  • Didn't think I'd be buying much more this month after the road trip (posted earlier this month) but as it was my birthday last week it seemed wrong to not at least look!! Picked up some of these in Truro.



    Got these three from Music Nostlagia in the Pannier Market.
    Bobby Naughton Units - Understanding. Didn't know this but it looked jazzy, features vibes, clavinet and flute amongst other instruments, and I liked the Hans Richter cover so punted on this. Turns out to be free/improv jazz and might be a stretch too far for me.
    Strawbs - S/T. Been loosely after a copy of Witchwood so again took a punt on this their first album which I hadn't heard. The cover is truly dreadful but there's a nice photo on the back with some serious Afghan coat action going on. Not gripped me yet.
    The London Jazz Four - Take A New Look At The Beatles. One of those I can recall seeing on here at some point. Paid a bit for it but nowhere near Discogs prices. Cool jazz Beatles covers, nothing to dislike there.



    Armando Sciascia - Impressions In Rhythm & Sound. Been a few cheap RSD copies on Ebay of late so grabbed one quick smart.
    Os Brazoes - S/T. Birthday present from Deep Down Heavy (cheers bud). Top notch latin psych album. Love it.
    Andre Brasseur - The Fantastic Organ. Cheap comp picked up in Oxfam. Liking Red Dust and Speedy No.1 on this.
    Anita Harris - Nursery Rhymes For Our Times. Quite rare for me to feature a 7" but thought it might be of interest on here. Another cheapie from Oxfam and can't find a listing on Discogs which surprised me. From the blurb on the back it seems to be a follow-on EP from her first album Somebody's In My Orchard which I know has a few fans here. Tracks are: Old Queenie Cole, Eleanor Rigby, Bang Bang, B-A-D For Me. Nice, lazy, crime jazz version of Bang Bang.

    • A few more 45s - most of these were my birthday pressie from my wonderful wife for my, 'ahem', significant birthday.

      Great RnB two sider from a local charity shop (with the Mike Berry Dave Davies tune lurking underneath)



      Ace garage psycher - thanks Paul



      I guess everyone on here has one of these now (part 2)?



      Great fuzzy US 60's punker



      Well known Afro Funker with breakz



      Funky UK rock from Spoke records faves



      Spencer Davis moonlighting on a tough to find UK TV theme tune. Ahhh Jenny Hanley....



      Longtime want. Superb mod funk from the 'dancing with the captain' man. Amazing.



      Great fuzzy version of the Zombies standard.



      Yep! Another fuzzy dancer.



      Owned this 45 many moons ago but got rid as I had the LP. Rectifying this foolish mistake. Slightly different version than the LP.



      Another funky fuzzy dancer - as comped on LBB thus driving up the prices.



      Strange, hard and heavy psych that owes a debt to 'Purple Haze'

      • One word Lee....Top A few I'm going to have to check, because I don't know them, but know they will be good. Didn't realise Run Shaker Life was an Alan Tew arrangement.
        I don't even know what the Smile 45 is. Glad you like the Blue Things, but I'll bring something back from Hoorn to even things out a bit.
        After 50, I think it's a good idea to start counting the birthdays backwards from there.
        Everyone tear down your own little wall
        That keeps you from being a part of it all
        Because you've got to be one with the one and all
        You've just got to be close to it all

        • Cheers Paul. Counting back the way it is!

          That Smile thing is Bosco - Running the Mardi Gras. No chance of ever even seeing an original so copped the recent reissue.

          • Really like the Blue Things by the way. The strange version of 'twist and shout' on the flip is an added bonus too!

            • Del Jones' Positive Vibes

              Last night I was tipped off about a new stack of records being delivered to a shop I like to go to.

              I came across this: Del Jones' Positive Vibes - Court Is Closed, originally recorded in 1973. Psych funk, very reminiscent of Curtis Mayfield.



              Never heard of it before but it smelled right and the price was OK ... delighted to find something like this unexpectedly.

              Only managed to listen to side 1 so far ...
              "White paper inner sleeve is pristine ..."

              • Charity shop found for a pound:




                John Cage; Steve Reich - Three Dances; Four Organs. Very pleased to grab a copy of this, the Cage is lovely and noisy and flowing - not pretentious or precious. The Reich is super minimalist and works brilliantly but would certainly mither some eardrums.
                Harry De Wit - Tumult. This looked promising, some avant garde dance/theatre music by someone that builds their own instruments - but it’s not as adventurous as I was hoping.
                Martinu; Janacek - Field Mass; Amarus; some interesting choral pieces.
                The Ventures - Underground Fire. Cracking fuzzy stuff, from 1969 - pretty late for a mono.
                Couple of steel band excursions in LPR and the Original Tropicana Steel Band, neither really grabbing me. I’ve had the OTSB before, it hasn’t magically changed into gold in the interim.
                The Bruton Music - Electric Piano Solos is late 80s and fairly anodyne in the places where I’ve put the needle down.
                Rufus featuring Chaka Khan has unappealing cover art and includes an unappealing giant poster.

                They crawled from the cheap bins:



                The Sandii and The Sunsetz and Susan albums are Japanese synth pop from the early Eighties, with YMO connections. Intriguing interesting need more listens.
                Rhinoceros - Satin Chickens. Fun bit of 60s rock, great cover.

                • more finds, none of them real keepers for me, the Lefon Andrews is soul gospel , the rest are probably all known on here

                  • Not listened to any of these yet cheapo charity shop finds. I've just got back from St Andrews but I bought this for 50p before I went I thought it was the best of but silly me it just a repress of 'live at the pickwick' anyway it Mint and I love everything by the Peddlers even if I do have the first press so I'll be a completest only the biggie and 'Live at London' to go and the best of! :

                    Peddlers - Georgia on My Mind



                    Not much in the Charity shops of St Andrews and lots of people in Town most of these were a quid or so:

                    Keep Giving the Shads another go, I like 'Last Train to Clarksville' so it might float my boat:

                    The Shadows - From, Bruce, Brian and John



                    When in Scotland... :

                    Scots Wha Ha'e - Gaberlunzie in Concert



                    Jackie Lynton - The Jackie Lynton Album



                    This one looks quite cool but could well be cheese:



                    This one looks interesting, wind player, produced by Pete Townsend, I've never heard of him myself:

                    Andy Newman - Rainbow



                    Had to give Mike Nesmith's solo album from 1979 a go just for the title alone:

                    Michael Nesmith - Infinite Rider on the Big Dogma



                    Slim pickings so I treated myself to a second press of 'Boards of Canada - Music has the Right to Children' online because Its one of my favourite albums of all time and I kept meaning to for months. Wont post a stock image of that sure everyone is familiar.

                    • The Nesmith LP has the excellent Capsule. Nice drums.

                      • Nice one Benny, what I've heard so far I'd describe it as 'Kooky Yacht Rock' in the 'Starbuck' vein.

                        I love LP's with really pretentious titles, probably the Proghead in me.

                        Know who Andy Newman is now 'Thunderclap Newman' didn't resonate as never been into the Who and any of their side projects. Anyway everyone knows 'Something in the Air' and he sadly died in April of this year.

                        Flamingos album is pretty terrible but has some spoken word samples I could find a use for but sound wise they just sound pretty much like 'The Drifters' as I suspected. The odd track has raised an eyebrow but nothing to get excited about.

                            I hope you will agree the music in the grooves is very appealing. Fools Paradise, Little Boy Blue, Sweet Thing, Circles all essential. Rufus with Chaka made some great music, a truly unique mix of soul and funk. They were a key part of the soundtrack to my teenage years.

                            I just wish they would issue remastered versions of their albums, some of them have muddy sound.

                            • Dropped a load of records off at a local charity shop that had none in and then dropped a bunch off at the local market, whilst there grabbed these for free. :

                              [IMG][/IMG]

                              Twice times Keyboard Jazzed up versions of classical pieces on WRC released in 1966. Listening now not bad to be fair, file under Bach Jazz. I never realised there was so much of this kind of thing.

                              Nina and Frederik Have no idea why I picked this 10" up, never seen it before looks in EX condition.

                              Trio Albert Raisner - Magic Harmonica Not one you see everyday in fact I've never seen it ever and its Mint. Could go either way. I'll update my thoughts. EDIT: Latin tuneage on harmonicas with drums and a bit of organ. No lost classic but an interesting piece of exotica in different circumstances it would cheer me up but its not having that effect today, definitely one to save for a future mix I think.

                              Goombay Dance Band - Sun of Jamaica Polish press, again no idea in fact I thought I'd put it back. Hopefully a chazza will profit or I'll find some use for it.

                              Shelley Manne - My Fair Lady Vol 2 Having bought vol 1 reissued on MFP (not had time to play it) seemed fate I should grab this on vogue.

                              Oh a fresh copy of 'Matt Berry - Witchazel' came in the post, hoovered up 3 of his albums pretty cheap this week and the wife enjoys his music so its a win, win.

                              • Ananda Shankar is the 75 label, 76 sleeve press.
                                Beast 2nd lp on Evolution
                                45s are
                                Jaki Whitren - Human failure
                                Clive Alan Orch & Singers- ep on Avenue with a top version of Jumpin' Jack Flash
                                Six of the best top hits ep- also on Avenue . Good version of Double Barrel, with compressed piano sound replacing the Hammond of the og. Sounds a bit punchier as a result.
                                Holger Munzer - Drop out. Great flip. Saw this flagged up by BBOB, nabbed a cheapie.


                                Roy Orbison - Twinkle Toes. Fuzzy Roy job
                                Joe Tex - I gotcha. Funky job
