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...

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


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




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.




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



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.







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







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




some curious singles


The first two releases on the Reflection imprint




Two signed sevens




Three releases by 70's 'comedy' legends












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!

digging through my 78's I came across this one from 1910 - the first ever recording of a bird on disc : listen

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



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










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.







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





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





this Japanese one is excellent!











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

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x7p18uCcnLA





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

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SSqvMLozWrU




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.


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



Lovely Hank UK 78's and a 10" album




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.







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



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

mostly 7" odds & ends in the last 7 days



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




a few global discs



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







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



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







The Chile National Anthem - hear: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f6Q5VW0HVxk








Some old EP's





Nice one-sided promo with a polite notice on the flip - hear: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CRSwjhYmAY4








Another sound effects single but sadly not electronic music.




An American pressing but sadly not the rare UK issue, nice sleeve though.
hear: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HQmmM_qwG4k





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

F.C. Judd! That's Fred Judd, who's recently been rediscovered - a compilation album of some of his work is available:

https://bleep.com/release/34251-fc-judd-electronics-without-tears

As I understand it, he did a lot of early electronic music for TV / film production companies who weren't the BBC. One notable example was Space Patrol, an early 60s ITV marionette programme produced by one of Gerry Anderson's former collaborators, Roberta Leigh.

an unusual find in a box at the car boot earlier today had potential - it's a mid-70's UK EMI test pressing, could it possibly be Sex Pistols or Kate Bush or even Queen? I took the 25p plunge....





however upon deeper investigation it turns out to be...



ahh I was so close there!

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


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



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









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






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



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



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



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


a few odd singles



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







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





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...


Quite nice Xian folk




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.









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.







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!







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







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






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!
