John Gregory - A Man For All Seasons (1974)

 I can listen to almost anything but there's even stuff on here I don't like.  Maybe, that's why he's a man for all seasons.  Still, don't let that put you off, there are three well-known tracks on here that will blow yer socks off!  Jetstream being one such classic.

John Schroeder - Gangster Movie Vibrations (1974)

Most probably the best (and funkiest!) of the Vibrations series from John Schroeder.  Check out his brilliant version of Quincy Jones' Money Runner.

Eric Winstone Plays 007 (1973)

This has been on my wants list for a few years so I pleased to find it so cheap on my recent trip down south.  OK, so it's a little crackly here and there, but none of that matters when you hear The Man With The Golden Gun.  No, not the version you think it is, but a co-write from Eric and the legendary Syd Dale.

Frankie Carle - The Latin Style Of (1966)

These are the kind of records you rarely ever see over here in England so I was surprised to find this (and a Harry Horlick LP) a few months ago at a record fair for 50p each.  I'm sure the streets of every American city are paved with albums like this, but not over here unfortunately. 

A sneak preview here.

Cyril Stapleton - The Panoramic Sound Of Lennon and McCartney (1969)

OK, I'm ready to start posting some of my £1 a time booty from my recent holiday.  This was an album I'd been after for a while and it's a corker!  I know it's been posted by other folk around these parts, so I hope they don't mind me proudly posting my own copy.

Chaquito - Swinging Latin Sound (1962)

I scanned the covers to this early Chaquito classic before Christmas but never got round to posting it.  It's certainly a summer album though so I'm glad I waited a while.
