    Default February 2016 finds

    It is now officially February, apparently.

    Last night, amongst other stuff I bought, I found a very cheap copy of Crystal Japan 7" by Bowie. Never heard it before. Sounds like a Heroes out-take. Will post the other stuff later.

    2 x Tip Shop visits = some 7" delights



    No LP's but some nice, mostly Folk finds


    EFDSS Records 1969




    Late 60's EP on Gus Records






    This B is much better than the flip on this teachers plea for more pay in 1970.



    A couple of old HMV EP's



    other 50p oddities



    Not heard of the A but the B is more familiar as the theme to Steptoe & Son









    A tatty sleeve but a nice find of Max's 7" co-written by Ian Dury








    Best find of the week was this record made to be played as you played.

    Nice finds HG especially those folk ones love things like that, whats the 'orange and blue' like?

    Me just a solitary find but in the same shop there was a pile of mostly 90's chart dance 12" like 'Snap' etc at a quid a pop, y'know real cheese and some guy hoovered most of them up, dont think he even checked condition. I liked to imagine he was some old school pub DJ or perhaps not. This was is it for me, seems Mint one side and VG+ on the other, weird:



    Kind of in keeping with the other thread I'd have hated this a few years back.

    Lol, Kind offer but I'm miles away to justify a square dance (many a bad school memory). Need to stay away from kiddie records and generic folk dance for a while after my last mix.

    I popped into a charity shop and what do I see a 50's HMV 7" of 'Northumbrian Folk Songs' luckily for me it was heavily scratched so I passed and picked up these two cheapies instead:





    The first one in its original sleeve lovely bit of exotica Brit stylee in 3/4 like any good waltz should be:

    If you'd lay off the sauce you'd find February started a few days before this post. I will admit to having just had a glass of something, but I still know February always begins on the 1st.

    I'd completely forgotten about Dankworth's theme to 'The Avengers' had to youtube to remind myself of it nice indeed.

    Cheap vinyl things I have picked up over the weekend


    UK pressed 7" in an 8" sleeve released on Social Records in 1963, it's a heady mix of fact and religious doctrine.





    A Canadian folk sampler from Irving/Alamo Records, but I've never heard of any of the artists
    and sadly there are no undiscovered Neil Youngs or Joni Mitchells amongst the 12 listed here.








    I had never come across this before, but was familiar with Alan Hawkshaw's Library music
    from the early 70's and this was a white label test pressing with info sheets enclosed too.








    Listening through this LP I'm still not sure what the connection between doctors and rugby is,
    and the f#*%$& thing has beeps and farting noises over all the f%@#&* swearwords too!








    Lemmy pops up on several tracks of this UK Decca album from 1959, oh no hang on...








    This was mixed in with a pile of dance 12"s and was released on BBC Records in 1971
    originally for use in schools but now more likely to be dropped into mixes and DJ sets.







    I have other Coronation St. related vinyl so I was never going to leave Rita Fairclough's LP in the 50p box



    Someone had to rescue this old steam engines EP

    I have a record by one of the artists on that Canadian sampler, Valdy.
    The sleeve gave me ideas it would be loner folk, but it's pretty bland singer/songwriter stuff, more upbeat and nonsense than you'd think from the cover.

    I also have an LP by one of the artists on that Canadian sampler: Offenbach.
    It's blues rock as far as I recall.

    Mum had a copy of Volume Two. I have happy memories of being 12 years old and listening to the brutal synthesised bleepings and working out what rhymed with, for example...

    'She hit the floor with a hell of a dunt'

    Shunt? Bunt? Erm, ?

    I have that 'Hawkshaw' soundtrack and mines a white label also albeit someone has neatly written the info on in biro sadly missing the paperwork though. Nice finds especially the Africa one on Decca.

    I just went into my local charity warehouse apparently he is expanding his vinyl section and having a big opening day come the second Saturday in March. 'With a proper DJ playing records' no less. He says he's been letting it stack up methinks that means its going to be piles of overpriced scratched rock records. I'll still go for the opening day I hope they play 'Agadoo'.

    Anyway here's a few bits and bobs I've picked up recently:

    [IMG][/IMG]

    The 'Orient Express' and 'Abdul Malik' are brand new reissues. Looking forward to diving into the Harp record and the 'Felix Slatkin' is a minty with a scuffed cover later reissue of this

    http://www.discogs.com/Fantastic-Str.../master/598724

    [IMG][/IMG]

    Phase 4 motherlode again mostly rubbish picked up some Aldrich that looked hip and country and a couple of Ping-Pong stereo spectaculars and left the Oompah alone. I minted up the debut 'Eternal Wind' album from eBay which was well worth it as mine is a little worn. The little 7 inch from 1982 is a nice little folk number despite its vintage, cant find much info on them. The other one is 'The Move - Night of Fear':

    I only have one Robert Maxwell record, and it's "Shangri-La" and I recommend it. Been keeping an eye out for that one, too.

    what's the "Western Heritage" like? I always pick up Western folk stuff, but the track listing on that isn't the usual lot ("Streets of Laredo", "Red River Valley", "Bury Me Not On the Lone Prairie", etc) - are they mostly show tunes?

    Spectacular Harps is a nice one, particularly for the harp version of Caravan on there. Shangri La has a more exotica feel overall, and is my fave out of the ones I've heard.

    I picked up the Maxwell as it had an interesting track listing and well its Harps! The 'Western Heritage' I'd never seen before and yet to listen but its one of those epic stereo story records about the pioneers of the American West so there is no track listing as such on the rear, looking at the track list on the inners its split into 4 medleys the only song that sticks out as being anything I know is 'Skip to my Lou'. I'll update when I've had a listen but I'm not expecting much.
