    it's OK to head out for wonderful, but on your way to wonderful, you're gonna have to pass through all right. When you get to all right,
    take a good look around and get used to it, because that may be as far as you're gonna go.

    • That's mad Miles, I've just been reading some tales about him on the old 'peddlers.co.uk' website, not sure if someone from here started that up back in the day. An interview with him suggested he practiced full time Herbal Medicine whereas a few stories from readers suggest he was in various bands.

      One guy said he was one of the best drummers he had ever played with and he also claimed to have played with 'Billy Cobham'. He said he had the greatest 'feel' of any drummer he'd known especially for slow songs but yep there are some tales of craziness there too, an audition for a funk band called 'Goliath' for one. Seems he was quite young at the time of his Peddlers days spotted playing in a support band for the 'Stones' by Roy Phillips. He had big shoes to fill and he does a sterling job.

      Yep 'Quantum Jump' never had any of their albums but do admit to that song being a bit of guilty pleasure.

      'Longboxes' there the ones cheer Jude. I still own a CD that came in one but I'm ashamed to say I threw the box away a long time ago

CDs sometimes got a melted bit or notch cut on the spine, presumably done with a hot wire.

        Warehouses of unsold cut-outs were then later purchased by European importers, Sweden seemed to get a lot of interesting stuff - was there an article posted recently about some guy there who ran a huge record shop selling these imports?
        Yeah, markets were full of sealed cutouts mid-70s to mid 80s. There were some popup shops just selling them, some really good stuff found. Some still turn up sealed, Ian Matthews If You Saw Thro' My Eyes on US Vertigo is possibly the cheapest swirl you can buy here. Won't move fast out of 1€ boxes.
        A Danish guy imported a lot, think he was featured in the article.
        A local criminal got known as the LP Millionaire in the 70s. He imported ship loads of cutouts, but in the middle of the record boxes he stuck some contraband. Eventually a lot of the records went up in smoke when a port warehouse unexplainedly caught fire...

        • Chazza lps and a doormat 45.



          Raymond Scott & His orchestra -Popular music. The chap that did the strange music used in Funnybones and the famous Powerhouse (with his quintet) of Loony Tunes fame. .Not so much of the mad stuff on here , but some stunners nevertheless


          Paul Mauriat salutes the Beatles. Theres a few good'uns on here, but Get Back blew me away.


          Los Novintos - South American day trip with..On Chapter One and in mono. Arranged by Vic Flick.Only listened once, and it will definitely get another listen. My "in" was the great version of Day Tripper.

          The Family Affair - S/t. Never come across this Saga lp before. Got to be worth a listen at 40p. Once again I've only spun this once. Lo-fi sound, kind of garage folk, as in "let's get some tunes together and get them out there...NOW!". Definitely a naieve charm on first listen, a couple of tunes sounded ok to me. Will re-visit.
          https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mOQwN5Xdlkc

          LPO - Stereo Space odyssey. Good spacey intro, then just a couple of squelchy moments amid the classical tunes....Hmmmmm!

          Rats - Don't let go / Dragon child. Was listening to the Rimington tune (a monster, phased instrumental version of the flip of this 45) online and found a link to this, so I bought one. Glammy, rocker with silly lyrics about dragons, wizards etc, just the sort of crud I like I think the geneology of the band was Armada, Rimington, Rats. Haven't heard anything by Armada, but I believe they were proggy.

          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

              • Another doormat find after an email from Bleep which said they had found a bunch of these sat in a warehouse declaring it a lost classic or something (well they would, they wanna shift em.) I found a brand new copy on discogs for a fraction of the price they are selling them off for.


                7VWWVW ‎– 7VWWVW
                They are actually called 'Mammal' turn it upside down get it? They are pretty much an all analogue synth jam group from Scotland. Very cool if you like your electronica.



                Opening Track:



                They look like they all bought their slip ons from Shoe Zone.

                Also they did this cool 10" which Bleep have also found back stock of which was recorded to VHS live I believe, very Radiophonic. :

                • That's a good un. Bit relaxed for some but a nice listen.

                  • Think it's only a one sider that 10".

                    Was in town this morning and found this odd Xian record on 'Word' which I thought might well be a country record (it does have that vibe in parts) but it was from 1973 so I thought it might be worth a punt. Give it a chance, it starts off a bit 'Electric Prunes' then gets going. :

                    Tedd Smith's Requiem for a Nobody



                    Had a browse of the forum there is a great little review from 2005 by Pitch on this album. Its all pretty bonkers, strong anti drug message throughout making for some great lyrical content. Country meets folk and funky psyche and what sounds like a Mass in parts as above, pretty strange record all told. I'll have to find out some more about it.

                    • I picked up a copy of the Tedd Smith LP with an auction lot recently and it nearly slipped my net and into a box destined for the fair in Coventry tomorrow.
                      However I gave it a spin and was very pleasantly surprised, it's now no longer in my 'to go' boxes, of which there are 3 - so that is a recommendation!

                            • Catching up on finds over the last month, so excuse the lengthy here. Part one here essentially, charities & car boots all.



                              Althea & Donna - Don't think I've ever seen an LP by A&D before, so was happy to find this, essentially fairly conscious roots music, with Uptown Ranking sitting a little uncomfortably in the middle of it. Good record though, Sly & Robbie on backup duties. Grimms - Live concert by the poetry/art/music ensemble headed up by Roger McGough & Neil Innes. Jimmy Reed - excited to find a minty copy of this for £2, bit disappointed to find it's all instrumental versions of Reed numbers. Pete Atkin - think this is the first LP he made with Clive James. Nice enough stuff, need to delve deeper, I think. Papa Michigan & General Smiley nice 12 with the two of them listing diseases, should that be something you would want. The Music Of India is the music of India yeah? Not the best sitar LP I've ever heard. And Electronic Music has some 'interesting' electronic studies on it, some burbles, some whizzes, some noise. But is it music? *Ponders*.



                              Various UK issue soul 45's dragged out of a house clearance pile, about 10p each in the end. Labels bit tatty, records iz good. Heard the title but never heard The Equals track, and it's a cracker. the Willie Tee 45 is also a nice find. Had a few other northern bits out the same box, I think. The 45 with the picture sleeve is now one of my favourite record covers, just the picture and no text. So disappointed that the sticker is there. An EP by Jeanette Yorke and John walton given out as a momento of their performances on the SS Oceanic. She plays keyboards, he plays harmonicas of ALL SIZES. Charming. Eddie Cochran EP has a nice version of Milkcow Blues, and the Cashman, Pistili & West is a great lp of late 60's folk pop, nicely mellow urban tales.



                              The Last Man In Europe Corporation lp is on some great icy experimental synth-pop moves. Desmond Dekker LP was out of same box as the 45's, his first LP. Very happy to find the Ron Grainer Orchestra's The Prisoner 45, this is the Six Of One fan club 45 from '79. Marianne Faithful LP is just for a look if I actually enjoy any of her music, not sure I do. Nice to have a copy of Morris On, and the Dulcimer Players has a great lineup. Found a big pile of brand new indie rock LP's and 45's in a shop one day, The Shins, Arcade Fire, Cold War Kids, Go Team etc etc etc. Kwame Anokye-Toku is nice, nothing special, prob needs a few more spins.



                              Out of the boot the other week, Andreas Thomopoulos' Songs Of The Street lp. Fairly rare acid folk from 1971 by exiled Greek singer. Nice stuff. The Maysa sleeve is knackered, vinyl fine. Brazilian samba LP, some nice tracks, but the look on her face tops it for me, amazing. The Roberta Flack 12 is a Stevie Wonder tune with Stevie on backing vocals and is EXCELLENT. Great disco soul. And Lowrell is great to have on 12". Pink Floyd Meddle as it seems to be the one that I have found a few times now. Not a Floyd fan, but this is alright, for some reason the pressing sounds amazing.

                              • Some top finds there Benny, the Indian one and Electronic Music on Turnabout look interesting. I'm not a huge Post Syd Floyd fan but 'Meddle' is a great album brings back memories every time I hear it or catch up with 'Live at Pompei' from time to time.
