A little comp to accompany this foody time of year's festivities! Mainly made from vinyl and cassette rips. Some Soul-Funk hits such as the amazing "Whatcha See Is Whatcha Get" by the Dramatics (this song opens the fantastic "Wattstax" film); a few instrumentals including 2 mad Cumbias by Ecuadorian composer Polibio Mayorga (thanks Yu Sato!) and John Barry's single "A Man Alone" from another great film, "The Ipcress File"; a few gems of Turkish Pop, some 60's girls, a bit of Forro... Bob's your uncle!

va -- Diamonds and Popcorn (Graham's selection 2015)


A new selection from vinyls and friends' recommendations.
In this comp you'll find a couple of tracks taken from the cult Elektro Dschungel album "Kebab Träume", recorded in Germany in the late 80's as a youth project. Also featured, bits from Goraguer's majestic soundtrack to "J'irai cracher sur vos tombes" adapted from Boris Vian's famous novel. "Diamonds" by 6-string bassist Jet Harris is probably the first - and coolest - bass-&-drums-led track in the history of Pop music! Mauritian singer Jean-Claude Gaspard sings about dreaming of riding different horses in"Sega Souval", a unique piece in the Sega genre... enjoy.

Thanks to Dem, Benny, Fabio, Winnie, Kouakou, Hava, Sebastian, Watt.

Franz Reichelt's Death Jump 4th Feb 1912


Saddest film ever.

"I want to try the experiment myself and without trickery, as I intend to prove the worth of my invention."

"You are going to see how my seventy-two kilos and my parachute will give your arguments the most decisive of denials."
