Cosmic NeighbourhoodLibrary Music Vol 1 (10 inch LP) ... LP
Kit (UK), 2020. New Copy ... $12.99
Cosmic Neighbourhood move into the realm of sound library music with this delightful little record – a 10" album that's filled with short, captivating tunes – mostly melodic, and with electronic components, but delivered in a style that's really organic, and very beautiful! At some level, the music almost feels like a more condensed take on some of the Japanese ambient modes of years past – but with a faster progression of ideas, given the shortness of the tunes. Yet there's also something maybe a bit more universal – as if Cosmic Neighbourhood have found a way to create the sort of little tunes that might be rumbling around somewhere out there in nature. Titles include "Nature Spirit", "Waving Tree", "Night People", "Witches Hat", "Pine Wizard", "Overgrown Garden", "Fortune Teller", and "Caterpillar". LP, Vinyl record album

Craig KupkaCrystals – New Music For Relaxation 2 ... LP
Folkways, 1982. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 24.99
Beautiful sounds from the overlooked minimalist composer Craig Kupka – a set that features two very different tracks, each issued by Folkways Records – with a presentation that's both far away from the more academic records of the time, and some of the self-released work of the growing New Age underground! Side one features the long "Trombones Of Lithia" – piece that's heavy on the resonant sound of the trombone, but stretched out in this really longform way – nicely meditative, and clearly processed with a bit of electronics, but still with a warmly acoustic core. Side two features "Crystals" – a tune that has more keys, but a mix of 70s analogue and early 80s digital – again given some elements in the background that make the whole thing feel a lot warmer than you might expect, yet still with some of the experimental elements of earlier electronic composition.

(Beautiful heavy reissue – done just like an original Folkways album!)

Sven LibaekMusic Of Sven Libaek ... LP
Festival/Votary (Australia), 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 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 – Music For Spiral ... LP
WRWTFWW (Switzerland), 1988. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $23.99
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 on this volume include "Mensis", "#1", "Glass Chattering", "Entomology", "Flius", "Entrance", "Float On", and "Esplanade (live)". (Rock, Sound Library) LP, Vinyl record album

Luis Bacalov & Ennio MorriconePitturamusica ... LP
Cinedelic (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $40.99
An album with a very basic cover, but one that's got a very deep dimension in sound – thanks to some very groundbreaking work from Italian sound library giants Ennio Morricone and Luis Bacalov! The music is maybe mostly in the territory of Morricone's experimental work – especially his contributions to the legendary Il Gruppo – and the style is very different than we're used to hearing from Bacalov, who we know best for sweeter themes and action-drenched soundtrack work! Instead, the music here comes from a variety of familiar instruments – piano, violin, cello, trombone, and voice – but all used in really unusual ways, with properties that go far beyond their usual sonic expectations – at a level that's really striking throughout! The vocal numbers almost recall some of the dadaist experiments of earlier in the century, and the piano and string passages would be right at home next to work by Luigi Nono or Gyorgi Ligeti. The work was created for an exhibition of paintings by the painter Masci – and titles include "Corpopaesaggio 2", "Mela", "La Gioconda", "SB", "Conchiglia", and "Venere D'Urbino".

Alessandro AlessandroniRitmo Dell'Industria #2 ... LP
Grand Prix/BTF (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99 29.99
The sound of industry, circa 1969 Italy – which means that everything sounds a heck of a lot groovier than you might expect! Soundtrack genius Alessandro Alessandroni handled the album – and it's completely fantastic right from the very first note – nothing like an industrial album, nor even some of the peppier "industry themed" sound library sets of the European postwar theme – and instead, the music is full of jazzy elements and cool wordless vocals – especially those scatting styles you'd know from Alessandroni's work with I Cantori Modern! Tremendous throughout – and quite possibly one of the grooviest albums the composer has ever given us. Titles include "Moto Blues", "Dialogando", "Circolazione", "Basso Regime", "Vie Motrici", "Escursione", and "Numero Uno". LP, Vinyl record album

Alessandro AlessandroniTrip Around The World ... LP
Stella/Saar Milano (Italy), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
Beautiful sounds from one of the coolest Italian composers of all time – one of our go-to favorites for both soundtrack and sound library material! This set has Alessandro Alessandroni hitting some sweet 70s modes – funky at times, slinky and sexy at others – all with this fantastic ear for sound and space, with a quality level that really sets him apart – and which makes this totally obscure gem every bit as great as some of the key Italian cinematic classics from the period! Imagine – you're working in the very solitary space of a sound library, knowing that you're going to make a record that will never be for sale in the record racks – yet you completely bring your a-game to the proceedings. That's what makes Alessandroni such a giant – and we're sure you'll agree once you hear this music! The set features some great harmonica bits from Gianfranco Di Lelio, plus cool keyboards, guitar, and titles that include "My Sitar", "Seven Steps", "A Day In The Sun", "Oceano", "Everest", "Beach Party", "Summer Breeze", "Desert Inn", and "Love On The Sand".

✨✧ Stelvio CiprianiUST 7013 ... LP
Fonit Cetra/Sonor (Italy), 1976. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
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".

(180 gram vinyl.)
