    'Two Generations' - Sid Phillips/The Simon Sound (Contour)
    I seem to be the only person who didn't have a copy of this - until now! Certainly lives up to expectations - I didn't know Pete Winslow did stuff like that!

    'The World Of Big Band Blues' - Ted Heath (Decca)
    Bit early (1959) but quite nice, some top musicians and arrangements by David Lindup and Ralph Dollimore.

    'Under Milk Wood' - Stan Tracey/Donald Houston (RCA)
    Proper straight ahead jaaaazzzz, with bits of Dylan Thomas thrown in - potentially interesting. One to be listened to all the way through, I think!

    Plus a huge pile of interesting CD-rs from a friend of mine which will take weeks to get throught properly - looking forward to it!

        Psychoses Suite lp (Conroy)
        Various-Paris Star Time (Roger Roger & His Orchestra, Les Trois Menestrels, Jaqueline Boyer & Hugues Aufray)---thought I found a bargain ($4) only to discover the lp is scratched to hell. that's the last time I buy a bargain lp without checking the records first

          As a matter of interest, is it worth putting this stuff on ebay? I'm not trying to be mean, just that personally I wouldn't bother picking most of these up unless they really were perfect originals (Neil Young, Byrds). What's your 'hit rate' selling this kind of LP?

          Personally, I managed two Woody Herman LPs from the early 70's, an Avon Cities LP I'd never seen before, the Moog Beatles LP, a decent Corries LP, Jacques Loussier 'Play Bach live at Champs-Elysees', two Cozy Powell 45s, the Baroque Jazz Ensemble 'Hits from 1722', and the Peter Sellers and Sophia Loren album.

                Cats, eh? Can&#39;t turn round here without at least one popping up and getting in the way, but then they do live here.

                As for finds, very chuffed to turn up a copy of John Dankworth&#39;s &#39;Zodiac Variations&#39; for a quid, and a few other spec bits, none of which have especially floated my boat. A couple of early 60s Pye Golden Guinea &#39;Twist...&#39; LPs (from the Muller stable, no less) are OK if you like that sort of thing, though...

                Also a nice 50s style mambo LP by Lucio Barbossa Group on Fonal, a sort of nice crooner/ska/calypso effort called &#39;Magic Style&#39; by Pat Rolle (on Tropical Recording Co, signed) and a sonically abysmal but very beautifully sleeved &#39;Hammond Dance Party&#39; by Lars Tiselius With Rhythm Group on Joy.

                Here&#39;s looking to the weather bringing a few hardy and vinyl laden souls out to the booter tomorrow&#33;

                  it&#39;s a tortie - but our cat (also tortie) doesn&#39;t like it - am waiting for the RSPCA to come and pick it up - some bastard appears to have dumped it in a cardboard box with some food in a hedge outside my local pub



                  btw, would love a chocolate-point siamese

                    Is that the one that&#39;s got a version of Saints Go Marching In that cunningly replaces &#39;marching&#39; with &#39;twisting&#39;? If so I&#39;ve got it and love it&#33; Is there more than one?

                      Today I visited a few spots I hadn&#39;t been to in a long while, and didn&#39;t turn up much, although everything was cheap. Best of the bunch is

                      Bossa Rio - Alegria&#33; (Blue Thumb)
                      Not as smooth as Sergio &amp; his crew, but nice one. Really like the 2nd track - Zazueira.

                      Norman Harris - The Harris Machine (Philadephia Intl)
                      In Good Faith is the standout track. Nice.

                      On the 45 front, best finds last week were:

                      Young-Holt Unlimited - Who&#39;s Making Love (Brunswick)
                      These guys just amaze me again and again.

                      Howlin&#39; Wolf - Evil (Cadet Concept)
                      I think the album cut is better, but great track.

                      Sonny Stitt - Soul Shack (Prestige)
                      love that mod jazz sound. And on perhaps my favorite label.

                      Bobbi Humphrey - Harlem River Drive (Blue Note)
                      Really feeling this one....so goood.

                      Hector and the Eastmen - Switch Me (Tune-kel)
                      nice r&#39;n&#39;b garage instrumental.

                      OK, I also managed to squeeze a few dollars out of my record budget for a book, so I&#39;m off to read......

                        John, you&#39;re right, I wouldn&#39;t have bought these if they weren&#39;t mint or close to. I tend to stick lots of stuff on Ebay that I found for a quid or less at &#036;9.99 then count on shifting a few items. Sometimes works, someimes doesn&#39;t. It&#39;s usually a case of being patient, someone, somewhere usually wants what you&#39;ve got.

                          John - are there good funky ones? I&#39;ve picked up a couple and they&#39;ve always been a bit &#39;straight ahead&#39; for me - I&#39;ve got one at the moment - sleeve has the arse end of an occupied pair of jeans on the cover - yours gratis if you want it.

                          As for finds - pretty sparse - edited highlights are:

                          Johnny Pearson - Playgirl (double)
                          Tudor Lodge - S/T (actually quite nice)
                          Wattstax
                          Albert King - I Wanna get Funky
                          Poor Boys - Pockets Full of Love (or summat)
                          Neu - Black Forest Gataeux (SP?)

                          and Duke Grant - Hammond Gold (first one in the wilds of Scotland for AGES since me and Divine hoovered them all up - now an official breakbeat raer )
                          "..hole...road...middle thereof"

                              That&#39;s the one: Fats &amp; The Chessmen, &#39;Twistin&#39; The Oldies&#39; has the &#39;Saints&#39; on it, the other one I picked up&#39;s from the year before (1961 - &#39;oldies&#39; is 1962) and is just called &#39;let&#39;s do the twist&#39;. Maybe I should give &#39;em another listen...

                              As for this morning, an LP called &#39;Contrasts&#39; by Julie Rogers (might be good, might be shite...) and a little clutch of 45s, also on spec: Armada Orchestra, Dynamic Corvettes, Salsoul Orchestra, Beatles (&#39;Rain&#39 and &#39;Caine&#39;s Theme&#39; &#39;Kung Fu&#39; TV single.
