    That 'Beaver and Krause' LP sounds completely mad Shere, loving that 'Lennie Tristano' track too, twelve quid well spent says me.

      If that Black Spirit is on Brutkasten, it's quite a find.

        (great condition, this was a 1978 German pressing)
        Sounds like somebody's in luck.

          Superb musicianship on that 'Isotope' LP and their other one but your'e right its just noodling and barely any hooks in sight. Always been a disappointing band for me for the talent on display especially being British too would love it to live up to its many descriptions as a band they are as good as any american jazz in that same style but they are no 'Nucleus' unfortunately. They always seem to get filed under Canterbury which is a bit misleading in my book. Well worth a quid though!

            And an update on the Vertigo clock - it is, sadly, just a Gene Pitney compilation with a Vertigo sticker on one side.

            Doesn't look half bad though. It shall be a reminder of record collecting folly.

              Enjoyed Belafonte's 1964 release which shows a bit more breadth than much of his stuff I'd heard...
              heck yes, contains the mighty "Big Boat Up The River"... a Paul Murphy jazz dance classic.

                First buy this year was this.

                Mythos- Quasar on sky records. I dont have any feeling in my toes anymore but it was worth it.

                  I'd been planning a break from posting for a while, but Shere Khan's post of "Turkish Mambo" is too strong not to acknowledge. A Tristano album was amongst my earliest jazz listens. For some reason it made no impression and I have never again looked out for any. I fully expect that to change now. Anyone care to give any pointers? Especially in the "Turkish" and/or "mambo" direction.

                  Is the Frederick Fennel a banker SK?

                    I like that album - in fact a track got on my latest mix CD - Doobie's Song

                      This:



                      'Hillbilly Jazz' double on Flying Fish records from 1974, what on earth have I let myself in for.

                      Just diving in, its a bit like Benny Goodman has swallowed a fiddle. Not made it to sides 3 and 4 don't think this is a keeper but I'll find a use for it.

                        I rate there slightly higher than Nucleus-lite..... but agreed they don't quite deliver to the max. My 2 favourite tracks:

                          That's a weird track isn't it but there's a nice relaxed feel to the whole LP; £3 well spent. Twelve quid for Lennie was a good price considering the condition. I also picked up Neil Ardley's 'Kaleidoscope of Rainbows' for £3. I bought it because it was mint and had a laminated cover and my copy doesn't have a laminated cover and isn't mint. I thought it was one of his I was not that keen on until I got home and started playing it- then I remembered how good it is. Amazing that I have to buy a record again to remind myself how much I like it!

                            Yeah probably being a tad hard on 'Isotope'. I guess my disappointment stems from pre-internet days when I was dipping my toes in the waters of fusion and Canterbury and its ilk. I read so many good things and heard so many rumours about them I was always going to be dissapointed when I finally got hold of some. I have similar feelings about 'National Health'.

                            Weird thing is I see their first album all over the place these days!

                              For a rare trip out that's a class haul!

                                I spoke too soon! Quick look on Discogs confirmed I've got a 1994 repress after all. Still happy with it, as it's minty ��
