Not seen very well are Jon Anderson's "Olias of Sunhillow" and Ice (self-titled '73 Prestige LP by those better known collectively as the Layfayette Afro Rock Band). "Musak of the 80s" is a dollar turd, like the The Realistics, as it suggests (studio band "New Edition" doing instrumental covers of 'Bette Davis Eyes', 'Endless Love', etc for satellite radio broadcast in supermarkets and such) but it has a version of "The Magnificent Seven" theme and I like the jacket design. "Walk Don't Run" is another winner from Quincy for Cary Grant's retirement film set during the '66 Olympics in Japan.
and a nice stack of 45s
I was heartbroken when my first Sylvers I LP arrived in the post snapped in half...
Finally I got hold of I, II & III all sealed.. and I keep the broken copy on my mantelpiece
EDIT: sippin something nice and feelin so mellow....
Whoa! Niagra. What did that put you back?
even the though the price was a steal, somehow over the past year or so, a hundo has become a totally reasonable amount of cash to me to be dropping on a single record.
pat martino is boss and his story is truly inspiring.
Lots of great stuff in that haul, dude. Nice work.
That Skorpio record is the tits.
Mini is also great:
[strong]Burgess Meredith (as The Penguin) - The Capture [/strong]
Now, I'm no Batman fanatic, but as soon I heard this record I immediately had to grab it. Listen to the clips below, it is basically the first ever gangsta rap record. Burgess Meredith describes, in spoken word rhyme how he gets nabbed by Batman, and escapes from Jail.
also, the beats are really tight!
Also some joints from Japan
[strong]Sandii – Eating Pleasure [/strong]
First pressing with alternate sleeve design. This was replaced within weeks with the swimsuit picture sleeve, which you'll see on the youtube clips. In the image above I've pulled out the lyric sheet and the Japanese translation sash, which are in perfect condition.
This is an odd-ball electronic J-pop record from Sandii who appears to be a bit of a long standing sexy Japanese pop star. Most of the record is pretty standard stuff, but the reason I got it is the following track.
An amazing spacey pop track that could be from any time in the future, present or past:
Drip Dry Eyes:
[strong]The Breakfast Band - Dolphin Ride [/strong]
The breakfast band are a UK/Japan instrumental jazz funk band with a tropical tinge. They use steel drums and the like to give off an island vibe.
[strong]Tatsuro Yamashita – For You [/strong]
Japanese yacht rock right here, by Tatsuro Yamashita. Apparently he's very popular with Vaporwave producers. Smooth jazz and disco vibes. Very pleasant.
that Erasmo LP is fucking awesome, better than Sonhos e Memorias IMO. I'm guessing that's on the not-so-cheap list of records Day picked up, otherwise he got incredibly lucky.
yeah that Erasmo record is maybe the best in that pile?
Hmm...I mean, it's all open to personal opinion. I prefer Sonhos e Memorias over Carlos, Erasmo, but they're two totally different vibes. The Mazzotti is no slouch either.
Vento Sul is one of the best finds IMO. I was able to grab all the records in the first pic for the price of one of the Valle's.
Btw, does anybody have a copy of Quem e Quem they wanna trade/sell me?
I've got a copy, but can't part with it.
There's one on the cogs for 175 GBP.
Looks like I need to find that Erasmo LP sometime... Love that Orlandivo as well.
Here's my two faves from this month. I wish I could say I got the Mireilles at a flea market in Sao Paulo, but sadly not. It's a long time want got.
Wow, I love that Danilo Caymmi record! Especially these two tracks:
Too bad he hasn't been as prolific as his dad. I think he only released one solo album in the 70's?
Cosine! One of my desert island joints.
Thanks for the vid
