  • Finds March

    Yesterday I bought Pat Williams Treshold, a record I knew nothing about. Turned out to be good big band jazzfunk or something. Nice flutework and stuff...

    Not had any spare funds for ages but started off buying again this week with a purchase of Leyland's finest thrashers classic cut of Ghostbusters with both the normal (right) and deleted (left) sleeves for a lot less than the £30 they have been going for lately

            Yes almost a rip-off, only he switched the face for a fish

            I like "rainbow", but the track that gets me is "Beauty within the beast". Haven't gotten further than those two yet as side one's been on repeat
            What's the comp? More similar stuff/recommendations?

              Picked up a pretty good soul compilation on the strength of it having a cover of my favourite Elton John track (Bad Side of The Moon) and also arrangements by Barbara Moore. It's Silver Soul Volume 1 on DJM, 1970.

              Anyway the artists featured are: Birds Of A Feather (they have the arrangements by Barbara Moore), Una Valli, The Flames (both from South Africa) and The Chants and Pic & Bill (UK I think)..... Good solid covers of classics and a few originals.

              I've found out a little about the artists but anyone know anything else? I'm no expert on soul artists

                  Thanks - I do love a bit of context

                  Also picked up a copy of RD Burman's Dum Maro Dum / I love you EP 45 for the grand total of 50p..... don't really expect to find that kind of stuff in charity shops around here! Its a great couple of tracks that are new to me.

                  Another single caught my eye - loved the cover - Ricchi e Poveri - Rischiatutto. 2 tracks from what I suspect is an Italian children's TV show. Il Fantasma is rather charming - in a Bacharach kind of way!

                    Rischiatutto is an Italian game show of some description - is this the theme tune that's on the 45? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uI2P4jA780c

                      I wish

                      No - both vocal things by 'Ricchi e Poveri' - don't know their connection to the show....

                        Philidelphia Record exchange big Dyke Folk Jamboree

                        Spent the last two days In Philadelphia and between seeing the Liberty Bell and soaking up the great permanent collection of the Museum of art managed to spend an hour down South Street (in the record district, according to the where to go go and what to see guide)

                        Philly Record Exchange was the first port of call, where the proprietor informed me "the founder of Olivia records brought a lot of the label's overstock)

                        So sealed copies of the following for about a dollar a piece

                        Cris Williamson The Changer and the Change Olivia 1975 (second press)
                        I recently posted this up on the bins section because Waterfall was the basis for an RJD2 track. Must say its a solid listen throughout with banjo work from Grey Today scribe Woody Simmons on one track too.

                        Lavender Jane Loves Women Woman Wax Works 1974
                        Great private press looking album with Kay Gardner amongst the ranks. Apparently the soundtrack to Roll Over (must IMDB that one, can't say i'm familiar with that gem) Great floaty SSW folk with nice flute flourishes from Gardner

                        Cris Williamson
                        ST Olivia Repress 1981
                        Her first album on Ampex from 1970, with a mouthwatering array of session men. (Chuck Rainey, Grady Tate, Kermit Moore, Eric Gale ect) Knew it from the J Dilla sample but a consistent Psych lite folk album with some up tempo dancers.

                        Holly Near
                        Hang In There Redwood Records 1973
                        Debut album that has a mellow feel despite the heavy subject matter she deals with . Great art work too

                        Kristin Lems Oh Mama ! Carolsdatter Productions 1978
                        Yet to listen too it, but Moog, Flute and Arp make it an interesting addition.


                        And some other bits , all less than $8


                        Linda Hopkins
                        ST RCA 1972
                        An upbeat Showtunes soul album . Great voice but over done somewhat. Bob James and Wade Marcus arrangements for Shake a hand and Its my Beat make it a keeper

                        Bobbi Humphrey
                        Satin Doll Blue Note 1974
                        No Introduction needed , quality flute jazz from the Mitzell rnks

                        Donny Hathaway Extensions of a man Atco 1973
                        My first Donny album in the wild. Great tracks .... The Slums is my favorite, a great slab of conscious funk

                        Eric Andersen Tin Can Alley Vanguard 1868
                        Over orchestrated on my first listen. May be a grower.

                        Women Folk Man o Man RCA 1966
                        Heard Their take on A times they are a changing on a Mix CD a while back, hoping for a similar vibe.

                        Dick Grove Improvisational Course Volume IV (Modal Improvisation) 1976
                        Open 4/4 drum breaks, thats all.

                        Lalo Schifrin The Cinccinati Kid MGM 1965

                        Les McCann Bucket o' Grease Limelight 1966
                        Origianl press for $2 . Great song choices with a latin flavour. Meaty drums too


                        Lets hope for more Black Gold

                            Soulfire is quite good in my view - if a little derivitive

                              Really like that Cris Williamson album - think I posted up about it way back when.... but didn't get as much as you from Lavender Jane - think I may have got rid of that one so no chance of a reappraisal! The cover did look great though, I recall.
