  • December 2015 finds

    I'm sure I've missed posting about quite a few November finds. I went to a mini record-fair in another town last week and dove into some cheap 45 boxes, and came home with a good pile.
    These are more recent though.
    In the mail yesterday:


    Maybe this is too obvious stuff, but when I by chance came on Tradera (Swedish eBay) to see that there was only a starting bid on this with minutes to go, I threw in a low bid which to my surprise was not overbid in the last seconds. Really happy for this and in EX condition, I really love Troggs 45s.

    From the charity shop yesterday.
    Christallen is Xian slightly funky horn rock from 1968 or 1969. I had heard a track by them that was promising, but turns out it was from the follow up, this one is pretty pedestrian.
    This is maybe the best track, an instro...


    Eileen is new to me, maybe a known Euro 45 here on VG+? Apparently she was American and moved to France, recording French, German and Italian versions of Boots. Being the daughter of Lee Hazelwood's publisher must have helped in securing the deal. I actually like this version, a bit rougher sound than the Nancy version.


    And this is the best label sleeve I've found for a while. No record to go with it, and judging by the label output there's not a lot I want.
    A POP on PEP is TOP, whatever that means?

    That's a great Troggs 45 CD. Very similar to the b side of Wild Thing too. Cool Scandinavian sleeve too.

    You've just got to be close to it all

      Consuming a can of Pepsi is an excellent notion?

        Having consumed your Pepsi, the resulting flatulence is something to be applauded?

          I'm not even sure that you could get a Pepsi here at that time.
          Their marketing department must have been on something at the time, judging by the slogans.

          "bolaget med de S-märkta skivorna"
          The label with the S-marked records. The S-mark would refer to the Safety stamp applied to tested electrical appliances, or the national sticker on Swedish cars? Or perhaps to the ruling party at the time, the Social democrats?

          "Schlager som slår!"
          Schlager that hits! Tautology warning...

            vinyl odds and ends I've picked up in the past few days



            I was most pleased with this curious Saydisc LP which according to the label is a 'Limited Edition',
            though it's hard to imagine it ever sold many copies. It was also released on CD a few years ago.







            The sleeve for this LP may have been inspiration for this Pink Floyd compilation as it also came out in 1971.





            Lovely tunes from Victorian Barrel Organs to musical boxes also released in 1971.




            I have bell-ringing albums but this is the first one I've found with them accompanied by a guitar.




            This was only 49p so I couldn't resist hearing these oldies slaying the oldies.







            A nice pair of JM comps.









            A BBC 12" single of narration for you to read / listen along to the Gremlins movie.

                    Wow great haul Reza, I wouldn't have a clue where to start either but it looks magical. I think I used some of that 'mechanical music' on my XMAS swap cd last year HG.

                    Anyway what with my wife's health and finishing off the XMAS Swap mix and masses of other meaningless shit like Plumbing problems yesterday it might surprise some that I haven't listened to any of the black stuff for a few weeks now (most of my music has been listened to via PC or mainly in the car!) but have picked up a few odds and ends alongside other stuff I've already posted that I still haven't got around to listening too:

                    I usually avoid 'Swingle' albums but have noticed it gets a bit of love here so nice copy I'll give it a go same goes for Louis Armstrong but its all gospel songs so I thought it might be worth an ear. The Scott Walker although a best of is in stunning condition so couldn't leave that and a bit of guilty pleasure in Bobby Darin.

                    The relate shop finally moved some of their 'Vintage Books' to the 20p section so picked up some paranormal gubbins and lots of sci-fi and general pulp fiction and a stray Carlos Castaneda which I already have a reprint of:

                          It does have a picture with a filter on the back. It just doesnt do it for me, so it's in the out pile.

                          DANSA MED TV, from reza's post, that's Jan Johansson, right?
