Name That Tune
« on: September 18, 2020, 12:28:29 PM »
Hello All

https://gofile.io/d/ST5Jao

I'm new here. I've just started discovering production music and It's amazing. I've vary rarely posted in forums/biards before so please excuse my naivety. I joined up because I can see a aealth of knowledge of members on here. Hopefully I'll be able to help too as time goes by. I would like some help with identifying some songs I believe may possibly be Bruton or De Wolfe but not sure.
There are 11 tracks. I.know for certain they were produced before 1981. I'm thinking between 1976-1980 if that's any help.
I'm pretty certain they're not Kpm.

Sorry for the voices over the music.I had to record them from a DVD.

Thank you in advance for your help. It's driving me nuts not knowing who the artists and song are. 99.9% certain it's production music.

Thank you in advance. :)

The only one I recognized was Voice Recording 2, which is the song The Mad Mechanic, by Paul Zaza, from the Parry Music Library.

Hope I have helped you!

No. 10 is Cooking Along by Irving Martin from Bruton BRH 2 'Heavy Rock'

No. 11 is Funko by Brian Dee and Irving Martin from the same LP (and also the b-side of the 7" of the theme from Return Of The Saint!)

I'm intrigued as to where these clips come from - as I heard a woman with an Australian accent talking about 'the department', is it Prisoner?

Hi Lord Thames

Many thanks for these! Much appreciated.
Yes, you're right on the money - Vera from Prisoner talking about the department! I'm yet to identify that one.
The songs you helped me with were used in Cop Shop.
Love those two shows and their mysterious songs  :D

003 is very familiar, but I couldn't find.

004 is the vocal version of Quango & Sparky - Never Say Forever



005 is from the same album: Quango (& Sparky) - I Like What You Got

Sanson, thank you!

I've manged to find the album and post some interesting trivia to go with it.
These are from Sonoton 121 Album Disco by Quongo & Sparky.
A studio disco/dance act created in 1977 by producers/song writers Sammy Burdson and John Fiddy. John Fiddy went under the alias Jean Claude Madonne for this project. Quango & Sparky are best known for the music they contributed to the 1981 mystery/comedy adult film "A Girl's Best Friend"
Some of these tracks are used in Marilyn Chambers Movies apparently.  And to think I heard them on PG rated Aussie show Cop Shop!

My original  query for no. 1 is Track title  " Hear come the Drum"
Query No. 6 is track title is "The Disco rock"

Just found out
Query track 7 is from Parry Mysic Library PML 02 Album Disco Pop. Track is "Ready or Not"
Kudos and shout out to Retronic for me discovering his upload on here. :)


On the weekend I'll upload and give links to these albums.
Have uploaded under the thread for Library vinyl and CD rips.

Everyone has helped so I'd like to share some happiness too! Some smooth grooves on them both.

Query no. 3 track - I'm sure I have the track now somewhere. I'll have to find and ID the Album and Title and Artist  info if I can find and provide upload and links if I can find.

Cheers for your help.  :)

Hi Zach
Awesome!
I was browsing Sonoton for John Fiddy albums and was looking for a beautiful piece by
John Fiddy & Norman Candler - "Tender feeling (take 2)" which led me to youtube.
More research led to more avenues as the net does and and yes, I heard in stereo on youtube at the same time which led me to searching for the album.
Top Album.
Great youtube upload of yours too! Small world!
Gives more people another avenue to stumble across such great sounds. Thank you! :)

Just getting into the tunes and loving them. Yes, and So many to explore! I notice that a lot of Artists go under various Pseudonyms. Why is that?

i don't know, some legal reasons i guess, i'm sure someone here has a better answer.

glad you found the tunes, couldn't help cause i clicked on the link and it just gave me a bandwidth exceeded message. 'Spread Your Wings' is a great one indeed, lots of great disco on it.

oh the link is working now again.

#3 is not 'Disco Hustle'. it's killing me cause i know what it is, i'm humming the first part of the song in my head, but can't for the life of me remember what it is. Porn_Library probably knows the name.

Just getting into the tunes and loving them. Yes, and So many to explore! I notice that a lot of Artists go under various Pseudonyms. Why is that?

The reason they did that was usually for publishing reasons or contractual reasons. For instance, Walter Murphy has a ton of aliases throughout the entire 70's and 80's history of Valentino, sometimes even going as a woman LOL. This was done because he had major label deals with Private Stock Records and later MCA records for a short time which restricted him from doing more than a certain amount of "for hire" work elsewhere. So this was done to make unlimited work for library.

This example is most likely the case for most library composers and their aliases. To lift recording restrictions and get away with it without getting sued.
