2013 repress. Subtitled: Lost Advertising & Rare Film Sounds by Mike Sammes & The Mike Sammes Singers. A few years ago the Trunk label founder, Jonny Trunk was invited to a dead man's house. That dead man was Mike Sammes, from the legendary vocal harmony group "The Mike Sammes Singers." The Mike Sammes Singers are legends. Throughout the 1960s and 1970s they were the backing singers for everyone -- Frank Sinatra, Streisand, Sammy Davis, Bacharach, they sing on The White Album, they are even the evil vocal moaners on Krzysztof Komeda's infamous Rosemary's Baby soundtrack. After Sammes' death, the contents of his house were to be destroyed, and in amongst the debris destined for the furnace was a box of old advertising jingle reels. They were saved from destruction, brought to Trunk HQ, and over the last few years have been carefully restored and together they now form the heart of this brand new and quite extraordinary release. In short these are hugely entertaining skits, scats and vocal delights from the world of 1960s and 1970s advertising. Biscuits, banks, brassieres, motorbikes and cigarettes are all represented here -- there are even vocal tracks for tractors and paint! Mixed in is the lost score from Youth, a rare film about adolescence -- the master tape of this was rescued that same day from Mike's belongings. It's jazzy and surprisingly groovy, and of course, none of this music has ever been released before. Music For Biscuits is catchy, weird, slightly kitsch and very entertaining in a mad fashion, but watch out -- this a strangely addictive release. You'll be singing some of these advertising scats for years to come. One final note -- these recordings have never been released before, ever, on any format!!
