    Unfortunately I thinks heads took that to the Instagram.com

    My finds in the past few years haven't been all that worthy.  I stopped buying collections years a go and the stuff I buy at the local spot are clean classics.

    PS.  Bill... Nice find on the West Oak Lane 45s.  I had the 12" which I sold for a more than fair offer.

    Thanks. I had a copy of the West Oak Lane 45 a few years ago and traded it. It's definitely a tough one to find. The 12" is even more raer I think.

    I have been meaning to post finds for a while but a combination of not going digging that much recently and being lazy about taking photos has kept me from doing it

    I usually post to Instagram and Flickr at the same time which makes it easier to grab a copy to share later.

    I'll bite, let's turn this into a proper findz post! 

    Here's a handful of records I've brought home the last couple of months...

    (For some reason, I can't delete or edit the images. Sorry for all the double posts!)

    Hey,

    I don't dig as frequently as I used to do (because I already have around 12,000 LPs).  Typically, my finds come from business trips where I slip off to record stores in the town I'm visiting.  I have found a grip of good shit over the last several years, much of which I freak on the mixes I post on Mixcloud.  I'll be sure to post the finds I get from these junkets moving forward.  I apologize for not sharing this information more actively.  I'll be more vigilant to keep the 'Strut vibrant and informative to the masses.

    Peace,

    Big Stacks from Kakalak

  • Been wanting to post some great finds since the fall, but I just moved two months ago and haven't had many opportunities to even look through a lot what I've picked up.   Some highlights, starting with a pair from this morning's very wet flea market:
     

    Don't know a damn thing about reel-to-reel but I know you rarely see 'em and I wasn't gonna pass up a sealed Curtis.

    Was pretty happy to find this for $10 in a store around Xmas time:

    From a trade with a friend, really like this one:

    Found these from the same seller at the end of last year's flea market season:


    They were a little rough but man, I love these photos, I just never see this kind of thing around here.  They cleaned up nice and look good in new frames!

    Not exactly a field find but was very excited to even see a copy of this on eBay after wanting it for years.  Was more excited when I turned out to be the only bidder.

    I wasn't necessarily hunting for one of these (I've had a Vestax for years) but happened to notice one on the 'Bay for a good price and I bit.  Gotta say, these things are the way to go for flea markets/tag sales and other field excursions. 

    It's already proven extremely valuable, saving me from buying stuff that looked exciting (but sounded like crap) and steering me towards the good stuff like this $1 find from a few weeks ago:


    But nothing can top coming up with this one under very strange circumstances:

    In November I paid a stupid high price for a 45 on Ebay I had wanted for years.  Maybe the all-time top price for it on popsike.  After I win the seller says he has a bunch of other 45s from the same source and he doesn't wanna sell 'em separately, asks if I might be interested.  I take a look at some photos and there's definitely some cool stuff in there, half of it is like a 1965 time capsule of obscure radio promos.  I start researching 'em and when I got to the Aviators my eyes damn near fell out.  I think he wanted an average of $3-4 per record so it was a no-brainer.  After he ships 'em I'm biting my nails, thinking it's too good to be true--they're cracked or something, but they arrive and all the promos are just dead mint.  Nothing else was in the same league as the Aviators but I was quite surprised that this was probably the next most valuable piece in there:

    Besides this being incredibly weird and interesting, can you give me a translation of krankmachmachine? I don't think "sickening machine" is accurate.

    This is a perfect example of the beauty of the german language. You can combine different words - even of differnt word classes - to form a completely new word this way.
    "Sickening machine" would be the right translation. The whole lyrics of this song are quite spaced out and dark and will scare and dazzle most children, I guess. I would really like to know what artists were thinking when they recorded this. Unfortunatly this is currently the only song from the album which you can listen to online. Imho there are even better songs on it. If there is any interest, I can rip the whole thing and upload it.

    yes pls. That would be great! The guy behind it was Ludger Edelkötter who did tons of Xian project related krautrock in the 70's...

    Congrats on this one! Looks great! I found a ton of stuff recently here in NYC, most notable would be the George De Leon Y Sus Amigos LP from Panama...

    i buy far less these days because i have less time to look and less space in the haus. these are a few from the last couple of months that i'm listening to a lot.



    top two are re-issues - or actually the Tusk is A THIRD AMAZING version of the album (came out as part of the CD super-boxset that recently dropped).  it's a whole new Tusk... more jangly.  highly recommended for those who love the album.

    the sangria is dope if you slow it a bit.  i got the miucha/jobim/buarque in curitiba last week. (thanks to the strtrs who sent tips!)  got some nice brazilian stuff there - i'm pretty basic with brazil but i got to listen to a lot of new stuff this time.  wish i brought the portable!

    the high note is an early sonya spence 7" that's a total mother's day anthem. she's scolding her thankless child, telling them that for 17 years she raised them, "no charge". the dub is tight too.

    assi que dodo is my joint.


  • ketanketan Warmly booming riffs 3,105 Posts


    There's a ill Wagon Christ sample on the Celi Bee.



    And slowed-out Closer, Closer is really doing it for me on that record.  

    The Scoob and Scrap is good.  I didn't know that Scrap rapped tbh (I have all the Scoob 12"s though).  Kane must have wrote his rhymes on this.  No shots - he raps really well, but it just sounds like Kane's cadence.  



    (Edit: SCRAB Lover!)

    The Home Team is a NY record put out by Luke.  S'okay.

    PLEASURE

    I scored big time and aquired the pinnacle of record collections. Without exagerating this is the best I've ever come across. Packed with Jazz, Krautrock & Psych grails.
    Every rare Pink Floyd record known to men. In total it around 3500 records. This being said, my flat is a mess know. Stacks of vinyl everywhere. I'm about to list them on discogs, which is quite a task. I already listed around 300 records. If you want to have a look, just check my newest 300 or so additions in my shop.
    https://www.discogs.com/seller/Permabulker/profile

    Almost half of the collections consists of classical music, though. There must be some monster rarities in there. But I'm absolutley clueless when it comes to this stuff. I have no idea how to spot the good stuff and how to sell it. But they must go, asap. I need some space to breath again. Can anyone give me a rough guide how to pick out the proper rarities, before I flog them in bulks on ebay?
    Thanks in advance!
