Vernon Elliot
The Clangers

Until the day comes when we can hear the Button Moon soundtrack pressed onto vinyl we must be content with this re-press of Vernon Elliott's soundtrack for Oliver Postgate's classic The Clangers series for infants. Recorded in a church hall in Kent in the late '60s this was originally released to acclaim on Trunk in 2001.

John Cameron
Kes (Original Soundtrack Music)

One of the great British films of all time, Ken Loach's 'Kes' is an atmospheric classic for any of us who grew up in the North of England but the soundtrack by John Cameron is equally evocative. He put together a crack jazz line up to get into the heart of the film and so the soundtrack will appeal to jazz as well as film buffs. A beautiful daydream antidote to an all too real South Yorkshire nightmare. This is the real thing. This is beauty so fragile it hurts" says Jarvis Cocker in his liner notes.

Buddy Collette Septet
Polynesia

Good old Trunk records, always finding the unusual and the bizarre. It's almost impossible to describe this latest discovery which seems to have been born by a need to connect the jazz of Buddy Collette with the oriental studies of A. I. Groeg which form the basis of the narratives that accompany the music. The result is unusual one part jazz album, one part tone poem. The album has been impossible to find, only turning up on rare bootlegs over the years. Now is your chance to own it on vinyl. 

Ernest Berk
Electronic Music For Two Ballets

German-born dancer and composer Ernest Berk is a comparatively little-known figure, and his back catalogue is nigh-on impossible to explore thanks to the loss of most of his archive around ten years ago. Electronic Music For Two Ballets is therefore a real treasure - replicated from the original recording from around 1970 and now held by his family.

Spider-Jazz – KPM Cues Used In The Amazing Animated Series - That We Are Not Allowed To Mention For Legal Reasons

I would have to believe that the title says it all, for this one. A 1967 cartoon about a web-slinger (maybe) who has become an internet sensation (maybe) is given the physical soundtrack it deserves, it's dramatic detective jazz given this beguiling release. A must-have for fans of music and mishaps in television history.

Jose Prates / Miecio Askanasy
Tam... Tam... Tam...

Prior to this vinyl LP reissue, Jose Prates and Miecio Askanasy’s 1958 Brazilian jazz record had the inauspicious reputation of being both of landmark importance and staggeringly rare at the same time. Luckily, Trunk records have decided to get it back in print. Fittingly for a record Gilles Peterson said he’d pay £1000 for, it’s an incomparable mixture of jazz, funk and bossa nova.

Jim Wilson
God's Chorus

In 1992, David Carson and The Little Wolf Band released Medicine Songs, an album of atmospheric New Age folk and spoken-word songs. For the closer, Carson’s nephew (and the album's producer & keyboardist) Jim Wilson recorded crickets chirping in the backyard one night, then duplicated the recording and slowed one layer down by several octaves. Perhaps surprisingly, the result is a melodic, ghostly choral sound. The isolated recording has been on SoundCloud for six years and streamed a thousand billion times; enter Jonny Trunk to bring us a vinyl version at last. Cover illustration by young Cornish artist Bess Kirby.

Basil Kirchin
Worlds Within Worlds (Part I and II)

A deep-cut wonder by Basil Kirchin gets reissued here, granting blessed wider availability to this fine document at last. Worlds Within Worlds is built out of carefully chosen field recordings that have then been treated and layered into abstraction, over which Evan Parker and Derek Bailey were invited to improvise. This reissue adds fine artwork and liner notes to the richly compelling 1971 music. From Trunk.

David Shire
The Conversation (Original Movie Soundtrack)

David Shire’s score to The Conversation has never been released in full on vinyl before. The film itself, released in 1974, directed by Francis Ford Coppola and starring Gene Hackman, is a masterful study of audio surveillance. A film with such a theme requires a well considered score, and that’s what we have. The score is notable for its minimalism which suits the tense but minimal action, very much going against the fashion at the time for overblown orchestral scores. LP on Trunk.

Alec Cheer
Night Kaleidoscope (Original Soundtrack)

For the  soundtrack to Grant McPhee’s multi-faceted indie detective film, Night Kaleidoscope, Alec Cheer looks to the heavyweights for inspiration. The sounds of John Carpenter, Brian Eno, Goblin and  Fabio Frizzi have all played their part in shaping this dark and dazzling electronic work. LP on Trunk.

Britxotica Goes Wild! Percussive Pop and Crazy Latin

Trunk brings us the latest instalment -- volume 5! Five! -- of the ongoing Britxotica series of compilation LPs. Legendary tastemakers Johnny Trunk and Martin Green cull and round up 16 more obscurities from pre-Beatles Exotica Britain with the emphasis on lively and fun, always. A previously (somewhat shady), forgotten genre of the era it's fair to say. Latin dance, cha-cha flavours and too-excitable-for-loungecore numbers abound; includes a great version of "House Of Bamboo" and plenty of other things of their time -- including a Ted Heath track that introduced classic telly "John Craven's Newsround". My, we are showing our age now.

Peter Cook, Dudley Moore, Dudley Moore Trio
Bedazzled – The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

First ever legal re-press of legendary soundtrack from Pete and Dud which is a mixture of pop, jazz, psych and daft stuff. The soundtrack has been a collectors item for some time and suffered from dodgy early '90s bootlegs. this is the real deal and includes alternate versions and an improvised bonus segment by Pete and Dud themselves.   

The Jellies
Jive Baby On A Saturday Night

One of the most highly treasured and sought-after post-punk rarities for record collectors is The Jellies’ 1981 single ‘Jive Baby On a Saturday Night’. Re-discovered in part by Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore, this limited 12” expanded re-issue does some of the job in satisfying that demand, including the original, a radio edit, and three remixes (including one from Lemon Jelly’s Fred Deakin).

Basil Kirchin
Silicon Chip

Basil Kirchin was an astonishing Hull-based musician and composer, who worked with orchestras, tape machines, avant-garde explorations and pop songs for many years, but with little recognition till Trunk got reissuing after his death. Silicon Chip is a properly funky slice of 1979 disco that jumps right into your head even though you’ve never heard it before. Yellow vinyl 7” on Trunk.

Zwartjes
Tapes 1

Trunk proudly add this gem to their catalogue of the weird, wonderful and experimental. Tapes 1 is a direct recording from the original archived tapes of experimental underground Dutch film director Frans Zwartjes, who improvised his bizarre soundtracks utilising synthesizers, voice and found sound. Only a very small amount of his audio has been released before on very limited cassettes, these are on vinyl for the first time.

Strictly Britxotica! Palais Pop and Locarno Latin

Join Jonny Trunk in his explorations of the weird and wonderful kitsch world of Britxotica: the music made by 50’s / 60’s British composers pretending to be from exotic international locations. Their dress-ups aren’t necessarily convincing, but they are fascinating and fun and groovy and good! Strictly Britxotica, the fourth in Trunk’s series, is released as a vinyl LP.

Delia Derbyshire and Elsa Stansfield
Circle Of Light – Original Electronic Soundtrack

An absolutely essential purchase for any fans of BBC Radiophonic Orchestra/early day synth, this very rare soundtrack created in 1972 by legendary composer Delia Derbyshire (along with artist Elsa Stansfield) finally gets a re-issue on the ever inquisitive Trunk records. They came up with a mix of sound design, tape manipulation and natural environmental sounds for Anthony Roland's 1972 film about the slides of radical stills photographer Pamela Bone.
