Can anyone help me identify some SBH releases, please?
« on: November 09, 2020, 10:10:34 AM »
Hi everyone.

I'm trying to tag the album Soho Lounge Heat Vol. 1 & I can't find which SBH releases some of the tracks are from.

The sleeve notes say...

"Original 70s' lounge funk,
digitally re-mastered from
the Boosey & Hawkes SBH series"

... So I haven't looked beyond the SBH series, but Discogs (& wider web searches) have nothing for the following tracks, all by Dennis Farnon:

The Trackers
Acapulco Connection
Coast Road North
Border Incident
Taco Brazil
Shanghai Caper
Night Driver

I couldn't find The Baltic Caper either, but found this on line...

https://2nxmusic.bandcamp.com/track/my-boosey-weighs-a-ton

... Which credits the Baltic Caper as being from SBH 3034. But the tracks on that album are just listed as a numbered series of "Pop/Jazz Themes".

So, I'm not sure when this piece got its name & whether this is the same case with the other tracks I've listed. (In other words, they may be on Discogs, but not with these track names.)

All the missing tracks seem to lead to this release:

https://www.discogs.com/Various-Soho-Hipsters-1969-1977/release/2771568

Which credits Boosey & Cavendish. As I'm not sure of the relationship between those two, I figure maybe Cavendish gave the un-named tracks names, maybe when they licensed them from B&H or something.

In any case, any pointers would be greatly appreciated. :)

Check SBH 3052.  3034 are alternate versions of those tracks or tracks from some other Boosey.  At work so canít check but can do later.

Blimey! Thanks so much for the speedy responses & I think that's job done, My Pal Doug! :)

I'm bound to have the same problem with volume 2 when I come to do it, so watch this space!

I made a couple of revised cover images based off of Retro's photos in the "Getting' a little Boosey" thread, in case they're of interest.

From memory there are tracks on the second one from the Cavendish CAV 1-10 red series. Thereís a thread dedicated to it on the forum.
