    I only found this:
    "Rare Earth in concert"
    Never actually liked their stuff, but this one is packed with jazz-funk jamming. Awesome!

      The last few days have been fairly productive. After foolishly wearing new skate trainers to dig my way through towns I'm not familiar with and finishing the day with blisters and a gob on, I grabbed:

      LPs:
      Johnny Harris 'All To Bring You Morning'
      Lani Hall 'Sundown Lady' (Love Song)
      John Dankworth 'Facade'
      Hurricane Smith 'Don't Let It Die' (Break)
      Fausto Papetti 'Best of...' ('Dock of the Bay' - huge break)
      Bugs Bunny 'Comes To London'
      Readers Digest 'TV Music Spectacular' (own up, who is it keeps leaving these behind with just LP 4 - 'Thrillers' missing, you fuckers?!! I found 3 boxes of this, and just one complete&#33
      James Gang 'Best of...'
      Jamey Aebersold 'Nothin But The Blues' ('Mr Super Hip&#39
      Jamey Aebersold 'Time To Play Music (Jazz & Rock)' (Ace tune called 'Snap Crackle & Pop)
      Jamey Aebersold 'Improvisations in G'

      But the weekend was made by a Salvation Army charity shop having a lovely condition, boxed Grandstand 'Scramble' game for £3. The batteries went in and it was straight into action. Sadly, 21 years on and I'm still shite at it.

          Who needs a Moody if you can that for 25p!  If you can get four 'Soul Cures' for the price of Mark's 'Gentle Rain'...

          I only picked up a spare She Rockers '...From London' and the Diana Ross with the Supremes and the Temptations LP with 'Funky Broadway'.

            I've still not heard 'Gentle Rain' - but I'd be suprised if it is a better listening LP than 'Soul Cure'.....

              Actually one piece of super goodness did arrive in the post at the weekend. It wasn't 25p though.

                'Soul Cure' is not just a great start-to-finish LP in its own right, it's one I used to have (out of my mum's collection) & played to death as a nipper because I loved the horns etc. For years I had the vague memory of the white cover & bird in bikini & wondered what it was, but no trace of the copy back home & my mum replied to requests for 'the LP with the black woman in a bikini & red writing on it' with funny looks. Then saw it Sermad's chart the other month & thought 'that's it! yippee!' before realising I was unlikely to see a copy, ever...

                So you can imagine my surprise on Saturday morning skimming through a 4 for a £1 pile of old Acker Bilk & Louis Armstrong to see the very thing...and I know now why tracks like 'Watermelon Man' always felt so damn familiar when I first heard them back in the early 90s...and, yes, it still does the business. Superb LP. Between that and the Motown Ric-Tic comp it's been a pretty darn soulful weekend at our house (well, if filling the cracks and sanding down the bedroom plasterwork can be soulful in any way at all...).

                By the way, Matt, I've got a spare cd-r of 'Moody' kicking about somewhere if you want it...drop me an email with your address & I'll put it in the post.

                    Hey matt.

                    I can give you a cdr of moody when we meet.

                    If anyone has the soul cure 45 with 'oh calcutta' I would really really really like to trade for it.

                    OOOOOF. Blighty. Ive been after shogun assassin ever since nick played me it. I never realised it had a vinyl pressing! Ive got all the original 'lone wolf and cub' films on dvd. They were a tenner each in forbidden planet. All of them utter genius. Makes kill bill look like play school!

                        That&#39;s where I first heard it, Nick. I&#39;m a latecomer to this film but I&#39;ve been searching for the mad kung fu film that the Gza used on Liquid Swords since the album came out. The film blew me away. It&#39;s amazing. I haven&#39;t seen the original Lone Wolf and Cub films yet but I&#39;m planning to.

                        The soundtrack&#39;s quality. I&#39;ve been collecting a a lot of early eighties electronic stuff recently so this was a nice one to find. Plus you get the whole spoken word intro of the film as the first track. The place I got it from apparently has one sealed copy left so I&#39;ll PM you the details, sermad.

                          Thanks Blighty&#33;&#33;&#33;

                          Shame on me for not checking gemm&#33; The &#39;shogun assassin&#39; film is cut from the first two lone wolf films. I havent actually seen it but apparently they did a great job of re-cutting it and making it into a different film.

                            No worries. I got mine via www.musicstack.com because the record was a few dollars cheaper than on Gemm.

                              That would be great   - it would save Wayne the postage.

                              I&#39;ll obviously keep &#39;em peeled for a copy of &#39;Oh &#33; Calcutta &#33;&#39; - my copy is a Turkish pressing on Polydor, with &#39;Soul Searchin&#39; on the flip. What was the flip of the UK pressing of &#39;Soul Searchin&#39; Rich ?

                              The other bits to look out for by The Power Pack (assuming that you&#39;ve not got them), are the &#39;Juliet Simpkins / Hannibal Brooks&#39; 45 - the flip suggests that it is taken from the soundtrack of the movie of the same name, which is a Michel Legrand OST I think, but I&#39;ve not checked out whether it is a cover or whether PP were involved somehow - and the rather poor Tim Rice penned &#39;Opposite Lock&#39; which appears on the Polydor &#39;Power Pop 69&#39; box set.

                              Once again, I emplore you to remember not to confuse them with &#39;The Power Pack Orchestra&#39; who are 1. *Much* later &amp; 2. Shite.
