Doc Severinsen and The Now Generation Brass - Doc Severinsen's Closet (1970, US, Big Band) 
Monday, October 31, 2011, 04:52 PM - Music, - US, English
I mainly bought this lp recently because it includes a big band version of The court of the Crimson King. The rest of this record is also not bad, big band wise.
It reminds me of the Quincy Jones lp Walking in Space: the music ranges from trippy to kitschy.
The recording contains covers of the Beatles and Beach Boys as well.
I wonder how it managed to escape from my attention for 40 years...

Side one:
1 The court of the Crimson King [7:31]
2 Bottleneck [3:14]
3 Surfer girl [2:44]
4 Give me just a little more time [2:57]

Side two:
1 Footprints of the giant [9:42]
2 Power to the people [2:55]
3 Abbey road medley [6:06]
