Playlist, 23 November 2008

The Show Yesterday saw the 40th anniversary of the release of "The Beatles" (aka The White Album). Our London correspondent Jeff suggested we take the opportunity to play a selection of cover versions of tracks from this classic double album. So we did! In addition to that, we'll have a few tracks from a great new compilation of music from the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, and a preview of a new release on the wonderful DC Recordings label. The Music 1. The Les Reed Piano - On The Scene (The Easy Project - 20 Loungecore Favourites, 1963) 2. Tony Osborne - John & Paul (Gypsy Creams & Ginger Nuts: Sounds That Swept The Supermarkets, 2007) 3. Baba Yaga - Back in the USSR (v/a - La Musique De Paris Derniere 2, 1999) 4. The Link Quartet - Glass Onion (Italian Playboys, 2004) 5. Enoch Light - O-Bla-Di, O-Bla-Da (Spaced Out, 1969) 6. Charlie Byrd - While My Guitar Gently Weeps (Aquarius) At this point we took a break from our White Album tribute to play a couple of tracks from this great compilation of music from the BBC Radiophonic Workshop: 7. Peter Howell - Merry-Go-Round (The BBC Radiophonic Workshop - A Retrospective, 2008) 8. Paddy Kingsland - The Changes (Suite) (The BBC Radiophonic Workshop - A Retrospective, 2008) And we followed that with some classic Thai pop, for no reason whatsoever: 9. Kabuan Garn Yor Yod Yung Yong - Gang Geng Nai Krai Lab (Look Whose Underwear is Showing) (v/a - Thai Pop Spectacular 1960s-1980s, 2007) And then we returned to the White Album briefly for a wonderfully bizarre "version" of Piggies by a gentleman I would like to know more about: 10. R.A.M. Pietsch - Piggies (Exotic Beatles Vol 2 (1999) / Norwegian Wood (1988)) Keeping things electronic, we then played a brand new track on the DC Recordings label: 11. Arcadion - Arc (Ghost Feeder EP, 2008) And then we returned to our White Album birthday celebrations: 12. Lena Horne & Gabor Szabo - Rocky Raccoon (Lena & Gabor, 1969) 13. Ramsey Lewis - Mother Nature's Son (Mother Nature's Son, 1968) 14. Henhouse Prowlers - Helter Skelter (Henhouse Prowlers, 2007) Next up a track from the Android Sisters who were apparently characters on a mid-80s radio series I'd frankly never heard of called Ruby: The Adventures of a Galactic Gumshoe: 15. The Android Sisters - Down On The Electronic Farm (Best of The Android Sisters, 1984) Followed by another track from this great new compilation of recordings by the BBC Radiophonic Workshop on Mute Records: 16. Delia Derbyshire - Dance From "Noah" (Stereo Mix) (The BBC Radiophonic Workshop - A Retrospective, 2008) And then back to the White Album: 17. The Brothers Four - Revolution (Golden Throats 4: Celebrities Butcher Songs Of The Beatles, 1997) 18. Ella Fitzgerald - Savoy Truffle (v/a - Glass Onion: Songs of The Beatles, 1969) 19. Marty Gold - Good Night (Moog Plays the Beatles) The News
