The Chinatown Philharmonic - Anthology of Dutch December Folklore 1: Klaas Komt (1990, NL, folk) 
Thursday, November 15, 2007, 11:28 PM - Music, - NL, Nederlands
Het gaat weer op kerst aan, merk ik aan de clicks op kerstposts van vorig jaar. Maar het moet nog Sinterklaas worden!
Heeft u kinderen? Eigen schuld. Maar om het nog enigszins draaglijk te houden: pak ze de cd-tjes van de diverse kinderkoren af, en geef hen de zelfgebrand exemplaar van The Chinatown Philharmonic, ook wel genaamd Korzorkest, ervoor in de plaats.
Met Marcel Cuypers (Snake Charming, City & Eastern, De Dopegezinde Gemeente) op klarinet en reeds ingekleurde tekeningen van Meinsje de Paauw.



Veel meer kun je er niet van maken.

The Assembled Multitude (1970, US, muzak) 
Sunday, November 11, 2007, 08:29 PM - Music, - US, English
Why this lp is made is a mystery to me. Tom Sellers had a hit with Overture from Tommy. And here he covers in the same way more pop tunes with his Assembled Multitude. Wanted to sell his own two songs included on the album? Then the choise of the other titles is somewhat strange: not really middle of the road, but the way he treats them is.
I love the sound of the trombones. And you can't ruin I Want You (She's So Heavy), not even the Beatles themselves, nor George Benson could do that.
Rhino (who else) sells this record, but only in Windows Media Audio format. ???
Why the &^%$ in WMA?



Side one:
1 Overture from "Tommy" (A Rock Opera) (Peter Townshend) [2:27]
2 Woodstock (Joni Mitchell) [2:14]
3 Where the Woodbine Twineth (Tom Sellers) [2:36]
4 Ohio (Neil Young) [2:07]
5 Singalong Junk (Paul McCartney) [1:46]
6 MacArthur Park (Jim Webb) [3:32]

Side two:
1 The Princess and the Soldier (Tony Hazzard) [2:31]
2 Twenty Four Hours from Tulsa (Burt Bacharach - Hal David) [2:31]
3 While My Guitar Gently Sleeps (George Harrison) [4:08]
4 Mr. Peppercorn (Tom Sellers) [2:29]
5 I Want You (She's So Heavy) (John Lennon - Paul McCartney) [4:19]

Morton Subotnick - The Wild Bull (1968, US, electronic) 
Sunday, October 28, 2007, 10:58 PM - Music, - US, English
This Piece was named after a Sumerian poem (c 1700 BC).
Morton Subotnick always used the Buchla synthesizer as his electronic instrument. Don Buchla was the west coast counterpart of the east coast Bob Moog. His synthesizers didn't have real keyboards, they were made for producing electronic sounds, not melodies.



1 Part 1 [12:56]
2 Part 2 [14:58]

Ryuichi Sakamoto featuring Thomas Dolby - Field Work (1985, JP/UK, electronic) 
Thursday, October 25, 2007, 11:04 PM - Music, - JP, - UK, English
Quite a catchy song done by Ryuichi Sakamoto in cooperation with Thomas Dolby.
The back side contains fifteen minutes of out of sync / random synth loops: Ryuichi's machines solo. It is used in the Field Work clip as background music at the beginning and the end.



1 Field Work [6:00]
2 Exhibition [15:29]
