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
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
Fonovideo/Schema (Italy), 1973. New Copy
Weird sounds that definitely live up to the diabolicus and mysterious names promised in the title – as these instrumentals all feel like they've been pulled from some very spooky films from the 60s! The music here is sometimes a bit darker than other records you'll know from Fabio Fabor ... 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

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" ... CD
Fonit/Schema (Italy), 1970. New Copy
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
Fonit/Schema (Italy), 1970. New Copy
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 ... 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
B85 – Ballabili Anni 70
Fonit/Schema (Italy), 1972. New Copy Gatefold
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 ... CD

Liuto/Schema (Italy), 1972. New Copy 2LP Gatefold & CD (reissue)
Percussion and special effects – a really wonderful blend, especially in the hands of Italian maestro Piero Umiliani! The album's one of Piero's more experimental and electronic outings – done for the Liuto sound library label, with lots of cool production techniques that make the ... LP, Vinyl record album
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

Costanza/Schema (Italy), 1979. New Copy (reissue)
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
Folk Group (with bonus CD)
Soundworkshop/Schema (Italy), 1974. New Copy LP & CD (reissue)
Not a folk group of the kind you'd find in Greenwich Village or the Appalachians – and instead an unusual sound library project from maestro Piero Umiliani – one that mixes acoustic instrumentation with his usual sweet Italian grooves! The forward instrumentation here sometimes comes ... 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
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
