  • Euro 45 Recommendations ?

    Can anybody recommend a few 45s (or even LPs) to add to my slightly narrow collection of 'euro-beat' ?

    I've gradually picked up a few of the more obvious pieces ('Le Winston' - The Nilsmen', '00-43-GM ' - The Moody Sec, a few Duke of Burlington 45s) and am a bit short on the knowledge on where I should be looking for other stuff in this vein.

    I'm not looking for trophy pieces, just good solid groovers. You can still say 'groovers' can't you ?

    The dutch scene is wicked! I loved it at utrecht listening to all the kooky 45's.

    Rob Franken
    Jess and James
    JJ Band
    Case and the pressure group
    Q65

    Shocking blue are really good - famous for venus - but their lps are very very very good.

    There is a guy called behindthedykes on ebay. He sells shit loads of hot stuff. He has sound samples on there too so you can easily note down the hot tracks. Ive got a massive list of euro beat things to find.

    The belgium beat scene I know little about and the spanish even less. Theres time to learn though!

              Cheers sermad, i'll have to check out that &quot;Case and the Pressure Group&quot; sounds intresting (if only for the name heh), couple more to add..

              David Whitaker - Ce soir apres diner (im sure everyone knows), very cool looping drums + bass.

              L'Etrangere ep by Romuald has a nice beaty jerk track on it, and is on the AZ label, which seems to have a few cool french soundtracky moments.
              working together for better bass and treble

                        I certainly didnt get one off ebay!! I always used to bid on them and if they got over a tenner I stopped.

                        nah naaaah.



                        Si - I saw you bidding on these recently....

                          Well, I'll cheerfully admit that I got my copy off eBay. €5 - a bargain as far as I'm concerned.

                            as sold by record girl.

                            I paid £55 for my pair - so these look like a bargain so far. I wore them when I was doing my new mix CD and they worked a treat (especially when those toilet-break moments come by)

                              There seems to loads of stuff out there: the Spanish scene is a bit frustrating, though, mainly because recording quality can be pretty rough. A couple of nice mod-ish things I've found have included Marisol (nice Dusty Springfieldish numbers like El Cochecito) &amp; Kuldip (a completely mad Pakistani singer doing 'Goldfinger' en espanol) but anything more than pence &amp; I feel very wary of taking the plunge after hearing too many ropey twists &amp; covers of Eurovision hits recorded using clay inscription tools on concrete....
