  • Strings a go go!

    Dudes. I need some recommendations on records with superb string arrangements. Things I'm thinking of are :-

    London Suite
    Stringtronics
    Histoire De Melody Nelson
    Le Planet Sauvage
    Insolitudes

    Any library or uk stuff would be appreciated.

                La Ragazza Fuoristrada.

                If none of you have the easy tempo reissue of this then you are missing out BAD&#33;

                    I&#39;m a massive fan of Johnny Gregory&#39;s heavy cinematic strings, I&#39;m thinking &#39;Jaguar&#39; from Man For All Seasons or &#39;Face In The Clouds&#39; from Gregory Conducts here.

                    In fact, you could probably do worse than checking for stuff on the old Sound Gallery LPs eh (particularly Vol.1)? Loads of big strings on those babies.

                    I was recently surprised to highly enjoy a fine version of David Gates&#39; soppy 70s hit &#39;Make It With You&#39; by the John Fox Orchestra (on BBC), which has some awesome big sweeping string arrangements - it&#39;s proper class, like.
                    Let him have the lot for £2.00 - we were only going to throw 'em out anyway...

                        Its funny because I never did rate that &#39;man for all seasons&#39; lp. I had the chance to buy it a few times and ive always stuck it back in the racks. Maybe I was always in a duff mood. Whats it upto these days?

                          What??&#33;&#33; Personally Serms it&#39;s one of my favourite UK funky easy LPs - you&#39;ve got Jaguar, Jet Stream and the killa-dilla funk of Earthshaker.. it&#39;s superb.

                          I finally copped one off the bay a few weeks back, after having been hunting it down at a (fairly) reasonable price for at least 4 or 5 years. Mine was £25 (oof&#33, which was the same price recordkingz were trying to sell one for with no sleeve&#33; Usual dealer price is around £40.

                            A bit off topic, i know, but i went on a bit of a version excursion with &quot;make it with you&quot; yesterday afternoon.

                            check out:

                            nancy wilson (capitol lp - early-ish gamble and huff production)
                            bobbi houston (action 7&quot
                            spoonbread (stang 7&quot

                            can anyone recommend any others?
