  • Jack emblow

    Whilst on a mini digette this lunchtime I copped a Studio2stereo LP by Jack Emblow which is rather unpromisingly titled "Accordian Fire" (still to be played so I dare say dissapointment is in store). According to the sleeve notes the LP contains the efforts of our old chums Don Lusher, Roger Coulam and Denis Lopez among others and also has three or so tracks penned by Pete Moore.

    The question is who is Jack Emblow and why is he hanging out with with such a stellar line up?

        lee - you know the birds & brass album right? jackie emblow played the 'trivox' on it and very funky it was too. you must have read the article here on vv about that. a sort of amplified accordian.

        i also remember him backing the cliff adams singers back in the day on "sing something simple" on a sunday afternoon as a kid, when i waiting for the top40 to start. not so funky!

        anyway, got any crap libs for me?  

        ha! there's a bit of info for you anyway.

              Surely for people in Blighty of a certain age there was no single more depressing sound than the Cliff Adams Singers droning out of the radio on a Sunday afternoon. If anything brings back the full horror of the approach of a Monday morning at school it's that. . . Well, that and the music to 'Last of the Summer Wine.

                Ah, someone else waiting for the VHF frequency to switch at 5pm from Radio 2 to Radio 1 so that they could make pause tapes of the Top 40 show. I always had to sit through at least 10 mins of 'Sing Something Simple' too

                I feel old all over again......

                    blimey. yes, it was all about that wasn't it?

                    and the theme tune to "the money programme" always meant the prospect of being back at school next day.

                      Bang on, guv! One of my friends still comes out in a cold sweat whenever he hears the 'MP' theme for this very reason!

                      Sorry LDJB - we seem to have turned this thread into some of kind of offshoot of Dullards Reunited. I for one am still interested in your Jack Emblow LP so hurry back once you've listened to it!

                        I get the same chills down my spine when I hear the 'Antiques Roadshow' theme.

                        I have this concomitant feeling of guilt that I may have an assignment (or other piece of homework) that must be handed in next morning - even now, 7 years after leaving full-time education!

                        Damn you Hugh Scully!!

                          Am I hallucinating, or is the Money Programme theme actually off the Jimmy Smith/Lalo Schifrin 'The Cat' LP? Every time I play that LP, there's a track that makes me think of Valerie Singleton looking very un-Blue Peter, and intercut with footage of red-bracered yuppies waving betting slips about...

                          And I used to hold out for Anne Nightingale's weekly Sunday night play of Christina's 'Is That All There Is' with the pause button waiting...always missed it, too.
