  • Organ in orbit!

    Got 'Roger Coulam Quartet' - Organ in orbit for a quid today!

    Anyone have any knowledge on this? It must be *the* roger coulham - a typo perchance?

    Its on cbs from '67 - its a tad easy hammond jazz but 'simba' is very groovy - 'Make 'em have it' is very cool hammond too.

    Need to give it another listen now...Im gonna chart this me thinks!

    Strange coincidence but I just got a copy of this too - I totally agree with Sermads choice of tracks and would add &quot;Shrimp Boats&quot; as a fave too. I&#39;m pretty sure it is THE Roger Coulam as in &quot;Hammond Stereo Sounds to Spoil You&quot;, Blue Mink and Ugly Custard - Chris Vulture could probably cinfirm for definite. Chris?

          Ah but if you see Banner Man on 45 don&#39;t put it back. The flip, Mind Your Business, sees Alan Parker get pretty fuzzy without losing the groove. For a change.

            sweet&#33;

            where&#39;s the rest of the sauce with the &#39;Mink then?

            anyone?

            i read somewhere that they recorded &#39;Melting Pot&#39; for their own amusement during a break in the music for a young generation/ugly custard/hungry wolf session...and the rest, as they say...

                I always meant to ask - I know on the sleeve of Ugly Custard it SAYS keyboards by Roger Coulam, but to my ears it sounds exactly like it&#39;s Hawkshaw playing. PLUS two of the tracks on the Ugly Custard LP appear on the Hungry Wolf album, which IS a Hawkshaw album?

                And just to confuse matters even further, the two tracks on the Hungry Wolf LP are the same recordings as appear on KPM library LPs - Music For A Young Generation, I think... It&#39;s all too confusing by half.

                  I always find Blue Mink a bit frustrating - they should be great - I mean look who&#39;s in &#39;em - but more often than not they produce a load of old baaws&#33;

                  That said, the first LP (Melting Pot) has some cracking instrumentals on it by Parker / Flowers / Coulam which sound like the stuff they did for the Standard Libraries around the same time.

                  Also the track &quot;morning Dew&quot; is very funky and the self titled instro on the flip of the &quot;Melting Pot&quot; 45 is another fave&#33;

                  I think I&#39;ve got all the LPs (in fact I have a spare best of ... if anyone wants it) but I don&#39;t recognise that &quot;Eyeballs&quot; track is it 45 only?

                    I can&#39;t remember the name of the album but it did appear on an LP - the one with the sleeve designed by Hypgnosis.

                      Sorry to come in with a (slightly) unrelated question, but I was told once that The Underground&#39;s &#39;Beat Party&#39; LP was a Blue Mink related project as well, possibly (I&#39;m not sure about this) because the vocals were by Madeleine Bell...But as there are no credits whatsoever on the sleeve or label, I&#39;ve never managed to confirm or contradict any of this. Anyone know the story? Who&#39;s in the band?

                        Well, I have to admit, my knowledge of &#39;The Underground&#39; is limited to a brief listen I gave it in a shop in Aldershot, but I recognised Madeleine on vocals, and it&#39;s possible the rest of the Mink were on there too.

                        There were a couple of original compositions on the LP - can you give me the composer and publisher credits, and I&#39;ll see if I know anything.

                        Another Blue Mink side project - the theme from the 1970s adult education maths series &#39;Make It Count&#39;, hosted by Fred Harris. Written by Alan Parker, not funky, but I think it&#39;s dead catchy&#33;

                          It&#39;s called &#39;Fruity&#39; if I remember correctly.

                          It also has a nice souly cut called something like &#39;I&#39;d like To Be With You&#39;
                          He also contributed songs for the Jim Henson movie vehicle 'Muppets From Space'.

                            The only OG track is &#39;Beat Party&#39;, credited to Trench, &amp; published by Major Music (presumably related to Major Minor Records, who released the album), though there&#39;s another track I don&#39;t know called &#39;Can&#39;t Get It Into My Head&#39; credited to King (but this could well be another cover). The rest is all mod/soul covers - &#39;Mony Mony&#39;, &#39;Knock On Wood&#39;, &#39;Dance To The Music&#39;, &#39;Get Ready&#39; etc. Very well done, with enough spins on the (over)familiar tunes to give it a bit of character of its own.
