      Now Great news as Norman Barrington wrote:
      As many of you will probably know, I have a rather large archive of jingles, and having worked on Caroline in the 1970s have an extensive collection of Caroline related material. In October 2020, Ray Anderson of Jumbo Records & EAP fame approached me with the idea of combining our collections to make a spectacular collection of Caroline Jingles, Commercials, Production and Themes. In other words the material that made Caroline sound the way it did.
      I started a long overdue organising my own collection and also called in items from former DJs, colleagues and friends, even some original jingle producers. The names of everyone that helped are on the back cover, much appreciated.
       
      We decided to include everything possible from both North & South ships, the Dutch era and the Ross Revenge. We also thought we should include other names associated with the ships, namely Atlantis, Radio Mi Amigo, Radio Seagull and Radio Monique. The entire story in sound from 1964-1990 at sea.
      I started out with the Jimmy Smith, Madeline Bell & Doris Troy package which I had on a master tape from Chesterfield Gardens, not only super quality but you may hear cuts you have not heard before, followed by the short ‘Sound-a-like’ mini set which I am convinced is the Barron Knights though I could be wrong “If you listen it sounds like Caroline”.
       
      Next “Proof of Purchase shows” like Caroline Cash Casino and Partners in Profit featuring Colin Berry amongst others. Loads of classic commercials from Caroline North and South too. The there is the clever editing of other stations’ mostly American made jingles, although ‘borrowed’ those jingles truly became their own. Caroline became “The Station with the Happy Difference”.
       
      The ingenuity of certain DJs with razor blades in hand, together with great imagination, is breathtaking. From the likes of Robbie Dale and Don Allen in the 1960’s to Steve England, Brian Anderson and – ahem – yours truly, in the 1970’s resulted in Caroline having the greatest repertoire of jingles & production to be heard anywhere, more in fact than all the other pirates put together. After all the US DJ’s of 1967-68 and the guys from Radio England brought all their station’s collection to Caroline too.
      Little did I know then that it would require FIVE full CDs to capture all the magic of the world’s most famous Pirate Radio Station. As you can tell this was a labour of love for me, and I like the idea of sharing with others these pieces of radio history. Plus I have finally sorted my own collection into some semblance of order!
      Well five months later it is NOW AVAILABLE complete with 32 page colour booklet. Whether it’s the 60’s, the 70’s, or 80’s that you remember, you can relive those four decades once again with this uniquely comprehensive Radio Caroline Platinum Jingle Collection.

      Here are the full contents with introduction:
      Radio Caroline Platinum Jingles Collection - 5 CD & 32 Page Collector's Set Over 1000 jingles appear on the most comprehensive 5 CD Collector's set of Radio Caroline Jingles. Over 6 hours of recordings, Jingles, Promos, Themes and Original Programme Material. All recordings have been re-mastered, digitised and improved using original master tapes. A 32 page colour booklet is included. The 5 CD Box Set has painstakingly been put together from the large archives of Norman Barrington & Ray Anderson combined, with additional material from former DJs, original jingle producers, friends & colleagues, and thus it forms the most comprehensive and historical memorabilia in sound from the World's most famous offshore radio station - Radio Caroline.

      Thanks a lot Norman for introducing this product. I had the luck to get an early preview and on the day I received the set, I heard the first 4 items on cd1 and, although I collected jingles for many decades too, I must admit this is a top production with a lot of material I never heard before and above that top quality. So a big compliment to Norman, Ray, Paul Graham and others involved. When ordering you will be as happy as I am having this marvelous collection.

      Cream – Sunshine of your love. Dit nummer is afkomstig van de in november 1967 verschenen lp ‘Disraeli Gears’, die het best verkochte album was van de groep met als leden Jack Bruce, Eric Clapton en Ginger Baker. De tekst van het nummer werd geschreven door Pete Brown. In 1968 verscheen het trouwens op een single in Nederland maar bereikte slechts een week de hitlijsten op nummer 17. Dat was begin maart 1968. Radio Caroline, dat begin die maand voor langere tijd uit de ether verdween, was het enige station dat het nummer intensief draaide. Het was in 1973 Andy Archer die de intro van ‘Sunshine of your love’ gebruikte voor 2 jingles: ‘This is the Joop Verhoofshow on Radio Atlantis’ en ‘Good afternoon this is Joop Verhoof on Radio Atlantis.’

      Ramsey Lewis  – Mother Nature’s Son. Een prachtige uitvoering van deze Lennon en McCartney compositie, afkomstig van de gelijknamige lp uit 1968. Een lp gevuld met allemaal composities van The Beatles. Ramsey Lewis werd orkestraal begeleid door een orkest onder leiding van de arrangeur Charles Stepney, die veel voor de Chess en Cadet platenmaatschappijen heeft gewerkt. Deze uitvoering van ‘Mother Nature’s Song’ werd in 1970 op RNI gebruikt voor de jingle ‘Every morning, Monday till Friday, from nine till twelve Andy Archer presents Archer’s Housewifery’.
