    Emil trying to do folk-rock:

    Comment


    • Popped into Salvation Army yesterday at lunchtime, they had a new box of Xian records in, few odd folk records in there too. Punted on two for 50p each:



      The Carraig Aonair is absolutely gorgeous atmospheric Welsh folk with a variety of instruments including synth. The Vera Aspey is on Topic, bit too trad for me but I'll give it another chance.

      • Two posts in a row? I am having a cracking time this month, though.



        Traded in a few from the out pile, and left clutching these:
        Quincy Jones - In The Heat Of The Night. Classic.
        Galt MacDermot - Cotton Comes To Harlem. Not so classic, but has moments.
        De Wolfe - Z Patrol. I've backed off on libraries, but couldn't resist this one, stomping crime jazz of an epically strident nature plus a few dream/hallucination pieces.
        Charlie Byrd - Latin Impressions. Think this is a fine one, interesting to hear him play the tiple as well as guitar, the Villa Lobos piece is great.




        Acquired via the old-fashioned and quaint charity shop route.

        Finbar and Eddie Furey - The Dawning Of The Day. The first Finbar & Eddie album in my dad's collection was my first exposure to Irish folk (along with The McPeakes), still highly rate it. Great to find this, both for the fabulous music and for the fashion pointers on the cover.
        Martin Denny - Forbidden Island. No way I was leaving this duplicate behind, stunning album cover and wonderful exotica music.
        Herbie Hancock and Foday Musa Suso - Village Life. This is an interesting combo of kora and synth playing, restrained and improvisational rather than funky.
        Kongas - Africanism. Ripe disco nonsense with Cerrone involvement.

        • Went for a drive in the Essex countryside yesterday and found a chazzer in Thaxted. Old school village with records at proper old school charity shop prices. Nothing too amazing, but a couple of nice bits and bobs.

          Beatles is an outline mono first.
          Sergio is clean as you like.
          Tighten Up and Harry J were suitable filthy and looked like they'd had beer spilled on them at some point, but cleaned up well. Both good antidotes to watching the footie last night!

            Does this one plays through well? I got a minty version of this but some songs are skipping, can't see why.

                No problems with my copy, either.

                  Good find

                    I just checked and I have 7 Martin Denny albums which were all from charity shops or booters. Same with Arthur Lyman.

                    Which might just suggest I've spent too much time in charity shops and booters!

                    That's the first one I've turned up in a long time though.
