    discussion on Waxidermy about old Herbie at the moment. I think this one takes me up to 17 - who is the VG+er with 20+?


    and getting close to that on Munrow - 14 I think although that includes a couple of box sets and also the Shirley Collins, Young Tradition, and Roundtable LPs he's on.

    the recorder one with Neville Marriner playing Telemann and Handel is very nice, picked that up fairly recently

    Nice haul Bongo particularly like the percussive space age pop find. I found that Hypnotist record last year not sure whether I used it on my XMAS mix or its gone on to some tuneage I've made then again I could be confusing it with another 'Stop Smoking' albeit 7 inch record I found. Apart from the odd spin of 'Magic Fountains' in what are probably bouts of mental instability I don't think there is one good Manuel record but I am happy to be proved wrong!

    That Munrow record is class and really educational the amount of work he did on this sort of thing getting these old instruments made for him (not to mention playing them all to a high standard.) and researching is astonishing. His Bipolar was both his genius and devil, very sad end and reminded me that record in particular introduced me to him, fascinating man full of joy and enthusiasm for his work which comes across in everything he did.

    Monster tat haul today from some local charity shops I hadn't been to for a while, mostly 50p each, probably a good thing that most places charge more than that.



    Arthur Fiedler/Boston Pops - Beatles - don't often see his records around, and he was quite respected as a conductor. The arrangements sounded like they might bea bit orchestral and not enough pop though from a quick needle drop
    Richard Schory - Re Percussion - Saga UK issue. I've got that later Dick Schory LP with "Jungle Root" on, this one is an early Command-style percussion style affair
    Mancini comp - nothing very exciting bar Peter Gunn, but I liked the sleeve and hadn't seen it before
    James Last - Rock Me Gently - hadn't seen this either. All Canadian composers. Mid 70s, and funkyish in parts. Even got a break
    James Last - In Russia - enjoyed Stanley Black's "Russia" on Phase 4, was interested in hearing what the hairy Herr would do with Sabre Dance etc
    Manuel - Carnival - didn't especially want this, and think I had this years ago, but the guy forgot my change and couldn't open the till until the next customer so suggested I took another


    Bonnie Koloc - spare
    Silver Mount Zion - Horses In the Sky - bit surprised to see this (nothing else new in the shop). I liked their first two albums, more so that GY!BE, but never bought later ones like this, they'd started to look even more pretentious. Not played yet’”
    Family of Mann - First Light - had this years ago but sold it. Sounds funkier than I remembered
    Seventh Wave - Things To Come - prog synth duo from 1974
    Lesley Rae Dowling - no country listed, but turns out it's South African. Rock from 1981, her voice reminds me of someone. Kate Bush?
    Man Jumping - Aerotropics (remix) / In the Jungle (remix) - sleeveless 12", nothing else remotely similar in the other ~500 records in the shop. 80s avant garde funk thing


    Songs of the Auvergne - my mum had this or something similar, used to hate it as a child, thought i've give it a go...”
    Haydn - Cello Concertos’
    Rachmaniov 1/2 - Ashkenazy/Previn - got a box set of Anievas, but it's a bit lacking, so looking out for better replacements
    The Mediaeval Sound - another David Munrow
    Euskal Kantu Zaharrak - folky basque compilation
    Scott Joplin 1 + 2 every home should have them. Got these already but they looked mint, sleeves and all.


    Shakespeare - The Tempest 3LP Argo box set
    Open University - The Spoken Word poetry readings, probably dull but had a couple of anglo saxon poems about the Battle of Maldon
    Edwin Heath sample fodder, much better than the other Lose Weight record I have, where the unamed guy ("a top doctor") has the most boring voice
    Spanish - not sure i'd seen anything on Davjon besides Hymn's a Swingin'?


    Fisherfolk - hoping for some folky sounds, the blue sleeved one sounds like it might be all choir, but the other has some folkier sounds
    Billy Graham - probably a mistake but I liked the sleeve, have that other Billy Graham record with Tedd Smith "Smash and Grab World" on it, music on here is less exciting
    Adventures of Gus - kiddie religious record, stories with some music. Narrator has odd voice

    and finally

    Captain Noah and his funky break - had this years ago but gave it to someone back at a Salmon and Compass Brillo. There were a load of Kings Singers records there, sadly not the one with Life On Mars on

    Is it OK if I add your pic of the picture sleeve?

    (with credit of course)
    Sure, go ahead, no credit needed. It's actually Invesible Man on sleeve and Invisible Man on label

    Really like the 'Invisible Man' track

    It's actually Invesible Man on the sleeve. Running out of I's on the Letraset sheet?
    And it's Lawrence - Wagner on the B-side credits as well, dontcha know. Lennon - McCartney, Jagger - Richards and Lawrence - Wagner...

    Still, it was printed at AB IrKå-Tryck. They printed a lot of Swedish picture sleeves in the 60's.

    I give you... Amazingers. Zero info on the interweb, or at least what I can find.
    Recorded in a bedroom and straight to vinyl?

    with the death of 'Green Shield Stamps' (I can't be the only one here who remembers them!) I'd date this somewhere
    around the mid 70's. It's got around 5 different jingles and songs on it, the best of which is this one
    At a guess I'd say it was used as a promo maybe at some trade fair or other, I can't imagine them ever selling it.
    It's from October/November 1973 if the Lyntone pressing number is accurate (LYN 2673 was released in October and LYN 2705 in November so somewhere in between)

    Not finds as such one from discogs and a couple from a website summer sale:

    Boom Bip and Dose One - Circle Discogs purchase cheap copy. I seem to be picking bits of anticon stuff here and there some I have already on CD others not. Some of their releases never got a vinyl issue. Dose One did an album in 2005 called 'Ha' gutted to find it was CD only. Anyway makes my head hurt to think this was recorded in 1999. I remember hearing it and thinking it's like the 'Beastie Boys' crossed with 'Faust'.





    Vagon Brei - The Secret of Swamp Castle Hauntology for those who remember fondly Sega Megadrives, General Midi sounds and all that. Its Pink and comes with a free fridge Magnet, why I have no idea. On 'Mystic and Quantum' who I've juts discovered for this kind of thing.:





    Francis Juno - Platform Romance Same label but slightly darker albeit on white vinyl, soundclips piqued my interest along with the price.

    The Lyntone catalogue number (LYN 2692) would suggest 1973. LYN 2694 is Geordie's Popswop single from July that year.
