    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.

        I haven't had the nerve to spin it yet. Judging from the hair and clothes, I'd guess it was from 1975 or 1976, but that's only a guess.

          Unfortunately the cover wasn't enough to put me off spinning the one I picked up, as Hommer Simpson would say 'My ears are soiled'!

            yep, took the Critters down to my vinyl cave in the basement and gave it a rip - good times, and as you say, a much fuller soundscape cf the debut.

            but on my way home I also nabbed tha Little Ann album Deep Shadows (Timmion). It's a vinyl only release with accompanying legend that it was recorded way back in the whenevers, then shelved and forgotten.

            Anyone know if this is true or a bit of marketing spin?
            Either way it's superb, spinetingling stuff and well worth the price of admission

            also got this Ray Bryant Orchestra album, Take A Bryant Step (Cadet) with some very very cool jazz takes on the likes of To Sir With Love and Paint it Black; a wee nudge on the bpms turns the latter into top dancefloor fodder.

            so, it was a pretty good day on the buying front.

              It's definitely old 60s recordings, don't think it was intended as an album, as such - it's more a compilation gathering all her recorded output. Which has mostly been on various Kent CDs and 7"s - but this is the only place they're all collected together. I agree, it's amazing - think "What Should I Do" has been a massive spin since it was played off acetate in the 70s... her identity unknown.

              Check out "Dave Hamilton's Detroit Dancers" CD for the full story...

                Finally managed to grab a copy of this vulture classic.
                It took some time for me too. Only found recently - it's probably mentioned by me in the July or August finds thread already. I spun My Babe at the outdoors Crillo because I thought the average Dane needed some organ groove meets trippy backwards psychedelia to go with their early afternoon Saturday walk.

                  I'd seen it a couple of times previously, but it had either been rough or over priced.

                      Managed to pop into a local shop after a nice Jazz collection hit the floor. Everything was reasonably well priced but the owner luckily put out the stuff that was unfamiliar at particularly attractive prices . Here's what I came home with (pics not mine):




                      Leo Burnett Company - Music Music Music
                      Vanity pressing of a breakfast meeting from 1962 where they have a live group performing all their successful jingles in between speeches.




                      Eddie Jefferson - Still on the planet
                      I love his versions of Bitches Brew and Freedom Jazz Dance from the other LP I have and this has a terrific version of Chameleon: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DIdy8NpjneE




                      Clifford Thornton New Art Ensemble - Freedom and Unity
                      I grabbed this mainly cause it looked the business. Only needle dropped but it sounds great - free but not too skronky.




                      Abdul Wadud - By Myself
                      I'd seen this posted on Waxidermy I think so I took a punt. Again, only had a chance to needledrop but sounds pretty good on first pass.




                      Norma Winstone - Edge of Time
                      Again, only knew about this from posts on here. Very pleased with this one.


                      So, all in all quite a pleasant Thursday evening.

                          I listened to it this week and it's so damn good. Well done.

                            cheers for that oh divine one, a good yarn.

                            just grabbed myself a copy of the Faces Ooh La La for a buck, mostly for the mad cover, but I'm quite liking the Fly in the Ointment instrumental.

                            never been much of a fan of Rod's vocal stylings.

                            and Randy Newman Orchestra's Peyton Place soundtrack which comes loaded with honking sax and a mid-60s rock and roll-type vibe. Not great but not bad neither. may have it's uses.
