    Few end-of-the-month tiddlers from me, after a pretty unsuccessful bit of legwork last Friday (I called it quits cos of the heat fairly early on and was in the shower for 16.00!).





    The above selection were chazza finds. Second time I've found 'Act Like You Know' in a chazza in recent times. Great tune, great clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=prOdQJIDGlo

    Denis King has a couple of mid-tempo sleazy listening tunes that justify offering it as a freebie when I next offload the pile. Altered Images to add to my 80s pop / indie collection and a Rosetta Tharpe LP that was really only to add ballast when I go down the market this weekend.






    Some 12"s from Anarchy, all of which are keepers, which is a new experience for me! I also got a couple of LPs which have already gone in my mate's parcel (bit of Stevie Nicks 'Bella Donna' type action).






    Also heading for the Brighton and Hove area for my mate, cos he's a big fan of the Stourbridge sound! Even though I'm struggling to part with 'Hup' as that carries great memories of getting smashed on Black Russians!!


    A quiet end to the month, but it's been too pigging warm to make much effort, what can I tell you?

              Well, if you will only request one record on a freebies thread when you know there's room for at least 4 in a mailer...


              A fine head and chest of hair, Ray Merrell ‎– Disco Country Style:

              I didn't heard much (any?) disco on this, maybe on the last track ("Jezebel").
              Also there's a face (sad Jesus?) in his bone necklace pendant thing that I can't not see now.

                  Onie looks concerned and unhappy. I guess "shucking my corn" is a metaphor for "shagging my wife"
                  Or perhaps John is kneeling out of shot in front of Onie?

                      I was wondering if Onie Wheeler was a trucker on a unicycle?

                        The lamp post was presumably bewildered by the news that it was being replaced by another even more old fashioned lamp post....

                        Oddly enough, there is only one other building on Coronation Street, Salford that remains from the time of Barbara's photoshoot, not that it's anything like as famous....

                            re: that "For Adults Only" LP on Surprise - I think I knew before then forgot, but I was given the recent Trojan Story book (a very nice weighty thing) and it mentioned about "Surprise" being one of Chris Blackwell's Island Records labels (at least the UK one, some titles were licensed from Surprise in the US). It also mentions Lee Gopthal (a very familiar name in the history of UK reggae) making the fake G-string knickers for the sleeves of another Surprise release "Music To Strip By" ...

                              I was too hasty dismissing Ronald - there's a nice easy / baroque jazz instrumental (for those that like that kind of thing) tucked away amongst the girl choir stuff:
