some sweet finds at the recycling depot this morning, on top of a nice fish tank
ornament and an old newspaper from 1912. An odd mix of Jamaican Calypso,
Jazz Blues + an unusual 78rpm - all 50p each!



Jamaican issue released on Dynamic in 1976







this could be early 70's the track Rope was a single taken from it










Blues Jazz in Quad from 1973 in a beautiful gate-fold sleeve







great sleeve for this Jazz Fusion LP from 1977







with a bit of research I discovered this dates from around 1944





a hip vicar talks about the history of Jazz from 1926 to 1952

Yesterday I crossed another one off of my yellowing want list...The Monkees - Changes, US Colgems. It looks unplayed, no spindle marks on the label, no stylus tracks between the lead-in grooves, and it's still in shrink. That leaves only one Monkees album left on the list - Birds Bees, US Colgems mono pressing.

Heh, I found a UK RCA Victor stereo copy (SF 7948) way back in Jan 1971, for $1.99 in a PX in Ft. Dix NJ ... it's the only Monkees LP that I have.

From Sunday's record show - $31 spent, not a lot worth keeping, but I can't complain about...
The Dells - Shy Girls (Vee Jay) - DJ copy - yes, I know there's a PS... no, it wasn't on it.
Shirley Matthews - Big-Town Boy (Atlantic) - recommended by a friend - GREAT early Spector sound
Stevens & Grdnic - Exercise Till You Die (Laff) - haven't added to the Novelty box in a long time...
Underbeats - Book Of Love (Soma) - low-key 1964 cover from Minneapolis
Simms Twins - Double Portion Of Love (SAR)
Supremes - My Heart Can't Take It No More (Motown) - my copy's G+ at best, but try to find THIS one
Chuck Berry - Oh, What A Thrill (Atco)
The Naturals - Hey Fellas (Smash) - here's a hybrid: doo-wop, circa 1964, with fuzz guitar!
Shorty Long - Night Fo' Last (Soul) - I can easily find an upgrade, but for a dime, it was cool
Blackjack - Love Me Tonight (Polydor) - bought it for grins - it's rock with Michael Bolotin on vocals
One for the research pile: "The Black Lion", a 60-second plug for some clothing store (or men's clothes department of a store) - might have been a Cuca Recording Studio product based on the catalog #
One for the "why did I BUY this?!?" pile: "Mother Goose For Shabbos".

A follow-up to my own post: "The Black Lion" was apparently a "modern" clothing department within Olson & Veerhusen (the edge of the label mentions these names), a men's clothing store in downtown, Madison, WI - although I wasn't able to find anything specific on The Black Lion, the store itself was in business for decades and the original building is a Dane County historic landmark. The catalog number of the record is "J-6582" which is suspiciously in the series of Cuca Recording Studios catalog numbers - the copyright date 1965 matches the catalog # (Cuca used the mastering dates as their catalog numbers, at least at this time, so it would've been cut on August 2, 1965) - and being that this was for a Wisconsin clothing store, I can be safe to assume this IS a Cuca product. Ain't the internet educational?

Been trying to go through my collection and get rid of records that I deem to be of a lower musical quality/value, especially my LPs (and I just donated about a dozen 78s that I lack to ability to play) and therefore am also trying to limit my purchases to stuff I really, really want, but looked through the records at Salvation Army today and picked up two great ones:

Harmonium - Le Cinq Saisons

Harmonium - L'Heptade (2xLP)

French folk/prog from Quebec, have had their first two albums on CD for a few years and was always on the lookout for Cinq Saisons, but I couldn't pass up L'Heptade (their third) either at $1 each.

Hit an estate sale late in the morning in Midland on Saturday and was surprised to walk in and find stacks of 45s still sitting around. Even more surprised to start turning up cool records like the Shields and "B-I-Bickey Bi Bo Bo" by Gene Vincent in the first handful. Never seen that one around here. It was obvious that noone in the know had really perused the records. Turns out my local dealer man was under the weather this weekend and didn't hit the sales. A few highlights at 30 cents a pop.


Big Star records NEVER EVER show up out here in West Texas. I'm okay with the theme to "That 70s Show". I've been on a small Big Star kick as of late, anyhow.

An Excello record that ain't the Marigolds or Slim Harpo… interesting.

These two Texas bad boys were back to back in the 4th or 5th handful.


The Travelin' Texans disc is missing a hunk, but finding it wild is neato. I could throw down $50 or so for a mint copy, but how is that fun? Been wanting this one for 15+ years after first hearing it on a volume of Desperate Rock n' Roll. Aaah… back when one could sing about getting popped on a jailbait charge. This is country star Billy Walker, btw.

Weldon Rogers was my favorite find of the sale. Killer remake of Carl Perkins' remake of "Everybody's Trying To Be My Baby". Hot hick rocker out of Big Spring that I've REALLY been wanting for some time. Only does about $50 or so when it pops up in far nicer shape, but I'm happy at the moment with this well loved but nice playing cheapie.

Usually if you see a Shields 45 out here it's on Dot and it's "You Cheated". This ain't one and both sides is dreamy doo wop KILLERS.

I grabbed the Bobby Brant having forgotten that Bobby was a Poe Kat with Big Al Downing. Mayhaps not as cool as a White Rock original, but I'll not complain…

Emitt Rhodes actually came from a second estate sale… great Beatles pop. I've dug the album for a few years now.
http://youtu.be/pFOA4URZFVQ
Was excited to see a Slim Willet peeping through the middle of a stack and even more excited to find it was on the super tough Edmoral label out of Abilene.

Neato collection that yielded some Hank 78s on MGM, a funk thing on Buddah by Landlords and Tenants, and a few other decent odds and ends. I'd guess the early stuff belonged to mom and dad and the later records the kids. Any sale where you can nab Big Star AND Texas rockabilly is a great sale in my book.

Oh yeah…. also grabbed this oddball at the same sale as Emitt Rhodes. No picture sleeve, though…
