✨✧ VariousSonda – Muzyka Z Programu Telewizyjnego – Library Music From Sonoton Vaults ... CD
GAD (Poland), 1971/Early 80s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Classic cuts from a famous Polish TV show – mostly pulled from the rich catalog of the German Sonoton sound library! The music here is very heavy on keyboards and tight, dramatic grooves – music that's often in the best modes that so few sound libraries could manage at the time – a style that still hangs on to the higher quality inspirations from 70s funk or soundtrack material, without as much of the clunk that more commercial libraries ran into. Things are also usually full and focused, too – still quite electric and electronic, but without any too-dreamy soundscapes or new-agey bits. The book features full notes on the show and the music in both English and Polish – and titles include "Sound Tide" and "Speedy" by The Milan Pilar Group, "That's Fancy 1" and "Threat To Research" by Sammy Burdson, "Biopulse 2" and "Genesis 1" by Claude Larson, "Back From Wonderland" and "Alexandria" by Mladen Franko, "Star Drops" and "Foreground" by Jeff Newmann, "International Scoop" by Ted Atking & Alain French, and "Touch Tone Keyboard" by Sam Sklar & Gus Galbraith. Also includes one older British cut – "Visitation" by Mike Vickers – used as the main theme of the show! CD

✨✧ VariousSonda 2 – Muzyka Z Programu Telewizyjnego – Library Music From Sonoton Vaults ... CD
GAD (Poland), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Totally great sound library material from the Polish radio scene of the late 70s and early 80s – music that never made it to our side of the Iron Curtain at the time, but which totally shows the same growing love for keyboards and electronics you'd find at the KPM or DeWolfe studios too! The cuts here are wonderful – really cool killers that still hang onto a bit of the sound library funk of the previous generation, and some of the older European soundtrack modes too – but which deliver the goods with snakey keyboard lines and loads of cool moogy bits that still retain some analogue elements, mixed with a growing love of digital styles too. The package comes with a sweet book of notes in English – and titles include "Struny" by Adrezj Korzynski, "Drzewo Z Toledo" by Omni, "Blue Water 1" by Jim Harbourg, "Na Czarno" by SBB, "Breezy Shore" by Mladen Franko, "Szczeliwy Pazdziernik" by Arp Life, "Mysterious Forest" by Ted Atking & Alain Feanch, "Tzeci Test" by Wladyzslaw Komendarek, "Surfing Romance" by Klaus Weiss, and "Robotory 1" by John Fiddy & Band.

✨✧ Mladen FrankoAmazing Space (Amazing Space Vol 1/Amazing Space Vol 2) ... CD
Sonoton/GAD (Poland), Late 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pair of totally wonderful albums from sound library composer Mladen Franko – both originally released by the Sonoton label in Germany, and presented here as a single CD! Franko's less well-known than some of his bigger European contemporaries, but has a similarly deft hand with a groove in this setting – an ability to focus quickly on a key rhythm part and hip instrumental twist, with an especially strong approach to keyboards – which range from Rhodes-y groovy to spacey moogy! Mladen played all the instruments himself, but the overall feel is more in a classic sound library studio mode – and although both records were issued in 1980, they have a sound that's much more mid 70s overall. Titles include "Venus & Aquarius", "Back From Wonderland", "Sound Safari", "Wind In Your Hair", "Midnight Party", "Yellow Baloon", "Melancholy Girl", "Lazy Daisy", "Leading Star", and "Clown Town".

VariousElectronic Toys – A Retrospective Of 70s Synthesizer Music ... CD
Normal (Germany), 1970s. New Copy ... $14.99
A legendary collection of electronic grooves – one that takes off from the Perry-Kingsley generation, into groovy new territory! Most of the cuts here are from sound library sources – KPM, Selected Sound, and Sonoton – and the numbers are short and catchy, but without the kind of cloying elements you'd find in standard moog pop records – no analogue electronic covers of 60s rock hits here, and instead a wealth of original compositions that sparkle with a really fresh sort of imagination! Most tracks are pretty spare, and titles include "The Oiy Machine" by Dave Vorhaus, "Bits" by Roland Kovac, "Gefahrenzone 1" by Gerhard Trede, "Childrens Carnival" by Ted Atking/Alain Feanch, "Keystone Capers 2" by Eric Peters, and "Ambling Antics" by Ron Geesin.

✨✧ VariousPop Boutique 1 – A Sophisticated Selection Of Unreleased Soundtrack Tunes ... CD
Spinning Wheel (Germany), 1970s. Used ... Out Of Stock
The great first entry in this overlooked series – a mix of sound library gems and other soulful delights from the European scene – most of which never got release over here on this side of the Atlantic! A good number of tracks are from the Sonoton label archives, and they're sprinkled here with a few other key cuts as well – all in a hip blend of funky fusion, electric jazz, and electronic numbers – most of which are quite different than the usual sound library bag! Titles include "The Camp" and "Don't Play That Game (part 2)" by Klaus Weiss, "Whistler On The Rocks" by Eric Vanell, "Asteroide" by Racines Synthetiques, "Integrate" by Sam Sklair, "Wall Paper Music 6" by Dave Sarkys, "Actual 39" by Georges Rodi, "Iron Wood" by Africna Voodoo, "Pop Boutique" by Fritz Maldener Trio, and "Light & Shadow" by George King Organ Sounds.
