Hauls Found Today

I’m in Melbourne, Australia.

There is a record fair on Saturday I’m going to, so I’ll ask the question then.

I’ve only got three that are so warped to be unplayable, so a $1000 plus machine is out of the question. I might try heavy books and time to start with.

These are lovely - seems our local Oxfam has had a trad jazz 10” delivery



Love the one of Bobby Hackett halfway through a cigarette while still on the tarmac. Those were the days/they don’t make ‘em like they used to/world’s gone soft/kids today don’t know they’re born etc etc etc

But nicest find was Harry Styles, sealed, Watermelon Sugar in London today.
£4.
I have a fondness for the track, but also, figured major label 7”s are fairly rare these days.
Didn’t check on Discogs until I got home. Seems I was right!
Will keep it though.

A good weekend with some interesting stuff around. Nothing more than a fiver (Blue Nile - Hats), the rest one or two quid. Restored my faith a bit after a few dry-ish weeks.

Talk Talk came in the wrong package, ‘I Believe In You’ was the sleeve, that is a very tough find, was super excited for a bit. Stomu-Yamashtas live album is great condition on the vinyl, a really great listen and was free. Everthing else a pound, a few duds and fair amount of ‘all the crap that wouldn’t sell on discogs’ on display today at the boot.

My best ever charity shop haul I think? All a 5er each, practically mint and some were in shrink. The bloke on the till who also happened to be the “music guy” in the shop said they were part of a huge collection of soul/disco/funk/RnB that had come in last week, most of which had gone by the time I got there this morning. He decided to put a blanket 5er on all of them as there were too many to price up, apparently.

If these were the bits that were left, I’m incredibly intrigued by what else was in the collection…

Not a massive haul, but a few cheap bits at a local market. Combined price less than a new 12”

Frankie Knuckles - Whistle Song
It’s Immaterial - Driving away from home
Bill Withers - Still Bill LP
Sergio Mendes - Fool on the Hill LP

It’s immaterial is an absolute fave. Still a unique piece of pop

Goldmine Records on St. George’s Road in Fitzroy North offer de-warping services. I’ve never done it, but Ben the owner is good guy and he’ll be a fair judge of whether the record is worth trying to de-warp.

Great, thanks for that.
