I'm in serious envy of that K-Tel Pirate Radio Mr. Green

it's like listening to an actual show - timechecks, ads, cheesey cheekiness,
mind you the Tony Blackburn - Radio Caroline side is the best!

A UK pressing of Court of the Crimson King? If it is a clean early copy, you have obtained a big-money record for £1.

I guess the eBay pickers were asleep at the switch on this one...


ahh a later Polydor press (unfortunately) the folk who run the auction
know nothing about records, it's all numbers to them (thank god eh? lol)

I stopped by my local thrift today to see if they had put out any new records.
There was a handful of LP's (mostly easy listening) and a couple of 45 sets.
I always look in the 45 sets because I've found that people will sometimes mix in a few oddball records into them or even have completely different records.
I open the first one and discover that "Annie Get Your Gun" has a nice set of.... "Annie Get Your Gun" 45's. Yuck.


I open up Vaughn Monroe and see a yellow 45 in cellophane. Now I know the RCA color codes for the original 45's so that means it's a kid's record.



I look deeper into the box and see that it's actually an assortment of colored RCA 45's all in their original cellophane sleeves.



The bottom record in the box was one of the hard to find orange R&B 45's!



Arthur "Big Boy" Crudup, KATIE MAY / BOY FRIEND BLUES
All the records were mint. A nice little set of very early 45's!
So it pays to look in those 45 set boxes!

Absolutely! I check every one I find - my advice for that came from a now-deceased friend who said he'd found a few gem hidden in box sets.
The only one I actually own, though, is the "Singin' In The Rain" soundtrack - HAD to have that.

That is why I check lps too,sometimes a 45 will be stuck inside an lp.Nice find when it happens.

I'm always intrigued by how some of the records I find actually got to the spot I found them at. I'm guessing these were given out with the purchase of some of the first RCA 45 players. The black popular and green country records are missing, so the original owner kept those along with the Vaughn Monroe records in a record book and put the ones he wasn't interested in back in the box and put it in a closet and forgot about it.

A couple of weeks ago, I found a 10 inch Blue Note Miles Davis record at another thrift. Wow! I checked the record inside and it turned out to be a Prestige Miles Davis record. A nice record in NM condition, but dang, it would have been nice to have the original Blue Note! So somewhere there's a Prestige sleeve with a Blue Note record in it.

Random phone pics of finds from the past few weeks...


30 cents.

Same spot as Esquires. Didn't know it. But still grabbed it.

http://youtu.be/-010jpIdYzM

More from the Esquires sale….

Some okay pieces. Was really excited to find that Mancini record. Fun stuff.

Carrolls Mood is a longtime want from out this way. Super moody teen garage. The Cords is a Norman Petty production from Amarillo. Traded for these.

From a lot of jukebox stock a local purchased. Long time want I first heard on God Less America.

http://youtu.be/pobh9HI-jpY

Less common Mouse and the Traps 45, not that any of their records ever turn up in the wild. Even more Dylan than "Public Execution".

Most folks go for the boogaloo flip, but I really like the pictured side.


Been having some luck finding promo records at estate sales as of late.



Snow has some neat tracks. 1st cut is RIFF CITY.


Not the best shape, obviously, but Bo Diddley at 78!

And I complain that I never find anything.

Found a bunch of sealed DGG red stereo records at the flea market today. None appear to be in high demand, but I checked the label on the two that were open and they are the Alle Hersteller pressings. I also found Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell You're All I need on Tamla, which made my day.

In 17 years of living here I've never once seen a wild copy of Carrolls Mood. The leader of the group was mum on having copies when I asked him via email. I know of a cracked copy that turned up in Lubbock last year. And my copy either came from a former collector or was found in College Station along with a copy of the Clue on Byron... a former Midland resident no doubt. I only have mine because my trading buddy had a spare after the College Station find.

I don't own the Roy Jr. on Hickory, but should. I remember someone else posting about that 45 here and I joined in on the conversation.
