Tempos Of Time



A curiosity now I found in the Hospice shop today - an EP on the HMV label circa 1960's. A soundscape of the last century starting with the clip clop of a horse drawn cab and ending with the bleep bleep of Sputnik. In between the voices of Churchill, Hitler, Marie Lloyd, Curuso, Gracie Fields and George Formby to name but a few. Commentary by Rt.Hon Lord Brabazon of Tara whose fruity tones link one voice and sound effect to the next in a weird yet strangely comforting way. A time capsule for the ears.
