  • 1986 Street Sounds Documentary

    I've nicked this link off the Faith board, so sorry if you've already seen it.

    A 1986 documentary about Morgan Khan's Streetsounds (then) empire featuring Hugh Laurie, Steve Walsh, the legendary James Hamilton and (you couldn't make this up) Jesuit priests dancing at the Wag!

    it's OK to head out for wonderful, but on your way to wonderful, you're gonna have to pass through all right. When you get to all right,
    take a good look around and get used to it, because that may be as far as you're gonna go.

    Excellent viewing...thanks for that. Proud as hell to spot my brothers name adorning a Street Sounds article on the stroke of 15.29! Had I blinked...I'd have missed it.

                  Minor thread hijack but Streetsounds- related.

                  Does anyone know why the original Streetsounds Jazz Juice comps on CD are so damn hard- to- find / raer?
                  I'm talking here about the original CD releases on Streetsounds with almost identical covers to the LPs, not the Beechwood reissues which have completely different covers.

                  I know for sure they were only issued in Canada between 1985 and 1988 but is that the explanation?

                    For those not aware of Street Sounds fate, 2 years later this happened:


                    I loved Street Scene magazine. It had a great roster of columnists inc Richard Searling, Ian Levine, Steve Rumney and Ralph Tee.
