Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band

Now for something crazy and different !....I have seen this L/P in the record shops for years but not took any notice of it and I have not heard of their work at all...I should have !!....A great "Parody" L/P... doing all kind of funny things with the songs..have a listen and you will get what I mean !...It's Mad Mad Mad !!..But Good

 Gorilla is the debut album by the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band, originally released by Liberty Records, LBL 83056, in 1967.The album includes "Jazz, (Delicious Hot, Disgusting Cold)" which savagely parodied their early "trad" jazz roots and featured some of the most deliberately inept jazz playing ever recorded—the record company only allowed two hours of studio time per track, so it was completed in a single take to allow for the far more complex "The Intro and the Outro". The band deliberately swapped instruments to increase the degree of incompetence.

2. Now That Youv'e Gone

Kurt Edelhagen

It's still cloudy and cold in Belguim so will have to wrap up when I go out for some "Choc's" music from the sunny land of Italy might brighten the night up and give a nice warm glow inside !! relax and enjoy !!

Re- Post
 A few re-posts now before we brave the snow and cold of the "New York" skyline and a wet Belguim !! from the posts above !!

  This is the music from a late 70's Television Series....Even if you haven't seen the Series the music stands on its own.... The tracks are catchy and beautiful and there's a whistle tune that if you download it you will be whistling all day !!!.....If any of you out there get a chance to see this great T/V Series or get the DVD (which I have) then go for it you wont be disappointed....

P.S. This is definatly one of the best "Mood Music" that I have in my collection and I hope that most of you out there will have a listen and give an opinion!! I said above the music stands on its own so you don't realy have to see the "Series" to appreciate it...BUT it does help !!!

Oliver.WRC..320 Kbps

 This is another WRC recording of a musical which I thought was like the other WRC releases of "Musicals" made up with artists picked by the record company BUT after going on "Google" to find out if the "Stephan Marriott" was the singer from the group "The Small Faces"and a Pop singer in his own right I came across this L/P cover....So it is a West End Cast recording ...Its not the original first cast but its a good one well worth a listen too !

The Card..320 Kbps

 A while ago in fact a couple of years ago a friend of mine was getting rid of most of his L/P's making way for a collection of CD's....most of them were from Broadway and London shows I said I would have them hence the occasional ones from "Shows" some obscure and some well known....So here goes one "The Card"...Don't think it was a roaring success in the "West End" it only lasted for 130 Performances....but it's nice to hear Millicent Martin !!!

Della Reese

Crash ! Bang ! Wallop ! Wooooooooop's !! From the USA to Belguim in a matter of seconds !! need for a Time Machine !...just cruise along with the air-waves !! and listen to what Bob has to offer !!

4. Its Magic

Johnny Hallyday

24 tracks from the late "French Rocker !...some of the tracks will be instantly recognisable... I should think that this is a cross section of his if you like the Rocker element in your music give this a whirl !!

18. Noir c'est noir

Erroll Garner

Comment below said "Not had any piano for a while" well here's another one !!..just like the  British saying about "Buses" !!...You know those Big Red (Usually) public transport things !!

3. Stompin' At The Savoy

Peter Nero

Not had any piano for a while so let's put that right with this one ! always the brilliant playing of Peter Nero comes up trumps again....BUT how do you say the L/P's title !! would it be "Soshimilco" or maybe "Zokimilco"

10. Canadian Sunset

Mireille Mathieu

That Disco beat seems to arrive on here once in a while !! and the lass with the rrrrrrolling "R's" does a good job of the first track !...I think that this one might be some of Mireille's early recording's.....Thanks Bob for this one and all the ones above!!
