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". CD features 3 bonus tracks too – new versions of "Alex" and "Mato Grosso", and the track "Just Simple". (Limited to 500 copies.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1979. New Copy
Unusual music from Hiromasa Suzuki – an artist we mostly know as a jazz musician, but who emerges here at the head of a great set of soundtrack-styled numbers! The music appears to be done for television in the late 70s – possibly as a sound library recording, we're not sure – ... CD

To-Day's Sound
Beat (Italy), 1971. New Copy
A gem of a record from the great Piero Umiliani – and maybe one of his funkiest, grooviest projects ever! The set is more sound library funk than soundtrack – and features some very strong keyboard work in the lead on most track – including Fender Rhodes, moog, Hammond, and even ... CD

Retrospective
Morphine (Netherlands), 1980s. New Copy 2CD
Cool 80s electronic work from Charles Cohen – an overlooked American artist from the mid-Atlantic scene, but one whose music rivals some of the early greats from the previous analogue years! At a time when so many others were either overly bombastic, or way too laid back, Cohen had a way of ... CD

Omni (Australia), 1972. New Copy
Sweet and sexy sounds from William Sheller – a rare French set from the early 70s – and a record we'd rank right up there with the best work by Serge Gainsbourg and Jean-Claude Vannier! Sheller's got a similar groove here – a way of compressing the instrumentation right down to ... CD

Bear Family (Germany), 1956/1958. New Copy
2 rare 50s soundtracks by German composer Martin Bottcher – both of them for juvenile delinquent films starring a young Horst Buchholz! The approach here is strongly in the 50s crime jazz mode – and the work sparkles with the best of the American generation of the time, including Henry ... CD

A very cool compilation of vocal tunes from western films – all themes written by Ennio Morricone, and sung by a range of singers that really makes for some fantastic work! The recordings of the set are mostly from the very late 60s and very early 70s – and although the themes are ... CD

Bear Family (Germany), 1960s. New Copy
Beautiful vocal tunes from classic Ennio Morricone soundtracks! Although much of the Morricone work we stock is instrumental, and although some of these scores do have a moody wordless vocal approach, a number of other films that Il Maestro worked on did have strong lead vocal themes – sung ...
