  • February Finds

      Yet more proof that the LP turns up for a £1 (as discussed in a post a week or two ago) fairly often but not for me

      Can't be bothered to list everything but a few bits for 50p/£1.00.


      1) PC Kent-S/T
      2) The Youngbloods-Sunlight
      3) Barney Kessel-Kessels Kit (notice the common link with these 3? All on RCA in same box so where was my Toomorrow LP???)
      4) Dave Dee, Dozy etc-If Music Be The Food.... (nice freakbeaty tune on this, well to my ears anyway)
      5) Couple of Cilla Black's from 1970 (Come on, you'd get them too?)
      6) Victor Silvester-Up Up and Away (Nice version of Ironside but you probably all know this already?)
      7) Soul Generation-Beyond Body and Soul (What a great picture on the reverse of sleeve "Pimpin' Ain't Easy"!) Shame it sounds like Main Ingredient, Stylistics,etc, etc.

      45's 10p each

      1) Dennis Coffey-Getting It On 1975
      2) Oliver Sain-The Double Bump
      "Don't get involved in the f**kin' chat pages. It's just full of arseholes talkin' sh*te non-stop"

        -JAZZ ORKESTAR RADIO-TELEVIZIJE BEOGRAD (1948-1978)"Jazz Orkestar RTB Sa Gostima" - went three times over max limit for an lp on this one only to find it's getting re-ished!

          I like this... "hey, lets release getting it on again with a huge break at the beginning!". Noice.
