    I picked up a lovely stash of old Prog progs - most of which were from 1975 just before my gig-going time, my first was Queen in '77


    someone was certainly out & about a lot in '75


    all '75 - the Wakeman one was King Arthur ON ICE!


    ELP '72 + '74



    3 x early Genesis, including Foxtrot '72 era, The Lamb Lies Down '74 and an envelope with inserts including flexi-disc (Twilight Alehouse)
    and a lovely fold out poster from their Selling England By The Pound in '73





    various Tull tours from '72 to '80

            Needed a bit more work. You could have "...picked up a pretty pleasing pile of old prog progs"

                Finally got to use my store credit at Noise Pollution records. I noticed this there a while back. Heard it on Youtube and left it. Heard it again yesterday...

                  I've got a track from that on one of the two "Afro Blue" CD comps from the 90s which are excellent:

                  https://www.discogs.com/Various-Afro.../master/599413

                  They draw you in with the great sleeves, but Blue Note LPs are often a bit disappointing I find. One or two great tracks, but a lot of filler in many cases. Not heard the whole of that one though...

                    And I've got it on CD (makes a hasty crucifix with a couple of rulers and brandishes it)

                      A desert island disc for me - "tolani" is intense and wild (especially the sax solo). Used to get played regularly for us dancers down at "the Cutting Edge" jazz night - circa 1987

                        Charity Shop trawling continues to be gruelling this year. But a quick last minute lunchtime spin around a few yesterday proved to be worthwhile. I found some reggae!!



                        Squidley Steve - Bad Man
                        Bionic Echo - Digital / Chatty Chatty Mouth
                        Dirty Berty - Keep on Moving / Every Woman


                        Happy with these three despite them all dropping into the early digi/dancehall era. All have some noise but nothing bad - and they are reggae after all, which is usually totally thrashed. Just a shame the donor decided to drop them off at the one (of three) shops in the street that charges £3 for all vinyl as opposed to probably £1 these would have been in the other shops. I left a few others behind for the reasons stated. They were stickered 11/3/19 so had been in the shop just over a week - wonder what I missed?

                          I wish I'd called my son Squidley.

                              Squidly Cole, who is credited on that Dirty Berty 45, is Stranger Cole's son . I am not sure if Squidley Steve is also him. Squidly Cole took his father's name - Wilburn. Discogs does not link Steve to Cole.
