  • April Finds 2013

    Day one of Easter Dig in Amsterdam has yielded some goodies including one of these found for €2 in a dealers lock up.

    Had no idea what it was. Cover looked vaguely familiar. Took a listen and liked what I heard.

    Apparently only 50 ever made (yeah I know more like 500 right!)

    Nice find Mark, couple of cracking tracks on it but definitely more than 50 made - I've got one, Fuz has one and I know Mr Divine has had a couple. Interesting to find in Holland though as I think it's a Scottish private press.

          Where do people come up with these "facts" like 50 copies were pressed? In fact, that guy's whole listing sounds pretty far-fetched. Love the "when you put the LP on the turntable..." followed by grading : "mint unplayed". Another ex-Glasgow vulture got this not too long ago in the Byres Road Oxfam pound box, the one which is basically outside the shop on the street...

          Nothing to report form me - was away on holiday "up north" but most charity shops didn't even have any vinyl. Quick stop-off in Aberdeen between trains, so popped into Cavern Records. It was dark and cold, much like a cave. In fact, the service was pretty dark and cold, too: "You can't look in that pile... What are you looking for, psych and beat stuff? We get stuff in, but keep it for our regular customers..." Ah right, thanks for that, bye then...

            Ha Ha. The last time I went there I found an unpriced copy of this in the 60s box.

            How much is this?

            (Nervous shuffling followed by 'Oh that one wasn't supposed to be for sale')

            I can just about handle record shops keeping 'the good stuff' behind the counter but to have it out in the racks FOR SALE and then to change their mind when you attempt to do so is just plain rude!

              That sort of thing REALLY pisses me off. The record shop in Carlisle has had the same pile of stuff that he's 'just bought in' for the last three years - no lie - even the same Bowie LP on the top each time I've gone in.

                  The shit one down the Botchergate. No idea what it's called but I can assure you there'll be a big pile of records near the counter with the Bowie 'Man Who Sold the World' cartoon cover LP on the top.

                    The one that sells bongs and stuff and usually has radgies in buying drug paraphernalia?

                      These are mainly from March - the LPs were from this morning so they are all going in here due to my laziness. Edinburgh continues to be frustratingly arid - the Annie Ross LP I found this morning constitutes my good find for the last 2 weeks. The PO box is still fruitful but where's the fun in that?!

                      LPs - the Annie Ross wasn't £1 but it wasn't very much at all and the other three were thrown in as freebies.



                      The Annie Ross is fairly bonkers! Covers King Crimsons 'Catfood' and the Beach Boys 'Vegatables' for a start. I was aware of the Crimson cover from a Sie Fly mix but not the rest of the LP. There's some funky moments especially on the Dylan cover - 'country pie'. Here's 'Catfood'.
                      Spare Wilf Todd - cracking version of Keith Mansfield's 'Young Scene' on here!
                      Kings Singers for the Wombletons.
                      Never seen that Cliff before and as it was an OST I picked up as I thought it was going to be 30p but was free. The title track is pretty good - Two a Penny (track kicks in about 1 min in) - and he does a strange take on 'Twist and Shout' on it.

                      45s

                      Pic sleeve things



                      The Jacques Denjean took me ages to get - heard Mr Sayers spin it about three years ago and been on the lookout ever since - sort of exploito library psych funk stuff - two good sides.
                      Nevrose
                      Psychomaniac

                      White Fence 45s - as recommended on here.
                      2 unknown (to me) Japanese 45s which were sent to me by top fella Parkz - both the Bs are pretty damn good. So who / what are these?



                      Been after a copy of this since Col had it in that article on Forumusic - took a gamble on a copy which was described as good - I won it for just over a quid and it plays great. I want their other one now!

                      Indian Hate Call



                      Fuzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz



                      Better than the Big Brother version I reckon. Combination of the Two.



                      Fuzzy pop niceness!



                      Soundhog put me onto this and I found a copy in Grouchos for 50p about a day later. Great intro for starters! Puff (up in smoke).



                      Early UK up'd on this classic!



                      Aptly titled!! The Bomb



                      Fuzzed up Joe Meek cover. Telstar 69' Would like a copy of the LP too!

                        I could tell you ... but then I'd have to kill you

                        (sorry, just been listening to a Bacalov OST and getting all Sicilian on some beers here).

                        Kamayatsu Hiroshi is a big MattB spin ... maybe I'll leave him to sing the man's praises.

                        T'other is an odd one ... a soundtrack 45 from a movie featuring an ex-member of The Spiders who became a huge star in the 70s. The music is by a band responsible for some of the Howl at the Sun soundtracks.

                        Both fine examples of Parkz' exquisite taste when it comes to Japanese music.

                          I stumbled upon a goldmine and found about every raer on my wantlist for 1 Euros each, incl. Mulatu, Can, Vampires of Dartmore, afro, Bollywood, Strata stuff, sealed Blue Notes, Axelrod etc.

                            Not exactly finds in the strictest sense, but last week I acquired around 1,000 LPs from the collection of a Jazz bar owner who is closing his place. Loads of Soul Jazz, hard bop and organ, and a fair amount of vocal stuff, both M & F. Three boxes found their way to our event yesterday, and the rest will be gone through and offered up online or privately to help him pay his bills.

                            And before Sie Vulture asks ... yes he has the full complement of limbs.

                              Just a couple over the Easter weekend:

                              Jobriath's second album (which I prefer to the first) and Terry Smith's Fall Out LP.
