Just noticed many of the links have mysteriously been pulled, have reposted the ones I'm aware of. I had to use blogger's spam filter to control the huge flood of rubbish in the comments & this seems to have removed nearly all of the real comments and many of the original links... go figure.
If u need a repost & the file is still hosted I'll repost the link. Ta Kindly.

Orchester Frank Pleyer - Topless (1969)
Hippo 41 002

Hugely flamboyant, bombastic jazzy "kitsch"  on the fly-by-night Hippo label - arrangements hint at Quincy Jones, Dankworth, Riddle, KPM etc. Hammond & horns tightly fired out by a swaggering but uncredited orchestra, drums are provided however by the inimitable Charly Antolini. Very Groovy...
