  • August 2016 finds

    It's really too hot to be outside in Japan at the moment, so I regretted going to a street market, though at least it was in the shade.

    Early morning was OK. Little flea market. Arrived 6:30, left at 8:00.

    This strange LP turned up with some instructions for setting up your quad system plus a few songs on side 1, but on side 2 Enoch Light & the Light Brigade doing covers of Theme from Shaft, Proud Mary, The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down, Marrakesh Express, California Dreamin' and the Doors' Touch Me. That last one has probably made Jimbo turn in his grave.



    Various - OTTO Quadsonic Stereo Record 1972

    Then later in the day at the street market:



    The Milcho Leviev Quartet - Blues For The Fisherman (Mole Jazz - MOLE 1). Not sure about this one yet, but it was cheap, so I took a leap.



    Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers - Live In Stockholm 1959. Never seen this one before but I love Art Blakey.

    Earlier in the week a cheap copy of this turned up:



    Ella At Duke's Place 1965. Didn't know this one but the reviews seemed promising. As always, Ella's voice is incredible. I don't know the songs well yet.

    Not been on a dig as such but passed a shop and couldn't resist this for a quid if only for the authentic conga on the front... Oh has one of those horrible plastic inners Ben was so peeved about but I think in this case it has probably saved the record from getting mould on it. Despite not being able to get the bloody thing back in its sleeve! :

          Found this 45 in a 25p bin today, I couldn't find anything about it online but as Argos came into being circa '73
          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.

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

              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.

                Following up the finds from last month, I ripped the strange private press I found at the music fair.
                I give you... Amazingers. Zero info on the interweb, or at least what I can find.
                Recorded in a bedroom and straight to vinyl?

                  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)

                      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.

                        Aha.

                        Changed to Invesible Man.

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

                          Sure, go ahead, no credit needed. It's actually Invesible Man on sleeve and Invisible Man on label

                              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
