    Finally. My avatar is the sleeve of the most common record in Swedish crates. It's very rare that you don't flip past it in a charity/bootsale crate. If it's not already at front as a lot of diggers like to front the crate with Pelle Karlsson's "Green Album", it's like a signal that it's not worth the while to continue, everything interesting is gone. The gospel album sold about 300.000 in the 70s with Pelle's Swedish rendition of There Goes My Everything leading.
    Today at a charity shop was no exception, the green sleeve was at front. But I persevered, and was rewarded with this. The only album by xian New Creation from 1969, with, you guessed it, Per-Olof "Pelle" Karlsson on guitar and vocals. It's not a grail, but maybe the most sought after Swedish xian album.



    I also found an accessory to my Philicorda organ, one of the rhythm records you could buy, to hook up your record player to the organ and play along.

        No, it doesnt pop up that often. First time for me in the wild. I guess the cover is psychey enough for most people to grab it, if they are not put off by the label Hemmets Härold which is 99.99% really boring Xian.

          Time for a quick round up.

          Not sure where I'd source good 45s if it wasn't for Mr Sayers. He sorted me out with this lovely clean UK copy of a classic.



          Was pleased to nab a copy of this extremely limited snotty garage punk 45



          Mr Sayers also sorted me out with these from a collection that landed in his shop. All great but the Human Instinct shreds!!



          Was astonished to find a clutch of decent 45s in a charity almost literally on my doorstep today. Never seen the Uzi on a UK press before.

















          And finally. I was in a charity this afternoon and this caught my eye. I took it to be some sort of 90s dance white label at first and I left it and carried on looking. I then had another look it it and left the shop. But something was niggling at me about it, so I turned around, went back in the shop and handed over a quid for it. It turns out to be a rare NWOBHM LP. It's awful to my ears but looks to be sought after. It's already residing on the record flipping site we all love.

            I had to look that up. Nice find for a quid regardless of the musical content! Linking into the other thread I note you are using the MVE strategy of record pricing for this LP
            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.

                Bloody missed that Paul Orwell 45 I seem to have stopped getting the Heavy Soul mail-outs. Probably pressed the wrong button somewhere!)
                Excellent batch of 45s as ever Lee, it's already cost me with the Uzi one.
                Nice to find a valuable record in a genre you have no interest in.

                  A little round up

                  Claude Francois includes the super phased Sierre moi griffe moi...Bend me shape me, fabbed up to the eyeballs
                  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_wt9FGKjcLc
                  Patchwork on Belter, the Decca one is pricey whenever I see it.
                  Fresh Air do a brill' version of For What it's worth, with a top geetar solo (gosh! how unfashionable)
                  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_cxKD_9xwl8

                  Firestone was a BIN thanks to Fuz
                  Bangtwister was a freebie from Eine. Many thanks sir, you were right, I do like it. Some kinda revolution sounds like early Nirvana with "Til the end of the day" style Kinks hooks

                  Ar-Kaics on Wick is fantastic modern garage rock in other words it sounds like it came straight out of 1966 which is how I like it
                  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RR4CLW4D1Mg
                  The DT6 - Got lucky on a reasonably priced copy of The Baden Persuader. Top, top tune. Music to sneek a peak out of the shadows to

                  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HP6FZ6akwGk
                  The Atlantics - War of the worlds. Killer dramatic, surf blaster. Plenty of clips of the longer versions online, but none of this shorter and harder hitting US version!
                  Carlo - Fever. Waves of wah wah in the chorus on this great version. Heads up to MrSayers
                  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R7FHZzo5jcg
                  Atlantic ep with Sharon Tandy on one side, including Hold On....which is the reason I picked it up
                  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Vn5wVhy7t0

                  Andwella -Worlds End on reaction. Super lp. Hold on to your mind floors me every time. Can't help it, that's just how it is.
                  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bPRozDOz9cQ
                  Jack Hawkins & His Orchestra - Everything is beautiful. Not as powerfull as the Plexium release (this is on Windmill) but still good.Worth 50p anyway.
                  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TCC_9tDwbmg
                  Chris Barber - Drat that frattle rat. Spoken about on VG+ recently. Weren't paying attention? Here you go then

                    Bangtwister's Agony Aunt is a long time favourite of mine since I heard it on John Peel. A real squall of guitars. Not on you tube but on discogs for less than three quid.

                      Crazy that Barber album didn't know he had it in him. Nice find on the 'Satisfaction' 45 too LDJB I got their first LP this year must check if that's on it (Edit it's not, released a year later). Only one solitary find dismissing some new purchases was this left from the recent record sale I couldn't make. Cover is a bit scuffed but vinyl is virtually unplayed, I never got with her years ago but listening with 2016 ears its great. Also came with an article on it from 'Sounds' cut out and stuffed inside. :



                      I did pick up a Marantz 2251b for 15 quid but I've cleaned her all out and the right channel is painfully low volume so I suspect a transistor has blown somewhere and it probably needs the capacitors changing. Still a good project to work on with my Dad, I could do with a scrapper as the front radio needle has snapped off and all the frequencys have rubbed off so I just put black electric tape around it. I'm never going to use the radio but it looks cool all lit up with the VU meter next to it. Someones defo been in it before there's some evidence of tampering about but other than that its clean as a whistle and the left channel sounds really good so there is some hope.

                      Still jealous of your Phillicorda crate.

                        Picked up the Fresh Air album recently but it's already gone out so I never had a chance to hear the cover of "For What It's Worth". Ok YouTube, here I come ✌️

                          GET IN! I see you nabbed the highly collectable debut single by Emeli Sande (although I suspect to your eternal credit you've never even heard of her... ) And I need to check that new 45 on Wick - Daptone's garage imprint, isn't it?

                            That Laurie Anderson LP is great. Must dig my copy out and have a listen.

                              This turned up at a flea market. It's a vocal version in Japanese of the Star Wars theme, which got in trouble with Lucas Films, who forced it to be withdrawn, because the whole thing was deemed to be low standard, lyrically and musically.



                              It usually sells in Japan for a couple of hundred quid.

                              I got it home and had a listen and it's really not that bad. Quite amusing, but more like the theme for a Japanese kids TV series, than a big budget blockbuster.

                              I wonder, did the Meco LP get in this kind of trouble?
