  • September Finds

    Go on then, I'll start things off this month. At risk of folk getting bored of hearing from me.

    Fingers crossed some other folk post their stuff up and drown me out a bit!





    The above batch are all chazza finds. I think I've had the WMS LP before and moved it on, the same will happen this time. The Deacon version of 'Love Story' is an Armando Sciascia production and you can hear it in the rhythm section. Probably not a keeper, but it's an interesting version. The bottom two came from a chazza that I visited last thing as I'd missed my bus. The Hammond one will be a freebie, but the Cicero LP is a nice bit of piano jazz / trio, with Charly Antolini on drums.






    The above selection all came from Rob's. David Diggs was a nice surprise - never heard of him / it. Nice 70s jazz, with a right good dollop of dirty funkiness. Sleeveless copy of Joyce's 'Feminina', for a couple of quid, which you can't mither at really. Lalomie Washburn is one I had years ago, but can't remember where it went, so I'll hang on to this. It's made me want to get the 12" of 'Manpower' again too (gifted that to a mate - schoolboy error). Bottom row is a bit more of that icy post-punk sound that's starting to creep more into my playlist now that summer is fading.






    Had a load of credit to use down the market at the weekend. So I got a proper mixed bag of stuff. Let's just say I was being quite experimental here. I'll keep the Cleo Laine for 'We Could Be Flying', but the other three will be wending their way out via the forum I reckon. The Radiophonic stuff is good fun, but I can't see when I'd be playing it, you know? The Melodians is actually, slightly superior pans stuff, with a proper band backing, but a bit too rough and reggae (sic) for me.






    More from the market trades. I'd been recommended to give 'Gazeuse!' a try, I won't be listening to such recommendations again - really not my kind of thing at all, so that one will be going in the trades pile. More Siouxsie, think I'm falling in love. Spare of Brides of Funkenstein for my mate. Lovely easy / samba from Marcos Valle - pretty essential really.






    Last two from the market are total Mojo, but I figure there's loads of classics I need that I don't really want to spend money on, so I'd rather hoover up when trading. Told you I'd end up on a King Crimson kick once I'd found that copy of '....Crimson King'. Got to say, I think '....Poseidon' is better, or at least, I prefer it. Will have to keep my eye out for more, but I've no idea up to which point King Crimson are essential versus the point at which it's 'fans only'. And I treated myself to the Deluxe copy of the new QOTSA album. I always need to live with their LPs a while before I fall in love with them, but it's inevitable (paraphrasing Ian Brown there). Not everyone's cuppa, granted, but I've loved them long time.


    I need to crack on now as I've made myself feel sick from Aldi Fruit Chews. Says on the pack 'Perfect for Sharing' - I should probably try that.

    Jet Boy stole my baby.

    a lot of interesting stuff there, never heard of half of them.

    "Men" is about the only good track on that Mae West LP (nice open drum break as well IIRC), and that's on a 45 I think. "Light My Fire" is ok, but there are much better versions, and the rock'n'roll covers are a bit naff. Never had the other similar LP (Way Out West?), that might be a better bet

    CS&N is great, only heard (and bought) it a couple of years back, after having been listening to a lot of things heavily influenced by them, and seeing their name keep getting mentioned. Normally avoiding Mojo stuff serves me well, but there are exceptions. So far have passed on the subsequent albums and solo ones which all seem to have a good track or two, but are patchier, like the Nash one or the Crosby one all the Waxidermists love. Might have "Deja Vu" though, I can't remember

      As a huge Gong fan I wouldn't recommend Gazuese to anyone it shouldn't bear the Gong name.

      With Crimson I don't think personally they have a duff period it's Fripp's constant line up changes and rejigging of their style that makes them so fresh. I love the early stuff, the Adrian belew albums especially THRAK from the 90's but my fave Crimson album is 'Red' which is rifftastic. Should probably mention it's quite doom laden and dark but then I suppose all KC albums are.

      Bill Buford said when he joined Robert Fripp gave him a reading list of all Crowley and magic books and other weird shiz. In recent times I saw Toyah on one one of those Ghost programs exorcising ghosts from the family home. As an afterthought the scariest thing about KC is seeing Robert Fripp on 'Mr and Mrs' in a terrible suit.

      That said the little I've seen of their latest incarnation with two drummers sounds beyond amazing.

        I happened across this earlier today. Mine for the asking, I believe. Possibly as a freebie.

        It was the words "Nappy Head" and "Boogaloo Combo" that caught my eye. And if that Combo had had a different organ sound this might well have been a keeper. It is on Youtube if you are curious. It looks as though the original "Boogaloo Combo" LP has its admirers.

        Holler if you are desperate for this LP - I might keep it for 'passing on purposes', on that basis.

            Re King Crimson: Many fans wouldn't consider Islands or Earthbound essential, and Wake and Lizard probably not either. However, ItCotCK, LTiA, Red, and SaBB definitely are held in high esteem by Crimheads.

              Some finds, freebies, ebay purchases.

              More Papa Nes which I'm loving, nice EX Brubeck for 99p, Jimmy is a bit battered not played it yet and 'Greg Adams' is so cheesy and Yacht Rock it had me creased up laughing, it's bordering on genius in the fromage stakes, wish I could find some clips. 'Hold On' is pure barn dance stilton and 'Mediterranean Lady' has the funniest synth sound I've heard in many a long while. Al Stewart has a locked groove which was a bit of a downer as it's otherwise not bad, I like his early Donovanesque noodlings. :



              Some PP, Country, Xian and Disco in shrink, yet to listen. :


              '
              Bit of a mish mash, not listened to them all, 'Jan Holly' had it's moments, the Deram Hammond album is your usual cheesy fare. 'The Peppers - Pepperrbox' have one Moog trick and milk it to the max and 'The Family Affair' is an odd Folk/Psyche/Beat release on SAGA which has a couple of good tracks. I think Treeboy flagged this some time back and it's the first time I've seen it in the wild. Missing from that lot is another PP entitled 'Prairie Moon' which is pretty dire give or take. :

                Brubeck is ubiquitous. Some must be worth a punt, surely?

                Unlike, say, "Yoga for Health" by Mike Batt, upon which I wasted $5 earlier today. I can provide a photo, if need be. Just send $5 to...

                $2 also spent on "Stereo Motion in Percussion". The words "Hollywood "Pops" Orchestra" on the cover somehow escaped me. Plenty of open perc (esp. "Beguine for Bongos") might help me to recoup my outlay. But free to a good home, if you can stand the postage.

                  Brubeck makes nice undemanding background music, his official releases number many. 2 I rate beyond others are the 'Jazz impresions of Euroasia' and for a bit of 70s swagger the album he did with his sons 'Two generations of...'.

                        "this week I have mostly been buying singles"


                        tasty Danish picture sleeve edition from 1960





                        smokey single from Switzerland - listen and cough





                        3 x Polish singles - I just liked the sleeves to be honest



                        one sided UK (I assume) test pressing






                        ICI promo 7" from the Rupert The Bear singer released to plug Savlon






                        curious private Folk EP from the early 70's





                        Bollywood soundtrack EP from 1966






                        strange French religious single with insert


                        2 card flexi-discs









                        I did win a huge lot of folk & classic vinyl at the auction last week but am still going through it,
                        this full set of 60's Topic albums complete with their booklets was a sweet find.

                              Tony Bennett and Bill Evans was a nice Chazza find alongside some mid to late 70's Xian. The 'Bertha Belle Browne' album on Monument was a steal on ebay unopened in it's shrink so even though the few references I could find to it alluded that it was the worst record released on that label I thought it worth a punt. The Ernie Wilkins music is a folk/jazz/country like vibe with some of the weirdest vocals I've ever heard. It's quite mad and indescribable so I wont bother and I cant find any clips but yep bat shit bonkers in a good way I think.
