    Ha - hadn't even noticed that. Picked it up (and raced out after paying!) on the recommendation of a couple of mates - nice samba/jazz/lounge feel to a lot of the tracks, couple of Jobim tracks. Nice easy listen of an afternoon, definitely recommended.

        Among a haul from Groove Attack, an institution amongst record stores within Deutschland and mainly focused on news. But also a great selection of reissues, so I couldnt pass up on some of these classics for the collection. Why isnt there more Bongo Rock played on the dancefloors, goddammit?

          Went to New York for a couple of days. Bought records but it wasn't the main focus.



          Went a bit nuts on the Gary McFarland front. I love his first album and 'The In Sound', so it was time to beef things up a bit.



          20th century composers. I found a classical music focussed shop with a couple of shelves of avant garde. Faced with a ton of CRI and Louisville titles, I picked out these for reasons.

          John Antill - Corroboree is a 1949 ballet based on Australian Aborigine ritual music. Some wild bits, and some nice exotica-ish vibes on the way. Legendary recording... and some Ginastera on the flip.
          The CRI titles include two with electronic music from Mario Davidovsky and Otto Luening - ace as I knew they'd be - the Wallingford Riegger piece was also unexpectedly good. I punted on the CRI one with 'Teen Scenes For String Orchestra' along with Louisville discs that offered 'Musique A Go-Go' and 'Abyses, Bridges, Chasms for Ten Rock-Jazz Soloists and Orchestra' but sadly none of them live up to potential of the titles.



          In a somewhat slightly strange experience, I also found some avant composer stuff in a pile of records and books being sold on the side of the road by a guy who looked like George Burns in a muu-muu - huge stogie on the go. The Alan Hovhaness one is particularly interesting, as Lousadzak is the first composition where he uses his 'spirit murmur' technique, maybe the first time indeterminacy is used as a structuring principle in 20th century music. (Fascinating, isn't it?)



          Cal Tjader - Warm Wave is super mellow and lovely.
          Roger Kellaway Cello Quartet is a bit too easy, though, snoozy.
          Curtis Amy - Tippin' On Through has good moments, but I was hoping for some more piledriving type stuff (I love 'Mustang')
          Yusef Lateef - The Blue Yusef Lateef. Great album! Have found him a bit hit and miss, but this is gorgeous, really atmospheric blues based workouts.



          Shawn Phillips - Contribution. Lovely SSW stuff with excellent use of the fringy shirt on the cover.
          White Witch - Spiritual Greeting. Was quite excited to find this, I was expecting sheer madness, but it was a bit boring after one side and I took it off. Will have to return to it another time.
          Ray Barretto - Acid. This looks like Torvill and Dean have been at work on the disc, but it plays fine.
          If - S/T. I don't know how I've managed to steer clear of If all this time, but sounds like jazz-rock-rock-jazz classiness.



          Wendy Carlos - Beauty In The Beast. May be Carlos' best, this is all about exploring non-standard tunings, there's layers of unusual slightly dissonant noises that all hang together beautifully.
          Don Ellis - Autumn. Typically madcap odd big band stuff - love the version of 'Indian Lady' on this, which is off the rails in a good way.
          KPM - Soul Organ Showcase. This was possibly the best find, Alan Hawkshaw giving it some.
          And a Chappell disc, with a couple of nice tracks including some light harpsichord jazz from ROn Grainer.



          Steve Kuhn - Non-Fiction. ECM disc... I may grow to like this but it has that late 70s soprano saxophone + fretless bass sound from hell off the bat.
          Richard Torrance and Eureka - Belle Of The Ball. I love the first Eureka album so was pleased to grab a copy of this - unfortunately it has a skip at the start of side 1, so upgrades are in order.
          David Amram - Triple Concerto. There may be hope for this symphony + jazz offering, sounds Gershwiny with a bit more rough stuff thrown in at first listen.
          Sigmund Snopek III - Roy Rogers Meets Albert Einstein. This looked magnificently unhinged, but it isn't really delivering, kind of like meandering Zappa-lite.

            I follow your finds with great interest. Have you estimated when you are going to run out of room? I've done a bit of maths and, assuming average room sizes, my estimate is next Wednesday.

                various bits/bobs from charity/tip-shops


                A great 78 on Homochord



                The Tangerine Dreamy sleeve caught my eye but it turns out to be soft Icelandic Folk



                East London folkies sole album released in 1967




                Cheesey-Electro Bond themes overload






                The sleeve was a bit tatty but the vinyl is sweet




                In with a large collection of Irish Folk LP's were a few religious oddities,
                it's not everyday I come across albums with sick & dying lying on the cover







                The previous owner must have made a few pilgrimages to Lourdes as there were tickets inside the sleeves






                Not sure if I will ever get round to listening to it but it was in the box along with...

                  Winter in America is one of my all time favourite records, great buy!

                  My wife despises it for some reason, I think its a hauntingly beautiful album.

                    I agree, great record, however no offence but never really understand why buy a reissue of it when you can buy an original for about the same price ?

                      Point taken, no doubt I couldve found a fine copy of the original, but my lazy ass wasnt wanting to wait til I find it in the open wild and a purchase on Discogs wasnt planned right now. Kind of a spur of the moment purchase, but admittedly with these three the sound quality difference is not that great I would assume compared to some stuff not pressed in that quantity or already recorded not so great in the original..

                          I blame you for Bossy Boss Phil, and many thanks for that. Came up trumps on that, sold as VG therefore cheap, clean as a whistle when it landed. One of the lucky buys I guess.
                          I've kind of got a handle on what you like now Phil, and I knew you'd like Baby boy. Apparently it got loads of radio play at the time, don't know if that translated into loads of sales as it isn't the easiest 45 to turn up a decent copy of. Two top tunes.

                            I think we've all got a handle on what Phil likes now. It needs to be a two word title both words beginning with B.
