  • Freebies (Slight Return)

    Gradually clearing the top of the Expedit, so that I can lazily shove some other shite up there!

    Most of you are familiar with the 'rules'. But I'll give a quick run through anyway.

    * Please indicate your choices within the thread, so that folk have an idea what's gone.

    * You're just paying for a mailer (I've just ordered some new ones) and whatever Royal Mail decides to leech from you

    * There may be one or two LPs that are less than excellent condition. But they FREE OF CHARGE! Always makes my arse laugh when someone PMs me to ask about the condition of summat they're not paying for.

    * I've no beef with overseas folk, so feel free to get in touch. The reason I've preferred to limit it to UK only in the past is that the postage fees have become (in my view) prohibitive and, on occasion, our chums on the mainland understandably back out when they realise how much it will cost to receive some charity shop fodder (the downside is that this deprives a UK bod of a shot at same items).

    * Wait until the dust settles and I'll get in touch to let you know what to Paypal me.


    So, here goes:

    Let's start with an array of canon fodder.....














    Some film-y stuff:




    "It's exotic!":






    Some 12"s:



    ('Han Do Jin', 'Dead By Dawn', Manu Dibango 'Sun Explosion' / 'Big Blow' - slight edge warp, but plays fine and Harry Thumann 'Underwater')


    Last oddments:



    (expect some crackle on the Donovan covers LP)




    (expect a little crackle on the Lulu LP)

    Thanks Ben AGAIN!

    Could I go for Stereo Drums, Love Is Blue & the Cha Cha Cha one and Enoch Light. [In that order of desire if any other plussers want in some]

        Super Stereo Sound and Gimme Dat Ding please
        Everyone tear down your own little wall
        That keeps you from being a part of it all
        Because you've got to be one with the one and all
        You've just got to be close to it all

              Ben, I'd love the Depth Charge "Han Do Jin" twelve please...
              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'd be interested in the Pesme I Igre Naroda Jugoslavije, Hana a Petr Ulrychovi & Vic Lewis - Boy In The Saffron Robe.

                      Absolutely beautiful orchestral LP. John Cameron on arrangement duties and the list of session players on it is a real Who's Who of late 60s UK talent. Harold McNair on flute if I recall?

                        Thanks Ben, the parcel arrived safe and sound yesterday and I'm chuffed to bits! What an amazing parcel of freebies!

                        I agree with Ian, The Boy In The Saffron Robe is a beautiful album. Yes, Harold McNair on flute; John Cameron on arranging and producing duty. The version of 'Lord Of The Reedy River' is something special indeed.

                        The Yugoslavian album evokes a strange sense of nostalgia for a country no longer on the map. Funny, I don't think I've had any Yugoslavian vinyl before. It is right on target for where my vagrant taste has wandered off to. A fine variety of songs, and kicks off with a wonderful instrumental, 'Kolo Iz Obrenovca', with some brilliant violin and accordion playing; a close cousin to the Romanian instrumental virtuoso pieces that I love.

                        Hanr A Petr Ulrychovi is poppy with a bit of brass and some funky-jazzy moves / cimbalon breaks. Needs a few more plays to see what sticks!

                              I'm not Jesus Christ. I've come to accept that now.

                              No problem though mate, we aim to please.

                              Funny (peculiar) that you should refer to Yugoslavia, I've just (re)watched 'Death of Yugoslavia' on YouTube. Amazing documentary that should be mandatory viewing (and shit scary).

                              And it's all so sadly prescient when you look at Ukraine.

                              Ben's recommended viewing of the week really.
