VA - Sounds Of The Unexpected, Weird & Wacky Instrumentals From Pop's Final Frontiers  [2017]

As a teenager, Vicki Fox worked at Rock On before becoming involved with Ace, where her skill at photographic restoration enhanced so many of their releases. A gifted artist and a passionate music fan, Vicki’s joie de vivre and live-wire personality enriched everything she undertook. Vicki also compiled several releases herself. Her love of cats was immortalized in Feline Groovy , a CD which launched a thousand T-shirts. This was followed by All Aboard (CDCHD 1450), a highly eclectic collection of train songs.

As part of the Ace Records family for more than 30 years, Vicki Fox’s final compilation celebrates the wild and wacky instrumental. Casting the net wide, “Sounds Of The Unexpected” revels in the unusual, the groovy and the downright bonkers with 24 of her favourite cuts. (Amazon)

It’s a perfect mix of lounge and surf music, not some of each but each song an excellent blend.
