  • Brooke bond tea beat

    As an alternative to the Ebay 'MOODY' discussion can I bring to your attention this record? Having Previously and only once posted regarding Cliff Adams 'Crunch' flexi I thought I would keep the continuity and introduce the ' Brooke bond tea beat'. Its tons better than the 'Crunch' (which I have a spare copy for trade), it has a tighter groove, 'Hawkshaw style' Hammond and is on vinyl.

    Does any one else know of this one?

    Yeah, fairly known round these parts. Wish they'd stop saying PG tips all the bloody time though...

      I've never heard of it, but it sounds great! I love references to tea!

        Okay, i can top that, on me hols i picked up a 45 from 'Kosset carpets - spring 1971, soundtracks of the three 45 second television commercials', it's fookin' bollocks mind, and has no redeeming qualities at all, the music is piss poor, and there was me thinkin' i'd scored some lost fookin' masterpiece, haway, more like a fookin' bastad........:angry:

          Not up on the advertising 7"s myself, but recently traded a rather hilarious one-sided 45 to Blighty, which was called 'The Purity Jingle', featuring a song about "Purity Brand Pork Sausages From Ireland/The Ones You Love to Eat...". I'll let him be the judge of whether it's worth looking out for...

            Aha, Mr Veris - and Brooke Bond - that reminds me, thanks for your CD the other week at Brillo - that BB cut is pretty cool - the PG Tips quotes makes it! (Nick you miserable sod! )

            Oh and I'm now on the lookout for that Della Resse - killa track.

            I was meaning to ask if you had a tracklisting for your promo CD?

            Cheers mate!

              We had a natter about the Della Reese the other night. It's a single taken off her 'Live At The Playboy Club' LP (that's the strapline, can't remember the name of the damn LP! it had a UK release as well as a US release) - the 45 is a different mix without crowd noises and with bigger drums, although the LP mix is much longer and freaks out a little more.

              the single was a minor hit - got to about number 99 in the US, but is pretty hard to find nevertheless.

              thanks to Dean for the info!

                  There is also at least one LP pressed up Lyntone - manufacturer of many if not most of the advet flexi disks - to display their work, containing something like 20 different cuts.

                  One came up on eBay not so long ago and went for resasonable if not amazing money (£20 I think).

                  I'm guessing that there must be more copies of that knocking about, and most likely other Lyntone promo LP in existance. So come on Lord Thames, spill the beans....

                          I was bustin' that track many years ago and I've got the 45 & LP of "It was a very good year" and it's just an edit of the LP track i'd swear - "One more time" '67 HMV.

                            There are a couple of versions of Della Reese's "It Was A very Good Year". The one to look for is the ABC 7" version which has the 'hip-hop' drums.

                            I have a Stateside 7" but this is just edit of the track from the album and not as good imho.

                              Just remembered another nice advertising 7", which is the one Matt traded me a while back featuring 'Cliff Warwick & The Dollybeats' doing 'Sindy' - very 60s 'la-la-la' pop, and not very funky, but a great slice of 60s cheese nonetheless. Any chance Cliff Adams might be related to Cliff Warwick and his band 'The Dollybeats' (featuring Cliff on vocals, Terry Coombes on lead guitar, Paul May on Bass & RB Graham on drums). Unfortunately, as it says on the sleeve, "the name of the group and the names of the members are fictitious...". I'm guessing that if Lord Thames doesn't know who this lot really are, no one does...
