    I had a random wander round the hinterland between Nottingham and Derby (proper bandit country) hitting charity shops as I came across them, relieving them of any interesting vinyl and books, then fleeing the scene. I took in Ilkeston, Belper, Ripley, Eastwood and Kimberley.

    I do these things so that you don't have to.

    My finds for the day (and a couple of others chucked in):




    Three of the above came from the back-room of a Lighthouse shop, the staff kindly allowed me to go through and have a rummage. If nowt else, I've added to the 'spares' pile in case anyone needs these. I think 'Voodoo Party' is now the title that I'm pathologically unable to leave behind when seen for pennies.




    Guess which one of these came off eBay? Yup, Cher. Purchase completely influenced by the recent BBC4 documentary on the Muscle Shoals sound. Haven't had chance to play it yet, dead busy at the mo, but looking forward to a proper listen as I've read good things. Chuffed to bits to nail two more Scritti Politti 12"s. Mad that I've been after them for months and had no joy, then I take two trips out on consecutive weeks and tick off each one that I wanted. I'm also partial to The Associates and find their ecstacy-fuelled indulgences great fun.




    Some random 'exotic' stuff to rehome in the vicinity. The top left one turned out to be a marching band and was awful, so it went in my BIN section. BIN meaning 'in the bin', taken out of circulation with extreme prejudice. Had a quick listen to the Digni Garcia, fearing the worst, but there's a quite beaty track on there that I might listen to again, before the rehoming.




    These were all from the aforementioned back-room, there was so much big band stuff that it was ridiculous. I just made up the numbers with a few extra bits to take down the market to bulk out my usual trades package. Have filed the Dankworth in my 'spares' though.




    These were among the last things I got, when my blood sugars and powers of reasoning had started to drop badly. The Rodrigo and Len Magee were both abysmal and have been added to the BIN section (I put the sleeves in the recycling bin, re-use the inners and the vinyl goes in with the household rubbish). The Percussion one will be a freebie and the Bill Bryson would be a Waxidermy 'boner' I reckon, but it's so bonkers that I think someone round here could probably use it. Says it's an '82 release (on Whale Rock Music!) but tracks date back to the early 70s and he's one of these private press multi-instrumentalists, with the emphasis on 'mentalist'. Anyhoo, there's one track with a female guest vocalist that's kind of folktronica, then there's a tune 'St Michael's Mount' that's almost acid folk / SSW. Really odd and self-indulgent stuff, but fair fucks to him.

    And, yesterday, I decided to trek down to the market, despite pissing rain and traded in two bags of chuff for...........




    Bang.

    Crikey Lee, that's a set in itself! Got a few of those, but some excellent stuff I will be on the hunt for. I wonder if the rest of the Snow lp is anywhere near as good as that 45? Anyone heard it? Brilliant tune.

    Thanks man! As mr sayers and Sie-Fly have said, the Hollins & Starr is top quality throughout but that track just floored me too. Unfortunately the girl on the track doesn't feature again on the record I don't think.
    Always been perplexed by that...she deserved to get more vocals on that LP.

    Asterix is a great 45. Must admit I didn't know it got a UK release. I've got this (German) version which can be pretty cheap to pick up (lots on CDandlp)

    From shops today:



    Don Robertson - Dawn
    Improvised psychedelic new age with percussion, sitar, bird and rain sounds etcetera.

    Donald Byrd - Ethiopian Knights
    Excellent spaced out jazz-funk.

    Harry Partch - The World of...
    First Partch record I buy despite his name having been in the back of my head for 15 years or more. Exotica-type percussion driven avantgarde classical on homebuilt instruments. Great stuff.

    This was about half the stuff i got from last sunday's bootfairs. Nothing more than a pound each and most around 50p or less. Again it was a complete mish mash of stuff.





    Ninja Tune is Amon Tobin. Gallery is still sealed. Corky and Yaka is quality underground hardcore from late 1992.



    Trashmen is a reissue



    Beltram is UK Energy Flash



    Top Right is Janet Kay - Eternally Grateful. Bottom left is Jazzy Dee - Get On Up



    Motown is Willie Hutch ‎– In And Out / Brother's Gonna Work It Out. Kraftwerk is UK original.



    Top right looked well interesting but is pretty crap.





    And to finish a bundle of lovers rock with amazing company sleeves

    4 records I haven't heard, and now I want to hear them all. Well impressed with the Hollins & Starr track you put up. I'll definitely be investigating that one further. All really good. Look forward to the rest of your finds

    a couple of longterm Bolly wants have finally nestled into the collection:



    And see if you can guess which is the good tune on this late-80s Tamil OST? (not that you can see from the photo )



    …that's right - "Computer Music". Flipping bonkers!
