A cracking collection of oddities, with some truly beautiful stuff - Kes soundtrack excerpt, The Vernon Elliot and the Douglas Wood track in particular. Really delightful. Unfortunately Jonny has seen fit, nay, hilarious to include some rather puerile stuff about porn. Porn, you know, it's hilarious innit? This is a real pity because it means a lot of people who enjoy music with their kids, or older people, or well anyone except sniggering schoolboys, will be really put off. And this material won't get the interest it should. I know Danny Baker thinks it's funny, but he'd not always right you know.

A nice collection of long forgotten library music, theme tunes, off kilter jazz, ad jingles and musical porn, salvaged, in the main, from the archives by Jonny Trunk, who contributes a couple of tunes himself. The secret lies in how it is put together so that all these diverse ditties fit together seamlessly. Very enjoyable!

This is a must for anyone who shares a love for the obscure and hard to find sounds from the sixties and seventies. Ranging from obscure horror film soundtracks (Blood On Satans Claw) to the delightful sounds from the Clangers. Much praise as well must go to John Camerons theme to Kes which is such a beatiful piece of music.

Trunk Records have been around for a while now (What's that you say? Ten years? How do you know that?) releasing very quirky and obscure soundtracks, advertisements and stuff which is generally pigeon-holed as 'off the wall'. This compilation is well worth the money because it's less than a fiver and the tracks are OK, but not something that will bear repeated listening.

I would recommend you investigate their website, however, and also the 'Dirty Fan Male' album is hilarious.

I don't understand what mr trunk was trying to prove with this one, the 'funny' tracks don't really fit with the rest of the album. The puerile school boy tracks laughing at girls' knickers etc- makes the whole thing seem quite tacky and embarrassing which is a shame as there are some beautiful pieces of music here which do not deserve to be so under appreciated in the 1st place. I will still give it 3 stars as there is alot of great music on here, i also love the artwork for these trunk releases. This one goes well with Fuzzy Felt Folk

...without any real unifying theme. In a way, the scattergun approach actually works rather well. Some of the music - much of it sourced from TV - is delightfully obscure, but often rather beautiful. Some of the stuff is just throwaway crap.

Personally, I reckon Trunk's more recent "Refined Lard" compilation is much better.

Samplers are by definition rather patchy affairs and this is no exception. However, if you're going to buy it for one track alone, it'll be for the opener "I Start Counting" (by Basil Kirchin, sung by a young female stand-in, called Lindsey Moore I believe) which is just one of the loveliest tracks I've ever heard. Nuff said.

This nostalgia sampler contains 21 Tracks and not 22 as stated on the cover. The CD has 15 Instrumentals and 5 Vocal with 1 Advert track on Timex Watches. You will either hate this CD or Love it to bits.
The title should have been `Now we are Weird`, when you listen to it, you will find is not the general run of middle of the road music, just pure TV - Media Library Music, and know dou`t you will never hear these tracks anywhere else other then on this PAINFUL disc. All tracks are slow (BPM) and if you do buy a copy, you will have CD that you can talk about and share with your friends for many weeks. Then give it away to a chairty shop.
WARNING: Adult Track on 16, NOT for Air Play or younger listeners. Ruined the compilation of this disc along with Track 20.

Now We Are Ten: a Trunk Records Samplerfair enough i didnt know much about the album before i brought it and beleive me i wish i had now. i found it by typing in delia derbyshire in the music search. looking at information about the album i thought it would be full of bizarre bbc raphiophonic sounds and its not at all, apart from track 5 which is delia derbyshire's psychadelian waltz (from the album the tomorrow people) its mostly all ACOUSTIC GUITAR folky 70's prog rock type stuff and yeah i like king crimson and yes but the music on this album is rubbish and i regret waisting my money on it now. if you wanna hear a decent strange electronic bbc radiophonic type album then pick up forbidden planets: music from the pioneers of electronic sound. amazon should make the tracks listenable by samples
