    vinyl finds in a few charity shops and one bought in... a record shop!


    This took my eye, not listened to it yet but it was cheap as chips (small bag)



    Not sure quite how many times I will sit ALL THE WAY through this album, but I will try...



    Sweet charity shop find and it's playable but is pretty scratched




    A nice pair, fnarr fnarr, of belly dancing LP's from the 60's - I just love the inner sleeve of this one





    this pair of middle east related 7"s were in the same box






    this bunch of albums were unsurprisingly also in the same box but different shop






    I bought this brilliant album new, I've had the CD since 1997 but it's such a personal fave it's lovely having it on vinyl

      Those belly dance LPs are eye-catching. Sometimes such LPs have good not-so-obviously-dance-oriented tracks on them. Anything like that there? And how do they shape up generally?

      I caved and bought Terry Riley "Persian Surgery Dervishes". The first disc is the pick of the pair IMHO.

      Ravi Shankar's "Charley" looks promising. "Madness" (see my swap CD from a while back) still gets played here. Web buy for about A$10.

        Cugat, Meriwether and Latin Souls were from an excursion today.

        Got to love the Cugat sleeve. Possibly too early, though. I don't know Meriwether; punted on the basis of "Watermelon Man". Latin Souls has been reissued. Otherwise $1 for this would have been a bargain. Possibly it was anyway - there is a very nice track from it on Youtube. $5 all up.

          they are both OK, the one with the obvious t*ts has just earned me a 3 day ban on FB so I should know better really,
          I actually thought the other one with the fancy inner was more graphic but I know nowt obviously, when will I learn?

            Did someone complain or was it done automatically by some algorithm?

              Bud Shank - California Dreamin'. Chazza purchase from earlier in the month. Just cleaned it up and thought it worth a mention. This is Easy from the very toppest top drawer. Chet Baker also featured. Despite some lingering fireside crackle this is beautiful.



              Della Reese - Who Is She And What Is She To You / If Loving You Is Wrong I Don't Want To Be Right Idled away a couple of impromptu hours in some real world record shops yesterday while the ladies of the house were doing some sales shopping. Was happy just to browse but this one caught my attention. A great way to finish the year. As far as I know I hadn't heard these interpretations by Della before, although they appear to be from a 1972 album of hers that is one my Discogs wantlist. Who Is She is great, but the B side is the track for me. Move over Luther and Millie, this is now my favourite version of this great song. A bargain too.

                that Bud Shank looks lovely.
                I found a very "well loved" copy of the Della Reese album earlier in the year. It's not as soulful as I'd hoped, I need to check but I think you have the best two tracks there on the 45.

                  both are Mohammed El-Bakkar - the second one is a comp. I've got 4 out of the 6 in the series, they're not bad (and I've read positive things from people into Egyptian music) but they're not my favourites. Have partly kept them for the outrageous covers. They're not necessarily belly dancing music as such, just Egyptian music, from memory mostly vocal

                      Why I am not surprised? Homophobic, racist comments and pictures are allowed but the picture of a woman's chest is not. Bravo FB

                        could have been worse - I was banned for 3 months earlier this year for posting a pic of Electric Ladyland and you know how many tits there are on that!

                          Well, I reckon, if 2 tits gets you banned for 3 days, a cover that bans you for 90 days must contain 60 tits.

                            Yes, too early for Cugat, there's the occasional thing (I like Cha cha cha) but the 60s run of five albums from Cugi's coktails to Dance party is where his most abiding stuff is at. Apart from his drawings, of course.

                              I'M the tit for posting it in the first place

                                Where there is overlap the "Africa" versions are better IMHO.

                                There are way too many surface glitches here for new vinyl.
