Manolo JuarezDe Aqui En Mas (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Trova/Disques Dessinee (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $22.99
Really sublime, really unique piano trio work from Manolo Juarez – an obscure 70s session that has a feel that's unlike anything else we can think of! The set was done for the Trova label in Argentina, but it's got echoes of other South American modes throughout – maybe a bit of bossa guitar here, some Chilean flute there, and lots of the modern elements and shadings that a musician like Juarez was absorbing from the best players of the previous generation – both on his continent and the European one. The tunes have this balance of swing and sentiment, modern and folkloric – and the music is filled with a range of deeper, more melancholy moments – juxtaposed with bursts of pure joy. Titles include "La Ultima Palabra", "De Aqui En Mas", "La Loca", "Ya Me Voy Yendo", "La Telesita", and "Cueca De La Vina Nueva". CD

Luis BacalovBacalov In Lounge – Roma Bene/La Percora Nera/Rosamor/Soft & Smooth ... 7-inch
Black Cat (Italy), 1966/1968/1971. New Copy (pic cover)... $11.99
Four very cool groovers from Italian maestro Armando Trovajoli – pressed up here on a limited edition 7" EP, with two tracks that have never been issued before! "Roma Bene" is represented by a rare "shake" version that has some fuzzy guitar that trips out nicely over upbeat grooves – and "La Pecora Nera" gets a cool vocal take from Rocky Roberts, who sings soulfully over the mod rhythms! Side two features a new edit of "Rosamor", sung by Juca Chavez – and the sublime "Soft & Smooth" too. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Gianni Boncompagni, Bruno Canfora, Italo GrecoColpo Di Sole/Spia Spione/Riuscira' Il Nostro Eroe A Ritrovare Il Piu' Grande Diamante Del Mondo ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1966/1967/1968. New Copy ... $16.99
A trio of mid-to-late 60s Italian spy soundtracks – Italo Greco and Gianni Boncompagni's work for Riuscira' Il Nostro Eroe A Ritrovare Il Piu' Grande Diamante Del Mondo, Boncompagni's score for Colo Di Sole, and Bruno Canfora's work for Spia Spione – on one great CD from Beat Records! We'll admit to knowing very little about the films, but we must say, this material is very nicely curated, which shouldn't come as surprise given Beat's always warmly presented film score sets. It covers the genre terrain beautiful, from big scale, action-y orchestras, to stripped down, loungey cocktail jazz and beyond. The material from each of the three soundtracks is comprised of sequences on the title themes. 31 tracks in all! CD

Marc 4I Solisti Di Armando Trovajoli ... LP
Plastic (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy ... $19.99
Wonderfully groovy! This is the first-ever album by the legendary Marc 4 studio group – a funky Italian combo that featured Armando Trovajoli on keyboards, plus backing by guitar, drums, and bass. The keyboards vary from funky organ to jangly electric harpsichord to sharp-edged piano – and the group's sound is often augmented by some extra horn work. Things are nicely funk and nicely groovy throughout – and although you may have a few tracks by Marc 4 on other comps, this is a great complete release of their work, with plenty of tracks that we've never heard before. Titles include "Silouette", "Jockey", "To Pedal", "Trafalgar Square", "Soho", "Love Theme", "Mato Grosso", "Lua Linda", and "Gare". Great cover, too! LP, Vinyl record album

Gianni MarchettiL'Occhio Selvaggio (aka The Wild Eye) ... CD
CAM (Italy), 1968. Used ... $6.99
A groovy little Italian soundtrack – straight in some parts, but very nice in others! There's some sweet tunes that features wordless female vocals – in the mode of work by Armando Trovajoli or Ennio Morricone from the time – and there's other tunes that have a dancing groovy style that are right in the Easy Tempo mode. The tracks are very short, but groove around nicely – and really fit the feel you might expect from a title like The Wild Eye! Titles include "Bali Street", "The Sultan", "Don't Go Away", "The Kiss", "Two Lovers", "Love Comes Back", "Goodbye", and "Golden Age". CD

Robby PoitevinTenica Di Un Omicidio/Quella Carogna Dell'Ispettore Sterling ... CD
Cinedelic (Italy), 1966/1968. New Copy ... $16.99
Rare work from composer Robby Poitevin – pulled from two groovy Italian films of the late 60s! Tecnica Di Un Omicidio is a great action score, put together with a heavy dose of jazz – great vibes, flute, and plenty of other horns – blasting out with a hip style over lots of tight percussion – almost in the manner of spy films from the time, but with a lot more complexity at points, almost the depths of a drama, without any of the sleepy moments. The film's represented by 12 tracks here, all of them pretty great, and pretty different from each other – a really fresh batch of music that includes "Alba A New York", "Central Station", "My Man", "L'Ultima Vittima", "Bassifondi", "Clint In Agguato", and "Tecnica Di Un Omicido". Quella Carogna Dell'Ispettore Sterling is a great score to a hip 60s crime thriller – served up with a mod mix of bossa nova, jazz, and some groovier bits – really great music that easily rivals the late 60s greatness of better-known Italian composers like Armando Trovajoli or Piero Piccioni! Some tunes are upbeat and driving – almost in a mod mode – while others have a dreamier style that makes cool use of organ and voice, the latter of which is handled by I Cantori Moderni on two tracks, and Gianfranca Montedoro on one more. There's an odd sort of feel to the music, in ways that have the same sort of charm as the great score for The Tenth Victim, especially in the use of organ. Titles include "Allucianzione", "One More Step", "Alba A San Francisco", "Tema Dell'Ispettore Sterling", and "Adesso Che Hai Vent'Anni". CD

Nino Rota/Armando TrovajoliBoccaccio '70 ... LP
RCA, 1962. Very Good- ... $11.99
A 3-part soundtrack to this 3-part film that features different segments by Fellini, Visconti, and De Sica. The mode is Italian sex comedy – and the styles used here by Trovajoli and Rota are groovy and whimsical – occasionally touched with jazz or jerk/beat modes, but more in the ornate humoresque mode of early 60s Italian scores. Titles in clude "Riffa Cha Cha", "Twist Della Balera", "Soldi Soldi Soldi", "A Spasso Per Roma", and "Slow Di Pupe". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label RCA International pressing with deep groove. Cover has some wear, with some splitting on the top and bottom seams.)

Armando TrovajoliItaliani Brava Gente ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1965. New Copy 2CDs ... $12.99
One of the more dramatic 60s soundtracks we've heard from the great Armando Trovajoli – a set of darkly brooding music that's perfect for the film's story of the Axis defeat in Russia during the winter of 1942! Trovajoli's got a really great way with his horns here – using them in this compressed way that really resonates strongly – sometimes with some very low-end energy that's quite striking, and which underscores the deeper feeling of the strings. But even better is the use of harmonica from Franco De Gemini – played here with an eerie, somber quality that's almost even more powerful than some of his work on westerns! This lavish 2CD package features the full soundtrack, plus a bonus CD of 32 more tracks – which means a lot more of Franco De Gemini to love than usual! CD

Armando TrovajoliL'Anatra All'Arancia (with bonus tracks) ... CD
GDM (Italy), 1975. New Copy ... $26.99
Duck with orange, and a groovy set of musical backings as well – thanks to great 70s work from the legendary Armando Trovajoli! The soundtrack has a bit of the breezy elements of Trovajoli's 60s material, but also has these great soulful elements too – thanks to vocals from singer Suan, who contributes to about half of the songs on the core album. Armando plays piano, but also brings in lots of sweet 70s keyboards as well – used in soulful styles that are sometimes surprisingly funky – a real change that makes the record a great surprise! CD features the core album, plus 9 more bonus tracks too – and titles include "You Keep On Turning Me On", "Canard A L'Orange", "Surf Service", "Locked To A Duck", "I Betcha", "Enfado", and "Prima A Poi".

Black Cat (Italy), 1966. Used ... $16.99
This one's a kistchy comedy period piece – but the music is all-60s, all the way! The score was written by the great Armando Trovajoli – and he had no qualms about using as much Hammond organ, electric guitar, and other 60s easy psyche elements in this film about a visit by Beelzebub to ancient Rome. The music is performed by I Marc 4, and many of the tracks have groovy vocal refrains or choruses, giving the songs a hip go-go swinging sound! Great stuff all around, and the reissue comes with a gazillion extra tracks! Titles include "Legati Pacis", "Maddalena", "Adramelek", "Il Filo Dei Giorni", ""L'Attesa", "Moto Perpetuo", and "Quant'e Bella Giovinezza". CD

Digitmovies (Italy), 1959. New Copy ... $23.99
The poor little millionaire gets a great soundtrack here from Armando Trovajoli – working at a point that's relatively early in his film career – when he was still doing a lot of jazz and other instrumental work on other fronts as well! There's definitely lots of jazz in the mix – with piano solos from Trovajoli himself – and some sweet charts that use some very groovy guitar parts in ways that range from mellow and late nite to more swinging overall. Franco De Gemini plays a nice harmonica solo in a few spots – and the CD features 19 tracks from the film! CD

Digitmovies (Italy), 1960/1961. New Copy ... $22.99
Two early horror soundtracks from Armando Trovajoli – back to back on a single CD! First up is Seddok L'Erede Di Satana (also known as Atom Age Vampire) – a score that's got lots of dark moments, way more so than Trovajoli's later bossa-styled work – with these really odd, offbeat orchestrations often mixed with even more unusual sounds! Things are pretty tense throughout – nice and spare and with the feel that something's about to jump out of the darkness at most moments – and the CD features 18 tracks from the film, remastered with great sound. Next is Lycathropus (aka Werewolf In A Girls Dormitory) – another wonderfully spooky score by Trovajoli, with weird woodwind passages and some other cool sounds that might be electronic, or might just be very inventive use of conventional instruments. A few of the best themes have this forward-cascading piano that's very nice – and the CD features 16 tracks from the film. CD

One of the best-ever euro soundtracks on United Artists! Lots of great Italian sixties scoring by Armando Trovajoli, with lots of jazzy crime music (this is a heist movie, apparently), and really cool Swingle Singers-sounding vocals by a group called I.Cantori Moderni. The sound is great, very groovy, and very much along the lines of stuff that you might find on a Crippled Dick or Easy Tempo compilation. Tracks include "Ping Pong", "Thunder Bolt", "Walk On Home", and "Golden Bricks". LP, Vinyl record album

Epic, 1970. Near Mint- ... $11.99
Wonderfully groovy European soundtrack work – a "triple feature" that contains tunes from the films Casanova 70, Darling, and Marriage Italian Style! The music for Casanova 70 is oddly not credited on the album – but features some excellent jazzy tunes, really swinging with lots of nice horn parts – and a few especially nice numbers that use electric harpsichord and have a very mod 60s feel! Darling is a British film with mellower work – larger orchestrations by John Dankworth – and Marriage Italian Style moves back into the realm of the groovy with a few nice numbers by Armando Trovajoli. Titles include "C'E Un Non So Che", "My Baby's Rockin", "Swinging Lonely", "Running Slow", "Sempre Cosi", "See What's Happening", and "Is That You Again". LP, Vinyl record album

Soundtrack funk doesn't get any better than this – thanks to a head-expanding of tracks from the Italian scene of the 60s and 70s – served up with the usual ear for a great cut by the folks at Easy Tempo! The groove here is far from the "easy" you might expect – and most numbers have tight drums, funky basslines, and other heavy elements – all put together with an approach to the music that's far different than anything happening in the US at the time, especially in the way the instruments sound in the end – and in the way that the production techniques make them do really crazy things! Titles include "Parangua" by Luiz Bacalov, "Flirt a Rio" by Piero Umiliani, "Side Sleep" by Berto Pisano, "Little Shakie Girl" by Armando Trovajoli, "Tremendous Stars" by Piero Piccioni, "Under Drama" by Giancarlo Gazzani, "Realta No 5" by Stelvio Cipriani, "So" by Lara Saint Paul, "Israelites" by Capuano, and "Citta Viva" by Ennio Morricone.

Slammin's a definite good choice for the title of this one – as this 5th entry in the Easy Tempo series seems even funkier than the other volumes – a set that's got plenty of full-on grooves, hand-picked from the genius Italian soundtrack years of the 60s and 70s! If you're looking for a place to start digging the full range of talents of the maestros of this time, you'd be hard pressed to find a better collection – as the Easy Tempo name always means the best bits from this scene, served up in a package that packs a lot more punch than any single individual soundtrack! Titles include "Loco Love Motor" and "The Frog" by Augusto Martelli, "Montreal Non Stop" and "Anice Nuraghi" by Luiz Bacalov, "L'Arcangelo" by Piero Umiliani, "Running Fast" by Stefano Torossi, "Blazing Magnum" by Armando Trovajoli, "Trop's" by Alberto Baldan Bembo, "Vuca" by Tony Mimms, and "The Chicken" by Dick Oliver.

As always, the style is heavy on Italian soundtrack modes – that great blend of bossa, jazz, and other elements that graced so many cinematic excursions of the period – and which have been beautifully re-presented by Easy Tempo over the course of their excellent series. Set features titles that include "Sweden" by Tito Fontana, "Caccia Al Ladro" by Armando Trovajoli, "Tap 5" by Ettore Ballotta, "Notte In Allegria" by Piero Umiliani, "Golden Gate Bridge" by Riz Ortolani, "Gangster Song" by Piero Umiliani, "Ebony Ride" by Piero Piccioni, "Gordon Blues" by Francesco De Masi, "Concerto Blues" by Gianni Ferrio, and "Glad" by Lou Stein Trio.

GDM/Cinedelic (Italy), 1968. Used ... Just Sold Out!
2 of the grooviest soundtracks ever recorded by this Italian genius! For the score to the mod 60s film Il Profeta, Trovajoli adds in some great elements like twanging guitars, trippy sitar, and hammond organ – all of which groove along in kind of a "go go" mode on the set's best numbers, laying out a vision of swinging Italy that really makes us wish we were there! Titles include "Il Profeta", "Abbiamo Capito", and "Topo Di Campagna", all done in a number of versions, making for a total of 16 cuts in all! La Matriarca is even better – built around one lovely little melody, similar to Francis Lai's legendary A Man & A Woman soundtrack! The tune is totally compelling, and is played in a variety of speeds and settings – on organ, electric harpsichord, and piano – all with jaunty little rhythms, and a slightly bossa, slightly Frenchy sound to it. Really wonderful, and the kind of ditty you'll be humming for weeks after you listen to it! There's 9 tracks in all – including "Bossa Nova Remix", "Piano Solo", "Slow Take", "Main Titles", and "Dream Version". 25 cuts in all – with both soundtracks on the CD! CD

The set's got this warmly stepping groove that's really tremendous – spacious sounds that draw on Trovajoli's previous bossa work, with some more electric 70s elements at times – but never too much at all.

New Armando TrovajoliSesso Matto – Original Soundtrack ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1972. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Funky grooves, floating vocals, mellow keyboards, and a whole lot more – easily one of the greatest soundtracks ever from the legendary Armando Trovajoli – and certainly one of the grooviest too! There's a sublime quality to this score that's well made Sessomatto one of the best-remembered albums from the glory years of the Italian soundtracks – a sense of space, pacing, and timing that are simply breathtaking – and which are the perfect summation of Trovajoli's earlier experiments in music. As with his score to La Matriarca, the instrumentation here varies often – sometimes a bit of horns, nicely compressed; sometimes a floating harmonica line; sometimes keyboards; and sometimes a funky rhythm topped with vocals – all woven together in a rich pastiche of styles that makes the album one of the deepest soundtracks you'll hope to own from the time. The remastering here is wonderful – way better than the previous Japanese reissues, and done in a way that really isolates the best elements of the music – letting the simple balance of sound and space resonate beautifully, and exposing even more of Trovajoli's genius with a wealth of bonus tracks. These added numbers really open the whole thing up – taking the album way past the familiar "Sessomatto" theme (reworked and remixed for the dancefloor often in later years), and almost creating a mini-movie in sound – with all the requisite scene shifts and drama to match! CD features a whopping 41 tracks in all – with titles that include "Sessomatto", "Signora Sono Le Otto", "Two Happy People", "Ammuri Ammuri", "D'Amore Si Muore", "Un Amore Difficile", "Due Cuori E Una Birra", "Bravo Balli bene", "Scappa Gilda", "Vorrei Che Fosse Amore", "Searching For Something", and "L'Ospite".

A few themes are reworkings of familiar soundtrack tunes, but most of the material is original – and done with a sparkling sound that's really great! The grooves are filled with loads of tight drums, bubbling organ, jangly piano, and sweet female vocals in sort of a Morricone-ish tradition. Great stuff, and with 20 excellent tracks that include "Amori Finiti" by Giancarlo Gazzani, "Relief" by The Black Fire, "Rossana" by Armando Trovajoli, "Sometime" by A Santisteban, "Tema Di Linda" by Franco Micalizzi, "Curriculum" by Franco Chiari, "Coronado 990" by Orchestra Henry Stone, "Meditation" by Romano Mussolini, and "Warm Blood" by Tullio Gallo.

New I Cantori Moderni Di AlessandroniModern Singers ... CD
Bella Casa (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the key forces in the Italian soundtrack scene of the 60s – finally given their due in a CD of their own! I Cantori Moderni never really made any records on their own, but they were a key part of soundtrack work by some of the best Italian composers of their generation – including Ennio Morricone, Armando Trovajoli, Bruno Nicolai, Piero Umiliani, and Luis Bacalov – all of whom were lucky enough to have the group work on their music! The ensemble is headed by Alessandro Alessandroni – who himself contributed much to soundtracks of the time – and like their maestro, they've got a great way with many styles – from spookier mood music, to sexy erotica, to upbeat, groovy tunes. This 27 track package pulls together some of the best bits from the group's late 60s and early 70s work on Italian soundtracks – music by all the composers listed above, from films that include Theorem, Queimada, Le Foto Proibite, Sette Volte Sette, Lo Scatenato, Maddalena, L'Alibi, Don Giovonni In Sicilia, Metti Una Sera A Cena, Scusi Facciamo L'Amore, and 4 3 2 1 Morte.

New Mario MolinoGli Angeli Del 2000 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Sugar/Wah Wah (Spain), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Beautiful grooves from the Italian scene of the late 60s – definitely one of the lesser-known soundtracks of the time, but work we'd rank right up there with the best by Piero Piccioni or Armando Trovajoli! There's a fair bit of trippy sounds on the record – from fuzzy guitar to weirdly watery keyboards – and tunes move between funky "jerk" and "shake" numbers that almost have a sound library funk feel, to mellower, moodier ones that sometimes feature wordless vocals from the great Edda Dell'Orso! The sound is sublime throughout, and this package adds a lot of extra cuts that were not on the very short original album – making for a total of 20 tracks that include "Poemas", "Bossa Jaguar", "Shake Psycho", "Jerk Beat", "T'Amo", "Le Mani", and "All See Saw".

New Armando TrovajoliIl Profeta/La Matriarca ... CD
GDM/Cinedelic (Italy), 1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
2 of the grooviest soundtracks ever recorded by this Italian genius! For the score to the mod 60s film Il Profeta, Trovajoli adds in some great elements like twanging guitars, trippy sitar, and hammond organ – all of which groove along in kind of a "go go" mode on the set's best numbers, laying out a vision of swinging Italy that really makes us wish we were there! Titles include "Il Profeta", "Abbiamo Capito", and "Topo Di Campagna", all done in a number of versions, making for a total of 16 cuts in all! La Matriarca is even better – built around one lovely little melody, similar to Francis Lai's legendary A Man & A Woman soundtrack! The tune is totally compelling, and is played in a variety of speeds and settings – on organ, electric harpsichord, and piano – all with jaunty little rhythms, and a slightly bossa, slightly Frenchy sound to it. Really wonderful, and the kind of ditty you'll be humming for weeks after you listen to it! There's 9 tracks in all – including "Bossa Nova Remix", "Piano Solo", "Slow Take", "Main Titles", and "Dream Version". 25 cuts in all – with both soundtracks on the CD! CD

New VariousCommedia Sexy All'Italia ... CD
Mediane (Italy), 2007. Used ... Out Of Stock
A really crazy little package – one that's filled with sexy images from Italian comedies of the 60s and 70s – and packaged with a special CD to match! The booklet itself is practically softcore porn (so be aware of that, you sensitive viewers!) – full color pages with images from the films, most of which feature ladies in some state of undress. And the CD's also pretty great too – and features 20 classic sex comedy themes that include "Sessomatto" by Armando Trovajoli, "Isola Tuttofare" by Piero Umiliani, "Fail Piano Fai Presto" by Gianni Ferrio, "Quel Gran Pezzo Dell'Ubalda" by Bruno Nicolai, "Curiosita Infantili" by Fred Bongusto, "Vieni Avanti Cretino" by Lino Fanfi, and "Rio 70" by Nylon.

New Luis Bacalov (Luiz Enriquez)L'Amica (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Octave (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the greatest soundtracks ever from Luiz Bacalov – a set that's filled with sex and slink, but which also has a great sense of groove as well – blending bossa jazz, mod moments, and all the best styles of the late 60s Italian scene! The music is mostly acoustic, but has a really great way of using sustained notes on flute – which creates this dreamy vibe that's almost electric, especially when offset by acoustic basslines, percussion, and piano – all used at a level that's right up there with the best from Morricone or Trovajoli at the time! There's also wonderful drifting vocals in the mix – courtesy of Nora Orlandi – and titles include "Round Nassau", "Swingin Easy In Tanganika", "Rio Zona Sul", "L'Amica", and "Taxi Cab 67". CD also features 9 bonus tracks too! CD

New Teca & RicardoCade O Povo ... CD
Pulp Flavor/Dare Dare (France), 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sweetly jazzy Brazilian grooves from the team of Teca & Ricardo – a lovely album recorded in France in the mid 70s, and unheard for years! The feel here is not that dissimilar from some of the recent work by Tom & Joyce, or classic work by the team of Jaime & Nair – Teca's lovely vocals upfront in the mix, often joined in harmony by Ricardo, with backings that are spare and which include lots of acoustic guitar. Post-bossa jazzy vocals with a slight electric twist – warm and intimate, but with lots of groove-oriented touches! Titles include "Saranda", "Estrela Da Cancao", "Cafune", "Trovaoda", "Pra Que Tanta Explicao", and "Le Son Hante". CD

New Armando TrovajoliC'Eravamo Tanto Amati (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Beat/Disques Dessinee (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Totally great soundtrack music from the mighty Armando Trovajoli – a sweet 70s score that's filled with wonderful work on keyboards! The groove is gentle on most numbers, which lets the keyboards snake out in these cool slinky ways – often with an undercurrent of Euro sex, as you'd find in the music of Stelvio Cipriani – but with some of the lighter touches you'd find in Trovajoli's late 60s work for love stories too! Different melodies stand out on each track, but in a gentle way – and there's a slow-bubbling, slow-burning quality to the record that makes it completely seductive. Titles include "Picchiapo", "Tema Per Luciana", "Tema Amiciza", "Strano Interludio", "Tema Per Elide", and "Io Ero Sandokan", which features vocals by Maria Tereza. CD

New Armando TrovajoliToto E Peppino Divisi A Berlino ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1962. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A military film, but one with a playful little soundtrack – penned by Armando Trovajoli with just the right sort of comedic touches throughout! The melodies often have this quirky feel – not too far from Nino Rota at the time, and often played on woodwind and piano solos with a stepping quality that's very nice – whimsy that is sometimes matched by more military work on the snare drum – but often used in very gentle ways. The whole thing's pretty sweet – with qualities that really match some of the best Fellini film scores from the same time – quite a surprise compared to Trovajoli's later work! CD features new mastering, and 18 tracks from the film. CD

New VariousSessomatto Experience ... CD
Easy Tempo (Italy), 1997. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Full length CD that features a huge range of different talents all remixing the classic Italian soundtrack cut "Sessomatto" by Armando Trovajoli (which was included on Easy Tempo Vol 1). The set's got the full original version, plus cool remixes by Raphael Sebbag of U.F.O., DJ Smash, The Karminsky Brothers, Claudio Coccoluto, and other modern mixologists dedicated to transforming this classic jazzy bossa groove. Despite the repetition, the sound varies from track to track, and the release works well enough as a full-length LP with a sound that's in keeping with the rest of the Easy Tempo catalog. CD
