  • Keith Manifold

    Just been listening to "Beat Incidental" KPM 1043. "Funky Fanfare (Small Group)" - Same Melody as KPM 1038B-8 Organ & Rhythm section only.

    A) What is KPM 1038 B 8 ?

    B) It's the same tune as James Royals' "House of Jack" and much of the Loot OST

    All Keith Mansfield joints. Few too many Brandys Keith ? or he just couldn't be arsed that day

      From recollection, Keith Mansfield is pretty honest about the 'recycling' of Funky Fanfare.

      Apparently, he was originally supposed to write a B side for Tony Newman, a drummer who was signed to Decca. He'd done the track for KPM, but reused it for this supposed B side, which Decca liked so much it was used for the 'A'.

      Not a hit, it was then reused *again* for the James Royal and Paul Raven (Gary Glitter) vocal tracks. Not heard 'Loot', but it was then covered again later on by one of Steve Hillage's projects which Rich has (can't remember the same).

      While we're on the subject, any other versions of the tune that we should know about ?

        The slow prog version is by Arzachel and they call it "Queen Street Gang". The Loot soundtrack doesn't have a direct "Soul Thing" version but a few of the tracks are reminiscent.
        Incidentally the James Royal LP has a track called "Little Red Wagon" on it which is basically a version of "Powerhouse Pop" with vocals.

                      I think the Arzachel version was called 'Queen Street Gang' because that was the title of a TV series that used 'Funky Fanfare' as its theme tune.

                      Hasn't Keith done two versions of this, '...Fanfare' on KPM and 'Soul Thing' on 'All You Need Is......'?

                        yep soul thing and funky fanfare are the same track.

                        funky fanfare is on at least 2 separate kpms - maybe 3. Too hungover to check...

                          Re Keith Mansfield interviews - pretty sure there's one with him and Alan Hawkshaw in one of the early issues of Big Daddy, conducted (if you'll pardon the expression) prior to the KPM All Stars show at the Jazz Cafe a few years ago.

                              Thanks for informing me. I've never seen a copy of Big Daddy, let alone read one so could anybody out there help me by scanning or photocopying me a copy of the Hawkshaw/Mansfield interview. Any help much appeciated. Thanks.
