    Default FREEBIES

    Need to clear some space. Nothing too exciting, but thought I'd offer them before they head out. Usual deal, postage from the UK, etc

    Sally Go Round the Roses - nursery rhymes educational record
    Sesame Street
    Wombles
    Dr Murray Banks - yiddish comedy
    Yoga For Health - double, with inserts, flyers, etc
    Bhagavad-Gita
    Self hypnosis

    Ethnic


    Songs of Israel - couple of nice folky ones on here. Gatefold with booklet
    Sharona Aron - folk. quiet pressing though. first track "At-At" is really nice, some nice ones on second side too
    Songs of Israel comp
    Orquesta Reve - cuban album on Realworld
    Barbados - tourist job gatefold with booklet etc
    Breton drums and bagpipes
    US Slovakian record
    Great cover, but only Hawaiian music, not Exotica (and they're not even Hawaiian, but Samoan)

    12s


    cumbia - La Cologiala
    discos fuentes EP on mango - 1 track cumbia, 1 more dubby, 1 dancehall, and 1 awful cover of La Bamba to round things off
    Silver Bullet - 20 Seconds to comply
    3 Norman Cook remixes of above

    Stuff Smith - US jazz violinist, backed by MPS guys

    VV gear + country


    Braziliana
    Killer Watts
    Ray McVay - double, mostly cheese, but great "Vehicle" on this and couple of other okay-ish covers

    Stereo '69 - "Birds" by Tony Hatch, also John Schroeder and Paraffin Jack Flash
    Hugo does Elton
    another Ray McVay double, also has "Vehicle" on, and a couple of okay-ish other covers
    Phil Brady - more UK country. Pretty good
    O Lucky Man - "Sell Sell Sell"
    German Bert Kaempfert LP, great sleeve. Early 60s with that great loud plucked bass/guitar sound. Those north of the border may enjoy this horror: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vgNCokrzTac
    Steve Race doing his jazzy thing on TV Themes, with Tubby Hayes etc
    Buck Owens - classic 60s Bakersfield sound

    In that case, can you please hold that Medi-Disc How To Lose Weight for me?
    I have it's brother releases on how to Relax, Stop Smoking and Sleep Better.
    When I have them all, I plan to play them in sequence without interruption and see what happens . . .

    Does anyone have Painless Childbirth or How To Stop Drinking?

    another one I just picked up this morning, didn't realise it was yet another version of "South Of The Border" or would have put it in the photo

    Dali Caldis - Plays Latin - pretty solid throughout, with one great fuzz track in particular ("Trouble Spot" I think?)

    I'd take that if no one else is after it. Let me know if you need extra £ for postage. Cheers

    of course. no extra, you can send up to 2kg 2nd class now. Which is plenty of room for me to include accordion records as punishment for late payers

    Is that 'congregation' album any good I keep seeing it in a local chazza but something stops me buying it, despite it looking interesting?

    Landed today thanks Bongo your'e a gent!

    Not had any chance to listen to anything today as it's been spent moving a summerhouse I dismantled last week from the Mother in Laws back to here. How we got it into the back of this guys Luton van I'll never know.

    Then I've spent all day working out how to turn my Raspeberry PI into a Plex client as Sky have decided to force an update to remove it from their NOWTV boxes after 3 years or so. Oh well I've had more than my moneys worth and the PI runs it so much faster and I can use my mobile as a remote. I dearly hope in this new age of streaming content that SKY die on their arse but I doubt it as they'll probably buy their way in as they are doing with ROKU.

    I'll get something else when the dust settles, the wife can still use her's upstairs for iplayer etc but I will never buy a sports pass from them again.

    Soz for the tangent, just venting.

    Shere's lot? Yeah I've got through them all except the house 12" that keeps looking at me at the front of my 'play' box all the time. I'm giving D.L Menard another chance there is something pure and proper about it I like. I should have known 'Cambridge city Jass' was dixieland though.

    I love that Don Ellis record and the Keith Jarrett especially the first record where he's playing sax and pipe organ in a church which is just stunning and the production on it is lush almost like being sat on a pew there watching him do his thing. Not to everyone's taste but great to chill to, sort of knew I was getting old when I began to enjoy listening to ECM records!

    Oh bloody hell I'm dense sometimes you sent me the Iron Butterfly repress as well among the others. I listened to 'The Skyweigians' at the tail end of last year and whilst I didn't really get what has made it an album of vulture interest there was something about it which has meant it's in the 'play again' box. I seem to remember it had a rough and ready lo-fi charm about it sort of 'garage c+w'. I might dig it out again this week and try again now you've reminded me.

    Just to say, Bongo, my package arrived today. Enough already with the Israeli freebies. I'll probably have a go at the weekend because my cat does not give me licence to listen to records during the week. I'm not kidding; he's very demanding. If I go into the record room to listen to records he'll just come and miaow at me until I can no longer take it.

    Thanks so much. Arrived with a barrel organ record that I've never seen featuring songs I want to hear. A real treat, cheers!

    Listening to that Sharona Aron LP at the weekend I found myself sitting there thinking how damned pleasant it was just her, and her guitar. I felt very mellow indeed.
