VariousEasy Tempo Vol 7 – Bikini Beat ... CD
Easy Tempo (Italy), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $7.99
The bikini beat is a great one here – no simple beach music classics, but a range of mod groovers from the classic years of the Italian soundtrack scene! This volume is heavy on electric elements – fuzzy guitars, keyboards, and more – all filtered nicely through a range of rhythms from the 60s and the 70s – bossa, jazzy, and funky – filled with amazing twists and turns throughout! The double-length collection is a treasure through and through – easily one of the greatest soundtrack sets we could have hoped for. Tracks include "Teresa L'Illusa" by Riz Ortolani, "Malizie Di Venere" by Gianpiero Reverberi, "Spy Chase" by Bruno Nicolai, "Airport Rock" by Barigozzi Group, "Shake 2000" by Piero Piccioni, "Amanda Blues" by Gianni Ferrio, "Un Detective" by Fred Bongusto, "Katmandu" by Piero Piccioni, "Theme" by Armando Trovajoli, and "La Bambolona" by Luis Bacalov.

✨✧ VariousCinecocktail 2 – The Second Chance (with bonus remix CD) ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1960s/1970s. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Quite an unusual little collection of Italian soundtrack grooves – one that goes for the "whole picture" of the listening experience, in order to create a mini-movie in sound! Things start out spare and jazzy – with a flavor that's like some of the best Italian jazz scores of the early 60s, but a bit more contemporary – with standout lead lines on piano, trumpet, saxophone, and organ – all to set a very groovy mood at the start. As the collection moves on, things get a bit more upbeat and funky – hitting a more familiar Italian 70s mode, which really picks up speed near the end of the set! The package is a great companion to the first volume, but offers a very different sound overall – kind of a history of Italian soundtrack grooves in 21 tracks – over 70 minutes of music, packaged in a very nice tri-fold cover! A good number of the titles are in versions that have never appeared elsewhere before – and titles include "Satanic (seq 20)" bu Roberto Pregadio & Romano Mussolini, "La Ragazza Dalle Mani Di Corallo (seq 1)" by Roberto Pregadio, "Diamond Trumpet" by Francesco De Masi, "Kriminal (seq 28)" by Roberto Pregadio & Romano Mussolini, "Yeti" by Sante Maria Romitelli, "Funky Disco Soul" by Sante Maria Romitelli, "Amore All'Arrabbiata (seq 1)" by Roberto Pregadio, "Sliding Crime" by Gudio & Maurizio De Angelis, "Tic Nervoso (inst)" by Berto Pisano, "Gangster Story" by Berto Pisano, and "L'Isola Delle Svedesi (seq 1)" by Roberto Pregadio. And if that's not enough, the whole thing also offers a bonus disc of 6 more jazzy remixes by Francesco Santucci – versions of "Diamond Trumpet", "Sliding Crime", "Yeti", "Fay", and "Gangster Story".

VariousFuture World Funk Vol 2 – Further Adventures In Afro, Funk, Dub, & Future World Beats ... CD
Ocho (UK), 2000. Used ... $4.99
Excellent stuff – and surprising blend of tunes that really shows the growth in world beat consciousness that's taken hold of the London dancefloor scene! The set's compiled by DJs Russ Jones and Cliffy – and it's a perfect example of the way the pair blend together Brazilian beats, Latin grooves, and Afro funk influences at their hip sets held at the Notting Hill Arts Club. The cuts mix together recent tracks with the 70s foregrooves that inspired them – and titles include "In The Beginning" by Los Chicharrons, "Divers" by Boozoo Bajou, "Descarga Angixi" by Snowboy, "O Olho Do Lago (Sean Lennon rmx)" by Tom Ze, "Gur Nalon Ish Mitha (sax/whelan mix)" by Bollywood Brass Band, "Ijo Soul" by Orlando Julius, "Triptico" by Gotan Project, "Return To Bass" by Juttla, "Carimbo" by Nacao Zumbi, and "1Breath 1 Echo" by Rhubadub.

✨✧ VariousWomen In Lounge – A Female Vocal Excursion In The Dreamy Land Of Italian Movie Soundtracks ... CD
Cinedelic (Italy), Late 60s/1970s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A really sweet little collection of Italian soundtrack tunes – with a focus on female singers, especially those of the sweet and dreamy type! The set goes way past the obvious Italian tunes – to include a number of wonderful tracks we never would have known about otherwise – many in the Morricone-esque vocalized mode of the early 70s, others in more of a groovy beat-style mode. Tracks include "Hiasmina" by Jean Seberg, "Agente 077 Dall Oriente Con Furore" by Lydia MacDonald, "Let's Find Out" by Isabel Bond, "A Doppia Faccia" by Nora Orlandi, "Basta Buardarla" by Edda Dell'orso, "La Notte Piu Lunga Del Diavolo" by Giulia Alessandroni, "The More I Love You I Love You More" by Shawn Robinson, and "Richmond Bridge" by Julie Rogers. Lots more – with 20 tracks in all! CD

✨✧ VariousStrange Games & Funky Things 3 – Compiled By Kenny Dope ... CD
BBE (UK), 1970s. Used 3CDs ... Out Of Stock
One of the greatest soul compilation series ever! Kenny Dope put together this 3rd volume, and we might be tempted to say that it's the best one of the 3! Strange Games has a deceptively simple approach – but the compilation features the kind of grooves that will keep you coming back and back again, and which will play well with both fans of older soul and modern beat-heads alike. Nearly every track has been sampled at some point over the past 10 years – so you'll recognize many of the beats and riffs – but the tracks are also totally excellent, and hold up extremely well on their own as smooth modern soul classics. Titles include "Superman Lover" by Johnny Guitar Watson, "Standing Right Here" by Melba Moore, "Free" by Deniece Williams, "Holding You, Loving You" by Don Blackman, "Was It Something I Said" by Sylvester, "I've Been Watching You" by Parliament, "I'm Your Mechanical Man" by Jerry Butler, "I Wanna Do Something Freaky To You" by Leon Haywood, "Stars In Your Eyes" by Herbie Hancock, "Thoughts Of Old Flames" by Pleasure, "What Am I Missing?" by Rufus, and "Freddie's Dead" by MFSB. Also features a few cuts that have been on other compilations – by artists like Ramp, Labbi Siffre, Love Unlimited Orchestra, and Barry White – but they're all great anyway, and are fine to have again! CD version features 3 CDs! Disc 1 is a mixed set of tracks – and discs 2 and 3 are unmixed, and include 21 cuts between them. Packaged in a totally great slipcase, too! CD
