  • May Finds

    It's been a while since I went digging anywhere and have since moved to Scotland, but rather than go back to England just yet I found myself digging in Wales, however just while I was visiting friends there. These were found in a handful of charity shops, nothing too shabby & there were a load of cheap folk EP's I couldn't resist picking up and I am certainly now the owner of far too many singles on the Cambrian label.


    Nice poster I couldn't persuade my mate to part with even for some lovely Beatles albums, can't blame him.



    £1 boxes





    No shortage of action! or girls! on this cheesy mid 70's film soundtrack I'd not come across before, though it should have come with a warning sticker, contains Robin Askwith.








    Really enjoying this one from 1968.




    Sadly no paper bag sleeve with this flexi but it does feature the first recording by whistling Roger Whittaker under the pseudonym Hank And The Mellowmen.







    I couldn't find anything online about this pair of acetates, one a 5" the other 10".







    One of only a couple of singles ever released by the Daily Telegraph newspaper, narrated by a suitably plummy voiced lady.








    A flexi-disc personal message to cereal growers about the different varieties of barley, nice postal sleeve.



    Another flexi-disc, this one is narrated by the English character actor Vernon Greeves, okay yah.





    Maybe it's because of dull songs like this that politicians are not releasing singles anymore, this one features the leader of the Liberal Party throughout the 60's.







    Best of the bunch of 50p EP's I picked up, nicely signed on the back.

        Fascinating. Have seen the cover many times but didn't know the back story.

        "it wasn’t really an Ellen Foley record. I mean, it really was more of a Clash record."

        Have you listened yet?

          No, not listened yet. I might not listen at all. I have a table at the record fair this Sunday. I'll sell if offered 15 times what I paid for it.

            Since we moved we are further from the dollar bins that have been my Sunday grazing spot these last few years. That and a recalcitrant car mean that I haven't been there much.

              I just realised that I missed out on Max Greger's "In the night".

              I'm not going back for it.

                I had to do several cartwheels to read that post. Now I feel quite queasy.

                  Both her albums from that period are pretty common carboot fodder. Both are unexceptional, apart from a decent cover of Stupid Girl. It's basically Meatloaf territory. You wouldn't guess members of The Clash were involved and if nothing else it proved they couldn't write songs for other people. I vaguely recall seeing it appear in a 'Buried Treasure' style series, in Record Collector or Mojo or the like, and snorted my derision. Pretty lazy 'buried' treasure hunting!
                  Look it up on discogs, it sells for 20p.

                      The vinyl is perhaps VG+. It is not showing its age the way the sleeve is.

                      $5 for a slew of Kenyon Hopkins numbers.

                      I seem to recall seeing this written up as worth a listen.

                        The Hopkins tracks are from his "Nightmare" LP.

                          Album is worth it just for Incense and Peppermints alone.

                            Not bad Sunday booting finds considering I only went to this one and was there at 7am, by the time I took this pic an hour later it was pretty much all over (for me)




                            The best fiver I spent was on a bundle of jazz books including this early 60's programme which had surprising extras.



                            I guess the guy (it was bound to be a guy, right?) who went to the show made these drawings as he sat tapping his foot.




                            Inside were some beautifully handwritten notes on the show, so I guess he went to the show to review it, maybe for Jazz Mag Monthly?



                            Finding some Scottish sevens was inevitable but I only picked up wheat I hadn't seen or heard of before, I don't just buy any old rubbish!









                            Loved this delightfully daft Celtic-electro-poppy-folk one.










                            It wasn't all Scottish singles however, this signed Irish EP in a fancy sleeve was irresistible.








                            Always nice to find cheap 60's singles in good sleeves.







                            Three 'pound a pop' albums


                            This original UK mono in lovely condition was lurking in a box of Cliff albums.


                            A quite beautiful sleeve.



                            If they were releasing anti-cuts albums in the 80's, I wouldn't be surprised at an anti-vax compilation coming one day.
