  • February Finds

    These are probably the best of the albums and singles I decided to keep out of the auction and charity shop finds in late Jan early Feb.




    The great Eric Sykes & Hattie Jacques made their only album of songs and sketches in 1962.







    I took a punt on this as I liked it's handmade sleeve, turned out to be a very limited private pressing (500 copies) of a band doing their own pretty good take on The Who's rock opera.







    I have several AiW records but had not come across this American one before, I dig the sleeve.



    Another one I picked up for it's sleeve was this 1972 promo album teaching new employees of the optician chain Dolland & Aitchison how to sell specs.





    I won this in the same auction lot that had what turned out to have the 1907 football 78rpm lurking at the back of the box, £6 well spent.










    A mid 60's folk singer I had not heard of before, her version of Brown Girl In The Ring has different lyrics to the Boney M version we know.






    Really nice chilled out Jazz on Soul Note that was only released on vinyl in Italy.






    This was a £2 charity shop find with a whole bunch of their singles at 50p a pop and it's near mint!






    Canadian stereo sampler from 1961 that has many helpings of cheese.




    1960 protest folk EP which it must be one of the earliest records to feature the ban the bomb symbol on it's cover.



    New Zealand EP from 1967

    Interesting finds HG, as always.

    The nuclear disarmament symbol was designed in 1958 so you might be right about its appearance on the Songs from Aldermaston EP.

        Our house-guest has offered me some records. By far the most notable of which is this - "Worthless Trash" by the Vacants. Circa 1977. There is a punk-oriented blog that rates it as the real deal. Apparently not released in the UK or the USA.

        If I am to judge by some of the track titles ("Dead Girl", "Half Man Woman") the themes of the lyrics will be of their time.

        Guess which of the group went on to join the Pretenders.

          Everytime I see that Lp, it raises a smile.

            Here is today's haul:

            Ropey SA covers of early 70s pop. I suspect that "Perfect for dancing" is a brand name rather than a description of the music. Couldn't be bothered with listening to both discs.

            This includes hebrew chants and negro spirituals. I was hoping for fear or ecstasy. But it is cozy cozy cozy.

            I have now heard a domra ensemble.

            This is on the Mainstream label for a reason.

            Yes, that is Miguel Salerno of "Astrokat" non-fame.

            "Viking" led me to hope that this was a NZ jazz rarity. I suppose that it qualifies as 'cool', but I think I discern older styles. Interesting rather than compelling. Someone has posted the title track on Youtube.

            Surprise find of the day! It was a makeweight pulled on the basis of a Libaek production.

            It turns out that I can tolerate bluegrass in small quantities. Those discogs asks have got to be a joke though, eh?

              Looking through the Dink Union website I notices a very cheap Japanese 1st edition of Led Zeppelin 1 with misprint. The price was insanely cheap, so I decided to take a gamble.

              Yesterday it arrived. Sleeve taped up, but record very playable, with a few pops.

              Gamble paid off.

              For a change.

                Taped up so you can't see inside the gatefold?

                Are you tempted to remove the tape? I can never resist...

                  No, not at all. The sleeve is completely openable and has notes and lyrics. The taping appears to have been done to prevent the sleeve from any further knocks.

                  If you'd like to see the inside I'm happy to take more photos, though I suspect they're already on Discogs.

                  I don't think I'll be touching the tape. I could end up with a pile of dust and regrets.

                    Nadia Cattouse has a good folk voice, unfortunately her discography doesn't really do it justice. On the "Earth Mother" LP she's backed by the Pentangle rhythm section, although the second side is from a live show.

                    "Songs Of Grief And Glory" is her (and a couple of guys) singing songs from a BBC song writing competition. Unfortunately the tracks alternate between her and the other two guys, and they have that poppy folk revival style that's really dated now. Keep meaning to just record her tracks from it

                    (Also pop trivia, she's the mother of Mike Lindup from Level 42)

                        Second hand albums I have bought recently




                        US compilation of Bell artists, great old phone spinning wheel matching artist to their track








                        German double compilation of the 70's US harmony group.







                        Late 60's Scottish family folk - then 12 year old blonde haired Russell on the mandolin is still making music today under the name Other







                        This country rock group released this collection of covers in the mid 1970's, also featured a pre-Liverpool FC player in their ranks*



                        *maybe





                        Phil Collins may not have required a jacket for his record, but this bluesman didn't even need his surname on his.




                        Great 3rd album from the hard rocking blues band.

                          That's probably all you need. I have 3 LPs and while the harmonies are expertly executed, they never give me the chills that Quarteto Em Cy do.

                          They never sound as if they're having that much FUN.
