    oh, another day of watching these threads grow with my head in my hands while mumbling 'you lucky, lucky bastards.'

    so just to perk myself up a little I snuck off at lunchtime and managed to snare a pristine copy of Ginette Reno's 'Everything I Am' on Parrot Records.

    nice full-face cover in a Liza Minelli-kinda way.

    it's a glorious day an' all.

            Picked up a couple of bits at a God-fearing charity shop today. Along with Ron Savage's excellent cheesy Freewheelin' LP (see reanimated thread in General Natter), I picked up an album by Georges Moustaki - 'Here's To You' (1972). I see another track made the swap a couple of years ago, but this album is beautiful... what I wondered is does anyone know who sang the female accompaniment through the album? A gorgeous voice - but no credit on the cover. In fact no credit for whoever let rip on the hammond either...... I'll post up a couple of tracks, as they really are worth hearing.

            Also freed:

            Anton Kirkpatrick - Exotic Journal (guitar dexterity from Scotland, 1985 - rather liking it )
            Omaha Sheriff - Come Hell Or Waters High (great band name , produced by Visconti - for me the stand track is 'Show me the sunshine' - twisted soulful mournful ballad)
            Fanny - Mother's Pride (not up there with first albums, but one great track - their version of Randy Newman's 'Last Night I had A Dream')
            'Non-Dairy Creamer' Warner compilation from 1971 (Brownsville Station doing 'Rumble' is genius)
            Valiant Orchestra - glad to find this eventually and it sure lives up to its reputation!
            Swallow - Out of the Nest (second album I have by them and a few great tracks, reminding me of Peddlers - especially the epic and funky 'Why Am I Treated So Bad' which adds some hard-hitting swamp-rock)

              I love the Randy Newman track, how does this version compare?

                Found some stuff today, most notably:

                Willie Lindo - Far and Distant (Klik) lp 1976

                Willie employs effects pedal on "Darker Shade Of Black" to excellent effect (see what I did there)

                Soukous Stars - Gozando

                Ace, with the mighty Dally Kimoko on lead guitar

                http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P7wFN...aynext_from=ML

                Dade Krama - Ancestral Music Of Africa (Akoben) lp 1986

                Traditional African sounds played by a band who I'm trying to figure out are UK based Anyway, it's top notch

                Abdul Tee Jay's Rokoto - Kanka Kuru (Rogue) lp 1989

                Such a sweet sound

                  If Randy's version is all spooky blues country, then Fanny up the tempo a bit, get a bit more rock, and throw in some atmospherics...... I like both versions, but would probably play out Fanny's and enjoy Randy's at home with a cigar and port.

                    Thanks, sounds like I best keep my eyes peeled for it then.

                      The Wyatt track at least so maybe it doesn't count.

                        Give 'Solid Gold' another listen.

                        They recorded it drunk, with the drummer singing after a drinking session with Todd Rundgren.

                        It has character.

                          Hit up a new spot yesterday, 20 crates but no result, except for one that saved the day

                          Req - Daily beats. Probably shows up all the time in the UK but I've been on the lookout for this one for quite some time
                          Train jam! Making the whole block enjoy this right now

                            went away with to Carrlingford for a few days, and managed to find a few bits in the antique shop there as well as hitting the charity in Blackrock village, just outside Dundalk on the way there

                            LP's



                            Area Code 615 – s/t (Ploydor) country rock with some nice funky moments, couple of Beatles covers too
                            Dedicated: The Mod Live-Aid Album (The Pheonix) –Live LP not bad this, Mod revival, sound a bit crap, but some quality bands, paid a bit more for this 15eu
                            Al Stewart – Past Present and Future (CBS) –songwriter that’s hung up on Dylan and Lennon, not my thing
                            Talk Talk – Spirt of Eden (Parlaphone) – nice to have a copy of this classic
                            Alzo – s/t (Bell) – thought this might be some nice 12 string folk, but on a quick needle drop it’s not, will have to give a few more listens.

                            45’s all from charity in Blackrock, all for 50c



                            Renato Rascel – Renatino el la Conscienza, Italian (??) orchestral pop
                            Picked up a couple Gael Linn 45’s, been increasingly interested in the label and it’s output, picked up some nice bits too.
                            Roy Donnelly – Palabra D’Amor/ Sean Fagan- Neilí Mhicí Óig (Gael Linn) – 2 mellow crooner 50’s style, big American leaning, without the big band, Roy’s being the choice pick.
                            Seosamh Ó hÉanaí – 4 track EP (Gael Linn) – 2 EP’s here both with 4 tracks on them. Seosamh sings in whats known as a sean-nós style, and he’s pretty good at it, his LP’s can hit the 50 mark, loving both these.
                            Nicolas Tóibín -3 track EP (Gael Linn) – more Sean-nós
                            Jean Eddie Cremier – Medio Siglo de Canciones (Belter) orchestral movie score sounding
                            Albert Fry – úr-chnoc chéin mhic cáinte (Gael Linn) liking this a lot too, some real nice guitar playing and his voice is growing on me, features Donal Lunny of Planxty fame.
                            The Jacobites – Like Now (PYE) more Irish fair, but this time phased drums pop-sike beat, oh yeah, best find in a while, their only release, and features members of Skid Row.
                            Donovan- Ricki Ticki Tavi (PYE) it’s all about the b-side, Roots of Oak, top track, might have to turn down my dislike of Donovan a tad if there’s more like this

                                Alzo is pretty nice actually, paid proper money for a copy myself.
