    Sir,

    "Plays Pop, Jazz & Swing" is OK but a little too cheesy for me. It does, however, have a mad CzechAfroChantDiscoFunkBigBandGrooveThing track on it with 'Rain' in title (I am not at home so cannot give full title). I would say it's worth picking up if you see it for a couple of quid.

    Regards the Bulgarian TV Band. Apparently theres a funky album called 'Studio 1' worth looking out for.

    Gustav Brom & His Orchestra "W Tanecznych Rytmach" (Muza mid 70's)
    illczechbigbandfunkrare

    How does this album compare to his 'Plays Pop Jazz & Swing'? Is it quite common in your neck of the woods?  

    Do you get much Bulgarian Television & Radio releases round your way.
    I've never heard 'Plays Pop Jazz & Swing' by Gustav Brom, but anyway that title is good description of what "W Tanecznych Rytmach" lp is.
    There are few very nice jazzrock tunes, couple swingin' boogies & some pop melodies played in bigband way

    Nice album but not best by him -its not superrare but not often finding also

    About bulgarian TV & Radio :
    I've got one release on Balkanton, its called "Pop Jazz" with Variety Orchestra Of TV & Radio (VOCTR), Sofia Orchestra & Staccato Orchestra, all from Bulgaria & playing only their original compositions

    There are 2 superb cuts - pulpy soulful "The Corn Cockle" & supa-fonky-full-of-rjd2-style-horns "Boryana"

    Rest is not so bad fonky-easy-swingin-bigband-jazzrock with breaks but those two are essential

    I saw another VOCTR release recently (on the fair mentioned above), but i didn't bought it - it was double album with yellow cover & big letters "VOCTR"
    Reading liner notes gives me opinion thats typical crap bigband jazz, but I could be wrong.
    My fault if its raregoodbulgariantvradiobreakbeatrare and I left it in oldman's dusty crate ........

    And coincidentally I've found an empty sleeve for 'Moment Of Truth' in Barnardo's in North Finchley before - so cheers Colin! 'Right Now' is cracking.

    Good LP all the same....
    there's no polish only lp of salena.
    both 'The Moment Of Truth' & 'Everybody's Talkin' have polish pressing.

    I havent heard whole lp yet coz its really dusty & i'm going to wash it carefully now

    it contains one awesome funky track "Right Now" & couple nice soulful tunes like "What is this thing called love ?", "For Me" & others

    I very much like her "black" voice combined with mansfield's funky orchestrations

    Very nice piece to listen to it

    i've heard that this lp was released only in Poland, but i'm not sure that's true

    i could send you some soundclips if you want to
