Jan Corduwener And His Ballroom-Orchestra ‎– Dancing Time No. 6

Thanks again to Al Gates of Perth, West Australia for this mini gem!

A 10" album from the early 1960s, it does not specify a date, it is a pleasant listen and another nice reminder of a different era!

I hope you enjoy it and please comment, with your name, if you do!

Everything Is Beautiful - Jack Hawkins Orchestra & Singers (1973)


Here you are, as promised, an old blog favourite, a new rip from a better condition copy, found at a local record fair!

Lots of fun from start to finish, it is a reissue of an earlier LP called Psychedelic 70′s on the Plexium label, an album I have never found out there, but I have found this one twice!

According to internet write ups from the original LP, it was recorded in 1970 live at the Locarno Ballroom in Blackpool!

It is the only place to find '30-60-90' as featured in the classic movie 'Get Carter'. Other highlights are the organ filled freakbeat 'Billy's Bag', funky covers of 'Son Of Hickory Holler's Tramp' and 'Dancin' In The Street'.

I hope you enjoy it and please comment if you do!
