A Syd Dale curiosity
« on: April 25, 2019, 11:00:57 AM »

As a big fan of Syd Dale and his Amphonic label (and his KPM stuff, of course) I'm always curious about other things he did. Here is a link to my rip of what can be considered Syd Dale's debut as a recording artist - a single from 1960 under the name Jack Good's Fat Noise (Jack Good was a British TV personality). Both sides says "Directed by Syd Dale", and both tunes are Dale originals. I have included some scans with pertinent info on Syd's early days, from the excellent book about KPM - "The Mood Modern" by Oliver Lomax. I like the music on this 45, it's noisy & brassy and quite cool.

So check out Jack Good's Fat Noise 45:

Some other music Syd Dale arranged and/or produced was recently reissued on CD:
