bits and bobs from a digging spree over the weekend


I have never seen a copy of this 7" in the wild before and was so pleased to find it, as it was the name of the film
my parents saw and then decided that was what they would call me, still relieved they never went to see Heidi that day.


I found up a cheap load of old folk LP's on a trip to sunny Milton Keynes yesterday, on labels like Topic & Trailer but these were the pick of the bonny bunch.












the most unusual pair were these two


a 10" released in 1971




a beautiful album released on a label I had not heard of in 1965





This rare album was sitting next to a box but was sadly scribbled on!

I picked up a lovely stash of old Prog progs - most of which were from 1975 just before my gig-going time, my first was Queen in '77


someone was certainly out & about a lot in '75


all '75 - the Wakeman one was King Arthur ON ICE!


ELP '72 + '74



3 x early Genesis, including Foxtrot '72 era, The Lamb Lies Down '74 and an envelope with inserts including flexi-disc (Twilight Alehouse)
and a lovely fold out poster from their Selling England By The Pound in '73





various Tull tours from '72 to '80

A mix of the groovy LP's and 7"s have made their way into my cellar the past few weeks, including...



A nice pair of hippy self help albums, I never realized thought was such a menace.





I've always loved the title tune so was very pleased to come across the long player : listen







I knew nothing about this so bought it on the strength that it was on Island Records from '66
and should have guessed from the rear that the title tracks were not the usual stuff that Island
were releasing at the time, it turns out to be quite pleasant easy listening, sung in Italian.




some of the singles



Soul Coaxing : listen







CCS : listen








The Magic Roundabout : watch









Sex Aids : listen








Happiness is a cigar : listen

the new issue of Shindig magazine has a full page feature on the Wobbly Sounds flexi-disc book, 
there are also articles in Mojo and Record Collector but I have yet to take pics in W.H. Smiths!

It's been a while since I found any records out in the field. Slim Pickings would be my blues name since moving to the sticks years ago. Before that I'd be bringing around a dozen records into the house a month at least, but then I was digging regularly in the 6 charity shops a stone's throw from the flat in Edinburgh, coupled with regular jaunts to Underground Solushn, Avalanche, Unknown Pleasures etc.
These days, it's only the odd online buy that comes through the door except for the very rare occurrence of the record gods taking pity on me and providing a Skye jumble sale with records that aren'y jigs and fucking reels.
There's nowt eye watering but it's so rare to find interesting records around here that I felt compelled to post them anyway...and I was just thinking the other day that I need more Traffic in my life. Never heard any of the others before except Abbey Road of course.

Presumably the John and Yoko isn't one for the tripping tunes thread.

with the car boot season in full swing allsorts of vinyl delights are beginning to turn up


I just liked the sleeve of this 12" which turns out to be someone called Dubble D ‎
and sadly not the inspiration for the Walking On The Moon drum solo.



The sound of lots of old cars driving very...very... slowly... from London to Brighton including BBC's Blue Peter team .




The 2nd LP by Ivor Biggun aka Doc Cox from the 80's TV show "That's Life" features a whole host of erm, stars.







I have had this guy's How To Lose Weight album for years but until I found this one I never knew
he had done one on smoking too, nice touch on the rear of the sleeve where there is a cigarette burn!






Various cover versions arranged by the dad of the 4AD record boss released on the Pinnacle label in 1974.




A nice pair of stereo originals, I have a friend in China who'll have these!


2 x compilations, the first is bands on the Bomp! imprint including The Flamin' Groovies





and a pretty good mix of Avon based new wave and indie bands






a few nice singles turned up today, this electronic sounds one is excellent and I like the copyright credit on the label





this 7" with it's signed sleeve has a great flourish on the signature!







I could hardly leave this oddity in a 50p box, a 10" album in the back of an A3 sized book released in 1970
which includes a history of the London drinking holes, I wonder how many of these pubs are left today

picked up a nice handful of sevens at a garage sale in the week (all from the same stall)
I honestly didn't know about the rarity of the Mick Softley record, it just looked "interesting" and it was 30p...
