  • Freebies from Japan

    OK, my turn to do some freebies. Only 10 LPs this time, but I'll be bringing these to the UK, when I come in early September so you can expect delivery mid September.

    * Minimum of 50 posts before you can get involved - keep those lurkers out!
    * UK addresses only this time. I'm not going to waste my holiday faffing around with international orders.
    * Make your dibbses known in the thread and please try to read who else has claimed stuff. To start with, since there are only 10 LPs, let's say max of 3 LPs per person.
    * After a few day I'll get back to you. I've got enough recycled mailers to just keep it to the cost of postage only (so for the most part, you're looking at £3.00 for up to 3 albums).
    * As others do, I'll ask for Paypal via 'Gift' option, so be sure you have a Paypal account.

    I've tried to keep this Japanese themed, since I'm presuming that these are harder to find elsewhere. So here we go:

    1. Various - King Sampler (1967) promo

    A real hotch-potch of Japanese 60s pop including The Peanuts, The Beavers, some Western pop, including Wishful Thinking, Rolling Stones, Flowerpot Men, Ray Charles and some soundtrack stuff.

    2. Kimihiro Nagao - Sentimental Trumpet Mood (196?)

    Mood trumpet instrumentals.

    3. Various - King Sampler (1968) promo

    Another King sampler, all Japanese artists this time. Pinky & Killers, The Bunnies, Yukari Ito, The Sharp Hawks, Leo Beats etc

    4. Kitaro - Utopia 12" picture disc


    5. Tatsuro Yamashita ‎– On The Street Corner 2

    Doo Wop, soul singer. Was very popular in Japan. Someone on vg+ will know more than I do.

    6. Holiday in Taiwan LP

    Selection of popular Taiwanese folk and love songs. Has some narration between the songs but the songs are pretty good.

    7. Quinteto Dalmar - Columbia de Oro (1978)

    Columbian vocal quintet plus guitar. Sounds a bit operatic, a bit latin, very traditional. Titles like El Limonar and Besame Morenita.

    8. Mahina Stars - Stereo Hi-light (1964)
    [IMG]https://i.imgsafe.org/2851a521fb.jpg
    Real old time Japanese singing kayoukyoku stuff. Needs a good clean as the inner sleeve has left a deposit on the record.

    9. Antonio Tsuruoka, Latin Amigos, Johya Masubuchi & His Afro Amigos ‎– Latin Guitar (1967)

    Latin guitar instrumentals: Besame Mucho, Mambo No. 5, Tabu, La Malaguena, Cachito etc

    10. Finger 5 ‎– Second Album (1974)

    Imaginatively titled LP by Jackson 5 wanabees. Covers of Steppin' Stone, Day Dream Believer, Breaking Up is Hard To Do etc

    Hope there's something of interest to some of you.

                        OK, you have until the end of Friday the 2nd to respond to this thread, and do the paypal/address thing. After that I go into full headless chicken, throwing stuff around and panic present buying mode and I won't have any more time to spend on this. Almost everyone has sorted their business. Any latecomers, it's your last chance.

                          Folks

                          If anyone knows Lord Thames directly, could they tell him to come here and PM me his details and paypal me or he won't be getting no Sentimental Trumpets. I leave soon!

                            I don't have any contact with Lord Thames but if you don't hear from him put it in my package then he can contact me and I'll forward it on.

                              Or mine if you haven't posted them yet, whichever is the simplest/cheaper/easier option.
