Nick Ingman – Big Beat (Music De Wolfe – DWS/LP 3285 - UK - 1973)


Certainly in my Library Top 10, this "Big Beat" composed by British musician Nick Ingman released in 1973 on the prestigious Music De Wolfe label is just a masterpiece. In the 80's, Ingman’s reputation as an arranger for pop records was growing and he had early hits with Sade, Everything But The Girl, The Fine Young Cannibals, The Pale Fountains, and Working Week. Lots of funky instrumentals throughout with titles that include "Strike", "Down Home", "Thrust", "Snatch", "Trip Wire", "Overtone", "Smooth", "Long Line", "Throng", and "Orgy". Extremely hard to find nowadays it always been one of the most sought after British Library.

Record is strong VG+ (a few hairlines, record is glossy, plays really well) / Sleeve is strong VG++ (very light edge & corner ring wear)
