    First LP has been repressed a few times and they've even repressed the GPS single as well I think.

    the Vampyr soundtrack is good and not repressed (yet)

    Didn't buy that second LP, thought it just sounded too similar to the rest and over-polished maybe, but only checked a couple of soundclips

    They've recently repressed their first LP and EP too (D&V). Both of which are just as great.

    You Fiend! Only Joking I had a good listen today and the Broadcast vibe hit me straight away, not left the deck which means it will be the next thing on too. Its all relative as I say, the seller even sent it signed for postage he'd have well out of pocket if you hadn't bid me up! Still a good price for a great record which I was expecting to be outbid on to be honest.

    My copy of Ring My Bell cost three times Bongolia's and I thought I got it at a decent price. I also dig their What About Me / I'd Rather Go Blind 12", if you like their sound. I've been hoping to chance upon the other 12"s in the wild but it's not happened so far, the cover of Be Thankful seems to be in demand.

They had forgotten to change the 7 inch postage price too. Still only a tenner which is a good price for a Mint copy and it landed yesterday.

    There's a few other nice soulful tracks on the King & City / Sound City labels like this "Be Thankful..." cover:

    Just about scraped in the august finds, technically didn't become my possession until this morning, but one of the verygoodplussers must have albums

    Was advertised as near mint, the cover is and is still in cellophane but the record as tradition goes is VG+

    I really like the laid back version of blueberry hill on that Bert circle of sound....

    thanks, I'll give Bert another spin, only gave it a quick needle drop and it didn't sound promising.

    re: Zither - Is Gemini a cool label? - besides some interesting 45s and The Excursion "Night Train" isn't the rest is just junk like those pervy sleeved hammond medleys?

    I think it's one of the final tracks on one of the sides from memory on the Bert. Anyway here I my doormat finds as the chazza's are still bare although I did find a reissue of Stan Tracy - Under Milk Wood' on CD today although not sure how legit it is they got his surname spelling wrong.

    [IMG][/IMG]

    So from top to bottom, top to bottom, should have thought how I laid them out really:

    Jacco Gardner - Hypnophobia Having listened to the digital version of this for a while now I was unsure but it slowly earwormed its way in so took advantage of 10% off at Juno over the Bank Holiday.

    Satisfaction - Satisfaction Came across this on a well known auction site and it was unknown to me so had bit of a listen online and that Jazzy Brass Rock hit straight away so put a sly bid in not expecting to get it but did as no one else was interested it seems.

    Satisfaction - Three Ages of Man This is why I laid the lp's out wrong! After discovering I liked the sound of Satisfaction I discovered Acid Jazz had put out an unreleased album by them and it was silly cheap on Juno so it joined Jacco in my basket.

    KPM - Cause for Concern From the same seller as 'Satisfaction' thought I might as well take advantage of the postage so put a bid on this albeit some fiend upped me by a quid in the last second but they lost out or I lost out, its all relative. I should add that this is a 1977 split 'Nick Ingram' and 'Tony Kinsey' album riffing on the well worn library theme of global environmental change. All quite orchestral and pastoral but livens up with some synth mixed in on side 2 actually the flip is pretty great, very atmospheric and avant in places, phew!

    Ask Col. Sheridan/Price, Iron Maiden and Ghost were amongst the first few releases so, when they were good, they were really good.
