  • Bank holiday bonanza!

    so I hit up four yes FOUR booters this morning. No rare mad stuff just solid 50p pickings.

    Alan Moorehouse - hits on parade in a new swinging military style (havent listened to it - I bet its sh*t!)

    Jesus Christ Superstar (windmill) - again I havent listened to it so I cant say if its covers or what!

    harry stoneham - Hammond hits the highway (why I dont know. Im a sucker for these.)

    harry stoneham - Hammond hits the continent (well you gotta!!)

    harry stoneham - Solid gold hammond (completes the collection! haha!)

    The Fantastic Peddlers (Fontana) - Yeah! now we are talking. Not a suite london by any stretch but still worth having.

    Jack parnell - brazilia (HEAT!! well not really. Bought to trade)

    Golden hits (CBS). This is well odd! Its in a release produced for the scout association - dib dib dib and all that. has peddlers - who can I turn - marmalade - obladioblada. It was free so I cant complain! I gave a wink to the old gal on the stall as I had no money left. A 30 second flirt and a free record! COME ON :biggrin:

    and the killer find of the day....

    Dance conspiracy - Dub war. (XL)

    This has gotta be 30-40 today. Rinsing dark hardcore madness. I think its a double so its for trade.

    Not a bad morning - roll on next week! <- Changed URL

        i found a mysterious unmarked sealed brown envelope in a sleeve on saturday, and put it inside a record i was buying, but then ended up putting that one back... so the mysterious envelope remains... (Help the Aged, Chelmsford High St... some e-z Polydor sampler)...knowing my luck was probably 500 quid or something!

        also was wondering about the Captain Noah one - had a cursory listen and besides bringing back bad memories of the school choir didn't hear anything that good on it besides 'Angel of Death'

        [Hansi's 'Immigrant Song' - this i must hear!]

          <span =''>
          terrible lp apart from a banging uptempo 'b-boy break' at the start of 'Moses' Magic Box'

            The Windmill 'Jesus Christ Superstar' is the Alan Caddy version that was on Avenue, and loads of other labels too.
            It's probably my favourite version, actually, but I've not heard the Ingman or Percy Faith yet.

                      With one hour to kill between trains in the sleepy little town of Lewes (see, I'm not precious about keeping my finds secret), I parked the Missus in a pub and dived into the charidee next door, not hoping for much. Emerged ten minutes later weighed down with a bag full of VG prog and rock classics (mainly for resale, but nice nonetheless: lots of gatefolds, booklets etc) a couple of sound effects and a Hare Krisna LP from about 72. Decided to risk sticking my nose into the shop next door, which looked like a CD emporium, and was rewarded with a bag full of gap-fillers like James Taylor, Leonard Cohen, Free, Mama Cass, Scott Walker, etc all at silly prices. (Very nice staff too.) Weekend was brought to a top conclusion when the friends I was visiting asked if I'd like to 'take off their hands' all the records they had laying around, a fair few of which were from when the girl lived in Brasil. I ask you.
                      Wound up with 37 quality pieces having spent £35.
                      AND a Miss Piggy 45 for my lovely girlfriend, as a reward for waiting in the pub!

                        I drove through lewes on monday to get to all the booters (I was coming from brighton its about 20 mins drive from my folks house). They were all in the A22 belt (3 booters within 2 miles!!)

                        I bet you could find some mental stuff if you took a week off work and hit up the east sussex little villages - ripe, alfriston, polegate, lower dicker etc etc... tempting!

                          The sum total of my weekend's charities and booting...

                          SGA (with Jungle Fever)
                          Jack Parnell - Braziliana LP
                          Isotope LP (with Retracing My steps)
                          Eric B And Rakim - I Know You Got Soul 45
                          (all spares)

                          Gary Numan - Cars 45
                          Some duff Alan Caddy LP and two more I can't even remember...

                          So no better than normal for my neck of the woods. The bootsale was ridiculous - you couldn't flick through anything without someone prying over your shoulder. Grrr...

                          Question - should I have picked up that Alan Stivell LP I left???

                          (Another question - am I the only one who needs to buy at least two records in my first purchase since carrying a single record around for the rest of the day is more trouble than it's worth?).
                          You freeking scientologists are all the same, quible, dribble and then demand ice creams. Ohhhhhhhhhhh.

                            I too like a bit of ballast in the bag whilst going arounf the booter - saves it flapping about!

                            James Last - Copacabana (“Chili Con Carne“ is brazialia-tastic)

                            Moe Koffman - Rock Bach to Me (Bach done in the rock stylee - quite tasty)
                            Magic Disco Macine - Disc-O-Tech (the lp with “Scratchin'“! Very good throughout)

                            Various Artists - Summit Meeting (nice break on a Dr John track and a stonking version of “Cissy Strut“ by Todd Rundgren(!!))

                            Wild Angels OST (sort of psyche / garage 60s gear)
                            Eric Burdon &amp; the Animals - Winds of Change (couple of really nice beats on here and bonus sitar!)
                            Lincoln Mayorga - The Missing Linc

                            Augusto Alguero - Eloise (very easy but good versh of “Hey Jude“)
                            Disco Spectacular - Music Inspired by the Film “Hair“ (the disco version - actually pretty good and some nice open super disco breaks!)

                            Various Artists - Hymns of Gold (Lynn Anderson - “Put Your Hand in the Hand“ - Break!)

                              And in Nottingham, a grand total of four booters and not a single record worth picking up! Best one was in Beeston, in a pub car park, where only one stall was being packed up half an hour after the start time by a bloke with clown hair in what felt like a freezing hurricane. Closest was a copy of Chris Waxman's 'Organized' that turned out to be knackered when removed forom its sleeve, &amp; another knackered LP, an OSt of a film called The Oscar by Percy Faith (one out near Gotham, one at Colwick Racecourse - neither purchased). Maybe next weekend, then...
