  • o-shogatsu finds

    Finally got the camera back and can post some of these. The African stuff is from the Disk Union sale (I'd heard rumours that one of the big collectors here was offloading a bunch of stuff and it turned up, of all places, in my local branch). Everything else is from an afternoon trawling round Nagoya.


    Two missing pieces of the Franco puzzle. The Live European Tour one has fake audience applause dubbed on, but contains at least tw bona fide Franco classics. Live Chez Un Deux Trois also has a couple of killer tracks. Little 'uns are Linda Yamamoto, Emi Jackson, Tempters, Golden Half and a Wada Akiko spare


    Japanese Jazz: New Herd big band frenzy, Sato Masahiko solo is lovely, Kenji Mori a keeper and Air is an upgrade


    Metempsychosis is a long-term want crossed off the list. Nice to have a clean copy of Tauhid at last, if only an 80s German press. Lee Konitz LP is a winner and Requiem for Che is a spare


    Two Ocoras, a Vogue and a Lyrichord. Score!


    Jazz bits: Herbie Mann is great with Attila Zoller on guitar. Two more Mals for the racks. Blood and Guts is my favourite. Japan Suite is hot!

    Nice, those pics... You are a Franco connaisseur ? I have a few LPs of his that may be of your interest. That African gear is findable here - the Belgian Congo connection, dig...
    CORSO: What kind of advice you got for politicians?

      Well done mate, I'm pleased for you. It really is pot-luck which branch of DU they put these collections into and I reckon you were due a win.

      Just like your football team...
      If you're looking for a pristine copy then this isn't the one for you. The vinyl looks like someone has polished their brickwork with it and the label has been ruined by some fool with a pen.

        Yeah, originally most of the Franco, Veve, Trio Madjesi etc stuff I was after came from Belgian or French sellers online. After a while I cottoned on the the fact that "Lingala Pops", as soukous was known here, was huge in Japan in the late 80s/early 90s, with bands like Viva La Musica or Zaiko Langa Langa being flown over to record and tour. Shops like Baobab in Osaka and El Sur in Tokyo still fly the flag, but most of the big collectors are starting to prune their shelves and there could be some more big finds to come. I was lucky to get the tip-off from the owner in El Sur, but even then it was weird that so many of the LPs ended up two stops away from me. I'm off to Shinjuku today and who knows ... maybe there's more to com?

          That "Emy Jackson" "Cryin In A Storm" is a good track!

            Can keep an eye out for you if you need one

            I'm sure I'm not the only one on here but I've spent an inordinate amount of time trawling the B-sides of Japanese 60s and early 70s pop for proportionately little return. The good'uns are pretty great though, and I never tire of those pic covers
