    Went to a charity shop today during lunchtime for a pre-holiday dig... found these but upon listening doubt any of them will stay around... read Alain Goraguer on the arranger credits on the Marie Laforet LP... but it's some sort of Charleston 40's vibe on those tunes...

    Haven't had much time to add to the recent finds threads but here is what has turned up in the charity shops around my way recently.

    First up grabbed a bunch of random Latin records from Mexico, Panama and Venezuela, a few of them are keepers for now but suspect most are heading back into the world at some point soon.


    Pretty much all keepers in this pile, apart from the top right which is a combination of jazz and shouting in German.


    Some wee ones and odd flexis. Was hella chuffed to pull the Johnny Cash 45 that is 1958 original out of a pile of polka and novelty 45s last week. Top middle is a flexi from Royal Delftware, haven't listened to it yet as it has curled slightly and needs flattening out, no details on discogs - Head Gardener have you come across this before? Dizzy is a bit on the rough side but plays ok.
    Middle is a pile of flexis promoting the church via the medium of flexi discs by a company called GRF - Gospel Recording Fellowship, again couldn't find out much about them online but was odd enough to pick up.
    Bottom row is Australian copy of Dusty's Son of a preacher man, middle is flexi for Younger's Special, and to the right is Neil Young - Southern man / After the gold rush.

    I did the rounds this afternoon: antique stores, charities, second hand shops...

    Managed to acquire these for very cheap - it's almost an early Christmas present:

    I also found these which cost me a little bit more but still very reasonable:

    Had a listen to their album on bandcamp https://khruangbin.bandcamp.com/albu...ng-n-s-america
    Not bad but a bit BGM for me ...
    Always good to hear something different though ...

    that's a lovely little EP ... I'd be very happy to find one of those.

    Finishing up the twaddle........




    I found an OG of 'I Put A Spell On You' in a local antiques centre. It's not in great condition, even after some PVA, but I love the feel of it - the heavyweight sleeve, the robust vinyl and who doesn't secretly like the authenticity lent by a bit of crackle? As previously mentioned, I can't leave Francoise LPs alone and Rob had another one in yesterday, so that accompanied me home. Also from Rob's were the bottom two. Haven't had chance to listen to either yet, I've got a bit of a backlog again, but I'm home alone this weekend, minding our pooch, so I reckon I'll be able to have a bit of a listening session later. Unless I decide to watch 'The Sinner', which was mint last week.





    Interweb acquisitions here, so slightly cheating. I sold a couple of bits on eBay to finance a present for my prettier half and ended up with a bit of surplus, so was able to treat myself to a copy of 'Seventh Heaven' off Discogs. Peak LLevan for me. Amazing tune. Got the Go-Betweens 12" off eBay, pretty much perfect pop. I like the sort of size and scale of those mid-80s productions. And, bottom row is the smoking gun evidence of my Khruang-binge (you're welcome). As I said, I broke a personal rule in buying the 7" and I do feel slightly dirty, but I love the Vince Guaraldi original so much and the Khruangbin version is both respectful, affectionate and dope.


    Right, let's see whether United can score 7 more, or whether (as I predict) they'll take the foot off the gas, bring Fellaini on and end up clinging on for 3-2 win.

    I have several times mentioned Piero Umiliani's "Africa" trilogy (on CD) as faves. Here is a close cousin. Some track overlap (different arrangements?).

    The shop - Diabolik - is a 10 minute drive from here. All new vinyl. A very impressive selection of soundtracks and libes.

    John and Kym (dealers) have stalls of pre-loved vinyl outside. John took 5 of my B-division new wave LPs. That covered the $28 for the Piero. Which was on sale (see the labels)!

    Other stuff on sale too. I can't justify buying all of them. Also, I should husband my funds in case some of the non-sale stuff ends up on sale. Terry Riley's "Persian Surgery Dervishes" is tucked away there somewhere...

    A Tony Hancock ultra-raer!

    Also, of course, a Stirling Moss ultra-raer. And a John Freeman ultra-raer.

    Anyway, congratulations. I hope that it is all that you hoped it would be.

    I have waited years to find this, and here it is, finally! In my grasp and spinning on my turntable. Christmas may officially begin!

    Wow! You must've fallen hard if they've, err, turned you...

    Was looking at a copy this afternoon, but wanted to check it first - very expensive for a "wee one". So bought a 10" by Andrew Wasylyk instead - forthcoming LP on Athens Of The North is gorgeous.

    “ Winter “ and “ Dawn Vision “ from that Howard Riley (CD) I can tolerate. In fact I have them on a fAir amount.

    Quick round-up from me, and I apologise in advance for the blurriness of a couple of the pics. There's nowt wrong with your vision, it's me not being able to stand still enough when taking the pics.


    I've been having a right clear-out, ruthless (that's my label). Took loads of stuff down the market last weekend and have also set a similar amount aside to give away as Freebies, which I hope to be able to sort out next week (then all the packages will have a fair chance of landing before Christmas)





    These were all from charity shops on the same afternoon. First three were from the Heart Foundation shop on my way home. Spare of the breaktastic RPM soundtrack (so there will be one available in my next Freebies thing) and I haven't had the Last Tango In Paris soundtrack pop up in ages, so I'll hang on to that one I reckon. Groove Holmes was one that I dropped in the bag to trade off down the market, it was just a bit too pedestrian. 'Angela' is Xian folky stuff - Arran jumpers, beads and sandals. Though I had fairly high hopes as other stuff I've had on the Profile label has been interesting, this was a bit too twee, so it's going in the Freebies as well!






    Shakin' like Stevens on this one (Snow is falling, all around me, children playing, having fun...…..etc). Top left is Lalomie Washburn's 'Manpower' (slightly different mix to the LP), which is the bomb. Top right is Gwen Guthrie 'Love In Moderation' / 'Padlock' - Larry Levan vibes. Felt LP was from trading with MacTheRuss, who made a right effort to find me summat that I liked! And I've been on a bit of a Grace Jones kick lately - obsessed with YouTube performances of 'Slave To The Rhythm'.






    First three were the result of trading down the market last weekend. Howard Riley looked like my kind of thing, but it's a tad avant-garde for my tastes. If I was married, it would surely have bothered the wife, as it is, the girlfriend, dog, houseflies, starlings on the bird feeder and hedgehog that was trying to hibernate have fled. If anyone with higher tolerance for free-ness would like to trade for it, by all means PM me. Please do PM me. Please? Thought I'd give 'Spirit of Eden' another try as this is a lovely copy and I'm feeling more laid back and in tune with nature at the moment. REM is self-explanatory and I've fallen hard for Khruangbin (don't tell anyone, but I've ordered their Christmas 7"!).






    Back to photos that were taken with a hand that was more Wobble than it was Jah. Think these are fairly self-explanatory. AC/DC is for my cousin, the rest are residing chez moi. Seem to be doing Ok on my mission to pick up Depeche Mode stuff now. It's landing fairly steadily, without costing me too much (which I've probably just jinxed).






    Last one for now (I've got some more to post up later). These all came from Rob's last Friday. The Dream Express one is sort of cheesy Euro disco, reminded me of The Three Degrees in parts, not quite a keeper. I basically can't pass by a Francoise LP. Don't see that many of them around and they've steadily crept up in price. Back when all this was just fields, you'd find them for, at the most, £3. And nice to find a great selection of Nina's tunes, despite this being a later issue.




    Back later, with more twaddle.

    A big box of singles turned up at the auction with some nice bits that I either didn't already have
    or just liked the look of, there were lots of 60's pop/rock but these ones caught my interest more.




    An unusual Xmas related 7" on a great looking label I had no knowledge of, I had kinda hoped the John Carr Quintet might be
    somehow related to the legendary Jazz man Ian Carr but despite Ian actually having a brother it turns out his name is Chris,
    damn... and I couldn't find out anything online about this band or release.







    Original UK EP from 1958







    I have Yin & Yan's album which has some great spoken word samples, this promo 7" has the same 2 tracks
    on each side for shops to give vinyl the hard sell from your local friendly record pusher.









    UK promo from 1973





    An obscure 60's TV theme from the guy behind Jason King, The Avengers etc



    great old card sleeve from the early 60's - I assume it is as it had Gerry & The Pacemakers in it!


    half a dozen odds 'n' ends

















    Mildly amusing record from 1982 - signed by the band of merry men







    Sadly not signed but on nice clear vinyl and a poster sleeve with a bloody great un-removable sticker on the front!
