tramping across the fields ear-lie in the mornin' has turned up some odd things including these albums

Image
A strange one this (I liked the cover) and a really pleasant listen mix of choir and string quintet.


Image

This was in the same box, not had a chance to listen to it yet but it had me by the warning on the front.

Image


This nice pair of BBC albums I didn't already have were cheap in a charity shop

Image

I wasn't aware that there was a TV show called The Comet Is Coming I had assumed the new band of the same name had come up with it.

Image



Image

A tatty sleeve but the record was fine and a great selection of themes including Record Breakers!

Image



Image

Now I know where Pink Floyd got their inspiration for the heartbeats at the start of Dark Side Of The Moon (probably)

Image


some curious singles

Image
The first two releases on the Reflection imprint


Image

Two signed sevens

Image


Three releases by 70's 'comedy' legends

Image

Image

Image

Image


Image

I've three inch 7"s, square 7"s and all manner of picture disc 7"s but now I have the worlds first holographic 7" - and it was bloody difficult to photograph!

Not many singles have found their way into my grubby paws in the past few weeks but some nice albums have, such as...

Image

This album #3 in an edition of 8 copies came my way when I met the Basingstoke based artist at a record fair and he had a bag of his handmade releases,
the lathe cut vinyl came with an SD card with 100 extra tracks, a great way to spread the good grooves, and they are really good!
more info : https://www.discogs.com/Raz-Friends-Instrumental-Health/release/13670960

Image

Image




Image

A bloke at the car boot sale had a box of these beautiful, one sided gold discs, I am kicking myself for not buying the lot as they were only 3 for a quid,
I still don't know exactly what I am going to do with it as there is no music on them.

Image



Image

Strong double album compilation of songs played on an Oklahoma based radio station in the late 60's early 70's.

Image



a nice pair of picture discs were in the same box, along with some other heavy metal ones but these were a bit erm, sexier

Image

Image

this Japanese one is excellent!

Image

Image

Image



Image

I got this one for The Good, The Bad & The Ugly track and that cheesy grin (inner sleeve was signed To Hilda)





Image

A budget re-issue of an earlier album by a band who released an album on the spiral Vertigo label in 1971




Image

In the same box was this album from 1965

I had a nice albums and 78's score at the car boot today, luckily 2 of the regulars are on holiday so I almost had the pick of the field!
One bloke had literally hundreds of cheap 78's and singles and when the other diggers wandered off to look at other cars the stall holder
told me to go and have a look at the stuff he hadn't unloaded from his transit van, he had several big boxes which had mostly Elvis in which
I couldn't be arsed with to be honest but he did have some lovely Hank Williams 78's and some sweet 60's LP's at a pound a pop, this is the pick of the bunch.

Image
I had not found a Scott 2 with it's insert before today.


Image
Lovely Hank UK 78's and a 10" album


Image

I was pleased with the T.Rex as it had the sticker on the front and the poster, which I'd not seen before,
the Johnny Cash was a UK London front laminated original in beautiful nick.

Image



Image

a whole bunch of Stones LP's including 2 early UK mono's and a stereo Aftermath

Image

Upon further investigation I discovered this zipper sleeve had a sad message inside the cover...

mostly 7" odds & ends in the last 7 days

Image

The only record by the artist and the only release on the Verdley label and even the herbicide it's promoting has been discontinued.

Image


a few global discs

Image

BOAC promo souvenir for flying from London to Japan via the polar route

Image



Image

Middle East Airways promo for Lebanon from the film Farewell To Lebanon

Image

This came with a bizarre, slightly rusty solid metal centre!

Image



Image

The Chile National Anthem

Image





Image
Some old EP's



Image

Nice one-sided promo with a polite notice on the flip.

Image





Image
Another sound effects single but sadly not electronic music.


Image

An American pressing but sadly not the rare UK issue, nice sleeve though.






Image
A 12" I got today for 30p which has a great picture on one side, the music is by Joe Fagin from 1987.

Lovely sunny weekend of car booting (next to a ballooning festival) has turned up some nice vinyl gems.

Image
Some balloons were quite discreet, passing by at a safe distance.



One box turned up some original 60's albums in tip-top condition.

Image

Image

Image

Image

This old library album didn't have a sleeve but looked interesting enough.

Image


Image

Proof (as if it was needed) that I sometimes buy any old nonsense and I don't even like cricket (I love it, yeah)*

Image

*actually I don't love it at all to be honest


Image
Some balloons chose to come far too close, but some folks will do anything to get records these days!


Image
This Christian folk album would be a different record altogether with a question mark after their name.


a few odd singles

Image

A Coin Operator Release EP (for US jukeboxes maybe?)

Image



Image

I picked this up as I'd never come across this label before, which features 2 schools on the flip.

Image


Image
I'd never heard of this before and was quite excited when I came across it, but it turns out to be an old Bach tune played on a synth.

Mostly albums have turned up in boxes in fields this week, such as...

Image
Quite nice Xian folk


Image

A lovely old Sandie Shaw album in mono from '68 which is mostly cover versions but well chosen and the g/f cover is very cool.

Image







Image
A mysterious double sided EMI acetate was always going to tempt me to part with 50p, alas it turns out to be a recording of a school choir
with no guitars or keyboards to be heard anywhere, damn.





One guy at the car boot had a very interesting box but demanded £5 a pop for his records,
he had many I'd not seen or heard before including these which have turned out to be £20 well spent.

Image

Image

Image

This was a 12" and upon investigation turned out to be a 2nd pressing, the only way of telling was the number crossed out on the inner poster number!

Image



Image

Always have to pick up a bit of cheese on my travels, signed on the back and endorsed by the great Dick Emery.

Image



Image

These 2 cute 5" clear discs with experimental Welsh electronica on were sent to me via the R-Bennig label boss Johnny R.

Image



Image
Got this sealed copy of Alexis Taylor's album from a bloke at the car boot who had 2 boxes of new albums and 12"s (DJ Shadow, Hot Chip etc) for £1 a pop!

all sorts of finds in fields over the weekend


Image

Unusual to find a flexi plugging a book and in a fancy gate-fold sleeve with no expense spared, I hope it helped.

Image




Image

Guided tour of a Yugoslavian cave with bonus slides inside!

Image




Image

No relation to the band Slade, this Flame burned in the early 80's on the Malta pop scene.

Image




Image
A Rock 'n' Rollin' BBC demo, I thought he sounded a bit like Lonnie Donegan but that piano is pretty damn hot!




Image

More BBC records in a pair of great old sleeves, actually just as I found them.

Image




Image

I have all kinds of meditation albums but never knew of this one before, on pink Charisma and produced by the guy behind so many great records.

Image




Image
Irish 60's Folk & spoken word






Image

A great Island Records compilation, including a rare Tom Petty track.

Image



Image

I couldn't find out much about this oddity which is a mix of originals and Neil Young covers, it has a Deroy Records matrix of DER 1272

Image



Image

I was happy to pay 50p for this LP as the first track on side 2 caught my eye it's sealed but I'll bite the bullet.

I won an interesting record selection in a pair of boxes at the auction today, lots of things I had not seen before and mostly in tip-top nick,
there also seemed to be lot of ladies on the sleeves which may/may not be related to the fact that there were a LOT of old gentlemen's mags in the auction too!

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

it wasn't all about the ladies though, there were unexpected delights

Image

Image

these two were sold on a final reduction of 10p - thankfully the stickers are the type that are easily removed

Image

Image

Image
A 12" acetate that sadly turned out to be another bloody church service...

some nice car boot finds this week including a handful of scarce 7"s in lovely condition

Image

An unusual French EP with a lenticular sleeve, it's hard to photograph it in all it's glory but it's very pretty.

Image



Image
One member of the band went on to join The Animals.






Image
Two members of the band went to to join The Troggs.






Image
Most of the band went on to become Family.






I was most pleased to come across a whole bunch of original Durium discs which were all released in the 1930's,
I have 2 or 3 of these which are the only ones I'd ever come across in years of collecting and then I find 11 of them in one box!

Image

This one was issued at Xmas 1932 and features a play performed by Lloyds Bank staff

Image

Advertising info on the rear

Image



Best of all was a bunch of one-sided brown Durium flexi's all dating from the early 30's in a local record shop bag.

had some nice 78's turn up recently, Hank Williams and Jerry Lee Lewis among them and although this disc is good in it's own right it was the beautiful (but wrong) sleeve that I really liked

Image

Image

this one also in the wrong sleeve was very nice - but it would have been amazing to have it plugging his tune Midnight and The Stars and You as featured in The Shining - but Good Evening is lovely too

bits and bobs from the boots

Image
The first release on the mighty On-U Sounds label.


Image
I've never come across one of these Virgin 7" promo's before (one of my rarer Virgin singles by Captain Beefheart has a special hand stamped sleeve)


Image
Old actor Vernon Greeves wanders around even older English castles chatting away, as he does.


Image
A pair of budget label issues featuring Duffy Power, Al Saxon and some really twangy guitars and 15 tracks between the two of them!



Image

With a US issue in a gate-fold sleeve (the UK one is only in a rubbish single sleeve) and a Dutch version on yellow vinyl
and now this slightly s p a c e y sounding Quad version, no doubt I probably also have the CD and 8-track of it somewhere in the cellar...

Image



The most unusual finds this week were a couple of mysterious albums on the EMI Central Research Laboratories label that was completely
new to me and with the words Experimental Record on them an absolute bargain at 50p a pop, even if they were gonna be rubbish.

Image

The best way, other than playing it, was to check the matrix numbers in the run out but even these proved pointless as this one
with the number CWK 3001 on one side had never surfaced before. It turned out one side was half of the record Holiday Album
by late 70's new wavers Radio Stars, and for some 'experimental reason' the other side was bizarrely a Best of The Mamas & The Papas.

Image




Image

After a bit of research on this imprint I discovered only a couple of these discs seem to have been released before, one featured tracks
by Wings from Band On The Run and the other (probably very collectible) had tracks from the first Queen album on it. Well unfortunately
for me this one happened to feature the whole of this very common album by good old Manuel and His Music of The Mountains, damn.

An EP in a beautiful sleeve featuring songs from the 1930 film released somewhat belatedly in 1957





Image
Since I discovered one of the rarest Ron Grainer related records a few years ago (this 78rpm pre-releasing any of his soundtrack work)
I seem compelled to seek out all his other records, and this was one I'd not seen or heard of before.







Image
listen to Darkness Of My Life

This oddity (still in it's beautiful purple sleeve) features brothers Tony & Keith sharing the one disc,
there are versions on the same record with Keith taking credit for both sides but maybe that was because
Tony was being kind as he was the more famous of the two as drummer in The Shadows, there might even
be a signature on one of the labels too, though it's hard to tell which brother did it.

Image
listen to the fantastic flip side Hooker Street



Image
This guy only made a few singles including this demo from the mid 70's but he was still making music as recent as 2015.


Image
Another demo from the same box as the Meehan bros 7" was by the composer of the Hell's Angels '69 movie soundtrack.


Image
A mid 70's acetate by The YC's of Hendon North - who I assume are the Young Christians of that parish,
I tried in vain to work out quite which Sir Ian they are singing their praises to but it's either ex BBC director general
Sir Ian Trethowan or Gandalf, I'm more convinced it's the former unless anyone knows more - listen by downloading it.



Image

This Spanish band were so chuffed that someone bought their single they all kindly signed it on both sides.

Image



Image
I was best pleased with this pair of thoroughly Scottish EP's featuring songs and spoken word, there are 6 in the set in seems, hoots!

I must start by saying this record and poster etc are not mine but belongs to a friend, we had been chatting about the bands we used to see in
a pub in Milton Keynes in the late 70's, my claim to fame was seeing The Specials AKA and The Undertones among others in the tiny venue in MK.
For some reason, maybe it was because there was another show in town although I cannot remember what, but I decided not to go and
see this band called The Cure who were on there first tour, I had just never heard of them at the time. My friend did however go to see them
and took his copy of their album Three Imaginary Boys to the gig along with some other bits and bobs he had related to them like some
press pics his mate at the local paper had given him as well as a poster he's got from a local record shop advertising their debut single.

He has had these things literally in his attic along with some other stuff for 40 years, (the mind boggles what he has kept but then again I'm just as bad!)
So today I met up with him and I had to take some pics of the record and poster as these items and in this condition are virtually unheard of these days.
He has no plans to sell them as he's still a keen collector but I thought I would share them with you as they are quite incredible.

Image
My guess is each member has signed next to the household item they relate too.

Image
They also signed the inside sleeve - note Robert Smith writing middle top where he's written 'my house'


Image

Image

1st press release & photos

Image

Image

Image

A tiny stamp sized unused sticker with a pic of Lol Tolhurst

Image


Image
Promo poster which came from a record shop in Northampton fully signed in the middle which he told me hasn't been out of the record sleeve since May 1979! crackers.

I've had a busy week of driving and digging, with a trip up north to Arbroath & Dundee (where I will be moving to in the new year) as well as a local car boot sale down south.
I didn't buy anything in the shops as there was an awful lot of local music for local people. There were much better things turning up at my local car boot, I was just lucky to get
into a few boxes first as there is a lot of competition for vinyl. I started by tramping the streets of Arbroath on a grey and drizzly morning.

Image
The local football ground/amusements.

Image
There is a pretty harbour & lobster pot mountain.

Image

I found one 2nd hand shop selling all manner of stuff but the vinyl looked very well thumbed, not a good sign.

Image

The prices ranged from the ridiculous to the naah yer alright.

Image

Image
To grade the record "fair" would be over-grading it despite a VG sleeve.

Image
A surprise to find this lurking among the Jim Reeves but parts of the sleeve were missing and the condition was VG/VG at best so I left it as it was priced a round £100.

Image

The charity shops were awash with records featuring bagpipes

Image

Image

Image

Image


Image

The tills of Arbroath never saw my paper and iron, I even skipped the chance of a smokie (smoked haddock snack)

Image


To rub salt in the wound that a move up north may not yield good vinyl I went to the mid-week car boot upon my return home and turned up all manner of delights
including a stash of weirdy albums at £3 a pop. I've never heard or seen any of them in the wild before so was happy again after my Scottish disappointment.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image


I also found a stash of odd singles, this one being the pick of the bunch

With the open air car boots winding up for winter, though there is a local one determined to carry on until the end of November,
I have had all sorts of records turn up near the turnips (possibly) including these flexi-discs I found out in the fields, no really.

Image
Chris Gunning has been involved in hundreds of musical projects since the 60's from film scores (Man About The House) to working 
with artists as diverse as The Gods, The Hollies and Cilla Black, however on this disc he threw his skills into an egg advertising campaign.


Image
This is sadly not the hostess of 60's TV show Ready Steady Go talking about ghosts and spirits but hair colour, damn.



Image
Typically tasteless one-sided flexi from JK and it was all an act on the sleeve as he actually preferred schoolboys.



Image

One white promo flexi for a German textile company oh yes, but there were apparently 2 discs in this original release, oh no!

Image



Image
This pretty gold disc came free with Isle of Man Colour Holiday Book and features excerpts from the LP The Wonderful World of Man which I still have somewhere...



Image
The great voice of 70's kids TV show Animal Magic plugs the long defunct holiday firm.



Image
Brian Matthew has an enviable discography for voicing flexis on Discogs but not this one, so it must be worth a lot then!



Image
Another giant of the free flexi-disc voice over, Jack usually worked for Readers Digest but here he adds his dulcet tones to help sell Websters Universal Colour Dictionary.



Image
A disc from the late 60's promoting the famous beer, which is still getting folk pissed and singing since 1829 bless 'em.



Image

Released in the early 80's to promote one of their finest albums this features four excerpts including the lovely title track.

I picked up some nice and unusual 7"s in a couple of charity shops this week some familiar and several I'd never heard of before, including these demos.
