Cool Records From Your Collection - POST EM UP!Started 12 years ago by YoYoPo / toggle topic info
Yo, this should probably go in the other section of the forum but seeing as I control this joint and PUTS is all about cool records, I put it up in here.
Last Friday I went into a few shops and picked up Impeach the Precedent LP which is really great, some of the tracks are beautiful man and it's for charity so do your part. I also picked up the new 12 from Thes One and Raashan Ahmad (Crown City Rockers) - Doin' It. I'm listening to it now and it's a cool summer vibe you should definitely pick up. I also got Giant Panda's '88 Remix 12" which features Thes One and is dope. If you liked their Tres Records stuff (the With It 12" or Bloquera EP) then pick it up to see what they were up to before that.
Anyway, onto the main deal - I raided my pop's flat while he's been away and checked out some of his records. I found some stuff which I think is pretty cool, some rare, some not.
The first thing I picked up is also the illest. A Japanese set of two picture disc 8" records on fat, fat vinyl from HMV. From 1956 they're nursery rhymes and the recording itself is pretty crackly but I just love all the artwork..
Check the cover (see how it opens the 'wrong' way cos it's japanese):
also, the front cover in more detail, the inside and the great picture vinyls: first, second, third, forth ...
I also found a set of two paper-thin see-through red and blue 7" vinyls 'Folk Songs of Miyazaki Prefecture' - these are traditional Japanese folk songs sung when "pounding millet", "collecting thatch from the mountainside", "harvest thanksgiving dances" and "announcing a wedding on horseback". It's made by 'King Record' not sure what year. The cover and vinyls are pretty funky but the songs are like throat wailing singing with no music.
I also picked up a French Jazz 7" called 'Safci'. The music is nice with some unusual instrumentals and a b-side track that I thought was skipping cos it's so syncopated. One track has a cat in the background too Because it's a European 7" it's got a big hole in the middle so you have to put a spacer in and this one has a cool little spiral one.
Then there's just some records with cool covers.
Sly and Family Stone's 'Dance to the Music' (man this cover makes me laugh):
Also Pink Floyd's 'The Wall' and The Jimi Hendrix Experience 'Axis: Bold as Love'
Thanks to Tig for lending me his camera and thanks to my Dad
If you want to know more about any of them then hit me up on here
I hope the rest of you post up your favourite cool records - not sure if Thes One is allowed though Looking forward to seeing your stuff
Some pretty funky stuff there!
A lot of old 45's have the centre hole punched out, thats what those little silver disc adapters you get with your Technics are for!
yeah I know, like The Trip 7", but I like that spacer
generally though European ones are more likely to have a fat hole than UK ones, although things are different lately
Some fave finds as of late... sorry for the poor quality of the pictures.
This has to be one of the sexiest women ever to have a dope break to her name.
Been looking for this for a long time... found it for $2 in Hamtramck, MI the other day.
Same here... but I shelled a little dough for it. You know what this is.
This dude was 14 when he made this record - 14!
nice to see you on here gambit, welcome! Hope more people can post up ill records - not just rare ones though, i wanna see plain crazy ones too! I found a bag of about 15 paper thin 7" the other day, they were freebies but so damn many!
Where's my Canadian bro Carson - I wanna see a pic of the white Noonen
I got your back Tim... I got my friends digital camera and took the photos of Noonen and some of my other records except I don't know how to get it on the forum. I have this picture program that won't let me copy and paste the images on to here. Think you can help me out? Don't worry if you can't, I will find a way eventually to post my stuff up Tim.
alright Denny, try imageshack that's easy but if it don't work then e-mail me them and I can host them for you (I'll probably put them up on the site anyway)
let me know man
I'm not a professor at record collecting so i was wondering for you guys what would be your 'holy grail' record. The one you want to find, the most rare, special, whatever. That's probably not the same for everyone but is there like one real dope rare record that everyone is diggin for too?
I know on that stones throw dvd they were talking about that LA Carnival 7" with 50 copies made and 2 left in the world or something which is pretty nuts.
Yo but if you already got a real damn rare record what is it and how much did it cost you
I got a few nice picture disks from the late 70's/early 80's. Mostly stuff like Madness, The Specials, The Stranglers, Blondie. You don't find much rare funk and jazz digging in the second hand shops round here but a lot of the artwork on that punk/new wave/2 tone stuff facinates me. I'll get some pictures up later in the week if I get time.
I believe the rarest I ever had in my possession was this northern soul 45 on C Note Records by a singer named Baby Norma Jeane (6 Years Old). The songs were "M-O-N-K-E-Y" and "Shake It." Cute little doo wop tunes sung by a 6 year old girl.
C Note was a Detroit-based R&B outfit and I believe my 45 was the first single they pressed on the label. I traded it to get more records. I got $100 in credit for it. I somewhat regret letting it go... but I had no use for it really. It was cool to have and I still research C Note Records for more tuneage. I hope I can find another copy one day...
How do I send photos with this sh!t?[/img]
not that rare, but its such a great record and was only $.50!
this is by far the weirdest/most rare record i have though
...so you can get an idea of how akward of a record this is:
haha,the japanese is a claaasic(hehe)
Great sh!t 'po
