        I'm sure John or someone else will be along - but I have a suspicion that its a rather good 'hip hop' tune that has completlely bazzled some people in the past as in 'what the fugg was that!'

          indeed - though it's not actually the 'new york rap mix' - that's atrocious like the other mixes, it's the 'nicci version' - dispenses completely with the horrible big 80's drums, and roland gift's vocals. it's really a completely different track with a jb's loop, and rap vocals by nicci bowie, who sounds somewhat like roxanne shante.

            Had a bit of a trip outta town on Friday and scored -

            Peech Boys - Life is something special LP (dbl)

            Stockhausen - Der Jahreslauf LP

            Fela & the Africa 70 - Shakara LP (what a sleeve ! What a Record &#33

            Kenny & The Beach Boys - Jurisdiction LP (Great cover of Big Payback )

            The Monkees - Instant replay LP (been after this for a while)

            Lou reed - Transformer LP

            Buddy Rich - Big swing face (dbl)

            Jay W Mcgee - When we party 12" (dbl)

            Mica Paris - Should've known better 12" (dbl)

            Gwen McRae - All this love that i'm giving 12" (dbl)

            Readers Digest - The Thrillers LP (dbl)

            Sight & Sound - Movie themes of today LP (dbl)

            Judy Mackenzie - Peace & Love & Freedom LP


            Then Hadrian Elephant dropped by the North East for a few days this Sunday - After arriving at about 1pm i immediately persuaded him to go afternoon bootin' (didn't take a lot of arm bending that one).

            We hit the first booter and both bought a few crap bits for the hell of it. Then decided to go to the last booter of the afternoon even though it was really late - BOY!!!!! Am i glad we did, I picked up -

            Fiachra Trench - Organ Time LP

            John Gregory - Man for all seasons LP

            So i was well chuffed already - By now they were packing up and we spotted one last geezer with three crates of vinyl at his feet and nothing else. Hayd said to me joking "Lets go and Kane this blokes crates"

            Well you could have knocked us down with a feather !!!!! Best 3 boxes of records i've ever seen at a booter in all my days -

            We both started pulling bits straight off, Hayd bagging a glut of groovy looking 60's OST's and a "Diamond mercenaries" for good measure, there was lots of tasty 12's, French gear, Bim Sherman - You name it !

            I pulled one LP that kind of had me tweaking and all the others i had put aside lost their appeal.....................................we totted up the 14 (?) bits and Hadrian galantly offered the guy 10 quid and i get the LP i'm clutching for free - Deal !!!!!!

            I got

            Ananda Shankar & his Music - Mint for zilch !!!!!!!!!! !!!!!

            Cheers Hadrian, your a true Gent Sir

                Its pretty lame apart from "Don't make me wait" and "On a Journey" but it's worth a couple of quid alone for the inner sleeve photo montage of Levan and all the paradise posse and their cats, families, kids etc.

                    ..that's a coincidence. I recently turned up "This is Reggae 4" sans sleeve at a local booter.

                    (...fortunately the 15 or so other Pama /Trojan LPs I found with it all had covers.

                          The Trunk comped tracks are the standouts, but i do like the majority of the LP as well - So does Hadrian Elephant judging by his facial expressions the other night when i played him it !
                          "All things bright & Beautiful" would bring a smile to anyones face with the stilted percussion intro and shwingin' singin'

                            This is obviously the week for Hymns a Swingin - just broke out of the office due to the heat, dug through five shops without a whiff of anything (well, a Politicians 45 and an Xavier Cugat 'Caricatures' LP) then turned up the elsive Mr Sammes & company for £1 in the very last box of the very last place on my walk home. Maybe the heat is drawing 'em to the surface or something... Nice LP, too.
