✨✧ Martin BoettcherPfarrer Braun ... CD
All Score Media (Germany), 2003. Used ... $1.99
Contemporary music from German maestro Martin Boettcher – but sounds that are often done in his best groovy style of the 70s! The work here is all from a relatively recent TV show, but has this bright, swinging style that's like the grooviest German easy listening or sound library instrumentals of the 70s – often done with instrumentation that's a lot more vintage than contemporary, from the fuller orchestrations down to the keyboard passages and woodwind elements. There's plenty of numbers that feel as if they could have been lifted right off some vintage soundtrack – which makes the album a perfect fit for the All Score label – and the CD features a massive 34 tracks, with titles that include "Pfarrer Braun Thema", "Cantus Delphini", "Steine Zu Brot", "Tourismus", "Tiefe Blicke", "Striptease", and "Am Pool".

Riccardo LucianiInchiesta Sul Mondo (180 gram pressing – with bonus download) ... LP
Cinedelic (Italy), 1976. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $43.99
A sound library set, but one that goes deeper than usual – as the whole project was put together as sort of a concept record, with thoughts on the contemporary scene of the 70s! The two records each have a different title and theme – Stati D'Animo and Diganosi Ecologia – but the musical presentation is very unified, with a darkly brooding blend of electronics, strings, and a few other acoustic elements – used in ways that maybe begin in the harsher side of the Morricone spectrum, but also flows to some warmer moments too. The music's not that far off from the experimental side of Egisto Macchi – but also has more of a soundtrack appeal at some moments – maybe for a dark 70s documentary on pollution or outer space. Titles include "Lo Statico", "L'Oscuro", "Timpan", "L'Astrale", "Interrogativo", "Terra Di Nessuno", "Vita Di Nomadi", and "Tragedia Ecologica". LP, Vinyl record album

Massive Suits Quartet (Dandu Teru)Full Moon Wizard – Mood Music & Unknown Soundtrack Themes (with download) ... LP
Ubiquity, 2015. New Copy ... $13.99 19.98
A contemporary set, but one that's trying for a sound library vibe – in particular, the kind of moody, more electronic work that was coming from the French and UK scenes in the 70s! There's some funky elements here, but they're all moving nice and slow – brooding bass stepping slowly underneath spacey keyboards – all composed and arranged by Gregoire Marty, with a retro vibe that's somewhere in a late 70s/early 80s style. Titles include "March From The Moon", "Full Moon Wizard", "The Lake", "Dancing With Her", "Nymphs", "Spaceship Jazz", and "Grand Empty". (New Grooves, Sound Library) LP, Vinyl record album

Mondo SangueL'Isola Dei Dannati (Island Of The Damned) (180 gram pressing – with bonus poster) ... LP
All Score Media (Germany), 2016. New Copy ... $32.99
A contemporary album, but one that serves as an overdue soundtrack for Luchino Martello's film Island Of The Damned from 1978 – presented here with just the right sort of sounds from Mondo Sangue! The music hits that perfect mix of groovy styles and island elements that we love in Italian soundtracks for tropical settings in the 70s – a bit of electric funk, touches of organic rhythms, and an overall style that's steeped in slinky sex – all with a vibe that's probably closest to the music of Stelvio Cipriani at the time! Production and presentation is perfect – the whole thing hardly sounds contemporary at all – and titles include "La Caccia Di Cocco", "Stranded & Exhausted", "Notte Senza Sonno", "La Castrazione Di Frank", "Rito Di Iniziazione Psichedelico", and "Arriva L'Aiuto".

✨✧ VariousDelaware Road ... CD
Buried Treasure (France), 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A cool collection of sound-library tunes – all put together here as the soundtrack to Delaware Road – a fiction based loosely on the lives of legendary BBC electronic musicians Delia Derbyshire & John Baker! The work is all contemporary, but has a style that really goes back to those early years of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop – with lots of analogue electronic elements at play, sometimes in moody soundscapes, sometimes in styles that have a few more modern touches – but still with a relatively spare, spooky sound overall! Put together by Buried Treasure, in tribute to the vintage material they've reissued – with tracks that include "Cloiser" by Revbjelde, "And We Begin" by Loose Capacitor, "Que" by Asterion, "Closing Distance" by Robin Lee, "Gather The Winds" by Tongues Of Fire, "Hundreds Tens & Units" by The Twelve Hour Foundation, "Twit" by Monoslapper, and "The Shag" by Trouble & Strife.

✨✧ TrigeminoIn Sound We Trust ... CD
Cometa (Italy), 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A contemporary Italian combo, but one who hit a very strong 70s sound library vibe – so much so that the older Cometa label decided to issue this album by the group! And honestly, the set fits right in with the same classic spirit of the legendary Cometa releases from the 70s – all the right sort of funky touches on guitar, keyboards, and even a bit of flute and trumpet too – served up on these beautiful tunes with a really evocative spirit, and recorded without any sort of too-clean, too-modern sound in the production. Titles include "Three Times Of Violence", "Ambush Of Summer", "Burglary Times", "Hospital Shootout", "Shifting Gears", and "Black Belt Ricky Funko". CD
