A great companion to the first volume of music by John Baker issued by Trunk Records – as this set moves away from radio work, and features rare film music, electro jingles, commercials, and even a bit of jazz! The tunes are all wonderfully quirky, and filled with imagination – and often include some great electronics, done with weirdly whimsical styles that are somewhere between the work of Bruce Haack and Jon Appleton! Other tunes have some great horns too – arranged with an equally cool sort of feel, almost in the way that Raymond Scott used acoustic instruments when he wasn't working with electronics. Most tunes are short, which is a really great thing – because they kind of sneak in with a heavy sonic punch, and then quickly duck out before their special feature or gimmick has time to get boring. As with the first volume, this one features a huge array of music – 39 tracks in all, with titles that include "Get Happy", "Electri Twist MQ LP 1/
1", "Boy On A Bicycle", "Out Of Nowhere", "JB Dubs", "Omo & Giro Adverts", "Electro Weird MQ LP 19/
2", "Jazz Advert", "Brylcreem", "John Baker Goon Advert", and "Piano Strokes".
