Rene CostyExpectancy – Collected Library Music ... CD
Sdban (Belgium), 1970s. New Copy 2CD ... $29.99
Really wonderful sounds from an overlooked sound library genius – and an artist who's also a great one to turn to if you want to hear the groovier side of the spectrum too! Rene Costy recorded these tracks on the 70s scene in Belgium – which is why he's probably not as well-exposed as sound library creators from the UK, France, and Italy – but that obscurity is also what makes some of these tracks so great – as the groovier numbers come across with a freshly bubbling feel that's very positive, and has the warmth of some of our favorite French soundtrack tunes from the 70s – and the darker tracks have an unusually sharp approach, but somehow while still sounding tuneful! Keyboards are the dominant instrument – and CD one features "grooves", which make up the biggest part of the collection – followed by a shorter array of darker tracks on the "scapes" of CD two. Titles include "Danger", "Ever Faithfull", "Cue Joe", "Automatisme", "Scrabble", "Longuest Night", "Country Dance", "From Time To Time", "Barbara's Dream", "Machinery", "Anxiety", and "Phantasmes".

Mikolaj HertelDzwieki Dalekiego Swiata (with bonus tracks) ... CD
GAD (Poland), Mid 80s. New Copy ... $8.99
80s keyboards sparkle and glisten wonderfully here – a mix of Roland, Yamaha, and Korg keyboards – all played by Mikolaj Hertel in a few very cool suites of instrumental tunes! The music is maybe an extension of 70s electronic sound library modes, but also colored with some of the tunefulness that you'd find in more conventional 80s electronic sounds in pop, soul, and soundtracks – gentle lyricism that's never too overdone or commercial, but which keeps things plenty tuneful throughout, and makes the album at lot more interesting than some more new age-styled keyboard sessions of the time. The album features three longer thematic suites – "Zaczarowane Ogrody", "Koekcja Lalki Barbie", and "Dzwieki Dalekiego Swiata" – divided into shorter tunes – and the set also features 5 more bonus tracks too.
