I picked up Tender Pervert by Momus at the weekend from Oxfam for £3.99. I bought it purely for the title and the fact it was on Creation so figured it'd probably be worth a listen. S'alright.

I also collect records about Space, sex, BBC, and trains - though I inherited a lot of those from my dad

There's something chilling about the thought of listening to a recording of actual WW2 dogfights.

I just managed to temporarily convince someone that this 5-minute Photoshop job was a real 12" I'd won on Ebay, and that it was a hastily deleted cash-in single that was only released in Japan on the back of the success of 'Pocket Calculator'. 

I'm so lonely.

Those titles on that second one make one sick story - it's like they're threatening to hang themselves then come back and haunt them.

I also have that lp, I found it in a house I moved into years ago and within a week I inked in some speech bubbles on the cover, fuck my boy arse, etc.

Look at these cunts with all their records... http://www.dustandgrooves.com/archives/

Not really a "find" so much as a deal. Thanks to another forum I picked up 76 classic hip hop LPs and 12"s for £76 including 36 Chambers, Reasonable Doubt, Amerikka's Most Wanted, Marshall Mathers LP and, erm, some others.

Full list here.

Contains some crap but mainly gold.

I have seen the Douglas Bader album and did nearly buy it. My own interests at car boots etc is Kate bush, comedy and adverts or TV themes along with old novelty stuff. I think I might start to contribute to this thread as I do love "discovering" stuff in odd places even if whatever I have is worthless to everyone else. There's a bloke who has started selling albums for a £1 and 50 singles at the local action mart who has all I need in abundance so I should be getting a good collection from him alone as he is selling old record stock off on the cheap from a vinyl store that had to shut down.

Got this last week. Unlistenable today, full of typos on the sleeve notes, but a lovely bright cover.

not an LP but an EP - it originally came with a set of slides, sadly missing





lovely 60's EP of Swedish birds but sadly just bird-sounds





Swedish EP by the famous vocal coach and soprano










2 more Swedish EP's of Folk music

I'll grant you those Swedish folk music EPs but come on, most of this thread is Music For Pleasure/Mrs. Mills/Great War Time Singalongs guff.

from their infamous 1975 season








Why So Pale & Wan : hear - http://www.mediafire.com/listen/aajvbdmr4ajw8o6/Pale_%26_Wan.mp3








I was aware of the Roger Glover album with (Love Is All) but I never knew this 7" even existed!

advertising single to promote Lever Brothers, makers of fine household products since 1885 - hear here







sadly not THE Eagles! this EP is from 1962





cover versions of both of the Carl Douglas hits







I remember seeing this band at the Reading Festival in 1979 so they must have left an impression,
this is the first time I've actually found one of their records and it turns out to be pretty good!




have not listened to this album yet but it could be interesting...




cheesy but well funky cover versions on US Pickwick from 1978




unusual England FC single from 1975 with dodgy lyrics! sample -

Here we are, here we are
The super whites are England's heroes
Here we are, here we are
The super whites are England's pride
In this next world cup we won't give up
We'll climb the highest heights
Through the wind and rain we'll play the game
England's super whites
We'll give our best against the rest
We'll fight with all our might
So come along and sing our song
England's super whites

England! England! England! England!


listen to it : Here We Are
