CBW '7 Inches, Bigger than Average!'

Now this is proper! Chester Both Worlds has sent us a mix for the OMC and its a 7″ orgy of awesome…

This is a new mix tape taken from my collection of 7inch records, all genuine music I grew up with, and loved, Punk, Hip Hop and Ska, dominate the play list but with the funk of Jefferson, the sweet country music with Johnny Cash, the rock n roll of the Stray Cats & Ricky Nelson rebel rousin’ there is plenty of variation, most of these records I collected with my brother Benny Fonzarelli, including Runaway boys which was the first record I spent money on (my bro and me went half’s with our pocket money, 12 and half pence each I believe it was) and some of the records are from the Juke box we used to have in our living room, like the Who classic I’m a boy, and subterranean Homesick Blues.

The only sound on the mix not taken from a 7”” record is the West Ham United commentary of the 1980’s cup Final which is taken from the 12inch vinyl commentary, which I couldn’t resist using for the purposes of this mix.
