  • The usual weekend digs thread

    Well, another pleasant morning down the cattle market, and another heap of stuff I'm spending my afternoon listening to. Bit thin on LPs, but a nice clutch of 45s picked up along the way...

    LPs:

    Eddie Russ: Take a Look at Yourself  (Monument) [thought this was a double, turns out there's a second VG+ sleeveless copy in there - anyone fancies it, give me a shout]
    Fuse One: Fuse One (CTI)
    BBC Sound Effects Vol.13: Death & Horror (BBC) [ah, the sounds of gravedigging, strangulation and decapitation over lunch...]

    12inch

    James Last Band: Night Drive/The Seduction (Love Theme) (Polydor) [The Seduction sucks logs, but Night Drive isn't bad: JL goes all Giorgio Moroder/groovy CTI on us]
    B.Baker Chocolate Co: Higher & Higher/The High & Mighty (TK Disco)

    45s:

    Chi-Lites: (For Gods Sake) Give More Power to The People/Troubles A Comin' (MCA)
    Human Beinz: Nobody But Me/Sueno (Capitol)
    Keith West/Mark Wirtz Orch: Excerpt From A Teenage Opera/Theme (Parlophone)
    Elmer Bernstein: Staccato's Theme/The Jazz At Waldos (Capitol)
    Shirley & Company: Shame Shame Shame/Shame Shame Shame (instro) (Vibration)
    Piero Umiliani: Mah Na Mah Na/You Tried To Warn Me (EMI)
    Diane Renay: Growin Up Too Fast/Waitin For Joey (20th Century)
    The Dramatics: Trying To Get Over Losing You/How Do You Feel (ABC)
    Billy Preston: Get Back/Space Race (A&M)
    Average White Band: Pick Up The Pieces/You Got It (Atlantic)
    Simtec Simmons: Classified Crazy Man/Some Other Time (Contempo)
    Santana: She's Not There/Zulu (CBS)
    First Choice: Armed & Extremely Dangerous/Gonna Keep On Lovin Him (Bell)
    Swingle Singers: Going Baroque No.1 (Philips EP)
    The Peppers: Pinch Of Salt/Pepper Box (Spark)
    Mystery Incorporated: Where Are You Scooby Doo/Mystery Incorporated (MFP) [hooray! Been looking for this for ages...]

    Most intriguing find of the day is:

    Tim Tam & The Turn Ons: Wait a Minute/Opelia (Palmer)

    Anyone know anything about this? A-side is credited to Wiesand-DeAngelo, and is a kind of fast doo-wop number but with super-heavy drums, flip is credited to MJ Patlow and is a funky-Ventures/psych style instro. Palmer label states Detroit, Michigan as origin, but there are no dates anywhere on it. Very nice, though...

    I've actually bought some records for the first time in ages - and they're good 'uns too!

    Listen Move And Dance nos 1-3 (HMV) - a schools 'music and movement' thing, with some electronic wibbliness from Radiophonic pioneer Daphne Oram.

    What A Wonderful World - Ray Davies and the BDB (Fontana) - 'Hurdy Gurdy Man', as discussed on these very pages a while back. I think I've got another issue of this with a different sleeve.

    'I Feel Good - I Feel Funky' - Harry Stoneham (One Up)  - YES!

    'South Of The Border' - Chico Lopez and Brazilia 70 (Deacion) Trade

    'Scottish Magic' - the Hickory (flexi) - DOUBLE YES!!

    'Superspike' - Bill Oddie (Bradleys 7&quot - more Goodies-type funk, with guest vocal from John Cleese plus an instumental b-side!

    And probably some more I've forgotten about.

    Many thanks to Dr Kraken and Benicio Del Toffo for recent freebies too.

    The normal vinyl drought will resume shortly.

        Ditto on the record drought.However some nice pieces have turned up this week

        The Way To Become A Sensuous Woman by J  -  a bit porny this one but might make some interesting interludes on  a mix cd as will;

        Stereo Healthcheck - narrated by Jack Dimanio and a bird who says  ' Come over here' enticingly on a section on stereo seperation.

        Proper records were

        Gentle Giant - Yusef Lateef
        Nuggets - Luke Vibert featuring 'Sundown' - thanks for the tip Sermad
        Lark - Linda Lewis
        Ruby Don't Take Your Love To Town - First Edition
        Did You Ever - Lee and Nancy

        The last 3 cost zip due to the shop owner not having change of a fiver.  
        Back to Neuuuuuuuuuu!

            I found a spare of that one today too but it's the Windmill copy.

            I've been off work this week and found a shitload of stuff but my faves were:

            Keith Mansfield - All You Need Is...
            Maynard Ferguson - Freaky
            Roy Ayers - Daddy Bug
            Otis Skillings - Life
            Jack Jones - A Time for Us (no, seriously!&#33

            Best thing I had today was a mix cdr from Formigo which is absolutely amazing and must have taken ages to do! Pester the lad for a copy right now.

              This is from his 1980s LP "Seduction" which boasts quite an impressive line up of US jazz fusion types... I initially thought it was shite, but parts of it (e.g. "Vibration&quot are growing on me. Bongolia still thinks it's shite and has a copy for trade.
              It ain't shakey

                        Well done Mark on finding Moody - quite right, an elusive piece and worth the wait to find it for a pound.

                        My own personal, tireless "find a copy of Moody" search enters it's 10th year in 2004, I can't imagine the hundreds of thousands of records I've looked through in the last decade and never stumbled upon a copy... the search continues...

                        Saying that, Moody ain't the only rockin' horse shit LP out there that gets all us Vultures salivating. And when you check out some of the charts we've all put up on the site over the past twelve months - it's fair to say that we've all had a fair share of diggin' success this year !



                        Carry On Diggin' !
                        If you're looking for a pristine copy then this isn't the one for you. The vinyl looks like someone has polished their brickwork with it and the label has been ruined by some fool with a pen.

                            Hey, Mark knows I'm just kidding.    I mean, after his posts this year it was only a matter of time (and sooner rather than later).  

                            I went Southampton this weekend and - aside from a blinding night courtesy of Cheebs, Reverend Cleatus And The Soul Saviours and Staropramen - I came back with (amongst others)...

                            Atlanta Rhythm Section LP with 'Spooky'
                            Reg Tilsley TV Themes LP
                            Fleetwood Mac 'Tusk' LP (SHADOWBREAKS!!! - spare)
                            Paul McCartney LP with 'Momma Miss America' (minting up...)
                            Funkadelic 'One Nation Under A Groove' LP
                            RayMcVay 'Road Show' (?) LP (with a very nice '2001', as I think was mentioned a little while back)
                            Plimsoll Sandwich (the title escapes me... Hayd???)

                            And, waiting at the post office...

                            Shirley Ellis 'The Clapping Song' 45
                            Massive Attack 'Unfinished Sympathy' 45
                            Bobby Byrd 'I Need Help (I Can't Do It Alone' 45 (was there more than one recording of this?)

                            You freeking scientologists are all the same, quible, dribble and then demand ice creams. Ohhhhhhhhhhh.

                              Is this the one with the big party cover with all the balloons? Don't know much about it (Fugain seems to have been a pretty ropey MOR star in Europe judging by other stuff I've seen & heard) but if it's the one I'm thinking of that 'big bazar' LP has some great tracks on it...mostly like a French New Generation or something, but then suddenly throwing in a few quite odd, even pop-psych-y things...Alapage had some other stuff of his with sound samples, but I don't remember being struck by any of it when I had a listen...
