Enoch Light - Presents Patterns In Sound, Volume 9 (1969)

I recorded this way back in February and for some reason it's been gathering virtual dust on my hard drive.  Hopefully, it's OK and was just forgotten about.  Which reminds me, I will try and fix the Pete Winslow album soon.

Pete Winslow - Last Tango In Paris (1973)

 this one makes me suspicious.  I found this tucked away in my "Posting Possibility" folder on my PC.  I usually post stuff more or less as I record them but I did this way back in May, so that suggests to me that there's something wrong with it.  Apologies if that's the case.  I haven't listened to it. You never know though, I may have just forgotten about it.

Anyway, let me know if there's anything wrong with it.

Carmen Cavallaro - With That Latin Beat (1958)

Well, I finally got round to recording something new.  A sparkling album from Carmen Cavallaro.  Apologies for the crackles and pops.  Great album, though.

Not sure of the year though, late 50s, early 60s.

Hammond Fever (Deacon Stereo) (1971)

The run up to Christmas with a five-year-old and a wife is never easy!  That's what I'm blaming my lack of posts on.  So, to make amends I'll be posting some stuff that I've posted....elsewhere...he says in a mysterious way.

In memory of my Mom who would have been 75 today.

This is a corker.

Various Artists - Latin Delights - Verve

Apologies for the recent lack of posts.  Anyway, here's a little cracker to end November with.  Unfortunately, a cracker with a few crackles, but I thought those were a small price to pay for such a quality compilation.

Here's a little taster, courtesy of Kai Winding.

Franck Pourcel and Pepe Jaramillo - Studio 2 Stereo

In-Flight Entertainment started two years ago today and to celebrate I'm posting a couple of S2S belters from Franck Pourcel and Pepe Jaramillo.

I must apologise for the lack of posts during November but I've been pretty busy at work and home and so haven't had the chance to rip any of the big pile of albums waiting to be posted.

To make up for it I'll be reposting some albums you may have missed over the last two years so please drop me an email - or leave a comments - if you have any requests and I'll see what I can do.

Thanks to all of you who've given encouragement and suggestions since November 2009.

Jean Bouchety - The Rhythm Sounds and Melodies of (1971)

You lucky lot, what a weekend!  Not only do I give you the superb Charlie Byrd album, but now this corker from Jean Bouchety.  Oh happy day!

Charlie Byrd with Orchestra and Chorus - Hollywood Byrd (1967)

A brilliant choice to kick the weekend off even if I say so myself.  Some really nice tracks on here, with evergreen Georgy Girl being a personal favourite.

Gerry Butler - The Happy Hammond Goes Pop Country (1972)

A companion to the album posted at the beginning of the week.  Similarly, this was ripped at the beginning of the year and I'm mystified that I haven't posted it before.

Phil Allen - The Happy Hammond Goes Pop (1972)

This was encoded way back in January  but for some reason I never got round to uploading it (along with Country Pop).  I did upload one track to YouTube though and I'd like to thank Jules for reminding me about the LP.

Esquivel - More Of Other Worlds, Other Sounds (1962)


An album rightly regarded as a classic.  Maybe not quite as good as the first LP in the series but great stuff all the same.

Happy Sunday.

Henry Mancini - Symphonic Soul (1975)


Well, apparently this is our last day of the indian summer, so what better way to say goodbye than with this album, one of the best you'll hear today, or any day for that matter.

The wonderful Butterfly.

Be quick though; I think we're on someone's hit list again.

Charles Magnante - Fiesta! (1964)

I posted this album a while ago, but I'd messed up and posted Carnival instead.  Well, finally here is the correct album and sleeve.

Especially for those of us in the UK who are enjoying this Indian summer.  Should hit 26 today and 29 tomorrow.  Phew, what a scorcher!

Music Of Mystery Mayhem And Murder (1965)

Unforunately, not quite as exciting as the cover would suggest, but a good mid-sixties spy related album for all that.

Stan Butcher - His Birds And Brass (1966)


Four years before Barbara Moore sung on the wonderful Birds 'N Brass album with Keith Roberts she worked on a similar project with Stan Butcher.  No, not as funky as Sort Of Soul, but it does have it moments with Clunky being a good example.

Lenny Dee - In Hollywood! (1962)


Been meaning to post this since the summer but forgotten all about it.  A nice album from Lenny.

Zubin Mehta - Star Wars And Close Encounters (1978)


To celebrate my Star Wars Blu-Ray box set arriving from Amazon yesterday here's more Star Wars related tomfoolery.
