This Is Roberto Delgado [1970]

Very nice 10 track sampler of Roberto Delgado's 60s work, featuring the latin sounds of Spanish Eyes, El Paloma, Rhumba Tamba, Taboo, and 6 other great tracks.

[From the sleeve notes]

''The heat of the tropical sun, the excitement of the carnival, all the fire of Latin America, this is the music of Roberto Delgado. Audiences in the sophisticated continental nightclubs have thrilled to the music of Roberto Delgado, many record buyers in this country have for long known the excitement of his records in fabulous stereo, now, to bring his music to a wider audience we bring you a selection of some of the best of Roberto Delgado so that you too may thrill to the magic of far-away nights in exotic places. Come, hear, be conquered by the scintillating sound of Roberto Delgado.''

Organ Sounds In Super Stereo - Alan Hawkshaw Plays The Philicorda [1972]

A nice & easy treat from the greatest British session organist.

Very rare and hard to find, this LP is a mixture of standards and 60s & 70s pop classics played by the Hawk along with his session legend friends Brian Bennett, Jim Lawless, Chris Spedding, Tony Carr and Danny Richmond.

Mariella is a Hawkshaw original and is a definite highlight, as are the versions of Spinning Wheel and My Cherie Amour.

There are also some great liner notes from the Hawk himself!

I hope you enjoy it!

Party Dances with Sydney Thompson [1968]

This one, along with the All-Time Party hits LP by Joe Loss were the ones I used to listen to most at my grandmother's house when I was a small child.

I did have a copy of this, but it was in such poor condition I could not offer you a listen of it.

A typical party LP of its time, it sounds great, is still enjoyable to listen to, and I hope you enjoy it!
