  • By George, George! Top work.

    Some of Coltrane's finest work.

    You should take some time away from record shops to listen to those.

    Now, why don't you tell us where exactly in Cricklewood you found them all...

      The 2nd Mascots lp (called Elpee) is worth a listen too.Less "beaty" than the 1st, more freakbeaty! If you find one of those Cratedigger, give me a shout.
      Yeah, that's one I'm looking for as well. It's been a long time since I saw one IRL.

        • Crikey George what a haul, I picked up 'Volunteered Slavery' last year I'm not the video guy. Please don't tell me you found all that jazz in a Chazza at a pound each, I'll cry...

          I picked up a Mint copy of 'Miles Davis - Your'e Under Arrest' last year for 50p bloody awful album anyway the charity place had a record day and I got speaking to a guy who said he'd bought about 20 Mile's records for 50p each earlier in the year. I asked him if he liked jazz he said no he hated it but he knew they would sell, twat, I hope they were all bendy 80's reissues, he either knew enough to leave the worst one or ran out of money! I have to laugh or I'd weep buckets.

          More of a modest selection this week first up a vulture classic I never see and always confuse with a similar one anyway I have it now and its not a half bad collection of soul covers from a slimmed down band, not essential but I'll probably hang onto it. :

          Ray McVay - Big Soul Sound



          More vulture territory I still have to buy these if I see them in Mint condition for a quid or less. I've not listened yet but probably headed to the STS pile in the shed on previous Pourcel form.

          Franck Pourcel - The Importance of your Love



          Clouddead - Ten Big Dada UK issue of this in Mint Condition I wont nick a pic just leave this video of the opening track. A classic in my opinion:



          I also picked up a Light in the Attic copy of Melody Nelson quite cheaply sure everyone knows what that looks like but they've done a lovely job on it.

          On 'Okko' Sitar and Moog there is nothing not to like in those 2 words.

          Racking my brain now to think of 10 records I've been put on to from being on this site for the last couple of years!

            Aren't there some Swedish only Downliners Sect 45s that are pretty wild?
            Yeah, Outside & Why Don't You Smile Now - but they actually have Finnish issues (w/o picture sleeves) as well which are even more rare: that said I managed to get a hold of them both earlier this year - easily among the best things they ever did if you ask me.

            • After years rooting through charity shops, car boots, junk shops and record emporiums you think that you've seen everything that labels like Studio 2 Stereo, MFP and Contour have to offer....and then something like this turns up



              It does exactly what it does on the tin but with NO other instruments - pure moog madness, a bit strange and creepy and I defy anyone to listen more than once.

              From the same house call



              Excellent slice of (northern) soul in UK issue form.

              • A small catch-up and surprisingly all from within the last 2 months for a change.


                Had a birthday trip to Bath last month and having been before I wasn't expecting too much as there aren't any record shops (unless you count Resolution in the Green Park market) but as luck would have it there was a record fair on in the Guildhall. Also a little bit of digging to be done in the Bell Inn on a Sunday if anyone's visiting in the near future.
                Jacques Loussier - Play Bach No.1. Adds to the other Loussier I picked up earlier in the year.
                Al Stewart - The First Album (Bed-Sitter Images).
                Syket - With Love and Can You Keep A Secret? Couple of albums from a Swedish rock/pop band which were sealed and only a couple of quid a piece. Recalled them being recommended by someone doing one of the Amoeba 'What's In My Bag?' vids so gave them a go.



                Some more from Bath.
                Strawbs - Grave New World.
                Strawbs - From The Witchwood.
                Bob Seger System - Mongrel. Think this is as late as I'm going to go with Bob. It's not Ramblin' Gamblin' Man but still worth having and still holds some of that raw energy.
                Keef Hartley Band - Halfbreed.
                P J Harvey - Stories From The City, Stories From The Sea. Very happy to find a reasonably priced copy of this modern classic.



                Found these two in a charity and completely not my thing but liked the covers and thought someone on here might be interested so they're up for trade.
                Pierre Mac Orlan. French spoken word record that looks to be part of a series called Auteurs Du 20e Siècle. Others in the series feature the likes of Albert Camus, Romain Holland, Jean Cocteau, etc.
                Colette plus Pierre Blanchar, Frédérique Hébrard, Edwige Feuillère. As above and only one I can find on Discogs.




                Serge Gainsbourg - London Party 1963-1971. New comp double that's an easy way to get some of Serge's best tracks including one of my faves La Horse.
                Delia Derbyshire and Elsa Stansfield - Circle Of Light. Arrived the other day but waiting for some quiet time to give it a listen.
                Dave Davani Four - Fused! Surprised there wasn't much competition for this on that auction site. Organ-led rhythm and blues.
                Wilson Pickett - The Exciting Wilson Pickett. Lovely clean charity find.

                • I picked up that 'Dave Davani' album last year from Oxfam for a tenner which I thought was an amazing deal. I then noticed there had been a reissue and prices had steadily dropped over the years looking at Poksike, still a decent album at a great price. I found that Moog album recently too, your'e right its suitably bonkers and I've not listened since but I'm quite sure I'll find a use for it.

                  • Bit of downtime at work, the calm before the storm though methinks, so I thought I'd list a few things I'd picked up, taking me up to last Friday.


                    Got these three well-known pieces of parpadelic easiness from Rob's Records:



                    VG+ fodder one and all, but I'm particularly digging the Laurie Holloway album.




                    Also from Rob's (but on a different day):



                    I'm guessing Georgie needs no introduction round these parts and the Cleo Laine LP is one of hers that I don't see around much, but 'Who Walks In When I Walk Out' is a belter. With all the talk of what characterises a VG+ LP, the 'A Hard Road To Travel' LP arrived serendipitously as it's one of those that's hard to pigeonhole, could appeal to everybody or nobody, is really amateurish........................in a good way and is pretty much bonkers. Gospel, soul, fuzz and lo-fi production all in the one package. Some of it sounds almost like an attempt to be Hendrix (ish) and is clearly an ego-trip for the singer as his vocal is so high in the mix in comparison to the other players that it's crazy. Not sure it's one I'd keep and play, but I'm glad it's been brought under the VG+ umbrella and will hopefully remain there.






                    The above set were partly from a nifty trade with Harvey Mettle ('Greasy Bear'), Rob's for the Steve Halpern (straight in the Out pile!) and Discogs for Montreal. Cheers to Rhys for the folk-funk recommendation, as ever, Montreal is just bliss from start to finish. If I wasn't so OCD and rigidly alphabetical, I'd probably file this next to Odyssey.






                    Got these from Rob's last Friday. Minted up on Sabs' first - the one-two punch of 'Behind The Wall Of Sleep' and 'N.I.B' never fails to feel utterly staggering. Buzz Clifford was unpriced and Rob let me have it for pretty cheap I think - he was underwhelmed by Buzz's former sins with 'Babysitting Boogie' and dismissed this, but 'Hawg Frog' is totally ace.


                    To those who've sent me stuff this week, I haven't left you out of this post, I'm saving your stuff to review next time.

                      Was that the Oxfam in Chorlton? I'm pretty sure I clocked it in the window when driving past a while back but never bothered to go back to see how much it was
                      ...if in doubt consult your dealer.

                      • New from my local shop

                        • Nope in Posh Knutsford, it may well have been moved around though they do seem to get new stock in every six months or so when I go which isn't that often as I'm about 15 miles away and it rarely yields much.

                          The Cancer research shop has a box of crap records with stickers on them saying things like '14.99 on ebay', '19.99 on amazon' they were still there the other day when I went, still unsold.

                          Age Concern is OK when they get stuff in as they usually put it out for 50p but the turnaround is crap.

                          • One of the record shops here are fairly meticulous with condition, resulting in them binning just about anything iffy in the 10-15Kr boxes (around £1).
                            They can't be bothered to squeeze some more out of records that have a few scuffs/lines that may or may not affect play. Or just clean them.
                            If you are lucky and arrive when it's refreshed, you can do well.
                            I thought I recognized this one from VG+



                            Opener 3D Mona Lisa is really good, in other parts it is a bit meh, but all in all a super find. Sleeve is coming apart but the record cleaned up nicely.
                            From the same crate I picked up a few other common ones for a friend, as well as a 1973 Swedish press of Eno - Here come the warm jets in pristine sleeve and a record that just needed cleaning!

                            • One of my local shops does that too and he'll also put in odd modern classical he knows he'll have problems moving on. 3 for a quid, I never check them which has resulted in the odd warped or scratched beyond repair record coming home but not done too bad on the whole. Its the way to do it, he knows what shifts and what doesn't so everyone's happy.

                                Just picked that up original, clean and cheap. It's important to dig out the ancient soul records sometimes.
