    I helped a friend clear out the flat of her late father, who was a serious hoarder. Three rooms filled with mainly books and magazines, knick-knacks and also some records.
    She made a first culling and took home what she thought looked interesting, which I guess is classic rock. I will have a look at those eventually.
    Now it was all about getting rid of the rest. She started a clearance sale on Saturday, when I was away, so I thought by Sunday there would be little left.
    To my amazement noone had even looked at the records. I had a quick browse through and didn't see anything obviously megarare so I got the lot against helping clear out some stuff. I made a promise to share earnings if it turned out something could earn a bit. I don't think anything will.
    It's a very eclectic mix. I made a first sort and weeded out about two thirds, about two crates, that will go straight to a charity shop. Budget classical, cheap comps, Gary Lewis & The Playboys, that sort of thing.
    Next step will take some time, you'll probably see some here in the weeks to come.

      Already a 'Blue Note' of top quality and 'Kool and the Gangs' finest hour. Nice one CD hope there is more of the same, although I see a stray 'Perry Como' so I get what you mean about hoarding.

        Actually, the McCoy Tyner - Extension is the most "solid" of the lot, and it's a later 70s pressing, but it's in amazing condition and shrink still on. This was actually not with the rest of the records. It was in a shelf unit jampacked with National Geographic magazines. Figures, as the sleeve is designed to look like a NG magazine.

          Absolutely wonderful music, at first glance I thought 'Deutsche Gramophone', then 'National Geographic'.

            Sarathy Korwar's album is out now on Ninja Tune, and it's lovely. blend of indian percussion and eastern jazz, very stretched out and gorgeous. Produced by Nick (Emanative) Woodmansey and mentored as past of the Steve Reid Foundation by Nick, Keiran Hebden and Gilles Peterson.

            "The extraordinary debut album from percussionist, drummer and producer Sarathy Korwar – Day To Day – fuses traditional folk music of the Sidi community in India (combining East African, Sufi and Indian influences) with jazz and electronics. It’s a collaborative release by Ninja Tune with The Steve Reid Foundation – a charitable trust established by Brownswood / Gilles Peterson with the dual objective of helping musicians in crisis and also supporting emerging talent...."

            Album launch party Thursday this week at Total Refreshment Centre.

            lovely production too, thick vinyl, lovely gatefold sleeved artwork and booklet.

              @candiman nice couple of On-U finds there. Never got round to upgrading my near 30 year old cassette copy of "... Thames", sad to say.

                Sounds up my street Alan and a diversion from recent NT stuff although I've not followed them quite so much in a while. Cheers for the tip.

                Yep I'm jealous of that Dub Syndicate too even with its ripped sleeve, great music.

                  First bunch of the clearance lot. My friend's father seems to have been an erratic record buyer, most have a sale price sticker on them. They do verge towards jazz/funk though.

                  Charles Wright - Doing What Comes Naturally is actually quite enjoyable. Maybe a bit stretched as a double. One of the songs was even cat-bothering, as she raised her head towards the speaker with a sour face as the guitar was twang-grinding. I think it's a keeper.
                  The Collage is one of those soft-psych records I've seen in shops, enticing sleeve, but usually priced a bit above punt level. And I'm glad I didn't fell, cos in my mind it's a one tracker, My Mind's At Ease being the track.
                  Disco Brakes had me worrying. I'm not into breaks and I'm probably the least funkiest man on earth. But The J.B.s Blow Your Head is actually headblowing.
                  Chocolate Milk, more funk and actually not bad. But not a keeper for me.
                  Final two, Michel Berger and Patrick Cowley are so not for me, straight to the outbox.

                    The sadly as yet unrecorded follow up was to have been The Bridge on the River Wye

                      Did you see my comedy haul posted here recently, it included The Bridge On The River Wye - by Milligan/Cook/Sellers/Miller

                        Chocolate Milk are my cup of tea (that's confusing!) but even if they weren't the cover would make it a keeper for me

                          Yes got a buzz when I found these. Nothing else remotely like them in the box, which always gets me wondering what I might have missed. But mustn't be greedy.

                            Was going to wait on the four records I ordered at the weekend to come in the post but seems its all over the place these days, the post that is. Anyway this has sat in the charity warehouse for a while and has a few hairlines which has put me off but seems they were just that and it cleaned it up easily, a solid VG+. Solid album too obviously his most famous if I remember right or highest charting at least. A staple in any collection I reckon.



                            Apologies for the terrible editing of this vid :

                              in a ruthless Waxidermy style, I was considering purging my Richie Havens LPs actually... (other than the Going Back To My Roots 12")

                                I've always had a soft spot for him since wondering 'Who is that guy with the massive thumb on the Woodstock film' then met a guy on the internet who was obsessed with him and sent me a CD of a lot of his stuff. If I see some I'll buy it but I don't come across him in the wild as much as I'd think I would or something else I haven't heard will catch my eye.

                                As I posted that previous find the postman came at half past five with these, reissues but were dirt cheap:

                                Eugene McDaniels - Outlaw Classic



                                Eddie Fisher and the Next One Hundred Years Never heard and thought you tube samples sounded kind of cool.



                                The Meters - Struttin' Rhino reissue to make up the numbers on a buy 2 get one free offer.
