    finally got the 12 Tops '2001' at the weekend, and got that Latinaires version the other week, so hearing SoS's as well - it's a been a non-stop ride of Strauss excitement (or something)

    Ah, but you people didn't have the honour of hearing Son Of Stan's 2001 offering on Monday. As someone with no particular fondness for the tune it certainly put a big cheesy grin on my face.

    I'm not sure whether it is the version of 2001 that isn't being dissed, or the LP that it is from (like LDJB I only have the 45), but if it is the former I feel I should stand up for it.

    It's my second favourite cover of Deodato covering Strauss.

    Did anyone else read that piece in the last Wax Poetics about Deodato by the way ? That version of 'Also Sprach...' was apparently the first take. Without overdubs. Pretty amazing.

    I've got a 45 of that track and I quite like it - never seen the 33 though.
    Ah well, opinions differ and all.

    I had the LP this is from but I've forgotten what it's called, and I know for a fact I gave it back to the charities last time I moved house.

    It had a woman's face on the cover, which is not exactly helpful when distinguishing Ray Conniff LPs (unlike "Send In The Clowns", she was at least a hottie).

    There was actually one tune on their I quite liked, not funky but quite spooky sounding, well for the first 30 seconds or so anyway.

    (Do people still say "pants" in the UK?)

    Anyway, now that I have this valuable information I can flood the trades board with copies of Send In The Clowns.

    Did that LP get a UK issue ? It's been a long time want (ie want to dig, not to buy off eBay) and I've never seen it. This, naturally, annoys the hell out of me.
    You can get it on his "Send in the Clowns" (should be well common) or "T.V. Themes" (apparently less so).

    The latter is preferable as it has a good "Police Story" theme on it as well.

    I might have a double of "Send in the Clowns" if I didn't already throw it away in a fit of pique, I'll check it out...

    I like a couple cuts off that album. S.W.A.T. as mentioned, but also the title cut and their version of Baretta's Theme.

    Their other album, "Sky's the Limit" has that BDP sample already mentioned, but also a cover of Starsky and Hutch.

    Call me a sucker, but I do like themes from 70s cop shows that I grew up with.

    Sky's the Limit: (ABC 1978)
    * "Sky's the Limit"
        Boogie Down Productions's "Nervous"

    I like this song a lot and played it out quite a few times, often having people asking me the title, so it has an impact for sure. Gets played in the bboy circles too.

    I don't think the 'Theme From SWAT' album got a UK release but I'm pretty sure there's a UK issue Conniff album with it on.

    I've had a couple out of charities - doesn't mean it's UK though I suppose.
