  • U-turn music

    A few years ago on this very forum I denounced that I'd never heard a Bruton Library record I liked. I even swapped the only one I had to someone on here, which I try not to think about too much because it now goes for £40...

    In the years following that post I slowly started getting into it. Yeah I know 15 years late and all that...but really liking the stuff now.

    So what music have YOU changed your stance on?

    If it's of consolation I've only heard a hand full Bruton's I like, and when I say like, they're usually just a one tracker. Which is a bit of shame as they seem to be the library I see the most of!

      Its helping...a little bit...

      Thing is I've got this feeling that as well as getting the ones with the best music on the collecting mentality is taking hold. Not a good sign for my bank manager!

      There's a Luke Vibert's Nuggets Vol3 coming next month on Lo Recordings and its exclusively Bruton cuts. I'm assuming that will affect prices as well

        As a teenager I was a big fan of the music of The Doors. Then after all the hype around the film, I decided I had no need in my life for bad poetry made by alcoholic wife-beaters, so ditched it all. Then as time went by, I gradually decided I liked them again and slowly started buying all the albums back. And now, I've gone off them again and reckon I could live with "Peace Frog" and "Break on Through" but not much else.

        Mind you, I've said that once before...

          The "1970s Drama and Crime" CD is a nice compilation of the best Bruton 'crime funk' tracks.

          Oh, and country music. Grew up with my dad playing it, so used to hate it. Took me a long time to come round, Lee Hazlewood, Jerry Reed and a light dusting of Hank Snow did the trick...

            People can't seem to get enough of the late 70's early 80's library sound (De Wolfe and Bruton seem to be strong favourites), there seems to be a bit of a power shift on that front. Probably due to the fact everybody has been sweeting the early 70's ones for so long and ignoring the later ones, now like you and me people seem to be warming to them, that's my theory anyway!

            Apart from 'Drama montage', this would be one of the better ones in my collection (Not that I own many!) -

              Wow, that's a belter! And I like your explanation for people getting into the Bruton stuff too. I also read an interview with LVis 1990 (dunno if you're familiar with his music, his label's called Night Slugs) where he declared a big love for Bruton and early 80s library.

                  Couldn't it also be that some record buyers (yeah, I know it's some but still they are and have an impact on demand) are young and were children in the 80s instead of the 70s?

                  I know one reason I like library music from the 70s (even if it's not the breaks/funky bits) is that they have a special sound that I associate with my earliest years - when I was like 4-5 years old Swedish TV and radio was full of (even though it was the late 70s) early to mid 70s library cuts as themes and such to all kinds of TV programs? One kiddie show used JJ Perrey stuff for example...

                  So my nostalgia may be from maybe 1970 up until around 1976 perhaps whereas someone 10 years younger may feel mostly nostalgic about the early 80s library sound?

                    Im exactly the same with Bruton's.
                    I hated Bruton's so much that I can remember going to view a library collection for sale (was from a dealer so was going to be dealer prices) and leaving disgruntled as they were all crappy Bruton's.

                    Now years latter I'm buying them up, I'v got about 10 I really like, and there are probably about 10 more I will buy in time, there are not endless amounts of Bruton's Im interested in but there are certainly a handful that appeal to me.

                    My tastes in music have changed massively over the last 5-7 years, my music has got far more synthy which clearly explains my U-turn with Bruton Libraries.

                    If anyone is after any Bruton's there is a dealer near me who has most for sell, please PM me and I can pass on contact details.
