I picked up a great selection of Slim Disc flexis with some lovely discs inside an A4 folder,
the blue/red sleeved discs both duplicates and are a mixture of classical music and spoken word

seven inches found in cheap bins

Image

an unholy trio of Noel Edmonds + Barclays Bank + soft rockers Home, though it's hard to tell if it's a real signature inside the gate-fold

Image



Image
promo EP - yours free with bottle tops from Havana Club rum



Image

Jackie Trent and Tony Hatch wrote and released this song for Stoke City F.C. back in 1972
I actually picked this up on a market stall just outside Stoke for a pound the other week.

Image



Image

These weird music for schools EP's are getting harder to find now, complete with instructions
for dance interpretation on the rear - I mistook the persephone for an instrument at first

Image




Image

Square promotional flexi-disc for the ill fated Strand brand, more info:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strand_(cigarette)

Image





Image

I like Viv's honesty on the label credits

Image




Image

a curious/religious/scarce/odd 7" from 1986

Image



Image

A previously unknown 7" private pressing from the mid 60's, more info: http://www.45cat.com/label/excel-services

Image


Image
This is possibly signed by a member of the band but I couldn't find much info on them

Chuck Berry: After School Session

Been wanting a copy of this one for quite a while and came across one for cheap this weekend. Very happy about this one.

Gardener,
Are these albums that you have been looking for, heard of, or are just taking a chance on? The styles seem extremely random. How are you able to listen to and digest all of them?

Vinyl finds about town

Image
Various bits and bobs at the re-use centre today including this which I'd not seen or heard of before.





I picked up a bunch of Xian Folk the other week from a shop closing down and went back for a few more as some turned out to be really nice and pretty scarce too,
Christ knows how I missed these ones

Image




Image

this one really hit the spot when I was chilling in my cave Sunday afternoon, a local group it seems as there was a concert programme inside the sleeve too.

Image

hidden inside another LP was this flexi-disc, which turns out to have a Christian story on it, not sure it came with the LP that I found it in

Image



Image

This LP turned out to be good, a compilation of old Listen & Move E.P.'s (I think I have a few somewhere)

Image

I could find nothing out about this album version, it's unrelated to the scarce Daphne Oram record below, I think...

Image


These picture discs were lurking in a charity shop bin, I'm a sucker for these even though the sound quality can be iffy.

Image

If I like it I'll keep it and maybe play it on my radio show, I'll generally take an educated punt on stuff that takes my interest.
Or I will end up exchanging it with fellow collecting chums for something I like or throw it back into the wild, or sell it at a car boot sale come summer.
I don't post up everything I find, but the ones I hope will be of interest to other collectors.

I won a box of albums at an auction recently and flicking through the ones I fancied I came across a couple of nice inner sleeves
which took my eye. It prompted me to dig into my racks to see what other pretty inners I could find and here are some I'd like to share.


Image

UK mid 70's advertising - this one was in a hits compilation

Image



Image
Pye mid 60's + poly-lined

Image

Pye early 60's with LP's on one side EP's on the flip

Image




Image

Mid 70's vinyl cleaning products available at Wollies - a bit tatty but a keeper

Image



Image
This houses my Dynaflex (a kind of bendy vinyl) US copy of Ziggy Stardust

Image
UK poly-lined inner fforr Ffrr Records



Image
UK mid 60's folk/blues/jazz imprint Transatlantic Records



Image

Beautiful UK poly-lined inner came with my copy of White Light White Heat

Image




Image

French poly-lined for RCA Records

Image



Image
Ciggie advertising from an Indian album



Image

Lovely late 50's/early 60's US inner for Liberty Records

Image




Image

This is probably my favourite inner - US London/Deram Records from the late 60's

Cousin of a friend moved into a new house and said they had a box of "crappy old country records that no one probably wants," but they knew I collected records so was welcome to them if I wanted as long as I'd take them away.

Turned out to be a couple hundred records, about half of which were pretty crappy, but also about a dozen old Elvis records, including early pressings of his first few, a couple Carl Perkins records, Jerry Lee Lewis, bunch of old rockabilly stuff, a stack of Ventures and other early 60s instrumental records. Also a copy of Waylon Jennings: Honky Tonk heroes and a few more classic country albums. A half dozen or so oldies collections that have a ton of good stuff on 'em. A Danny & the Juniors record, some Springsteen. Still sorting through 'em all. Not a bad haul for nothing. Mix of originals and reissues, no outer covers so some of the covers are a bit worn but they seem to have been stored well and the records themselves are all in fantastic shape with many looking barely played if at all. Here's a shot of one of 'em spinning:

bits + bobs found out + about

Image

The eternal question is finally answered and it involves Wagner and volcanoes.

Image



Image

Fully signed (I have to assume as there were 5 of them - I checked, one signed it twice) debut 7" by Dorset's finest

Image



Image
A suitably grim sleeve for this Robert Wyatt 7" I'd not seen before.



Image
I picked up several original cast soundtracks from the 60's in an auction lot like this one.



Image

This beautiful blue vinyl LP which comes with the full book of the title inside the gate-fold was a kind present.

Image



Some nice Library records found in charity shop bins - mixed in with the classical records which is why I assume they were still there.

Image

Image

Image



One extreme to the other, three of these albums were in the same box!


Image

From Summer Camp in 1972

Image

to Concentration Camp in 1945

Image

Image


Image
spoken word in 1975



Image
Thrash metal madness in 1988


Image

I couldn't resist this 50p CD lurking in the racks

recent finds in boxes under coats in charity shops

Image
French album of Portuguese guitar music - alright love, it's not that bad.


Image
One of Lenny's old stand-up shows released in 1974 on Phil Spector's own label, Bill Hicks must have been a fan.


Image
Billy Butlin eating a childs hand on the front of this LP from 1971.


Image

Late 60's folk album which could easily pass for a Belle & Sebastian sleeve.

Image




Image

He didn't make many records but the B side of his debut is one of his best.





Image
I can only assume 'hilarious boners' meant something else in the 60's.


I can't help picking up these promo advertising discs and although this one does feature ABBA & M*A*S*H on one side,
it does have the dreaded New Seekers doing a hits medley on the flip.

Image

Image

Image





Best find of the week by some distance was this 7" - I'd never even seen a RZ demo in the wild before
and luckily I had an original company sleeve for it, I do have a box especially for such occasions.

Image

Image






like I need any more, I still couldn't resist these 50p CD's.

Q: when is a record not a record?
A: when it's a party invitation!
It's a flexi-disc but has no music/speech on either side and it comes in a proper 7" sleeve but is actually just a invitation.

Fresh things I've found charity shops and one thing I bought in a proper shop

Image

A sweet flexi find on the front of an old Private Eye

Image




Image

Teach yerself ballet kit with added paperwork

Image

including a quite strict returns policy

Image


Image
From the same box, the artwork on the sleeve of this German pressing makes it another dance related LP


Image

A fairly obscure library music album on Oak, however it really doesn't sound in the least bit African

Image



Image
A red label Trailer Records collection of Ye Olde Geordie songs


I have found a right hotchpotch of weird singles recently and certainly none weirder than this!

Image

A one-sided, white label test pressing from the early 70's at a guess : download the beast
http://www.mediafire.com/file/7t753tk2ts9ma15/Suck_The_Cats_Brains_Out_MP3.mp3

Image



Image



Image


Image


A pair of football records I don't think I already have, the Brighton one is a 12" btw

Image

Image


Image

I probably paid more for this lovely new picture disc than all the other records above put together

turns out to be a scarce, early issue with the track Livin' Lovin' Woman mis-credited as Livin' Lovin' Wreck
I imagine Peter Grant blew a fuse when he discovered that cock-up!

this week I got me some new old vinyl along with new new vinyl treats

Image

Space Age pop from '58.



Image

I had to "sit" to listen to this.

Image


Image
"G" string sadly long gone but the outline of one is still just visible on the sleeve.


Image
Quite nice Xian folk from '79 by Brian Wilson but my guess is not the Brian Wilson.


It wouldn't be a good week without finding a few flexi-discs

Image

Image

Image

Image


and some unexpected delights I had not come across before

Image

The original version as used recently on TV



ooh, those cheeky loco's
Image


A nice pair of albums I can recommend that I have picked up online

some recent super seven inch finds

Image

A curious find in a charity shop bin, more info here http://www.45cat.com/record/dlc6791

Image



Image
suitably creepy (crawly) sound effects



Image

With relegation from the Premiership looming for WBA it was all so different 50 years ago

Image




Image
hilarious


Image
A great organ and fuzzy guitar tune







Image
I have tried playing this bizarre 3 holed copy but it's the middle one that still works best






Image
nice UK promo of the Spaghetti Western whistler - produced by the German Jack White





Image
A reggae tune about getting a headache from smoking too much weed, probably



Image

find of the week was this single I had never come across before, a catchy cut from the Mothers at Fillmore East LP

more seven inches, mostly from the first car boot of the season - hurrah!


Image

A great Mick Ronson cover version from 1980 in an exclusive German picture cover.

Image



Image
Late period Slits



Image

The sound of old aeroplanes on a mini-lp in a fold-out sleeve and promise of a poster, sadly missing

Image

Image




Image
This is the first time I have seen this BBC themes mega-mix (credited to Tony Blackburn's producer Phil "the collector" Swern)




Image

The same goes for this Glammy Pop which I completely missed out on at the time





Image
A KB 7" that never seems to crop up very often






Image
A mysterious one sided acetate with no info only a folky tune on it




Image
the only single ever released by C.O.B. which stands for Clive's Original Band - Clive Palmer that is




Image

Probably the rarest find of the week was this theme to the Sherlock Holmes movie from 1965

Image



Image

The same song that Cliff came 2nd with at Eurovision in 1968 - how strange that the label name checks the festival






Image

Written and produced my the late Bill Maynard - the BMA logo was no doubt separated at birth with

Image



Image





Image

4 track official bootleg from 1978

Image





Image

A football record I had never seen before, in an ad heavy gate-fold sleeve

Image

Image



Image
LFC piccy disc with a promo sticker, blimey!

I only went to one car boot this morning but it was a local village garage sale that came up trumps with a big haul
of rock albums at £2 a pop including Sabbath, Yes, Floyd etc, to find all the Led Zeppelin back catalogue in one box
was a first for me. They were not the best finds of the glorious sunny day but I was glad I dragged myself up and out at 6am.


Image

All in lovely condition and an In Through The Out Door I didn't have which makes it 3 down 3 to go.
Swansong released the LP in 6 different sleeves - you got it in a paper bag so never knew which one would be in it.



Image

There were several Who albums too, the smartest of the bunch was this UK first pressing with booklet.



Image

The sweetest of £1 garage sale finds (the guy literally went into his garage and pulled out a pile of LP's from a cupboard)
was this beautiful UK original of their debut from '65, it's a keeper!

Image



Image

The same pile had this boxed album sitting on the bottom, it even came with the original drumsticks,
"I bought it for my son in the 60's but he never used it"

Image

Back of the box lists a mind-boggling amount of other releases on the same label

Image




Image

Early 60's TV space show theme, I wasn't too fussed it didn't have the original picture sleeve

lovely finds at the car boots/charity shops/record fair this week

Image

This selection of 3 for £1 mostly Punk/New Wave 7"s including an original New Rose and various Sex Pistols, Clash etc
had only just come into RSPCA, the lady said she put the box on the floor 10 minutes earlier so it was just lucky timing really,
When she said "oh, the man also dropped a lot of LP's off too, are you interested in those"? it was music to my ears.



Image
There were The Stranglers, Cure etc but a few I didn't already have including this LP with the sticker intact.


Image
I have the Rezillos albums but not their other spookily similar incarnation.


Image
The pick of a handful of Reggae albums


Image
A nice MM compilation featuring some previously unreleased tracks




Image

I nearly left this in a 50p box but curiosity got the better of me and I flipped it over to find it signed by Tommy, Tony & Pete!

Image



Image

A 2nd hand record shop was clearing out of it's stock at 50p a pop but I found only a couple of 7"s of interest,
this one is a tribute disc released after the Kings Cross fire of 1987, signed on the front by one of the victim's father.

Image



Image

The other single was by someone cursed with a similar name to a famous guitarist, and came with a signed picture
of him + his merry band meeting HRH The Queen Mother.

Image





Image

Best buys of the week were at the local record fair when a chap came in with a box of LP's and walked
straight up to me and asked if I was interested in any, there were various Simon & Garfunkel, Byrds etc
but pick of the box was this first pressing, no EMI label credit, mono, top opening beauty - I made him a fair offer and he was happy.
The other nice one was this first Transatlantic pressing of BJ's debut gracing my deck below.

Just got this lovely 7" picture disc which came with a game called Foto-Finish in the late 50's. It features commentary of a horse race
on each side in which six horses are named. There are six near-identical tracks (and six start-points on the edge of the disc) so that the race is run
but you have no idea of which horse will win until the end of the race. So (in the game or on its own) you can bet on the random outcome.
It's similar to Totopoly and was made in South Africa but have little other info.

Had a great sunny tromp around the car boots this morning, finding all sorts of goodies, including some
punk 7"s folk oddities and even a Beatles flexi-disc. But the best score by far was a whole lotta Jazz from
a couple of old boys who were knocking them out at a £2 each, they were happy to see them go as they "hate Jazz"
but even though I am no expert I could tell they were all minty so just hoovered them all up and strangely no-one else
there was interested in buying old records, it's been one of those days!
