    Will investigate when I get home..!
    I'd like to hear more about this one, if you don't mind.

      I'd have pooped myself. Well done fella, that's a beaut.
      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.

        I picked this up at midday on Saturday then shipped out to Asia to work for the next couple of weeks. Needless to say I didn't get to listen to it before I left. It's at the top of the things to listen to when I get home pile...

        There is one reference on Popsike - but that's about all I've found to date...

            went after that lp today, but it seems to be sold out everywhere. Can i ask where you got yours?

            thank you
            Ended up getting it closer to home than i thought: a friend who has a lovely store in Lisbon (that you all should visit if you're ever around - it's called Carbono) just emailed me saying he has a copy for me. This search is over... Next, please!

              Jasper - S/T (Look records)
              Terrible private press LP, bought it cos they do covers of 'She's not there', and 'Don't let me be misunderstood'.

              Spare.

              The Roots - Silent treatment (DGC)

              Finally managed to grab a copy of this vulture classic.

              Mike Carr - Hammond under pressure (EMI)
              More vulture action.

              Yan Tregger - Picture (MP2000)
              Killer library action by one of favourite library artists.

              Trinidad oil company - The calendar song (EMI)
              Some great covers.

              Alan Price - Lucky man (WB)
              Yet to give it a spin.

              Michel Legrand and friends (RCA)
              Vulture action.

              Bud Shank - Windmills of your mind (World pacific)
              I'm a sucker for covers of the title track!

              Mel Thorme - Live at the Maisonette (Atlantic)
              Bonkers cover of 'Superstition'

              Eric Clapton - S/T (Polydor)
              One great funky instrumental.

              The excursion - Night train (Gemini)
              Funky hammond action.

              Shawn Phillips - Second contribution (A&M)
              Still need to give this one a spin.

              Cannonball Adderley's - Big man (Fantasy)
              A bit tepid!

              The now generation - Sock it to me!!! (Somerset)
              Vulture stuff.

              My thanks goes to Lee for the freebies.

                It this that proper old school swirl with the colours and not crackle...

                @ Craig - the Shawn Phillips is a classic - only found it last year - side one is a monster - all flows together... cover is a winner too

                  Some recent Charity scores

                  Group 64 Cool cover, but sadly rather run of the mill covers of beat hits of '64
                  Patsy Peters Well known I'm guessing. 'Ode to Billy Joe'. Rest of fairly straight country
                  Now Generation US cover (above) looks much better than the UK one!
                  Dyon Parker Great early Dylan/SSW stuff. Seems quite rare for a Marble Arch LP?



                  Club Folk Vol.2 Excellent sampler of folk culled from albums probably outside of my price range. On the look out for Vol.1 now



                  Paul Clark - Songs from the Savior Proper pruchase, to sit next to my vol.2. Great xian 70s US fok rock stuff.

                          That Jasper LP is probably by the same Lounge act who did an album on SRT called 'Front To Back.'
                          Not to be confused with the 'Liberation' Jasper.

                            after saving up a wee bit of extra lunchtime freedom I managed a fair bit of quality record rifling and snared a few goodies...

                            Cal Tjader, Huracan (Crystal Clear Records), a 12'' four tracker from 1978 featuring the likes of Willie Bobo, Alex Rodriguez and Pancho Sanchez. Very cool opener, Funqiado, wot I'm looking forward to playing out.

                            Perez Prado, This Is Perez Prado (RCA), I'm always a sucker from some quality Prado and after looking at this record every time I visit the store I decided today was the day to take it home.

                            The Critters, Touch 'n' Go (Project 3), a reissue, but no matter, it's still blessed with that grand Project 3 Aerosmith sound.

                            Les Baxter's Young Pops (Capitol), Spanish pressing, actually I bought this to add to the covers now gracing my work station. Right purdy it's looking too.

                              Is that one any good then, apart from not being very good this one is too late for my taste with it being 1978.

                                I knew I'd like this, being a massive fan of all things sunshine pop...somehow I'd never thought to check it out online til this reminded me.

                                BEST THING EVER! (well, the two tracks I've just found on youtube...at least) Much better production than their first album, which is great, but much more primitive sounding.
                                "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)
