      Where do you live Mr Mack - I think I'm moving!

      Best thing I found was a spare 'Bang on a Drum'
      "..hole...road...middle thereof"

            One of those days when I spent only a few quid, thought it would be all pretty poor but turned out not bad for pence.

            1) Gladys Knight & the Pips-I Feel A Song
            Common LP and never got round to getting it before but worth 50p.

            2) Johnny Johnson and the Bandwagon (Direction) Nice enough soul for cheap.

            3) Madelaine-Who Is She (UA) Don't be put off by the picture on the cover! Great versions of Who Is She And What Is She To You and Don't It Drive You Crazy. LP arrangements by Johnny Pate. Really glad I "risked" 50p on this.

            4) Anne Murray-Talk It Over In the Morning (Capitol) Credible version of Night Owl

            5) The Original Sanny Denny (Mooncrest) thought this would be in the dreaded price guide and is, so worth 50p.

            6) Phoebe Snow-S/T (A&M) Noticed Bob James on keyboards so worth a punt. It is what it is. Joni Mitchell in her jazzy moments?

            7) Discopedia Vol 3-Mirror Image (Pickwick) Nice version of Got To Be Real, fairly true to the original.

            8) The Shocking Blue-S/T (Colossus) Nice late 60's pop/psyche/prog? reminds me of Driscol/Auger stuff (well Venus has always reminded me of them anyway&#33

                  Well, I picked up a Maple veneer worktop for the kitchen for £20, which made me happy!
                  Don't call it a comeback... H, N, and the number 7.
                  Ok, it's a bit of a comeback, I suppose...

                      I had one of those days on Saturday.  

                      After around 4 hours searching, aside from very dusty fingers & coat, the only remotely of any interest I came away with, was a copy of Steady B's 'What's My Name/Don't Disturb This Groove' 12".

                      Ok it was a nice US OG promo in NM condition at reasonable price & I do not have it in my collection, but still...

             cheered myself up by buying myself a minty new pair of Etnies.  A man can never have enough trainers IMHO

                        Here's what I dug out of a smelly second hand store in Gran Canaria:
                        LPS: ALice Babs - 67
                        Merit Hemmingson - Huvva!
                        Gimmicks - Simsalabim
                        45s Sabu Martinez trio - Jag vill tro (Mallwax)
                        Bobby Patterson - My Babys Coming Back to me (yellow vinyl promo)
                        Nina Lizell/ Lee Hazlewood - Hey Cowboy
                        Monica Zetterlund - EP with Speak Low.
                        Wess - Whiter Shade of Pale
                        Dyke and the Blazers- Runaway People.
                        Loads more Nina Lizell stuff she did with Giorgio Moroder, a German schlager version of Fio Maravilha, some Swedish Radio Jazz Band eps, some moogy/porno soundtrack singles, A French version of Watermelon Man, Lill Lindfors singles...
                        Does anyone know if any of the stuff Bjorn, Benny and the Abba girls did before they were famous is a. any good, or b. rare. Theres still a load of that in there. And theres nowhere else to find records on this island.

                          Eric B - I know You Got Soul 7 inch with acapella mix on the b side.

                          Pretty restrained or pretty poor pickings depending on what way you look at it.
                          Enthusiastic vagueness passes for scholarship in the twilight world of the disc-jockey.

                          John Peel

                            Didnae even manage to make it to the boot sales - editing a naff short film this weekend !

                            Ahh well. At least I can lay a claim to having a life outside buying crap records. Or perhaps not. Recently dropped $$$ on obscure Quebecois junk. . .some of which looks interesting and has arrived today.

                            Also a rerelease of Morricone's reputedly great "Svegliati E Uccide" and another rerelease, "Faccia a Faccia", a '67 western.

                            However given that I've scored a copy of that Bernt Staf album and Cross & The Switchblade from the same local charity shop in the past month I think I've probably used up this month's luck ration anyway.

                            So next week it'll be back to sifting through heaps of Liberace and Mrs Mills LP's then. . .

                              Last week I found a Thijs van Leer lp with the track "street rondo" and today I found Chocolate Milk "action speaks louder than words" lp.

                              Nice finds when everything seems to have dried up!
