picked up additions to my collection of recordings of aircraft and the Isle of Man T.T. motorcycle race at the weekend
(I guess someone has to collect this stuff!)











watch the skies!










Olarrio

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

Brundle-Fly

1980 Venezuelan crossover progressive rock LP ---49p

I got this last week for a tenner.... Repressed 180 gm LP. It's the fucking bees knees.

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

even grimmer is an album I have of WW1 poetry which is sooo sad

a nice stash of MGM 10" albums yesterday for a tenner the lot,
the vinyl are all excellent but some of the sleeves have seen better days...














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.

from the realms of buying crap just as proof it really exists.
Mini - pops The album [nb]eta: I know the history - from TV hell onwards  & how it was actually innocent, just kids trying to outvie each over with make up etc. but yeah...[/nb]



Seen it online but not the same as finding the real thing for 50p, right at the front of the charity shop record box, complete with public visible shock/glee/ laughter &  why did nobody realise that photo makes them look like a child prostitute, why -ness? + laughing at the kids as Buggles.

It's past midnight and I'm posting about Mini Pops.
Fuck my life.

Saturday's car boot yielded fresh additions to my stash of kids records

The Scarecrow's song - If I Only Had a Brain



The Tin Man's song : If I Only Had a Heart

this song on the flip was withdrawn from the original film

I picked up 2 of these old Avenue competition EPs recently
and one has T in the intro and the other E - only 3 more to find!






The Letter T





listen : The Letter E - Black Night

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.

Brundle-Fly

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

I looked at this yesterday and thought i've never come across these albums before and blow me I found 8 of them today in Basingstoke, 7 from 1960 - 1963 &  1 10" from 1958.   

Strange to see people so excited by what I can only describe as charity shop tat.

there are higher levels of Charity Shop tat! you might like my blog of Charity Shop blog : http://headgardener.tumblr.com/



never seen this 7" before, but then it only comes around once every 75 years




and it was composed by a real Werewolf!





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.

some nice 7" that I picked up at the Reading fair on Monday



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!

the only Twickenham streaker to make a Christmas single










John Peel's favourite Scottish poet released this in 1961

Head Gardener



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

These really floored me.



Tonight I plan a night on the tiles, wearing down the souls soles of my shoes.
