      Straight after I got back from NY I headed off to Amsterdam for the week staying on a friend’s house boat.

      Went to all of the usual shops, plus markets plus bits picked up from friends. All of the shops are still there, plus there are two new ones. There is now a map of the independent record shops in the city that you can pick up in the shops to find out where they are.

      Most stuff I picked up was pretty cheap with a couple of more expensive ones which I’m sure you’ll spot.



      Most of the 45’s were picked up for a euro in Waxwell’s new budget store which is next door to the main shop. Worth having a look despite the place being run by a local digger.

      P.W. Cannon – Hey Hey – Funky soulful harmonica track.
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bCV_w-UhcjE

      Mickey Murray – Shout Bamalama – Cool update R&B number with gospel undertones.
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cwRxJaIM4us

      Brian Bennett – Clearing Skies – Not seen this Bennett 45 before (picked up from Record Friend.) Doesn’t appear to be on an LP. Bit cheesy but some nice cosmic touched to it!
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kGXH8Ce4OI0

      Howard Carpendale – Du Hast Mich – Classic kraut funk!
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qa37Sm9mfvg

      Ashantis – Let my Love Shine / Pretty Girl – Avoid! Have an LP by these guys which has a couple of cool afro disco tracks on. This isn’t one of them.

      Howard Tate – Stop – Classic! Great horn and piano driven funk track.
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GlxbxcR1el0



      David Smith – It’s Time – Saw this and thought immediately of Waxidermy. Photo taken at the Mosrite Factory with Mr Smith posing in front of guitars. Record is out of Jacksonville Florida. Most of the tracks, to my ears at least, are pretty dull. The opening track though, A Man Called Love, is pretty cool.

      Pedro Biker - Evergreens in Danish Design – Classic Euro jazz LP. Originally thought I had found an original press but on closer examination this must be the Jap repress. Heavyweight jazz LP.
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FtVlzQ_cUIA

      New Birth – Birthday – Been buying virtually every record I see by this group recently. Listen to their Blaxploitation theme to Buck and the Preacher.
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C8rCK_VUCRo

      Astrid Gilberto – Now – My favourite LP by her on the Perception label. Her version of Take it Easy my Brother Charlie is great.
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EWv4mLbh8xo

      Boy Edgar – Boy’s Big Band Now’s the Time – Great Dutch LP from 1965 with the cream of the Netherlands players on this one. Watch the accompanying film. Very strange!!
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HEu4hqU43-8

      The JB’s – Pass the Peas – FUNK – All killer. I really like the more subtle Blessed Blackness from this LP.
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0GZjEemjs28



      Nana Caymmi – Atras da Porta – All about the track Cala Boca Menino which Joao Donato also covered.
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RcC5IeXo4SI

      Lightnin’ Red – Super Guitar of – The good Lightning Red LP. One of the best Leo Muller LP’s. So many good tracks from originals to James Brown covers.
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MRxKvn4PVFU

      Alzo – ST – One of those LPs that must have been shipped over to Holland in quantity in the 70s) as this turns up all the time. Some nice folky funk cuts on here.
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cIJrBiOodvU

      Willie Bobo – Always There – Signed copy found at flea market. Great LP. Listen to the title track.
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RoW4DxdX69s

      Felipe Campuzano – Andalucia Espiritual – I always buy this LP when I see it. I really like this progressive flamenco sound.
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RyXen...B709DA698DFC6F

      Poppys – Album 2 – Kiddie group from France. One cool downtempo track to look out for on this one. On 45 too!
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hh2UQJr9y6M



      Supermax –ST –German Euro Disco Funk. This is the US copy.
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=68ePU-qvJnI

      Sebastiao Tapajos – Terra – Another artist whose LPs I always pick up. Brazillian guitarist.

      Beltran Moner – Formula 1 – Reissue from Wah Wah of super rare Spanish library LP to accompany a motor racing TV show.
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gnQJFgtneqM

      Bombers – Mexican – One of my all-time favourite tracks and a B Boy anthem. This disco version by Bombers is not as good as the Babe Ruth original but is still great.
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aZqEZVHGAFI

      Vaughn Mason and Crew – Bounce, Rock, Skate, Roll – Great track to have on 12”.
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hta6TTs-WnQ

      Ennio Morricone – A Portrait in Music – Cheap way to get hold of the great Violent City amongst others.
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l1KbcexEK1Q



      Cameo – Cardiac Arrest – Before Cameo started wearing bright red cod-pieces they were a pretty good funk group! Check out Rigor Mortis.
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PzcOKC9ea1Y

      Terry Callier – The New Folk Sound of – So pleased to finally own an original copy of my desert island record. I could listen to this on repeat for ever. The most perfect LP ever!
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XOl5SBp3Gk8

      Ned Doheny – Hard Candy – This is one of those LPs that I’m sure nobody wanted a few years ago and now dealers can’t find enough copies! I’m sure everyone knows Get it Up for Love. If not listen.
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XwouzFuEMKI

      Duke Pearson – Prairie Dog – Beautiful jazz LP on Atlantic from 1966. The Fakir is a beautiful piece of modal jazz waltz with an eastern twinge.
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n_C-CzwzkQg

      The Transatlantic Soul Express – Let’s Get On – Not come across this Belgium LP before. Thought it might be a bit cheesy but I was so wrong. Really great LP. Check out the title track. Great euro funk!
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HFkS3uzShBY

      Clouds – Watercolour Days – UK prog act. Don’t really know much about these guys. LP is cool though.
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vUnmS4vOdv4



      Went to Rotterdam for the day too and visited the Vinyl Spot and Demonfuzz.

      Assemblage – Album – The collage front cover persuaded me to take a listen to this. I didn’t get any further than their cover of The Stones Satisfaction when I decided it was coming home with me. No idea what the rest of the LP is like yet! Any info on this band much appreciated.
      From the Youtube clip I can see it’s been comped.
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4lYdi5ct46k

      Sign of Aquarius – This looks like an obscure exploit cash in on Hair and other hippy films of the time. Would love to see this one though as the soundtrack is great. Watch this LSD trip scene!
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-96y4mlRP7o

      Raw Soul Express – ST – French press. Apparently a box of these was found in that warehouse a few years back so the price has dropped a little. Great funk LP.
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sujGKImdmM8

      Millennium – Begin – Cool psych rock LP with drums.
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VdOl2yXNFOg

      Jose Sola Y Orquestra – Ritmo Y Melodia – Not seen this one before. Heavy piano led Latin funk.

      Take a Girl like You Soundtrack – Found for a Euro on Waterloo Plein. Features tracks by The Foundations, Ram Jam Holder and Stanley Myers.
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KFzKl-CR7V8



      Picked up the majority of these at The Vinylspot. The musicianship and the quality of recording on all of these Jap LPs is superb. Each one contains at least one great funky big band number. I know there are hundreds of similar LPs out there. If anyone could point me in the direction of essential titles or artists to look out for I’d appreciate it.

      Tokyo Kid Brothers – The Moon is East, The Sun is West – Dutch only release for this Japanese Theatre Commune. This is pretty crazy stuff but there are parts when they get pretty funky. Been after one of these for a while.



      Kevin Ayres – Joy of a Toy – Recorded not long after leaving Soft Machine who also play on a couple of tracks. I really like this. What other Ayres stuff should I look out for?
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VjhOK1uR4nc

      Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band – In the Jungle Babe – Great LP from the Express Yourself gang!
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wvacg-XWwRs

      Eddy Louis & Ivan Jullien – Porgy & Bess – Great Euro funk version of George Gershwin’s music.

      SD Burman – Jewel Thief – Lone Bollywood purchase of the trip. As is often the case Dance Music is the track to head for!
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r_kXRMd7y74

      Augusto Alguero – Tuset Street – Rare Euro soundtrack (Spanish only?) Features the great track Bocaccio Soul.
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ydVohVlmcuE



      A shop in Amsterdam had bought a library collection from a local studio. He had sold loads of top titles (Stringtronics, Feelings, etc) but still had loads of gold for reasonable prices. I’d be interested to hear if anyone on hear got lucky with this collection?

      Ralph Marco Band – Make Friends – On the German Golden Ring label.
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DNx9bBJ1Oqk

      David Snell – On the Side of the Angels – Crab Apple Jam is a great down tempo funk track.
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mknnYsVaG20

      Yasotha Somasundram – India – I always pick up this Sonoton title when I see it for the track Bombay by Night.

      Jacky Giordano – Challenger – Great library on the Freesound label from France. So hard to find these.
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-X09x_sF5Qc

      Crank – Another sought after title on the Freesound label.
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VPD98fmAbR4
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1n2LQtASSjw

      Finally picked a few bits yesterday at Spitafields



      John Blackinsell – Top Hits Vol 1 – I’ve got a feeling this Alberto Balden under a different name. Two or three great Euro funk instrumentals on here.

      Marva Josie – This is – Great vocal jazz on Thimble Records. Listen to He Does it Better.
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0KzSjHG7Irs

      Dave and Dana – Come on In – Xian folky with sitar.



      Maximillan – The Snake – Big mod spin apparently. With the exception of the Jools Holland piano twinkling in the middle which thankfully doesn’t last long, this track is amazing. Probably well known around here!

                        I would recommend 'Shooting at The Moon'

                            Hello guys, I just put my hands on a rare Electrecord release from Romania - Adrian Enescu - Basorelief Poem Pop. I was waiting for a long time for this one and frankly I had no idea about the content. Now I have it and I think it's an amazing lp.


                            It sounds really libraresque and it reminds me of the french library music. If you want to hear some fuzz, percussions, female voices, flutes, synths and all that stuff put together in quite an unusual way throughout check these samples I recorded:

                              ^ Wow killer find, sounds awesome...I take it it doesn't turn up that often?

                                aka Max Crook - he played the home made electric organ on Del Shannon "Runaway" (best pop record ever!?), and think this was recorded at the same sessions - there are a load of mispressed UK copies of Runaway with this as the b-side
