    Not listened yet mate his name is 'Narvel Felts' and it looks like a country record on Cinnamon Records, the cover has seen better days. I was listening to Jazz on 3 the other night which then switched over to Opera for the night so I switched over to Classic FM and they played Sate one of his famous pieces which I'm sure is on this record so that's the reason for the budget classical but yep your'e right Stoneham is a stinker from memory, medley ridden but I'm a completest with STS still now... I never pay for any records from the market dude he just lets me take what I want and I drop him off a pile for nothing once in a while. His priced section is worse nothing worth having and I rarely look because he never seems to update it!

    Need to sort out my Satie LPs but I have that one and mine has one of those Penguin or Gramophone stickers recommending it, so probably not a bad recording to keep of some of his most famous stuff if you don't already have them.
    That Supraphon sleeve is just a generic one, seems like the Czech market often just got these generic sleeves, with the overseas buyers getting the fancier ones produced for Export. There are some early (late 50s/early 60s) folk records on Supraphon that are disappointing, too orchestral.

    What's Narvel (?) Felts like? Is that a Dobie Gray cover?

      Aghhh cant edit meant to add this is the Narvel: https://www.discogs.com/Narvel-Felts...elease/5714603

      I like that Supraphon cover I've got ideas to use it as an Xmas Swap CD Sleeve background if only to for the colour it will add!

          Some doormat finds:

          All shrink wrapped but not brand new if you know what I mean.

          Peter J Smyth - Black Smoke Solo Acoustic thing from Mugstar guitar guy. Not bad I prefer the picked tunes than when he's strumming away. I like the minimal use of electronics backing some of the tracks.

          Adrian Corker - Raise Village Green contemporary classical ambient. I did a deal on ebay with a guy and bought 3.

          Snow Palms - Intervals Another Village Green this time from Discogs got cheap as had a bent cover but was unopened and is fine. Percussive, ambient loveliness glocks, xylophones, marimbas etc. The only one I've listened to so far the ghost of Terry Riley looms large.

          Angele David-Guillou Part of my deal and probably the earliest of the bunch, 2013 I think. The sound samples I listened to sounded beautiful.

          Chris Morphitis - Where to Go The bits I checked out on this sounded wonderfully dreamy then I read a terrible review on 'Pitchfork' if I remember right which gave me more reason to buy it. Become quite obsessed with Village Green they don't have a huge LP discography so shouldn't be difficult to pick them all up. Had to stop myself rinsing the 'Keith Keniff - Branches' album I bought, proper ambient music.

            I felt that I had to report back that I've just unearthed a copy of Vol 5 in Norrie Paramor's "Radio 2 Top Tunes" series - I thought Vol 4 was the end of the road - this time, it's 1979 and the title is "Thank You For The Music".



            It's got some mildly beaty bits - a version of 'Copacabana' with breakz, 'I Will Survive' with flanged guitars, and no less than two Abba numbers - 'Does Your Mother Know?' and the titular 'Thank You For The Music' - and plenty of smooth sax to ease the way through. It's all done in the best possible taste.

            To calm down inbetween the more raucuous pieces, we also have Bright Eyes, Cavatina, Annie's Song, The Theme From Penmarric and Music Box Dancer (the theme from 'Around With Aliss').

            If you've enjoyed the other 4 volumes, this one is a worthy addition.

              ^ impressive dedication to the Easy cause there on the Norrie Paramor

              went to the Victoria fair today, not been to a big fair for ages, and forgot how gruelling they can be, quite a few rude people pushing to get to boxes (hope none of you lot). Mostly bought stuff from the bargain bins.


              bargain binnery:
              The Chi-Lites - (For God's Sake) Give More Power To The People
              Lou Rawls - Soulin'
              Labi Siffre - Crying Laughing Loving Lying - nice mint copy for 3 quid
              Gladys Knight & The Pips - Neither One Of Us - nice US copy, got their great cover of "Who Is He And What Is He To You" on: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=am5qyEBy1YY



              more bargain binnery:
              Hugo Montenegro - Rocket Man - now wondering if I had this before and purged it? Don't often see his LPs anyway
              Ron Steele - Chicago Guitar - easy listening on Ovation. Only had a quick needle drop but when I hit the synths on the 2nd track it went straight into the "buy" pile
              Larry Page - Executive Suite - never seem to see his stuff around much either, other than the sampler and that Contour one
              Claude Civelli - La flûte à bec de - funky recorder, breakz https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qE6M2Y8Q5bk
              The Singers Unlimited with Pat Williams Orchestra - Feeling Free - not sure if a keeper, but quite odd!
              Sandy Nelson - Drums a Go-Go



              Tom Scott & The LA Express
              Babe Ruth - Amar Caballero - their 2nd album
              Maddy Prior & Tim Hart - Summer Solstice - original on B&C
              Jake Thackeray - The Last Will and Testament of - board favourite, my first of his

              also 7 nice mint-looking (fingers crossed) interesting classical Supraphons

              and a spare 'Bones Galore (the original issue, not the Circle Of Sound one) if anyone needs it?

                didn't even bother looking at the 45s...

                (Just remembered I did purge that Hugo Montenegro about 10 years back, ooops)

                  You'll either hate Jake or fall in love with his strange whimsical ways, great record and probably the one I play the most of his.

                      had my portable so gave it a spin first, plus a few youtube clips have been posted here. Jury's still out, but there's definitely an unusual charm there.

                      playing the Ron Steele now and it's great, would definitely recommend it

                        Just had the not unusual experience of stumbling across a huge stack of vinyl in a junkshop and digging out some treasures only to be told the owner's not around, they haven't been priced and he'll be back in on Monday. I thought "sod you then". Especially when I saw a Bob Marley LP with a £40 tag in the window.

                        Still I'm not unwilling to share the wealth. If anyone is after any Julie Driscoll/Brian Auger polydor stuff, the Enter The Dragon ST and the Kung Fu ST, a few jazz lps and some other bits - probably worth a quid each of anyones money, then it might be worth popping to the junk shop in Letchworth Garden City to see what the owner decides to price them at. Don't bother with the charity shops though, only a Les Baxter on WRC to be found, and I had it.

                            Was going to go hence my asking in another thread if anyone else was going but couldn't make it as the wife was ill and I had to do some stone masonry
                            on the drive to keep her happy.

                            That's not a euphemism for anything by the way.....

                              The Singers Unlimited is good for " Feeling Free with Patrick B". Mildly funky. Too bland the rest? Must resistencia.
