One of the coolest albums ever from the mighty Keith Mansfield – an arranger best known for his sound library work, but one who steps out beautifully here on a rare commercial album for CBS! The set's way more than just the batch of late 60s pop tunes that you might guess from the Beatles' reference in the title – as Keith really transforms most tunes with his hip approach to the grooves, and also manages to throw in a few gems of his own composition as well! The bottom of most numbers is plenty darn jaunty – funky at the best moments – and instrumentation includes some great Hammond and hard-edge piano lines that really send the tunes home. Titles include the killer "Soul Thing", used by Quentin Tarantino in Kill Bill, and "Boogaloo" – both originals by Mansfield – plus the tracks "Everlasting Love", "Whiter Shade Of Pale", "Moanin", "Walk On By", "Lovin Things", "Reach Out", "Rainbow Valley", and "Take Five". CD also features 8 bonus tracks that Keith arranged for Maynard Ferguson, Salena Jones, Love Affair and Alan Haven – including "Love For Sale", "Am I The Same Girl", "The Serpent", and "Soul Confusion".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Trunk (UK), Late 50s/1960s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy

Black Cat (Italy), 1971. New Copy
Excellent obscure jazzy groovers from the groundbreaking team of Cicci Santucci and Enzo Scoppa! Cicci plays trumpet and Enzo plays tenor – and the pair had chops sharp enough to play with the best of the Italian jazz scene of the 70s, but which also graced more than a fair share of private ... CD
Schema (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy
A legendary set of sound library grooves – and actually one of the first to kick off the genre! The package brings together rare tracks from the small Italian Octopus label – not nearly as well-known as De Wolfe, KPM, or other sound library giants – but an equally great source of ... CD

Rotary/Arision (UK), 2008. New Copy

Dot/Universal (France), 1968. New Copy
A crazy album of funky tracks from Lalo Schifrin – very different than most of his other jazz and bossa work! This set's got some very tripped out styles that mix together funky backings, jazzy riffing, and even some nice electronics – a sweet little groove that's even more wild and ... CD

Metronome/Finders Keepers (UK), 1969. New Copy
A groovy German treasure from the late 60s – a sublime little set we'd rank right up there with the legendary Vampyros Lesbos for pure musical genius! Despite the appearance of a group on the album's cover, the music's all made by a couple of studio cats – Horst Ackermann and Heribert ... CD
Columbia/P-Vine (Japan), 1970. New Copy
A killer funky group from early 70s Japan – a slightly large ensemble, but one with some really heavy drums at the bottom – plus some great use of organ and electric guitar! There's a tight brace of horns at the top – flute, tenor, trumpets, and trombone – but the rhythms ... CD
