  • The VG+ CD Swap 2015 Track List Thread

    Maybe it's a little bit earlier for this but I have my contribution ready so, here it goes.



    First and foremost, credit must be given to ETK for suggesting half of the title of the compilation. Thanks so much for defining, with just 2 words, the vibe of my eclectic mixes. I love the term and I will embrace it for my subsequent cds.

    I have tried to make a similar mix to my 2013 effort but this time leaning more on music that, I hope, will be easier for ears not used to this kind of "folk". From the nearly 80 songs selected for this year's swap, all the field recordings, Middle Easter music, flamenco and many of the Greek ones weren't included to make the cds more accessible. Hope you like it.

    Each year I have a little battle, trying to remember how Audacity works, sorting out noise problems with my recordings....it all gets a bit stressful. Seeing someone has already produced a DOUBLE cd with a fantastic cover, and me not even started yet, makes me feel like the kid turning up late for school who hasn't done his homework (probably more truth in that than I'd like to admit).
    That looks smashing Carlitos. No chocolatier on the cover?

              This cd has been on the make since last year, when my laptop died. My idea was to make a trad jazz cd but I don't have enough good songs in that style so I resorted to non-electric folksy tunes but soon I got carried away and included many styles that wouldn't be considered as folk... Oh well, as long and the music flows....

              The cover is just an scan of a Spanish record by Miguel Aceves Mejía with a cover by Jim Flora. I just changed the title: using WhatTheFont! I searched for the closest match to the original font to emulate the title.

              This is the back cover of the cd, also an illustration by Jim Flora.

                  Feel free to do so Jim Flora worked for Columbia and illustrated many many records. When he was made Art Director he also created a magazine, Coda, with many of his illustrations. The record tree is one from this period.

                    This is great. Never heard of Jim Flora before(a). I love the old school British lino-cut prints, Bawden (Edward & Richard )are favourites in this house, and Jim fits in nicely alongside them, with the added bonus of records and record players. Right, how much for an original Flora?

                      http://www.jimflora.com/ There are some links there to some of his prints and even wall paper.

                      But you can always try to buy the records instead. I found 2 45s in Spain of Mexican Folk Songs (Canciones Populares Mejicanas) in Madrid's rastro for 50cents each and Babycart found Mambo For Cats also there. Just find your favourite cover and check in discogs and ebay.

                      I will also recommend his books of record covers and illustrations. There are 4 so far and they are fascinating. But don't think all his art is similar, there is a dark side to many of his illustrations too, really macabre sometimes

                        Already found that site I'm waiting for Mrs Treeboy to get back from her run to see if she wants to bag a copy of Bell Island At Night. Consider my mind blown Carlitos. Many thanks
                        Oh no! just spotted the Mambo for cats wallpaper.....aaaaaaaargh! The Utrecht funds are under pressure

                          Looking really good, mate. Lots of interesting sounding names but not many I know. I am sure it will be a winner like in previous years.

                            I´m still trying to locate precisely the right version of El Bimbo for mine.

                            This is not it.

                            Vardy.....¡¡¡PELIGRO!!!
