  • deeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee eeeep record.

    sleeve and original liner note/ insert are minty fresh, the vinyl was graded at "good", lots of surface marks but play through with pretty miminal/ light noise. v happy to bag this for a fair price.

    also picked up this swinger:

    Another record from 1966 with (yet) another version of Kenny Rankin's "In The Name Of Love", and it's a swinger. might Brillo it this Friday.

    and I went into Haggle and had to leave. gosh, i'd forgotten.


    • Haggle does my head in too nowadays. Something to do with being old & grumpy and him Only good deal I ever got in there was when he had gone out for lunch, and the oriental girl sold me a load of 45s she had no idea about apparently I tend to pass it by if I'm up that way. Sad I know

      • I don't often post in these finds threads, because, well I don't really find that much noteworthy.

        But a mate's father passed away some time ago and he was some sort of hoarder. His house was full of all kinds of shit. Among them some records. 95% was crap music, but managed to score a few things:

        Neu! is Green Brain. Too bad there's some writing on the sleeve, other than that, Nice condition. (spare)

        Vanilla Fudge - Rock n Roll - Not so bad - Us Press

        Kandahar is some Belgian jazz rock fusion (or something like that) Pretty good and pretty sought after (spare)

        Boudewijn De Groot - Nacht en Ontij: Dutch psychedelia

        The Underground thing is a compilation album with Country joe and the fish and some others.

        Boris Vian - French singer/songwriter who was a big influence on Serge Gainsbourg

        And then, not a record, but still very pleased with this.

        My mate said, well there are also some vintage posters:

            • Frits Katee, Dutch rare groove, great Herbie Hancock cover. Chris McGregor In his Good time, solo piano free jazz.

              Madonna, guilty pleasure, original 2LP. Stockhausen, avantgarde, mostly Electronic.

              Pretty Things, SF Sorrow, Psych classic, UK gatefold sleeve Dutch press. OMD is an oldtime favorite from the 80s.

              Azymuth, Japanese original, rare brazil record I have been after for a while. Another Stockhausen, I don't feel this one yet.

              One for the sleeve the other well known here. Saw it a lot lately on VG+.

              Kurt Edelhagen, Funky Lounge, actually very nice too.

              Found lot's of well known 80s Jazz/Funk all in new condition ... couldn't leave those behind.

              And now I got two ...

              Bintangs, raw Dutch blues. Bennie Maupin, spare jazz funk.

              Muddy Waters Electric Mud, fav, found an USA copy to replace my Dutch press.

              David Bowie is a first press with fanclub booklet.

              Another spare on Maupin, one of the best jazz funk records out there. The Falling Stones is Surinam Funk Soul.

              George Duke is a nice UK copy, fully laminated. Haven't listen to this 3lp set of Godley and Creme.

              Two spare copies, although I'll keep both Wire's USA and UK press.

              Jon Hassell, electronic avantgarde jazz.

              Paris France Transit, great rare Disco album and a beautiful Eartha.

              3 French soundtracks with a couple of disco tracks.

              Made a scratch on my Duke copy so had to buy a new one. UK first press Black Sabbath.

              Great Lalo Horror soundtrack, more horror.

              Three classic albums.

              Angel Unchained, great Biker soundtrack with a couple of funky tracks.

              One for the cover, not bad too.

              Got this boxes, mainly rare Italo, some Disco and Hip Hop ... from for to one. Lots of crap too.

                      Having a sabbatical at the moment so have tons of time to go daily to thrift stores, shops and flea markets. These records can be found on workdays not in the weekend.

                            Get 'em framed sharpish, and keep 'em out of the sunlight!!
                            Fleas the size of rats suck on a rat the size of a cat....

                            Not As Great As His Very Best, But Pretty Much As Great As Most Anyone Else's.


                            • Probably one of my best booter finds this morning... I was having to make to with a Dave Baby Cortez 45 and the Manfred Mann "Michelin Theme" 45 (in the original sleeve) when I found this in a pile of utter chaff...

                              UK original from 1970, laminated sleeve... (this isn't the picture of my copy, I'll have to find the camera first)
                              If you're looking for a pristine copy then this isn't the one for you. The vinyl looks like someone has polished their brickwork with it and the label has been ruined by some fool with a pen.


                              • Sorry for somewhat late contribution. June and May combination. Some are not listened yet. By and large, happy with everything. All the stuff is chiefly soviet but for several Eastern Europeans.

                                Sabbath on Melodiya (N.I.B. is killing under any label).

                                Pinks on Amiga (they are good, are they? German trivia at the back sleeve is a maze)
                                Various - Естрадна Палитра (Variety Palette) (Balkanton, not for sale/trade thx to Rotation - Ra-Ta-Ta aboard)

                                Omega - Gammapolis (Side B is strange and appealing)

                                Deák Big Band - Örökszép Melódiák (got this one gratis from a mate and knew nothing about it. waiting for a spin. 'big band' hooked my nut.)
                                Фанк-Профиль - В Сторону Солнца (wanted for a long while. now pending. some Russian ska/funk)
                                Александр Градский - Утопия А. Г. (9th LP by Gradksy to the collection. breaks).

                                Концертный Ансамбль Электромузыкальных Инструментов ЦТ и ВР* - Счастье Мое - Мелодии Прошлых Лет (light electro vibes. no breaks. qualifies)

                                Captain Vrungel Adventures . One of my favorite soviet cartoons to begin with. 2 Lps. randomly funky.
                                Big Bend SFB* , Conductor Paul Kuhn - Big Bend SFB With Soloists (including Joy Fleming. at least three tracks are worth being regarded. A6 'Gringo Domingo' in particular)
                                some soviet groovy pop.
                                Эстрадный Оркестр Латвийского Телевидения И Радио п/у Иварса Вигнерса* - Музыка Над Морем. Инструментальные Песни

                                Доника Венкова - Доника Венкова (A Balkanton disco diva. The last track on side A has a short B-boy break.)
                                Оркестр П/У Павла Овсянникова - Звездный Вираж (Unexpectedly good space-oriented effort. Side A is a proper stuff and side B are covers).
                                Диско - Диско (hooray. I frew out two from the same box one for myself in a stock sleeve and the other with OG cover for my best friend who I was diggin with that day with.

                                Overlooked when taking snaps. Their second. 9 or so minutes of lounge breaks.

                                + forgot to report I got this one. Million copies were released. But snatch and run.

                                The 7 inch pack. All of them are groovy funk/funky groove soviet VIAs. Gaya, Polad Bul Bul Ogly, Tsvety, Rotaru, Zatsepin OSTs, Via Norok etc. Breaks galore.
                                Standing out are seriously rare IMHO Leo Martin on Melodiya, two Gaya tracks on flexi and that red Ukrainian folk groove comp.

                                What is funny is that 'Ima Vremena' on this soviet 7inch is somewhat weaker than that above and without UH UH at the beginning. Were there two by Martin? His Lp and genuine 45 single both have include the track. Do they differ in that uh-uh vibe?

                                Blimey it took me two hours to make a post. I could have had a pre-football game doze. Dismissed. Willing to share.
                                Happy digging to every one!
