Resonance & Peppers - OK Chicago





This is a funky down home double LP set with fat grooves and moog lines. This was originally shared by Sounds of Champaigne but the link has gone to the great electronic home in the sky.

I've re-upped it for a request and I thought I'd post it here for anyone who wants it. Some surface noise but it all adds to the gritty down home style of the music.

Here's some more for those who can't get enough. link

Teen Beat






There is a request for Sandy Nelson's Teen Beat. Not sure if it was the track or album but I don't have the album so here is the track along with 29 other must have instrumentals. Its by Ace Records so you know its good.

Here's the best compilation of Sandy's stuff I could find in fact the only one. His stuff isn't easy to come by as I found when I looked for some more recent compilations. This is superbly recorded and mastered by Ace Records albeit at only 128k but it still sounds pretty impressive.

I can hear echos of big band drumming in Sandy's work and he's ably assisted by such studio luminaries as Richie Podolar and Plas Johnson amongst others. No hits like Teen Beat on this but everyone's got those anyway, just more interesting and obscure stuff you caint find anywhere else folks.
