    Busy day and week coming up but still managed to do a few chazzas in a town I've not done for a bit. Wished I'd took a pic but 'Cancer Research' had '19.99 on Amazon/Ebay' with varying prices on albums once even said '10 on CD!' like the market for collectible CD's has any kind of crossover. Made me laugh but I left with this cheap/exploito comp:

    Various - The Name of the Game Cheapest at 3 quid and probably the best thing there.

    On to the Red Cross for a couple of 50p jobs. Seem to remember someone bigging this up so I gave it a go:

    Shelly Manne/Andre Previn etc - My Fair Lady



    Some MFP Xian from the same shop:

    Kids Praise 2



    On to another and these 2 at 1.99 a pop, they also had a Voodoo Party with a European Sleeve but I'm not that much of a completist and quite skint. Funny couldn't find one for years and found 2 since I got given one.

    Penny McLean - Penny Canadian Disco I think from 1977.



    Supermax - Don't Stop the Music German Disco released in 1977.



    On to the Oxfam bookshop had some interesting Blues and Jazz on Fontana some I had other heavily priced up especially the Blues stuff. They had a mint 'Curried Jazz' hidden in the classical section but I couldn't justify the £19.99 price tag so got this double for £3.99 instead:

    DJ Cam - Substances Some DJ hairlines on one record but the other is clean both should play fine I hope. 90's trip hop I suppose. :

    Was gonna say earlier that 'Nelson Riddle' one from 1970 sounds quite cool but its gone. You only seem to come across the 1950's ones around here.

    Never seen either of those, the cover would grab me on the 'Sounds Today' and no doubt the tracklisting. There was one with 'Blues' in the title I saw the other month but when I looked at the tuneage it was just dull swing numbers from memory so I left alone.

    It's not Astro Sounds, but I think I found my "Sounds of Today" fairly cheap, which is another good 101 Strings, where unamed studio guys tackle stuff like Ode To Billie Joe, and this:

    I've never seen it, I see the 'Sugar and Spice' one a lot which is terrible but I'll be on the look out now. I'd written them off completely apart from their psyche/sc-fi excursion LP which I don't think will turn up in a chazza but weirder things have happened I suppose.

    Give it a few years and this vinyl revival thing will start filling chazzas and boots with great finds.

    It's super-lush but it somehow works.

    This came in the post yesterday late on , big hit for Stones Throw I would think ex Lootpack man snapped up by the majors soon after. Forgot to add, cheap ebay buy no one bothered to out bid me. :



    This is the big tune from the album of course seem to remember it was on a TV show or something, could be wrong, the kids know it as I've been singing various basterdised versions of it to annoy them. :

    Some recents from the wilds



    Tim Souster - SW1T DR1MZ. Interesting avant garde meets pop excursions - the electronically processed viola solo that sounds like whale song is great. Lovely stuff.
    Andy Mackay - Resolving Contradictions. Following a visit to China, this album is based off of or reflects on Chinese music styles.
    Mikis Theodorakis - Z. Finally grabbed a copy of this well-known soundtrack on the cheap.
    A couple of late 80s ECM albums I didn't know the artists - Mikhail Alperin, Dino Saluzzi. Both are stylistically what you'd expect, although Saluzzi is a bandoneon player so that records has a melancholy Argentine-tinged ECM sound which is super.
    101 Strings - East Of Suez. Their 'exotica' album, thought I'd never find one, finally turns up in a charity shop.
    Theolonius Monk - The Golden Monk. The guy that turns up at the car boot once or twice a year with bucketloads of awesome records for cheap was there. But I wasn't, until very late on. I picked this from the bleached carcass of his stall - 90% of the records he'd bought already gone.
    The Sergio Mendes albums were charity shop pick ups, couldn't leave them behind.



    Two Richard Torrance albums! I love Richard Torrance. Shocking cover art may be a clue to why he never really hit the big time.
    I decided to purge all my Dory Previn albums. Then I decided that was stupid, because she's brilliant. Then I bought a copy of We're Children Of Coincidence And Harpo Marx to move closer to Dory Previn completionism.
    Gary Myrick - Language. Chazza punt, 1983 mini-album which has some catchy slightly odd rocky stuff.
    Les Reed - The Music Of Noel Coward. Never seen this one before. Not really a Coward fan and this instrumentals album doesn't rev things up enough for me.
    Rockets - Plasteroid. Daft silver spacemen disco grooves.
    A couple of classical lesser-spotted albums, and a beat up Otis Redding album for a quid.

    There is a track on "Karate Amazones" which to my ears follows the "Dirty Harry" format - driving rhythm + ethereal vocal overlay. But not as good.
