      Other people's everyday digs almost always look more interesting than mine. The vinyl is always blacker on the other side of the world.

      Ace Afro-blues sleeve.

      I'll give Don Cooper a fair hearing. But I am conscious of the risk of genre creep in my listening. I might, for example, soon have to be stricter with myself in the mod-class context.

          Season started at local car boot. Not a huge turnout of sellers, 40-50, but OK. A gripper was selling and had actually brought a few boxes of 1£ records with the usual non-records stuff he is selling. He claimed they were fresh, but were not that interesting. I picked up a few punts, none turned out that interesting. This car boot is fenced in and closed for buyers while sellers are setting up, no early-bird entry, so that means he has free range until opening time.
          He missed this soundtrack in a small pile of records, happy to pick it up as I like Davie Allen's stuff, some great fuzz action here, and in EX condition with the compulsory punch hole.


          Also went to the record fair in Lund, not a great turnout of sellers. I came home with ten 45s, mostly cheap gap fillers, nothing too exciting, but 45s are where you can make good finds here nowadays. 99% of all vinyl newcomers are album oriented.

            Went back to the same shop I got 'Banana Blush' and picked this one up so I should have all 3 now Ben has gifted me the 'Late Flowering':



            and from the same shop I found the folky single from this label. The guitarist plays in the band. ABCD records 'A Band Called Doris' gettit?

            Might be worth something I don't expect I'll like it despite the folk single on the same label being swap worthy this will probably be new wave of British Heavy Metal fodder. Probably worth something to someone though.



            Also found two copies of the 'Millers Thumb' LP which I put on the Swap. Its Cheshire Folk so I'll probably ebay one bizarre I have 3 copies now!

              Not listened to either of the above yet thought I'd give this a listen first which was part of a bulk internet buy.

              Judy Romero - Judy! Judy! Judy!



              Not Latin Pop as discogs would have you believe this reminds me more of 'The Carpenters' than anything else until I reached the side one closer 'Won't Talk about Love Anymore' which is where the album finds its funk with a bit of jazzy rock. Worth it for this track alone if side two yields no gold. Ooooo side two opens with a bit of organ vs clavinet action, nice. OK lets say its a five tracker with three standouts. Decent session musicians with swing oh and there is one track you could probably classify as 'Latin Pop' but the rest no way. When its good its good when its bad its proper pants ie: 'When a Child is Born'.

              Judy is blind by the way and although this album is from 1975 she 'accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Saviour' in 1972'. I thought that worth mentioning.

                I wonder how long Jesus had been in the frame- I mean was he up against a bunch of possible other 'Lord & Saviours' that Judy was gradually whittling down? At some point did he 'phone her and say, " Judy, it's been seven months; I'm going to have to press you for an answer. Let's be honest, Cloughie is always going to be busy with his football and, frankly, nobody else can compete on beard terms, so shall I pop 'round tomorrow and you can sign up"?

                  My issue is with the sleeve and its title as opposed to her acceptance of mighty old JC. Its called 'Judy! Judy! Judy!' the woman was blind not hard of hearing!

                    Reminds me of the old joke. How do you sell a blind man a dog? You say, Do you want to buy a dog, mate. He's not deaf.

                      I've heard that blind people often have better hearing than seeing people, so "pssst, Judy" would have been a better title.

                          I had this idea that it might indeed have braille on the cover when I bought it but was sadly disappointed, dare say JC was none too pleased either. I like the idea of having 'pssst Judy' in minuscule writing on the cover it has the dual effect of being a great title and making you think what it must like to be almost blind.

                            Came upon a copy of this in OXFAM for 3.99 but it was scratched to buggery and dirty, a sticker said 'still plays' but it was wrecked. I then saw Mike Batt's name upon it and that put me off a bit. It was probably at the right price considering the condition of it. Should I have bought it?

                            They also had an early 'Mothers of Invention' comp on Verve I had to ask to see that one and it was almost as bad, they wanted 8.99 for that.



                            Anyway lots of fresh stock and for under 6 quid I went all nu-jazz and came away with these:







                            Sadly the Funkaho 12" is not the one where he proclaims his love for the Atari 2600.

                            From Mr Market Man I got the following:

                            Marti Caines first album reissued on Chevron and Vol 1 of this bit of Indonesian exploito-pop, cant find a pic for it anywhere will photograph it if anyone is interested but its in a bit of a state:

                            [IMG] [/IMG]

                            A couple of Sinatra latin outings with Deodato some crazy looking choral stuff and this 90's jazz I believe by a female trombonist:



                            From elsewhere I got a Mono version of this Mancini score:



                            and what ever these are:







                            All look minty and new so thought I'd venture into the late eighties early 90's. Have to admit I know Al Stewart but not this album and I do like the cover, its from 1988.

                            All in all under a tenner spent and I had to quietly usher a 'wet brained' alcoholic out of OXFAM and when I paid for my items it smelt like the cashier had shat himself (thinking about it maybe when he bent down to get the Zappa LP out to show me.), for real. Weird trip out indeed. The things we do or have to endure in the name of vinyl hunting! I suppose if your'e going to shit your pants doing it in an empty OXFAM where your'e working surrounded by clean clothes is the place to do it.

                                This was very nice to find:

                                Terumasa Hino Quintet - Snake Hip 7", part of a soundtrack, apparently ...

                                This was bought on the strength of the cover but is less music than the dialogue from a historical drama:

                                Remembering Bantsuma (who was a Japanese actor, famous for his sword-fighting roles in historical dramas)

                                Gotta take chances, even when they don't pay off ...
