John Baker, Delia Derbyshire, & David CainBBC Radiophonic Music (pink vinyl pressing) ... LP
BBC/Silva Screen (UK), 1968. New Copy ... $29.99 35.98
One of the first great recorded documents of the genius of the BBC Radiophonic Music laboratories – home to pioneering electronic talents Delia Derbyshire, John Baker, and David Cain! The trio are heard here on a set of amazing tracks recorded for BBC radio plays in the 60s, plus a bit of early TV work too – tunes that are sometimes spooky and noisy, sometimes playful, often tuneful, and always revolutionary – really groundbreaking use of electronic instrumentation in the world of popular entertainment! Baker and Derbyshire have gotten especially strong acclaim in recent years – and along with Cain, the set presents their early genius in all its glory – on tunes that are still pretty amazing after all these decades! Titles include "Milky Way", "PIGS", "The Frogs Wooing", "Boys & Girls", "Time & Tune", "Artbeat", "Sea Sports", "The Missing Jewel", "Air", "Crossbeat", and "Autumn & Winter". LP, Vinyl record album

Sven LibaekMusic Of Sven Libaek ... LP
Festival/Votary (Australia), 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99 32.98
One of the earliest albums ever from the great Sven Libaek – an artist who'd be better known for his famous soundtrack work in the 70s! As you might guess from his name – Sven hails from Scandinavia – but he made most of his career and best music in Australia – and this album was one of his first! The style here is jazz-based, but Libaek already shows those great flowing modes that he brought to his music for film – and the presentation is superb – as the ensemble is loaded with some of the best Australian jazz musicians of the period – including Don Burrows and Errol Buddle on reeds, George Golla on guitar, and John Sangster on vibes – adding in so many great touches in a way that almost makes the whole thing feel like a Cal Tjader recording at times. Titles include "Happy City", "Done Away With", "Race Pace", "Unwritten Movie", "Lake Moondara", "Northern Territory Baroque Theme", "Gold Coast Fanfare", and "Man & A Mural".

Yoshio OjimaUne Collection Des Chainons 1 & 2 – Music For Spiral ... CD
WRWTFWW (Switzerland), 1988. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99
Incredible sounds from Japanese composer Yoshio Ojima – music created for the Spiral art center in Tokyo – one of the most beautiful buildings we've ever visited in the city! The spot is a special blend of art and commerce – and the music by Ojima shifts between the sorts of sounds you might hear in an installation, and work that's similar to some of the environmental music of his contemporaries – all delivered with spare electronics and a minimalist mode that really shows the fantastic direction some of these Japanese composers were taking after the initial Brian Eno experiments with ambient music, particularly Music For Airports. Titles include "Mensis", "#1", "Glass Chattering", "Entomology", "Flius", "Entrance", "Float On", "Esplanade (live)", "Les Trois Graces", "Atrium", "Market", "Sealed", "Entomology (Let's Go Go)", "Parjanya", and "Orientate".

✨✧ Tony SchwartzSounds Of My City – The Stories, Music, & Sounds Of The People Of New York ... CD
Folkways, 1959. New Copy ... $12.99 16.99
Tony Schwartz must have been one of the coolest cats working on the New York scene in the 50s – not a musician, or a singer – but instead a sound artist whose legacy was dedicated to documenting the city in a very poetic way! This album may well be Tony's masterpiece – a long tone poem love letter to New York – narrated by Tony, but filled with sounds that he captured on his travels around the city – people, ships, machines, animals, vehicles, and lots lots more – all with a keen ear for the vibrancy of the New York story at its best – the kind of true promise the city has to offer, captured here in an array of actual sounds from the postwar years! (Comedy/Spoken, Sound Library) CD
(Special limited CD – pressed up for us by the Smithsonian Folkways label. Comes with original cover artwork, and the CD also features a PDF file with the original liner notes and other materials from the original record release.)

Astral Dimension (Fabio Fabor)Galassia M81 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Edizioni Minstrel/Spettro (Italy), 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
Lost sound library genius from Fabio Fabor – working here under the name of The Astral Dimension – which is a very good tag for the sound on the set! Although recorded in 1981, the record has all the warmth of some of Fabor's 70s material – lots of swirling, spacey keyboards – some in these streams of color that are really beautiful, and make you feel like you're taking a trip through the stars, with everything slowing down at warp speed – others in more spare, linear passages that evoke a slightly different mood, and balance things out nicely. The whole thing almost feels like a later update of the old "trip to space" genre for mood music records – and titles include "Antares", "Via Lattea", "Nebulosa", "Beta 700", "Stella Nova", "Monte Palomar", "Eclisse", and "Saturno".

✨✧ Braen's MachineTemi Ritmici E Dinamici (with bonus CD) ... LP
Liuto/Schema (Italy), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
Maybe the coolest and grooviest music we've heard from the obscure Braen's Machine sound library project from early 70s Italy – a record that's less tripped out than its predecessors, and instead has this great style that's heavy on bossa elements and funky jazz! The vibe's a bit like the best Italian soundtracks of the period – especially work by Morricone or Trovajoli – and the group still apparently features contributions from Alessandro Alessandroni, working with Piero Umiliani – which gives the whole thing a very strong soundtrack pedigree! Instrumentation includes some mighty nice keyboards – both Hammond and electric piano – and lots of great production on familiar instruments, which can give things like a snare drum a very odd crackle, or a flute this weirdly spacious sound. Titles include "Movimento", "Dinimica", "Gara", "Passeggiata", "Aspetti Grotteschi", "Esercizi Ginnici", "Ritmica Sportiva", and "Rinuncia". LP, Vinyl record album

Sandro Brugnolini/Stefano TorossiMusica Per Commenti Sonori (with bonus CD) ... LP
Carosello/Schema (Italy), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
An Italian funk double-header – a sweet little set from the end of the 60s, and one that features killer cuts from both Sandro Brugnolini and Stefano Torossi! We love either artist on their other own records, but there also seems to be something about putting them together here that makes them even better than before – certainly funkier, as the album's full of the kind of sharp, hard-grooving titles that first made us fall in love with sound library records in the first place! The date of the album's 1969, and both musicians make nice use of psych elements in their instrumentation – adding a bit of fuzz, wah-wah, or trippy guitar in just the right spaces – never going over the top, or getting too indulgent – but just moving in a groove that's tightly jazz funky at the bottom, and maybe a bit freaky at the top. Wonderful work throughout – and titles include "Sweet Beat", "Repetition", "Starter", and "Makkaresh" by Stefano Torossi – and "Wawa", "Motuproprio", "Polyphony", and "Flyer" by Sandro Brugnolini.

Stelvio CiprianiUST 7013 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Fonit Cetra/Sonor (Italy), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
We love Italian composer Stelvio Cipriani for his cop, crime, and erotic soundtracks of the 70s – and he sounds equally great here in the setting of a rare sound library album from the same time! The album's got no proper title or cover, but it's a wonderfully rich batch of music that's especially strong in the slinky/sexy Cipriani mode – with great keyboards and woodwinds carving out some themes so strong, you'd swear you heard them in a European film of the time! Things never get too funky, but they're also never sleepy at all either – and titles include "Hippy Love", "Fantasma Spiritoso", "Orizzonti Fatati", "Danza Degli Gnomi", "Orchidea Nello Spazio", "Incontro Di Fate", and "Rimani Amore".

✨✧ Coastal CountyCoastal County ... LP
Preservation (UK), 2019. New Copy ... $19.99
Their name and cover may be a bit obscure, but Coastal County do a fantastic job of paying tribute to the glory days of both the sound library and soundscape scene – somehow managing to work together influences from both David Axelrod and the best of the KPM scene! The music is all instrumental, and the tracks have the kind of currents that you'd hear on older UK and EU sound library gems – but there's also a moodier, earthier sense of production – with lots of shadows around the edges, and spooky currents that really give the whole thing a lot of depth – handled with just as much vintage care as the instrumentation – which is filled with funky drums, moody basslines, and just the right amount of fuzz on the guitar.. In a world where so many others claim influence from the old school, but can hardly deliver the right sort of sound, these guys do a superb job – on titles that include "The Chaser", "Holy Monday", "Supra Naturel", "The Landing", "The Drop", and "Cielo Aperto".
