    No doubt about it the finds (mostly e-digs) that have given me the most pleasure are the mid 80’s hip hop joints I first heard John Peel/mike Allen playing back in the days.

    Mr Rhymes/Stop Breakin
    Grand Master Fresh/is this the American dream.
    Mc New York/ Good Morning Mr Phelps.
    C.M. Dance/Your off the hook


    The list goes on really.

    I’m also fond of some of the Japanese stuff that I bought (with the help of Sheep) but am also disappointed that as soon as I started to get a feel and some information on the stuff it was time to come home. I never even scratched the surface.

      I suspect at the mo' its Godbluff by Van Der graff Generator.
      Enthusiastic vagueness passes for scholarship in the twilight world of the disc-jockey.

        have had a good year for crossing a few grails off the list this year, including....

        komeda "cul de sac" (polydor 7")
        giuliano sorgini "living dead at manchester morgue" (beat lp)
        ennio morricone "citta violenta" (japanese rca lp)

        plus the blossom dearie "london in the rain" for 2 quid (sorry to mention prices!) was a nice find!

          the one that gave most pleasure has been a relatively easy/cheap one - Barbara Randolph - Can I Get A Witness... you know there's always a few tunes that you just keep missing?

          also some easy to find late 70s and 80s 12"s - gogo, electro, 80s funk etc. bit bored of trying to find the same old holy grail early 70s bits as everyone else.

            One of those questions that blanks the mind...

            For me this year's been about getting hold of good LP tracks on 45 and picking up a few perennial funk wants for a reasonable price. And expanding my horizons - opening my ears to tunes from years well outside the '68-'73 safety zone. And Priscilla Price.
            You freeking scientologists are all the same, quible, dribble and then demand ice creams. Ohhhhhhhhhhh.

              My favourite record this year is a reissue! "Black Land Of The Nile" by MaseQua Myers & Jami Ayinde on Jazzman is superb.

              Favourite found record is the 'Goda Goda' kids soundtrack.

                    How rare?

                    The Three Out - Move Lp

                    Hey DJ Sheep.
                    I have a copy of this lp. What is this worth?

                      It used to be a $1000 record. Full stop. The taste of the Japanese jazz collector "scene" changed, alas so did the price. I would say $200-300 for a good copy these days. You never know though, some old school cat comes out the woodwork on ebay and BAM! $700!, $1000 or more!

                      peace.

                          The one record I have enjoyed the most this year is without a doubt a Clarence Carter 45 I bought in NYC this spring for two USD or less. It's on Ronn and has the superb track "what was I supposed to do" b/w "I'm so tired of explaining". So cheap and so good.

                            I think the actual find of the year would be Chango s/t. Spent years looking and when it finally turned up it was not expensive at all and pretty much as good as I'd hoped.

                            I've just been playing Godbluff once or twice a day for the last 2 weeks. Not sure why - probably it suits the bleak mid-winter weather I'm walking to work through. It wasn't a find in that I just bought it 'cos it was a potentially decent prog LP for €4 in a closing down sale 6 months ago.
