    Strap in chaps, bit of a deluge of vinyl. Some online, some freebies, some from real record shops, boot sale...the lot!

    [IMG][/IMG]

    Hair - John McLaren, Sue Kramer & Reddy, The Broadway matadors, The Brooklyn Singers, Hans berka. Having been informed this is the one to get, I got it in one day! Cracking stuff.
    Mike McNaught - Bugs Bunny comes to London
    Zacharias - The sensational sounds of
    Dynastie Crisis - s/t.
    Robert Wyatt - The end of an ear.
    Morton Stevens - Hawaii Five-O. Superb TV soundtrack. Cop a load of this beautiful music.


    101 Strings - Play hits written by The Beatles. And this twangy sitar(?) laden corker.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mhl5sFbNxik

    Children of the night - Dinner with Drac. Ghoulish fun from '76, funky moves with flute and moog scattered around.
    Bang on a drum, songs from play school and play away.
    Ananda Shankar - s/t.
    Taste - s/t. 1st lp. Bought it for the 45 sides (always too pricey for me) which open and close side 1.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cNfKtHvaPEU
    The First Impression - Beat Club. 20p (worth it for the cover alone) booter job. Top Sgt Pepper cover.
    Mikis Theodorakis - Z ost. Café Rock.....
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZRsTsI7GX88
    Peter Ross & Oliver - More of. Haven't had a proper listen yet

    Alexander _ Working my way. Minted up in Glasgow! spare taken.
    John Philips soul & his stone marching band - That Memphis thing / The soul strut. Excellent funky, Hammond splattered 2 sider.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xbdn5AMgCaI
    The Tremeloes - Be mine / Suddenly Winter. Top notch b side. Plenty of backwards effects, '67 style.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tnA4lg0FsP8
    The Fredric - Five o'clock traffic / red pier. Red Pier is a drifting, shimmering beauty. 5 o'clock traffic is an excellent tune, poppy with psych touches, very nice indeed.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XKG6BAVww40
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VWWSlGk1Rqc
    The Bare Facts - Georgiana / Bad part of town. Garage royalty on the flip. Georgiana is great too. Both fuzz driven movers.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W1uybVRd15I
    Thin Lizzy - The Rocker / Here I go again. Great phasing move on The Rocker which lifts this hard rocker a little higher.
    The Seeds - Fallin' off the edge of my mind / Wild blood. 2 non lp tracks, with a little help from Kim Fowley! What a combination. Wild Blood wins it for me. Absolutely filthy guitar riff with Sky sounding a little off kilter, and some big old slabs of fuzz kicking in.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UwtFx5IeeYI
    T.C Atlantic - Faces / Love is just. Can't see me ever getting hold of the Stinging fuzzy og version. This later version gets short shrift in garage circles but on reappraisal, I like it. The sentiment remains the same, and I quite like the laid back, floaty style.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SobqmcuRxds
    The Daily Flash - Jack of Diamonds / Queen Jane approximately. Hell yeah! Big picture clip. '66 stormer.

    Getting fed up now! Lps all visible (and well known) hopefully.
    Bunker Hill - Hide & Seek 1&2. Turned into a frat monster by The Sheep
    The Brass Toad - In the back of my mind/ Easy to be hard. Doubled up, spare. Psych.
    Smiths Crisps, When it comes to the crunch. Brilliant 2 sided flexi. Somebody please tell me who the band is on this fabbo 45.
    The Sonny Boys - A midnight train / you and me. Obscure Belgian killer 45. Fuzzy, fast and fab.
    Everyone tear down your own little wall
    That keeps you from being a part of it all
    Because you've got to be one with the one and all
    You've just got to be close to it all

        It was already in my Discogs wants. Talk about coincidence, we played it at yours on Sunday afternoon, it popped up in my Discogs Monday morning, as a vg copy . Very cheap, went for it, it arrived today, good as gold.
        Should be a Ray king waiting in the morning
        Joking of course

            Nice Haul TB, Some I have, some I don't, some I want... I want 'Dinner with Drac' already! Bang on a Drum is just a great tune, has anyone ever pressed a 45 of it?

            Everyone should have a bit of 'Robert Wyatt' in their lives too!

            Oh and 'Pop Explosion' seems to be cropping up everywhere now even though its as far from a pop explosion as you can possibly get. Great LP mind if you like stoned sitar and tabla jams.

              In the post, the reissue of what has been called the most peculiar Swedish record, Leif Andersson - Med Andra Ord. Very nice job, with a booklet telling the story of the recording. The record came to light a few years ago, with very few copies emerging. A radio documentary fueled the interest, and earlier this year Leif was found, against all odds.
              1974 he went into a studio specialized at small run private presses to record two songs, Swedish renditions of Sinatra songs Cheek To Cheek and Fly Me To The Moon. The studio had brought in a piano player, but during rehearsals he gave up finding a key to play in, so Leif went ahead and recorded a capella.
              Fifty records were pressed that Leif took home, and after some time he binned them all. But a few must have survived.
              If anyone is curious to own this PM, and I'll put you in contact with the record store that put together the reissue.

                Registers very highly on the peculiarity scale here, CD - oddly compelling though....there must be more to this tale?....

                  It's sort of inadvertently avant-garde listening from a non Swedish speaking viewpoint but even so it would make a great basis for adding lots of electronic pads and noise. Almost like his namesake 'Leona Anderson'. I think GC is right there must be more to this strange tale!

                  He sounds passionate and to me that's all that matters but that's not to say I want to listen to it again.

                    You know, parts of it sound too odd to be true. Someone heard the radio documentary about the record and recognized the voice as his colleague Leif at a small local newspaper, checked out the sleeve picture online and it matched.
                    The included booklet is in both English and Swedish, apart from a closing fiction short story by Leif. The record is about 9 UKP if you get it from the source, about 5 UKP in shipping to UK I would imagine.

                      ...I might *have* to buy one. Where do I go to cratedigger?

                      PS while I'm at it, what are my chances of picking up an original of Bob Azzam And His Orchestra‎ – New Sounds from a Swedish record shop that *isn't* gonna cost over £100? Would you keep an eye out for me, or is everyone in Sweden already keeping an eye out for their own?

                        Don't think I've seen that Bob Azzam, but I will keep an extra eye out. It looks just enough "easy" to slip by most diggers I figure. Most are focused on 60s/psych/metal/MOJO.
                        I'm dropping a line to check if there are any left, and will PM as soon as I get a response. It's a numbered edition of 700.

                          it's been a "wall of fame" type record in hip hop circles since the mid 90s...

                              That figures. I'm not remotely near hip hop circles.

                                in this case it was all about the drums:




                                There's also a US version of the record with a different cover and track ordering.
