I have to confess that i'm not a specialist of Enoch Light, this is my unique LP of him. But i saw last years a lot of blogs sharing his work. Of course, i downloaded all...And i discovered that i was more hooked by The Brass Menagerie Ensemble...Until this day, i've never seen this LP on other blogs or "sharewares" places.

I found this LP, like many others on Sounds Of Champaign, on a flea market. I was fascinated by the artwork, coincidence or not, as a primary Bauhaus fan (the band) then the movment. Josef Albers taught at the famous Bauhaus school from 1923 until 1933 ( year of the end of anything in germany ) and designed the sleeve. But be back on Enoch & the Light Brigade (not for a war) just for pure Command sounds...And it was a sort of "command" from my friend MarcoDisco, he is a specialist as well, thanks man for every sound ! So, this is just to complete Tam Tam & Melodie's work with my very few contribution. Sorry guys about my bad artwork scans, yeah! my first gatefold sleeve, bad enough but a lot to read about some technical appreciations to record good music. Never Enough from Light !!!! So hard to try a kind of writed english humor, with my native german/french mind ! Just enjoy this original vinyl...without to be numbered...

Same here. Many thanks. I've found some really good lounge / groove albums on blogs lately - with brass. This is another one :)

Thanks a lot! I still think I like the cover a little more than the great music! ;)
