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 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.

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.

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. (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/pub?key=0Aib7E3epBGKjdHpqWTlZRnVjdEVlcmpscXhyYlpGRXc&single=true&gid=0&output=html)

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.

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!

The Ingrid Bergman disc was a tie in release with a 1966 ITV play of the same name... It features on [spoiler]thebox.biz[/spoiler] site and is well worth seeing if you a torrent type.

I can sort that Bergman album for you if you have no luck elsewhere.
I found some nice old record catalogues inside some albums yesterday,
these were available in Woolies in 1977

a queer old mix of Bing Crosby, Slim Whitman and The Stranglers at their cheekiest on offer via United Artists Records (and tapes)

This is a budget label catalogue 94p was the price then but the value of it's entire selection has decreased over the years!

I've been listening to this since the age of about 8 - am I alone in loving it?

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.

Bargain! That's an excellent, excellent album.

Ooh, anything on Carnival is pretty damn rare, and certainly worth more than 25p (though surprisingly, not mega-prices).  I've got the Wes Minster Five 45, don't have any others on the label though.

I found this German picture sleeve 45 at a market stall only yesterday, which isn't that rare by all accounts, but was something I hadn't ever seen before and was dirt cheap:

these all date from '77 to '78 and hung on my teenage walls - the older Punks among you may remember these!

Just went ot an odd shop in town that sells all-sorts of shite and records as well. They had a box that looked just brought  in full of KPM, De-Wolf and other assorted incidental and background music. The condition of these looked very good to excellent. I got 1 for 2 quid so if i can get the lot for say 20-30 would they be worth it??? The plain green KPMs are there for a start.

Don't rub it in. Well done.

From what small research I have done it seems also the content (obviously) of the KPMs that decide price. Funk, jazz or the better known writers all get better price than "KPM irrelevant Greek shite number 21192".  The bloke who sells them doesn't know so much and has said in conversation that he uses Ebay for pricing and has accordingly  put the lot at £5 each which is great at times but cack in others. Bought for 45 and might go for 70+ I hope. Do I sell these 1 by 1 or in a lot????:

As all KPMs look the same here is the front of 1:

Apparently the person who brought them in has "loads more" and it's all from their grandad who worked "at the BBC". I asked who this could be but didn't get a name or anything. I hope to be in first when they come in and hope he still puts em out for a £5. There are quite a lot of different sound library firms and records were also from:  Music house, KPM, Chappell, Bruton music, BML music, Boosey and Hawkes and De wolfe. Which would you buy????

I'd mostly go for ones whose design looks 70s or 60s (as opposed to 80s), and ones that mention synthesizers are always worth a punt.

most Library albums after 1978 are not worth an awful lot, the Green KPM's can be good if they are Funky or Jazz

Went to a pretty decent record fair today and picked up near-mint copies of Gil Scott-Heron's The Revolution Will Not Be Televised and Prince's The Black Album.  Would've picked up more if it wasn't for the fact that holding a record fair a week before payday in January is a fucking stupid thing to do. Gah.

Not the transparent vinyl pressing, although that's probably a blessing. The vinyl is in near mint condition, which will be a vast upgrade to the scratchy and jumping mp3 version I found on a blog some time ago.

bought a shitski load of Russian albums at an auction for £3 today!
I am so hooked on auctions at the moment as I have had some great
cheap buys, the last few weeks have been especially good for unusual stuff.
I rarely come across Russian vinyl but these are the nicest/rarest ones

nice 7" finds at the record fair yesterday - these were all in the same 50p box,

selling all 8 boxes to a dealer for £30 but not before I'd had a good rummage!

I picked up the green KPM Reggae album for £14 a few years back and was absolutely delighted with that price, especially as I'd been looking out for it for a very long time. It features Dennis Bovell and a whole raft of eerie Bob Morgan compositions as well as the famous "Marguerite" one which was used on the Take Hart gallery and Channel Four testcard. 

The synth/ disco/ funk LPs usually seem to go for a price which is out of my league, or above what I'd be willing to pay for them since they generally only carry about 2 or 3 worthy tracks. I wish somebody would pull together a decent "best of" on vinyl.

Very! When are you on?

o, shit. apologies. The show aired at 8pm yesterday evening. I did check back a few times yesterday in the afternoon to see if anyone had replied, but then at some point got caught up in the show prep & etc.

However, having made those apologies, I will report the show itself (which went out yesterday at 8pm) was very clunky & I wasn't very pleased with it. Well, with me & my input/DJing if I'm completely honest. I was thoroughly distracted by the fact Mrs Country (who was also supposed to be co-hosting the show) went missing yesterday evening[nb]we have a fairly mundane but effective system where we text each other if we are going to be going off piste on our normal schedule & last night she hadn't sent one[/nb].

She eventually showed up, after 4hrs of me frantically[nb]I only get concerned because she works in a pretty dodgy part of the city (there's been rapes & murders up there) & most evenings she insists on walking home rather than take a bus or grab a cab, which I'd be far happier with given the frequency of incidents along her usual route[/nb] ringing around her mates/work/family[nb]her own phone was going straight to answerphone[/nb]. Longish story involving an impromptu visit to a couple of friends of ours, who live in the sticks & have barely any mobile coverage[nb]hence her phone going straught to answerfone[/nb] or a landline[nb]so, the one couple I was unable to raise by phone & because their name wasn't in my contacts I simply didn't even think of them as an option[/nb], that morphed from a quick hello/catch up into a getting pissed to celebrate some good news our friends had just received. She totally forgot she hadn't texted[nb]brought on by the fact the wife of our friendy couple surprised her at work & gave her a lift back to their's so they could catch up before getting a lift home[/nb] or called before leaving work to say she was making a quick trip to see these friends. So, in the safety of thinking I was aware of where she was, she got leathered[nb]they're all leathered by the time I've finished with them[/nb]. The silly bitch.

Anyway, that aside, we plan on doing more of these & properly in the near future.  I'll let you know when the next one is planned.

I picked up the picture disc of The Sundays’ first album for 25 quid at the weekend.  It’s probably more than I wanted to pay, but I thought ‘fuck it’ don’t see it too often.  Do you reckon it’s a decent price?

I also got a Spanish 12” pressing of The Boy With the Thorn In His Side for 8 quid.  Don’t usually buy 12” but again, just thought fuck it, seems a reasonable price.

£25 is what I paid for a first pressing 2wks ago, so I'd say that's about average for it. Seen it go for £45 in the past.

Cheers!  That 'Oh Happy Day' LP is fantastic. Bit of a goldmine the charity shops in Cardiff all told. As I was leaving one Oxfam a family brought in a recently deceased relative's record collection & it was huge. Asked if I could have a dig about in the boxes & was told the staff get first dibs & the records will be priced & on sale next week. Bah!

I also picked these up on eBay at stupid cheap dollar (av. £2 each) recently. Particularly pleased with the wonderful copy of The Colorblind James Experience.

That was £25 that was[nb]via eBay & way above the £2 average of everything else, but free p&p[/nb]. I haggled down from £35. I had a copy when it came out & it got nicked at some point in the '90s, along with a shitload of other vinyl & CDs[nb]Who the fucking fuck steals 1 CD from a 2 CD set? Cunts, that's who.[/nb] during a number of house parties, & it's taken me since then to find a copy. Years ago I spoke of not owning this brilliant album on my radio show & how difficult it was to find in any format. I got contacted by a listener in Virginia who said he had a cassette version I could have & then promptly sent it to me. Lovely gesture, but vinyl is where it's at.

Took a shufty in a local second hand record store today. What a mess. Records fucking everywhere. Hardly any order. Boxes & boxes of albums on top of many other boxes, boxes under desks & tables, stacks of the bloody things everywhere. Hardly any room to move or reach anything without bringing down half the stock or knackering your back. Fucking marvelous. Ended up spending a good couple of hours in there digging through piles of the things until the owner kicked me out to close.

Managed to find these amongst the avalanche:

Have had this King Missile CD since it was released but never knew this was available on vinyl. First time I've ever seen it on vinyl & at a fiver I wasn't going to say no.

(https://fbcdn-sphotos-c-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-prn2/t31.0-8/q83/s720x720/1398361_729834457057394_1615734107_o.jpg)

Had this nicked in the mid '90s along with a shitload of other records during any number of house parties we used to have. First time I've ever seen this record anywhere outside an overpriced eBay listing. Another fiver.

(https://scontent-a-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-prn2/t31.0-8/q77/s720x720/1957655_729834897057350_2035203184_o.jpg)

I bought the novel this album is based on & the CD. I didn't really like either. However, the completist feck in me said I had to get this to fill that Dogbowl / Shimmy Disc hole. That's what it said when I saw this for £4, anyway. I like it better than I remember being unimpressed by it back then.

(https://scontent-a-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-prn2/t31.0-8/q79/s720x720/1941419_729835037057336_953224066_o.jpg)

Been contemplating hunting down the House Of Love debut & s/t LPs for a while, but never really put any effort into it. Then this appeared in amongst a bunch of Soft Cell & Nitzer Ebb. £3, yes please.

(https://scontent-a-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-frc1/t31.0-8/q80/s720x720/10007271_729835187057321_1394525794_o.jpg)

Found this in a pile of Punk & New Wave boxes. £2.99, nae bad.

(https://scontent-b-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-prn2/t31.0-8/q88/s720x720/1655614_729835317057308_337843244_o.jpg)

This came out of a YMCA charity shop for a quid. It's a series of medleys of German folk tunes/adaptations/variations & is a late '60s promo album in a 12" folded glossy paper cover, which is wrapped around a rubber inner sheath covering a standard white inner sleeve & flawless vinyl. Yes, there is polka & some oom-pah.

Can't wait to go back & spend a proper day there digging through everything[nb]the secondhand shop, not the YMCA chazza.[/nb].

The last one is 'Beyond The Calico Wall' — a rare 1990 compilation featuring the following obscure '60s psychedelic bands:

Park Avenue Playground, The Hooterville Trolley, No Silver Bird, Afterglow, The Flower Power, The Pulse, Rasputin & The Mad Monks, Alva Snelling, The Spontaneous Generation, Cosmic Rock Show, The Greek Fountains, Duffy, The Pebble Episode, The Bohemian Vendetta, & The Demons Of Negativity.

Still at it. I was in there a few of years ago when the gas man arrived to read the meter. The meter situated beneath piles of records he believes someone will cry to find. Rob, in his adorable way said "Hmm, better come back next week". The place is pretty much back to the holy hovel it was before refurbishment, gladly.

I picked up near mint copies of Blonde On Blonde, Blood On The Tracks, Stop Making Sense and Brothers In Arms (it was mint, alright?) for less than £2 for the lot yesterday.  The guy selling them must've been a lunatic.  I didn't argue, though.

You well ripped him off on that MBV 12".

I don't think it's the one you've got, but I know one of those 'Welcome to the cruise' type albums is worth a bit. There's some tour bit where they guide you round the ship and there's a disco and the music that they're playing is collectable.

EDIT: It might be yours, actually, although I thought the one I was thinking of was worth more than £25.

They don't look to be in very good condition either, which eases the moral issue (and my jealousy) a little. I have seen that QE2 record go for £40+ on eBay. How much is the MBV one worth?

Post by: Head Gardener on April 14, 2014, 04:40:52 PM
ah no these ones are fine, haha! I sat with him for a few hours going through his boxes
while he complained he knew nothing about records but that he knew there is collectible stuff etc.
The Saucerful Of Secrets repress he wanted 5 quid for was scratched to buggery, so it was
swings n roundabouts, the MBV is nice though - he wanted 4 for that but I'm such a bastard I knocked
him down to 3 - it goes for 40 up but jeez I gots to make a living, Scottish wife, children to feed

It's not hard to find out what an album is worth these days. eBay completed listings would be the first place even someone who doesn't know anything about records should be thinking of checking, but even a cursory Google on the topic "what are my records worth" yields plenty of advice. If he wanted £3 a piece, then that's on him and congrats to the buyer. It's been a long time since I found a bargain.

Not finds as such, but 2 recent buys[nb]The current RSD TWP Welsh language release & last year's RSD German language release[/nb] & an owned single all signed by Gedge on the weekend.

My copy of the TWP French language version of Why Are You Being So Reasonable Now? signed by David Gedge at Wales Goes Pop on 19th April 2014.

I got into that weird professional/fan arena of reminiscing with a famous[nb]in that he's a name[/nb] stranger about something that happened in the past of said famous stranger, who remembers less about the event than you do, & your only connection to said event is via watching it on TV at the time it occurred.

It concerned the Gedge/Gaz Top interview & the bizarre opening question, around the time of the release of WAYBSRN?, regarding what the name of the band meant & DG replying something along the lines of "it's a present... that you give... at a wedding..."

He'd forgotten about that & it made him chuckle.

£1.99 charity shop. I saw this a week ago in a bundle of records. Noticing me going through all the vinyl the manager asked me if I'd like to have first dibs on an unpriced bundle that had just been brought in.  I saw the LP at the time but, inexplicably, didn't buy it. Last Saturday I suddenly remembered this record, so I popped in on the off chance.

The vinyl is mint. Never been played I reckon.  Apart from the top seam glue drying & the edges opening up, there's nowt wrong with the cover either. Lovely find.

Some more from our favourite secondhand record store.

Fonzie Favourites 1977 re-issue. Part of a 3 for £5 deal (£1.99 on its own).

We spotted this in our favourite secondhand record store, like, months ago but we didn't buy it. We were talking about this record store with our mate & telling him how there's a potential treasure trove in the midst of the thousands of records scattered about in no real surviving order. We talked about the stuff we'd seen & bought including this album, describing the pop-out stand in the back that meant you could 'display' the album sleeve, the near perfect looking vinyl (it's a bit hissy) & decent cover (dried glue / loose seams), the fact it compiles some pretty sweet '50s rock n roll & includes the Happy Days theme tune, plus has an 'impressionist' track combining the catchphrases of the Fonz. Which made us kind of regret leaving it.

We didn't get chance to go back to the store until this weekend just gone & thankfully the record was still there.

(https://scontent-a-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash3/t31.0-8/p843x403/965084_750136878360485_4692030237701459191_o.jpg)

Part of a 3 for £5 deal (£1.99 on its own).

We only had an hour to spare while at the store & this was one of the best finds in what we could scour during that time. Nice enough cover, vinyl is lovely. One pop, which happens at an inopportune moment in the audio, but apart from that it's a pretty smooth play.

(https://fbcdn-sphotos-d-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-frc1/t31.0-8/p720x720/10010497_750136955027144_2722536951550166904_o.jpg)

Part of a 3 for £5 deal (£1.99 on its own).

Me & the missus had been talking about this album a few weeks back & she, from memory, wasn't convinced it was any good. I bought it when it came out & loved it, but I think my sister nicked it years ago. So, when I saw this I took a punt to see if it stood up. It kinda does. There are some ballsy good tunes on this, let down a little by some of the usual naff '80s production tropes, & it's a compelling debut. I actually liked Neither Fish Nor Flesh, too. Then again, I was used to Prince mucking about & ego-ing up by then.

(https://fbcdn-sphotos-f-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-prn2/t31.0-8/p843x403/1980132_750136978360475_7996321730799266176_o.jpg)

£4 knocked down from £6 on the day. Knackered cover. Vinyl is perfect except for an ingrained dirt jump that needs a deep clean.

Had an hour's dig about in Kelly's Records in Cardiff yesterday & managed to find these beauts:

His Is Name Is Alive's Livonia. Sleeve's a bit scuffed, but the vinyl is lovely.

(https://scontent-b-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash4/t31.0-8/p720x720/10010012_751172878256885_8714447462636571761_o.jpg)

Jane's Addiction's Ritual de lo Habitual. This was a bargain. Perfect vinyl. Cover's a bit scuffed up/pinholes in bottom left corner where I think the cover's been stuck on a wall or something.

(https://scontent-a-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash3/l/t31.0-8/p843x403/1796071_751172844923555_5872221761909628276_o.jpg)

Daniel Johnston's Lost & Found. Brand new, still in celophane. This is such a good find, especially in a secondhand store hidden deep within an unordered, sprawling J section.  £10.

Title: Re: Recent Vinyl Finds
Post by: DrunkCountry on May 14, 2014, 02:24:41 PM
Went a bit mad yesterday in a couple of local charity shops & secondhand stores. Nothing spectacular but some nice finds.

Near mint. £4:

(https://fbcdn-sphotos-d-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-frc3/t31.0-8/p843x403/10264180_758457987528374_5887662601071643329_o.jpg)

Love this record. The shop's had a big blow up of this cover on their wall, in amongst a huge collage of album covers, for as long as I can remember & this is the first time I've seen the record for sale there. £1:

(https://fbcdn-sphotos-h-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-prn2/t31.0-8/p843x403/10365336_758457207528452_8709423014436276050_o.jpg)

I admit I know nothing about The Fleshtones & picked this up on the strength of the cover alone. Quite a decent record, all told. Flirts heavily with rockabilly & monster worship, with a plodding psychedlica & a sneery vocal that every now & then briefly makes them sound a little Talking Heads. £1:

(https://fbcdn-sphotos-g-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-frc3/t31.0-8/p843x403/1421043_758457317528441_8940140967676892101_o.jpg)

Couldn't resist this. Only £1 & the vinyl's perfect (cover's a big scuffed to buggery).  I can't really imagine being in an audience watching someone do this for nearly 2 hours, or however long the gig was. Great piece, though. Every 1980s' vision of the future movie soundtrack in one:

(https://scontent-a-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-frc3/t31.0-8/p843x403/10264064_758457384195101_3762344991599805741_o.jpg)

There was a nice run of Roxy Music in one store. All £1 a pop, none in particularly great condition, but the vinyl plays well on each. I've been getting back into Roxy Music through the vinyl, which makes the overall output make a bit more sense for me:

(https://fbcdn-sphotos-d-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/t31.0-8/p843x403/10317783_758439737530199_4844413323819935709_o.jpg)

(https://scontent-a-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-frc3/t31.0-8/p843x403/893755_758439550863551_6359945618674462818_o.jpg)

(https://fbcdn-sphotos-f-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/t31.0-8/p843x403/10273319_758439590863547_7952778046700455845_o.jpg)

I think this is a re-issue, or might be the European release, but haven't bothered to check. Doesn't really matter, though. I like the theatrics on this album. The Beatlesque variety hall ragtime Joanna stuff is amped up here & it's a nice playful album. I always see this as the 'pop' version of Harper's Folkjokeopus. £1:

(https://fbcdn-sphotos-e-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash3/t31.0-8/p843x403/1888808_758438930863613_8129810161962288833_o.jpg)

A Full Head of Steam - label compilation ft. Marc Almond, Diesel Park West, Syndicate, The Neighbourhood, Goodbye Mr MacKenzie, Zeke Manyika, Wild Weekend, Bliss, New Model Army, & Crazyhead. Curious little sampler.  £1:

(https://scontent-b-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-prn2/t31.0-8/p843x403/10298263_758439814196858_3452909166869916088_o.jpg)

OK, sure, yeh, I know. But nearly every girlfriend I had around this time was a massive All About Eve fan & I ended up listening to far more of them than I would have ever chosen to myself. Even saw them in concert 3 times. As a result, I like more songs than I don't. It's produced to fuck, this album, one of the problems I have a with this entire genre/period, but the melodies on some tracks are solid. If all wispy wood elf floral gothic patchouli smelling. 50p:

(https://scontent-a-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-prn2/t31.0-8/p720x720/10321798_758439220863584_4626716116638421311_o.jpg)

The House Of Love - Destroy The Heart Solid tune, if a little drowning in itself production-wise. £2:

(https://fbcdn-sphotos-f-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-frc1/t31.0-8/p843x403/902424_758439074196932_3622766933011837479_o.jpg)

The whispery bit he does in Beatles & The Stones almost ruins a great earworm of a tune. Nice to be abel to find a normal version of this as so far, over the years, all I've found in charity shops & secondhand stores is the remix version. £2:

Those are unsold listings. Sold bidding for it have sold for £80-100. Still, amazing find. I'd never expect that to be worth so much.

Post by: DrunkCountry on May 21, 2014, 05:15:11 PM
10min wander around 2 charity shops on Monday threw these up. All were 20p each.

Jimi Hendrix - Birth Of Success

w/live recordings of Curtis Knight & the Squires & Hendrix, 1973 budget reissue of 1970's "I'm A Man - Live"

The vinyl is riddled with surface marks but no scratches or jumps. The pop & hiss gives these recordings a really lovely bootleg quality & makes it sound ancient. The cover is knackered & had to be extensively repaired (this is the backside, just so you can see the tracklisting).

(https://fbcdn-sphotos-a-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-frc3/t1.0-9/10275929_762647137109459_7918534356358598830_n.jpg)

Madness - Absolutely

Never actually owned a Madness record before, but I do like their early stuff a lot. Who doesn't?

Battered to shit cover, that needed gluing as the cover had completely fallen apart at the seams. The original printed inner sleeve is near perfect, however, which is odd given the overall state of the record. The vinyl needs a blwdy good clean as first play revealed a lot of sticks & jumps due to embedded crap on both sides.

(https://fbcdn-sphotos-g-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-frc1/t31.0-8/p843x403/10257342_762647303776109_103065693059622941_o.jpg)

Young Love / Too Young 7"

A side from the MFP album "Smash Hits '73"
B side from "Hot Hits" volume 14

I was drawn to this because of how odd it seemed. It's on Music For Pleasure's Surprise! Surprise! sub-label & is ostensibly a children's record (as evidenced by the 'colour this drawing with crayons or paints!' invitation, on the backside of the cover, below what are the same 2 characters but in a black & white line drawing), which overall makes this a pretty creepy endeavour.

(https://fbcdn-sphotos-h-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-frc3/t31.0-8/p843x403/10380228_762647373776102_5718337199684483435_o.jpg)

The Walker Bros. - Make It Easy On Yourself

Nice vinyl, plays perfect.

in 1969 the best way to flog LP's of dodgy cover versions was of course
to have the ladies showing their lovely knickers. The man responsible refuses
to show his pants but at least he's left some deck-chairs out for the ladies, nice.

A handful of stuff from a pile I picked up in charity & secondhand record stores over the past week or so.

25p. Vinyl is near perfect (some slight surface marks), as is the inner sleeve; outer is scuffed/loved.

(https://fbcdn-sphotos-e-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xfa1/t31.0-8/p843x403/10373009_771079342932905_265141790011975026_o.jpg)


25p. Storage bent/marked cover, vinyl looks hardly played.

(https://scontent-a-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xpa1/t31.0-8/p843x403/1501136_771079796266193_5608166847669373401_o.jpg)

25p. Plays very nicely, vinyl has a few scuffs but overall is very clean; cover not too bad, some scuffs & a dent on top spine; inner = not bad at all, almost no handling marks.

(https://fbcdn-sphotos-a-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xfp1/t31.0-8/p843x403/10450020_771080529599453_5934968366334662008_o.jpg)

25p. Bought purely out of curiosity as I didn't think this album would have been released on vinyl given the year of release/CD predominance etc.  Outer is a bit scuffed & roughed up, but the inner sleeve & vinyl looked untouched when I pulled them out.

(https://scontent-a-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xfp1/t31.0-8/p843x403/10298351_771081039599402_996302228133382119_o.jpg)

99p eBay purchase (+ £2.70 p&p)

Sticker tear in top right corner & a couple of mildly tatty edges, but apart from that the inner & vinyl are near mint.

Nobody cares but for the record this is the new amp...

That's very nice. I have nothing but bother with old amps, but stick with them as they look great and sound tremendous when working. Especially in a nice vinyl setup.

Some great bargains via eBay & secondhand record stores recently.

Breeders - Pod £5 secondhand store

I've been looking for this on original vinyl for about a year & have had about 5 near misses on eBay when trying to buy this. All previous auctions ended up in the £25-£30 region. I was just bimbling about a secondhand store today, looking through the alphabetical piles, when I spotted this. Then I spotted the £5 sticker. Then I checked the inner & vinyl & was ridiculously excited when I saw they're in top nick. Result!

LOVE this album. Love it. Everything about it is fucking ace.

Tom Waits - Big Time £4 secondhand

This has an import cut in the top left corner - something, along with the 'import hole punch', that I hated throughout the '80s & '90s esp. as I was buying more vinyl on import than domestically. Apart from that & a few spine scuffs, the cover, inner & vinyl are pretty sound.

Been after an original vinyl version of this for ages (I bought the VHS, CD & tape versions when it came out as they had more songs - sad, I know) but it's sometimes hard to find & when it does appear it can be anywhere between £20 & £50 depending on where you look.

Superb 'live' album set.

REM - Automatic For The People £4 secondhand

Despite the mawkishness & syrupy production on a lot of the songs on Automatic... I think it's a solid pop album. Nicely looked after cover & inner & the vinyl is mint.

(https://scontent-b-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xpa1/t31.0-8/p843x403/10448404_775068002534039_8880645463651107126_o.jpg)

REM - Out Of Time £4 secondhand

I could have had gone nuts buying REM vinyl from this one shop as they had quite a bit in stock at not so bad prices, but I restricted myself to the above & this fellah. The inner sleeve needed some glue on the seam, but apart from that it's a damn fine copy of the album. Another solid left field pop album & Country Feedback remains one of the best throwaway songs they've ever committed to record.

(https://scontent-b-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xap1/t31.0-8/p843x403/10011740_775068085867364_1360062168887970882_o.jpg)

Talking Heads - Speaking In Tongues £2 eBay + £2.50 p&p

German first pressing /  'LENT FOR PROMOTIONAL USE ONLY. Any sale or transfer is prohibited & void. SUBJECT TO RETURN UPON DEMAND BY OWNER WEA RECORDS LTD. Acceptance of this recording constitues agreement of the above.' gold inlay / stamp notice on the back cover.

Another eBay auction that said one thing in the listing which differed wildly from reality. The cover is in top nick, a bit of wear loss to the gold stamp, but that's about it overall. The cover is still quite boxy feeling & hasn't been squashed too much at all. However, the vinyl is a pig's arse. The listing had it at VG++ with some hairline marks, relaity = ice skating rink levels of surface scratching & marks. Needs a massive clean to get rid of some ingrained dirt. Pops & hisses like a fucker, but I have faith I can clean her up right smart like.

I mentioned to the seller that his description was way wide of the mark & without a word he refunded me everything incl. p&p. Which was nice.

We got up earlier than usual and headed to our local boot fair this morning. I was very lucky to go through a pile of great 12"s and LPs - apparently the seller's sister 'used to be a DJ' and was he was selling her unwanted stuff. I got some Bauhaus-related stuff, an Einstürzende Neubauten 12", some nice latin jazz-fusion LPs, a Philip Glass album, a post-punk/industrial comp on Beggars Banquet, a couple of African soukous LPs, some rare acid house 12"s, a Foetus EP, some weird ambient/psy-trance/acid stuff, a Wolfgang Press 12"... I'm so pleased - they are all in near-mint condition, and were all roughly 60p each! Probably the single best car-boot record haul I've ever had! The only gutting thing is that the guy had also done a Saturday car boot, and said he'd sold about 50 of the records then - gawd knows what treasures those buyers got.

But the story behind the story is that I also bought an ION portable turntable that I was assured worked, for the too-good-to-be-true price of £1.80. Got it home and it didn't work. I opened the thing up, poked and prodded, pushed in wobbly components, replaced the heavily-corroded battery connectors... and 90 minutes later I'd got the effing thing working!

Oh, and I got this awesome Wonder Woman book (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Wonder-Woman-Golden-Age-Daniels/dp/081183123X/ref=sr_1_16?ie=UTF8&qid=1403472557&sr=8-16&keywords=golden+wonder+woman) for 50p. Best Sunday ever!

Some recent eBay wins (June/July).

I've been dead lucky recently with some combined wins from people[nb]regular Janes & Joes rather than dealers or retail fronts[/nb] selling large private collections.

Sugarcubes - Here Today Tomorrow Next Week £2 + £2.75p&p eBay, Mint.

I originally bought this, on vinyl, when it came out. I didn't realise this had walked from my collection until about 3-4 months ago. Saw it on eBay by chance at a silly low price (seen mint first presses go for £40) & threw a bid at it. & it stuck. No one else bid for the 9days it was up. Re, as I sometimes say, sult.

Love this record. It's an ambitious sprawling mess & it's delightful for it. I was 50/50 on the shared vocal thing back in my yout, but I appreciate it a hell of a lot more now. I reckon you can hear early indicators of where Bjork went next in this album's music.

(https://scontent-b-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xpf1/t31.0-8/p720x720/10397142_776853742355465_4006581541363919369_o.jpg)

Tom Waits - Bounced Checks £2 + £2.75p&p eBay, German First Press

This is a completist's purchase, if I'm honest. Great tracklist, all told. Unfortunately the album condition was way off the eBay description. I was disappointed but wasn't so fussed because, apart from the ice rink surface marks, which gave the record a lovely warm crackle, the 2 jump scratches (that weren't listed by the seller) weren't that bothersome as they come at a time it's unnoticeable apart from the pop.

I did tell the seller I was a bit disappointed his VG+++ rating of the album as a whole was a bit off & pointed out the scratches, surface marks/noise etc. But thanked him for the auction, which was real cheap dollar .

An hour later I received an email from Paypal with a note from the seller explaining he'd graded by sight & not by playing & so was sorry he was way off with his 'guess'. He'd refunded all costs as a gesture of goodwill & said I could keep the LP or give it to charity (I'm keeping it). That was nice. I didn't ask for a refund.

It does make me wonder, though, because each time this has happened in the past, where a seller leaves off crucial/obvious info & exagerates the condition, then I contact to say the item's not as described, sellers almost always immediately refund everything w/o prior contact. They already know, don't they?

(https://fbcdn-sphotos-g-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xap1/t31.0-8/p843x403/10499479_780690581971781_1981506928002057147_o.jpg)

Daniel Johnston - Fear Yourself £6.50 + £3.90 p&p eBay

Coppertree Records' Daniel Johnston releases are things of beauty. They know how to use white & DJ's art is so fucking vivid in these formats. Lovely records.

This is a near mint copy of the album (first press 2008, un-numbered ltd. edition of 1000), with only a few pressure dents on the edges of the sleeve opening. The vinyl is pristine; the seller stated he'd only played it once. The record feels & looks beautiful. Apparently, a bloke in Cardiff worked on the design/layout of some of these CR/DJ releases.

(https://scontent-a-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xfa1/t31.0-8/p843x403/10382107_780690765305096_1642117319387435720_o.jpg)

Daniel Dale Johnston - Rejected Unknown £8 + £3.50 p&p eBay, Mint.

This is beautiful. Lovely packaging. Double LP, gatefold cover, full colour/folded lyric insert + 2-sided glossy DJ art print. The vinyl is magnificently heavy/solid, too. Gorgeous thing.

(https://scontent-b-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xfp1/t31.0-8/p720x720/10496984_785305491510290_2873309788806539535_o.jpg)

Joanna Newsom - The Milk-Eyed Mender £7 secondhand

Mint. Still in celophane wrapper, but opened for access. Played once, apparently. It's where my love affair with JN starts & ends, I think.

(https://scontent-b-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xpa1/t31.0-8/p720x720/10504866_791444177563088_7270243965387387287_o.jpg)

Talking Heads - Naked Part of a 3 LP bundle on eBay, won for £6.51 in total + £2.80 p&p

First UK press, excellent condition. Fantastic album. This reminds me of an ex who used to put this or Remain In Light on & dance to it while she cooked or cleaned the house. She also used to listen to these albums when she had her period. To control/get rid of the terrible cramps she suffered, she'd bounce up & down on a mini trampoline to the music in her front room.

(https://fbcdn-sphotos-f-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xap1/t31.0-8/p843x403/10514386_791444114229761_8278500105717765537_o.jpg)

Talking Heads - Remain In Light Part of the same 3 LP £6.51 + £2.80 p&p eBay bundle.

First UK press, excellent condition.

The 3rd LP in the bundle was Little Creatures (another the ex would dementedly bop along to while carrying out chores), which was also a first UK press & in superb condition, which wasn't the album I was really after in the deal as I already have a copy but it is in better nick than my original.

(https://scontent-a-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xfa1/t31.0-8/p843x403/10498333_791444550896384_177250136939721755_o.jpg)

REM - Green £4 + £2.80 p&p eBay. UK First Press, Mint.

Stonkingly good condition. Excellent find. Sole bidder, too.

(https://fbcdn-sphotos-a-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xap1/t31.0-8/p843x403/10362773_791444600896379_597666262928008304_o.jpg)

Talking Heads - '77 £2.70 eBay + p&p (part of another 3 auction bundle; combined postage = £4.90)

First UK pressing, immaculate vinyl, sleeve = near mint+.

This auction had been on-line for 14 days & someone else had been the sole bidder at 99p throughout. At 30secs to go I threw in a speculative £3 bid, thinking I wouldn't get anywhere near the other bidder's top end given the record, & I won.

I did miss out on one other Talking Heads LP as part of this bundle, the double live The Name Of This Band Is... first UK press in gorgeous condition, as I was too slow to react to a final bid in the dying seconds. It went for £2.90. Nevermind.

This purchase continues my obsession with Talking Heads on vinyl. Replacing a few I've owned in the past but mostly upgrading[nb]yes, that's correct. Upgrading. To vinyl.[/nb] from the cassettes & CDs I bought in the '80s & '90s.

(https://fbcdn-sphotos-h-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xfp1/t31.0-8/p843x403/10382432_792673444106828_3871702908519170574_o.jpg)

Talking Heads - Fear Of Music £1.24 eBay + p&p (part of same 3 auction bundle; combined postage = £4.90)

First UK press. Vinyl is near mint, a few passages of surface noise & a couple of very loud pops, but overall a lovely example. Sleeve is, as you can see, a bit loved, but the printed lyric inner's in very good nick.

I was the only bidder, with a £3 cap, for 13 days 59mins 30secs, when another bidder bumped it from 99p to £1.24 & then gave up.

Fantastic album. Eno's all over it.

(https://scontent-b-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xap1/t31.0-8/p843x403/10497176_792673644106808_7015834442471495836_o.jpg)

Liz Phair - Exile In Guyville £13 eBay + p&p (part of same 3 auction bundle; combined p&p = £4.90)

1st UK press, inners & vinyl & outer in NM+ condition. Plays beautifully.

Been a Liz Phair fan since Whip Smart came out. I remember getting handed Exile on CD to listen to by my then Boss (good man, he knew his indie shit) while at the same time I was listening to Happiness by Lisa Germano & Drugstore's s/t.

Those 3 albums were on back to back repeat for months. It's funny how albums like this seem to cngregate around times of relationship strife. Those 3 LPs will always remind me of a certain person & period that got a bit mad. 20s, yo.

This is a big find for me. I was only saying a few weeks ago that this album was towards the top of my 'must have' list but it was almost impossible to find a first press & almost impossible to find a UK first press at a sensible price.

Then this lovely fellah put this up on eBay with a starting price of £4.99. I was sole bidder, with a £15 cap, up until the final 20mins when another bidder threw a handful of bids at it up until the dying seconds.

I was genuinely on the edge of my seat as the seconds counted down as I didn't want to let this go, but also I didn't want to start spending stupid money just to keep it.

I worked out the shipping cost for the 3 records (4 if you factor in Exile's a double) would amount to not very much per record, so reasoned I could go to £20[nb]I've seen this go for upwards of £50 on-line[/nb] if necessary & felt the overall total cost, spread across the 3 albums, would be justifiable esp. given the low costs on the other 2.  But I didn't have to worry as the other bidder stopped shy of £13.

I love this record.

Fuck me, I've seen some of those Playtime Series in a few charity shops around town. Nice colour.

Have a few nice eBay finds on their way, incl. a pristine first press of Brian Eno & David Byrne's My Life in the Bush of Ghosts which incl. the later replaced Qu'ran track.

Also picked the following up in a secondhand store in the city last week. Been eyeing the Tom Waits for a long time & finally caved in.

Beck - One Foot In The Grave

Original K Records press, which is nigh on impossible to get your hands on, especially with complete inners, & I think[nb]because I don't know if this is just bullwiki[/nb] there was a legal falling out[nb]which may be tied in with his falling out with Geffen & Bong Load[/nb] which meant K Records are now no longer able to re-release this album in its original form/tracklist etc.[nb]as I say, probably bullwiki as they had a hand in the anniversary expanded release a while back[/nb]

They Might Be Giants - Don't Let's Start

Compilation album from '89 on One Little Indian released only in the UK & West Germany & eventually released in the States as Miscellaneous T (with an additonal track).

Kramer - The Guilt Trip Tripple LP

I love the Shimmy Disc label (as has been mentioned before) & have been trying to replace stolen or upgrade from CD to fill gaps in my collection for a few decades. Before I saw this LP in this secondhand store I'd spent 3hrs digging about in I'd found about 8 Shimmy Disc/Kramer-related albums/artists in the stacks, which is unusual around these parts.  I didn't get any of them, in the end, as I either already had them or they were second prints on different labels post-SD. But, as I was paying for the rest of the stuff I'd dug up, I spied this Kramer LP on a shelf behind the counter.

I asked if it was for sale & the guy said it had only just come in & they hadn't even looked at the vinyl properly so they had no idea what it was or what it was worth. But, with a quick Google/eBay search, he & his senior colleague said I could have it for £30. I took a listen to some of the tracks to inspect the vinyl[nb]bit of surface noise, few skips here & there on some randomly chosen tracks[nb]on closer inspection when I got back home I found they were dried liquid marks so cleaned them off & all's good as new[/nb][/nb], inspected the inners/labels/box[nb]moisture damage/wrinkling on two labels & to all inner sleeves[/nb] & offered £20 & they accepted.

When I got home & looked at it properly I noticed that there were 4 records in the box & not 3 as there should have been. Shimmy Disc albums tend to avoid label info & stick mostly to the logo & the side identifier (A or B etc.), so it's sometimes not easy to quickly find out what the record is. I checked the run off & found a scratched SD catalog number & realised it was an original US press of Damon & Naomi's More Sad Hits (Shimmy 055) in exquisite condition (minus its cover, obviously). So, score.

(https://scontent-b-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xpa1/t31.0-8/p843x403/10498644_793445280696311_5471376284265188929_o.jpg)

Tom Waits - Bone Machine

This had been sitting in the racks of a secondhand store for 2 months. When I saw it was still there a month after first spotting it I said to myself I would buy it, with some haggling, if it was still there in another month's time. Last Monday I rang the store & asked & it was.

Cover's a wee bit loved, but the inner & vinyl are gorgeously preserved.

Eno/Byrne's My Life In The Bush Of Ghosts

1st press/original version

Finally arrived today.

Groundbreaking LP & controversial one, too. This copy contains the track "Qu'ran", which features samples of Qur'anic recital. This was removed at the request of the Islamic Council of Great Britain & replaced on all subsequent presses/re-releases.

The cover has a small tear at the exact point you would open the sleeve, so you can tell it's been loved. The vinyl's in stonking condition (hardly any surface marks / noise; there is one pit of dirt that needs a clean or a few plays to dislodge. Other than that, £10 incl. p&p very well spent.

Some great bargains via eBay & secondhand record stores recently.

Breeders - Pod £5 secondhand store

I've been looking for this on original vinyl for about a year & have had about 5 near misses on eBay when trying to buy this. All previous auctions ended up in the £25-£30 region. I was just bimbling about a secondhand store today, looking through the alphabetical piles, when I spotted this. Then I spotted the £5 sticker. Then I checked the inner & vinyl & was ridiculously excited when I saw they're in top nick. Result!

LOVE this album. Love it. Everything about it is fucking ace.

Yeah, for me this is by far their best work. I adore this album from start to finish and prefer this sound with Tanya Donnelly and yer woman from The Perfect Disaster on bass.

But I had no idea that my vinyl could sell for anything more than a couple of quid and now I realise I may have quite a haul of records that I would like to sell so I can downsize (I have had to move house three times in the last 18 months). What is the best route for selling vinyl? I used to just stroll into Rough Trade or the Record and Tape Exchange in Camden. Is ebay worth it, given the reach it has?

I've been able to pick up a few Beatles 7"s from a local second-hand shop recently:

We Can Work it Out
Ticket to Ride
Please Please Me
A Hard Day's Night
Can't Buy Me Love
She Loves You
I Feel Fine
Get Back

50p a throw, which is reasonable compared to the usual £3/£4 they seem to go for. They're all in generic sleeves, though, so the trick now is to buy records by other artists with the correct Parlophone sleeves ...

The same place also had a decent-looking copy of Not the Nine O'Clock News' "The Ayatollah Song", which I hadn't realised had come out as a single.

If you're willing to put the time in & have the patience waiting for stuff to sell then definitely. There's always someone like me looking for '80s & '90s indie & alt.music. But, of course, you could always start by listing what you have here & seeing if anyone is interested in what you got ;o)

always worth checking the numbers on them - on the right hand side, if they start with P-R or DP like this one,
it means they are Export copies and worth a hell of a  lot more than stock copies,

Although I only use ebay to sell, I do think that Discogs is the best, particularly now that Ebay is limiting people to 20 free listings a month AND charging 10% on postage costs. Discogs charge less and you can leave your stock up as long as you want. I rarely buy stuff off ebay any more.

I have tons, but I don't know what is worth money and what isn't. I guess I could look at the completed sales section of ebay to get an idea of how much specific vinyl goes for. Some of it is well played, although I had a OCD fetish for playing them once, taping them, and then only using the cassettes, they still don't look mint.

I also stupidly stored them vertically once, and it gave them this circle impression on the sleeve which looks permanent. So annoying.

Although I only use ebay to sell, I do think that Discogs is the best, particularly now that Ebay is limiting people to 20 free listings a month AND charging 10% on postage costs. Discogs charge less and you can leave your stock up as long as you want. I rarely buy stuff off ebay any more.

Not really. It's mostly because I like to list them and (hopefully) sell them all at a particular time. If I list them for 7 days on a Saturday, I know that they'll sell (or otherwise) the following week and that gives me time to send invoices, receive payment and parcel them up in time for taking to work on Monday. Apparently items ending on Sundays get the most money but I like doing my stuff when the football's on. I really enjoy it, saddo that I am.

I'm sure there's a local 2nd hand record shop that would offer you a lump sum. Where do you live? If you are thinking of selling, I would definitely do it now as so much stuff is getting the 'deluxe' vinyl reissue nowadays. Stuff released in the mid nineties up to maybe mid 2000s seems to be quite collectable as many seemed to spurn vinyl in favour of CDs back then, so most LPs came in limited numbers.
Title: Re: Recent Vinyl Finds
Post by: Puce Moment on July 18, 2014, 07:53:07 PM
Yeah, I think I would prefer that as well. I'm not in any rush to sell them, but I have really busy periods at work and would prefer control over when I am likely to be dealing with emails, parcelling, sending, fielding complaints, etc.

The last second-hand record shop closed down here a couple of years ago - the nearest for me would be Liverpool, Chester, Manchester - but that would still be a bit of travel and I have about 200 records that I am willing to sell. A lot of it is late 1980s indie, experimental, 4AD, Creation, noisy stuff, and would not have been available on CD. I have all the original My Bloody Valentine vinyl, including Geek, but those EPs got played to fuck by me.
Title: Re: Recent Vinyl Finds
Post by: holyzombiejesus on July 18, 2014, 08:14:04 PM
If you contact Vinyl Exchange in Manchester, I'm pretty sure that they would come and collect. They used to be pretty stingy with what they offered but they've really improved of late, certainly offering the best prices in Manchester. You could email them a list and they'd give you a rough idea of what they'd offer? I think the guy who buys that stuff is called Richard, so ask for him if you do ring/ email.

EDIT: If you've got that MBV EP with Lovelee Sweet Darlene on, please sell it to me for a reasonable price...

Nice one, I really appreciate it. You managed to find the one MBV record other than Sunny Sundae Smile that I don't have after offloading in my 1998 'sell records or die of hunger' purge. I also got rid of a first pressing of 20 Jazz Funk greats, and some other industrial stuff, at Rough Trade for a really decent price.

I then went to the Record & Tape Exchange who gave me £200 for 60 records. I regret that one, as it included at least a dozen or so which would get me over £20 on ebay now. But needs must.

A man who lived nearby was killed in a road accident recently and as I knew that he was an avid record collector, I popped round last night to see if I could make a bit of beer money. His grieving wife initially seemed quite horrified when I explained the purpose of my visit but after a bit of forceful cajoling, I managed to get a fair few bargains, the pick of which was this. I told her it was knackered and that she was lucky I was giving her anything at all, so she seemed quite pleased with the £3 I offered her, although the fact that she now has to provide for 3 young children must have informed her decision. Anyway, £3!

I'm going back tonight to plunder his Northern Soul and punk collections. It's the funeral tomorrow and if I coincide my visit with the kiddies' bath time she may be even more distracted than last night (I think she may have taken valium or something).

this was my best find today, a 78rpm of The Kings Speech from 1935

it came in a Scottish record shop sleeve too

A side question. Are these Crosley turntables any good?

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Crosley-Briefcase-Three-Speed-Portable-Turntable/dp/B00990Z20U

Or should I get an Audio Technica AT-LP60?

I have a shitload of old vinyl and nothing to play it on.  I've never been an audiophile so I just want something portable around the £100 mark.
Title: Re: Recent Vinyl Finds
Post by: NattyDread on August 21, 2014, 11:39:24 AM
I'm pretty sure the Crossley thing will be crap and I don't think the Audio Technica will be much better. They're mostly plastic and will come with a non-adjustable cartridge/stylus that's about as basic as possible. Might be that you don't need much more than that, but I wouldn't go forking out £130 on one (which isn't portable anyway). Another few quid and you could have something that'll make nice noises.

Dooh, is that just him doing songs? Nobody seems to have any of his stand-up material, I don't know if I remember his act as I would probably have been too young when he was on TV but a lot of people seem to vaguely remember this guy Spook - Slither etc but the only thing available is that weird advert he did.

RIP Roy Jay.

"Roy Jay exposed himself on stage at a show and then stormed off stage in Jersey in the 80's because nobody laughed at his jokes, though he denied being drunk, and this spelt the end of his TV career. He was allegedly convicted for his behaviour."

"It seems long after his TV career, Roy toured in the US, supporting P.J. Proby in 2003 before ending up in Benidorm and opening a club. He continued his comedy exploits and died in an Alicante hospital, penniless, in December 2007. His funeral was paid for by a local businessman (a good friend of Roy) after his body laid unclaimed for 2 weeks following his death. The funeral was at Villajojosa Crematorium on January 22nd 2008."

:-(

Spook!

Oh Roy.. if he was convicted for getting his nob out at least they didn't have to make him change clothes. Was his act always along with music? And he can't seem to decide what his accent is meant to be. Proby was another notorious alcoholic, had to drink for his stage fright so I've heard, that tour can't have been fun, of course there was his remarkable comeback at the Landsdowne, Blackpool (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V7nfI1KtfmE).

You definitely have better car boot sales & charity shops near you. A really excellent Oxfam, with a whole second floor dedicated to vinyl, moved recently & lost most of their magnificent vinyl collection in the downsize. To be fair, they did spend a week before the move selling buy one record get one free. But, the move has meant a loss of the floor/space & the records now only occupy two shelf units.

Did manage to strike gold in a few secondhand stores, mind, handsomely adding to the '80s / '90s indie & Prince piles. Have also scored some beauts on eBay too, incl. a ropey but playable copy of Skin's Shame Humility Revenge for nowt.

A handful of things I've picked up recently & very cheaply at boot sales, secondhand & charity shops & ebay. In a couple of s/h shops I was lucky enough to arrive as each were starting to price up collections of '80s & '90s indie & a magnificent amount of Prince 12"s they'd just bought.

Amazingly, I bought Sit Down, Come Home & YAHO back from the same shop I sold them to in the mid-late '90s. I found these in 2 plastic wall displays, tucked behind a stack of records & CDs that had been placed in front of & obscuring them over the years, where they had been put up for display/sale the day I sold them. I could confirm they were mine as they had my original purchase dates written in pencil in my handwriting inside the covers, which was something I did back in the '90s when I was cataloguing my then substantial (pre-sell off) collection. I got a mighty discount as a result.

This morning in a charity shop I scored a Lebanon-issued 45 of The Beatles' Ob-La-Di in excellent condition for 50p. I can't yet find it online anywhere, which is always exciting!

Edit: Found it. Coo, interesting: "Vinyl records pressed in Lebanon are extremely rare and very hard to find items in any condition, produced for a few years in the late 1960's until forced to stop by the onset of civil war in 1975. All the international artists and bands were popular in Lebanon, and only a few copies survived the last thirty years in very good condition, including limited editions of multi-colored 7" singles and unique white label samples for radio and club DJs."

Sadly my 7" is without the original sleeve. Still a happy find!

This morning in a charity shop I scored a Lebanon-issued 45 of The Beatles' Ob-La-Di in excellent condition for 50p. I can't yet find it online anywhere, which is always exciting!

Stick that on eBay I reckon. Buy It Now of... £10,000? Let people make offers too though.

Note: A Lebanese Hey Jude with the sleeve went for £68 recently. Still, chance your arm with a ridiculous Buy It Now.

Nice haul, esp. the Sex Pistols set.

The one Prince LP I don't own is Graffiti Bridge, mainly because I didn't think much of it when it came out & the film is arse.

Some recent finds. Almost all from charity shops with a couple of eBay bargains.

£1. Shelleyan Orphan - Helleborine

(https://scontent-b-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xfp1/t31.0-8/q81/p843x403/10582768_829120003795505_7447710313772104968_o.jpg)

£1. BBC 1922 - 1972 Double vinyl

A sort of highlights package from 50yrs of radio broadcasts by the BBC (1922-1972) with a narrator/voice over throughout. Fascinating & begging to be ripped & re-used out of context

(https://scontent-b-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xap1/t31.0-8/q81/p843x403/10694380_829119950462177_3598958010894782241_o.jpg)

£1. The Beatles Concerto I'm not quite sure what role George Martin plays in the making of this record, other than being in a photograph with all the key players listed in the album credits (GM's name does not appear) & writing an endorsement blurb on the back cover. Reinforces the Big Train/Eldon treatment of the man & his myth-making.

Yeah thanks, I'm gradually getting all the prince ones. I need to put my stuff in order so I know which ones I'm missing. Glad I got Never Mind The Bollocks, years and years ago I saw it and didn't even enquire how much it was, regretted ever since.

Stuff from today, 25p each.

my mum came up trumps on Sunday, she found a box of 45's

Not knowing what was what but realising they "looked nice"
she offered him £2 the lot and the deal was done, there were loads more too!

on first glance I assumed this was related to Princess Diana (it's not) and that it was
the lovely Nicole Kidman on the cover (it isn't) however that is Patsy Kensit in the small pic

this was one of a number of stage albums in the same box, it was curious as
it's a promo copy with plain labels and apart from being a book and a 1923 movie
it seems there is little else out there about this - Denis Norden (92) is still going though

Post by: DrunkCountry on October 09, 2014, 01:52:35 PM
Had some sweet finds over the past month+ at a couple of local car boot sales & from the belly of my favourite local secondhand record shop. The owner recently had a bit of a tidy up, such as was possible given the magnitude of his stockalypse, & uneartherd piles of superb decades old/forgotten stock purchases.  Also, after decades of going to this place, it was only a few weeks ago that it occured to me I could ask the owner to put stuff to one side for me. Up until then it had never crossed my mind that I could reserve stuff, rather than 'sportingly' leaving it to chance & the possibility of another punter coming in & spotting something before I returned.

Bryan Ferry - These Foolish Things 20p Car Boot. Cover = knackered, needed re-gluing & a thorough clean (some kind of sticky black molasses type shit all over it); vinyl was filthy & needed a deep clean but eventually came up rather spiffing & skip free. There's a small but pronounced heat warp on edge/section of first track (both sides, obvs), which amazingly doesn't affect play.

(https://fbcdn-sphotos-e-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xaf1/t31.0-8/p843x403/1899553_841072335933605_125084460957827290_o.jpg)

Spoltlight on Ray Charles - 50p Car Boot. 1962 release. Near immaculate solid cardboard cover, still in clingfilm; vinyl = mint, looks like it has never been played.

(https://fbcdn-sphotos-h-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xfp1/t31.0-8/p843x403/10704004_841072242600281_1024258267758250674_o.jpg)

Best of The Beach Boys Vol 2. 25p Car Boot. 1965. Cover = bit knackered/stained with red dye/wine across back/front top corner & edge sellotape, etc.; vinyl = seen better days but plays marvelously with a not too loud crackle.

(https://fbcdn-sphotos-a-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xfa1/t31.0-8/p843x403/10697150_841072382600267_6961518958145335606_o.jpg)

The Cotton Club - 50p Car Boot. Early '80s compilation of 78rpm transfers of Cotton Club recordings from '20s & '30s. Immaculate condition. Originally owned by the Mid Glamorgan County Libraries & it was in the library protective sleeve which included the original library stamp cards (last loaned 25th May 1996).

(https://fbcdn-sphotos-b-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xap1/t31.0-8/p843x403/10333743_841072229266949_8259879142789000595_o.jpg)

Solid Gold Soul - 75p Car Boot. 1966 mono Atlantic Records compilation. Cover = not bad at all, except for the sellotaped edges; vinyl = seen better days but plays with very minimal pops/clicks & one jump at the very end of a fade out of one track. This is a fantastic compilation, esp. the Joe Tex tracks.

(https://scontent-a-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xaf1/t31.0-8/p843x403/10712392_841072669266905_5053097350013128316_o.jpg)

Joni Mitchell - Ladies Of The Canyon 50p Car Boot. Cover = not bad if a bit handled-stained (I love the added blank Audio Magazine Level Indicator sticker); vinyl = needed a super industrial clean as the grooves were thick with some sticky black residue + a bit of warping on edge but cleaned up it plays very nicely.

(https://fbcdn-sphotos-b-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xap1/t31.0-8/p640x640/10679939_841072712600234_7453059558618926586_o.jpg)

Songs Of Leonard Cohen - £1 Car Boot.  I think this is a UK first press — all info on cover/labels/matrix/runout corresponds, but the cover doesn't look right.  Cover = not bad, needed some re-gluing. A bit loved but overall far better than some 1990s records I've got. Vinyl = good to very good. One skip on side 2, but I think that might disappear with a proper clean.

(https://fbcdn-sphotos-f-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xap1/t31.0-8/p843x403/10700132_841072765933562_955148715710665653_o.jpg)

Gong - Angel's Egg £4 secondhand. Original gatefold, first press; cover = excellent/near mint; vinyl = excellent (5 pops on side one just as one track fades out).

(https://fbcdn-sphotos-b-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xap1/t31.0-8/p720x720/10648990_841073125933526_7526058168380111589_o.jpg)

Indigo Girls - Nomads Indians Saints £2 secondhand. Cover/inner = not bad at all; vinyl = excellent

REM - Document £4 secondhand. UK first press. Cover/inner/vinyl = mint. Got this to replace a really ratty copy I've had for decades.

(https://scontent-a-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xaf1/t31.0-8/p843x403/10714517_841073312600174_2817618387987236012_o.jpg)

Looper - Up A Tree £2.50 secondhand. Cover = slight poke through on top edge, apart from that it's pretty excellent; vinyl = excellent, also.

(https://scontent-a-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xfa1/t31.0-8/p843x403/10485253_841073402600165_6099935411205282756_o.jpg)

The Unicorns - Who Will Cut Our Hair When We're Gone? £3.50 secondhand. First press/original Alien8 Recordings label. Cover/inner/vinyl = Mint. Very nice find.

(https://fbcdn-sphotos-g-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xfa1/t31.0-8/p720x720/10694248_841073505933488_3553432278759396541_o.jpg)

JAMS/KLF - Chill Out bootleg, £4 secondhand. Cover/vinyl = mint. It isn't the well known 'French' bootleg that was released sometime in the late '90s or early 2000's, which shares the reversed cover design but has very specific (to that release/copy) typos in the song titles & silent gaps between each 'track'. Have no idea where or when my version was released - it *might* be the other well known bootleg, possibly produced/'released' in the Netherlands?, which was released after the 'French' version, but I don't have any details of it to compare.

Nice find on the Unicorns front!

If that Gong LP has b&w Virgin labels it's worth a fair chunk o' change.

Never heard of them, wasn't sure if it was an early pressing with a unique sleeve or if someone had made a sleeve for an album that was missing one. (According to Wikipedia it is of a limited run and would have came with random inserts, this one was without)

I went to an auction in town yesterday as there were no car boots, they had literally thousands
of albums all piled up at £1 each. It was first come first served, there were some I got just coz
they looked interesting by the sleeves but I came away very happy (there were loads more too
but these are the pick of the lot)

Fuck me. Nice one.

Yeah I know right, condition ain't bad either, the inlay was included but one of the corners was folded over at some point. The one I picked it up in usually has nothing of interest, in fact the last thing I picked up from there was Huey Lewis & The News - Sports a long time ago, I may have got Blood On The Tracks from there too.. But yeah, neither are that exciting.

Nice, is the Who one still as sought after as it used to be? - I can't tell if that says stereo or mono in the corner. Which pressing of In the Court of the Crimson King is it?

Well still alright for a quid! Ah thought as much about Brunswick but wasn't 100%, I picked up the virgin repress at some point thinking it was the valuable one, bit disappointed but it didn't cost much and was in great condition.

Some Beatlesy odds and sods from the second-hand place I go to in my lunch hour every now and then: an Irish "A Hard Day's Night", an American "Give Peace a Chance" and an American late 70s Capitol reissue of "Imagine". 50p each.

You'll have to imagine what they look like, I'm afraid.

I found KC & The Who etc in an auction, they knock them out at £1 a pop on a  first come first served
basis so its not strictly an auction. I wandered round some charity shops in Milton Keynes yesterday
& bought really well too so stuff is out there - if you go hoping to find good vinyl at weekends forget it
as they are cleaned out by cunts like me mid-week

picked up these three excellent song sheets in a charity shop earlier today, the lady said they are quite old so wanted
a fiver for them and that she might have more out the back and to come back on Monday

some odd bits I found at the re-cycle depot yesterday, 7" are 50p + LP's a £1

best find of the day was this beautiful 12" single by Macedonian group Anastasia





(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/DSC09135_zpsc832bd4a.jpg)

another nice find was the original UK pressing of this album, the track-listing says it all really

Got these in the last week, all good nick and £2.99 each:
(https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7509/15718474805_f31769fea4.jpg)
I got the Mental As Anything debut mainly for the excellence that is 'The Nips Are Getting Bigger'.  Aside for their Hit, haven't heard anything else by them.

Plus a few more:
Carl Wilson's rubbish solo debut I bought for the sake of it - two quid
Bob Dylan's Blonde On Blonde - not great condition and I don't particularly care for him, but - a quid
Sheila E - S/T (one of the 'Prince ones') - 50p

And a few other odds and ends, including a weird South African issue of Fleetwood Mac's "Rumours" that feels more like a bootleg than an official release, and a lovely US 12" of Sister Sledge - He's The Greatest Dancer c/w We Are Family. I also bought sachets of both butterscotch AND strawberry Angel Delight.

I guess it's a sign that the local Polish community in town are culling their collections now
as I am finding a lot more European vinyl in the charity shops. I bumped into a guy on his way
back from a shop this morning clutching a pile of weird Polish folk and psych albums (as well as a copy
of This is Magic Mixture!) which he had just found in the local Red Cross, by the time I got there it
was only 7"s left but there are more LP's going out on Thursday apparently. Among these mostly mid 60's
singles were some original Jerry Lee Lewis and Jackie Wilson discs, but these were the more unusual finds.

I picked up 3 x 'how to stop smoking' LP's this morning and as I'm posting them here I will add a few other
health related albums as they go alongside them quite nicely, but I have had these heart records for yonks.
This first one is really good (especially side 2) and it also has some sleeve notes which wouldn't get published today!

seems there was a run of these LP's but this is the first I've seen of them, Medi-Disc Records 1970

I really miss my weekly trawl through the charities and record shops. Since moving from the city, I don't get much chance to rummage and tend to just buy recent stuff online.
A nearby junk shop came up trumps today though. Found these in a pile of sound effects records (which once upon a time I would've picked up - never to play).
All stone cold mint and still shiny. £7 for all 3.

have picked up some nice bits + bobs this week, a run of Van Morrison
and Roy Harper albums along with these records, it helped that 2 of my
regular ladies in the charity shops have been keeping stuff by for me, so I bless them!

(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/DSC09457.jpg)

best find of the week was this very odd album of Communist Party folk songs
issued in 1979 on a red label of course, gotta love those song titles!

(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/DSC09458.jpg)


(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/DSC09460.jpg)
also in the same box was this 1970 album by the ex Monkee man


(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/DSC09459.jpg)
a nice pair of early 70's issues by the great Brazillian guitarist



(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/DSC09455.jpg)
they may wear cheesy suits their music is pretty good, especially 'Jam If You Jamming'




(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/DSC09453.jpg)

I have a yellow vinyl copy of this LP but it's disappeared somewhere...
I'll have to keep this one as it's blue, I don't think it comes in any other colour

(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/DSC09454.jpg)


(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/DSC09450.jpg)

I took a chance on this and am glad I did as it's got a lovely gentle Jazz vibe
to it and it came with a sheet music insert - a private pressing 12" from 1988

(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/DSC09451.jpg)




(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/DSC09461.jpg)

I paid £1.50 for this (more than I usually do, haha) I assume it's a promo vinyl issue for one of the NME
cassettes they issued in the 80's - several of which I still keep despite not owning a tape deck for over 20 years.

Bunch of stuff from boot sales, 2ndhand & charity shops from past month or so.

50p Car Boot Sale; Great record, fantastic condition. Bought from a guy as he was packing up; he originally listed this (& the others I got from him) for a lot more than he sold it to me.

50p Car Boot Sale; Cover's wrecked, but inner & vinyl are pretty decent (bit crackly in places & has a slight warp on one edge, but overall very passable).
(https://scontent-a-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xpa1/v/t1.0-9/s720x720/10407856_861296273911211_9067012141847785119_n.jpg?oh=9f3d63112835ff1b5fc6a01a3c488195&oe=54D2B911)

50p Car Boot Sale; Double LP. Cover's original paper thin style & very moisture floppy, but the vinyl's excellent. Lovely orchestral & choral renditions of popular songs from the time (1960).
(https://scontent-b-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xfp1/v/t1.0-9/s720x720/10155064_861296480577857_5842170850213397698_n.jpg?oh=fc9c93eda821e943699a0b20a845217b&oe=54D7F5C1)

50p Car Boot Sale; Great condition all round (cover's a bit love-scuffed on the edges) & the vinyl is very clean & free from too many pops or clicks. I'd never heard this record prior to getting this.

50p Car Boot Sale; I have no idea who the signature is on the front, but inside the cover I found a flyer for a Captain Beaky stage show so I'm guessing it might be someone from that. Record's in great nick.

£1 car boot sale, original European press; the gatefold jacket (esp. the inside) has suffered from a good few years of joint rolling & beer spills + someone hacking away at the original price sticker on the front. It's a bit battered, all told. Vinyl's in need of a deep deep clean & has an ice rink top coat of surface scratches. First few tracks on first 2 sides crackle like a softwood fire, but the remainder are in pretty decent condition & generally quiet/clean.

A very occassional 'record fair' came to these parts today (well, an hour away) so I thought I'd take the chance to offload some doublers and shite and maybe get a few bits that I'd actually play. Did alright considering the bloke (yep, just one bloke and one table of vinyl at this 'fair') didn't bring the Funk, or for that matter the Soul, Reggae or Jazz. Mostly Mojo rock all the way.
Mustn't grumble at these though. Re-ish on the Can (and MBV I think).

No massive bargains, but when you're trading stuff it doesn't seem to count as money. £40 all in - Portishead - £17, Can - £13, MBV - £10 (bootleg I think). If it wasn't for trade credit I'd probably have left the Portishead but I'm glad I didn't. Thought I'd had my fill of them, but it's superb.

Not bad for a bunch of crusty shite that I never listened to (late floyd).

of these for the once very popular Black & White Minstrel Show

Some charity shop finds & some bizarre coincidences from the past couple of weeks.

20p charity shop; bit of surface crackle here & there pre-clean. Sleeve's yellowed a bit with age & has ringwear on the reverse, but all in all a decent example.

20p charity shop; knackered front sleeve from sticker removal, vinyl's crackly & needs a serious clean but overall this is an excellent record.
(https://fbcdn-sphotos-f-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xfp1/v/t1.0-9/s720x720/10403688_873253249382180_4211905220934568204_n.jpg?oh=c825c49a48e96d16a72e21f395048722&oe=55169428&__gda__=1427768600_d08773e283db280c34288d0bfada27a5)

20p charity shop; don't think I've ever owned a Vangelis record before. CoF might be the cliche choice, but it is still a great soundtrack. Vinyl is in perfect nick, hardly played by the looks of it.
(https://scontent-a-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xpa1/v/t1.0-9/s720x720/10348292_873253279382177_4322721213172534723_n.jpg?oh=47919a21c74f53fe0bd65c4e0b9b0437&oe=5504489E)

£2.50 (different) charity shop; sleeve's NM, inner has a small edge split, vinyl = the bollocks. Speaking with the bloke behind the counter, who had no idea who Throwing Muses are, it seems I missed a whole pile of '80s & '90s records, brought in by a relative of someone who recently died, by about 3days. This & the PIL LP[nb]plus the Kristin Hersh debut solo Hips & Makers, which I've yet to listen to/clean etc.[/nb] were pretty much the only things left from it. It was only a few weeks ago that I was discussing TM & their back catalog / proposed re-releases with the label owner who put out TM's last LP. About a week after that conversation I found this.
(https://fbcdn-sphotos-c-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xaf1/v/t1.0-9/s720x720/1505518_873253289382176_519638033256884865_n.jpg?oh=991e635ab230027f007abbec28f2759f&oe=55042CC8&__gda__=1426383500_bf4b9e501097ece63c346299349492fa)

£2.50 charity shop - same place as I found Hunkpapa; again, it was maybe a week ago I was extolling the virtues of this record (+ PIL's ALBUM & HAPPY?), as part of a solid experimental pop trilogy by PIL, to a young broadcaster friend. Then, on Monday last, I spotted it alongside the Throwing Muses LP Hunkpapa from the same charity donation. The guy behind the counter said he hadn't realised it was 'Johnny Rotten & The Sex Pistols' when we were talking about it. He'd never heard of PIL & didn't recognise JL on the cover. Sleeve = mint, inner = stained with something that looks like nicotine splashes(?), vinyl = superb. Sweet & serendipitous find.
(https://fbcdn-sphotos-h-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xfp1/v/t1.0-9/s720x720/10247348_873253396048832_2438446222196466938_n.jpg?oh=07d3a9b384bec3de78f01ef627546b07&oe=550F01FE&__gda__=1423346894_f9d4e7ad82111cbcc02038b7b28fca7e)

Based on these lovely coincidences of finding records shortly after I mention/recommend them to people, I'd like to find a Trout Mask Replica first press next, please, Charity Gods.

Some recent & some very recent finds. Bunch of stuff from a car boot sale this morning. A bloke I've been back to 5 times over the past year (& bought from each time) is replenishing his stock of vinyl way too quickly to be an original owner in my books. He's always on the same corner triple-sized pitch & generally sells antiquy tat that people seem to snap up. His records to begin with were a bit dog rough. They're now getting way better in quality & more & more up to date (well, within last 30yrs - as opposed to last 40-60yrs). He's got a lock-up full of it somewhere, I reckon. A few of them have masses of the same kind of item in on-site lock ups that they spend their whole adult lives selling off in car boot sales, apparently, according to a couple of the regulars. Anyway, was very pleased with what I came away with. Lots of stuff I'm interested in. Couple of secondhand buys here, too, from a recent steal of a bulk purchase.

Gotta credit the missus for spotting the Japan & Divine stuff. I was busy looking in one box when another bloke (who got there before me & had a handful of things I would have snapped up) was going through his last, when the missus spotted the Japan things he skipped past. The seller's quality has gone up & his prices have come down. Most go for 20p now, some 50p. I'm going to go back next week & have a word to see if he does have a lock-up & if I can go & have a rummage/come to a deal.

Me & the missus went to another car boot sale at an ungodly hour this morning &, even though I wasn't there for 'general' browsing etc.[nb]we are in the middle of buying the house we've been renting for the last 20yrs (rented off someone I knew at mate's rate knowing he'd sell it at some point & we'd have first refusal; 20yrs later...) &, because we purposefully let the gardens overgrow etc. over the years, we're now clearing everything out (incl. a cellar full of junk & shite that's laid untouched for 40 or so years). Given the jungle & winter weather we have to contend with, we needed to find some really robust outdoor water/weather proofs for the missus & decided car boot was the cheapest way to go. We ended up buying a Network Rail hi-vis foul weather Gortex set, which does the job perfectly[/nb], I managed to snaffle a handful of nice things.

a box came into the tip shop last week all in brown card sleeves and was just dumped on top of
a pile of crap LP's and I went through and pulled 52 out - a whole run of Kinks including 'You Still Want Me'
which I swear I knew nothing about. Along with Stones, Screaming Lord Sutch, The Undertakers and I offered
him a fiver for the lot and he said yes as he knows fuckall about records - there were original Stones & Kinks
& Searchers albums too but they were 50p each - it restores my faith that stuff is still out there if you dig*

*or just happen to be bloody lucky!

Satisfying chunk of vinyl from the stack of stuff bought (but not cleaned / listened to) over the past few weeks—month. I've almost gone through that backlog now & am gearing up to visit 3 local junk shops / flea markets this weekend that I only recently found out about. At least one of them has a large wall of shelves filled with vinyl & Christ knows what's there in total. I've seen a few photos & it looks immense / a full day's digging, I reckon.

50p charity shop; Green 7" vinyl; #3092 of 10,000; Excellent nick except for damage to sleeve.
(https://scontent-b-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xap1/v/t1.0-9/1378776_878017612239077_3400066671757501600_n.jpg?oh=b17f079b047e28c6a8e07777241e0917&oe=550C9EDE)

50p charity shop 7"; Perfect nick, except for the blank price sticker which is stuck on with bastard glue & will take the sleeve print with it if peeled off. I did try but I could see immediately this wasn't going to budge. Any tips, anyone?
(https://scontent-a-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xpa1/v/t1.0-9/10410637_878017582239080_6649806388721826116_n.jpg?oh=676b06a86235e4c44d15d7156ffc4efd&oe=5510B901)

PIL 7"s 50p each, charity shop; Bit of age / creasing to the sleeves but vinyl of each is excellent.

50p each charity shop, 12"s; Good condition; few creases & price sticker mark/tear. The missus is a big EC&tA fan, so these were picked up for her.

20p charity shop 12" ep; 'unique concentric groove pressing' on side one; vinyl's a bit surface crackly on occasion & sleeve's a bit creased / sticker marked. Overall, not bad.

Because of the volume of stuff, me & the missus concentrated on the 7"s on the Saturday & I went back on Sunday to tackle the LPs. There was a HUGE amount of stuff to wade through & most of it was, frankly, cack.  The order system was a bit of fun: supposedly alphabetical, the owner told me the person who put the stock in order did so by listing each by the first letter of the band/person's name i.e. Patsy Cline was under 'P' & The Beatles were under 'T' etc. In reality there were pockets of runs of letters, but mostly everything was everywhere.

The 7"s were either previously owned by "Starlight Roadshow", written in biro on a number of record labels &/or covers/labels, or from private collections (containing a lot of generic/cookie-cutter/conveyor belt pop from across the decades).  A lot of the DJ collection fell into the 'recognisable chart hits', 'one hit wonders' & 'quirky silly stuff' categories - classic mobile DJ fare - but also contained some right gems & these were in an alpha-numeric order system with corresponding stickers stuck on each single's sleeve. I've managed to remove them from most but some are stuck fast.

I was promised a cache of spoken word LPs buried somewhere within "a shit-load of Jim Reeves & every Classical album produced ever" but, they never materialised. I have a feeling the owner has a chunk of vinyl at his storage premises that he's not filtered into sale yet & that's where this stuff might be. Anyway, the LPs were disappointing in their returns (unless you are a Classical fan), but I did pick up some nice things of interest.

Overall, across the haul, those sleeves that have survived the years are generally in a rough condition but the vinyl, albeit 90% of it in need of a serious clean, has thus far proven to be in pretty decent condition. In total I spent about £20 for the vinyl[nb]roughly, as I bought a number of non-vinyl things there too & everything was costed together off the top of the bloke's head[/nb], which I think a pretty fair deal.

Here's just a small selection[nb]in total I bought just under 100 records, mostly 7"s[/nb] of what I picked up.

Major haul from Dragnet Records in Leeds (used vinyl specialist in the basement of Crash Records). Most of these aren't in great nick but at £1 each I'm not complaining. Shit photo (and bedspread) but I think most of them can be made out. Not into the Crass stuff I've heard but thought I'd give them another shot.

Just discovered this thread :-))

I recently went through a vinyl purchasegasm, to play on a Wurlitzer jukebox (model 2404 from 1959- the first stereo Wurlie). Of course, I ended up buying many more than I needed, but what great fun!

I can honestly say that I've never heard vinyl sound as good as through the Wurlie. I also modded it so it would accept any audio in, and can play Spotify Premium via an iPad (or iPod, iPhone etc). I can report, reasonably objectively, that playing the same song from Spotify and on a single, the vinyl does sound better.

Does anyone else have a vinyl-playing jukebox? I love the insides of it- 1950s cabling, valve amplifier, 6 stage-sized speakers. Industrial quality. Lovely :-)

I also bought and restored a 10" 78rpm-playing Wurlitzer (model 600-K, built 1938/9), and went through a similar process for shellac. Lovely 1930s cabling and amplifier, and one enormous speaker! I never thought, prior to this, that 78s could sound so good. Just incredible.

That was how I got back into vinyl (as a kid I was mostly a cassette guy).

The only other people that tend to see my bed are my Dad and my Grandma, I don't need to impress them. Should've done something special for a photo on here though, agreed.

I got this as I liked the sleeve and it was 25p and flipping the sleeve discovered it is a rather excellent 12" by Momus = result!

This past weekend me & the good lady took a few trips out to a number of Cardiff & surrounds' flea markets, junk shops & posh tat warehouses that we've never been to before. We discovered some really excellent places to dig for vinyl & an awful lot of what we bought was ridiculously under-priced. There were some stupidly over-priced records among the numerous piles we chipped away at, but I steered clear as most people weren't in the mood for haggling..

Great, chilled out post-Christmas weekend, all told, & a very satisfying way to spend some of the Christmas money some relatives still send us in our cards.  Here's a selection of some of the stuff we picked up, most of it personal taste / curiosity as opposed to value / collector purchases. Although, some of these are worth a bit more than what was paid for them.

Siouxsie & The Bandshees - Candyman b/w Lullaby 7" 20p. Sticker scarred label, pretty decent vinyl in a 1332 Hereward Radio (now Classic Gold 1332) sleeve. There were tons of these sleeves in 2 of the flea markets we visited.

Kid Stuff NEVER TALK TO STRANGERS LP 20p. My curiosity got the better of me. It's American produced &, well, that's as much as I know about it really & I'm not about to start Googling for history on it. The coloring book has never been touched. I will be doing something with the audio.

in better condition than mine, this US copy is from their mid 70's soft rock phase : Farther Along (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VTsqEz88gZo&index=1&list=PL8a8cutYP7fqxGX3clS7SoIMAycNT6TlL)

this LP came in a plain white sleeve with Musical Knowledge - Aural Test written along the top,
and turns out to be a one sided LP of classical music for students to identify for their CSE music exam,
I found the questions really hard, so god knows what the O' Level was like!

and it turns out to be pretty sweet and uplifting gospel music - best find of the week

I guess this is the Rugby Union equivalent of the popular 70's Liverpool football LP Kop Choir (http://www.discogs.com/Kop-Choir-Liverpool-Clubs-Own-Football-Squad/release/2963975)

a few nice finds among the chaos of the tip shop today

I found the first ever Ron Grainer 78 in this same tip shop a few weeks ago
and today I found his classic TV theme

I have a few Butlins records but this was my first Pontins disc. The woman 2nd left
looks a bit like a young Lynda Bellingham, but it can't be her can it?

a private press single of poems laddie, no idea of the year of release but prob early 70's

(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/CCI31122014_00014.jpg)

a tatty UK sleeve but one I had never seen before




(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/CCI31122014_00009.jpg)

this may come in useful, come the glorious revolution brothers + sisters

(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/CCI31122014_00008.jpg)
I had no idea about this but it turns out to be a reggae version of the Rolf classic




(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/CCI31122014_00005.jpg)

the vinyl is VG but the sleeve is in beautiful condition, probably my best find of the day

(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/CCI31122014_00006.jpg)



I didn't leave it like this, someone seriously needs to tidy up a bit!

I've been told one of the local community dumps is opening a tip shop sometime this year (first of its kind 'round these parts, I believe), so looking forward to seeing what turns up in that.

I was back at the tip shop today but the records were in an even bigger mess
Title: Re: Recent Vinyl Finds
Post by: Head Gardener on January 06, 2015, 05:47:56 PM
I posted a thread on another music forum a while ago and as it's record related thought I'd repost it here.
It's been a few years now and most of these have closed down but it's a tour of the old tip shop haunts.

I thought I would try my luck at the various Recycling Centers or tips as I like
to call 'em, in my local area. As Northants and Bucks are proud to boast that they
claim to recycle up to 74% of our disposables it stands to reason that at least 12%
of that might be vinyl. So I took off with my trusty camera to find out...

(http://i293.photobucket.com/albums/mm50/shanequentin3/SIXTIPTRIP.jpg)
I knew I was getting close to this tip as the smell from the nearby sewerage
works is so overpowering before you even get within half a mile of it.



(http://i293.photobucket.com/albums/mm50/shanequentin3/SIXTIPTRIP5.jpg)
They take their recycling very serious here, nothing is wasted, especially books.




(http://i293.photobucket.com/albums/mm50/shanequentin3/SIXTIPTRIP6.jpg)
Even unwanted boxes of Friends VHS tapes are left out in the vain hope that
some sad sap might snap them all up at three for a £1.




(http://i293.photobucket.com/albums/mm50/shanequentin3/SIXTIPTRIP3.jpg)
There are vinyl pleasures to be found however with this Royal album a worthy
addition to my collection of Queen records.


(http://i293.photobucket.com/albums/mm50/shanequentin3/3tt3.jpg)
to New Bradwell and expectations were low



(http://i293.photobucket.com/albums/mm50/shanequentin3/3tt5.jpg)
So imagine my suprise at finding a huge box of ex-djs singles,
which for some bizarre reason had over a dozen unplayed copies of
The Smiths 7" 'Shoplifters Of The World Unite' in it. Even at 50p each or helpfully
3 for a quid I just couldn't be bothered with 'em, sorry.



(http://i293.photobucket.com/albums/mm50/shanequentin3/3tt6.jpg)
I'd like to see Daventry Tip top that tip



(http://i293.photobucket.com/albums/mm50/shanequentin3/3tt7.jpg)
Their stock is left to the mercy of the elements despite a small corrurgated covering.



(http://i293.photobucket.com/albums/mm50/shanequentin3/3tt1.jpg)
The damp and quite frankly pathetic selection on offer deserved
to be dumped in a skip somewhere, there must be one round here somewhere...



(http://i293.photobucket.com/albums/mm50/shanequentin3/3tt.jpg)
a tip trip just on the outskirts of Northampton



(http://i293.photobucket.com/albums/mm50/shanequentin3/3tt4.jpg)
No shortage of tatty old trash here, "need a piano squire, how many?"
They take their recycling to almost industrial levels here.



(http://i293.photobucket.com/albums/mm50/shanequentin3/3tt2.jpg)
Shame then that they had the most expensive records of all the tips in
the entire area. Sorry but I have really got to want it to pay over £1-
and no, there wasn't anything here for me, it's all just garbage to be honest



(http://i293.photobucket.com/albums/mm50/shanequentin3/SIXTIPTRIP23.jpg)
The only other tip in Northampton is at Sixfields, home to division 2 mid-table
stalwarts The Cobblers & my local cinema where I can often be found in row J.


(http://i293.photobucket.com/albums/mm50/shanequentin3/SIXTIPTRIP24.jpg)
A dark and not a very inviting metal container has something vinyl lurking within.



(http://i293.photobucket.com/albums/mm50/shanequentin3/SIXTIPTRIP25.jpg)
Unfortunately it's just a pathetic selection of tip-tat.




(http://i293.photobucket.com/albums/mm50/shanequentin3/SIXTIPTRIP18.jpg)
I make my way to Towcester where I'm sure there will be richer pickings on offer.


(http://i293.photobucket.com/albums/mm50/shanequentin3/SIXTIPTRIP19.jpg)
A friendly warning in front of me as I park the car.



(http://i293.photobucket.com/albums/mm50/shanequentin3/SIXTIPTRIP22.jpg)
I get out to be greeted by the tip cat, so much for no pets!



(http://i293.photobucket.com/albums/mm50/shanequentin3/SIXTIPTRIP20.jpg)
No shortage of vinyl in the "shop" but it's gonna take a while to root thru it all...




(http://i293.photobucket.com/albums/mm50/shanequentin3/SIXTIPTRIP11.jpg)
But I find nothing of interest in Towcester so I head south to Milton Keynes,
my first stop is my old stomping ground of New Bradwell where I lived for 10 years.



(http://i293.photobucket.com/albums/mm50/shanequentin3/SIXTIPTRIP12.jpg)
The signs were looking good at last.



(http://i293.photobucket.com/albums/mm50/shanequentin3/SIXTIPTRIP13.jpg)
However the signs lie as it was bloody shut, grrrrr.






(http://i293.photobucket.com/albums/mm50/shanequentin3/SIXTIPTRIP7.jpg)
West I go to Newport Pagnell, home of Aston Martin cars and an
M1 motorway service station and a busy tip and err, thats about it.
Here they have a STAR SHOP which sounds pretty cool and possibly fruitful.




(http://i293.photobucket.com/albums/mm50/shanequentin3/SIXTIPTRIP8.jpg)
More metal containers full of strange and mysterious objects, hmmmm...



(http://i293.photobucket.com/albums/mm50/shanequentin3/SIXTIPTRIP4.jpg)
Heaven knows what dangers might be hiding in the back of this one.



(http://i293.photobucket.com/albums/mm50/shanequentin3/SIXTIPTRIP9.jpg)
I did find a few records such as this original Nancy & Lee album, they did
have the largest selection of old videos I have come across today.
I picked up Pirates Of The Caribbean for 19p, that was all my loose change!


(http://i293.photobucket.com/albums/mm50/shanequentin3/SIXTIPTRIP10.jpg)
I was smart enough to leave this LP by the late father of Paula Yates




(http://i293.photobucket.com/albums/mm50/shanequentin3/SIXTIPTRIP14.jpg)
My final stop is at the aptly named Bleak Hall, not quite something out
of an old Dickens novel but pretty grim nonetheless.



(http://i293.photobucket.com/albums/mm50/shanequentin3/SIXTIPTRIP15.jpg)
The last time I was here it was all closed off as a young helper had been
injured (by a falling box of Friends videos, probably) so I was pleased to see
it had reopened for business.



(http://i293.photobucket.com/albums/mm50/shanequentin3/SIXTIPTRIP17.jpg)
The promise of Beastie Boys and The Boys albums almost got me quite excited
until I saw the condition they were in. I think the snow must have been left
to gather on these boxes as they were all a bit soggy and useless.
So not a great afternoon for coming across any great finds but I have done
well at the tips in the past, it was just not to be my day today

Since just before Christmas the missus & I have somehow found the time & energy to visit a fuck load of charity, secondhand & junk shops, car boot sales, flea markets & salvage yards etc. To be fair, it's only if we've been in the vicinity of such establishments etc. as opposed to hunting them out[nb]we are just finalising buying our house & so have been at antique & salvage warehouses looking for various things for the renovation we plan to carry out on the place once we sign the contract[/nb]. She's been able to pick up a variety of nice bits & pieces of furniture & what not & I've managed to cheekily snaffle a wedge of rather excellent vinyl.

Got to today's main boot sale late. They close up at 1pm, stalls tend to start to disappear around midday. I got there at 12.15pm. Bought the weekly veg & bread then legged it around the remaining stalls. The gent selling the indie LPs below had a ton of stuff but, before I could thumb through it all, I had to wait for a guy & his mate[nb]think Little Britain Andy & Lou in terms of their interaction[/nb] to decide if one of them was buying a handful of LPs I had my eye on.  He eventually decided to buy them & moved out of the way.

As soon as I started flicking through the stacks a group of people appeared & started looking over my shoulder. As I pulled each LP out of the pile (to buy) there was an "aw, shit..." or a variation on "I wouldn't mind that" from behind me. Some of the loudest near-miss groans were for the Bragg LPs (see below), which made me chuckle as I'm not really a fan of the bloke but saw these at £1 ea (near mint, too) & thought I'd give him another go.

The stall holder also had a stonking slab of '50s & '60s jazz, blues & '70s space rock. All for £1 each. I decided to take a walk around the stalls to see what else was there, before I spunked what little cash I'd taken with me on one stall. Which was a bad decision because, by the time I'd circumnavigated the place / stopped & dug about at a few stalls, the guy had gone. Hoping he shows at another car boot tomorrow or returns next week.

My last find, just as I was leaving, was about to be tossed into the back of a car when I spotted it. This was the only record the stall owner was selling & it hadn't gone. The guy said "50p as seen" & I took a punt. Sleeve's held together by electrical tape, inner had almost disintegrated & the lyric sheet had seen much joint activity. The vinyl was storage-filthy but with a few cleans has come up lovely with a little surface noise & a couple of pops

I did find a few records such as this original Nancy & Lee album, they did
have the largest selection of old videos I have come across today.
I picked up Pirates Of The Caribbean for 19p, that was all my loose change!

My copy of Nancy & Lee also came from my local dump. I'm going to have Some Velvet Morning going round my head now for the rest of the day, which is no bad thing.

I've got a copy of that signed by all the band that I got off ebay for slightly less than the price of a CD. I was pleased that I got a bargain, but also slightly saddened that a signed Throwing Muses LP should fetch so little.
By spooky coincidence I played a side of it yesterday (before I read your post). I've been having little vinyl binges since Christmas as I bought myself a 1210 Mk2 and not only is it a joy to use I can play records on it safe in the knowledge that it's not going to chew them up. I couldn't say that about my old deck.

I've just spent the weekend in Amsterdam and found an excellent record store called Wax Well Records. There were a number of records I fancied but due to my location and a desire to investigate a band I've never knowingly listened to I bought this; (The Ex, if it isn't clear)

Infuriatingly, as I was walking to the station on my way home, I walked past an incredible looking record shop (much bigger) just 50 metres away from my hotel. BAH!

I found a few old record and stylus catalogues along with inserts inside some of my album
finds this week along with some nice singles, nothing really rare but some are hard to find


(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/CCI20012015_00012.jpg)
even though it was only 50p I nearly put this back in the box until just by chance I read
the production credit to - A Wizard - A True Star which I can only assume is Todd Rundgren
although the music doesn't sound like the sort of thing he'd normally do

(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/CCI20012015_00000.jpg)

I love these old advertising leaflets, this one is for the Shure Stylus from 1974

two old TV shows on one 7" The Sky At Night (http://youtu.be/l8EgD7LoVXs) theme brought back memories even though it's not exactly all that catchy

I found this in a box of singles I won at an auction - it was full of Roy Orbison and Karl Denver records but
for a winning bid of £3 the lot I was more pleased to find this private press folk 7" from 1970 than the others

of just some of the great early 70's rock and jazz available on Probe Records, musicassette and 8-track

picked up a whole load of Irish Civil Rights vinyl at the tip-shop this morning,
I guess they all came from the same collection too as they were all grouped
together. I already had a couple of them but at £5 the lot I think it was worth it.
They all date from the late 60's to the mid 70's, and some make for very grim listening (if your English)

rear of the cover had coffee stains but the vinyl is clean and a Go Beat original

one to trade on as I already have this, but someone has gaily rubbed out the price on the sticker

Title: Re: Recent Vinyl Finds
Post by: DrunkCountry on February 03, 2015, 05:17:49 AM
Last week, to get out of a brief snow flurry, I ducked into a tiny charity shop that I'd never visited before, in a part of the city I'd not visited for over a decade. No idea what the charity was (one of them surviving early '80s ones with a very specific target cause) & inside it was more of a decades old/untouched junk shop. There was nothing of any real interest on the shelves etc. to help me kill time, so I asked the lovely old lady in charge if she had any vinyl out back I could take a look at. She told me there was a box of it that she had put aside for the tip as no one buys it anymore & I could have it for free if I wanted. I had a look at it (mostly the usual charity shop detritus) & managed to find a decent handful of (for me) excellent releases. I ended up putting a donation in their collection tin as she wouldn't take any money for what I found.

Below shows some of the 50 or so records I picked up there + a selection of bits & pieces I've found over the past month in all the usual places.

RSPCA Bird Song 7" flexi I used to be in the YOC as a kid, so I'm pleased to find this.

Privately pressed LP. There's about 25 accordion players in this orchestra. It's an accordion orchestra. Can't find *any* details about it on-line. It does cover some standard musac tunes but the back up of drum, bass & organ is excellent as. Wall of accordion. Wallordion.

This is a seriously sparse recording/production & the execution is lo-fi as fuck.

This had me laughing, probably at the wrong things. There's something not quite right about it.

Needed a good clean to get rid of a first track/song skip. The vinyl's a tiny wee bit surface marked & there's a light crackle, but overall it's a fine example.

Took a punt on basis of cover / subject matter / guessing it would be a sample heavy thing. Decent track overall. The b-side is wank.

Cover has a sticker scar & a few dents. Inner is wrinkled to fuck but vinyl's very clean.

Cover's knackered. Inner needed gluing & the vinyl is an ice rink. But, it plays w/o skips or sticks & the surface noise is amazingly minimal.

Gandharva (The celestial musician)a sound track for a non-existent film, by Beaver & Krause, and a host of guests. Oxfam £5, a bit pricey, but worth it...

£5 is a bargain. Side two of Gandharva is incredible. How can you go wrong with Gerry Mulligan set to a church organ in a cathedral setting? One of the best pure live ambient recordings I've ever heard. Apparently Gerry Mulligan was a complete arse to the people making the album, expecting the star treatment and luxury hotel accommodation whilst everyone else was mucking through. The tracks they achieved were worth it, I must say. One of my favourite albums, all thanks to side two.

I bought and sold well at Reading record fair yesterday, these are some of the 78's
picked up at various prices from 75p to £2 and there were some LP's and 7"s but I'll post those later.

(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/DSC00400.jpg)

This 78 is especially rare as it was a charity single and includes a spoken introduction
by The Queen's husband into a song sung by Frank Sinatra and featured in  ‘Gay’s The Word’
the last stage show written by Ivor Novello in 1951 - listen (http://www.mediafire.com/listen/h74yvqi4ujecj15/Sinatra_78.mp3)

a French disc in beautiful near mint condition, with a bit of research I found
it was released in 1947 and was the debut release by The Charlie Parker Quartet

Small world, I was there too. Picked up a few things, best buys (and possibly of most interest to CaB) were Pete and Dud's "By Appointment" EP (£2) and the Once More with Cook LP (£5).

We're you the chap selling the enormous number of rap and DnB 12" singles, HG?

jeez that maniac haha, no I was over on the other side, with a table share with my mate, it works out well
for us both - cheaper stall and saves on petrol etc, I took over £350 but bought really well too which was the clincher!

In hospital since the weekend, so missed out on the car boots & a record fair. So, propped up in bed & bored, I thought I'd post some more of the freebies I picked up from that charity box a week ago + junk shop, flea market & boot sale bundles from a few weeks back.

Long story. Was bimbling around Thursday's[nb]I usually only go to the Saturday & Sunday ones[/nb] local car boot[nb]because (a) the weather was nice & still / frosty, (b) I fancied a walk & some fresh air after being on my back for most of the week[/nb] where one line of stalls were backed by open storage containers with their contents spilled out across the ground & people crawling across it, hunting for stuff like a proper slum tip. In the middle of it was a box of records, which were cack, & as I was flicking through one of the owners said he had more records in his trailer, but would only dig the crate out if I promised to look through them all. It was all a bit is he going to traffic me? weird, but I promised anyway.

Unfortunately, this massive crate of 100s of LPs & 12"s had been stored in this rickety non-waterproofed, rusting, rat-riddled metal container at the bottom of a ton of shite knows what. The combination of which had cemented huge chunks of the records together in solid clumps of thoroughly useless rubbish. Looking at the spine end of these blocks I spied a handful of interesting (to me) records but were beyond extracting, let alone saving.

I told the owner it was 80% junked & unsaleable. After a hoo & a hah he said he had no option but to tip it, so I could take what I could salvage. The next 7 records were the only things worth picking out & more or less the only things in any decent nick having been stored towards the centre of the crate.

Some secondhand buys from a week ago:

Africanism III parts 1 & 2 (double LPs) £1.65 & £2.00

After finding Africanism Vol II part 2 & loving it I went back the next day & picked up these. Fab stuff. Satisfies an urge for sexy beats. Covers are a bit wrecked hence £.

Ooh, those Africanism LPs look cool! What sort of stuff is on them?

Fantastic tribal afrobeat / house from the Africanism All Stars collective which includes the likes of Bob Sinclair, Those Usual Suspects, David Guetta & tons of DJs & turntablists & African musicians that I've never heard of. It's what I would probably wrongly call phat.

Wiki explains it a bit: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Africanism_All_Stars (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Africanism_All_Stars)

Their discography consists of 3 'album' releases; the first a triple, with the second & third 'volumes' split into 2 parts apiece as double albums: http://www.discogs.com/artist/5821-Africanism (http://www.discogs.com/artist/5821-Africanism)

I stumbled across these by fluke as I'd asked in a regular secondhand haunt if the guy had any early '80s Afrobeat stashed away & he dug out a handful of albums vaguely related but not at all what I'd gone in for. I took a punt on Africanism II part 1 after buying & loving a triple album of psychedelic blues/soul/funk vinyl diving discoveries/rarities compiled by Blue Note in the early 2000s. Loved it. Went back & picked up these two & loved these as well. I think he has the Vol I triple tucked away as well & I'm nipping in tomorrow while the missus has her hair & eyebrows expensively manicured around the corner.

recent LP vinyl finds, some of these were in a box with a few gold London label 7"s,
they were a bit tatty and some had lost their tri-centres but nice to find anyway!

(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/DSC00460.jpg)

I actually nearly left this as I knew nothing about it and some other records caught my eye,
but am so glad I did pick it up as it turns out to be really good and also pretty rare (http://www.discogs.com/Keith-Mansfield-Loot-Original-Soundtrack-/release/2394481) as well as a big blue sticker in the middle.

(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/DSC00461.jpg)



(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/DSC00450.jpg)

another scarce find was this 2nd LP (http://www.discogs.com/Rodriguez-Coming-From-Reality/release/3337310) by Sixto Rodriguez the cover of which I didn't
quite recognise until I realized someone had actually cut the front flap off!
This too turned out to be a lovely listen and an absolute keeper

(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/DSC00448.jpg)
one of several Christian folk albums in with a job lot I won for £2 at the auction yesterday,
this one from 1970 by Larry Groce was the pick of the bunch




(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/DSC00449.jpg)
also in the same box was this record of old woodwind instrument sounds,
the intro's in a really plummy voice alone are well worthy of sampling




(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/DSC00454.jpg)

I guess it's fate that this turned up too as I only just started watching re-runs of  The New Avengers at the weekend,
I am neither convinced nor scared of the blokes with guns on the rear of the sleeve

(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/DSC00471.jpg)

This great old On-U Sound album was in the box at Age Concern this morning for 49p
I already have it on vinyl & CD but could hardly leave it, especially as it had these 2 x A4 sheets
including the original press release for this and the brilliant End of The Century Party (http://www.discogs.com/Gary-Clail-On-U-Sound-System-End-Of-The-Century-Party/release/50867) by Gary Clail

oddest find of the week was this American album from 1967 which has some good spoken word samples
it comes with strange sleeve notes and a little info booklet

Walked miles out of the city this morning on some errands &, stopping for an early lunch, I stumbled across a cluster of charity shops I'd never been in before/didn't know existed. Nabbed a couple of cheap bits & bobs here & there, but in the last 3 I hit jackpot. Once I'd negotiated the "Do you have any more records out the back?" / "They're unsorted/not priced/we have a man who comes in to price them..." part, I was shown boxes of albums & singles stashed in their storage overflows. In one shop, where the records were in extraordinarily good nick (most had recently come from the same donation), the manager chatted to me for about 20mins about a stash of hundreds of records ('50s & '60s jazz, blues, funk, spoken word, radio broadcasts etc., from the same source as most of those on display in the shop) that she has at a lock up ready for sorting & pricing: "Telephone me at the end of the month & I'll let you know if they're ready." That, I will, certainly, be doing.

Here's a few of the things I grabbed. Most of the LPs were 5 for £1 (3 LP boxset was £1) & the 2 singles & 12" were 10p each.

I'm guessing my expression said it all as one of the other ladies grabbed it off her & gently handed everything to me apologising profusely. Still, the vinyl is genuinely mint.[/nb]

Wow! I'd love that Tony Schwartz LP. I wrote a tiny bit about him on here a while ago, inlcuding a spooky prediction...

Quote
There once (1923 - 2008) was a man called Tony Schwartz and he had a weird type of agoraphobia which meant that he found it difficult to leave his New York  postcode. Day after day, he would wander the area recording everything he heard. He'd tape his conversations with cabbies, children playing, he even strapped a tape recorder to a dog and left it to wander the streets. Luckily, these were released by Folkways so if you are rich you can buy them (or, if you are a lucky, dirty carpeted get like Head Gardener, get them for 7p in a charity shop).

I stumbled across a  copy of the Mel Brooks 7" the other day but when I pulled it out of the sleeve it had half of it melted off! Nice find.

I took off on a two tip-shop trip today with naturally mixed results. The mess of vinyl
below was sold to a bloke who came in while I was there and he paid £40 for the lot,
but most had been digged through and not before I had spent half an hour grubbing about.

Post by: Black_Bart on February 27, 2015, 11:08:24 AM
The Biggles Soundtrack is worth roughly £20 (tho' yours doesn't look that good condition), mostly due to John Deacon being on it and Queen collectors paying silly money for any solo stuff.

Flowered Up... Haven't heard anyone mention them for donkeys...
Title: Re: Recent Vinyl Finds
Post by: Head Gardener on February 27, 2015, 12:39:34 PM
yeah the cover of the Biggles is tatty but it had some b&w movie stills inside of old Biggles himself,
I will probably keep it as it has some nice dialogue clips, like
bloke to Biggles - "whaddya say?"
Biggles - "I say... let's kick some ass old boy"
etc
I was dimly aware of the Queen connection too but JD is not credited on the rear of the sleeve,
the Prince LP is OK btw, but not really my cuppa tea so will stick it in the £5 box at my next record fair
Title: Re: Recent Vinyl Finds
Post by: Black_Bart on February 27, 2015, 02:20:36 PM
Deacon is part of the Immortals (from what I've read of Queen's discog). I've read on t'internet that he produced the Strawberry Switchblade debut, but I don't know whether that's someone whose got the same name.

Re: Prince bootleg, if it's VG+, do it for a tenner, Prince vinyl is always in vogue.

a couple of unexpected finds at the indoor car boot this morning

spookily I also met my own local Ghost Detective at a car boot yesterday, our paths had first crossed
several years ago when I met him in the village and he told me of his other great love David Bowie!
listen to side 1 : here (http://www.mediafire.com/listen/eahs5c7gcai4xw5/Ghost_Hunter_1.mp3) - he also gave me his card

OK it's not vinyl but another nice find was this 1950's board game, it has a few dice missing but is otherwise
in excellent condition and comes with it's own money but the values on the teams has changed quite a bit

Purely for person use, but I had noticed a lot of iffy looking 7"s on there, going for silly money (one of the LPs I got, Contour label, is going for £9). Rock n Roll will never die, I guess.

I volunteer for a certain Oxford family charity in one of their book and music shops in the North West. We've had some pretty decent vinyl donations lately, after the Christmas dearth where the new stock section has to be filled up with Brothers in Arms from the cellar.

Things I've priced lately include some BBC Play School albums, all worth £5 each:

A Michael Chapman 12" worth £20:

(http://www.popsike.com/pix/20100206/310199065494.jpg)

And when I popped in there, we had a hefty load of hardcore punk and grindcore LPs, a la Carcass, Napalm Death, Laughing Hyenas and the early Mudhoney EP with the guys caked in mud.

Bye!

10mins into visiting a local car boot sale this morning I came across a largish crate of 7"s going for 20p ea. or 3 for 50p. M'Lady & I had started thumbing through them, pulling out some gems here & there, when the guy came over & said "£7 the lot if you're interested". I counted how many we'd pulled out so far (around 40), had a quick look at the LPs & offered £5, which was accepted. Buying records today wasn't the plan but suddenly we had a pretty heavy crate of a couple hundred 7"s & LPs to carry around with us / home & we were on foot.

With only a quick look so far (will sort through them later this weekend) I spotted lots of flexis, some great '50s & '60s rock 'n roll, jazz & blues LPs, lots of '80s new wave / alt.pop 7"s  + ton of crap too, tbh. However, I already have a buyer who sells vinyl at a flea market & will take anything I don't want, so I should make my money back & then some.

I did really well at a HUGE record fair in London today, didn't buy anything for a change
but took a hefty wad which will keep me in more vinyl for a while,


(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/DSC00637_zpszh5cax04.jpg)
my stall attracts the usual deviants


(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/DSC00639_zpsvb7j5ii9.jpg)

the best thing I saw however was this Kraftwerk debut on the spiral Vertigo label, (mine is only the spaceship re-issue)
but whats so unusual about this - and I have never seen another in over 35 years of record collecting is that official Vertigo £3 sticker!!
so what you say, it's only a sticker! but I took this pic as I was so shocked to see it, walked over to a mate to tell him about it, we walked back to the stall a while later and the guy said, "oh sorry mate, it's gone"
it was £400

Selection from massive charity/junk/thrift/secondhand hauls following 5 days in N. London couple of weeks ago (Audio Gold in Crouch End is a superb place, fwiw; turntable porn) + a couple of Cardiff/Newport charity/thrift dives & the car boot crate-o-fun from this weekend. Most between 10p-£1, couple LPs were £1.50-£2 & the crate of 7"s, 12"s & LPs = £5.

Here's a small random selection of the 7"s we are holding on to from the £5 crate we picked up the other weekend. Couple of nice finds. The J.S.Bach mispress of the Mike Oldfield Don Alfonso 7", rums by Carmel's Storm, Mobiles, Kraftwerk etc.

albums I have found in various tip/charity/2nd hand shops in the past week

(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/DSC00710.jpg)

I only have an old best of Donovan LP so was pleased to come across this box set for a pound,
however as I picked it up without checking it's contents I discovered it only had 2 of the 4 original discs inside,
still quite a nice find though.




(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/DSC00717.jpg)

the cover alone caught my eye and despite not knowing who the composer was
I was pleasantly surprised by the lovely ambient Jean Michel Jarresque sounds on it.
Richard Harvey used to be in Welsh proggers Gryphon.

(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/DSC00718.jpg)




(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/DSC00719.jpg)

another LP which I picked up by chance (often the best way) was this album by possibly
the worlds greatest ever George Formby impersonator, and yes it has When I'm Cleaning Windows on it!




(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/DSC00721.jpg)

my best find was this scarce album originally given to new employees of Dollond & Aitchison Opticians
instructing them how to sell even more spectacles.

(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/DSC00722.jpg)




(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/DSC00723.jpg)

among a box of pretty tatty Folk albums was this near mint copy by The Cheviot Hills released on the blue Topic label in 1973





(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/DSC00725.jpg)

although this had seen better days I had to pick it up as it was only 50p

(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/DSC00726.jpg)




(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/DSC00727.jpg)

a truly great compilation of old radio show themes

(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/DSC00728.jpg)

a Disco(?!) promo 7" had been slipped inside the gate-fold sleeve and was signed too!

(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/DSC00731.jpg) (http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/DSC00732.jpg)

Today we had the first big car boot round these parts, I was wandering around
a field somewhere in Northamptonshire by 6.15am but it was just as well as I would
not have found the vinyl booty below. A whole bunch of them came from the same
stall and nothing was more than a pound. The BIG one starts in 2 weeks time but
this was a good start to the booting season.

(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/DSC00832.jpg)

The stall I found most of the records on had a pile just dumped on their table
and when flicking through I just decided it was easier to get the lot, this was
probably the best of the bunch, a Woody Guthrie 10" on Folkways from 1950.





(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/DSC00821.jpg)

an early Peggy Seeger 10" from the 50's

(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/DSC00822.jpg)




(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/DSC00835.jpg)

US Blues radio show on WFMT With Big Bill Broonzy And Pete Seeger

(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/DSC00836.jpg)



(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/DSC00833.jpg)

Folkways album + booklet from 1966

(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/DSC00834.jpg)



(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/DSC00826.jpg)

a lovely 1973 Folk album on Topic by Peta Webb which was stone mint!

(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/DSC00829.jpg)



(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/DSC00819.jpg)

A curious oddity, I have not listened to it yet but the sleeve notes
hint at a Spiritualist theme, it was released in 1973 on White eagle

(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/DSC00820.jpg)




(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/DSC00830.jpg)

A lovely 2 x vinyl issue of one of the best DCD LP's released in 1993 all 3
This Mortal Coil albums in the same box too, I only had this on CD before today





(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/DSC00823.jpg)

Oddest find of the day was this private pressing of an album by Ashdon Wait,
I couldn't find anything about this online but another LP by them is quite scarce,
of course that doesn't mean it's gonna be any good though!

Just to throw this out there as someone may know more, I have this 7" handmade picture disc

and never been able to find anything out about it, so please let me know if you know more!

very odd Italian compilation put together to promote Lycra, not a great surprise
to see Rod Stewart featured then, but I wonder if Roxy Music sax player Andy Mackay
knew his image was being used for the cover?

lovely sleeve from Mr & Mrs Fripp but not heard it's contents yet, released on EG in '86

a quick search on this charity single by the ex ELO bassist found it to be scarce now,
so not enough folk were prepared to stump up the 89p or whatever it was in 1985 to help the poor animals,
but at least I gave 50p to a charity shop for it!

a few tip-shop finds turned up the LP in it's horrible sleeve above and a totally
bizarre disc of recordings of Futurist & Dada sound works dating as far back as WW1.
This was released on ARK Records in 1985 and comes complete with a booklet.

if this was a souvenir of NYC circa 1967 then I would have hoped for a more
eclectic set of tunes than this fairly safe selection from 1964 - still, a great pic of Manhattan on the front

A selection from a number of crate digs in the usual wet & cold places + grabs from a local secondhand store that had a phenomenal 50% sale throughout March + a tiny selection of a mass of vinyl I got from trading basement/attic junk at a flea market a few weekends ago.

I love stuff like those two. It's so rare to find stuff like this in the wild in Cardiff. I do have, put away in the same place I got those, a mint copy of Humphrey Bogart & Lauren Bacall ‎– The Lux Radio Theater Presents "To Have And Have Not" which I'm really looking foward to listening to. On a slightly different tact, I also have put away a mint copy of Flair 1989 - The Other World Of British Football - Volume One that I'd not heard of before but since found out is quite a nicely put together document of football culture.

some nice finds at one of the first big boots of the season, it was bloody cold and damp at 6.30am
but seems to have been worth it - there are several on Monday too but will be away so will miss them all, oh woe...

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/DSC01083_zpsxtt3inrc.jpg)

a decent compilation of mid 70's themes by the original artists

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/DSC01085_zpssam7xe0a.jpg)

a nice pair of German lasses, sorry I mean nice Sound Effects records

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/DSC01089_zpst6erlupp.jpg)

also in the same box as the German FX LP's was the best find, an album in a tri-fold sleeve
which seems (judging by the enclosed letter) to have been sent to a Mr. Duncan c/o Vauxhall in Luton
the record itself tells the story of the Bugatti car.

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/DSC01094_zpsl1wyjmpk.jpg)
another album I had not seen before was this Caravan album released on Kingdom Records in 1980
(I actually paid £3 for this, 3 times what I usually pay for records, so it better be good!)




(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/DSC01092_zpstksgcu44.jpg)
I have been collecting unusual 78's for a while now and so couldn't resist this one




(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/DSC01082_zpsnum5qy9u.jpg)
an odd looking comp with an unreleased Billy Connolly track released on Transatlantic in 1974



(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/DSC01079_zpslnnlijne.jpg)

it was only 50p but some of these old school recordings can have interesting tracks on, grim sleeve though

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/CCI03042015_00002_zpsfezd7rmg.jpg)
and the only single I have picked up this week was given to me for nothing by a kind old chap
I met at the car boot and after chatting to him for a while insisted I have it for free!

This is a great record (£3) & the magazine is in mint condition (as is the record/sleeve, to be fair). Inside the magazine I found this nice, if pointless, little extra:

Just back from a break in Cumbria with some digging between fell climbing with a few unexpected finds.
and an early car boot turned up some nice 7"s but it was the charity shops of Whitehaven & Maryport
that came up with the LP's, including this first one which I had only heard about but never seen before!

in the same box as the Savile LP was this spoken word adaptation of the 18th Century erotic novel
'Memoirs of a Woman of Pleasure' read by Mary Harrison - released on Dial in 1964

most of these singles below were from the same stall for 50p each and I was pissed I missed one box of 60's EP's
some the guy cleaned him out as I was standing there...

I recognised Jah Wobble from the cover but there is little other info on the sleeve
or label as to who this record is by - the white label has Dan MacArthur on both sides
but the a-side plays Beat the Drum For Me, the b-side is a faded-out version of Dan McArthur
and has JW being cheeky on the rear of the sleeve.

Last week, walking down one of the studenty shopping streets in Cardiff, I saw a man unloading bags & boxes from his car & into a charity shop. As I got closer I spied a small box of vinyl with an interesting sleeve poking out the front & jokingly asked, "How much do you want for the records?" The gent immediately shot back "£5 & they're yours." I asked for a quick thumb through them & handed him a fiver - he didn't want any more for them, just to cover his petrol for driving them to the charity shop. Turns out the records were the unsold remainder of a modest collection that had been sold off in car boots etc. for quite a few months by the owner (a relative of the guy dropping them off) who hadn't had a record player for years & needed to get shot of them.

Here's a handful from the box:

Love these sleeves. I'm guessing these were from a much larger set or boxset. Haven't done any research on the series yet, but JUDITH CHALMERS as narrator. It's a delightful re-telling of the Arabian Knights tales.

The unaccompanied warbling is a bit demented but the narration is lovely. Lots to rip & play with.

I like a brace of songs by these but this EP stinks to high heaven. Very bad live recordings, the 2 sound utterly half-arsed in their singing & playing & their cover of All Along The Watchtower is wretched.

a nice mix of albums at the boots this morning - nothing more than a quid!
this scarce Elvis album below was £1.50 though and is near mint but not really my cuppa tea

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/DSC01443_zpsymkkv4s5.jpg)



the best finds were a couple of nice singles including this EP by Dave (Mudge) + Tim (Clutterbuck) released in 1968 more info (http://"http://www.martin-kingsbury.co.uk/articles/mudge&clutterbuck.htm")

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/CCI18042015_00004_zpsfumtqyvg.jpg)


this folder/booklet (http://"https://warwickmrc.wordpress.com/2014/11/07/578/") issued by The National Union of Boot & Shoe Operatives had a flexi-disc
by Acker Bilk tucked inside the front inner sleeve along with an application form, it all looked
like it hadn't been touched since it was released in the early 1960's

it is, and yes it's been quite a good day today but the boots start real early here,
I have to be up at 6 and the boot is over by about 9 so I moved onto another which
was pretty cleaned out by the time I got there. Oddly enough as I was leaving the end stall
which must have been rummaged through loads of times turned up most of the LP's including
that Yamashta and the John Holts, she wanted £1.50 each but I asked if she'd do 5 for a fiver
and she said yes so I picked up 15, I couldn't understand how stuff like the Little Richard was still there
but most collectors will have been at the early boot so I was just in the right place etc

a few more things I found over the weekend and earlier today in the charity shops

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/DSC01457_zpspgujbvha.jpg)
the last thing I expected to come across was this CRASS album in the Mind shop



(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/DSC01455_zps84umhywl.jpg)

I have a copy of this LP already but what was the big surprise was the paper
strip that originally went around the outside of the cover hidden away inside!

some old fitness albums can be quite good but I wasn't expecting to find the inserts in this copy

picked up a whole run of 10 Iron Maiden 12" double packs, managed to get the lot for £25
the CRASS box set actually was £5 like the spine demands



(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/DSC01437_zps1ymnta1q.jpg)

always nice to find a some 78's too, the Basil & Ivor Kirchin one was the best

Picks from a recent round trip of local & not so local chazzers, bargain bins & boot sales. In one car boot sale a group of hardcore rastas (who either owned or worked in the permanent unit they sold their DJ gear out of) surrounded me, as I was looking through their vinyl stacks, & aggressively made it clear I looked like a dealer (I'm not) & suggested via jabby fingers that I was going to try & rip them off. No idea what the intimidation was all about because I ended up picking up a handful of LPs & 12"s for the price they gave me (20p each). All pantomime, really.

7"s 10p each. 12"s 20p or 25p each. LPs mostly 20p or 50p each.

Seems there's either a number of people (or one person with a lot of time on their hands to visit & donate to numerous shops etc. across the city) getting shot of Prince affiliated releases round these parts lately. I also picked up a fat slab of Wendy & Lisa 12"s + their first 2 LPs. At 20p each I thought it rude not to.

I've managed to pick up quite a few E&tB 12"s & LPs locally & often see the same ones crop up. First time I'd ever seen this 12" anywhere.
The Original Cutter b-side track is most excellent.

I did Coventry record fair over the weekend and picked up some nice bits and cleared out a lot of old vinyl
2 x boxes, one £5 the other £10 a pop. These were the albums I found, I was happy to pay £10 for the ELO
as it was blue + complete with all the bits including an unused spaceship!

There's a lot of excellent vinyl appearing everywhere (secondhand, boot sales, flea markets etc.) at the moment. Hard times? Hipster bubble burst? Vinyl fatigue? Anyway, last week I was passing a local secondhand place & noticed they had a FREE TO TAKE box outside the shop, so I had a thumb through & pulled out a handful of very nice (if scruffy) finds.

Seen this series of LPs around for years but I was never interested in it, partly because I mistook what they were. For some reason I thought they were an army fellah giving talks with humour on the types of bombs used in WWII. No idea why I thought that. I simply didn't read the liner notes. Just guessed. Anyway, vol. 1 & 2 were in the freebie pile & in excellent nick so I thought I'd give them a punt. Vol. One's sleeve is full of COCK references, eh?
(https://scontent-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xpa1/v/t1.0-9/s720x720/11174812_958751337499037_885252670909424359_n.jpg?oh=fcb28fde6a21edf5bb99999aa66dc879&oe=5599700E)

The following day I was having a late breakfast in a greasy spoon in our local indoor market & to kill time, while waiting for it to cook, I flicked through the £1 bins at the secondhand record shop that runs almost the length of one of the balcony floors & found this, again in excellent nick.
(https://scontent-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xtp1/v/t1.0-9/s720x720/11164819_958751427499028_2547231263558841653_n.jpg?oh=ebafff6cbd6bc3d684b0489dca643ba8&oe=55C91480)

& from the same £1 bin:
Shonky sleeve but vinyl & inner are very passable.
(https://scontent-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xfp1/v/t1.0-9/s720x720/10956752_958751800832324_6267662792107856181_n.jpg?oh=a924640a31b365bafc47d7f8d55774b5&oe=55A0DE60)

Some picks from a different place's £1 crate:
Pretty immaculate vinyl, storage damage / impressions on sleeve.
(https://scontent-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xap1/v/t1.0-9/s720x720/11156245_958751447499026_3530340260837311092_n.jpg?oh=e100188db0ad7e537cb11737e69fe926&oe=55D3A827)

Burst top seam, scuffy vinyl but does not affect play / light surface noise.
(https://fbcdn-sphotos-c-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xap1/v/t1.0-9/s720x720/11037110_958751674165670_5019185260252477226_n.jpg?oh=328d23d3e5f085d41aba7bc03e6e92ea&oe=55CCDBC9&__gda__=1436083095_9ce2f7789e7266414be0d9fa12cbf106)

More from the FREE TO TAKE box:
Stump 12" is in really good shape all round. Puzzling little number, mind. Starts off rather naff, gets worse, then slowly turns epic.
(https://scontent-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xpa1/v/t1.0-9/s720x720/11196315_958751424165695_7619436943665687562_n.jpg?oh=bfbf72795a6355c59445b12f48ea3bb3&oe=55D380CF)

Sleeve is pretty much destroyed by original owner. Back of sleeve is covered in scribbles & signatures & doodles & CCFC & Cardiff City For The Cup & Liverpool For The Cup, BINKSY, & numerous other joyous waffle. Original mono release, vinyl's a bit of an ice rink but there's miraculously little surface noise / popping & not a single jump or stick.

Sleeve's fucked. At some point someone blu-tacked the sleeve to a wall or something because the blu-tack was still attached on the reverse. Vinyl's a tad ice rinky but plays with minimal surface noise & has no skips or pops. There's a ruddy great scuff across 3 tracks on one side & I think this is why this was free, but it's not even audible when played. So, no idea.
(https://scontent-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xpa1/v/t1.0-9/q81/s720x720/11115603_958751900832314_5716089324362792411_n.jpg?oh=de0291b3c68fe2454817f304e41127d7&oe=559E9307)

Some buys from secondhand / car boots from past weekend:
Original UK release. Sleeve's a bit scuffed on corners & it had a large dried food stain (or it could have been vomit) on the reverse, but I managed to remove it by ironing a tablecloth over it & then lifting it off with an antibacterial cloth. Hardly any evidence of anything being there now. Inner's immaculate, the vinyl has a few hairlines but no audible pops or owt. The dead wax on side one has the loudest incident of surface noise on the whole album. Great shape all round. £4 boot.
(https://scontent-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xap1/v/t1.0-9/s720x720/11156160_958751887498982_3155108145703267609_n.jpg?oh=36be52b759e18cb07fa4fb9f4370e5f0&oe=55DE0B60)

Big, fuck off sticker scar on top right of sleeve, but apart from that in very good condition. £2.50 boot.
(https://fbcdn-sphotos-g-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xat1/v/t1.0-9/s720x720/11110974_958751914165646_3998191948557002568_n.jpg?oh=a13fab7f755e635c14a94fd9ec570c39&oe=55997D8F&__gda__=1436524787_c613f59c72b70b4d7d4b2f69469709b1)

Outer & inner sleeves of gatefold are badly water damaged & had been stuck together at some point; lots of scuffs / tears / scarring inside. Both discs play very well with some pops & surface noise here & there. £3 secondhand, reflecting the sleeve damage.
(https://scontent-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xap1/v/t1.0-9/s720x720/11182301_958751510832353_2956443523444485261_n.jpg?oh=17002dc96673adda1039e8d26caef09a&oe=55C8B940)

Sleeve's mottled / stained to buggery but the vinyl is super. There is one jump half way through & a bit of intrusive surface noise towards the audience fade out on side one. Still, Mingus. £2 boot.
(https://scontent-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xfp1/v/t1.0-9/s720x720/11150836_958751520832352_6219884023261511540_n.jpg?oh=6a907d4465a5f1a0baac5d717deaccc6&oe=55CC76BB)

Everything about this record is lovely. £3 boot.
(https://scontent-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xpf1/v/t1.0-9/s720x720/11009927_958751530832351_1740467172820715236_n.jpg?oh=3e6dbebf750cc30c61987a243df06463&oe=55CB7951)

Also, picked this up this morning for 50p at a charity shop. Anyone know anything about the series? There's not a great deal of info on line. Really lovely selection of folk tunes. The labels are completely wrong & list side 2 contents on side 1, as well as the sleeve & labels refering to Volume 5 when the narration on the record itself refers to volume 7.

Had to take a chunk out of my 'put away' stuff at my favourite secondhand place as it was getting ridiculous. I haven't even dented it, really. The shop owner's a patient bloke. That pile's been building up / nibbled at for months & months. Anyway, due to insomnia, I snapped these from some of the pile. Couple of car boot finds in there, too. LPs £3-£6 & as noted.

Along with a huge collection of cheap Mad Professor/Scientist/African Headcharge etc CD's
which I found at the car boots this morning, there were other nice odds and ends in the fields.

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/DSC01616_zpskmmjhiah.jpg)
side 1 of this 7" from 1972 features music by Cathy Berberian who is mentioned in the Steely Dan song
Your Gold Teeth from the LP Countdown to Ecstasy :"Even Cathy Berberian knows / There's one roulade she can't sing."



(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/DSC01615_zpsrxnnl8in.jpg)
this was a nice find but is the 1980 re-issue on Snotty Snail Records,
however it still features the song Gary Bushell's Band Of The Week on the flip



(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/DSC01611_zpsvl4o97zl.jpg)
a run of kids EP's released in the early 70's on Kiwi Records

I was pleased to find these 2 old schools records earlier today, issued in 1972 on Universal Edition Records.
I could find very little info about them online but they will have come with teachers books at the time of release,
the one accompanying the Hear & Now single is available for £50+ on Amazon.
Jonny Trunk also used 2 excerpts on this 7" for his Classroom Projects (http://www.trunkrecords.com/turntable/classroom_projects.shtml) compilation album.

^ luckily my missus comes with me on most of my vinyl digs.

Here's a handful I picked up on Wednesday following a rather depressing hospital appointment. I decided to walk the 4½ miles home & nipped into a load of charity shops & a couple of junk shops along the route back.

(https://fbcdn-sphotos-d-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xpt1/v/t1.0-9/11219378_967218649985639_6008344809607352079_n.jpg?oh=67cd2f6684d4f49c227b371d6c6be0bc&oe=56055523&__gda__=1442972199_27faa23555b5acd803c81b1be368ac3e)
25p Discogs lists selling prices for this at around £10, whcih isn't a bad return on a punt. I was drawn to this by its cover. Vinyl's lovely & heavy as hell.

(https://scontent-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xpt1/v/t1.0-9/11262379_967218643318973_4491327116174628163_n.jpg?oh=35e557efffb2c357620ad2a6c4a632ab&oe=56053965)

50p! Sleeve's a bit knocked about & one of the inners is sun bleached. Side one has a very visible scuff across two tracks but is inaudible on playing. There was a price ticket stuck with sellotape to the front of the sleeve & I had to stop the woman aggressively ripping it off & do it myself, as I'd seen her damage items ahead of me in the queue. I already have a few copies of this (incl. the original I bought when it came out) but it's a record I never tire of playing & have almost worn out my other back up copies.

Today our washing machine broke down & flooded our kitchen. We was well pissed off. So, instead of doing all the chores to get the house ready for some bands staying this weekend / next week, we decided to go & visit a mate & then hit the charity trail on the way home.

It was a hilarious morning / afternoon because we were playing cat & mouse with another crate diver, who had a massive rucksack full of LPs on his back. Don't think he was from Cardiff[nb]if it was anyone from CaB - lighten the fuck up fellah! It's only a bit of fun, eh?[/nb] as he didn't seem to know where the shops were.  He was a bit of a rude prick, to be honest & didn't reply when I gave him a knowing grunt & nod when we first 'met'. He simply barged me out of the way to look through the records I was looking through, snatching up a load of things I either already had or had thought 'meh'. That's not me being disparaging, he was genuinely hoovering up anything that looked vaguely interesting. Anyway, we followed each other up the trail of shops, either one of us getting to the other first & having 'first sight' of whatever was there. Even when I got to a place first, though, he'd barge in & start looking at records as I was inspecting one I'd pulled. He did get a good few things I'd have snatched & I'm pretty damn sure the feeliomg was mutual. It was comical, he really was the more eager to get in first & would pace behind me if I was taking my sweet assed time over a particular crate. Toward the end of the charity route my missus & I skipped a shop to jump ahead of this guy, knowing the shop we missed out has a good rep for decent vinyl but also knowing the one we were headed to had a better rep. The last two records in this haul are the 2 I found there.

This LP is a Cuban jazz multi folk orchestra LP by Albita Rodriguez called " Habre musica guajira" 50p

50p LP Inside the near pristine inner (vinyl looks unplayed, sleeve is storage scuffed) is a compliment slip from GWR radio in Bristol & written on it is "CONGRATULATIONS! Gary Vincent xxx" So, I'm deducing, this was a prize for something on the radio.

These are the 2 LPs I got at that charity shop. Both first presses. Damned is in excellent nick, if covered in dust. Sleeve's a bit age worn, but tintact & very colourful still. The Clash has a few hairline marks but apart from that it's clean as. Sleeve's a wee bit scuffy on the spines, but apart from that it's in top nick. I knew the other fellah would be coming into the shop at some point so I placed these 2 LPs facing up, on the floor, between my legs. Sure enough, he walked in &, my missus told me later that he looked seriously put out he'd missed these two (or one of them at least). I made a thing of checking the sole crate of LPs twice, you know, just to string it out (there was shit all there except for these). He was into the crate & out the shop in a minute, which is a shame as he missed the woman behind the counter telling me these 2 records had literally been donated 5mins before I'd gone in. We went & had a massive naan bread falafel wrap after that. These were £2 each.

Handful from the car boot this morning. Not a brilliant selection out there today, but not bad for half an hour. There was another crate diver out when I was there, but this guy was very polite compared to the last angry fellah I encountered &, seeing as I was ahead of him in the clockwise route around the market, always asked if I had finished looking before he had a scan through the records.

10p 7" & 20p-50p 12"s & LPs. The Pink Floyd was £1. Also picked up some Bryan Ferry LPs, a few (first press & one re-issue) Lennon LPs, a load of '80s & '90s indie 7"s / 12"s (Garbage, Echo & The Bunneymen & the like).

As I was in the area again, I quickly popped into the same charity shop I found The Damned & The Clash LPs recently & stumbled across this lot (except first three, found at the only other charity shop we looked in yesterday, at 50p ea.).

There are a couple of re-issues but the majority are first presses. Sleeve condition varies & one or two are missing original printed inners, but the vinyl can be conservatively graded between VG & NM throughout. Unfortunately, the Wilko Johnson was missing the bonus 7".

These were priced up as either £2 or £3, but the very nice lady there gave me £10 off the overall total. She told me these had only been donated & put on the shelves that afternoon, too. That's twice, now, that's happened in the space of a couple of weeks, so I'm going to keep an eye on the place.

Yeah, I'm always a bit envious of some of the charity shop hauls that get posted in this thread.

I'm lucky if I find anything on vinyl in my local charity shops now that isn't by Ray Conniff & His Orchestra, Liberace, various military band albums on the Marble Arch label or The Goons.

There's one stretch of charity shops here that run through a heavily musician populated area, a middle class area, a very studenty area & a very old school pub rocker area. So pickings are usually pretty decent across the course of any given year. I don't go to that part of the city that often in one month, so Christ knows what I've missed vs. what I've managed to find. Recently, say in the last 3-4mths, especially in one or two particular shops, the quality of donations has gone up across the boards + flea markets & boot sales are starting to bring out lots of vinyl collections.  I've mentioned before there's a lot of really good vinyl turning up everywhere at the moment. I'm guessing, in this case, a few of the old guard pub rockers have died & their relatives are getting rid of their possessions. Otherwise, I don't have a fucking clue. I'm pretty jealous of the stuff Head Gardener finds as it goes, because we get so little speciality / spoken word stuff in these parts.

I've picked up some nice 7"s and 10"'s finds on my travels, nothing more than £1 a pop


(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/CCI08052015_00002_zpsocz8tawt.jpg)
This was in the 25p each or 5 x £1 box at the recycling centre, I didn't realise it was so rare
until I got home as I just didn't recognise the tune. Turns out to be one of the rarest Clapton 7"
due to it being withdrawn by the band as the didn't like it sounding quite so fast.


(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/CCI08052015_00004_zps7crdusre.jpg)
1st track from their LP Surf's Up released as an A side in UK and B side in America.



(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/CCI08052015_00007_zpssgqybakk.jpg)
Early Strawbs release pre Lay Down their debut UK hit




(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/222%202_zpsmdqvfyxv.jpg)
A cute American 5" single which oddly flipped Another Nail In My Heart to the B side


(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/222%204_zpsnqdrozeu.jpg)
Not from the album Quadrophenia but 'From The Musical Work'




(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/222%207_zpsn66qnwf1.jpg)
It's a bit rubbish and I don't need it but I just couldn't leave this in the box



(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/222%205_zpsikalzcqe.jpg)
The seller wanted the princely sum of 50 pence for this ten inches of pleasure



(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/222%203_zpsff6m65g5.jpg)
Best buy was this beautiful original 78 by MM in NM condition

This 10" EP by Tom Waits was an unexpected delight too!

Popped into my favourite secondhand place this week to calculate what I have & owe in 'put away' records. As soon as I walked in the owner said "this is right up your street" & handed me a mint copy of Blood Brother, Blood Sister by Black Blood. Then I spied a perfect Apocalypse Now OST original dbl LP, a mint copy of Bruce Lee Dragon Sounds Special, a fantastic looking copy of Malcolm Middleton's Into The Woods & a bunch of other excellent oddities, which were immediately 'put away' with a promise to go back this weekend & take a hefty chunk out of the ridiculous stack. He'd had a few serious collector collections come in & one guy was obviously shit crazy for soundtracks, which he said had all been bought, taped, put away & never touched again, & I was getting first sight. I also picked out & bought a handful of cheapy things from the stack, however, as a gesture of future intent. He doesn't really care, though, because he knows I'll eventually buy it all & a fuck load more in the meantime.

This is another on of his "up your street" suggestions. £3 dbl LP. Funky latin jazz & mambo beats with great vocals.
(https://scontent-lhr3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xtf1/v/t1.0-9/11265036_981843528523151_8450755448049508722_n.jpg?oh=d114f3c0cc04971761cb9e51da40e521&oe=55F77CF6)

Blue label 2001 European demos & live comp, unofficial release. Mad find. This was sat on a pile of records on the counter & marked up at £1. The owner said there was a nasty looking couple of scuffs, possibly scratches across half of side A, but he hadn't played it as he figured the thing would jump to fuck. I had a look & the record, apart from these two rubbish looking swipes right across the grain of the vinyl, was in very blwdy good nick. He put the side on & amazingly there were no skips, jumps or clicks, so I bought it before he had time to think about changing the price.
(https://scontent-lhr3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xpf1/v/t1.0-9/10983282_981843671856470_845537205496402603_n.jpg?oh=0ec33019a051518b2a364ffbb9906e0a&oe=560AB160)

12" + poster, £3. Could not let this pass. I just never see Sleeper in the wild. They're like Elastica in that respect. Pristine condition.
(https://scontent-lhr3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xpa1/v/t1.0-9/p720x720/11209697_981843735189797_8853730326694990404_n.jpg?oh=81a6a9b2666cda36f280176352e1312d&oe=55BF54B5)

I noticed this record on sale for £15. I was a bit bemused as to why, so took a look & it was labelled up as being a rare version of the release (there were 2 versions of the 12" released on the same day). I then remembered I'd seen a copy of this 12" in the other shop. So I hot-footed it over there, checked the matrix run-out, & bingo. Another copy of the same rare version & it's in brilliant nick. Result. The Femme Fatale cover is both unintentianally hilarious & brilliant. 25p.
(https://scontent-lhr3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xap1/v/t1.0-9/10583996_981843568523147_1114869953505985108_n.jpg?oh=5352c29dc837829d121a1f5789f76153&oe=55C53A71)

This record shop always has bafflingly good bargain bins (10p - £1) & FREE TO TAKE stacks. The latter is usually not bad vinyl but with juvenile owner fucked sleeves, usually scribbled & written on with a serial killer frenzy. I picked out a ton of interesting to me stuff, including:

Alan Barratt - Zulu Nation part VIII, ltd. ed. white label 12" promo. Freebie bin. Hardish Afro-House.
(https://scontent-lhr3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xpa1/v/t1.0-9/p720x720/11231749_981843525189818_4709376756018780650_n.jpg?oh=55b486e384aff61f6a55b0f577a2d701&oe=56012145)

Freebie bin.

Freebie bin. The sleeve's a bit buggered on the top seam & the vinyl had a bit of a droopy warp to it across the first 30secs of track one. But, recently I discovered a brilliant way of safely de-warping vinyl, so nabbed this (esp. as it has the French version of the title track) & now it doesn't have the warp.

Freebie bin. No panties, massive (obvious) sticker wrecked sleeve, all sleeve seams unglued but the desk 'legs hadn't ever been opened/used & the vinyl is very nice having been housed in an inner.
(https://scontent-lhr3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xpf1/v/t1.0-9/11070206_981843675189803_9149127546968399843_n.jpg?oh=ddb4f593bc1590896c3820c925b3b2ec&oe=5608EBD5)

25p bargain bin. Bought for the second b-side track which samples Pink Flamingos
(https://scontent-lhr3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xpf1/v/l/t1.0-9/10418141_981843621856475_1944248792431167387_n.jpg?oh=6328d7fcdc29b414c9d79a168fe8421f&oe=55F77894)

Picked these 2 in a charity shop tucked away down a side street off the main drag in the city shopping centre that I think is off the radar of most people's charity binges as I've picked up some beauties from there in the past. Both in excellent condition. 99p each.

Lovely day at Splott Car Boot Sale & up the Cowbridge Road East charity shop trail in Canton, Cardiff, yesterday. Haven't been to Canton in a while & usually it's rich pickings, but all the shops were a bit bare. We also missed one shop entirely, the best one for vinyl, because I forgot it closes at 2pm on a Saturday.  But, it was a lovely day & we had a lovely walk then lunch in a place we'd not been to in over a decade.

7",  10", 12" & LPs 10p - £1

I took another chunk out of my 'put away' pile at my favourite secondhand place earlier this week, after which I did a quick dash of the local charity shops.

From my pile I chose this lot. Prices between £3 - £5

£1. First UK press. Sleeve's very tired, has a split on spine, top & bottom seams are scuffed bare, the inner is split on all seams & the lyric sheet is missing. Vinyl has a small rough scuff on the last track of side 1, which produces about 4 or 5 clicks on rotation & nothing else. Side 2 has a nasty looking splice across tracks 1 & 2, but produces little if any rotation noise, very few clicks / pops & only one jump, toward the end of the first track. Apart from that, it plays very well.

By my count this is the third mention of (Jefferson) Airhead on CaB this week, all by different posters[nb]One of them me, referencing their brief period as my favourite band when I was 14.[/nb]. With this kind of buzz they should reform for a cash-in at the Hoxton Bar and Grill.

I hadn't intended on record buying yesterday but, after a gloriously sunny morning, we suddenly had a massive rainstorm, which I wasn't dressed for at all. So I ducked into a charity shop & killed time by having a nose in their racks & a few unsorted boxes out back. After the storm had passed I carried on my way & auto-pilot visited another charity shop & then a secondhand place. It was only after the secondhand place I remembered I was actually supposed to be on my way somewhere & was now running late + a bag of records was going to be a right pain in the arse to now have on me.

These are some of the things I picked. Cost between 10p-£1.

Some more from the secondhand 'put away' pile + a few charity shop finds, including a sweet PiL haul from the same chazzer I picked up The Clash, Damned & Neil Young etc. LPs a few weeks back.

Secondhand - prices between £2 & £6 (for Malcolm Middleton LP)

Charity shops - prices between 50p & £3.50 (for Live In Tokyo dbl LP).

I recently reassessed my opinion of Grafitti Bridge after giving the film another looksee. Hadn't watched it in about 20yrs & fuck me has it aged all wrong. I never liked it to begin with, messy over-stylised vanity bollocks as it is, which (coupled with my utter dislike of Thieves In The Temple) coloured my perception of the LP/soundtrack (that up until recently I'd never owned). This time around, I still dislike the film with a passion but I paid more attention to the music & found myself enjoying it way more than I ever remembered. Found the LP in a charity shop (sleeve is as rough as, vinyl G-VG) for £2, so thought why not?

Been on holiday in Cornwall this week. 

Was staying in Looe, and there was a Cancer Research UK shop in the high street that not only displayed their vinyl selection on metal clothes hangers, but were also charging way too much for pretty much every record they had.  For example they had 4 of the old 70's Top of The Pops cover version LP's, all of which had covers that were falling apart and scratched/dirty vinyl, which they wanted £7.50 for, and a few tatty late 80's house 12" singles (e.g Simon Harris' "Bass: How Low Can You Go") which they wanted £6.00 for.

(https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CHIfFtDWkAAhXjb.jpg:large)

So, imagine my delight when I got back home today, went into town, nipped into a charity shop near me and managed to snap these up for £2 each.

And these were £3.00.

The Alex Gopher and Les Rythmes Digitales LPs had only just come in so I was quite lucky to grab them.  Big fan of both of those albums anyway and never in a million years expected them to turn up in a local charity shop.

As I've said earlier in this thread, I'm usually lucky if I find anything that isn't Harry Secombe, Mantovani, Ray Conniff or The Carpenters, so I was as happy as a pig in shit with this particular haul.

That Cancer Research store looks gloriously mental, both with their pricing strategy and their product display. £7.50 for those TOTP albums, heheh.

On the way to a friend's late afternoon Friday I popped into the charity shop where I recently found the Damned/Clash/Neil Young etc. stuff & found another pile of interesting donations. I picked up as much as I could afford (only had a bit of cash on me & had left my wallet/card at home by mistake) & then went back first thing Saturday morning to pick up whatever'd been left. Luckily for me no one else had seen or wanted what was there, so I grabbed all the other records I'd previously eyed up.

I asked the counter lady (who has served me every time I've bought records there) where the hell all this vinyl was coming from (this has been, like, the 5th or 6th time I've struck lucky there in around 3mths). She just shrugged & said "Donations."  I have a sneaky suspicion she may be selling her own collection through the shop as she became very sentimental over one of the LPs.

Vinyl is generally Very Good - Excellent throughout (each simply in need of thorough cleaning to get rid of a thick layer of dust). Where a printed inner or insert is supposed to be they are there & mostly they're in excellent condition. Sleeve condition varies from Poor - Mint.

LPs = 50p-£1 ea., except GnR & Roxy Music = £2 ea.

Here are some more of the singles I picked up at the fair over the weekend
along with some LP's I found yesterday, like I don't have enough bloody records!

There were several Goons 7"s in the boxes but this was the pick of the lot,
I guess Decca went re-issue crazy for a while after they hit the charts with The Ying Tong Song.

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/CCI15062015_00015_zpsvaj556op.jpg)

When there were demo copies of this EP cropping up in the 10+ boxes of
music publishers stock at the record fair I couldn't help feeling that someone
may have creamed off any the Beatles/Stones/Bowie demos that may have
originally been in there, luckily this one slipped the net.

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/CCI15062015_00012_zpszjblgaik.jpg)


These were some of the albums I picked up at the village garage sale in Kilsby yesterday,
there were a lot of Bowie, UFO and AC/DC too at 3 for £2.



(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/DSC02355_zps7qz42glc.jpg)
The cover alone looked nice and I had no idea it would sound quite so good too,
the single cut of the title track (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0onCEQNhInY) is pretty rare.

I just inherited several hundred early 1990s rave records. 

There are a few nice things in there - some Aphex Twin, Orbital, some KLF and so on, but the vast majority are (by the looks of things) not really my bag - FFRR Records, Cowboy Records, XL stuff like SL-2, a load of twaddle of the Rotterdam Termination Source variety.

I went to a record fair on Sunday & bought a copy of The Beatles' "Yesterday...And Today" LP with the cover where they're sat around a steam trunk. It's an original copy & the cover's fairly knackered so at some point I will attempt to remove it to see if there's that butcher cover underneath. Probably not.

EDIT- I don't think there's anything underneath it. It is in mono though.

I raided my local charity shops today and was pretty chuffed with my haul.

Firstly, managed to pick this up for £3.99 in my local Oxfam.

(https://encrypted-tbn3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcT66USaes9VUggF1P9hneKRm0sKQexooMP19hBF2ZwDvJVB7S-EKg)

Cover is pretty tatty and the vinyl has seen better days but can't go wrong for less than a fiver.

Next went to the PDSA shop and the lady behind the counter let me have these two for a fiver...

(https://encrypted-tbn3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcSXPw15bFPbfPCkAJOAnpCJUem-0vN7R13En2nIBEnUcDuwRwyvrA)

(http://thumbs4.ebaystatic.com/d/l225/m/myi3BiRTGqyeJ1rNxSFcB2Q.jpg)

Seemed to get on pretty well with her as she offered me some pretty rare soundtrack albums for just £5 a throw.

(http://eil.com/images/main/The-Kids-From-Fame-Set-Of-Six-LPs-393686.jpg)

Again, condition was pretty ropey - should come up OK after a decent clean - but she promised to let me know if any more came in and not let the other crate diggers snaffle them up.

Finally, picked up this rarity from Age UK.

(http://listverse.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/10/32513.jpg)

There wasn't really anything of any value out front but I got talking to the man who runs the place and after showing him the rarities I'd already picked up, I could tell he realised he was dealing with the real mccoy and let me buy this from out back. Should have been at least £20, apparently, but he let me have it for a tenner. He said it was very valuable and I'm looking forward to investigating it later on tonight. I might go back there tomorrow as they had loads of old CDs from off of the front of Mojo that he said were rare and that he'd do me a deal on.

I know this isn't entirely within the purview of this thread, but I've just made a great find... within my own collection. Was flicking through looking for something to chill to when I found the Duke Ellington Orchestra's Such Sweet Thunder[nb]A suite of pieces based on the works of William Shakespeare[/nb], a record I didn't know I had. Vinyl's in excellent condition, sleeve too, and it seems to be in the original inner. I reckon I must've inherited it from my granddad, which means I've had it in my possession for about six years without realising. Listening to it now and it's fucking ace.

Despite missing an entire weekend of car booting I still found a few records wandering the charity shops yesterday,
nicest of all was this 78 which was in the tip shop for 50p (I did put it in one of my company sleeves when I got home)

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/DSC02751_zpsgopv1vmv.jpg)

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/DSC02750_zps2mg8r1rk.jpg)


and a few 7"s

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/CCI15062015_00043_zps71u84an0.jpg)
I only picked this up for the label really, hoped it was Folk but it turned out to be Male Voice Choirish


(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/CCI25062015_00004_zpsqnrs1zoh.jpg)
I had never seen this Pentangle single before


(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/CCI08062015_00002_zpslfvvgqw2.jpg)

classic Yardbirds in lovely nick and an ELO 7" in it's original picture sleeve

Same. Missed last weekend's round of boots & it was lovely weather, too, which would have meant a lot of sellers. I did pick up a few interesting bits & pieces over the week, though.

Handful from the box of records I picked up this morning at the local boot sale.  Mostly 20p or 25p buys. The Sugarcubes' 12" was 25p, Woody Guthrie tribute was 50p.

A real hotch-potch of vinyl finds the past few days, a few of which I bought for the covers alone, for example

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/DSC02867_zpsndqws7xt.jpg)

It's hard to tell if this sleeve was touched up to make the players look scarier than they probably already were
but there is an unsettling look on their faces that says yes, I could break your collarbone just like that if I wanted to!

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/DSC02868_zpsn9npmvgn.jpg)




(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/DSC02876_zpsyy6c9lau.jpg)

Equally unsettling but perhaps for different reasons is this comedy album from 1983 features a young-ish
Angus Deayton and musical director Philip Pope who went on to do Who's Line Is It Anyway? and The Fast Show etc.

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/DSC02877_zpsyr7iw7md.jpg)



(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/DSC02872_zpsf6rmliua.jpg)
Less wacky than the BBC comedy album, this features the talents of both Rolf Harris and Slim Dusty.



(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/DSC02874_zpsmwcpsneu.jpg)

Great gatefold sleeve for this French album by Francoise Hardy released in 1970

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/DSC02875_zpsgtozwqtr.jpg)


some nice themed 7"s

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/CCI29062015_00011_zpsvgu8orgp.jpg)
A bit of an oddity this one, featuring clips of the Radio Caroline DJ
going through his paces, released in 1969 probably through mail-order.

Called over my friend[nb]he's the chap who often works with Marshall Entertainment vanity dressing the empty seating at stadium gigs for the likes of Paul McCartney etc. & was also the landlord of Stewart Lee's girlfriend who lodged at his gaff for a few years in the late 80's / early '90s[/nb]'s house yesterday afternoon & he told me the fantastic[nb]unbelievable rather than hard to believe[/nb] story about a school mate of his, a former Cardiff Uni Events Manager who vanished after nicking all The Great Hall's PA & large vans / lorries &, after being introduced to the very early incarnations of 'commercially' illegal Ecstasy (as we now recognise it in pill form) by Bhagwan Rajneesh in India &, along with a few other of Bhag's disciples, he subsequently smuggled some of the first batches into Europe & the UK on his re-appearance & was subsequently instrumental in starting the whole rave-in-a-field scene[nb]utilising said university's gear, transported using the 'borrowed' vehicles[/nb] as he put on the first pre-Rave happenings that catered specifically for E. Cardiff lad, he was.

Anyway, on the way to my mate's I popped into a couple of my usual stomping grounds & fell over a couple of stacks of the most excellent records. All for embarrassingly low prices/around the £1 mark. The Time & Sheila E. were £2.50 each. 7"s were 10p each.

Going by a number of posts here, what's with all the Prince vinyl in charity shops these days?

That lot above was mostly all from one donation to a charity shop, so I'm guessing the owner (Laura, to whom one 12" is inscribed, in biro, as part of a Happy Birthday message) either retired to a home/died or no longer had a record player. The others I have posted have come from charity shops, secondhand shops, junk shops/yards, flea markets, car boot & jumble sales, house sales, gumtree & etc. As to why there's so much about in general, I think maybe that's always been the case (especially if you're visiting charity shops etc. outside your own postcode) albeit in fits & starts. Same with Micahel Jackson around these parts. & Janet Jackson. Can't speak for elsewhere/others' finds, mind.

Probably more likely to be the internet/phones etc. given the amount of Prince CDs I see in all these places as well.

It's the best place to get bargins. Records shops (nowaday) are mostly run by numpties wasting tax credits, who buy in cheap and then sell at silly prices. Luckily these people never know the value of anything (I once got a NM copy of the Magic Christian ST for a £1).

Any charity shop near student lodgings is worth a look.

I picked up a right old load of Irish Folk this week, am slowly ploughing my way through them
but will probably have to stick them up in 2 posts as there are so many cracking sleeves, all date
from the late 60's to the early 80's and were only 25p each! OK so

Just found these photos of D'Vinyl in Cardiff, my favourite secondhand record shop & thought I'd share them. I didn't take them, some Czech fellah called Mira Wallek who visited the shop did & then posted them to the shop's Facebook page. They're not very representative of the chaos of stock in the place & the front half of the shop, which is mostly stacks & stacks of vinyl, haven't been photographed. There're CDs everywhere, ditto DVDs, books on music, band t-shirts, amplifiers & the odd record player/turntable[nb]I bought a Numark TT-1910 from him the other week for peanuts & gutted it to repair my other two[/nb]. Recently he & his part-time assistant have been tidying up & rotating the stock from his lock-up & that which has been buried under the tables & racks for years. I love digging in here. I'm still finding gems after all these years & he's still buying in some amazing stuff. Pretty reasonably no-bullshit priced, too. Well recommended if you're ever in town.

They don't really convey the claustrophobia of the place, so I did a quick Google for some more photos.

World of Hits vol 2 - Decca comp from 1969

The Associates - Take me to the girl 10" has cover of God Bless the Child

Richard Digance - Commercial Road  By the time I'd moved to Britain RD was more an "entertainer" in that Carrott folk club type way. It's got Jon Lord on keys.

Dennis Star Presents Original Stuck vol 1 Greensleeves comp from 1989

Robin Trower - For Earth Below.

Pete Townshend - White City (already traded in for the Bumpers comp from Island)

Cak! - Alexis Sayle. A lot of his stuff from the Young Ones, but with swearing. Had to stop listening to this half way through side one, I was just laughing too much.

Despite the self-imposed moratorium on crate digging[nb]following the massive Prince find[/nb] we repeatedly found ourselves in the areas where our favourite places are located[nb]e.g. my favourite secondhand shop & a slew of excellent charity shops, with a steady supply of donated vinyl, are on the direct walking route to my friend's house, which I've been helping to renovate, & the (longer) alternative route is also well stocked with charity shops[/nb] & the temptation to 'have a quick look' often proved a little too great. Especially when we were seeing some great records at silly cheap prices, a lot of which were in the original collection I regretably sold[nb]from the moment I walked out the door with the money in my hand. Spent the last 20 years trying to buy the same records back & I'm about 40% there[/nb] in the '90s. Because of the renovation[nb]& because, after a whole fucking year, we've finally bought our lovely mad house & plan to start renovating it asap[/nb] we've been spending some time in salvage yards & junk shops & flea markets & boot sales[nb]looking for Edwardian doorknobs/skirting/coloured &/or patterned glass/wallpaper etc.[/nb], which can never be done under look but don't touch rules. So we've sort of accidentally amassed quite a nice haul. Some nice curios as well as wants & wish list finds. Prices vary all over the place. The most I paid for a record was £6, I think. Most were below £1 each.

In this one charity shop there was a pile of records that were all originally bought at D'Vinyl's in Cardiff — I recognised the shop owner's handwriting on the price stickers still attached to the sleeves. This was originally priced up at £18, marked down to £9.99 (price it originally sold at via D'Vinyl) & I bought it for £2. I popped into D'Vinyl's later & mentioned this pile of records & the owner exlpained a regular longtime customer had recently given a ton of 60s-70s soul away to charity shops as he was "running out of space for new records". The 3 records are in lovely condition.

12"s were from car boots (25p ea.) & the Jesse Johnson LPs were from a secondhand stall in a market & were £3 each. I also picked up the New Power Generation 12" maxi-single, which includes the tune Get Off (as opposed to Gett Off) + the US 12" maxi-single of Gett Off

Anyone remember these? I always liked them live, but the LP was a disappointing exercise in dull indie. Saw them support The Fiery Furnaces in Cardiff's then open Barfly years & years ago. One of the more brief careers of the early 2000's with this, their only album release. £2.

This one is a bit of a cheat, kind of. Looking on Gumtree for period bits & pieces I ended up looking under 'vintage', which threw up all sorts of things including record players, which eventually distracted me onto people's crappy vinyl collections. One guy was selling a ton of stuff[nb]usual various angles of a pile of records photos + no list[/nb] & in one of his photos I recognised the sleeve everso slightly poking out from under the pile. I called him up & arranged to go to his to view the collection, which was mainly junk (to me) so I only bought this original UK press (booklet missing) for £6.

I also picked up some 12"s by The Smiths, Pulp, PJ Harvey, & a Welsh music compilation LP Dial M For Merthyr, amongst others, which I've not yet photographed as I lost the will to live after taking & cropping that lot.

Wilson Pickett - Best of £1 from local market stall (the dude I swapped White city for the Bumpers comp, he's put the WC out at (firstly) 5s then for some strange reason, after not selling at that price he inked in a one infront of the 5? Wonder why WTC don't work?)

12" USA Maxi-Single

Last Tuesday, in my favourite secondhand shop, I was thumbing through a pile of very interesting 12"s & LPs stacked on the shop counter. The owner stopped me mid-thumb & said that they were unfortunately all warped + the sleeves were rough as fuck. Massive shame, we agreed, as there were some excellent records in there.  When I was leaving the shop the owner handed me all the warped records & told me to take them for free as he couldn't sell them, as they were too far gone & skated / jumped to hell on all his turntables, so try them & if I have no joy just to chuck them.  I took them home & played each record, which were all very warped, & out of all of them only 2 skipped. I've applied my de-warping method to them all & now all play without a problem (minus the odd bit of surface noise/pops clicks due to surface marks & scuffs from shitty storage). Result. Here's some of what he gave me:

Also, Thursday/Friday last week, I had a couple of bands staying with me. Their label manager / tour manager also manages a record store in Athens, Georgia (where one of the bands are from). The main guy in the other band (from St. Louis) also owns a record store. Both bands & the manager wanted me to show them around our local secondhand places & charity shops to help find British records they can't find in the states & work out too expensive to import. They had a field day in the places I took them.  Naturally, I ended up picking up a bunch of records too.  Here's a small selection from what I picked up.

a nice pile of Bollywood soundtracks with a live double album gem lurking within
I won all these for £3 at the auction on Sunday, no-one but me was interested in them,
not to complain but I do wonder why sometimes...

This last week I've been falling over piles of vinyl everywhere I've gone & half the time I'm not even been on the look out for it.

The charity shop where I've previously found tons of classic albums etc. (Neil Young, Mothers, Morrison etc.) suddenly had 2 massive additional crates of records. They have new staff there, now, following a staff swap they carry out every 6mths with other branches in the city (which must be a right pain in the arse for the staff as a whole), so they aren't yet aware of me & my buying habits like the last lot were. I asked the new manager if they had any more in the back & she said there were hundreds more from the same donation sitting in her office currently being graded & priced, so I've made a note to go back next week to see what's what. Their prices have started to fluctuate recently, too, which is no bad thing for my wallet. Started out as individually priced, then one price fits all & now 3 for £1.50. I pulled 30+ LPs/12"s from the new crates so the manager gave me a 50% discount (everything came to about £6). I also picked up a Ramones t-shirt for £2, which was nice.

Secondly, while on a planned lightning quick farmers' veg buying trip to the local car boot yesterday, I bumped into one of the regular stall holders who invited me to dig through the vinyl he had piled in his large white van but hadn't put out on his stall because space. There were fucking hundreds of LPs & 12"s just piled into a chaotic hill in the middle of the van.  "Don't make a mess," he said in all seriousness. I ended up tidying it all up & stacking everything in genres as I went through them.  I've never seen so much James Last in one place before. The sleeve condition on most was pretty fucking dreadful, due to this shitty 'storage' technique, but the vinyl seemed bloody excellent on moreorless everything I pulled (from the shit stuff to the stuff I bought). There were some absolute gems in amongst all the crap, so it was well worth the hour spent. 20+ finds ended up costing me 40p per LP/12" & 20p per 7".

This is a random selection (about a third of the overall tally) from the hauls. Apologies for the crappy images on some of them, I wasn't paying attention/wearing glasses while I was photographing them & missed the fact I didn't have the flash on & that some of the shots are out of focus.

Finally, I took a punt on this a couple of days ago in a secondhand shop selling it as an original/official pressing & turns out my gut instinct (that it is a bootleg, circa 2011) was right. Everything about it is an exact copy of the official (& only) release, aside from the colour of the centre labels (black instead of the usual blue), the sleeve is way too glossy & the fact there's no colour innersleeve only a b&w photostat of the same. Pisser, especially as I think I paid a little too much[nb]£15; I was hoping it was original as that would have been a fucking steal at that price[/nb] for it, but I at least have it[nb]it's one of my favourite TW records[/nb] on vinyl while I keep my eye out for a genuine copy to appear.

Hit the local car boot sale very, very early this beautiful sunny morning & turned up some gems (incl. 2x Calvin & Hobbes first UK prints, £1 ea., one looks unread).

7"s 10p ea, 12" 20p, LPs 20p - 50p.

Lloyd Cole, Buzzcocks, Stone Roses, House of Love, Bunnymen & Creatures (+ poster) were all £2 ea., all from same lady, all first UK press & in either immaculate or near immaculate condition (marks to jackets being the downgrade points). These came from a box that could have held another 50 or so LPs & the seller said she'd already sold quite a bit, so God knows what else had been in there. I think she was selling off an ex's collection. I have all these already, but not in such good condition, so I'll most likely end up selling off the the duplicates.

Very chuffed with an excellent morning's picks, especially as we also picked up 2 more army camp beds (£4 ea.) to add to our stack for visting bands to crash on + a gorgeous A2-sized 1960's solid oak picture frame (50fuckingp) that'll be perfect for this screenprinted Bastards of Fate & Tunabunny US, EU & UK tour poster we were given a while back.

some recent slightly dubious charity shop pickings

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/DSC03827_zpsn7qeypy5.jpg)

great laid back Jazzy mix of electronica and orchestration with a Sci-Fi twist, shades of Steve Hillage on some tracks

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/DSC03828_zpsgeg9qhmj.jpg)




(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/DSC03838_zpsqcswkgmz.jpg)

not sure what the hell this is but it is signed and looks like it might be OK but I'm not holding my breath

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/DSC03839_zpscedtnjc5.jpg)


(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/DSC03836_zpsvyqt3wvw.jpg)
it was the same with this really, I picked it up on the strength of the hair of the guy on the left


(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/DSC03840_zpsemly4oxw.jpg)
again, I just liked the sleeve oh and it was only 25p


(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/DSC03834_zpsfbffzk9n.jpg)

also cheap and probably better than the 2 albums above was this 12" of DJ FX

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/DSC03835_zps1ma1hcbb.jpg)



(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/DSC03829_zpslmrojzmv.jpg)
a pretty faithful cover of The Temptations classic but inna reggae stylee


(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/DSC03830_zps3lb6akv7.jpg)

the guy in the charity shop actually asked me "what the heck do you want this for?"
I couldn't answer him with a straight face and after listening to it he was probably right

More finds, picks & buys from last day or so as me & the missus hunted the usual car boot, charity, junk & flea places for a variety of garden tools & whatnot for our overgrowth blitz. We also popped by my favourite secndhand shop & picked up a few things from my 'put away' pile, which was looking a bit anaemic following the past couple of visits. So, we dug about a bit more & found a load more LPs etc. to fatten the stash up again for a later date.

Had a few American bands staying with us recently & they went nuts in the local record stores buying up as many UK punk/post punk/rock girl band records as they could find. After they left the city, one of them contacted & asked if I'd go back to a few places & try to pick up some of the records she'd left behind but now realised she actually really wanted. Managed to stash a few Girlschool (& Runaways[nb]not British, I know, but hard to find in the US[/nb]) LPs & this 7" so far (shite picture, apologies):

some lovely records found their way into my grubby hands yesterday, most were 50p - £1

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/1_zpsfunzw41a.jpg)
nice 2 x vinyl, never seen it before - it was in the same box as Mansun below


(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/2_zps2kz1yeel.jpg)
I was chuffed to find this, I have the CD but to find it on vinyl (for 50p) made my day!


(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/4_zpsvdqnoxjo.jpg)
DiV 12"


(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/7_zpsxnxkq1mf.jpg)
original 12" issue with a great 15 minute version of Deeper on the flip


(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/6_zpstrcmpqez.jpg)
double album comp of two earlier BB albums


(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/3_zps5ek7eujw.jpg)
I knew nothing about this LP I just liked the sleeve, it sounds really lush and downtempo


(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/9_zpsbp4bopml.jpg)
I like the tune so remixes could be good


(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/5_zpsse9vxxp7.jpg)
God, I remember listening to this on my cassette Walkman decades ago


(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/8_zpsc1t1uhbu.jpg)
I have another BBC Young Folk LP like this which is pretty good so fingers x this is too

Fine random choice there - one of my favourite albums, and a favourite for a number of CaBbers. That's Leslie Winer, model-turned-proto-Trip-Hop artist, friend of William S. Burroughs, and Peel favourite. That album also contains bass from Jah Wobble and backing vocals from Helen Terry.

I found this going through my dad's vinyls a while back, slowly trying to convince him to part with it. it's actually one of the ones released in the 80s, not a new one of the back of his exploding popularity in the last 10 years.

Went to Kelly's Records in Cardiff yesterday to look for another record that the American lot had left when they really wanted to buy it. Managed to find it in less than 30secs after arriving, so spent the rest of the allocated half an hour digging about the bargain bins & recent additions.

£4. Love this LP. Did you know the guy (Ian Dench) behind this band was the guy behind EMF, written for Beyonce, won an Ivor Novello award, been nominated for 2 Grammys & a Golden Globe & was Vice President of A&R at Epic Records?

The next few are all from a private sale, where the prices were low & haggling was encouraged. Dead guy's spoils.

The KLF: "Justified and Ancient" (12", £1)
Bomb the Bass: "Megablast" (7", 50p)
Wings: "Give Ireland Back to the Irish (7", 50p)

The KLF sleeve has been stored curved so needs to be straightened and the Wings sleeve needs patching up, but all the vinyl looks fine.

I didn't buy it but I also saw an odd promotional flexi-disc called "Central Milton Keynes: You've Never Seen Anything Like It". HeadGardener owns a copy. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eyIls75IhaY)

The first one is from 1979 on Cherish and Vol. 2 is on SB Records and was released in 1982

incidently I found a St. Winifreds related 7" at the weekend too, this is the front cover
I'll post the other side of the sleeve which has the lyrics etc in the Recent Vinyl Finds thread

recent vinyl finds

Not the soundtrack to the recent Channel 4 series but an album of sound FX featuring
sex & violence and err, auctions.

(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/post%203.jpg)



(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/post%205.jpg)
Ain't nothing going on here but Cornish verse and music, thankfully these Minstrels are not blacked up.




(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/post%204.jpg)

This album released on Pama in the late 60's features popular tunes of the day,
The Red & White Minstrels and How To Cure a Nagging Wife

(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/post%209.jpg)






(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/post%2010.jpg)

Just when I thought I had every stereo test record ever made I find one
I'd never seen before - released through a magazine in the late 60's

(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/post%208.jpg)





(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/post%202.jpg)
These were the pick of 3 Chet Baker albums I won in a local auction at the weekend,
both are sealed recent re-issues - they were in with a lot of other Jazz stuff
but these were the ones I really wanted, £24 well spent for 15 albums.



(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/post%207.jpg)
This is the Dutch 12" version of the single that was a UK hit in 1979
it's a bit of a shame that it just has the same 4 tracks.



(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/post%201.jpg)
I took a 50p punt on this as I'd not seen/heard of it before and it turns
out to be quite scarce, but it was it's B side Come Inside (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MWVAxueco9M) which I preferred.




(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/post%2011.jpg)

Along with the 2 school choir albums I found at the weekend was this 7" which features
the best known UK school choir (at least since 1979) I never knew they were on another
record as I'd always thought There's No-one Quite Like Grandma was their only release,
so you can only imagine how proud I was to discover this then!

Tom Petty & HBs - Into the Great Wide Open (the Jeff Lynne one)

Rainbow - Rising

Tom Waits - The Heart of Saturday night
                   Blue Valentine

Lou Reed - Transformer (80's issue)

Rock Follies of '77 - This one's intrigued me for some years, but never been cheap enough, the music is by Andy McKay and he plays on it.

Santana - Abraxas

Neil Young - Stars n' Bars

Creedence - Revival (...dude...)

Daevid Allen - Now is the happiest time of your life (will spend some time reading the cover notes...)

Nowave II Propaganda (comp bought for the exclusive Squeeze track produced by John Cale)

Gorilla - Bonzo's (anytime I see this for a quid I buy it.)

Delaney & Bonnie with Eric Clapton - Atlantic Masters.

The above all for a tenner (they clearly know the book price of everything, but not the value...)

Then three from BHF:

Hank Wilson's Back - Vol 1 (JJ Cale, Billy Byrd and David Briggs pop up)

RSO Prime Cuts 10" "The Largest Single in the World"

Billy Connolly - Solo Concert

Quid each.

I[nb]#newpagecunt[/nb] recently fucked my back up & my doctor advised me to keep active to stop it seizing up & becoming far more problematic. So, I decided to visit Newport & spend some time properly digging through all the charity, secondhand, junk & market shops I could find there. Up until my early '20s I used to (mostly clothes or record) shop in the town/visit the massive outdoor market almost every other weekend (with family or on my own as it was closer to where I lived than Cardiff was, so my parents allowed 13yo me to bus the 20 or so miles) & also lived there, just around the corner from TJ's, during the so-called 'New Seattle' years.  Despite all the new buildings & developments the place has never changed. Retail, pubs, charity etc. are all priced accordingly, given the high proportion of low incomes/unemployment. It is a grim town, but that's another thread entirely.

Spent a long time at Kriminal Records in Newport Market as their Bargain Bins are fantastic. Picked up a ton of brand new / sealed Underwater Peoples vinyl releases for next to nothing. KR's general secondhand stuff was top quality, too, & managed to pick up some replacements for some of a shitload of LPs & 12"s that have, recently, mysteriously disappeared from my collection. I also spent some time trawling the charity & car boot trail in Cardiff & its 'burbs &, in all, picked up bucketloads of Prince & The Cure + '80s / '90s indie in general, as well as a couple of holy grails.

Here's some of the finds. Prices from 10p - £3 mostly, a small handful were £4 & a couple were £5, one was £7 & one was £10.

the weekends car boot vinyl treasures, I picked up some Pink Floyd/Smiths/Stones bits too but these were the most interesting

(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/P9110015.jpg)

I already have this but have played samples from it for so long my copy was trashed,
this is a handy near mint replacement - twas released on Saga in 1968 me ol' mucker

(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/P9140010.jpg)
This was is the same box as the Cockney LP, I hadn't seen this one before


(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/P9070002.jpg)
In with a load of Jazz albums, I paid £2 for this - the lady also took my number and said she
would ring me as she had lots more Jazz at home (fingers x her late hubby collected Blue Note!)



(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/P9140014.jpg)

I asked the lady how much her LP's were and she said £4 each, I told her that was way too high for
what she had in her box but then pulled this out and she laughed and said I could have it for a quid,
It wasn't too hard to haggle with her.

I picked up a small collection of 78's from the estate of a late old Northamptonian jazzer yesterday.
He used to be in a band called The Ambassadors, there were a few of his acetate discs in with the lot
along with some Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald etc. These 12" acetates are metal plates with shellac coating,
a few are in a sorry old shape but they still play!

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/P9160007_zpssrnhsqgt.jpg)

This one from 1952 is in much better condition than the 2 metal plate discs, it sounds really upbeat
and is more like dramatic movie soundtrack music

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/P9160014_zps7rxrpqrk.jpg)

2 x 10" discs by Northampton jazz band The Ambassadors - circa 1952

A Sinatra disc from 1943 and I couldn't let the Wembley Stadium 78 go, it dates from 1955 the year Newcastle last won the FA Cup

today's car boot finds

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/P9260005_zpsgwqfzp1a.jpg)

With a bit of research on the official Celtic FC website I discovered this 7" was
released in 1964 making it my earliest football related record. It also came in
a picture sleeve, alas this copy didn't but it was a nice find and was produced by a
young Jim Kerr of Simple Minds (probably)

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/P9260003_zpsy2ftesiu.jpg)





(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/P9260008_zpslm2wiuhr.jpg)

I couldn't leave this in the box for a pound as it has recordings I remember
from the night itself, specifically the actual sounds of a weeping Jimmy Savile.

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/P9260010_zpswzqyh4bz.jpg)




(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/P9260011_zpsdgdotgf8.jpg)
In the same box as the Elvis record was this compilation of early 20th century music.




(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/P9260012_zpswvnl87pk.jpg)

Listening through to this LP early today it turns out to be one of the better Stereo Test records
I have in my collection, released in 1970 it came with a wee booklet too.

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/P9260013_zpsfjgrjqh4.jpg)




(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/P9260014_zpsmdlvrloq.jpg)
I dunno why I bought this as it is no doubt as awful as it's subject matter.



(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/P9260018_zpsrrhmqai7.jpg)
This was a much easier listen than the Sean Brady album, nice sleeve too.



(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/P9260019_zpstcwwhtw7.jpg)
An Italian compilation of early Bowie tunes, it was supposed to have a booklet inside the
gatefold sleeve, but doesn't.

A sweet 20p find in a box of rubbish, Creation #9

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/P9260015_zpsbz3ynf69.jpg)

I kid you not, a guy pulled into the car boot with a van, I wasn't even first in
the back and 2 blokes walked away shaking their heads so I digged in saw the
box of vinyl & asked him how much they were "it's all dance shit mate, so 10p each" he replied!

Been digging through Newport's weird & wonderful charity, junk & antique shops recently. They are some of the strangest I've been in. Plus, I've mined Kriminal Records' bargain bins for pretty much everything they had still in shrink wrap; I haven't been disappointed with a single album or EP I've picked up from the Underwater Peoples & associated stock the owner said he bought on spec in a warehouse sale for £1 a pop. He said since I've been buying so much of the stuff another geezer showed up a week previous, asked where the UP stuff was & bought a fuckload of it. Up until then he thought he may have picked up a dud as it hardly sold. I did wonder if it might have been one of the local secondhand shop/traders/dealers/diggers I'm friends with on Facebook who saw my posts about the stall/finds/label. Whoever it was, they got a bargain.

Picked up another slew of Prince & related releases, including this rare-ish Madhouse 12"

this was a nice find, an audiophile pressing in an exclusive sleeve of the Donald Fagen album
so beloved of stereo test centres, you had to buy some fancy B&W Monitor speakers to get it

this odd looking sleeve caught my eye and it wasn't until I got home I noticed the fella lurking
inside the rainbow was Jimmy Savile, someone had also tried to scribble out his face in pen!

I love the track Geist III. Glorious pomp. I see Loud (esp. Mary & the normal version of Easy) 12"s everywhere but never this 10". I bought it when it came out but it went walkies somewhere along the line.

I saw a record box of albums at the car boot this morning and asked to have a look, "they are all Irish" she said,
"that's OK, I like a bit of Irish" I replied and this is what was in the box all for 50p a pop and in near mint condition too.
I was especially pleased to find the first one for it's beautiful sleeve alone, I do have to get up at 6am to find these things y'know!

So, this superb Easy Rider era Dennis Hopper-like guy with a huge van & 1000s of records pitched up in a local car boot sale today. His seemingly endless number of crates full of records had this hilarious scrum of diggers rifling through piles & piles & piles of vinyl trying to be the person to find the best whatever was in there.

I spent an hour & half going through what didn't even dent his inventory before he started packing up for the day. His pricing system, from what I could tell & observed, was based on how well he got on with you as you chatted. Everything here (+ a handful of other LPs & 12"s) came to £30.

Pretty much everything is a first press (a lot of them US, some from around EU, 1 or 2 UK); the Joy Division is the US textured sleeve fp label misprint, James is the UK original tracklist fp, The Clash incl. original lyric foldout etc. Lots of top stuff & the vinyl, other than needing a storage clean, is beautiful on pretty much everything.

The guy told me he has thousands of records in storage, most of which he brought back from the States (bought in hundreds of yard sales etc.) a decade ago & has been selling them ever since. Included in the piles & piles were hundreds of radio station & music library copies of albums. Which meant, apart from the scrawl of a station call sign or storage reference, the sleeves, inners & vinyl were probably never/once pplayed, near mint & first press. Astonishing avalanche of stuff, with 80% of what I sifted through being utter shite. I left so much there (folkways, blue note, etc.) simply because I didn't have much cash on me for once.

Naturally, he's not a regular seller round these parts & said he only shows up every couple of months or so after doing the trail of boot sales around the UK. I've never seen him before so will have to keep my eye out & wallet full for him.

Aside from the massive haul from the Easy Rider guy at a car boot sale a few weeks back, which I'm still working my way through & will likely photograph the remainder at some point, I've regularly been picking up bits & pieces from all over South Wales (Cardiff, Newport, Chepstow, Caldicot & surrounds, Risca, Abergavenny, etc.) while on work or social trips throughout October. We are seriously looking into starting selling at record fairs as of next year, so a lot of this might well be going towards stock.

Most have come via flea markets or boot sales, with a handful from charity shops & a chanced-upon private house/garage/lawn sale.

Prices range from 10p - £4 for most, with the majority around the £1-£2 mark, & a couple of exceptions at £10 ea.

With the car boot season drawing to a close I rely on other vinyl sources, these are the pick of my recent auction wins

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/new%202_zpsovw7ztek.jpg)
A really nice mix of old Folk tunes including Oh Dear! What Can The Matter Be? and John Peel




(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/new%203_zps2cbhby3c.jpg)
The last Mud album with the original line up which is apparently quite scarce now, cheeky sleeve to boot




(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/new%2018_zpsgl2vlfmy.jpg)

A pretty stunning find in with a huge lot I won at auction last week for a pittance
and have already parted with for a Kings ransom as it was only in VG condition.
It's a private pressing by Gregory Bright and is titled A Room By Greg released in 1969.

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/new%2010_zps2tu4dsdl.jpg)





(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/new%205_zps0gomw0pc.jpg)
This ECM album is from 1976




(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/new%2015_zpsicjjdeh3.jpg)

A curious 70's Greek Telecommunications promo compilation in a die-cut sleeve with booklet

Fine Eastern European Folk from 1966



(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/new%2013_zpsookbby5c.jpg)
More Eastern European Folk but this time from 1971




(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/new%2016_zpsxldc40hv.jpg)

Alan Partridge would be proud of this lovely souvenir from East Anglia released in 1977

I have picked up a few nice things in the charity shops so far this week including this lovely old record box
which the kind old lady behind the counter said "oh, you can have that as we were going to throw it out anyway"
but when I told her it still had some records in it she said "well you can have it for a pound then" which was nice.

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/df_zpssz0panzy.jpg)

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/dff_zpsyptfuops.jpg)
The 78's inside turned out to be quite nice, some by the Folk Dance Band others by the Folk Dance Orchestra
as well as several titled Music For Movement which are the 78rpm versions of the old schools records that were
played in PE class to get kids up and dancing about. I have a few music for schools LP's and 7"s but these are
by far the oldest examples I have come across.




(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/PB040001_zpskpjfzo6o.jpg)

Also in the same shop were some 7"s which were wrapped in 1970's wallpaper sleeves!
I was pleased with this one as it's a tourists disc issued by some Yugoslavian  coach company,
I so wanted it to be either Everyone Back To The Bus from an early TV memory of mine or the Italian Job Theme (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rXUQlmO-L8s)
but it's actually this (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HA_5Yg4H3jA)

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/2_zpslfgltw0s.jpg)

I was a bit perplexed by the vinyl filing system at the Age Concern warehouse,
perhaps some records shouldn't be left quite so close to others.

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/PB040031_zpseiet651b.jpg)
This old boy ought to know better too as he was 62 when this was released just before he died in 1963.





(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/PB040032_zpsntjjfggd.jpg)
Next to it was a soundtrack from 1967 by another fella with a dubious past.



 (http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/PB040025_zpsvvkbcbbb.jpg)
Thankfully in the same box was this LP by someone with an unblemished career, a 1980 record by Princess Grace.




(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/PB040018_zpsjxwehk0s.jpg)

The Animal Sanctuary turned up a couple of Christian albums including one by The Genesis
and an oddly titled album by these 5 lasses.

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/PB040012_zpsqxdkrlcd.jpg)



Also in the same shop was an unplayed copy of a late 60's album by Johnny Nash

Charity Shop finds this week

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/PB120004_zpst3b6zd64.jpg)

A great 2 x LP with pretty much everything that happened between 1922-72. Clips from
the BBC sound archives includes the death of kings to The Goon Show to the sound of Big Ben.

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/PB120006_zpsdsgbbc24.jpg)

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/CCI12112015_00002_zpsfg6snwqy.jpg)

Two Dad's Army stars singing a duet moaning about how there is Not Much Change (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GGYjkgius4k) from a pound,
gawd bless 'em.

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/CCI12112015_00000_zpsr25ldgpb.jpg)
Another 25p single I couldn't resist was this Danish instrumental from 1968
which sounds like a low budget Bonzos - Camp (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7VE9DRreFKE)



(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/PB120001_zpsox2mfq59.jpg)
Bob Hardcastle gives a commentary on what is good recorded sound but unfortunately
it's all about classical music and absolutely nothing to do with Phil Collins.



(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/CCI12112015_00001_zpsddbf8p6q.jpg)

Best find of the week by a country mile was this Big Youth 7" Screaming Target (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9X9RVfCULe4) from 1973 which
was the inspiration for Dawn Penn's You Don't Love Me (No,No,No) (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=weFxKPsYTf4) in this superb old sleeve.
Title: Re: Recent Vinyl Finds

Charity shop vinyl from the past week or so including a double helping of the first and last albums by Grimsby's finest,
The Singing Postman.

The one above was his debut on Ralph Tuck Promotions,"the smallest recording organisation in the world"
before he was signed to one of the biggest, Parlophone. First Class Male was released on Gemini in 1970
and then he disappeared until 1977 when he released a 7" titled Fertilising Liza, bless 'im.

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/new%20vinyl%2016_zps6j5izg3s.jpg)

My first impression of the sleeve was that it must be an unflattering painting of a banjo wielding hick,
then I saw the back and changed my mind.

though it's hard to imagine it ever sold many copies. It was also released on CD (http://www.amazon.co.uk/While-Work-Whistle-Songs-Humour/dp/B000WM71DK) a few years ago.

The sleeve for this LP may have been inspiration for this Pink Floyd compilation as it also came out in 1971.

I have bell-ringing albums but this is the first one I've found with them accompanied by a guitar.

Title: Re: Recent Vinyl Finds
Post by: DrunkCountry on December 02, 2015, 03:25:43 PM
Couple of weeks ago, at the far end of a local indoor flea market, tucked away in an unmanned 'stall, which predominantly sold new-stuff-made-to-look-old tat, I found a couple of large solid record cases/crates full of library music & sfx albums. The guy on the next stall telephoned the owner of the records for info & he was told the vinyl had come from a house clearance that day & the owner'd not even looked at them, let alone priced them.The other stall holder was left in charge of negotiating prices, with the owner's opening suggestion of £80 for the lot (which included an additional fairly large pile of pretty decent releases, as well as some utter pap) as a guide.

I eventually picked out one full crate's worth (approx 75 records) & also had the other (emptied) crate. Based on sleeve consition, the LPs (with a couple of 12"s) came to roughly 40p ea. & the crates (no lids but hinges & clasps intact) were £5 ea. I left about 30 other LPs because I needed the remainder of the cash I had on me for a cab home & there isn't an ATM anywhere near the place. I plan to go back this weekend & pick up whatever is left.

When I got home I realised the sleeves weren't as bad as I had originally thought, although some show obvious signs of bad storage & rough handling & there is some archive labelling & writing here & there. A lot of them had crumbling sellotape across the top & bottom seams, which I discovered wasn't because of splits but to prevent the seams opening should the glue dry. Most of the seams were still solid, so the preventative measures have just stained the sleeves. Still, there were quite a few open/dry seams & missing inners, with some of the original poly inners in various stages of perishing. The vinyl is also surprisingly clean & healthy vs. the state of some of the sleeves. Some of the really older releases have surface noise but a lot of them look like they have possibly only ever been played once or twice, in order to record the tracks, before being archived.

Here's some of what I picked up.

Also picked up a fucking avalanche of '80s & '90s indie over the past month or so. Pickings is good at the moment. People is either dying without inventory or instruction, or the vinyl bubble has burst, or spare cash is more important than nostalgia. Either way, I'm seeing a lot of excellent stuff appearing all over the place all the time.

I love this thread. Makes me want to get hunting again in earnest but the charity shops in North London have little to tantalise these days. I think a handful of avid collectors must visit too regularly leaving slim pickings for the casual record spod.

Flying visit to local car boot this morning where I spotted this record box (something I was keeping an eye out for) full of records. It came from a house clearance (for that is what the seller did) & is in superb condition. No marks or splits/tears in the vinyl covering (inside & out) the clasps work perfectly & the hinged area is solid. Lovely piece & decent colour. I sorted out the records I wanted from those in the box & the fellah asked a tenner for the lot. Barrrgen.

Weirdly, I picked up a copy of that 'Vanishing Sounds In Britain' LP today! I was beguiled by the picture of York Minster on the cover. I took a trip over to Langley Mill, to the well named 'Langley Mill Records', a vast warehouse of a shop with 250,000 second hand records. There's a room full of stuff knocked down to £1 at the back, and a load of second hand books as well (including a couple of Monkees annuals I was eyeing up and one of my holy grails - 'David Bowie: An Illustrated Record' - but it was in such a bad state that I didn't feel like springing a tenner on it.) As well as 'Vanishing Sounds', I picked up:

'Sony Invites You To The World Of Quadraphonic Sound' (various tunes ranging from classical to Santana.)

'Adventure In Binaural' - a Japanese album that looks like it's designed to show off your stereo system.)

'24 Hours', A KPM library album subtitled 'A personal view of the drama and emotion of a single day'.

Donna Summer's 'A Love Trilogy' and 'Love To Love You Baby', to fill a couple of gaps in my Donna vinyl collection!

A best of the Chi-Lites called 'Chilite Time'.

Ennio Morricone's music from 'A Fistful Of Dollars' & 'For A Few Dollars More' (For £1!)

A Bob Newhart Best Of, also for £1.

All in perfect nick.

Just to plug a record fair I shall be selling at tomorrow, clearing out loads of old vinyl/cds/dvds etc on Sunday 6th December
at The Crauford Arms pub in Wolverton, Milton Keynes from mid-day, so you don't even have to get up early. I rarely do fairs
but this is for a mate who is organizing it and the stalls are only a tenner! So if you are in the area, come... buy my tat!

Monday morning Charity Shop haul

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/PC070019_zps9ldkkio2.jpg)
This sleeve could be Volume 1 of a new LP series, 'Now That's What I Call a Pipe'



(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/PC070012_zpsm6taiqy2.jpg)

I'm a sad sucker for these holiday entertainer records, hey look it's signed!

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/PC070014_zps8xece4za.jpg)

In the same box as the one above (obviously) I thought there may be a HRH connection, but it turns out
to be a record by a chap called Brian Royal who also does a cover of that easy classic  'Feelings' and I would
have been so disappointed if it too wasn't signed.

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/PC070015_zpsis9i7uin.jpg)




(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/PC070020_zpsp1bpfr7r.jpg)
A surprisingly Funky soundtrack to a 1977 US TV mini-series I had not heard of before.



(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/PC070016_zpspfu230mu.jpg)

Possibly topping the 'Savile at Broadmoor' LP I picked up earlier this year is this string quartet album.
Featuring the theme from Star Wars to Beatles tunes and all with the blessing of JS, it's signed by the band
on the rear but his signature isn't real.

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/PC070022_zpstotfhhe1.jpg)

This was a nice find, a private pressing of an album featuring soundclips of interviews
with the Sussex school staff and pupils on one side and music recorded there in the early 70's.

There were three copies of this 7" in the same box as the school record so I had no choice but to pick up one of them!

Picked up a decent condition copy of the Peter Cook and Dudley Moore EP on Parlophone (http://www.discogs.com/Peter-Cook-Dudley-Moore-Peter-Cook-And-Dudley-Moore/release/2009120) in a charity shop yesterday for 50p!

Post by: Head Gardener on December 23, 2015, 12:34:37 PM
some of my vinyl finds in the last week or so

(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/1_3.jpg)
I would have paid a couple of quid for this for it's sleeve alone. It's a 1969 album and features a great Freakbeat
tune Girl In a Bus Queue (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sS-ZwvoT9oU) the other tracks reminded me of US baroque poppers The Free Design.



(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/7_2.jpg)
Lovely UK textured sleeve on this US Xian Folk singer's LP from 1973 - check Fork In The Road (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XVKgCb3CMnM)



(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/8_1.jpg)
A nice pair of Blues comps from the late 60's.



(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/6_1.jpg)
I picked this up in Age Concern for a quid yesterday, side 1 has stood the test of time better than side 2.



(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/5_3.jpg)
Another charity shop find yesterday which surprised me considering that tis the season, etc.




(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/3_2.jpg)

60's soul & pop tunes, like Sgt. Pepper (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_6DoNQMGrAk) in an instrumental stylee, digging the Hendrix influenced art man!

(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/4_3.jpg)




(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/2_2.jpg)
Not sure I'd fancy cream on my meat pastie, urrr yuk.




(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/11_2.jpg)

I wouldn't be surprised if they re-issued this 7" originally released in 1974 This Is The Season For Us (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wZNJQ0NJzXY)
but someone really needs to write a song for the B side dedicated to Jamie Vardy.

(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/12_1.jpg)



(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/9_1.jpg)
While Rolf was up to no good with Two Little Boys no-one thought to question Captain Mainwaring, it was the 70's.


(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/10_1.jpg)
One of the rarest finds this past week was this great (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e5zLCqsUl9w&spfreload=10) 7" from 1967

Picked up a stash of soundtrack albums today, they were all were £2 each, I hadn't heard of some of the films
but these were the pick of the bunch along with an unexpected album in a plain white sleeve which I couldn't resist.

Vinyl finds on my charity shop + 2 jumble sale travels


(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/P1140013_zps2be2cmjz.jpg)

I also have an LP by Don Harper titled Homo Electronicus (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-S_sRAAmIzE) and this LP is the follow up to that one,
but is more straight ahead cover versions, nice of him to scribble on the back though.

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/P1140014_zps0abtwig9.jpg)





(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/P1140010_zpspqzkchlc.jpg)
This is a double LP of Beatles cover versions with a great version of Strawberry Fields
the sleeve has ripped off that classic 'World Of...' album typeface, despite not being on Decca.



(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/P1140012_zpsuhpovjdr.jpg)
This LP is pretty rubbish but is the only sleeve I've ever seen with a gorilla playing an accordian on it,
so a keeper obviously.





(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/P1140008_zpsscu4ybcy.jpg)

From the same box as the accordian album I found this top opening LP from 1968 though probably
not worth quite as much as some other white sleeved album which was released the same year.

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/P1140007_zpsqiplemdo.jpg)






(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/P1140005_zpsxh9pkt0k.jpg)

Best find of the week was this demo 7" issued to promote the Mel Brooks film Blazing Saddles

This is probably as far away from an obscure album as you can get, but I managed to score an original 1964 1st pressing[nb]with 3N/3N matrix numbers for you nerds[/nb] of Beatles For Sale for £14(!) Gave it a clean and it plays like new![nb]I can't believe I got it in a High Street shop for that price![/nb]

Spent over 2 hours digging in one of those bloody 'Vintage Shops' yesterday, I had been in before and harrumphed
at the prices in the racks but because I had the afternoon free I thought I would kill some time going through the twelves.
I am now glad I did, as at £1.50 a pop I managed to pull allsorts of unexpected treasures, several promos & test pressings
including Portishead, Lamb and U2, loads of 90's stuff that seemed to have been dumped there and left to gather dust.
I'd like to think I've cleaned it out but I left lots of dance 12"s that I don't have a clue about, these are some of my finds.

Picked up the New York "This Charming Man" 12" for a couple of quid from the tip shop the other day.

Strictly speaking not relevant to the thread because it's a CD but I'd never heard any Aphex Twin before and thought I'd give them/him a go ... found Selected Ambient Works 85–92 for 20p.

I play everything! but I also get rid of stuff I don't like on a regular basis. I have DJ mates who come round to trade
and I clear out at car boots through the year too. It's not chaos here in the cellar, I am pretty fussy about what I keep!

Cheap vinyl things I have picked up over the weekend

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/P2080004_zpsixaacqdn.jpg)
UK pressed 7" in an 8" sleeve released on Social Records in 1963, it's a heady mix of fact and religious doctrine.



(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/P2080014_zps4f8dlbeq.jpg)

A Canadian folk sampler from Irving/Alamo Records, but I've never heard of any of the artists
and sadly there are no undiscovered Neil Youngs or Joni Mitchells amongst the 12 listed here.

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/P2080015_zpscig6zpv1.jpg)




(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/P2080007_zpsjsicjrgt.jpg)

I had never come across this before, but was familiar with Alan Hawkshaw's Library music
from the early 70's and this was a white label test pressing with info sheets enclosed too.

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/P2080008_zps2n5nrzji.jpg)




(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/P2080012_zpsjkrnapok.jpg)

Listening through this LP I'm still not sure what the connection between doctors and rugby is,
and the f#*%$& thing has beeps and farting noises over all the f%@#&* swearwords too!

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/P2080010_zpsakwmcyks.jpg)

This was mixed in with a pile of dance 12"s and was released on BBC Records in 1971
originally for use in schools but now more likely to be dropped into mixes and DJ sets.

Mixed joy in Milton Keynes today with nice a stash of Funk & Soul 7"s at 25p each
and the LP below which caught me by surprise considering what it could have been!

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/P2090047_zpsiscpcgcc.jpg)

This has very similar artwork to a super rare album (below) by the band Locomotive titled We Are Everything You Are (http://www.discogs.com/Locomotive-We-Are-Everything-You-See/release/1866421)

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/loco1_zpsjcacihoe.jpg)

However it turns out to be an Italian compilation which was released around the same time, shame...

I don't know what it's like where you're going, HG, but up until the beginning of this month, when there was a slight drop in events due to the intensity of the storms, car boots (& charity shops/flea markets) in this area have been cheeky little goldmines. There's been fewer people selling & buying (weather/time of year), which has meant there's been barely anyone looking for records. I've been regularly picking up some really strange-to-find records, some brand new / sealed LPs from only 2 or 3 years ago[nb]e.g. Dark Was The Night 4AD compilation triple LP recently at a car boot, stuck in the middle of a wedge of usual charity shop vinyl horseshit; Butthole Surfers' Cream Corn From The Socket Of Davis EP in a secondhand furniture & junk shop[/nb]. The last 2 weeks of January were pretty flat but last Saturday I picked up an odd cross section of stuff.

The Bongos 7" is a fantastic track. Francois Hardy EP is in superb condition. The SUPERSPIKE single is horrendously bad, as a tune/PR concept, but in near mint vinyl condition (whomever owned this either only ever played it once or never at all). Peter Gabriel inner & vinyl is immaculate but the sleeve's a bit grubby.

The Roxy Music find is interesting. The flip side is a blank Island label. I've never come across this before so don't know if it's a common occurance with Island/this LP or this misprint makes it a bit of an oddity. Shame there was no sleeve.

Most of the vinyl is in superb condition, with the sleeves flattened or a bit storage worn for the most part, mainly because it's been sandwiched between piles/collections of (dead people's?) records for years, probably, & preserved like in Jurassic Park with the mosquito & the amber.  All of this + about 10 more records were picked up for a total of £5 from 4 sellers who were basically selling piles of house clearance shit they'd picked up in bulk.

I can't find any reference on the net (probably just searching wrong) to an Island label (or any label) being blank like that. Is this a regular occurance? First I've ever seen.  I don't see any ref to this LP suffering from a printing screw up like this either. Any idea HG?

mispressings like this are uncommon but not rare, I have a few LPs with mispressed label and a lovely copy of
Wuthering Heights that has a similar blank B side.

The really rare copies are the ones mispressed with another artists music, like the Stranglers / Jam / Buzzcocks
singles that have other artists on the flips. I always hope to find a copy of this mispressed Hendrix (http://www.popsike.com/Jimi-Hendrix-Cry-of-Love-RED-VINYL-LP/2544691916.html) album!

Been pretty ill & house bound for most of February but was well enough last weekend to get out & experience some fresh winter air. Me & Mrs C got up sickeningly early & managed 3 car boots, a flea market, a charity dash, a secondhand shop rummage & a local HEAD Music 20% off sale over 2 days of me hobbling, huffing & retching. & we're glad we did as I met a couple of good contacts/dealers & picked up a decent bundle of vinyl. Also picked up a few hundred used 12" poly sleeves for £3, a lovely condition pair of black 1970s' record cases @ £5 for both & an old bingo caller's machine black wooden storage plinth (also a fiver), which is the perfect size for 100+ albums.

This is a small selection from what we picked:

No idea if this is period/year or band/release-specific, generic or a one off, but love this. Free/chucked in with a bundle.

No idea if this is period/year or band/release-specific, generic or a one off, but love this. Free/chucked in with a bundle

nice finds all round there DC, your 7" sleeve is by The Rolling Stones circa 73/74 could be either Angie or Brown Sugar

Cheers. I thought it might be Stones but hoped it wasn't as that would have made it all the more interesting. Did a bit of digging & according to a source this was originally the sleeve for the 1971 release of Brown Sugar.

Title: Re: Recent Vinyl Finds
Post by: DrunkCountry on March 10, 2016, 10:52:46 AM
Yesterday afternoon, while out to buy lunch, I saw a friend entering a charity shop, so I followed him in for a catch up. While there I idly flicked through the peak of a mountain of ratty Classical LP & 10" sleeves &, as I was leaving, the lovely old lady who runs the place grabbed my arm & asked if I wanted to see some more records.

She pointed me towards a large bag behind the shop counter & said she had no idea where it had come from but I was welcome to dig through. As soon as I got near it you could smell the mould. It was grim. The woman, recoiling from the correctly described stench, asked me if I wanted to just take the lot for free as all she would do, having niffed the cackawaft, was take them to a city dump. I had a quick scan, said yes & left a £5 donation (as much as I had on me to buy lunch) as a thanks.

Some of these were serious rough. 90% of the jackets (inside & out) & inner sleeves were covered in powdery or living mould. A lot of the jackets & inners were wrecked from bad storage / water damage / humans. A lot of the vinyl seemed to be covered in some oil-based film + lots & lots of mould.

I cannot stress enough how bad the smell was.

I spent a good part of yesterday evening cleaning what I could salvage (a lot of it, like the Gloria Estefan collection, was immediately binned bcause it was either tat or beyond saving). I even vacuumed inside the jackets. The smell of mould per record *still* persists (any tips for getting rid of it altogether will be greatfully received[nb]no, burning would not help[/nb]) but I've managed to rescue just over 60% of the haul. The plastic sleeves are mine, to stop any mould I may have missed transfering elsewhere.

I never did get my chips.

I came across a stash of donated Peter Cook & Dudley Moore vinyl in a charity
shop warehouse in Milton Keynes at the weekend along with other jazzy bits n bobs.


(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/P3210001_zpsntglqqkv.jpg)

This album cover looked curious if a little bland, but flipping it over it turns out to be a one sided promo LP
for a picture framing company plugged by Pete & Dud! Featuring 'a light hearted appraisal of Britain's
top group in the picture moulding business' with a live set from The Dudley Moore Trio at The Stables in Milton Keynes.

Another record I picked up on the strength of the sleeve (and the fact that it was 50p)
was this old Jazz album with Charlie Parker and friends.

(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/P3210005_zpsscomkri5.jpg)
In the same box was this early 70's smooth jazz thang produced by Sergio Mendes.



(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/P3120001_zpsmx52dw6n.jpg)
A bit of a more Latin vibe from Tony Hatch in '69 on this one.



(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/P3120008_zpsoevhg8vh.jpg)
I've a tatty copy of this which I used to have in my show box, but this will be an upgrade as it's nice & shiny clean.



(http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r165/shanequentin/P3120007_zpssdrla4uw.jpg)
Another album I couldn't leave in the box as there must be no-one within a 50 miles radius
who would even give this a second glance (for godsake I hope so)

some more scans from the Chinese Mental Music LP I picked up t'other day,
which has turned out to be pretty good and not that mental after all.
This track is Ringing of The Hungry Horse (http://"https://www.mediafire.com/?8b28cmbrase111w") (despite what the download says!)

I doubt I would listen to that circumcision track but I don't think there's any rules against posting a download.

Dunno if you looked at that Sentinel Records blog but the guy who writes it (Harvey Williams AKA Sarah Records' Another Sunny Day) is offering money for the gaps in his collection.

I picked up some pretty nice things on a recent trip to Milton Keynes charity shops
& a village garage sale earlier today. It really is incredible what comes out, however I missed
a load of Joy Division vinyl someone just dumped on the grass outside their house, a bloke
who was there minutes before me walking away with a bloody great grin on him.
But I was more than happy with the stuff I found, a whole stash of Indie LP's,
most still with their original Rough Trade stickers on. Several hand-made pressings and coloured vinyls,
including Sufjan Stevens, Sonic Youth etc, I wasn't complaining at £1 a pop but I had to get up bloody early!

Been ill for the last week or so, missed a lot of car boot sales. Felt a bit better on Monday, so we went for a walk & somehow ended up in a flea market & scored a ton of stuff incl. Ice Cube LPs, Massive Attack, Francoise Hardy & Nirvana. Haven't photographed that lot yet.

Below is a handful of LPs I picked up this afternoon from a charity shop. I was on the way back from a pharmacy & ducked in to avoid a sudden rain shower. I happened to overhear a conversation between the manager & a staff member about going through a new bag of records next on their to-do list. I asked if I could take a look in the bag, as she was in the middle of something else, & she agreed. I only had £8 on me, no wallet/card as I was only out to collect a prescription, so I asked the very nice young lady if she would hang on to a pile of them for me until I returned tomorrow (too sick to go back today) & she very kindly agreed. These were £1 each.

Rolling Stones - Italian 1st press
Beyond the Valley of the Dolls - 2nd repress UK
Blue Cheer - 2010 repress
Grateful Dead - 2nd UK repress
Budgie - UK first press
Dizzy Gillespie - 2013 release
Isaac Hayes - 1st US press
Beastie Boys - dbl gatefold 1st UK press

2010 & 2013 releases are in near mint condition. All else have a lot of sleeve wear but the vinyl is in pristine condition. Whoever owned these took very good care of the wax but didn't give a fig about the jackets or inners.

Fucking hell, how do your charity shops have Beastie Boys first presses?!

I've been chatting about this (+ the quality of vinyl in general showing up in local charity shops over the past few years) with a crate-digging friend, a flea market owner who got most of his stuff from house clearances & a secondhand shop owner who sees/buys records/small collections almost daily. The flea market fellah said he'd not seen any vinyl in a house he was clearing for a very long time, but he does see a lot on sale at the various steam/salvage fairs he attends. My mate & I have both seen a sharp decline in vinyl of all levels of quality/landfill at local car boot sales, but when it does appear it's almost the same scenario: relatives or ex-partners or people with no knowledge or interest in what they have for sale. You get the odd dealer/trader, but they're not so common these days. The secondhand shop guy often sees people who basically inherited[nb]sometimes 'inherited' means 'acquired in a burglary to support obvious drug habit'[/nb] a joblot of records & subsequently have no idea if they're worth anything & often have no idea what's in the collection as a whole, so they bring in a sample of the collection to gauge interest/get valued. If the sample contains general shite & they get a knock back on sale/value, the secondhand shop fellah thinks, despite being asked to make a list/bring in more to be looked at, most of these people go to the first they see, or go home & box/bag up everything first, & dump it at a charity shop. He's had a few people tell him they've done that with so-&-so's collection & I've found huge chunks of newly dropped off vinyl in charity shops, around where his shop is, over the years. Our 'we don't know but maybe it's like this' conclusion is that people are dying alone in far greater numbers or have relatives/friends/social services/whomever clearing out belongings are uninterested in vinyl & uninterested in trying to sell collections off piecemeal/at car boots etc., so are donating collections wholesale without even looking at/caring what's in them.

The above small collection I lucked upon also contained the following:

Whoever he/she was, they liked their rock/sludge/psych/ambient/beats/drug music. The ones that look like they're in good nick / released since 2010 are in fantastic, almost unplayed condition.

The flea market haul I mentioned in the first post above contained the following, which were obviously from the same collection (albeit much larger) given the multiple releases of a number of artists peppered throughout the massive stash I found hidden under a DVD shelving collapse:

It still amazes me that records like this can still turn up in charity shops for 50p,
this put in the racks of the Red Cross shop last Tuesday whilst you were at work!

it's a kind of Christmas card album featuring The Nutcracker Suite

Picked up these, amongst others, this morning in Splott Market car boot sale.

Very happy with this fellah. Not only is it a superb psyche-funk soul record, it's apparently worth a bit of bob, too. No idea who Ofege were when I saw it in a pile, but it felt cool. Vinyl is in delightful condition. £1.

I found another copy of this a number of months ago in a boot sale or something. Record's in great nick. Part of a 3x7"s for £1 buy.

1st UK press, '82 release. Shame there's no pic sleeve with it. Part of a 3x7"s for £1 buy.

The vinyl on both of these is near mint/looks totally unplayed. Gatefolds have a few pressure dings but in general are in lovely condition. 50p ea.

Various 7" singles I have picked up in charity shops and the odd indoor car boot

The Radio 1 single was a freebie with the (not very good) compilation album Ones On 1 - the speech extracts are from a 1971 'Behind The Scenes' documentary about the station. Funny way to celebrate your 21st Anniversary in 1988...

Few weeks ago I saw a proper knackered (sleeve = roached to shite & vinyl was a bit skate rink) copy of this album in a local car boot sale (we have them Thursday mornings, too, HG) for £1. I had no idea what it was (never seen or heard of it before) &, despite liking what I could make out of the sleeve art, I left it in the pile as I'm trying to stop buying trashed vinyl.

About a week ago a beautifully clean copy appeared in one of those 'recommended' menus on eBay with a starting price of 99p. I took a look at it as I recognised the sleeve but didn't bother to bid & didn't bother to look into its history etc. Over the next few days I noticed its price shooting up on my 'recently viewed' column, so I had a little look into the history of it. Fucking hell. Two for sale on Discogs are listed over £400 & £1,000 (pipe dreams for the sellers, usually, I know, but...) the eBay auction (few days to go, still) is currently at £444.44 with a couple of people battling it out in a little bidding war. The boot sale copy was a fuck of a long way from the condition of the one on auction, but I wish I'd picked the bugger up now if only to find out how the vinyl played.

And you call yourself a record collector??? Sorry, i couldn't resist!

It's a lovely piece of Irish psyche from the late 60's. For a quid, i would have snapped it up to just own a copy, despite being unplayable.

Move forward, regret can be painful!

1400 quid tho, jeez!

I've been busy of late so haven't been able to get out to as many car boot sales etc. as I'd like, especially frustrating as the weather has mostly been perfect for booting. Instead, I've been sporadically popping into charity shops & the like on my few travels away from the desk. I've also been browsing/cherry-picking local Gumtree private sale (deceased relative collections, mostly) adverts while procrastinating wildly instead of doing work.

Here's a bit of what I've picked up over second half of July. Prices vary between 50p & £2 per record.

The Numark TT-1510, complete with headshell/cartridge/stylus/counterweight/lid/7" adapter & in perfect working order, was picked up at a car boot sale for £5. Seller originally wanted £10 for it (which, given the condition, is a reasonable price) & I was going to pass as my arms were already laden with all sorts + I was on foot. The lady then said I could have it for a fiver if it meant she didn't have to take it back home. I managed to struggle with it.

Side note: our local HEAD Music record store (the only one of the brand left standing, I believe, following a raft of closures around the UK at the end of last year) currently has 4 parallel vinyl sales on. Which is unusual because, firstly, the amount of sales active at once &, secondly, because nobody (outside of a couple of secondhand shops) ever puts their vinyl stock on sale. It's standard around here to pay £19, £23, £25, £29, £32 for a new/repress release, depending on artist/album/number of discs. So to see a "25% off already reduced prices" sale + a "80% off rrp" sale + a "storage damaged sleeve" £10 sale & a "everything must go/once it's gone it's gone" sale all happening at once in one record shop is a bit of a lovely, if bank frightening, treat.  They themselves are not closing down, they just have an over-abundance of excess stock. It's all come from the warehouses attached to the other HEAD shops that closed, so they are piling high & selling low. The stuff on sale (& the pricing) is excellent. A lot of RSD releases, limited editions, imports, as well as releases from the past 2 or 3 years that maybe didn't sell as well. I've already picked up stuff by Langhorne Slim, Cinerama & The Wedding Present, Gruff Rhys, the dø, Sleigh Bells, Prince, Teitur, Bo Ningen & Savages, Crushed Beaks, Bills Wells & Aiden Moffat, Imogen Heap, Trembling Bells to name the ones I can recall. There's tons of stuff left & they seem to have an endless re-supply at the moment, so I think these sales are going to run for a while. Recommend you pop in & have a browse if you're in the area in the next few weeks.

Found this in a 25p bin today, I couldn't find anything about it online but as Argos came into being circa '73
with the death of 'Green Shield Stamps' (I can't be the only one here who remembers them!) I'd date this somewhere
around the mid 70's. It's got around 5 different jingles and songs on it, the best of which is this one (http://www.mediafire.com/download/kcqm3ppj5w5f3x1/Argos_jingle.mp3)
At a guess I'd say it was used as a promo maybe at some trade fair or other, I can't imagine them ever selling it.

Some bits and bobs from a busy weekend booting. I saw a huge box of CDs in the back of someones car
and asked to have a dig through, wondering how much they were she said "whatever, 25p each - 5 for a quid"
I pulled out some Eno, Beatles, Hendrix, Bonzos etc and there were about 50 so I offered £10 and she said
"oh for Christsakes just have the lot for a tenner!" so I came away with a lot of the buggers but I'm going to have
to do a cheap CD stall at a car boot somewhere as I now have instant stock!

Wandering around town I spotted some fella fixing his car on the roof of a cafe next door to a furniture store.


These 2 x EMI promo LP's were in the same box in a Northampton charity shop,
I can only assumed they had a lovely day out at the EMI factory, I know I would have.

I've had a good dig this morning but one record related thing I did find - for a pound!?! was this old 12" x 12" box
dated 1929 with the stamps and address etc, it's in lovely condition for it's age, I guess these were usually just
thrown away as I can't find any info on a similar box ont net. It's a keeper tho as I can put 78's in it!

sorry if this is a bit show offy but I bought 3 cases of albums yesterday that were so amazing
I have to show 1 of them off! I paid £100 for this one, and this is one of three,
and they are nearly all EX+ so I think I probably did OK. I'd met a guy at a car boot
who told me his mate had died and he'd ended up with his LP's and didn't want them.
I paid him what he wanted so we were both happy.

I have been to a boot and 2 auctions today and it's only Thursday, mind you they were shit but hey,

This pressed all my buttons and is a pretty catchy tune that Chas & Dave would have been proud of : download (https://www.mediafire.com/?irtmf2o1tlu2hmz)

A woman who has been clearing out her husbands vinyl for quite a while at the boots now turned up
with lots of boxes of LP's which most folks fell on, but I went for the singles. I don't think I missed much
with the albums, there were some Reggae but they were very tatty so I was happy at £3 for these demos.

I picked up some lovely records at the boot this morning (pics soon) and this one is very unusual.
No date on it but it could be 60's, it would have only been available via a stall by the cliffs and came with inserts for a book.
If anyone knows more or has been there please share, I have posted it onto the Minack Theatre FB page as it's still very popular,
although I had not heard of it before.

I had my pick of the 7"s and even bought a couple of LP's off her, in fact 95% of these came from her 50p boxes.

on CRMK and he was excited at the thought of playing stuff he finds at car boots. He was a lovely fella and he certainly knew his stuff also

The boots may be over for the year but the charity shops are still coming up trumps.

What country are the belly dancer records from? These can be quite desirable by hip hop heads for samples.

most are Greek, some are American a couple are Lebanese - I've listened all the way through a few a already and can hear the appeal but by Christ they tend to sound very alike

I won a box of around 50 LP's including Miles, Groundhogs, Gentle Giant, Beefheart etc for £80 at the auction recently,
which included some really nice gems in great nick including a whole run of 70's Herbie Hancock albums.

the charity shops were not so kind this week except for this VG copy in a 50p bin

It does exactly what it says on the sleeve

An auction lot threw up some odd stuff earlier today, this curio being the pick of the box, featuring Barry 'Van der Valk' Foster
reading cosmic poetry in a Peter Wyngarde stylee over gentle light jazz and funky flute. I couldn't find much about it other than it does
turn up occasionally and it's such a chilled and lovely listen, it's also fully signed by John Hayward, Giovanna Gottardo, Frank Stafford & Barry Foster.

nice find in a box of old 78's this morning, From His Master's Voice's Gramophone & Record Catalogue, Feb - Mar 1911:
"For the first time in the history of the Talking Machine industry, a genuine record has been obtained of a bird.
The Nightingale in question is the property of Herr Carl Reich, of Berlin, and was taken from its nest shortly after hatching, and reared by hand."

really cheap finds from the Reading record fair yesterday, unsurprisingly nothing more than £1


(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/PC050015.jpg)

The future saint had a go at the charts with this EP in '79

(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/PC050016_1.jpg)




(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/PC050017.jpg)

Another crumpled wrinkly face on this 7" from '73

(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/PC050018.jpg)



(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/PC050022.jpg)

I showed this test press LP find to a dealer at the fair and for some reason he gave me a right old bollocking for buying it!



(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/PC050029_1.jpg)

I got more funny looks for buying this too, but some folk can be a bit weird at record fairs.
The rear of the sleeve indicates it's for Capricorn's, I assume the full set has the same front cover?

(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/PC050030.jpg)



a few 50p finds

(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/PC050019.jpg)

(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/PC050020.jpg)

An odd choice of backing band perhaps and it may even be signed!?

(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/PC050021.jpg)



(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/PC050023.jpg)

Best find of the day was this old fanzine from '91 which had the Cocteau's/Lush/Moose flexi freebie intact

(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/PC050025.jpg)

The T-shirt will probably be worth a few quid now too

I won these 2 x 102 year old 78's in an auction last night for £1 each

(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/PC070001.jpg)
They are both from 1914 this one has parts 1&2 on each side :  listen (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ELJYpifpEug)

(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/PC070002.jpg)

This one is very scarce and I could find nothing about it online, the flip is a soldiers singalong,
blissfully unaware they were no doubt marching towards their deaths.

HG re the M. Organ 45, who did the art work on that (assuming it's not Searle). Not Hewlett?

I assumed it to be Ronald Searle as in the Molesworth books

Yes, more bloody records bought in charity shops, a record fair and an Xmas treat to myself online as I can't rely on Santa to deliver.

(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/2_10.jpg)
The Crauford pub in Milton Keynes has a busy fair for such a small venue.

(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/PC120004.jpg)
4 x new vinyl bargains at under £8 each, the guy had loads but many I already had.

(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/1_10.jpg)
Happy punters buying my £2 - 3 x £5 records

(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/PC120005.jpg)
I probably wasted my pound on this US sports album but it came with a cool booklet of other sports albums
(which I'm a sucker for) and inside the LP were also a newspaper and the original mailing envelope and a letter!

(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/PC120012.jpg)

that is one hell of a big trophy

Another nice £1 find was this spoken word/SFX album in Quad!

(http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb7/shanequentin2/PC120015.jpg)



I can never resist the odd single...

I'd never come across this school musical album or the label before, it had a massive cast according to the sleeve notes.
Check out this download Leather Girls (https://www.mediafire.com/?57bqc3qw90mqkdx)

In the same box was this heavy vinyl test pressing of a really lovely recording of seasonal music.
