      I visited the charities a bit this week. Brought these with me. Nothing really stands out maybe Martin Circus but have to give it another listen. And I don't know why I keep picking up John William.

        I guess they were issued to radio stations in the late 60's early 70's? but there is little info on them online to confirm.


        When the BBC's music library in Manchester decided that their Mood/Library vinyl was surplus to requirments, they sent boxes of KPM/DeWolfe albums to the Central Grams Library in London. In amongst them were plenty of these Coded Music Scheme albums, all in the generic green sleeve with typed info sheet attached. Some were just actual Library LPs with CMS labels stuck over the original ones, usually on Amphonic or Cavendish but the majority on Mozart Edition. Others (like some of those pictured) were made in-house and featured a bewildering array of tracks taken from other Library albums (one contains about half of the tracks on "French Pop" on Tele Music), or from commercially released pop albums (another features a few tracks from the Neal Ford & The Fanatics album on Hickory) or from other unknown sources (such as "The Supersisters"' "Sweet Suicide". Unreleased commercially until only a few years ago). Presumably these all fell under the able-to-use-very-cheaply-as-background badge at the time...

          And while we are in that general cobbled area, Joe Gladwin (more famous for playing Wally Batty in Last of the Summer Wine) with a bit of help from Dvořák and The London Brass Players – What Have They Done To My Christmas?:

          Freshly plucked from Dyscworld in Scarborough, Ron Goodwin's soundtrack for Ken Annakin's Monte Carlo or Bust! The heyday of the ensemble cast comedy caper movie.

          Monte Carlo or Bust!

          Also from Dyscworld, The Romantic World Of Anthony Newley. I'm not sure how Pop Goes The Weasel or Yes! We Have No Bananas qualify as romantic but still for 50p, who am I to argue. Great tash as well.

                I found a Coded Music Scheme LP last year, Lord Thames provided a bit of info: "they're essentially a precursor to the BBC Radioplay label, providing non-needletime music to fill up airtime on the Beeb when they couldn't play proper records due to Musician's Union rules - used extensively on Radio 2, BBC local radio and the test card in the 60s and 70s"

                I have been meaning to record the best tracks and then send it over to him. Sure he'd be very interested in yours too if you're feeling generous!

                    The local chazzers were well stocked today, though not with very much that was to my taste.

                    The Kriesler comp is all Japanese. Most of the titles look a bit flacid. It was the Tokyo Cuban Boys that were the draw.

                    I suspect that the Golden Sounds Orchestra is Japanese. They or their namesake have a Discogs entry that has a jazz component. The draw on this is a take on Mambo No.5. If it doesn't deliver I know someone who will want it for the sleeve.

                    I've mentioned this Eric Jupp a few times here. It is a spare. I am determined to get the key track onto a swap CD this year.

                      Any such swap cd will largely comprise groovy dollar bin garnerings. Much of it from this year.

                          I was out for my first chazza trawl in a fair while yesterday. Headed out to the eastern and southern regions of Auckland which have served me well in the past. Did 15 of the buggers and found naff all aside from a great pork and watercress pie in Pukekohe (will shop again).
                          But got talking to the people at a few places and they reckon it's because of lockdown. We went hard as hell here for six weeks and pretty much knocked it on it's head. Not only that we've had a drop in our expected death rate - not as many accidents and falls - which I'm told is being felt in lower numbers of deceased estates than usual. COVID-19 gets all one way or another.
                          So, FWW, here's me haul after whittling out the failed punts (I had high hopes for the gospel banjo LP, but without vocals it's just banjo).
                          Goldfinger is UK press, Gale G LPs always have a decent popcorn track, the OST is Xstian and has a groovy way-wah led instru, and Jungle Jazz is a minty spare. 45s weren't much chop.
                          I'll try post more often, but it's a bit lame trying to engage from down here when there's like 12 hour gaps between comments.
                          No time to Run is a great little record. (two different covers to it too) nice finds

                            Wow..... and an OOOOOFFFF there for the Spider 45. He went on to lead Chrysalis (a one shot MGM band that is great) SStrange that the single only came out in the Uk. Its a great gem.

                              There were a couple of cheapies from Dusty Groove in the post today.

                              Following in Head Gardener's footsteps with TSWCIFTC.

                              I know "The Morning After" from PATP. Am curious about the rest of it.

                                The local record shop (Mudshark in Bangor ) Re opened after lockdown and was lovely to have a rummage. A few usual suspects pulled from the Cheap racks and a long time want at a nice price too


                                Pretty Things Parachutes (Rare Earth Uni Pack gate fold) At under the going rate I wasn't going to pass on it, a lovely varied Lp that is well worth the hype , just wish some of the songs were longer

                                Neil Young Harvest (Reprise Uk With all the Trimmings and insert) Wasn't going to Leave it for a quid

                                Shaky Jake Harris The Devil's Harmonica (Polydor) again a quid punt. Mint records but battered cover. A real mixed bag of styles on it. John Mayall on Production duties and Freddie Robinson on Axe Duties.... Cool Blues with some nice meaty drums
