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". (Soundtracks, Sound Library) LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited hand-numbered edition of 666 copies – with a very cool bonus poster!)

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

✨✧ Vampires Sound Incorporation (Manfred Huebler & SiPsychedelic Dance Party ... LP
Mercury/Wah Wah (Spain), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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.)
