Product Description

For volume 10 in our Mood Mosaic series, exploring the non traditional outlets for cool sounds of the 60 s and 70 s, we pay homage to the record label spawned from Associated Rediffusion TV. We ve been used to compilations being released from the great productions libraries such as KPM and Chappells, whose music graced many a TV soundtrack and advertising soundbed. Our focus this time is on a production source that began life as Reditune in 1954, supplying the piped music for places new to the postwar world such as supermarkets and airports, with loads of easy tunes on a looped cartridge system with a playing time of up to 4 hours. By the 60 s a fair proportion of the music supplied consisted of cheesy re-recorded versions of the hits of the day made palatable to the housewife's ear as she pushed the trolley round Fine Fair of a Friday. Business was booming and in 1968 a record label arm was formed as a further outlet for the music being produced in-house called Rediffusion International Music. A good many young arrangers and session players were cutting their teeth on these sessions, further contributing cracking original tunes. Names that have become legend in loungecore circles such as Harry Stoneham, Pete Moore, Alan Moorhouse, Tony Osborne. Tracks from these albums (and there were many), 187 between 1968 and 1974) have found their way onto various compilations, and vinyl singles for club play down the years. This is the first album compilation however solely focussing on the Rediffusion catalogue and story. With a sleeve essay by the people behind the Licorice Soul label and the excellent Vinyl Vulture web site (recently responsible for the lauded Working Man s Soul compilation) Gypsy Creams and Ginger Nuts is a tasty package indeed. Volume ten in the Mood Mosaic series

I bought this as a sort of stocking filler for a mate this Christmas - they never got it. It's mine now.
it's what she would have wanted.
Great album.

Gypsy Creams & Ginger Nuts is yet another superb release from RPM who along with fellow Cherry Red Subsidaries 'El' & 'Rev-Ola' continue their love affair with the 60's & 70's. Gypsy Creams is # 10 in their Mood Mosaic Series (not to be confused with Partner's In Stone series)which has furnished our place of sounds with retrospectives of Mark Wirtz, Alan Hawkshaw & Brian Benett. Rediffusion, as well as being a library label, released 187 'cheap as chip' albums - readers of a certain vintage might recognize or indeed own 'Sounds Like Soul', 'Exciting Sounds Of Tomorrow' or 'Lennon & McCartney Go Latin'. Fans of Library & Lounge will need no introduction to Harry Stoneham, Vic Flick (Yes 007's riffmeister), Pete Moore & Alan Moorhouse who contribute the bulk of the comp's 25 grooves. For old hands a few tracks have been comped before notably Pete Moore's 'Cat Walk' which btw appeared on one of Partner's Mood Mosaic. Everything here is deliciously groovy or funky or both - hammond heavy, brasstastic & begging for a dancefloor of mini-skirted Emma Peels to play for. The 'Brek' never worked for me but with 'the Redifunk of Rediffusion' in my ears I'm walking to work in a Redi glow.

This retro CD is really cool and you will like it 5 Feb. 2015
By Von Lars - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This retro CD is really cool and you will like it. Lots of go-go 1960's INSTRUMENTAL songs with that kitschy mod beat. This used to be the songs you'd hear in some hip department stores back in the day. Funk, jazz, keyboards, brass and a little bit of everything. I'm glad I bought it for my music collection of that very cool but by-gone era. Let's bring it back!
