Touch Travel (tape, Touch T:4, 1984)

As promised another compilation by Touch, here more or less based on the notion of world music, in an extensive meaning. "Wrapped in a plastic bag with printed matters inside featuring contributions by Peter J. Bach, Neville Brody, Mooie Charrington, Panny Charrington, Kasper de Graaf, John England, John Forsyth, Yvonne Forward, Malcolm Garrett, Carrie Greenaway, Mike Harding, Rob Keyloch, Ben Mandelson, Norrie MacLaren, Andrew McKenzie, Chris Moretone, Garry Mouat, Jill Mumford, Ben Murphy, Fachtna O'Kelly, Tony Reason, D. Styme, Sheila Rock, Kevin Ward, Damian Wayling & Jon Wozencroft." Didn't scan that, just ripped the scans from discogs, but the music is a fresh rip by me

oh what a great pity. i guess none of the old Touch tapes should be posted? and just now i spend so much time on them... :(

That's a real shame - though I reckon it's courteous to remove the link at the request of the label.
These comps are legendary and it's a shame to not be able to hear them.
Thank you 433rpm for sharing all this stuff and thank you Mike for the wonderful sounds you have released for so many years.

I'm so sad. I wanted this for years. I understand the problem, but i really wanted to hear it.

Who are all of these bands?

433 RPM said...

hardly a relevant question now, since you can't hear this anymore. world music artists and pop artists with an interest in popmusic.

I have that tape and several others form Touch, most still in playing condition. As for the bands, some should still be familiar, like Jah Wobble, 3 Mustaphas 3, and Andrew Poppy. General Strike have a CD at Piano, the label of David Cunningham (Flying Lizards). Eithne Ni Bhraonain got famous when she changed her name to Enya ...

Thanx for posting so much good stuff, I always feel proud when I own a cassette or LP you post here.

I highly commend this blog for removing releases when asked to by the label that published the work.

I only wish certain other blogs would do the same.
