Amazing sounds we've never heard before!

Cinedelic (Italy), 1974. New Copy (reissue)
A single soundtrack – but one that features killer work from a host of the best Italian composers of the scene at the time – including Stelvio Cipriani, Carlo Rustichelli, and Daniele Patucchi – all of whom come up with some great electric funk for the set! The mix of composers ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soundtracks)

Try/Cinedelic (Italy), 1973. New Copy
You gotta love a record with song titles like "Marijuana", "Drugstore", and "Hurrycane" – and we can definitely promise that the overall sound definitely matches those trippy references! The record's one of the most obscure Italian sound library sets from the ... LP, Vinyl record album (Sound Library)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Fiesta/Creole Stream (Japan), 1976. New Copy
Sweet 70s Afro Funk from the great Manu Dibango – a record that adds in a bit more of a full production sound than on his earlier albums, but still sounds pretty darn wonderful overall! There's definitely more of an uptempo club groove going on – and the band has a lot more players ... CD (Global Grooves)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
La Legge Dei Gangsters
Beat (Italy), 1969. New Copy 2CD
Way more than you'd expect from any sort of typical gangster movie – a set of godlike sounds that could only have come from the hands of the greta Piero Umiliani! The music is filled with jazzy touches and these stunning deeper currents – served up in a mix of vibes, flute, Hammond, ... CD (Soundtracks)

Galactic Parables Vol 1
Cuneiform, 2015. New Copy 2 CDs
The most cosmically expansive and exciting work yet from composer/coronet player Rob Mazurek's Exploding Star Orchestra – dedicated to Amiri Baraka, and infused with the righteous, poetic spirit of Baraka's work with Sun Ra! The Exploding Star players include some Chicago underground heroes ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Blue Note, 1965. New Copy (reissue)
An essential Blue Note album by the great vibist Bobby Hutcherson, and a record that's split into 2 different sides, each of which display different aspects of Hutcherson's talents. The first four tracks are mellow and lyrical, with the kind of lovely melodic writing that is best illustrated by ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Schema (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy 2 CDs
Stunning work from Lesiman – easily one of the coolest, funkiest talents on the Italian sound library scene of the 70s! The groove here is electric, funky, and often slightly trippy – with perfect use of electric bass to get things going in so many different ways, depending on the mood ... CD (Sound Library)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Bell/Raven (Australia), 1967/1968/1969. New Copy 2 CDs
An amazing little package of classic late 60s 5th Dimenion – with the complete Up, Up And Away, Magic Garden, Stoned Soul Picnic and Age Of Aquarius LP, back-to-back on 2CDs – and bonus tracks, too! Up Up & Away is the fab first album – and as groovy a batch of pop soul ... CD (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Columbia/FTG, 1976. New Copy
An overlooked smooth soul gem from Tyrone Davis – cut during his early years at Columbia, and recorded with a sweet Chicago finish! Arrangements are by James Mack, who also handled the small backing group on the record – and Tyrone's singing with that raspy style we always love, fused ... CD (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
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 (Sound Library)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Blue Note, 1955. New Copy (reissue)
Great early material from Hank Mobley – a record that's practically a Jazz Messengers album, given the lineup – and which comes across with the fire and power of that classic group at their start! Mobley's tenor is set tightly in a combo that includes Horace Silver on piano, Doug ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Schema (Italy), 1973. New Copy
Stunning work from Lesiman – easily one of the coolest, funkiest talents on the Italian sound library scene of the 70s! The groove here is electric, funky, and often slightly trippy – with perfect use of electric bass to get things going in so many different ways, depending on the mood ...

Som Livre/Far Out (UK), 1975. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
One of the sweetest electric records to come from 70s Brazil – the fabulous first effort from the Azymuth trio, and work that's hardly been matched again! Although the group here have plenty of the warm keyboard touches of their more famous later work, they're also moving in territory that's ... LP, Vinyl record album (Brazil)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Chocolate City/Universal (Japan), 1982. New Copy
The cover's a bit creepy, but the album's still plenty great – old school Cameo still strongly in a funk-based mode, before some of the stiffer grooves of their later years! Bass is the ruler of the set – and most tracks here vamp around in a very heavy P-Funk style of groove – ... CD (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Sylva (CD & DVD)
Impulse, 2015. New Copy CD & DVD
A whole new dimension for Snarky Puppy – and a great one too – as the group works here with larger backings from the Metropole Orkest, who really create some amazing sounds in the process! The core Snarky Puppy approach is at the heart of the record, and the addition of the larger ... CD (Neo Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Interplay
Chesky, 2015. New Copy
A great meeting between jazz piano legend Kenny Barron and the younger, brillant vibes player Mark Sherman – Barron being a veteran of top notch duo settings, and Sherman newer to it – but Sherman succeeds here mightily! Interplay couldn't be a more fitting title, as the pair are ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Back To Love
Shanachie, 2015. New Copy
Lovely modern soul from Maysa – one of the most consistently rewarding voices of the past couple decades – whether it's on her always appealing, often overlooked solo efforts, or her work with Incognito! Back 2 Love covers the full spectrum of her talents, from modern takes on classic ... CD (Neo Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Be! (Germany), 1966. New Copy 2CD
An incredible meeting of talents – both American and European jazz musicians coming together at a festival that must have been one hell of a event – certainly more exciting than just about any jazz festival we've ever attended in our lifetime! Unlike other festival recordings, this isn' ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Cinedelic (Italy), 1973. New Copy (reissue)
Fuzzy funk from the Italian scene of the early 70s – a really landmark record that ties together all the best elements happening in the soundtrack, sound library, and psych scene at the time! The group features two guitars and lots of organ and keyboards from the leader – really ... LP, Vinyl record album (Sound Library)
