V.A. – ROLLING STONES WORKS, DERAM JPN CD songs The Stones gave away, mostly to UK 60’S artists
The Alan Bown CD single is a soundtrack, sounding very 1967. Probably the world’s only CD of it was originated in
I very much had “vinyl fever” by 2002, so to re-buy the Atoll “Tertio” album was a natural for me – it’s still my favorite Atoll album, and I recently got a new CD version of it! (Paper sleeve CD – still no bonus tracks!)
The Balanescu Quartet “East Meets West” is them playing Y.M.O. cover versions, in a 20th century music style. Again, likely originated in
Never had much luck finding CD’s by the French band Lilicub – I believe “Zoom” is album #3. Pop music.
The Joe Meek “I Hear A New World” vinyl re-production is amazing – looks great, sounds great. It’s one of the most “out” records ever made – and the Japanese did a beautiful job on it.
Always on the lookout for new Michel Polnareff product – and
Roudoudou is a French electronica band, and rather good. I’ve only ever seen their CD’s for sale when I visit
Still looking for a CD of this Scarlet’s Well album. I spotted the vinyl for it in
I immediately snapped up this Irmin Schmidt 12” when I saw it – it was inexpensive, and from an album that I really like.
I couldn’t find Pussyfoot label collections in
Finally, “Rolling Stones Works” is a wonderful CD of songs they gave away – or produced – best cut here: an instrumental track by Ian Stewart. Fantastic!
