  • Will do. Oh and truly hideous architecture by the way. If there's ever an 'ugly library' thread I know what photo to post.

      • a couple of nice charity finds yesterday - only records I'm afraid, the availability of sundry American symbolism of yore has flagged of late.

        Johnny Desmond, Swinging (Gala) - think Always-era Bobby Darin featuring a groovy bongoed version of Old Devil Moon that immediately took my fancy. They called him 'the creamer' and I can hear why.

        Nelson Riddle soundtrack for What A Way To Go (Capitol, I think) - aside from the title track, Giggling Girls is a revelation. Swinging jazz rhythm leading into some tasty solos as a space-age lounge choral vocal. Very cool.

        various Cillas (Decca natch).

        Gary Puckett & the (non-Dixie waving) Union Gap, Lady Willpower 7'' for the Daylight Stranger b-side.

        Button Down Brass, Why Can't We All Get Together (Pye), Truckin' rocks along nicely.

        and a spare of Andy Williams' 7'' House of Bamboo.

            • Nice finds sir!

              I'm interested in the Tee Set Cees - I'll PM you

              • Are the tee set not crap then Iee? I've had various bits by them over the years (a few 45s, a comp of their best stuff and a few appearances on other comps) and it was all rubbish but maybe I was unlucky. I suppose maybe they could be like Marmalade or Vanity Vayre or any other late 60s mainly awful pop group.
                Enthusiastic vagueness passes for scholarship in the twilight world of the disc-jockey.

                  In short - yes - you are correct. However that LP is their attmept at pop sike and some of it is rather good - I have a beat up copy you can have if I sort this trade with Cees.

                  • In lieu of sufficient time and funds to go to Utrecht I scored greatly in a local shop this weekend:

                    Modern Lovers - S/T
                    OG to replace my reissue. Excellent all through and Roadrunner is one of the best rock songs ever.

                    Magma - S/T
                    Great prog - very composed (which I normally don't like) but in a good way. Also - this first album is a little bit more loose and jazzy.

                    Friend and Lover - Reach Out of the Darkness
                    Great trippy folk/vocal pop thing on Verve Forecast, that seemed to have an eye for finding interesting non-jazz acts - don't think I've encountered a bad album on that label yet.

                    Berndt Egerbladh - Nybyggarland
                    Swedish folkjazz, all round nice but two great tracks that stand out.


                    Sorry - no pics, I'm lazy today.

                              • Record fair was a bit of a bust: spent a little too much on a minty copy of Edgar Broughton's Wasa Wasa because it'll be a long time til I see another copy like it, and that was it: nothing else I was even remotely tempted by.

                                Ambled home to avoid the pile of essays waiting for me to correct, and into a charity shop as you do......lots of new stuff out since earlier in the week, and among a lot of 80s commons was a copy of




                                for a euro.

                                So that was nice.

                                Those essays are still there though
                                Those funny cars won't make the teardrops start/ but way up there is where she broke my heart
