What's Your Best Charity Shop Find?

Postby Aaron » Fri Dec 27, 2013 1:52 pm

Couldn't help but share my good fortune at a local (Kent) chaz shop last week: http://thriftyvinyl.wordpress.com/2013/ ... music-12s/ and http://thriftyvinyl.wordpress.com/2013/ ... eggae-lps/ . There was even more where that came from! A great day.

Fantastic haul, I've had a couple of nice reggae hits at thrift shops, few and far between but usually so random and unexpected that it makes whatever happens to be found kind of special:

LP

U Roy - Version Galore (Treasure Isle)
V/A - Rock Steady Intensified! (WIRL)
Pinchers - Bandolero (Jammy's)
Jimmy Riley - Put the People First (Shanachie)
Judy Mowatt - Black Woman (Generation)
Augustus Pablo - East Of the River Nile (Shanachie)
Native - Native

7"

Sugar Minott - Ten To One (Wackies promo)
Yellowman - Zungzung...(Arrival)

Big fan of the thrifty vinyl blog.

My best are probably:
Papa Levi / Maxi Priest - Mi God Mi King 12" on Level Vibes

Admiral Tibet - Permission 12" on Riz

Seasonal bonus bits:

Mannings - Christmas Is A Rich man's Dream 12" on Metro

V/A Christmas Family LP on Live & Love

About 50p each. Different shops, different times.

Still posting more from my recent chaz batch here: http://thriftyvinyl.wordpress.com/2014/ ... ck-8-1979/

Maybe someone here can explain why, in the "Never Give Up" A side, there's a microtonal difference in key between song to dub as the two segue; it's something I've noticed on other reggae extended mixes before.

Last reggae of my pre-Xmas bunch: http://thriftyvinyl.wordpress.com/2014/ ... 9534-1979/

There were a number of non-reggae Island records in this same batch including Traffic, Betty Davis and Quiet Son, among others.
