  • February Finds

    Two days of charity shop digging and one auction kicks off Feb in fine fashion




    The eternal question is finally answered and it involves Wagner and volcanoes.







    Fully signed (I have to assume as there were 5 of them - I checked, one signed it twice) debut 7" by Dorset's finest






    A suitably grim sleeve for this Robert Wyatt 7" I'd not seen before.




    I picked up several original cast soundtracks from the 60's in an auction lot like this one.





    This beautiful blue vinyl LP which comes with the full book of the title inside the gate-fold was a kind present.





    Some nice Library records found in charity shop bins - mixed in with the classical records which is why I assume they were still there.









    One extreme to the other, three of these albums were in the same box!




    From Summer Camp in 1972



    to Concentration Camp in 1945







    spoken word in 1975




    Thrash metal madness in 1988





    I couldn't find anything online about this 12" of House remixes, it's no doubt a bootleg



    ​​​​​​​




    I couldn't resist this 50p CD lurking in the racks

    Some market swaps, bit of a Frank/Sammy motherlode which reminds me I also picked up 'Close to You' which is just lush and a nice clean copy of 'Nice and Easy' from a 4 for a pound deal which I got with the folk Lps shown in the second pic. 'Cycles' is wrecked but after hearing it I had to order a better copy. Oh and the 'Au Pairs' is New Wave from 1981 and is alright I'm listening now.



    Couple of 80's folk rekkids, Bonkers Psyche French Prog masterpiece I'm sure everyone knows and Carole King's first band 'The City' which is has great drumming and is all sorts of good. Oh and not forgetting some Harmonica from the 'Last of The Summerwine', 'Shoestring' guy whose name momentarily escapes me but was the Brit 'Larry Adler'.

        You're not wrong mate. I listened to some sound clips before I pulled the trigger but wasn't prepared for how well produced it is and how it sounds through a proper system.

                This (Barbara Moore ‎– The World Of Collection 1966-1981 EM Records ‎– EM1025DLP) turned up at Disk Union yesterday for about a tenner, so I jumped on it. Obviously not literally.
                Haven't listened yet but I love the other LP I have ... Motions & Potions or whatever it is ... I mean Vocal Shades And Tones of course ...

                  And this (Zodiac Music From The Films USSR 1985) is quite odd. Kind of like a prog rock band playing Tomita ... Discogs description says "Abstract, Electro" ... I suspect that was written by someone wanting to sell it ... it makes me wonder about what kind of parallel universe the USSR was in 1985 ...

                    Discogs genres aren't a great list to begin with, and there's also a lot of users who'll add genres dependent on the tracks - so if an easy listening album has an arrangement of a classical piece on it they'll add "Classical", arrangement of a film theme and you get "Soundtrack" as well etc.


                    almost bought that Satie for guitars a few months back but think condition was bad. Or maybe I just mislaid it (it was in a charity with a good few hundred LPs). Any good? Looks like my kind of thing

                      Can't say personally as a recent convert. That track is a Lee Hazelwood composition I believe from his 67 album 'The World We Knew' which allmusic criticise for 'fuzz'. I'm listening to it now and I'm yet to hear much. I'm liking it though, it's the one with 'Something Stupid' on it.

                        Picked up a 45 by Belgian singer Kate. No clips online, so I did a Soundcloud thingy of one of the tracks. The other side is Lets Have A Party, which is also very good. Kate was in Clees Five, who did the cool No Other Man 45. I think there's a touch of Proud Mary in her delivery and sound too. https://soundcloud.com/treeboy227/kate

                            Yeah never come across them before, I like it. The bass and overall sound reminds me of 'young marble giants' who someone turned me on to a bit back. It's an ex 'Northumberland Libraries' record but it plays well enough although the cover is a bit wrecked.
