  • I can relate to 'Sketches of Spain' I used to chill to it a lot, another Miles LP I know for sure I heard before 'Kind of Blue'.

    Just to add thanks for posting that link Relkeel listening now, I say that still cant find it, ah found it 1 hour 55 in, me being an idiot. Ta.

    "can definitely relate to your description of how these LPs and Miles Davis take you off somewhere lovely (I'm paraphrasing ). I have the same. Sketches of Spain is my go to Miles LP. The Maria Callas album has the same effect."

              Anything here I should be giving a whirl?

              Edit. Just played the tubby Hayes and Paul Gonsalves one due to him being mentioned in the post above. Not my cup of skad. It's too "jazzy" if that even makes sense.
              Oof- been a good month for jazz finds
              I really rate the Tracey LPs and the Gonsalves/Hayes which also has Tracey on piano
              As for some classic Miles on UK pressings - yum!

              • I noticed that, not done much research but I'm guessing from what little I've read its like an Open Arts based project, there is even a Swedish branch who changed their name to ABBA and probably disappeared into obscurity I expect.

                Anyway it was good, started off on a bit of downer with 'This Little Light of Mine' but got quite good as it went along. I should be listening to my own in pile instead I've been listening to a segment on Radio 3 on Indian classical and your odd folk find.

                • I was in two minds about grabbing this because of its 1982 vintage but thought I'd give it a go at 75p:



                  https://www.discogs.com/London-Philh...elease/2646483

                  London Philharmonic Orchestra - A Classic Case Of Funk

                  There'e some good bass playing here no idea who but on the whole it sounds like 'Sky'. The opener isn't bad and 'Bach to Funk' works kinda but pretty fromage on the whole. Track 7 'Funky Guide to the Orchestra' has some good parts in it and some superb bass again, I'm just not feeling the funk though.

                  On to side 2 the opener is 'A Case of Romantic Funk' which is a cheesy disco number of various romantic pieces by different composers again, good in spits and spots but not feeling it even with the waka-waka guitar. Track 2 is terrible unless you like light versions of Swan Lake. On to track 3 has a great intro that perked my interest, not a drum break but a nice guitar, bass loop then it goes all 'Kenny G' on me, Fail. More cheese then onto the penultimate track which has another nice funk break at the start again bass and drums but then its downhill once more and sounds like the theme tune to 'Never the Twain' for a moment and gets worse. The final track has what to my ears sounds like an 808 drum machine at the start and throughout about 2 bars bare so a break! However I don't think it would pose much of a problem to program it yourself. There are some usable parts so I'll find a rip of it as it was reissued on CD in the late eighties otherwise it goes into the 'ripping' box with this poor review to guide me.

                  Ignore the video on the discogs page don't know why its been linked but its a later project and is not on this album.

                  • had that back in the 90s, also the MfP "Classics With A Beat", which I wouldn't mind hearing again for a laugh - I think the Beethoven 5th had a big drum fill in the pauses in the famous opening, but otherwise was just orchestra with drummer IIRC

                    Seems there a few records with the "Classics With a Beat" title, including one on Studio 2 - anyone know that? Never bought the James Last classical ones, but presume he adds a beat?

                    This is good though, because they're proper arrangements:

                    • OK, it's been a while ... been busy, but here are some of my finds from the past 2 weeks:



                      Doji Morita - Nocturne 夜想曲 (1982) Atlantic L-12530

                      I would never have picked it up if I hadn't been able to get some information from a friend who was with me. He said: "It's dark. You'll like it"

                      It sounds like someone who wanted to be Claudine Longet, but it's not bad. He may yet be right.

                      • Very excited to pick this up from ebay very cheap a while ago



                        Plug 1&2 Angel6 ... I love Plug .... inspirational drum and bass ... incredible beats and stuff that makes you laugh and smile at about 150 BPS

                        • Another one I've been wanting for a long time ... everybody knows Lalo Schifrin is a genius, but this is maybe his best ... quite psychedlic in a quiet, relaxed way ... no fuzz guitars but track titles like Vaccinated Mushrooms and Wheat Germ Landscapes ... thoroughly recommended



                          Lalo Schifrin ‎– There's A Whole Lalo Schifrin Goin' On (1968) Dot Records ‎DLP 25852 LP USA

                          • This was a bit sad. Found this in one of my favourite shops very cheap, but it said on the price tag: has damage

                            Took it out and there was a gigantic scratch on the 1st track ... the owner said: I won't be able to sell that, I'll give it to you:



                            Tracks 2 and 3 are OK and pretty good ... the sleeve is immaculate ... I guess the previous owner fell over while puttting the rekkid away ...

                            Terumasa Hino - Swing Journal Jazz Workshop 1 - Terumasa Hino Concert (1969) Columbia -XMS-10016-CT LP

                            • I love Brazilian music and I'd never seen this one, but how could you go wrong with Joyce and Vinicius de Moraes ... it's wonderful



                              Joyce & Vinicius de Moraes - Negro Demais no Coracao

                              • OK, last one ... I love early Siouxsie and the Banshees ... had to have this ... it sounds as good as the 1st time I bought it as a teenager



                                Siouxsie And The Banshees - Join Hands (1979) Polydor MPF1267 LP
