instead of posting these finds in the random thread I shall post them here.
These are some odd bits I found at the re-cycle depot yesterday, 7" are 50p + LP's a £1

Image

Image

Image
best find of the day was this beautiful 12" single by Macedonian group Anastasia






Image

another nice find was the original UK pressing of this album, the track-listing says it all really

Image




Image
featuring a track called Morrissey and The Russian Sailor sadly not about the man himself



Image
late 60's UK budget issue of the 1959 original in a totally different sleeve




Image

if your grandad was from Norfolk and recorded a folk LP it would probably have sounded like this

Image






Image

the pick of the singles, there were plenty more bird sounds 7"s released in this series by the narrator, but this is the 1st one

Image



Image

Image

Image
a few nice European Folk EP's were lurking amongst the Joe Loss & Mantovani LP's




Image
I thought this might be a comedy record, alas it is just a dry read through by the author of Parkinson's Law




Image
an upbeat and typically silly tune sung with great enthusiasm by Spike, with his take on Silent Night on the flip

I guess it's a sign that the local Polish community in town are culling their collections now
as I am finding a lot more European vinyl in the charity shops. I bumped into a guy on his way
back from a shop this morning clutching a pile of weird Polish folk and psych albums (as well as a copy
of This is Magic Mixture!) which he had just found in the local Red Cross, by the time I got there it
was only 7"s left but there are more LP's going out on Thursday apparently. Among these mostly mid 60's
singles were some original Jerry Lee Lewis and Jackie Wilson discs, but these were the the more unusual finds.


Image
4 track EP issued by Polish Airways in the 60's, hear here - http://youtu.be/nLucf3yC_qk


Irena Santor is a huge star in Poland, these were her first singles
Image

Image

Image

Image




Image
Bogdan Lazuka EP


Image
Tadeusz Chyla EP



postcard flexi from 1973 with it's original mailer
Image

Image

Image



Image

Russian cruise liner souvenir from 1980

Image



also in the same box was this Argo Records catalogue from 1968
sadly no pictures inside but some rare items listed including Michael Garrick albums

Image

I picked up 3 x 'how to stop smoking' LP's this morning and as I'm posting them here I will add a few other
health related albums as they go alongside them quite nicely, but I have had these heart records for yonks.
This first one is really good (especially side 2) and it also has some sleeve notes which wouldn't get published today!


Image

Image

Image
released on Contour Records in 1972





Image

Image
seems there was a run of these LP's but this is the first I've seen of them, Medi-Disc Records 1970





Image

Image
this is the second copy I have of this however this one is signed by the Enoch Powell lookalike





I've had this since the 80's but it's one of my rarer albums and a double too, released in 1968
Image

Image

Image





Image

Image
issued in the days when drug companies gave you an LP along with your heart medicine,
I am assuming they don't do that anymore nowadays?





Image

Image
a good way to look after your heart might be to listen to Romark or cut down on the pies




alternatively do it yourself with Mindpower Records
Image

Image




Image

Image
side 2 is like DSOTM era Floyd without the music

will do sir, but I have never seen another copy in over 25 years so putting a value on it would be hard!

have picked up some nice bits + bobs this week, a run of Van Morrison
and Roy Harper albums along with these records, it helped that 2 of my
regular ladies in the charity shops have been keeping stuff by for me, so I bless them!

Image

best find of the week was this very odd album of Communist Party folk songs
issued in 1979 on a red label of course, gotta love those song titles!

Image


Image
also in the same box was this 1970 album by the ex Monkee man


Image
a nice pair of early 70's issues by the great Brazillian guitarist



Image
they may wear cheesy suits their music is pretty good, especially 'Jam If You Jamming'




Image

I have a yellow vinyl copy of this LP but it's disappeared somewhere...
I'll have to keep this one as it's blue, I don't think it comes in any other colour

Image


Image

I took a chance on this and am glad I did as it's got a lovely gentle Jazz vibe
to it and it came with a sheet music insert - a private pressing 12" from 1988

Image




Image

I paid £1.50 for this (more than I usually do, haha) I assume it's a promo vinyl issue for one of the NME
cassettes they issued in the 80's - several of which I still keep despite not owning a tape deck for over 20 years.

picked up this lovely 10" 78rpm earlier today and can find nothing about it anywhere, anyone know more?
Ron Grainer is of course the chap who went on to do the themes to The Prisoner, Dr. Who etc.

a box came into the tip shop last week all in brown card sleeves and was just dumped on top of
a pile of crap LP's and I went through and pulled 52 out - a whole run of Kinks including 'You Still Want Me'
which I swear I knew nothing about. Along with Stones, Screaming Lord Sutch, The Undertakers and I offered
him a fiver for the lot and he said yes as he knows fuckall about records - there were original Stones & Kinks
& Searchers albums too but they were 50p each - it restores my faith that stuff is still out there if you dig*

*or just happen to be bloody lucky!

NICE!
Ever come across this one?
Image
Bonus points if you do.
Even more bonus points if you come across a full album from them, as they only ever recorded/released 7 tracks that I know of.
(And I want more.)

I've not heard of them but I guess it's not the same band who did this?

various records I have picked up at the boots/charity shops/tip over the last week or so

Image
remember skipping this in bargain bins years ago so finally bit the bullet and bought it and glad I did
as it's a good compilation with all the early singles



Image

nice topical find, released on Spark Records in 1976

Image


Image

this was in the box alongside the 3 albums below so I kinda made the assumption they came from the same person,
but who knows?

Image Image




Image

3 early albums all signed by Sheila aka Monsoon - shame the bottom of the Nada Brahma LP sleeve is damaged

Image

Image Image




Image

another good Indipop album was in there too, a compilation from 1983 with a Radio Northampton stamp on the label

Image




Image

this caught my eye as it is an early album by Maria Muldaur of Midnight At The Oasis fame




Image

I got this as I liked the sleeve and it was 25p and flipping the sleeve discovered it is a rather excellent 12" by Momus = result!

late December finds

Image

a great live Traffic album recorded at an Oz Benefit Concert, London in 1971
includes the great Dave Mason song : Shouldn't Have Took More Than You Gave

Image


Image
I've always loved Spirit and although I already have this album it was nice to find one
in better condition than mine, this US copy is from their mid 70's soft rock phase : Farther Along



Image

the classic Rubettes album with Sugar Baby Love on it, and it came with an actual hat, 'Wear It's 'At' geddit?

Image




Image

this LP came in a plain white sleeve with Musical Knowledge - Aural Test written along the top,
and turns out to be a one sided LP of classical music for students to identify for their CSE music exam,
I found the questions really hard, so god knows what the O' Level was like!

Image





Image

this caught my eye as it was produced by legendary Jamaican producer Coxsone Dodd
and it turns out to be pretty sweet and uplifting gospel music - best find of the week
Astley Dixon - Alphabet

Image


Image

I guess this is the Rugby Union equivalent of the popular 70's Liverpool football LP Kop Choir

a few nice finds among the chaos of the tip shop today

Image


Image

I found the first ever Ron Grainer 78 in this same tip shop a few weeks ago
and today I found his classic TV theme

Image




Image

I have a few Butlins records but this was my first Pontins disc. The woman 2nd left
looks a bit like a young Lynda Bellingham, but it can't be her can it?

Image



Image

a private press single of poems laddie, no idea of the year of release but prob early 70's

Image




Image
a tatty UK sleeve but one I had never seen before




Image

this may come in useful, come the glorious revolution brothers + sisters

Image




Image
I had no idea about this but it turns out to be a reggae version of the Rolf classic




Image

the vinyl is VG but the sleeve is in beautiful condition, probably my best find of the day

Image



I didn't leave it like this, someone seriously needs to tidy up a bit!

checked out the tip/charity/junk shops of Milton Keynes yesterday,
mixed finds as usual but was most pleased with the picture flexi discs!

Image

plenty to rummage through on my first stop at Kiln Farm

Image




Image

I couldn't leave the 3rd album by The Singing Postman especially as it looked unplayed

Image




Image
for some reason I actually have Volume III of this series but this is the first time I've picked up #1




Image

these 2 x pretty flexi-discs are like beautiful little side-plates and came in die-cut fold-out paper sleeves.

Image

Image




Image
a heavy metal Stars On 45 mix


Image

this was a sweet find, I only just finished watching the TV series recently too
and am currently working my way through the 3rd Thriller series now.
I had not heard of the B side programme Cover before

Image



Image

I have another LP by Ruth Wallis but hadn't seen this before, 25p well spent in the charity shop on Stantonbury Campus

Image



Image

2 cuts from an album which I've never come across before but I was pleased to find this US 7" despite it's scratchy disc.
listen to Why?

Darrell Banks: Here to Stay

Rare deep soul from 1968 on Stax subsiderary Volt Records. Got lucky for a quarter at Goodwill. Vinyl in perfect shape, looks like I'm the first to spin it. Bit of wear to the cover, but still quite nice shape as well.

I found a few old record and stylus catalogues along with inserts inside some of my album
finds this week along with some nice singles, nothing really rare but some are hard to find


Image
even though it was only 50p I nearly put this back in the box until just by chance I read
the production credit to - A Wizard - A True Star which I can only assume is Todd Rundgren
although the music doesn't sound like the sort of thing he'd normally do

Image

I love these old advertising leaflets, this one is for the Shure Stylus from 1974

Image

Image



Image

two old TV shows on one 7" The Sky At Night theme brought back memories even though it's not exactly all that catchy

Image



Image

I found this in a box of singles I won at an auction - it was full of Roy Orbison and Karl Denver records but
for a winning bid of £3 the lot I was more pleased to find this private press folk 7" from 1970 than the others

Image



Image

just some of the useful gadgets available circa 1972 thanks to the British Radio Corporation

Image



Image

I found one of these catalogues a while ago but not in as good a condition as this one, a showcase
of just some of the great early 70's rock and jazz available on Probe Records, musicassette and 8-track

picked up a whole load of Irish Civil Rights vinyl at the tip-shop this morning,
I guess they all came from the same collection too as they were all grouped
together. I already had a couple of them but at £5 the lot I think it was worth it.
They all date from the late 60's to the mid 70's, and some make for very grim listening (if your English)

bloke at the market this morning had these 2 records at £2 each (both for £3)
I already have a few Spiderman albums but these singles were a nice find.
They both date to the mid 70's and the PoTA comic book/7" combo is fantastic!

Used to have that one.
Lost in the great Christmas flood of 2009.

first couple of days of Feb have turned up a few LP's but am really looking forward to getting down on my knees
in the fields when the boots begin again rather than these pretty grubby tip shops, but still managed some nice finds.


Image
it was the mere thought of a funky brass version The Exorcist theme that made me pick this up!


Image

I must have missed these Irish civil rights related LP's the other week, singalong lyrics on the rear

Image


Image

the debut by The Tinkers on Pye

Image


Image
not an original copy but an unplayed Fame label re-issue


Image
rear of the cover had coffee stains but the vinyl is clean and a Go Beat original


Image
one to trade on as I already have this, but someone has gaily rubbed out the price on the sticker

Image

but from my own copy luckily I know the 'Gay Price'

One of my best days sifting through the dollar bin at a local record store in a long time.

Image

The big find is Strike Under: Immediate Action, the first record ever put out by Wax Trax! and a rare piece of vinyl from one of the earlier bands to help form the Chicago hardcore punk sound in 1980, even got one of the copies with the silk screened cover. Been wanting a copy of this forever and never thought I'd find it in the dollar bin as they usually go for some bucks. Perfect condition.

Guessing this stack of records was someone from Chicago because buried in a ton of late 80s industrial singles was Thrill Kill Kult: I see Good Spirits, I see Bad Spirits full length as well. Nothing super hard to find, but in mint condition a buck was a great buy.

Last one was just something for fun. Probably can find -M-: New York - London - Paris - Munich for cheap all over, but I didn't have a copy and it is a nice mint German pressing and a fun old new wave listen.
