    Bought a load of LP, 12", 10", 7" and some CD's off my local dealer to flip



    Loads of newish rock, punk and folky stuff. These were some the older bits in amongst it



    Contempo is The Armada Orchestra The / Ultrafunk - For The Love Of Money / Sting Your Jaws (Part 1)



    Television is the red vinyl version

    And heres what i kept myself



    Aphrodites Child is recentish double reissue. Mamas and Papas is reissue and Bladerunner is the 2003 bootleg version

    After i'd bought the collection i noticed that my dealer had a small stack of LP's in his kitchen so i went through them as well. Much more like my kind of stuff



    Bill Withers is a UK original




    Trip to London's MVE's on Friday just gone garned me these



    Think the Everyday People is a reissue but not sure how to check to find out. Its a white label copy.

    These were from some charity shops in the commuter town of Beckenham for a pound each



    Sonsong is a popsikeable Jesus record apparantly!

    And these are some other random bits ive found recently



    Virgin is U Brown - Black Star Liner 12". Bottom left is a triple vinyl country compilation called Open Country that i can't find any details of although i havent really tried much past checking Discogs.

    The Open Country is..


    (Taken from EIL.COM)

    VARIOUS Open Country (Rare 1972 UK mail order only 38-track triple compilation LP issued exclusively by The Sunday Times Magazine & unavailable in retail outlets, including the bizarre 'May The Bird Of Paradise Fly Up Your Nose' by Little Jimmy Dickens amongst the more usual fare)

      Popped to the market on Friday morning - walked into an unexpected fire sale and picked up the following for £2 each...















      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.

        Very nice grabbage there, Sie.

        And... Satan Superstar! I have been hoping to turn one of those up forever... I suspect it's probably awful, but still. Satan Superstar!

          Saturday - some proper shop action...







          Found a load of TG records in the New Arrivals box - I left some of the classics (Annual Report 2 & 3, Heathen Earth) and instead picked up a replacement 20 Jazz Funk Greats and a US-only best of compilation that I've never seen before. The Industrial Records retrospective I used to own, but long gone...


          Some decent reggae bits - never seen this Trojan album before...

            Thanks... It's funny - you weren't the first person to react like that to Satan Superstar... St Jude popped around on Friday night and did a cartwheel too..!

              Sunny and windy at the booters this morning...

              The Jazzy Dee is a new one to me - really good tune... plus a couple of nice doubles for future trades...

                Had the pleasure of showing ETK around some of Tokyo's record emporia yesterday.
                Managed to pick up a couple of nice bits for myself:

                Minako Yoshida - Tobira no Fuyu (Hosono produced with most of Happy End as backing band)




                Lalo Schiffrin - Battlecreek Brawl (minty promo with obi and insert to replace my copy)



                and a cheeky wee 45 for playing out

                  I picked up three Rock News LP's recently as part of a collection.



                  Released on Teldec in Germany in the early 70s they are a collection of well and more obscure prog/rock artists. I've never come across them before, I'm curious if anybody knows what they were all about (promos, bootlegs??).

                    Promos. Teldec was formed 1950 by the merger of Telefunken and Decca.

                      Just back from a week in New York.

                      Stayed in an apartment in Williamsburg through Airbnb. Great location, one block down from Bedford, 20 metres from Junk!

                      Williamsburg is still a great place to stay. The area itself is still full of great restaurants and hip bars but the area is rapidly changing. Many of the old warehouses are gone and have been replaced with apartment tower blocks. Greenpoint is growing too and I’m sure will soon go the way of Williamsburg.

                      Went to plenty of record shops. There are still a few left in Williamsburg but the best in the area are now in Greenpoint (Co-op 87, Academy, Grouch, and Permanent Records.) There is also a new store just opened up which looked to have potential (Captured Tracks.)

                      Also went to the shops in the Lower East Side (Good Records, Kim’s, A1, and Academy.)

                      Went to a few others located in mid town and on the Upper West Side.

                      Also went to the Williamsburg Flea and Artists and Flea and caught the Brooklyn Record Riot on my last day in town.

                      Other than record shops I managed to get to a few galleries.

                      Loved the show at Moma PS1 (Mike Kelley.) Absolutely crazy stuff! The show goes on till Feb so if you are in town I would highly recommend checking it out.

                      http://momaps1.org/exhibitions/view/374

                      Also went to the Whitney to see the Pop Art show of Robert Indiana which was also cool.

                      http://whitney.org/Exhibitions/RobertIndiana

                      Also went to Five Pointz, New York’s graffiti mecca. If you’ve not been to see the building do so quickly as the city council has just agreed for it to be knocked down and replaced with apartment buildings.



                      Onto the records:



                      Rolf Ericson – Oh Pretty Little Neida – Great Swedish jazz found in Permanent Records. Rotar Rotor is a great bit of funky jazz! Check out Consequences here.

This one has tracks by the Cycle-Mates, Boston Tea Party and Orphan Egg. These are all new names to me! The title theme is a great fuzz distorted groove!

                      Sopwith Camel – The Miraculous Hump Returns From the Sun – Love the track Fazon! So, so good! Found this in a store on Bleeker. The one where all the records are in the basement (Bob’s??) Asked if he had a copy and he went to check, came back with a mint copy with a $50 price tag on it. I politely explained that I did not want to pay anything like that. I made an offer of $15 to which he replied well I don’t think anyone else will ever buy it!

                      Found all these kiddie LP’s in Junk. I’m expecting most to be terrible but I’m hoping that there might be one or two gems in amongst them.
                      I did see that Johnny Trunk put the title track from Spin Spider Spin on his Fuzzy Felt comp.

                          Nope, had 12kg spare weight in my hold luggage so a load went in there.

                          The rest came with me on the plane in my trusty record bag!
