  • A Couple of KPM Questions

    This will be a quick one for somebody :

    What number KPM is Contempoprary Themes and is it a decent listen? I'm guessing it is probably part of the 1200 series.

    And secondly - I recently recieved a copy of Drama 1168 on KPM and on the back it says "Generic to KPM 1157" which is The Hunter (Drama Suite). I know this means that they are not the same tracks but rather similair in sound - but my question is does this appear often on other KPM's of note in the series?

    Thanks guys ...

        KPM 1205:

        It's not a bad album; I can place it on a CD-R for you if you'd like, some funky moments, brassy, drums, etc.

          Hello Gonzo - thank you for your follow up. I had an opportunity to buy it a month or two ago for &#3625 but hesitated mainly because it was into the 1200's and from what I understand those are usually pretty average.

          Thank you also for your offer of cd-r but that won't be necessary - my only cd player is in my car stereo which is currently on the fritz - it's had a cd stuck in it for about a month now and the radio is stuck to am only. Rush Limbaugh while I'm driving home from work - no thanks!!!

            Off the point, but this link has interviews on KPM Bruton &amp; Boosey &amp; Hawkes (in English) &amp; Montparnasse (in French). Some interesting stuff that might interest someone round here...

              Hi Sue!
              Sorry to hear about your stuck CD! But sometimes I do listen to Rush Limbaugh out of the Detroit ABC AM station. I listen more to Howard Stern since I work early mornings. Note to our UK and European readers: Howard Stern is THE original radio &quot;shock-jock&quot; and his radio show is HILARIOUS! Rent his movie &quot;Private Parts&quot;!
              &#3625 is toooooo much to pay for that LP! If you'd like it in the future I can CD-R it for you once your CD player is fixed. The offer will stand for as long as you want it! My favorite tracks on the LP are:
              The Big Event, Power Play, L.A. Express, Expansion Programme. Come to think of it, those are the best ones on the whole album.

              I have lots of KPM and Bruton vinyl and CDs as well as other libraries that I can record if you'd like as well. Check back at some of my other posts! I'm in Michigan by the way!
