Fonit/Schema (Italy), 1973. New Copy
Exactly the kind of record that makes us love sound library records so much – and definitely the sort that sets the style apart from anything else we can think of! Both Sandro Brugnolini and Giorgio Carnini turn in some great work here – a mindblowing mix of modes over the space of ten ... CD
Astromusic Synthesizer
Fifth Dimension (Germany), 1981. New Copy
A record that definitely lives up to its name – given its blend of synthesizer sounds, and it's musical approach to the twelve segments of astrology! Each track has a different astrological sign as its title – "Virgo", "Taurus", "Cancer", "Scorpio" ... LP, Vinyl record album

Fonit/Schema (Italy), 1970. New Copy Gatefold
Grooviness galore – a wonderful set of instrumentals in the best Italian sound library mode – jazzy, upbeat, and put together with all the unusual sonic touches we love from the coolest soundtracks of the time! The style here follows nicely on the B81 album from Fabor – but is ... CD
Fonit/Schema (Italy), 1970. New Copy Gatefold
Fantastic sounds from the Italian scene – a set that's got some of the coolest, grooviest tunes we've heard from that country's sound library generation! Unlike some of the spookier, more avant sets from the libraries, this one's awash in beautiful little instrumentals that fit somewhere ... CD
Fonit/Schema (Italy), 1972. New Copy
The kind of sound library gem that keeps us digging for sound library records after all these years – a treasure trove of groovy instrumental tracks that never got commercial release back in the day! The style here is early 70s Italian – all the best modes learned in the soundtrack ... LP, Vinyl record album

Climax (180 gram pressing)
Octopus/Song Cycle (UK), 1973. New Copy (reissue)
A fantastic set from the legendary Italian Octopus sound library – one of those tiny little record labels from the 70s that didn't care about any sort of labels for the music it released! And yet, if we had to label this one, we'd mark it with a super-big "Groovy" in bold letters ... LP, Vinyl record album
Musica Per Commenti Sonori (with bonus CD)
Carosello/Schema (Italy), 1969. New Copy (reissue)
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
Feed-Back (with bonus CD)
RCA/Schema (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy
One of the best records ever from the Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza – an obscure side project of Ennio Morricone and other Italian composers – working here in a freaky, psychedelic setting! The album mixes sonic experiments with fuzzy guitars, freaky keyboards, and some ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dagored (Italy), 1972. New Copy (reissue)
A swirling mass of sounds – mostly electronic, but often heavily processed too – so that the whole album feels like some tripped-out, psych-jamming version of moog instrumentals! The set was recorded in the legendary Sound Workshop Studio of Piero Umiliani – and was done by ... LP, Vinyl record album
Liuto/Schema (Italy), 1973. New Copy (reissue)
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
Omicron/Schema (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)
Not the sort of psychedelic music you'd expect from an American rock band of the late 60s – and instead, a stunning set of funky genius from Italian soundtrack maestro Piero Umiliani! The record's actually a precursor to Umiliani's famous global score for Sweden Heaven & Hell (Svezia ... LP, Vinyl record album
Schema (Italy), 1974. New Copy
Stunning work from Lesiman – easily one of the coolest, funkiest talents on the Italian sound library scene of the 70s! The groove here is electric, funky, and often slightly trippy – with perfect use of electric bass to get things going in so many different ways, depending on the mood ... LP, Vinyl record album

Underground (with bonus CD)
Liuto/Schema (Italy), 1971. New Copy
Heavy fuzz with a good deal of funk as well – a very unique set from the Italian sound library scene – and one that comes across with the feel of some lost psych record from the underground! The album was produced by Piero Piccioni – and features soundtrack/sound library maestros ... LP, Vinyl record album
Costanza/Schema (Italy), 1979. New Copy Gatefold
A sound library album from the end of the 70s, but one that's got a fair bit of funky jazz in the mix, too – thanks to a lifetime dedication to the music by Amleto "Puccio" Roelens! Roelens was a musician with a long lineage on the Italian scene in the postwar years – and ... CD
Psichedelica
Omicron/Schema (Italy), 1971. New Copy Gatefold
Not the sort of psychedelic music you'd expect from an American rock band of the late 60s – and instead, a stunning set of funky genius from Italian soundtrack maestro Piero Umiliani! The record's actually a precursor to Umiliani's famous global score for Sweden Heaven & Hell (Svezia ... CD
Black Sweat (Italy), 1986. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A very strange little record – one that certainly lives up to its Amazon-related title, but in ways that are quite unusual! The first half of the set features sounds recorded in the jungle, but mixed in the studio – at a level that almost feels more like some obscure electronic ... LP, Vinyl record album
Circle Of Light
Trunk (UK), 1972. New Copy
A really unusual project from electronic music legend Delia Derbyshire – sounds that were created for a film of abstract photographic images, but which work beautifully here on their own! Partner Elsa Stansfield contributes a lot of core elements to the music – Derbyshire works in ... CD
