Pete Moore Orchestra - Exciting Sounds Of Tomorrow (1970)

Pete pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa Moore is probably best-known for the 13 seconds of Asteroid, AKA the Pearl and Dean theme.  However, there was a lot more to him than that, as this fantastic album clearly shows.  The album is not only packed with great covers; Green Onions, Route 66, etc but also includes two well-known self-penned monsters, Catwalk and Take 8.

I'm not saying it's my favourite album of all-time, but it's certainly in my top one...

This is an absolute cracker!

I've loved this ever since it was shared by lemoncat over at Grooves of Delight ages ago. It has been a favourite of mine ever since.

Unfortunately it also seems to be everyone elses favourite too, as every time I see one for sale, it fetches some silly prices :(

I dream of the day someone has a clearout and donates it to a charity shop (preferably one near me :)

Your collection appears to be never-ending!
Just don't tell me you snagged it for 50p!

Great share :)

Jay, yes, this is a cracker. I love Pete Moore. I have a few albums by him, I'll be posting "Lively and Latin" later, or maybe tomorrow. That's a good 'un too.

Actually I picked this up at a record fair in the early 90s and to be honest too many years have gone by for me to remember how much it cost me. However, for the purposes of winding you up I'll say it cost me 49p!

I didn't realise it had been posted elsewhere, but I suppose it's obvious it would have been. There's a lot of duplication in the stuff we tend to like.

I've been collecting for more years than I care to remember so there's a lot of stuff to come yet!

Wind-up merchant :)

What I wouldn't give for a ruddy good mooch around your vinyl archives!

I look forward to seeing what other treasures you have picked up over the years ;)

I went to a record fair on Saturday and bought some good stuff for 50p each, quite a lot of Ted Heath and some nice Decca compilations.

I (or rather my wife) did pay a whopping £8 for Franck Pourcel's "Meet The Beatles", it was a Father's Day present from my four-year-old son. It's lovely, I was listening to it tonight while sipping lemonade in the garden. That'll be on here soon.

Greetings. I wanted to let you know that I've added your blog to the "Lounge/Exotica/Library Music" category of my music blogroll/aggregator @ http://music-bloggers.blogspot.com I also added your blog's feed to the Aggregator RSS feed, which displays the most recent posts from all of the blogs on the list. It can be found here: http://feeds.feedburner.com/dmblogroll

I'm trying to put together the most comprehensive list of music blogs which feature out of print or otherwise unavailable music, as well as those which share podcasts, or sample mp3 files. I've categorized them so that you can easily find exactly what you are looking for.

If you would like to help me out, you can do so by linking back to my blog. Although it isn't required in order to be listed, I would greatly appreciate it. If you would be willing to mention the blogroll in a post that would be fantastic also. Thanks for all the hard work and time that goes into maintaining this blog, and especially for the fantastic music you share. Take care.
