if it's the 1st solid blue triangle issue it's £500+ in good nick




Nah, it's a 5th pressing or something. There is a little note that came with it. It is probably worth about as much as I paid for it but I wouldn't normally spend 20 quid on a record unless it was one of my favourites, and DSOTM is far from that

I've picked up some strange odds and ends in the past few weeks, I dunno if it was a karmic payback for dropping a load of albums and singles at my local Shelter
but I came across a lovely stash of folk and classical albums in a charity shop warehouse just hours afterwards, so I like to think what goes around comes around.







No doubt quite a story behind how these 2 Scottish paper bag and video ad cards turned up inside a South African album sleeve.








I have 4 of these South African albums somewhere but this one goes up to 11 and includes an unusual choice of Lennon cover.








I love discovering unusual Scottish singles I never came across in Northampton.



Another nice find to add to my football vinyl collection.







Best find was a EX+ copy of this Trojan album by Tommy McCook & The Supersonics which has at least half a dozen stunning standout tracks.

A John Hassell private pressing of a meditation record from 1966, it looks unplayed and came with a card insert.







I'd never seen or heard of this odd album from 1975 which is hit + miss but I think the right word is "interesting".

Bits & bobs picked up on a recent trip to the beautiful city of Perth, I was pleased to find this handful of early 60's card flexi-discs
which were given to doctors from drug companies as promo discs to persuade them to use their products.



Some drugs like Nialamide offered here once used to treat depression are now long out of use due to unforeseen side effects like Hepatotoxicity.










Diabinese is still in use today.






Terramycin is no longer available in many countires due to side effects.






This vinyl disc promoting high blood pressure drug Centyl came in a wrap around sleeve featuring the same design as the actual sleeve.








Away from drugs and away to the Mediterranean was the way ahead for Jan Cunningham who boarded the SS Uganda in Dundee for her trip of a lifetime.



hear it







When Jan and friends came back from their trip on the high seas with all that rich food she would have given this promo disc many spins.






One of the stars of The Rocky Horror Picture Show released this cheeky red vinyl 'triple B side' single in 1978.



hear it






The ultimate chill-out record for plants, which turns out to be mostly classical music, who knew?

How do you find and get access to charity shop warehouses?

I found 2 in Aberdeen by googling csw, they are usually open to the public but on industrial estates, there are a couple in Northampton too

Narrowly missed out on 500 Vinyl for £100 earlier today on a FB buy and sell group that someone alerted me to. The collection looked to be in great nick and I would have sold what I didn’t want. Ah well. Have made a few discogs orders recently but not been too happy with what I got.

Desperately hoping that shops open up in Glasgow next week. I could do with finding a warehouse thing like you go to Head Gardener. Hopefully one nearby. Google search didn’t bring anything up.

Freddie must have taken note of this album title by the Israel Philharmonic as it came out in 1972

Records I have picked up in the past few weeks mostly in auction lots, some in Northampton and one lot in Dundee,
no prizes for guessing which country these few came from.


This caught my eye as I thought it said on the back that the drummer was Bill Nelson but I'd misread it, as it was Bill Neilson
and besides Bill is a guitarist anyway so it was one hell of a long shot!


Volume 1 was withdrawn of course as it was With Kids


Almost taking the piss in such Scottish pants, I really am gonna have to start a 'Scottish vinyl' blog soon...


Other bits from down south.


His brilliant debut 7" in great nick, thanks Ronnie.

Quirky 4 track EP which I'd not seen before but I recognised a couple of the tunes.



This single has crossed my path before but not in this if... movie sleeve




I was well chuffed to find this pair of Century 21 EP's in the same box - never had a copy of the Daleks one before.



listen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d_MPM7ZkN0Q




Never seen nor heard this one before either.

I didn't pick these up in an auction but found them in one of the many boxes of CD's in my garage after the move up north, the One Cut
disc looks like I hardly ever played it and the top 2 are We Love You Records comps and all 3 have artwork which makes them collectable
because of some fella called Banksy.












This was a sweet find in a charity shop in Arbroath last week, an un-played UK issue complete with booklet.
