finds in early March

Image
Been after a decent copy of this old 70's comp for ages and it's still really bad, as in good.


Image

I took a punt on these old soundtracks of films I'd never heard of with mixed results.

Image

Image

Image



Image

This was an unusual find, a double album of stories for schools released via the BBC & Penquin Books in 1973

Image



Image
A copy of the classic Ian Fleming story on an imprint better known for releasing Psych albums by Arzachel and Raw Material.


Image

One I've been digging from a Jazz collection I bought recently.





Image

Cat bothering bad opera compilation.





Image

£1 find I hope to put to good use.

Image



Image

Lovely unusual private pressing I found in the same box as the jingles 12".

all found for a pound a pop in a couple of boxes at an antique market

Image
The theme to TV show Follyfoot - nice touch with the release date stamped at top of the sleeve.




Image
This has the release date stamped on the side of the sleeve too.



Image
Four track EP from 1977





Image
B side is The Finale sung by Edda.



Image
Taken from their beautiful Barafundle album.





Image
Demo for the theme from the 1968 movie of the same name that starred Lucille Ball & Henry Fonda.



Image
Best find was this gem by Broadcast, probably the first vinyl by them I have ever found out in the wild.




A few oddities

Image

Image
Despite it's title this doesn't sound like it has any Zappa connection, it sounds more like a rubbish Rolling Stones song.



Image

Described on her sole LP as a cross between Max Boyce & Pam Ayres this is her blue vinyl EP featuring Viva La Wales (Viva Espania)

Image



Image

A great Century 21 adventure released in 1967, luckily the token was not cut out of the sleeve on the back to enter the competition.

I picked up some Bowie bits but these 3 were the pick of the finds at my first ever Monday car boot!

Image
a test pressing by mid 80's folk band


Image
private pressing by hairy rockers Terraplane (I took a punt on this as he wanted £6 so I offered £5 which turned out to be a good deal)


Image
the only single by 2 out of 4 Rutles

A very early start dug up a few gems in a packed field this morning, I awoke early and after putting the kettle on and looking up at the time then realised
I was an up an hour too soon so went back to bed until 6:15 and then merrily drove off to sit in a queue outside the massive car boot in Northampton.

Image

There were plenty of singles and one guy had 2 huge boxes at 25p a go, so I pulled loads including Iron Maiden, Pink Floyd and even an 80's re-issue of The High Numbers I'm The Face
which was an unexpected treat but this 7" was the pick of the bunch for me as I never knew the French drink Pernod had released a record on it's own label before and it's pretty good.




Image

I saw a bloke dipped down over a big box of promo card & pvc sleeved promo CD's and started to dig when the woman said "these were my ex-husbands, he used to have a record shop, you can have the lot for £8"
which was so cheap I couldn't haggle so just said yes straight away and the bloke who had been going through them was a bit miffed but he had a handful of them and she told him to just keep them.
There were so many I have pulled out loads of compilations to listen to on my trips up to Scotland and will give a mate who is helping me to move all the rest. The smiley face sleeved disc turned out to be a great surprise,
it's by someone called Dr. Coca Cola and it's worth the free download : http://www.duckworthsquare.com/AAS037/


Image

I couldn't resist these which were all on the same stall at 2 x fiver, the Screaming Lord Sutch is a keeper!

Hits and misses at a couple of tip shops this week, I doubt the Scottish ones I'll soon be visiting will be quite so eclectic or fruitful...

Image

Despite heavy racks of vinyl I only found a couple of bits in here.

Image
This isn't all that rare but it caught my interest to find out what a Bond era Connery has to say on it.



Image

This kind of single is catnip to me, I have yet to hear it though as I've already packed away my deck but I'm sure it has some merit.

Image



Image
All sorts of things turned up in these ramshackle piles.

Image

I have the Trunk OST album but never seen this US copy with actual episodes on before.

Image


Image

I don't remember this version at all and I'm old! The New Seekers version is on the flip though and everyone knows that one.




Image
Rarest find was this 1st pressing (of only 250 copies) of the debut release by The Deep Freeze Mice.



Image

The most curious was this Mexican 12" club mix by Jabba's Palace Band

Mixed picking in my first week since moving to Scotland, I'll be heading back to my regular haunts in sunny England once every 6 weeks
or so but considering how most of the charity shops are shut and the car boots are yet to kick off up here it hasn't been such a bad week.
Scottish law demands that face masks be worn from this week too so I covered up and headed into Arbroath and Forfar.

Image
yeah, yeah, East Fife 5



Image

The Serge connection was enough for me to take a punt on this French EP from 1960

Image








Image

Nice surprise find of the week was this single that I'd not heard of before but looked interesting.






Image

Rarest find was this Xian Folk 7" which originally came free with a Scottish bands privately pressed album in 1978
sadly there was no LP in the box but this is quite lovely.

I have discovered the joys of Scottish auctions this week which has turned up all sorts of things and not just records, I won a couple of boxes of folk albums
of varying quality but pretty much all in tip top condition. However, when the kind gentleman from the auction house loaded them into my car told me to make room
for the other stuff I'd won which confused me as I assumed I'd only won records but it seems part of the lot included paintings, crockery, mirrors and other stuff I never
wanted. So the lesson I have learned is that I have to watch the "additions" to lots I bid for as I was left with a car full of some dead persons belongings that I had to make
a trip with straight to the nearest charity shop, apart from a couple of really nice plant pot holders.

Image

I found quite a few Scottish singles in the charity shops (probably no surprises there) but there were some interesting ones (to me) like this pair celebrating
the opening of the Tay road bridge in August 1966 turned up among the albums. The blue bags hanging from the railings were full of sweets and crisps (not poo)
and are dotted along the bridge, not sure if these have been left to try and dissuade folk from leaping off but it's possible as there are lots of warning signs not to jump.

Image

Image

Image
The legendary rail bridge is in the distance, it was as grey a day as it looks too.


Image
Charity shops and SNP HQ side by side.

Image
A cool minimalist sleeve for a disc by a folk duo released in 1963 and how nice to "come by" a whistling EP by the great Jimmy Shand.

Image
Does it get any more Scottish than these three?

Image
yes it does...

I'm currently on a trip to my old hunting grounds, local car boots & charity shops etc, I've had a few good finds in Scotland including a huge jazz collection but for sheer I-never-know-what-is-gonna-turn-up,
Northamptonshire has few equals for surprises, although I rarely stray further than Bucks so I'm kinda biased, but I did find a few nice things at a boot and a shop with the weekend finds to come.

Image
Time was I'd pay little attention to the boxes the records were in but this pretty 60's case was too good to leave for a pound.


Some of the more interesting albums most of which were 50p from the same car boot as the fancy case.

Image

I assumed the 'Featuring CHILDREN' refered to the kids on the front but it was to a composition of his own and sadly not a cover of the Robert Miles tune either.

Image



Image
I've never come across a copy of this scarce album before, the sleeve has wear but the disc is lovely.


Image
A nice minty album of childrens songs released on a Topic imprint, some good witchy (Ritual Games) tunes on side 1.



Image

I find it incredible that an Appalachian folk album released in 1977 to raise money for an obscure American coal mine somehow finds it's way to a field in Northampton!
It's signed on the rear but I can't make out if it's either of the artists - Rich Kirby or Michael Kline.

Image




Image

The tip shop in town had a lot of fresh albums but I unearthed some interesting globe spanning singles.

Image

Image
Arabian release from 1962 by Saken Qassadi

Image
Square flexi-postcard picture disc from Venice.

Image
Obscure Welsh indie band from 1984.

Image
UK one sided stereo test disc.

Image
12" of the classic Planet Rock complete with Hip Hop sticker.

Visited my first Scottish car boot on Sunday, the field slowly filled up but there were some very dodgy looking characters about, so I had to watch my step but
I found a few albums and just missed getting into a good box first and I was up at 6am. These are some of the folky things, there were more a lot more, at 50p a pop.

Image

Image

Image

Image
Not a Scottish folk album in the same box as the three above shock!! a great sleeve for this one from '73


On Saturday morning I had visited a Northampton boot before I drove to Dundee (bloody hardcore me) and found a few things I liked.

Image

A local rap act 12" from the early 90's released by the Northampton Musicians Collective, inside was a flyer to a local festival, below.

Image


Image
A well loved but playable copy of Stevie's 2nd single from 1962.


Image

I couldn't find anything online about this 10" disc, possibly because typing Marley Vinyl into a search engine throws up quite different results!

Image


Image
I admit I only picked this up for the cheesy sleeve, but listening through it's not that bad either.

Picked up some unusual BBC records I'd not come across before earlier this week stuffed at the back of a box of Mantovani and James Last albums.
They all have what sounds like easy listening background music on, they are not muzak as such, more light orchestral instrumentals.
I guess they were issued to radio stations in the late 60's early 70's? but there is little info on them online to confirm.

my local paper has done a follow up article on the records I found a few weeks back - am chuffed to bits that they have included a link to my mix!

I've picked up a mixed selection of 7" finds on a trip down south, I only came to Northants see my mum for a few days but she insisted on taking me charity shop hopping.
She's got a great eye for ceramics and jewellery but I tend to stick to the things I know best and they're usually round with sound.

Image
yes it's (probably) rubbish but I can't leave 20p records like this for some strange reason.


Image

These 2 EP's we're sandwiched between some classical LP's, I was very pleased with the Moondog as I've never found anything by him in the wild before.

Image





Image
Lovely blue vinyl horoscope disc from 1960, I guess there are more in the set...


Image
I'd never heard this this 70's Dutch summer tune before but it has a spookily familiar tune.





Image
a Funky Disco classic


Image
Scarce finger snapping tune from '63


Image
Even Discogs don't have this single listed, it was the theme to a musical about Robin Hood starring Ronnie Corbett that totally bombed.

Various vinyl finds at a car boot, a tip shop and an auction lot win.

Image

I'm quite into folk music but this global lot are really Inter folk!

Image


This curious looking pair caught my eye in a 50p box but they both turned out to be line dancing records, damn.

Image
Image

Image
Image




Image

A tune still used today to plug things in Corby even though it's steel industry is long gone, it came in a nice swirly paper sleeve but I doubt that originally came with it.





Image
An unusual white label 12" from 1986 sent by Alex Pascall who was the organizer of the Notting Hill Carnival at the time to his friend John
it features 2 songs to promote the Caribbean Focus Festival, I could find no other info on this so if anyone knows more?


Image

Released in 1969 this was 1 of only 2 records released by the SCS the other was a year later and called Songs From Irish Pubs.

Image




Image

Dear old Mike certainly loved his idol Winifred Atwell and was an incredible pianist.



Image




Image
To find this LP in a charity shop in Bletchley, Milton Keynes is probably just as freaky as this 1966 album.




Image

I have a tidy copy of Ravi's first UK album from 1956 but the vinyl on this, his third one from 1959 looks unplayed.
