Strawberryletter 23  performed by Shuggie Otis  1974
Recommended by Pal [profile]

Absolutely stunning track. If you like music at all you must have this.

from Inspiration Information, available on CD



  02 Oct 03 ·tinks: it is a great song, even if it was in a cereal commercial. and i think i like the brothers johnson's hit cover of it just as much as the original.
  15 Mar 04 ·olli: hey, don't forget aht uh mi hed. it's one of the two absolutely fantastic songs on the album. too bad his comeback flopped, i think the reissue of inpiration information was too hyped, those who were expecting "THE LOST GENIUS OF SOUL" were disappointed... still, i think his work is pretty interesting. it´s worth checking out some of the recordings made by his father johnny otis, too. pretty good stuff.
An Angel Is Love  performed by The Bob Crewe Generation Orchestra  1968
Recommended by masayo [profile]

The song I have been eager to get since I saw a movie "Barbarella" about 6 years ago. Finally I got the soundtrack CD. I do love the theme tune, Barbarella, too, but this somehow makes me feel "America", the place I have been longing for.
What mekes me feel so? Bob Crewe's sexy and gorgeous vocal? Cool horn and brass arrangements? widely spreading atomosphere? Everything is attracting reminding me of the scene where Pygar is flying after getting his new wings!

from Barbarella Original Soundtrack, available on CD (Harkit Records HRKCD 8004)



  23 Oct 02 ·n-jeff: Its hard to pick just one track off an LP thats this good. It took me ten years to track down my copy, and I had to pay full collectors price for it, but it was worth every penny. By the way, I don't think thats Bob singing, is it? He sings on one of his other LP's and its not too, er, memorable.
  24 Oct 02 ·masayo: According to the liner notes, "Bob Crew was persuaded by producer Dino de Laurentiis to sing on the wonderful end cue, 'An Angel is Love'." But I haven't listened to his other songs, so I can't say it's definitely his voice, though...
  24 Oct 02 ·n-jeff: Liner notes, blimey. Top song even so.
  19 Oct 03 ·heinmukk: truly great song. but i have to say, that i like the theme tune more. but it's maybe because i only listen to it while watching the intro with jane fonda undressing. best intro scene of a movie ever! and jane is supersexy, isn't she?! candy!!
  11 Mar 04 ·skooba: Does anyone know where could download mp3s of the Babarella soundtrack? Any other recomendations welcome.
  11 Mar 04 ·delicado: It's in print on Harkit Records. Here's one of many places you can buy it: http://www.moviegrooves.com/shop/barbarella.htm.
  12 Mar 04 ·olli: probably my favourite soundtrack ever. has to agree with heinmukk though, the title tune is better. the version in the actual movie is a bit different from the soundtrack version, probably worth ripping from the dvd if you can get your hands on it. I also love the track "fight in flight", it probably has one of the coolest combos of funk guitars and string arrangements there is.... there´s a rerelease of the album with some bonus tracks by the young lovers out, (some pretty standard easy listening cover versions of existing tracks, nice if you're a completist though.) dont remember wich label it´s on though.
Bat Macumba  performed by Os Mutantes  1968
Recommended by tinks [profile]

Nothing can truly prepare you for your first listen to Os Mutantes. All the hype in the world can only pique your interest...of all the countless reviews I've read, none have ever captured the essence of the band, and I'm not about to attempt it here. Any song from their first album could be my choice here...the psychotic carnie music of "Panis et Circensis", the drugged-out doo-wop of "Baby", the Ray Davies-informed songcraft of "Senhor F" or the Donovan meets Alistair Crowley creepiness of "Trem Fantasma". So I chose this, their best-known freakout. Go find out for yourself.

from Os Mutantes, available on CD (Omplatten)




  14 Mar 04 ·olli: this is great! i love panis et circensis...heard it a couple of years ago on norwegian radio, but i didn´t find out what the song was called until now... by chance i just found out today that gil gilberto has licenced a lot of his work under the creative commons law... that means we're free to sample and build upon it!
sexy girls  performed by gert wilden  196?
Recommended by olli [profile]

great young girl "lala" vocals, catchy downtempo bassline. some fairly standard sax playing. originally from a series of german "educational" porn films from the sixties, and it´s pretty easy to tell. no moaning though. pretty similar to the more relaxed efforts of peter thomas, this is one good piece of horny sixties kitch.
how come porn music was so much better back then?


available on CD - schulmädchen report (crippled dick hot wax)




  12 Mar 04 ·olli: hmm. that was supposed to read: available on the cd "a very special album" on emperor norton. there´s also a cover by the danish band pornorama. it doesn't add much to the track though, except better recording technology and a dodgier sax line..
Ah melody  performed by Serge Gainsbourg  1970
Recommended by delicado [profile]

A slow number from Gainsbourg’s classic concept album, ‘Ah melody’ opens with that picked acoustic guitar sound which the group Air have now imitated and made one of their trademark sounds. The arrangement is very bare, with the guitar accompanied by just a vocal, bass, and a spikey, funky drum beat. Later in this short track, strings and Bacharach-style horns slip in and out of the mix, before everything stops abruptly. It’s a great track from what I find otherwise to be a slightly disappointing album.

from Histoire de Melody Nelson, available on CD (Philips)




  09 Dec 01 ·e: ah delicado....
  03 Jan 02 ·Mike: Wonderful track; absolutely magic, and second only to "Manon" in Gainsbourg's output for me. In the context of the album, it's a kind of foil to the more vigourous remainder, an all-too-short lyrical interlude.
  05 Sep 02 ·Liv: Stellar. "Histoire de Melody Nelson" is one of THE best concept records of all time..period.(But you don't have to understand French to appreciate this wicked album..) The lush string arrangements, interweaving deep&funky bass, Gainsborough's sleazily "seductive" voice:sometimes whispering,sometimes "singing"..all adds to the perfection. I will always treasure this album.. ("Ah!Melody" is one of the "lighter" songs from the album as the overall atmosphere of the album is darker,creepier:a feeling of perversion, death & doomed love..) One of his best. Pure magic.
  12 Mar 04 ·olli: got to love that. one of the definite highlights in his amazingly diverse output for me.
