I managed to slip in my morning swim (yes dear, I DID manage to get out of bed this morning) and now here I am again sitting at my desk in Ground Zero of Corporate Hell.
Let the good times roll; commencing with “Operation: Block Out Bullshit” with the crazy ‘Mindbender‘ album by Stringtronics.
The album was originally released back in 1972 by Peer International Library Limited and has since remained as one of the most sought after library LP, with original copies fetching up to $900 US on eBay.
So, yeah, thank you YouTube (click HERE).
It’s funky, it’s jazzy, and it totally tripped the fuck out…hence my decision to categorize it among my Like WOW, man! albums. Basically, it features an astonishing dynamic six-track suite, written and conducted by the versatile virtuoso Barry Forgie. The album also gives stunning ethno-lounge music from such famous French composers Nino Nardini and Roger Roger.
You’re all down with your popular French composers, right?
Of course you are.
The album really is a “Must listen” Holy Grail for lovers of electric harpsichord, bongo, balalaika, guitar bass, electric piano, conga, sitar guitar, violin, cello, and electronic effects (among others) or, maybe, you just like music like I do.
Either way, it’s a fun listen to begin the day here.
