    That Damnation of Adam Blessing is worth dwelling on! So did this purchase run the entire alphabet?
    ...if in doubt consult your dealer.

      Left around 170 -180 lps to show
      But if there is no interest I'll stop except if I need help and advice for some records (I'm new in the vinyl - sorry)

        All "E" were totally unknown for me - (may be Don Ellis says something but not very clear to me). I chose by the covers - I love or not.

        The record without name is Edwards Hand (George Martin from Beatles?)

          Egg and Earth Free! Nice finds!
          We know when a mate buys it for you too.

            Like I said before - looks like there are quite a few gems in that haul.

              ФФФ or F in latin

              Pfuuu - now preparing the picture, I saw - I took twice "Frijid Pink" on every visit- may be because I know them (House of the rising sun naturally).
              Chris Farlow I know and Zappa's Flo and Eddie - the rest is silence...
              Oups - sorry - Flamin Groovies are not totally unknown.

                Sunday's booters were a lot of fun - plenty to look at plus plenty of sunshine. Sorry no pics but I've got to travel off to work up north later this afto...

                Paul Nicholas "Reggae... / Lamp Lighter" (RSO 45) - seriously, I don't think i've every owned a copy of this..!

                5 copies of Blues & Soul magazine, all from 1973.

                The first 7 editions of the Soul Source fanzine (Nottingham) from 1979.

                Issue 8 of Soul Symbol (Weybridge) fanzine, 1979.

                Frazer Mak "A Rare Blend Of Music" (SRT) - as featured of Working Man's Soul 2 - The copy we used on the comp belonged to Chris, so I'm pleased to have finally found my own copy.

                Various "The Best Of President Vol 1" (President) - best of comp from 1969 - you get all the usual suspects; Felice Taylor, Equals, Pyramids, Symbols, Casinos, Little Grants & Eddie...

                George Benson "Erotic Moods" (Paul Winley) - resplendent with shrink and import sticker intact, very pleased to find a copy of this in a field in Cambridgeshire. For those of you who don't know it, check out "Smokin' Cheeba Cheeba" and "Loose Joints".

                ... plus a couple of BBC Radioplay Music discs - George Benson (TAIR80066) and Cassietta George (TAIR 79002). Will check them out later...

                All in all, a good day..!
                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.

                        Sorry to have come over all shirty, but it just frustrates me to see no info about finds .... anyway - look at all the discussion that followed your follow up post I rest my case

                        I for one wondered if the El Chicano was worth picking up for cheap as it's not one I've got....

                        Anyway - I picked up a few £2 - £3 unplayed 70s/80s jazz from outside a shop yesterday.... surprised to find the classic jazz-prog Solid Gold Cadillac first LP in there - Mike Westbrook's group - a duplicate if anyone's after it. Includes the great funky workout - Pleasure City.....

                        Also got a duplicate copy of Dankworth Big Band - Lifeline LP.... (includes the Tomorrow's World Theme)... if anyone wants....


                        Another surprise find in the bargain bin was Alan Branscombe's LP - The Day I Met The Blues... some nice straight jazzy blues with Tony Coe and Tony Kinsey in attendance.

                        Other bits and pieces...

                        Gust William Tsilis (vibraphonist) - Pale Fire (Enja) with Arthur Blythe - title track is a goodun' - spiritual jazz with teeth and swing

                        Low Flying Aircraft - S/T (Red Hot Records) with Keith Tippett... pretty uncompromising stuff - for me 'Poolside' and 'Moronathon' stand out as more accessible fun.

                        Bob Moses - Visit With The Great Spirit (Gramavision) arranged by Mike Gibbs with what seems to be the whole 80s jazz world in one big band! Great stuff - my favourite of the batch of finds - especially the squelchy 'Fan Man'

                        Sidsel Endresen - So I write (ECM) - melancholic nordic vocalist with minimal accompaniment (percussion, piano trumpet) - the song 'Truth' is gorgeous - just her and percussion.... (not the version on youtube)

                        Jan Hammer Group - Oh Yeah? (Nemperor) - synthfunk - title instrumental track (and single) Oh Yeah? is pretty good, but I prefer the song 'One To One'

                        Michael Colombier - S/T (Chrysalis) Another star-studded effort - Hancock, Pastorius, Scott, Ritenour and the London Symphony Orchestra... pretty standard jazzfunk ( with the exception of perhaps 'Do It' - which is just that bit tighter:
                        "Ridicule is nothing to be scared of"



                        • Usual mixture of sources - set sales, charity finds, rubbish record fair, trade (many thanks Sie) etc...

                          Weird Lyons Maid sales conference LP from the boot - very strange. BJ Thomas from the boot - a bit ho hum. Best of Budgie is pretty good - especially the earlier stuff. O'Jays, Cliff, Midnight Cowboy and Dylan all nabbed from a charity that usually has no records - pleased to get the nice UK orig Dylan for a quid Clarence Carter from the fair - as usual a mixed bag but really digging the version of Light my Fire. Paul Mauriat from the fair - there was a fella with boxes of cheap records with what seemed like complete runs of LPs from some of our easy heros - Werner Muller, Alan Tew, Mauriat etc but all with the big LPs missing e.g. no Hanged Man, no Strip Goes On etc but I did find some good ones and saw some I've never ever seen before! All of them minty too - in this pic is a nice UK copy of the Rhythm & Blues LP.

                          Middle three in trade from Sie Fly - most chuffed - big cheers fella. All the rest from set sales - loving the later Wailers LP - nice mix of psych and garage. Philamore Lincoln is great too! Also digging the Martha Velez - NOT a two tracker!! The Coxsone comp was from the fair and is very good indeed.

                          Mostly easy gear from the fair - never seen the Werner Moody Blues LP before - strange LP - pretty good. Themes for Secret Agents is a spare. Mascara is a cheesy disco thing with a Moroder styled cover of 'Coming Home Baby'. Also pictured random dancey type 12s from a charity.
