✨✧ VariousRare Music From The Cometa Library Vaults Vol 1 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Cometa (Italy), Late 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Really cool music from the Italian Cometa sound library – all material never commercially issued at the time, a fair bit of which is awash in sweet electric touches! Some tunes have an electric funk approach – almost like funky fusion of the time – while others are darker and moodier – using electronics that sometimes veer towards some of the more experimental sides of the Italian 70s scene – drawing a link between these sound library experiments, and some of the more widely-circulated work by the artists on Cramps Records. A number of tracks almost move into an early 80s German electro mode – and titles include "Movimenti Ritmici" by Teimar, "Dissenso" by G Tommaso, "Mistery Tour" by Teimar & G Ducros, "Funny Mood" by G Carnini, "Giochi Della Gioventu M3" by M Guantini, "Incessante" by S Chimenti & E Pieranunzi, and "Barcamenandoci M25" by M Faneschi.

Alessandro AlessanadroniAfro Discoteca EP ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1978. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $24.99
Four sweet tracks from the great Alessandro Alessandroni – very groovy material that takes his sound library genius into the Italian club scene – with a set of tracks that are years ahead of their time! The album and all titles have "Afro" at the start – but there's more of an electro vibe overall – one that uses Alessandroni's long experience with analogue electronics and keyboards, and forges those sounds onto a pulsating groove with a set of rhythms that are maybe more pre-house than anything you'd guess from the disco generation! All tracks are instrumentals, and titles include "Afro Voodoo", "Afro Darkness", "Afro Sentiment", and "Afro Discoteca". LP, Vinyl record album

Alessandro AlessandroniFischio Amore Mio (colored vinyl) ... LP
Flipper/Dagored (Italy), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
A beautiful 70s sound library album – and one that focuses strongly on the whistling talents of Alessandro Alessandroni! Make no mistake, this isn't the kind of cheesy whistling that you'd hear on midcentury pop singles – as Alessandroni first honed his craft on Italian western scores of the 60s, then went on to make great music of his own in a number of styles – all of which seem to come into play here, in a melange of mid 70s tracks that evoke spaghetti soundtracks, bossa elements, and even bits of jazz and funk – on a set of 15 short themes that really sound great together! Some titles have acoustic guitar in the mix, others have more electric instrumentation – and titles include "Tea Room", "Harlem Swing", "Marea", "Costa Azzurra", "Amore Mio", "Night Swing", "Ritratto", "Boy Scout", "Gianicolo", and "Aria Di Quartiere". LP, Vinyl record album

Angelo Baroncini/Bruno Battisti D'AmarioMusic For Movement (180 gram pressing) ... LP
RRC/Sonor (Italy), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
Music for movement, but of so many different kinds – movements that are funky and groovy, but also some that are a bit more laidback as well – all captured nicely in this rare Italian sound library set from the end of the 60s! A fair bit of the tunes fall into the kind of upbeat, groovy style that we love in Italian film work of the period – but there's also some more experimental numbers that, while not totally experimental, definitely seem to lay back a bit more and let the instrumentation trip out in casual ways. The record does a great job of balancing funky numbers with mellower ones – and titles include "Soul's Fire", "Relax In My Hole", "Stressing Heart", "Steel Lung", "Moon Ice", "Black Feeling", and "Eco's Drops".

✨✧ Alessandro AlessandroniIl Tempo Dello Spirito (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Flipper/Spettro (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
An overlooked set from one of the all-time greats on the Italian sound library scene – an artist who made so many wonderful contributions to soundtracks in the 60s, then went onto record albums like this, which were barely heard by most folks at the time! The music is rich in chorus vocals, but in a way that's different than some of Alessandroni's work with I Cantori Modern – as the style's less groovy or jazzy, and maybe almost more ancient overall – somewhat redemptive in the end, not like any sort of spooky chorus work – but sometimes somber, too. There's organ on a few tracks, but of the cathedral type – again with a mix of more spiritual and blue-tinged modes. Titles include "Pellegrinaggio", "Salmo Gregoriano", "Il Tempo Dello Spirito", "Festiva", "Giubileo", "Elevazione", and "Black Allelujah". LP, Vinyl record album
(Hand numbered limited edition of 500!)

✨✧ Alessandro AlessandroniLost & Found – Unreleased Soundtracks & Library Treastures From An Italian Maestro 1972 to 1978 (180 gram pressing – with bonus CD) ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $32.99
A stunning lost chapter in the career of Alessandro Alessandroni – one of our favorite soundtrack artists of all time! Alessandroni wrote almost as much music for sound libraries as he did for films – and as with the tracks on the set, some of his best nuggets have been lost to the mainstream for decades – lurking in the vaults, and ready to spring forth and maybe even topple some of his better-known work! That's definitely the case with these cuts, which really shed light on a funky stretch of Alessandroni's career in the 70s – a moment when he was still working with all the warm bossa and jazz charms of his previous efforts, but also stepping out with these sharper, funkier styles too – sometimes even with a stronger vocal lead than normal. About a third of these tracks feature lyrics – sung by Lorena, Giullia De Mutiis, and by I Cantori Moderni – and although the tracks are from different sessions, they really work well together – thanks to the collection talents of the folks at Four Flies. Titles include "Underground Disco", "Sea Breeze", "Shot Undercover", "Flirt No 2", "Night Fly", "Soul Meeting", "After Crime", "Sweet Emotions", "Obstinate Pop", and "Synthetic Rendezvous".
