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...
