As per the request from Lord Summerisle I have tracked down a copy of this 1979 Bruton release. There are a range of genres featured on the album from jazz / funk to disco and pop. Trevor Bastow composed the first 13 tracks and the highlights include the upbeat and very danceable "Spotlight", "Happy Heart" which evokes images of cruising through the English countryside in a sportscar and the aptly named "Full Frontal Funk" with it's 70's cop show vibe. The two Brian Bennett numbers are typically assured and the record finishes with some nice pop from Dave Gold. If you are familiar with late 70's Brutons then you'll have a fair idea what to expect, it's pretty lightweight but there is plenty of fun to be had aswell. Please note - "Let's Get Success" has some technical issues. Credit goes to the Vintage Library Emporium for the original upload.

Is the re-uploaded/clean rip that Stack provided of Track 20 still available? The link is dead.

Mr. Craig said...

Dammit, no I don't think I ever got around to downloading it myself. Sorry, really dropped the ball on that one. The album has also been posted at Maiorov Simpleton's Library (check my Fav Blogs list). He might have posted the same rip, or maybe not. It could be worth asking him to check the quality of his rip, you might be in luck. I tried to find a contact for Stack but couldn't I'm afraid. Once again, sorry.

Drat! Well, in the meantime, on my blog, I've started to put up some of the Bruton collections myself. I'll look this one up!
