    Found a few bits and pieces today, also got a trade package from a fellow vulture:


    Lyn Christopher - S/T
    The Elephant Band - Stone Penguin / Groovin' at the Apollo 45 - Anyone know anything about this?

    The Meters - Trick Bag (Charity find!&#33
    Play Away - S/T - Superstition is a cool track
    The Shadows - Out of the Shadows

    3 Hur El - Hurel Arsivi - This seems to be a Turkish group. This has got tons of drum breaks and cool passages, I'm not a big fan of the vocals, however, they don't entirely spoil the LP.

    Jack Ashford and the Sound of Detroit - Do the Choo-Choo Pts 1+2 - Blaze

    Edison Electric Band - West Wind / Ship of the Future - Cotillion.

    The Natural Four - Give a Little Love / The Devil Made me do it - Chess.

    Midnight Movers Unlimited - Follow the Wind pts 1+2 - Renee.

    Soul Devalents - This is our Soul / Grasshopper - North Bay.

    Any help much appreciated.

    This is their rarest 45 - 'Numbers' is a heavy fuzz-rocker - seen it go on ebay for £40+ but can get it for a fiver if you search around

    My finds/receipts/upgrades:
    Know Soul/Purple Daze 12" - been after this for donkeys - found one on the net in Italy
    Equipe 84 - Buffa 7" - nice beats/buzzflute
    Hosanna - Hipit 7" - funk trade
    Vanity Fare - Megowd 7" - hammond screamer trade
    Lloyd Alexander Real Estate - Gonna Live Again 7" - best ever President 45!

      The Elephant Band is one of the rarer Mojo singles (I assume you have the UK Mojo - I have never heard of or seen a US release of this) and used to go for £100 on some of the more pricier dealers lists. I think it&#39;s cooled a bit since then so is probably more a £40 touch now.

      None of the Moments stuff on Stang is worth much. They were All Platinums best selling band and sold lots of singles on the label and it&#39;s subsidiaries.

      The Midnight Movers &amp; Jack Ashford were both released in the UK on Contempo &amp; Prophesy respectively (not so sure about the latter - this is all off the top of my head), which is how I know them. The UK issues are easy to pick up (£3-£5), the US issues I don&#39;t know about, but I assume they are just as abundant.
      He also contributed songs for the Jim Henson movie vehicle 'Muppets From Space'.

              Not today, but earler in the week i found a few nice soundtrack LPs in the local Oxfam (not Oxfam music):

              The Man With the Golden Gun
              Planet of the Apes
              The Omen
              Obsession (got a few nice string samples)
              From Russia with Love

              They were £2/3 each and all almost mint (I actually thought they might be reissues because they looked unplayed). The From Russia... lp was actually a different pressing on Golden Film Music, Andy thought it might be rarer pressing for some club or something, can anyone (Ed?) shed any light on this?

              I got quite excited as there was a Barberella LP in the same pile, thought it was the OG for a second but it turned out to be a &quot;Music of Barberella and Other Films&quot;
              It did have a funky version of Into the Mountains with the main riff played on a clav though.

                In the post:

                The Status Cymbal: ‘In The Morning’ (RCA)
                The Calliope: ‘Steamed’ (Buddah)
                Seven: ‘Song Is Song, Album Is Album’ (Thunderbird)
                Smith: ‘Minus Plus’ (Dunhill)
                Karen Beth: ‘The Joys Of Life’ (Decca)
                Dick Hyman: ‘Moog – Eclectic Electrics’ (Command)
                Bert Jansch: ‘Rosemary Lane’ (Reprise)

                At the markets:

                Electronic Concept Orchestra: ‘Moog Groove’ (Limelight)
                Lee Hazlewood: ‘Requiem For An Almost Lady’ (Reprise)
                Peter Wyngarde: ‘S/T’ (RCA)
                Parliament: ‘Live – P.Funk Earth Tour’ (Casablanca 2xLP)

                On a very tight budget, so had to leave a fair bit, including a huge box of early 80s reggae 7” &amp; 12”s, which I hadn’t the first idea about, as none of the labels or names rang any bells. If any Jamaica types have wants lists of this stuff, lemme know &amp; I’ll check again for trades if the box is there again next week…not my bag, but a lot of it looked like it might have been smaller labels, less obvious artists etc, all from the &#39;79 - &#39;86 kind of era.

                    Are the other ECO lp&#39;s as good as Moog Groove?

                              You go about 10 years without finding any records in a charity shop, and then you find two lots on a weekend.
                              Anyway I got the following

                              Stills - Steven Stills (UK Atlantic orig)
                              Ramblin Boy - Tom Paxton (Elektra 70s press)
                              John Wesley Harding - Bob Dylan (UK CBS orig)
                              Early Songs - Gordon Lightfoot (UK Liberty)
                              The Going&#39;s Great - The Tomorrow&#39;s Children (London)
                              We Shall Overcome, The March On Washington (NAACP)
                              Merry Christmas - David Frost and Billy Taylor (Philips)

                              The Taylor and Frost has an amazing cut called Bright Star In The East , is this a common album, I&#39;ve only ever seen the other album (I think)
                              The We Shall Overcome is Martin Luther Kings &#39;I Have A Dream Speach&#39;, and the live performances from the day, including Bob Dylan. I can&#39;t find it listed on Dylan biogs so am guessing (hoping&#33 its super rare.
