1976 CINEMATIC THEME CHEESENESS FROM DENMARK

O´HENRY ”TIVOLI” LP
A LITTLE ODD NUGGET FROM DENMARK.
O´HENRY WAS A MEMBER OF THE FAMOUS DANISH BEAT GROUP IN THE 60´S
”SIR HENRY AND HIS BUTLERS”
ON THE BACK OF THE COVER THIS LP HE WRITES THAT HE IS
INSPIRED BY JOHN BARRY AND ENNIO MORRICONE AND WHEN HE LISTENS
TO THIS RECORD HE CAN SURELY HEAR THAT THE COMPOSERS ABOVE
HAVE HAD A BIG INFLUENCE....(WHICH IS QUITE A STRETCH BUT NEVER THE LESS ONE CRUCIAL REASON FOR ME TO PICK THIS UP AT THE FLEEMARKET..)
THE STANDOUT TRACK FOR ME ON THIS LP IS ”PARTY´S OVER”.
MELANCHOLY WITH A KIND OF CINEMATIC FEEL TO IT.
EVEN WITH THE LINER NOTES IT WAS QUITE A SURPRISE FOR ME THAT
THIS ALBUM ACTUALLY HAD SOME QUALITY TO IT... ONE GREAT LITTLE TRACK AT LEAST

The Flirt - Mix 
something a little different (cheesier) than usual.....


















 
This mixtape is a little bit out of touch with what Dontfakethebreaks normally is about.
I have always picked up Danish 60s and 70s stuff that looked like it could contain something funky or odd – it could be samples, breaks or tunes to use for Dj-ing.
Recently I began listening through my Danish 80s disco/synth/boogie-looking records 
Listening through them - I must admit that I have picked up A LOT of misses...
The disco/boogie scene in Denmark was very small – at least when it come to releases.
The tunes in this mix is a little of everything.... (mostly cheeseness)
Not really a disco-mix but more like pop tunes that sounds like they intented a little more than just the normal pop-sound of the times, and flirts with influences from disco/boogie/synth/wave/cosmic.

I tried to include tunes that (as far as I know) still are relatively undiscovered or at least not very known ....and then again maybe there is a reason for them being lost in obscurity... 

Tunes are mostly from private releases, or on very small labels.

IT`S ODD, A "LITTLE" CHEESY BUT CHARMING - IN MY OPINION OF COURSE. 


ANYWAYS - GIVE IT A LISTEN AND BE DISGUSTED OR HUMORED....

A LITTLE MIX OF DANISH NUGGETS. 

WITH ALMOST 30.000 HITS ON THE BLOG, WE CELEBRATE
WITH A LITTLE MIXTAPE-PRESENTATION - ALL DANISH RECORDS...



Welcome to another round of Danish breaks and grooves - this time showcased in shape of a little mixtape. 

I have had the records lying around for a while - not having time to do a proper presentation with graphics and writing.

This time instead of writing and doing graphics I tried doing a little mixtape .... which actually turned out to be much more time consuming with the video and all... Well I hope you like it.   

The title is "Rødgrød med fløde" (an old school danish desert). - Foreigners often pronounce it like it is spelled below. Back in the days it was kind of the standard thing to make foreigners say - to get a cheap laugh.....

PROBABLY THE MOST 
------INSANE------ 
RECORD I HAVE EVER FOUND!!

MULATU ASTATKE 
ETHIOPIAN INSTRUMENTALS LP
ORIGINAL GREEK PRESSING ON AMHA AELP 10


A few weeks ago I found this amazing record. As I went through the crates at the spot I was quite disappointed as I found only 78s in those crates - but suddenly another crate was put on the ground right in front of me!!!.... And this record was first in line.... I could not believe my eyes - as I have heard stories about people travelling to Ethiopia in the seek for this record but turned back empty handed... Here I am  pulling up one of the hardest to find Afro records!!! with a AMHA paper bag for 45s inside too!!!!!
Mulatu is truely a legend. In the early 70s he made up his own "Ethio-jazz" style.
In the start 90s collectors became aware of these 70s releases and began searching for them.
Already then it was quite difficult to find any copies of his releases... and now a days...
FORGET ABOUT IT!!!
Many of his tracks has been comped reissued etc. With NAS and Damian Marley using a sample of "Yegele Tezeta" along with Mulatu began touring with the Heliocentrics in the late 2000s, people got a general awareness of his recordings - including me.
This release consists of instrumentals (as the title suggests) done in Mulatus recognizable Ethio-jazz style which is mix between funk, jazz and world music to put it short!!!

AS THIS IS AN ULTRA RARE RECORD - ACTUALLY A LITTLE TOO RARE FOR ME TO USE FOR DJ-ING OR JUST FOR PLAYING (BECAUSE I WOULD NOT RISK DAMAGING IT).

I WOULD BE WILLING TO LET IT GO IF I GOT THE RIGHT OFFER....
IF YOU ARE INTERESTED HERE IS A DESCRIPTION OF CONDITION AND PICS BELOW :

THE VINYL : 
IS IN NM CONDITION WITH JUST 2-3 VERY FAINT SCUFFS FROM SLEEVE. 
I GUESS THAT IT HAS HARDLY EVER BEEN PLAYED!!!
I HAVE DONE NO CLEANING OF THE RECORD AND IT PLAYS CLEAN AND CLEAR.
YOU CAN HEAR QUALITY ON THE FULL CLIPS I HAVE PROVIDED ABOVE. 
I HAVE UPLOADED MP3 IN THE HIGHEST QUALITY AND I HAVE DONE NO WORK ON THE SOUND. IT HAS BEEN RECORDED AND DIRECTLY SAVED AS MP3. 

THE COVER : 
IS IN VG CONDITION. AS YOU CAN SEE AT THE PHOTOS THERE ARE SOME TEARING AT OPENING ON FRONT AND BACK. BOTTOM EDGE HAS A 5CM SPLIT AT MIDDLE. 
OTHERWISE EDGES AND SPINE HAS VERY MINOR WEAR - A LITTLE SHELFWEAR WITH A LITTLE "WHITE" SHOWING. 
FRONT HAS A LITTLE TEARING AT MIDDLE BOTTOM, AT LOWER LEFT CORNER AND A TINY TEAR JUST BEFORE THE "E" IN ETHIOPIAN. 
BACK HAS A LITTLE LIGHT TEARING AT LOWER RIGHT CORNER. 

THE AMHA COMMERCIAL PAPER BAG
IS IN VG++ CONDITION WITH ONLY ONE SLIGHT FOLD AT MIDDLE AND A PIECE OF TAPE AT TOP. OTHERWISE
