THE TIME IS HERE!

Well here it is, the before and after pics of the Hut. I still have to put up the rest of my things and do a little more re-arranging.Though I'm glad the old Hut is no more, I still remember that it all started here.

RENOVATIONS GOING ON AT THE HUT.

Well folks I have the money to invest in the Hut itself. Right now it's a shabby computer room, but soon it will be an ultra cool lounge. I'll post some pics. when completed.

Monday, September 8, 2008

Dose anyone have the Time? Well I do and plenty of it!. Presenting the first and what will be many more installments of the Time Series 2000 record label. Starting out the first installment is the Seductive Strings by Siravo. I thought I'd get a little mellow at first, but I will hit hard with Cha Chas for Dancing by Hugo Montenegro next, guaranteed to be a real crowd pleaser!

FAR AWAY PLACES

Here's my next album by Enoch Light entitled Far Away Places. Rangeraver's Departure Lounge still has this album but no longer has a link to it, so I thought that I would post since it is new to me and new to some of you. If you are familiar with the arrangements of Enoch Light, you won't be surprised that he has featured percussions in this album. You may however, be surprised to see that he uses a harpsichord as a feature instrument. Because of its' lack of resonance, the harpsichord can be difficult to record. Having the talents of Billy Rowland at the harpsichord and the recording engineers of Command records, this challenge was met and surpassed all expectations. So please enjoy this unusual but fascinating arrangement.

DOC SEVERINSEN AND FRIENDS

Got another album by Doc Severinsen. It seem that I have some trouble with crackle on some of the higher frequencies. I'm thinking it's because this album was played so much by previous owners such as myself. None the less it's an album that you will enjoy all the same!

THE MAGIC ISLANDS REVISITED



By request here is The Magic Islands Revisited by Axel Stordahl. This album is truly what the cover says, magical! A great sound of the islands, almost reminiscent of Martin Denny at times. I chose not to chop side 1 & 2 of the album into their respective tracks due to the fact that there is no silence between each song. Each song is cleverly arranged to blend into the next, thus not disturbing the listener once he or she has enter the realm of total and complete relaxation.

HAWAIIAN SWING!!




This has to be a new record for me, two posts in one day. After posting Torch Songs for the Trumpet, I decided to get ahead a little and rip Hawaiian Swing. I could not believe the great quality of the record. Cleaning was effortless. I think that London Phase 4 Stereo is right up there with Command records. As for the music on the album, there is a little exotica, big band and percussion. A little something for everyone. This album has it all! So enjoy!

TORCH SONGS FOR THE TRUMPET




Well finally here it is! This was really a tough one as far as cleaning up. The appearance of the album was flawless. As for the sound, well let's just say that this was a typical Pickwick album as far as surface noise, if not worse that usual. Anyway, about the album, we're talking about Doc, so as anyone can guess, this is one album that you'll want to get. You won't be disappointed!

MORE BAGELS AND BONGOS




What can I say! It's More Bagels and Bongos! What more do you want!?
This is really a great album by the Irving Fields Trio.
These Yiddish favorites are greatly complimented by this fabulous trio with the use of Latin rhythms that keep the beat going. I'm sure you'll agree when you hear this album for yourself, that these Yiddish favorites are cleverly arranged and bring a whole new spin to the listening experience.

LET'S DANCE THE BOSSA NOVA!!


Today I bring to you, Let's Dance The Bossa Nova coupled with Big Band Bossa Nova. Although this album has quite a few scratches, I felt it worthy to be ripped. Also being recorded in stereo helps too. All in all the outcome of the rip is pretty good. So please enjoy this album along with its cousin Big Band Bossa Nova. Together they are two albums that really go together.
