Ken Griffin Collection 10 inch L. P's Updated Purchased, Bruce Millers, Aberdeen. Purchased February Bruce Millers, Aberdeen. Purchased while on holiday in Dundee in Purchased Aberdeen. Pink Transparent Vinylite. Bought via the Internet. Rondo RLP - Broadcast Royale LP Fleming, Carver, Massachussettes, U. Broadcast V - Louis blues N. The Ken Griffin - Half A Heart / Under A Red Umbrella version has since been purchased from Tim Barron Phoenix. I t was very interesting finding, and winning the last four 10" LP's Above on Ebay.
Firstly because the records were such clean copies and hardy played, if at all. In most cases the record labels look glossy new. However, it is in the tracks that we find that Ken had made different arrangements of the same songs with whichever Label company he was with at the time and these differences open up a fascinating look at how Ken progressed and matured at the keyboard and in his arrangement and recording abilities.
They are a good pointer too that if you, like myself, feel disappointed at finding a new recording but you already have most of the tunes listed, it will pay you to purchase these records as in all probability, they will be a completely different arrangement.
As with the 78rpm record page I would like to list and make 'personal' comment on each of the tracks on these four 10" LP's. Really swings. There are similarities and this very pleasant tune is played in Ken's lilting style that makes you want to whistle along. A Great skating number. Ken's fingers just fly over the keys.
Nice use of the 'whistling' sound that makes you feel like whistling along. However it was interesting to find that this is in fact the second un-named tune that Ken plays with Sonny dancing on the 67 Melody Lane TV Show and where we can see Ken actually play Loca - Azul Azul - El Sapo that very fast style where he flicks the keys at a fantastic rate. In the same 'fun' manner as Ken's 'My Life's Story.
Slightly more upbeat but with less trimmings. Update
