      A one tracker, but a really nice find! How the hell did that end up over here?
      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.

          Top three were from the car boot on Sunday morning. Roy Williams was nice to find but isn't doing much for me. Top right is raga-y from memory. I'll always buy stuff like this if it's cheap. Rough Road is a listless reggae comp - instantly forgettable. Electric Flag is entertaining but 101 Strings is yet to hit the spot.

          Some nice finds there. Give me a shout if you fancy a trade for the Roy Williams.

              Have some very fond memories of the Bam Caruso label but this Nick Haeffner LP is not pushing my buttons. Was surprised to see it cheap here in Japan.

                  Here's a weird one that turned up last week. It's the sound from various Famicon games. I was never a gamer so I don't recognize any of the tunes, but it's a bit of a rum do.

                    One more from the same place by Masaki Ueda & Junji Ariyama is this 1975 album called 'Bochibochi Ikoka' which is basically, local Osaka dialect Japanese for 'Shall we get going in a bit?'

                    Blues sung in the local Osaka dialect, it's pretty unique. I don't know much more than that about it.

                    Song titles like: 'Shall we go shopping' and 'You mustn't take it'

                      I had exactly the same feeling finding another Haeffner release earlier this year.

                        Same applies to Paul Roland.

                        Psych reissue labels in the 80s always seemed to have one of two 'neo psych' currently active artists on their books, and they were usually disappointing.

                          One for a quid yesterday - checking a charity, in amongst a brace of Kaempfert LP's stickered with the Kenyan record shop they were all bought in was this 45 by Ajit Singh & The Survivors. Bit of an oddity, A side is lo-fi synthy cosmic disco, with Ajit taking us on a journey to a higher plane. B side is afro disco with lots of percussion. Kenyan pressing, Hindi singer, and I can only find one other reference to it, a copy sold back in 2015.

                            Took a 50 or 60 LPs to a charity shop yesterday, it's a bit of a way away, but it sells LPs for 50p so I figure there's a better chance of things selling. Anyway, returned with 19 records, so that's still a net loss, right?



                            Northern Dance Orchestra - I think I remember this from the old VV site, but never had one. Anyway, has a good "Mas Que Nada", a slightly strange "Spinning Wheel", and also an interesting Pete Moore arrangement of "You And the Night And The Music"
                            Hypnotic Harps - Love Country - on Major-Minor - never seen this before, needs a clean before a proper listen. Tracklisting is good late 60s: "Witchita Lineman", "By the Time I Get To Phoenix", "Little Green Apples" etc. I love the sound of harps, from a needle drop it sounded a bit amateurish in places, but I think it will have a couple of good tracks and some sampleable moments
                            Ray McVay - 50 Great Party Hits - bought as a spare for "Vehicle", but need to find my other copy, I didn't remember it having vocals. Anyway, shout if you want it.



                            Not sure what's going on at Ray's party - looks like Britney Spears is there with a guy who looks like sinister Nazis do in films (it's more apparent in the flesh) and there's a shifty looking guy exposing his chest (maybe just embarrassed)

                            James Last - Paradise - never seen this before - with the late date ('84) and holiday themed track titles I was hoping for some nice synth-y mellow Balearic smooth grooves or something. But every time (about three times) a nice bass-y groove appears in an intro an awful accordian-ish sound comes in. Not sure if it's an electric accordian or a synth, but it's horrible whatever it is. Who's Roland Last? Son? Internet is no help. His name is all over the credits. Avoid.
                            Duncan Lamont - Summer Sambas - had "Best of the Bossa Novas" (with a far classier cover) for about 20 years but never picked this up. Re-using the outtakes of Mrs Michael Caine from the first photo session for the cover...
                            Eric Winstone - Plays 007 - never seen this before. Not bad funky easy versions (heard some Wah-wah from a needle drop), but whilst not the full studio orchestra affair, not sure if exciting enough to keep yet


                            There were a few 100 12s in boxes, initially it looked like an potentially interesting collection, but turned out to be what looked like a dealer clearout. These all free in unlikely event anyone is interested
                            Jay Mondi & The Livin' Bass - has a acid-jazz ish cover of The Mary Jane Girls "All Night Long", which isn't bad
                            Mister Tibbs Sureshots some unofficial remix thing, the "Uh-Oh It's Bollywood" is quite good, but I don't recognise the original song
                            PWEI - Get the Girl... + poster - Adrian Sherwood mixes. The main mix sounded familiar though, I wonder if that was the mix on the album anyway...
                            Finitribe - 101 - was thinking of Electribe when I pulled this out. This is 3 Andrew Weatherall mixes and one other. This and the previous remind me why I often hate the endless remixing of things. Weatherall has a great signature sound and those bits sound great, but then when the original song comes in it just sounds dreadful.
                            Palm Skin Productions - Condition Red remember the name from Mo'Wax, this is later, is pretty moody quiet stuff with the odd D&B bit on one track I think


                            Help.
                            Mike Harding - The Rochdale Cowboy Rides Again - a double. Agnes?
                            Slim to Rhythm - a few potential samples, was hoping for a groovier backing from the electric organ trio though
                            kids record - Hansel and Gretel and The Courageous Tailor - the music interludes are really good on this (note I have been listening to the rest of these records, so judgment probably impaired)
                            Accordion music! What am I doing? Those Oom-pah records are drawing ever closer. The first is horrific, really jaunty throughout. Courtesy of these guys:


                            The second sounded alright on first listen yesterday, the drums and bass much louder and a more varied programme (plus it has "Klanken" in the title, which sounds great). Just had a quick re-listen and it just sounded like an Accordion record, so maybe not a keeper after all.

                            There was also a Dennis Brown / Prince Mohammed 12" but only noticed it was cracked when I got it home.

                            And yesterday's bit of random art stuffed in a record sleeve

                              oh and the Nina & Frederick 10" - bit unfair to put the lovely pair in with that lot of junk, but then again their Caribbean accents are a bit of a joke. Wish they'd just sung this stuff normally, they do good versions otherwise

                                Some from the ogs, as the cool kids don't say:

                                Bobby Vee - as recommended in the cheapie thread I think
                                Burbank Philharmonic - was recommended years ago on the board, and had been looking out for a cheap copy for a while (i.e. no US postage), also again recommended on the cheapie thread I think?
                                White Lightnin' - File Under Rock - the first LP. Like the second, some really good moments. Think I'm just going to look for Obrey Ramsey's 50s LPs instead though.
                                Celia Cruz & Tito Puente - Quimbo Quimbumbia - not played yet other than the version of Aquarius / Let The Sunshine In



                                some more charity shopping from the other week
                                Elis Regina 2LP comp - this is the 80s reissue, remastered. Not sure it sounds very good though. Not played properly yet
                                Jimmie Rodgers Sings Folk Songs - the 50s pop singer, not the famous one. Nice versions of "Black Is the Colour", "Bo Diddley" etc
                                Stefan Grossman - Bottleneck Serenade - pretty dull, didn't like this at all
                                Keep On Wombling - never had this before. Was a bit disappointed with "Jungle Is Jumping" - now I realise it's the Mike Sammes/Denny Wright version to look out for
                                Mae West - Great Balls Of Fire - never had this before either. "Men" is great, the rest is a bit of a disappointment. If it had been more like "Men" and "Light My Fire" and none of the rock'n'roll covers it would have been much better.
                                Dr Murray Banks - Agnes - how's your Yiddish?
