    newly inspired by this forum I got my arse out the door to try to find some decent records. 10 quid later i had about 20 7's in my mitts. they all looked promising and 5 of them i really quite like:

    Linda Christine "Send Me No More Letters" - 1970 on Dutch label (?) Purple Eye. building folky pop with nice drums (no real breaks though). similar to Julie Covington.

    Neville Whitmill "That's Why" -1973 on South African label Gallo. funky soulish thing again with tight drums.

    Buzz "Ray Of Sunshine" - 1972 on Australian label Interfusion. i love this one, rousing sunshine pop thing , makes me very happy.

    Axis "Someone" - 1972 on Italian label Riviera (looks like something to do with Barclay) really nice vocal based thing.

    The Elephants - "SOS for the Beat" Telefunken, fast surf sounding psychish thing.

    oh, and a 1981 kraftwerk/moroder sounding thing by Analysis or something. and a swedish version of The Candyman Can called Slaraffendlan.

    anyone know anything about these?

    You sure 'bout Swedish and Slaraffendlan???
    Because that word is complete nonsense in Swedish - I can't even imagine what it could be.....

      i thought all words were nonsense in Swedish

      i'm probably wrong, i'll check again tonight.
      all i know is it is a cover of that song from Willy Wonka and it has plenty of F's and L's

        Just taken delivery of...

        "The Detroit City Limits play Ninety eight cents plus tax and other hits" LP

        and looking foreward to giving it a listen. The title tune is an awsome funky R&B Intrumental Groover.

          Wow! Never thought there was an LP of D.C.L, I've been happy with the old little 45 for many years now...

          ... some of the "Ken Dodds" ( ) who post up here will have it and love it too, I'm sure...
          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.

                slaraffendlan!! could be dutch!..sometimes the dutch language is a bit closed (nearly same stupid) to swiss! it's not easy to translate it but i think that means something like: "land of abundance" oooh
                can you explain to me what this word means?

                      I wanna know: are the rest of the tunes as good as the ninety eight cents plus tax 45? Please give us an update when you give the LP a spin. Thanks.

                        the single's definitely the best track on there - I've had the album for many years, largely because I couldn't find a 45 when I got it....
                        We know when a mate buys it for you too.

                          Yupp 99 cents is head and shoulders above everything else on the LP. Most of it is extremely pedestrian except for the covers of Think and "Dance to the Music" which are both groovers
