  • Their best tune IMO is Shadows, on the b side of the cheap as chips Tchaikovsky one 45. Written by Rod Argent no less!
    Opportunity Knocked for them in '73
    Everyone tear down your own little wall
    That keeps you from being a part of it all
    Because you've got to be one with the one and all
    You've just got to be close to it all

      Wow, somehow missed these until today. Another great haul Funktionnaire - and a second mention for Richard Rodney Bennett this month - looking forward to some writeups!

        • I'm not sure who 'Jarrett' is barking at when he gets in full flow, seems to lose himself to it, which can be a good or bad thing, it's a marmite style unique to him which sometimes comes off and other times gets a bit full on but always interesting.

          I love a good bit of musical worship as much as the next man but you're right that first track in particular a product of its time. Funny though little raises my heckles music or otherwise these days but that seemed to, first time in ages.

          • Thanks GC. Comments might be a while coming. Because (a) I’m busy, and (b) I generally find it harder to digest this stuff in 1-2 sittings.

            I am ‘surprised’ that I missed the Stockhausen and the KJ before.

            Still many boxes there. Mostly classical. The occasional other thing (e.g. a record by the “High Level Ranters”). Unless you know your classical you’ll be stumped. There was a guy there who said he was after Delius. I pulled out 7-8 Delius records. He took none of them.

            Even at $2.50 a pop, I feel I have to exercise a bit of restraint.

                    • Yes indeed, really crossing some long time wants off the list.

                      This was a very lucky find for sure, almost had a heart attack. No stall owner around to chat to about it either as the pricing is very strange, he/she had even written 'rare' on the plastic sleeve.....

                        • I am certain that there isn't. Worth looking out for, I take it.

                                One good thing about a cover like that is that I don't have to concern myself with the thought that I might in the past have looked and decided against it.
