A totally wonderful collection – one that features a huge amount of instrumental albums from Peter Thomas – an artist you might know better from his ultra-groovy
crime and sci fi soundtrack material! Thomas scored plenty of films in the German scene of the 60s and 70s – but he also got the chance to record a fair bit of albums on his own, too – a huge range of very hip, very mod records that took of strongly from the offbeat styles he was using in movies! On these records, Thomas moved easily from groovy
jazz to bossa nova, mod groovers, instrumental pop, Latin styles, and even a bit of disco-styled cuts later on – all handled with really wonderful instrumentation, and a very cool production style that makes these records come across with the same charm as some of the lighter sounds
on the MPS label. Most of those records have never been reissued before, and they're all lovingly collected here in one hugely-stuffed package, along with full notes on each release, and even a number of tracks from singles too. The collection features a whopping 127 tracks – and includes the albums Piano Strings, Organic, Classics A La Pop, Dancing Ninotschka, Peter Thomas Sound Orchestra Presents, Viva La Feria, Suramericana, Sound News, PTO In Discoland, and Symphonies Of The 3rd Kind – plus lots of work from rare singles and EP releases!
