    2nd 45 by the Count Five. Classic garage.

    Sunshine/ jangle from The Shady Days released in 67. The two tracks on this 45 were previously released in 66 by The Revelles. Obviously Shady Days was a more fashionable name in 67. Byrdsy sounds.

    From the 2nd lp.1970. Heavy groover. The 45 is shorter than the lp version in the clip.

    Lovely 45. Probably comped on a Fading Yellow style lp, but I could be wrong. 1968, Sutherland Brothers before Quiver.

    Found this on the local market

    Notable for the inclusion of this stomper...among others.

    Yeah - you should have.

    The Stan Borys I nearly lost - an elder man and his wife were going through the 2 crates before me, he turned around and said to me "lots of Polish stuff here if that interests you", he flicked past most of them quickly but stopped and picked up the Stan Borys to inspect it further, then put it back, sighed and went and paid for whatever he and his wife did find.

    The Breakout is a great find - I only have that uglier later pressing... (I think - or did I replace it at one time and forgot about it?)

    I did run into a Polish lady and her husband. She was amazed that I was interested in her old Polish records. I was amazed that the classic rock dealers, who were all at the fair hours before me didn't buy them on the strength of their covers alone. She did say she had more, with hindsight I probably should have tried to get her number and then gone to visit her.

    So... did you also run into a Polish immigrant? I only got a Stan Borys yesterday because the rest of his records weren't very interesting, but I'm very happy with that.

    These are from the last couple of weeks from charities, record fairs, boot sales, actual shops and a few from online sources.



    These were all from one online seller. I bought one LP from him and then he kept sending me sound clips from other LP's and the more I took the cheaper they got! Some cool jazz, German Xian funk and some funky East Euro beat bits!



    The Night Club 67 was from the same seller as above. The Jorge Ben and the Super Diamond of Dakar LPs were both from SmashingCheeseGrommit (thanks mate!)

    The other 4 were from either a Saturday morning jaunt to Spitafields or a local fair. Was very pleased to get the Johnny Griffin which is great.



    The first two were from Spitafields. The other three were from today from shops and market stalls around East London. The Clydene Jackson had been on my wants list for ever.




    Got lucky today at this mornings boot fair. This is the first one I've been to this year, might stop now whilst I'm ahead.
    A couple of these are spares, most I've not had a chance to listen to. I've got high hopes though!

    Went for what is colloquially (well, in my house) known as a 'bimble' round the charity shops of Mansfield and Ashfield on Friday. Haven't tossed 50p pieces around with such recklessness since I used to go to football in the 80s!

    Not a great haul, but I enjoyed myself and I did manage to grab a couple of things that I've been after for ages.




    Got my 80s on here, good and proper. Believe it or not, those Scritti 12"s and the TFF 12" have been on my Wants list for ages. I just didn't want to get them off eBay as I had faith that I'd eventually get them in the wild. But 'eventually' seemed to become ever more elastic.........................until Friday. I love these early/mid 80s 12"s where the pop act belied an ear for the dancefloor, that 'White Boy Funk' feel. I also love coke-fuelled bombast or ZTT / Trevor Horn productions for much the same reason. The Mathilde Santing I picked up as I recognised her from my days of reading NME back when it was good. It's not a keeper, nor is it offensive (well, the synths are pretty jarring actually), just a bit tame for me. Free to a good home.




    More 'exotica'. These were all from Cancer Research in Sutton, which has suddenly had an in-flux of vinyl (including two record boxes full under the racks). Think I'll hang on to the Les Sans Nom for a little while, as I detected some potential among the cabaret stylings. But the others can be added to my latest freebies, just give me a shout.




    The Chequers came from Sie Fly and I shall reciprocate ASAP. Paul Kent came from a proper shop (more of which shortly) but, sadly, I think I'll be moving it on as I didn't find it had much direction, bit too 'jack of all trades and master of none'. Donovan and Al Hirt came from aforementioned Cancer Research shop. Donovan is a Belgian comp - pretty sure that Donovan founded Belgium (I'll check it on Wikipedia) and the Al Hirt is one of those that has some tasty grooves, but never quite lets itself go enough - sufficient on there to hang on to it for a second listen.




    The two Xian LPs by the lovely Mildred Rainey were also from Cancer Research. The first one, where she's smiling ostensibly innocently, is pretty dreadful (to my ears anyway), the second one, where she's got that look of the lass you said 'Hello' to as you passed in the corridor at work, only to find her outside your house that night, claiming you promised to marry her, is actually pretty good as the backing musicians give the warbled hymns a sort of Latin Jazz swing. If you see it for cheap, grab it. The well-known Bugs Bunny LP can also be a freebie, as can Lionel Morton's LP (potential Kiddie Folk action?). Had to chuckle at Lionel as he's more Lion-O. Have you ever seen a man more leonine on an album cover? He looks like he's mid-metamorphosis!


    Anyway, while in Sutton, I popped in to see if Mark has made any progress on sorting / filing the umpteen thousands of records he had in when I last visited some months ago. He has..........................after a fashion. When I arrived, a chap was there, filling his van as Mark has decided to sell (to dealers) 'pot luck' bags records or pallets. You take whatever's on the pallet or in the dumpster. Works quite well for fellas who plan to offload them via a market stall or booter. I put it to Mark that he might have let some rare and valuable stuff go that way, but he's of the opinion that "what the eye doesn't see, the heart doesn't grieve for" - a healthy and admirable approach. I'd get the willies myself.

    I had a couple of hours rummaging through myself. Mark's in the process of using these dealers to clear a bit of space so that the many thousands more can be brought from 'upstairs' / 'round the back' etc and on to the shop floor. Remember I mentioned last time that he'd acquire liquidated stock from a chart return shop in Chesterfield? You can tell a lot of the stuff came from a chart shop, there's lots of dance stuff, UK releases of various rap albums and 12"s, plenty of metal and indie etc. Then there's the stuff brought in from Oxfam warehouses etc. So there's oodles of chud to wade through, but I'm sure there are jewels in there. Huge amount of Classical, but I think several specialists have twigged and are regular visitors. The pricing is fair, there's a £5 section and a £3 section (7"s are cheaper, but I never look at them) and the more you buy, the cheaper it will get. I think Mark lists some stuff on Amazon (new one on me) and has done Ok that way, shifting the Oasis LPs he ended up with. Definitely worth popping in to spend several hours digging, even if you end up record blind and overwhelmed like me, you'll even get to play with Kaiser, the lovely big Mastiff!!

    This is the view you get as you step through the door:





    This is same area, but from Mark's desk: (See the far end, where it's partitioned? There's stacks behind there waiting to be brought through. Getting a bit damp that end though.)




    At the back of Mark's desk:




    Back through the door where the stuff being sold by volume is stored / going from:






    And, under almost all the racks / tables:





    PM me if you need further details. It's open Friday / Saturday as a rule, but you can arrange a special visit on other days.

    Just back from the booter, picked up a President comp from the mid 70's that I'd not seen before plus second edition copies of Led Zeppelin 2 and 3. Oh, and a mint copy of the Easy Rider OST for Wuggsy, he's been after a decent copy of ages. All a quid each. Sorted.
