    Can't D/L - i'm on my neighbour's PC, Can someone else check?
    If it works, it's be a good idea to edit the link into the first post, too.
    I feel a bit like I'm demanding a saddle for a gift horse here, but there's quite a few charts i've not managed to listen to much of due to the prospect of endless d/l ing (and Divshare can be a wee bit frustrating)
    I hope not. That would make me the Jimmy Savile of the record racks.

    Mmm...just tried it - all of the tracks are in one playlist and can be D/ld from one page, but I can't see how to get them all in one go - am I doing something wrong?

    *EDIT* - ah, no actually - you have to click individually on each link in the list at the bottom of the page which each take you to a new page - so not much of an improvement I'm sorry to say - thanks for the effort anyway, fellas!

    Sorry, Fuz. I am a twat.
    the way to do this is not like I said earlier. What you have to do is put the tracks into a zipfile on your computer (right click, Send To...), before you upload that to Divshare.

    I've just done it anyway, so you can paste this link into your first post.

    Gave this a first listen last night. Especially enjoying Cugie's take on Apache with marimba filigree, the rolling samba of Catete ( seems to be a standard carnival/fiesta song - Catete is an area of Rio) and mambo Popcorn.

    The other bonkersness hasn't registered fully yet,
    I hope not. That would make me the Jimmy Savile of the record racks.

    Efffing brilliant chart - -great work Fuz. I still enjoy taking punts on shite looking charity shop records (although defo waste a lot of oney doing so)

    Highlights that i didn't know are that amazers Dan Hill track - and the Ballroom cover of "Popcorn" +++

    I see Ballroom LPs around all the time, but never see any that look worth a quid punt. Any other Ballroom classics out there i've flicked past loads of times?

    Xavier Cugat's bongo player is amazing!
    the Ethiopian one and de Souza kicked in last night, too. wonderful.

    I think I've a worthy version of 'I feel fine' by Victor Sylvester which might make a future chart, should I find it! I'll have a rummage for the next chapter...

    great to hear Apache, a mate flicked me his spare of that Cugat album on Monday and I haven't had a chance to listen yet.
    picked up Viva Cugat yesterday for 50c as well, worth it for every second of Jungle Drums - give the bongos some...

    Boney had a copy of that Cugat album in his crates at the fair, that I don't think anybody picked up...

    Maybe if you PM him...

    Ballroom dancing records rarely disappoint in providing insipid, uninspired music... So its a genuine surprise to find a version of Popcorn to savour.
    I just found a surprisingly satisfying version of Santana's 'She's Not There' on an otherwise bleak Carlos Romanos ballroom LP 'Latin - The Modern Way.'

    Can we have a redeeming feature set from you at Brillo? Or maybe we could all slip a redeeming feature track into our sets?

    Got round to listening to this on my way to work this morning and it was a perfect hangover busting, 40 min bus journey Soundtrack so thanks very much

    In fact it inspired me to go out this lunch time and purchase some random LPs in the hope of some redeeming features...

    Great chart, I'm liking El Cumbanchero by Carlos Romanos.
    I have that record, I rate the version of one mint julep on the viva la samba album and just got stuck on that track.
    How many LPs did come out on spiral records?
    I have two others, the tv themes and a ballroom dancing LP by harry leader with a good version of the jason king theme which is itself a one tracker album.

    You're right the version of One mint Julep is indeed a tune, although ultimately I think I prefer Chico Arnez's version.

    Like wise with that Harry Leader version of The Jason King Theme, decent but the version on one of the MFP albums is out in front for my money.

    I had that record a while back but let it go for just that reason.

    Although a recent trade with a board member means I now have a copy again along with another Carlos Romanos record on Spiral, it's called 'Superlatin lupersatin' which I'm afraid I don't rate...

    I don't think I know the TV themes one though... Spiral is a beautifully packed label with proper heavy vinyl and if that weren't enough to convince you to find a place in your heart for it check out the slogan...

    Great thread. Nice to see diggin and openmindedness paying off in such a major way. Love the Light My Fire civil war/trad jazz/ragtime version.

    Oh I forgot about that other Carlos Romanos I had it and let it go, I'm still not an owner of the Chico Arnez version yet but its on my list.
    The tv themes is by Wilf Todd, with the cover it should be in the dog of the pops chart.
    Its not a bad listen as well, at least 7 good tracks from memory.
    Your right about the Jason King theme by Harry Leader, it isn't a patch on Geoff Loves version.
    Its a bit Ballroomy

    Smashing stuff again, mate.

    The Tradewinds is my favourite - I'm sure I've had something by them before that was pretty pedestrian but Alone is a little cracker.

    Yeah, proper tour-de-force Craig.

    Having been overloaded with Mr. Presley's version it's refreshing to hear it as it was intended - Mac wrote the song.

    Thanks Jim - glad you're enjoying it!

    Pedestrian is a great word for the rest of the album .

    Question is... is anyone else getting down to the Victor Silvester or is it just me ?

    I know Nige is, he's got a copy filed Fuz mate.

    I know where there is a copy, and Ive been pondering do I need another version of "Ironside" in my collection?
