Too keep things organised, a brand spanking new May Finds thread for all diggers. I'll start with the results of last weeks' field work:

A blogger had the Walter Carlos album in his top 5 psych-all-time list so i was happy to pick that one up a few days later.
Francis Bebey is great but i was hoping for another 'new track' LP, which it's not.
The Rolf Kuhn LP is allright.

The Ravi Shankar is great,
and yet another LP by Freddy Cole nobody knows.

Escalade is decent library stuff,
Music for Lovers LP is real Euro funk :shh:

KH carnival music has a really good island funk tune on it,
Pierre Henry is a 1968 compilation of his electronic work and really blew my mind,

Find of the month for me, an OG Dr. Strangely Strange on Vertigo, inhouse white label test pressing with double sided press sheet and band picture included. Couldn't find this one on the internet! Sleeve has some damage, notably the band's name is ripped off the sleeve. The stamp on the label is from the studio where the album was recorded. The vinyl has machine stamped matrix numbers.

If anyone needs this rare psych folk piece (cash/trade): PM!

    I was pretty happy to find this for a buck this morning, and since my mum's name is Judy it was a cool little synchronicity given that we're having mothers day dinner tonight!

    Yes, i mean this particular pressing. There are some extensive sites on the Vertigo discography where this pressing is not included.

    More store credit used by me yesterday as well as a 45 charity shop haul.

    Not had a chance to listen to any of these yet could well be hopeless, great covers though!!


    The rest are all trade credit:

    One nice 45, not seen this before??




    The Billy Wright is stunning! Chocolate Milk is a long time want, Time Machine is sublime!

    Eddie Foster is actually Frank Wilson pitched up a couple :lol:
    Love the look of the white M-Pac label
    New Rickey Calloway is tight.
    Strong Hank Ballard double sider.
    Lee Dorsey is essentially "Ride Your Pony" again but with different vocal.
    Record Kicks 45s are good new uptempo funk soul things. They sent me the CD which comped my Mission 45 & threw those 2 in as well.

    I love Bollywood LP's, The covers are always artwork to me and the music is dope.
    There are so fucking many of them, I wonder whats the total of just one year in the 60/70 or 80's.
    Also what the rarest are , just outta curiousity.


    ps
    diggin the zacar orchestra

    Jamal,

    There are lots of issues wrt bolly records. The covers and music are awesome for sure and are def eye candy if you get the right osts. Some covers can fool you w great mod art, and then have dull derivative music.

    India is a country w weather conditions that are not conducive for vinyl preservation. Most sellers on ebay slang tattered copies of records that sound like theyve been skated on asphalt. Lots of soundtracks get comped for the one instrumental 'title music' track, but the rest of the album may contain nothing but traditional music.

    As for whats the rarest, a lot of osts would be destroyed if the movie was a flop, so any rare scores from the 60-70s can go for loot. Some examples: doctor x, bhoot bhangla, saas Bhi kabhi bahu thi, jaise ko taise, mr romeo, naya nasha ep,

  • fckvwlsfckvwls 178 Posts
    These are just osts im talking about. There are a lot other rare indian records (jazz raga style, simla beat, the savages, other garage band ish from 70s, as well as the infamous charanjit singh record if you believe it exists...)

    Thanks for the info!

    Yeah I certainly've been fooled by their covers a couple of times.. cover yells out banger ..music not..

    didnt know about the flops e.g ost records, but now you mentioned it, it seems logical.

    there are so many ost Bolly LP's cause those dudes make a movie every other hour haha.
