Record Finds 08/06/2010

Yet another great Friday at the thrift shop for vinyl! Here are my finds:

Erroll Starr - The Key (12" single, 1986)

Note: Cool Canadian music from the late 80's. A fun fact: the song actually starts at the end of the lead-in area!

Jenson Interceptor - Jenson Interceptor (1980)

Note: Edmonton, Alberta-based group from 1980. Note that this record was actually mastered by the fabulous Bob Ludwig, whom I actually have an article about! Also take note that there were about a dozen sealed copies of this album. So even though I read they were a B-circuit group, I got it just for thehell of it! And I discovered that it's actually pretty good!

Apollo 100 - Joy (1972)

Note: Features the well-known rendition of Bach's "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring".

Seals and Crofts - Down Home (1970)

Note: The folk-rock duo's second album ever. Canadian pressing on Bell, and distributed by Quality.

Sheila E. - The Glamorous Life (1984)

Note: Sheila E. was an American female singer best known for her work with Prince. This is her debut album.

The Michael Zager Band - Life's a Party (1978)

The Cinema Soundstage Orchestra - Cleopatra Soundtrack Scores (196?)

Glenn Miller - A Memorial: 1944-1969 (197?)

Note: Ahhh, the best of the master of swing. Glenn Miller, a legend all in one.

Andre Gagnon - Neiges (1975)

Note: French-Canadian instrumental musician and composer.

Walt Disney's Most Beloved Songs from His Great Motion Pictures (1964)

Walt Disney Presents All the Songs from "Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree" (1965)

Walt Disney's Merriest Songs (1968)

Sir Malcom Sargent - The Pirates of Penzance (197?)

Note: I also have the 1968 D'Oyly Carte recording of this amazing William S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan play.

Hong King! Exotic Chinese Pop Music Recorded in Kowloon (1966)

Cinema Soundstage Orchestra - Dr. Zhivago (196?)

Note: I saw two copies of this album; one mono and one stereo. I got the mono copy, because it's the original (doesn't say "also available in stereo")!

Annie (Original Cast Recording) (1977)

Note: The fabulous musical based on Harold Gray's comic strip "Little Orphan Annie". This showstopper will be returning to Broadway in 2012!

New York, New York (Original Motion Picture Score) (1977)

Note: The soundtrack to Martin Scorcese's musical drama film starring Liza Minelli. Now I actually have a little story to tell you. It was 1977, and George Lucas's first ever Star Wars film came out (but the fourth in the whole six-episode trilogy). My grandfather came to the theater especially to see Star Wars, but since a god-awfully big line of people were higly anticipating it, he went to see "New York, New York" instead. And he hated every single minute of NY, NY. Why? BECAUSE HE DIDN'T GET TO SEE STAR WARS! Netherless, I now have the original soundtrack, though I daren't share it with him because he still hates the movie!

Well, that's all my finds for this Friday. Talk to you later!
