  • Weekend finds

    The decent record stall in the market near my house has closed down. This has in the past yielded both Benny & The Duke and Working In A Soul Mine for a tenner so a definite loss and no records for me this weekend. 'Cept for the copy of Amazonas Play Santana that arrived this morning in the post (cheers Son of Stan).

    Hope the rest of you had a better one.

        Didn&#39;t realy have a lot of time this weekend as i had people staying. But a quick Friday morning spin around the local charries came up with:

        A (barking) Lithuanian jazz lp from the 70s. Don&#39;t expect me to decipher who it&#39;s by....It&#39;s got one track i particularly like which is just percussion and buzz flute;

        A US Paul Mauriat LP inc. a funky version of &quot;Jesu Christo&quot;;

        A collection of 30 or so US independent / modern soul obscurities, mainly 12&quot;s (some great stuff, i left a load more from the same source in the shop - i&#39;ll probably go back for these soon. I wonder why someone would go to the trouble of seeking these out, amassing a collection and then just ditch them in a charity....).

        Quite pleased with that lot.

            Thanks. Its mainly obscure independent soul releases from the 80s. I ddn&#39;t pay much attention to that sort of stuff at the time so i didn&#39;t recognise a lot of it as I was going through it.

            Not had the chance for a proper listen yet, I had a quick flick through them when i got home and it all sounded quite strong.

            At work at the moment, the only ones I can call to mind are:

            A Jesse James LP on Gunsmoke (&quot;Looking Back&quot which appears to be reissued stuff from the mid 70s (&quot;If you want a love affair&quot;, plus others which i didn&#39;t know).

            The late 80s reissue of Bobby Thurston &quot;Sweetest Piece of the Pie&quot;.

            Strangely the only double I found in that batch was a house record (Faze Action, &quot;In the Trees&quot. I&#39;ll let you know if anything turns up on my return visit &#33;

                    Hehehe. cheeky gets.

                    It was Bennys Badekar. Its a 7&quot; of a danish animated film. The title track is funky as sin - Big drums, big hammond and big daft danish vocals.

                      Thursday &amp; Friday:

                      Soul Train Gang &quot;Don Cornelius presents...&quot; (Soul Train)

                      Real Thing &quot;Step Into Our World&quot; (pye) - british funk/ modern osul piece from &#39;78. Anyone got any further info on this group?

                      Stan Lee &quot;Tomorrow&quot; (Birthright) - Gospel soul funk piecce. Apparently the first release on the Los Angeles based Birthright label

                      Dreams &amp; Illusions &quot;S/T&quot; (Verve Forecast) - nice psych piece from what I&#39;m guessing is &#39;67. lots of them moody loops and even a b-boy style drumbreak that comes outta nowhere.

                      Moe Koffman &quot;Curried Soul&quot; (Kama Sutra)

                      Marvin Gaye &amp; Tammi Terrell &quot;Ain&#39;t No Mountain High Enough&quot; (Motown) - how could you ever pass anything by from these 2? I swear this was like the best Male/female singing duo ever

                      Margaret Singana &quot;Where is the Love&quot; (Casablanca) - not as good as I&#39;d hoped it be. Some songs got great intro&#39;s but not a good listen all the way through

                      Saturday random digs...

                      Sreet Corner Symphony &quot;Little Funk Machine&quot; (ABC) - more mid-late 70&#39;s funk...can&#39;t get enough of this right now

                      Otis redding &quot;The Immortal&quot; (Atco) - double

                      Cerrone &quot;The Golden Touch&quot; (Cotillion) - Rocket in the Pocket...[b]double[b]

                      Al Rahman &quot;Cry of the Floridian tropic Son&quot; (Tablichi) - Man another white whale cleared off the list. I&#39;ve been after this Al Rahman (AKA Doug Carn) for like 4 years. I nearly bugged out when I read the back and saw that it was recorded here in West Covina.


                      Sunday at PCC I went for quality over quantity

                        Went off to that London for a job interview, and devoted a considerable amount of time to record buying afterwards. As well as a whole fistful of top libraries (lots of Mozart Edition - yay&#33, I found:

                        &#39;The Best Songs Of Our Lives vol 4 - The 50s&#39; - The London Sound Seventy (MCA)
                        Don&#39;t pass this one if you see it - it&#39;s got the funkiest version of &#39;Rock Around The Clock&#39; ever&#33; I kid you not - Pete Smith arranges, Alan Parker solos, it&#39;s brilliant&#33;

                        Sven Bertil-Taube (EMI)
                        Bought in the hope he would take Edward Woodward&#39;s lead and do a vocal version of the Puppet on a Chain theme - he doesn&#39;t. He does, however, sing &#39;Dixie&#39; in a Swedish accent, which sort of makes up for it.

                        And best of all.......

                        &#39;Discolongamax&#39; - Max Bygraves (Pye)
                        Oh yes, it does exist - Max dons his white suit and does his best to cash in on the disco craze, with hilarious consequences. Features Dave Mattacks from Fairport Convention on drums too&#33;

                        And I went past the old Pye/Marble Arch HQ in Cumberland Place - also the location for the Harlington Straker studios in UFO, so I was whistling the theme tune all day as a consequence.

                          I can recommend the Johnny Lytle one plus the one with Lionel Hampton (I think?) doing a version of Psychedelic Sally.

                          All the others I&#39;ve heard have been decided average.
                          He also contributed songs for the Jim Henson movie vehicle 'Muppets From Space'.

                            In a marvellous case of synchronicity, this track features on The Program&#39;s Easter mix.

                              Yep - second the Lionel Hampton one - actually most of side two is decent.

                              Is the Johnny Lytle volume the one with &#39;Ode to Billie Joe&#39;? This one has been avoiding my grasp. I looked through what must have been pretty much every volume in the old jazzers shop and it was not to be found&#33;
