THE TUNE YOU CAN'T DOWNLOAD
Every week Jon and Andrew try to trump each other's most unusual musical treasures. We can guarantee you won't be able to get hold of these tracks anywhere - and certainly not download them. With the help of record detective Jonny Trunk, we share them with you each week.
If you have an equally bizarre track that you think we should hear please E-mail us.
No Smoking comes from 'Panic, Son of Shock', the second in a series of quite barmy recordings by the Creed Taylor Orchestra. The track here was written by Ken Hopkins and was published by Ampco Music. Sleeve notes include the fact that this album is "a trifle strange". Issued by ABC Paramount, circa 1959.
- Bohemian Rhapsody
Andrew thought he'd pulled a fast one when he uncovered a rare white label track from his soggy cardboard box in the garage. Surely this was the tune to win the final and deciding round of their bloody battle?
Extraordinarily Andrew's 'white label' find turned out to be one of the most popular records of all time - 'Bohemian Rhapsody' by the lesser known mega star band Queen, which was frankly very downloadable. As Jon reeled back on his heels at the astonishingly stupid choice, Mr Collins, remarkably unperturbed by his status as the only man in the world not to know who Freddie Mercury was, took advantage of Jon's open mouth and stole victory from the jaws of defeat by snatching the trophy and triumphantly crowing "I am the champion!". Go figure at the logic in all of that.
