    Few finds from last couple of weeks.


    First time I've seen any of these. At 10p a go I didn't bother to check the records and got home to find Play Away has another copy of Bang On A Drum in it.
    Bang On A Drum - Comp (BBC)
    Play Away - Comp (BBC)
    Happy Monsters - Comp (Happy House)


    The Ultravox are Ebay purchases and Serge is a trade with Willy-Fogg (cheers mate).
    Ultravox! - Ultravox! (Island). Great album.
    Ultravox! - Ha! Ha! Ha! (Island)
    Serge Gainsbourg - Histoire de Melody Nelson (LITA). Genius stuff.


    This lot and the next ones were from a vintage fair £1/record but the guy did me the seven I picked up for a fiver.
    The Rolling Stones - Big Hits (Decca)
    Funky Junction - Tribute to Deep Purple (SGA)
    Tangerine Dream - Cyclone (Virgin). Never had any of theirs before and not sure this is for me.


    Kris Kristofferson - Border Lord (Monument). Aware this one gets a lot of love here so going to give it a go.
    Labi Siffre - S/T (Pye)
    Walker Brothers - Portrait (Philips)
    Pharoah Sanders - Karma (Impulse). Sleeveless and not even sure a good clean will rescue it but it was effectively free so worth a try.

    So on Saturday at the market I was able to check the leftovers from the collection of jazz/jazz funk/easy that the dealer nabbed from the skip guy the previous weekend. Did overhear one record guy saying he'd got 30 or 40 records the previous week and some good mod hammonds amongest them Lots of records and pretty much all of it easy but very cheesy easy. Stacks of organ LP's I've never seen (even by the likes of Harry Stoneham and Klaus Wunderlich) on private labels but I'm afraid all of them had the look of the Blackpool musichall about them. The few punts I took pretty much sounded as expected and I could have lived without them all.



    Electronic Organs Today (Ad Rhythm) A comp which I bought solely for the Hal Vincent track Funky Nashville off the Ad Rhythm Baldwin Soul LP. Good track...makes me want the Baldwin Soul all the more.

    Tony Back - Hammond Dance Party (Ad Rhythm) Shame it wasn't Baldwin Soul but not a bad two tracker with the two originals Finger Trouble + Soul Organ 70. I already own it so I think LDBJ is getting this one (soz Craig but I really do owe Lee some records)

    Michael's Music - Hammond On Velvet Strings (Polydor COS) Easy tracks with hammond. Fairly syrupy but I've heard worse. All slow numbers and no originals but highlight is probably We've Only Just Begun.

    Antonio Ma Mayolas - Martilleando (EDI) All OG tracks and some are nearly there but don't quite make it.



    Brian Sharp - Mainly Hammond (Grosvenor) More naff covers and an OK stab at Aquarius but not sure I really need another cover of that song

    Otto Weiss - At It Again (Joy) Crap medley's but one was titled 'Rock Beat Potpourrie' so I had foolish hopes but no surprise that it's pony.

    Brian Hazelby - Sounds Good (Hollick & Taylor) Like the Brian Sharp LP....ie naff covers and end of the pier organ noodling. Not a bad take on 2001:A Space Odyssey but again lacking the funk and do I need yet another cover.

    Soul Flutes: Trust In Me (A&M/CTI) Couldn't leave this I guess and stellar jazz guys on the LP. Not something I'd put on the deck often but quite a nice gentle listen if you're in the mood.

    Ron Cornelius was picked up due to the love it gets on Waxi - need to spin it again I think - didn't grab me straight off but really liked the first track. Proper downer SSW.
    The Harlan County LP gets a lot of love on here Lee.

    I got that Ron Cornelius from Steels when I was getting the £1 records. Give it a few more listens (grower) but if you decide to flog it I'm sure you'll have no problem in shifting it.

    Lovely copy of a stone classic from a charity

    Rest of the 45s from a really interesting box of 45s at the boot - wish I'd got to it first

    interesting pop psych thing



    nice bit of RnR



    interesting country soft sike



    bit of pop soul



    Don't know how to describe this? Countryrocksikepop? Diggin it though



    Early bit of Patti



    All the these big 'uns from the boot.



    Duane Eddy comp for the missus to play in the living room - killer collection though.
    Marcia Griffiths would have been the find of the day if it had been in better nick but it's in usual 70's Trojan car boot LP condition plays not bad though.
    Chess comp for my Daughter.
    Jefferson Airplane is a nice UK original with a bit of a 'previously loved' sleeve - ashamed to say I didn't own this previously - I'm still not all that convinced by it to be honest
    Bob Crewe is a spare - groovy easy stuff!
    Ron Cornelius was picked up due to the love it gets on Waxi - need to spin it again I think - didn't grab me straight off but really liked the first track. Proper downer SSW.
    Jan Akkerman is a spare - mod guitar instro RnB action!
    A Sergio I've never had before - its pretty darn good too!
    Tolonen is swedish prog with some sitar action - quite nice on first listen

    Next lot were from a charity and I couldn't resist some old skool VV classics in mint condition - all spare so holler if you need. NYJO gone though I think.
