VariousDramatic Funk Themes Vol 1 – British Rare Grooves From The Themes International Music Library 1973 to 1976 ... CD
Show Up (Germany), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $16.99
Rare tracks in a world of already-rare music – a collection of funky numbers from the Themes International sound library – none of which have ever been released commercially before! The package is a great addition to the realm of sound library funk – and although the names here are familiar from their work for other labels, the tracks are all plenty darn fresh – often a fair bit electric, in keeping with the mid 70s vintage of the music! There's loads of funky beats, bumping basslines, and sweet keyboards lines on most of the cuts – and overall, the work here reminds us of some of the best funk from mid 70s Italian police films, or American cop shows from the same time. CD package features some great notes, as well as original Themes International cover images – and titles include "Flashpoint" and "High Diver" by Alan Hawkshaw, "Flying Squad" by Kenny Salmon, "Soul Train" by Les Hurdle, "Override" by Keith Roberts, "The Observer" by David Lindup, "Soul Slap" by Madeline Bell & Alan Parker, "El Zoro" by Mike Moran, "Sweeney Todd" by Alan Parker, "Get Up & Go" by Kenny Salmon, "Headlights" and "Scenechange 6a" by Alan Tew, "Inside Information" by David Lindup, and "Speed Run" by Alan Hawkshaw. – CD

VariousInner City Beat – Detective Themes, Spy Music & Imaginary Thrillers 1967 to 1975 ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy CD & Book ... $22.99
A killer collection of sound library funk from the UK – a scene that served up some of the rarest grooves of the 70s! The music is every bit as funky as American work from the early 70s – like records from CTI, or blacksploitation soundtracks – but most of it was never issued on vinyl at the time, as it was circulated only for use in film and television – recorded by an elite group of players for very limited use. The rarity is only part of the appeal, though – as the overall vibe is great – and the record has the same instantly appealing feel as other jazz, funk, and soul collections from the always-great Soul Jazz label. This time around, they do a great job of turning their ear towards the rich sound libraries of companies like KPM, DeWolfe, and Conroy – and come up with a double-length batch of funky instrumentals that includes "The Hell Raisers" and "Danger Musicians At Work" by Syd Dale, "Fuel Injection" and "Crossflow" by Ernest Copley, "Superformance" and "Men Of Action" by David Lindup, "Cross Talk" and "Funky Chimes" by Francis Coppieters, "Theme From New Scotland Yard" by Norrie Paramour, "Come One Come All" by Brass Incorporated, "Sparks" by Peter Reno & Barry Stoller, "Gotta Getaway" by Dave Richmond, "Transit" by Clive Hicks, "The Ratcatchers" by Tilsley Orchestral, "Grand Prix" by Johnny Pearson, and "Conveyer Belt" and "Workshop" by Johnny Hawksworth.
