Music Box 29/05/2021

We start this Saturday with a real treat. The Danish National Symphony Orchestra live, and their version of the Ennio Morricone music for the Sergio Leone spaghetti western The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly (1966). Superb.
vitlana Nianio and Oleksandr Yurchenko are musicians with a long history in the still-mysterious Kiev Underground, and in 1999 they released the highly idiosyncratic, experimental and bizarre album Znayesh Yak? Rozkazhy (Koka Records 1999). From it here's the sublimely inspired Untitled 1. I urge you to check out this album, it really is an alternative. Buy here.
Phil Ochs was a singer-songwriter active on the U.S. folk protest scene throughout the 60s, known for his astonishing voice. This is the lovely Changes, from his third LP Phil Ochs In Concert (Elektra 1966). Sadly, after a knife attack that damaged his vocal cords, alcoholism, writers block, and bi-polar disorder combined to lead him to commit suicide in 1976. He was only 35.
Next up, a real rarity. Putney Bridge was a British pop group of the early 70s who released four singles in their brief career. This is their second, What's It All About (Chapter 1 7" 1970).
We finish with  a brace from Vanessa Peters (website), a singer-songwriter from Texas who's released 15 albums in the last two decades. So we conclude with Love Story, and then Moving Day, from her third album, Little Films (Little Sandwich Music 2006), recorded with a  band Ice Cream On Mondays. Buy here. Until next week ...
