Well folks, this might be a bit of a shot in the dark? although I was pleasantly surprised to find the ‘Country Folk’ playlist went down so well…..
Anyway, collecting music over the years- scouring the boot sales, charity shops etc… I found I ended up with a lovely little assortment of Orchestra’s. Some I consciously tracked down- like a lot a the British Big Band stuff, the American R’nB/jive an swing,
the Sun Ra, Moondog an a few other little oddities, but mostly- especially those from other corners of the world, I’ve bumped into by accident/a bit a good? fortune.
So here’s a small selection of oddness to share wid ya friends or listen to when you find yourself all alone, sittin on a park bench. thanx indeed, the slippery1.
