Al Martino

A: Spanish Eyes
B: Melody Of Love
Hurrah! - I've been looking out for one of those, on the quiet, so that's 10p saved. Whyperion's images, being the earliest, should now have pride of place. :-)

Cotton Mill Boys

A: Cricklewood
B: Flop-Eared Mule
A slightly odd one - it appears to be a UK pressing of the Irish release on Target 7N.45059, with an adapted prefix. Shannon Records usually imported records from Ireland but they were responsible for a few UK pressings of selected issues around this time and I suspect this may have been one of them; the fonts have a very UK appearance. Country & Irish, in waltz time; a tongue-in-cheek song for once - while the singer gets transported he ends up in Cricklewood rather than Botany Bay. That said, the jaunty fiddle-led instrumental 'B' is more to my taste - pity it's so short.

Riggio

A: Everything's Burnin'
B: Still Warm
Shuffly electronica with snippets of radio / television pasted in. The snippets are from an American civil disturbance - 'You are either free or you are slaves', 'Mama it's judgement day', and so forth. The 'B' is more Kraftwerky.

Wat?

A: Gondola
B: Gondola (Instr.) (>>Venezia Mix)
Jaunty, chuggy Euro-pop. Towards the end there are bubbling sounds followed by a chorus of 'We all live in a yellow submarine', so presumably the gondola sank. The record came with some promotional material including a lyric sheet, so if any of you who speak German want to check what happened you can do so. Another sheet listed a few more Blind Man Music singles, some of which we haven't got on the site. The 'B' is actually a proper instrumental version, not just the 'A' side minus the vocals.

Apeanaut

A: Let Us Go

The Navigators [Brooklyn]

B: Goodbye
Echoey 'electro-Reggae', with lots of echo; the vocals and synthesizers swirl from one ear of your headphones to the other. The 'B' side is sparser and less adventurous. I would guess that this had a sleeve at some point, but by the time it ended up in a 'freebies' box at the Birmingham (UK) Record & Tape Exchange it was flying solo.
