  • August 2013 Finds

    I've not been turning up much in the wilds of late so it was nice to get a call from one of the car boot grippers to go through a large collection of records he'd had in - so I took some time off work and had a look. The added bonus was that everything (with one exception) was a quid or less

    First up a few LPs.



    Nice Reggae comp - some proper skinhead tunes on it. A brace of early 80s De Wolfes - a bit electro for me but I thought somebody will want them - the Simon Park one has a rip off of the 'Knight Rider' theme tune The Katie Lee is a gift for Fuz and his wall of odd. The Silk was the sole PO box arrival.

    ..but the visit was all about the 45s for me



    Selected highlights

    This was the only one which wasn't a quid but it was vastly less than the going rate



    loving it!



    cover of the Grassroots / Rokes tune



    some minty reggae



    ..talking of the Grassroots tune



    don't know this but the needle drop on the B sounded good



    A later release from Oz band the La-De-Das I think - nice version anyway



    I like John Fred and this is a good uptempo stomper



    Minting up on this weird glam version



    a bit of gentle



    nope - no idea - again the B sounded good on needle drop



    Rude reggaesploitation thing



    Manc popsike



    Plain odd - a Hugh Jakartajive spin I think



    Another nice Beatles cover - bit of a warp on this but I'm hoping my decks will be forgiving



    Stompy glam / new wave crossover



    more oddness



    A brace of great Trems Bs



    A later Troggs stomper



    Roy does fuzz - spare



    One of three Herd 45s I picked up



    Schroeder related funky thing

        Found a box full of rarities all one euro each on a small market near my house. Only 10-13 stalls, I go there every year for 10yrs never found a record before.



        Rare german prog record ... Zomby Woof ... Magma is well known I think ..

        A bit rough but very welcome ... and a later JB



        A nice CAN record and a Westbound funk classic



        Nice Portugees Disco exploitation, cheesy it is.



        Nice kraut jazz with sitar ...

        http://youtu.be/xpuhSccgnUc

        And too much reggae to mention, mostly rare and roots ...



































        Some Afro

                Good work Lee! Some corkers there. I with you on John Fred. Can't go wrong, Up And Down always gets our cats running for cover

                  That Zomby Woof is nice and not an easy find. I have it on CD. Well done. If you don't like it, and fancy a trade, lemme no.

                    Great single always loved it since i heard it on the Rubble comps, the US one is easier to turn up...Nice finds as usual Lee mate.

                        I think you gave me a copy too - somebody did So if I have the Rokes, the Grassroots and the Living Daylights do I have any other versions to find?

                          Depends how desperate you are really.
                          Steer clear of the Tempest version, can't bring myself to post it.
                          Back in the early 80s (yes, that psych revival!) there were a few versions floating about.




                          I think you have the versions that matter, so relax

                            Think the Rokes do two versions, one in Italian and one in English.

                              Let's live for today has a fascinating story you can read herehttp://www.musicaememoria.com/let_s_...ay_history.htm
                              Honestly, i've heard it first by LOTNC but i wouldn't recommend it
                              Also read some years ago that Sylvie Vartan covered it in french back in the 60's but still haven't found any clue (even if she has a song called "Sha La La")
                              For some reason, I ride for the Slickee Boys version, anachronic (1978) & lovingly weird.
