Edmundo Ros

Post by pre65 » Tue Oct 04, 2011 10:08 pm

Steve mentioned Edmundo Ros the other day. Don't think I have any of his music so I've been on you tube to find some.

Quite good, but I won't inflict anybody with a clip or two. :wink: :lol:

The sound on this is out of this world, Phase 4 stereo an' all

Definitely one to cha cha cha round the floor to at Owsters

I challenge you to keep still listening to this

Or how about this from Bert Kaempfert.

"Welcome aboard B.O.A.C flight 215 to Rio De Janeiro and Brasilia.
Passengers are asked to observe the no smoking signs until the aircraft is airborne.
The captain and crew wish you a pleasant flight"

Wise guys buy their togs from Harry Fenton, the hip high street stylist.

Watneys Red Barrel - the beer of men.

Brut - the sophisticated fragrance.

Gals will go crazy when they know you drive an Austin 1100.

This time Troy Tempest will not escape.

The Light Progrmme continues to bring you all that is hip and groovy in the wonderful world of modern pop music.

Groovy :eek:

This is really too much, listening to that Bert Kampfert I can picture myself in bright white cotton clothing waiting for the day nurse to bring round the meds.

Scary. Yet oddly fascinating, in a perverse kind of way ;)

Heh heh

You've set me going now.
Here's a simply gorgeous tune I used to hear all the time
when I was a kid.
When they weren't playing soul on the ragiogram, Christine & Ray listened to Caroline. This seemed to be everywhere, then disappeared completely.

Until now that is......

Pah! Dave you're far too young to appreciate this stuff. :lol:

I'm almost too young myself, but people my age just about sneaked in under the wire. The last of the easy listening cognoscenti.

Now this is sooooo cool I'm freezing as I post it.

It might as well be being beamed in from another dimension, the world has changed so much.

And as with soul there are still people doing the easy listening thang today;
respecting the tradition whilst putting their own unmistakeable stamp on it.




I saw Swing Out Sister at Holmfirth Picture Dome.
Corrine is even more gorgeous in the flesh. :love10:

Oh God, it's 1966 again. I've just fallen of me push-bike and taken all the skin off my hands and knees. My brother's listening to Acker Bilk and Kenny Ball upstairs on the Telefunken tape recorder Dad got him for his 21st (I always liked Chris Barber better, especially with Ottilie Patterson). Mum's cooking Sunday lunch and The Navy Lark's just finished on the Light Programme. Turn it of quick Dad before Jimmy Clitheroe comes on! Now, where's that EP that Mum bought yesterday? I thought it was nice. Oh yes, here it is:

Blimey, illusions can be shattered, can't they? I thought they didn't come much more squeaky clean than Nina and Frederik but not so apparently, despite being Danish aristocracy. I just Googled them, and it seems they eventually split up, Frederik went off to live in Indonesia, got involved with Australian drug gangs and was shot dead by a rival gang in 1990. Talk about childhood's end!

Wow

I'd completely forgotten that one.
All sorts of dormant memories surfaced during that.

Thanks for that Shane 8)

another one from Bert.



Music made for valves; feel good tune, massive sound stage
wonderful sound quality. Decca FFSS at its best.

Love that trademark twangy bassline
