      Snarfed.



      Good God - S/T. Rather good instrumental prog from early Seventies Philadelphia band. This is their only album. Two things majorly appealed to me: a) the guitarist is called 'Zeno Sparkles' and b) it includes versions of Zappa's 'King Kong' and John McLaughlin's 'Dragon Song'. Great to have a version of KK without any Zappaish looning on it - better than the Ponty one - and some neat originals too.
      Mazlyn Jones - Breaking Cover. On an initial listen, one of my favourite finds so far this year. Folkish guitar with spacey synths, ebow and other electric guitar prankery, and miscellaneous addenda (santours, spoons, a Bodmin Youth Opportunity Scheme chorus...). All somehow tumble together into something deeply moving and folktronicish.
      Gustav Holst - The Hymn Of Jesus. Been on the lookout for pieces other than 'The Planets' and this is really, ahem, stellar. Gorgeous choral piece, powerful ballet piece, and a sparse / brooding / mysterious 'Egdon Heath' - Holst's favourite among his own compositions.
      The Teddy Charles Tentet - S/T. Early exploration of 'modern' in jazz - you've got pieces and arrangements by Mal Waldron, Gil Evans, Jimmy Giuffre, George Russell, all sounding fresh as a daisy and brilliant throughout.



      Spiteri - S/T. Well known Venezuelan rocker.
      Intergalactic Touring Band - S/T. A cast of thousands contributing to this conceptual space oddity - cheesy rocking sci-fi 70s fun. Which is a bit rubbish.
      Charlie Mariano & Jerry Dodgain - Beauties Of 1918. The hit songs of 1918 done a la bop - pretty cool!
      Thelonious Monk - Big Band and Quartet. Never really get excited about Monk, but worth another shot.



      Charles Mingus - The Clown. I think this is even scarier than the original album cover, Charles is disappearing out of frame as he is pursued by a giant monochrome clown. I will be having nightmares.
      Richard Strauss - An Alpine Symphony. I used to love a bit of Strauss, but not listened to any for a long time. His time has come back round, I reckon, because this is great and ludicrously epic - the size of the orchestral forces is trumpted (sorry) on the back - Organ! Wind Machine! Thunder Machine! Heckelphone! 130 Players! Damn good.
      Duke Ellington - The Symphonic Ellington seemed like it would be interesting but recording quality leaves something to be desired, and The New Orleans Suite I am yet to crack into.



      Quincy Jones - Mackenna's Gold. QJ is such a great soundtrack composer... some very nice moments on here, check out the wonderful twisty-turniness of the 'Main Title':



      Elmer Bernstein - Gold. Another solid soundtrack, been waiting for this to turn up...
      Headstone - S/T. Looked like an interesting rock band + violin thing, but it's not really hooking me.
      George Russell - Othello Ballet Suite. Yet to crack this, it starts off with too much 'wha happen'...

        Love that Nigel Mazlyn Jones album, Sonovox. His others are well worth picking up too.

          Couple of reissues which were cheap. The blue phantom I'm sure is well known and been meaning to pick up a copy for a while, library meets prog. The Corporation promises much more than it delivers but has its charms.





          Couple of charity shop purchases. A pretty middling Martin Denny album from 1966 which opens great with 'Temptation' (which must have been sampled by someone) and then goes downhill + a minty copy of 'Bo Hansson - Music Inspired by Lord of the Rings' which I'm sure everyone knows. Did find a cd of Zakir Hussain alongside a santoor player and an ECM disc from 09 http://www.discogs.com/Ambrose-Field...elease/2065228 which looks kind of interesting.

            Hey old pals. I haven't been on here since last Winter so I wanted to say hi (and I didn't know where else to do it without making a new thread!). Hope everyone has been well. Some nice finds in here.
            See, you don't get those haircuts on your mp3s.

              New through the door

              [IMG][/IMG]

              Checkerlads - Shake yourself down / Baby send for me. '66 RCA promo. Don't think I've ever seen a stock copy of this top drawer 45. Promo only? Dancefloor gold on the top side, early Pretty Things style r&b on the flip.


              Ruperts People - Reflections...../ Hold on. US stock copy. Bought the promo before but it has Reflections.. on both sides. Hold on is (predictably) the one for me. Came cheap with the above as a postage sweetener.
              Kind & Kinky Zoo - Party chez le marquis / kinky regards.
              Kind & Kinky Zoo - La jupe volante / Bestial zoo. Never heard of this lot until I chanced upon them online. Both 45s easy to pick up cheap. La Jupe volante is the earlier of the two. Looping basslines, Fuzzy organ, busy drums, floaty flutes....

              Party chez le marquis, is a frantic organ, flute, bass, drum stuttery kind of tune, also very good.


              Jonna Gault & her symphonopop scene - What if they gave a war and no one came / Wonder why I guess. Not the similarly titled WCPAEB tune on the a side. All about the flip. Creepy, sparse arrangement, ......"shutting the door, losing the key, that's the only way I can really be me"..........this is some weird shit, dressed up in candy coloured disguise. Anyone heard the lp?

              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

                Been a while since I posted a find. I was happy to dig this earlier in the week (Warms up at 27 sec mark)

                          You can't beat an uncredited acetate, can you? The chances of a duffer are about 97%, the anticipation mounts before you put the needle on it and... wow, that really is a great one. Sonic archaeology in action!

                            That acetate is amazing!

                            I have the Jonna Gault LP Paul - it's ok. Weird twisted pop and a few covers but the tune on the 45 is the 'one' imho.
                            "..hole...road...middle thereof"

                              Another improbably pleasant winter’s day in Perth. Ho Hum. Not really the kind of weather for the musical astringency I usually inflict upon myself.

                              Just as well I popped into some charity shops yesterday. Otherwise I wouldn’t have picked up “From All Sides” by Vince Guaraldi and Bola Sete (NM/NM). Ralph Gleason’s liner notes talk about Brazilian “saudade”, and contrast it with North American “spice and brashness and sentimentality”. He’s close, but I don’t think he quite nails it. It is certainly pretty and lyrical (to be fair, Ralph also said “lyrical”). And I’m not sure that it is any more than that.

                              Not that it needs to be. A patch of sunlight indoors earlier was just the spot for basking in this early 60’s jazz/Braziliana.

                              Mostly originals, and hence unfamiliar to me. “Chorro” I have heard before, but I wouldn’t have known that Guaraldi wrote it.

                              Due for a reissue any day now, I see.

                              On Fantasy records, but issued in Oz on Vocalion. Not seen that before.

                              I hope to come back with comments on other chazza pick-ups as the day progresses.
