  • Duke of Burlington

    Anyone know any background info on the duke? I was introduced to his fine psych mod instrumentals back in the early 90's by record man round london town Po-lo. Since picked up a comp on wah wah and a ltd reissue of the 'pressed piano'. Viva Tirado seems to end up all over the place... Is the duke Italian?

      It's by Jack Hawkins. Personally, my favourite is Willie Mitchell's.

        The last time I asked this question, the thread descended into a discussion about dolly mixtures. Good look in your quest.

                The Duke Of Burlington were a band - not an individual.....and yes they were Italian....

                    The main man behind the Duke Of Burlington was Italian pianist/accordionist Mario Battaini (1931-2000), who also made jazz accordion records under the alias Batman.

                    I think the Duke of Burlington name was originally coined as a rip-off of 'The Marquis of Kensington' - the Marquis did the original version of 'Flash', which the Duke covered (and rather well, I might add).

                    The Duke's recording of Flash also appeared on a German LP credited to one Early Freeman und sein Orchester - Early Freeman appears to be a house pseusonym used by the Italian production company Saar who recorded the Duke Of Burlington material.

                      It is a shame, however I don't know if you know, but you can get hold of that track on Jack Hawkins Psychedelic Seventies LP.
