I think you need to get back on track tomorrow !
Meanwhile, I'm so happy, I just discovered a new band :D
Wild stuff , now I know what Gary ( 'Barry' ) Moore was doing c.1971 , I will have to get the album :



The second part 'Unco-Up Showband Blues' reminds me of the Magic Bang in places.

Saw them at the Van Dike. Brilliant gig, but I have to say I don’t remember it that well after 48 years. Only time I ever saw a bass player break a string. Never realised it was Gary Moore though!

I love this compilation I bought 23 years ago on the recommendation of Ken Kessler. It is the happiest, grooviest, coolest cd produced for the Ultra Lounge series and, quite possibly, the most listened to CD in my collection. Sammy Davis Jr, Julie London, Peggy Lee, Dean Martin, Nat King Cole, Bobby Darin, Louis Prima, Sam Butera, a who’s who of swing and jive.

If you want to feel good about yourself and the world, want to listen to 'real' music and don't mind involuntaringly bopping around the room, then do yourself a favour and get this cd or stream it! Bobby Darin's "More" is meltingly gorgeous. Every song is fantastic!
And as for the sound quality....it’s Capitol Stereo from the 50s and 60s all the way...Nuff said!

Thanks for the tip Steve.

This is a scary one:

You’ll either love or hate this CD. I think it has some astounding arrangements. You have to suppress your instinct to cringe. :mrgreen:

Pop hits from the 60s given the easy listening treatment, again with fab Capitol sound quality.
Light My Fire by Helmut Zaccharias anyone?
Sunshine Superman by Mel Tormé?
Hello, I Love you by The Lettermen?
Maybe, I Am The Walrus/ A Day In The Life (Medley) by John Tartaglia may suit you?
Dayream Believer by Lord Sitar?

It gets dafter, the further you get through it.

There’s also a picture of my dad, taken in, taken in 1967 on the front cover. :D :lol:

That's such a beautiful recording, so much to like.

@ Cressy - Ooo. groovy. Possibly. Where might one possibly partake of a lug-ole's sampling of this?

London Grammar - Ah the guy with the big hair.

Sting - reminds me I am frequently threatening to put a Police compilation together.

The others - I have no response at this time
