  • UK Charity / Boot Common yet Essential finds

    OK there are certain records that turn up week and week out at Car Books and Charity Shops in the UK that are worth picking up here are some I can think of from the top of my head feel free to add

    * Jack Jones In Person at the sands Las Vegas - about 1/3 of the tracks on this LP are funky vocal lounge, the rest are swinging crooners

    * Duke Grant plays Hammond Gold - Well documented here for the funky "Go!"

    *Easy Listening (Polydor Gatefold) - Quite a good lounge comp allthough it doesn't look like it would be

    * Nonstop Pepsi Party - Denny Wright and The Hustlers - Shout about Pepsi

    * Themes for Superheroes - Geoff Love and His Orch - Very funky especially Wonderwoman

    I could go on but I will give others a chance to add...

    Well, I'm still looking for that one, and I've never seen the pepsi one, so I better pay more attention

        In Sydney at least the Cleo Laine one with 'Night Owl' is every-damn-where as is Shirley Bassey's 'Something'. Oh, and the Mauriat album with 'Etude in rhythm and blues' on it.

        Having said that I probably won't see any copies of them again.

              weird...I've never seen this record, I have no idea what it is. and I have spent some tiime in charity shops over the years.

              I'd add:

              Geoff Love with 'Three Days of the Condor'
              the obvious James Lasts of course
              We know when a mate buys it for you too.

                  Englands Top 12 Hits....The one with Double Barrel on it....alot of people sleep on this one (could actually be because of the cover which has what can only be described as someones fortyfive year old auntie dressed in teeniebopper swinging London gear with cringingly short skirt YUK ) Dave and Ansil probably never envisioned the track with a kick ass bongo beat but it works

                  I always find this Lp in the Yorkshire region but nowhere else...maybe it's a regional thing? Wonder why?

                  I once had this fantasy that if you went to Charity shops that were near the Yorkshire Television studio they'd be full of racks and racks of Hanged Man Lps....JUST IMAGINE
                  Country be dyin like poor people do
                  Hospitals be closing...doors to me and you (Lopazz - Blood)

                  And here's some other stuff that i get up to...

                    it's a totally rubbish looking thing on Chevron from '79...............but that version of 'Can't Get Enough.......' is marvelous.........

                          you Brits are lucky, all these common things you see a couple times a week are things I only see on Ebay with $10 shipping added on.

                          anybody got a few spare Pesi & Geoff Love Superhero LP's to donate to a deserving lover of UK funky lounge cheese?

                            For the true vinyl nerd who has to have even the easiest to get tracks on rare formats: all the above were issued on 45s (well, Shirley's 'light my fire' - not seen 'Spinning Wheel...yet!).
                            If you aint got the 7, you just aint got it at all

                            By the way, I live in Yorkshire and found 6 sealed Hanged Man's mid 90s in Scope and 2 more at a market.
