    I don't 'shag' women, I make love to them - expertly, with a certain aplomb and considerable skill, over sustained periods of ecstasy (for them and I).

    See me after.

      I don't 'shag' women,

      I just wanted to use some anglo saxon lingo. You know, trying to be cool ....

      I make love to them - expertly, with a certain aplomb and considerable skill, over sustained periods of ecstasy (for them and I).

      I'm very happy for you. It's good to hear that talents don't go to waste.

      See me after.

      After what?

        Glad that your time in London was so productive and memorable despite the record shops failing to deliver. And chuffed that you finally found the Dadawah.

        Yeah well, Utrecht always delivers!

        We should meet up next time! Always worth the visit ...

        Lovely to meet you too! Thanks again for the records, better one trackers than no trackers

        And luckily the record shops weren't the main purpose of my visit to London

          Couple of cheap ebay purchases in 'Todd' which is a reissue but cant date it so I'm guessing 80's (EDIT. Should have checked the inner it's 1980.). It's in immaculate condition and the seller gave no grading at all so it attracted no bids and was a punt really and I cant complain it's a fab album. 'Uncle Chapin' I liked the sound of on Youtube and its 'BS&T' , 'Dreams' style American parping jazz rock fare. 'Salvation Air Force' are Canadian Christian Rock on 'Myrhh' , 'Bonnie Raitt' is a 1976 reissue of her 1972 second album which is quite good in fact a million miles away from eighties leather jackets with lots of tassels and plastic roses in mini vases that I probably wrongly labelled her as, maybe I confuse her with 'Bonnie Tyler' in my mashed head.

          'Graham Broughton' is a PP which is nothing to write home about but it's a keeper. 'Charlie Dore' is over produced sub Joni pop, rock, folk, country new wave cant make it's mind up really style. Apparently they recorded it in Nashville then remastered it in the UK to make it more accessible for the time (1979) and it doesn't work, sounds like 'Darts'. It's in the out pile but it did lead me to her website and some of her more recent recordings sound quite good, stripped back folk with good lyrics, all on CD of course which I assume she publishes herself. One thing that struck me was the cover designs to her albums of late are really good. :

              There you go mate, it's Friday and I'm bored. Graham next to cat on a stuffed foot stool with added table that needs binning and bottle of mineral water.

                Ahhh, Graham looks a lovely smiling fellow. You can tell he's at peace with The Lord. The cat is simply at peace with knowing he's the boss.

                  He's a dapper man indeed with a wonderful head of wavy hair. Notice the cat has stolen my cardigan whilst I freeze. Oh well there is a female friend joining him in a few weeks which I'm sure he will love.

                    more rubbish from me



                    Peter Green - In the Skies - from Discogs. Always liked the early Fleetwood Mac stuff, and also his Bluesbreakers LP. Recently had been looking into the 1970-1975 period - besides "Mystery To Me" (which I had filed for years as a one tracker, but listened to the whole thing and it's pretty good, i think it was "Hypnotized" that was the other standout), and saw this recommended. From the late 70, nice and mellow. On green vinyl too
                    Bob and Carole Pegg - He Came From The Mountains - another for the Trailer collection. cheapish ebay BIN, bit overgraded - don't think the crackles or the cut corner and drill hole (through the label no less) count as EX/EX, clandy1. Earlier than the Mr Fox LPs, sounds very American on some tracks (not a bad thing).
                    ¬°Bullring! Music Of The Bull Fight Ring, La Fiesta Brava, Vol. 4 - didn't look at this too closely, just saw the 50s US sleeve and the Audio Fidelity logo. It's a Mexican brass band, quite fun and jaunty. Think 4 volumes (at least) might be overkill, so don't think I'll be hunting down the others
                    Manitas De Plata - Flamenco! L'Espagne De Manitas - excellent playing from his little silvery hands. Well worth the pound


                    Schooldays By Schoolkids - school kids singing self-written (I presume) songs on subjects such as "First Day At School", "The Bully", "My Big Brother" etc. Recorded in a studio with professional band backing, so not the usual bad school hall recording like most school choir LPs (but looking pretty much unplayed like most school records). Guessing it's about 1980, there's quite a passable reggae track too. Noticed when I got it home it was kids from all very local schools to here.
                    Jack Hawkins - Everything Is Beautiful - never had this before, and probably going out again (one for the freebie thread). Strong contender for worst sleeve to contents mismatch. Was expecting it to be soppy easy, with just 30-60-90 on there randomly, but it's a live pop/soul revue, covers of "Midnight Hour", "Billy's Bag" etc
                    Sandor Mihaly - Gypsy Night - great sleeve, worth the 25p just for that. Not played and needs a clean, but think the sound quality isn't up to much despite the label name, it doesn't seem to be the highest of fi's.
                    Halcyon Highlights - hotel band from St Lucia from 1977. Some calypso and steel drums, then a few more soulful numbers - a version of "If You Go Away" (not bad, but not keen on the singer's voice), "Here I Am Baby" - not up to Al Brown's standard though. The best is probably a track called "Tout C'est Meme", but with no songwriting credits I don't know if it's a cover or not...

                      just looked up the label of that Schoolkids record ("Bark") and I guess it's Bark Studios in Walthamstow - nice list of acts been there:
                      http://www.barkstudio.co.uk/gallery.html
                      including a few records I really love like The 18th Day of May, The Clientele, Screamadelica, etc

                        I feel it's my duty to point out that this Bonnie Raitt LP features Been Too Long At The Fair, which is one of the greatest songs ever written. A lot of Bonnie Raitt's 70's stuff is worth picking up, always good. I even have a soft spot for that Nick Of Time 80's comeback stuff. And she's a great guitar player also.

                          Yep she's definitely got chops and there are very few female bottleneck players I can name from the 70s. I think I saw her doing something for BBC 4 or it could have been part of the 'transatlantic sessions' and thought she can play. I honestly had no clue her first album came out in 71 even when I fished this out of a chazza box I read the reissue date of 76 and thought that was early but after putting it on I thought this sounds much earlier and looked it up not to mention she looks about 18 on the cover. Nice musical surprise all round.
