Latest shopping trip...


Just got back from a few days gallivanting around Witchfinder General territory. I Managed to hit one record fair plus a few record shops in Norwich and a car boot sale in Banham (not far off the B 1113)! I came back with around 50 singles -No real amazing finds, but cool stuff including some choice Bugglegum: Nevada Sound with a cool version of Gimme (Gimme) Good Lovin' on Pye, Bubbles -Hazy Hazy Crazy Crazy (in Europe they edited out the Crazy Crazy from the title), several Demos on UK including Sloply Bellywell, Robin, Handful of Cheek, Ricky Wilde...

A whole slew of Jam promos (Sylvester -Gimme Time, Bitter Suite -Six O' Clock News, Walter Mitty -Caroline etc...).


Biggest disapointment: A 1973 single on RCA under the name Hammerhead...weak poppy reggae.


Best deal -The Passengers -Something About You for 25 pence!


As for the Sakkarin single above? It is in fact a demo copy of Sugar Sugar!


Back soon...

SAKKARIN was Jonathan King, the british pop producer and "genius"

Hi, I wonder if the Sylvester on the Jam single is the same as the US falsetto singer from Sylvester + The hotband?

To be honest...I'm not sure, it's now hidden somewhere amongst my singles...

hi William, i'm Eduardo, I sent you once an unknown track (maybe dutch) for you try to discover... Please, do you have the Walter Mitty -Caroline track? I really want to find this one. Thanks in advance.
Btw, I got that unknown tune: Hunters - Strange Things Appear. If you want I can send you :)
