Yo yo! No refresh needed. Hey U1k!

BOOM! we are live!

Nice topic to revisit
Avatar 2:02pm Ursula1000:

a peek into my DNA
Avatar 2:03pm Mr Fab:

like I've said before: it's time for the Lounge Revival-revival.
Avatar 2:05pm Otis Fodder:

Loved the spike of reissues in the mid-late 90s with these issues from Crippled to Emperor Norton to all the semi-legit label comps. Opened my ears to digging outside North America for sure, records I rarely saw in shops in the states.
Avatar 2:06pm Mr Fab:

i started buying these kinds of records late '80s, probably like around '87, as a cash-strapped student. you could find Esquivel and Moog records and such in the 99cent (or less) bargain bins. Cheap thrills!
Avatar 2:07pm Martinibomb:

That's how I got my start to Fab. 10cent used bins hah
  2:07pm captain mike in port Whitby:

Digging the Eurosounds! Funky yet sanitized somehow
Avatar 2:08pm Otis Fodder:

Right there with you fab. For me it was all about Rasputins and Leopolds in Berkeley on (and off) Telegraph (87-89 heavy). So much cheap exotica-type and odd spoken word to sample from. The ISM books really put a boom into the upsurge of prices, but I loved those books as they said, I'm not alone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:08pm Rich in Washington:

The mid to late 80s were definitely the golden age of crate-digging, in terms of weird lounge, early electronic music and the like.
Avatar 2:08pm Ursula1000:

So many goodies! Blow Up and In Flight Ent from UK, Easy Tempo from Italy---a plethora!!!!
Avatar 2:09pm Otis Fodder:

I never remember 10 cent boxes, but for sure 25 cent or 5 for a buck. But I have heard from others about 5-10 cent boxes, they should've just marked em free.
Avatar 2:09pm Otis Fodder:

And Montreal's own CD series... Ultra Chicks Vol 1-6.
Avatar 2:10pm Martinibomb:

Oh I wrote to easy temp once and for whatever reason they sent me huge box of records like 50 releases.. I never figured out why. Not complaining
Avatar 2:11pm Ursula1000:

I have all of those Ultra Chicks---ESSENTIAL!
Avatar 2:11pm Otis Fodder:

GITG French volume (compiled by my 1st wife, Mimi la Twisteuse) too. ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:11pm Rich in Washington:

My first big record horde happened when I could buy records for 25 cents in any Goodwill, Salvation Army, etc. You would just be more willing to take a chance on records, aided somewhat by zines and magazines, etc.
Avatar 2:11pm Otis Fodder:

Those Easy Tempo Volumes are solid gold. Massive eye-opener for me.
Avatar 2:12pm Martinibomb:

Oh wow she compiled that one? Cool
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:12pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

Otis, I totally was shopping at Rasputin and Leopolds in Berkeley! Early 80's up to 87 (when I moved down to LA).
Avatar 2:12pm Otis Fodder:

25 cent boxes Rich... I miss those. Haven't seen a 25 cent box in years. It goes from FREE to $1 it seems these days. Or if there is a box, it's just filled with Mantovani.
Avatar 2:13pm Ursula1000:

The Mood Mosaic and Irma from Italy also made some killer comps
Avatar 2:13pm Otis Fodder:

Hopey! Yes!! Back when Rasputins was only 1 shop and then they split into both sides of the street.
  2:14pm captain mike in port Whitby:

Boogie on down the highway Eurosoul brothers and sisters!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:14pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

They also had really cheap band shirts in a big bin!
Avatar 2:14pm Otis Fodder:

Hopey, check this out... penned by Billy Jam of FMU. Flashback to Leopolds! I spent so much money there on records for clubs (outside of a bay area DJ pool I was in). www.amoeba.com...
Avatar 2:15pm Otis Fodder:

Also went to concerts at Leopolds heavy in the late 80s. Saw Too Short to MC Hammer play. Ha. Way back times.
Avatar 2:17pm Otis Fodder:

20 years later and comps. We are in heaven now with all the comps of this sound playing now. Have to be so careful in shops.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:17pm Rich in Washington:

Goodwill now sells certain records for $4.99. Even the crap, ubiquitous ones are all 2.99 now. It's stupid.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:21pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

Otis that is so cool, thanks for the link!
Avatar 2:23pm Martinibomb:

I have not heard Sid Ramin before .. great organ track
Avatar 2:23pm Otis Fodder:

My pleasure Hopey, found it just last year when searching for old record shops I used to haunt.
Avatar 2:24pm Ursula1000:

Sid's track off the soundtrack Stiletto from 69
Avatar 2:24pm Martinibomb:

Oh he wrote music to watch girls right.. and he just died. I don't know much about him tho reading
Avatar 2:25pm Otis Fodder:

Rarely hit the thrifts anymore Rich. I like to, but it's all about the timing and luck of the visit. Even with an inside scoop on when vinyl hits the bins weekly, there's always a few sellers waiting to pounce. I go a couple times a year and end up with some James Last but never Voodoo Party... but for some reason here in Montreal, it's one of those records in almost every bin and always under $5 for a minty copy.
Avatar 2:26pm Mr Fab:

That Quik track was a JAM
Avatar 2:26pm Martinibomb:

Sid was mostly a Broadway guy it seems. Nice gem you pulled from him there
Avatar 2:28pm Otis Fodder:

Ah, Manhattan Trio. On my 7" wantlist.
Avatar 2:28pm Ursula1000:

Yeah that Quik song is a dance floor rinser!
Avatar 2:31pm Martinibomb:

I found a really interesting jazz version of the party I played awhile back. They solo on it and everything
Avatar 2:32pm Mr Fab:

Was so happy when i found this Mancini LP on vinyl at the library back in the day. Went home and taped it. That was another resource - libraries!
Avatar 2:33pm Ursula1000:

its a great soundtrack---and movie!
Avatar 2:34pm Ursula1000:

granted that Sellers role prob wouldn't fly today!
Avatar 2:35pm Martinibomb:

Yes I have been thinking that too
Avatar 2:35pm Mr Fab:

Yes, and PETA would complain about the graffiti-covered elephant!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:36pm Rich in Washington:

More urban thrift stores, esp. chain ones, tend to get the seller/flipper types. Lots more cooler stuff hit the bins, but they're usually gone quickly. I still enjoy out-of-the-way thrift stores, where they still exist - when the missus and I travel, but I haven't been on a trip in a while.
Avatar 2:37pm Martinibomb:

So tragic loosing this soundtrack. It's a crime
Avatar 2:38pm Mr Fab:

Otis just played a version of this performed by Morricone Youth, feat. WFMU's own Devin E Levin.
Avatar 2:39pm Martinibomb:

I think I got this off that Quanto Morricone comp... Only good copy it I remember
Avatar 2:45pm Ursula1000:

Arriva La Bomba on Irma records has a clean copy--this is from that
Avatar 2:51pm Mr Fab:

fantastic Astrud Gilberto gem there. Ever heard her disco version of "Girl From Ipanema"?
Avatar 2:52pm Ursula1000:

yeah that sounds familiar---I'll have to dig that up!
Avatar 2:58pm Martinibomb:

I just noticed the recently archived sidebar on the wfmu page. DJ ARB at the top.. Ursula probably top after his show over. Kinda cool
Avatar 2:59pm Ursula1000:

this off another amazing comp in the 90s that turned me on to so much...The Sound Gallery
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:00pm Rich in Washington:

I love the Sound Gallery comps! They've got music used in my all time favorite TV show as a child Vision On.
Avatar 3:00pm Mr Fab:

So many classics today. I would point any newbies to this episode: Start here, kids!
Avatar 3:00pm Ursula1000:

have a groovy week everyone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:00pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

What a fantastic show.
Avatar 3:01pm Martinibomb:

Thanks for the music!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:01pm Rich in Washington:

Great show today! Thanks, Ursula1000!
Avatar 3:10pm Otis Fodder:
