Trunk Records is a funny old label, isn't it? Releasing obscure old avant-garde beardy nonsense alongside children's TV soundtracks and long-forgotten whimsy with a supreme disregard for the height of your brow. This short but sweet compilation throws together some of their finest moments and it's really all over the place.   There's two Calypso tracks for a start - one by Bernard Cribbins to open the collection and a particularly eyebrow-raising one by Robert Mitchum (yes, that Robert Mitchum) near the end, there's Noel Coward reciting Ogden Nash over Saint-Saens, there's West African highlife, funky post-punk and tape experiments...and yet this 16-track sampler holds together perfectly fine because the common thread running through it all is that these songs are interesting (or at the very least amusing) regardless of context. A really fun compilation.
