Stanley Black - France

More classic lounge from the master. Phase 4 sound, huge orchestra, hundreds of singing Mormons, and the quirky and inventive arrangements of M. Noir. I have also included an interview with Tony D'Amato, producer of the phase 4 series. D'Amato goes on record to state that our Stan was the most brilliant arranger he ever worked with. High praise, but I for one have to agree - Stan's the man...

Mr Snookles

Peter Ustinov - Babar The Elephant

Hi Folks. Well - you know how it is - nothing is certain in the ephemeral world of blogdom. It seems that I might get around to posting the odd curio on the site - I still find time to rip the odd speck of vinyl, so perhaps I will share a few things with you, gentle reader...

So, here we go.... First up, more spoken word. The golden tones of Peter Ustinov, the sparkling music of Francis Poulenc, and the delightful story of Babar the Elephant by Jean de Brunhoff - 'nuff said.
