  • One solitary find although I do have a mini pile from earlier in the week to go through but I picked this up on my travels for free, has the corner cut off on mine which is weird, maybe because it came out on 'Casablanca' the same year I think and was a warehouse thing as its a uk issue on 'GM Records'.

    From 1973 with a 'Chas Jankel' penned number which sounds very rock and roll with a touch of blockheads, his name drew me to it to be honest. The rest is a mixture of covers or penned pieces by other artists in the Southern Rock style, nice listen as I'm digging this sort of thing of late:



    On the rear he's kissing that goat by the way!

    Only YouTube clip:




    Oh almost forgot bagged the other two studio albums 'Jake Thackery' did for EMI on the bay for cheap not got the live one though, saw a cheapish one but it was a later press masquerading as an OG.

    Crikey you've been busy TB, any Supersister is great as are all your pics, blimey.

    • Long John Baldry stood on my dad's foot once. I could try and persuade him to tell the story for that Sky Arts TV series

      • He wasn't running toward a field full of goats at the time at the time by any chance?

        • Ouch! He was a big fella too. I think you should put that snippet in the thread anyway, back story or not.
          Bought far too much this month Amidar. Curtains are down now (well, I've got my eye on one 45) until Luton Record Fair. Might have a little sniff round there.

          • Same here, bought two reissues this week and caved in on the 'Vic Mars' too all this whilst shifting a ton of stuff out of the door. Shutters well and truly down for a bit now he says...

            • Just the one from a charity today. The cover looked interesting, but with a date of 1962 it's all classical adaptions. I would've passed it up if I hadn't noticed Electronic Sound Patterns in the track list at the end of the B-side. For a dollar you can't go wrong with that, and it looks in excellent nick.

              Then I get outside, check the credits a bit more, and realize just who those Sound Patterns are by.

              • That's a bit of a touch for a dollar Spacefin. What are the D.O. tracks like?

                • Shutters Back up, couldn't let a mint OG Mono of this slip through for my fingers for a tenner:



                  'Kanai Dutt' pulling off some serious Tabla moves.

                  https://www.discogs.com/Ravi-Shankar...elease/2071835

                  Not on the album but what a rock star:



                  and a decent copy OG of 'Roy Wood - Boulders' for little money cos its got 'Barbara Hibbert Xmas 73' written in Biro on the back (Its mine now Babs) and this for a quid:



                  Am I a fool, probably just realised its on 'myrrh' never have much luck with those guys, mines on 'Pye' they must have licensed it, sure someone gave me a heads up on it though, oh well maybe a gem on it.

                  EDIT: Musically this isn't to bad with stalwart 'Clem' on drums 'John Wetton' on bass but they pissed me off from the start with their dissing of 'JCS' which I've loved since I was about 16. They also seem to think that going to get an education so you can hone a God given skill (if you believe in such things) in writing is a bad thing in their world and you should 'Say it Like it Is' whatever that's supposed to mean. On to the second track reading the cover notes if my understanding is correct they seem to believe the Bible was written by 'God' or 'Jesus'. C'mon guys Lawd knows how many people wrote it in the first instance and how many Kings have changed it over the years. So they've got my back up from the get go but I'm persevering.

                  Having listened to it I feel like a schoolkid who's just taken a verbal dressing down for something I haven't done. One of the most self indulgent, selfish un-christian things I've ever listened to. Sad because the musical backing wasn't to bad albeit I took it off 2 tracks before the end of side 2 about as much as I could stand. Verdict: A Real Downer!

                      Wow, excellent Dawkins style rant there Amidar...Wasn't me who gave you the heads up....this is what I said in May last year;

                      "Malcolm & Alwyn - 'Fools Wisdom' - exactly the kind of mildly groovy Christian pop thingy that lurks in chazzas waiting to ensnare you...well, the free poster sold me on it...had a quick listen...not terrible...not terribly good either..."

                      Did you get the poster with yours?....you could always throw darts at it....

                      Maybe try these guys?

                      you can hear colours when they rhyme...

                        Much of it's what you'd expect; wibbly Radiophonics from tone generators, given she'd apparently just left the BBC. Rhythmic Variation #1 would be my pick; post-Steve Reich it's more comprehensible, but I can only imagine what the teachers in 1962 thought.



                        I appear to have got myself a strange pressing as the latter half of the Oram tracks are credited but clearly missing. Very bizarre, and a little disappointing. Could be worse though.

                        • Haha, no but I feel I've been diddled out of a free poster now too! I dunno I was tired when I listened but it came across as a couple of guys who had just discovered religion and if you don't listen to what they say your'e going to hell. If God is Love I think the original LP of 'Jesus Christ Superstar' they so despise on track 1 does a much better job at celebrating the almighty than they managed. I love a good bit of Xian or John Coltrane's homage to the Lord that is 'A Love Supreme' for example but as said it felt more like a bollocking than a celebration!

                          So I'm no Dawkins, 'Ravi Shankar' and his cohorts provide a perfect homage to devotion on side 2 of that first LP without a word being spoke!

                          Your recommendations are sound 'Jake Thackery' and I even bought that 'Isley Brothers' comp on CD for the car and thats just recent times.

                          Besides that it stopped me spending more on an ECM of 'Keith Jarrett' which would have no doubt featured lots of jazz yodeling! I don't know what would have been worse Jarett's strange be bop grunting or Mal and Al's preaching.

                          • I just had a look at the poster and actually it's more of a lyric sheet. Reading 'Tell It Like It Is' I get the impression that M & A were trying to reclaim Christ for the more anti-materialist hippy wing of the movement, in tune with the times I suppose. Maybe they thought JC might include backers of west end musicals with the rest of the moneylenders.

                            I've always been happy in my atheism, but you have to judge the success of any work of art on how good it is at fulfilling it's intended purpose, so I can still appreciate a good devotional piece - to be honest I can't say that either Malcolm & Alwyn or Tim & Andrew really measure up to my criteria, although I'll concede that Petula Clark makes a convincing job of 'I Don't Know How To Love Him'.

                            Coltrane of course beats them all, but by the same token I can also enjoy Slayer's 'South Of Heaven', so I guess these things even themselves out...I believe in the freedom of religious worship, but I might have to draw the line at jazz yodelling...

                              Steve Ashley - Stroll On (Gull)
                              https://mainlynorfolk.info/steve.ash.../strollon.html
                              70s folk rock. lots of familiar names on the record: BJ Cole, Barry Dransfield, Chris Karan, Dave Mattacks, Lea Nicholson, Simon Nicol, Dave Pegg, Danny Thompson, Royston Wood. Bit of a punt this - it was recommended on a forum (probably mudcat) but couldn't find much info or any soundclips online. Mostly self-written rather than Trad, but enjoying it so far.

                              (edit - actually just had another Google and there's a fair few recommendations online, including several on this board, it's just soundclips that seem to be harder to find)

                              • Second City Sound - Love Is Blue

                                http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/321907623409?rmvSB=true

                                Bumped into Ninja Simone at the Spitalfields fair and took a punt on this. Never seen it before and can say that it is fairly rubbish, apart from the cover of Watermelon Man and the exploito cover. Look at those boobs! Buy me buy me it shouts from the racks. Watermelons - boobs, maybe there is some sly undercurrent going on.
