovers. VG+/VG+. $2.

    Waiting for something else this morning I stuck my nose in a charity shop. Got this. Some scratching; nothing too intrusive.

    Tracks are, I am afraid, mainly hits of the day. But side 1 kicks off with a blues and a Golla original - "Waltz to Adelaide". Online commentary mentions "Waltz to Adelaide" in 'Libaek' terms. Well, the players here are basically Don Burrows' group. And those guys were Libaek regulars. So, go figure.

    On the plus side, there is a fair amount of open percussion here; there is a strong bossa vibe through the album. And there are some moments where you can tell these guys were used to each other as a unit - tight and smooth.

    The first hard copy I've seen, so I don't begrudge myself the $2.

    I've noticed 'World of Books' vans pulling up outside charity shops and filling up. I guess some of these things are getting valuable now. Reminds me of days at my nans with my Granddad's Western books and Grans paperback Ian Fleming's in the bookcase.

    Is Swingle II worth picking up I see that a lot recently but not took a punt?

    Also lovely bit of Skronk there Boney, would love those!

    These were definitely going for "paper recycling", although I wonder if the recycling places actually just sell them on to someone like World Of Books?

    I have Johansson's 'Radda Sverige' exercise jazz 7". Cool, vbut not overwhelming. Which are his best jazz releases, besides the obvious 'Jazz på Svenska'?

    I made the same mistake with this. One quite nice track - Elijah Rock - but definitely not a keeper. Anything good on those African LPs? Nothing there I recognise but I'm not an expert

    I cant remember the name but saw a van pull up one time may well have said something to do with 'recycling' on it and out of interest looked them up and it was indeed 'World of Books' related. They make a big deal about 'environmental impact' and 'recycling' and such. Seems more to do with grabbing charitable donations in bulk at a good price to sell on to make a profit. Is that a good or bad thing I don't know, bad when they are getting first dibs scooping up any potential raers for their own ends I guess but I suppose the business model is sound enough they've got to make a profit and saves a lot from landfill I suppose.

    I buy the odd CD off them on eBay they have the slowest postage of any eBay seller based in the UK I have ever dealt with. They even give themselves a 2 week estimated delivery time to get around it affecting their seller score!
