Film: Lost Vinyl Gems Of The 60's Episode 2 Now Online magazine cover

Hi folks, Pete Smith here, I'm back with another selection of interesting/rare/unsual/awful 45's from the 60's. As with the previous episode, this is all done live on a hand held camera and is not intended to be a candidate for an Oscar nomination, it's just a look at some vinyl records and an opportunity to hear something that you may never have got around to otherwise.

This episode actually ran to 70 minutes so I've split it into two equal parts, the next one will be posted up this coming monday as I'm only allowed 500MB uploads per week.

I've left the mistakes and cursing in!

Oh and thanks for the really encouraging response to the previous episode, all the comments were much appreciated.

Looking forward to watching this when I get home (no access tho streaming media/podcasts etc at work unfortunately). Last one was great, and I actually learned a couple of things!

Glad to see The Buckinghams, Slade (didn't Dave Hill live near your nan?), and The Mysterians in there, I'm interested to see what you have to say about them!

Keep up the good work, you never know who's watching.....

Very entertaining - shame about that sticking on the marvelous KNIGHT BROTHERS record! Yeah I would agree, that ELEENA record is without a doubt the best ever british attempt at a bona fide Girly sound, you'd bet money on it being an american record all day...got to be honest as well, the HELEN SHAPIRO one is a nice record, never been keen on her biggie, but had the other one been discovered as an ultra rare Philly record it would be 'hailed'....do you know what PETE, watching this is making me regret selling my 60s pop collection...I had about 5-600 immaculate 45s, a few on here, some rare, some not so rare, just a teally nice collection but succumbed to my ex-Mrs's complaints about records and sold'em over a year to keep her off my back as regards my Soul records...wish I had'em back now...BUCKINGHAMS is a lovely record, very sexy JERRY JACKSON demo... :hatsoff2: Take it 'chocolate rolls' will be on Episode two Part Two?

Rich to be honest, it's taken me so long to get that shrunk into a manageable size and then split it, I didn't take any notice of where it actually ended! Did you see episode one by the way?

I just intend this to be the visual equivalent of picking up a fanzine to read about records. Everyone loves looking at records, I could just look at pages and pages of them.

Unfortunately not until monday, unless I pay $59 to upgrade for the year (or $9.99 for the monthly payments - I could do that I suppose)

* means I'll have to do more of them to justify it LOL

Rich I have just realised I made a mistake with the Elena record; it's actually recorded by Roulette Records in the States - it even says so on the label but the writing is so small that I didn't actually see it previously! No wonder it sounds so authentic.

Such a clean production, nothing loose about it at all..'polite' even!

f*ck me, what a shame!!!! you know what PETE, i just got back from Rosehill and walked past the old St Helier Hospital where OLLIE REED worked before he became a movie star and I kept thinking about the Brill Building and that bloody record and the sound and thinking where the f*ck did they manage to pull that off in England and how come the bloody birds were not then on every single Columbia/Hmv/Parlophone/Pye record ever made instead of all those other english back up Girls and I just could not square it all - was driving me mad - then I get back in here and you say that lol :thumbup:

Thanks Pete I've wasted a whole morning watching your excellent Vids. My manager is still hovering..............

Forgot about Lesley Dawson if my memory serves me right Iain Stewart discovered it ( if lt was really that lost :D )

On of his 'junking' trips. And it arrived at Wigan via Al Sazz.....

It brings back great memories of sitting at home on a Saturday evening playing loads of interesting looking British stuff (most of it awful) from the junk shops of East London & funding trips up t'norf on the profits.

Keep up the good work mate much appreciated. :hatsoff2:

I'm really grateful for all of your positive comments, I kind of knew people would like to see this sort of thing, maybe it's because it's all totally off the cuff and done live? I never have any idea what I'm going to say until I see the next record, then the cogs start turning and I try to remember something about the artist. The funny thing is, and I've been trying to work out why this is, I could do this all day, it's a piece of cake for me, but put me in the same position behind the decks at a venue and I just can't do it. And I'm not shy - I just can never get comfortable with a mic.
