    After sweet talking the ladies at the local charity shop I was given access to the local warehouse distribution centre, with the promise of 'thousands' of records (!!!) Of course it was never going to live up to expectations.....

    There were a LOT of records, all quite literally stuffed up in metal cages. After a couple of hours of searching and sorting the stuff for them I did manage to snag a stack of well known stuff as collection fillers (dylan, neil young) as well as some other bits.





    couple of 45s





    Back in December to make some headway into the other room full of cages

    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

    The records and clothes were weighed and a certain sum was the going rate? Hope they were as cheap as chips
    Monday - around 4 euros for 1 kg
    Tuesday - 3.80
    Wednesday - 3.40
    Thursday - 3.00
    Friday - 2.50
    Saturday (until 12.00) - 2.00
    Sunday - closed
    But really rare to find records.

    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.

I suppose maybe they could be like Marmalade or Vanity Vayre or any other late 60s mainly awful pop group.
    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.

    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.
