    Nice finds there Ben mate, I love that Forum Quorum I'm surprised the version of 'I wanna testify' didn't do it for you.

    Result on the 'Spindrift', i've yet to find one in the wilds, it's proving to be a bit of a bugger!

There's even entertainment as you shop, provided by an old man playing easy listening and gospell on Hammond organ.
      Nice batch o' records.... But this charity shop sounds amazing... Any chance of some pictures the next time you go?

        When I got home from the Lakes, I didn't quite know what to do with myself without any hills to stomp up and I'd had a week away from vinyl, so I took myself off in to Nottingham and mooched round West Bridgford's charity shops, nipped in to see Rob and also had a look in Music Inn (the jazz shop in West End Arcade). The above quartet all came from Music Inn. If you were only ever to buy one Stan Kenton album (and I'm not saying that you should), this should be the one. Firing big band grooves and one you should be able to find for pennies really. Was sure I'd had this Harry Roche before and let it go but, on hearing 'Warm Punch', I reasoned that I wouldn't have been so daft as to let that tune go (Methinks I just didn't listen to it properly before!). One tracker though eh? Stuart Atkins is one for our Northern correspondents I reckon and I would imagine that many of them have already got this. A cross between big band funk and Working Man's Soul, with one of the best versions of 'Jesus Christ Superstar' you'll ever hear and you would not believe what they've done with 'Ol' Man River' - amazing. Seriously, this was my pleasant surprise find of the month. If you can find a cheap copy, have no hesitation in picking it up. And you'll get bonus points if your copy isn't signed!! I keep picking up copies of this Sandy Brown version of 'Hair' and passing them on for being a bit pedestrian, but I'm mellowing with age and might well come to appreciate it. Will give it another go, but my hopes aren't high.

        Nicely done Ben - love that Stuart Atkins LP... Especially the version of Mony Mony.

          I guess at some point or other most of us have been considered a residential gripper.
          I noticed the price tags had last week's number on them so quite possibly they are the dregs.

            Yep, hate to think what the competition call me but so it goes.

            The latest one who I've encountered a couple of times now is the fastest browser of vinyl in the west, he whips through a pile at such a speed he cant possibly know what he's browsing, must be looking for something specific, swirls or some such no doubt. Anyway he's given me 'the stare' on each occasion our paths have crossed and always seems to be one step ahead of me on my local vinyl traverse. Now known only in my head as 'The Stinky Cowboy'.

              Oh, I've seen a couple of those. Usually they are also grab-alls, building up a large pile of everything remotely interesting and then retiring to a sofa set to consult discogs.

                      Nothing much on the vinyl front apart from this:



                      Angelo Badalamenti ‎– Music From Twin Peaks Incoming reissue on Death Waltz I think, probably waiting for the remake to come out.



                      Ron Grainer -Themes Like This Mostly Incidental music from Maigret some interesting tracks.



                      'Company - A Musical Comedy OST' Awful Musical, might be a couple of microsamples here and there but all in all terrible. I could not think of anything worse than having to watch this on the stage when it came out in 1969.





                      Sqaurepusher - Music is Rotted one Note I tend to own a lot of electronica on CD infact I have most of the Squarepusher discography on the silver disc but if you were to own one Squarepusher album on vinyl this is probably it although I'd like a copy of 'Hello Everything' on record. I almost bought his latest on vinyl the other day from HMV but not been enamoured with it and a day later I managed to snag it on CD for a few quid from ebay.

                      Talking of the evil silver disk went into one of my local charities and someone had brought a bag of them in. The staff were over them like vultures and took a load out back to 'check on ebay' and probably filter out the back door for themselves. They put out the rest on the shelves 3 for a quid, snagged some Miles Davis, Soft Machine and this lovely 3 cd comp of Decca stuff:

                        The Decca comp is pretty good. I could think of better East Of Eden tracks than Jig a bleeding Jig for an "underground" comp though! Starting with the b side of that 45
                        Everyone tear down your own little wall
                        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

                            After 'Sunday In The Park With George' it's probably my favourite Sondheim musical! One of the first things I said to Mrs Khan when I met her about 20 years ago was "I think you should know I'm a huge fan of Stephen Sondheim. Luckily she knew nothing about him so I got away with it.

                              My heart goes out to her. When all the 'Bobby, Bobby, Robbie, Robert' stuff kicked in at the start it made me want to run out into the streets and scream 'Broadway!' at passers by in a New York accent.

                                Yeah seems a mixture of some obvious choices and some less so. It was in amongst some mostly orchestral cd's they handed me. Shop assistant must have seen the decca logo and dismissed it as classical.
