The Steps - Non Stop Soul 1969

The Steps where from Singapore or Malaysia or someplace and here they play instrumental medleys of 60s hits by The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Wilson Pickett, 1910 Fruitgum Company and others. Total 60s cheese

Tilt Soundtrack

This is the music for some forgotten movie about pinball called "Tilt" that starred a young Brooke Shields. Never seen it, might one day

Album features the vocal stylings of Bill Wray, Randy Bishop and Marty Gwinn along with arrangements and instrumental stuff by Lee Holdridge. Yeah I never heard of them either. Late 70s cheese

Cricket and stand up comedy don't necessarily mix but here we have former England spearhead Freddie Trueman going at it. Sadly tthe rude words are bleeped, but if you understand the broad Yorkshire accent, the laws of cricket and are over 40 you may get a giggle

American Girls - American Girls

the 80s provided a number of highly successful all girl bands that dominated the charts. Bananarama, the Bengles, The go go's. American Girls sadly wasn't one. Though this album is still pretty good. Sounds a bit like a grown up Debbie Gibson with a touch of Prince influence

tracks: american girls, Androgynous, one last prayer, stay with me, out on my own, Goodbye Amen, blind ambition, take the night, sharkskin suit, Pratice What You Preach
