Title: the what-you-got thread (latest purchase/acquisition)
Post by: milliondollars on March 15, 2018, 10:04:16 AM
on at least one of the old LMT forums, there was a thread for latest purchases/acquisition. it would be a nice idea to see what you guys were able to score recently (CDs, vinyl, tapes, catalogues, whatever,...).

if this thread already exists on V.7, please let me know and delete this one

I'm receiving today a couple of Discoboles, including 850.809 "Cocktail" in which I'm very curious! And a couple of Black Rocks: ECR 119 "Graffiti" and ECR 122 "Music in Turbo" - been very curious about these for long as well. + a couple of others, like BW 13071 "Lungo I Sentieri Della Belle Epoque".

very nice roope! that Cocktail and Graffiti look interesting. that Cocktail made it to one of my lists...the Cocktail list obviously...  :D

just got Camille Sauvage's Neutral Vibraphone on Musax. been after that one for ages. great record! one would not think how tough those Musax records are to come by...

still looking for one or two Musax to fill gaps if anyone has something  ;)

From my purchases above Cocktail is great, some tracks reminds me a bit of VIP's Actual Dance, some tracks are atmospheric synth rock, some more experimental.
Both Black Rocks are great. My son got crazy about the Music in Turbo so we already listened that three times.
That Broadway LP is amazing, very charming happy record.
Now playing Meditazione on Equipe and it's wonderful as well. So I'm very happy with this batch! Will definitely rip these at some point!

Milliondollars - do you happen to have 100.028??? I couldn't be much more curious of an album than this.
Probably can't help with filling the caps as I only have 100.009.
Would be amazing to see them all at once!

very nice actually! to be honest, i was expecting much less from it. of course the music is not ground-breaking but the orchestrations are really solid and in some of them you can even hear that cold breeze that i was hoping to hear...

got some obscure late 80s stuff. all seem to be Leonardi offshoots. really nice stuff on them if you are into that kind of music...

I splashed out on Dennis Farnon's SBH 3052.  It was more than I've paid for anything before but I wanted to treat myself!
I now just need SBH 3073 - Electronic for a full Boosey set of LP's :-)

Here's that section with the missing article!  Will soon fill that gap  :)
All those with green stickers were from the same record shop for £2.50 each.  I was searching for Drama stuff at the time and it's likely that I let 3052 sitting there!!!!  :-[

were you able to finish any other labels of that caliber? maybe we should make a thread for completists. some true record porn  ;)

Post by: Retronic on April 06, 2018, 02:33:27 PM
I have all the KPM's other than 1067 and 1130 but i have these on the re-release Tummy Tuch vinyl so at least there's something on the shelf for now.  An Afro Rock went for £134 on Ebay the other week- out of my price range. 

Like most others I end up paying more if the desire to complete a run kicks in!  I never dreamt of getting all the KPMs but I got lucky with a haul a few years ago that filled most of the mid-price ones I thought I'd go for a set.

I have all the Amphonics on vinyl I think, missing the odd Bruton, most of the latter De Wolfes, a full set of Atmosphere.

Post by: milliondollars on April 06, 2018, 06:53:24 PM
amazing! need that one still. actually i need most of those Boosey's. if you ever should recommend...let's say 5 from the catalogue, which ones would it be?

also great to hear about a almost complete KPM collection. i've been cherry picking over the years and have about 40 that i consider the best ones. still not finished my want list though...

by the way, have the two you are missing. i shoud send them to you for the picture only  ;)

Lucky you. At least We have a set between us!
I’ll have a think about the best Booseys - can’t remember the numbers off hand.

Post by: Retronic on May 05, 2018, 12:25:51 PM
I’ve been buying again. Got a handful of Sonoton the other day and today I got a stash of 35 mixed LPs.  Will post pics in a bit. Nothing amazing and mainly gap fillers and replacements for scratchy records. Chuffed though. Looking forward to dropping the needle on them later today! :-D
Title: Re: the what-you-got thread (latest purchase/acquisition)

(https://s7.postimg.cc/6vamkp817/IMG_2449.jpg)
I bought this lot the other day.    I often buy things I already have by mistake and did re-buy a Sonoton (only £4) and The 'Big City Heat' ST LP (£2-£3) so no major harm done.
I got a MINT KPM 1168 'Drama' which I was chuffed about.  I got my original copy mid 90's and it's a but scratched up- this looks unplayed with mint cover.  It was £40 but I got some knocked off.
This guy had I think almost a full set of Brutons (both Drama Montage were there at £40 and £50, and again MINT).  Every BRM, BRK, BRL, etc.  I didn't see BRS 'Vibes' which I would have bought.
I should have gotten BRG 21 as I do need this but daren't get it in case I did already have it-- there's one on Discogs for £12 so I could splash out and get it just to fill the gap.
(https://s7.postimg.cc/8zuzluu97/IMG_2450.jpg)
BRB 2, BRO8 & BRR 2 are all fillers I needed - I also needed BRR 18 but it was something like £20 so not worth it to me and I left it.
The BRM I already had but mine is battered so I couldn't resist.
I bought the Spectrum blind because I know I have a pile but don't know which ones-- not checked yet but don't think I had these late teens ones. They were cheap anyway.
The more expensive ones, like the Conroy are all like new and some great fillers for me; and some I think I have never even heard.
(https://s7.postimg.cc/5g91w9p17/IMG_2451.jpg)
The three Selected Sounds were fillers- nothing amazing (1018 and 1019 were two I think).
There were some good KPMs there (can't remember which but I didn't look at the prices cos I have them already).

This is on the back of buying a few Sonotons last week so I'm slowly filling those gaps too.

Post by: stackjackson on May 07, 2018, 12:42:26 PM
What a haul! Again, only in the UK... desolate for us here in the US.

If you're up for it, I'd love to hear two of those Conroys... BMLP 122 and BMLP 176. Never had rips of those before.
Title: Re: the what-you-got thread (latest purchase/acquisition)
Post by: Mr on May 07, 2018, 02:50:28 PM
What beauties, congrats on the haul! Funny to see one of those EAPs, it's been long since I've last thought about them. The Spectrum and Terrific Music LPs look nice too. What's that teal/white/black one at the bottom?

- I'm with Stack, you Brits are lucky!

Post by: Retronic on May 07, 2018, 03:43:43 PM
I can't remember- looks like film strips with sprockets... just been to look but couldn't see it-- they've mostly gone onto the shelves with the others now.  If I remember I'll come back....  ;)
Above the claude Larson is an 80's Major and above that, the white one is Telemusic Synthesis 2.

amazing haul Retronic!

you have a crazy completist attitude. since my space limited i do cherry picking with most of the labels nowadays. i would say that my Bruton collection is the most extensive one.

would love to seemsome spines of yours (and of course of some other forum members!)

here is a recent picture of my Brutons...

I didn't intend to be a completist but I kept picking them up and once it gets to only needing a  few I figure I might as well get them.  I don't go out of my way but if I see them I'll pick them up.

i am reorganizing my collection, where most stuff is spread weirdly over the shelves. these are the labels that i have put together so far.

would love to see some other peoples spines in here...

***edit***
what i have realized, is that i start the lowest numbers from right hand side for some reason which is stupid. will change that definitely...

Half way up is De Wolfe, Rouge & Hudson- got decent runs of them (loads of DW missing of course.

Picked up a handful of fillers (and I do mean fillers- nothing very good).  I got some of the missing Brutons for £2-£3 - some BRR's on Bruton and some other mid-80's Brutons. I picked up a couple of replacement KPMs for pennies to replace old battered copies.

finally was able to complete Colours In Rhythm series on Apollo. i know it's only 8 records but it took me quite some time to get all of them for reasonable prices...

will post a picture of the full set some time later. love the sleeve design and the two colour variation. some great music on them, too!

now i need to nail Melody & Rhythm but i don't have a single vol. from that series yet  ::) ;D

I recently got a bunch of 80's Chappell for almost nothing. I didn't have an idea how good some of the albums were. I'm really digging all of them, especially Electronic (CHAP 001), Wildlife / Nature (CHAP AV 019) and Environmental Images (CHAP AV 024). Have these been shared yet? If not I'm happy to do that at some point. I'm also open for recommendations in the red and blue series (Rhodos, Sea/Water and most of the "Electronic" albums I'm already aware of).

Post by: Retronic on June 24, 2018, 06:02:01 PM
I just had a mini splurge on Discogs- about 6 LPC Chappell (older mid 60’s ones) and about 15 Parry gap fillers. My buying is generally sporadic. I’m ripping a lot of stuff at the moment and as I’m searching for tracks it highlights gaps and then before I know it... fortune spent on Discogs...

I bought a box of Sylvester Music and De Wolfe 10" after just a random flick through it. On getting home, I was delighted to find a few Basil Kirchin, Abstractions of the Industrial North being my favourite. I only started buying library records a few months ago so I am easily pleased  ;D

Title: Re: the what-you-got thread (latest purchase/acquisition)
Post by: Mr Rain on July 16, 2018, 03:10:22 PM
Yes, quite fortunate. It looks like the two Basil Kirchins in particular are quite rare and/or desirable. I give myself a little bit of credit for uncovering these as, having seen he had a reasonable number of De Wolfe LPs, I suggested he may have some 10". I'd noticed them in Discogs while looking up the LPs. He initially said he didn't think so but obviously went rummaging in his store room and this is the second batch he's found. He thinks that's it now except for an outside chance he may have some 78s.
I guess this has been mutually beneficial. I've been able to start my library collection and got some very desirable records at a very good price. He's made a few hundred SGD that he may never have made had I not walked into his shop.
Having said that, I admit I've been lucky but, hey, I was due a bit of good luck  :D

There's a guy who sells records and CDs for a standard 2 SGD each. I think he does house clearances and things like that. They're mostly 60s and 70s local records - Singapore had a lot of record labels for a such small place. I've never seen any library until today so it was a nice surprise to see a Bruton, BRG23 World of Sport. I'm an admirer of Brian Bennett's work so I was delighted to find my first record with his compositions, and my first Bruton.

Just found 15 Selected Sound for 10€ in paris flea market. So happy ! No rarity, a lot of the "Cuts & Media Music" records, but always nice.

Yes I like this label... This is one of my favorite to dig, in France it's easy to find them! My local record shop will have 150+ library records of KPM, Selected Sound, Tele Music, Patchwork very soon...

     Great find! I love those records. I paid more than €15 just in shipping to get them. Were there any more than these nine (https://librarymusicthemes.net/index.php?topic=1580.msg8782#msg8782)?

Just got the 400 78's (and about 30 Southern 45's) from the Dr Jazz eBay sale.

Will start to transfer them over the weekend!

Recently, during one of my many antique shopping jaunts, I found an odd LP for this US label called "Customusic". It's a sample record for this rather Seeburg-esque label, and I say that as the label offered arrangements of popular songs to play in businesses and industrial plants. Now, if I had the proper technology for this such of thing, I'd make a rip of it so you all could hear.

Nice! So, did you get it?

Haven't heard of the label before, but it seems very Muzak/Seeburg-esque, yeah. Emil Cadkin did some arrangements for Customusic, it seems.
It seem they're still active as a company. There's some info (http://customusic.com/history.html) on their website.

The date of the test pressing, so we can identify that these two albums are from 1973.

Crabbed a few Penta Flowers! Archaic Impressions and Audiovisual are the stand-outs so far. Others have some good stuff in them too, or they may be growers.

great to see those Penta Flowers  ::)
need to investigate on the Archaic Impressions which looks really interesting to me. so many interesting ones that i need to hear still...

also got one recently: To-Days Jazz by Enzo Scoppa Ensemble

this one is really good in terms of jazz! reminds of some old Kudu, CTI or Blue Note records actually.

If you don't have a 78 speed on your turntable, it's possible to rip them at 45rpm and speed them up digitally ;)

Ohhhh! Great idea. I just looked at Audacity and it has a plug in especially tailored to that purpose. Thanks for the tip.

I'm in Singapore but thanks for the offer  :) I'll give it a go but my preamp isn't powering up so it looks like I will have to get a new one.

I was going to include BMLP 001 in this order, but the seller said he didn't have it in stock.

She has 60 - 69 too i think!

I got outbid on some she had last week.

Per chance did the seller you purchased the Conroys from, have any others from other labels?
