    I'm loving the 'Ahmed Abdul-Malik' record. I went on the jazzman site to buy the 'Chris McGregor' reissue and ended up browsing for ages as well as looking on YouTube for clips and ended up buying these instead. I don't regret my decision though.

    Mixed joy in Milton Keynes today with nice a stash of Funk & Soul 7"s at 25p each
    and the LP below which caught me by surprise considering what it could have been!



    This has very similar artwork to a super rare album (below) by the band Locomotive titled We Are Everything You Are



    However it turns out to be an Italian compilation which was released around the same time, shame...



    Still, there were better things were sitting in a charity shop box!

    Both on EMI as well, bet 'Norman Haines' wasn't happy if he ever found it! Maybe he 'nicked' it himself from the Spanish comp!

    Oh and another Ooofff on the singles. I have no luck on 45's in chazzas at all ever...

    my secret? I go while your at work!

    there was a huge box of singles in Age Concern, the woman said "the bloke who sorts them didn't come in this week so we thought we'd just put the box out"
    music to my ears haha, so I just sat on the floor and picked anything remotely Soul or Funky as I honestly didn't know a lot about these - just diggers intuition.

    As an aside still cant find anything about the 'Fernery Fair' single but the follow up release was this:

    http://www.discogs.com/A-Band-Called...elease/5893265

    Funnily enough the 'Doris' single which is ABCD01 is credited to 'R.Webb' as is my 'Fernery Fair' single, don't hear any heavy metal in it mind you!

    I'm really enjoying the A side to this (Poor Man's Dream) complete with flute, the flip not so much, from my bit of research and a blog post (which also alerted me to ABCD - A Band Called Doris, Doh!) I'd say this was the 'Doris' acoustic guitar player and chief songwriter's solo project no idea where he/they were from or how many were pressed being a private press. I wonder if he did an album under the 'Fenery Fair' tag.

    Only 4 releases shown on discogs for the label a single and album by 'Doris' and this. I'm pretty sure the dutch CD shown has been misfiled!

    Was in a recycle shop looking through the LPs the other day, all priced at 500 yen, about 3 quid each, which would have been OK if there had been anything interesting, but there wasn't, at least not for that price. Then I spotted this on the shelf:




    Hmm, image from discogs not showing up. Anyone know how to fix it?

    https://www.discogs.com/Beatles-Arti...elease/3059778

    I asked the owner's wife how much it was and was a little surprised when she said 300 yen. All the discs are in there and in good condition. I guess I just got lucky this time. I'm not a huge Beatles fan but there's some interesting stuff I haven't heard on it before ...

    Hmm, not a bad score on the face of it, but really this is just a collection of stuff that's been out there on the web for free download for years, if you could be bothered to do the mousework - I'd guess the quality varies quite widely since a lot of that stuff was horribly compressed...

    I would never have been bothered to do the hard labour. I'll give it a listen, rip if necessary and send it on it's way. I'm a big fan of even really dodgy bootlegs. The 1st one I bought was an Echo & the Bunnymen which sounded like it has been recorded from inside a cushion. This appears to have been collated by Beatles nutters.

    Here are a few finds from Warsaw last weekend. Only had time to pop in to a couple of shops but came out with some good LP's.

    Emil Dimitrov - Letter To Mama

    Lots of psychedelic rock on here.



    Czerwone Gitary - Rytm Ziemi

    With the excellent Coda, been after a copy for a while glad to see this pop up for about £5.



    Wojciech Karolak - Easy

    Lots of Hammond and Fender Rhodes on this one, yet another record I've been after for a while. This was my most expensive purchase at £15 after a bit of negotiation.



    The Keith Mansfield Orchestra - ST

    Polish pressing of the UK LP with Moanin and Soul Thing.



    Jacek Lech - Bądź Szczęśliwa

    The first track (Miłość Niekochana) is excellent and sampled by DJ Format.



    Novi Singers - Rien Ne Va Plus

    Introduction is the stand out track on this one.



    Alibabki - Zagrajmy W Kości Jeszcze Raz

    All female pop group with some jazzy numbers, Była Sobie Para has a good organ solo in the middle which is worth checking out.



    Zdzisława Sośnicka ‎– Zdzisława Sośnicka

    Haven't had much of a chance to listen to this but there are some nice moments with the Fender Rhodes.



    Alex Band

    Late 70's funk, described to me as EWF in Poland.



    Skaldowie - TY

    Cheap score in an antique shop near to the Chopin museum, only cost a few pounds.



    Brano Hronec Sound - Srdečnư Pozdrav

    I've been after this for years and I can't remember why, it's got a interesting cover of Aquarius but I'm sure there's something more.



    Bernard Kawka Featuring Ewa Bem - Metamorphosis

    Former Novi Singers member, this is a much later effort from 1989. The stand out track is Sky's The Limit which sounds like it's very late 70's (with the Fender Rhodes it's sounds like David Bendeth)



    Sarolta Zalatnay - ST

    Singing in English she's backed up by a few good bands including Skorpio, "It Would Be Nice" and "The Freak" are also on Hadd Mondjam El.



    Various - Na Szkle Malowane

    From what I've read it's for a Polish rock musical, lots of interesting stuff, Halina Frąckowiak Wodo, Zimna Wodo is the best track.



    Trubadurzy - Znowu Razem

    Some great bass guitar and drums on here.



    KPM 1225 - Industry & Awards

    Cheap purchase off eBay, an underrated KPM with the track Project Titan 2 by Nick Ingman.

    Bruton Brian Bennett - Drama Montage 2

    Not as good as the first but not bad.



    Peer International - Hit Man

    Probably say there's about 3 good tracks on this, this came from a complete Peer International catalogue which was given to a record shop in Ramsgate.

    A fairly quiet February with some decent charity shop finds. Particularly pleased to lay hands on the Bumpers compilation and the other two samplers are good too. This is my third copy of Children Talking. I was very happy to pick up a copy of Ram after mislaying mine.

    Lil Louis's French Kiss seems to crop up in charity shops these days making me feel old so I pretended it was the mid 90s and I was buying it for 12 quid in Eastern Bloc.

    Boogie Woogie is generally ear poison for me and every New Years eve is slightly ruined by just knowing that Hootenanny is on the television. Still how often do you find interesting 78s in UK charity shops? So I bought this:

    Are non record finds allowed here? How about these box fresh Koss K/6s? All the foam intact, beautiful in their own way:


    And a pretty blue case too:

    And find of the month so far is this - New Wave of British Heavy Metal 7". Likely to move on but nice to find and mint with it


    edit: the Koss history is worth a look actually - beautifully laid out site
    http://www.koss.com/history

    edit 2: High Treason are having a second crack at the extremely rare hand made picture sleeve with a new version of Saturday Night Special on their website - 50 only which sounds like the kind of thing people here like to hear: http://high-treason.net/product/supe...icture-sleeve/

    I sold my scratched copy of the 'Bumpers' comp a few years ago and have wanted it back ever since but I never see it out and about anymore and it always seems to go for 20 quid inc postage on eBay these days.

    It's got some lovely stuff on there, John and Beverley Martin and Nick Drake on the same side for one. The same charity shop had the CBS Fill Your Head with Rock sampler and I left it behind purely because my dad's got it - cue 'odd reasons to leave a record behind' thread.

    My local shop Mark. It was a great collection. Too expensive for me though. Loads of Parry Music and Bruton's left plus various random labels. Probably 200 or so i reckon. He also has a nice copy of the first Whatnauts LP at the mo and a shed load of blues and soul 7" just in..

    Hot diggidy! Im out of the loop, some bloody good finds. Those 45's HG! Awesome.

    Some VV fodder....





    Nancy! Nice top conditions....ooof the version of Fridays Child on this too, banger!


    Funky funks, always overlooked this one and passed it up whenever I seen it.


    one quidder on oxfam and I heard rumours about this too....


    Always need to purchase anything titled "Super Dude". This is good enough to warrant picking up Super Dude II if I ever see it.


    Another silly cheap find that otherwise is impossible for me to secure in the wild.


    This was a nice find for the price too


    Some good ol' rooster


    This has some very sampley moments on it, plus I never bothered checking Man out and as per my recent discovery of love for most things prog....


    This is another one I always overlooked/passed up on, its really good like some nice cheese and crackers type funk, like an apricot stilton


    more sampley proggy frog psych like....and the 3rd album ive bought by traffic, might as well go for the whole lot now


    This was in the psych section and its pretty battered but it was cheap and its not that great but it will do


    This is overrated, I don't understand the hype surrounding this, I was pretty disappointed but its nice enough I suppose and it was cheap.


    Caught by surprise with this one, another one I never expected to see in the wild and it was just stupidly cheap too.

    Fancy is essentially a one break LP. Not a lot else on there, nice break though.

    And 3rd Avenue Blues Band has a great version of 'It's Your Thing' and 'Mean Greens' is pretty good also. And an excellent cover.

    Some finds been after this for a while so was happy to find this spanish version of 'The Keating Sound' featuring 'Basil Kirchin' and 'Tubby Hayes' (apparently on woodwind, I assume flute.) no less in EX condition. Sadly not a gatefold:



    Stunning music though some of the co authored Kirchin arrangements shine through like 'Brave New World' on side 2 and the third track on side 1 sounds like the music that is playing when 'Terry Thomas' is watching black and white porn before he has is blood drained in the 'Dr Phibes' movie. The whole thing is great not your usual big band fare at all and is all over too soon or at least seems so.

    http://www.discogs.com/Johnny-Keatin...elease/7798607

    and a couple of singles one on white vinyl quite recentish only the cdr of one on discogs:

    http://www.discogs.com/Morton-Valenc...elease/2411263

    http://www.discogs.com/Tim-Fite-No-G...elease/1445073

    Mentioned on another thread I bought the reissue of this which is one of the best things I've heard for a while, why had I not heard or heard about this before? Jazz crossed with Progressive Rock with a huge dollop of soul with superb musicianship, wonderful dynamics and its all kind of un-describable really, that's my best shot:

    http://www.discogs.com/Bruce-And-Vla...elease/7546119

    and a sleeveless copy of the mighty Tull's 'Thick as a Brick' quite scratched but will probably clean up and make a nice companion to my badly mastered reissue, was only 99p no idea of pressing neither do I care but the vinyl seems nice and thick not quite as a brick though. EDIT: To my shame I looked it up, read the matrix and its a first press. Now I can be all Steve Hoffman and compare and contrast!
