|Detail :||Percy "Thrills" Thrillington was born in Coventry Cathedral in 1939. As a young man his travels took him to Baton Rouge
U.S.A. where he studied music for five years on the trot. Moving later to Los Angeles he gained expertise in the marketing,
conducting and arranging fields. Eventually the path led to London where his long ambition to form his own orchestra was
realized. On this record Percy takes the themes from Paul McCartney's "Ram" and with the help of some of London's best
musicians forges them into orchestral versions that bear the unmistakable imprint - the mark of .. Thrillington.
The album starts with the sounds of an orchestra warming up and talking. As well as a full orchestra, drum, bass and piano
can be heard, and also a choir contributing some melodies.
The orchestra was arranged and conducted by Richard Hewson.
The cover artwork was by Jeff Cummins and designed by Hipgnosis, with sleeve notes by Clint Harrigan.
The original L.P. long since deleted is now quite sought after and can fetch over £100 ... incredibly, I gave my copy away
some years back.
