    Morning all.

    I have noticed lately that I've been using you people as a safety net, I've been picking up records in charity shops and at car boots not minding that I'm risking it in areas where I have little or no knowledge cos I say to myself 'One of the vultures will want it even if I don't!".

    So, I see myself as providing something of a public service here.

    My last week of digging hasn't been the most fruitful ever, but I've done OK. I may even take the plunge in doing a chart for next month's update at this rate. Here's what I found that's of note:

    (In a shop)

    Isis - S/T (Buddah)

    (On flea market)

    DeWolfe - Trendsetter
    DeWolfe - Millennium
    Bosworth - Brassy & Rhythmic
    Themes - Light Activity
    Chappell - Music By Pete Moore

    (Car Boot)

    BBC Radiophonic Workshop - Fourth Dimension (BBC)
    Various - James Brown's Funky People Vol2 (Urban)
    Burt Bacharach - Butch Cassidy OST (A&M/Hamlet)
    Koichi Oki - Yamaha Superstar (Ad-Rhythm)
    18th Century Corporation - Burt Bacharach Baroque (Sunset)
    Guitars Unlimited - Fantastic Sound Of... (Phase 4)
    Johnny Pearson - Touch Me In The Morning (Penny Farthing)

    (Charity Shops)

    Artie Kornfeld Tree - A Time To Remember! (Dunhill/ABC)
    John Dankworth - Off Duty (Phillips)
    Paul Mauriat - Stereo Spectacular (Phillips)
    Carpenters - Ticket To Ride (A&M/Hamlet)
    Alan Haven - Images (Phillips)
    Miles Davis - In Europe (Can't remember&#33
    Modern Jazz Quartet - European Concert Vol2 (Can't remember&#33
    Flip Nunez - My Own Time and Space (Catalyst)
    John Porter Trio - Jazz In Landscape (Apollo)

    Some of these will be kept, some will go to the guy on the flea market to exchange for more juicy stuff and some are here and now for anyone who would like to pay me some postage money and take them on a free transfer:

    PS Did anyone see On The Ball on Saturday? Using Terry Callier's 'Ordinary Joe' as the background music to footage of England's players, in particular Michael Owen? Shame Mr Callier didn't write a more appropriate ditty like 'Cheating Little Twat'.

              Ben, any chance of laying hands on the Bacharach Baroque one? Let me know postage details (or I could always stand you a coffee/beer one lunchbreak...)

                PS If anyone is so moved by my generosity that they'd like to sort me out with some 'shrooms (it's almost time&#33, that would be cool as I can't be ragged with tramping through muddy fields in Derbyshire to pick my own!

                  Depends where you're working: city centre? (quite like the Atlas coffee shop next to the spec shop off Market Sq sometimes...or the Broadway bar). Maybe the Alley Cafe for that nouveau hippies vibe if you're up the other end and hitting Rob's/Barnardos on your way...

                  As for the 'shrooms, I'd forgotten about that - used to live in the wilds of West Wales & pick a bagful every day in season off of me own lawn...God, I miss the countryside...

                    Shall I just add that to the cost of the Radio Clyde LPs then?

                    My Blankety Blank chequebook and pen hasn't arrived yet, but I'll sort you out as soon as they do!

                      Yeah, add it on. I'll send them separately though as a) the mailers are too cramped for any additions and b) they're getting too heavy and Parcel Force (and the concomitant price changes) would be involved.
