  • Found these at lunchtime:



    Four Indian singles. The bottom two are Aradhana (45-AE.1306) and Mahal (45-AE.1096), which are from soundtracks I believe, and both from 1969. Though all will probably go straight into the trade pile, I couldn't leave them behind.

    And this:


    The Rocking Shadows 'Beat-Mis' recorded just down the road in Sommeren about 46 years ago.
    Supposedly pretty odd.

      • Just back from the record do at the charity warehouse. Picked up some good stuff, mainly Mint folk and jazz. Maybe I should have gone to the rock box first as I missed out on an early press of 'Piper at the Gates of Dawn'. Oh well... Me says I did alright. Here's my favorite find of the day still in its original shrink although there is a bit of crackle that'll easily clean up I guess. Who'd have funk 'John Cameron' was a decent crooner (well he's probably a bit marmite to be honest but I dig his lungs.) on this swinging, cool jazz 60's oddity. Top Top but above all a really fun and entertaining out there album:



        Excuse the stock image mine is an original EMI Press on vinyl not the Vocalion CD reissue.

        It was friendly atmosphere apart from the obvious dealers dis-cogging for their lives on their phones. I felt a bit like cratedigger able to sit down on a sofa and sift through a big stack of vinyl. I had to get ruthless though and cull some as there was some decent early 90's Techno (Rephlex etc and Skint Records stuff in the main) but it was battered to hell and priced up to match. Oh yeah and great of him to put all the early Beatles in one box which was snaffled in an instant, not that it interests me and there was no decent prog or Punk come to that nor any krautrock or free jazz but plenty of 'New Model Army' albums and the entire 'Abba' discography up for grabs, let them have their mojo rock I say but nice to meet some fellow diggers and observe their tastes which were quite varied to say the least.

        The only 12" EP i bought was this because I'd never come across it before but I seem to remember it, think I got the right one its a promo not that it makes a difference. Its 33rpm but you would have easily gotten away with playing it at 45! :

        Just to add as regards pricing nothing there was silly cheap so I think by the end of the day he'd have made the local hospice a big chunk of change a local charity I have connections to who do great work.

        • I'll do what I can one at a time as I listen to it. Next up is this by 'Dave Liebman' from 1975. I'd have probably dismissed it despite the presence of 'John Abercrombie' on guitar because of its 1975 vintage and it is a bit smooth in places but I opened up the gatefold saw a picture of a pair of tabla and noticed 'Badal Roy' was on percussive duties and had co written some tracks so thought it worth parting with my 4 quid for. Liebman plays tenor sax and flute and the opener 'Dr Faustus' is a decent all guns, hand defying, blazing jazz fusion piece and the side ends on the co written with 'Badal Roy' 'Sweet Hand Roy':



          It all gets a bit smooth in places and probably reminds me a bit of 'Icarus' by 'The Paul Winter Consort' not as good as that album though in my opinion but you get the picture there is an emphasis on world fusion despite some of the technical label notes about how it was mixed. However I love to hear well recorded percussion and Tabla mixed with bands, Tabla especially so as it must be a bugger to get right. So that said I can forgive its foibles and excursions into smooth as there is good music to be had here and some sweet sitar action on side two:

          • Next up this:



            Not much to say other than its un-played but I cant seem to date it. It's 'TRA 125' with the newer Transatlantic logo, the colour one with the boat globe and flags and its on thinner vinyl than a 1965 release would be. Cant see anything on discogs, there is no barcode on it so I'm guessing a late 70's repress or something along those lines, matrix doesn't seem to tell me much either, the yellowing of the inner sleeve suggests more. Its Minter than Mint so as chuffed as if I'd found the original 1968 release. Its Bert Jansch its his second album for Transatlantic and his playing is sublime. Does any clued up plusser know what year the logo inner changed?

            • This from the library sale. Not sure how it got overlooked. True, the sleeve gives it a rustic look. Perhaps it was completely fresh in.

              Protest songs, it would seem. Bass/guitar/vocals/femme vox. A couple of well known names on writing credits. Not really my thing, but a charming change this afternoon from the po-faced classical I have been imbibing.

              Some other stuff too. I may post some of that.

              • Discogs describe it as 'Political Latin Jazz' bet 'Babycart' would be interested in that. I looked as I couldn't work out whether or not it was a 7 inch or an LP.

                OK Last one for now because I'm all music-ed out and probably boring everyone 'to their britches' with my finds. I paid nearly a tenner for this bop album by 'Bobby Timmons' on 'Prestige' from 1965 his third album as leader and featuring his debut on 'Vibes' on one if not the best track 'The Return of Ghenghis Khan' on this 5 track LP. Lot of crackle but to be expected on an album this old I guess although it lessens when I press the Mono button on my amplifier, it should clean up easily enough. Its an upbeat selection of tunes in the main gets a bit MJQ in places (I guess that's the vibraphone, more on the MJQ in a later post(s) they are a three piece but cant say I recognise his sidemen. Its a definite keeper though despite the most boring sleeve notes in the world taking up most of the back of the sleeve. What is it with jazz reviewers thinking they are more important than the musicians? :

                      That wasn't too bad. This was an interesting scene at the time. I remember Metal Hammer raving about bands like Love/Hate and Mind Funk (Love/Hate's debut was picked best of the month). Then there was Conny Bloom's group Electric Boys, they had some good songs.

                        Beat-mis as in "Beat Mass".
                        Turns out it's awful.
                        The band sound great - great organ sound especially - but the singing completely ruins it,
                        like Val Doonican with a childrens choir singing christmas songs in dutch backed by a decent little beat combo.

                        • I found a similar thing from up my way 'Gospel Rock' pretty awful in the main but it provided one track and a bit of spoken nonsense for my swap mix.

                            Top swaps, Gogo. You will never get tired of picking spares of 'Romance', particularly in an original sleeve.

                              Looks interesting and was cheap enough for a punt. No idea what it sounds like but given side 2 is a one tracker I'm guessing prog / hard psych?

                              Medium/hard Psych! Very badly recorded and off-key that you'll think the centre-hole is off centre!

                              • My stepson amd his American fiancee have just returned from a weekend in Huddersfield of all places and brought me back this signed on the back to my mothers name. Its quite good actually. They said the seller laughed when he sold it to them, don't know why its got some potential:



                                Lancastrian folk singer born in the same town as me. Bit of comedy mixed with folk songs and its got a song called 'Hairy Mouse' on it whats not to like.
