  • Thanks Sevi...

    I've got a bit more work to do then I'm gonna step up to the decks and spin this...
    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 got a copy of this recently and really like it too.

      Prefer The Chamber Bros. cover on the other side but both are good.

      Turns out the vocalist ended up being an actor and is now something of a cult hero for fans of Battlestar Galactica!

          • Haven't posted any of the recent Interweb purchases here the last few weeks as that seems to be cheating really, but have just returned from a weekend at my old man's, where I took in a large booter on a lovely crisp Saturday morning.

            Mostly it was the usual chuff, along with a few optimistic punts . . .

            BBC Decimilisation training disc for the shopkeppers of the land
            Vangelis - Spiral (spare)
            Boz Scaggs and Band - 1972 LP
            The Lighthouse - The Word of God (Xtian / gospel thing outta Detroit)

            Judy Collins - Both Sides Now (late outing - 1981 - but has some interesting covers, so why not for 20p)
            Jose Feliciano - Souled
            Hammond Fever on Deacon
            Today's Vogue (1970 comp of French hits including Jacques Dutronc, Les Charlots, Antoine, Martin Circus and . . . um . . . Petula Clark)

            Very pleased to pick this up.

            The two takes on Big Noise from Winnetka are dark noir crime jazz classics.

            Bunch of random 45s, which I've not had time to sift through yet:

            Nico Fidenco - Legata A Un Granello Di Sabbia / Ridi, Ridi
            Russian thing in Cyrillic
            Dave Clark Five - Everybody get Together / Darling I Love You
            The Naturals - Didn' I ? / I should've Known Better
            The Lemon Pipers - Rice is Nice / Blueberry Blue
            Brenton Wood - Gimme Little Sign / I Think You've Got Your Fools MIxed Up
            Tom Jones - Detroit City / If I had You
            Tommy James & The Shondells - Mony. Mony / One Two Three and I Fell
            Preston Epps - Bongos in Pastel / Doin' the Cha Cha Cha
            Rolling Stones flexi to promote Exile on Main Street

            Quite pleased to turn up a Darrow Fletcher 45.
            Not his best, but nice nevertheless.

            And slightly stunned and most elated to find this at the back of a pile of crap for 20p!!!

            To infinity - and beyond!



              Well done mate! Find of the bloody year!

                ... so an evening of flutey French prog awaits me..!
                All the Utrecht copies were expensive or rubbed up - otherwise I'd have had that to go with my MEV "Leave the City"

                randy burns - an uncertain lady (finally upgraded my dodgy italian boot of this. magical record. my favorite by burns)
                I'd have had the mothlight too - Randy Burns is a winner - I only have the ESP LP - "Lady" is on my list - top scores

                The Swiss fares I've been to have been fairly good - proper quality records at good prices - I had to be dragged out of one at the far end of lake Geneva - found it by accident en-route to a "romantic" walk round the lake...

                EDIT - just spotted the Icarus - did you haggle

He didn't comply with my requested packing instructions to remove the record from the cover before packing in order to avoid seam splits, and naturally, the record arrived with badly split seams. When I informed him of it, he offered no apology, mea culpa, or partial refund. Instead, he claimed to have sacked the boy employee who had packed it! Seriously!
                        I've never dealt with the man again, and un-bookmarked his site.

                        Hmm, reckon it's a case of 'If in doubt, leave it out' here, thanks for that moe!

                        Now back to the finds...


                        • Icarus 20p.
                          omfg well done that man.

                            Bah, there was a 45 of Hard Times ar Utrecht but I was all spent out...
                            Club stuff:




                            • With shops like these, who needs Utrecht?

                              After my success in one local shop during the Utrecht weekend I popped by another one this weekend - the owner just back from Utrecht, and having just placed out lots of new arrivals. Doubt any of them came from the fair, as he said the prices were high on most things. This is what I treated myself to:

                              East of Eden - Mercator Projected / SNAFU
                              Yeah I know - it's a later 2LP pressing compiling first 2 records, but it's also a relatively cheap way to get both records compared to picking up 2 separate OGs. Good prog on the first record (I can now replace my reissue) and surprised to hear them go out in more jazzy (especially free-jazzy) territory on the second one.

                              Gil Scott-Heron - From South Africa to South Carolina
                              My 2nd Gil record - and another wonderful soul/jazz/groove offering. It's well known here I suppose - I'm just late ticking off a lot of good artists off my mental list.

                              Animated Egg - S/T
                              Alshire cash-in psych alert. Replacing my uglier version of this album released under the name Black Diamonds - yes, I do believe it's exactly the same record with different bandname and sleeve but haven't played back to back yet.

                              Tomasz Stanko - Twet
                              Polish avantgarde jazz - at times droney and dark, other times freejazzy and sometimes groovy.

                              Bill Holt -Dreamies
                              I suppose an OG copy of this will be impossible to find so this reissue will have to do. It's a wonderful electronics meet folk kinda thing with sound collages, synthesizer sounds, acoustic guitars and all kinds of things melted together into a truly trippy mellow experience that probably most members of this board would find interesting. Recorded in 1973 an way ahead of its time - think a stoned Bruce Haack meets a mellow folksinger with a bit of John Cage thrown in. Listen to a soundclip here:
                              "Only one thought left, that makes me come alive,
                              and that is you and me side by side, on the licorice ride"
