Riccardo LucianiInchiesta Sul Mondo ... LP
Cinedelic (Italy), 1976. Sealed 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99
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

✨✧ Mondo SangueNo Place For A Man (Il Villagio Delle Donne)(180 gram pressing) ... LP
All Score Media (Germany), 2018. New Copy ... $34.99
The cover looks vintage, the music sounds vintage, but the whole thing is actually contemporary – although also recorded as a soundtrack for the title film, which was first released in 1971! Mondo Sangue did something similar with their last album, and the results here are every bit as great as that one – a really well-done homage to the vintage western soundtrack modes of the spaghetti generation – served up with instrumentation and production that are completely faithful to the genre! Yet there's also something really special going on here – a mode we might call a "no clunker" approach – as every song on the record is really great, and each of them stand out almost like the one or two key songs on older famous soundtracks. Titles include "A Stranger Arrives", "Wanted", "Il Portoghese", "Sto Paese Non E Niente Per Te", "Somewhere In The West", "Farewell", and "The Cult".

Vampires Sound Incorporation (Manfred Huebler & SiPsychedelic Dance Party ... LP
Mercury/Wah Wah (Spain), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
Not a real set of vampires working together to make music – but instead a mad studio collaboration from groovy German funkmeisters Manfred Huebler & Sigi Schwab – and one of the albums that formed the musical blueprint for the famous Vampyros Lesbos films from Jess Franco! This set's a very cool concept album – issued by Mercury at the end of the 60s in Germany, and immediately lost to the shifting sands of time – but with a vibe that easily rivals both the best sound library funk albums of the period, and some of the most unique German experiments to combine funk and psych! Given Huebler and Schwab's contemporary work on a lot of those projects they're perfect for the record – which mixes funky drums with Sigi's tripped-out guitars, Manfred's keyboards, and lots of other great work on electric sitar, Hammond, flutes, and lots of weird percussion. There's some cool voices that kind of drift in and out of the mix, at an abstracted level – but the whole thing's really an instrumental outing – and titles include "The Lions & The Cucumbers", "Ghosts Or Good & Bad Onions", "Drug CX9", "Psycho Contact (parts 1 to 5)", "The Message", and "Countdown To Nowhere". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 1000! Includes booklet of notes, and movie poster too.)

✨✧ Bernard ParmegianiRock ... LP
Transversales Disques (France), 1982. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Never-released music by electroacoustic legend Bernard Parmegiani – created in his incredible studio, pictured on the front cover – and issued here for the first time ever! The sounds were created for a film in the early 80s – and they feature Parmegiani working on a beautiful range of keyboards and other electronic sources – on titles that are usually short, and which provide this great link between the serious sounds of Bernard's roots (he was a member of the GDM group), and the more contemporary schlock use of keyboards in horror films. There's nothing schlock here though – and there's also maybe nothing rock, either, despite the title – and the whole thing is a mindblowing musical journey, with tracks that include "Depart", "Rencontre Brisson", "Serge Sur L'Ile", "Serge Assomme", "Deux Rockers", "Alba & Serge", "Serge & Lola", and "Sortie Cafe Sous La Pluie". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition!)
