    A pleasurable pain all the the same. Thanks for the welcome and I'll pull up a chair.

    Whats up everybody,

    first of all I got to say, Im so glad to have found this forum for music/vinyl nerds like me. i had been looking for a while now and only stumbling upon many deserted ones..

    Anyway, Im 26, from Germany, working in finance for a large construction corp., and spending way too much time and money on records. I enjoyed a musical upbringing (at first forced by the parents), playing violin and (electric) guitar, which was probably the best thing that could happen to me. I quickly got introduced to various genres, skimming through blues, jazz, metal, indie, punk and ska. In the last decade my focus has moved to (sample-based) Hip-Hop/Beats, Soul, Jazz, Funk and Rare Groove, sprinkled with the occasional and partly growing lust for sample-based house and psych-jazz/funk/soul. I myself DJ a bit and make regular mixes for various occasions and Im slowly getting into the production side. (if you feel like checking it out see: https://soundcloud.com/beater-pan)

    All in all: I think my musical knowledge/input and my record collection can only profit from VG+!

    By the way: Great choice of an icon by my pre-poster! Idris Mohammed is essential listening. I love how Jamie XX sampled his stuff in his recent solo debut!

    Hello, am stateside & haven't really been new here, as I've been lurking for a long while and had a few inquiries, though have frequented others boards for awhile. Thought maybe a formal into would be good.

    Pretty interesting here, as I am attempting to come across more British folk pressings, recordings in any format. Have been collecting for many years (since the 80's), and have collaborated with album cover design projects, etc. I do graphic design and also am interested in posters, books about the 60's - 70's psychedelic related and so on.

    I feel kind of lost here as it seems like there's a lot to explore, as this is new territory for me. Would appreciate anyone pointing me in the right direction...
    Welcome aboard Konig.... Many on her like folk (British or otherwise) Im sure there will be loads to share

    Hi Konig, welcome aboard. I'd say try initiating a thread in your area of interest, maybe people can suggest similar things, depending on how you present it, and see what happens. .Don't be a wallflower, dive in, we all love talking about music and are all looking for good suggestions, so you are definitely in the right place

    I didn´t get a PM, Geoff. I´ve got the record and it´s in better condition than the discogs one.

    I saw it for a few Euros on the Spanish Todocoleccion site, and bought it on the strength of the cover. Pyramids, belly dancer, organ - it had to be good, and it is - dense, swirling Arabic music with traditional and western instruments, and lots of organ noodling. I don´t speak Arabic, so I just put the only non-arabic words on the record when I listed it here.

    Sout El Hob is, i think, one of the larger Egyptian labels, so I doubt it´s particularly rare

    I´ll PM you now, so you can reply.

    Yeah, welcome and do start a new thread Geoff Vane about this. Can you post a soundclip? Are you sure babycart has a copy? I hear he is 100% flapper disco now.

    Start a thread of some of your favourite sleeves?

    Welcome aboard GV. You know how to post a comment obviously, so browse, dip in, and don't be afraid to ask, or to tell. I'm sure some info on your lp will be forthcoming.

    Hello VG+ people,

    I'm Geoff Vane from The Netherlands. Not a native speaker of the English language although my name might make you think I am. I'll just try make as little mistakes as possible.

    I was a member of the Facebook group called Sh*t Record Covers. It was a very offensive group so FB closed it down. It has returned as Son of SRC. (go see!)
    This group showed me a lot of weird covers which I liked. I couldn't resist researching. I ended up at Discogs of course.

    So I bought a turntable again and started to collect records. Some normal ones and a few wacky ones.

    My latest obsession is this one here:

    Dalaat Fakhat
    Agaeb El Rakasat El Sabaa
    (The Miracles of 7 Dances)

    This is the Discogs entry I made:

    http://www.discogs.com/Dalaat-Fakhat...elease/6809753

    Not sure if posting links is allowed. But I hope you will warn me first for bad behavior.

    I ended up here, at VG+ because I found member Babycart owns the record. I tried to PM him but either I'm too stupid or he omitted the option.

    I even consulted random Egyptian people to help me find a copy. They are puzzled and tell me this is nomadic non Egyptian music. The label is Egyptian however.

    Babycart has it, a Dutch expat called Madrotter has it and a dude called Dr. Zoze on Discogs. That just 3 mentions on the whole of interweb.

    If anyone can tell me more about this album, please do. Meanwhile I'd like to learn more about how this forum works. Tell me!

    'twas a pretty basic £80 Ion deck from that high end music specialist...Maplins. I'm probably impressed because my expectations were so low, sort of reverse psych. Couldn't be any simpler to use, a CD into the laptop once, a lead from turntable to to laptop and away you go. Genuinely idiot proof, I'm living proof!

    The basic in built speakers are a bit poor, clear but tinny. But I was pleasantly surprised how good it sounded with a couple of fairly basic Logitech computer speakers plugged in. From there I've gone up a couple of grades, rounding up various bits of kit disguarded by the kids and it does appear to be able to keep up with better and better speakers. Which was an eye opener, as for years I'd wanted to hold out for a decent turntable. Part of me still wants a respectably expensive set up, part of me knows £300 / £400 buys a lot of second hand vinyl. And yes, anyone is that someone that appears to think a dishwasher is a priority.
