    Midweek digging in Milton Keynes and the odd car boot in Northampton, I get around.


    Two Ronnies LP's crop up quite often but I'd not come across this cheeky Music Hall
    influenced one from '69 before and gawd-blimey it turns out to be pretty good!





    Double pack of the first 2 JC LP's on the great Fly label, I love that logo







    some 50p singles






    If this 7" from 1960 was from a series I'd love to find a Football one







    I've heard of Helen's work but not seen her albums in the wild before
    and this one has a tatty sleeve (on the rear) but the vinyl is beautiful.





    Highbrow spoken word/classical music discussion





    Sadly not a Vertigo original but a clean and tidy Bronze issue





    Not the best Traffic album but gotta love that sleeve.






    UK issue of their 3rd LP - they still do nothing for me so will pass this one on




    I picked this 78 up for the title alone - looking it up I discovered he had done one called Hiroshima too,
    my best find of the week was a super clean copy of The Animals debut album (posted in the 'Digging' thread)

    End of July was a bit of a buying feast for me. Part 1 is from the record fair in a smalltown on Saturday. Still small but a bit bigger than usual actually, they used an extra room to house 2-3 more sellers this year.

    Sly Stone ‎– Recorded In San Francisco 1964-67
    Not as freaked out as the Family Stone but still some really good and more quirky than usual takes on soul/funk.

    Chaino ‎– Voodoo Drums

    Later German pressing of Jungle Mating Rhythms from 1958. Very good percussion and vocal/chanting/grunting exotica. Cool build up with tuned drums.

    Sonja Salvis & Gustav Brom Orchestra ‎– Send For Me

    Nice but unfortunately very easy. Some Bacharach covers and similar.

    Manu Dibango ‎– Manu 76
    Afrogroove. He uses the discoey stompstompstomp rhytm a bit too much for my liking, but is otherwise good.

    Tangerine Dream ‎– Sorcerer
    Dark, moody and excellent electronic soundtrack that I've been waiting for turning up for the last 6 months ever since I started listening much more to their earlier albums.

    Maxime Le Forestier ‎– Saltimbanque
    Too much straight chanson.

    Nucleus With Leon Thomas ‎– Live 1970
    Previously unreleased collaboration. Was interested to see how the spiritual jazz of Thomas blended with the fusioney stuff from Nucleus, but it turns out Nucleus pretty much adapts to Leon Thomas. Still great music though.

    Manu Dibango ‎– Big Blow
    As the one above, but better. One track wouldn't sound out of place in a hardboiled 70s cop movie, but I still would wish for less of that discoey drum.

    Variety Orchestra Oktava - S/T
    Latvian orchestra plays... with variety. It's schlager at the core but blended with beat, jazz, rock and even a slightly psychedelic track. Bit all over the place and very varied but has some really good moments.

    Ravi Shankar - Charly
    Soundtrack that's quite nice. Interesting to hear Ravi utilizing many non-Indian instruments. Could wish for a bit more edge though.

    The Arrows Featuring Davie Allan ‎– Cycle-Delic Sounds

    OG to replace my reissue. Biker soundtrack type twang'n'fuzz fest with this monster on it:





    Todays adventures will follow....

    Part 2 then. This is from a mini "vinyl market" today. See pic from other member in the Day to day digging pics thread. Very nice initiative! Much appreciated. Apparently it has been done before but I have completely missed out, but I thought I heard some people talking about more people than last year. These are mostly (only?) non-professional sellers but collectors clearing out their crap. Lots of cheapie bins, didnät spen more than £28 for this lot.

    Jerry Fielding ‎– The Gauntlet
    1978 soundtrack to action movie. Surprisingly it's for the most part pretty straight jazz, I had hoped for some more action. Comes to life every now and then but as a whole a bit... meh.

    Donald Byrd - Caricatures
    Jazzfunk of some sort. A bit late and too polished for my taste.

    Mongo Santamaria - Mongo Explodes
    With a title like that I had kinda hoped for something wilder. It's good latin jazz, but doesn't really stand out in the crowd.

    Orera - S/T
    Georgian pop. Doesn't really stand out either. I believe they have done some really good stuff though.

    Willie Colón ‎– El Baquiné De Angelitos Negros
    And here the luck turned. Put the needle down on the first track and was met with the deep drone of a moog of doom that just went on, and then the latin percussion kicked in. Supercool track. The rest is more standard latin but with added string orchestra for a more cinematic feeling. It's also good, but not like that first killer track:


    Julius Hemphill ‎– 'Coon Bid'ness
    Unfortunately skips a bit in the first track but as luck would have it that's a short uninteresting track anyway. For me this freejazz with plenty of structure (the drums and bass usually keep a steady rhythm pattern over which the horns freak out) is at its best in Skins 1 with some amazing rhythms and then the sidelong Hard Blues which is amazing.


    Tamba Trio ‎– Avanço
    Very nice bossa with some jazz touches.

    Eddie Palmieri ‎– Exploration
    One I thank... Babycart I think for mentioning here years ago. Been waiting for a copy to turn up ever since. This is a stellar latin jazz album with some for the genre (imo at least, not really being an expert) unusual tinges of avantgarde. Wow. Here's a slow groove:


    Willie Colón & Ruben Blades ‎– The Last Fight
    Another Willie Colon soundtrack but this is less interesting, more standard vocal latin all through.

    V/A ‎- Cairo By Night
    If you're gonna buy bellydance albums, one thing to look for are the ones with moog. This is one of those - and if you like me can quite like some bellydance music every now and then this is also a really good thing. If you don't like that kinda stuff it's not for you despite the moog.

    So, there's a Malmö fraction of VG+, then.
    From the same vinyl market as Brainbomb. Really nice initiative, and even better than last time. Most sellers are indeed non-professional, and the rest just semi-professional.
    Recognized one seller as he bought quite a few records from me when I cleared out in a apartment block sale in May. A few of them were now in his out crate...

    Very happy to find these Tages additions. The 2LP compilation is great, but I don't understand how they could leave out Fuzzy Patterns. Maybe it dwells a bit on their early days. Speaking of which, this copy of their first album looked a bit worn, but was said to play EX. That was an exaggeration, still 9£ for a solid VG with really nice sleeve is still a find.


    I was a bit disappointed by the lack of 45s, but after a while a guy arrived with carrier after carrier of latin LPs, and a £1 45 box. Found some great things in there, just a few of them here:



    This one has me intrigued. Seemingly a private press, probably from the 60s by the look and sound of it. Very few clues at all. Google turns up nothing, same with Discogs and 45cat. Sounds like a home recording, vocals and acoustic guitar, pop numbers. Sleeve printed by AB IrKå-tryck who did a lot of the 60s Swedish pic sleeves. I must rip this.



    And this blew me out. Scorching fuzz goodness. I didn't see this coming out of a £1 box

    .

    The opposite is sadly very common. High prices leading to record mountain syndrome.

Its the way to do it, he knows what shifts and what doesn't so everyone's happy.

    Yeah, I've been inspecting grippers in shops, charities and bootsales to see if I can figure out who you are. Nothing concluded yet, hehe.

    That fuzz 7" is sick.

    Likewise. I'm trying to keep a low profile.

    Sick indeed. Will be among my top finds this year.

    Reading the lyrics to the Don Estelle 45, I'm hearing a light reggae beat. Is the backing light reggae?

    Cover looks like some lost 80s synth classic from Sheffield. Apart from Agnes your heart would then sink at seeing Don Estelle's name across the front.

    I can imagine him grumpily lugging a pile of them them from the boot of an Astra parked outside a rundown shopping mall in full Safari suit as a bunch of children hurled abuse at him, poor old Don at least he was safe in the knowledge that Rochdale has a wonderful Town Hall!

    Sadly it's not reggae based, there's more than a hint of Billy Joel in there somewhere. This was at the height of Don's experimental 'provincial shopping centre' phase so it is heavy on the Casio synth and vocals and not much else. Maybe Sheffield was an influence, though it is more likely to be Rochdale.
