      ARGH!
      Nothing but eBay "finds" for me... Foetus Ache was a very nice one though (if pricey) -can't wait til I have it in my hands...

      I hate this - working weekends now that spring is finally here!

      No time to go to all the fleamarkets... I should have thought twice about helping my colleague go raving in Amsterdam... now I have to work two weekends in a row!!
      But I'm gonna demand he at least covers for my next Sunday since I'm covering for him right now...

        Found a copy of the Funk45 reissue 'tra la la la' been looking for a copy of this for a while. what this record was doing at a car boot? you may be wondering.It was in a box of 70 odd 12" and 7" of varying styles of music from tecno to reggae and indie stuff. The woman sold me the whole box for a £5 (I would have paid this for the tra la la single). Turns out they were all or part of her sons record collection.

        Isnt there some kind of dj thing were you get sent records in bulk from distributers, I believe this is the reason for the varying styles of the records.

        Picked out a handfull Ill probably keep, an ill sell on the rest.


        Also picked up,

        a nice exotica LP called 'Taboo Vol.2' by Arthur Lyman. Nice moody easy listening with lots of tiger growls an intersting sounds. Features authentic shrunken heads on the cover too.

        An lp of morricone covers from from fist full of dollers etc.. Played by the hollywood soundmakers small kinda pop group sound but dissapointingly the drums a way too quiet or lacking for it to be of any worth.

        John windemere, his orchestra and singers Up, Up and away, (easy listening thing, gonna give it another listen

        raymond lefevre and his orchestra (no good)

        Picked up an intersting 'spoken word' 45 containing two soliloquies narrated by jackie gleeson.
        A side 'to a sleeping beauty'

        Side B 'apology at bedtime'

        Bizarre record for children with a narration from a father figure talking about watching them in thier bed at night while thier asleep, hmmm.

            This one's a bit of a curio - I've got no idea who John Windemere is, but I reckon one of the singers is Barbara Moore (I can spot her sibilants a mile off!) Probably a bit twee for most people, though I like the arrangements - it'd be better without the vocals.

              I've had this one, too - actually worth a listen, as it's kind of unintentionally rather creepy in an interesting way...

              As for the weekend, been watching the pennies (so no joy for the seller offering a battered Electric Prunes Lp for £40, but then there was never going to be, even if I'd ben trailing streams of banknotes, frankly) but instead a nice clean copy of Bobbie Gentry's 'Billie Joe/Mississippi Delta' 45 and the following mixed bag of LPs:

              Ornette Coleman: An Evening With Ornette Coleman (Polydor 2xLP box)
              Ramsey Lewis: Goin' Latin (Cadet)
              The Simon Sisters: Sing For Children (Columbia, 1973 issue of Carly & Lucy Simon's extremely nice folk LP originally put out in 1969)
              George Shearing: The Way We Are (MPS - the one with nice latin versions of Aquarius, Eleanor Rigby, Superstar & World Is A Ghetto on it)
              Cleo Laine: Portrait (Philips - cheers to whoever charted Night Owl off this, it's indeed very fine. Quite a listenable LP all round, in fact...)

              For the rest, it's doubles & trades...

              Joe Albany: Bird Lives! (Interplay) 1979 be bop jazz trio, produced by Toshiya Taenaka, nice set, bit straight up for my taste...
              Richard Austrian: Blue Danube Boogie (Different 12") 1978 moogy disco novelty version of the Strauss tune - the OTHER 2001 theme...
              Love Unlimited Orchestra: White Gold (20th Century) I know I ought to like Barry, but never quite feel able to commit, 'f y'know'wha'ah'mean...very funky cut called Satin Soul amid the cheese, though.
              Living Guitars: Hits For Guitars (RCA) easy guitar LP, OK versions of 'Quiller Memorandum' and 'Casino Royale' themes, and a cut called California Nights with a few touches of fuzz, but nothing to really get too excited about...
              Aimi MacDonald/Ronnie Carroll: Promises Promises (Fontana) Keith (Birds'n'Brass) Roberts produced Bacharach musical...probably not quite as exciting as that might sound, unfortunately.
              Lulu: The Most Of Lulu (MFP) the second one, with Johnny Harris production, Show Me, Gimme some Lovin', Mighty Quinn etc...thought I'd have another go, but no, still sounds too much like...well, Lulu.
              Dizzy Gillespie: Dizzy In Paris (Ember) nice enough but fairly inessential 70s issue of a live set from 1952/3...

              Only had a tenner to start, so after buying fags, a polystyrene cup of coffee and a couple of paperbacks, what was left over amounted to about the total cost, give or take change for a paper and pint of milk on the way home. No complaints from me, then

                do we say 'snap!' when this happens?

                maybe happy families, when between us we acquire a complete back catalogue of a weekend...

                        Just back from a couple of weeks in out of the way places which used to yield satisfying riches...and.....nowt much. Is it me that's getting indolent or is this getting harder?

                        Only two charity finds of any note whatsoever:

                        Nick Ingman "JCS"
                        Can "Tago Mago".......

                          definately getting harder to cop good gear in the wild......maybe the solution is to adjust your expectations.....for instance.....just found a crap 7inch from 1965....restaraunt band promo thing.....An Evening At Il Pirata.....an ep with a gatefold sleeve with pics of the restaraunt which appears to have been converted into half pub/half pirate ship......with half a ship sticking out of the main entrance of the pub.....extraordinary.
                          just completely unable to resist this sort of thing even though you know it's going to be crap before you even get it near a turntable...

                            Can I recommend a visit to the main VV site?

                            One solitary record from the wild for me this weekend. The Play School LP (yellow cover) with 'Fearless Fred's Amazing Animal Band'. It features a one bar break from Ollie The Octopus that Shadow used for 'Lonely Soul' off the first Unkle LP, (as spotted by Beardy Gav ).
                            You freeking scientologists are all the same, quible, dribble and then demand ice creams. Ohhhhhhhhhhh.
