          As promised in an earlier thread, I can now list what I found at the weekend. I haven't had time til now but I'm off work with a stinker of a cold as of this afternoon.

          Not listened to many of these yet, just too busy, but my hopes are high.

          All LPs (as per usual&#33

          Charity Shops:

          Ronnie Aldrich - Tomorrow's Yesterdays
          Les Aiglons - Pas Mal Paler Michou (looks like a funk/soul band from the Antilles, issued on Sonodisc)
          Joe E Covington - Fat Fandango (well, he's a drummer)
          Junie (Morrison) - Suzie Super Groupie (the Funkadelic connection)
          Roger Coulam - Hammond Stereo Sounds...
          Jackie Trent & Tony Hatch - Opposite Your Smile
          ?? - The Amazing Music of the Electronic Arp Synthesizer

          Creation - S/T
          Southwind - S/T (sealed)

          The Innocence - S/T (I'll buy anything on Kama Sutra&#33
          Lani Hall - Sundown Lady
          Otger Dice - Garden of Pleasure (it's Dutch and he thanks members of Focus, it's promising)
          Bill Conti - An Unmarried Woman (OST)
          John O'Hara & The Famous O'Hara's Playboys - A Look Through The 70s (club singer has a bash at Funky Nassau)
          Madelaine - Who Is She (only ever had 2 copies of this, and both from Sheffield)
          Blue Mink - Only When I Laugh
          Various - Great Warner Brothers Love Themes (incs Klute, Bullitt, Enter The Dragon etc)
          The Congregation - S/T (Alan Parker, Brian Keith and further KPM connections)

          Nottingham shops:

          Tubby Hayes - After Lights Out... Re-issue (well, an original went on eBay for about $1700 this week. Probably crap though)
          Sammy Nestico - Dark Orchid (break on Shoreline Drive)
          Cedar Walton, George Coleman, Sam Jones, Billy Higgins - Eastern Rebellion (looks like a Strata East LP, but is actually on Timeless out of Holland)

          Hope the rest of the year persists in this vein.

            Ben, you need to polish your bandwagon a bit more, that 23 Skidoo Lp is called 7 Songs and it's on a label called Fetish, I believe
