    Some very interesting finds to start the year off from you guys. Today I took the bulk of my trades to off load them in town

    Here's what I got



    Lots of variation on this one, I just got their first one off ebay for a tenner so I thought I would give this a go, loads of sampley moments and a whole host of styles, from free jazz to blues to funk. Interesting indeed.




    Live triple LP in a nearmint gatefold sleeve for 7 quid, couldnt pass this up, all their best stuff on it too. Bonus!


    Never heard of this one, pretty good, I dont like their later stuff but this one I find a bit more appealing. French 68' press


    Another one im not familiar with, very tough deep funk with a some killer tracks. 2006 reissue on soul brother records.




    Amazing live LP, absolute classic funk mod groover. Not the best live recorded LP but its a long time want.


    Just because.

    And some killer 45s, personally im not really a big 45 collector, never have been but these 3 are just...hot damn.

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

      i like that...a lot. never heard it before. i can imagine baldelli playing that at a different speed at cosmic club in the early 80's.

        To be brutally honest I bought or found most of this lot in December but I didn't receive or play most of them until after the 1st so I'm calling them January finds - so there

        I took a stroll around a few local haunts just before Xmas and a local shop which usually has zero throughput - the same wall LPs have been there for well over ten year years now - turned up a couple of winners!



        The Boa Constrictor & a Natural Vine is great psych tinged folk with a nice weirded out tape echo track and a fuzz blaster too. The Headless Heroes was the big surprise though - an orig of a proper 'wall of 95' record in a local shop!!?? What?? I'm sure no introduction is need for this one. Still sounds like a great LP to me.

        The pair of them came in at less than £20

        The next one popped up cheap on Discogs and remembered it being a Mr Sayers spin so I nabbed it



        ...then I remembered it veers from a fuzz laden, drum heavy work of brilliance to being a fucking unlistenable racket and back again several times over the course of each side. I still can't decide if I like it or not - proper mad.

        I found this clutch of LPs in a wander around Ashbourne in that dull post Xmas / pre NYE malaise.



        The Tyke is an 'almost there' private press. The Carl Douglas has 'Witchfinder General' on it - a 45 which has always escaped my clutches. The ...Both Worlds was a bit of a surprise find in darkest Derbyshire - credible funk on a credible label!

        this Rubble / Mod Spin classic dropped through the door on the last post before Xmas - great blue eyed thing it is too!



        This long time want was waiting for me when I got home from my extended Xmas break - I've pictured it on it's frankly massive packaging.



        Probably the best UK Xian psych / heavy rock LP I've heard and a very tough pull. I've only ever seen it on Utrecht walls until now. I jumped on a bargain (I reckon) virtual copy. Aside from the slightly ill advised reggae track it's a pretty solid LP.

        I had a wee trip to see the legend that is Someblokecalledfuz yesterday to hand over some records, have a cuppa and talk some shite. Some trading occurred and I left clutching these



        Chuffed to get an orig Xingu - I've had a reissue for ears and it still sounds like a great record to me.'Moby Dick' will be getting a blasting at the Mud this weekend! The Living Stones is Scottish Xian rock / folk - I traded my better copy to Fuz a while back but found that I missed it so was really happy to take his 'lesser copy' which plays well enough on my Technics.

        ...not a bad start to the year

          Picked up a stash of soundtrack albums today, they were all were £2 each, I hadn't heard of some of the films
          but these were the pick of the bunch along with an unexpected album in a plain white sleeve which I couldn't resist.

            Nice! Whenever I see the valichi papers OST I always pass it up, not that it happens very often. The spy with a cold nose has a wicked cover.
            Headless heroes of the apocalypse has been on my want list for a long time too. Fancy ripping some tracks off that out of darkness LP LDJB? Keen to hear some of it.

              Isn't always either some kind of Church Service or Mass HG? I must have a few of them by now dotted around cant bring myself to get rid.

              Some interesting soundtrack finds, I know a sax player online who played on 'Those Magnificent Men...' known him for years virtually and he's never revealed his identity and that's one of the few records I know he played on. He's full of great stories mind you going back to playing sax on a few Joe Meek sessions.

                I googled the chapel it was recorded in and I've written to the vicar and sent her some scans and offered to send her a download,
                brownie points in heaven, hopefully

                  Nice one, most I find are pretty local to the area however the last one I found in a white cardboard sleeve was from a GCE music examination in Birmingham from 1977, the questions that is not a random recording of scribbling pencils!

                      Can do.

                      Most of it is youtube-able

                        Stan Getz + Eddie Sauter - 'Mickey One' Soundtrack.

                        I picked up the Getz-Sauter 'Focus' album last year, one of my favourite finds of the year. So I had to grab this when I saw it, and it's also great. Never seen the film, but from what I can make its some kind of psychodrama - the score reflects the protagonist's varying states of mind. To mirror the paranoia, pandemonium, peacefulness (and whatnot) Sauter composes all over the shop in different crime jazzy styles, and Getz improvises through it all... great.

                          The film is definitely worth watching - the opening sequence of the film is particularly awesome.

                            Ooh, great work on getting a copy of Out of Darkness. If it was via a certain popular auction site I was one of those you outbid. I've got a CD with extra tracks but would love to snag a copy sometime for a bit less than silly money. What's the Living Stones album like? I've got a growing collection of Xian rock and folk, and recommend Joshua if you're after other Key Records rarities ...

                              Cool. Occasionally, I meet the daughter of Stan Getz at my lunchtime charity shop trawl. She's not after records, though, just general vintage/retro stuff. She did ask me to look out for records by her dad as she doesn't have that many.

                                It's usually not expensive. Sky records sold plenty of records in Germany and they are usually in very good condition.
