    Not bad at all guys. I'm literally walking out the door to follow a few leads I got over the weekend. Wish me luck!

    JP: had your flights not been canceled, would you have found this?

    Nope - it had probably been there a few days but I hadnt gotten out to the thrifts until today.

    nice find!

  • goddamn Jonny thats awesome. just that fact that fell into the right hands makes me happy. And even whipped that will do well for you. who on earth just let that go to a thrift? and then it wasnt caught by any "inside men" - especially in the bands home state? youd think more heads would be up.... amazing.

    and congrats on that tom scott housecall score too - thats like everybodys white whale, and for whats on it, its always way too high on the bay. ive been trying to manifest one popping up in da field for years but no dice.

    heres what i got over the last week or so....

  • tom scott [...] for whats on it, its always way too high on the bay.

    i have been curious about what is driving (or at the very least sustaining) the interest and price on this.

    personally, i love the record and all the tom scott california dreamers projects on impulse/flying dutchman (rural still life, cosmic brotherhood, head start, spontaneous combustion, oh! calcutta, etc...) but my impression is that the majority of people would find it to be really corny. as far as i know nobody grips on any of his other records that have a very similar sound.

    so, is it because some producers have sampled it? is it because there are a bunch of folks who collect impulse and for some reason this was not pressed in as great numbers as some of the other titles on the label?

    I would say it's mainly because of "Today" and Pete Rock's use of it. I'm sure the Impulse collectors are after this as well. Personally, "Today" was the reason I was after it, then when found my copy I wound up liking the whole record. I'd have to get a pretty serious offer for it to let it go. Plus, I was lucky enough to find a white label promo.

  • spent my holidays travelling around southern bavaria and came up with a bunch of really nice finds. especially the thrift stores around wuerzburg are definetely worth to check out. the "bedazzled" and "because i am" were some cheap ebay finds for sure. happy new year!

    From the last few months (sorry for the double post for Waxi heads...)...


    All of these except the bottom left two are from my trip to Japan.
    The bottom left two are courtesy of Rockadelic.


    Everything except Byron Black is from Japan.
    The Chico and Blossom LPs are Japanese press and super sweet sounding.
    I've loved the Chico album ever since hearing Burt Reynolds drop "The Sage" in Boogie Nights.


    Gene Clark has only the merest hint of ring wear.
    :lonerfolk:


    Really enjoying the County comps!


    I like having several versions of Sylvester & Beasley's tracks to choose from.

    Not photographed but gripped yesterday and today:
    - John Fahey "The Transfiguration of Blind Joe Death" (second press with booklet).
    - The Poppy Family "Which Way You Goin' Billy?"

    Nice find on that Curtis Fuller, Rock!

    I've sold that for $300 or so several times, plus it's pretty great.

    Haze was waiting for me at the Berkeley Rasputin's new arrivals section and was $14.99. Also got the Mehrpouya reish there and was discounted to $9.99. Stock cover is private gospel soul from SF on the GSR custom label. Miles Davis is super clean and Bridge Over Troubled Water has a surprisingly good version of "El Condor Pasa", a trak that normally makes me :sick: (this LP is a spare if anyone needs it). Anyone know who sampled it? I know i've heard this somewhere but can't place it.

    Hugo Blanco was the find of the week. Killer harp cumbias as sampled by DJ Lengua.

    Hey Sebo! These are amazing finds! I`ve never been lucky enough to find such a big amount of great records at thrift stores around these parts. Have you really been travelling around Bavaria just to look for records?
    I`ve never heard of somebody who did this before. And I never thought it would be worth it.
    I`m a bit confused by your desription. Have you been in the north of Bavaria (W??rzburg) or in the south or both?

    Happy new year y`all!
