    Default August 2016 finds

    It's really too hot to be outside in Japan at the moment, so I regretted going to a street market, though at least it was in the shade.

    Early morning was OK. Little flea market. Arrived 6:30, left at 8:00.

    This strange LP turned up with some instructions for setting up your quad system plus a few songs on side 1, but on side 2 Enoch Light & the Light Brigade doing covers of Theme from Shaft, Proud Mary, The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down, Marrakesh Express, California Dreamin' and the Doors' Touch Me. That last one has probably made Jimbo turn in his grave.



    Various - OTTO Quadsonic Stereo Record 1972

    Then later in the day at the street market:



    The Milcho Leviev Quartet - Blues For The Fisherman (Mole Jazz - MOLE 1). Not sure about this one yet, but it was cheap, so I took a leap.



    Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers - Live In Stockholm 1959. Never seen this one before but I love Art Blakey.

    Earlier in the week a cheap copy of this turned up:



    Ella At Duke's Place 1965. Didn't know this one but the reviews seemed promising. As always, Ella's voice is incredible. I don't know the songs well yet.

    Not been on a dig as such but passed a shop and couldn't resist this for a quid if only for the authentic conga on the front... Oh has one of those horrible plastic inners Ben was so peeved about but I think in this case it has probably saved the record from getting mould on it. Despite not being able to get the bloody thing back in its sleeve! :

    Found this 45 in a 25p bin today, I couldn't find anything about it online but as Argos came into being circa '73
    with the death of 'Green Shield Stamps' (I can't be the only one here who remembers them!) I'd date this somewhere
    around the mid 70's. It's got around 5 different jingles and songs on it, the best of which is this one
    At a guess I'd say it was used as a promo maybe at some trade fair or other, I can't imagine them ever selling it.

    The Lyntone catalogue number (LYN 2692) would suggest 1973. LYN 2694 is Geordie's Popswop single from July that year.

    Not finds as such one from discogs and a couple from a website summer sale:

    Boom Bip and Dose One - Circle Discogs purchase cheap copy. I seem to be picking bits of anticon stuff here and there some I have already on CD others not. Some of their releases never got a vinyl issue. Dose One did an album in 2005 called 'Ha' gutted to find it was CD only. Anyway makes my head hurt to think this was recorded in 1999. I remember hearing it and thinking it's like the 'Beastie Boys' crossed with 'Faust'.





    Vagon Brei - The Secret of Swamp Castle Hauntology for those who remember fondly Sega Megadrives, General Midi sounds and all that. Its Pink and comes with a free fridge Magnet, why I have no idea. On 'Mystic and Quantum' who I've juts discovered for this kind of thing.:





    Francis Juno - Platform Romance Same label but slightly darker albeit on white vinyl, soundclips piqued my interest along with the price.

    Following up the finds from last month, I ripped the strange private press I found at the music fair.
    I give you... Amazingers. Zero info on the interweb, or at least what I can find.
    Recorded in a bedroom and straight to vinyl?

    It's from October/November 1973 if the Lyntone pressing number is accurate (LYN 2673 was released in October and LYN 2705 in November so somewhere in between)

    It's actually Invesible Man on the sleeve. Running out of I's on the Letraset sheet?
    And it's Lawrence - Wagner on the B-side credits as well, dontcha know. Lennon - McCartney, Jagger - Richards and Lawrence - Wagner...

    Still, it was printed at AB IrKå-Tryck. They printed a lot of Swedish picture sleeves in the 60's.

    Aha.

    Changed to Invesible Man.

    Sure, go ahead, no credit needed. It's actually Invesible Man on sleeve and Invisible Man on label

    Monster tat haul today from some local charity shops I hadn't been to for a while, mostly 50p each, probably a good thing that most places charge more than that.



    Arthur Fiedler/Boston Pops - Beatles - don't often see his records around, and he was quite respected as a conductor. The arrangements sounded like they might bea bit orchestral and not enough pop though from a quick needle drop
    Richard Schory - Re Percussion - Saga UK issue. I've got that later Dick Schory LP with "Jungle Root" on, this one is an early Command-style percussion style affair
    Mancini comp - nothing very exciting bar Peter Gunn, but I liked the sleeve and hadn't seen it before
    James Last - Rock Me Gently - hadn't seen this either. All Canadian composers. Mid 70s, and funkyish in parts. Even got a break
    James Last - In Russia - enjoyed Stanley Black's "Russia" on Phase 4, was interested in hearing what the hairy Herr would do with Sabre Dance etc
    Manuel - Carnival - didn't especially want this, and think I had this years ago, but the guy forgot my change and couldn't open the till until the next customer so suggested I took another


    Bonnie Koloc - spare
    Silver Mount Zion - Horses In the Sky - bit surprised to see this (nothing else new in the shop). I liked their first two albums, more so that GY!BE, but never bought later ones like this, they'd started to look even more pretentious. Not played yet’”
    Family of Mann - First Light - had this years ago but sold it. Sounds funkier than I remembered
    Seventh Wave - Things To Come - prog synth duo from 1974
    Lesley Rae Dowling - no country listed, but turns out it's South African. Rock from 1981, her voice reminds me of someone. Kate Bush?
    Man Jumping - Aerotropics (remix) / In the Jungle (remix) - sleeveless 12", nothing else remotely similar in the other ~500 records in the shop. 80s avant garde funk thing


    Songs of the Auvergne - my mum had this or something similar, used to hate it as a child, thought i've give it a go...”
    Haydn - Cello Concertos’
    Rachmaniov 1/2 - Ashkenazy/Previn - got a box set of Anievas, but it's a bit lacking, so looking out for better replacements
    The Mediaeval Sound - another David Munrow
    Euskal Kantu Zaharrak - folky basque compilation
    Scott Joplin 1 + 2 every home should have them. Got these already but they looked mint, sleeves and all.


    Shakespeare - The Tempest 3LP Argo box set
    Open University - The Spoken Word poetry readings, probably dull but had a couple of anglo saxon poems about the Battle of Maldon
    Edwin Heath sample fodder, much better than the other Lose Weight record I have, where the unamed guy ("a top doctor") has the most boring voice
    Spanish - not sure i'd seen anything on Davjon besides Hymn's a Swingin'?


    Fisherfolk - hoping for some folky sounds, the blue sleeved one sounds like it might be all choir, but the other has some folkier sounds
    Billy Graham - probably a mistake but I liked the sleeve, have that other Billy Graham record with Tedd Smith "Smash and Grab World" on it, music on here is less exciting
    Adventures of Gus - kiddie religious record, stories with some music. Narrator has odd voice

    and finally

    Captain Noah and his funky break - had this years ago but gave it to someone back at a Salmon and Compass Brillo. There were a load of Kings Singers records there, sadly not the one with Life On Mars on

    Nice haul Bongo particularly like the percussive space age pop find. I found that Hypnotist record last year not sure whether I used it on my XMAS mix or its gone on to some tuneage I've made then again I could be confusing it with another 'Stop Smoking' albeit 7 inch record I found. Apart from the odd spin of 'Magic Fountains' in what are probably bouts of mental instability I don't think there is one good Manuel record but I am happy to be proved wrong!

    That Munrow record is class and really educational the amount of work he did on this sort of thing getting these old instruments made for him (not to mention playing them all to a high standard.) and researching is astonishing. His Bipolar was both his genius and devil, very sad end and reminded me that record in particular introduced me to him, fascinating man full of joy and enthusiasm for his work which comes across in everything he did.

    discussion on Waxidermy about old Herbie at the moment. I think this one takes me up to 17 - who is the VG+er with 20+?


    and getting close to that on Munrow - 14 I think although that includes a couple of box sets and also the Shirley Collins, Young Tradition, and Roundtable LPs he's on.

    the recorder one with Neville Marriner playing Telemann and Handel is very nice, picked that up fairly recently

    : If you haven't already check out Sad A Little Bit Heard this on Humphrey Lyttelton's BBC radio show when it first released ('81 was it?). I wrote it down on a piece of paper which stayed with me until I finally bought a copy on ebay a bout 5 years ago. Of course soon after that I found another copy in a chazza.

    Ella At Duke's Place
    - That one I have too - when I absorbed my parent's small collection into mine last year.

    Some chazza, some doormat, lots from a mates late sisters' collection.



    The 2 heaps in top left of the photo were freebies from my mates sisters' collection. She was his older sister. Music obsessed, as is he. Their parents are proper hoarders. The dad died a little while ago. The mum is losing it slowly, which is sad, but it does make clearing the house a bit easier.It's taken over a month to clear one bedroom to the point where it just looks really untidy now. Tucked away under stacks of 60s 70s and 80s travel brochures was the record collection of my friends departed sister. I got to go through them before the rest were shipped off to the chazza. Loads of Beatles, Stones, T Rex, some nifty mainstream funky 45s....I didn't really NEED any of it, but a lot of them are better condition copies of stuff I have already. The Renault 21 flexi was one of his mums!

    Dianne & The New Worlds - Tamla Hits. Stereo Gold Award exploit goodness with a handful of not very Tamla psychy jams with breaks all over them for people who get excited by that sort of thing. Ten bob well spent. Of course you'll know these tunes from other SGA lps.


    Silver Apples - Oscillations / Whirly Bird. Repro from earlier this year of their 1st 45. Good job.

    Greek Theatre - Sunstone ep. Only played this once so far but it's wonderful. Cheers for making this stuff a reality Sie

    David McWilliams - Days of Pearly Spencer. 20p means I can ditch the lp now.

    Chris & Craig - Isha / I need you. Chris Ducey & Craig Smith who later formed the Penny Arkade turn in a nice Eastern tinged, pop/psych 45 from July '66. Nothing on Youtube amazingly!

    Hyperglo - Experiment in colour. 90s cover of the fantastic garage 45 by The Blues Company. Competent version.

    Christie Lane - Johnny Remember me / I need the sun. Top version of "Johnny", couldn't find a clip.

    Feminine Complex - Hide & Seek. Wurlitzer Jukebox 90s repro of this killer, creepy, girlie pop/psych job



    SWap shop ep- nabbed it from the chazza to remind myself of the theme. Needn't have bothered really.

    Tapiman - Love Cpountry / Walking along the line. Spanish, '71 LC has great drums, congas and nice snakey lead guitar lines. Shit Youtube clip available, which gives you very little idea how good the 45 sounds.

    Have that Feminine Complex LP and it's good but Hide&Seek is the standout track together with the psychey (or at least popsike) It's Magic:

    "Only one thought left, that makes me come alive,
    and that is you and me side by side, on the licorice ride"

    1973 was the year that Argos started - the first catalogue (https://issuu.com/retromash/docs/argos-no01-1973-74) was launched in the summer of that year by the guy who invented green shield stamps and was inspired by the US catalogue shops. It was launched with a show - "complete with dancers and specially written songs". Which must be where this 45 originates.

    I remember reading somewhere that Hide & Seek was a hit in America somewhere. I checked and couldn't find any other reference to it being a 45 release, so I suppose I was wrong to call it a reissue.

    Interesting!

    Nice haul sir. You don't see that Diane and the new worlds too much anymore.

    What's on that Ventures ep? I'm guessing 'Walk. Don't Run' will be on it given the title?

    Some bits and bobs from a busy weekend booting. I saw a huge box of CDs in the back of someones car
    and asked to have a dig through, wondering how much they were she said "whatever, 25p each - 5 for a quid"
    I pulled out some Eno, Beatles, Hendrix, Bonzos etc and there were about 50 so I offered £10 and she said
    "oh for Christsakes just have the lot for a tenner!" so I came away with a lot of the buggers but I'm going to have
    to do a cheap CD stall at a car boot somewhere as I now have instant stock!




    the odd singles


    early 70's German Pop





    I now have Freds' old copy of this Easy Listening EP





    How nice to find a train record I didn't already have!






    Goth Rock on Motherkare Records







    In with several other mostly UK FX albums was this weird US one







    I picked up another Mikron Theatre LP earlier this year, this is one from a couple of years later,
    originally only available by narrowboat







    Nicest find of the day was this 12" from 1986 with 3 different versions of the Dr Who theme in a fancy hologram sleeve

    An unexpected trip to Glasgow last week allowed time for a wee trawl around the shops.

    Found this long time and harder than you would have thought reasonably possible want:



    Slightly-delic. It's the Mike Vickers involved side you want.



    Also found one of these:



    Easily the best copy I've ever had in my hands. Sleeve is like new and vinyl is minty. Great LP and was a contender for my VV / VG+ 10 LPs list

    Also made a couple of cheap punts.

    Firstly



    The jury is still out on this one. The 'rock' band is a bit polite and do they really need that many singers all at once? Cant' find any details on the WWW about this at all.

    Also got a copy of this (sorry forgot to take a pic): https://www.discogs.com/Andr%C3%A9-P...elease/5286569

    which turned out to have a rather splendid track on it!

    "..hole...road...middle thereof"

    Wow! Nice hawl, Head Gardener. When you've taken out what you need, you'll have enough left over to sell and pay for what you kept. That's always in the back of my mind, when I'm digging ...

    Things got a lot more interesting for Craig Smith. Flying to close to the sun or something, he transformed into Maitreya Kali, and did a couple of lps of "out there" stuff. Mike Stax is a bit obsessed with the guy and has written a book about him.
    I was going to post a link to Discogs for the Ventures ep, but it doesn't appear to be listed on there.
    Tracks are; Walk Don't Run, Ram-Bunk-Shush, Silver City, Perfidia. Liberty LEP 2131.
    Didn't know about the Cilla lp Lee.
    Everyone tear down your own little wall
    That keeps you from being a part of it all
    Because you've got to be one with the one and all
    You've just got to be close to it all
