Halo Wenus (with bonus tracks)
GAD (Poland), 1974. New Copy
Dig space age sounds? Then you're going to find plenty to love here – in a record that's filled with sweet keyboard instrumentals, odd electronics, and lots of lovely little melodies – all brought together in a record that easily transports the listener to the planet Venus! The ... CD
GAD (Poland), Mid 80s. New Copy
80s keyboards sparkle and glisten wonderfully here – a mix of Roland, Yamaha, and Korg keyboards – all played by Mikolaj Hertel in a few very cool suites of instrumental tunes! The music is maybe an extension of 70s electronic sound library modes, but also colored with some of the ... CD
Discomusic (with bonus CD)
Schema (Italy), 1978. New Copy
A wild one from Italian soundtrack composer Piero Umiliani – a set that definitely lives up to the disco promise of the title, but which still has some of the cool playful touches of Umiliani's work in movies too! The record may well be the funkiest that Piero ever cut – and was done ... LP, Vinyl record album
Polskie Nagrania/GAD (Poland), Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)
A record that you might spend a week trying to pronounce, but one that will grab you right away with its sound! Arp Life stick strongly in their best clubby modes here – mixing the keyboards of their name with some sweet disco-styled rhythms, and the occasional female chorus vocal, in a ... LP, Vinyl record album
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
Schema (Italy), 1970. New Copy (pic cover)
A very cool cut from sound library genius Piero Umiliani – served up here in both the original version, and a Gerardo Frisina rework! The original tune has this cool percolating electric vibe that really fits the title – percussion and electronics bubbling together beautifully! On the ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Sonoton/GAD (Poland), Late 70s. New Copy
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 ... CD
To-Day's Sound
Schema (Italy), 1971. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
A gem of a record from the great Piero Umiliani – and maybe one of his funkiest, grooviest projects ever! The set is more sound library funk than soundtrack – and features some very strong keyboard work in the lead on most track – including Fender Rhodes, moog, Hammond, and even ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
Flipper/Cacophonic (UK), Late 60s. New Copy
Mad mad sound library work from Giulia De Muittis – best known as the female voice on the big Italian soundtrack hit "Mah-Na Mah-Nah", and also the wife of famous film score talent Alessandro Alessandroni – although an artist here with a sound that's definitely all her own! ... LP, Vinyl record album
Finders Keepers (UK), 1975. New Copy
Hypnotic sound library material from Italian composer Daniela Casa – some of her rarest work from the mid 70s – recorded in her home studio and never before released commercially! It's very compelling work, with a range of styles from minimalist soundtrack music, to fairly heavy psych, ... LP, Vinyl record album
CAM/Sonor (Italy), 1973. New Copy (reissue)
A beautifully groovy sound library album – one that's in our favorite kind of mode – the same sort of funky and jazzy style as the best soundtrack work of the time! Film maestro Nico Fidenco put together the music – under the name of Donimak – the the sounds have maybe even ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ring/Sonor (Italy), Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)
A grand tour in sound from maestro Carlo Savina – swirling out here in a sweet blend of funky rhythms, strings, and some of the warmer touches you'd find on Italian soundtracks from the late 70s! Savina scored more than a few films over his career, and he's equally great on this obscure ... LP, Vinyl record album
Flipper/Penny (Italy), 1970s. New Copy
An Italian Sound Library compilation series so full of gritty funk grooves, it's positively criminal! This might be the best volume in the series yet – really getting to the nitty gritty of the European soundtrack funk style of the end of the 60s and most of the 70s – some so minimally ... LP, Vinyl record album
Flipper/Penny (Italy), Mid 70s. New Copy LP & CD
Rare tracks from the Flipper Music sound library – a small Italian imprint of the 70s, with a style that's heavy on trippy touches! The work here feels a lot like the kind of sounds you'd get on the best American biker soundtracks of the late 60s – or some of those cool psychedelic ... 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
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
Musica Per Commenti Sonori
Carosello/Schema (Italy), 1969. New Copy Gatefold
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 ... CD
Dramatest
Fonovideo/Schema (Italy), 1974. New Copy
Some of the most offbeat music we've heard from Italian musician Oscar Rocchi – a set that's not nearly as jazzy as some of his other work of the time, and which instead serves as a wonderfully experimental approach to keyboards! The set's done in collaboration with Fabio Fabor (and has ... LP, Vinyl record album
Schema (Italy), 1971. New Copy
A quirky little record from Italian pianist Lelio Luttazzi – a jazz artist at the core, but really stretching out here for this rare sound library session from 1971! The set's got Luttazzi painting in many modes of sound – sometimes upbeat and mod, sometimes a bit spare and ... LP, Vinyl record album
