  • July finds 2014

    When my time comes, this is going in the box with me!
    Finally got a minter of what I think is arguably one of the best late 60s psychedelic 2 siders. Not hard to track down, but it's got to be a nice copy for the b side which has quiet parts. As for the A side, strap in for some dark frazzled lyrics frantic drumming spikey guitars....Damn it's good. Best thing I read about the album these tunes ended up on was in The Endless Trip, "If the sun went down in California when the airborne tambourine on Kak's LP sleeve landed, this is the soundtrack to the dead of night that followed" (Dominic Stinton)
    Straight in the top drawer......for now

        Actually from last weekend, those where 3 for €10, and today trades



        Faith Faith ... from circa late '70s. Private press xian rarity that seems to be a recent 'new' discovery in Holland. Next level modern soul and outsider disco with sophisticated lo-fi arrangements featuring spacey synthesizers a la Milton Wright and Stevie Wonder / latin congas / funky drums and spiritual voices. Tripped-out funk on PSALM 117 with Mulatu Of Ethiopia cum experimental Roy Ayers style vibes and percussion / hip hop beats / arcade game bleeps / boogie bass / counterpoint vocals and scat harmony. Great for DJs. THE LIGHT and PROMISE have elements similar to early Patrick Adams P&P disco and other indie soul sounds with conga breaks and beats. Mellow funky groove on LET US BE ONE with exotic marimba solos and twilight moods into groovy electronica with voices on FADE AWAY. Clever, funky rhythm changes on HAPPINESS / BORN AGAIN and LET IT SHINE. Moody vocal jazz with disco funk on PSALM 150. Our sound clip opens with PSALM 117 followed by sections of breaks and other spaced-out samples from nearly every track (in no particular order). Fresh drums and keyboards for producers and mix tape makers. Back of gatefold sleeve shows a cool image of the group on stage too. Very glad to pull this so cheap, NM



        Madura Madura ... Prog Psych Jazz thing



        Miles Davis Get Up With It ... follow up to Bitches Brew, in the same vain too.



        MX-80 Sounds Hard Attack ... Avantgarde pop



        Norman Harris The Harris Thing ... Philly thing



        Lovely Belly Dance thing

        Lizzy Mercier Descloux Mambo Nassau ... No Wave - Funk



        Ashra Black Out ...



        Tangerine Dream Alpha Centauri ... Original press on Ohr - Kraut

        Great world music ...



        1997 bootleg of a great funky soundtrack ... Taking of Pelham 1 2 3



        Another great soundtrack that never saw an original release until the 90s ... Get Carter



        George Gruntz Noon in Tunisia ... Ethnic Jazz with traditional instruments, from MPS world series



        Vanishing Point ... Great soundtrack, still have to watch the movie



        Lalo Schrifin Medical Center ... Comp of great individual OSTs



        Clifford Thornton Quartet Panther and the Lash ... Free Jazz, been after this for a while



        Spiritual jazz from the late Horace Silver That Healin' Feeling



        You Electric Day ... Electronic, Kraut 80s

          My spidey sense tells me that Mambo Nassau LP has got to be good... surely..?

          I'd not pass on that. Looks the business...
          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.

              Sie, that album would certainly get the spidey senses tingling, then you notice a Kool and the Gang cover (Funky Stuff). Great record...

              Get Carter DID come out, but only in Japan. Quite pricey, or it used to be.

                True ment a Euro/USA release, Japanese is $500-1000 I believe.

                        More the other way, I see records everywhere I go. Looks like all the collectors are now living in other parts of the world.

                        Today I found some good records again. Weekdays are the best for digging.

                              Two 50p finds today (well - one 50p and one a whole POUND).

                              Johnny Scott Octet "Wildcat Bossa Nova" - got hipped to this by a fellow record nut and been on the lookout for a copy for a while. Great and frantic track.
                              Frank Weir & The Weirwolves "Manhunt" - another frantic instro. Would have been perfect as the theme music for a show on one of the pirate stations...
                              Drastically reduced to 72p
