The fab first volume of this legendary series – filled with great music, wonderful images, and a really wide range of sounds and notes on the Italian soundtrack scene of the 60s! The package is filled with classics – and is a great place to start, especially if you want to go way past the obvious – and really dig into all the greatness that Italy had to offer in the 60s – the wealth of mod, jazz, and bossa-styled sounds that were crafted for the endless array of great movies coming from the scene.

✨✧ VariousEasy Tempo Vol 2 – The Psycho Beat ... CD
Easy Tempo (Italy), 1960s/1970s. Used ... $8.99
Mindblowing work from the Italian soundtrack scene of the 60s and 70s – a true treasure of tracks that more than lives up to the "psycho beat" promise of its title! The tunes are a heady brew of tripped-out styles – floating organ, slinking bass, stepping strings, fuzzy guitar, and bumping drums – all in a space that's just the right place between funky and easy – with a sublime kind of sound that's unlike anything else we can think of! If you've only ever dug funky groovers from the Anglo side of the spectrum, this is the kind of record that will definitely open up your ears – and even though the collection's an old one, it's still one of the best illustrations around of the genius of Italy at the time! Titles include "Fotomodelle" by Piero Umiliani, "Red Face" by Barigozzi Group, "Shake Psycho" by Mario Molino, "Schegge" by Lesiman, "Rapimento In Sicilia" by Nino De Luca, "Essere Donna" by Piero Umiliani, "L'Appartamento Vuoto" by Gianni Ferrio, "La Fine Di Cobb" by Stelvio Cipriani, and "Hurricane" by Cesco Anselmo.

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 ... $19.99
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".

✨✧ VariousDopebrother Studio A – Presented By Kenny Dope & The Undercover Brother ... CD
Dope Brother, 1970s/2009. Used ... $4.99
Massive sounds from the Dopebrother Studio – home to some of the funkiest Kenny Dope productions of the past few years! The grooves here are mostly older nuggets from the 70s – rare funk, soul, and club numbers – mixed by Kenny and the Undercover Brother in ways that really bring up the funkiest energy of the tunes – lots of hard drums, great breaks, and crisp instrumentation that actually sounds way more dope than if you were spinning a copy of an original funky 45! Most tracks on here have only ever been issued as singles, so the full length collection makes for a great way to dig into all these massive grooves in one place – at a price that's pretty damn hard to beat. Plus, there's even a few unreleased tracks on here too – sure to please even the folks who already own a few of the singles! Titles include "How You Gonna Do It (Undercover Brother edit)" by Lenis Guess & The Raw Soul, "Foxfire (Dopebrother rmx)" by Kenny Smith & The Fox Fire Band, "Party & Get On Down (Undercover Brother edit)" by BAB, "Creative Happiness" by Steve Marshall, "I Can't Dance (Undercover Brother edit)" by Jimmy James Thomas, "We Got To Get Together" by The Masterminds with Lady Bianca, "Your Chicken Ain't Funky Like Mine" by Dirty Red Morgan Group, "Skunkie (Undercover Brother edit)" by Kenny Smith & The Maximum Feeling, "Waiting At The Station" by Jimmy James Thomas, "Do What You Like (Undercover Brother edit)" by 400 Years Of What, and "It's Over Now (Undercover Brother quiet storm mix)" by Manzel.

VariousFuture World Funk Vol 2 – Further Adventures In Afro, Funk, Dub, & Future World Beats ... CD
Ocho (UK), 2000. Used ... $9.99
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.

VariousModernism – 24 Tracks Of Hip-shaking Club Soul & Vintage R&B ... CD
Kent (UK), Mid 60s. Used ... $6.99
Not the modernism of high art or experimental literature – and instead the upbeat, totally groovy sound of British mods in the 60s – served up here in a wicked batch of American soul tracks from the time! The style here is a bit Northern Soul, but also has a bit more of the blues and R&B elements that inspired some of the Brit rock acts of the time – but served up here by the originators from our side of the Atlantic, and with the kind of attention to special tracks and rare singles that we've come to expect from the great folks at Kent Records! This is more than just a rehash of older hits or overplayed numbers – and instead, the carefully-chosen set list really gets right to the heart of the matter – and backs up its musical magic with a great set of notes, photos, and label scans. Titles include "Ain't That Soul" by Teddy Reynolds, "Do It" by Pat Powdrill, "Crossroads In Your Heart" by The Shirelles, "Beg Me" by Chuck Jackson, "Cinderella Jones" by Sammy Jones, "We Gonna Rub (part 1)" by Joe Johnson, "Night Beat" by Kenny Smith & The Lovelighters, "Magic Potion" by Lou Johnson, "The Life Of The Party" by Joan Moody, "The Phillie" by The M&Ms & The Peanuts, "Private Eye" by Wallace Johnson, "Listen To Me Baby" by Ralph Ventsha & Red Julian Quartet, and "When One Of Them Won't" by The Turn Arounds.
