    Famous Swedish kiddie groove: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pzMNpwEpiIU
    Spare/upgrade - very clean copy! Unusual for kiddie records. I'm happy (unless playing reveals hidden flaws). I know I promised too look for this for someone on here so now for a search of the forum to help me remember who it was.

    A trip to a local shop and a look through the new arrivals:



    Shadows
    Good example of a record where a boring selection of songs to cover is somewhat saved by inventive interpretations. Nice to find for cheap.

    Sugarcane Harris
    Funk-jazz-soul-hybrid. Of some sort. Excellent - I like electric violin groove.

    Cortex
    Swedish postpunk with the amazing Freddie Wadling on vocals.
    Fun to compare then: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bkfPLIJbi-o
    And now: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BNwldbPFrdo

    Sunn O & Boris
    Droooooooooooooones. Deeeeeeeeep bass. Is on youtube but totally pointless to link to as the 3LP box have very little music on each side to accomodate for an unearthly low rumbling roar of sound without loss of sound quality. Listening to it ripped for use on youtube makes it seem completely pointless.

    Bootles



    Yesterday back from work in a place that normally has only books. "Everything about this record feels flimsy. The paper stock, the print job, the vinyl. But the music is solid. They sound every bit as good as the real thing."

    Plus "Today's The Day" by Ola & The Janglers. With electric piano, the drum figure from the mono version of "She's Not There", and Ola doing his best to sound like Colin Blunstone, it's one of the great Zombies ripoffs of all time.

    Funny, because he kept saying to me he wasn't in it for the money.
    I bought some nice records from him so Í was happy.

    He was a bit of a weirdo indeed. He kept talking to me about his Sinatra records and he had a smelly dog that tried to hump me.
    Funny, the guy is well known around the Hague. We know him as mister 1 Euro, doesn't want to pay more, when selling he wants full price.

    Isn't in it for the money

    Yes it's the same guy, I didn't know he had a craigslist, got the address from a friend. I met the guy, he was a big easy listening / Sinatra fan and a bit weird. At first I found him very expensive, but in the end I think he made a mistake and the records had a average price of 9 euro. Otherwise I wouldn't have taken them all. I think I know who the guy is who bought the Blue Notes. It's a Utrecht Dealer aged around 60-70 yrs old. Paid around 4000 euro or so.

    He had like an instant Herbie Mann collection. All in great condition. I just picked out My Kinda Groove + a load of other stuff. I think I was the first caller when his add came on Craigslist. He first put a whole load of first pressing Blue Notes aside for me but then some collector with too much money came along and skooped up the whole bunch. When I was there he had just the Paul Chambers (japanese pressing) left.
    I bought Trio Camara and John Cameron - Off centre from him. Dutch pressing of Miles Ahead. Couple of mono Coltrane's on London in great shape. Joao Donato - Sambou Sambou and some other things.
    Did you meet the guy in person?

    Really like that Martelli OST. Couple of great tracks on it as I recall.

    Let me know what you think of the Mayuzumi. I've been seeing his name crop up a lot recently on soundtracks (Army of the Apes being a prime example) and want to explore some more of his stuff. I'm guessing he leans more towards the standard classical palette than Takemitsu, though.
    On the Martelli are a couple of great tracks, great listen all the way through.

    I like the Mayuzumi, it's classical in a Philip Glass style although this recording is earlier. It's a heavy listen, but if you're in the right mood it's very interesting.
