I picked up some nice things at the Reading fair yesterday,
but I sold loads too so that justifies more purchases in my book!


Image

A well spent pound for this Chinese LP. This track is called 'Special Train'
https://www.mediafire.com/?4en0pr69336qgp8

Image


There was a bloke who had about 5 tables full of stuff and was doing a deal on them
before he shipped them off to Holland next week, the ones below were 3 for a £10 so I treated myself.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

I was really pleased with this one, the cover was a bit tatty but the vinyl was sweet

Image




Image

I especially collect flexis and this one for 75p (!?) pressed all my buttons, coloured, 10", sampler, FilmOphone!

Vinyl finds amongst the Lakeland Fells, mostly in Cleator Moor and Maryport

Image
I was very pleased to find this lovely Blue Horizon pressing as I've had to make do with a CBS re-issue for years!


Image
The Mac' were sitting in the 50p rack next to this Stax original



Image
The St. Kitts steel band tackle the classics


Image
MM..mm.. niiice


Image
Appropriately Maryport threw up this LP which features an entire side of songs by St. Winifreds School Choir


Image
God knows how this noisey/sweary Jazz LP from Wakefield turned up in Cockermouth.


Image
The sleeve looked interesting but it turned out to be pretty dull



Image

The most bizarre find and the only 7" was this African disc with a very strange tracklisting!

Image



Image
On a much lighter note, a decent mid 70's Dave Edmunds album

I picked up some pretty nice things on a recent trip to Milton Keynes charity shops
& a village garage sale earlier today. It really is incredible what comes out, however I missed
a load of Joy Division vinyl someone just dumped on the grass outside their house, a bloke
who was there minutes before me walking away with a bloody great grin on him.
But I was more than happy with the stuff I found, a whole stash of Indie LP's,
most still with their original Rough Trade stickers on. Several hand-made pressings and coloured vinyls,
including Sufjan Stevens, Sonic Youth etc, I wasn't complaining at £1 a pop but I had to get up bloody early!


Image

Abe Vidoga debut with hand-made cover with a grey vinyl disc/insert/CD of the LP

Image



Image
At the tip shop they had no vinyl but quite a few bikes.



Image
A lovely copy this scarce 2005 issue of this Mountain Goats LP



Image
lying neglected to one side was this 7" "oh you can have that for 20p" she said, "thanks" I said



Image
There was another jolly good sweary band disc too, these pics don't do it's lovely gold sleeve justice!



Image
I guess some DVDs are not as popular as they used to be...


Image

Proving that you never know what the hell is going to turn up in a charity shop, I was pretty chuffed
to discover this square flexi advertising a Bristol shop from 1961 tucked amongst the LP's

Image



Image
The crashed car I saw yesterday was still in the field just over the road from the village garage sale.

recent car booty

Image
Compilation of Dawn Records from '75 has some good tracks but unfortunately not the golden (early) years.


Image
I was happy to pay £3 for an original, super clean original copy of this baby



Image

In the same box as the Portishead was this US gatefold copy of my fave T.Rex LP

Image



Image

Lovely LP of poetry and music written & performed by kids, I have the full 13 LP set of the
Poetry & Song series which is similar but on Argo Records, of course now I'll have to look out for Vol 1 as this is Vol. 2.

Image



Image
I saw some guy put this 20p gem back into the box, so I took it out again ha!
The B side oddly enough is a version of Je' T'aime


This run of Bollywood soundtracks mostly by R.D. Burman were a sweet find

Image


Image


Image


Image




Image

I have a similar LP called 'Teach Thissen Tyke' aka 'Teach Yourself Yorkshire' so imagine my delight at finding one from the North East.

Image Image

along with the live album!

Tim Hecker: Love Streams
The Temptations: Psychedelic Shack
Miles Davis: Walkin'
Jackie Wilson: Lonely Teardrops

Ijahman: Haile I Hymn
Miles Davis: Porgy & Bess
The Strokes: Is This It
Fang: Landshark

Stopped by record shop after work Friday for the Tim Hecker, but the rest were at a really nice garage sale on Saturday. Really shocked to come across a great condition copy of Landshark (second '83 pressing) for cheap. Don't come by The Strokes at garage sales too often either.

some odds & ends I have picked up at car boots and a record fair

Image
This 7" was right up my street, the B side offers advice on growing veg




Image

It still amazes me that records like this can still turn up in charity shops for 50p,
this put in the racks of the Red Cross shop last Tuesday whilst you were at work!

Image




I haggled the 5th, 7th and 4th Beatles fan club flexi's down to a fiver for all 3 at a car boot at 7am

Image

Image

Image





Image

I was a 50p sucker for this Videodisc of Neil Young's classic concert film, no I don't need it and no I can't play it, but it looks nice!

Image



Image

This 2 x 12" pack by The Avalanches was one of only 2 records I picked up at the record fair yesterday.

Image


the other 1 was this old Mo Wax 10"

Image

Image



Image

The oddest LP I found over the weekend was this Deutsche Grammophon (promo?) in a record warehouse sleeve,
it's a kind of Christmas card album featuring The Nutcracker Suite

Image

Bests find in a while was a flea market over the weekend when I happened across an uncensored copy of the first MC5 record for $5. Then, had to wander into the local Record Show on Sunday. It gets held once every 2 months and is usually a good place to get some good deals, although not such a good spot if you're looking for specifics. Anyway, got the following:

The Beatles - Introcuding the Beatles & Meet The Beatles!
ESG - ESG
Nina Simone With George Wallington - Starring Nina Simone With George Wallington
King-Federal Rockabillys
Dick Dale And His Hot Rods - Wild Hot Rod Wails
James Brown - Live At The Garden
Ben Webster Quartet - In A Mellow Tone
Aztec Camera - Backwards And Forwards
The Jackson 5 - Maybe Tomorrow
TSOL - Revenge
The American Breed - Bend Me, Shape Me
Johnny Hodges - Everybody Knows
Jerry Goldsmith - Logan's Run Soundtrack
Dick Dale And His Del-Tones - Surfers' Choice
Paul & Paula - Sing For Young Lovers

Various 7" singles I have picked up in charity shops and the odd indoor car boot
when it has been raining, which unfortunately has been quite often round here


Image

Released to promote the 1982 World Cup and it is as rubbish you know the team were/are,
as anyone knows, you don't win football hits sung by kids.

Image


In the same box were these 3 x Oxford United FC singles, each one released to celebrate a move up a division.

Image
1986

Image
1985

Image
1984


Other odds and ends which I think I must have paid 50p each for, otherwise no-one else would.

Image
Concorde vs. Spitfires

Image
This has a good previously unreleased track called Jimi Hendrix's Strat on the flip

Image
One of Gene Vincent's last singles, released a few years after he died.

Image
Classic theme to the original TV show

Image
I thought this might be good but I didn't like it as much as her tune Pillow Talk it just isn't all that sexy really.



Image

Odd BBC records I don't already have are always of interest (to me)

Image



Image

I do have a copy of this record by 80's TV fitness queen Diana Moran aka The Green Goddess but now I have a signed one,
albiet dedicated to someone called Debbie

I am getting stricter in my old age by rarely paying over a pound for anything
I find in a field to add to my ever bulging racks.

Image
This was a nice find, the guy actually said "thats rubbish, what would you ever want that for?"
it turned out to be pretty good really with Blue n' Groovy and Green Onions standouts


Image
From the same guy was this fag smoke smelling 50p gem from '69


Image
Not sure if they are any good but I hadn't seen them before and they were in good nick, and cheap


Image
This looked like it was literally unplayed! I am prepared to break it in

some 50p singles

Image
I picked this Wombles 7" up for the cute insert with it's incredible prize offer,
I tried Googling any images of The Wombles on top of the Empire State to no avail.

Image


Image
Duane Eddy singles turn up quite often in boxes but I hadn't seen this one on Parlophone before

Image
I had not come across this UK Caedmon single before either

Image
Lot's of grubby tunes on this double album of dubious pleasures

Some 7"s from the car boot this morning, yes they do them on a Thursday morning round here. There were lots of cars
and it was pretty busy, but I only saw 2 other record collectors (who I narrow my eyes at as we pass along the lines of cars)


Image

Northants based folkies who released this EP on Cottage in 1977

Image




Image

In the same box was this lovely flexi-disc I had not stumbled across before.

Image



Image

A North Irish Christian spoken word oddity

Image



Image
Debut 1970 release by the same Music maker.



Image

Scarce 7" promo for a 60's cleaning product company, I had no intention of playing the B side, honest.

Image






Image

Curious (read rubbish) single by an ex Pontins Holiday Park house band, it came with a signed photo/label,
more info on them here

Image

Image



Image
I picked up this groovy R&B single for the title alone.






Image

Best find of the morning was in a big box of 7"s that had been gone through dozens of times before
but nobody noticed this weird wee gem.



I have also uploaded it for you here

Midweek digging in Milton Keynes and the odd car boot in Northampton, I get around.

Image
Two Ronnies LP's crop up quite often but I'd not come across this cheeky Music Hall
influenced one from '69 before and gawd-blimey it turns out to be pretty good!



Image

Double pack of the first 2 JC LP's on the great Fly label, I love that logo

Image

Image



some 50p singles

Image


Image

If this 7" from 1960 was from a series I'd love to find a Football one

Image




Image
I've heard of Helen's work but not seen her albums in the wild before
and this one has a tatty sleeve (on the rear) but the vinyl is beautiful.




Image
Highbrow spoken word/classical music discussion




Image
Sadly not a Vertigo original but a clean and tidy Bronze issue



Image

Not the best Traffic album but gotta love that sleeve.

Image



Image
a UK issue of their third LP - they still do nothing for me so will pass this one on



Image
I picked this 78 up for the title alone - looking it up I discovered he had done one called Hiroshima too



Image
Best find of the week was a super clean copy of The Animals debut album

Nice find on that Animals record.

I wish I could keep myself on a tighter per-record budget, but while I find plenty of cheap deals and don't go crazy with the high dollar stuff, I often can't resist when I run across that record I really want that costs a bit more than a drink at my corner bar. Splurged a bit of late...

Rolling Stones: Beggars' Banquet

Found this in a 25p bin today, I couldn't find anything about it online but as Argos came into being circa '73
with the death of 'Green Shield Stamps' (I can't be the only one here who remembers them!) I'd date this somewhere
around the mid 70's. It's got around 5 different jingles and songs on it, the best of which is this one
At a guess I'd say it was used as a promo maybe at some trade fair or other, I can't imagine them ever selling it.
