    There was a vol. 2?? Damn, I need to hear that!

    I've got one of the (presumably) few copies of volume 1 in the UK......
    I'll keep an eye out for you. Vol 2 seems to turn up a lot less often - this is the first time I'd bothered to check it out properly and I was happy to find a little bit of niceness.

    If anyone else in the U.K. wants Vol 1 I should be able to sort it out pretty sharpish. There's only one track on there that I like, the rest of it is all a bit "60s pop" sounding for my taste.

    Yes that's it.It was on the turntable as I was typing, hence the slip. Do you know anything about it?

    Right, so this landlord of a boozer had promised to let me look through "1000s" of ex jukebox records dating back to the 60s which he's got. I got there, as arranged, and he'd obviously had second thoughts. All he would show me was a copy of "Sound of Music". I hung around a bit in case he relented but in the end I decided to cut my losses and visit another source in the area

    Hey presto! Big pile of good 7"s, 50p each. Best of the bunch:

    Ben Moore "Love Music" (DJM) Great version.

    Simon Said "Put some more Flavour" (Atco 7&quot: Nice funky crossover soul.

    Ted Heath "Bombay Duckling" (Decca) Very,very cool Indo-cheese fusion.

    FF&Z "Spaced out Happy" (CBS) Funky hippy rock.

    Jacques Loussier Benson Hedges advertising 7". Various chamber jazz fag promoters.

    John Paul Joans "The Man from Nazareth" (Rak). Hilarious.

    Equals "Black Skinned Blue Eyed Boys" (President). Not easy on a 7" these days...

    Temptations "Beauty's only Skin Deep" (orig UK Tamla). Great. I'm old enough to remember when Keb Darge used to regularly play this.....

    Enough namin' vinyl for now...

    that Hartley Overdog album is quite nice.....check "Imitations From Home" on side 2.........
    he was a drummer from u.k.........he was the drummer in the Artwoods for a time and also worked with loads of peeps including Wynder K Frog......no sioux connections that i'm aware of.......

    TODAY I FOUND SOME STUFFS:

    C.C.S. "S/T" - really good and yet at times... so, so awful. That's prog i guess. (Or "that's jazz-rock" if you prefer).

    Keef Hartley Band "Overdog" - was this dude really a Sioux or something? Or just a mad Cockney? Can someone explain?

    20 Studio 1 Hits vol 2 - old NZ comp, couple of decent tracks on it.

    Kraftwerk "Tour De France" 12" - this beat is def.

    Martin Denny "Exotica" - first time I found a decent copy for cheap.

    ...plus several doubles that shall be appearing in the Trades section very soon...

    And one or two records that I'm too embarassed to mention in such distinguished company.

    thanks. I just noticed 2 of the titles are by Keith Mansfield so that's a bonus . I like what i've heard so far...the KPM 1261 lp has a nice John Carpenter-Escape From New York/Clockwork Orange/Vangelis/Goblin feel about it, i'm fairly certain I could use this in a mix somewhere. I'm happy with my purchases so I guess that's all that really matters.

    guess I was wondering if any of you rated these particular library lp's or not. I'm lucky if I ever come across library lp's like this here in the US so I wanted to know if they're rare or not. I paid $14 for the KPM 1261, $6 for the KPM 1278, $6.66 for the KPM 1266 & $8 for the Ray Russell Library lp. I checked the VV 'library' link but only found reviews of older titles. In any case, the prices didn't seem to bad imo.

    Never say never. I'm mad for a bit of Russian opera, me.

    Nah, it a 60s Marble Arch one with a pic of Patrick Macnee and the sexy Ms Rigg on the front.

    I've picked up a couple of different 7"s of "The New Avengers" though on my rounds fairly recently.

    Yesterday's diggery:

    Keith Mansfield - 'All You Need Is.....' (CBS)
    Just when you think you'll never find a decent record ever again, something like this turns up to make it all worthwhile - I had to stop myself shouting 'Yes!!' when this turned up for a quid! My fave ever version of Soul Thing, top arranging from The Mans, marvellous playing from Herbie, Clem and the Hawk and sleevenotes from Tony Blackburn - what more could you want?

    Alan Caddy - '20 Smash Hits of 1973' (Stereo Plus 3)
    Another covers LP to add to the collection, and another great version of '2001' - and best of all it's the one used on the test card in the mid-70s!

    Raymond Guiot 'Plays Bach' (Omega)
    If you ever watched daytime TV in the 70s and early 80s you'll have heard Raymond Guiot's baroque jazz flutery - his Telemusic track 'Ardente Elisabeth' was played all the time as interval music between schools programmes. Imagine a whole LP of the same sort of thing, and you get this - gorgeous gentle baroque jazz, with fellow Telemusicers Daniel Humair and Guy Pedersen providing the backing.

    Alla Pugachiova/Iosof Kobzon - Romances and Russian Songs (Balkanton/Melodia)
    Split between the Soviet chanteuse and Russian tenor, 1 side each. I don't think Blighty will be raiding this one for any of his compilations, somehow!

    today's digs:


    Sol Kaplan-The Spy Who Came In From The Cold ost

    KPM 1261-Technomatics lp

    KPM 1278-Historical Perspective lp

    KPM 1266-Image Makers lp

    Ray Russell-Sound On Sound lp (JW Music Library)

    Enoch Light Presents Patterns In Sound Vol.5


    can anyone shed anymore light on the KPM's I listed? I also bought the JW Music Library lp on a whim, never heard of the label before and wasn't sure if it's in the same league as KPM, DeWolfe, etc.
