    Hi Ilmod,

    Don't suppose you're willing to trade this LP with me are you as it's a double? If so, please let me know.

    Cheers!
    A leaping rocker with a strong mood, a moderate beat and a safari feel.

        had a good one too - mostly 80s stuff - LPs and 12"s by PiL, Durutti Column, King Crimson (80s), Loose Tubes and more... 70s stuff: the Pussycat LP on Sonet, some weird Swedish blues band LP on Sonet, Jonathan Swift - Songs (Harold Fisher on drums, cover looks like ace folk-funk - DOH, rubbish countryish LP), a stack of 15 or so minty late 70s/early 80s funk 12"s... some good late 70s funk 45s... nothing too rare but all solid!

        one good UK hip-hop find too - Fresh Ski & Mo Rock, Talking Pays (Tuff Groove 12&quot

            Nah, if it's the one I've got ('First Of All&#39. It's got one nice, Dutchhonkytonkfunk number on there ('Do It&#39 but the rest is piffle. And you can get 'Do It' on the flip of the 'Mississippi' 45 which looks much better in your box

            Just found this as well, http://www.alexgitlin.com/pcat.htm - anyone heard The BG's (Beat Girls) from Holland?

            Also 'the as chauvinistic known country of Great Britain it was a #1 single'???

              What year's that from, Ed? Late eighties?

              I found a great four track seven inch EP this weekend by a band called Bookends. It's a private press and I'm guessing they never made it beyond the pubs and clubs circuit but they do great funky version on 'I Wish'. Mind you it's still difficult to listen to that track without wanting to stick skewers in Will Smith's eyes.

                I've had a good few days and picked these up:

                7's:
                a big pile of Avenue and Embassy EPs
                Smiths 'Rhythm and Crunch'
                SL2 'Way in my brain'
                Chairmen of the Board 'Morning Glory'
                Kracker 'Medicated Goo'
                A 45 test-press from the 60's with a blank BWRS (Bristol and West Recording Service) label. Sadly not a long-lost freakbeat single, but a school choir. A very nice track on the B-side though, sounds like the school band, quite Tom Waits-esque.

                Mid-80s flexi with a pastiche of the London label, turns out to be a flyer for a warehouse party featuring Jazzie B, Mark Moore and a host of London DJs. It's rapped over a loop of 'Just Kissed My Baby'! - this is something I really wanted to do a few years ago (the flexi-as-flyer, not rapping over the Meters), but I don't think anyone in the world still presses flexis...

                LPs:
                Moody Blues 'On the threshold of a dream' Deram mono
                I must admit I might nt have picked this up apart from Daddy Ya Ya insisting - it's actually a very decent album.

                Barrabas 'Power' RCA
                hadn't seen this one of their LPs before - some very nice folky bits on here

                Jorge Ben 'Samba Nova' Island
                mid-70's comp...

                Evan Lurie 'Selling water by the side of the river' (Antilles)
                early 90's world/jazz/ambience - nice!

                Trio Bulgarka 'The Forest is Crying' Hannibal
                amazing Bulgarian folk vocals

                Orchestra Harlow comp on Charly

                Brian May 'Hits of the 70s' Hammard
                ropey big band from Melbourne with 'Shaft' etc

                Rolf Harris teaches the 350s
                Stylophone instruction LP (..'always keep your stylus tips clean..&#39

                Chiswick Lower School Choir 'Captain Noah'/'Holy Moses'
                Bizarre! A cover version of the ENTIRE Kings Singers LP by a London school choir

                Alan Elsdon and his Jazzband (Rediffusion Gold Star)
                almost certainly complete pony, too scared to listen yet.

                In the post:

                Steel Mill 'Green Eyed God'
                Peddlers 'It's So Easy'
                Frankie Beverley's Raw Soul 'People in the Know'

                Michael Gibbs 'Tanglewood 63' LP
                Freak Scene 'Psychedelic Psoul' LP
                We know when a mate buys it for you too.

                    jim's right - not really much cop. the 45's got the best track off it.

                      philipe nicaud - erotico nicaud LP
                      Les Novices - De Roubaix 7" ep Barclay. amazing funk from the man.

                        there's no date on the label, but it definitely sounds late 80s. the production and the loops they use (lots of JB) sound late 80s. it's on a label from Clapham!

                        the 12's good - 3 versions of 2 tracks, a track per side - vocal, instro and bonus beats on each side. production on the backing track's a little quiet but the vocals are good.

                        has anyone who knows about hip-hop heard it? might bring it to brillo next week.

                          Cheers Ed. I remember Fresh Ski. No recollection of that record though. Not sure about the label either. Colin Hero is very knowledgable on UK hip hop so he may be able to drop some knowledge if he's lurking about.

                            I'm liking iueke's line in reserved/smug understatement!! Did 'OK'!!

                            That's one of the best haul's I've seen in a long time! How long have I been trying to find that Phillippe Nicaud LP? Years and years. And those DeWolfes are pretty much excellent too.

                            One thing I've remarked on before, how the HELL do you boys know which classical LPs are rare/collectable? Personally, I see classical LPs as an annoyance at best cos they're so often in the way when I'm trying to crack on with the digging. I must have flicked past thousands of ££s worth in my time, but who'd know?

                            I got pretty much sod all this weekend by the way.

                            Just got the Common People LP (reissue) in Selectadisc for £3.99 though, nice 180g vinyl and a chance to hear why this LP goes for £200. Plenty left if anyone wants a copy.

                              Can't help you as I've only got their "The Long Awaited Paroxysm" EP on Conscious Records but its a firm favourite of mine with 'Incredible' from it being among my top 5 UK hip hop tunes. I also have an early comp on Positive Beat with a couple of tracks from Fresh Ski including the brilliant 'Notting Hill' but I did see a copy of the 12" Ed found go for more money than I can afford a while ago on the 'bay so I guess its pretty sought after and a good find.

                              A pretty incomplete but reasonably useful UK hip hop discography can be found at http://www.low-life.fsnet.co.uk/
