CD


4.80 13

Here's a pretty groovy set of tunes – and all scored at a thrift store in California by the compilers! The album's filled with tunes pulled from obscure albums of instrumental music from Southeast Asia, circa late 60s/early 70s – mod and swinging instrumentals that are going for a serious western pop kind of sound. There's lots of different styles running through the mix – from guitar or organ-based instrumentals, to soundtrack-type numbers with a John Barry or Morricone feel, to other tracks that mix together Latin rhythms and other groovy 60s touches. There's not a lot known about most of the artists on the set – but that also is one of the things that makes it pretty darn compelling! Titles include "Themes From James Bond" by The Stylers, "For A Few Dollars More" by Man Chau Po Orchestra, "Tabu" by The Sound Of Silverstones, "Indecipherable" by The Polar Five, "Funny Funny A Go Go" by The Brothers Hawk, "Chella-La" by The Stylers, and "Enjoy Yourself" by The Stylers.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
