    Well done on that 'Przeboje Nonstop', always knew about Romauld & Roman's 'Bobas' on there but when I finally got one realised that was only one of many killers on the LP...many not on other albums either.

    Is that 'Wislanie 69' 45 any good? My finger's hovered over it as a cheapish BIN several times but I've never quite felt confident about pulling the trigger on it for some reason...

    • pull the trigger if it's cheap Wayne - one nice beaty pop number and the album sounded ok too / some nice hammond but not solid by a long chalk !

            It was on a road round the side of an indoor market which itself was just up the hill from Lord St Boulevard.. i remember it wasn't far up from the band stand.

            Somewhere near here i think...

            Hope that helps.
            Yep, small place on Market Street (near where the old location of Market Records used to be). I've not been record shopping in Southport for 18 months or so but there certainly was one other shop last time I looked, on a little side-road off the pedestrianised bit of Talbot Street. I used to pop in there a couple of times a week, slowly going through their huge piles of cheap stock. Got a lot of good stuff from there.

            There's also a lot of records in a big antiques place, at the south end of Lord Street. Lots downstairs but piles more upstairs as well.

            • got in some enjoyable digging on Satdee and snagged a few 7s:

              Cozy Cole: Big Noise from Winnetka Pts 1&2 - too cool with spoken intros an' all.

              John Schroeder Orchestra: The Fugitive Theme - giving the drummer some.

              Shadows: Stingray - early octaver on the guitar?

              Paper Dolls: Something Here In My Heart

              Sounds Nice feat Tim Mycroft: Je Taime/ Love You Too - really liking the b side.

              Sandy Edmonds: Give Him My Love - really happy with this one, she was something of a beat singer here in the 60s and was (reputedly) invited to join the Seekers post-Durham. But she went bush and disappeared in India for about 40 years; only resurfaced a couple of years back.

              http://www.elsewhere.co.nz/absolutee...ring-pop-star/

              and These Wilding Ways: Can't Control Her. another happy local find. was an offshot of 80s group the Screaming MeeMees and to my mind is an unsung kiwi classic in a sort of Mighty Wah sort of way.

                • Thought I would share the Lonnie Donegan EP cover, it's like a Stalinist poster extolling the merits of hard work for the benefit of the motherland.

                    I did go in that place. It was a bit disappointing really, tons of vinyl but pretty much all rubbish. Anything of any interest was either expensive or trashed.....

                        I've loved the Rambling Syd stuff for many years, originally a character from the Round the Horne radio show, he took on a bit of a life of his over the years and it was one of the few roles Williams would return to with any real relish. There are a couple of EPs as well with much better sleeves, containing the same material as the album. If you like the Cook sketches you should track this one down, there is a lot of Cook material including sketches that were jettisoned from the stage production but which made their way into Not Only But Also, notably the One Leg Too Few skit:

                        Yes, got plenty Round The Horne's and Beyond Our Ken's and one of the EP's too - great sleeve !
                        "World Of Kenny...." includes tracks from 'Pieces Of 8' (1959), 'One Over The 8'(1960) and 'On Pleasure Bent' (1967). All the "8" sketches but one are by Cook including Asp & One Leg Too Few.
                        Never seen a copy of One Over The 8 !


                        Perhaps I should oblige with a picture. As I mentioned before this was a charity shop find and the sleeve look like it had been used as a dog chew. A liberal use of glue has restored the worst of it thankfully. Some of Holloway's most famous monologues on here, Albert and the Lion for instance. The monologues are all from the thirties given a buffed up re-release to cash in on the popularity of My Fair Lady:

                        Got 5-6 Holloways inc the early stuff (Lion & Albert, Albert Comes Back, Sam Pick Up Thy Musket...) LOVE IT ! Grew up listening to the 78s...got quite a bit of music hall including a bootleg of Kate Carney !


                        I have the album, Jim was a surprisingly versatile singer songwriter, from early bubblegum pop singles (Be My Girl, Sugar Time) through comedy classics (Piccadilly Line) and Kings Road-esque swinging London hits (Dick a Dum) to, as you say, much more introspective and reflective songs. he also managed to pick up an Oscar nomination during that time for Georgy Girl.

                        Never seen that before - that's another want ! Dick A Dum Dum is surely the highlight of Des's career ?!

                              I actually needledropped it and put it aside for further evaluation wether to keep or not,

                              We'll see if I hear what you hear when I pull it out of that pile.

                                as Kenneth said, are there any other Ten Years After bits worth keeping a look out for?
