    I'd like to walk into my local thrift and come out with an OG Sounds of Liberation, but until then the re-ish I bought will have to do. Khan Jamal's Drum Dance to the Motherland would be nice as well: both filed side by side at the thrift please.

    Like Rey, could use a clean Frimpong as well.

    Off course, there's a lot of rare records I'm still after, but this is my nr. 1 holy grail:



    Open Sky Unit, one of the rarest Belgian jazzfunk records. Such an amazing record. I'm from Belgium and I haven't seen a single copy for sale in real life...



  • i love this song almost as much as my ex gf.

    This was reissued at some point right?

    This is up there with a few others that I will probably never own.

    I remember Beutiful World Syndicate in Philadelphia had this a few years back. I never bothered to ask how much it was, but that's probably the last time I'll ever see it in the field.

    Hey I got that. I only listened to one side and don't really want to keep it, but I can't be bothered to sell it to you either, sorry.

    This was actually a greeting card and never came with a record, there are 8 in the series I think. We had them all on the wall at one time, but now it seems one or two have gone missing.

    I think I have them all now.
    A few seem to be harder to find, Communist Party Songs, and Piano Pieces I think were the last I added.
    They sell pretty cheap. (Which is why I think Pickwick was making a joke.)

    I think it's safe to laugh now

    I found one of those which was a homosexual themed thing, had two guys holding hands on the cover, it was kind of weird to see such a brazen artifact, definitely non-PC.

  • i dont even care any more, but ive been wanting a copy of sound of sunforest for a decade plus
    and trinikas and byrdie green - sister byrdie and mohawks Champ LP. all long time wants that when i finally get them it will be anticlimactic.



    my real holy grail is to really come up at a flea market....like buying 3 crates of exciting records for peanuts. hasnt happened in years, but i'm just waiting for that mythical load to show up

    the expos - "your best friend and me"

    had the chance to coppeth last time i was in chicago, but had no transport to where it laid.

    it's not particularly valuable (steady $400 record, pricey but not ZOMG) ...
    it's not especially rare, turns up on eBay a few times a year ...

    but damned if I haven't wanted this 45 since I was a teenager, almost 25 years:




    .

    Greg Cartwright of the Reigning Sound/Oblivians sometimes sits in with us at our DJ nights and he plopped this on the turntable the other night and I was like "you bastard!" A long time want of mine as well...


    No reissue of this anywhere? song is nuts!

    And it also appears on the first Nuggets box set.

    I also happen to have it on a 7" EP that Sundazed released a while back.

    I guess if you'll settle for a reissue, then "I'm Five Years Ahead Of My Time" shouldn't take that much effort to track down. But it sounds like the person in question was looking for an ***original***, which is a whole nother thang...

    Beat-Bop original PC. It will satiate my love for Basquiat and Rammellzee in one fell swoop.

    An almost realistic one is the Ashford & Simpson Bourgie,Bourgie 12" without the error. Although I've never seen it.

    no horselmat wants? if so... pm me
    That Horselmat LP is still my top want


    Funny story of my Dutch friend standing in a book/record store in Den Haag back in the early 90s.
    He has his elderly mother with him, and while he's busy talking to the store owner his mum reaches down and pulls a record from the front of a pile, only happens to be a mint original copy of Sabu - Afro Temple to which she says Is this something for you son?

    He pays the store owner 10 guilders, around $7 back then and walks out with a big smile on his face....

    its still possible to find that brit jazz stuff, i reckon getting in with the flatcap and pipe 60 plus ronnie scott's crowd is your best shot.

    or giving Don Rendall a call (8min40sec)

    Yes, the Whatmusic.com reissue is easy to find.

    Sundazed also put it out as a 45, I would love an OG too as I only have a reissue.
