        If you're looking for a pristine copy then this isn't the one for you. The vinyl looks like someone has polished their brickwork with it and the label has been ruined by some fool with a pen.

          ... I tried to give record hunting a rest this weekend and enjoyed a bit of a trek around London enjoying the sights, sounds (and smells) of the Big City...

          .. but as I walked and perused the sights, my computer conspired to serve up Beau Dollar "Who Knows Where The Soul Trees Grow" 45 on King for a fiver. Nice.

            Err, Sie... Sorry to disappoint you, I think you'll find you've got "Where The Soul Trees Grow" on both sides.

            The weekend has been pretty good to me, although only one was found in the wild. From record fair, trades, shops, carboot and the net:

            Klaus Doldinger - Doldinger (with Sitar Beat and other Paul Nero goodness)
            Nucleus - Alley Cat
            The Chequers - Check Us Out (cheers Lee!)
            Hymns A Swingin'
            unknown - Egg Roll (test pressing 45, next best thing to the acetate!)
            Kay Robinson - The Lord Will Make A Way Somehow (King 45 - JB production)
            DJ Format - Rap Machine 12"
            Six Organs Of Admittance - School Of The Flower
            Linda Hoyle - Pieces Of Me (dodgy re-issue)
            John Cale & Terry Riley - Church Of Anthrax (50p from the carboot)
            Manu Dibango - Soul Makossa LP
            Pete Winslow - Girl On The Testcard LP

                  Schoolboy error... Still, I probably won the 'wrong' Vernon Garrett.

                  And I'm afraid I'll have to bail on tonight Sie, far too much to do before Thursday.

                      I finally got round to buying my first records of the year this weekend - it's got to get better from now on.

                      'The Crazy World Of Arthur Brown' S/T - Polydor. Had to get it for the cover alone. Classic! I reckon he's responsible for the heavy metal falsetto as perfected by Deep Purple et al.

                      Theo Bickel 'A New Day' - Reprise. Another impulse purchase for the cover. I'm a sucker for infra red photos. Some Donovan and Beatles covers done rather politely - he's an actor/singer and apparantly co- founded the Newport Jazz Festival and I was hoping he'd go off on some Richard Harris style histrionics but alas ... no.

                      Sergio Mendez & Brasil 66 'Crystal Illusions' and 'Fool On The Hill' - A&M.

                      Peddlers 'Three In A Cell' - CBS. Always pick up a copy.

                      Nilsson 'The Point' - RCA. Nice little soundtrack to a cartoon about a boy with a flat head in a land full of pointy headded people.
                      Back to Neuuuuuuuuuu!

                        brilliant record, a childhood fave... make sure you pick up a copy with the comic book still inside though

                        anyone seen the film?

                            Spent the afternoon trawling the charities in the Poole area whilst my fiance went to a wedding fair with her sister and mother. Didn't turn up much, just a few (mostly crappy) Swedish folk LPs, but also a copy of a Swedish release of Abba's Greatest Hits - bought purely for the unusual (for Abba) cover art(and the fact that it was only 50 pence)!!!

                              Purely for that? Abba is excellent Swedish popmusic with great production and incredibly catchy tunes. yeah there are a couple of dull tracks, but every Abba album has at least some worthwhile tracks. I picked up all their LPs for less than a £ and don't regret it one bit.
                              And... keep in mind that I'm from Sweden where we were (and still are though not as frequent) bombarded by som much ABBA I near threw up during my youth.
                              or maybe...
                              i'm just overenthusiastic about finally giving in this summer and picking all those records up for cheap and discovering that they weren't as horrible as i remembered...
