  • Utrecht "The Finds" November 2011

    A year is going fast, again the November fair and a VG+ meeting



    VG+ meeting at twelve, the usual suspects, like every year they turn up. It was nice to see and talk to y'll again.

    Quote of the weekend: You never find another copy in this condition ( you know who you're ).



    The finds ... didn't spend much money, didn't felt to, crisis?!?, no, had so many good finds this year, big ones too. Mostly cheap under 15€, except two records 20€ & 35€. Smuggled a few in from this mornings flea-market.



    Bobby Hutcherson San Francisco featuring Harold Land ... Great, electric piano, slightly funky, but also a bit modal, incredibly strong as a whole.

    Mirage Princes of Love ... harmony soul from the US, from the late 70s

    http://youtu.be/33eJ3DNzcXo

    Upchurch/Tennyson ST ... KUDU classic I never bought before, love it

    http://youtu.be/nbU9jllIQhY

    Andy Bey Experience and Judgement ... Nice and jazzy, some funky stuff, love Andy's weird voice which is very hard to describe, but haunting! For me all about "Celestial Blues". Long time want from the list

    Eric Dolphy Last date ... Classic "very expensive" jazz record recorded in the Netherlands, happy with the I think 70s repress
    Barney Kessell Hair is Beautiful ... VG+ day without Hair can't be good, well known around these parts I think



    Freddie Hubbard Polar AC ... Upgraded to a nice USA press with a gate-fold sleeve
    Munich Machine a Whiter Shade of Pale ... Bought this for the cover, bit too much cheesy disco here, Moroder production, one good track

    http://youtu.be/s4Ckw6ZabUw

    Dizzy Gillespie y Machito Afro-Cuban Jazz Moods ... One of the few good Pablo releases
    Richard `Groove´ Holmes Six Million Dollar man ... Played this back at the hotel, could be possible a few others will also post a copy, great sweater too

    http://youtu.be/gEXkjl2xSMc

    Roy Ayers Mystic Voyage ... Classic!!
    Bob James Three ... Yes, it´s true, never bothered to buy a copy, mint 1€ made me change my mind



    Leon Thomas Blues and the Soulful Truth ... , do I need to introduce?!?

    http://youtu.be/9WLmYPfV0AE

    Splash Band The Music of John Carpeter ... Synthy remake´s with a groove
    Soundtrack Colors ... ´88 classic Hip Hop
    Melba Moore This is it ...
    Cymande ST ... Another gap filled in the long long time want list, German copy in a great condition, already played ´Dove´ a few times

    http://youtu.be/0kzJ3aXSo48

    Hadley Caliman Iapetus ... One of my fav labels, spiritual and funky at times



    Tangerine Dream Rubycon ...
    Soundtrack Bladerunner ... Wanted the Vangelis one, bought this
    Stan Kenton Cuban Fire ... Another record I bought for the cover, this one turned out to be very good
    100 Proof Aged in Soul Somebody´s Been Sleeping in my Bed ... Great Sweet Soul record on Hot Wax

    http://youtu.be/bfReqec6Tzc

    Can Future Days ... My future project, collecting all interesting Can records
    John Carpenter Die Klapper-Schlange ... Unfortunately not in a perfect condition



    Philip Catherine September Man ... Great fusion record produced by Marc Moulin, dig the track ´1974´, couldn´t find a soundclip
    Martin Circus Disco Circus ... Prelude Disco Classic
    Chick Corea Sundance ... Heavy stuff for a Groove Merchant release
    Joachin Kuhn Hip Elegy ... Thought this would be to much Fusion for me because it´s a 1976 release, it´s great though

    http://youtu.be/Qt_p4whLgKM

    Paul Humphrey Supermellow ... Good Blue Thumb record, not outstanding, remembered there was a killer track on this, can´t find it now
    Various Artist MPS Jazz Meets The World ... Comp of hard to find MPS records

    The aftermath listening to piles of records and 45s ... good luck to all ... take some time to post

    I know what you mean about the Paul Humphrey. It was in my memory way better than when I last time actually played it.

      Yep. In the ever-growing 'why did I buy this?' pile...
      We know when a mate buys it for you too.

          45's First....

          Got too many records as usual, lots were cheap, some at reasonable going rate, and the very odd slightly more expensive treat. As usual I went to back to back with Lee so there's lots of overlap in what we bought. Any questions about a particular record feel free to ask.























          LP's to follow....

              Need to give it another spin, but I wasn't that impressed!!!

              Ask Lee it's one of his top tips!!!

                It's an anti smoking flexi. Funky backing with Dutchies telling us about the perils of smoking!

                      Haha, it was an inside joke, we played it back at the hotel. We didn't hear the coolness there ...

                        Thanks mate, I'm just playing some LP's now, and I'm getting p*ssed off as they're not playing as well as they looked when I was in the hall over there. The light was crap over there for checking the condition!

                            This is the best Paul Humphrey LP to my ears -

                            Great finds BTW Cees mate.
