  • April Finds

    kicking off the month with some super seven inches



    A curious find in a charity shop bin, more info here http://www.45cat.com/record/dlc6791






    suitably creepy (crawly) sound effects





    With relegation from the Premiership looming for WBA it was all so different 50 years ago







    hilarious



    A great organ and fuzzy guitar tune








    I have tried playing this bizarre 3 holed copy but it's the middle one that still works best







    nice UK promo of the Spaghetti Western whistler - produced by the German Jack White






    A reggae tune about getting a headache from smoking too much weed, probably





    find of the week was this single I had never come across before, a catchy cut from the Mothers at Fillmore East LP

    Finds! I went into town to get some bird food and popped into a charity shop and actually found something there. The stuff in our charity shops doesn't change from year to year so God Knows how this ended up there

    Traditional Breton songs from the Hennebont region. Sounds like they just set a tape recorder going in the middle of the room and went for it. Sounds just like you're in the room with them. Also found this.

    Sleeveless so just £2. This is supposedly his last LP before being killed by a drunk driver. Meade is usually heard solo but this features guitar, bass, congas, and drums. He usually has plenty of oomph but with this line up he has even more oomph. There's a fantastic version on Glendale Glide on here although there may not be many boogie-woogie fans on the forum. While I had my Camera out I thought I'd snap a few other things I've got recently.

    This was £6 inc post from France. I think people like Vampire Man but I go with the A side

    Nice demo copy, for a couple of quid, of Hank with Norrie Paramour in overdrive for a change. Thumping drums, thumping string section even.

    Uruguay copy of Milton Banana in super condition. I thought it a bargain for £14.

    US folky coffee shop bizness on the Dunwich label. I like Steve Goodman and that's what drew me to this. Doesn't have to cost a lot but it's hard to find over here.
    And finally Cyril

    Poor old Keith, I think he gets a hard time. One hit wonder unt all dat ting. This is pure pop with nary a duff track on it. Lovely crisp laminated sleeve, mint record, a fiver well spent. I'm not going to convert anyone to Keith I don't suppose but I find the brass intro to 98.6 pretty irresistible but that's his big hit so I'll go with something else.

      The Bryce Rohde Story Vol.1

      I mentioned Vol. 2 some time back and there was a track from it on my first swap CD.

      Nothing that good on this to my ears. Side 2 is extracts from his LP "Straight Ahead". It was also issued under the titles "Ordinary", "Ho Hum" and "Next Please". Side 1 is extracts from a live set and has a bit more pep. Still, the only bit that caught my attention was a guitar part by George Golla.

      I got it from Dusty Groove. The vinyl was described as "NM"; I won't quibble. Sleeve is probably a strong VG+. A quick look at Discogs suggests that US$8 was a bargain.

      I read a while back that the Australian Jazz Quartet were big in the US in their day - almost 'Dave Brubeck big'. I've never seen anything by them here.

      A photo may follow if the computer will deign to recognise that it is there on my phone.

          Some various finds of interest, wont bother with some of the less interesting ones from my journeys. Thought I'd struck gold with a mono press of the mindbenders but it has a warp, almost like a fold as the record is so thick that renders tracks 1-2-3 on side 1 unplayable and track 1 on side 2 as well as causing an annoying click until the last two tracks on each side which is a shame as it's a top LP, gutted. 'On Top' was a good find, 'Music and Rhythm' is a 2 LP comp to fund the first WOMAD with a ton of great artists on it. The TV themes LP is pretty groovy and Don Lang does a mean version of 'The Sidewinder'.



          Various Cannon Fodder. Mike Kennedy is pretty terrible, sub Neil Diamond poop save a track or two. I like John Denver's first album proper despite it's tweeness. I also like the second Hall and Oates album which probably means I should upsticks and head over to the Steve Hoffman forums quicksmart! 10" Cornet tutorial as my nephew is learning, yeah right.... Cannon and Ball just for the track below and 'JR Taylor' 1980 Westwood release which I've not listened to. :





          One day I might tell the story of when 'Bobby Ball' knocked on my front door.

              I'm also partial to Abandoned Luncheonette. The title and cover are enough, but what's in the grooves is worth it too. Had three copies over the years but never one it tip top condition.

                Yep sold on both counts and it looked 'un-played, has an ever so slight warp but doesn't affect play. It's a pretty lush sounding record, beautiful harmonies and that philly soul sound coming through mixed with their own unique style. I don't think I'm going to rush out and buy 'H20' but I cant deny the greatness of this record.

                  They've had their moments but I can hardly think of them now without seeing the Big Train sketch. "We get a whole bunch of helicopters to just fly on over and just drop shades"

                      I spent a chunk of this morning at the twice-a-year rock 'n roll record fair.

                      The Newman is shaping up to be a disappointment. The draw was his own composition "Chimaera", which, the sleeve notes tell me, owes a debt to Berio and Messiaen. First listen suggests a formless barrage of harpsichord sounds.

                      The draw with the Falcons was the last track which name-checks John Coltrane. Clearly, a later 70's Spanish spiritual jazz piece. Not a late 70's exercise in slightly rock inflected dancehall grooves.

                      The Ipanema Pop Orchestra looks dead-cert to be to blase session musos going through the motions. Not Deodato and chums in a foundation-laying context as the web would have me believe.

                      Eddie Harris is deffo not a keeper. Way too 'smooth jazz'. There is a short idiosyncratic track on side 1 that I might listen to again before it goes. Chris Squire impresses on bass on the last track on side 2.

                      Side 1 of the Jacques Loussier has a scratch across it. Inaudible on first listen, though. Otherwise it would be a strong ex+ Good, if perhaps not entirely my thing. I'll give it a chance.

                      $12 all up.

                        The Jacques Loussier is quite possibly my favourite OST of all time, and the Ipamena Pop Orchestra has a couple of good tracks.

                          I've only so far listened to side 1 of the Loussier. Very solid, for sure. Esp. for an OST. Obviously, there is a strong 'jerk' aspect, but the arrangements are strong and there is plenty of variety. The fact that I probably won't keep it is no reflection on the quality. I just doubt that it is my thing. $2.50 well spent, anyway.

                          I have no reason to doubt that it is Deodato etc. I only played a couple of tracks and it sounded a bit lush. But I am not about to jettison early Deodato without giving it a serious listen. If it goes I imagine I will recoup my $1.

                          I had the Falcons on in the background. My attention must have been elsewhere for the spiritual jazz episodes. Is there a 'misleading product description' there? Almost certainly to go. Slight warp quickly catches the eye on the turntable, but doesn't seem to impact on play.

                            My first sighting of an Australian Jazz Quintet LP too. I didn't investigate, having been discouraged by Bryce Rohde.

                            And first local sighting of the first Carpenters LP. But there was no question of spending $10 having just spent $2.50 on the Loussier.

                              What has just detracted from the day is the realisation that I passed on a $10 copy of this:
