  • Recent charity finds

    Here is a list of stuff that I've picked up recently from charity shops.
    Not many BIG finds but, plenty to make me smile...

    Best of Hugo Montenegro

    Happy Monsters, kiddie record of James Brown-a-like funk songs with random noises honked and squeaked all over the top of it, rather marvellous

    La garza negra y de hierro by Chelique Sarabia, Venezuelan moog psyche folk... Possibly sponsored by some industrial corporation...

    Two Alan Haven LP's

    From Russia with love / the pink panther by Richard Lindsey Orch,
    cheesecake cover

    'Dance dance dance' on Polymax, no artist but a groovy song called 'green light'

    The Hifi antics of Meri Ellen & her Cohorts guest star Don Elliot

    Honeymoon in Manhattan New world Orch, on alshire

    The very merry macs sing very merry melodies

    Accordion showcase by Jack Emblow

    Hang on with The Asters, comedy ditties by the likes of Bill Oddie, Michael Bentine, Dick Emery, Larry Grayson etc

    Andrew Brasseur - The fantastic organ

    The sex life of the primate - Shelley Berman

    Rhythm of resistance, music from black South africa 1978

    Couple of power pop records that I'm liking much more than I thought I would, OXO s/t great song called 'Whirly girl' and The Kings 'are here', great whole album, but like the song 'partyitis ' the best.

    Sergio Mendes 77 'in concert' Thanks whoever mentioned this in the VV forum

    Strings for pleasure play best of Dylan

    Ray Charles singers command performances vol II

    The Black Abbots, private pressing rock covers band live in cabaret, featuring one Russ Abbot on Drums and Percussion !!!!????

    Test pressing of Richard Digance record RCA TRA 277

    Another record that has the feel of a test pressing by a band called 'Backdoor' record label is 'Apple corps Ltd. 3 Saville road, London, custom recording'.

    Is this some lost Beatles connection? Clues anyone? Can anyone tell me ANYTHING about 'Backdoor'?, or Richard Digance for that matter... And are there other albums by The Kings worth finding?

    These didn't happen in one day, or one shop or anything, but probably over the space of 10 days - 2 weeks. With a family Easter the booters were off limits for me.

          That's a nice score for old EH!

          I found a few bits in the Chazzers this weekend too

          First shop produced a spare of 'Voodoo Party' (first one in a good while) and a copy of Tom Jones 'Looking Out My Window' in the same crate!
          Then a spare of 'Black Mikado', a Ray Barretto LP and one of them Jazz play along efforts in another charity. On my final stop I got Made in Sweden - 'Mad River', a Johnny Pearson LP on Rampage which I had never seen before (sadly 'tis poo - anyone want it?) and a weird Swedish Radio anniversary comp - the 'Progressive Rock' volume - rather good.
          Then out of proper shops I got Prince Far I - Cry Tuff Dub Chapter3, It's a Beautiful Day - Today and Nucleus - Solar Plexus.



          Oooh and a double LP called 'The Perfumed Garden' which is a narration of the erotic masterpiece (it says) - purely for 'mix-tape' purposes you understand.....

              Hmmm, this one is interesting, check out this site :-

              Apple Discography

              Its pretty good, no mention of any band called backdoor ever recording for Apple, so this is either a hoax, a band that never released anything or a recording that slipped out the backdoor (HO HO!). Whatever, its unusual and it appeals to Beatle collectors who as we know have too much money. Whats it sound like ?

                Funny that - I usually do a charidee mini dig once every blue moon and scored these two as well.

                I also got my grubbies on the Patsy LP by Patsy Gallant featuring Te Caliente, and the Boots Randolph LP featuring a killer version of Hi Heel Sneakers. Very nice small findage and still change from a fiver for a bag o'chips and cherry coke.

                    Rhythm of resistance, music from black South africa 1978

                    Another record that has the feel of a test pressing by a band called 'Backdoor' record label is 'Apple corps Ltd. 3 Saville road, London, custom recording'.

                    Rhythm Of Resistance..........is this a compilation from 1978 or a later lp with music from 1978......?

                    The Backdoor lp sounds promising...........they were a kinda leftfield experimental jazz trio......Ron Aspery,Tony Hicks and Colin Hodgkinson.........they recorded two albums..........the first was a private pressing and it's quite rare........then this lp was reissued on WB then later on they recorded another lp for WB............
                    both the WB lps are common and not worth more than around a tenner........but the first private press is worth an awful lot more and it's proper scarce...........dunno which one you've got there though......!?

                      'Sur Une Nappe De Restaurant'. Which means 'on the tablecloth in the restaurant' or somesuch, I believe.
                      You freeking scientologists are all the same, quible, dribble and then demand ice creams. Ohhhhhhhhhhh.

                          SEX LIFE OF PRIMATES - Shelley Berman is a pretty funny record. He also wrote a short book in a similar vein.

                          The Perfumed Garden. Is that the aussie lp with a nekkid lady on the front? if so, it was recorded in South Australia, me thinks. I have been trying to track down the people behind this release to get their story.

                          Cheers,
                          David S.
                          God bless Fatso.

                            There's an early 70's band called 'Back Door' - they were a jazz-rock outfit from somewhere in the North. Their records were released on Warners, though I think the first one was originally on a small local label, possibly their own. If this is the same band, it could have been recorded as a demo for publishing or something....is it an acetate?

                              aaarrrgh...i've never seen the nucleus - solar plexus lp! but i've found some stuff that made me (at least a bit) feel allright. great charity shop by the way in zurich altstetten. cheap and well sorted! the great r.p.m. soundtrack, gal costa's india lp, the james last's hair lp, o lucky man o.s.t., and a great lp of a swiss musician called polo hofer, playing a strange psych-rock-dub song about george orwells 1984. it even ends up in a nice ironic "apocalypso" tropical feeling part! that made me smile again
