    oh my mistake then, I remembered it having sax solo's over everything. Something put me off it, maybe it was the jungle noises.

    No saxuality solos on my copy, mik.

    It's a top record, save for the jungle noises - much are bearable depending on how drunk your crowd is.

    maybe you should have started a new thread...

    whats intereseting is a) why Beacon had it
    b) why someone chose to fucking ruin the thing with those stupid jungle noises. Listen to it - they are added later. I don't think they were ever intended to go on those tunes.

    All of which leads me to believe that its an album, unreleased in the states - maybe unfinished? - that for some reason they bought off JGP, or otherwise acquired, and not knowing what to do with it, tried to turn it into a novelty record by overdubbing all those stupid noises. Which means that maybe, somewhere, maybe there's a tape without the noises. And that would be a good record. as opposed to one which is a bit shit, all told, because its been ruined by some twat with a BBC sound effects record.

    No, J.G. Principato is a real person and he is from NY, he still lives there I think (he's a drum teacher, and for a long time had his own drumming school). Anyone who doubts this is advised to check the writing and production credits on any 45s on the 'Firebird' label out of NY, eg. Kim Tamango's 'Not by Bread alone'....

    This tune was comped on 'Planet Of The Breaks' vol.3, along with a tune by Alan Tew called 'Soul Deeper' - I'm sure this is off a Themes library - anyone?

    yes, i think we can take those sleeve notes with a very large pinch of salt! it has to be some UK arranger really, doesnt it?

    Yeah, I was going to include that in the Brillo comp until I read the back cover.

    It was released on Beacon in the UK, but recorded by a bunch of dudes from NY.......or so it says???

    started a topic Prince pato expedition

    Prince pato expedition

    The pound boxes at the local weekend rekid fair caughed up The Prince Pato Expedition 'Firebird 1' LP on Beacon...ooooh, its very, very nice indeed! think a smoother, less frenetic Mandingo and you're not far off-think one of the tracks has been comped somewhere...

    anyway, the credits go to one, ahem, Jesse G. Princapato....yeah, right...who is it really then?

    any ideas?
Working...
