    I wondered which titles I should look for?


    Thanks

  • #2
    The Jack Arel & Pierre Dutour Dance and Mood Music ones are winners for a start but they don't have titles, just volume numbers.

    Also a lot of the late 60's - mid 70's yellow covers (sometimes with pics) are good ("Pop Sounds" by the Red Bricks is particularly tasty) but it depends on whose on 'em and there are loads of them so beware - tray and get a listen first.

    Avoid the later AV series - not heard a good one ever.

      It depends what you're into though. There's some cracking electronic stuff in the AV Series but I realise I'm one of the few people here that's into that stuff.

          Ah, but if you have a complete set and line them all up, all the spines read 'Chappell AV Series' - that's got to be worth something, surely?!

          You can do the same thing with the red sleeve Chappells too - they aren't too exciting musically though.

          Could somebody tell me where all these yellow Chappells are, 'cos I can never find them - I would certainly recommend the aforementioned Red Bricks LP, and also LPC 1045 'Music By Lee Mason' with the legendary 'Shady Blues' on it. There's another 'Music By Lee Mason' too, which I don't have

          A couple of the Chappell Index Series are worth getting, but tread carefully, because most of them have 1940s/50s stuff on them. Big Band Sounds vol 2 is good though, with tracks by Klaus Doldinger and Rolf Kuhn amongst all the old stuff.

          And if you have the technology, some of the later Chappell 78s are worth a punt too - they were still doing them up to 1969, and there's some great stuff, especially by Johnny Hawksworth. Many of these were recompiled on LPs with catalogue numbers like 'LPC921-935', the numbers corresponding to the original 78s. Look for the higher numbers in this series.

                  At one point I had 2 complete sets and a set of the red 'uns too but I've been offloading them to all and sundry. I still have half a cupboard full of cheesy 80's libraries - all manner of crap Brutons, De Wolfes, KPMs etc, if anyone wants some drop me a line (Blighty gets first dibs on those Chappells tho&#39.

                      Eiffel Tower from the late 60's is good with some nice Hammond bits. The wholea album is done in different styles similar to 'real' bnads/artists so you get a track that is just like Fleetwood Mac's 'albatross' but just enough different not to be. I think it's called Seagull or some such (haven't got the record to hand).

                      Chappell seem to have a few sound-a-like issues in their portfolio. One of the red ones has an Allman Brothers clone on it which I once played to the Allman Brothers No1 UK fan (so his business card said&#33. He nearly wet himself thinking it was the real thing. Cruelly I forgot to tell him where to find this 'unreleased' track , which I still lose sleep over naturally

                            DMM vol. 9 is, I believe, the one that was commercially released on the Concert Hall label credited to Ted Atking.

                            I've got a load of red Chappells - I'll have to see if I've got that Allman Borthers soundlaike......

                              Yes I think DMM 9 is the ted atking. Ive got DMM 7, 13, 19. All very nice.

                              I love the white chappell series. I think they were French only.

                              I also like the blue TVM chappell. Crazy crazy electronics. Some of the best roger roger wibblings are on here.
