4.0 out of 5 stars A joyfull noise unto the obscure 8 Aug 2003
Format:Audio CD
And I thought I knew a lot of obscure tracks!!
Only a lifetime devoted to the unusual and strange on vinyl could enable Mr Votel to compile this mix album.
There's no track listing so perhaps these tracks are destined to remain anonymous - but I'd still love to know what some of them are.
If you liked DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist's Brainfreeze or David Holmes's Free Association mix then you'll love this - but be sure to bring your sense of humour.
There is some funk and soul - but also French yeye, garage sounding rockiness, Indian flavours, movie sountracks, folk and even something that sounds like Krautrock - but don't be put off!
At times it sounds like a soundtrack to a sixties swinging London film - if they'd invented turntablism and eclectic mixes in those days.
The sheer unlikely, joyous, juxtaposition of these tunes brings out something that I'm sure most would not pick up if these listen to these songs in isolation.
The mixing is a little cut and paste at times and seems to drift off in quality towards the end - but that's just a small criticism. There are apparently 75 tracks in 76 minutes so its no surprise if its a little raw - but that only adds to its carefree anything-goes nature.
As the number of corporate mixes seems to be on the increase and you can't move for generic computerized 'Ibiza' 'Beach' 'Misery of Sound' boring and unimaginative mixes this is a welcome breath of fresh air.
More please.

4.0 out of 5 stars An educational listening experience 25 July 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is the latest in the Stars On 33 series from the Fat City label/record store in Manchester. Andy Votel, boss of Twisted Nerve records follows on from Aim and Ralph Lawson with a mammoth lession in the wider world of everything funky and damn right weird. This CD has about 60 tracks mixed, cut and simply squeezed onto it which keeps the head nodding and the feet tapping due to Votel's tight beat mixing. Of course this mix has all the Brainfreeze type funky and soulful breaks, but also incorperates rock, folk, indian, prog rock, celtic weirdness and even an advert for a local Manchester curry house! There isn't a tracklisting and ideally this mix should be listened to all at once, but some parts do drag on, but apart from a few boring bits here and there this mix is up there with the DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist Brainfreeze and Product Placement mixes. So if you're after something different and a lession in worldwide head-nodding funkiness i'd suggest you buy this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't make them cry at all- in fact, they quite like it 25 Mar 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is very random, wonderful, addictive mix.. features everything from Kraftwerk, Captain Beefheart, Ennio Morricone to Serge Gainsbourgh.. the 'hurdy gurdy man' mix (3rd track) is probably one of my favorites.... not that the tracks can really fall neatly into songs, it more like 76 minutes of random music... and it's good.... you don't really know what to make of it first, but it gets better with each listen............. You won't regret buying it.......

If I'm not mistaken, this was not originally intended for commercial release due to the overwhelming clearance issues involved, but thankfully it's made its way to us. Andy Votel gives us an hour or so of a trip through the pop, film music, psych and funk (and so on) record bins of used record shops around the WORLD, mash-ups and snippets of over 60 rarities from the '60s through the much more recent past, from the well-known (serge gainsbourg, frank zappa, burt bacharach) to the obscure (Veinica Doble, Devil's Anvil). Much of this is instrumental but there is a healthy smattering of vocals sung in english, french, polish and who knows what else, familiar tunes rendered weird (hurdy gurdy man, have love will travel, scarborough fair, hey jude). Check out Votel's notes on all the samples/bits used:
[...] wow, amazon deleted the link i put in. well, it's out there on the net, find it, it's worth looking for.
This thing is a kitchy treat for the ADD set. Thanks B-Music!!
5.0 out of 5 stars First in a great series 26 Jun 2008
By Bill Your 'Free Form FM Print DJ - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is the first in a series of three mixes by Andy Votel, the others being Song in The Key Of Death and One Nation Under A Grave. These mix funk, exiotica and art rock. They are uniformily great, both in themselves and what they can teach you about digging DEEP into the crates. Well arranged and more exciting than any roller coaster you have ever been on. Picture, just for example, a song by Egg going into Serge Gainsbourg going into Ezra Mohawk, all on anphetamines.

I give this my highest reccommendation.
