    Some of these are from the tail end of last month.

    Found these at the Record Bar in West Norwood (45s), a tiny local record fair, most of the jazz came cheap from a mainly 78 and rock n roll fair and finally a couple Howling Sounds in Ramsgate.

    Yeah it was ok but nothing amazing. Suprised at how sought after it was. Now if the woman that sold me all the US LP's calls me back i will quite happy as i have a feeling she has a lot more interesting stuff.

    Just a little furniture shop material going cheap:



    Dan Lacksman Association - Flamenco Moog An semi-expected two-tracker delight. This is a strange one in terms of labels - Most of his releases are credited with distribution in Belgium, but apparently an Australian budget label got hold of it somehow as I now have several things by him. Most of it's your general moog and drums material - above par, since it's nearly all original compositions beside the inevitable "Popcorn" - but the real meat comes in on the B-side with "Lonely Days" and "The Sound of My Love", both presumably having Dan singing - the former being a something of a psychedelic dirge, and the latter being a ballad laden with mellotrons, weird whooshing, and some lovely electric guitar. Very pleasing.

    Of course, I'm probably going on about something well known here?



    John Elder - Derelicts Unusual 1987 Australian jazz-ambiance - field recordings of homeless people, fake-sounding keyboards, and excellent harmonica playing. Some vocalists on the B-side. No idea what to make of it - not quite my bag, but I think I'll keep it for a while unless anybody's had it on their want list.

    Wendy Carlos - Sonic Seasonings This has been in the back of my mind for a little while, so it was nice to find, but ultimately a disappointment. No baroque suites here - it's 60% field recordings, 40% textural synthesizer. A couple of nice bits but hardly worth a double album. I did find a sample I've been wondering about for ages though, so not a complete wash.

    Lipps, Inc - Pucker Up Straightforward 1980 electro-disco, but the engineering sounds wonderful and whoever's singing has some pipes. Been spun the most today actually.

    EDIT: just looked up RNI - some of the DJ names are excellent...

    Robin Adcroft as "Robin Banks"
    "Daffy" Don Allen
    Roger "Twiggy" Day
    Arnold Layne
    Spangles Muldoon aka Chris Carey
    Louise Quirk
    I remember listening to RNI although none of the DJ names ring any bells now. I notice one of the ships it broadcast from was Mi Amigo. I remember that name, Caroline used to broadcast from that ship too I think?

    Tom Rush has got some great stuff in his back catalogue (especially the stuff on Elektra) mainly in the ssw/folk troubadour mold but he also knew his r'n'b onions as well...
