The Ray Conniff HI-FI Companion

What a cover – love the totally full-on colour of this print – everything is just right – and the look she gives – man you would never really guess that this is a smulchy double-LP of orchestral-chorus compositions that (according to the sleeve-notes) “recreate the essance of popular music” – well at leastthat must have been the case circa-1950 …

Does not really matter what is inside – when the sleeve is so damn nice however ..!

And just take a look at old Ray on the back – total dude (“one of the foremost conductor-arranges of our time, dynamic …”  – there you have it …

7 inchers

Los 3 Sundamericanos – 4 track EP (Belter 51.862)


Lets face it – EVERYTHING is completely correct about this 1967 babe of a disc – picked it up in Sue Ryder (Yeovil) only this afternoon – for a cool 50 pence – the cover initially grabbed me (obviously) – on the left the obligatory (perhaps) all in green supa-cool-babe struts out – on the far right – a dude a who could easily be a member of either Kraftwerk or Sparks stands ever so wax-like .. the guy in the middle sort of spoils the mood – but hey – chances are he is the musical-director ? And the label – BELTER – has there ever been a more enticing tag to be associated with ?

Getting it home has resulted in a shuffling mess of a household – all under the assumption they can sort of hold together some sort of passable latin shuffle (WE CAN NOT) …

Watch – and hunt out a 7 inch for yourself …..
