The Prisoner - Original Television Soundtrack (1967)

Another wonderful ITC soundtrack.  This time from the legendary series, The Prisoner.  The title was written by Ron Grainer and again like many ITC series the main body of music was written by the underrated Albert Elms.

I will not be pushed, filed, stamped, indexed, briefed, debriefed or numbered!  My life is my own.

Albert Elms - Man In A Suitcase (Soundtrack, 1967)

Well, back again.   Can't believe it was Christmas when I last posted anything. 

Anyway, this is the excellent vinyl release of Man in a Suitcase, my favourite TV show from the 60s.  The well-known main theme was written by Ron Grainer, but the rest of the music from the series was written by the wonderful Albert Elms.

I'll try and crack on with the broken link requests over the next few days.

Duh-duh-duh-duh-duh-duh, duh-duh-duh

Well, as Andy Williams once sang "It's the most wonderful time of the year..." and he was right...the release of a new Star Wars film, what could be more wonderful than that?

To celebrate I'm reposting some of those cool (in quotes) Star Wars albums we all love so much.

Have a great Christmas everyone and a great New Year.  Hopefully see you again in 2016.

Hugo Montenegro - Lady In Cement (Soundtrack) (1968)

Best known for his Morricone covers but Hugo could write a mean tune himself as this wonderful soundtrack shows. This is the 2010 vinyl re-release with a couple of extra tracks  Lady In Cement.

BBC Radiophonic Workshop - Fourth Dimension (1973)

I have posted this in the past but my previous copy was a little crackly.  This is a new 180G version I bought a couple of months back, so I thought I'd repost.  And very nice it sounds too.

Zacharias - The Sensational Sound Of (Studio 2 Stereo) (1970)

Hope you're all having a good summer.  I've been wanting to post this for a while as it's one of my favourite S2S albums, mainly because of the great version of Carry That Weight.

It's good to be back.

Franck Pourcel - Latino Americano (1965) - REQUEST

Ok, whilst I get round to recording a new stack of stuff I'll start by posting some requests for previous posts with collapsed links.  Here's the first, a lovely FP S2S album from the year of my birth, '65.

I'll try and do a few this week, so if you have any requests, please let me know.

Persuasive Percussion 1,2,3 (Remaster) (2013)

I appreciate these have been posted a thousand times on a thousand different blogs but I thought I'd stick them up as this is the recent(ish) remaster vinyl release for all three volumes.

Nice sound.

Byron Parker - Nothing But Percussion (1961)

Now that the long hard winter is over perhaps I can get back into the swing of things again.  This is my one and only album by Byron Parker.  Listen to a snippet here.

Over the last few months I've had stacks of requests for reposts so I will try and start re-upping some albums over the next few days/weeks.  Apologies to all those I've not got back to.

Kronos (Original Soundtrack) - (1957)

Great, eery soundtrack from  Paul Sawtell and Bert Shefter. As it's fifties sci-fi you can probably guess the styleAsteroid, Part One

Please do not play just before bedtime.  I will not be held responsible for any nightmares...

Thanks to David.

Les Baxter Conducts 101 Strings (1970)

This is a great album from Les Baxter and 101 Strings, there are some cracking up-tempo numbers such as this one,  A Taste Of Soul.

One note of apology though there's a small skip on track three.  Hope it doesn't spoil the enjoyment too much.

Patrick Gleeson - Patrick Gleeson's Star Wars (1977)

I love these synth Star Wars albums.  This one was recorded on the world's most advanced synthesiser apparently, so there you go.

Perrey And Kingsley - The In Sound From Way Out (1973)

Yeah, I know, I know.  It's been ages again despite me saying I'd have to get my act together.  I'm not going to make any excuses...

OK, for my comeback post I've decided on this nice little Perrey and  Kingsley album.  Originally released in 1966, this is the UK re-release from '73.

Peter Appleyard - Percussive Jazz (1960)

"In a recording with so many varied percussive sounds, there is a violent interaction between the stylus and the abruptly changing route taken by the walls of the record grooves..."  Well, that's what it says on the back of the sleeve anyway.  I'll leave you to judge whether this record is a little too dangerous to listen to.

You have been warned!

EDIT:  Files now fixed and in true stereo.

Ralph Ferraro - Let's Dance To The Movies (1965)

I've only had this album for a week and it's already become a firm favourite, particularly the first track,  L'Onuri Di Ascaluni.   Big thanks for David.

I've had a numberof requests to fix broken links.  I'll get onto that as soon as I can.
