Help me Solve a 20-year Audio Mystery
Somewhere back in the mid-eighties, when I was in High School, I played around with tape recorders a lot, picking up stray sounds, trying to edit them into something weird / cool / funny. One good source was the radio, and one day, while recording a show on NPR, I picked up this song (short excerpt in MP3 format here - about 800k
). The tape ran out before the announcer said what the song was, or who performed it, or anything. I know nothing about this song, but over the years, it's come to mean a lot to me.
This recording (on a cheap cassette) has survived dozens of moves, boxes, tape players and neglect for nearly 20 years. Only recently I recorded it onto my PC (so the sound quality is poor). My request to you, if any of you can help, is to help me name this song / artist / album, since I would dearly love to buy a better quality recording, and hear more music like it.
My only clues are that it sounds like something performed by Stuart Dempster (but I don't think it is), and that it's performed with brass instrument(s), and that the release date is pre-1986. If you can help, or to get a link to the full MP3 version of the song (6mb), please send me a note
. Thanks ever so much.http://www.kokogiak.com/gedankengang/default.asp#07007200110
