    Fontella Bass - Recovery
    Dobie Gray - See You at the Go-Go
    Mohawks - Skinhead Shuffle

    Various Pama/Unity/ Fab 45's

    And a few long players including

    The Foundations - From the Foundations
    Jr Walker - Shotgun

    The nice thing is the only other thing with a hole that is as minty is a Polo!

      There's only one track of theirs that I would say was essential and that's Music For Gong Gong from the first (s/t) LP on MCA. It also came out on a 7-inch.

      For 70s pop nostalgists like me Sunshine Day brings back happy memories (though I can't quite remember what those memories are... )

        i second the 'Music For Gong Gong' single recommendation - it's the b-side to 'Woyaya' - but the whole of the 1st album is nice. i think their two tracks on the Contour Afro Rock Festival are alright too, but let down by the bad sound on that record

          Hmm, this is a bit short on up-tempo fruggers, but it's a good example of Peter Knight's arrangements - it really does form the link between his work for Scott Walker and Morecambe and Wise!

          The vocal take on 'Love Song' (the instrumental version of which is on Johnny Harris' 'All To Bring You Morning' LP) is nice, but elsewhere, the young lady's voice is a bit Marlene Dietrich for my tastes.

            Actually did find a 'Moody' today, for £2.50 in the Selectadisc secondhand bins. Only a reissue, but still, nice to have it. Also Monade: Socialisme Ou Barbarie (Duophonic) for £1.50, and the Trunk UFO LP (albeit at full price)...

            And outside, in the charities, at 50p a go:

            Graham Walker Sound: Hair (saga)
            Geoff Love: Superhero Themes (MFP)
            Geoff Love: Star wars & Other Space Themes (MFP)
            Henry Mancini: Music Of Hawaii (RCA)
            Steppenwolf: Steppenwolf (ABC)
            Ike Isaacs: Lutes & Flutes (Rediffusion)
