          Thanks. I was wondering if these might be the first songs by Verckys since joining the group the previous year.

          • just the one for me so far this month.



            there was a pile of them (all looked minty, tbh), but i left the rest cos that's what we're supposed to do, isn't it.

            and after a listen, i'll probably get rid of this one, it's just not my sort of thing....

              Did you get it from a skip?

Blends together Quo riffage, cheesy lyrics and plenty of air horns to great effect.
                I never knew that existed, a good find there. "Magic" was of course Bill's catchphrase from the 1970s sitcom 'Oh No, It's Selwyn Froggitt!'.

                • mopping up time

                  LPs



                  Most of this lot from the £1 bins of the Meadows festival
                  Shapes and sounds - I don't normally buy reissues / comps but this was cheap and it had a version of 'Just Dropped In' by DDDBM&T and very decent it is too! The LP is all unreleased radio session and its rather good - anyone got the earlier volumes?
                  Youngblood Comp - has 'I'm Alive' and was purchased to move on but it also has the killer 'Captain Man' on it so I'm keeping it for now.
                  Beat-Line of Today is a rather good / interesting comp of eastern blok rock - psych, prog and pop all covered.
                  US exploito thing - Stones, Kinks, Small Faces covered but all to faithful to be good.
                  BBC story with some Radiophonics wibbling
                  Xian rock - dull
                  Pretty decent Fairport if you can get with the singing.
                  TV and the Tribesmen - is it exploito soul? Pretty good and funky!
                  Chico - spare for Eric (I think)
                  Mary Wells - couldn't leave this in the £1 bin - very nice
                  Gabor - psych jazz classic
                  Trojan Funky Chicken - at flippin' last - superb funky reggae LP!

                  45s - had a lot in the door mainly due to a sight unseen prearranged buy of a box of 'interesting records' Highlights.

                  • baws! Can't edit to add text!

                    Pic sleeve 45s -

                    I Nomadi - nice heavy psych cover of a Rare Bird track - cheers Craig.
                    Claude Francois - does a nice take on "Games People Play' and an excellent go at Joe Tex's 'Show Me'. Anyone got a spare of his version of 'I'm Alive' for me?
                    Swell Maps - Lets Build a Car - at last - been looking for one of these for ages - great track and what an intro!!



                    first 45 pic (apologies for mis matched sleeves you sensative chaps...you know who you are - I'll get on that asap)

                    Early Lulu NS tinged groover
                    Herman's Hermits - my reservations been confirmed - a UK copy at last - suprisingly hard to find for a big hit A side!
                    Humphrey and the Palookas - Careless Love - possibly my fave from the 'unknown box' - great upbeat mod sound



                    Pepperman! Cheers Craig (Again)
                    The Witches and the Warlocks - Nowhere to Run - great garagey version.
                    Another garage version of Knock on Wood! How many were there?
                    the Rondels - Back Beat no1 - great sleazy instro with drum workout
                    Shades of Blue - Happiness - great soul dancer with bells!
                    The Roosters - Garage strangeness!

                    2nd Pic

                    Kim Weston - I Got What you Need - lovely soul dancer
                    The Bluebells - Squeegie - fantastic tittyshaker (are we allowed to say that still? Never been too comfortable with it tbh)
                    Harper Bizzare - I Love You Alice B Toklas - nice pop sike
                    Lou Reizner - Get a Bloomin' move on - Italian Job sin along - needs a PVA
                    Clouds - Heritage - nice organ led late 60s paisley tinged rock
                    Fred Wesley and the JBs - Same Beat - might be a spare but couldn't resist for a quid
                    TNT - Whip Your Loving on Me - funky soul
                    Barbara Keith - All Along the Watchtower - nice UK demo - US spare gone now
                    The Gestures - Run Run Run - more nice garage.

                    3rd Pic

                    Lost Generation - Sly, Slick and Wicked - downtempo funk
                    The Bad Habits - Images : the City - horn rocky psych
                    Linda Riggs - Runaround Heart - nice uptempo RnB
                    Hannibal - I Think We've Met Before - nice uptempo funky RnB
                    DC Hawks - No No No - groovy horn rocker
                    Nolan Strong - Mind Over Matter - I think this might be Popcorn but I never know these things - I like anyway
                    Sonny Green - Jody's on the Run - Vietnam themed funk
                    Frank Dell - He Broke Your Game Wide Open - for a brief moment I thought this was an orig but no such luck. Terrible boot - sounds like someone in the next room is playing it - the only boot in the entire box too - bah!
                    Baby Washington - nice bit of 70s soul - not usually my cup of tea but I like this one.

                    Spares from the box pic

                    Bonnie is a nice girl group thing
                    Galaxies is a nice surf / garage thing
                    The Wammack is well know on here and is essential IMHO

                    if you fancy any just drop me a PM.

                    Not sure what to do with the other 30 odd 45s in the box - largely doo wop, some RnR and popcorny stuff - further listens may pay off I suppose.

                        Yeah, great B side...It's the dude out of 'Triangle'.

                        You'll also really like that 'Mark & the Escorts' Lee man.

                        Nice haul BTW mate.

                        • Lee, don't know about mopping up....cleaning up more like!
                          Re the Shapes and sounds lps. I've got the lot, and think they are great. I'm not averse to a good comp myself, had plenty of good steers from them.
                          All the Top Sounds lps are worth checking out IMO. Recently they put out a great 45 of The Purple Barrier Dawn Breaks Through 45 on heavy wax.
                          They are obviously a labour of love. The booklets that come with them are mines of info and really nicely put together.
                          I recall reading (might even have been in the liner notes, can't remember to be honest) that a lot of the Top Gear etc recordings come from a guy who used to record everything from radio & tv on a reel to reel, and has a massive collection of this stuff, which the Top Sounds guy is slowly putting out selectively. Look At The Sun, Alphabeat and Radio Tymes are all worth a listen too.

                          That keeps you from being a part of it all
                          Because you've got to be one with the one and all
                          You've just got to be close to it all

                              as for 'Knock On Wood' there are a number of garage versions here

                              The board must be aware of this large garage compilations list. Having fun for a long while digging it in ABC order

                                I actually have some friends that did the same thing with Italian Western locations. They travelled to Spain a couple times around 2004-05 and found the locations for stuff like Fistful, Good/Bad/Ugly, Duck You Sucker, Navajo Joe, etc (mainly the Leone films). Their photos were used for extras on the Fistful Of Dollars/Few Dollars More Special Edition dvds if anyone is interested in seeing them.
