  • Sunstroke For This ?



    Standing in baking heat in a field on Sunday, going through Boxes of LP's all 20p each. And I mean boxes, LP's thousands of em ! In the end I felt dehydrated and sick, was it worth it ????

    A couple of Sound Effect LP's, great if you want to hear a Ford Cortina false starting (and who doesn't?). Next is a fantastic Easy Rider Rip Off LP on the Windmill label. What a great British affair this is, A biker riding a Harley in the desert ? No a biker riding a triumph in a council estate. Jon Penn is the cover stars name, and what a poor quality pic, its taken in the evening with no flash and Jon has his arm over his face. Is he camera shy or just a tad embarrassed about what he's put to vinyl? In my opinion the LP sounds like it was produced in someone's shed, a very tinny affair. But you don't need Phil Spector to make a record sound good and hidden away on here is some great Hammond and fuzz guitars. Born to be wild sounds great with Organs as does If six was nine, but key freak out track has to be Kyrie Eleison. Come On Jon its pretty good, why didn't you show your face ?
    On the flip of this LP is Che by Marylebone Orchestra, yeah another soundtrack. 2 Soundtracks for the price of one, this is pretty good too.
    Son Of Gutbucket throws up quite a lot of nice prog from the Liberty label from 69, with the Groundhogs being the best band here IMO
    Jon Inman with a bit of brass is from 78 and you can tell what this LP is like before you even hear it. Loads of innuendos and ooompahs make this a tad hard to listen to in one sitting. Also a quite nice Herb Albert inspired LP from the avenue label, don't rush out and buy it though.
    Vinyl Sales are outstripping CD Sales 10000 to 1

    Not so bad here, though similar mismatch between quantity of vinyl looked through to quantity bought...or even considered. Still, a few nice 'uns at the end of the weekend...and those Happy Mondays/Breeders/Blur etc LPs are just the relatively few keepers out of 40 LPs purchased for £25, and mainly destined for ebay. There's a bit of Cure/The The/Hugo Largo elsewhere I've been dabbling in to see how it sounds now, but these pictured are the ones that aren't going anywhere, for now.

    Of the others, the John Surman is an odd Brit-free jazz thing - need to listen some more - the First Impressions one is ace, low-fi garage band type covers with hammond (anyone know who's behind this?), and the Electronic Music is a bit avant 'squeaks & bangs', but has a lovely Walter Carlos piece for Flute & Electronics that sounds like something off the Trunk Clangers LP...that Everly Brothers one's surprisingly good, too - nice versions of things like CC Rider (bit of fuzz) and Hi-Heel Sneakers...

    The East Of Eden is a spare, too, in case anyone's still after Jig-a-Jig...as is the 'African Sanctus'.

      Alexandru Imre & Cantable - Non Stop Dancing I (Electrecord) LP
      My Own ABC Record (MFP) LP

      Oh and some really nasty sun burn.

            i really like that Les Sans Nom album... i normally hate really cheery, cheesy stuff, but for some reason that one seems to push the right buttons...

              Couple of Malaysian and Hong Kong bits and bobs for me.

              But highlight was the purchase of a boxed set of 1970's Rank Headphones in white plastic. Already developing distorted neck muscles to carry these monster cans. As if my musical delight wasn't enough, for 2 quid got an eighties LaserFX (laser light thing that pulses to the beat of the music).

              Now if only I could find my Brutus jeans........

                i knows what you mean...northern english latin had a kind of appeal-chico arnez being another example !

                keep finding le sans noms album...has it any value?

                  Utter s***e in MK too!!

                  I even stalked a seller for the first time!! The bloke I got Denis Lopez/Keith Mansfield & other good bits from last weekend told me he he was returning with more boxes of records this week.

                  He did return. With boxes. Which had records in.

                  Lightning doesn't strike twice. Just a 'spares' week. But I like the exercise and sun.

                  Wayne...believe it or not....MK is STILL an 'African Sanctus' free-zone. Will PM you.

                    Tis a strange one. There was a time a couple of years back when i found 2 or 3 of these in a month. Have'nt seen one since. A great LP by Mr Love which hardly gets a mention me thinks.

                      I think it has a few nice tracks. Talking Drums is nice if you like...well, drums.

                      I'll not bother listing all the rubbish I got, just the more interesting.

                      Market:

                      1) The Ark-Chad & Jeremy. Nice if you like Millenium/Sagittarius/Gary Usher stuff.
                      2) Carol Grimes-S/T. Nice uptempo version of breakbeat classic "Uphill Peace Of Mind".
                      3) Bill Black's Combo-Soulin' The Blues. Only got this as it was pictured in Wax Poetics (New York Convention article). One nice Tramp type track, rest is boring blues.
                      4) The Gil Evans Orchestra Plays Jimi Hendrix. Really like this. Good covers of Cross Town Traffic, Foxy Lady etc. Recommended.

                      Car Boot:
                      1) 4 12's T Connection -Groove To Get Down and Do What You Wanna Do, A Taste of Honey-Boogie Oogie Oogie and The Brothers Johnson-3 track feat Ain't We Funkin' Now and Strawberry Letter 23.
                      2) Soul Factory-Various comp on Polydor. One of those 28 Non-Stop thingys featuring the usual Poly artists, ie James Brown, Kool & Gang, Fatback Band etc.
                      3) Hot Butter-Popcorn. Bit too cheesy for my tastes this.

                      ...and other things not worth mentioning. Not the best car boot day ever!

                        For reasons I won't go into, I've not been able to do much digging for a while, other than the few worn out over priced charities on the way to work... and I caught myself only just last week mumbling to myself about how decent records just don't turn up in chazza's anymore, how my time would be better spent digging on the net etc etc...

                        But folks, you know you just gotta keep going back time and time again with crossed fingers...

                        This morning in one of the usual haunts I got that twisted stomach feeling... You know the one where your flipping through a box of utter kak and wondering just how many records did jim reeves & sydney devine sell, and you see arecord so out of place, so obviously of a quality and scarecity that has you checking for hidden cameras, that you just stop... dead... pinch yourself, try and remain calm, and approach the little old lady peeping over the top of the cash register.

                        Now, all the logic and common sense in the world tells you that this little old lady can't possibly know what this record may be worth, but your still expecting her to say 'all the records are a pound except that one, of course, it's a snip at £50(?)' but...

                        she doesn't

                        and I walk away with Horse S/T RCA Victor stereo SF 8109 for a pound!!!!!!!!

                        Result!

                        Faith restored in charity shops.

                        Big smile on my face all day because of it.

                        So what is the story with this group 2 copies on Gemm for much cash, and I'm just plain scared to google 'horse'... and a touch lazy...

                          The record gods were smiling on me this afternoon, I put it all down to finding that Fontana Concert Orchestra LP last week - I now have the power of Townsend...... :

                          Tony Osborne - Brass and Ivory (Deram - been after this for a while, nice to find one for fifty pee, especially with huge original WH Smith 'Reduced to 80p' sticker on the front!)

                          Peter Thomas Sound Orchestra - Sounds In Super Stereo (Polydor - the first ever PT album I've seen in the wild, did nobody buy his records over here??)

                          Johnny Harris - Movements (Warner, 2nd issue with green label, lovely copy, spare if anyone wants it)

                          James Last - Well Kept Secret (another spare if someone fancies it)

                          Herb Alpert - Viva Mexico (A&M - compilation designed to cash in on the 1968 World Cup, not seen this before!)

                          Plus some lovely big band stuff from Kurt Edelhagen, Syd Lawrence and Ken Mackintosh - outside VV territory, but brilliant, especially the Edelhagen.

                          Not as far as I'm aware, but next time you see one can you buy it for me and I'll pay you back - I really like their track 'Corazon' on 'The World Of TV Themes', actually I play it quite often on my own guitar!
