ALBERTO BALDAN – Alberto Baldan / TRUMAN THOMAS – Groovin’ [60’s Organ/Lounge Instros]

Alberto Baldan

 

Even more 60’s organ sounds at Surfadelic. Alberto Baldan is an italian musician and movie’s soundtrack composer and this is his rare ’64 debut slab. What you see on cover you’ll gonna get. Later on in 70’s he made some cool soundracks for exploatation flicks as ’74 ”L’amica Di Mia Madre” and ’76 ”Lingua d’Argento” but that’s another story.

Truman Thomas is American keyboardist who have collaborated with Jackie Wilson, Aretha Fanklin, Isley Brothers and King Curtis in 60’s and 70’s. This here is his sole ’67 lp with funky organ covers of R&B hits by Otis Redding, James Brown, Jackie Wilson, Ray Charles, Eddie Floyd, Wilson Pickett … Groovie… Dig!!!

THE GEORGE KING ORGAN SOUNDS / THE JOE CORNEY MULTI-ORGAN SOUND [60′ Lounge/Mod Jazz]

The George King Organ Sounds a

 

Cool rare organ-lounge/mod jazz lp on Studio one, UK library label, primarily consisting of music composed by German composers. Have no info on exact date of recording [supposed to be from 60’s] and know nothing about George King and Joe Corney, but album sounds fine enough for Surfadelic. You got ‘happy beat’, ‘swing waltz’, happy samba’, ‘medium beat’, ‘fox trot’, ‘fast swing’, ‘beat’ and ‘happy russian’ tempos, and tune entitled ”Gay Play” [don’t know what they mean, but it’s cool anyway]. Happy organ pop sounds in Super Panoramic Stereo, Dig !!!
