New Sounds for the Jet-Set (groovy cheesy listening compilation)

It's been a long time since I've posted one of my own compilations, so now's the time to reverse that:

New Sounds for the Jet-Set is a compilation of groovy cheesy listening tunes from the 60's and 70's similar in vein to the Sound Gallery and In-Flight Entertainment compilations, but with more of a psychedelic edge.

These tunes were mainly all compiled from albums I'd found at the Spiral blog (now defunct), and I'll be surprised if many of these tunes have been compiled before. So, without further ado, pour yourself a Cinzano Bianco, loosen your cravat, and sit back and enjoy New Sounds for the Jet-Set.

N.B. The order of the track listing has been corrected.

1) Enoch Light and The Light Brigade – I Feel The Earth Move
2) Manzanilla – Without Reason Or Rhyme
3) Chico Arnez – Oh Well
4) Tony Mansell Singers – Scarborough Fair
5) Don Sebesky – Dance The Night Away
6) Button-Down Brass – Hurdy Gurdy Man
7) The New World – New World Symphony
8) Tartaglia – Within You Without You
9) The Border Brass – Aquarius/Let The Sunshine In
10) 101 Strings – I’m A Man
11) The In-Keepers – Matthew And Son
12) Electronic Concept Orchestra – Rock Me
13) Don Sebesky – Reflectivity
14) Morgana King – Tomorrow Never Knows
15) Baker Street Philharmonic – Daydream
16) Ted Heath And His Music – In The Year 2525
17) The Harry Roche Constellation – Hawaii Five-0
18) Paraffin Jack Flash Limited – Freewheelin'
19) Franck Pourcel – Days Of Pearly Spencer
20) Hal Vincent at The Baldwin Organ – Heavy Spaceman
21) The Alan Tew Orchestra – I’m A Believer
22) Brian Bennett – I Heard It Through The Grapevine
23) Keith Mansfield – Soul Thing
24) Brian Bennett – Ticket To Ride
25) The Mike Sammes Singers – Summertime
26) Harold Smart – UFO
27) Tartaglia – A Day In The Life

Coldcut Solid Steel (1995?)

Thanks to Bobkin for this. Here's another chillout session broadcast by Coldcut on Kiss FM. There's very little chat - just head tunes, so as Matt Black likes to say:

"Lash yourself a large one together, hold on to your ears, let your feet do the talking"

If anyone has any information info about this session, such as tracklisting and broadcast date, it would be very much appreciated.

Plug your ears in here.

Hoi' Polloi

Thanks to Skeewiff for uploading this nice long lost sunshine pop album. Hoi Polloi only ever privately pressed 500 copies of this album back in 1972 making this album something of a hidden gem. You can find out more about the band here. I believe the original members of the group have since reissued it and you might be able to buy a copy here.

Don't be fooled by the album cover, this is a great album and can be listened to here. There was a glitch with Track 7, so that can be heard here.
