The Tony King Sound (1975)

Great mid-70s album from Tony King, an arranger who had a hand in quite a few chart hits here in the UK.

This album has it all, some funky guitar breaks and even some wild mid-70s synth!  Enjoy!

Various Artists - The Mozart Lounge (2002)

Well, here I am again with a random post after 18 months or so.  This time one of my favourite albums, the 2002 Mozart Lounge compilation from Apollo.  

Those of us in the UK will remember many of these from the testcard back in the 70s.  

My favourite tracks are by Franco Chiari, I would love one of his albums but would have to sell a kidney to buy one.

Orchestra Walter Rizzati - Park Avenue (Original Soundtrack) (1978

Walter Rizzati composed the soundtrack to many dodgy, low-budget films, but they were always good soundtracks.  A mixture of easy listening and disco.  This is one of them from the 1978 picture, Park Avenue.

Check out the wonderful Central Park.

The Sound Spectrum (1996)

It may well be Friday the 13th, but don't worry too much about it, just stick this little beauty on and all will be good with the world.

MP3 and FLAC versions available.

Pegasus by Mike Vickers.

Stelvio Cipriani - Gli Orrori Del Castello Di Norimberga (Baron Blood) (1972)

What can I say?  I have been away for a while but I had a genuine excuse this time: leukaemia.  Anyway, all that is hopefully behind me now so thought I would start to post the odd album again, though I won't be as prolific as I was a few years ago.

This is a great soundtrack from Stelvio Cipriani and if you've not heard it before then you're in for a treat, this is the title track.  I've been a bit lazy and have ripped the tracks as side one, side two, etc.  It would have been a nightmare trying to separate the tracks.  MP3 though I can provide a FLAC version if you wish.

Good to be back.

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.
