I posted this album a long, long time ago already, found a perfect copy in Holland a few weeks ago....
This is such a great album, narrated by the lovely Miss Christobel Weerasinghe it covers gamelan music from Java and Bali, krontjong music, angklung music and some songs from Sumatera and Sulawesi... There's even a composition from Colin McPhee performed by the Eastman-Rochester Symphonic Orchestra. Most of the recordings are field recordings by Ruby Ornstein, ethno-musicologist and a member of the Department of Music, Queens College of the City University of New York and the sound quality is just amazing....

Going back to my early youth when this was on the radio all the time, Cinderella Rockefella, one of those songs that will stay in your head for days and days.....

So... When I was a young lad, about 15 years old I was sitting in a tram, in Rotterdam minding my own business.... Then a huge group of hard-core lesbian feminists entered the tram, there were about 30 or 40 of them, all dressed in dark purple and all with shaven heads, some of them looked like they could've had Andre The Giant for breakfast. And Brock Lesnar for dessert.... It was.... intimidating to say the least, kinda like a bunch of neo-nazi skinheads entering the place (a situation that I'm all too familiar with)....
The ladies making music and singing on this records seem somewhat nicer and I just know you've all been waiting anxiously for this, a whole record full with songs about sex, sexual orientation, masturbation, the horrors of having sex with men and the horrors of gymnastics in school and yes, even a song about having the mouth of a cervix!
The joy of it all!!!
Comes with a booklet with pictures and the songs written out that I scanned and included in this here download so you can build yourself a campfire and sing along!!!

This record came out in 1982 and in 2010 they got together again for a performance, all dressed in....purple.....

Picked this one up in Holland and I'm so happy to have it AGAIN!!! Bought this one when I was a young lad aged 16 or so and it's one of my all time favorite albums, got lost when I broke up with some ex girlfriend way back in the 90's.... Dreamy music from The Durutti Column, fantastic music from The Royal Family And The Poor, great live recordings from troubadour Kevin Hewick and Blurt at their very, very best.....
