          What are the tracks on The Carrolls? Is it the UK group? Was just researching them this afternoon, oddly enough...

            A scattering of albums picked off online, with not a little influence from the 'Post 10 LPs you associate with being a member of VG+' thread (a must-read if not already done so).



            Trax Four - Wingding Party!!! This popped up as a cheap BIN when looking for records from the aforementioned thread. Saw the cover and thought that's got VG+ written all over it. Groovy organ-led instrumentals and very nice it sounds too.
            Jack Hawkins - Everything Is Beautiful. So Treeboy wrote about about Johnny Hawkins - Psychedelic 70s in the 'Post 10...' thread and listed 30-60-20 as a track of note. Sounded interesting so off I went to check it out and realising when I couldn't find it that it's actually Jack Hawkins and the track is 30-60-90 (although I guess the majority of you already knew that). Anyway I saw that a cheaper way to get this album was to buy this release. Said track is bonkers but good, not sure if it's this pressing but I find the album a bit shrill and grating on the ears.
            Martin Denny - Goes Modern. Had a look at the Jack Hawkins seller's other stuff and this was available too. Not really checked in with Denny much before so had a quick listen online and added it to the buy. Pleasantly surprised and it's had a few spins already.
            Martin Denny - A Taste Of India. Of course listening to the other Denny set me off exploring what else might be worth hearing and I came across the track Incense and Peppermints which I thought was great. Unfortunately this album doesn't grab me like the Goes Modern one but keeping it for that track.





            Aldemaro Romero - El Fabuloso Aldemaro Y Su Onda Nueva. Didn't know Aldemaro but came across his name while looking at other things and I've become obsessed with the track Moliendo Cafe. Really nice album with some great vocal interplay. Any other suggestions that sound like this gratefully received.


            The Natural Yogurt Band - Tuck In With...The Sign Of Four track is amazing!
            The Dave Davani Four - Fused! Lovely organ-led jazz/r&b combo. Still bargains to be had online if you have patience.

                Pressed in 1962, didn't hold out much hope as it was in a thick cardboard sleeve with no inner and a paper booklet, looked a bit marked but cleaned up OK and plays fine and quiet pleased it still had the booklet as most on discogs list them without, not a bad find for 50p (box of 92 albums for £46)
                got this itch that i need to scratch about getting a nice vintage turntable (Thorens TD-160) but the 1200 mk2, thats mint & never been raced or rallied is sounding nice at the moment and it would cost me a fortune to get one that is on par with what I have

                  I'd have bought that 'Wingding Party' album, never seen it and it looks suitably groovy to take a punt on, sounds like its worked out too!

                  I just bought a reissue of this on Pan who put out a lot of Norwegian Psyche and Prog. This is catchy mixture of Prog and Southern Rock sung in English:

                  Hole in the Wall - Hole in the Wall As Dale Winton would say 'Bring on the Wall!'

                      Thanks for the info GoGo! I put "Surrender Your Love" on a mix yesterday, so did some googling to find out more. What I found out was that the vocalist is Faith Brown, famous English comedienne and her her brothers. Was somewhat suprised, so interesting to see your sleeve with a group photo. What's the label? I'm guessing 1966?

                      Doh! All the info is on Discogs: https://www.discogs.com/Carrolls-The...elease/2425459

                        Does a damn fine job of it too.

                          • Found a record shop less than a mile from my house. Untapped resource for weird stuff you never generally see out in the racks. Decent prices on some stuff too. Went three days running. Have a whole bag behind the counter for next payday.

                            • Good work on Suite London. One I've never found and I think I have everything else they did. Finding a record shop you didn't know about full of amazing rare records within a mile of your house eh? Sounds like my dreams and my wife's nightmare all at once.

                              I'm going to start my finds threads with two that I didn't buy. I finally spotted Vulture One-tracker extraordinaire Diane Solomon's Take Two this week only to find the fiver in my wallet had disappeared and there was a five pound limit in the shop. I thought about rounding up but I decided it probably wasn't to be and left if for another time. The one that stings is I picked out John Schroeder's "You've made me so very happy" LP in the hospice shop and somehow managed to forget about it between seeing it and reaching the back of the crate. It plagued me all week to the extent I left work early today to see if it was still there and of course it was gone. Please tell me it's a one tracker and that track is Headband which I've got on the Sound Gallery comp. It doesn't have to be true, I just want someone to tell me.

                              Now on to the things I have acquired:

                              This is Stereo is a stereo demonstration LP that I could probably use to set up my hifi properly. Purchased for the promise of some electronic effects which turned out to be a bit disappointing and a single unnamed Mike Vickers track which would be quite groovy on a 7" but seems a bit lost here.
                              Francoise Hardy? Well I could just ogle the sleeve all day who cares about the music. Ok you do. Well it's groovy, beaty francopop and very nice for a pound. I was very confused about this because it seems to be the wrong way round - it turns out that I've got the back half of a gatefold sleeve. Goodness knows where the front has gone. At least I go the the best half (the one with the record in).
                              James Last In South America. It's all about Happy Brasilia for me. Mad funky batucada rhythms from Hansi.
                              I still haven't learnt anything about the Kinsey report yet.


                              A wonderful selection of exuberant Nigerian highlife here. I can't really describe it and youtube links are hard to come by. Very happy with this bunch.


                              I'm belatedly aware that I posted the top hits from Nigeria in last month's thread. It's been a good few months for unearthing West African gold. Another highlife 7" from Roy Chicago and the highlife flavoured trad jazz of Sandy Brown:

                              Bert Jansch is record store day 7" from Sound Control in Reading who are flogging their RSD stuff off cheap(ish)


                              A Rovin' is early sixties folk with songs from across the globe. I picked it up for the song Asikatali, interested in how a group of scotsmen would tackle south african protest songs. The highlight is a solo of an English folk song performed by Shirley Bland which ticks all the wicker man boxes.
                              Bermuda Steel Band Live at Forty Thieves is quite cool for a Steel band LP. Highlight is probably Watermelon Man but it's one of the better ones, Steel band wise.
                              Nina and Frederik is lovely in it's own way. Karl Denver was purchased out of a general interest to see if anything he recorded compared to Wimoweh for bonkersness. It's a good album but the answer to my question appears to be no.

                              • Suite London gets an OOffff from me kind of ties in with the orchestration thread as the recording of that album is just a feast for the ears, hope its in reasonable nick!

                                I got a very old Karl Denver album this year maybe even pre Wimoweh at first listen it sounded like it might have promise, couple of tracks at least so its in the sample box for the end of year swap if it happens.
