First of all before we get to this record I have a couple of things to mention. Tomorrow or perhaps the next day I'm going to make a big announcement that will knock you off your chairs. Guaranteed. And if it doesn't please try a less stable chair to sit on. Like one of those with one leg people use to milk cows. So stay tuned for that one.
Secondly I have a bunch of requests from people for albums whose links have died that appeared on this site in the past. I'm begging anyone who might have the album already on their computers to use netkups or sendspace and upload it from their copies here below, I will wait a couple of days, then upload whatever is left to do. This is because it doesn't make sense to have more than one link available at a time, if that happens, the links will end much sooner than otherwise, with fewer downloads each time. Here are the requests so far:
Difference -- REUP DONE BELOW [A very controversial album to say the least, please don't read the comments that followed]
Varsog -- REUPPED BELOW
The Biz -- REUP DONE BELOW.
Prisma -- REUP DONE BELOW.
Noctett -- CONTRASTS REUPPED BELOW
FULL SCORE DONE BELOW
Bowl -- I don't even know what this is!!
Moonlight Edge REUP DONE BELOW
Natdamperen -- ST REUPPED BELOW, Boogieman now DONE BELOW
CRY FREEDOM Sunny day -- DONE BELOW
HOLDE FEE Malaga -- Posted here:
New Music in Quarter-Tones -- REUPPED BELOW
Now on to the music. When I was scrounging around online making sure Teo's discography had achieved completion I saw this item that wasn't listed (so far as I could tell) in my usual databases of discogs and rym. What would it be-- a major find, a hidden treasure, or one of those albums: 'there's a reason it's rare and unknown?'
Well of course you guys will be the judge, but in my opinion we are leaning towards the latter assessment. This is not like the 'Virus' OST at all, and it almost seems as though Teo was doing throwaway work here-- which is odd because he must have been at the height of his powers in the mid-seventies. Even the pop songs by Janis Ian and Judy Roberts have a bit of a throwaway feel to them. And especially annoying are the 'filler' tracks that just really detract from the whole, you'll understand what I mean when you hear them. (E.g. "Party party let's have a party" -- I mean, the title just makes you cringe before you even hear one note! and just to torture you guys, I left in the scratch that causes the song to repeat!! lol) Otherwise, there's some good modern music composition by Teo, including some atonal pieces, but this is not at all like even the Faces OST he did in the sixties.
I'm surprised I've never heard of the movie too because as I've mentioned here and there in the past I'm a huge fan of seventies and sixties cinema, I've said before that to me this period was the apogee of moviemaking as well, whether in the US, in Europe, etc. Maybe someone who has seen the movie can discuss it below.
So stay tuned as I said I will make a big announcement later this week...
And please help me with those requests!! It's a lot of work!
