  • July 2021 finds

    I had intended to post photos of some recent acquisitions. But until my computer and my phone decide to talk with each other you will have to make do with some text on the subject.

    $1 for "Winifred Atwell" by the lady herself. "Bossa Nova Boogie" might find its way into a mix if I can be bothered to hang onto the LP for long enough.
    $1 for "Holiday in Majorca" by Los Manueles. Any life to the mambos that were promised on the sleeve was smothered by strings.
    $1 for "Latin in the Night" by David Whitaker. Well executed if rather generic EZ.
    $1 for "Leroy Anderson in Latin America" by Marco Rizo + piano + Orch. I can only imagine that Leroy wasn't there for very long.
    $1 for "Action Fiji" by the Fiji Military Forces Band, the Fiji Mocambo Hotel Group and the Nasilau Tropicana Group. The latter two groups give the thing a holiday souvenir vibe.
    $1 for "This love affair" by Susan Howe. This is a local private press. I had a copy once before. I realised as I was giving it away that I had been listening to it at the wrong speed (it is a 45 LP) - she sounded very butch.
    $1 for "Polynesian Paradise" by Phil Moore and Orch. Most likely the pick of the $1 finds. On first listen it was a bit bland. But its got a rep so I'll give it time. Apparently issued under licence on a local budget label. Not listed on discogs.
    $7 for "Jazz and rock - time to play music". Jamey Aebersold. I've only listened to side one. "Snap, crackle and pop" would be the pick and it is there on Youtube.

      Nice find! Listen again up loud. It's immersive and rather wonderful at times.

        Here is a selection of my recent pick ups. Been out and about a bit more the last few weeks (although a couple of these have been mailbox finds).

        The Stewart Ross I have wanted for a while purely for the sleeve as the record is less psychedelic than the cover would have you believe. Pulled the ISB out from the same box in a chazza in Callander along with a bunch of Gaelic language LPs and EPs on labels like Thistle and Beltona. Seems like it was someone's collection so the ISB stood out like a sore thumb.

        The Tullis Russell Mills LP is
        ​a brass band from a paper mill in Fife. Picked this up for a track called 'Mexican Shuffle' which the liner notes described as 'lively' and mentioned their lead percussionist doing more on that track and it's pretty nice in an easy kind of way. Picked up the first Donovan LP on Pye and his Celia and the Seals 45 on Dawn at the same time and that EP pictures on Gay Time records (a label I had never come across before although a look on 45cat and Discogs has revealed that it was also responsible for the first Black Lace release). Alas Frank Welshman (sounds like a Carry On character) is big standard country and folk club circuit type sounds.

        The Lonnie Donegan LP was picked up after seeing a couple of tracks mentioned on here, in particular 'Born in Bethlehem' and although I can't quite take to the whole LP there are a couple of absolutely cracking tracks. The Glen Mason and Tommy Whittle (which doesn't seem to have uploaded for whatever reason - actually might have fixed that now) were also snagged cheap online and suit my current fix of mild jazz/exotica type sound leanings. Possibly spurred on by finding that Ronnie Ross LP at a new animal charity in Falkirk.

        My other recent obsession has been Karl Denver and the above pic only shows a few of the 45s of his I've picked up. I had been ignoring him for years but after hearing 'Cry A Little Sometime' which is a kind of beat ballad I thought I'd give him a shot and discovered 'Zimba' on his LP which I see everywhere I go and now own the damn thing (the LP is poor apart from 'Zimba' which is an outstanding slice of exotica completely at odds with the rest of the album). So I decided to pick up what I find and see what turn up - which is varied and often utterly insane. 'Highland Fling', 'Swanee River', 'A Little Love A Little Kiss' and 'Pastures of Plenty' have all bowled me over. Oh and 'Lonesome Traveller' from the Sleepy Lagoon EP. There are some gems on his early Decca 45s alongside the Jim Reeves tribute type tracks.

        There have been a few other embarrassing pick ups and a massive job lot of Gaelic vinyl from Facebook marketplace which kept me going before the summer. Now getting ready to.head up to Inverness, Ullapool and the Western Isles for the next 10 days so can see what I can turn up - my wife has very kindly organised activities next Saturday morning with our daughter to give me.a few hours in the local record shop
