    Unfotunately - no. I was the other one in the world who had not a copy yet.

      Thanks bennyboy and Shere Khan, I'll get a copy and play it from Track 2 ...

        At some point I heard "Rockin' Chair" from "Breezy"and was prompted to buy the LP. And having bought it I was no longer convinced. I have been meaning to ditch it. I'll grant it a stay on the basis of Ben's recommendation.

          Some charity shop nonsense.

          'The Gift' in this case being what you receive when you welcome Jesus Christ into your life. Actually it's none too bad on first listen possibly the best of the JC related bunch here. :



          Look like a bunch of normal Yacht like Rockers but they are actually preaching the lords word so there. I've only had a quick shifty on youtube of this and it reminded me of Hot Chocolate but I'm probably wrong. :



          Look like some ill-fated detective series off of that there Thames TV circa 1978 but I promise you it's folky, clubland Jesus fare. :



          Looks like a bunch of people working in a slate mine but its christian jesus rock with Brit Xian evil genius Dave Pope on production duties.



          This looks like a mammoth fairground organ record but is actually a bunch of christian folk preaching their Jewish message to all the LSD addled folks of Haight-Ashbury throughout the 70's. This is a comp from over the years and bloody awful it is too but better than Malcolm and Alwyn. :



          I think this is the lot of the Xian hoard although a couple of albums remained which I may return for at some point although they were not screaming buy me. Trini Lopez's country album is not worthy of mention even more so is the 'Gerard Kenny' record which was a freebie from the market although I did find out he wrote 'I Could be so Good for You' which is knowledge I never had before.

          I'm obsessed with 'Shawn Phillips' at the moment and how anyone cannot think this man is not a genius is beyond me from his straight folk to his orchestrated folk, southern rock, yacht rock to his balls out jazz fusion cheese to funking it out with The Headhunters I've been gorging on his albums since 'Willy Fogg' gave me a copy of 'Faces'. He has some serious talent, beautiful voice, super talented and a songwriter of sheer craftsmanship and he wrote 'Season of the Witch' FFS!

          Innit weird and special and great when you just connect with an artist and just want to hear everything they have done, mind well and truly blown. Anyway this arrived today which was a bit scratchier than expected but it was under a fiver so I cant complain it's listenable to and the grading was kind of on point in an ebay stylee I'll make up my own way of grading things way and its a super album guy has folky, jazz chops coming out of his ears. :

                  That's what I've always thought but now I'm in two minds and probably shouldn't take Wikipedia literally! but... pinch of salt time on their 'Donovan' and 'Shawn Phillips' pages they both state although he wasn't credited 'Donovan' later credited him for the song albeit I cannot see he did that officially. The accreditation they seem to refer to back this up is here from what I can gleam. : http://www.goldminemag.com/articles/...shawn-phillips although that does not really give any factual detail

                  Looking at an interview with 'Shawn Phillips' from here: http://dmme.net/interviews/phillips.html when asked about it he says 'The music came first. I was playing the main riff, and Don started making up words.'

                  He was certainly never credited and still isn't it seems and from what he says in that interview he just wrote the music. It's got me intrigued now, I'm reading a bit about Shaun here and there if I dig anything else up I'll share.

                      Classic, so many great versions, 'Super Session' still my favourite, I can still remember when I first heard it!

                        Right....time to get underway with the compiling of this months overspending





















                        So, mainly just some highlights of the more interesting ones....

                        starting with the last word - funky and some....nice James Brown production, very tight, crisp funk with grit and a lovely break on the flip
                        Papa was too - stone classic, one of my favourite 45's upgraded from a crusty copy I gave to a mate.
                        Now this george cash - nightingale/splat thing is kinda weird, its proggy jazzy offbeat on one side then utter shite on the flip, I dont know what to make of it
                        Kenny Burrell - burning spear, classic cover of a classic soul jazz track. Benny Gordon - Give a damn about your feller man...very nice vietnam protest funk, been mentioned on here before I think
                        Grant Green - Windjammer OH LORD! classic, brilliant, genius.
                        Fabulous counts - get down people/lunar funk, another classic heavy funk 45
                        Mad dog and the pups - Hip Squeeze, kinda annoying but very funky, deep and raw.
                        Skipping ambassadors, bobby byrd and escorts - all well known funk/soul 45's (disrespect is another certified classic)

                        Lou Courtney - Skate now...so damn bloody catchy, upbeat mod funk kinda thing.

                        More james brown....dyke...blazers yadda yadda yadda....

                        The Boys In The Band - Sumpin Heavy....proper good budget funk 45, heavy on the drums....recommended
                        The Raeletts - Come Get It I Got It....YES, this is awesome, lovely soulful deep head nodder with stabbing horns, catchy as funk vocals and sweet melodies.

                        The Hesitations - Solid Gold...perfect title because they really do some solid covers of well known tracks on this.
                        Makeys....classic instrumental R&B/funk

                        The Roy Burns LP has a brilliant cover of dead ringer on it and another track which is decent...sorry for the vagueness.

                        Selected Sound - Cuts I....solid library, plenty of funky licks and hits and budget too.

                        Lloyd Price is meh.

                        The continental singers thing is a lot of fun...christian rock funk.....I need more records like this.


                        Thanks to bennyboy for the imgur tip but alas, imgur has been a pain in the arse for me the past few days and I cant login to my photobucket anymore.
                        There's a few more I havnt posted because I got fed up of cropping and resizing and errors and internet hanging.....so honorable mentions:

                        Freda Payne - Stares and Whispers
                        Diana Ross - Touch Me In The Morning
                        The Meters - Zony Mash.

                        Thank you for getting to the end of this post.

                            Sounds like they could have used a financial consultant.

                              OK, here's a few from the last couple of weeks ... always a surprise when real foreign records (other than USA) turn up at the flea ... doesn't seem to happen that much recently


                              Conjunto Explosão Do Samba - Explosao Do Samba Vol. 5 (1976) Not listened yet.


                              Masahiko Togashi - Spiritual Nature (1975). Not bad spiritual jazz, but needs a bloody good bath in the Knosti ...


                              Kyoku Koizumi - Melodies (1985). Bought for plunderphonic laffs. Soon to belong to one of you ...


                              Adolfo O'Reilly with Los Kimbos - Cuban Fantasy (????) Felsted Records SDL 86043. Bog standard smooth orchestral cuban. Can find very little info on it


                              Flo Livingston And The Satellites - In Dreams (1969). Bit of a car crash, but fun with it ...


                              Various - Golden TV Manga (1972) ... not listened yet, but it'll probably be earnest male singers doing variations on similar dull melodies. Only buy these for the covers. Had to buy something from a guy at the flea market, who gave me the keys to his van so that I could rummage through ... this and a YMO LP ...


                              Alessandro Alessandroni ‎– Alessandro Alessandroni (1971) Cometa Edizioni Musicali. Treated myself to this as I didn't previously have any of the man's LPs. 2015 re-issue ... a few lovely tracks on here ...
                              "White paper inner sleeve is pristine ..."
