Try the instrumental track ..West 4th Street by Bobby and Valerie Capers...has all kinds of stuff in that , cars , trams and vocal effects....underated instrumental IMO

Thought that was a man having a pee?

I am led to believe (rightly or more likely someone pulling my leg) that is was Popcorns kids, a bike chain and a dustbin lid.

Also how about the 'operator' on Operator operator - Johnny Baker (is it?). or the one on Please Operator. is that johnny Baker

in town whats-my-name

More surf than soul but it did get spins on the Scene:

The Centuries - Jack 23 on Cleopatra.

And here's a bit for trivia fans - the psychedelic noises on the intro were also used on a UK EP, namely The Daleks on Gerry Anderson's Century 21 label. I guess the sound must have originated on a library sound effect record or something. :lol:

One of those records sitting unplayed for many years at the back of my box.

Thank you for reminding me of how bad it is, I'll leave it there a little longer now. Maybe I'll sit it on top of a radiator or something

Hi

One of the best, in it's own way.

Tony & Tyrone - Please Operator.

Captured the essence of a phone call, dialling tones and all. Brilliant thumbsup.gif

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Brrrrrrring, "Hello"

"Hi Baby It's Me And I'm On The Way" ...... "WHAT!"

"Man If I Don't Ever See You Again It'll Be Too Soon,

....... You've Stayed Away Too Long" ... "I've Packed"

I think you're referring to the sound of Cool-Aid (soda-pop) pouring into a glass! ("...will you pour me a glass of pop" etc.

CLUE - it rhymes with its description, "poopsie"

I think the record that you are all trying to think of is FOOTSEE by Wigans Chosen Few....think the crowd noise was Sheffield Wed fans, and the Horn was taken from a 1936 Bentley i think ,also the backing was performed on several Kazoos....fact!!..also i hope you are not trying to diss the record as remember it was the record that kicked it all off , plus i think its well overdue a comeback you could call it an underplayed oldie!.............................................

had you going there just for a second ...go on admit it :D

There are good "BOI - OI - OI - OI -OING" noises on Marvelettes' My Baby Must be a Magician.

I'll dance to any records with BOING noises in em!

"Hey Mr.Northern DJ dig this - I'll dance to any records with 'BOING' noises in em!" - Brilliant! :shades::D

The ONE and Only Soul record with the best ever sound effect just has to be "Darkest Days" by Jackie Lee on ABC records.

This was the first of only two records EVER recorded that include the lead singer playing percussion riffs using their own false teeth as castanets.

Just listen to the intro to "Darkest Days" and you will see what I mean. :thumbsup:

As a matter of interest, the 2nd record to feature this (almost) unique sound was "Dance Away" by Bryan Ferry & Roxy Music. Again, a quick listen to the first refrain will confirm this!! :lol:

Is it me?

Neil Jones :wicked:

hi all again,the old grey matter has conjured up a couple of mid 70s big tunes with weird sound effects involved,first an earlyish wigan spin,"the zoo",the commodores i think this was played on the northern scene when first released on usa mowest then issued on uk tamla-motown i remember this being played at wigan and other venues at the time,only my opinion but this 45 starts of crap then chugs along just fine,the second one,3 degrees,"contact" i think this was played at the mecca first i also remember this being played at wigan weird spacey sounds coming out of the casinos "lo-fi" system at the time another tune for me that sort of chugged along just fine two great tunes from the mid 70s and played at most venues around that time,phew i am sound effected out whistling.gif:lol::( ,oh no ive just smashed a glass or is it roy hamilton,cracking up over me!!!!!,soulie55 :(:shades::no:

Franciscans = Walk to the bottom of the sea = Jimbo

Excellent seagulls

I was gonna say that, being a fanatical bird watching type of guy!

Tamiko - Dont laugh if i cry at your party, mean 60s telephone groove! (same telephone on Tony Tyrone - please operator!)

Apparentley Ady Crosdell has just tracked this old telephone down and it will be making its debut appearance on these shores very soon.........along with some un-issued master tape ring dings............. biggrin.gif:unsure::thumbsup::yes:

Good thread! Mossy!
