  • January Finds 2013

    Just back from New Year in Amsterdam. Had a great time in one of my favourite cities. Shame it poured with rain all New Years Eve.

    Anyway went to all the usual haunts in Amsterdam and a day trip to Rotterdam.

    Came back with the following:

    The first picture were Xmas presents from kind relatives



    Mladen Gutesha - Und - Been after an original press of this LP ever since Grope played it to me about ten years ago. As he siad at the time, try searching the internet for a record called "and!" Until then I'll have to make do with this reissue.

    Joy Unlimited - Instrumental Impressions - Reissue of a super rare German library.

    Cults Percussion Ensemble - Great reissue from Trunk Records whivh is probably well known to everyone here.

    Ted Curson - Flip Top - Contains the great track Quicksand.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hPLK-...=results_video

    Roy Head - Treat me Right - No idea whether this is the same Roy Head that put out the Mr Funky LP. Some rock n roll stuff and some great instrumentals. Does anyone know anything about this one?

    Secos & Molhados - ST - Great Brazillian LP recommended to me by our very own Modal Man.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u7RMKVVvCRU



    De Paula Urso Vieira - Great Italian Bossa Jazz. Been after the track Viva Bem for ages. Probably would have helped if I had known the track was on this LP!

    John Sangster - The Trip - Rare OZ jazz.

    Fela Kuti & the Afrika 70 - Open and Close - Nigerian original. One of three Fela's picked up on this trip, probably my favourite. In fact, on closer inspection, I've bought the same LP twice, one of these being a French pressing!

    Mirageman - Thunder and Lighting - Comp of Itailian library tracks.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FSvOO8d9BG4

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vnLHMYsoRzw



    Billy Stewart Teaches Old Standards New Tricks

    Good stuff there Mark - I'd be very pleased if that was my first haul of the year. Still shaking my head wondering what Aussie jazz rares were doing hiding in between the canals... I'd love to hear that "Barracuda" LP - and I wonder which release is "Special Reggae Volume 1"..???

    That bonkers Lionel Abel 45 - strange one, all copies that I've seen for sale are in The Netherlands... wierd.

    The American Gypsy LP was released in the US too, no..? Or did you mean Euro-only cover..?

    Oh, fellow 'plussers - if you are interested in the Rosetta Hightower album - there are two issues of the same LP. I can't take a photo of the other issue as I gave it to Saint Jude. I owed him...

    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.

      Nice finds there Mark! Warm Dust were indeed a UK band – did 2 LPs in the UK (with very similar covers – the other one has a soldier on it), both are great with the 2xlp one with the cover of ‘Indian Rope Man’ being my fave. They also did a third LP which only came out in Euroland.

      I have that ‘Made in Sweden’ in a different sleeve – UK issue on Sonnet I think. Very nice LP.

      Out of interest which shops do you rate in Amsterdam at the moment

      I’d like to hear that ‘Barracuda’ comp too!!

        First dig of 2013 was in the tradition of cheap exploito and 80s gear.

          Cheers Sie, I'm very pleased with the bits I found.

          Barracuda Vol 1 is boring reggae. Found one a while ago but was very disappointed with it.

          Lionel Abel is a strange one, copies can be found relatively easily in Holland.

          Did American Gypsy get a US issue. I thought it was only Dutch and German?

          Didn't know there was another cover to the Hightower?

            Lee, cheers for the info on Warm Dust. I have two of their LP's,this one and the one with a soldier. Just wondered why I always see it in Euroland and not over here.

            Made in Sweden is a cool LP. Like the version of A Day in the Life.

            Barracuda is a cool LP. Great version of Barrabass track Woman.

            Regarding shops Lee, it depends what you're after.

            Waxwell is best for US stuff. Rush Hour has some cool Brazil gear. The two newer shops in the Red Light district are great for Bollywood, odd world bits, disco etc. The rest of the shops are all hit and miss. Still tend to be better than most UK shops in my experience.

              Yep, that's the name they were marketed under in the US and elsewhere in the 60s.

                It's an American "LA Pasadena Ghetto Orchestra" Band who was based in southern Netherlands (moved in the early 70s) and recorded their record here. They toured Europe a lot mid 70s. There is a Dutch, German and USA press. This is the US press...



                Nice finds, especially the OZ jazz ... few wants in that pile

                  About that Albert Show - Electronic Baby, is a very hard to find release that's not cheap too.

                    Thanks for the info.

                    I've actually had that US press before!!

                    I need to come digging with you in the Hague next time.

                    I know there are a lot of Kringloops near to where my girlfriends sister lives that I want to check out one day!

                      Will have a look at the websites after dinner.

                      Was pleased to pick it up for cheap at Flesch.

                          Also, forget the Hightower 'two issues' comment - I was thinking of her other LP, the one on Rediffusion... D'oh, sorry...

                              Tons of great looking stuff! The Mirageman is an old favourite of mine, love that "Hallucination" track. There's a second volume, called "Thrilling".
