    Default july 2016

    Kicking off July with three 45s.



    Dave Davies - Hold my hand / Creeping jean. This has a couple of fans on here I'm sure. Creeping Jean is a top tune. DD isn't the flashiest of guitarists, but he is very effective. I like his style. As on Lazy Old Sun, it's a stoned, disorientating sound in a pop framework. Works a treat for me. No pic sleeve, so much cheaper than usual.



    Cleo Laine -If we lived on the top of a mountain / Don't you pass me by. Hands up, I didn't know this tune until I heard it as the lead out tune on LDJB's latest Eclectic Mud set on Mixcloud. Nabbed one straight away for less than a posh coffee. The lovely, lazy, brass sounds like a fuzz guitar fading in and out. Classy, cool stepper.



    Last one up....Put The Immigrant Song, Polecat Woman and a touch of Magic Potion in your cauldron, give them a stir and you won't be a million miles away from.....
    Bakery - No Dying in the dark / Trust in the Lord. Got lucky on a seriously under graded cheap one. Great Australian, heavy mover from '71.

    Youch. I didn't know Bakery had non-album singles. That's one for my list.

    The other one is Bloodsucker on RCA. Apparently the Astor 45 was a top 10 hit in Perth back in '71, so that should be a good hunting ground. Get Funktionnaire on the case "No Dying In the dark" is non lp, it came out around the same time as that religious lp they put out.

    I don't see singles that much. And when I do they tend to be chaff. All decent local stuff seems thin on the ground. Word is that Perth was very mainstream. I can vouch for it being mainstream when I arrived in the late 80's.

    Anyway, I'll put out some feelers.

    I like that Cleo Laine B side, hits the spot. Now I know I said I was staying away from chazza bins, well buying anyway but 3 'Wouts' in a week on S2S in Mint condition is a sign so I duly bagged this one. I was quite pleased with myself as I left a lot of things behind I might have been tempted to buy. They'd reduced some of the jazz in the charity warehouse but cover damage put me off and it was mostly comps or non essentials. :

    Sometimes only a sledgehammer hits the spot hard enough I like the lift from the Hammond though. Playing it lots on the old Hacker, can't wait to get it on the hi fi....if we ever get sorted

    I too bought that single for the B side but was then blown away by the A side:



    and haven't played the B side since!

    Here are a few of my recent finds.




    Harold Melvin And The Blue Notes ‎– Prayin 45

    Very much into Teddy Pendergrass and Harold Melvin And The Blue Notes at the moment. This is a later track of theirs, I am definately adding it to my 'would play at a wedding' list, Absolute BELTER.





    Gwen McCrae ‎– All This Love That I'm Givin' Reissue 12

    Pleased to find a working copy, originally released on a Cat 45.







    Ruff Kut Records - Compilation From 1991

    Ruff Kut records was based in Stevenage, I was born in Stevenage 3 years earlier, Other than that i dont have much Knowledge of this stuff.





    DJ Godfather ‎– Work That! EP

    From Hamtramck, Michigan. Picked up a little pile of Detroit 12's. This has introduced me to a genre Discogs lists simply as Ghetto




    Gene Clark ‎– No Other

    Im yet to give this a proper listen but am aware of the appreciation GC solo albums get around here.





    Neil Young ‎– On The Beach

    Chuffed to finally have this in my collection. Ive been listening to it for years, I Love 'For the turnstiles' and would advise seeking out The Be Good Tanyas version.

    Dragged myself out out bed at 6am on Sunday morning, wondering why I bother as there'll be no records today, whats the point and why do I put myself through it. Arrived at the ol' booter and it was only half full, so already not looking promising. Balls. Anyway, first box of records looked like it had been given a good going over by some geezer ahead of me, but a quick dip pulled out these.



    I was familiar with The Jazz At Toad Hall LP, and the Francis Bay and NYJO were mainly for the covers, but very pleased to pull the Daly-Wilson lp for 50p, and in great condition as well. "Dirty Feet" is a stormer, for those not familiar. Mobb Deep sample aiiiight.

    Was fairly happy with those and thinking that would be it, wandered round the corner to three boxes. Sitting right at the front was a Son Of Bazerk 12, nice! Grabbing that, the next record in was a Main Source LP, and then the next record was Chill Rob G on Wild Pitch and then Masta Ace, and on and on. 3 big boxes of late 80's - early 90's US & UK hip hop and dance, all in great nick. Got about 25 for £20, and ran out of cash, as I hadn't expected the hip hop motherlode to appear. Anyway, I had a wander round the other sellers and when I popped back 20 mins later to spend me last coins, the whole lot was gone so happy that I managed to grab what was hopefully the good stuff before it disappeared.



    I knew the NWA & The Posse LP, but hadn't realised how rare it is on this Malaco label. And NWA followed by Tim Dog, oh how I chuckled. Son Of Bazerk, Chill Rob G and Main Source in the bag.



    UMC's Give The Drummer Some on Next Plateaux 12, Gang Starr, EPMD and Jungle Brothers. Low End Theory is later reish, sleeve a bit damaged, damn. Great to find a Blade 12" on his 691 label. I used to see him wandering around Lewisham back in the 90's, and I never did stop him to buy a record as he told everyone to do.



    Hijack's Doomsday Operation and the Badman Is Robbin' 12's, and first couple of DJ Shadow on Mo Wax. Sabres Of Paradise and Underworld making up the dance end.



    Also got a Duke Reid on Trojan & a Young Holt Unlimited lp (cover knackered, record in great nick) out the hip hop boxes. After that lot, a wander round the rest of field threw up the Carol Lee Scott LP (signed, naturally), a couple of indie reggae LP's and an 80's instructional LP teaching kids not to talk to strangers, including a real fun colouring book.



    (Sorry about pics btw, spots always make the records look worse than they actually are.)

    Popped into one of my local chazzas today and was pleased to find their regular £1 clearout was underway. These were well worth nabbing:
    Anthony Phillips - Private Parts & Pieces 3 (RCA 1982). Guitar pieces with Enrique Berro Garcia - some lovely stuff, mostly Spanish/flamenco but with the odd piece venturing into Pink Floyd wigout territory.
    Manitas Et Les Siens - Manitas De Plata live at Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer. More guitar magic. Lovely 1967 CBS copy (orange label) in great nick.
    The Association Greatest Hits (Warner 1969). Great nick and some cracking psych/folky/poppy songs I'm sure many of you are familiar with.
    The World of Blues Power (Decca 1969 Stereo) -quality mix with Peter Green and Clapton era Bluesbreakers, Savoy Brown, Ten Years After and more. Tasty.

    Great Haul Bennyboy bit of everything to satisfy the ears there.

    Funnily enough Mac I picked up that Manitas LP (must have getting on 10 of his LP's now I keep meaning to look its not a re-release of something I have, its in the listen list.) the other week to add to the growing collection of classical guitar and flamenco no one seems to want these days. A rich vein of powerful music indeed!

    Market was on needed some head space so grabbed some freebies:

    The Crofters Live at the Water Mill Bit of cover damage and all the singnatures have rubbed off the back but am always interested in Private Press folk from around these parts I don't think this one is though. Engineered by John Hassell another Brit Reggae connection? may well be a London group then. :



    Various Artists - More from the Vaults Various Rock and Roll on Liberty. The cover drew me in I have no idea whats going on here. :



    I AM - A Celebration of Praises This is from Canada what I would think is a Hare Krishna record from 1983. I'll update if its any good. :



    Bobby Goldsboro - A Butterfly for Bucky A guilty pleasure and kind of in joke around here. If I make a swap this year he'll turn up in it somewhere, be warned. :

    It's on Sweet Folk & Country, a well established folk label active in the 70s and 80s, so not a private pressing.

    I've seen this too, a very confused design inspired by the word 'Vault', I think.
    It's almost as bad as the german edition of the Other Half's LP:

    This is a christian record - a Hare Krishna record wouldn't have the Star of David on the front.
    On Word or Marantha.
    You never know with this sort of thing, though my verdict based on th ecover only would be a no.

    Cheers Miles, the signatures made me think PP straightaway Edit: Just had a look through the 'SFC' discogs page don't think I've come across anything on there before, I see a lot of what looks like more Cornish stuff 'Carrot Crunchers', 'John the Fish' etc, taking it they are a mainly Southern based label?

    Yep its an odd one that Liberty and pretty staid track listing in the main.

    The Xian is on 'Marantha' but a quick look at the track listing makes note of Psalms and words such as 'Shalom' so you may well be right in fact I'd say you were. Not listened, 'There but for the grace of God go I' and all that although I have dared a couple of their children's albums in the past.

    Here in Sweden we have the wonderful invention of Swish. Payment on the mobile directly from your bank account to the sellers'. You punch in the sellers phone#, amount, and verify with your BankID pin. Seller's phone goes Ping! and verifies he has the money.
    Most sellers have it here now. Good for either when you hit the motherlode, or for example last weekend when a really nice Who's Next turned up for 50p. I was all out of change and so was the seller, but I could swish over the 50p!

    That could also be a bad thing. I'd be swishing left, right and centre.

    What is going on in that Other Half sleeve? It looks like a still from some Trainspotting/Death Proof hybrid.

    Went to some local sport clubs thriftshop in a smalltown and found three different generic sleeves in the Klub Plytowy Polskiego Stowarzyszenia Jazzowego series. Some kind of record club in Poland. Two of them are made from what looks and feels like thin brown cardboard, one has generic picture on the flipside too with no info, one has the generic back pic but with added print for liner notes and the third one is the same as the second but made from a different material with a white sleeve and a hint of gloss.

    Tomasz Stańko ‎– Fish Face
    Weird trio with Stanko on trumpet, Janus Stefanski on drums and American jazz drummer Stu Martin on drums and ECM synth recorded in 1973. Free jazz but with lots of focus on rhythm patterns and weird electronic sounds. Excellent, especially when Stu crams out some weird rhtymic sounds from the synth.

    Wojciech Karolak / Michał Urbaniak / Czesław Bartkowski ‎– Podróż Na Południe - Moving South
    Similar freejazz with structure. It's a full suite and excited me when I found it because I love early Michal Urbaniak electric jazz violin and this is also from 1973. Curiously there's a 4th musician at work here too, not listed as a band member at all but mentioned further down in the liner notes as "Ring Modulator and Phasing by Brian M. Taylor, England" so there's weird electronic sounds on this one too. Never heard the name, any of you Brits know who he is?

    Studio Jazzowe PR I Soliści* Dyr. Jan Ptaszyn Wróblewski / Czesław Niemen ‎– Koncert Podwójny Na Pięciu Solistów I Orkiestrę W Wykonaniu Studia Jazzowego PR I Solistów / Piosenki Rosyjskie W Wykonaniu Czesława Niemena
    Phew, what an entry. What you need to know: first side is Jan Ptaszyn Wróblewski led big band jazz that has semifunky moments and some really free workouts too. There's 16 members in the band and many famous names like Stanko, Seifert, Namyslowski etc. Stu Martin turns up here too. This side is really good. The other side is Czeslaw Niemen and it's by far the most boring stuff I've heard from him. Sounds a bit like Christmas Carols performed backed up by piano and acoustic guitar. It's not even jazz. So for me it's a really good onesider.

    Nice one Brainbomb, gets an OOfffff from me as they sound absolutely bonkers!

    'Brian M. Taylor' the name rings a bell. I could be well wrong and probably am but something is telling me he is some kind of synth designer/engineer. I don't know why probably the mind playing tricks.

    I made a charity shop sweep yesterday and came up empty with records, but I found these two beauties.
    A grey and a blue Spisar-Box for 45s to add to the two red ones I already have, I think I have all the colors now.

    In the same shop there was a curiosity I've actually never seen, a 4-track cartridge. Luis Gasca - The Little Giant, sealed and all.
    I thought about snapping it up for £1.50 but I have so much useless crap. It's not like I ever would be able to play it.
    If it tickles anyone's fancy I could see if it still is there, in a box on the floor with a few tape reels.
