Trunk Records releasing Refined Lard budget sampler

Jonny Trunk is releasing a 30 track compilation of selections from the Trunk Records catalogue, housed in a lookalike Sainsbury's Refined Lard cardboard sleeve and priced for the bargain hungry/recession pressed at a couple of quid. It includes tracks by Terry Thomas, Basil Kirchin, Bill Evans, plus advertising jingles, children's singing, film music, and a Cha Cha version of "Tie Me Kangaroo Down" by Rolf Harris.

The cover design takes its cues from 1960s/70s Sainsbury's packaging, which Trunk recently documented in a coffee table book titled Own Label.

The Refined Lard compilation is due to arrive around the end of September. More details incoming on the Trunk site.
