      That's a great album. One of the best albums to have an instrumental about toilets. I'm putting that out there.

          I do like that Ruby and Romantics, lovely flute. I first heard the song through the Johnny and the Attractions rocksteady cover version

            almost missed this euro free jazz private press LP, was in with some huge crates of mostly 80s pop and lightweight dance stuff (I bought a Tears For Fears LP to flip and feel disappointed with myself). Had looked through already, as had someone after me, then I spotted it as I was paying. Free jazz isn't my thing, so speak up if of interest. This is more the mucking about with electric guitars type rather than fire in a pet shop if that helps.

                    I only knew the Johnny and the Attractions version so you can chalk me up as another fan of Ruby now.

                      non-oofs:

                      The Little Angels National Folk Ballet Of Korea - Mother Of Mine - kiddie pop choir (possibly still going?) founded by Sun Myung Moon (of the "Moonies" church). Rubbish (and potentially worrying) version of "I'm Getting Married In The Morning (Get Me To the Church On Time)" on the b-side
                      Jungle Juice - The Zoo Gang / Monkey Business - theme to "The Zoo Gang", I expect the fans of the 70s here will know this one. Evidently was meant to be the Paul & Linda McCartney track, but some hold up with the release of that meant it had to be re-recorded.

                      Two Gerry Anderson EPs, not had any of these before, they seemed to have churned out loads of releases

                      From the crates with the Catalogue Antwerpen LP, George "Harmonica" Smith - Arkansas Trap - missing the sleeve unfortunately. Dutch reissue of a Deram LP. Produced by Mike Vernon (who then set up Blue Horizon) and it has that Blue Horizon/Fleetwood Mac sound (band here is Bacon Fat)

                      some maybe lesser-seen easy:
                      John & Thelma Keating - Songs Of Love - John showing off his wife's voice. Folk with orchestral arrangements, Scarborough Fair, etc plus a few more adventurous ones - En Aranjuez Con Tu Amor, one of Villa Lobos Bachianas Brasileiras, etc. Not sure if a keeper
                      The Polished Brass Of London - Top Brass - took a punt on this MfP one based on the presence of "Summertime" and it's a good latin-y version. Rest a bit smooth/show tune-y. Some UK jazzers/sessioners playing with members of an orchestra.
                      The Fluegel Knights - A Sign Of The Times - picked up another of their albums recently, never saw these before despite their tracks being on those common CBS samplers. Mellow and parpy.
                      Reginald Kilbey - The Sound Of Strings - sleeve is cooler than the record. This is super-smooth old-style pre-pop easy listening, but actually quite nice and interesting arrangements, thought I was listening to a classical record at points.

                      proper money now
                      John Gregory - Man For All Seasons - no introduction needed, thanks to the BIN section of the forum
                      Nick Ingman - Terminator - also very well known, never found one of these in the wild, this was a reasonable 20 quid on Discogs, was prompted to look by seeing someone on Twitter find one in a charity (they didn't know it)
                      Lettermen - First Class - again known here, this was a fiver or something on eBay. I hadn't heard it, so was expecting the typical WMS/cabaret covers record with maybe one or two "groovy" tracks, but this is something different and more interesting. Definitely "proper band" material
                      Frank Perry - Deep Peace - he was the drummer in Black Cat Bones (of that QE2 record / Paul Kossoff fame) but got fired (too jazz!). This full-on new age meditation stuff, but really drone-y and focused, not wishy-washy background stuff. Recommended a few times on Waxidermy and you know how chilled out they all are over there

                        Not a link for the cheap BIN section - Craig Moerer currently has one listed for $215

                          I really like the track 'No time for Jesus' with it's flute, Spanish sounding guitar and the two woodsticks being hit together.

                                A few years back I was mad keen to get "Irin-Ajo"by Third World (Kabaka/Winwood/Amao). Here it is for $1!

                                Except that it is a truncated version.

                                And I'm not sure now why I found it so compelling.

                                In fact, side two is just one big near miss. Some of the other tracks are truncated. None of them quite hit the mark. The Don Cherry track is nice; that will decide whether I keep the LP.

                                Perhaps I should listen to side one...
