Beware ! You have to be informed that this record is for some people inaudible. But for freaks, here are the last whispers of a dying vinyl ! Because i bought it on a flea market. The sound quality is not so good, you will hear a lot of « burning » noises. The worst ever posted on Sounds Of Champaign, but this is a pure Ero-exotica record ! If you really like it, then you will forget the crackles… Just listen to « Laure » and then you will find that Air or another present french pop groups are not far away…A lot of gems to hear, between exotica, erotica and easy-listening. Now is winter, and this help to maintain a tropical temperature ! A reissue of this LP where higly appreciated !

So, I'm late about my new vinyl post. As i said, a lot to do. But i'm working on it since yesterday. I just have to transform all tracks into mp3 format, scan the covers and send the full record on RS tonight. It's snowing here since this morning, a real winter atmosphere. But the next record should resolves any temperature problems ! just a clue : some tracks played by "Les Vibrations". Wait & See...

So maybe it’s not the right place to ask about a personnal request, because Sounds Of Champaign is especially made for " past vinyls " and assorted. But, since years, i like other kinds of music. I grew up, as teenager, in the 80’s. And i was allways listening to 4AD, Beggars Banquet or Factory records…So, today, i’m happy to have a lot of originals records from that time. Few years later, i became a huge fan of a band called " Seefeel ". Have all records from them, half on original LP’s, half on original CD’s…except Ch-Vox (on Rephlex records). I bought " Quique ", an double-LP, in 1993 and was suddenly addicted. Especially by the track called " filter dub ". If anybody has " Quique " as CD, and the track " filter dub (low pass remix) " version. Let me know ! It’s so hard to find today…This would be my only request to Santa Claus this year ! ! Thanks to all

Here are 2 singles from Nino Ferrer, a hit maker hating the music business during the 60's. Influenced by R'n'B, his work was oriented like a self-made man. An outsider inside the music industry...

Like Dr. Jekyll & Mister Hyde (not the Serge Gainsbourg song) he made music for people, but was, usually, unsatisfied by his own production. Two faces...The first one with "Le Telefon" a pure sixties gem, and the other one with"Le Sud", a pure 70's arrengment and a big hit. "Le Telefon" EP came from my Grand Father, this is the reason that the sound is better to hear. But, i found "Le Sud" on a flea market, so popular, that you can hear fire crackles on the way !

I recommand you the full LP called NINO & RADIAH - Le Sud, recorded in 1973 at the Trident Studio in England. One of his best sound...Unfortunatly he commited suicide in August 1998...

Yep, just wait enough to enjoy some new stuff. I'm very busy last days. A lot to do outside my web activity, cause Christmas is calling to me... So i think i'll take a break soon, each day there is something new to discover all around the blogs and other places. I dont want to be a web addict!
But in the next 48 hours, two originals french 7" singles will be avalaible on Sounds Of Champaign. A work, at this moment, easier for me than to digitalize a double-LP ! And before the end of this week, a new LP will be avalaible too...

Never miss a Jimmy Smith record, especially this one, full of jazz grooves gems, where Oliver Nelson's arrangements supports Jimmy Smith's smooth organ. Recorded in 1968 on Verve, this is a luxury melting pot of a crossover between Lalo Schifrin and Burt Bacharach alchemies. You'll find terrific bass loops and lush orchestrations all along these 9 tracks. This LP oppened with a brilliant cover of the "mission impossible" theme, followed by be-bops incursions, the mainstream is jazz and the background groove. This is a must Have !

If anyone has an answer about suddenly diseappering of some blogs, replaced sometimes, by pseudo-porn lookalike blogs. Maybe they want informations, informations, informations...
Sharks on the web, it could be possible ? Did you think that they like some sounds & music ?
Who are they ? number One ? I prefer to be number 6, just to say, we are to be carefull about that kind of perversity...
