bits & bobs picked up at a couple of garage sales yesterday

Image

there were not many albums about but the ones that were made a very early start worthwhile

Image

VG+ condition on this was good enough for me

Image

3 early K&TG LP's in the same box

Image


Image
not my cuppa tea but when they are cheap I..can't..leave..them



Image

a bunch of these beautiful vinyl/slides sets, of course now I have to find volumes 2 & 5 to collect the set, damn!

Image




Image

there were some pretty odd sevens, this one I could find absolutely nothing about on the net

Image



Image

I'm a sucker for the cheesy ones, good on them for tackling Beethoven on side 2

Image



Image

pretty much all the records on this imprint are rare and this one from 1968 is a real oddity

Image




Image Image

a couple of new additions to my football vinyl collection

Took a trip to Milton Keynes earlier today to sign a 25 year lease on Radio CRMK - which makes me now the
proud owner of a radio station* I found a few things on my adventure round the City of Trees (* with another bloke)


Image
stopping off at Stadium MK home of the MKDons, it seems 100 AA vans couldn't fix them getting relegated last week


Image
some of the charity shops seem to be on a different pricing structure to my planet


Image

luckily I found a great bin in one which turned up a treat, which was actually sitting right at the front!

Image

it may have been skipped over by other diggers as even I had to look twice as I'd never come across
this debut album by a pre-shades/bearded Jeff Lynne before, complete with creepy inner gate-fold.

Image




Image

shopping trolley + vinyl = double win! including this double album on advice for the nervous

Image

and a very early tatty but playable Stockhausen album from 1962

Image

all in all a worthwhile trip out of town

A friend who runs a bookshop got in touch to say he had this unusual find for me earlier today.
Well aware of my debilitating condition Flexdiscia, he kindly let me have it for nowt.
Featuring excerpts from the 1970 stage production of the musical Catch My Soul and introduced by PJ Proby
it has great photos inside the A4 sized booklet - with fantastic graphics on the rear of the sleeve.

bits + bobs found out + about this week

Image
Theme from the 70's TV series.







Image

A beautiful atmospheric collection of songs & poems on a single by religious charity Toc H.

Image

In the same box was this album of reminisces by the founder of Toc H., if you search the charity on Discogs
the main reference is to Pow R. Toc H. by Pink Floyd, the rear of the sleeve strangely features Jimmy Savile.

Image





Image

A lovely near mint selection of 60's EP's of Victorian music boxes.

Image

Image




Image
Trump's current listening (possibly) I'd let him have this copy for a signed photo.





Image

A signed copy of the only single released by the ex 60's game show Double Your Money hostess.

Image




Image

A pair of Israeli related albums that were only 50p a pop.

Image



Image
I took a punt on this LP as I liked the sleeve and it turned out to be a pretty rare folk album.



but I was actually happier to find this original UK demo of a tune I remember when I were a lad.

Image






Image

This obvious fake silver award was only a fiver, but as the frame was broken it may just sit in the corner of the cellar looking lovely.

I spied Jimmy Page at the Reading record fair today

Image

hoping no-one noticed him stuffing Simon & Garfunkel into his bag

things I found at the Reading record fair - I am tight when it comes to buying at fairs and all the stuff here came to less than £20,
not had a chance to listen to everything yet.


Image

a test pressing of Bill Nelson's Sounding The Ritual Echo - a free album that originally came with Quit Dreaming...
not a lot to look at but when I saw it in a box with just the catalogue number (ECHO 1) on a plain white sleeve I knew what it was!

Image



Image
I have not listened to this yet but I assumed it's a sampler for their Budokan live album



Image
a spoken word oddity titled The Family That Plays Together Gets On Each Others Nerves


Image
a white label bootleg mash-up of Underworld's Born Slippy & Floyd's Comfortably Numb



Image
a black label Hendrix album from the early 70's



Image

one-sided promo with messages from loads of old bands, looking forward to listening through this one

Image




Image
pink vinyl & probably a bit cheeky, which is nice



Image
a great Xian psych/folk album - I picked a tatty copy up ages ago but this one is minty



a few 7" odds and ends

Image

Image

the weekend car booty vinyl finds

Image

I was pleased to finally pick up a copy of this album, I've had others in this Co*Star series
with actors that were never going to be as good as one with Vincent talking on it, and I was right!

Image

in the same carrier bag as the Vincent Price album was this soundtrack, someone had good taste

Image





Image

A very odd Swedish compilation album that despite a half hearted search online
turned up with nothing on P.I.E. 3722 Airways but it does have a cover of Typically Tropical's Barbados

Image



a small selection of cheap cheese, some signed

Image

Image

Image

Image




Image

a great old Breakbeat 12"





Image

3 great Scott Walker albums at one car boot was a bit of a result, the 2 below were sealed and new copies from
the guy who turns up at the car boot with boxes of vinyl at £10 a go, I didn't have 2 + 3 so how could I say no?

Image

I also picked up the 2 x 45rpm re-master of this beauty

Image



Image

there were not many 7"s but this flexi-disc was a sweet find, complete with speed changing disc on the rear
like a low budget Led Zeppelin III

Image

nice find at the car boot this morning, it has the music of Big Wheel (aka Barry Blue) released on Bell Records in 1973,
but with motorbikes revving up over the top on this edition

some sevens found in fields over the weekend, and an album in a charity shop this morning

Image
The unpredictability of going through singles boxes at car boots is the joy of coming across gems like this.


Image

This is probably a pretty rare charity single featuring the Spriguns of Tolgus singer Mandy Morton, signed too

Image



Image
5 different versions of the same tune O! indeed


Image
Edited from 3 x Best of... albums!


Image
YMO on yellow vinyl


Image
Alan Hull (Lindisfarne) related single by Robert Barton who had previously been in a folk band called Becket,
this single was actually a minor hit in Holland in 1975.


Image
A pair of classic new wave tunes released together to plug a compilation.


Image

Pretty piss-poor Pistols parody - more info https://punkygibbon.co.uk/bands/r/rubbishjonny.html




Image

Mo-dettes tribute to the East-End gangster




Image
Kenny slags off some quite frankly rubbish records but all in the best possible taste!



Image

The only LP of note this week was one I had to buy for the title of track #8 on side 2 alone, sadly after hearing it I need not have bothered.

mostly sevens seemed to be turning up this week but there was one album, phew

Image

The best find was this strange single probably released for schools in 1977
I couldn't find much online about it but the book is available on Amazon.

Image



Image
Scotlands fateful bid for World Cup glory in 1978



Image

The hit song for the successful jeans ad campaign in the mid-70's issued (as a freebie?) in a g/f sleeve



Image



Image
Lovely to find an original picture sleeve of this DB classic but I really wish Kathy hadn't written her name on the front, twice!



Image
Promo disc from 1968 no doubt handed out as you boarded the plane after your Jamaican holiday



Image
Signed release by tenor saxophonist Betty Smith


Image
Scottish folk EP also signed



Image

I took a punt on this religious album and wasn't disappointed as it has several surprisingly good tracks



Image



Image
Translated as The Pleasure Gas, this spoken word German 7" sadly isn't quite as sexy as the sleeve suggests

some 7" bits & bobs I picked up recently

Image
great one-sided, late 60's cleaning machine promo single.





Image
I picked up another copy of this silver promo flexi yesterday, my pretty rubbish old YouTube video has had 40,000+ views!





Image
The oddest, unexpected things turn up in 50p boxes.




the pick of the albums, I picked up a huge collection of Elvis that turned up at the car boot but these were more interesting

Image
OST from a TV show I wasn't familiar with but I liked the sleeve, shades of Police Squad in the theme tune.





Image
I wouldn't normally buy an ABBA album (honest) but this one looked unusual.



Image
This was probably the best find of the week, but alas had no sleeve, if anyone has one to trade please pm me!



Image

A lavish (and a bit weird) picture disc album with huge booklet inside the gate-fold and instead of
Dalglish or Rush or Souness for the LP cover I thought it was kinda cool that they chose Sammy Lee.

I picked up some great 7" singles at the weekend, an old boy turned up at the car boot with bags & bags of LP's
which were mostly 60's pop including Beatles, Stones but lots of them were tatty so I concentrated on the sevens
in a dozen boxes which were spread out over blankets on the ground, no-one else seemed interested in them probably
because it's usually a family & kids boot with toys and buggies everywhere, so at £1 a pop how could I resist?!


Image

A nice pair of 007"s

Image



Image
Italian issue - 1972

Image
UK issue - 1970

Image
Dutch issue in a bizarre not actually T.Rex pictured sleeve - anyone know who this is?



Image

2 x TV theme demo

Image



Image

A pair of sweet rock n rollers

Image




Image



Original UK issue with the backward print on the B side - the music is the A side played backwards!

Image




A couple of mighty Link Wrays

Image



Image

Image




Image
Japanese issue - 1977



only a couple of albums of interest turned up, I thought that this was a locally related record
but it turns out to be the Northampton in America, but pressed in the UK by Deroy, what were the chances?

Image



Image

I took a punt on this Polish Funky Jazzy LP as it had a version of Shaft on it, but it turns out it's a pretty great album overall

this weekend's vinyl car booty

Image
7" in a hand stamped sleeve from my dad's old shop - he actually paid me in records to stamp sleeves in the 70's!


Image Image

I really love the way his name is in SUCH LARGE LETTERS (as it should be really) it's a non-album track too





Image
almost poppy version on the B side of a scarce 7"





Image

a very nice copy of the original UK EP

Image




Image

early 70's rocker, the band would soon feature a pre-Sweet Andy Scott and his brother





Image
this is the version I grew up with in the 70's





Image
obscure country folk signed by the great man himself!



Image
cheesecake alert, the LP is pretty rubbish but love that sleeve!



Image

excellent early 70's compilation of Buddah stuff, check that tracklisting

Image




Image

Milton Keynes proggers who once had the distinction of playing Reading Festival, making the front cover
of top music rag Sounds and featuring (if you look really hard) on the sleeve of the debut Marillion album

Image

it's signed inside by the violinist

Found some nice bits on a trip east to Peterborough yesterday including some nice summery Jazz
including Brubeck and Quincy Jones, but I'm digging Sergio's groove today.

Image



Image

It was fate really, I go to see the new Mission Impossible film and then pop into a charity shop on the way home and bingo!
a Lalo Schifrin album I have not seen before, the track-listing is intriguing too.

Image



Image
A pair of old folk albums by a singer who used to be on Harvest Records in the early 70's


Image
In the same box was this signed album by 60's star PJ Proby, his message on the front reads
'Steve, I personally can't stand my voice, but if this album gives you some pleasure I'm happy, keep it - all my best PJ Proby Jim'



Image

In a tip shop in Peterborough I came across this old acetate, I gave it to a friend to sell as it's not my cuppa tea but is a rare thing indeed.

Image



I met an old punk at the tip shop and we got chatting and he told me he only lived around the corner and asked me
if I wanted to go and see some of his old records, which of course I had to do. We were walking to his house when we
started chatting about this & that and he suddenly announced he had just come out of prison. Oh aye, I said, what for?
"Armed robbery" he replied, haha I said with a slightly nervous laugh and decided there and then not to delve deeper.
He had a few boxes of really scratched singles but a handful of albums and he wanted a fiver for these 2, hey I wasn't gonna argue!
He was a nice chap though, probably just took a wrong path...

Rain has been a factor in keeping me off the fields of Northants this week, but I had a nice win at the
local auction and a few unexpected finds in the local charity shops, hopefully the sun will return soon.


Image

A great sleeve for this 7" which came complete with it's insert.

Image





Image
1960's one sided promo advertising 7" for Alpine Lager.



Image

2 x LP promoting Polish bands from the 80's with some good tracks on, and a few not so good.

Image




Image

A 50p find earlier today, I picked the UK single up recently too.

Image



Image
In the same box was this I'd not seen before, turns out to be a Philip Glass project which he produced & plays on.




Image
I couldn't resist this but it's not as cheeky as I'd hoped.



Image

Free (actually 50p)

Image


Best buy of the week was a lot of Indian soundtrack albums/singles in the auction which I won for £40

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

The nicest of them all was this one which came in a beautiful fold-out lotus sleeve, unfortunately torn inside but the album is great.
