Joe Loss Plays Your All-Time Party Hits (1971)






#2ND REPOST#

As requested by John, this LP is probably in every charity shop and flea market in the United Kingdom, but it is always entertaining and lots of fun!

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

A Tribute To Benny & The Duke - The Ray Davies Orchestra (1974)



#REPOST#

The fine and funky follow-up to I Believe In Music, this album sees Ray Davies taking the music of Big Band greats Duke Ellington and Benny Goodman, and giving it a thoroughly modern (for 1974) re-arranging. As the sleeve notes from Ray himself state, not to expect carbon copy arrangements!

On the sleeve is a list of all the players, which reads like a who's who of British session / Easy players, with names such as Alan Hawkshaw on keyboards, Alf Bigden on drums, Don Lusher on Trombone, Duncan Lamont on Sax & flute, Dennis Lopez on Latin Percussion.

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