I'm on my travels right now. I spent a couple of days in New York on my way to the UK and picked up a few records I'll post later down the road. I got into London this morning and I feel terrible, the red eye flight was full of loud holiday shopping fashionistas, and am now all the more depressed after catching half an episode of 'Eastenders'. Yet tomorrow is a new day, I haven't been record digging in the UK in a couple of years, and its the season of giving so in that spirit I'm going to put up a deep and sought after European soulful disco 45 that you don't come accross often.
I can't tell you much about S.O.S by Mr. Morse And His New Alphaband, this was recorded from the Italian 7", although I heard there is also a Spanish released 7". The instrumental was even reused by EMI Italy for a local male crooners backing track, but not quite to the same effect. I do know it was an early effort of Franco Italian producer Albert Weyman, who has a pretty great myspace page, a look at his photos is a must. Its nice to hear middle aged pros from the deep funk scene are making credible euro trance: http://www.myspace.com/albertweyman
My copy came from a reclaimed jukebox out of a forgotten Americana themed coffee shop in northern Italy and cost me three shillings:
