Those first couple/few Kristofferson records are good as hell. Great songwriter, good singer.

Keep coming across this one, tempted to buy it just for the cover alone!
Laxman sent me that earlier in the year. It's great and well worth getting mate. I had most of the tracks on various comps etc. But that's a very cool release.
So they are the actually live recording from the Palais show? What is sound quality like?
No mate all the previous released studio tracks. Sound is great.

No it isn't the actual gig. That was description is poor.

Nice compilation of cuts from Delroy Wilson, Leroy Smart, Dillinger and Ken Boothe. "Midnight to Six Man...For the First Time From Jamaica....Dillinger and Leroy Smart...An’ Delroy Wilson Your Cool Operator” - White Man In Hammersmith Palais - The Clash. The legendary gig that Joe Strummer, singer from the Punk Rock band The Clash attended and inspired his writing their classic White Man In Hammersmith Palais took place on the 05th June 1977. At the Hammersmith Palais venue on Shepherd’s Bush Road W6, London during the height of Punk Mania. The full line up for the show were all Jamaican artists Dillinger, Leroy Smart, Delroy Wilson (all the first time from Jamaica) and Ken Boothe. “Ken Boothe for UK pop reggae” who had already scored some hits with Everything I Own and Crying Over You in 1974. Joe Strummer was expecting Roots, Rock, Reggae but the Sound System this evening ‘Admiral Ken Sound’ was playing ‘Four Tops all night’ as in soul and northern soul that were staple crowd pleasers at the time to warm up the audience, but in Joe’s eyes the music should have reflected more Jamaican roots based music. The song also deals with bigger issues of black and white unity, but some people including the Punk Rockers. “They’re all too busy fighting, for a good place under the lighting”. Joe Strummer himself was looking for fun. “I’m the Whiteman in the Palais....Just Looking for Fun” .The artwork supplied by Punk Artist Mal One has used the two posters that were made for this gig, the reggae promoters ‘Star Promotions’ poster, that contained a picture of Ken Boothe and the venue’s own poster that used text to announce it’s line up for that evenings performance. Alongside these lost relics he has also combined the groups own poster for the White Man In Hammersmith Palais single that incorporated the use of rifle target sights, perhaps enhancing the air of violence contained in the songs message. Mal One has collaged these together joining the two stories as indeed the song lyrics reflected. People often forget that the songs release was in fact as year after the actual gig, Kingston Sounds have tied this release to the 40th anniversary of the song’s release. Joe Strummer was one of the few voices from the Punk Era that used his lyrics as a weapon to tell the events that were happening around him and their relevance to those times. The song itself a Clash Classic and also a Punk Anthem, released on the 16th June 1978. Kingston Sounds have compiled this album with songs by these artists, most of which you would have heard that night.

Their used vinyl was very curated and I prefer bins and bins of records that you need to weed through.
I like the idea of bins and bins because there's always the chance of a hidden gem they don't know they've got but in reality I get overwhelmed very quickly especially when they're tightly packed.

The most unexpected cornucopia of gold was a place in Carrollton, GA called Vinyl Frontier. Could have spent a fortune there and also found tons of things I already own that I never thought I'd find in Carrollton, GA.
The best is when you see a few boxes in the corner and he says “I got those yesterday I haven’t gone through them yet”.
I got a 7-8 punk/ska LPs (including the Specials, Ramones, and a few others) at the goodwill for 20 cents each from a bin they had just set out in the mid-90s.
I used to get really lucky at Half Price Books. Their records used to be priced crazy low. I once walked out with an original pressing of Never Mind the Bollocks for about 5 bucks. They have since gotten a bit smarter and have started to price records much higher.

My cousin passed away unexpectedly 3 years ago today. He was the guy who first got me into most of the music that shaped my life (including the Clash). His daughter (and my goddaughter) is going through a lot of his stuff and invited me over today to go through his LP collection and pull whatever I wanted. Here are some of the highlights:
A359495E-63CF-4D43-B70E-A63450D4EF77.jpeg
I also now have 4 copies of Bollocks on LP, though this is the first Virgin pressing I've ever had. 4 Clash albums in the haul: US version of self titled, London Calling, Combat Rock, and CtC. Every PiL release from First Issue through Album (including both live albums).

It feels really special to have these in my collection.

The first Clash record is, indeed, a gem. :approve:

It was a nice surprise. She just got furloughed this week so one of her projects is to start going through his stuff. It was actually just chance that I went over on the anniversary of his death (she first asked me yesterday, but I had the kids and it would have been tough).

One of the most important things I picked up was his collection of Smiths vinyl. I remember when he dubbed those for me back in 1990 when I was 13.

He did have a good collection. Growing up in the 70's, he went went from traditional middle American arena rock to punk seemingly overnight (hearing the Pistols did it for him). You can see the change in his collection: Led Zep and Pink Floyd and then Pistols, Buzzcocks, Jam.

He also took exceptional care of his vinyl...so most are in near mint condition.
