Right, since the last post I have bought heaps of records... Some of these are from a record fair in Essendon on the weekend, others from a second hand shop and some from the internet...

Herbie Hancock - Secrets (Columbia, 1976)
The Meters - The Meters (Josie, 1969)
Jeff Beck - Blow by Blow (Epic, 1975)
Weather Report - Heavy Weather (Columbia, 1977)
KC and the Sunshine Band - Part 3 (1976)
Fatback Band - Raising Hell (Polydor, 1976)
BT Express - Non-Stop (Roadshow, 1975)
Average White Band - AWB (1974)
Dr Octogon - Instrumentalist (Mo' Wax, 1996)
Earth Wind and Fire - I Am (Columbia, 1979)
Led Zeppelin - [I] (Atlantic, 1969)
The Beatles - Abbey Road (Capitol, 1969)
Star Wars - Original Soundtrack (Polydor, 1977)

plus a few other spoken word albums and random cds...

Wicked! Although, it's gonna take me a while to get through it all and have a good listen to the shit I haven't heard before...!

OK - back again after a short absence... Looks like I am being retrenched from work (if the company doesn't go bankrupt first). This is good! However the fact that we have to wait until the 30th June is bad...

I got a shippment of records from Dustygroove the other day including the following:
DJ Shadow/Asia Born - Entropy/Send Them (Solesides SS001, 1993) - this is the first release on the solesides label and something I never thought I would get my hands on...but thanks to the amazing staff at Dustygroove I now own a copy (and at a nice price too - around $30 AUD incl shipping!). Check the music section on the Quannum site for further details.
The Meters - Look Ka Py Py - This is a 1998 reissue of the Meters first release comprising some wickedly funky instrumental jams.
Herbie Hancock - Thrust (Columbia, 1974) - a reissue of classic HH funky jazz - awesome!

Also - on my quest to get some older hip hop, I purchased Del's first album - I Wish My Brother George Was Here (Asylum, 1991). I think he has definietly improved, especially recently on HBMS and Deltron although with such classics as Mistadobalina, it's not a bad listen...
