it's a little off topic, but
while we're on the subject of rare records, I have a double vinyl Led
Zeppelin bootleg recording of Bonzo's last gig ever, in Berlin.
It's in mint condition, though the fidelity of the recording itself is not
so good - sounds like a room mic, more or less.
But it's certainly interesting, captures the vibe of being at the show.
I'm interested in selling it or trading it. I have a couple of other Led
Zep bootlegs that I would also like to trade.
Some of my favorite obscure wax:
- Sounds of the swamp in June - a record made in Rhode Island of the sound
of a pond-swamp. One side has a guy talking in a thick rhode island accent
about what he sees in the swamp. The other side is the instrumental :)
- Shalamar - the freshest indo-spy-funk bollywood soundtrack
- Jacky McKaiten - "The Black Magic" - an old Israeli Yemenite record
featuring this funky guitarist backed by an all-indian band. Features a
hebrew cover of the hindi film hit Qurbaani
-The Ray Draper Quartet - a record of this little-known tuba jazz player.
Features John Coltrane, before he blew up.
- The Wind Harp - eerie recordings of a 3-story high harp that is played
by the wind on top of a hill.
- Call of the Valley - seminal 1968 indian classical record, featruing
Hariprasad Chaurasia and Shivkumar Sharma
