      Mwahahah. They did have some other interesting library stuff though. . that Alan Parker LP with "Swirl" on it looked good. Think it was £20ish. . .Maybe a 1-tracker though ??

      Oddly I had the other Bruton release that compiled half of Drama Montage with Francis Monkman's "Tempus Fugit". It was just the right side of synthy cheese, but I sold the comp last week. This week, just behind the Bennett, is the Monkman LP for only a fiver !! Sold.

      I took a load of my exchange stuff to Intoxica today. . all my Bruce Lee LP's etc. . .but they are "not buying". Guy behind the counter was nice though. Went to MVE and slapped a nice pile (2 Japanese Bruce Lee LP's, original Space 1999, my mint copy of the Silencers etc etc) on the counter. "£150 exchange or £100 cash". Yeah right ! Cyalater !

      They do occasionally have the odd bargain, but when you try and sell to 'em (Reckless too in my experience) they really fleece you.

            the album&#39;s called &quot;9-10-out&quot; and i&#39;ve been banging on about it for ages now. it&#39;s a great record - &quot;swirl&quot; is nice, but you need the pounding &quot;gut&quot; as well.

            also it contains &quot;joyride&quot; which i&#39;ve just done a cover version of, and many other good tunes ranging from powerful stuff, to slinky bossas. i love every track.

              Cobblers. Maybe I should have exchanged something for it then &#33;&#33;

              Was thinking of using the rest of my vouchers on a Kurosaw &quot;Yojimbo&quot; DVD. Yeh, it was the film one. The dance one also has a soundtracks section which is worth checking out - found a copy of the avengers / professionals by Lawrie Johnson there today &#33; (Now on my website for trade or whatever).

              Hmm. I can&#39;t remember the bloody name of this Bennett / Monkman LP now. . .faack. Da, got it:

              brk 1 (Bruton, obviously) driving force mike vickers. Brian bennett. Richard hill. Johnny pearson. Steve gray. John fiddy. Francis monkman. Frank ricotti. Les hurdle. Jim lawless 1978

              It&#39;s actually quite good, especially as a producer&#39;s tool. Fairly funky, some nice little cues too.

              There&#39;s one on this site -

              Hey, did anyone notice this ??

              http://www.sculptor.clara.net/ch4/disc-collection.html

              NB, put a copy of &quot;Gun Man&quot; onto my trades list if anyone has anything for it. . .

                True enough with anything individually valuable, but they&#39;re good if you&#39;ve got bulk to get shot of - many a time I&#39;ve had more than fair deals from them on pretty general, bog-standard stuff. Probably because it&#39;s mostly overpriced in the shop itself...

                Funnily enough, I&#39;m going to be down there on Saturday with a bag of old chuff I need to clear out...if there are no decent trades, my rejects will be paying for dinner in Chinatown on Saturday night&#33;

                  I never see any of the Bruton BRK series anywhere, for some reason - the BRD and BRGs are dead easy to find, on the other hand (which is good &#39;cos I love &#39;em&#33

                  The person who runs that website&#39;s actually selling off his library collection on eBay - it was from him I bought that copy of KPM1060 that&#39;s still lost in the post&#33;

                    yep, top LP that one; &#39;Spice&#39; is wicked and lots of that buzz-flute gubbins too. &#39;Gut&#39; is the killer though.

                      Was in both this morning, I have to concur with Sermad, the soundtrack one was chuff heaven, and I don&#39;t mean of the   variety.

                      There&#39;s a Hair OST in the dance one, the hawkshaw version if anyone wants it.  There was also a nice selection of nice Major Force West &amp; Nigo white labels I&#39;ve always been after, but at prices I&#39;m not willing to pay    But having said that it does obviously have a much better selection of new dance music than the brum MVE.

                      I have a few Bruton BRH libraries for any Disco Stu&#39;s out there, willing to trade for any weirdy beardy banjo music.

                        OK, I went back into the film MVC and reserved &quot;9-10-Out&quot;. Will go and try to exchange some crappy soundtracks for it tomorrow. .. better be worth it &#33;&#33;&#33;&#33;

                        Otherwise it gets slapped on the trade pile.

                        Speaking of which, my slightly iffy Japanese Bruce Lee Lp&#39;s are being sent back out East unless anyone would like to make me an offer on &#39;em.

                          it&#39;s not everyone&#39;s cup of tea, but put it this way i wouldn&#39;t want to be without it.

                            the album&#39;s called &quot;9-10-out&quot; and i&#39;ve been banging on about it for ages now. it&#39;s a great record - &quot;swirl&quot; is nice, but you need the pounding &quot;gut&quot; as well.

                            also it contains &quot;joyride&quot; which i&#39;ve just done a cover version of, and many other good tunes ranging from powerful stuff, to slinky bossas. i love every track.

                            - I got &quot;9-10 Out&quot; about four years ago and only really listened to it once. Played it again yesterday though as a result of this thread and it certainly is a banger - &quot;Gut&quot; reminds me very much of Parker&#39;s &quot;Heavy Water&quot; track from KPM &quot;Afro Rock&quot; - gboth great tracks. &quot;Swirl&quot; and another track one of the other tracks on side 2 are also great.

                            I&#39;ve also noticed that &quot;Joyride&quot; from &quot;9-10 Out&quot; was used as background music on film no.144 on the &quot;Charley Says&quot; Public Information Films DVD&#33; (The one about not polishing floors under rugs so people won&#39;t slip up&#33 Still on the subject of this DVD - can anyone tell me which library LP that brilliant big band funk music is taken from that&#39;s heard on film no.138 (&quot;Dangerous Diamomnds&quot? Sounds for some reason like a French Chappell to me&#33;

                              I think the Dangerous Diamonds music is a Syd Dale job - it&#39;s got a few musical phrases that turn up in other Dale compositions, and also the obligatory fuzz guitar, but I&#39;ve not been successful in tracking it down yet.
