  • Weekend digs

    Rainy weekend skipped (just about) the Saturday morning, meaning I managed to hit the cattle market & a few charities for the following:

    Gabrieli Brass: The Canterbury Pilgrims (Polydor) [see other threadÂ…]
    Young Marble Giants: Colossal Youth (Rough Trade)
    Sami Swoi: The Locust – Polish Jazz vol.67 (Muza)
    Julee Cruise: Floating Into The Night (Warner)
    Mono: Formica Blues (Echo)
    World Of Twist: The Storm/She’s A Rainbow 12” (Circa)
    The Dylans: Godlike 12” (Situation Two)

    Most frustrating of all was a box full of vintage Motown, CBS, Warner etc stuff, all of it trashed beyond hope. From the mess picked up playable (VG+) copies of

    Marvin Gaye: LetÂ’s Get It On (Motown)
    Playschool (BBC – ‘amazing animal band’ break & radiophonic ‘splodges’)
    Jackson Five: Greatest Hits (Motown)

    Also, over-optimistically punted on a copy of The Chambers Brothers’ ‘New Life – New Day’ that does manage to play, just about, but only as long as I want to pretend I’m listening to it in a corrugated iron shed during a thunderstorm.

    But the sleeveless copy of The Everly Brothers’ ‘Beat & Soul’ LP (with its great takes on ‘Hi-Heel Sneakers’, ‘Walking The Dog’, ‘Money’ etc) the bloke chucked in free pretty much made up for that one…

    Despite the crappy weather, had a reasonable return on the weekends activities. Mind you, virtually everything I found was doubles, maybe the law of dimishing returns ?

    Duke Grant - Hammond Organ Dance Party (Stereo Galaxy LP) The blue covered one with the funky 'Guantanamera'.

    Button Down Brass - This Guy's In Love (Fontana) 'Hurdy Gurdy Man'.... the most commong BDB LP I see these days.

    Aphrodite's Child - Rain & Tears (Philips) Best of Demis, Vangelis and chums.

    Big Jim H - Hammond Organ Dance Party (SGA) First copy for a while.

    Big Jim H - Dance Party Hammond Hits (SGA) Ditto.

    Cliff Richard - The Best of Cliff Vol.2 (EMI) 'Jesus' break.

    The Power & The Glory - The Big Rock Gospel LP (Fanfare) 'Jesus', 'PYHITH', with Maddy Bell on vocals. Allegedly.

    Elvis - Almost In Love (RCA Camden) My fave Elvis set, 'Little Less Conversation', 'Rubberneckin', 'Clean Up Your Own Back Yard'.

    Sid Phillips / The Simon Sound - Two Generations (Contour) First one in the wild for a *long* time. 'Drums Away', 'Watermelon Man', 'Spinning Wheel'.

    Graham Walker Sound - Hair (Saga) The good pressing with 'Coloured Spade'. Nice break on 'Hair', Hawshaw & Hurdle in the band.

    Sir John Betjeman - Late Flowering Love (Charisma) Musical interpretation with poetry. Clem Cattini on the traps... 'Senex' seems to be the best one on here.

    The Gospel Ayres - I Wanna Testify (Contour) USAF personnel on this UK only LP, soul/funk versions of gospel classics... the title track plus my fave 'God Gave Us A Song' are the winners here. Anybody else rate this one ? Never hear anyone mentioning it.

    On top of this lot and some crappy 45s, found two Carltonware money boxes, a nice Poole Pottery Delphis bowl and best of all, a proper greengrocers set of scales with the original imperial measurements cards inside. Very pleased with that find for a fiver, last set I saw for sale were £75 quid.

      Don't try using those scales in public - you'll get the jail if you don't use metric these days!!!

      A local spot turned up Equals "Born Ya", Mandingo compilation, Vulcans "Star Trek" LP, Harmonia on Brain, Enoch Light "Spaced Out", Lowrell LP w/"Mellow Mellow", Invaders "Spacing Out" (re-issue), Roy Porter "Inner Feelings" (re-issue) and a few other bits. Only found doubles in the charitys - Alan Tew "Magnificent Westerns" and Diane Solomon "Take Two"...

      No Duke Grant's "Hammond Gold" for me this weekend, which makes a change!
      There MUST be a Hymns-A-Swingin' in this box...

        I think me and COlin got about 5 between us - we've made a pact to get them all out of circulation!

          Is that a challenge ?

          I'll race you all until the end of the year, then we'll count. Got to catch 'em all !

          Regret leaving one at the boot now......

            Ha! You can count me in the great Hammond Gold hunt. At the end of the year we can burn them ensuring their future rarity!

              I was all for relasing them into the wild somewhere where they had long since died out. Or maybe never existed.

              If people are really up for this challenge, maybe could set up a 'sticky' thread, where we can keep score and have a running total.

              Am I taking this too seriously ? Nah.....

                Not that I have a hope of winning, I think that's a cracking idea.

                      I take it that anyone buying this copy will be disqualified?!?

                            I thought I would try this with Rod Stewart's Atlantic Crossing in an attempt to create a 'market' and retire on teh vastly inflationary proceeds I might make ----Not had much luck yet, I expect it 'll happen all of a sudden

                            This weekend i got

                            Edgar Broughton Band's Apache Drop Out
                            Incredible Bongo Band's - Bongo Rock '73
                            Quiller -Quiller (should any one want this let us know)
                            I Pooh - Tanta Voglia di Lei 45 (appalling but 'I Pooh)
                            John Baldry - Iko Iko - never heard this before it's very wacky
                            Gallery - I Believe in Music - big mistake saw the Dennis Coffey production and Sussex label and wasted 25p
                            city of Westminster String Band - A Touch of Velvet and a String of Brass - John Schroeder at his lushest - which remminds me why I hate him.
                            Les Humphries - Sound '74 - always one good track hidden in their hyperhappy singing I buy 'em for the fashion tips and the scary oriental man with the big hair.
                            A Les Dawson LP - which is outstanding
                            Some 60's Glen Campbell Lp's
                            Bobby Gentry - Patchwork - always wonder if she's 'married' which makes me a bit of a saddo.
                            Bob and Marcia - Pied Piper LP - Mint Trojan which I shall sandpaper to give it that authentic 'Old trojan' effect.
                            Specialising in Rusty Goffe since 2009

                              got my long awaited deWolfe trades from an American contact this weekend: 9-10-Out, Heavy Truckin, Hogan/Hawk/Dirty John, Gun Barrell Highway, Synthesizer Contact, Hot Night, Motivation, Backing Tracks: Rock + Funk Instrumental, Big Beat.

                              and a few 45s...
                              Jess & James - Something For Nothing - 1968 Euro-Beat
                              BGR - Tightrope/I Want To Make Love To You - nice funky doublesider
                              Etta James - Fire - still nice
                              Cash McCall - I'm In Danger - this upfront soul cut on Checker must surely be the influence for 'Try It' by Standells/Attack. Wicked.
                              Auger/Driscoll -
                              new SPOKE release: >>> SEE HERE <<< RKM LIBRARY BEATS
