    Wouldn't worry to much; that Loussier is great and at $2.50 it's a bit of an Ooooff.

      more seven inches, mostly from the first car boot of the season - hurrah!




      A great Mick Ronson cover version from 1980 in an exclusive German picture cover.






      Late period Slits





      The sound of old aeroplanes on a mini-lp in a fold-out sleeve and promise of a poster, sadly missing









      This is the first time I have seen this BBC themes mega-mix (credited to Tony Blackburn's producer Phil "the collector" Swern)






      The same goes for this Glammy Pop which I completely missed out on at the time

      listen : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j9py8fryy_8




      A KB 7" that never seems to crop up very often

      listen : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lxVcrFTzZMs





      A mysterious one sided acetate with no info only a folky tune on it





      the only single ever released by C.O.B. which stands for Clive's Original Band - Clive Palmer that is






      Probably the rarest find of the week was this theme to the Sherlock Holmes movie from 1965







      The same song that Cliff came 2nd with at Eurovision in 1968 - how strange that the label name checks the festival

      listen : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rdCc-HuTn30






      Written and produced by the late Bill Maynard - the BMA logo was no doubt separated at birth with

        I lost track of KB after the first 2 LPs. That reminds me of Madness.

          Here's a 'Dick Gaughan - Handful of Earth' reissue which is a 1980 album of Irish tinged Scottish folk with a political edge recorded following a Nervous breakdown and in the wake of Thatcher being elected. He's a great player and it's a great album originally on Topic. 'Wild Oats' a 'Westwood' release from 1973 which I have high hopes for and a 'Martin Denny' which I thought I had but dont but it's his 'Honey' sound so not promising. Oh and a 1970's school Glock which needs some tweaking that I was chuffed to bits to find for £1.99. I have a new one in 2 parts that cost quite a bit but I've been after one of these for years. Got a copy of 'The Kinks - Soap Opera' but the cover is so wrecked I'd be embarrassed to post, minty vinyl mind. No RSD for me I'd have to travel too far and have gardening to do!

          Just reading some of the ludicrous 1 star reviews from when that Kinks album came out. Bonkers concept album, critics hated it, usually a good sign that I am going to love it!

          Should add I've had a bit of a 'Kinks' phase but I'm not massively over-familiar with their albums the fact it was from 1975 intrigued me more.

          EDIT: The 'Wild Oats' is good they mix folk with country music and they are great musicians.

            I'd forgotten all about that until I read this. Mind you, I'm also in the garden; that couch grass won't dig itself up.

              Same here until yesterday, if I lived closer to anywhere involved in it I'd have taken a drive down this morning but sadly not.

              EDIT: Just to add I'm on a tea break!

                Blimey. What was this doing in the local British Heart Foundation?

                A strangely moving 20 minute bagpipe piece 'Macintosh's Lament', actually a good listen. Also picked up a couple of cheap British Reggae 45s online

                The Earl George is particularly soulful.

                I couldn't resist 'Golden Memories of Zanzibar' for a couple of quid. Field recordings of a Market place, a nuptial song, there's a great marimba piece which sounds like something Steve Reich might have heard and appropriated. Very nice; clear vinyl too.

                  'Golden Memories of Zanzibar' I'd have grabbed that.

                    Chatting briefly to a record store owner today, he denied having made any particular arrangements for RSD. Which would mean that the Japanese jazz LP below was a genuine sale item at $10. Not listened yet, but I have a couple of CD's by Isao Suzuki (bass) that aren't going anywhere in a hurry. I also recognize George Otsuka's name (drums). Discogs ask seems rather more than $10. Vinyl looks sweet. Slight wear on sleeve. My only slight reservation is that that sticker looks a bit too firmly in place.

                    Lotte and Johanna have two entries in Discogs. Not this LP. I have passed on the others in the last few weeks. $4 on this on the basis of various Oz jazz figures on backing duties. The last three tracks betray no jazz leanings. Straight Austrian folkishness. I'll check the rest to see if there is anything with a freaky/ethereal vibe. But I am ready to write off that $4. Especially if something else I saw is still there next weekend.

                    Left behind a Swingles LP that I don't have. Drat.

                          I only went to one car boot this morning but it was a local village garage sale that came up trumps with a big haul
                          of rock albums at £2 a pop including Sabbath, Yes, Floyd etc, to find all the Led Zeppelin back catalogue in one box
                          was a first for me. They were not the best finds of the glorious sunny day but I was glad I dragged myself up and out at 6am.




                          All in lovely condition and an In Through The Out Door I didn't have which makes it 3 down 3 to go.
                          Swansong released the LP in 6 different sleeves - you got it in a paper bag so never knew which one would be in it.





                          There were several Who albums too, the smartest of the bunch was this UK first pressing with booklet.





                          The sweetest of £1 garage sale finds (the guy literally went into his garage and pulled out a pile of LP's from a cupboard)
                          was this beautiful UK original of their debut from '65, it's a keeper!







                          The same pile had this boxed album sitting on the bottom, it even came with the original drumsticks,
                          "I bought it for my son in the 60's but he never used it"



                          Back of the box lists a mind-boggling amount of other releases on the same label








                          Early 60's TV space show theme, I wasn't too fussed it didn't have the original picture sleeve

                            Ha , thank you I couldnt bloody find them , never thought that Boots might be a label

                            Nice finds HG, you keep inspiring me to go to a car boot but whenever I go , about once a year, they are just dire

                              Great finds HG. Local village garage sales - now there's a UK US gumbo - are the way to go I reckon but need to keep your eyes and ears open to find them.

                                Blimey, and there was I thinking that the paper bag was to save you the embarrassment of your mates knowing that you owned an extremely uncool album that contained the spectacularly craptastic 'Hot Dog'. That's way too much 'classic rock' for me to consume at one sitting, HG, but I think in your shoes I too would have closed my eyes and thought of the potential earnings, so well done. To be honest, if that Zombies album was the only thing I found this year, I'd be happy with that.

                                I've encountered a couple of 'Music Minus One' albums myself (discussed somewhere in 'Classical Finds' methinks) - in my case it was classical flute pieces recorded sans flute - the idea being that the student of said instrument learns to play over the backing track. Your drum version looks rather more comprehensive, so hopefully there might be some breakbeats in there, although there's probably a lot of beat music with erm, no beats too. Interesting, but not for the listener.

                                Surprised to see that Barry Gray record is on Melodisc - that label has quite a history - although Barry Gray fans can now boast that he was on the first British indie label along with Leadbelly and Lord Invader!
