Yes, so sunny yesterday that I decided to down tools & catch a few rays, but instead ended up in various charities rummaging for records (as usual). A quirky but nice little haul:

Melina Mercouri/Manos Hadjidakis: Jamais Le Dimanche (Barclay 10&quot

Byron Lee & The dragonaires: Going Places (Dynamic)

Peter Thomas: Sounds in Super Stereo (Polydor)

Nico: Chelsea Girl (MGM)

Bob Crewe Generation: Music To Watch Girls By (Dynovoice)

Tim Hollier: Sky Sail (Phillips - lovely 1971 folk/psych LP produced & arranged by John Cameron...anyone know anything about this?)

Oscar Peterson: Tracks (MPS) [trade - why is this the only MPS record I ever seem to find??]

Jacques Olivieri: La Guitare De Jacques Olivieri (Odeon) [trade]

Various: Pye Quadrophonic Sampler (Pye - inc Dennis Lopez 'Spinning Wheel&#39 [trade]

Ann Margret: En Busca Del Amor (RCA - thought I'd got an obscuro soundtrack here, but actually Spanish issue of 'The Pleasure Seekers'...which I already have. Doh&#33 [trade]

Mike Timoney: Astounding Sound Of The Cordovox (Contour) [trade]

Various: It's Christmas In Motown (Sounds Superb) [trade]

Moody Blues: On The Threshold Of A Dream (Deram) [trade]

George Shearing/Marian McPartland: Alone Together (Concord Jazz) [trade]

Also a very nice 45 of Stan Getz's 'Jazz Theme To Doctor Kildare' with 'Desafinado' on the flip...

Not a bad hour's rummaging, altogether...but no nearer a tan than when I started. Oh well...
