various: refined lard a trunk records sampler

AVAILABLE 10.4.12  Thirty rare and fabulous cues celebrating the last year or so of Trunk Records activity: music from 1945 to last month, artists including Basil Kirchin, Terry Thomas, some hip jazz people, some rare film music, children, a doctor, an announcement from a train buffet car and a letter to a porn star. What else do you want, eh? Recently, Jonny Trunk was talking to Rough Trade records. They were asking if Trunk had any copies of the Now We Are Ten sampler in stock. The answer was no, so Jonny decided to put together a more recent sampler. So here it is, 30 cues all from the recent 12 months of Trunk Records activity, but many of the cues here have only been released digitally. They cover a wide range of musical styles from experimental to classical, from exotic to bizarre. Also in the mix are some intriguing spoken-word numbers, a bit of strange folk and a few cues that have never been released before. Sleeve notes include an excuse that the album has not been properly mastered as the Trunk mastering man is away on holiday. This would explain why overall it sounds a bit like an old mix tape with fluctuating sound, but the music is quite superb and what more could you wish for such a bargain price. Running Time: about 79 mins, or 1.2 hours.
