  • Afrodyssey Orchestra is a greek band

    Everything in Greece is arpa kolla

    Comment


    • Quite a fruitful few days, all in all. Combination of a couple of car boots and a very peaceful and undisturbed rifle through one of the local charity shop's replenished vinyl shelves have yielded this bundle:



      Steeleye Span - Now We Are Six - always partial to a bit of folk rock, particularly when it's 49p
      Michel Sardou - know nothing about him but the cover looked promising. Will let you know what it's like.
      Couple of Studio 2s: Total Sound and Climax: special sampler - having done my VG+ homework thought I'd better have a listen and see what the fuss is about. Not really a genre I'm particularly into but I'm open minded and like a nice break as much as the next man. Standouts on these two?



      The Music of Mexico - like a bit of Latin so willing to give this a go, provided it doesn't go all panpipey on me
      Specials - needs no introduction. Cover has damage but the vinyl is fine and to good to miss at £1
      Leonid Kogan plays Tchaikovsky - I know precious little about classical stuff but have memorised a few names to watch out for and Kogan was one
      Ibert, Glazounov, Villa-Lobos - was just taken by the idea of a concerto for sax and string orchestra, plus a piece for quintet featuring flute and bassoon. No idea if I'll like it. But I do like the idea of Nonesuch Records. US import.



      Finally, on safer ground with these ....
      Peddlers - picked it up because it was 50p and couldn't remember if I had it. Sadly it's pretty crackly so has gone on the out pile.
      Hendrix Smash Hits - too good to miss at £1 but vinyl is VG at best so may go out in a bulk lot at my local auction
      Jefferson Airplane - Volunteers - a classic psych rock album I've somehow failed to hear or own up to now, so snapped it up for a quid. Cover needed a bit of TLC but the vinyl's generally fine. Loving the guitar work.
      Joe Jackson - One More Time - hadn't seen this around much and I was a great fan of Joe Jackson back in the day so glad to grab it at 50p. White vinyl and plays fine. On the down side, cover is damaged and the button badge is missing ... but I have plans to track one down.

      Also at the charity shop grabbed a decent jukebox copy of Them's Gloria/Baby Please Don't Go on Decca, and Poison Ivy by The Paramounts. Only pity was I didn't notice Poison Ivy had a bite out of the vinyl. Might make a nice coaster, maybe

      • Brings a smile to my face when I read people are picking up things like Volunteers for the 1st time and digging it. It's a great lp Mactheruss ,very different to the 2nd, and you are right, Jorma is right on it. See how long it takes for you to fall in love with Wooden Ships......gonna have to go and play it myself now.
        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

        • Never even seen a copy of Volunteers. I must go to more record shops. Repeat, I must go to more record shops. Repeat, I must go to more record shops ...

              • Every year I go to the south of France and I usually have a bit of luck at the French car boot equivalents. This year was trundling along nicely with the first few producing these for a few Euros:



                And then on Sunday an early visit to the local car boot allowed me to upgrade on the Lindberg LP (which has a couple of decent tracks IIRC) and take a chance on the Dave Morgan. No turntable here but I don't have particularly high hopes.



                Onwards to what's often a fruitful car boot 20 mins away. Not much happening as I'd had a flick through the dealers' stalls the week before. I'd grabbed a nice James Brown double LP comp then but had generally been a bit disappointed with the return for a couple of hours of effort.

                I was even more disappointed on Sunday as I'd found nothing at all until I approached the last few stalls but then I spotted two boxes of records that definitely hadn't been there the week before.

                The King Crimson cover's a bit wavy but the vinyl's clean. The Pop Tops was a bit of a mistake as it's not 'What a place to live in'. I've got the Liquid Smoke LP so why not have the 45 too at a Euro.



                And then these two I've already got the Mahmoud Ahmed. It's a mid 80s comp with some of his best stuff.

                Les Mogol was a lovely surprise to find. I've had a brief listen on Youtube today. Well chuffed!

                • Nice stuff, been after that Les Mogol for a while now. Was in a record shop a few years back and found nothing I wanted in the whole place - but the guy was listening to that but didn't want to sell it. It had a few different issues, and a more recent reissue (boot?)

                    Spoiler alert: They are usually hidden in the sideburns. If there is a number next to the signature that indicates the number of hidden Ninas but its at least one usually.

                      • Recent round up of the last 6 weeks ish. All chazzas, or booties.

                        Big Uns


                        Cockshut 74. Cockshut hill school, Birmingham. Can you imagine the names these girls would have been called. Where i come rom the "h" would of been replaced with a "l". Lovely b/w stencil type cover. Did have some hope for this but just a couple of folk type tracks that are not my thing. £1- chazza.

                        Beaumont Meets Reflection. Religous lp with one decent ish track "When i look around me" Chazza- 50p, no cover.

                        Zachariah. Sountrack. Seen this mentioned on here but never seen in the wild. Great cover pic. Chazza £1

                        Earfull. Double gatefold lp. Any record with a sheep wearing headphones on the cover which opens into a full size gatefold picture for 50p is coming home with me. Coupla things on here i like, but digging the cover more.

                        Beat Street. Mint. Used to be a bootie regular but seldom seen thesedays. Bootie £1

                        Harry Stoneham and Johnny Eyden "Two fellas to follow" Classic vg+ gear. This was off a flipper at the bootie in his £2 box. He had the obligatory recently deceased popstars pile on display, Bowie at the front.The obligatory Elvis pile. He had £2 crates and £1 crates. In true vg+ style i knew im only meant to pay no more than a quid for the classics. I pulled it out and he said iv no idea what that is. "It looks likes easy listening mate, i,ll take a chance for a quid" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2v5-CvKy59w

                        Little Uns

                        Masacara "Maargarita" Fun pop synth. Catchy but a bit annoying in places.
                        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qH5FNyfYK8A Chazza 20p

                        Peret Italian ep. Judging by his shirt collar and jumper on the cover i was thinking its a no hoper. Was happy to take a chance as 20p and there,s 4 tracks. Was pleasantly surprised to find a mambo with a break. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ucmZKiBH6Q

                        Brendon ""How can you mend a broken heart" Guess this is the same white guy how did the crap version of gimme some. Cover of the classic tune, but was shocked to find they added weird moog noises Chazza 50p

                        Wulomei "Gyae nsa nom" c/w "Akrowa. Ghana. I wasn,t holding out much hope on this, but turned to be decent sunday listening tune.
                        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ksb2pEuMLNo https://www.discogs.com/sell/release/4038434?ev=rb Bootie 50p

                        MC Shan "I pioneered this" usa cold chillin, pic cover. Always nice to cop classic label usa rap 45s in the wild but it doesnt happen often enough.

                        Tina Harvey "Nowhere to run" Had given up hope on ever finding this in the wild. Bootie £1

                        The bovver boys "Aggro" on Torpedo. Bank holiday monday car boot. This and a lovely psychadelic floral pattern lp box were copped for £2.50. Never seen the record before and didnt realize how much it was worth till i got home :-) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xeN2NJlj8Ok

                        Compass "Thats enough for me" Out of a flippers northern soul re issues box. No cover, as i picked it up, the voice came "Thats a re issue mate but you can have it for a quid" Judging it not to be a re issue i took a chance and was plasantly surprised. Psychadelic, soul typa thing. Search leads back to Peter Beaver playing it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eIMLsjN4BEM

                        Real World 45s
                        Bollywood freaks "Dont stop till you get to bollywood. Thanks to HEAD GARDNER for making me aware of this. Cover of MJ sung in hindu. £6
                        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j8diwaBKeo4

                        Blood Sisters "Ring my bell" Given up on finding this in the wild. Great cover of Anita Ward. £10 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V4epRpnMakU

                        Tony Joe White "Tony Joe" LP. Classic vg+ gear. Given up on finding this in the wild too, so £15 seemed a fair price and cheaper than the re issue. Obviously you got "Stud spider" but if you get into his voice you got "Hard to handle" with nice break 3/4 through.
                        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hb63SBLdYpU
