  • Weekends Charity/Boot Finds

    Just going through my boot fair haul now this is the best of the bunch...

    * Arthur Fieldler and The boston Pops plays the beatles (over the top orchestral arrangements of beatles hits, run of the mill but good

    * Peter Nero - Piano Magic (all pretty good stand out track is I am the same guy (soulful Strut)) good instro piano slightly beat/funky.

    * Elvis Sings from his movies - plus TWO recent hits (Camden, guitar man and Big Boss man are quite good but the kings comedy version of "Old Macdonald" is ace big band groovy with lines like "with a moo moo here and a moo moo there and when those cows got out of line, Hamburber Medium Rare")

    Roger Coulam - Hammond Stero sounds...to sploil you (best dodgy Hammond Hits LP I have ever bought with most of the LP being funky and about 1/3 being plane wicked, stand out tunes are "Ode to Billie Joe", Dizzy, Time is Tight, Show Me and the awsome "Lets put out the lights")

    Duke Grant and his Trio - Hammond Organ Dance Party (Guantanamera starts of dodgy and then grows into hammond fuelled groove monster the rest of the LP is so so)

    Charlie Rich - Boss Man (Big Boss Man and I do My Swinging at home are the country with a bluesy groove numbers on this LP)

    The Bruce Baxtor Orchestra - 50 Popular TV THemes (Instrumental versions of 50 TV THemes about 1/3 of them are funky and while the orchestrations don't set me on fire this is a solid value LP)

    Helmut Zacharias - Tokyo Melody (most of this LP is so so, a funny funky version of I were a rich man, but fast foreward to the last track "Mexico Melody" for a fast paste groove monster)

    Chaquito - Latin Colours (Pretty good version of Light my Fire, But Upa Negrina is a latin big band funk groover to die for)

    Pepe Chaquita Brass - Tijuana Fiesta (Average version of Light my fire, "HOld me Tight" is a groover)

    BBC Radiophonic Workshop - Out of this world (Sound effects LP hoping to pass this on to someone to sample it)

    Harry Stoneham - Hammond my Way (So so hammond pops LP with the self penned "MOve IN" Being by far the best track)

    Help yourself to Hammond - (so so versions of pop hit Venus being the best track)

    These LPs are doubles that I wil be passing onto freinds

    Jason Ryder Sound - Hair (More of a straight hammond Funk instrumtal LP then anything todo with the hair musical)

    John Keating - Space Experience (You all know this LP!)

    Helmut Zacharias - Light my fire (ok medium beaty version of pop hits House that Jack Built being the highlight)

    Les Reed - International Pop Proms (Various orchestral pop hits, Satisfaction Is terrefic and good vibrations is pretty good as well)

    WAR - Youngblood (flying machine is the groovy jazzy flute number)

    MPS Various - The sound of great music (Inc Mr Clean Rhythm Combination & Brass which is german big band orchestral funk at its best)

    Chico Lopez - South of the Border (Trouble Spot is one of my favourite Runes of all time an absolutely storming monster that defines the catrogy Speed Lounge for me)

    Walker Brothers - Make it easy on yourself (All is ok but there version of Land of 100 Dances is the best I have heard so far one for the dancefloor)

    I have both the Zacharias and i kinda like both... kinda...

    I went to no charities but blew a lot of money on a record fair, mainly cheapies but also some more pricey items such as the Modulo 1000 reissue, the deleted Erkin Koray Elektronik Turkuler reissue, Gabor Szabos Jazz Raga etc.

    Among the cheapies was a couple french Paul Mauriat originals cuz they're sometimes good, some German stuff that appears to be exotica/tropical stuff, Shocking Blue's Ink Spots(is that the name?), Ventures plays tv themes such as UNCLE, Batman, Green Hornet and more....

    I was drinking quite heavily later in the evening and have been working today so I have almost not listened to anything. I started out (as I always do) with the least promising so all I heard in my haul was:

    A Roberto Delgado Bouzouki record - I bought it because we talked about it here on the forum some days ago. It didn't do it for me I can say... will give it another chance but probably end up getting rid of it.

    Jerusalem by Daliah Lavi - because Nick Ingman and Brian Bennett had made some of the arrangements. It was a bit folksy pop stuff - nothing special in my opinion.

    A Bobby Byrne Discotheque album on Command with Doc Severinsen, Tony Mottola and Dick Hyman in the band. Actually quite liked it. Decent 60s au-gogo type instros.

      albums for a quid and all mint :

      Father and Sons -- Side A Ellis Marsalis with his sons Wynton and Branford
      Side B Von Freeman with son Chico. Nice album

      Johnny Griffin - Return of the Griffin. Nice sax lead jazz

      Soprano Summit - Chalumeau Blue - Kenny Davern and Bob Wilber. Lovely soprano duets - worked great on this mornings hangover. Lovely

      Dick Morrissey - After Dark - more sax lead jazz and quite nice

      Joe Jacksons - Jumpin Jive -- jump jive stuff. Had the track Jack You Dead on Single when I was I kid so this was a nostalgia buy. I like it though.

      Plus 12" boogie fund by solar flair -- well its disco and cheesy just how I like it.

      God its great to be buying records again after a year off.

                  That's a quality 45 - top score!

                  not much for me - just that Malcolm Lockyer LP with a couple of meaty versions, a few Sham69 45s, a Catherine Wheel 12" and a local religious thing, which is pump (copyright: Sermad)

                          that's quite a nice one - shame the vocalist talks through it though - has it got the pic sleeve John? One of the first non-EP UK mainsteam releases to have one I think...?
                          Marsha Hunt 'Desdemona' (Track)
                          That's a great version, in fact I prefer it over the John's Children
                          1984 'This Little Boy' (Big T)
                          Never managed to find this one - is it a cover of the Pretty Things track on the flip? Any good?

                            I bought this LP when it first came out and loved it to bits. It got slated in all the music press of the day for not having anything original on it. An early dawning for me that your taste in music is your own and sod everyone else!

                            It sent me off digging for other swing stuff and I landed a 'loan' of the 18LP 'The Swing Era' Readers Digest box set from an uncle with a cracking version of Sing, Sing, Sing on amongst numerous other great swing instrumentals

                            It's a 'loan' I still have......

                            I think it's a great listen from start to finish and I'm gonna dig it out and MP3 some tracks this week. Thanx for the memory / reminder.

                              no picture sleeve on the Simon Stokes, I'm afraid - as you say, not a bad record though. And the 'Rosalyn' on the b-side of the 1984 single is no relation to the Pretty Things song, I'm sorry to say. In fact, it's not very good at all!
