  • Weekend dig expeditions!

    The weekend expeditions started yesterday for me with a drop by a couple of second hand stores in Lisbon. It will continue tomorrow with the weekly antiques fair close to my home that always allows me to turn up at least a couple of goodies:
    Here's the list of yesterdays' efforts:

    Lou Rawls - You're Good For Me (Capitol, US LP)
    Produced by Axelrod

    The Cats n' Jammer Kids - Disco Drum (Ebony 12&quot
    Disco drum breaks all over! From '77.

    Various Artists (incluing Edu Lobo and Salvador Trio) - Folklore & Bossa Nova do Brasil (MPS, french LP)

    Peter Jacques Band - Fire Night Dance (Prelude, spanish LP)

    Johnny Bristol - Feeling The Magic (MGM, german LP)

    Miguel Graça Moura - Pianorama vol 1 (Orfeu, portuguese LP)
    Miguel Graça Moura - Pianorama vol 3 (Orfeu, portuguese LP)
    Portuguese psych rocker in the 60's turned jazz lounger in the 70's (as these LP's show, with a couple of really good moments) and symphonic orchestras conductor in the 80's...

    Ananga Ranga - Regresso as Origens (Metro Som, portuguese LP)
    Portuguese 70's prog jazzers! Nice stuff!

      Indeed... sounds more adventurous than most of the spoken word productions of today!

        Sunday at the antiques fair! Beautiful place by the sea, warm weather, all perfect.

        I scored (brought some unwanted records and managed to do some incredible trades):

        Rare Earth - Willie Remembers (Motown, US LP)

        Miles Davis - Water Babies (CBS, US LP)

        B.T. Express - Function at the Junction (CBS, US LP)

        The Stylistics - Let's Put It All Together (Avco, US LP)

        Herbie Mann - The Evolution of Mann (Atlantic, Germany LP)

        Miltinho with Orchestra and Chorus - Bossa y Balanço (Vergara, Spain LP)

        and, one of my personal Holy grails. I have been looking for this LP for years and to score it through a trade with meaningless records and in spanking Mint condition:

        Formula 7 - Som Psicodelico (parlophone, Brasil LP)

        Great covers of Watermelon Man and Pata Pata (with a monster drum break) on this brasilian pearl from 1968!!! What a great record.

        Now, for the rest of the day to turn up perfect, all i need is for Benfica to beat Porto at the finals of the portuguese cup this afternoon!

          Also scored a few 45's with the trade:

          Sly and the Family Stone - Thank you/Everybody is a star
          Sly and the Family Stone - Hot Fun in the Summertime/Fun
          The Main Ingredient Black Seeds (4 song EP)
          Arthur Conley People Sure act Funny (4 song Ep)
          Solomon Burke - Proud Mary/What am i living for

          all of these are portuguese pressings.

                Stayed in a caravan by the coast only to find the site had it&#39;s own boot sale.

                All very civilised and managed to pick up a box of 60+ Boosey &amp; Hawkes from the early seventies (only listened to SBH 3034 and that&#39;s a stormer). In addition to 20 mid eighties Brutons and a solitary KPM , but it was &#39;Music for a Young Generation&#39; so no grumbles here. .

                All this and back for bacon butties by 9 o&#39;clock followed by serious sun and beer relaxation.

                    And Benfica won, 2-1, after 120 minutes of an incredible match.

                    I don&#39;t know if this question will sound stupid, but any Chelsea supporters here?

                      Just back from a weekends digging in the NE with Chris and Sie Vulture - bulging bag of records to be gone through. All I can remember at the moment are Nucleus and a Purple Fox.

                      Just wanted to say a big thank you to the Vultures for their generous hospitality, driving me about and letting me write down a shed loads of tips. Also cheers to the NE VV Tanners crew for some top tunes and a good laugh.

                        Fantastic weather, a couple from London on Thursday, then a few at the Saturday Cattle Market and a few more at the Sunday Colwick Racecourse bootsale. A good, solid bunch of Vulture type thingsÂ…and a few oddities.

                              the son &amp; lumiere is a pretty rare one, if it&#39;s the Georges Delerue album. goes for quite a few quid to Delerue collectors. nice find&#33;

                              the dave pell LP&#39;s a goodie too, if only a one or two tracker. again, that goes for a few quid down here in That London. his version of &#39;Oh Calcutta&#39; is ace, still one of my favourite loungey numbers.
