    Out of those I kind of like the blue 'England Dan' album from 71/72 I think, not so sure on the other yet.

        I had a great Blues score while out digging this morning - all the LP's/box sets were £1 a pop except the MC5 which for some bizarre reason was 49p
        (it's a UK 1977 mispress/censored g/f edition) this beautifully clean John Lee Hooker album from 1964 was the best of the lot.

          Came back from the UK with 45 LPs. About 10 or so new LPs and the rest not new ...

          These 2, I was very surprised to find cheap (My mate knows the guy who was looking after the shop!)

          The shop is printers and stationers on ezra street, near Columbia Rd flower market in the east end of Landin. A bit of a hit and miss place and the owner, Pablo prices some things very high because apparently he doesn't want to sell them. Look for stuff that's not been priced towards the back of the shop in piles ...

              Another thing on the list of things to work out when I get a minute, my stealing images off discogs days are over.

                One of those rare weeks where almost everything I've picked up has been pretty much ace.





                Got the Talking Heads 12" cheap off eBay. One of the most evocative tunes of my life as I can still remember seeing the vid on TOTP when I was a nipper and a) fundamentally knowing that this was great music and b) having the sense that this was more edgy and sophisticated than the run of the mill TOTP fodder (largely as it was clear that David Byrne was slightly........different). Alan Randall was from a charity shop in Sie's old stomping ground (Stabbo), signed of course, the kind of LP that this site was built on - who else would find a banger like 'Work Song' on an album with a sleeve that screams "Leave me in the box and walk away!". Gillian McPherson was very reasonably priced on eBay Australia, even with the shipping was a total bargain. Lovely LP, the title track is a perfect Sunday tune.






                After finding the Alan Randall in Stabbo, the run of good luck continued as I hit Rob's in town. Rob is still buying in the collection I've previously mentioned (the one that's like a window into my 90s past!). Chakachas vinyl is thankfully in far better condition than the sleeve would indicate and it's a really loud pressing, a bit of a VV / VG+ classic. The Brazilian TV OST is a bit pish, but redeemed by the Djavan track (E Hora), which is lovely. Maryann Farra and Satin Soul is a slice of disco / soul / funk genius. Tony Valor / Tom Moulton all over it, giving it the full Fire Island vibe. The Abdo LP would ordinarily be the kind of thing I'd swerve, but I noticed that Solar Plexus and Jason Lindh were featured, so picked it up. Mostly too 'WOMAD' for me, but the Solar Plexus tracks (Ah Ya Zen) is amazing.


                Obviously, everything I buy in the next week will be bilge. Such is the precious balance of life.

                  Some finds from a small open air record fair/market last Friday.
                  I'm curious to see if I can post photos to the new forum.

                  Savoy - Anotimpuri (Electrecord 1979)
                  Described on discogs as Soft Rock or Pop, and well, this is poppy for sure, and its overloaded with ancient synth sounds, but some songs betray older, prog and beat era roots. Overall I found it saccharine but charming.

                  Grin - first (Spindizzy 1971)
                  Never quite got Nils Lofgren, too lightweight for me, not least his voice, but the Grin LPs have been recommended to me, and this is the first one I've come across.

                  Eric Burdon Band - Stop (Capitol 1975)
                  This was playing on one of the stalls while I was browsing and I really liked it - jammy, funky (but not too), psychedelic soul, all in all quite Hendrixy. Normally the date would've put me off but turns out it was recorded from 1971 onwards, right after the Jimmy Witherspoon LP. Or so I read somewhere. Eric Burdon is rather underrated these days, I think, and hasn't received his due for fronting a number of excellent bands after the original Animals. Even if he did release some stinking LPs. The original Animals recordings are also held in far too low esteem in general aswell. Mojo is not doing its job.

                  Rob Jo Star Band - s/t (Dom 1975)
                  I pulled this from a 5 euro box and was shocked when I realised it was an original. The dealer just didn't know what it was. I've had as download of this for a while and I'm not sure it's a keeper.

                  I need more Ohio Express these days and this is a good cheap way to go. Great cover too.

                  Le Orme - US compilation on Peters International from 1974 approx.
                  This was too cheap to pass up but frankly this was a reflex purchase. Italian progressive stuff almost never turns up hereabouts.
                  Most likely I'll move it on.

                  Magazine - Play+ bootleg
                  As I understand it, this LP contains the bonus gig included in the 2xCD reissue of Play... and I have to to say it's a beautifully turned out reissue. Another example of a CD becoming a master for a vinyl issue. Discogs says 200 only made. I can't believe it.

                  Chambers Brothers - Love, Peace And Happiness 2xLP (Direction 1970)
                  I'd a choice between UK Direction of German CBS issues, in similar condition. The big Direction logo swung it.

                  Nino Ferrer - Metronomie (Barcley 1979)
                  Second issue but I just can't find a scratch-free Riviera original. Well known here, I think.

                  More later if this looks OK.

                    local charity shop finds the past week - the car boots were rained off



                    a couple of sitar albums including the UK issue of Ravi's debut and one on Deram which came in the original Sgt Pepper inner sleeve






                    I knew nothing about this but picked it up as it was a UK mono orange label Elektra, no matter how hard I tried I couldn't get into C&W versions of Beatles tunes






                    A couple of soundtracks, German copy of Midnight Cowboy with an alternative title and the US OST for Tron with some great dialogue and FX








                    Test pressing of a Jona Lewie compilation - featuring the great track Hallelujah Europe pts 1&2



                    some cheap and curious 7"s I just couldn't resist



                    I like the typeface on this one





                    I like the guitarist on this one



                    I'd not come across the UK sleeve for this before



                    Strangest of the lot was this single released by Robin Garton who was involved with the early Pirate Radio Tower stations

                        I've been making no progress with the Ravi that I found on my CSC. I suspect that it is me, not him. The vinyl is probably a bit too sub-par to 'freebie' it.

                        Tight buttocks on each of the Charles River Valley Boys. Something to do with being a cowpoke?

                                So nice to find one of these out in the wilds today, (along with some early Tamla & Chuck Berry)
                                I have come across one of these black & gold labels before but over ten years ago.
                                I had slight palpitations over the lack of photo credit on the front bottom right corner but I think it's just tatty.
                                Disc condition was VG to VG+ so I'm happy
