    this shelf for processing incoming records 

    Last night my fiance said that we should setup another shelf so that we have somewhere to put more records. She's definitely the one for me.

    "Angels" is a compilation of themes from British televison programs. It has "Quiller", "The Liver Birds" (also with open drums) and the title track theme which is "Motivation" by Alan Parker. There's others from the KPM stable too. "Jim'll Fix It", "On The Move" and "Dad's Army" made me crack smiles. "Gorky Park" soundtrack by James Horner has a feel similiar to that Jerry Fielding and Lalo Schifrin "Dirty Harry" comp and Moroder's "Midnight Express". "Emperor of the North (Pole)" is a 10" record for radio broadcast use with three 8 x 10 photos in the jacket and an "open ended interview" script with commentary from Lee Marvin and Ernest Borgnine to promote the Robert Aldrich film. Similiar deal with "The Domino Principle". Alceu Valenca's debut wasn't really a "find". It was a purchase from a local Mr. Bongo sell off based on a ppadilha recommendation with some extra money. Same deal with the Ednardo, albeit much cheaper. The '75 samba comp, Zombies ("Odyssey and Oracle" in its entirety plus their early singles, just with the orange Epic label), the Italian jazz comp (has a slow burner called "Pupa O Crisalide" by the Enrico Rava Septet), Educated Homegrown (mixed bag produced by Dave Brubeck's sons which has a title track with the breaks) and Franco Micalizzi soundtrack for the "The Tree with Pink Leaves" (a dramatic film which is a far cry from his material for those Lenzi crime flicks around the same period) were found for a dollar. Continuing the college jazz band theme thanks to a former conductor peppering his collection around local shops, I found the LAVC '68 (nothing funky, but has a suite called "The Anti-Christ" in different time signatures), the LACC '76 (versions of "God Bless The Child" and Coltrane's "Impressions") and the Louisville Orchestra (one of a series of 100+ classical/avant-garde records on First Edition, this one really out there experimental electronic music by Merrill Ellis) and Clark '81 (nice take on "Manteca"). Gibbs and Burton is stellar fusion, one of their collaborations from '74. Barbara McNair is the last of her 60s LPs and has most soul. And unsurprisingly isn't as easy to find as her earlier ones.

  • Oh! I like the last song on that King Errisson. It's odd to me, sort of sitting between genres, but kind of sweet with heavy drums. A bit like a backing track but it's nice.


    Not finds, per se, but I just picked up a couple fun new releases:


    and from Four Flies Records a 45 compilation/reissue thing of two "breaksyo" italian soundtrack/library tracks:

    Those Italian library tunes are great! Reminds me when my Dad and I attended those annual Formula One races in Long Beach. Here's my weekend Goodwill run, with the exception of Reverberi which was a gift from a friend among others. "Halcyon Days" is University Of Miami Concert Jazz Band '77-'79. Los Graduados is cumbia which bites that one Blood, Sweat & Tears album cover.

    It's a cool record. I had never heard of it and saw it at a shop here in Austin. As soon as I put the needle down on the first track I knew I was going to buy it. It has fuzz psych rock guitar fused together with avant garde jazz and drifts back and forth between the two.

    My local charity shop had a glut of Christian records this weekend - kinda feeling this:

    Oh, my copy of this just came in too - missed it when it first dropped

    that Bayeté is pretty heavy, I like it

    Found that Bayeté! Library records were the $2-$4 table scraps from Amoeba's bulk sell off. I'm sure sought after volumes were put aside or sold before they hit the floor. However, it was fun to sift through and taking cheap gambles. John Cacavas has "March Popkof" and some other cool tracks. Janko Nilovic has "Blue Stone" which also has been sampled a few times.

    There are X amount of them all with the same cover so you need a memory like a steel trap to remember if it's one you already have.
    I'm all about that ill Marc Rosen ish:

    Returned last night to see what was left or added. I also was able to talk a floor manager into allowing me to use my portable. I was disappointed that there seemed to be every early 70s Boosey & Hawkes "Music For Film, Radio & Television", except ones like "Drama"/3052. "Big Band", "Happy Music" and "Young Days" sound what they look like, but good for a couple of bucks each and have their groovy moments of organ or electric piano. "Optimist" (Sonoton) is what I would expect from '81. "Musical Exploration" is from the same year but synths put to better use. UBM has an "Action" side of 30 second segments for commercials. The one by Claudio Szenkar called "Driving" mimics "I'm Gonna Love You Just A Little Bit More" and was put on Dusty Fingers 15 (the same one which included "Tournament" from the aforementioned B&H volume). Not pictured is another Omnisound: "Sparkle".

  • Color me ignorant but I had no idea Amoeba had any library LPs at all! Not a bad haul for the price.

    They don't usually. This was a one-off thing. I heard that the owners of a building which housed a production company down the street on Sunset back in the day were renovating, found the collection and brought it over on a couple of pallets. One of the inventory people apparently did not have the time or patience and priced them to move.

  • Damn, there might be some real lucky fuckers who dug that! I just figured they were trying to clear long-held inventory before they move to slightly smaller premises (I believe)
