The Other Side of Frodo

WP_20160305_001

Comet – Frodo Der Held des Rings

Cometen Zauber, the b-side of this famous twelve, is well known but the flip is certainly worth knowing too. Even for haters of everything-Lord-of-the-Rings (such as me).

Snake King

snake

Synopsis – Snake King

Synopsis – Romantic Ballad

One for those nights when the only people in the house are headbangers in cross necklaces and denim wests, mixing up “dramatic” and “utterly fucking hideous”. Rough but still danceable. The second track Romantic Ballad is a quite accomplished pulse groove. The record is Estonian.

Ugler i mosen

gnags

Gnags – Ugler i mosen

Funny enough i’ve discovered this record through the Stockholm based dj, Johan Ressle. And even funnier was i couldn’t connect the language when i first heard it. I was sure it was some weird swedish record. To my big surprise it wasn’t. It was from my own small kingdom Denmark. A Danish record sung in Danish. And not by some secret 70s rock band. No, it’s by one of the most famous 70s and 80s danish pop bands, Gnags. And to be honest, a band i really disliked. Another fine example of why you shouldn’t be judgemental when searching for good tracks. Gnags just moved up the latter in my musical perception.
The title Ugler i mosen (Owls in the swamp) is a danish figure of speech of something being fishy.

Once past the final gate to madness this is what will hopefully greet me – the Sound and the Vision.

“Kismet” has already been presented here as part of a classic mix by Oki but the sleeve has not been displayed. So here goes, better late than never.

Peter Moesser’s Music – Red River Story

This has a wholesome, clean cowboy feel to it. Here they are riding under the vast clear skies of Texas, arriving to spend the night in a farmhouse with panoramic views of the surrounding peaks.

POLISH FEVER

 

 

 

 

Poznanska Orkiestra

Those concerned with orchestral music are as a rule of the opinion that the process of maturing takes in the case of a big orchestra usually at least a few years of systematic work. But sometimes it is not so and an early success the newly-founded group has achieved, the excellent notices on its concerts upset all pre-conceived theories. This was precisely the case with the Entertainment Orchestra of Polish Radio and Television in Poznań, whose development proved very dynamic and spontaneous indeed.

It made its first recordings early in 1977. Being the youngest orchestra in this country, made up of freshly qualified graduates of Polish higher schools of music, it found itself, only after a few months of activities, on the two major festival platforms of Opole and Sopot. From the very start their enthusiasm and ambition prevailed over their lack of experience and their whole repertoire consisted of pieces written by the Young Poznań composers: Zbigniew Górny, Stanislaw Bartosik, Krzesimir Debski, Bogdan Jarmolowicz, Piotr Kaluzny and Janusz Piqtkokski.

Their cooperation with this big ochestral group provides them with the possibility of many-sided practice, as they can arrange, conduct and record their own pieces. Tens of their compositions and orchestral recordings have also been bought by foreign music publishers and record companies in the FRG, Great Britain and USA.

Now, three years after its foundation, the Orchestra is well-known to radio listeners and television viewers both at home and abroad. They owe this popularity to their recordings of around 300 pieces, their appearances in numerous radio and television programmes, with the most popular among them The Music of the Small Screen, as well as their three cassettes released by the Wifon company. One of these cassettes was done in cooperation with the British company London Weekend Television.

The style of the Orchestra is a resultant of the tastes and tendencies of its group of composers. That is why its repertoire is also diverse. You can find in it, along with disco and funky rhythms, numbers typical of jazz big bands, as well as arrangements of pop and classical music standards. But what is common to all its recordings is a modern approach to arrangement, wide range of instruments, precision in playing and a wish to achieve a distinctive sound of their own. In the realization of these qualities the orchestra is helped by the sound engineers, Ryszard Gloger and Zenon Wolinski.

The Orchestra’s appearances at the Intervision festivals jointly with such celebrities as Gary Brooker, The Temptations, Linda Lewis, Drupi, Dream Express has proved the Poznań group’s ability to reproduce the best qualities of their studio recordings before audiences as well.

This record début is an attempt to recapitulate synthetically both the creative and performing capacity of this very young but already mature Orchestra.” (From the sleeve notes of Poznańska Orkiestra Rozrywkowa PR I TV  LP, Polskie Nagrania Muza, 1978).

 

What else i have to say? Nothing except that i am falling in love with Polish disco.

Giancarlo Chiaramello – Aida

Maximalist interpretation. Verdi would certainly approve. The work is from 1977, by the person behind the Naples Pop Dimensions album.

Igor Savin i Orkestar Stanka Selaka – Folk Sinteza

Driving at 120 bpm and the fashionistas on the floor move freely. What next? Can’t kill the groove with the amazingly trippy Folk Sinteza. It mixes beautifully with about anything alike.
