I know the term "elevator muzak" probably seems a bit derogatory. I had this idea for a compilation last year, but somewhere along the line I simply lost interest in it. I think that'll work to your advantage though, because rather than sorting through the hundreds of songs I had to choose from and only picking the ones I wanted to use, I've decided to just post ALL of them here. I'm calling this "Volume 1". There's 284 tracks in all. You can decide which ones you want to keep. I didn't bother numbering them, so they're listed in alphabetical order by default. There's really only one song on here that isn't library music ("A Man and a Woman" by The London Pops Orchestra), the rest are all from various libraries. Sorry for my laziness in keeping the blog up-to-date. Hopefully this will make up for it! I'll post Volume-2 of this monstrous collection within the coming months. Yes, there's more. A lot more.

I haven't checked in here for almost a month and a half (I know, shame on me). Just thought I'd let y'all know that I haven't forgotten about you. The thing is, it takes time to rip vinyl and make compilations. And frankly my heart just hasn't been into it lately. I do however have thousands of songs on my computer. I don't know how anyone might feel about me just uploading a bunch of music (in no orderly fashion). I can guarantee there's quite a bit of stuff here that most of you don't already have. It'll be up to you to cull out whatever you don't want. But as far as me ripping any records or making new compilations, I'm done for now. If you like the idea of me uploading a shitload of library music from my computer, just let me know. I should be able to handle that! Until then, I'll talk to ya later.

I know I'm constantly apologizing for the lack of activity here. I just thought I'd post a little update to tide you over. I promise to have a new rip posted within the next week or so. I got a Reg Tilsley record a few weeks ago, but haven't gotten around to ripping it yet. Actually, I haven't even listened to it yet! Hopefully you won't be disappointed. So until then....

Okay, so I probably don't post as often as I'd like to. But I do try to make up for it when I can. Here we have 69 tracks in all (SEE TRACK LISTINGS) As I've mentioned before, I never use music from other blogs to make these compilations. I try to make sure everything that's posted here is fresh and new to the blogosphere. If you do hear a song that's already available from another blog, let me know, and I'll have the owner of this website fired. ;) Artists on this compilation include: Anthony Mawer, Ivor Slaney, Keith Papworth, Wilfred Burns, King Palmer, Stuart Crombie, Simon Park (aka Simon Haseley), E.A. Quelle, Steve Race, Harold Geller, Stanley Myers, Budtree/Leader, Peter Reno, Peter Milray, Ivor Osborne, Johnny Hawksworth, Jack Trombey, Roger Renaud, Gert Wilden, Ronald Hanmer, Larry Ashmore, and more!...DOWNLOAD

Fans of the old Capital Hi-Q series will have plenty to rejoice over. For the last 9 months or so, the folks at Carlin Production Music (CPM) have been doing a phenomenal job of restoring and reissuing the music from this library with composers like William Loose, Emil Cadkin, Philip Green, and Jack Cookery. Granted, the songs have all been renamed. But at this point, I've almost come to accept it as part of the nature of the beast. And given the alternative (paying top dollar for scratched and worn out records....IF you can even find them!) I guess I can't complain. They're up to collection #5 right now and after hearing all of them, I can hardly wait to see what gets released next. Like all library music, you can't just walk into a store and buy this stuff. Then again how many people actually listen to this stuff anyways? Just the few of us. Thank God for the internet, heh? Anyhow, most of the music from those 5 collections (CPM-1, CPM-2, CPM-3, CPM-4, and CPM-5) are included here. A majority of the links (many of them are under 10 seconds long) were NOT included along with the 30 second versions of songs which are already on here. This would've been redundant after awhile. What you do get is 184 tracks. Enough for a long drive, or just a lazy Sunday afternoon at home. Here's a PDF of the track listings. Everything is tagged, but I didn't number them. So the songs will play in alphabetical order by default. I think you'll enjoy this one.

Finally, some new music! Compilations released by Winchester Hospital Radio have had somewhat of a "cult" following over the years. These discs have a rather limited production run, so when they're gone, that's usually it. :( This long out-of-print album is one I'm sure you'll enjoy. Note: Other WHR compilations can be found on Cosmobells' site (you'll need 7-Zip to extract the Rar files). GET ALBUM HERE
