    Anything by the Black and White Minstrels. Well, perhaps not any more...
    '...a violator of his word, a libertine over head and ears in debt and disgrace, a despiser of domestic ties, the companion of gamblers and demireps, a man who has just closed half a century without a single claim on the gratitude of his country or the respect of posterity...' - Leigh Hunt on the Prince Regent (later George IV).

    Wow! Really?

    Those are great. What in your opinion is the last good Flairk lp? (I go up tothe "Circus" lp which I consider their best.)

    What does "flairk" mean?


    Don't tell me de Groot's "Piknick" lp is easy to find.
    That is possibly EUROPE'S best pop lp.

    One that looks rare & desireable but is really common here in South Ontario is.....oh I can't recall just now.


    Mebbe someone can help me:

    it was a lp given out free on the streets by some Hare Krishna folk-deal.


    I say it looks desireable cos the fantasy -fairies & flowers - coverart is cool. When flipping used records this one always gives me a rush cos the cover looks like that of a $400 UK popsike group's - which I also forget just now, dammit!


    You even come upon these sealed.

    This Hendrixy spacerock lp used to be rather common.

    R-1449491-1434032208-5123.jpeg.jpg

    I believe Brooks hails from Florida.

    It must of been released in massive amounts. I know of at least 8 coloured vinyl versions including 3 marbled and one transparent.

    Yes, really. I don't (or hardly) listen to both them but the Flairck album you always see in thrift shops is Variaties op een Dame.
    Boudewijn de Groot's Picknick I've never seen there but there are so many (compilation) albums you'll find him very often.

    The name of the band is an original composition, derived from the French word 'flair' and the Dutch word 'vlerk', which means 'a nimble fingered hand' or 'wing', but also more commonly 'rowdy young man'.

    I know it is not now relevant but your question reminded me of the days (in the mid 70's) as a teenager who looked in 'used bins'
    I always seemed to encounter Hamburger Concerto by Focus.......

    this was narrowly followed by Caravanserai by Santana!

    I no longer buy records because they are inconvenient and take up too much space, but many years ago, I used to dig through bins in thrift stores and record shops. Certain items seemed to show up all the time. Here are a few that I remember.

    Budget classical box sets were quite common, and nobody seemed to want them. Typically, they would have titles such as "The World's Greatest [insert genre here]". Records released by the Longines Symphonette Society were especially common. I remember that, in the booklets that came with the records, they boasted about the quality of the vinyl they used for their records. In reality, I remember them being mediocre quality at best (although some of the performances were good), but the box sets were a good deal, usually US$1 or so. Furthermore, these records never seemed to have been played by their original owners; they were always in pristine condition. For a starving student, this was a good way to acquire some of the basic classical repertoire. Some good came out of those cheap box sets; I remember being introduced to Franck's Symphony in D Minor by way of a Longines box set, and it is now one of my favorite symphonies.

    Also, easy listening records of the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s were ubiquitous. Any thrift store or record store dollar box was guaranteed to have a few Ray Conniff records, and Muzak-style ensembles supposedly consisting of a ridiculous number of strings were everywhere. Sing Along with Mitch records (which can be fun in a campy sort of way) could also be found with regularity. A few of the weirder or more interesting ones eventually became cult classics during the "space age pop" craze of about two decades ago; at this time, the Les Baxter and Martin Denny records, formerly quite common in the used bins, disappeared, and pristine copies rose in price to US$30 or more.

    Finally, I remember the used bins being littered with Christmas records, almost always of the crummy variety. Every second- or third-rate artist seems to feel compelled to record a sappy Christmas record at some point, and most are dreadful but still not quite terrible enough to be funny, so they find their way to the used bins and stay there for a long, long time. I can't remember any specifics now, but I bet if I went to the thrift store down the street, I would encounter some of the same ones that cluttered the used bins twenty or thirty years ago.

    Your right about the Baxters.
    I'm still needing a nice shape copy of 'Sacred Idol'. And the Lovecraft soundtrack is one of his rarest.
