    And neither will I know how a Liverpool band acetate ends up in a Swedish car boot sale. I was just leaving empty-handed, cursing the new 1£ visitor parking fee, when I saw a small pile of LPs. Inbetween them I found this:

    After some googling I found there was actually a Liverpool band called Roadrunners, active from 1962-66. They have a website which seems to be pieced together, and it says "t the time Mike Hart left the band in 1965, we were under contract to Philips/Fontana in London, where A&R man Jack Bauerstock had produced quite a few tracks, including at least one with Jimmy Page on lead guitar. None were released." So it works out that it is this band, and that they don't seem to have that much memory of these recordings.

    The bad news: there is a small warp that causes the needle to skip for most of the record. Annoyingly enough, the parts I could play sound really good, espec. Mr Pitiful.

    This is the first acetate I've found, so advice is welcome. I've now understood it's delicate and that I should avoid playing it. I guess the nature of the acetate makes it hard to salvage it, so is this a framing prospect?

      Wow, Cratedigger - that's a big 'OOOOOFFFTTTT!' I reckon, since neither track appears in their discography - and the Roadrunners were a key band in the Merseybeat scene. Never mind framing it - you should contact their website and tell them about it - it's a fantastic story!...you might find yourself famous on Merseyside - congratulations!

        @Tom B. That Roscoe Thomas is a nice find. Nice price? I picked up a copy of Calvin Stewart for two quid but it has a label tear, yours looks minty! Great track.

            Tom Rapp's previous band was Pearls Before Swine, they're Folk with some Psych. You might check them out if you like the solo.
            See, you don't get those haircuts on your mp3s.

                It was a job lot so all the soul 45s here were about £2 each, plus a lot more I didn't bother to list. Yes, minty condition.

                Picked up this r&b monster this morning. One side has a film of plastic which looks like a glue job gone horribly wrong, but the business side plays fine

                  I saw a record box of albums at the car boot this morning and asked to have a look, "they are all Irish" she said,
                  "that's OK, I like a bit of Irish" I replied and this is what was in the box all for 50p a pop and in near mint condition too.
                  I was especially pleased to find the first one for it's beautiful sleeve alone, I do have to get up at 6am to find these things y'know!

                    I have contacted the band, but I'm not holding my breath. The website was created in 2000 and I can't see that it have been updated the last years.

                      If they can salvage something from it and even if you don't make any money from it gotta be worth a 1000 karma points!

                          So these are the phase 4 lp's I mentioned stumbling on in the Gratis thread. There were lots more, some I had others that were comps and some of less interest such as accordion based stuff probably pop back when they reduce them. Someone spent a lot of money collecting these and looked after them too:

                          [IMG][/IMG]

                          [IMG][/IMG]

                          The percussion ones in the second pic were minted up, infact I have a spare (non gatefold) of 'percussion in the sky' if anyone wants it, thinking about it Werner's 'on the move' is maybe a spare too, not sure. The Alan Tew features 'John Paul Jones' on bass duties. Edit: Listening to the 'Twelve Star Percussion' album this Sunday afternoon and its brill!

                          Next lot were picked up from the shop next door apart from the private press and the moon one which was from Preston last week.

                          [IMG][/IMG]

                          Tom Rapp - Stardancer Loving this psych/country effort as said earlier.

                          JSD Band - Travelling Days Bit too Irish for me. (sorry HG)

                          Gerry Rafferty - Same Comp of early stuff on Transatlantic.

                          Journey to the Moon Voice recordings to NASA and back of the 69 moon landings.

                          The Saltney Ferry CP School - 'Young Ones Make Music' Private mono press, mixture of hymns and trad songs with a 'Young Ones' cover I think. Not listened yet,it could be gold although I suspect it sounds not unlike one of my hymn practice mornings circa 1984. Man I hated hymn practice with a the passion of Christ. EDIT: So anyway finally got around to listening to this whilst ripping records and the 'young ones' cover is instrumental and quite quaint so its given me an idea for the swap mix and a theme of sorts.

                          Various Artists - The Golden Hits of Soul Allegro Cash in of soul covers, could be good but sure I would have heard about it if it was.

                          Didn't have the heart to move 'Thomas' he'd probably piss somewhere to spite me if I did, twisted bugger that he is.

                          Ooops almost forgot this piece of barmy exotica from my main man Stanley too: http://www.discogs.com/Stanley-Black...elease/2116339

                          Must add after listening to this its his best work I've heard so far (and I've heard a few putting it mildly). I'm really pleased to find such an excellent copy. Essential Exotica if like me you're digging that kind of thing at the moment and British too!

                              Next door neighbour is housesitting at his Dad's place and he's usually around there of an evening tarting himself about. Its messed up his routine and he's not happy and when he's not happy he sprays. An only child, rescue Burmese, never again! When he's in a good mood he's the best cat ever but when he's got one on him which is often he's a nightmare.

                              We never named him 'Thomas' too obvious but no point changing it, his pedigree name is 'Jeffrey' ffs. Haha

                              Our other two cats are named 'Marvin' after 'Marvin Gaye' and 'Cecil' after Jazz Pianist 'Cecil Taylor' (I have to sneak these suggestions past the kids so they think they are actually choosing the name but really its my evil plan to name all our pets after jazz/soul legends. I couldn't get away with Dollar Brand or Sun Ra). Probably worth a thread 'pets named after musicians/bands'

                                if you have L1019 (like in the YouTube clip) it's the national issue. if you have L119 it's the first press local issue.
