Woot! Today, in a singaporean secondhand shop I got the following for 5 singapore dollars each (about 1.50 UKP):

Incredible Bongo Band - "Bongo rock"
Sun Palace - "Winning/Rude Movements"
Sandy Nelson - "Compelling percussion"
Harry Thumann - "Underwater"
Army of Lovers - "Massive Luxury Overdose"
Stephen Duffy - "Un kiss that kiss"
Earl Scruggs live at Kansas State
Eddie Harris - "That is why you're overweight"
Sebastiao Tapajo - "Beinvenido Tapajos"

Plus some recordings of malaysian jungle animals, a whole heap of 60s malay rock, some hawaiian and Indian stuff, some french poetry and also MC Miker "G" and Deejay Sven - "Holiday Rap"

Not super-rare by any means, but lovely to find regardless. And all in decent condition!

What have you found recently?

In LA I found a copy of the Zodiac album Disco Alliance for a dollar ("Pacific" from that album is on the recent Unclassics mix).

I'm still trying to figure out how rare this actually is though.

death comet crew (featuring rammellzee) - at the marble bar 12" (white label on beggars banquet) for 2 the other day.

is this rare? not seen it around before anyway. on first couple of listens the track that popped up on the Anti NY comp is the best thing on here, pretty good. looks like their stuff is in the process of being reissued at the moment. should i sell it quick?

The current DCC rerelease "This Is Riphop" on Troubleman includes all the 1984 "At The Marble Bar" tracks .
The "Anti NY" was a great one , thanks to Gomma
Glad you enjoyed , hope you hang on to it , we only have a couple copies of that 12" ourselves

one of my best finds was 'Lets Go Swimming' by Arthur Russell e.p on Rough Trade with the full Walter Gibbons mix, near mint for four pounds in some otherwise rubbish record shop in Colchester (crap provincial town, - U.S. readers) It just appeared in front of my eyes like a gift from above,

My greatest find was an Aphex Twin "Analogue Bubblebath" on Mighty Force. Found it at a yard sale in amongst mildewed copies of Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson.

It's still one of my favourites, but $279US (http://eil.com/shop/moreinfo.asp?catalogid=278215)? You've lost your mind!

Back in '94 I swapped Aphex "red label" and "blue label" for 4 e's and a wrap of crystal.

Absolutely moronic thing to do, I dread to think how much those are worth now...

last week at vinylmania i picked up a copy of the North compilation on Deconstruction. Came out in 88. Lots of stuff by T-Coy.

of course what seems "rare" in the States is common in England, and vice versa . . . .

among my recent jungle finds in NYC stores are Sharon Forrester "Love Inside" (FFRR) and the Austin EP on Suburban Base . . . . probably wouldn't be considered rare in England!

have also picked up a few Konk records recently, but given the Konk compilation on Soul Jazz these probably don't count as major finds

and "Love Tempo" on Factory

and "Funky Diatribe" by New York United on the Jungle Sounds label -- probably the best New York dance label of its era (1992)

Actually anything with breakbeats and made between '91 and '94 is going for mad cash on eBay right now, doesn't seem to matter which country. I reckon that stuff is rare anywhere....

Picked up Curtis Mayfield's Back to the Future and Sweet Exorcist LP's in mint for a $0.25 apiece at a Garage sale.

Also Found:
First ESG 12'' on 99 Records produced by Martin Hannett for $1 wrapped at a record store. Saw it for $100.00 at a local store.
Piero Piccioni's score to the 10th Victim on LP for a $1 at a thrift store -- worth $60.00+

If you look on E-bay you see people paying extravagant sums of money for records. I've seen people drop $150 to $200 for a single Morricone soundtrack.

These create a situation -- do you view the record as an investment or commodity or something to enjoy as you would any other record you have. Do you look at it differently now that you know there is a significant price tag attached?

God, the US is like the promised land for disco 12"s. They're bloody hard to find in Britain - most have ended up in the hands of collector types years ago, just because the total pool of them in the country was always pretty small. Gotta go back there soon...

Does anybody here travel specifically to buy records?

DigitalDjigit
10-12-2004, 05:17 AM
If I am not mistaken the Austin EP is actually really rare in Britain. Wasn't it deleted or something and then Sm:)e released it in US?

My biggest triumph was finding 69 - 4 Jazz Funk Classics for $3.50 in a local record store. It was repressed shortly afterwards.

Recently found
First Choice - Hold Your Horses $1
Fun Fun - Happy Station $1
Patrick Cowley - Do Ya Wanna Funk $2.5

I found a bunch of Brazilian records at a Goodwill about two hours away but had to leave before I decided whether it was worth buying them. I can't remember what I saw there but there was some Veloso, some Gil, Jobim and a few other guys whose names seemed familiar but I couldn't find them on that Brazilian music site later. I looked at all the Gil discographies I could find and none had the cover of the album as I remembered it (It was white with some pink and a bad drawing of his head). Dont' know if it is worth it to go back to grab them. It looked like it was mostly late 70's - mid 80's stuff. What do you think?

Also, I would really rely on gemm. The prices are ridiculous.

OK. Folks in the vicinity of Williamsburg: corner of N 9th and Driggs, downstairs. Eso es todo.
Here's what I bought yesterday, all vinyl, all under $3.00, all in great condition. I nearly passed out with excitement. Loads of original Prelude/Salsoul/etc. but you need to dig. :

Propaganda "Wishful Thinking" and "Duel/Jewel" 12"
Lime album w/ "You're My Magician" and other solidness
Phreek album
Musique "Keep On Jumpin'" album
House Hallucinates 2xLP
Taana Gardner "Work that Body" 12"
Scritti "Wood Beez/Absolute" 12" (Godhead.)
Den Harrow "Catch The Fox" 12"
212 "NYC People" 12"
Inner City "Good Life" 12" w/ May + Atkins rmxs

Can't wait to sit and play these first thing in the a.m. tomorrow.

Just this afternoon I got David Holland and Derek Bailey's "Improvisation for Cello and Guitar" (1971 on ECM) for $10 new zealand dollars and Gong's "Shamal" for $NZ8. The (few) second hand record stores here in Christchurch (where I am temporarily, visiting from Melbourne) seem to be overrun with c86 style pop, presumably left behind from the remnants of Flying Nun and that scene when it was based here...

Found these two in Camden yesterday:

<img alt="dudley.jpg" src="http://www.woebot.com/images/dissensus/dudley.jpg" width="500" height="500" border="0" />

This is a library record by Anne Dudley of The Art of Noise. I've seen copies of this go for $75, I paid $4 for this one. It's simultaneously queasily 80s sounding (in yer face parping synths) and sort of wonderful. Like a focussed YMO. I'll be using this on the soundtrack of my next animation.

<img alt="kirchin.jpg" src="http://www.woebot.com/images/dissensus/kirchin.jpg" width="500" height="500" border="0" />

This really surprised me. Bruton doesn't have the cache of KPM or Chappell in the library recordings stakes, it's a very 1980s label and i was really surprised to see it was a Basil Kirchin record. I knew he'd done some library, but not in this era as far as i was aware. Didnt he just step down as Professor of Music at the Royal College of Art? Anyway this is great, plays as a long suite, kind of like Eno's "Another Green World" meets Ellington's "Black Brown and Beige" if you'll scuse the lazy comparison.

20-12-2004, 10:28 AM
A random assortment of reggae 7" for 50p a pop including some nice Studio One represses and Nitty Gritty's "Run Down The World" on Jammys. :cool:

Dunno how you can survive Camden at the weekend, Matt! It's mental up there... the Anne Dudley seems cool though. I used to love Art of Noise (and Propaganda! Good to see people picking that up).

I quite liked the album she did with Jaz Coleman of worldy type stuff. No doubt this marks me out as a hopeless chancer in the non-euro/US music states. ;)

shit, i saw that in M&VE last time in london and passed on it, assuming it was most likely crap

my favorite NYC find recently -- George Harrison, Electronic Sound, on Zapple the experimental imprint of Apple, for 9 bucks. seems to be worth more a lot more. strange as the record store in question generally slightly overpriced and typically knows exactly what thing's are worth.

Just this afternoon I got David Holland and Derek Bailey's "Improvisation for Cello and Guitar" (1971 on ECM) ..

i saw another record by the london improv/incus/company crew on ECM -- forget what they were calling themselves, or the name of the album, but bailey and i think parker were on it ... circa 72/73/74... i did wonder if it was collectable and/or a snip at the 10 bucks they were asking ,but not being much of a fan of that sort of thing i passed

oh man... one o these days you might remember this and smack y'self upside the head... I've been wanting to get my hands on those Company records for sometime.

a few free jazz pieces of gold (to me, they're not terribly rare) I've found in the past couple of years are:

Steve Lacy and Evan Parker duet - $6.99

Evan Parker and Sainkho Namtchylak - Mars Song - 5.99

Circle (A. Braxton's 70s band. not the Finnish psych) Live on ECM. - for like $3.00 the store I guess had no idea what it was (on Amazon I think used copies are $35)

Well, I'm in the habit of listing the dumb records I've bought pointlessly in charity shops on my website (ahem: www.umbusiness.co.uk) and I've had a few interested enquiries about my copy of Alco's Threads Of Life LP. Some guy on Gemm wants $1400 or something for his. Really must sort out that Ebay thing...

DJ PIMP
06-11-2005, 09:43 PM
Gemm seems a bit wonky... e.g. the clear Aphex Quoth 12" on Warp has a price of $50-80, but go on ebay and its listed as $5-10.

It's not a bad album not great or indeed a "way in" to improv (start with a Derek Bailey solo record or <preferably>see him live)
I've seen the record go for 75 before now.

I'm not an expert, more a simple listener, to british improv, but I think that album on ECM is really great.

In the vast ECM catalogue there are really some great gems, but ECM won't reissue them!

for example:


Wolfgang Dauner - Output
Bennie Maupin - The Jewel In The Lotus
Julian Priester Pepo Mtoto - Love, Love
and the aforementioned The Music Inprovisation Company - The Music Inprovisation Company, reissued in cd only in japan

at least they reissued the ECM 1016 Terje Rypdal in cd, incredible album, like Miles Davis Jack Johnson meet the first album of Ash Ra Tempel....

Yes I was talking about CD, i can't afford vinyl for various reason, travelling and changing house about every 6 month is one of. Vinyl is better, but cd is more handful. Also you don't have great second hand shop were i live, actually you don't even had record's shop who sell vinyl (unless i travel to Milano or Bologna).

Ciao! Francesco.

A few years ago I found the Indian Ocean "Schoolbell/Treehouse" 12" on Sleeping Bag and the Arthur Russell "World of Echo" LP for $5 each. Later I also found the Nocera "Summertime" 12 on Sleeping Bag at the same place.

Both the Sleeping Bag records were sealed but I had to hear them.. :)

They're probably the best of my finds.

The Quango & Sparky sleeve looks wicked.

Seems strange that only a few years ago the shops were full of this stuff at knockdown prices. I picked up a lot of Shut up and dance for a pound a go.
Second hand dance record prices seem really driven by micro trends.

Someone must have been a DJ in this building in a previous life. I was standing in for the janitor a while ago, so I rescued these 12"s that someone was throwing away. The records need a good cleaning before playing and I haven't had the time to do that. A third of these I can't remember (Carlton? The Legend?). Any tips on what I should clean first?
(I just use lukewarm water with a drop of washing up liquid on records like these - it makes the records clean and also removes static).

Someone's selling a copy of the Red Universal Indicator for 175.00 on Discogs. I picked up Universal Indicator Red along with Moroder's Munich Machine LP and The Drexciya mix of UR's Electronic Warfare for 2 at a record fair in a box marked 'disco'. That works out at 66 pence each! Yesterday I found Bass, Breaks and Bleeps on Rumour records for 3.

He offered me a deal on the whole lot, about 200 records, but there was no way I could have carried them all so I just ended up grabbing a few bits. I was trying to think who I could call at 8 in the morning to help me carry a huge crate of records. I can console myself with the thought that many of them had obviously been hammered by a DJ.

Yes, I don't think he's based in Brighton any more though. Eastbourne maybe, or er, possibly Canterbury!

It's probably a conceptual thing and he turns down all friend requests.

Are those records lathe cuts? I think he gets them done in really small runs.

Did I tell you about getting a mint copy of RAMM 002 for 1?

Loads of good stuff crops up at car boots if you have the dedication to dig. Tons of 90s dance music right now as ex DJs and music heads get a bit older and a bit sadder and start having families, that kind of thing.

Never heard that that Tubby T died. the brokenbeat mix of Ready She Ready was cold

Recently by sheer luck when rooting around Chemical Records online, I came across a limited stock of the Ice Rink EP with Kano, Riko, Tinchy Stryder and Breeze on it. I didn't think any shops stocked this anymore.

This got repressed last year (or year before?) but went pretty damn quick.

An excellent find nonetheless!

i did win a collection of grime/garage tunes on eBay last year, about twenty 12"s for 11, a few dire tunes in there but some really sweet stuff too including geenius cru 'course bruv', a white label copy of 'wot u call it' (which is sadly a bit warped), know we, and an old big apple records 12" called "bad boy" which i know nothing about but which definitely lives up to the name.

got "Ultimate Rap" by the Nice and Nasty 3 a few weeks back for 3 dollars from a guy selling records on the sidewalk...

http://www.popsike.com/php/detaildata.php?itemnr=4718938219

funny thing is, i bought the repress like 5 years ago for 3 bucks as well and fell in love with the song and figured i'd never find an original and i felt like it tainted my old school hip hop collection ( i have a decent amount of 79,80,81 disco hip hip 12"s), but now i am thinking i HAVE to sell it... 700 bucks is a lotta money...

it looks terrible now doesnt it. cds especially but theres something very sad and unattractive about vinyl now too.
whenever jim from this thread comes to visit me in greenwich we pop into MVE cos he used to work there but fuck
is it depressing. all this stuff we just dont need anymore. grotty, handled things. smelly, sordid things.

music shouldnt be a physical object. it was a weird quirk of history the last few decades. im glad i never got
into collecting records. i remember when i got my first ipod and filled it with every rap song ever made and i
took it round my mates house who had a decent hiphop vinyl collection and i showed him how i had everything
he owned and plus loads of stuff he'll never lay eyes on in his life. so much rare and unreleased stuff.

years later he admitted hed wanted it snatch the ipod out my hands and fling it out the window. real toddler
tantrum reaction. its democratised listening to music now and its a great improvement. it makes sense having
music stored in a non physical form. its satisfying.
