      I have, but never on this side of the pond. Be interested to hear how it's been edited. I found the Benson "Erotic Moods" LP at a booter last weekend, no-one commented on it - I thought that would be considered by the VG+ bretheren as a fairly hefty find for a field in Hertfordshire...

      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.

        This was nestling in a box that otherwise contained complete runs of The Nolans and Chris DeBurgh



        And the only only other record of any note was by gay rappers Yo! Majesty, which my friend nabbed. Weird.
        Great find - I've never unearthed any sa jazz in a charity shop - except for some kwela
        I think you probably got the better record than your mate!

            Yes, the Wurzels are definitely being fussy. Northern France produces some excellent ciders. I suspect this same streak of ignorance prevails today as despite their unrelenting gigging schedule they very rarely seem to play anywhere north of Chipping Sodbury or east of Bristol. Decent cider can be found all over now chaps, largely thanks to your own sterling efforts back in the 70s I suspect.

            • A few singles arrived from US after a rather long wait (ordered in April ).... bought on spec looking through a list of stuff from somewhere I get LPs from, but who had some 45s in for the first time. I think he knew as little about them as I did judging by the 'very reasonable' pricing.

              I rather like these ones:

              Amos Milburn - Soft Pillow as played by john Stapleton a while ago.

              Aesops Fables - Temptation 'bout to get me / What is love - sweet sweet soul music on Cadet Concept - love the orchestration

              The Shades Ltd - Frog hunt on mars / Fragile Fruit - not usually something I look for - raw garage - which makes my collection only about five 45s... but I rather like both sides of this - vocal to one side (fragile fruit) a little like a very raw Gloria, and fine instrumental to the other. Can't find much about them - think this might be their only 45.

              Amboy Dukes - Journey to the centre of the mind - Funky and psychedelic stuff

              The Electric Piano Playground - Good Vibrations / The Flower Song - Filthy Rich has the album, and I share his love of Good Vibrations - great fuzzed up ever growing version. Flower Song is pretty weird spaced country too. Will have to get the LP I think.

              The Purple Cucumber - Some kind of magic / Green Eyed song (Smash) - not sure how to class this? Garage-sunshine pop? I love it (Some kind of magic is best side) - but probably it strides an impossible musical chasm for most!

              Also picked up a great (to my ears) 80s electro-disco 45:

              Shock - Dynamo Beat

              • Nice little stash there Steve!

                I've been after the Electric Piano Playground LP for ages now! So long in fact that I had forgotten I was still looking for it. Does this mean I am no longer looking for it? I'm confused!

                      Have heard good things - so will hunt it down...

                      Also picked up following albums:

                      Montage S/T - loved the Left Banke album, so very pleased to find this follows on very nicely - I almost prefer it. 'I shall call her Mary' and 'Grand Pianist' are immediate favourites.

                      Martin Denny - Hypnotique - haven't really explored proper exotica, but I love the production on this....the gorgeous title track

                      Karen Beth - Harvest - love her voice singing just about anything - laid back country folk - Like wine to me

                      • It's been at or around 100 degrees F for about a week and expected to stay thereabouts for another week. I started good and early at the yard sales this weekend.
                        Before work on Friday morning I found the only vinyl at the sale at the Masonic Hall - a 4 x 7" box Audio Book of H.G.Wells' "The Time Machine" with a cool cover - unfortunately it plays at 16rpm so I won't be playing it anytime soon.
                        Quite a few yard sales on Saturday and early on I checked out one where the lady of the house was still setting up. After looking around I asked her if she had any records - I recently decided to ask this at every sale I go to. Pays to ask. She went to her basement and brought up quite a stack. Pick of the bunch were:
                        Quincy Jones/ Walking In Space (A&M)
                        Andy Bey/Experience And Judgment (Atlantic)
                        already know this one - probably a keeper
                        Shorty Rogers/Chances Are It Swings(RCA)
                        love the cover with the blonde in her striped pedal pushers. Good tunage too.
                        Stanley Turrentine/The Baddest Turrentine (CTI)
                        my favourite from this "anthology of previously released recordings" is Salt Song. I'll investigate Stanley Turrentine further.
                        Sergio Mendes/The Great Arrival (Atlantic)
                        Les McCann/Comment (Atlantic)
                        Les McCann/Another Beginning (Atlantic)

                        ain't doing much for me, too many slow vocal numbers. I expected him to be livelier than this.
                        Perez Prado/Voodoo Suite (RCA)
                        very impressed with the titular side after which the mambo treatment of "six all-time greats" sound quite trite.
                        The heat and humidity ensure that digging activities curtail early today. Time to retire for a beer or two in air-conditioned comfort.

                          Great record, hope you managed to find it relatively cheaply, John? I presume you know it's got a teenage Steven Tyler from Aerosmith on it?

                          • Got this at the boot. Suprised to find after it had been the box had been rummaged through by the regulars.



                            Recent visit to Coventry with Daddy Yaya for a Microdot Cindy gig, managed to pick this up at a charity with a serviceable copy of Full House by Fairport



                            Recent house visit from a car boot tip off. Errol Dixon on Oriole, Marsha Hunt Beast Day and Ejection by Capt Lockheed. The black and white picture sleeve is AK Process, a great early TG type 7 bought from the bay.




                            Got some reggae off my mate who found them in a skip! Still cleaning some of them up.





                            Heres some highlights





                            Interesting dub and ungooglable.

                            • Some more.











                              Another one I could find any info on net about





                              Max Romeo on Black World

















                              Been taken me ages to clean up these but most of them and have come out okay.

                              • Last lot of the highlights.



                                Great funky b side to the unmentionably named a side.















                                Love this track.



                                Nice psychy dub to my ears.









                                Bristol stuff.



                                More Bristol reggae.







                                Reggae Regular



                                This last one is more African sounding with high in the mix heavy handed bass. Couldnt find anything on the net about this one.
