Julian Bream – Rodrigo/Britten/Vivaldi

Julian Bream - Rodrigo Britten Vivaldi CB126 front

This seems like the appropriate time, as good as any other, to release a classical title. While listening to this I get the overwhelming urge to don green tights, a bejeweled cod piece and jump about with my flute or lute as the case may be. Your experience may vary.  Enjoy      CB

Charles Gerhardt and the National Philharmonic Orchestra – Spellbound The Classic Film Scores of Miklos Rozsa

Charles Gerhardt National Philharmonic Orchestra - Spellbound The Classic Film Scores of Miklos Rozsa CB125 front

 

During the seventies RCA, on the Red Seal label, issued the ‘Classic Film Scores’ series which presented a wide range of film scores from the golden age of motion pictures. These were all re-recordings by the National Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Charles Gerhardt. There were at least a dozen different titles in the series with six of those being available in quad.

The quadraphonic titles are ‘Citizen Kane: The Classic Film Scores of Bernard Herrmann’, ‘Sunset Boulevard: The Classic Film Scores of Franz Waxman’, ‘Casablanca: Classic Film Scores for Humphrey Bogart’, ‘Spellbound: The Classic Film Scores of Miklos Rozsa’, ‘Captain Blood: Classic Film Scores for Errol Flynn’ and ‘Lost Horizon: The Classic Film Scores of Dimitri Tiomkin’.

Released in 1975 ‘Spellbound’ was the tenth in the series. I do hope to be able to release all six quad titles in this series however it may be a challenge acquiring the lot.  Enjoy     CB

Tis the season to be jolly…….   With each holiday season it becomes a bit more difficult to locate quadraphonic Christmas music that has not been offered before. This past year the Captain was lucky enough to acquire this title which was originally released in 1974. It contains twelve yule time favorites and I hope it will add a little something to your holiday cheer.    Enjoy    CB

Jose Feliciano – Fireworks

Jose Feliciano - Fireworkss CB123 front

Released in 1970 ‘Fireworks’ stayed on the charts for twenty weeks and peaked at fifty-seven. This release contains five Lennon/McCartney songs with two of those being instrumentals. My track pick for this album is the Dale Hawkins tune ‘Susie-Q’ with the most recognized cover probably being the Creedence Clearwater Revival version on their 1970 album ‘Cosmo’s Factory’.  Enjoy    CB

Arlo Guthrie – Last of the Brooklyn Cowboys

Arlo Guthrie – Last of The Brooklyn Cowboys CB122 front

 

I can’t imagine Thanksgiving without Arlo Guthrie and a visit to Alice’s Restaurant. Either the song, movie or both. If you ever sat on the Group W bench then you know what I mean. ‘Last of The Brooklyn Cowboys’ was released in 1973 and is the only quadraphonic album from Arlo. It is an exceptional release with a large group of contributing artist and one of the best quad mixes I can think of. Happy Thanksgiving everyone and remember the city dump is closed today.   Enjoy    CB

Tammy Wynette and George Jones – We Go Together

Tammy Wynette and George Jones - We Go Together CB120 front

Duet from the latin duo means two. So with that thought in mind I present for your listening pleasure a second duet to complete the pair. Released in 1971 on Epic records ‘We Go Together’ was the first duet album by country music artists George Jones and Tammy Wynette who were married at the time. The album rose to number three on the country albums chart. My track pick on this record is ‘Living on Easy Street’ with the title track ‘We Go Together’ coming in a strong second place.    Enjoy    CB

Porter Wagoner & Dolly Parton – We Found It

Porter Wagoner Dolly Parton - We Found It CB119 front

Recorded at RCA Studio B in Nashville and released in 1973 ‘We Found It’ was the ninth duet album by this country music duo.  It peaked at number twenty on the US country album chart and the single ‘We Found It’ reached number thirty on the country singles chart.

Have very fond memories growing up watching this hit syndicated television show every week. Who can forget Speck Rhodes whom Dolly referred to as her little Leprechaun. My track pick for this album is  ‘Satan’s River’.  This is a quick record clocking in at just over twenty-four minutes. This Q8 cartridge was provided by Simon A from MoonStarStudios for our listening pleasure and we thank him for his generosity.   Enjoy     CB

Gordon Lightfoot – Sundown

Gordon Lightfoot - Sundown CB118 front

 

Released in 1974 on Reprise records this was Gordon Lightfoot’s tenth album and his most successful commercially . It reached number one in the US on the pop chart. The album marked the pinnacle of Lightfoot’s acoustic folk-country blend before he embarked on an increased use of electronic instruments. Two singles charted from the album, the title track ‘Sundown’ reached number one and ‘Carefree Highway’ peaked at number ten. Nick De Caro adds accordion, horns, orchestration, piano and strings to several tracks while Jim Gordon adds percussion and drums.  Enjoy     CB
