  • December Finds 2014

    Kicking off the new month with a curious find at the charity shop. There was a new batch of records with a twist. The previous owner had scribbled one word reviews on the cover of each record with a marker pen, such as CLASSICAL or BORING. Luckily for me, my pick had the shrink left :-)



    Los Temerarios is late sixties Mexican beat, and I would be surprised if it wasnt already featured on VG+
    The verdict scribbled on this was UNINTERESTING. I kinda agree, mostly it's tepid covers, but there's one track of interest, Temerarios Theme.

    Well, Cratedigger, that'll teach you for thinking that you knew better than the previous owner...if only more charity shop donors were as considerate.....

    Don't worry, I'm only miffed because I stayed up late last night posting my November finds....and now no-one will read about them!!!!
    you can hear colours when they rhyme...

      On a similar theme I happened upon a new selection of records in a charity warehouse most seemed to have been owned by someone called 'Thompson' as he had scrawled on most of them along with notes such as 'background music' in pencil on the rear of some sleeves. He seemed a well travelled chap with some of them being US releases and even Afghanistan in one instance. I imagine him sleeping his way around the world in a haze of easy listening.

      I cant resist phase 4 or studio 2 stereo albums just a pity the cover of the s2s is the most impressive thing about it. The Ted Heath is rather laidback and swinging though with some great stereo effects as you would expect and am yet to sample the country music from afghanistan.





      Some more easy listening and Kugat from the same lot and a live album from 77 from Yugoslavian hard rock band 'Bijelo Dugme' which hasn't done anything for me as the sound quality seems a bit mushy and its a bit straight ahead rock for my tastes although their earlier studio albums might be interesting on this evidence.

        It's Indian.

        It's jazz.

        And it's fabulous.





        I'm also delighted to report that this record appears to have been graded by a classical dealer, whose G/VG- is my VG+/EX-.

        Don't ever buy records from me, mind

          I've been researching these for a while, and suspect this will be one of the mystery gaps.

            It's 'A Woman In Love' by Steve Gray and his Orchestra - don't have the catalogue number to hand, but it's been discussed on here before. Nice version of 'Wives and Lovers' on it.

                    Yep, What Lord Thames said, not a bad record to be fair some interesting cover versions. Label states Fontana and two cat numbers on the back 'LPS 16269' and below that '886 619 TY'. Apols on crap photo it was late I really shouldn't have posted it, I'll get a better shot later and edit the post.

                        a box came into the tip shop last week all in brown card sleeves and was just dumped on top of
                        a pile of crap LP's and I went through and pulled 52 out - a whole run of Kinks including 'You Still Want Me'
                        which I swear I knew nothing about. Along with Stones, Screaming Lord Sutch, The Undertakers and I offered
                        him a fiver for the lot and he said yes as he knows fuckall about records - there were original Stones & Kinks & Searchers
                        albums too but they were 50p each - it restores my faith that stuff is still out there if you dig*

                        *or just happen to be bloody lucky!
