Christmas With Ronnie Aldrich (1964)






















I meant to post this last year but didn't get round to it.  I've not listened to it but I remember it being a bit scratchy.  I'm sure you won't mind though, is it Christmas after all!

Happy Christmas to you and yours from I-FE.

Johnny Harris - Bloomfield (Original Soundtrack) (1971)























Great score from Johnny Harris.  A mixture of orchestral pieces and vocal tracks.  This is the superb The Loner by the Bloomfields.

Thanks again to Jim for cleaning up the covers.

Henri René and His Orchestra - Riot In Rhythm (1958)























A truly great late 50s record.  A special thanks to Jim for cleaning up the scans.  Have a listen to Whispering and see what you think.

Hugo Montenegro - The Best Of (1969)























Always had a soft spot for Hugo's cover versions of Morricone tunes and his excellent Lady In Cement soundtrack.  This highlights some of his best work.

Theme from The Fox

Ken Thorne - Inspector Clouseau - Soundtrack (1968)























The original uploaded earlier had a problem on the last three tracks - fluff on the needle!  I've uploaded a new copy so grab it again if you wish to.  Apologies

This is a great soundtrack form Ken Thorne who unfortunately always seems to get overlooked.  He did some great work on ITC series such as The Persuaders and The Zoo Gang and big films such as Superman II.  Here's a taster:  Lindt Vans

Geoff Love & His Orchestra - Star Wars & Other Space Themes (1978)


















I know what you're thinking and yes, these have been posted a thousand times on a thousand different sites, but I recently managed to find this album on CD - I'd been looking for it for a few years - so I thought I'd upload a clean, crackle-free version.  The CD also includes the follow-up LP Close Encounters of the Third Kind and Other Disco Galactic Themes, so you get two albums for the price of one!

Theme from Star Trek

The Sound Gallery - 24 Musical Masterpieces (1995)






















This fantastic compilation caused a bit of a buzz for a while in 1995 as it brought attention to the fantastic world of library, lounge and easy listening music that we all love so much.  The tracks are culled mainly from the archives of KPM and EMI's Studio 2 series.

Wonderful stuff.  Volume two coming soon.

John Cameron's Half Forgotten Daydreams

Paddy Kingsland - Fourth Dimension - BBC Radiophonic Workshop (1973)























Brilliant album from KPM and BBC Radiophonic stalwart Paddy Kingsland.  A bit crackly in places but I'm sure that won't spoil your enjoyment.  Vespucci

Malcolm Lockyer Orchestra - Themes For TV (1975)























Link collapsed due to DMCA complaint

A really tremendous album this.  Malcolm Lockyer's wonderful TV Themes album, which were all the rage at the time.  Side One is uptempo and funky and side two...er, isn't.

This is his version of Alan Tew's Hanged Man, AKA The Detectives. And Midweek.

Great Film Themes (1966)






















Link collapsed due to DMCA complaint.

An album that have been hanging around unposted for quite a while.  Some nice interpretations on here, including Mike Leander's great version of The Silencers.

Robert James Orchestra - Take A Break (Studio 2 Stereo) (1972)






















Mmm...couldn't find anything Royal to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee weekend here in the UK, so I thought I'd go for the next best thing...a record that I'm sure is in Her Majesty's collection. 

The Right One.
