        not just today, but in the last seven days - a pretty good charity haul by my standards:

        some mint uk folk:

        Martin Cathy and Dave Swarbrick 'Two Came By' (Fontana 1968)
        The Watersons 'The Watersons' (Topic 1966)
        The Watersons 'A Yorkshire Garland' (Topic 1966)
        The Young Tradition 1st album (Transatlantic 1966)
        David and Marianne Dalmour 'introducing...' (two copies, mono and stereo, Coumbia 1966)

        an amazing mint jazz album:

        John Mayer/Joe Harriott 'Indo-Jazz Fusions' (Columbia 1967)
        not only is it mint, but it's the only one I didn't have of the Harriott/Mayer albums - nice.

        some dance twelves (reach for the laser&#33:
        Leviticus 'Burial remix'
        Rum and Black 'Fuck the legal stations'
        Zero Zero 'The Sanity Clause'
        N-Joi 'Anthem'
        Wink 'Higher State of Consciousness'
        and a nice e.p. in an Orb vein on a white label (IRE 2031 ring any bells?)

        and some more stuff, almost all in top condition:

        Nancy Wilson 'Yesterday's Love Songs'
        Julie London 'Our Fair Lady'
        Mothers of Invention 'Freak Out' UK copy
        Willaim De Vaughan 'Figures Can't Calculate' (1980 LP with the remake of 'Just be thankful for what you've got...'
        Rudolf Pache 'Hammond in the background' (with cheesey version of Hawaii 5-0 etc..)
        Original Tropicana Steel Band 'Tropicana' ('Funky Abbey Road'
        Various 'Galloping Home'
        Adge Cutler and the Wurzels 'Carry on Cutler' (important cultural artefact here in Brizzle - and it's got 'Ferry to Glastonbury' on it.)
        David Fanshawe 'African Sanctus' (classic used in 'If' - spare copy)
        David Fanshawe 'Arabian Fantasy'
        Harold Budd/Brian Eno 'The Pearl' very chilled.
        Mahavishnu Orchestra 'Inner Worlds' (includes 'Planetary Citizen' classic breakbeatraer.
        101 Strings play Simon and Garfunkel. Badly.
        Various 'Sun Blues' (part of the 'Sun roots of rock' series, absolute blinders from people like Handy Jackson and Hot Shot Love.)

        and some oddballs:

        Frankie Randall 'The Mods and The Pops' U.S. Lounge singer on RCA who covers 'I can see for miles' and 'Flowers in the rain' in the club style.

        Belle Gonzalez with Sextet 'Poets Set in jazz'
        Belle Gonzalez 'Contemorary Poets Set in jazz'
        two 7 inch EPs on Jupiter Records from 1965 and 1966, doing pretty much what they say on the tin...any ideas?

        and a 33rpm 12" acetate (looks virtually unplayed) of someone's retirement party at a place called Ely House - haven't listened to this one yet...but looks intriguing!

          Found a long time want today.....

          'Oh When The Saints...' by Milton Rhodes & The Archers - a funky Southampton F.C. 45 (with break).

          Taken me 7 years to find that one, and I live in Southampton

          Fingers crossed for good weather in the morning (pissing it down here right now) and a good Sunday haul.

            Thanks, John! Big-up to yourself on finding the 'Indo-Jazz Fusions' LP!

            'Kaleidoscope of Rainbows' is certainly a beautiful record. I can never get enough of those powerful rock rhythms with the jazz soloing out in front - brilliant! It's all so well put together.

            The Cerrone 'Love in C Minor' Disco-funk LP is also great. I love Disco when it's done properly, and this is a prime example. Top line-up of UK session musicians, too!

              This morning haul...not amazing (I think last nights heavy rain put alot of sellers off turning out), but for this mornings fiver....

              The John Gregory Orchestra - The Detectives (Philips LP)
              Bing & The Birds - Beat Party To The Classics (Saga LP)
              Amazonas - Play Santana (SGA LP)
              Lightning Red - Party Sound With Brass & Strings (SGA LP)
              Paddy Kingsland - Supercharged (Studio 2 Stereo LP)

              .... so no sign of any copies of 'Supercharged' in god knows how many years, and then 2 in 3 weeks. Picked up a few 45s too (Timmy Thomas, Georgie Fame, The Goodies) as freebies with the Lps.

              Saw a load of libraries this morning on one stall, and started salivating only to find they were Chappell AV Series LPs. Oh well.

                  Same deal with that Northern Dance Orchestra record. Suddenly they appear.

                    Bit windy and wet up here in t'north this morning, so the head count at the booter was pretty low... Did come back with...

                    Grandmaster Flash & Furious Five "Scorpio" 12"
                    Sight And Sound "Movie Themes Of Today" (EX/EX trade)
                    Isley Brothers "Tamla Motown Presents" (MFP) "My Love Is Your Love"

                    Picked up a few 45's whilst in Manchester ( thanks Vinylism for a top night of party tunes! ), cream of the crop were...

                    The Sisters & Brothers "The Jed Clampett (Parts 1&2)"
                    The Sandpebbles "If You Didn't Hear Me The First Time"

                    Nice! /iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/plan.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':hannibal:'>
                    If you're looking for a pristine copy then this isn't the one for you. The vinyl looks like someone has polished their brickwork with it and the label has been ruined by some fool with a pen.

                        The Voice

                        Personnel incl:
                        MILLER ANDERSON


                        45:
                        1 The Train To Disaster/Truth (Mercury MF 905) 1967


                        This London-based group evolved out of Karl Stuart and The Profiles and Profile. Their 45 is now an ultra-rarity, much sought-after by connoisseurs of psychedelia. On the Chocolate Soup (CD)/Chocolate Soup For Diabetics, Vol. 1 (LP) compilations the 'A' side, a Hammill-Anderson composition, begins with a dramatic "I am the god of hell fire" intro straight out of Arthur Brown's Fire and this sets the temperature for three minutes of guitar-driven mayhem; this intro seems to have been an invention of the compiler however, and is missing from the original single! Miller Anderson, who was almost certainly in the band, was later in Savoy Brown and the Keef Hartley Band. You'll also find The Train To Disaster on Psychdelic Voyage, Vol. 2 (LP), Psychedelic Voyage (CD) and Beat It (3-CD). It's flip side, The Truth, has also resurfaced on Magic Spectacles (CD), but is nowhere near as good.

                          John, what do you think of this 45 then?
                          I used to have quite a good freakbeat/r&#39;n&#39;b collection - all the Primitives/all the Wimple Winch/all the Poets/all the Fleur de Lys/Score/all the Game/Frame/Thane Russell/all the Pretties and EPs/all the Yardbirds and EPs/Creation/Action/Dantalian&#39;s Chariot/Vamp/Bamboo Shoot/Fox/all the Eyes/Actress/Flies/
                          Fire/Factory and a bunch of others...(which now I wish I hadn&#39;t sold about fifteen years ago). This was always a 45 I was looking for since the Chocolate Soup LP first came out, but I&#39;ve still never seen a copy. Nice record. Where was the auction?

                            Oh mighty Lord&#33;
                            Dear John, what the hell made you sell those 45s ??
                            Whaddya mean by `quite a good freakbeat/r´n´b collection?
                            These bands are the cream of the crop (among others).
                            I´m a vivid collector of (esp. UK) freakbeat and it´s hard to understand that you decided to part with these sounds.
                            I´d really be interested in your excuse please&#33; (Or did you have multiple copies??)

                            Cheers

                              Good find. I dont actually have this but I&#39;ve seen it for £20 before and seen Harmony of The Spheres for a similar price. Is it worth payin this much for it? And what bout Harmony of The Spheres anyone?
