This album is a great mixture of Jazz, pop and fusion, topped by Brian Auger's Hammond playing and Julie Driscoll's singing.

Released for a very short time in 1969 as a double LP album and shortly disappearing from the market the year after. Now it is on CD.

I personally own all Brian Auger's albums; some are good and some are great, however between the 30+CD's, if I had to choose the 3 best releases, Streetnoise would be among them.

The other 2 CDs?

Second Wind

Voices of other times.

Streetnoise is a CLASSIC. You will hear it year after year, and your ears and soul will still be amazed

I haven't bought the remastered CD. I still have my original vinyl version of this masterpiece, and I still listen to it. I stumbled across this CD listing while browsing Amazon and now it's on my wish list. As wonderful as I think this album is, this album is not for everyone. Julie Driscoll's vocals wander around, turning from modal to choral, soaring across the music. The music meanders from prog-rock-jazzy to ballads to drones and stretched out versions of pop tunes. Some of the cuts sound a little haunting. It turns at times from rockers to moody sound pictures. Driscoll only sings on about half the numbers, but her vocals are deeply felt. Some of the tunes are instrumentals and some are Brain Auger's vocals. Still, as fragmented as the whole thing might sound, it all pulls together into a fascinating and odd album. Except for some of the song choices being from a particular time, the album doesn't sound dated, because it doesn't sound like any particular kind of music.

Streetnoise by Brian Auger, Julie Driscoll & The Trinity is quirky, disjointed, erratic, sometimes dated, and even odd. But when it's good, wow, is it good. The Brian Auger solo organ tracks are really sharp, (Tropic Of Capricorn, Finally Found You Out, and especially Ellis Island which could go on for half an hour as far as I'm concerned.) At times Driscoll seems to be trying to sing through her voice instead of with it in her homage to Nina Simone. Still, when she's good, as is the case with Take Me To The Water and When I Was A Young Girl, she nails it to the wall. Very interesting treatments of standards like Save The Country, All Blues, and Light My Fire which Driscoll handles beautifully. If you're the type that bids on grab bags at raffles this is for you. Some clunkers, some gems. Looking In The Eye Of The World is Brian Auger doing a very nice Mose Allison impression. Good stuff.

When I was young, my older brother owned this album and I listened to it frequently. Julie Driscoll is one of the best and more under-enjoyed singers of the 60's Music Scene. Brian Augers Organ and Piano work is fantastic. The original songs are truly rare little gems of lyrical art, and the covers of other peoples songs are spectacular. My particular favorites are VAUXHALL TO LAMBETH BRIDGE, ALL BLUES, I"VE GOT LIFE, SAVE THE COUNTRY, and LIGHT MY FIRE. I've enjoyed listening to this album hundreds of times in my lifetime, and have listened to it quite often since acquiring it lately on CD. It is one of my favorite albums of all time.

You can get this cd for about $15-$16 online- I did. Just google the thing and you will find vendors. Well worth it- this thing is a masterpiece of incredible keyboards and soulful singing. Awesome covers of Light My Fire, Aint Got No/ I Got Life (from Hair) make this a must-have!
