  • The Gimmicks ‎– Mixed Up Lydia's Pickin' Up Painted Ping Pong Balls

    Folks

    I've been recommended this Gimmicks LP and it sounds like it will be right up my alley, but I would love to hear it before I splash out. Does anybody have a rip they could let me have access to? Thanks in advance.

    I don't, but I had a copy of their follow-up for a while. High standard bossa/Brazilian/easy listening fare from Sweden, obviously. I can't imagine the LP will be that different in sound. Ultimately I let mine go.

      Yes, the tracks I've found from other albums are very good, but I'm wondering if that LP will be just more of the same with a groovier cover. There was also a re-issue a couple of years ago. Weird that there appears to have been no digital. Maybe the Gimmicks are anti-digital. It happens.

      Thanks Eine.

        Hi Eine, I spotted this page but couldn't vouch as to whether it's safe to download or not:

          I never got this LP not sure and not sure why ? "Music Is What We Like To Play" had a few nice bits on it. Let us know if you do find some clips or jump in a buy one !

          Maybe its downbeat with depressing themes and technically imperfect vocals but it is an excellent example of a downbeat mix with depressing themes and technically imperfect vocals

            That was one of the pages I found. It leads to a dodgy sign-up page.

              I have it but it's well buried somewhere - if I can find it I'll burn you a copy.

                Thanks for the offer. My friend who recommended it ripped it for me. It's pretty good.
