    Not an epic list this week, I can hear the audible sighs of relief around the country

    Found the following in charities:

    Love - Forever Changes - Practically faultless LP - Double

    Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon - couldn't resist this as it has all the original posters and inserts unused - double

    Egg - The Civil Service - Mad, left field, funky prog fusion madness - Double

    Wynton Marsalis - J Mood - Too straight ahead for my liking.

    Duke Jordan / Sadik Hakim - East and West of Jazz - Beautiful record but not particularly funky.

    Horst Jankowski - Jankowskinetik - One of his better Lp's on mps, unfortunately without a sleeve, unlikely I know but anyone have a spare?

    Sight and Sound - Movie Themes of Today - Fragments of Fear is unbelievible, not listened to this for yonks! - double

    Alan Moorhouse and Bond Street Brigade - I'd actually forgotten how good Funky Fever is, could be a lost Mandingo track.

    Izhar Cohen - Illusions - Coincidently I just bought a French copy of this on the bay. Israeli record (shout going out to the E-man) with a huge break on the intro into a decent track - double.

    Info needed on this one:

    Paul Horn - Jazz Suite on the Mass Texts - Fantastic religious jazz lp conducted by Lalo Schrifin. I love this sought of stuff! Anyone know anything about this release or can recommend any similar religious LP's by jazz players.

      i picked up a few nice items this weekend:

      bert kaempfert - &quot;now&#33;&quot; - charted by the man LDJB a few months ago, this one contains a break on &quot;PYHITH&quot; and even better, some good tunes - &quot;falling free&quot; sounds like johnny harris, uptempo pleaser &quot;proud mary&quot; with squealing fuzz guitar, &quot;living easy&quot; (probably my favourite on here, really nice easy funk).

      gunther kallmann choir - &quot;the very best of&quot; - a sighting of &quot;daydream&quot; but for once not on the ubiquitous polydor easy sampler&#33; also notable for a lovely crisp run through of stevie&#39;s &quot;my cherie amour&quot;.

      don costa - &quot;the don costa concept&quot; - great big band grooviness. chunky takes on &quot;love so fine&quot;, &quot;adios&quot;, &quot;tristesse&quot; and &quot;i&#39;m gonna make you love me&quot;.

      geoff love &amp; his orch. - &quot;play your top t.v. themes&quot; - already have a copy of this, but i&#39;d forgotten how bloody good these versions of &quot;strange report&quot; (as comped on one of the early &#39;easy&#39; collections and rightly so) and &quot;jason king&quot; are&#33; (double)

      the comedians - &quot;laugh with...&quot; - very unfunny, but useful as a snapshot of comedy in 1971, a bit of social history. frank carson battles it out with bernard manning to see who can tell the most mother-in-law jokes. teeth-wateringly awful.

      medicine head - &quot;slip &amp; slide&quot; (45) - nice late-psychy (1974) 45 from old favourites of john peel.

        I got myself out of the city centre yesterday and it finally paid off when a nice old dear said the magic words &quot;We&#39;ve just got a new box of records in, would you like a look? 50p each or 3 for a pound&quot; - like a rat up a drainpipe I tell you. Nothing terribly funky but a few rare bits:

        Bill Withers - Best of... (always suprises me how good this bloke is) double

        Anita Harris - Somebody&#39;s in my Orchard (strange one from Anita, nice version of &quot;Watermelon Man&quot; on it but she occasionaly sounds like the pub singer) - double

        Terry Reid - The Most of... (&quot;Superlungs&quot; and a couple of other psychers) - double

        Steely Dan - Gaucho (yes, I like Steely Dan, what of it??)

        PJ Proby - Phenomenon (punk assed blue eyed soul - some nice uptempo stompers)

        Edgar Broughton Band - Sing Brother Sing (&quot;No Vibrations but Wait&#33;&quot; is the one but some other weirdness too)

        Tony Christie comp (ahem...erm &quot;Walk Like a Panther&quot

        British Motown Chartbusters (nice clean copy)

        Phil Spectors Xmas Album (better late than never)

        Summer Chartbusters (mainly &#39;cos I&#39;d never seen it before and it has &quot;Roadrunner&quot; and &quot;Dizzy&quot; on it)

        Charles Wuorinen - Time&#39; Enconium (weirdo music concrete on synths - destined for the &#39;bay / trade)

        Howard Riley Trio - Angle (weirdo late 60&#39;s jazz - very free - destined for the bay / trade)

        John Stevens Spontaneous Music Ensemble ( see above&#33

        Brian Jones presents the Pipes of Pan at Joujouka (world music tosh to these ears but apparantly quite rare so off the bay it goes&#33

        The Strawbs - Bursting at the Seams (where the hell is the Strawbs break? Pretty sure it&#39;s not on this one either)

        The Eagles - The Long Run (&quot;Those Shoes&quot; as used by the Beastie Boys)

        Bridget St John - Songs for the Gentle Man (rare peice on Dandelion - not my cuppa so head baywards / trade too)

        Steel Pulse - True Democracy (bit late but still enjoyable)

        Francoise Hardy - In English (I love the version of &quot;Catch a Falling Star&quot; on here) - double

        Natural Acoustic Band - Learning to Live (more rare folk / prog headed to the bay / trade)

        Amazing Blondel - Fantasia Lindum (see above)

        Roy Harper - Flat Baroque and Beserk (2 copies - both doubles - this lp is all acoustic apart from the last track &quot;Hells Angels&quot; which is a hammond and fuzz banger) - doubles

        Grateful Dead - Live / Dead (urrgh - ever rated this band - bay / trade - strangely though there were some press shots of the Third Ear Band in the sleeve - maybe most of this lot was from one of the members collection?)

        Judee Sill - S/T (more folk / prog gentleness - bay / trade)

        Shangri-Las - Golden Hits (Can&#39;t beat a bit of the Shangri-Las every so often)

        Kai Warner - Salsoul Explosion (never seen this before and it&#39;s pretty good - discoey funky stuff - fair few breaks on it too)

        and then I went to the most pitiful car boot this morning - I was there for ten minutes (literally) and looked at both of the boxes of records&#33; One of them contained a pile of EMI / Pye promo 45s (with the good ones missing). I came home with these:

        The Sonic All-Stars - The Sounds of Star Wars (this is the version Flash uses when he plays live - primarily the electro break in the main theme)

        45s

        Kevin Leray - I Would Do It All Again (I was seduced by the Alan Tew credit - pish - avoid)

        Alan Moorhouse - When the Boat Comes In (I knew this would be rubbish but couldn&#39;t resist)

        Mike Morton Congregation - Falling in Love Again (nice beat but rubbish tune)

        Blue Mink - Get Up (this is more like it&#33; This is actually better known to me as &quot;7,6,5,4,3,2,1 Blow Your Whistle&quot; - very funky)

        So there you have it - sorry for rambling on but I&#39;m very bored due to the booter being so crap and the family pissing off out without me &#39;cos tey thought I&#39;d be out ages etc.......

        If any one is interested in any of the doubles etc above give me a shout.

          hmm, i might as well join in with what I obtained by fair means and foul this week, including postal arrivals...

          Tunji Oyelana and the Benders - Double Face (EMI Nigeria)
          killer LP, inc. the track &#39;Ifa&#39; which was on the Nigeria 70 comp

          Wild Fire - Check It (Charlies)
          very odd trinidadian affair on a New York label, one killer track, a sort of minor-key-dismal-death-disco/funk thing. Unique, and really heavy.

          Dorothy Morrison - Brand New Day (elektra)

          Johnny Johnson and his Bandwagon - Soul Sahara (Bell) James Ellerbeck put me onto this, jolly nice it is too, if a little directionless.

          Mark Holder and the Positives (atlantic) - Whatevers fair

          The Rebels - Rhodesia (black Wax)
          wicked, wicked version of drum song. 2nd copy, minting up, so if anybody wants one with a few rather nasty clicks at the start...

          Jacques dutronc - J&#39;aime les filles (Vogue) inc. Tout lu, tout vu, tout bu...

          Serge Gainsbourg - no. 4 (phillips) just the reissue, as I don&#39;t have a spare £400 or whatever it costs... Why did this man make &#39;L&#39;Anthracite&#39; in 1959? Totally bananas.

          there we are then. quite a good week really, if rather costly.

              It&#39;s ace, Sermad and I think I&#39;ve got a double of it (though on a different label).

                I actually don&#39;t know what that sounds like. It turns up fairly regularly I think, but i have to say I&#39;ve never actually heard it...

                  It&#39;s a sort of heavy drum funk record, but it was played in early 70s NY discos (which is how I know about it). Older hands in US describe it as a disco record, but it doesn&#39;t actually sound like one.

                      it&#39;s pretty nice in a repetitive kind of way. a bit of a stoner funk record really - it&#39;s just a looped groove, but a good one, and very well produced.
