Under Pompelmo - Giuliano Sorgini

Get your go-go boots on -  this album has a glorious Swinging London feel to it despite being made in 1973. It's also known as London Transport, and is something of an oddity in that the opening track is nearly 16mins long, yet doesn't drag, or overstay its welcome, or feel like being stuck in a tunnel on the Northern line. Crisp drum sound, organ, guitar - all moving more efficiently than the city's tube trains, which isn't saying much. It's a big red Routemaster that you hop on to watch groovy London from the top deck, taking in mini-skirts, maxi skirts and Afro hairdos along the way.
