Julie Driscoll, Brian Auger & The Trinity

The Montreal Record Convention has been always been very good to me.

During one of my last-call runs to make sure no big record I may need got left behind, I came across a young vendor’s stand. He had some good records but for the most part, they were slightly pricey for my taste. That was until I came across the Streetnoise album.

A DJ on the Main once played a groovy track that I just had to know who sang it. My eyes widened in surprise and pleasant amazement at the sight of Flesh Failures by Julie Driscoll, Brian Auger & the Trinity on the laptop.

This brings us to the convention with Streetnoise in my hands. I opened the gate fold to see the songs Indian Ropeman, Light My Fire and Flesh Failures on the same side of one of the 2-LP set.

I’m not sure what made him to do it but the young vendor immediately offered me a 50% discount. Among my theories are that it was near the end of the convention and he had to take advantage of any opportunity presented to him. He saw me with my bursting bags and felt I still had some shopping left in me.

Third is that he knew his prices were a bit too high and I’d leave that album behind otherwise.

Fourth is that it was the only record I pulled up from his crate to look at in-depth. Quite possibly it could have been the look on my face when I saw the three tracks on the same side along with any and all of the other guesses. 

I didn’t refuse the offer because I had at least three reasons not to.

Without question, Streetnoise was my find of an already wonderful Montreal record convention day.

I'm very happy to recently learn that the legendary Brian Auger is now signed to Freestyle Records, one of my favorite record labels.
