SDS All-Stars - Electone Fortissimo

Well, it appears that I'm a part-time blogger these days. I'm finding it harder to find the time to rip and restore the vinyl, scan the artwork and post it all on the net. Ah well, I guess it will be all the more welcome when it finally arrives.

If you downloaded the King records post form a couple of months ago, you will have already heard the SDS All-Stars. Their seven electrone organs, plus the obligatory pianos, marimbas, percussion etc combine to make a quintessential lounge sound.

"...A special studio, approximately the sound of a small telivision studio was used with the instruments arranged for the latest stereophonic recording techniques. The bass notes from two of the electronic organs were reproduced through a specially designed speaker system weighing over a ton. Higher frequencies were reproduced through a bank of cabinets housing multi-speakers placed left and right of centre stage. The piano, percusion, guitars, vibraphone etc. were spread fanwise at the rear of the stage..."
