Shit is mad slow today at work... I got another 5 days until the friday night rap gig and a bit of a road trip / digging mission.I dida trade with strutter recently and got this:and I have to say, although I expected it to be good anyway, I was very impressed witht he sound on this. Great Kool and the gang covers and a few other cuts are dope as well.Post a record you got recently that was better than expected, or soemthing... I'm bored as hell and need reel record talk, yo.

    Montgomery Country Community College LATITUDES 1973-74

    Cool private press college record feautring various artists. A mixture of psych, prog and jazz I guess, but a solid listen throughout. Saw it on Legend's site, but found it today for cheap.

    no, dont show me this cover. i found just the sleeve for this in mint condition at the WORST thrift store in my hometown one time and was very angry.

  • picked up ellen jackson's ghetto boogie after hearing a friend play it and ended up liking the flip hard times even more, love the sound of this record

    partly still with shrink and in beautiful condition looks like its never been played, the heaviest grant green ive heard so far, i do unfortunately have a tendency to pass on jazzguitar joints, however did grab this though.
    with idris muhammed on some very funky drums and ronnie foster/ neal creque on organ, starting out with a cover version of let the music take your mind, kool & the gang, on blue note 1970.... and yes im probably the last person on this board to discover this album, but daaamn i likes!!!

    Scored this underground local L.A. Psych Comp from 1968 here in Vermont a few days ago for $2, minty as hell.

    I've been really hyped on it, every track is a winner. If anybody sees this, cop it. You would think it would have more of a garage tinge, but it's heavy psych, lots of fuzz, and all that good stuff.

    Found this at a flea today. It has the 'All of us are born with the miraculous ability to determine the direction from which sounds approach' sample that Primo cuts on Afu-Ra's Whirlwind thru cities, which I didn't know when I picked it up.

    Completed a very pleasant trade recently.
    Really beautiful session.
    And a nice listen w/ the fan humming in the background.

    this last one is an ebay pic, but a real world find. of course, my copy has a chip in the outside of the vinyl, but still plays through all the way if the needle is dropped accurately enough...detroit!

    I have a copy of this - one of the few "bargains" I got at the FMU show last
    year ... definitely like a number of tracks ... we were trying to figure out if
    some of them are from Sidewalk soundtrack LP's, of which there are a few
    rare ones, or otherwise, if all the bands are "real" and where they are from.
    Nice version of "Season of the Witch" on there, too.
