  • Weekend finds

    Somehow managed to get out after a monstrous night on the old (Can we have a stolichnya botta icon please...)

    Got :-

    Klute OST - Came in the post. Cost me an absolute arm and a leg but its worth it.

    Tom Jones Story - Alan Caddy - Typical tj covers! Not the best.

    Vaciones en Mallorca - Bizarre tourist board thing of Mallorca! Some really cool freakbeaty esque stuff on here!

    Ibizia y Mallorca '77 - More spanish antics here. Oh dear. They've ditched the chic and replaced it with eurovision disco! Hilarious and I mean hilarious cover of 'Daddy Cool'....I'll play this to the disco collectors at the next brillo.

    Birds 'n Brass are back - COME ON! So chuffed to find this.

    Sun Seeker - Really not the best of libraries. Plugs a gap tho.

    Bosworth 138 - Lots of shuffly waltz and jazz with some. Sounds a lot like Terry and June! (Remember that&#33.

    Off we go - Never seen these show business libraries before. Its linked to Berry in the uk. Anyway 'That Funky Feeling' is fairly cheesy big band funk. Not bad. Worth the quid I paid for it!

    Music to varnish owls by - Top drawer stuff on this programme lib. 'Fillet of soul' is great. Might be a double.

    Young days of love - On blossom. I always pick these up because its such a rare label - they sometimes are a bit scatty so trade well to the japanese guys. Sadly this is a bit poor.

    there&#39;s a second volume of that Alan Caddy Tom Jones LP to look out for&#33;

    well i finally got a Roundtable &#39;Spinning Wheel&#39; (20 quid, unsold stock copy) from a dealer at the Camden fair. he has a large amount of unsold stock on President related labels (President, Jay Boy, Seville, Crystal, etc) so if anyone else needs a copy PM me for his details or go to the one next month. he has mainly 45s but he said he had a few of the Roundtable LP left (he also has the 45 from the LP) and quite a few interesting disco-ish 45s (e.g. Apatchi Band - Issmak, Berry Street Station - Chocolate Sugar, Latimore - Let&#39;s Straighten It Out, Nefertiti - Wisdom...)

        Is that the Blossom library label that&#39;s another offshoot of Berry Music?

        I&#39;m assuming Sun Seeker is the Peer International one by David Johnson - not funky, but there&#39;s a nice folky track where the guitar goes a bit fuzzy......quite hypnotic, probably best enjoyed while staring at a lava lamp. Nice cover too.


        Anyway, I got:

        The Lush Sounds Of The London Moods Orchestra (see other thread)

        Top TV Themes - Tony Osbourne (Contour) - sadly not the one with &#39;Sale Of The Century&#39; on it (if anyone&#39;s got one of these, I&#39;m interested&#33, good slightly funky &#39;Coronation Street&#39;, though&#33;

        The Piccadilly Pops Orchestra Plays Simon and Garfunkel (Concord) - nice&#33; Produced by Roy Berry, of Conroy library fame.

        And a few others I can&#39;t remember at the moment....

          Found all sorts of bits and bobs this weekend but the weirdest find was a sealed copy of &quot;Blowfly&#39;s Party&quot; in a furniture shop in Perth - WTF was it doing there?

          Also grinning today because I liberated a copy of &quot;Mantle-Piece&quot; by the Battered Ornaments from Edinburghs grumpiest record dealer for about a third of it&#39;s WWW price - hurrah&#33;
          "..hole...road...middle thereof"

            Well done lee&#33; Battered Ornaments is so tasty.

            Indeed Lord T that Blossom library is an offshoot of Berry. Sunseeker is on Peer. Your right great great cover (as with all peers&#33. Whats the name of the fuzzy track? My ears couldnt take skipping through it again.
