  • New Orleans Digging - 45 help needed!!

    Just got back this morning from a week in New Orleans at a mate wedding and digging for records.

    Had a great time and New Orleans is a cool perty town. I was however, considering its musical heritage, a little disappointed with the record stores. having said this I still managed to come home with a bag of records.

    Gotta say a big thank you to Ari who is a local and a Soulstrutter who really went out of his way to show me around. I really appreciate it!!

    If anyone has any info on any of these particularly the 45's then let me know (value, history, etc)

    LP's

    Managed to trade around 20 Vulture classics (inc Big Jim H's!!) for the the following three LP's, the rest were bought around town.

    Manu Dibango - Kusini - Great rare private press soundtrack - double
    The Meters - Struttin
    The Meters - Look-Ka Py Py

    Curtis Amy - Mustang - Really solid funky jazz LP from start to finish - double
    Billy Taylor - OK Billy - One cool funk track on here - double
    Al Hirt - Soul in the Horn - De la Soul Sample plus othe bits - double
    Luis Gasca - Collage - Funky latin Jazz
    Bobby Hutcherson - Montara - Another great funky latin LP
    101 Strings - Sounds of Today - Psych sitar tracks ala Animated Egg - double
    Soundtrack - The Mad Adventures of Rabbi Jacob - Found 2 sealed copies - double
    Manolo Gas - A Todo Gas - Spanish funker, his best LP, sealed - double
    Guerra 78 - Soul Makossa - Funky latin LP

    Found 4 sealed copies of a Guatemalan psych latin funk LP that is going to be huge. Just got to do some research first.

    45's (Help Needed) - Most of these were found deep in the hood in the attic of an old record store. This place has probably had tons of guys looking through it but still has loads of goodies. I looked at around a 20th of the stock. Most are unplayed stock copies. $6 each.

    Archie Bell and the Drells - Tighten UP - Atlantic
    Marie Franklin - You Ain't Changed - Maverick
    The Meters - Look-ka Py Py - Josie
    The Nite Liners - Afro Strut - RCA
    Alvin Thomas - The Roach - Great Southern
    The Corner Boys - Gang War / Take it Easy Soul Brother - Neptune

    Not sure what kind of info you're looking for with the 45's, but there isn't anything rare in that list if that's what you mean.

    $6 a pop is a fair enough price for 'em. Pick of the bunch for me would be the Marie Franklin on Maverick.

      And $6 is a very decent price for 'Woman Of The Ghetto', I'd be happy with that. What's the Roy Budd 45 like?
      You freeking scientologists are all the same, quible, dribble and then demand ice creams. Ohhhhhhhhhhh.

          It wouldn't surprise me if you did. Soul Jazz have never seemed to have much of an idea when it comes to pricing 45's.

            Agreed - I love that track... "you ain't chaaaaaaaaaanged... you ain't changed a bit"
            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.
