        The Banchee track 'I Just Don't Know' is a killer.

          A few long-time wants, some goodies for my birthday party and some random stuff picked up recently


          St Tropez Jazz Octett - Swinging St Tropez - Seems to be well known around here, Jazz for two is just so amazing


          Knef - Battered copy, but for free so not complaining


          Universal Robot Band - Shake your tambourine 12" - Ordered online whilst not exactly sober, after hosting a party..


          American Gypsy - Inside out, such a good tune. Sounds a bit like really good library funk.


          Cal Tjader - Tjader - Mambero, such a great tune, especially played really loud!


          I Marc 4 - Perhaps not solid, but a couple of killer jazzy tunes on this one.


          Eddie Warner - Progressive Percussions - Ebay-find, not very happy with the sellers grading though. Plays quite good even though it looks like shit, so not too upset about it.


          Orchestra Harlow - Harlows Harem - Freak off, a real party starter song!


          Rene & Angela - Wall to wall - Classic, felt I needed to have this for my birthday party


          Dom Um Romao - Cheap but great, Ponteio is awesome and Dom's tune is really cool in a psychedelic way. Has a very ugly, yet interesting sticker on the front cover:



          Don Cherry - Organic Society - Such a great LP, sleeveless copy and not in top shape, but another freebie so definitely not complaining.


          Anamaria & Mauricio - No, no, no... - Another long time want, definitely not happy with the grading at first, but sounded a lot better after a proper cleaning and on my own turntables.


          Cos - Postaeolian Train Robbery - Second pressing with the hideous cover photo, but such a great album. Sounds like Cortex and Placebo sandwiching Hatfield & The North or something, if you have to compare it to anything..


          Towson State College Jazz Ensemble - Haven't listened to both discs yet, but so far I'm really liking it.


          Lesiman - Here & Now 2 - One of the best libraries I've heard/own, killer spooky sounds with rhythm..


          Sven Libaek - Solar Flares - Didn't really like this when I heard it a few months back, but second time around it really grew on me so I had to get it. No party tunes, but a solid listen (with a few exceptions, of course..)


          Janko Nilovic - Rhythmes Contemporaires - 0 bad tracks, 6 great ones. Glad to finally have this!


          Temprees - Lovemen - Soul they way I like it


          Like the above one, such a lovely sound. A bit battered copy, but definitely listenable.


          Birthday present from someone who obviously knows me

            I love the disarming hype on these UK Capitol demo sleeves, which are sadly quite rare. This is an extremely good "Tequila"-type instro from 1959, but "distinguished" is about the hundredth adjective I would have chosen for these "artistes".




            Sole EP by this beat combo from Brittany, all covers but with some inspired choices - e.g. "C'est pas normal" is the Mockingbirds' "You Stole My Love" and "Sortez sans moi ce soir" is the Swinging Blue Jeans' killer B side "What Can I Do Today".




            Another one of those always delightful French EPs.




            Yet another one. Googling for something else I found a Dutch guy's sale list with the original for only 20 euros, and of course it was already gone. So I got this eighties reissue off Discogs as a consolation prize. Sadly they used the stereo versions, but "Looking Back" and "Key To Love" on 45 are still a delight. Last weekend Mayall played a blues festival here in Finland, then went straight for a swim in the nearby lake, and still dripping, went on to sign autographs for his amazed fans. Not bad for a 77-year-old.




            Punt taken on the basis of irresistible 6-year-old recommendation right here on VG+: "My cat's favourite record of all time." Pitch, of course, was also the harmonica player on the Mr. Bloe version of "Groovin' With Mr. Bloe".




            When Dutch Philips released material from US Columbia/Epic in the fifties, a lot of the LP covers were redesigned by the great Dutch graphic artist Cornelius van Velsen, who died last year at the age of 88. This is one of my favourites by him - it still managed to sell the record to me 55 years after the fact. And if you like the cover, well, the music is its exact musical equivalent; cf. "Buttercup". The 10" version shown in the video looks enticing too.




            Comp of Italian RCA hit singles from 1964, with heavy Morricone and Orlandi involvement as you can see. I first found this one 20 years ago in a junk shop in my then home town, but got rid of it as I wasn't really into this sort of stuff back then. I got another one because "Con te sulla spiaggia" has since emerged as one of my biggest Italo-pop favourites. I also remembered "Caffè poco caffè" as being nice, which it is. Had forgotten "Un tuffo al cuore", but that too.




            Dutch orange/plum Atlantic comp from around 1970, impulse purchase on Discogs while researching the Little Mac EP above. Nowhere near the VG+/VG+ advertised, but I didn't even feel like complaining, as this one just kills. Half of the contents have nothing to do with Memphis, and the track listing misspells Ben Cauley, Ronnie Caldwell, Jackie Hairston and The Goodtimers, but it is compiled in astonishingly good taste.

                Beautiful bunch of covers there.

                I had a nice pull this week - not bad, seeing as I dig very little - nice minty Talk Talk "Spirit of Eden". Also picked up Big Star "Third" for a reasonable amount from MVE and am greatly enjoying a bumper package of Simon & Garfunkel from Mr Tipper. Thanks dude! So not a bad week in all. Have some field recording action to get stuck into as well, so my cup runneth over.

                    Just found four records on the 'Pinnacle' label from 75, all in company sleeves.

                    Never even seen the label before, so picked 'em all up. Nothing particularly outstanding, but how often is it you see a label you've never heard of before?

                    http://www.45cat.com/label/pinnacle

                    I got 8406, 8407, 8409 and 8410, which are by "Splash", Brian Poole and Carousel, Flintlock and Terese Stevens respectively.

                    *edit*

                    aha- it appears I HAVE heard of this label before... Got a kids lp by something like Tallulah and the Cat People (not to hand... ) AND it's the same bunch that is still doing distro.

                    Carry on!

                    "Not only that but the WHOLE COVER is UNCREASED with only 2 or 3 TINY creaselines near the opening edge about half way down!!!! In the same place (about half way down the opening edge), there is an absolutely TINY and PERFECTLY repaired split" (xxxrecords)

                      Oh no - I got that Sioux recording through yesterday and was quite excited about listening to it. Very good, but I need to listen again. Don't think I've anything else new beyond that "recycled" Armenian thing.

                        I picked up a few nice jazz bits and bobs second hand this week which I will pop up here after a good listen. I also picked up 2 Edgar Winter Lp's for £2 hiding at the back of a load of prog rock sale stock. I've never heard his stuff before - it's all over the place. I picked them up as the 1979 LP is co produced by Tom Moulton. The track 'Above and Beyond' is a killer disco cut. A quick google tells me everyone in the world knew about this but me...

                        It's nice discovering stuff for yourself from a punt though...it made my day.
                        I have a very particular set of skills...

                              http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=okjWO...eature=related

                              el chicano: mid seventies latino stuff, not really my bag but some nice beats on there so worth the couple of quid i shelled out.
                              http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K2cBroD1_as

                              urbie green 21 trombones: took a punt on this that payed off, some nice stuff on this LP loungy but nice, all good but stand out tracks are ...

                              http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fhvi51TfogU

                              hammer: san francisco labelsters was expecting more from this, as i'd known the track "tuane" for donkeys, was massive on the jazz dance scene late eighties ... but still really the only track that stands out for me.
                              http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M09wOsXF0u4

                              alan stivell: folk harpist ... not much else to say about this ... it's OK.

                              mira kubasinska and breakout: polish bluesy rock, nice stuff, but not a patch on their earlier stuff ... the funk done gone and left em.

                              hope this helps, and saves you time and trouble google'n.

                              also a mixed bag of 45 ...

                              philamore lincoln: you're the one
                              gloria hunniford: are you ready for love
                              terry winter: i know
                              the mammas and pappas: shooting star
                              the five live: hunose (ep)
                              the cups: http://www.youtube.com/results?searc...+as+gold+&aq=f

                              all the 45s were off t'internet so not sure if that's classed as cheating on this thread or not.

                                I for one am glad you got prodded into further exhibition of your finds, because I'd never heard that Gloria Hunniford before, and it's great!

                                Pricey?

                                Er...ditto on Live Five. Awesome track
