A sound library and a dancefloor? Sounds like an unlikely combination – but it results in a killer collection that's still one of the greatest sets of sound library funk we've ever heard! This massive batch of music
is a great illustration of the special sound of the KPM library – a really unique outlet for British music
ians in the 60s and 70s to craft records that were even more amazing than their studio sides – vintage jazz, soul, and electronic grooves – served up by a lineup that represents the cream of the crop of the UK scene of the time – plus a few surprising outside contributions as well! Titles include "That's What Friends Are For" by Alan Parker & Madeline Bell, "Second Cut" by James Clarke
, "Swamp Fever" by John Cameron, "Incidental Backcloth No 3" by Keith Mansfield, "Cross Talk" by Francis Coppieters, "Jungle Baby" by Juan Erlando & His Latin Band, "Freeway To Rio" by Les Baxter, "In Advance" by Pierre Lavin, "Senior Thump" by Alan Hawkshaw, "Expo In Tokyo" by Alan Moorehouse, "Funky Express" by Duncan Lamont, "Morning 1/
Morning 2" by Klaus Weiss, "Assault Course" by Johnny Pearson, and "Samba Street" by Barry Morgan. The package is a great reworking of the original KPM collection from Strut – and not only features the original funky set, but also features a bonus CD that includes a rare live performance by the KPM All-Stars in 2000 – a wicked reunion with work by James Clarke
, Duncan Lamont, Alan Hawkshaw, Keith Mansfield, and other giants from the heyday of KPM.
(2LP set features the core vinyl collection – and also contains the CD version of the collection, and bonus CD of the live set too.)
