    Wasn't sure if you had the Jay Jays or not Lee. Would have picked one up, definitely at "the right price"! Doh!
    The Yellow Hand lp is on German Capitol. It's a bit controversial as more than half the tunes are written by Stephen Stills or Neil Young. Apparently they were unreleased Buffalo Springfield songs, which someone, somehow got hold of. Definitely one for fans of that whole extended CSNY group of artists sound. I like it.
    With the 45s,obviously Shocking Blue is the better Swedish press.
    You might want to check the flip of The Baroques, tune called Dream maker, also a surpisingly good Tee Set flip, Colours of the rainbow. The Clee's Five 45 is a cracker, a side reminds me of J. C. Heavy a bit. That might be spare too.


    Gary O'Shannon is a double (a side is pants, b side is brill'), as is Rob Hoeke with Margio on it, a complete stomper. Got another Jay Jays 45 with I keep Tryin' on it, I'm guessing you have that.
    Doubled up on a few more Dutch '60s 45s not shown. Will PM you.

      Yeah, what's with Swedish SB presses turning up in NL while Dutch presses turn up here?

        I can understand why the Swedish press would turn up in NL, it blows the others out of the water. Maybe the Swedes preferred the SB-light version? Only kidding CD. There definitely were other, harder edged versions in Sweden (but why?), as in The Red Squares 45. Any other notable examples?

          Great stuff Paul. I'll pm you too.

          Aren't there some Swedish only Downliners Sect 45s that are pretty wild?

I've also left a minty 25p Woolworths price sticker on my copy of 'Illustrated London Noise'. Beyond that it's zero tolerance.
              Sounds like a manifesto!

                Stickers on the actual records are a bug bear! One of the worst culprits being Flashback in London who insist on putting a walloping great sticker right across the label of a 45 that has been (very often) pristine for nigh on 50 years! FFS! Don't they like the stuff they sell? Sort it out chaps

                  I found a fair few records this week including a bunch of 45s from my pal John's 50p boxes including a mint Wayne Fontana - waiting for a break in the clouds, a Dandelion EP with the way they where - King dick II on it and Slade - know who you are and about 20 other things but I didn't take a pic of them.

                  I did take a pic of this:



                  A long time want. Great to get the original Irish press complete with company bag. Killer freakbeat version of the tune made famous by Billy Davis and the exciters.

                  I was early for a train this morning so killed literally 10 minutes at the Carboot. Frustratingly there were loads of records there. Happily I did manage to grab this



                  The lady had a box of interesting looking disco 12s but my knowledge of the genre is slim but I knew this one is a 'biggie'. I walked away and called fellow Mudder Russ as he's a disco dude. Annoying he arrived to see his disco digging nemesis waking off with the box and its contents. On reflection a move I should have made - ah well

                  A trawl around the charities and a record shop yesterday



                  Chuffed to mint up on the Manfred Mann - it wasn't a quid but was well under going rate. Old copy already gone to a good home too.
                  The hip hop was a spot of boutique digging for Russ.
                  The Curtis Knight and the Bob Kubhan were from a loca shop for a reasonable price. Yet to digest properly
                  Those Chappell 45 sleeve were the other digging dissapointment of the weekend - heart fluttered when I spotted the sleeve immediately followed by a sigh when I realised every single one of the 10 or so sleeves contained bog standard charity shop 45s. Bah. Wonder what the original contents were?

                    Never knew 'Eamonn Andrews' had studios or what part he played in the 60's Irish music scene. Learn something new everyday here.

                      Thank you. Ruined labels on the 45s I've bought from there.

                        Eamonn Andrews Studios! I'd never heard that either. Excellent.

                        Here's some bits - I took some stuff down the tip on friday, and noticed a pile of records left on a bin that somebody had obviously decided to not blindly chuck over the side. Had a quick look, and as there were a few interesting looking pic covers so I grabbed the lot and nipped back to my car. About 20 lps and 30 45's, German and some Russian, a right old mix. Had an enjoyable evening digging through a lot of shlager 45's, German K-Tel lp's & Souvenir of Berlin records, but a few nice bits in there, and all the records are pristine, even if covers aren't.



                        My Sweet Lord looks like a German Stereo Gold Award type cash-in, but does have some original material from some great made-up in the studio names - Corporal Gander's Fire Dog Brigade & Electric Food doing some nice psych rock. The middle LP is a souvenir of a trip to Russia, with many fine folk songs. Quite a gatefold package. Pops In Baroque is quite a tight piano trio jazzing up some pop hits Baroque style. Works quite well.



                        Culled from amongst the numerous Udo Jurgens 45's are a Roxy & Sweet picture sleeve, some great Odeon sleeve design for Keith West (tune) and The Scaffold (hmmm), and best of the bunch is 'Cut My Hair' by The Lords, and the Peter Thomas Sound Orchester's great space age pop 45.



                        As all local boots were called off this morning, thought I'd pop into a charity shop on my afternoons wanders, with me son in tow. Took a little train ride out of Brighton, and first shop threw up a nice selection of LP's, and a great reggae 12. Further shop investigations revealed a comp of early Prince (I've got the Numero 94 East 45, and it's great) and random gospel LP, and a Julie Felix LP purchased mainly for the Renbourn connection. So made up for the lack of booter action.



                        Here's the 12 - nice female vocal on a Mad Professor production. Good dub side.

                          No "Peace Now" in the Udo Jurgens then?

                          What a touch on The Movement 45 Lee. Savage guitars, bet that's getting an airing at the next Mud.

                            No need to fret. Those sleeves more than likely housed pop/chart 45s purchased from Chappell's music store on Bond Street in the 70s. I remember rummaging through their ex-chart boxes and seeing those sleeves on 45s by The Osmonds etc.

                              on that Julie Felix is quite a nice version of Geordie, backed by Martin Carthy and Dave Swarbrick:




                              Recent Discogs buy:

                              Elizabeth Waldo - Maracatú



                              lovely bit of exotica, full album on that youtube link. she made several South/Central American inspired albums.

                                Dr Pablo & The Dub Syndicate - North Of The River Thames. Great album. Took me a couple of minutes to register the title is obviously a play on East Of The River Nile by the mighty Augustus.

                                Singers & Players - Revenge Of The Underdog. Yet to play.

                                Very happy with these two On-Us at the local second hand shop today. Covers are a bit wrecked but the records themselves are an easy VG+.

                                Would have soundtracked my just completed fishing/drinking weekend in Glastonbury very nicely.
                                BTW Tor Records in Glasto is no more, when did that happen? I missed my annual fishing weekend jaunt last year so it's two years since I've been there.
