    I found Mambo For Cats at the Rastro a few years ago, so it's obviously a prime source of Jim Flora covers.

    I've also had a terrible offer of credit at Metralleta. All his latin and salsa lps are knackered, too. I usually spend my time in the €1 room next door. Still, I made a good profit moving on his Jayme Marques lps to UK jazz buyers in the 90s, so I can´t complain too much.

        I tried to do some detective work but I am not sure either. That sleeve got the date 27/2/61 but not the country, other records or sleeves have the following countries and dates: San Jose de Costa Rica 26/4/61, Quito 30/3/61, Lima 7/3/61 and Maracaibo 3/7/61... so, where was this woman (Eugenia Lefme P.) the month before she went to Perú? She seems to come from the south towards the north (Perú, Ecuador, Costa Rica, Venezuela) and I doubt the record is either Brazilian or Argentinian because it says 45 EP and I think in those countries the singles were played at 33. That leaves us with Uruguay, Paraguay, Bolivia and Chile.

        I can spot in the sleeve also a hat with an arrow piercing it, nuts and bolts, dices, false teeth, a flying shoe and maybe a horseshoe. I love the cover also, reminds me of the bonkerness of Jim Flora but with a totally different style.

        I would love to find Mambo Para Gatos too, it will go straight into a frame.

          I've no idea why they didn´t call the Spanish issue Mambo Para Gatos. I suppose it´s for the same reason Peret objected to the word - cats chase mice, mice eat cheese, cheese comes from milk, milk comes from cows, cows have horns and horns mean someone´s shagging your wife.

            That could be because one of several reasons:
            a) Cats in America are richer and could afford records while in Spain life was hard in the 60s. Remember, people had to buy bottles of cognac to get records.
            b) Spanish people spend less money buying records for their pets than in America.
            c) Spanish cats don't like mambo.

                  I picked up a small collection of 78's from the estate of a late old Northamptonian jazzer yesterday.
                  He used to be in a band called The Ambassadors, there were a few of his acetate discs in with the lot
                  along with some Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald etc. These 12" acetates are metal plates with shellac coating,
                  a few are in a sorry old shape but they still play!
















                  This one from 1952 is in much better condition than the 2 metal plate discs, it sounds really upbeat
                  and is more like dramatic movie soundtrack music








                  2 x 10" discs by Northampton jazz band The Ambassadors - circa 1952








                  A Sinatra disc from 1943 and I couldn't let the Wembley Stadium 78 go, it dates from 1955 the year Newcastle last won the FA Cup

                    Last Sundays Quarterly Fare Dig,mainly Jazz..



                    Gabor Szabo - Macho. Szabo on Guitar, Bob James on keys, Idris Muhammed on drums. 'Nuff said.

                    Herbie Mann - Brazli Otra Ves. Worth it for the cover alone, always loving the Pele chant in the beginning.

                    Curtis Mayfield - Never Say You Can't Survive. Starting to pick up everything from Curtis' Curtom label I can find, most of its great.

                    Quincy Jones - Sounds. Not his best, not his worst..

                    Oscar Peterson and The Singers Unlimited - In Tune. From back when German Chemistry Companies also made records, good combination.

                    Weather Report - Mysterious Traveller. Just the right balance between Fusion and Funkiness in my eyes, although Sweetnighter still beats it.

                    Bill Evans - The Interplay Sessions. An Evans joint I hadnt heard of yet, straight forward contemp jazz.

                    Sergios Mendes & Brasil '66 - Crystal Illusions. Shame on me, the first Mendes record I own..

                    The rest of the lot.



                    Westland Steel Band - Sound of the Sun. Trinidad steel drum madness, looked promising but ended up being of shitty sound quality and tracks being repetitive.

                    Joe Tex - He Who Is Without Funk Cast The First Stone. Past his prime, albeit still worth spinning to get people moving.

                    Herbie Mann - Vol. 5. A mix of Herbie flute action on Monkey Records, not bad, nothing that sticks out though.

                    Chick Corea - Sun Dance. Looked like free jazz with support from Hubert Laws and John DeJohnette among others, very Avant-Garde in the wake of Bitches Brew.

                    Azymuth - Crazy Rhythm. One of the moments I ignored my "Dont buy 80ies records"-rule, unfortunately not doing it for me compared to earlier Az stuff.

                    Lastly satisfiying my completist need with the Italian Jazz Comp " Giganti Del Jazz", the Corea cuts being by chance from the Sundance LP. Lots of good stuff and a cross section and time-series along the Jazz evolution, always a treat.

                        Ha, yes,I do ignore this rather bold rule more often than I'd admit, but thats why I'm here to get some 80ies enlightenment from you folks! ;-)

                          Not been able to get out much what with car stresses and what not but a few bits and bobs from various charity shops when I've had the chance:

                          [IMG][/IMG]

                          Alphonse Mouzon - Dream Bug Not a comp of various drum led tracks by the Weather Report drummer but rather a sly re-packaging of an album by tenor saxophonist Robin Kenyatta. One track stands out but the rest is pretty lame. Here is the actual album: http://www.discogs.com/Robin-Kenyatt...elease/1654634.

                          Charlie Byrd Trio - Travellin' Man Bossa Grooves

                          Oscar Peterson - My Favourite Instrument

                          Caterina Valente - This is Me Some good orchestration on this late 70's effort.

                          Paul Nero Sounds - Non Stop Hits Thought this might provide at least one good track but its a pretty stale affair in the dreaded medley format.

                          Various Artists - The Best of British Folk A few good tracks on this cheapo double comp.

                          [IMG][/IMG]

                          Maurice Jarre - Enemy Mine OST I vaguely remember this film of Dennis Quaid arguing with an alien. I thought it might be orchestral but there are bits of 80's synth scattered throughout and its quite dark and atmospheric so well worth the quid I shed for it.

                          Lemon - Lemon Top disco session guys strut their stuff.

                          VA - Bezerkely Chartbusters Rockabilly Pop stuff which is not my cup of chai at all.

                          Wild Thyme - Hunters Moon - Folk private press from 87, dissapointing.

                          The Music Machine OST Britains answer to Saturday Night Fever which I'd never heard of but the YouTube clips had me in hysterics. The music aint half bad though.

                          Pan Am Jet North Stars Steel Band Great cover just a pity the music sounds like its been recorded on wax cylinder.

                          [IMG][/IMG]

                          Bert and Ernie Sing-along Couldn't leave this.

                          Various Artists - Televisions Greatest Hits Double LP of American TV themes some of which sound like they've been recorded off the telly with a portable cassette recorder. Gets interesting near the end but not by much.

                          The Tricycle ‎– Tricycle Sleeveless copy

                          Leslie First Combo - Sexy Hammond Volume 2 Not Sexy in the slightest.

                          Sesame Street Monsters As with Bert and Ernie.

                          Southern Symphony Steel Orch - I love Steel Band More steel band tourist fare which production wise sounds even worse than the previous one.

                            Not 100%, but I think you have artist & title transposed on the Wild Thyme LP.

                              Your'e right, fixed it, to be honest I thought as much when I was writing it, checking the actual record confirms.

                                In Newcastle last weekend. Met up with a couple of shifty geezers in RPM, and had a quick glance through some of THAT collection...crikey! I didn't make it as far as the 45s, despite Mr Sayers best attempts to deplete my Utrecht wedge! Still got a bit left.
                                Picked up 3 excellent lps from there, great condition too. No big hitters for me (there are plenty there believe me) just great music.

                                [IMG][/IMG]

                                Beacon Street Union - Eyes of the beacon street union. Well known classic Boston lp.

                                Crome Syrcus - Love Cycle. 1968 Seattle band. SF, Barry Melton style guitar in places. Bit of a side long epic, which is suitably over the top for the times.

                                Kensington Market - Aardvark. This was on my list of potential buys at Utrecht. Terrific Toronto band. Absolutely solid lp, I'm completely hooked on it now. Similar vibe to the 1st Beast lp, which was the best lp I picked up last year. This is my favourite so far this year. 1969 release, interesting in that it's one of the early "rock" lps with a synthesizer on it, and to their credit, they don't go for they kids in a sweetshop approach and smother everything in wibbly wobbliness. It's actually used very tastefully. Great vocal harmonies, good songs, tight playing, this lp is a gem. Still cheap to pick up original copies, I'd recommend it. Love the cover too!
                                There's a whiff of Whistler, Chaucer Detroit & Greenhill about this track, and the synth lifts the otherwise acoustic track to another level.




                                Sabicas with Joe Beck - Rock encounter. Following on from the Nature Boy Joe Beck lp I picked up a couple of weeks back, I got this one where Joe joins flamenco guitarist Sabicas. The combination works well, another lp available cheaply and worth picking up. The drama of the flamenco sound is maintained, and when the two forms kick in together it's quite something, this is a good illustration. Two and a half minutes in and things get cooking nicely

                                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
