Carnet Turistico (180 gram vinyl)
Flipper/Four Flies (Italy), 1970. New Copy (reissue)
Wonderful sound library grooves from the Italian scene – a record that's super-obscure, but as hip as the best bigger jazz and soundtrack albums of the time! The set has no filler at all – as every track's a sweet little instrumental, often with a groove that takes off from bossa, into ... LP, Vinyl record album

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

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

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

Il Deserto
Cinedelic (Italy), 1974. New Copy 2LP
A sound library set, but one that's way more than just a batch of short cues or funky instrumentals – and instead, a richly complicated work from Egisto Macchi that might stand perfectly alongside some of the most compelling experimental sides from Italy in the 70s – especially music on ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
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
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
La Fatica
Flipper/Intervallo (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)
A great sound library set, and one with a very unusual vibe – music that comes mostly from the trumpet of Massimo Catalano and the piano and keyboards of Remigio Ducros – the latter of whom is avant sometimes, and more jazzy at other moments! Catalano's trumpet does a lot to warm ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cibernetica
Flipper/Intervallo (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)
A beautiful electronic sound library set from the start of the 70s – and one that's maybe got more of a relation to the Italian avant garde than some of the funkier records of the scene at the time! The feel here is almost in a Cramps Records mode – with electronics used in a way that ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Dance, Sing, & Listen
Aurora Rising (Germany), 1963. New Copy (reissue)
One of the first albums ever made by Bruce Haack – the mad musician who's best known for his electronic work, but who also left behind a huge legacy of self-produced work for children! This album was done in collaboration with Miss Nelson – Esther Nelson, a dance instructor who worked ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Sexedelic
Metronome/Wah Wah (Spain), 1971. New Copy (reissue)
A fantastic record that more than lives up to the promise of its title and cover – and a set that's gone onto legendary fame as part of the music used by director Jess Franco for his Vampyros Lesbos films! The music here comes from the German jazz scene of the early 70s – a sound ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Psychedelic Dance Party
Mercury/Wah Wah (Spain), 1969. New Copy (reissue)
Not a real set of vampires working together to make music – but instead a mad studio collaboration from groovy German funkmeisters Manfred Huebler & Sigi Schwab – and one of the albums that formed the musical blueprint for the famous Vampyros Lesbos films from Jess Franco! This set' ... LP, Vinyl record album

Solar Flares
Peer/Votary (Australia), 1974. New Copy (reissue)
Sublime sound library work from mid 70s Australia – one of the greatest records ever from soundtrack genius Sven Libaek, done in collaboration with a host of the greatest Aussie jazz players of the time! The groove here is laidback, but funky – almost dreamy at times, in the manner of ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Atmosfere No 1/2 (with bonus download)
Cinedelic (Italy), 1971. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
Weird electronics, spacey trumpet, and lots more going on too – all in a set that seems to bridge the gap between early analogue electronic experiments of the postwar years, and some of the ambient sounds to come at the end of the 70s! The music here is never too obtuse, but often does move ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Circle Of Light (green vinyl pressing)
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Free Jazz
Cinedelic (Italy), 1972. New Copy (reissue)
A avant jazz set, but one with a very unusual source – as the music was originally recorded for a very short-run sound library release in the 70s! As with most of those records, the players aren't named – although we can say that Gino Marinacci is in the group on flute – and the ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Under Pompelmo
Cinedelic (Italy), 1973. New Copy (reissue)
Fuzzy funk from the Italian scene of the early 70s – a really landmark record that ties together all the best elements happening in the soundtrack, sound library, and psych scene at the time! The group features two guitars and lots of organ and keyboards from the leader – really ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Montparnasse 2000/Underdog (France), 1975. New Copy (reissue)
One of the funkiest records ever cut by studio jazz genius Janko Nilovic! This set definitely earns the "soul" in the title – as Janko blends his usual mad mix of studio sounds with some heavier 70s elements – including a fair bit of fuzzy guitar, funky beats, and some nice ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Four Flies (Italy), 1972. New Copy (reissue)
A late psychedelic era Italian sound library gem – and rare one, too! Essentially the work of a trio of composers – Romano Rizzati, Renato Sperduti and Franco Bonfanti – it's got a consistent, small combo feel that's reminiscent not only of seedier Italian soundtracks, but also ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
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
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
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 ...
