LOUNGE CENTRAL: THE ILLUSTRATED LONDON NOISE!

LOUNGE CENTRAL: THE ILLUSTRATED LONDON NOISE!

ANOTHER VERY COOL LOUNGE-INFUSED DOWNLOAD FROM MR. CRAIG AT HIS FUNKY FROLIC BLOG . . . CHECK IT OUT . . .

This is Brian Bennett circa 1969 doing some non library music related work and the results are very nice. The general mood is lounge/easy with a bit of go go groove thrown in for good measure, highlights include the flute and organ infused "I Heard It Through The Grapevine", the fab "Ticket To Ride" and the rollicking "Soul Mission". I would hazard a guess that the excellent organ playing is care of his pal Alan Hawkshaw. There is some very nice drumming and strings included on many of the tracks and the whole collection maintains a high level of quality throughout. A very rewarding listen.
