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 ... $8.99 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 ... $19.99
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".

Zalla (Piero Umiliani)Produzione (orig, Gerardo Frisina rework)/Attivita (Gerardo Frisina rework) ... 12-inch
Schema (Italy), 1970. New Copy (pic cover)... $13.99
A very cool cut from sound library genius Piero Umiliani – served up here in both the original version, and a Gerardo Frisina rework! The original tune has this cool percolating electric vibe that really fits the title – percussion and electronics bubbling together beautifully! On the rework, Gerardo Frisina picks the pace up a bit more, and smoothes down some of the edges – creating a groove that has all the captivating spirit of the original, but even more of a groove. "Attivita" is maybe a bit more spacious, but still nicely groovy – and gets some great contemporary touches from Frisina! 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Martin BoettcherPfarrer Braun ... CD
All Score Media (Germany), 2003. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".
