Non Stop Pepsi Party - Denny Wright & The Hustlers [1974]

MFP 50098

After posting the Sparkling Sounds LP, and mentioning Denny Wright's Pepsi LP, I thought it might be good to rip and post that Pepsi LP, so here it is!

It was one of the first LPs I found when I first started looking round the charity shops, some years ago, but I have seen it again since, several times, the one ripped here being the one in the best condition.

It is around 54 minutes in length, and top quality from start to finish! Featuring the Shout About Pepsi track, as featured on the first Sound Gallery album, here it appears as part of a medley with Tequila and La Bamba.

Other highlights include fine versions of I Can See Clearly Now, Something, Ob-la-di, Ob-la-da, very smooth sounding covers of Without You,Love Is Blue, and Sounds of Silence, with a nice rock 'n' roll medley to finish the album.

Every track is a winner, the album is one of my personal favourites, the track I post as preview, Roll Over Beethoven never fails to have me jiving round the room!

I hope you enjoy it and please leave a comment!

Sparkling Sounds... Just the Way You Want To Hear Them [1974]

MFP 50191

I found this album of vocal covers in one of my local charity shops, looked at the sleeve and found it was from Denny Wright and Anton Kwiatkowski, and bought it, hoping for something hopefully similar and as good as Wright's own Non-Stop Pepsi Party or Chico Arnez's Non-Stop Dance Party.

It turned out to be more like one from the Hot Hits collection or similar soundalike album. I must say it is very good though, and although the band and singers are trying to sound like the originals, there turns out to be more of their own personality to the sound than that!

It is well worth a listen, and so I hope you enjoy it and leave a comment!

Screen Action / Crime Busters - The Power Pack Orchestra [1986]

Here, especially for darnall42, is a fantastic collection of 35 great 80s TV and film [but mostly TV] themes played by the Power Pack ''Orchestra'', mostly synth and drum machine again, but it must be said that it is very of its time.

There are 25 tracks on the original CD ''Screen Action'', but I also have an LP called ''Crime Busters'', which also contains some of the tracks from ''Screen Action'', so I have added the tracks that were not featured on that to this download.

Highlights aplenty, but I can't quite believe the way they did the ''Hart To Hart'' theme!

I hope you enjoy it and please leave a comment!

I ripped this CD some time ago, and cannot find it at the moment to scan the covers from it, so I'm afraid this will have to do for now!

Essential Easy Listening - Various Artists [1991]

This is a magnificent collection of classic Easy tracks by some of the finest Easy acts.

I understand it was originally released in the 70s as a double LP, but some weeks ago I found a CD issue from 1991 in the local Red Cross shop.

I'm sure you will love it!
