    A rare hoard in a chazza. Tower Of Power's Sparkling In the Sand in its full length form is a beautiful thing, one of my long time absolute favourites. Get the album.

    That Loleatta Holloway 45 can be picked up stupidly cheap for such a great slice of deep soul.

    I was chuffed to pick up a copy for £2 in a chazza a couple of years ago. Great collection.

    Great album from a master (RIP). Unfortunately I don't believe there was ever a Super Dude II. Lots of other good finds too.



    These Feb finds have whetted my appetite again, have done virtually no digging this year so far. Just spent a long weekend in Paris with wife and friends. I had suppressed the digging urge as knew there would be little or no chance on that front. Did slip in a bit of research on the Sunday morning to find that a few promising (and close-ish) shops were closed on the final two days of our visit Also passed one that did not open for another 2 hours, and walking to the station at the end of the trip in a direction not previously explored walked past another one just around the corner from where we were staying. Doh. It was obviously not meant to be.

      Yeah its a great sampler, do I need it probably not but it alerted me to some good stuff back in the 90's pre 'Solid Air' John Martyn for one and 'King Crimson' probably more a nostalgia thing but its a nice selection of tracks, similar with the Arnie sporting 'Rockbuster' comp I could probably lose that but for the same reasons.

        1974, I rate it quite highly, very nice indeed, plus there's moog on it.

          And 3rd Avenue Blues Band has a great version of 'It's Your Thing' and 'Mean Greens' is pretty good also. And an excellent cover.
          Yeah the cover got me excited, the version of Mean Greens is damn good.

            Sweet, same year as 'Horacee Arnold - Tales of the Exonerated Flea' think they are both on that too. I used to love all that 'Jan Hammer' on Mini Moog vs 'John Mclaughlin' on guitar call/response thing they did in Mahavishnu Orchestra together.

            Edit: Nope no Jerry Goodman on that lots of Mini Moog though and reminded me I must get a copy of 'Horacee Arnold - Tribe' on vinyl!

              I won 2 x boxes of old tosh in an auction yesterday except for a few hidden gems which I put to one side,
              but what I did discover down the side of one of the boxes was this lovely Readers Digest record catalogue .
              I have quite a few of these old LP booklets now but this is the first time I have seen this one and I am sure,
              nay positive at least 2 of you will be excited to see some scans from it, so here ya go









              unused RD stamps in the centre of the booklet!











              and a useful price list insert

                I must have seen the vast majority of those box sets on many occasions some more than others (they are always Mint) but I don't think I've ever seen 'Golden Guitar Magic' ever or the Organ one. I know as I'd probably buy both albeit not for any of the above prices. I paid 50p for my box set of 'Mood Music for Relaxation...' I have no idea why, it didn't relax me in the main although it put me in a bad mood at points.

                Lordy, I've even bought 'The Happy Trumpeter' and that came free with the 'Bygraves' box set!

                  the Organ one is all church/concert/cinema organ stuff and not very exciting at that IIRC.

                  Found these today:
                  Wavemaker - New Atlantis
                  https://www.discogs.com/Wavemaker-Ne...elease/1550693
                  ex-Radiophonic bod. Based on some Francis Bacon thing (not read the insert yet), but the "shirt off" portraits on the back hinted it might be a bit more funky than proggy. Listening now, and it's not bad. Slightly spacey synth stuff with a slight groove at times.

                  New Percussion Group Of Amsterdam - Go Between
                  https://www.discogs.com/New-Percussi...elease/5558758
                  Looked interesting, all percussion - marimbas etc.

                    NPGoA does look interesting B. Any chance of a detailed critique from you at some point?

                    Bruford well known of course. I suspect that I have a Japanese marimba LP somewhere. Liner notes have composers talking up Keiko Abe as a phenom.

                      Anyone else got this?



                      You probably have but not in this homemade sleeve ... it's actually Beatles Studio Sessions Volume One ... and not an especially interesting bootleg either ...

                        I also decided to dip my toe into Maria Callas, one from a huge box of cheap opera LPs at the flea market:



                        I think I'm at the beginning of a very steep learning curve ...

                          will try and write something useful! there's a few reviews online of it too. Not listening yet, other that an quick needle drop to see if the 3 quid was well spent.

                          Also picked up Wolfgang Flür's (Kraftwerk drummer) autobiography for a pound, which looks interesting

                            Whenever I went to a gig I'd always go to a record fair later on and there was always a guy selling cassette boots of gigs most of the time I'd find the one I'd been to sounding like it was recorded in someones pocket. I always bought them though.

                              I'll ask my wife for recommendations if you want. she's big on La Divina.
                              Goes right over my head, to be honest, but I'm always finding Lucia di Lammermoor in the Cd player.
