    Where I come from it's a 'plaggy' bag and it wasn't exactly groaning with the weight, but while kicking my heels before going for my dentist appointment, I happened upon a vinyl copy of Dennis Wilson's 'Pacific Ocean Blue' (Wayne, it was from Big Apple and unlike most of the stock there, in really good condition&#33.

    So, Mr LHC, you are off the hook!

    Not listened to it yet mind, so I could be on here tomorrow asking what all the fuss was about!

    PS New Beta Band CD, damn fine. If you're already into them, you'll really rate it, if you're coming to it as a Beta virgin, you'll think it's OK, 7/10 kinda thing. Looking forward to seeing them in a couple of weeks anyway.

      we like Doctor Golf too.... it does indeed 'swing' (pun intended)

      Nice bag of finds Boney...
      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.

        I remember being disappointed that there aren't actually any 'doctor' samples though

          Doctor samples? Ewww... like urine, blood etc? *shudder*

          In London yesterday, and had a few hours in the afternoon to find a few cheap Brazil reissues & general bargain Cds (and - not being llmod1 - to mostly wander round record-free favourite spot environments like The National Gallery and the Embankment) but also, without even looking:

          Ted Heath & His Music - The Big Ones (Decca Phase 4) - the one with Roland Shaw arrangements, 'Spinning Wheel', 'Satisfaction', 'Honky Tonk Women' etc

          Fiachra Trench - Organ Party (Major Minor)

          Both, oddly enough, in a box in the basement sale of a bookshop on the Charing Cross Road, while looking for something to read on the return train, not in a record place at all. Go figure...

            Really good day: a day off, +15 celcius, sun is shining, nice house warming party this evening etc...

            Found couple of babies from flea market (5 euros each):
            - Olli Ahvenlahti - The Poet (this is always a wall flower with 150-200 euros in it if you ever happen to see it)
            - Otto Donner & Juhani Aaltonen - Strings (this goes for 30-50 euros in walls too)

            Nice shit and some additional songs to my almost ready easter mix tape

              More postal digs...

              Bob Downes Open Music 'Episodes' LP
              Bob Downes Open Music 'Diversions At 4am' LP

              Make 'Deep Down Heavy' and 'Electric City' sound like pop music - much of these is just flute and synthesiser or other accompaniment, although some tracks on 'Episodes' do have double bass and drums.

              And a bumper bundle of LPs from Germany, including Paul Nero's 'Soul Party' and 'Detroit Soul Party'.

              You freeking scientologists are all the same, quible, dribble and then demand ice creams. Ohhhhhhhhhhh.

                Gah! I went past there recently - if I'd known there were records in there I'd have gone in!

                Nice find, that Fiachra Trench LP, especially 'Our Day Will Come' - I found mine when I was doing my A-levels, and I had a straight choice: buy 'Organ Time' or buy food. 'Organ Time' won - I was very thin in those days......

                  Ah, the advantages of being nerdy in several areas at once!

                  Actually, to say there were records there is a slight misnomer - there were about seven LPs and a couple of CDs in a pile of old exhibition catalogues and sheet music.

                  When I picked up the Ted Heath, I thought for a moment I'd got a 60s art exhibition thing in my hands...

                    Any titles?

                    There are some seriously good 80's pressings I've scooped from a few Polish shops before, one of Krstyna Pronko's joints featuring one of the most heaviest dubbed out breaks I ever heard!

                    Tom [Green Man] had a very, very nice early eighties sounding disco funk type thing by her the other nite too. I can't recall the title now!

                      Well, if we're gonna post up fresh deliveries:

                      I finally got a spanking copy of Funky Black Man

                      Barbara & Ernie - Play with Fire on 45

                      Alan Tew - The Prowler on 45

                      Johanna Group - Strange love Action [You gotta hear this to believe it.....Madness] on Chappell

                      And now I await my Ali Ben! Nice one Serms for nailing this beast!

                      None of these were 50p charidee jobs btw! I'd be recovering from a heart by-pass if they were!!!!!

                        Then you must look out for a 45 spoken word record that helps doctors / medical students check for sounds of heart beats.... its got a stethascope on the front, & its very stupid.
                        Although a sound burger would possibly fit in a dr's coat pocket

                          All I had this week was The Soulful Strings 'The Magic Of Christmas'.At least it'll give me a head start on my Xmas mix.

                            Nope, the only guff with mine is the insert with the track details. But one of the sleeves isn't made up, it was never folded and glues and the names of the producer and arranger have been carefully cut out.
